Overview

About the property

Coastal Cottage, 3 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 8, Pool Access, Near Gulf, Gulf Shores, Wifi

Welcome to our charming coastal cottage "Victoria's Place". This charming beach cottage is offered at a great price for families.

Sit on the pool view deck or screen porch at the back of the cottage and watch the kids enjoy the pool! It's like having a pool in your own backyard. We are the closest cottage to the Zero-Entry Pool! Little ones and their parents love the zero-entry pool. Plus, there's a 2nd pool near the entrance to Rookery II. You can walk to both pools!

We invite you to experience Ft Morgan, AL, which is the quieter side of Gulf Shores, Alabama. As you drive along Ft Morgan Rd, feel your cares slip away. You'll love the beaches which are less crowded. Our guests love the individual cottages with convenient parking for 2 cars just outside the cottage front door.

Victoria's Place features 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and a great open concept living area which includes kitchen, dining area and living room.

The cottage is located in the tranquil coastal cottage community called Rookery III. Rookery is part of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge in historic Fort Morgan, Alabama.

The soft white sugar sand beaches and gorgeous water of the Gulf of Mexico are just 7/10ths of a mile from the cottage. Our guests can either walk or drive to the beach, whichever they prefer.

While Fort Morgan is near the activities and action of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Al, Fort Morgan is also considered to be the quieter "road less traveled" - it's quieter, more private, and the soft, white sugar sand beaches are less crowded than the other beach communities in lower Alabama.

Victoria's Place is an ideal vacation home for those who are ready to unplug from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Immerse yourself in life's simple pleasures again. Enjoy a hike on a wildlife trail, or go bird watching, there's also a morning run, walk and/or shelling on the beach, a swim in the revitalizing waters of the Gulf of Mexico, a paddle board excursion, kayaking, bike riding, swimming laps in one of the 2 pools, sitting back to watch the kids enjoy the Zero-entry pool just behind the cottage, grill on the back deck, make popcorn and enjoy movie or game night at the cottage. There's no shortage of things to do. Water sports rentals, bike rentals and such are available along Ft Morgan Rd, or please feel free to bring your own.

The Cottage sleeps up to 8 guests with 2 King beds and 2 Twin beds and a queen sofa sleeper. There are TVs with cable channels in the living room and both of the king bdrms.

The Rookery III is located along Fort Morgan Rd in the heart of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge! This is paradise for nature lovers! Enjoy bird watching, hiking, biking, shelling, fishing, swimming in the Gulf of Mexico and swimming in the community pool (located just behind the cottage).

Why Sea and Sky Rentals, LLC - Renee & Val Morel, Bret Cambre chose Fort Morgan

We love the peaceful surroundings at The Rookery III. It's quiet and peaceful, a real retreat! And, we like that you can drive to Gulf Shores in approx 20 minutes! We also LOVE the zero entry pool that is just outside the cottage! Keep an eye on the kids from the screened back porch. The back porch overlooks the zero-entry pool which is very convenient!

The beach is nearby too, just 7/10ths of a mile from the cottage - walk or drive! The beaches are less crowded than Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! But, it's the same soft, white sugar-sand beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Charming and Spacious, this raised Coastal Cottage has everything you'll need for a beach get-away! Located in heart of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge there are birds, wildlife and interesting foliage all around! The cottage is a short walk, or a shorter drive, to the Gulf of Mexico and soft, white sugar-sand beaches. The complex has 2 terrific pools! The zero-entry pool is within sight of the cottage. Just walk out the cottage's front door and arrive at the pool in a very short walk (2 minutes)! Want more to do? Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are just a short drive! Go to the zoo, see a movie at the cinema, shop at the Foley Outlet mall or the beach T-shirt and souvenir shops! Visit the Hangout or The Wharf! There's so much to do!

Very nice cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cottage! the pool was great, The kids loved it! The beach was beautiful and not too far away. We would definitely love to stay here again. The only problems that we had was when we arrived the code on the door had not been changed yet, we called and got it fixed pretty easily... And the house had not been cleaned. The cleaning service it looks like just, made the beds and did not clean anything the floors and the counters the toilets everything was visibly soiled. We spent the first little while cleaning up before we could unpack and start our vacation. The house was decorated very beachy and cute I would just hire a different cleaning service.

This is a great cottage and beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

The house is a perfect size. Location next to the pool is great. Owner was very kind. Called us personally regarding a tropical storm. The only complaint we have is the beds. It's great to have two rooms with king sized beds, but both were old and uncomfortable.

Perfect place for families!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took my mother and our grandchildren to the Rookery III for a week. It was perfect for us. The house was just the right size and located close enough to Gulf Shores to be in the action, yet far enough away to not hear it! The pool was located immediately behind our little house and our grandchildren lived in it! I would say the only thing missing from our week was a gate to the pool on our end! Thank you for a fantastic time!

Very nice and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at the Rookery III. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you need in it. It is a very short drive to the beach and easy access once you get there. This was our first trip to Fort Morgan area and we enjoyed the fact it is not crowded in that area. The pool at the Rookery III is very nice and right outside our door. We would definitely stay there again and a great price!!!

The Rookery III is an excellent community for bird watching and nature appreciation and people who don't mind a quick drive to get to the Gulf of Mexico. The gulf is just 7/10ths of a mile from the cottage.
