The Coastal Retreat Beach Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 comfortably)

The Coastal Retreat Beach Cottage is located at the Rookery, has recently been professionally decorated and furnished with care and detail. Snowbirds welcome. GPS address is 5601 Hwy 180, Unit 2701, Gulf Shores, AL.

The Master bedroom has a King bed, the second bedroom features a Queen size bed, and the third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds.

The Rookery development is located at mile marker 6, which is 14 miles down Fort Morgan Road from Gulf Shores. The Rookery was designed to be a natural and quiet resort and is located adjacent to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. This is a wonderful place for families to swim, play and explore.

The complex has two pools: a large, zero entry pool with a tiki bar and a smaller one on the left as you enter the complex. The pool facility also has restrooms as well as an outdoor jacuzzi. The pools are heated beginning March 1. Around the pool, you will also find public charcoal grills as well as a tennis court.

Public beach access is across Fort Morgan Road. Turn right leaving the Rookery, go 1/2 block and turn left on Cortez. The beach is straight ahead. Total distance is approx equivalent of three city blocks.

A marina, boat dock, and restaurants are located nearby. There are nature trails for walking and hiking, as well as a bike path.

There are two top rated golf courses within a few miles: Kiva Dunes and The Peninsula, and several more within driving range.

About Pat

Our Family is from Texas.

Pat purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Pat chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We bought The Coastal Retreat Beach Cottage because we love the Gulf Shores area and like to get away from the hustle and bustle but also be close to the action if we choose. We also love having the pool when we get tired of playing at the beach. We have the best of all worlds.

Wonderful Stay!`

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage was absolutely perfect for our family vacation! Everything was clean, cozy, and comfortable for 2 families! Short walk to the pool and short drive to the beach. I would definitely recommend this cottage! If we ever return to the Gulf Shores area we will definitely stay here! Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Perfect space for our 4 adults and 4 kids. Plenty of seating and the bunk beds for the kids in the extra room was great. The only thing we didn't care for was the bed was a little more firm than we like. We drove to the beach and it was only like 2 minutes. We did see the alligator from the pond so that was neat to see also. The decor in the house is so cute and you walk in and it smells clean unlike the condos we have stayed in before. We will definitely be back.

Great retreat away from it all! Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Located in a small community of cottages that are double units. About a 10 minutes walk to the beach and it's nice and private. Away from it all...about 20-30 minute drive to shopping, groceries and Gulf Shores. The owner is very attentive and responds to text right away. No issues at all. Clean, Nicely supplied cottage. Decorated very cute with a beach retreat feel.
