Ben D. from Highland Village, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 The house was perfect. Had plenty of space and two living rooms. The backyard was the spacious and private with plenty of shade. I would stay here again.

Amber R. from Washington, DC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 We rented this house for a reunion of 8 friends flying into Austin from around the country. The property was pretty easy to find and has a good location in walking distance of South Congress Ave shopping and restaurants, and an easy taxi ride to the East side. We didn't get any street noise and had good privacy the whole weekend. The property was clean and I didn't notice any bugs or pests (which other reviews had). The listing promised 2 sofa beds - which we needed for all of us to have a bed - only 1 had sheets or blankets for the first night, which we didn't notice until we were getting ready for bed late at night. We had to have someone sleep on the couch, which was fine but not the comfort you're looking for on a vacation. [The management company did promptly supply these the next day.] The bedrooms were also not well insulated with seals around the door jams, so you could easily hear conversations happening across the house. With a big group, this led to some poor sleep. I slept on one of the twin beds which was not comfortable. The kitchen had the basics we needed for snacks and drinks. Overall, it fit basic needs but fell short of the comfort we expected. It was a good price for the location, though, so I guess it was a trade-off.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Amber, thanks for the kind words and helpful feedback! We love hearing what we did right and the areas where we could approve. You were great guests and we look forward to hearing from you again soon! -The TurnKey VR Team
Reviewed by: Laurie A. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 We were in Austin for the Formula 1 race along with 5 of our son's friends to celebrate his 30th birthday. That weekend it rained 6 inches, but we were snug and dry in the house. The location was perfect for getting back and forth to the race, about 30 minutes with traffic. It was only a few minutes from downtown 6th street which was visited every evening by out son and his friends. South Congress street is walking distance from the house, fun stores and restaurants.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Laurie, thanks for taking the time to write us. We're so glad you chose to celebrate your son's 30th with us. You were perfect guests and we look forward to hearing from you again soon! -The TurnKey VR Team
Reviewed by: Bianca B. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 This house was perfect!! Cozy feeling, but spacious!! The courtyard is beautiful and it was in a really good location. I would recommend bringing extra toilet paper because we did run out, but everything else was great! One of the guests did mention the twin beds were a little hard and tough to sleep on bug this definitely would not prevent us from renting this location again. Very pleased!

John G. from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 loved the inside. Very well taken care of. outside was dissapoining mainly bc of the fountain was a mosquito haven! Had 6 guests here with me and everyone complained about the mosquitoes. Other than that, very easy to find, quick to get anywhere you want in DT Austin. I would stay there again.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi John, thanks for the kind words and helpful feedback! We use your comments to make sure our homes are up to the highest standards. We have since taken steps to keep the mosquitoes away. You were great guests and we look forward to hearing from you again next time! -The TurnKey VR Team
Reviewed by: Anthony H. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 The location of this home is perfect, right in the heart of Austin. The home was clean and well maintained. It had all the amenities we needed for our 4 day stay. The backyard also provided a great place to relax as well.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Thank you for staying with us and great to hear you enjoyed your rental experience with us.

Reviewed by: Trenny R. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 We loved the place and the location. We were 3 generations staying together and we loved the house. The Hot water in the master you just need to run it for a while to get a hot shower and you need to scoop out the mosquito larvae from the fountain every day if you want to be out side but it was easy theres a net and we just scooped it out onto the bricks and stepped on them and got it under control. There weren't enough pillow cases for the 10 of us so you might want to bring some.Theres a pool just down the street and we walked to every where but were all walkers. We would go back!
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Trenny, thank you for staying with us and using our vacation rental for you family gathering. Despite your inconveniences we are glad you enjoyed the home and neighborhood pool, something to take advantage of. Thank you again and we hope we can welcome you and the family back for a future visit ~ TurnKey VR
Reviewed by: Linda A. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2015 Located just a few blocks from S. Congress in a quiet neighborhood. This house had plenty of room for everyone with a well equipped kitchen. The patio and garden area are very nice. We had a really great stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hi Linda, thank you for your review, we do appreciate hearing from our guests.

Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 The house was nice and in a good location. Needed some cleaning and sprucing up for all our family to arrive. Not enough towels, blankets, or pillows to accommodate the eight to ten people it says. Outside grounds had not been kept up or taken care of in quite a while - gutters were overgrown, and outside area needed sweeping and washing. Tile floors throughout he house had not been cleaned very well. Property managers were called several times -- responded to only one call. At least, they came and emptied the trash cans and sprayed for the fire ants. Ample parking for everyone, and would be great for entertaining in the yard.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Dear Anna, thank you for the comments and the feedback. There were areas during your stay where we could have provided better service. We always want to give our guests an excellent stay. We hope you were still able to enjoy your time in Austin aside from these inconveniences. We have been at the home to take care of these lawn issues and made sure ample towels are stocked. Thank you again for the feedback ~ TurnKey VR
Reviewed by: Marisa B. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 Cannot say enough about the wonderful home we stayed in in Austin last week. The location was 1/2 mile off of Congress Street, walkable to some of Congress Street. It was in a quiet neighborhood which we enjoyed many walks. The home itself was extremely comfortable but the highlight was the patio and backyard. Pictured is a view from the backyard looking towards the house. The brick patio is a dream. Perfect spot for coffee/breakfast and cocktails. There is a water fountain in one corner and blooming wisteria - truly a magical spot. Our property manager, Turnkey was available to us when we had a question and also contacted us to see if we arrived ok. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Hello Marisa, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and for staying in our rental home. So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, the location and South Congress areas is one of our favorites as well. Sounds like you made good use of the patio area! Hopefully we can welcome you again in the near future ~ TurnKey VR
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 Great location. Close to Congress. Rooms were nice. Loved the French doors. Cold use a little TLC and updates. And don't count on comfortable pull out couches. (Needs new couches) beds were comfy tho. Also, they only had 1 wine glass. And needs more towles. Good vibe and nice garden patio. Would consider staying here again. Especially if the owners made a few small updates.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Dear Audrey, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and for staying with us in our rental home. We would have been more then happy to bring out wine glasses and towels, the home should have been fully stocked. We will ensure that is set going forward. We are glad you enjoyed the overall quality of the home and the location. We always felt the South Congress areas was on of the best to explore Austin. Thank you for staying with us and hopefully we can see you again in the near future ~ TurnKey VR
Reviewed by: Eric R. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2015 The accommodations were clean, spacious and comfortably slept 10 people (we had 9). However, if you intend to stay for any period of time at the house be warned that you will receive several calls and e-mails complaining of noise well before 10 pm. The first call we received was around 6 pm and we received several more before 10 pm. We enjoyed a dinner at home after using the BBQ (charcoal only) to only be harassed for noise complaints. We were eventually threatened that the police may be called even though we had been respectfully enjoying the spacious rental we paid for. Additionally, we were reminded that if we had more than 10 people at the house we would be violating the agreement. At all times we had no more than 9. Additionally, several of the other guests weren't aware we were at because the surrounding house was so dark and quiet, so I don't know where the repeated noise complaints were coming from. Although I enjoyed the rest of Austin, I would likely not stay in a TurnKey house again because of this shameful service we received by threatening police and groundless warnings about violating the rental agreement. Be warned. I only give two stars for overall satisfaction because the accommodations were great. I also only recommend this place if you plan on only sleeping there.
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Thank you for sharing your feedback with us and we are sorry if we disturbed you. We were simply following our process and had received several noise complaints that evening. When this occurs, we are required to follow up on it. We hope that you can understand that this is for the guest safety as well as for the protection of our homes. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how this affected your trip. We will definitely be exploring ways in which we can follow up in a less intrusive way to our guests. -The TurnKey VR Team

Melinda W. from The Woodlands, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015 Accommodation worked well for our family and guests. Floor plan good with living room and TV room. I really liked that property had a bedroom with twin beds. Not everyone likes to share a bed! The other beds were either queen or king size. Again, many properties expect guests to share inadequate full sized beds. Kudos to owners! Kitchen was well equipped which was a pleasant surprise. We ended up only using one shower because we didn't know that the water in master bathroom took a really, really long time to get hot. I suggest you let future guests know about this. 10 of using only one shower...
Property Manager Response: Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals Thanks Melinda! We are glad you had a nice stay. Thanks for the shower tip. The Turnkey VR Team
