Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Peggy,

I just wanted to say thanks again for allowing us to return to your cottage. It was just as nice as when we stayed the first time, and we definitely plan to get in touch with you again in the future. We had a great time, and we loved seeing the little alligator again, and all the little tree frogs. The only down side was that I had a hard time wanting to pack up and go home!

Nice quiet cottage at the beach

I've stayed here several times, and each time is wonderful. Mrs. Peggy is a delight to deal with. We will stay here for our vacations as long as she will have us!

Perfect for Family Time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my mother in law and sister in law and her family. Plenty of room for everyone. Loved to the close proximity to the pool which even in the middle of July was never crowded. The Rookery Community was awesome, everyone was friendly. The beach was so much quieter than the public beach at Gulf Shores. There is a nice market nearby that had any last minute things you may forget. The owner is super nice to work with and is always available for questions or advice about the area. This property is 15 miles from town (Gulf Shores) but if you are looking for some quiet down time this is the place for you!

Great place! Would stay here again!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location! Away from the main area of Gulf Shores which is nice. Had the pool just steps away which was a bonus and was very clean! The place is well stocked with dishes. Having a washer/dryer is nice! Also the owners were quick to respond when we had questions during our stay!
