ROOM TO SPREAD OUT.

October 2020

Mark H. The size of a house for 10 people was fantastic, so much Room to spread out. Pool area was awesome, boat dock was great as well. Having beach towels provided was a big plus. Location was great. Bathroom beds showers all were great. Plenty of place settings, glassware and kitchen appliances; Coffee pot toaster blender, etc.

Disliked · Our review is based on having a large number of people (10).
For the kitchen a few more amenities would be helpful, salt pepper seasoning salts, basic kitchen staples like kitchen garbage bags. Could be a little more flexible with check in and check out. One of kayaks had a crack in it and was unusable. TV in game room did not work. Understanding this is a rental, but the game Room amenities ping pong paddles, pool balls are in serious need of replacing. Hot tub water had a greenish tint to it. One of the patio French doors would open even when locked.
Electricity usage and use of the pool heater was unclear. We barely used the hot tub because of the electricity usage confusion.
A little maintenance would go a long way towards a 5 star review.

GREAT LOCATION BUT HOUSE IS DATED AND NEEDS AN UPDATE

January 2021

Drew S. Wonderful location. Dock is a plus. Proximity to the beach is convenient. Downside is the house a d grounds are in need of an update and some serious maintenance. 1970s decor and looks good from a distance but up close really shows her age. Carpets, bathroom, bedding, need replacement. Outdoor areas also overgrown and in need of work. Roof deck chairs all broken.

NICE BUT NEEDS SOME TLC

January 2021

Paula G. The best part of this property is the private pool area and view of the canal, followed by its proximity to the beach and the hot tub. The kitchen was well equipped allowing us to prepare just about all of our meals there (still being COVID cautious). The grill was a big help too.
The condition of the home, however, was a disappointment. It is really showing wear with nicked up paint, rust around shower doors, stained carpeting, stained and worn upholstery on all main floor furniture. While that was all unsightly, a number of things were not functioning correctly: ceiling fan/light in one bedroom, shower and bathroom sink fixtures on the main floor, and tub draining very slowly (standing in water during shower.) We texted the management company and they did send a local person to repair the bathroom fixtures. We understand this is a rental and things are bound to happen but I feel I spent too much of my vacation time addressing maintenance issues. I feel like the value for what I paid to stay here wasn't there. In fact, I felt like I had to apologize to my family for what was broken or lacking - like deck chairs on master balcony, beach chairs (we replaced the broken ones that were there) or the lack of maintenance to the landscaping. As such, I could not recommend staying at this home in its current state. Also, if you plan to pay to heat the pool, make sure the mgt. company has it properly set up for you upon arrival. Valves were turned off and pool cover not on so we lost 3 days of what we paid extra for. It took the maintenance man to figure this out after several texts to TurnKey. This had nothing to do with the air temperature.

NOT WORTH THE $/NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED

February 2021

So, we made the best of our vacation, but let me tell you, it felt more like being at home than a vacation. We would never rent this property nor would will use TurnKey rentals ever again.
The pictures of the inside of the property were mostly accurate, but the outside was another store. There was absolutely no preparation for our arrival regarding anything outside. The pool was not cleaned, still had the cover on it - there is no cover real for the pool cover so we had to just throw it to the side. The pool jets were not on - we had to figure out how to do that. We arrived on Sunday and did not have a clean pool until Thursday when the pool guy arrived - he told us - he will not clean the pool if the cover is on - so who knows when it was cleaned last. It was very disappointing.
The hot tub was really an issue - we called several times to get someone to clean it and they told us no - there was no one available to do it. We googled how to clean it so the teens could use it. Very unacceptable.
In my opinion, when we are paying that much for a rental - they should have been there on that day to clean & take pool cover off for us.
The dock was really gross, mold and poop all over it and if you wanted to use the boat lift - think again, the protective layer of felt on the lift was ripped and it would damage the underside of your boat if you did use it.
The deck and stairs were moldy and had not been power washed in very long time.
The landscaping was a disaster - nothing trimmed or cleaned - tons of dead greenery everywhere. A landscaper did come during the week but only picked up dead stuff off the front of the house - nothing cleaned in the back and it was so overgrown you cannot even walk around the pool.
The kayaks were a joke - they were gross and dirty - only one that looked decent enough to use and we found out it had a hole in it - while the kids were on it - so that was fun. very minimal amount of toilet items to
