MOUNTAIN LAUREL BEAUTY
DREAMY MOUNTAIN CABIN
I called in the weeks prior to our stay to ask questions about their Coronavirus cleaning protocols and how closely they book rentals because our family is trying to prevent exposure. TurnKey said they did NOT permit back-to-back bookings at this home. (We would have reserved a day prior to our planned arrival to let the home sit 24 hours without renters if we had been told they would allow back-to-back rentals.) They assured me they did not allow this at this location, so the latest other guests would be at the property was 11am on the day prior to our arrival at 4pm.
When we arrived about 15 minutes prior to 4pm and found there was still a car at the home, so we left to get takeout and returned. We found the home hadn't been cleaned properly. The main room toilet had urine under the seat. There were hairs on bathtub and sink surfaces. A plate in the cabinet was visibly dirty. Rug in one of the bedrooms was old and heavily soiled shag carpet. I was really shocked. We were over 4 hours from home and it was getting late, so I donned gloves and cleaned as well as I could before bedtime, opening all windows to air things out.
The following day I spoke to TurnKey and expressed disappointment, but asked that they not send a cleaner because we didn't want further potential exposure to people outside our family. I inquired about the car at the property when we arrived a little prior to 4pm, and asked if there was a chance they did book the home back to back. She confirmed YES they had renters check out the same day we arrived. A rep from TurnKey offered to try and compensate us in some way but this is not enough. We are a higher risk family and just wanted our safety to be taken seriously. Once the risk of exposure has occurred, it's done.
I would never rent from TurnKey again. I don't believe they take cleaning protocols seriously, or put family's safety
