Reviewed by: Meghan H. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 The location of this house was great, it was easy to walk everywhere and the local bus stopped right at the corner. The yard space and fire pit were very private and fun to use.The space was well laid out and very tidy - it was a great space for the five of us.There were some issues though, mainly that the exterior light by the front door was gone - it made arriving at night and negotiating the keypad scary and hard. And the front door lock was unaligned so it was tricky to open and close.The bathrooms were tired, particularly the main floor bathroom - it was actually pretty grim. The tile and tub badly need to be replaced.Last oddity, there were no hangers. Lots of closet space, no hangers.The kitchen was well stocked, and when the dishwasher didn't turn on they were happy to help (light switch on the wall, who knew?!).

A guest from Arnold, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 What a great little (yet not so!)house this is. It was perfect in many ways: traffic flow through house, kitchen size and layout, acomodating everyone over several days, close to Zilker and bike kiosks, minutes from Mercury Hall, close to downtown. The house was clean, cool, attractive, and great towels (someone previously didn't like them). I would stay here again. It was so smart to rent this house for the wedding week.

Excellent restaurants like Uchi (sushi) and Black's BBQ are within short walking distance. There are CityBikes available for rental at the intersection of Barton Springs & Bouldin. The house was clean when we arrived. One thing I'd suggest to the owners is to provide oven mitts in the kitchen. We improvised with towels.

Matthew O. from Mill Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Overall good, house was not in as good of condition as advertised. The grounds were overgrown and unkempt, but location was great and it served the purpose of the weekend, so generally pleased. Oh, they also seriously lacked on towels and the ones they had were really hand towels
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hello Matthew, thank you for the review and thank you for the feedback.

allen c. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2015 Great place to rent. Walking distance to downtown, South Congress, and right across the street from Auditorium Shores. The house was clean and the beds were comfy. Plenty of space inside and a nice yard for a family. One negative: I asked the rental company whether a pack and play and high chair was available for my infant. They told me the property did not have those items so I rented them. When I got there, there was a pack and play and high chair in the closet. The rental company really should know what is at the house. Just a minor issue, and more with the rental company than the house itself. Would definitely rent again!
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Allen, thank you for the review, we do apprecaite it. We apologize for the pack n play confusion, we make sure all the amenities are up to date. Great you enjoyed your vacation home and location, we always thought this South Austin location was a fun place to be to explore.

Reviewed by: Nadina B. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 Overall I was very satisfied with our stay. The house is newly decorated and close enough to South Congress and downtown areas that you could walk or take a quick uber. Great fire pit in the back that I wish we got to take advantage of. There's also a bike share stop right outside the house that was really fun to do one morning. We fit 9 girls in this house very comfortably and had an amazing weekend. The team was very communicative with me to make sure the stay was great. My only (minor) complaints were that the bathrooms could use some freshening and there were not enough towels provided. I did ask for more towels to be brought over but they were pretty small and not actually bath towels.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Nadina, Thank you for your review on your stay in our home.

Reviewed by: Tara m. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 I thoroughly enjoyed this vacation home along with TurnKey as a company. Everything was so easy and taken care of, I had no worries as I have had before with other rental companies. The home was nice and clean when we arrived except the first floor bathroom floor being dirty. We were very satisfied and fit comfortably. It is very close to many ideal destinations in Austin which made it easy to get around. Would have liked to spend more time in the backyard but it was not very presentable and so it was not as ideal to spend time out there. The chairs were all in disarray and the grass was un-kept.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are glad that you enjoyed our home and our service and will definitely take a look at the yard. This home is on a regular lawn service but we have been getting a lot of rain in Austin lately, which may have contributed to the longer grass. We will make sure to take care of this right away. Thank you again for letting us know, and for being great guests. We hope to hear from you again. -The TurnKey VR Team
Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2014 Hose needs some care. It was clean and warm (cold snap while we were there) but the bathrooms are outdated, the furniture is old (except beds were great), handles were falling off, vent in upstairs was hanging loose from the ceiling, dresser was falling apart, kitchen was not well stocked with pans, etc... Termites are attacking the front porch pillars. WiFi worked good and the managers were very responsive when I called trying to figure out how to start the dishwasher.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Dear Michael, Thank you for staying with us and also for your feedback. We do appreciate the guest comments as it helps us improve our rental home and our guest experiences. Many of these minor issues we have gone in and repaired, handles and the vents. We are in the process of repairing the pillars and shoring up the foundation, we expect that to be fixed shortly. It was something we had planned to do, but is now more of an imperative. We do like receiving the comments and thank you again. I hope we can welcome you back in the near future. All the best, TurnKey Vacation Rentals

Linda G. from Kansas City, KS does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014 House has crumbling foundation. The flower in the picture is there to cover the column that has wood rot. One outlet quit working. A drawer front fell off. Washing machine doesn't work, nor the coffee pot. No directions to use things. Mold on shower curtain and upstairs bathroom fixture. Space in house was fine. It was clean. But the amendiities were awful. No washcloths, Kleenex, thin towels. I was embarrassed that I had picked this place for my 6 friends and I.

