Amenities Could be Better
Nice house and quiet location but very weak on the amenities.
1 Ply toilet paper and only 1 roll for each bathroom.
Only 1 small roll of paper towels for the week.
You only get one dishwashing tablet for the week.
King size bed creaks on every move. Think it's the headboard.
Queen size bed mattress doesn't fit the frame.
No written instructions on how to operate the TV. We figured it out but some people might not.
No TV in the room with the King size bed.
Only one TV receiver and that's in the family room so what you're watching in the family room is what the people in the Queen size bed bedroom must watch.
No Keurig coffee maker. Just the old fashioned type.
No grill so you have to grill by using the community grills by the big pool.
The check-in at Poole & Associates is antiquated. Would be nice to have a personalized PIN that you can put in and the front door locks and unlocks and have the parking passes already inside the house. The check-in/out is 20 minutes from the property.
Place was very clean.
Had a blue pool mattress and sand castle tools to use.
AC worked very well.
Beach is only 1/4 - 1/2 mile from the house. Would be hard to walk there with all the beach supplies but easy drive.
Tacky Jacks 2 and another grill are close by.
We've stayed at an Air BNB that was owed by a husband and wife and the amenities were awesome. Candy bowls laid out, a wide variety of K-Cups for coffee, pop and water in the refrigerator, instructions for TV, Bluetooth speaker and directions to local hot spots listed in a 3-ring binder. With a corporation, the perception is that you go as cheap as possible.
Hope this helps as it's an honest assessment.
Very nice place for our family vacation! Pool is literally steps from this house and rarely anyone but our family used it. House is comfortable and kitchen has pretty much everything you can need. Our only disappointment was NO WI-FI! We had several kids wanting to watch Netflix and use iPads but couldn't. Also, cell service was very slow there (even with Verizon!) so Wi-Fi is necessary, even for emergency purposes. The beach access is a short drive away. Beds were very comfortable! I'd stay here again if they added Wi-Fi to this rental. The key pick-up and drop off is very dated as well. Time for electronic keypads. We would have taken the ferry to and from but you have to go through Gulf Shores to pick up and drop off the keys. Nice house and stay but could be fabulous with a couple of tweaks! Great quiet location!!
Thank you for the review. We are happy to hear that you all had a great vacation. This unit is not listed or advertised as having WiFi. Also, it is our policy to have all guests check in and out at our office to pick up keys. Our office is very centrally located, and for the majority of our guests it is directly on the way to the property. The only time it is out of the way, is if you choose to take the ferry across the bay, which most guests do not choose to do.
Great property w/pool
This was a great 2.5 bedroom home and was nicely furnished. It would have been better if the house had WIFI.
Thank you for the review. This unit is not listed or advertised as having WIFI, therefore it will not be available. Thank you for choosing Poole & Associates.
We really enjoyed our stay. Great accommodations.
Easy renting. People at realty office super nice and friendly.
Thank you for the review. We are so happy to hear that you had a great experience with our office employees. We strive to make the renting process less stressful so that you can enjoy your vacation. Thank you for choosing Poole & Associates!
Nice and Relaxing
My girlfriend's and I were here for a girl's trip. It was perfect for us. When arriving at the property it looked just as listed. It was well kept and clean. There was plenty of room for each of us. We enjoyed late nights on the screened in porch. It was very relaxing. The only downside was we weren't able to access the pool located right beside the house, although it was supposed to be accessible. It would've been great if we could've used it. All in all... Great Stay!!
Thank you for the review. We are so happy to hear that you all had such a great time. The screen porch is perfect to sit out and relax!
Great place to stay!!
We really enjoyed ourselves here! The house was the perfect size for my family of 5. We loved that the pool was right outside our door. The beach wasn’t too far. It wasn’t really walking distance in my opinion, but it was worth the drive. The beach in Fort Morgan is perfect! Not too crowded. There are only two things that I wish this place had to offer, WiFi and pet friendly. We missed our dog terribly while on vacation, and would have loved for him to be with us. We enjoy watching Netflix and wasn’t really able to because we didn’t have WiFi. But that is honestly our only complaint. Would highly recommend The Rookery to others and will definitely be back!!
