Ray Q. We enjoyed our family weekend at Island Time very much. Great location and owners who took time to add some welcoming touches. We would definitely stay here again.

Deanna P. Island Time

PROs:Close to the beach; Budget Friendly; Beach Cart,beach towels,and beach chairs available; Turnkey has the potential to be good rental company option

CONs: Home wasn’t inspected prior to arrival
-Siding Missing(they did tell me this prior to arrival)
-Contractor dumpster is out front HUGE EYESORE
-Front Door lock didn’t work and we had to use a backup key/ Key doesn't work well either/lock needs replaced
-Cockroaches throughout the home. Turnkey had someone out there to spray within a couple of hours of us getting there but we didn’t want to stay because we have a toddler and now insecticide was all through the home. They gave us the option of a 100.00 refund or a full refund and cancel the trip. There were no other homes to move us to. It was a holiday week so we didn’t have a lot of options if we canceled and found another house.
-Shower is horrible: NOT PICTURED WELL, Tiny,unable to adjust shower head, the floor area looks to be coming apart very old and just not pleasant
-Washer & Dryer: Under the house/ NO Clothes Basket
-Outside shower: No light
-Rugs and couches need to be cleaned
-Very few outlets in the home
-Some of the doors in the house don't close and lock

The house has great potential but I just dont feel as though it was ready to be rented. Repair and some updates need to happen. I also think a lot could have been avoided if a Turnkey representative had inspected the property prior to our arrival.


July 2020

We had a great stay at Island Time. It rained almost every day we were there but we really enjoyed spending time inside the home. It was very clean, kitchen was stocked well (coffee pot and Keurig) and super cute. With the outdoor shower, the one bathroom for 6 guests was not an issue. Great view of the water and a short walk to the beach. The only downside was the exterior of the home had suffered some damage from recent storms that got worse throughout the week and was not in the best shape. I spoke with the owners and this was getting fixed shortly after our stay. Overall, a great stay and we would stay here again!
