Amazing rental that is very clean and has everything you need for a comfortable vacation!!
We absolutely loved our stay! The rental unit is very clean and the kitchen is stocked with all the essentials for cooking and the bathrooms have plenty of towels. The mattresses for all the beds were really comfortable too. (We have stayed at other vacation rentals where the beds have been terribly uncomfortable). It is a short drive to the beach and the pool was steps from our rental unit. The pool was never crowded and we were there over a holiday week. There is a small grocery store near by for the essentials if your forgot something. I do recommend stopping to get all your groceries at once because it is a bit of a drive to the Wal-Mart. Also if you can, bring your own alcohol because the prices in the area are extremely elevated. Not a complaint just a friendly tip. The absolute best part about this rental property is the property manager!! Her name is Kim and she goes out of her way to make sure your stay is amazing. She communicates with you and anytime you have a question she responds quickly. She gave excellent suggestions about where to eat and what to do. We have stayed at other vacation rentals and enjoyed ourselves, but this one was by far our favorite.
We love this house at The Rookery! We have stayed here multiple years and will certainly come back. It’s clean, perfect size, and a great location to pool and beach.
Well appointed rental
The house is great: beds are comfortable, baths adequate, kitchen well appointed. Having washer/dryer is essential for a beach trip! The insects were a problem, though. No see ‘ums or midges-tiny, painful biters. They attacked us the evening we arrived while unloading and various times during our stay. We could not enjoy the pool/hot tub area because of them. Insect repellant didn’t work. There is a retention pond in the neighborhood. Maybe they were breeding there. There were a few at the Fort Morgan historical site but none in the Gulf Shores area.
Great quiet location
Like quiet nature of property, beach is short walk and kids love the pool
Very conformable close to water
Kim super good to deal with. AC had a leak and she had someone out asap to fix. House is for most part clean. Everything you need during stay is there. Half mile or so to beach. It is about 16 miles from all the stores and restaurants but we liked that. Pool was great. Does not have the best cell phone signal but not so bad that you cannot handle it. Priced way better than anything we found. We would stay again no question asked
Wonderful place to stay!
Would definitely recommend to all!! Kim was awesome to work with!!
