We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beach cottage. It was much nicer than we expected. It was very convenient to have the washer and dryer available. The over all grounds of the Rookery are extremely well kept and the area is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the pool and the grills which are in easy walking distance. The parking by the closest beach access is very limited and it is not within walking distance to the cottage. We chose to drive in to Gulf Shores to go to the beach. Not bad or good, just helpful information. I would definitely stay again.
The cottage was quiet, cozy and comfortable. Everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The decorating was very nice. A little far from the beaten path was more enjoyable. I would highly recommend it as a vacation rental. The key fob to the pool wasn't in the lockbox and we were unable to enjoy the pool for a couple of days, but that was finally rectified. We will definitely book again in the future.
Cottage was nice and had everything needed for a comfortable place to stay. It was a beautiful drive to the cottage among old oak trees hanging over the street. A peaceful place to get away.
The cottage was very nice and comfortable. Everything was clean and it was exactly as described. We had a wonderful time. The beach was a little bit further than what we were expecting but on the up side the beaches were not crowded at all. Definitely would go back.
This cozy cottage was a great place for our family vacation. It's a little secluded (a 15-20 minute drive to town), but we really enjoyed the remoteness. The Rookery community is nice and has a laid back vibe, which is perfect when you're vacationing. This cottage is set back a little, so you're not directly facing any neighbors. The pool was a minute's walk, and the outdoor shower was a plus. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. We enjoyed it so much we are thinking about buying here.
I brought my wife and 3 grandchildren on vacation and stayed for 6 nights. This Cottage is actually a duplex but you'd never know it because we never heard people on the other side of it and the way this is constructed, you'd never see them coming or going, This was a nice, and mostly clean place to stay with only the master bathroom having a very slight issue with the shower curtain being moldy (very easy to fix). The beds were comfortable and I felt there was plenty of space for me and the family. The kids (ages 2, 5 and 6) LOVED the pool here and we spent a lot of time in it. One bonus, and very nice detail, is the information the owner provided about local attractions and things to do while staying there...nice touch!
Over all, I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay that is away from the busy touristy part of Gulf Shores, which was 20 minutes away. I found the local businesses to be staffed with very friendly and helpful people, the beaches to be less populated, and just very relaxing in general
This place is off the main Gulf Shores strip and takes about 15 min to get into town but so worth it!! Extremely quite and clean! The beach access is easy and less than a min. Away! Since the condo is away from the main scene the beach is less crowded! Great place to stay!
