About the property

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.

The pictures do not do this place justice!

My family had a great week. Mr. Paul was great to work with. We loved the cottage and beds were all very comfy. There were so many little extras in the house that we have never had before when we have checked into a room (hand soap, dishwashing powered, coffee filters, basic necessities that you normally have to buy) We enjoyed the screened in porch and the rocking chairs. The outdoor shower was great for the kids and for keeping our beach items clean. We would love to stay here again!

Great little cottage with great layout. The beds were very comfortable and the location was awesome. I do recommend getting bug spray that will work for noseeums because they were pretty prevalent there.

Everything I had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. The cottage was amazing. It was very relaxing & the front porch was so relaxing especially at night. I felt very safe in this location as well. There is a little market down the street to get supplies, pizza places near by, beach access across the road. The beach is so nice. I went during off season and it was so quiet. Amazing. The bed was also very comfortable. Plenty of room for a family here too. I would pick this cottage over other at the Rookery because of the little pond in front of the porch! I sat on the porch and read a lot. I was able to watch the bird, turtles and other wildlife. At night this pond comes to life. You can hear the frogs, insects, and birds and its really calming. The place had a really nice "homey" feeling. I felt like I was living in a dream for a short week.

I guess the only thing I would say is the bathroom could use a little TLC but I am more than happy with my stay. It was fantastic. Thank you so much!!!

Nice Duplex

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived the wifi password would not work but was able to sort that out the next day. So we had good wifi the rest of the week. We wished that there had been a TV in each bed room. The area was nice. The restaurants were a ways away. The Tackey Jacks was good. Behind the pines was good for a hole in the wall. The gulf was a good 15 minute walk for me. If you go and are not in tip top shape a golf cart. That would have been nice.
