  • Awesome house for the money

    "This is our 2nd year staying here. Absolutely loved it and the location! Love the new exterior paint color. Close to beach; although we did bring wagons this year, which helped tremendously with having to bring 5 chairs, boogie boards, skim boards, not to mention the pop-up tent for shade. We rented bikes and shopping was close enough for our teen boys to ride to. The boys especially enjoyed the mid-deck, hanging their hammocks and even sleeping outside a few nights. The pool was enjoyed each day, especially after returning from the beach. I don't think this home lacked anything. Appreciated beds being made when we arrived, especially after the 12-hour drive. I thought the "starter supply" basket, as well as TP and soap in all bathrooms, were nice touches. Would definitely return."

  • Great house and a very nice owner

    "This house is beautiful! Everything is in pristine condition, clean, and comfortable. We came down for a friend's wedding over the same weekend as hurricane Matthew. The owner (Karen) of the house could not have been more accommodating, she was there to help us navigate the additional complications that the terrible weather created. Thanks so much Karen!"

  • 2016 COROLLA VACATION

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved our stay and we recommend April's Cottage. It is a pleasurable 3 block walk to the beach on the beautiful new boardwalk beach access located directly across from the house. The beach and the dunes are beautiful particularly at sunrise and sunset and a photographers delight. Unfortunately, due to the luck of the draw, the ocean conditions were strange as we hit 2 days of unusually cold water followed by 2 days of warm water, then cold again and warm yet again. The "refreshing" water with the air temperatures in the 90's was not a huge deterrent from enjoying the ocean. The warm water however was a fishing bonanza as each wave brought in huge schools of blues, tracked by diving sea eagles, gulls, and dolphins. In conclusion we had an excellent time, found the house clean, the amenities more than adequate, and the management helpful and friendly. The map directions could have been better as Herring Street comes right through to Ocean Drive. One improvement that I would recommend is to better drain the pooled water from the outdoor shower and hose score the cement with a concrete blade perhaps) and laying some cement slabs below the fishing table rather than the sand that is there now. Have a great stay at April Cottage ..... WE DID!!!!"

  • Third stay

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our third year in a row at the Rookery. The layout of the house is perfect for us. With the kitchen/dining area/master bedroom all on the same floor everything is very convenient. Although a number of businesses are closed at this time of the year several grocery stores are nearby plus quite a few restaurants are also open within a short drive. The property itself has always been neat and clean upon our arrival. Any issues such as cable/phone outages or just general questions have always been addressed quickly by the rental staff. We have already booked our reservation for a fourth year."
