Kelli K. Apr 2022
This is a nice home with great amenities. It needs a deep clean/updates though. There are lights burned out, stains on the carpet, cracked tile, and dead ants in the family room. My family enjoyed the pool, and none of the needed changes made us dislike our stay. The property manager (Christine) is incredibly helpful and kind.
Manager response:
Thanks for sharing your feedback with us, Kelli. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay, and appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will pass your comments along to our local operations manager to address the burned-out lights, cracked tile, and carpet. We will also ensure that pest control treatments are completed to prevent any further concerns. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to host you again!

We loved the beauty of the home and enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The location was convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and easy drive to Ft. Meyers Beach and Sanibel. There were a few questions and problems we encountered but the rental staff was timely in their response to my questions. Pay attention to what is provided and what you must purchase yourself.

This was a comfortable space and bed configuration for our group of 10 adults and 1 kid. As others mentioned, the home still needs some repairs as of Dec ‘21. Kitchen was not as well stocked with cookware as we expected. Had some communication issues with the management. I’d say our stay was about average; not bad, but not spectacular either.
Manager response:
Hello Theresa! Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, as we are thrilled to learn you enjoyed the space. We are sorry for any inconvenience with the kitchenware. We suggest bringing your favorite roasting dish or small appliance that you can’t do without. Our 24/7 guest service number is available for any questions before your arrival to ensure you have the best stay. We will pass your comments to our local manager for review and updates. Thank you!

Beautiful home in a great location. Easily fit our group of 11. Was very clean BUT needs a little “love” - cracked tile in kitchen and some pet stains on bedroom carpet.
Manager response:
Hi, Ann! Thank you so much for staying with us. The property manager has noted the tiles and stains and is planning on getting them addressed when possible. We hope to see you again!

Very beautiful property in a very private and quiet location. Management was very helpful and responsive. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My staff of 11 people traveled to this home for a conference and the home was a perfect fit for us. The space was clean, well laid out, most guests said their beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed all of the amenities and hope to stay here in the future (as long as our staff doesn’t grow). This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The home suited our purposes, the floorplan was spacious, the outdoor living space was great and enjoyed by everyone. The furniture was in good shape, comfy and clean. What we DID notice was the home needed a lot of TLC in many areas. A handyman could spend a good couple of days fixing/repairing/replacing little things like bathroom doors that don`t lock, missing knobs on the outdoor kitchen grill, loose knobs on several cabinets, kitchen sink undermount that is dropping, unsightly worn out bench at front entry (rotten wood) sunken seats on woven lanai chairs, burned out lightbulbs, freezer icemaker did not work, large tile pieces missing around hot tub, the cage and screen on lanai was green from mold, we covered the huge crack at kitchen pantry area so no one would cut their feet on the sharp piece of raised tile. Although the home was cleaned great, we spotted no less than 4 very large palmetto bug roaches scurrying around the kitchen area. Despite the issues, we were able to adjust and enjoy ourselves, friends and family, however, I would not return nor recommend this property in its current condition. Some TLC would bring you 5 stars!

Absolutely an excellent vacation home! Had so much more room than I thought. Super clean, easy instructions. Quiet area but close to everything. Beds were comfy. We will be staying here again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

When we arrived we were greeted by 4 empty overturned trash cans at the driveway entrance. Home is beautiful but in much need of some TLC. Walls were scuffed, furniture was pretty beat up and worn. Patio furniture was in bad shape - afraid to sit on a few of the chairs. Weeds growing thru cracks in the patio stones. Pool/patio area moldy in spots-could use a power wash. A few pool steps were steep making it difficult to get out of the pool for some of the older ones in our group- need to have a railing to to aid those who need assistance. TV very difficult to figure out. Garage door difficult to open-had to push hard on the button and sometimes still wouldn`t open. Cleaning service showed up 15 mins before we left and walked right in the front door without even checking to see if it was safe to enter. Rusted, bent leg card table by the pool area-not sure what that was for but looked creepy. Difficult to find the house at night-very dark in that area and no street lights-need reflector or something to indicate where the driveway is. We noticed cobwebs on light fixture over kitchen table and ceiling in dinner room. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Our family had a great several days at Fry Ranch enjoying both indoors as well as the pool. The layout was really great with plenty of space. The kitchen was advertised as gourmet but we found it lacking in a number of small ways that didn`t seem to match how it was promoted. The corporate property management folks responded quickly when contacted but usually couldn`t really help and didn`t know basic information. The local team was a great help with 2 or three things and I was grateful for her attentiveness. We`ve used AirBnb and VRBO and TurnKey is quite similar. The corporate management aspect was not as capable as a private owner. All in all, in spite of these few things, we would definitely return again as we had a fantastic time.

Perfect fit the needs of three separate families. Plenty of seating; the den was ideal. The pool was delightful. The kitchen was large enough for multiple people to be preparing food at the same time. It was really great overall.

After a week though, a few suggestions:
1. Swap out the formal dining room for a farm table and benches/smaller chairs to make a puzzle/game room in addition to extra dining space (even with 9 people we didn`t use that room for dining).
2. Supply at least one bottle of 409/anti-bacterial cleaning solution or include that in `what to buy/bring`.
3. Additional skillets would be nice as there wasn`t one to cook something small, for example, 2 lbs of beef. There was one tiny skillet and that was it. Since the house sleeps up to 13 people, the pots and pans options weren`t big enough to cook for that many people.
4. The pool needs a pool skimmer net because after a week, the little bugs needed to go! (There was a pole but no net attached).

All that being said, I would go back again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Lovely home away from home. A few minor items that need attention, but nothing that affected the time we had. We would book again if the opportunity presents itself. Good communication, especially in regards to the hurricane looming over Florida. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Diego r. Jun 2021
Overall I`d say good but given it is a Marriott property, I was disappointed in a few broken/damaged items found on the property. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Sue r. May 2021
Beautiful, spacious, comfortable property. Perfect for our large family of 11. Close to restaurants, retail stores and beach. Would definitely recommend. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Chris i. Apr 2021
Our group had a fantastic time staying in this home for a long weekend! The house is beautiful, the pool was great, and we could not have asked for anything more. Would recommend to anyone. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lynn f. Mar 2021
The house was wonderful. We really enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. My only recommendation would be to upgrade the living room sofa and the beds in smaller rooms. The entire house was very clean. We would definitely stay here again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Frank b. Dec 2020
This house is amazing! Super spacious, beautiful scenery and amazing layout. We loved everything about the house. Christine was quick in her responses to any questions we had and was super friendly and took time to explain to us everything we needed to know about the property. I would definitely rent this place again and would definitely use TurnKey in the future!
