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.

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.

Quaint and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and clean coastal cabin. My family and children loved our stay here. The community pool and hot tub were a hit with the kids. Short drive to a quiet, pretty private beach. The only drawback was it is far from shops and restaurants. Definitely hit the store on the way in, it’s a 20 minute drive to get groceries/supplies. Overall, an awesome spring break destination!

Ft. Morgan cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time while we escaped from the frozen north. Cottage is well furnished, clean and welcoming. Luckily they keep pantry staples from prior guests and those things (seasonings especially) really came in handy. We weathered a storm that caused power outage for the whole peninsula and the owner was very prompt in getting us information about the recovery. Within just a few hours all was back to normal and we were none the worse for wear. Just 2 blocks or so from the beach in quiet location was just what the doctor ordered for us Snowbirds.
