Reviewed by: Lea Anne N. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 Easy to get downtown and lady bird lake trail is very close. Great rental. The homeowners live downstairs and were super helpful at 7 am when the lights in the living room and kitchen went out. They got that fixed in a flash.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Thanks Lea Ann! We're so glad we were able to get your lights fixed so quickly. You were perfect guests and we look forward to hearing from you again soon! -The TurnKey VR Team

Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 My husband and I needed a quiet location close to our children's apartment in Austin to be our "home base" while helping out with the arrival of a new grandchild. What a great time in a fun little home! The decor is wonderful and invites exploring around the house with lots of unique things all in keeping with the vintage feel of the home.

Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 Funky, comfortable place to stay! Close to the lake and easy access to bars, food, & shops. Only miss was that there were only 2 beds (vs. the advertised 3). Would rent again

A guest from Richmond, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 Pros : The property was clean, quiet and in a great location . Cons : When you arrive there will be a long list of rules you are expected to follow also there was a Ouija board in the living room was a bit creepy to me .
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Julia, thank you so much for the helpful feedback! Your comments are crucial in helping up keep our homes up to the highest standards. You're right about the Ouija board; that is creepy! That was most likely left by a previous guest and we have since removed it. You were a perfect guest and we look forward to hearing from you again soon! -The TurnKey VR Team

Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 The management company bombarded us with emails during our brief stay requesting that a tablet they use for housekeeping be plugged in at all times. As there was no housekeeping during our stay this intrusion felt extremely invasive and demanding. We will not use a FlipKey rental going forward because of it.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Derrick, thanks for the helpful feedback. It helps us improve our homes and services for all of our guests. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. -The TurnKey VR Team
Laura L. from Holly Lake Ranch, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 This was such a cute cool place. We felt at home and loved the decor. The owner lives downstairs and came by a couple of times just to make sure we were good. I am a vintage loving soul so this was exactly my taste.
Reviewed by: Stephanie G. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 House is in amazing location. Very close to downtown, easy access to freeway, restaurants, & major grocery store. As I walked in home had oldies playing, it was great. Lots of antique decor throughout home. One thing that rubbed me wrong was when owner showed up Saturday evening asking what are plans were for the night & how many people were staying the night ??? I then recvd not one but 3 emails reminding me of check out time, that a late check out could not be accommodated . I did not ask for such a request . Luckily all guest who stayed had a beach towel, there was not a good pile of clean towels. House is great, unique but having the other cons put a damper on my recommendation to suggest staying here.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hello Stephanie, thank you for your review, we do appreciate the comments and the feedback. As we assume all guests are wanting a late check out, we sent up an notification system to let our guests know, however 3 emails seems excessive and w will follow up to see what happened there. As well, we stock our house with towels and if there were some missing we would have been happy to bring out a fresh supply, we will check that and again thank you for letting us know. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the home and location. Thank you for staying with us and all the best ~ TurnKey VR
Reviewed by: Danielle M. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 I stayed here with 5 other people and it was absolutely perfect. We loved all of the vintage decor, the beds were super comfortable, very close to Rainey street which was our favorite part of town, and the house had every utensil we needed for barbecuing and cooking. All around great stay would absolutely stay again!
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Danielle, Thank you so much for the great review! I am pleased you were able to take advantage of the kitchen, and also enjoyed being near Rainey St. It is one of my favorite places to go when I am downtown. I hope we are able to host you again soon, Turnkey VR

nancy r. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 My family and I loved this property. It made our long weekend in Austin so lovely. We loved the mid-century modern decorating. Every little detail was really tastefully and perfectly done. The location worked so well for every place that we needed to be. The owner stopped in to make sure that all was well, and she was a pleasure to talk with. Turnkey representative was so helpful and extremely professional. We could not have had a better experience! Thanks!

Jeremy R. from Townsend, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2014 I stayed here for a pre wedding getaway with 4 friends and had a blast! The house is a great alternative to a hotel and had plenty of space for all of us so that we weren't sick of each other after the 5 days there! It is right in the middle of all Austin has to offer and the owner, who lives downstairs, was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction to the entertainment! I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to everyone!
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Dear Jeremy, Thank you for the review! So good your rental home worked out well for you, definitely advantages versus a hotel. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Reviewed by: Linda R. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 This home is one of the cutest I've ever stayed in! The owner has a unique style of design and has given this house the most comfortable feel and adorable look. The two bedrooms are peaceful and have comfortable beds. The living room is well appointed with several spots to sit and visit with your family or friends. There are also several places to enjoy the outside. I hope to return very soon and stay here while experiencing Austin. The owner was also very helpful with ideas and information about where and what to do while in here.
Mike Q. from Denver, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 overall the property worked out fine. That said the photos led one to perceive the house as having one more room and bed than it actually does. Two separate views of the same bedroom give the impression that it is two distinct rooms. That said, we made do with the inflatable mattresses.
Neel D. from Kolkata, WB recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 We are a rock band from Kolkata, India. Our 2 nights stay at Donal & Merry's place was awesome. It was our first experience with Turnkey rentals and Erica is a god sent. From the time of booking, to sending brand new air matresses to always calling back on the phone whenever we required her, it was very helpful and satisfyting. Thanks Erica for suggesting Austin Java...great sandwiches and amazing coffee. The best part of the house is the front porch and the balcony for us smokers...the quaint rustic furtitures adds to the vintage artsy feel of Austin. Calling yellow cabs were easy and it didn't take much time to reach soco or 6th street. Donal and Merry were very pleasant hosts who live downstairs and did join us for a drink. The kitchen/ kitchen wares/ bathroom accesories/ sheets/ towels/ trash bin...everything was clean and easily accessible. We'd definitely go back and also recommend this house. Great place. Extremely well managed. Cheers!
Samuel P. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Great visit in Austin. Lovely home on quiet street. (Tho...busy East Riverside Drive is a stone's throw away.) Home very well appointed. Loved it. If you like natural wood furnishings, you'll be in heaven.
