It is a quality home with nice bedding, a good kitchen and nice landscaping. The management company communicated well and everything went smoothly.
On the critical side:
- the home smelled musty upon entry ever time,
- the second bedroom while nice needs window covers on one of its windows, else you will be waking up with the sun,
- kitchen cabinets need knobs.
- this should be strictly advertised as a 3 bedroom with an ancillary small room with a pull out. Saying its a 4 bedroom home is disingenuous. I know some may call be sexist but for me the only person who would be okay using that 4th bedroom would be a 12 - 20 year old male. I wouldn't want my daughters being out there and no adult would desire that bedding.
This was an easy, simple experience which went very smoothly. The house is comfortable and very well located. The fourth room has a sofa bed, not a real bed which is a shame.
To clarify, this review is for the property at 593 Picacho. We initially rented a house nearby on E. valley rd but the water heater conked out and Turnkey Vacation Rentals absolutely fixed the problem by immediately moving us to another larger and nicer place at no additional cost. The house was larger than we needed but would be ideal for groups of 6-8. Great outdoor area with pool. Too cold to swim now but still nice to sit outside in the sun. Close to SB but not in the middle of the high traffic. Also some nice restaurants and shops nearby if you don't feel like driving too far. We had breakfast at Jeanine's and dinner at Tre Lune and both were excellent. This property is a good fit for a large family that wants some peace and quiet and doesn't need to be walking distance from downtown SB or the beach.
We loved it! The decorations and accommodations were better than any hotel. The location was amazing. It was such a great experience.
The house was clean and when we couldn't get in because the door code was not updated, we got a call from the property management within 10 min. Unfortunately the house didn't have enough indoor seating at a table for 8 people. 1 table seated 2, and another seated 4 in the living room. The kitchen needed more than 1 roll of paper towels and the 4th bedroom off of the main house was not finished. Wires were still hanging off the wall for lights and you couldn't lock the door to protect your personal items. Although the house accommodates dogs, there is no fencing in the back yard to stop them from going to the front road. So that means leash time or monitoring anytime they are in the backyard.
The pool and jacuzzi were exceptionally clean and very relaxing once the controls were figured out.
I would recommend this house to 4 older adults, no dogs
