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 the 1st and second bedrooms, 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!

Very happy with this place! Property matched the pictures and came with everything mentioned.
Friendly neighbors, and Beautiful property. It was nice to have the beach so close. And it was nice to be in a quiet area. Kitchen was full of everything we needed and then some. There were plenty of towels and and wash rags. Beds were nice, clean and comfy. It’s about a 15/20 min. Drive into town with shops and more restaurants, but it wasn’t an inconvenience in any way. Very happy with place and will stay here again.
Great place to truly relax
We visit the Rookery several times each year and this was one of the best units we have seen. Clean and quiet area.
Great location and exactly as it was pictures and described
The property was great!
The kitchen could be better equipped. Other than that we loved it!
Weather was perfect!
The duplex was very spacious and quiet. We had everything we needed when we arrived and grandson was able to play on the screen porch. Enjoyed the pool and how close it was to the unit. Driving to th beach and back wasn't too bad but wish we had had a golf cart to go back and forth. Will definitely stay again!
Peace and quiet.
The location is perfect, it is quiet and not overly populated. The duplex is nice and very roomy. There needs to be some deep cleaning done inside the house, it was dusty and the fold out couch was pretty dirty and falling apart, those would be my only complaints. There is definitely a biting gnat problem. This is not the owners fault but I felt I needed to mention it. We were not able to let the kids outside to play and we couldn't sit on the porch because of bug bites. The porch needs some deep cleaning and updating but that wasn't a problem since we couldn't sit outside anyway. We did hear that rubbing imitation vanilla on your skin would keep the bugs away, we tried it and it is the only thing that helped so I feel I should mention that. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is super nice. Pool is perfect for small children. The distance to the beach was not bad at all. We had a great time overall.
