Beautifully Decorated Coastal Cottage With Easy Beach Access

This lovely cottage is perfect for families and those who want to enjoy the incredible, sugar-white Alabama beaches without the crowds, traffic and congestion of high-rise condos yet only fifteen minutes from Gulf Shores and its many attractions, restaurants, entertainment and shopping. The Rookery III is across Fort Morgan Road from the public beach access .25 mile from cottage. Beach can be accessed by car, golf cart, bikes or walking. Golf Cart option available for guests at $250 flat fee for your entire stay.

The terrific Sassy Bass Restaurant, Grocery and Beverage Store are close by so you don't need to travel far for anything!!

A true escape!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I really enjoyed our little escape to this cottage right before the busy season of life starting back up! The layout is perfect. The rooms are spacious & living room / kitchen area was a nice open concept which is great for hanging out during vacation. The screened in porch is a wonderful bonus! Our littles LOVED it. They were protected from the bugs & thought they were so grown up because they could go out there & watch TV & be "big" kids & it allowed us adults to watch something on TV that wasn't cartoons in the living room. I have never stayed somewhere that had so many towels! That really impressed me. I didn't have to constantly wash towels or be crazy mom running around behind kiddos hanging them up after showers to preserve them. The checkout process was a breeze. The easiest one I have ever experienced in all of my vacationing. The beach was very close & the golf cart made it a fun adventure to get there. The pool was a very short walk & never crowded. The community was nice & quite the entire time we were there. I highly recommend this for families or couples. It is a perfect mix for all & very well stocked.

Beautiful house, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandra’s beautiful cottage. High end finishes and decorated very well. The cottage was filled with everything you need for your stay. Just bring food. 2 large king bedrooms and the 3rd bedroom has a great bunk bed for multiple kids. We highly recommend paying the extra for the golf cart. Dedicated path for a 3 minute ride to the beach. The cottage also includes all you need for the beach. Sand toys, boogie boards, 4 beach chairs, and an umbrella. The complex has 2 great pools, 1 being zero entry and they’re open until 10:30 which was great for evening swims after a day at the beach. We look forward to staying here again, all pros and zero cons with the cottage!
