Property description

Get away from the sardine canned condominium lifestyle and hurry up and wait atmosphere and come to where you only have to share the golden beaches and sparkling pools with just a few others. Relax in the shade of margarita lifestyle living--no stress, no hurry--a true get away from it all! Also, if you need more than one unit for your group, we work with our next door neighbor in booking whenever possible.

Located approximately 14 miles down Highway 180 from Gulf Shores is the Rookery, a development of quaint cottages. It has two pools; (a large one with a tiki bar across the bridge and a smaller one just behind us). It also has an outdoor jacuzzi.

Our cottage is the first one as you enter which makes it the closest to the beach. Public beach access is across Fort Morgan Road. Turn right leaving the Rookery, go 1/2 block and turn left on Cortez. The beach is straight ahead. Total distance is approx equivalent of three city blocks.

There are two top rated golf courses within a few miles: Kiva Dunes and The Peninsula, and several more within driving range. At the western end of Hwy 180 is historic Fort Morgan and a ferry that takes you on a 45 minute journey to Dauphin Island.

We have new TV's and living room furniture.

This unit is completely furnished in beach chic style comfort and freshness. It has one king-size bed, one queen-size, one set of twin beds. All have great mattresses! There is no phone so we suggest bringing your cell.

There are two TV's connected to Directv satellite with local channels available and a DVD player. Internet is provided via a wireless router.

Each bath has a shower and tub. The kitchen comes with a full-size stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave.

There is a washer and dryer. Dishes and linens are provided. Everything you need is within a few miles, so if you do not want to leave, you do not have to.

To get an idea on our location compared to the pool and beach, scroll down this page to location. Click satellite and zoom in with the '+' button. Our unit is the first one on the left after you turn in to The Rookery.

Long term rental rates are available.
