Description

Welcome to Southern Tides at The Rookery! The Rookery is a peaceful, low-density community situated next to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. It's a highly sought-after destination for families, offering an array of excellent amenities, including two pools, a covered gazebo, hot tub, tennis courts, a community grilling area with picnic tables, and easy access to world-class golf courses. This location combines affordability, spaciousness, and a wide range of amenities, making it a fantastic choice for your stay. You'll have the opportunity to enjoy tranquility while remaining close enough to the Gulf Shores attractions and restaurants.

This spacious three-bedroom, two-bath condo is ideal for families and friends. The master bedroom features a Queen-size bed, a private bathroom, and a TV. Both guest bedrooms are equipped with Queen-size beds, with one of them also featuring a futon. Additionally, there are three Queen-sized futons in the living room, providing sleeping space for up to 12 people in total.

Your private screened porch is perfect for relaxation, allowing you to enjoy the gentle breeze while rocking or swinging. The condo also boasts charming old-fashioned pine floors, a feature that many people appreciate about Rookery condos. The beach is just a short walk or car ride away, with the Rookery being located 0.4 miles from the beautiful white sand beaches of the Fort Morgan peninsula.

The Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge offers several easy trails through sawgrass marsh and slash pine forests, providing opportunities to spot 500 different animal and bird species. The Fort Morgan Peninsula lies in the bird and butterfly migration route. During early spring and late fall, the entire peninsula comes to life with birds and butterflies, including Monarchs and Gulf Fritillaries. In addition to the typical gulls and sandpipers, you may encounter ospreys, great blue herons, and various hawk species, such as sharp-shinned and Cooper's hawks. Be sure to bring your camera to capture a piece of paradise to take home with you. Historic Fort Morgan is only 4.5 miles from the cottage, and you can catch the car ferry to Dauphin Island, where you'll find more walking trails and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

For reservations during the Winter Season (January and February) made before October 1st, a minimum stay of 60 days (two months) is required. Reservations that don't meet this criterion are subject to cancellation by management. After October 1st, reservations for the winter months may be made for a minimum of three or seven nights, depending on unit specifications. This property is professionally managed by Poole & Associates.

Additional information: Parking passes are required and may be purchased upon arrival or by contacting the management office directly, with a maximum of two parking passes allowed per reservation, accommodating up to two cars. Linens are provided, but guests are advised to bring their own beach towels.

Guests must be at least 25 years of age or older to rent this property, and photo ID is required at check-in. Smoking is not permitted, and pets are not allowed.

"This property shows better in pictures than in person. House keeping very lacking. We made numerous reports to the house keeper and then Poole management The swamp is pretty but you cannot go out side without the bugs biting- porch area hasn’t been cleaned up in how long?!? Mattresses low quality and stained. Sand in my daughters bed, not enough sheets and towels for our first night. Leftover wash left in the dryer and multiple dirty dishes in different locations. Vey disappointed."

"We love the neighborhood. The house was alittle hard to find as it is tucked in the back but perfect for privacy. It wasn't as clean as I would have liked. There were stains on the bedspreads, hairs still in the bathroom and several cockroach. There also wasn't enough bath towels for a location that sleeps 12. Overall we were happy and would definitely stay at the Rookery again."

"I have tried to summit a review a few times and it won’t allow it to go through. So apparently I can’t give too many details. If you have smaller children, a fear of snakes, or want to swim in a pool with the tiles still there then don’t stay here. If you have an issue and expect something done The. Don’t stay here. Paid for extra parking and had to wedge in between boats. Over all stay we was extremely unsatisfied and will not stay at this location again."

"Location and property was nice. The condo was clean enough not to complain but not as clean as other vbro properties. The worst part of the trip was check in. You could not just go straight to the property. You had to go to the properties office and pick up the keys. Then upon departure you had to bring them back by a certain time."

"The property managers are amazing! Poole & Assoc made everything easy and were great to work with. We had a bit of a problem finding the rental once we got to the property, as it’s tucked away and private, but we enjoyed our time there. We had a small problem with the lock on the door and it was promptly fixed. We had wildlife (alligator, turtles, birds) just off our deck and the kids enjoyed watching that. The pool is close and so is the beach, and we really enjoyed both!"

"This unit is in a great location. The local public beach was easy to get to, beautiful white sand, clear water the first day. Some rain came through so it wasn't as clear after that. Our coffee maker was missing the basket and they replaced it the same day. Be sure to bring coffee filters with the flat bottoms, not cone shaped. There were plenty of sand toys, 2 beach umbrellas, a couple chairs and nets available. We did see an alligator and a couple turtles in the pond behind the unit. We found some of the dishes to be dirty, food smudges on a couple of the doors and walls. Pleasantly surprised there was a large pot if you want to make your own seafood boil."

"Amazing place to stay. Close to the beach and pool. Had a blast. Loved the fact that it was quite and peaceful. Only reason I'm giving 4 instead of 5 stars is the directions to get there after you sign in is not clear on where it is located. I would recommend letting guest know they can't see it when you are riding through looking at house numbers. It's a short walk down a boardwalk behind another unit. Other than that it's AMAZING. HIGHLY RECOMMEND"

"Covers basics. Ample sleeping space. Close to pool. Couple min drive around corner from a not so crowded beach…avail side street parking for free or public parking close. Cool food truck area w games 5 mins away 6-10pm. Updated mini mart close as well. Only downside is 30 minutes from any main area w Walmart etc."

"This was a great place to stay. A little far out of town for many, but we liked that. Nice pool area, great living arrangements and a boardwalk where you could observe herons and alligators. The numbering on the property was difficult to find at first, but eventually found our place. Would stay again that's for sure."
