Cathy T. It’s a very nice house. Loved the screened in porch, although the remote
for the cafe lights needs to be synced, it also operates
the cafe lights on the house next door. The kids enjoyed the swimming pools,
the beach across the way is nice also, although it’s a bit of a walk and parking
is limited at the public beach access.

Keith T. Lackluster, to say the least. Amenities in Rookery III were pretty much non-existent and it was at least a mile to the beach, which was not very clean and parking was atrocious. The drive from the condo to GulfShores was very long. You cannot have rental carts at Rookery III and that makes the walk to the beach a pretty long journey with multiple people and things in tow. The place was clean and roomy, but pool was small and unaccommodating. DO NOT take the ferry from Fort Morgan to Dauphin Island. It is a minimum 2-3 hour wait to get back across, and that is when you get right back in line to go back. The Fort itself is kinda cool, but not a main attraction that would bring me back.

Rod M. What a great weekend we had! The weather was diverse (rainy, windy, cold but sunny.) The beach was beautiful. We saw one of the best sunsets I have ever seen! My wife thinks we were the first ever renters because the house was in such great condition!

Connie F. We love the Fort Morgan area. Beaches are always clean! This area reminds me of the vacations of my childhood.
