Carrie C. This place is fantastic. The rooms are small but it lends itself to a cozy stay. Everything was clean and well stocked. And the yard is exceptional! I highly recommend this Travis Heights gem!

TRAVIS HEIGHTS BUNGALOW

April 2019

Great location to the SOCO area, and in a very quiet neighborhood. It's a great little house which was remodeled with great attention to detail. The interior of the house was spotless, but the outside needs to be thoroughly cleaned. All of the outside furniture, and front porch are covered with all of the good stuff the spring season brings in.

GREAT LOCATION / CONFUSING MANAGEMENT

May 2019

Rented this on VRBO; Turn Key apparently manages it (?). VRBO lists check-in / check-out times online; we received a confirmation email after paying with those same times. Turn Key sent me an email and text the day before check-out stating that our check-out would be 10:00 am and that they could not extend it. I firmly stated that we would be checking out at 11:00 am per our original booking agreement. I sent Turn Key a screen shot of our original booking confirmation and received a return message that they would forward this to whomever. We checked out a little before 11:00 am but the exchanges between myself and Turn Key left my weary. I don't need copious text messages and emails about a check-out time that has been pre-determined, particularly on a 3 night rental. We had gone to San Antonio for the day and I spent as much time on my phone communicating with Turn Key as I did at some of the locations we visited. It completely ate into our family time, and I resented it.
The unit was very clean when we arrived with a few exceptions. The front porch needed to be cleaned off before it could be used. I thought it should have been clean when we arrived. Also, there were towels hanging in one bathroom & we did not know if they were clean or dirty. One felt as if it had been used, yuck. The wood ceiling in the sitting area is very attractive, but it does have dust hanging from it.
The location is great. We have stayed closer to SoCo in other rentals, but this is quiet, peaceful, and completely walkable.
Beds were comfortable, but the memory foam in the master is a bit more saggy on one side than the other. Maybe time to rotate the mattress.
The wifi instructions in the home were incorrect.Turn Key responded quickly to my text, but they should be updated.
My bottom line takeaway as a seasoned vacation-rental traveler... I will no longer knowingly rent properties which are managed by TurnKey.
