Gulf Shores Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 Full Laundry, Full Kitchen

Tranquility Awaits You at The Rookery, a small community of cottages nestled in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge.

Our cottage has been recently updated to include painting and furnishings. We are steps away from two pools/jacuzzi/tennis court and 3 blocks from the beach on the Gulf Of Mexico. We are six miles from the Historic Fort Morgan and 15 miles from all the hustle and bustle of downtown Gulf Shores. Plenty of parking.

Experience what Gulf Shores was like 30 years ago!

We have 80+ pictures and many testimonials on our facebook page under the name 'Conched out',

Front porch: The front porch overlooks a serene pond. Sit on porch in the large rocking chairs and enjoy the scenery!

The beach: The beaches are three blocks away - a short walk and a shorter drive! There are miles of beaches with no high rises, there are only private homes along the long stretch of beach. Privacy!!! You will almost think you have your own private beach.

The pools/jacuzzi/Tennis court: There are two pools in the complex. The large pool is a zero entry pool with a Tiki hut.

This house is perfect! It's very secluded from the hustle of tourists! Nice and quiet and you can still hear the ocean! It's just a short way from the beach which was very nice for us. It has plenty of space for my family of 6 and 1 yr old granddaughter. The beds were great, the furniture was very nice as well. It's very well kept and I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay! The owners were gracious and very prompt with any questions I had. It really was HOME for the week.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Conched Out!!! We enjoyed the location, the spaciousness of the condo, in short - everything! Beach is close enough to leave your umbrella and chairs when you come in for a break but not so close that's its crowded.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property during off-season in December. The unit is located in a secluded area of Gulf Shores. It was one of the units in a duplex building of Rookery condominium. The cottage was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Although it was not equipped with everything we'd love to have, we enjoyed our time there and considered this stay as one of our best.

The Rookery

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay and will be staying again next year. The only negative were sugar ants in the kitchen and on the kitchen table other than that very neat and clean. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Loved the baby alligator visit every morning and evening.
