Sylena E. The communication and accessibility (24x7) of Turnkey was top-notch! We didn’t have many questions as the guest portal provided everything we needed, but when we did need support, they were fast, courteous, and extremely helpful. I appreciated being able to text or call them, and they always responded right away. The home was clean, obviously well kept, and exactly as described on the site. Individually sealed packets for towels and extra linens really put our “pandemic” concerns at ease. The property was beautiful and the private beach access was truly a differentiator. Our family had a wonderful time!

Barbara B. I would avoid this rental until they do some general repairs and maintenance. You are paying a very high price (check additional costs) and should not expect a camp-like experience: 1) couldn't get into the property as the key lock wasn't working had to call Turnkey to fix; 2)the sink in the kitchen had such poor water pressure the dishwasher didn't clean; 3)smoke detector was beeping early in the morning and needed new batteries, again Turnkey was slow to respond; 4) fuse blew when plugging in the toaster; had to call Turnkey to find out where the fuse box was located; took a frustratingly long time for response; 5) Had to purchase some basic kitchen items (a kettle, a can opener, etc.) in order to use the kitchen with no help from Turnkey. Turnkey was slow to respond and not helpful. (They did refund me $550 but my week of vacation became me washing dishes and waiting to hear back from Turnkey.) I chose this property to avoid having to go into town due to MV being in the red during Covid. I was very disappointed in the management. That said, this is a gorgeous property, a 10 minute walk to the beach, but unfortunately not well maintained or managed.
