“Heaven is really located at the Rookery Cottage....”

My family have had a rough year and we've never been on a family vacation. So, for the first time in 15 years we changed that.

The Rookery Cottage and the Gulf Shores was like finding out Heaven really exists and we definitely found it.

What was even more special about the location of our cottage was that ours was located near the back and this made it even more private. Plus, not all cottages have an outdoor shower like ours did to help get you, your little ones, or any beach items cleaned. As for the inside - it was just perfect. Not only was everything more than clean, it was nice to look at and super comfortable.

We loved it so much that we are planning on making this a mandatory yearly trip. And it takes us about a 12 hour drive to get here.

What's also perfect is the location to the beach. You can walk or drive. And the beach is gorgeous and way more private with less people than Orange Beach. Don't make the mistake of staying in Orange where you have way too many people and over crowding, when you have the same beautiful beach right here.

The pool and hot tub were also great. We met lots of nice people while here.

As for the nature refuge that the Rookery cottage is nestled into - so many cool animals and wildlife to see at all times during the day.

Here's a quick tip if you stay in the Rookery: the house comes with every thing you need and some. Just stop by the store and pick up some paper towels, trash bags, and toilet paper to get you by for the week. We used the washer and dryer every day.

Bottom line: if we could move here - we would.

“Beautiful cottage lacks essentials”

We enjoyed our stay and the cottage is beautiful with close beach access. The cottage is not stocked with essentials such as, toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, and laundry detergent. I felt that these basic things should be supplied especially when expected to do laundry, empty trash etc.. The property is about 20 minutes from gulf shores. There are great local restaurants. Overall we enjoyed our vacation.

“Great place for families!”

My husband and our 3 children stayed at this perfect little beach cottage for a week. It was gorgeous and very affordable. Our kids especially loved the pool. I personally enjoyed walking to the beach on early mornings with my youngest baby. Just be aware that while you can walk to the beach, its a better idea to drive if you have a lot of beach gear and little ones. My only complaint would be that the unit has no beach chairs. This was disappointing as I doubt people want to take beach chairs on the plane.My husband enjoyed the internet and cable as we dont have cable at home. He also liked sitting on the porch. All in all it was a great and relaxing get away

The only issue we found were the comfort of the beds. But we loved the cottage and the location. The pool and hot tub was very nice and clean. We have always stayed in the condos on the beach but after staying at the cottage I think we will be there from now on.
