vacation rental description

Forget the high rises with elevators and extended hallways. Enhance your vacation and  capture the perfect blend of nature and relaxation at the Rookery --  a small community of single/duplex cottages nestled in the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge – 15 miles west of Gulf Shores at the 6 mile marker on Fort Morgan Road.

Park right by your cottage for easy, convenient access to your front door.  Enjoy the on-site amenities: two saltwater pools (the large pool has a zero entry for the little ones); a hot tub for the adults; a tennis court and a family grilling area. Or head to the white, sandy beach (0.4 miles) across the street and watch the dolphins swim. You can then relax and enjoy the sounds of nature on your screened-in front porch.  If you're a web surfer the cottage has broadband internet access for your convenience.

The "smoke-free" cottage can accommodate up to eight guests and is bright, cheerful and fully furnished.  Satellite HDTV with DVD, full size washer and dryer. The master bedroom has a king size bed.  The guest bedroom has a queen size bed.  And the third bedroom has two twin beds.  The living room has a queen sleeper/sofa. There is ample parking for a boat. The marina is only 4 miles away.

The Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge borders the cottage. Explore any of three marked Bon Secour trails (all within a ten minute drive). Visit historic Fort Morgan, six miles away at the end of the island. Take the ferry to Dauphin Island and visit Fort Gaines or the Sea Lab Estuary. Three  championship golf courses are located nearby:  Kiva Dunes (2 miles),  Peninsula (10 miles) and Gulf Shores Golf Club (14 miles). Bargain hunt at the Tanger Outlet in Foley, Alabama.

A short fifteen minute drive into Gulf Shores and you can visit Waterville, the Gulf Coast Zoo, or the “Track” (offering amusement park rides and arcade games). Numerous local restaurants also await you.


We do not rent to groups under the age of 25.

First Vacation to the Beach

Review submitted: August 11, 2013   Date of arrival: August 4, 2013

Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful cottage. We loved everything about it. It was great to meet you both! It was our first vacation to the beach and we couldn't have had a better time. Our girls loved the pool and truly the water heater was one of the best parts -- with 7 of us it was over used for sure. If you are ever in St Louis look us up!

Love, the Meyers
