This is a good beach house. It was absolutely clean; t`s close to the water, but far enough up the (exclusive) driveway that there`s no traffic noise. The layout is excellent - we brought four children ages 11-13 and the boys had one bunk room, the girls another. My only complaints are (1) the combination lock was broken when we arrived after dark); and (2) cookware is limited (bring your own paring knife and whisk), as are basic condiments (like pepper and tabasco). I`d rent it again, and probably will. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Loved staying here, and looking forward to coming back. Inside of house is modern, open and roomy, and exceptionally clean. They even had new, fluffy bath towels! The house is private and nicely tucked away, but has excellent beach access. I can`t say enough good things about this house.

This is our 3rd time staying at this house. The house is in a wonderful location, just a short walk to the beach. It’s a great house to stay at if you have kids.
I would say that since our last visit the house condition has gone down. If you like to cook your meals while on vacation this probably is not the best house for you.
On our stay the outside grill had no propane. There were two tanks, but both were empty. The door to the oven will not stay shut all the way and when you open it, it falls to the ground very quickly. I feel that for the daily price of this rental the appliances need to be upgraded. We always cook on our trip to save money, and so this was very disappointing for us.
We also noticed that the overall cleanliness of the house had gone down from our other visits. The house definitely needs a deep clean.
The bed in the master bedroom is very very firm. My husband had to sleep on the couch because it hurt his back.
Be carful on the stairs outside, they seem shorter than your typical steps. I actually fell on our last day there trying to walk down them.
Overall this is a perfect house if you are wanting a great location but are not that concerned with cooking meals. I would be hesitant to return for a 4th visit unless I knew some things had been fixed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had 8 `adults` staying here for 3 nights and it was PERFECT! The location can`t be beat, literally 60 steps to the beach! Plenty of space, large bathrooms. The living area was great for movies! We were all able to pile on the huge couch and watch A Perfect Storm! I don`t want to go back to the beach unless it`s in this house! Oh, and great service! Not only was it clean and stocked with EVERYTHING you could need (toiletries, kitchen supplies, etc) but we needed assistance during the stay and they were very responsive and helpful. 10/10 would recommend!

From booking to the end of the stay, Turnkey was absolutely terrible. We tried to cancel this booking because of Covid and were forced into a re-book (still in the midst of a pandemic) a year later. Turnkey would not refund our money. (Complaints were filed with BBB and AG’s office). This property has one thing going for it- location. Right on the beach. Unfortunately- I can’t speak well of much else. It is clearly “a rental”- lack of amenities- we wanted to cook our meals (pandemic not ideal for dining out) but the kitchen is really lacking and not very clean. The grill looks like it is about to collapse. Old bathrooms- need to be updated, old sandy furniture and beds. Even the view is obscured by worn out lattice that has been thrown up around the deck. This property could be something incredible. The owners need a new cleaning company and need to ditch Turnkey. Even if they can’t afford to update- the location is so great that for a lower nightly rate (with better cleaning and rental company) this place could be an affordable stay right on the beach. Turnkey was really great and communicating by text during the stay but really terrible at getting anything done. Lots of apologies and promises and words to make it look like they cared and were doing something but it was all words. The windows were so dirty when we arrived for our 5 night stay that you couldn’t see the ocean. It took 3 days for someone to clean them and then they just cleaned those on one side of the house. We asked for kitchen towels and dish clothes- those came several days into our stay after multiple requests. Bath towels were badly stained. No beach towels or beach anything provided. We had ants in the kitchen..... I hope the homeowners can turn this around- it really has a lot of potential. Or at least ditch Turnkey and the cleaning service and lower the price.

A few days in this ideally located home helped us begin our post covid “normal” Right on the beach we were able to run back if we needed something while we were set up on the beach. The house was clean,well maintained and comfortable. Everything you could ask for in Port A! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

What a great house. We have a great spring break with the kids in this well furnished and updated older home. Clean and cozy with all the things you would need for a nice stay. Highly recommend this house for a family getaway. The team at Turnkey were very helpful and on top of it all. Will be back for sure This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Was great except door lock did not work. Call about it and were given key info for backdoor. No other issues. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

3 adults and 4 children stayed for a long weekend. Our family had a great time. The house was comfortable, and the kitchen has everything required to cook all of your meals. The house has a fun, beachy feel, and was so comfortable. Felt like our home away from home! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This property was perfect for our family! It was clean, newly renovated, necessary kitchen utensils and cookware, great view and most importantly on the beach with a great view! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a wonderful 4 days at this one of a kind beautiful beach house just steps from the beach. It was very clean, and I would definitely stay there again. Very private. There was an abundance of towels and our bed was super comfortable and clean. Not having the house stocked with spices is a good idea these days for sanitary reasons. Appliances all worked and the house was in good repair. We loved the bird watching opportunitIes in the area. Thank you!

Stayed at this beautiful house for 6 days for my birthday with another couple. Right in the beach....couldn’t get now closer! Very spacious and everything was clean and new! The Property manager was sweet, she had to come and unlock the bedroom door , but came right away no problems at all. We will be staying there again!!
