TurnKey Vacation Rentals
Stayed a long weekend at this property. The location on the river was great and the house was very comfortable for our group. Very quiet and private location with great access to the river but still close to Boothbay.
Beautiful and relaxing!
We stayed at this property for Memorial Day weekend. The house is spacious and very comfortable. It is a beautiful property right on Back River. Overall we had a wonderful time and a very relaxing weekend. The house is conveniently located, being just a quick drive away from the town center, but removed enough that you are able to enjoy privacy in a serene location. The only negative is the WiFi is very slow so do not plan on being able to do much more than check emails. Otherwise, the amenities at the house were perfect and we would definitely consider renting this house again in the future!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the home, and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! We agree that the convenient location and remodeling that were done are some of what makes this home so special. You and your family were perfect guests, we enjoyed having you and look forward to hosting you again in the future! -The TurnKey VR Team
Exceeded Expectations Except for the Owner.
This home and the grounds exceeded our expectations. Clean, roomy, and updated facilities make it easy for all. Take a rambling road through Maine woods to great shopping and restaurants. Or just relax on the large deck and watch the wonderful sunsets and the tidal river changes. I would totally recommend this property. My only complaint is that my wife has a terminal illness and the owner REFUSED after two requests to supply a TV code for the baseball my wife and I wanted to watch. They claimed there was a charge (there isn’t though had there been I’d have GLADLY paid double) and we were unable to watch. It’s too bad because had we been able to watch I would say this vacation was perfect.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We appreciate your feedback and are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. You were perfect guests, and we look forward to next time! -The TurnKey VR Team
Great weekend getaway in beautiful Boothbay Maine!
We chose this property based on its proximity to the Boothbay Botanical Gardens Light Festival and the House did not disappoint. The key code worked perfectly on first attempt and was easy to set up our own 4 digit passcode. The house was very clean with ample space for our family of 6. Kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and amenities of home. Highly recommend to a large family looking for a great place to stay in the area. We would stay again in the future if we take another trip to Boothbay
Wonderful house, terrible agency
While the house and location was beautiful, it took over an hour to get into the house because the digital lock did not work and phone service in the area is poor to non-existent. Luckily we arrived with the kids during the day and not at night. After many repeated phone calls to an automated call center, we eventually reached the local office that taught us how to get the physical key out the lock box. While this was annoying for us, the issue is that this appears to be an ongoing problem based on prior reviews, and had been a problem for the last two renters as well. Since this has been going on for over a month, the agency doesn't seem too interested in fixing the problem. Until this is fixed, I can't recommend Turnkey as an agency. (Which is a shame since we loved the property)
As for the house, it is stunning... The dock off the front porch was perfect and the kids loved fishing off of it and launching the kayak (which we rented and had delivered) anytime they wanted. The house was clean and tastefully decorated with lots of room. A physical phone (old fashioned, I know) for local and toll free calls would have made the lack of cell service (AT&T for us) in the area less annoying and provided a way to reach the manager if needed. The house is close to the heart of Boothbay but was far out enough to be peaceful and quiet. (Yes, there are mosquitoes and bees, but hey, this is Maine.) There is no AC, but there are fans, and you rarely need it. The wi-fi was passable for light e-mails. The views are amazing and we enjoyed watching sunrises and sunsets over the water off the deck and from our bedroom window. If Turnkey can work out the lock and communication issues, we would be delighted to keep returning here over and over.
Thank you so much for your review, and we’re happy to hear you had a great stay at our place. That being said, we’re so sorry for the lock issues that happened during your stay with us. Please be assured that we are looking into this further and will make sure any issues are resolved. Thanks again for bringing these important issues to light, as it’s feedback like this that really makes a difference in how we move forward in offering the best service we possibly can to our guests and in keeping our properties in perfect shape. If there is anything else we can do for you, please reach out any time on our 24/7 guest hotline and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team
Off to a shaky start
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.
The code for opening the front door did not work, so we tried contacting Turnkey Vacation Management, which was difficult because cell phone service at the site is almost nonexistent. It took three calls before we were referred to the local Turnkey staff who finally agreed to give us the code to the adjacent lockbox. So, our early checkin was spent dealing with that issue. We were left with one key for the stay. Once we gained access to the house, our stay was enjoyable .
