Not what was in the photos
The pictures are not accurate. That is good and bad. The furniture is brand new and very comfortable.There is no air hockey table. No pull out couch. Did provide an air mattress. Floors were not clean, master bathroom was not cleaned at all. Some TVs worked some didnt . Not as convenient to the water. Have to cross a very busy road, not easy with small children.

It was a nice place.
All of the place was very close to the pool I’m not very close to the beach at all, you have to get in your car and drive across the road and beach access has no place to rinse off all so you get back in your car full of sand. As far as the house, the furniture felt like it was goig to fall apart. I think the furniture just need some updating the size of the house was perfect for our group we love the fact that it had two full bathrooms.

Not horrible not great
The furniture and appliances were falling apart. We were scared to sit at the kitchen table because of the chairs. The rocking chair in the corner was on its last legs and the refrigerator shelves were duct taped together. The floors were very dirty when we got there. The location and the house it's self were great. The pool was nice and beach access wasn't far.

A week in Fort morgan
- great location, with a swimming pool and tennis court right next door, and a ten minute walk from the beach, and quick 15 minutes ride to town.
- plenty of space for two adults and four children.

- the house needs some upgrading, and a very thorough clean up! Some furniture pieces were not functional (a dresser hollow on the inside, for instance). Also, we did not expect the property to be spot-free, given its location by the pool and beach with the heavy traffic that entails, but some areas were simply dirty. We had to clean the shower rugs and shower curtain in the master bedroom to minimize a strong moldy odor, for instance.
- The walk to the beach includes crossing a busy road. The pond next to our house has a large alligator as a host, and does not have a fence around it. So, watch your younger children around that area.

Overall, we had a great time, with the kids enjoying the outdoors and the beautiful surroundings. And that is the reason we would recommend this location and property to other families. Thank you!

Not Pet Friendly
This lovely cottage was listed as pet friendly on both VRBO and Air B&B when I made our reservation in March. I rented through VRBO. A week before our stay, the middle agent, Turnkey rentals, sends me an email stating "**THIS IS A STRICT NO PETS ALLOWED HOA POLICY, PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED HERE DESPITE WHAT ANY OTHER SITE MAY SAY.** Please be aware that if pets are discovered on the property you will be asked to leave without being refunded and may be responsible for any cost to clean up associated with it and also fines tendered to the Home Owner."
It was too late to cancel our trip, so I did not bring our dog. And after 3 phone calls and hours on the phone with the Turnkey representatives, I was finally refunded my $200 pet cleaning fee! I have a bad taste in my mouth for Turnkey, VRBO, and the owners for having it listed as pet friendly, when there were very old laminated signs inside the house that read, "No Pets!" It is half a mile from the beach. And though the cottage is lovely, the furniture is well worn and the cabinets, shelving and chair legs are damaged. We still had a nice time, enjoyed our vacation, but it has been a lot of work to recoup.

Multi-family getaway
House was very clean and plenty of space of 4 adults and 4 kids under 10. Property was well kept and easy to navigate. We really enjoyed the pool's spaciousness for the kids.

Charming bungalow
Great get away for a family or a family reunion! The community of very well maintained and cottage was very clean and charming! I wanted one off the busy beaten path of the usual condo stay but still have all the comforts of such; beach, pool and well maintained rental and I found it here at the Rookery! We were accessible to town in 20 minutes but enjoyed a beach that was not overcrowded! The pool and jacuzzi were wonderful too! Will definitely stay again!

Quick vacation
The cottage was very clean and well keep. Lots of room for a great price. Close enough to town but far enough away for all the traffic and noise.