A guest from Littleton, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2014 Property is in desirable location and property manager was good with updating emails and alerts. The home was a fun place to stay and served it's purpose. I have stayed in other VRBO's in the area as I visit Austin frequently. This property does need a little TLC. Bathrooms need updating, especially shower faucet in Master felt like gym shower faucet with hard spray. Other than that there were no issues and home was relaxing and inviting.
Reviewed by: Emily M. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 We had an amazing Austin experience in this house that we rented. The rental company was very accommodating and we absolutely loved the house. There was plenty of room to sleep, and it even had additional air mattresses in the closet, and bedding for the beds. The house was newly decorated and everything was perfect. The company allowed us to check in early, and check out later, and they did not charge us. The house sleeps 8, however we had 12 girls and managed to fit perfectly! (shared the king, two on the aero, and one slept on the sofa). I would recommend this house to girls looking to rent for a bachelorette etc. I would DEFINITELY stay here again or look into renting another house from this rental company. We all LOVED it. Aside from the house being absolutely amazing, the location was great! We were a 5 minute Uber ride away from the action and the Ubers did not cost us more than 8$ each ride. (it was typically a 5$ Uber ride) There were bikes you could rent for 24 hours across the street that only cost 10$. Definitely look into renting this house, we had a blast!
Reviewed by: Susan C. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 What a perfect house to stay at during our visit to Austin. It provided everything we needed for our family while in Austin for a wedding. Close to Congress street and a lll the happening bars and restaurants. Easy access to the highway. Beds and linens clean and comfortable. Great common space.I would recommend as perfect alternative to families who want more space than a hotel and more comfort.
Jill M. from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 7 girlfriends rented this house for a weekend getaway and absolutely loved it! The house was spacious for 7 of us and the beds were very comfortable. The backyard was great to sit out on the patio, although we forgot to buy bug spray! Good location...we did not have a car, but everything was a short/cheap cab ride away or a nice (half mile/mile) walk to the places we wanted to go. We would definitely stay here again if we return!
Sarah K. from Corpus Christi, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Overall, we loved this property, but there were a few things that could be improved upon... The house is so cute inside and out. We loved how close it was to SoCo and Zilker Park.The listing advertised this house accommodating 8, which is technically true, but the sofa couch was horribly uncomfortable, dirty, and there was no bedding provided for it. The full bed was 'meh'. The king was super comfy though. The backyard is so cute! Perfect for BBQs or just hanging out. The fire pit would be awesome in cooler weather! The kitchen was fully equipped with a coffee pot, pots, pans, (no muffin pan), and tons of glasses. Overall, I would recommend this property, but bring your own towels, and bedding if you need to use the sleeper.

Reviewed by: Clara C. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 This was the perfect place for our bachelorette party weekend. When we arrived at this cute house, the decor and everything else in the pictures were right on and even better in person. There is a living room when you walk in and two bedrooms to the left with a shared bathroom. Then once you pass the first living room, you enter the kitchen and dining area, which is surrounded by windows. Then, adjacent to the dining area is another living room, where there is another sofa that turns into a bed. Walk upstairs to the master suite, which is where we put the bride to be along with the maid of honor. There were beautiful views with it's own balcony. There is also a quirky room surrounded by windows from the master bedroom where you climb up a ladder. The patio and backyard is beautiful. We sat outside and talked until almost dawn. It's by far the best and most memorable place we could have found. It will hold a sentimental place in our hearts. Thanks to the owners for providing this home to us. We experienced the best of Austin here.
Reviewed by: Eric H. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 The house itself was very nice with all the amenities required plus the added bonus of the internet. The major complaint we had was the fact that due to a recent storm a very large branch from a neighbours tree had snapped off and was held up by the fence at one end and at the other by a high branch from another tree. This was a very dangerous situation in that the support of said bough could have given way suddenly and without warning thus killing or injuring anyone below. The previous renters told us they had reported this problem but nothing had been done about it! As it was we did not make use of the garden because of the imminent danger. Also the front and back gardens (yards) had not been maintained at all and were a total disgrace! As it happened the owner called around unexpectedly and was more than a little upset at the garden situation! As a result of his visit a man turned up and took a number of photographs and said he see that it was dealt with. This had not happened before we left!

