Overview

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.

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 ...rent a golf cart. That would have been nice.

The property is very nice. It's in a nice quiet community and has everything that you need to enjoy your time on the gulf coast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would recommend the property to anyone we know that might be vacationing there in the near future

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

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.
