Property description

When was the last time you saw thousand of stars in the night sky? We are off the beaten path just enough that you can see them here on a clear night. Just imagine watching them dance lazily across the southern sky while the salt air of the Gulf of Mexico breezes through your hair as you relax on the screen porch or melt away the day's activities in the hot tub.

We chose this condo because it's not like rest, it's not like the typical tall condominium that is covered in asphalt and concrete. The Rookery is nestled in the scrubby palmetto woods of the Alabama Gulf Coast, with tall pines dotting the short landscape so that the afternoon and evening breezes can gently whisper through them, bringing perfect endings to perfect days.

It reminded us of the not too distant past of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach when fish camps dotted the landscape where people would stay to enjoy the Gulf's catch. There's not too many places like this left. There's no asphalt to burn your feet on a hot day, just a wooden walkway that runs alongside a little bayou to get to our condo. Who knows, you just might see a big Blue Heron wading for his lunch, or a turtle sunning himself on the bank. There might also be a wild Guinea Hen or geese cruising through the parking lot. They get close enough for the kids to chase them around if they want. Don't worry, they're not much bigger than a chicken.

We want you to relax and enjoy your vacation, with the quiet comfort of The Rookery and the great price we offer, plus the tons of activities just a short drive away, you can have the best vacation you've had in a long time.
