Super Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house at The Rookery! We have stayed here multiple years and will certainly come back. It’s clean, perfect size, and a great location to pool and beach.

Well appointed rental

  • 4 of 5

The house is great: beds are comfortable, baths adequate, kitchen well appointed. Having washer/dryer is essential for a beach trip! The insects were a problem, though. No see ‘ums or midges-tiny, painful biters. They attacked us the evening we arrived while unloading and various times during our stay. We could not enjoy the pool/hot tub area because of them. Insect repellant didn’t work. There is a retention pond in the neighborhood. Maybe they were breeding there. There were a few at the Fort Morgan historical site but none in the Gulf Shores area.

Very conformable close to water

  • 4 of 5

Kim super good to deal with. AC had a leak and she had someone out asap to fix. House is for most part clean. Everything you need during stay is there. Half mile or so to beach. It is about 16 miles from all the stores and restaurants but we liked that. Pool was great. Does not have the best cell phone signal but not so bad that you cannot handle it. Priced way better than anything we found. We would stay again no question asked
