GREAT LITTLE COTTAGE WITH EVERYTHING
A GREAT NEW HOUSE - NO DOOR IN BATHROOM, THOUGH
There was some instability in how their open wi-fi worked for a day or two, but I successfully used a backup wi-fi network with a password written on the router inside the property.
The only issue we really had was that there is no door in the bathroom, which makes visits there awkward if there is more than one person in the house.
Turnkey charges you a sizable non-refundable fee for any damages that might occur during your stay, which is basically a fee for nothing (or a very expensive home insurance, if you will). An alternative to that is a security deposit of 3 to 5 thousand dollars. I had problem extricating those money long after my check-out and needed to call them at least twice to remind about my deposit which was not released automatically. Given that they make the charge of the deposit at the moment of booking, you need to be prepared that they will hold your $3,000 for weeks or even months, depending on how early you book.
LOVELY MOUNTAIN COTTAGE!
NICE RENTAL, TERRIBLE RENTAL COMPANY (TURNKEY)
1. The only door in the place was the closet door. There was no door separating the living area and the bedroom, and no door to the bathroom. To each their own, but I like my privacy while using the restroom, and I’ll leave it at that.
2. There was no shower door AND the shower head was on the same side of the shower as the opening. Water everywhere.
3. It would have been nice to have either a nicer couch in the living area with the TV, or a TV in the bedroom. The couch was very tiny and not very good for lounging. If not a better couch, I would have been happy with a TV in the bedroom.
TurnKey Rentals on the other hand was a nightmare to deal with due to COVID. Our trip was booked for the weekend after everything closed down. They were not the least bit transparent or helpful when it came to cancelling or rescheduling our trip.
I called TurnKey to ask if they were allowing refunds due to the pandemic and the only answer they had was no. I even asked if it was being considered, and they said no. No script about being concerned about anyone’s safety or that they were monitoring the situation or anything. Just no.
After that, we googled TurnKey and COVID cancellations to see if they had posted an update. We found a post buried on their site about offering credits due to COVID. This was not emailed to me, nor was it posted on the main page of their site.
We called again to ask if they had updated their cancellation policy, and I was told no, but was not even offered a credit for a future stay. I had to ask for it. When we rebooked our stay with the credit, we were charged an additional $50+ for the same number of days.
