This is the third year in a row that we have stayed at the Rookery cottage. The cottage is great for two couples since each bedroom has it’s own private bath. Since it has a third bedroom, you could also include a couple of children if needed. The cottage is always sparkling clean and nice and cool when we arrive. The air conditioning is great and the furnishings are very comfortable. We are already planning next year’s vacation.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for Your repeat business and we hope to see you again soon!

5601 State Highway 180, Unit 3401 The Rookery - So cute and beautifully decorated. Much larger than the pictures look like. This adorable condo was comfortable, roomy, and less than 1 minute from the beautiful white sand beach. Close to fabulous restaurants, sights, and anything you can think of. Private, quiet, and well-kept, we will return to this lovely condo and setting in the future, for sure.

This was a fabulous home away vacation! If you’re looking for a quiet, low-key vacation this is perfect. All the attractions such as Orange beach, gulf shores etc. are a quick and scenic 20 minute drive away! Fort Morgan Beach was less then a 5 minute drive and was our favorite beach! Highly recommend this facility!

We were in town for a few days of golfing with friends. This is the second year our friends and my husband and I booked the Rookery. The cottage is perfect for two couples. We each had our own master suites. The kitchen was well equipped with anything we needed. The cottage was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The only major drawback and change from last year was that the second master bedroom closet is now locked, so we had to hang our clothes in the third bedroom, which was somewhat of an inconvenience. Other than that.. it was again a great stay. We will be booking again next October.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much! We're glad to be a part of your tradition and look forward to seeing you next year!

The home was well equipped including umbrella and beach chairs. Hard to get in touch with management no phone # and bad reception for notebook. Need to be more specific about back...which was great for privacy but couldn’t find straight off. Deep clean suggested. Left my undies in master and would love to have someone send them home.....please ! Lovely stay....

Manager's Response

We're in deep clean season now! We'll be sure to leave a contact number in a more obvious place.

We were pleasantly surprised by the tasteful dcor of this cottage. Very spacious with a feel of seclusion as most window views were of beautiful foliage. Beds were comfortable. The kids begged to go to the pool the moment they woke up. The beach was also very nice, not crowded and an easy walk for all ages(6-65). The Sassy Bass, less than a five minute drive, was our favorite restaurant. Highly recommend taking the Mobile Bay ferry to Daulphin Island for the day. Aquarium was fun and educational.

Manager's Response

Sounds like a wonderful family vacation! We're so glad you enjoyed our home, the pool and the beach. We agree about Sassy Bass and the ferry. Both are well worth a try! Please come back again soon!

Everything was perfect with the Cottage. The only issue we had was the NO SEE UM BUGS, and the YELLOW FLIES. Apparently they are not there after June. So next time we know not to go in May.

Whenever I had to call the Property Manager they were very nice and helpful. I would recommend Relax on the Beach to my family and friends.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for your kind words about our home and RelaxontheBeach. We look forward to seeing you again, but not in May, haha!

We had a few twists and turns getting here, the address for the property is 3201. It is located behind 3202 and if you don't know this it can be tricky to find. FYI, we also fumbled a bit with the pool gate, property management came out to give us a hand. After some trial and error we figured out the code we were given is for the lock box located at the cottage, the key for the gate is inside the lock box.

Manager's Response

Thanks for sharing and we're glad that, other than the few glitches, you enjoyed our home.

Our trip was wonderful! Cute cottage, good location, very clean. The only negative, it is very difficult to locate in the dark. I would highly recommend the owners to put the house number on a post with an arrow pointing to the back of 3202. So for those vacationers who stay at this location, do not follow your GPS, it is incorrect. Do not go into Rookery 111 where your GPS takes you. Drive past Rookery 111 and you into "The Rookery." Cross the wooden bridge, turn right at the first stop sign. You will see 3202, you are there. Park and walk to the very back of 3202. On the back side of 3202, on the back wall, hid by shrubs, you will see #3201. Once you find it, all will be great!

Manager's Response

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The driving directions have been corrected and we truly apologize for the inconvenience. We will check with the HOA to see what can be done regarding signage. We appreciate your feedback.

Great 1200 sq ft cottage. Perfect size for a family of 4 or two couples. The cottage was very cute with hardwood flooring and comfortable contemporary furniture. Since we were there in September we were pleased with how well the air conditioning worked. The place was spotless when we arrived. Our only hiccup was trying to locate the condo after dark the first night. Website map was incorrect. It was actually in Rookery II not III.

Manager's Response

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We are working with our website to improve our directions. Thank you for the heads up.

It's nice that the property sits on the back of the shared unit. Private feel but still close to pool and beach. We sat on the back porch every night with tiki torch candle ( the no see ums, biting gnats really) are pretty bad at times but not enough to keep us from coming back. House was clean upon arrival and our experience was great. Check out the sassy bass for all your grocery needs and Tacky Jacks for a low key breakfast or dinner while overlooking the bay. We saw dolphins while eating.

Manager's Response

We so glad you enjoyed the Rookery and got to see the dolphins. Noseeums are a fact of life in the south, mostly around dusk in the warmer months, but we're happy they won't deter you from coming back and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

The rookery was wonderful! A very nice and quiet setting. This did not feel like a rental, more like a home. Very well kept and nicely decorated. The proximity to the pool can't be beat. We were a little concerned about being across the road from the beach but it was not a problem. A quick jump in the car and two minutes later we were parked right beside the beach access. Would definitely recommend and return to the Rookery!
