Unfortunate vacation

Reviewer Comments:

As soon as we came to the house the 1st thing we noticed was the pool, it was completely brown and disgusting an had frogs living in it. We were told the pool guy couldn't come till the next day. We entered the house to find dust and dirt throughout the home. Very dingy and I spent 2 hrs trying to clean it. The internet did not work and a rep came out and agreed the house was not in a state to have people in it. Later that night I showered and the ceiling in the kitchen started to leak. A plumber can the following day and said dont use that bathroom. The pool guy came and said dont use the pool for 24-48 hrs. 2 days later the plumber showed up with no notice as we were leaving and worked on the bathroom for 3 hrs! And said dont use it for 24 hours. So our 5 day trip away with the kids was 4 days with 1 bathroom, 2 days access to the pool, leaking ceilings, dirty house, wasted day out to be at the house for the plumber and so much frustration for us all. We were compensated $200 for our inconvenience, less than 10% of what we paid and had housecleaning waved. We've used turnkey for years but will no longer be customers after this experience.

Reviewer Comments:

First of all they wouldn't let us check in early by 2 hours even though they say that's an option. To only show up "on time" to find out the fridge is hot which took 12+ hours to cool down. No doors, bedrooms nor bathrooms lock or even shut all the way. The secondary bathroom had very little water pressure. Hot tub didn't work. The floors were disgusting upon arrival. Kitchen ware was very limited and very old and not at all clean. Master bathroom shower drain was full of hair along with the washing machine. Both trash cans outside were full of trash. Kitchen sink faucet was loose and leaky. Grass was super tall upon arrival. We asked for a later check out time, within the 24hr notice only to be told that wasn't a possibility and had a check out time of 10:00 am. When we pulled out at 9:57 am, there was someone at the house ready to pull in by 10:00 to make sure we were gone. The neighborhood was desolate because I can only assume from all the construction around, which made a drive to anywhere, which the closest beach was 15 minutes away. There were cigarette butts all around the pool and hot tub. There were also cockroaches on the outside of the property that were the biggest I had ever seen. I never seen inside, but made my skin crawl. I would just assume that paying this much $, we would have had a better experience. Would never recommend this house to anyone. We have 5 kids and everyone of them were disgusted upon arrival of the conditions, that speaks volumes.

Reviewer Comments:

1. The bedrooms were filthy. The dust was so bad, particularly the bedroom with the queen size bed that the headboard had to be wiped down before anyone could sleep in it. There was so much dust you could write in it. Dust on the floor, walls, dressers, everywhere. <br> <br> 2. The dishwasher does not work at all. We had to wash all dishes by hand.<br> <br> 3. The kitchen drawers are filthy. Dirt and food in the drawers.<br> <br> 4. The master bathroom has NO cold water in the bathroom sink. The shut-off valve was turned off and when we tried to turn it on it is leaking. There was no top sheet on the king bed. Found one in the closet. <br> <br> 5. The television in the bedroom with the queen bed never worked.<br> <br> 6. We also had to call Turnkey to get the hot tub working. Someone did come out to service the hot tub and got the jets working but failed to turn on the heater. My husband had to figure out how to turn the gas on to heat the tub. We also tried to turn the tub off only to have it start draining into the pool. The directions were of no use and because of that the hot tub ran constantly. <br> <br> 7. The kitchen faucet has NO water pressure for cold water.<br> <br> I hope these issues are addressed. As a frequent user of Air B&amp;B this house was a real disappointment. Considering the issues we had $1536.36 (for 4 nights) for this property was incredibly over priced. I would definitely NOT recommend this for rental to anyone else until these issues are resolved. A guest review of the property will follow.

The house was exactly as we expected.

  • 5 of 5

The experience was very positive. The house was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. As we had seven people traveling with us, staying in a house was a positive experience. We enjoyed having a pool and hot tub to ourselves. It was very convenient for getting around the area. We enjoyed trying new to us restaurants and the local beaches.

Weekend Get away

  • 3 of 5

Over all the house was ok for a quick trip. It was clean on arrival but did have a weird old house smell. That could be the coast weather not sure. The shoreline was close and there are restraunts and a grocery store that are fairly close as well. The house it self was roomy and had plenty of beds and nice size bedrooms. Parking was ok just know its on a one way street. The pool was clean and the kitchen was cute. The table was large enough to have a family gathering. If you are traveling with elders, plus size or small kids I would take into consideration the bathrooms are very akward and small. The stair rail is kind of steep and the rail itself is low upstairs. Over all it was ok but the place seems to need a few upgrades and a bit of sprucing up.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was perfect for our family of 8. It was clean however if you plan to cook you might consider taking pots and pans and baking items and a set of knifes. Everything else in the kitchen was stocked up and in good condition. I would highly recommend spending s few dollars on a new set of cooking wear and purchase a few baking pans like a cooking sheet and a muffin tin. Also the can opener is broken and the cooking utensils could be replaced. There are a lot of broken or almost broken items.
