Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms * 2 Bathrooms * Sleeps 10 * Unit 1701

Leap of Faith is the perfect place for a beach getaway! Come enjoy Alabama's beaches the way they used to be. The Rookery unit 1701 is located 14 miles down Fort Morgan Road, away from all the high-rise condos in Gulf Shores. You can enjoy uncrowded beaches, nature trails, wildlife, and plenty of room to relax.

Leap of Faith has been recently remodeled. This cute beach cottage has hardwood floors throughout, comfortable seating, 3 flat screen TVs with over 140 HD channels, games for the kids, DVDs to enjoy, free wireless internet, and much more! The master bedroom has a king sized bed. The guest bedroom has a queen sized bed and bedroom #3 has 2 sets of full/twin bunks. There is plenty of space for families of all sizes! Bed linens, bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths, and kitchen towels are provided. A few extras are added in to make our guests feel at home (garbage bags, dish soap, laundry packs, toilet paper, and paper towels). The unit has a full sized washer and dryer to make laundry easy.

There are 2 swimming pools and a spa to enjoy. The largest pool is a zero entry pool that is perfect for splashing, sunbathing, and swimming. The pool is just steps away from your front porch. Golf carts are allowed, so bring one and enjoy easy access to the beach or just explore the area. BBQ grills and picnic tables are scattered throughout The Rookery, so bring your charcoal and grill out. There is a large tennis court and lots of space to park your boat or golf cart.

Leap of Faith is a non-smoking unit. Pets are not allowed.

About Clint & Donna Nicholson

We fell in love with Gulf Shores back in 2001 when we visited for the first time as a couple. Over the years we found ourselves coming back to the beach more often and introducing our children to the beach as they were born. After years of beach trips, lots of driving around looking at beach houses and dreaming of owning our own we finally decided to take a leap of faith and purchase one! Our goal is to honor God in all we do, including sharing our beach house with others.

Clint & Donna Nicholson purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Clint & Donna Nicholson chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We have a growing family and we enjoy spending time with friends. We love how much room The Rookery cottages offer. There is room for everyone to enjoy! The zero entry pool is especially great for our little ones.

Loved everything about this place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Leap of Faith. The accommodations were great, everything we needed was within reach or within a short distance. Plenty of room for the 10 of us. Also loved that the beach was not crowded and we were away from all the touristy attractions. Would definitely recommend Leap of Faith to anyone and would stay here again without a doubt.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The only problem was it wasn't long enough!! This was our first time staying anywere in AL and we fell in love! The energy, the people, the sites were wonderful! The location of this house and the pool and hot tub right outside was perfect for both familys! We will definitely be back!

Clean & Cute

  • 5 of 5

My group of 5 enjoyed our stay. The house easily slept my crew and 2 others (1 of the nights my sister & nephew stayed too). This house was clean and well-maintained. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations for our beach week!! We loved the pool, hot tub and closeness to the beach. The Rookery is a quiet vacation community. We will be back!!!!

A Perfect Vacation and Location

  • 5 of 5

We were not sure what to expect when booking this for our family of 4, 2 of which are under 4. It was much bigger inside than the pictures suggest and the location is right next to the walk in pool. Our 3 year old went swimming each day we were there. Very clean house, well decorated, and very spacious. If we were in that area again we will definitely see if this is available. Thanks Clint and Donna.
