Overview

About the property

The Coastal Retreat Beach Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 comfortably)

The Coastal Retreat Beach Cottage is located at the Rookery, has recently been professionally decorated and furnished with care and detail. Snowbirds welcome. GPS address is 5601 Hwy 180, Unit 2701, Gulf Shores, AL.

The Master bedroom has a King bed, the second bedroom features a Queen size bed, and the third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds.

The Rookery development is located at mile marker 6, which is 14 miles down Fort Morgan Road from Gulf Shores. The Rookery was designed to be a natural and quiet resort and is located adjacent to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. This is a wonderful place for families to swim, play and explore.

The complex has two pools: a large, zero entry pool with a tiki bar and a smaller one on the left as you enter the complex. The pool facility also has restrooms as well as an outdoor jacuzzi. The pools are heated beginning March 1. Around the pool, you will also find public charcoal grills as well as a tennis court.

Public beach access is across Fort Morgan Road. Turn right leaving the Rookery, go 1/2 block and turn left on Cortez. The beach is straight ahead. Total distance is approx equivalent of three city blocks.

A marina, boat dock, and restaurants are located nearby. There are nature trails for walking and hiking, as well as a bike path.

There are two top rated golf courses within a few miles: Kiva Dunes and The Peninsula, and several more within driving range.

We accept electronic bank transfers and credit card payments through VRBO and other forms of payment through PayPal.

About Pat

Our Family is from Texas.

Pat purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Pat chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We bought The Coastal Retreat Beach Cottage because we love the Gulf Shores area and like to get away from the hustle and bustle but also be close to the action if we choose. We also love having the pool when we get tired of playing at the beach. We have the best of all worlds.

Great stay in Fort Morgan

  • 5 of 5

Pat's property was everything promised and more. Beautiful beach decor, comfortable beds, peaceful location and short walk to a gorgeous white sand beaches. Found Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan to be very friendly, many great places to eat, lots of sites to see and beautiful sunsets.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very nice and we had everything we needed. Perfect for our party of six. We never felt crowded. We enjoyed the large pool every afternoon. ( no jellyfish! ) . The ocean was a quick drive and very quiet. We saw lots of marine life ( jellyfish invasion almost every day) , however we did not let it spoil our trip. We met great people, ate lots of good food and hope to return.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have rented a cottage, all our stays have been in high rises. This was a wonderful change. It was nice to be away from the traffic and crowds. The cottage is well appointed with everything you could possible need and all the conveniences to save you time. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms are beautifully appointed, the beach theme is carried through the whole cottage. We were so close to the pool, which was wonderful. Close to Tacky Jacks and Sassy Bass both great places to hang out and eat. Town is only a 20 minute drive. Pat was easy to reach if we had a problem. Our daughter, son in law and 2 grandsons were with us and they really enjoyed their stay as well. Thanks Pat for having such a charming and comfortable cottage to share.
