Relaxing stay at beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Rookery in Fort Morgan. We traveled with my parents and 4 children ranging in ages from 3-12.

The house was clean and very well appointed. We cooked most of our meals at home and the owner had everything we needed. They provided a nice selection of games and movies for rainy days.

The pool was only steps away and has a graduated beach entrance which is great for small children. They had it heated which made it possible for us to swim (even when the night temps dropped).

Two golf carts were provided for beach transport which was so helpful. We could have walked, but it was much easier to take the carts with the kids and older parents.

We enjoyed seeing the fort at Fort Morgan and also hiked in the nearby nature refuge. The outlet stores and restraunts of Orange Beach were about a 25 minute drive.

The only downside to the area is the bugs which were bothersome a few mornings and evenings on our trip. We brought bug spray (and the owner had also set some out) which helped.

My youngest's favorite part of the trip was playing in the front yard which is all sand (like a giant sandbox) under the palm trees. We would definitely return to this rental.

Relaxed and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in very nice condition. It was nice to be away from the busy downtown yet close enough to drive in anytime. The golf cart was great to get to the ocean. We will come back again for sure!

Peaceful getaway for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! The house itself is fully stocked with anything you could need and more. Sits back off the main road so you don't hear the traffic. I would buy this place in a heartbeat! Having the golf cart to drive the short distance to the beach was very handy and accessible, plus fun to drive around. We watched tv when it rained and enjoyed the beaches or pool when it didn't. Quick drive from Gulf Shores proper, loved that it wasn't "touristy" and crowded out here. Driving to the house from Gulf Shores city felt like we were driving home, that's how cozy it is. I only have one recommendation to the owners: install an outside shower. We tried to get all the sand off that we could with the hose, but sand being what it is gets everywhere. We would definitely stay here again and again. The owners have taken care of everything you could want out of a cottage rental. I would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful place to vacation at the beach.

Thank you for a home away from home.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Shoot the Moon, which is perfect for our family of four. The accommodations are nice and the location is quiet. The cottage basically has everything you would need on your stay- a well furnished kitchen, washer/dryer, plenty of linens/pillows/towels and a golf cart for easy beach access. The cottage is also stocked with a variety of board games, DVDs and a video gaming system, which were great for keeping the boys entertained when it rained! The beach is about .30 miles from the condo and is absolutely beautiful. It is more or less a private area as the beach is never crowded. The property manager was responsive and provided us with the information on check-in in advance. My only complaints would be those that stayed prior to us did not leave the golf cart charged (as it says to in the checkout instructions) and the BBQ grill has seen better days (but there are several community grills onsite). Other than that it was perfect- I think we have made Gulf Shores and the Shoot the Moon Cottage a family tradition!

The cottage is located in the Fort Morgan area, which is a distance from Gulf Shores proper. We have been going to this area for many years and each year it seems like there is another new restaurant, a place to purchase grocery items, etc. So the area has more amenities than it used to. If you have been hesitant for this reason, I would recommended giving it another look! The area is so quiet and peaceful, much slower paced- which is perfect for a vacation.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully furnished beach cottage is a comfortable and cozy vacation spot. We loved the fully equipped kitchen which felt like home. The golf cart made trips to the beach a delight. The house is right across from the pool and hot tub which we all enjoyed. The owner and Teresa were quick to respond to our needs and questions and helped to make our time here wonderful. The kids loved the bunk bed room. Shoot the Moon offers all the amenities for a memorable week near the beach.

We enjoyed our stay & loved being so close to the pool. The golf cart was nice to have as the beach

was a little farther than we expected. Very nice & quiet property. The only problem we had was the grill needs replaced & we never could get connected to wifi. I would highly recommend this property to others. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.
