Anne T. Many things attracted us to this rental, sadly it was disappointed upon arrival. Photos did not depict neighbors immediately behind or to both sides of rental. Luckily, those houses were vacant during our stay. The master bedroom balcony looked severely rotted. Upon entry of the rental, it was noticeably smaller compared to the website photos. Though it was adequate space for our family, the "Chef's Kitchen" especially appeared larger. It was chilly inside the house; we were unsuccessful in turning on the gas fireplace. Several cobwebs were on the light fixtures, stairways and ceilings. The back door had "Do Not Use" note on it, yet an Emergency Exit sign was posted above. The kitchen floor and spiral staircase handrails were sticky. Further disappointment with a "Do Not Use" sign on the door to the balcony. The outdoor hot tub display panel was not working, nor could you turn up the jets or the temperature. It became more of a heated pool for our toddlers. The horseshoe pit it was found covered in weeds with no horseshoes. At dark, the front porch sensor-lights were not working; one bulb was missing and one was burnt out. The back motion light constantly stayed on, yet signs inside indicated to not turn off the light switch. I reported the issues to TurnKey and they had a repairman out to the property within an hour. He was able to replace the bulbs in several light fixtures and fix the fireplace/remote. However, he shared that they were aware the hot tub was not in working condition. This was never disclosed to us prior to booking. There was no response from owner after three emails re: a discount code. TurnKey however did offer one night free for the sub-standard rental. Minor things: No lighter for gas BBQ nor working thermometer, scissors didn't work, no garage lights, no pantry, broken knob on washer/dryer, no crayons for coloring books, incomplete deck of cards, back porch outlet not working, loose dog roaming and dumping on property. Plus: Quiet neighborhood
