About Clint & Donna Nicholson

We fell in love with Gulf Shores back in 2001 when we visited for the first time as a couple. Over the years we found ourselves coming back to the beach more often and introducing our children to the beach as they were born. After years of beach trips, lots of driving around looking at beach houses and dreaming of owning our own we finally decided to take a leap of faith and purchase one! Our goal is to honor God in all we do, including sharing our beach house with others.

Clint & Donna Nicholson purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Clint & Donna Nicholson chose Gulf Shores

We have a growing family and we enjoy spending time with friends. We love how much room The Rookery cottages offer. There is room for everyone to enjoy! The zero entry pool is especially great for our little ones.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is decorated with such a laid back, comfy, beachy atmosphere and we felt like we were at home. Very clean and organized and had everything we could or would need! Donna & Clint were readily available via email and responded so quickly with any questions we had! My husband was thrilled to find that they had not only a coffee make BUT a Keurig too! Highly recommend this house to anyone. We hope to return again♥

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved it here and plan on coming back next year. It is about 20 minutes from Orange Beach but we found the beaches near us to be much nicer. The home was clean, well furnished, and the neighborhood was nice and quiet as well. The pool area was a great addition and we spent almost every night after the day out at the pool. There is a local store very close to get anything that you would need and we were far enough away from the beach that our area wasn't affected by the hurricane waters. The owners were very responsive and kept us updated on hurricane evacuations and the weather on our way down. If your looking for a place away from the city and don't mind a little drive this is a great place to stay.

Lovely Rental

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Leap of Faith. The location is a very brief drive to the beach, it is right by the pool, and it is a pleasant unit. The renters were very thoughtful in what they provide for their guests. We truly appreciated the nice bath towels, the comfy bedding, and even some unexpected helps like a box fan in each bedroom (in addition to the ceiling fan). They even had a good washer and dryer - such a help when you have kids on vacation. We would love to stay here again in the future. Thank you!

Amazing girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were truly thrilled when we arrived at the beach house. A quiet & refreshing area with plenty of opportunity to relax, laugh, play and check out from crazy life at home. We enjoyed the sensational taste of costal food at Sassy Bass, the beach was a quiet walk away. The beach chairs & umbrella was perfect to take to the beach & claim our perfect spot for the day. Our last evening we enjoyed watching Sweet Home Alabama.
