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 Gulf Shores

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.

Beautiful and felt like home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful place immediately felt like home. It's beautifully decorated and very spacious. The proximity to the beach was an added bonus. It's just a quick drive a couple of blocks to the water. We were welcomed by Pat and he made us feel at home. Even in the hurricane that came our way! Thank you so much! We will definitely be back and would love to stay in this perfect beach cottage again.
