Fort Morgan 2019 Rookery III
According to the writeup, beach was 10 minute leisure walk, more like 20-25 minute brisk walk. You cannot have a cart in Rookery III. Only 1 pool was open and it was a bit small. No amenities in the community other than pool. Unit was OK. Kitchen was well stocked for dishes and utensils Beds were good and place was roomy. Tenants left cards n games for kids. Parking for units was behind the units, so a bit of a distance with handful of things heading to beach. Public beach access parking was always packed. If you have a cart, you cannot ride it on the main road. Fort Morgan itself was interesting, but it would not be a primary draw for the area if you were not already staying there. I would never do the ferry crossing again. It is a 1 hour wait from the Fort Morgan side and over 2 hour wait on the return from Dauphin Island. According to the writeup, Gulf Shores is only 10 minutes away, but that is incorrect, it is 20 minutes at a minimum. The restaurants on Fort Morgan were pricy and overrated for their offerings. The beach was dirty and trash all under the sand, not to mention allowing people to fish where people swim. All-In-All, a return trip to this area and Rookery will not be happening. If it were not for spending precious time with family, this trip would have been a bust.
TurnKey Rental Rookery III Fort Morgan Alabama
The property manager was adequately helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
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.

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.

Interruptions and interruptions
While staying here they decided to sell and get an inspection. We had to agree to one day or another during our stay. They agreed to take us out to lunch for the inconvenience. Someone left a $25 gift card for our entire family to go to lunch at a local spot . Our family couldn’t eat for that getting fast food. Then my kids called another day to tell me a termite inspector was there. No notification! No idea of this persons background! Nothing !!! I had to stop and go back to the house . When I texted the number provided they said the same old thing , sent a message to the local team waiting for a reply.... Probably the last time to use Turn Key

Beautiful spacious vacation home
We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage. The layout is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped for cooking which we appreciated a lot.
The kids loved the bunk beds and even dared to swim in the pool even though it's not heated and we stayed during a rather cool week.
We would definitely consider staying here again, when it's a bit warmer.
