About the area

The cottage is located on the western end of Pleasure Island. It is a 16 mile drive back to Highway 59, so the cottage is away from the hustle and the bustle of the extreme summer crowds, but close enough to get there, enjoy the sights and return to peace and serenity! The historical Fort Morgan is only six miles away, while shopping, amusement parks, movie theaters, bowling, and additional restaurants are about 15-20 minutes away. There are four restaurants withing five miles of the cottage and a convenient store. A small marina is located within four miles, and the fort boasts a fishing pier for great catches and crabbing.

“Vacation 2016”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2016

I was very impressed with the accommodations. Kim was very helpful with information and scheduling the our trip. I enjoyed the location. A short walk to the beach, pool. I will totally take the family back. :)

“Great Place!”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

We stayed in unit 2402. It was very nicely decorated and was clean and well maintained. I was surprised that it had some things I wasn't expecting. (Spices,flour,oil,coffee filters, dish detergent etc). It had plenty of room for four adults and three kids. We swam in the large pool that was close by every day. It was clean and the kids loved it. We also had beach toys and pool toys that were on the enclosed porch for us to use. We drove to the beach every day. It was just too long of a walk with the kids. (All under seven) The only negative I felt was the beach being too far to walk. Also there were alligators very close to the house. (One very close all the time) We watched the kids very close. We would definitely go back though. We had a great time.

Owner's reply: Hi Judy, I wanted to take a second to update the alligator situation. Once reported, Any alligators are safely removed and relocated to a more alligator friendly environment. They are definitely not pets and there are signs reminding guests not to feed them. But the community is careful to call authorities in when one is spotted. Thanks again and hope to see you next time you come down! Kim

The Rookery in general is an excellent setting--uncrowded pool, proximity to nature, easy walk to the Gulf beach. This unit is in a particularly nice setting, a bit more private than others. The A/C presented problems, but our realtor moved us to another unit without undue hassle.

“Amazing Stay!!”

Reviewed 1 May 2014

We couldn't have asked for a better place! I'm not much of a beach person, but our last minute family getaway took us to the Gulf. We had a small child with us as well as my father who is in his late 60s, so it's usually so hard to please us all. We had only been in the cottage for a few hours and I was already planning our return trip! This place had everything we could have needed. It was only a short walk to the beach (and not being right on the beach kept us from tracking sand everywhere!) Each day we were on the beach, there were only 3 or 4 other people there, so we had it all to ourselves! No crowds to deal with, no loud parties. The beach was amazing! Gorgeous views, no huge condos in the skyline, just a cozy, sunny stretch of beach. I can't believe how comfortable the beds were! Just when I thought the trip couldn't get any better, I slept in the bed! So soft!! I can't wait to run away from the city again and come here. I'll recommend this rental to everyone I know! Kim made booking at the very last minute a total breeze!

Owner's reply: Niven, You and your family are a pleasure to work with and are welcome any time! We are so glad you enjoyed our little section of the world. The beach is always open! Thank you for the great review! Kim

“The Rookery”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

This was the easiest rental I've experienced in a long time. The residence was accurately depicted, the owner was charming and accomodating. The cottage was clean, in total repair, close to the beach, close to the bay, fully equipped. All we had to do was unpack.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much Ms. June. You and your family are welcome back ANYTIME! Kim

We had a wonderful time at the Rookery 3602. We love the Rookery and always have a wonderful vacation every time we visit there. Thanks so much for the lovely cottage

Owner's reply: Tammy it was a pleasure speaking with you. Next time, we will meet on the beach! Call me any time! Kim

“" The Great Escape"”

I was very pleased at the layout of the home, and how it was just the right size, for four adults and one child. a very enjoyable week

“Perfect get away!”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

The house was nice and clean with a well stocked kitchen. The owner was very helpful and extremely friendly. Cottage is away from all the craziness of down town gulf shores, making it a perfect family get away. We were able to fish, see dolphins, all sorts of birds, and even a baby alligator. The beach is an easy short walk and is not busy at all. Would totally recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you Katrina! We are certainly glad you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome anytime.

“Great Rookery condo”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2011

The rental unit was very clean and well decorated. The pool at the condo's was very clean and nice. It was nice to be away from the crowds of Gulf Shores but it is a little bit of a drive to get to restaurants and stores. You have to drive to the beach since it not easily walked to. There are a lot of new condos being built along the Gulf beach and parking can be difficult there because there are a lot of no parking signs posted. All in all, my family thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would not hesitate to rent the unit again in the future. We would recommend this unit and condo complex to anyone.

“Great Get-a-way”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2011

My wife and 4 teenagers and I just got back from this cozy cottage. The cottage was perfect for the 6 of us with all the amenities needed for a week in the gulf. While the cottage is a short walk from the beach, it is located near a wildlife refuge, not a bunch of concrete and high rises. 2 pools and hot tub nearby, with grilling and picnic tables made it the total package.
