Overview

Alabama Gulf Coast 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.

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.

Exceeded expectations, will stay at Rookery again

  • 5 of 5

The listing was everything we hoped for and more! Excellent communication from the property manager, property was clean, comfortable, and exceeded our expectations, and we will be returning to the Rookery next year. Keep in mind this property is at least 15-20 minutes from downtown and "Spring Break Central" if that's the atmosphere you're after, but it's only 3 minutes from the beautiful white sand and gulf.

Conched out at the Rookery

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as described, clean and very well maintained. The owners are also very easy to communicate/work with. We really enjoyed our stay at the Rookery! It is a secluded community, in a quiet area of the Gulf Shores, that allows you to relax and enjoy your vacation, without a lot of other people around. We had coffee every morning with "Fred," the small (2-3 feet long), resident pond alligator, while sitting on the porch. There is a fence that prevented him, from visiting up close and personal. The full kitchen there enabled us to cook meals whenever we wanted. There was plenty of room for all six of us to be together in the condo. The pool is a 2 minute walk away. The beach is a 5 minute car ride or a 10 minute walk away. We enjoyed both of them every day! We also enjoyed great seafood at a reasonable price at Tacky Jack's restaurant and Bubba's Seafood House in Orange Beach. We highly recommend making advanced reservations for a dolphin cruise out of Orange Beach, as well as walking out on the state pier there, to see the boats and the fish they catch! Our kids also enjoyed riding the Ferris Wheel and the light show at night at the Wharf shopping center there. We look forward to another vacation at the Rookery soon!

A Wildlife Refuge borders the cottages, a wildlife watcher's paradise. Easy beach access across the street, no crowds, no high rise. We are 6 miles from the historic Fort Morgan: Take the Ferry to Dauphin Island and visit Fort Gaines & the Dauphin Sea Lab . Explore all of the three marked Bon Secour trails that are close by. There are two championship golf courses that are located within a few miles and of course dont forget about the Tanger Outlet Center in closebyFoley.
