          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: The Gulf shores of Alabama hold many dear memories for our entire family.

          Why the Owner Chose The Rookery:
          The Rookery is a step back in time. It is a place of peace and relaxation; family and fun. Awake to the sounds of birds chirping and fall asleep to the sounds of the Gulf waves. Far enough from the high rise condos and crowded beaches to create your own special moments yet close enough to Gulf Shores to enjoy all of the restaurants, shopping and entertainment of a big city. Step out the front door of this cottage into a sandy paradise surrounded by beaches and the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. The view from every window reminds you that you are somewhere special. Walk the beach or bird-watch along the many nearby nature trails. Play tennis, ride bikes, swim, cook-out and just enjoy.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          10 minute leisurely walk to the beachfront, 10 minute drive to the historic Fort Morgan with ferry boat to Dauphin Island. A full-service mini-mart (including pizza, ice cream and a liquor store) located across the main entrance to the Rokery for neccesities or a quick meal; Gulf Shores shopping, restaurants, and endless entertainment opportunities
