The Rookery condo description

Get away from the hustle and bustle of crowded beach condos and relax! Located 14 miles west of Gulf Shores, nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge is The Rookery. A small community of pastel colored tin roofed beach cottages located near the beach. The community features two pools, including a fantastic Large Zero Entry Heated Pool, Jacuzzi, Tennis Court, BBQ pits, and picnic tables in the communal area just steps away from your door.

If you love history, a 4 mile drive west leads you to historic Fort Morgan. There you can catch the Mobile Bay Ferry to Dauphin Island where you can visit the Sea Lab and Fort Gaines. From Dauphin Island, you're just a short drive to Mobile with it's historic USS Battleship, Aviation Museum and boundless restaurants and theatres. Heading 14 miles east on quiet Fort Morgan Road will take you into the heart of Gulf Shores for shopping, amusement parks, movie theaters, nightlife, restaurants, mini golf, and more.

And don’t forget the beach! White sand beaches and blue green water stretch as far and you can see in either direction. Fort Morgan’s low population density means that even in the middle of the summer season, beaches are not crowded. In spring, winter, and fall, you can spend the whole day on the beach and never see another soul! Watch the dolphins as they playfully swim and jump through the waves, or watch the sunset as it disappears beyond the horizon. The views are exquisite without being blocked by high rise buildings.

Duke's Dunes is a roomy cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Master has a King sized bed, the second has a Queen, and the Third has twin bunk beds, as well as a Queen sleeper sofa. It provides a cozy cottage for 2 with plenty of space for 8! It's a perfect place for a family vacation or a quiet get-a-way. The unit is fully equipped, including TVs in every bedroom, as well as a large, HD flat screen in the great room. The cottage also has a screened-in porch for relaxing.

Whatever your life style, from nature enthusiast to history buff, from shopper to golfer or sailor, you will have endless choices of activities or leisure when you stay at Duke's Dunes. Come to unwind, relax, and enjoy all the wonders of the Gulf and surrounding areas!