Allison L. from Prarie Villiage, KS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 The only reason this property didn't get consistent 5 stars is that the back yard had some trash & cig butts strewn around. We used the fire pit every night. Really enjoyed our stay at this house.

Jessica A. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 From the moment I made a reservation the communication with the office staff at Turn Key was amazing. They were very informative and every time I called or emailed they responded very quickly and with answers to my questions ( I had a lot). They accomodated us wanting a late check out but when there was a mix up with the maids as to what time to come I called the office at 10 am on Sunday morning and the lady that answered handled the situation so professionally. I could not have been more pleased. My only negative comment about the property is that the pull out bed was so uncomfortable that I just slept on the couch instead and there could be some more dusting done behind the couch and in certain areas of the home but other than that it was great for a group of 7 ladies. The El Alma Restaurant is great for dinner and 1/2 block walking distance. The kitchen was excellent to work in and the gas stove was a plus! There isn't an ice maker so be sure to bring your own. Loved the decor and outside fire pit! I would definitely rent this place again.
Reviewed by: Deneese S. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2013 I really enjoyed working with the property management people. They were professional and very considerate. The areas that I think need attention are the cleaning crew and some updates that need to be made to the home. The home was not very clean and I've already sent my comments to the property management crew. An update might be to replace the molded curtains in the downstairs bath. Not very nice to look at. I think this home could rate all 5 stars with just a little work.
Karen B. from Tigard, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 We recently stayed in this home. There were 8 our party. We really enjoyed that the house was with in walking distance to shopping and dinning. The home was clean and the floor plan worked very well for us. We would stay here again, but did have a few inconveniences. There is no garbage can in the kitchen, we would place a grocery bag on the floor. The fold out sofa bed is really hard and we couldn't find any bedding for it. On our second night we did find some bedding in a locked closet, but the mattress was so hard our family member had to sleep 4 nights on the sofa. There is a very nice fire pit, but the out door furniture was covered with dust and leaves and some of the chair pads where on the ground, looked like they had not been used or cleaned in a very long time. Over all we enjoyed out stay and if the sofa bed was replaced we would come back.
Joe L. from Bettendorf, Iowa recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 This property was great for my friends and I as we were traveling from all over the United States to Austin. The keypad was great as everyone got in at different times, so we did not need to wait at the house to let people in to drop off their stuff. It also gave us a meeting space where we could hang out, both inside and out as it had a large backyard with washers built in. It was really nice to not have to cram into a hotel room to hang out with people before going out as we were able to relax and conserve our energy for the night's activities. It's a little over a mile to the 6th street bars, so we were able to walk to and from. It was also close to a few restaurants as quite a few food trucks, so getting food was never a problem if you did not want to cook. Everything was great, and I would definitely recommend staying at the house.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 I hosted my family from out of town for a weekend at this little place (where you can still sleep a family of 7 grown people pretty comfortably). Loved being a typical Austin neighborhood setting with a fantastic location with fun and modern interior decor. Please be advised to make sure that if you do a "late check-out" that your code will still be good/you have a back-up code!
Elizabeth A. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 This house was wonderful for our stay in Austin. Location was great, the house was as pictured and the check in/check out was easy. I would recommend this place and I would stay here again. The only things I would recommend is maybe providing more toilet paper and paper towels, I read about that in a review before we left and I came prepared but otherwise we would have had to make a trip to the store because there was little provided. Otherwise we were very satisfied with this really great house and experience working with TurnKey.
David J. from New York, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013 The location couldn't have been any better. In general everything was in good condition and we for the most part had everything we needed. There was even sunscreen and bug spray provided which was a nice touch. The company was extremely professional and accommodating, letting us check out a little late and being very responsive to my emailed inquiries. The only things I would improve were the place only had one roll of TP per floor which caused us to have to take a trip for more, and one of the chairs outside was broken. Overall, a great experience and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an affordable place in the heart of the city.
Lily B. from Eagan, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 This house is totally charming! Spacious inside with lovely outdoor spaces and offstreet parking. The convention center is only 1 mile away and the Ladybird trail is just across the street for your daily run. We stayed for 6 days of SXSW and never took a cab once.Loved having the washer/dryer although we didn't end up using them and the keyless entry makes thing a breeze when your group doesn't want to be joined at the hip all day.Lastly, Erica from TurnKey was THE BEST EVER. She gave a monster list of incredible recommendations for restaurants and bars in the area that were tailored to our tastes and every one of them was spot on.The property is adorable, in a prime location and perfect for a family or a few coworkers if you don't mind sharing one of the bathrooms.HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
