"Beach getaway The house was just as described. We had plenty of room for our group of seven. The walk to the beach wasn't to bad (about 5-10mins) we realized there was a shorter access point to the right our last day there. Management was very polite and easy to get in touch with. The beaches weren't crowded at all. We would stay here again."

"Great family rental. The appliances and stocked pots/pans and kitchen utensils were great. The house is slightly dated but very well decorated. The A/C unit would work at times but shut off before reaching target temperature. However, the wonderful Fall weather helped us to not rely on the A/C too much. The walk to the beach took us around 5 minutes (that’s with young kids). We had a great time!"

"Pelican's Rest was beyond amazing to our little blended “family”. My boyfriend I each have kids and decided we would all vacation together. The layout of the beachouse was so perfect for us, allowed plenty of room for everyone to hang out and not feel cramped OR excluded from anything. It rained the ENTIRE time we were there but it was honestly a bigger blessing because of the laughs, bonding, etc without any distractions. We talked about making that house our get away spot again! I mean... in my own house my kids don't hang out with me as much as we did there it was so great! I also want to add how easy it was booking online and how nice everyone was at Poole and Associates for everyone of my phone calls when I was clarifying how it works because it was my very first Vrbo booking as well. When you have 3 teens (16,17,17) and a 7 year old impressed by a vacation with ZERO whining or complaining it deserves the best review ever!"

"Our family of 7 spent 5 nights in this house. We found it very clean and well supplied with every thing we needed. The beds are comfortable and the location is good. Not on the beach but just a 3min walk to a lovely quiet beach. This location is perfect for some one wanting to stay a bit away from more commercial end of the peninsula. There is a dollar general about 10min away for whatever we needed for groceries. All in all we loved it and want to return!"

"We loved our stay at Pelican's Rest. The house is well stocked and beautifully furnished. It has every kitchen need you could ask for. The fridge is huge, and it kept all of our items nice and cold. The house was very clean. We loved the back porch where there was a limited ocean view, but you could still hear the waves and feel the beach wind. The patio furniture was so nice and comfortable. We stayed in the master bedroom, and the bed and pillows were comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. I wish it had one bedroom (it has three bedrooms), so more family could come down. Also, the charcoal grill looked like it was on its last leg, so keep that in mind if you have a lot of grilling to do. The beach access was good. I am seven months pregnant and not feeling 100% so the walk was a little much for me, but it is seriously 5-9 minutes depending upon how fast you are going and how much stuff is weighing you down. There isn't a place to park where the beach access is so driving and parking isn't an option unless you want to go to the beach further away. The beach access wasn't a big deal because the house was so nice. Most of the beach access walk was on Ponce de Leon, which is a very low-traffic road where people expect to see their neighbors walking, running, etc. Would highly recommend to friends and family and plan to stay here again. I love Ft. Morgan, and this is a beautiful property! Very close to Sassy Bass for groceries or meals and Tacky Jack's/the marina."

"The house was super cute and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and everyone slept just fine. Living room had plenty of seating for everyone in our group as well. My favorite was the deck, so peaceful and super cute! The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed and then some. The garbage disposal did not work, but not a huge deal. Only complaints/concerns: My parents are older, so walking to the beach from this house was harder on them than if we were closer. Myself and spouse had no issues. It could be a little cleaner. The kitchen cabinets had red pasta sauce stains on them, which was kind of gross, but it happens. Same with the living room furniture- lots of stains. Underneath the house is concrete with seating-which was nice. there is a step up on the concrete on both sides that is not marked. I was carrying my one year old and did not see this and tripped and fell. I scraped my legs pretty badly and scared my little one. That would be the only thing I would recommend. Other than that, I would stay here again!"

"Pro- We loved how close this was to the beach. Walking in the sand was hot and had stickers but was short so it was worth it. We loved the private beach! The house was so cute and comfy. Beds were super comfortable plenty of space. The stars were amazing to watch from back deck. Loved how close Tacky Jacks and Sassy Bass were to eat. Cons - Multiple stains all over the carpet in bedrooms, a few almost holes in the wall behind bed in one bedroom, the back deck patio table was completely rusted through so you couldn't sit at it or even push the chairs all the way under or more rust would break off. We didn't want the glass to shatter if the main support was tapped and finally gave way so we did not get to use this table. There was big pink stains on the adorable white couches. Check out was too early."

"The beach house was beautiful. Spent 5 nights there with our adult age college kids who met us from all over the country. Nice relaxing time. Not on the beach but a short walk on a path through the sand dunes to the water (A bit confusing as to where to enter the beach. Did not have a public area to cross so walked between beach houses for access.) Beautiful interior decorating with dishwasher, laundry, and comfortable beds. The kitchen needed a larger sautee/frying pan for cooking but other than that it was well supplied. Also the beach house has nice outdoor decks and furniture."

"This was our second time staying at Pelican's Rest. Again, it did not disappoint. We've tried looking for other places right on the beach but none of them are on par with this slice of heaven. I'd gladly have to walk the short path to the beach, than to ever stay in a place with one of those cheesy metal bunk beds or furniture from the 90's. Pelican's Rest is appointed beautifully and every piece was clearly purchased for this home. No second hand here. Comfortable beds and great laundry room to boot. Each time was stay, we are impressed with the cleanliness and the fact that it feels like home. We'll be back at Christmas!"

The house was clean and well stocked. The locality was great, close to restaurants, grocery items, and the ferry. We enjoyed a day in Mobile watching the Mobile Baybears and filling up on The Brick Pit BBQ (MAN vs. FOOD). I would recommend this house to anyone.

"Beautifully decorated home, relaxing atmosphere, lots of extras provided, awesome family memories made. We loved our stay and definitely plan to return. The walk to the beach was much shorter than we originally thought and the only room for improvement, would be the beach path. A bit of a rough terrain for younger kids to navigate but all in all, it was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more. Loved the quiet beach and the daily dolphin sightings."

"We were very pleased in Pelicans Rest. The house was extremely clean and the kitchen was well stocked with appliances and accessories. The living room was relatively large and the open space from the kitchen to living room was nice. We had a total of 6 people including two 5 year olds and the house was plenty big enough for the 6 of us. The living room was large enough for the kids to have some room to play and the kids also enjoyed staying on the back deck. It was open enough that we were ok letting them play on the deck while we were in the kitchen or living room. Fort Morgan is a great area if you're wanting a more secluded beach. There is a short walk to the beach, which isn't far but is all in sand which makes it feel like a longer walk. The biggest disadvantage to the beach is the large number of oil rigs blocking the view, but that isn't a deal breaker. We were able to see many dolphins, and even a couple of stingrays. Also, from the right place on the back deck, you can view both the ocean and the bay. Would definitely recommend this property to someone wanting a quiet weekend at the beach."
