Enjoyable and relaxing stay!
Very quaint and cozy cottage. Our family of 6 was very comfortable in this place. Decorated very tastefully and it provided all the comforts of home. I would highly recommend that others stay here.
Wonderful stay, all of the comforts of home.
We had everything we needed, and then some. The kitchen was well equipped, extra pillows, Netflix and satellite TV. It was like a home away from home. The beach is just a hop away. The pool was excellent. I highly recommend the Rookery!
Very nice place to stay
Very nice clean and quiet place no complaints at all carrol was very easy to work with and a very nice lady
Nice stay away from the beach
The duplex was overall nice and very clean. It was pleasantly decorated and nicely setup as a three bedroom. Kitchen was well stocked, better than we have typically experienced. The main coat, a sleeper, could have been more comfortable. It is a bit of a drive to a more populated area with shops etc, but a rather pretty drive. Once there, a reasonable number of restaurants and shops can be found. In the other direction is a nice national park.
The only significant issue was the internet speed which was very very slow during our stay, pages took some time to load. We contacted management whom was unable to correct this during our stay. This would be the only thing that would prevent me from returning as fast online access is important to us.
Great place to close to the beach everything we needed was in the cottage
Awesome place. Owners are super nice. Was a great home for a week. My family of five loved it. Loved having a pool close by if we didn’t want to go to the beach. Thank you Carol!
