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.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at "Leap of Faith". It was comfortable, cozy, clean, and had everything we needed. Just minutes to a quiet beach. My family of 7 enjoyed every minute we were there! If we ever make it back, we would definitely stay again.

Great vacation rental for the Fort Morgan/Gulf Shores area

  • 5 of 5

Leap of Faith was perfect for our family of five. Comfortable furnishings and beach house decor made it a great home base for our beach vacation. It was fully stocked with games for the kids and lots of dishes and kitchen gadgets in addition to all kinds of great sand and water toys for the kids to play with at the pool and beach. Donna and Clint even left a cute welcome card with a gift card that could be used at local restaurants. We would definitely stay here again!
