Lovely home with clean & comfortable accommodations where our family could be together.”

Clean & comfortable
Directions given. Was not given the actual house number, had to guess that building 14 had the unit we were to occupy. Then had to use the door code on both units to determine which we were to stay in. Tried to call & kept on hold or call was list.

Beautiful property, well maintained and clean. Very comfortable. Was perfect for our family vacation!
Says it’s ocean front and it isn’t. Thanks goodness it doesn’t take too long to get to the beach and the area is more private. I just don’t like it when advertisements are misleading. Photos make the porch look as though you can look right out to the ocean and you cannot see the ocean anywhere around the property. Ocean front means it’s on the beach and The Rookery homes are NOT. Even so, the property was great and we still enjoyed ourselves!

I enjoyed getting away. I would have preferred having a private pool and beach nearby.”

I didn't like the location. I "thought" the home would be a few blocks only from the beach and walkable. You had to drive to a public access. I "thought" the home came with a private pool so that wasn't clearly stated in the add.
It was a very nice home with nice furniture and comfortable beds, clean and furnished well. Nothing scary or dirty.

We all (3 adults and 2 children under 7) had a great time at beaches, pool and in town.”

The decor throughout the home was lovely - very inviting and comfortable. Kitchen had everything we could have wanted in the way of dishes and cookware. Easy walking distance to the pool. Very clean and quiet.
The sliding door between the bedroom and main bathroom could not be opened. A small round mirror next to the sink in the main bathroom was becoming detached from the wall. Signage on the main road was difficult to see.

Very Good”

The Rookery community was very friendly and quiet. Even though the cottage is a two family structure it was very quiet! We had everything we needed in our cottage. The fridge was nice and big and it was nice to have an ice maker. The kitchen table is bar height and huge! We had fun playing cards. We were able to wash and dry our beach towels each night so they were fresh for the next day. The living room was quite comfortable and we enjoyed our movie nights. The pools were very nice - we had the smaller pool to ourselves for an hour or more! There were people who actually walked to the beach from the Rookery. We initially were not able to get through the gate to access the pool so I called the 800 number provided by Vacasa and they told us there were keys on a hook in the house- and we found them right away!!

The pool was close the the house and the walk to the beach was not that bad, it is however along a main highway.
It is at least 20-30 minutes away from everything including restraunts, shopping, and any kind of grocery store.

Family Trip”

Plenty of room for everyone Quiet area, but close enough to activities and the beach
The main complaint we have is that the day we arrived the HOA had contracted to have the porches and doors replaced on both units and there was construction trash all over the property until 3 hours after check in. The next morning at 6:30 they began working on the unit next door, even though quiet time was until 8 am. They should not be doing maintenance work during the time units are rented, do it in the off season. There were three old posts with nails in the ends left on the porch the entire time we were there.

Wonderful”

Spacious and comfortable for family of 4 plus 1 extra. Many amenities and necessities provided (ex. Dish soap, laundry soap, linens, towels, beach towels, beach umbrella, grill, reading books, and more). Very close to beach access, 3 minute drive.
Didn’t realize how far away it was from main town and other attractions (other than beach). 15-20 minutes to nearest grocery/general store. And not many restaurants in the area, or they’re not advertised well, so need to drive for more restaurant options.

Great place to stay!!”

Loved the facility. It was clean and spacious. Just fine for the occasion.
The door to the master bedroom and bathroom wouldn’t not shut all the way. It wouldn’t close all the way so when others came to use the bathroom it was a little peepway. Also the sink in the bathroom was stopped up. We had to keep reaching into the sink to get water to go down.
