We loved staying on the water in Rio Vista. Our favorite thing to do was sit in the backyard and watch the boats go by. We were close to everything we needed - Las Olas, the beach, the grocery store and more.

This is a great house and location. Our family of 5 likes it so much, that it was our second time there in 9 months. The location is outstanding with beautiful homes and boats all around you. Also there are many great restaurants and beaches within a 10-15 min drive. The house itself is very nice and the pool is outstanding. We spent many hours each day swimming and watching the boats drive by. Now to the negative: this house is still very nice, but I’m concerned it isn’t getting the care it deserves to maintain it. In the 9 months since we were last there, little things here and there were broken (overhead light cover in master, curtain in guest room, towel holder in bathroom). Also the sliding patio door tracks were extremely dirty and the outside of those patio windows didn’t seem like they had been washed in a while. This is being nit picky and didn’t take away from enjoying the house. However, concern on these things being compounded and what it could be like in a year or two when we come back.

This was a great house for our family of 5 (3 kids, ages 6-9). Wonderful location with incredible homes and boats all around. The pool and hot tub kept us all happy along with all the out door seating. Plenty of great restaurants within an easy drive. Would recommend The Foxy Brown and 925 Nuevo Cubano. Only issue is the hot tub and pool directions are tough when you get to all the equipment, but got it figured out.

Kris P. Nov 2020
The house was beautiful and the location was amazing. It started with outdated instructions to turn on tool and spa. I’m sure the homeowner doesn’t want people fiddling with knobs and levers risking ruining the new setup. Halfway through cooking dinner the AC stopped working and no one bothered to respond or reach out until TWO days later. The only reason I knew they were there was because I came back from having to make alternative stays for myself and guests for the two nights without AC to clean the house and there was an AC van outside. The food disposal didn’t work, the ice machine didn’t work, and there were no cleaning products. Turnkey has offered me a quarter of ones nights stay as a refund. This is unacceptable. I should get a credit or refund for the Two nights we could not use the house! The neighbor apparently does NOT like that the house is rented out and has a reputation of making vacationers lives miserable. He called the police on us starting before 9pm and last at 1:30 am. The first three times they apologized and told of us his reputation and ******* behavior. And the last officer harassed us until 4:30am until I could finally leave and find other accommodations for the HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE AND HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE TO ACCOMMODATE FOR THEIR PROBLEMS.

This was a great experience! We really enjoyed the property - it was close to everything we wanted to explore like Las Olas and boating up and down the intracoastal. There were 4 of us, two couples, and it was perfect. Loved having a home and we were able to cook and enjoy a few restaurants. The property is spotless and the pool was nice too. We went in July so no need for the hot tub - when it’s that warm it’s a challenge to keep the pool cooled off. Liked that someone came and did a pool clean up mid-week. We didn’t even realize it and suddenly the pool was clean of any debris like leaves that had blown in over a few days. Overall great stay! Highly recommend for a small group.

Turnkey was highly disappointing, especially the local turnkey rep Martin. The hot tub was not working when we got there, he sent someone the next day he was clueless and said someone would come Monday. No one came Monday and if not for me texting the main turnkey people probably would not have been fixed, but frustrating that I had to test every 3 hours to make sure it got fixed. Martin never got back to me. Also was not given wifi information either.
Location: Awesome 10 mins from everywhere but you felt all alone, 13 mins from the Fort Lauderdale airport
Backyard pool and hot tub when working, and cover deck: Awesome
kitchen: awesome, Had kurieg coffee maker, blender for drinks and all the pots and pans needed.
Bedrooms and Bathroom: Great, they are small and not enough space for luggage and stuff
Living room and TV: Great, big and comfortable living room not a lot of TV channels but I used my iPad to connect to HDMI and stream movies at night
Clean: very clean the cleaning person Kat did a great job.
In short I would rent the house, If I have to use turnkey again, I might look elsewhere. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house was amazing!! Although not huge it had everything you needed and was close to everything!! The appliances and furniture were very great and functional! The pool is salt water which is an amazing extra touch! The only small negatives were the pool and hot tub instructions could be a little more clear we couldn`t figure out how to turn on the heat in the hot tub and we didn`t want to even try touching the pool hardware because we didn`t see anything obvious, but its Florida so the pool and hot tub were still plenty warm! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay we would definitely recommend to friends and family! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This property was well appointed, gorgeous and close to shops and restaurants. The perfect place for a family. We had breakfast on the loggia and Seamus til the wee hours. Would definitely stay here again This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jena S. Apr 2019
Unfortunately there was a ton of construction on the street. Trucks were constantly parked on the road and of course the construction noise. I didn’t want to complain because it’s not really the renters fault, but then we got a complaint against us for noise? When there was a party down the street, construction noise, landscaping noise/and they were blaring music. When I responded nothing was done to accommodate me, no offered discount or refund which would have been the professional service after all the inconveniences. Also they’re in desperate need of bug control, especially for roaches and red ants.
The house is in great shape overall, great furnishings, minor wear and tears. Great safe location. Just don’t appreciate being accused of noise when the whole street was 10 times louder than us. And don’t care to be living with bugs. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The home was very nice and we had a great vacation despite everything we found when we first arrived: There were many things wrong 1.there was an open bottle of wine left above the microwave in a cabinet, 2.the front door was unlocked when we arrived, 3.there were many ants in the kitchen and bedroom with the bunk beds, 4.there was construction dust on the patio and furniture from the never-ending construction (that began promptly at 9 every day- even saturday), 5.the lights in the fan in one bedroom didn`t work, 6.there was dog hair and lint and stains on the couches, 7.the pool had not been cleaned, and 8.the kitchen sink disposal did not work.

Don`t rent from Turnkey ever!!
The pool was 104 degrees when we arrived. They told me for 3 days that someone would come and look at it. No one ever did and Turnkey never called me. I had to call them at least 12 times. It was as if i was bothering them. Whole trip ruined as it wad almost 100 degrees outside and the pool was 104. I also had to fight to get a one night refund approved. They should have refunded the entire stay!They would never disclose the name of or let me speak with a supervisor. Bad business.

Had an excellent time in this rental for our family vacation. The location is surrounded by gorgeous homes. When we arrived there was broken glass under the outdoor table and some beer cans scattered along the home. The rental company came and cleaned it up right away. They explained that the renters prior to us had been partying and left a mess. We were pleased with the response we got. We hope to go back next year. Would highly recommend.

Jocelyn C. Apr 2018
The home was immaculate and had everything we needed. The construction next door was not a huge issue. Myself and 5 of my girlfriends came down for the Wine and Food Festival and we felt so relaxed. We had morning yoga right on the water. The only disappointment was that we were unable to get a late checkout. A lot of us were flying out and had nowhere else to go.

Kelley R. Mar 2018
Would have been really nice to know the house next door was being built! Hammering, drilling, gawking construction workers all within feet ALL DAY EVERY DAY! They’ve known about this for months & yet we couldn’t have been notified at the least! Jackie at Turnkey was juvenile & incredibly unprofessional. Total shame because the house itself was beautifully decorated, new, clean, in a great area with a wonderful pool & view. Would have been a perfect 10 had it not been for Jackie’s rudeness & the horrendous construction next door.

Jessica J. Mar 2018
This home is beautifully redone. The back patio pool is gorgeous. The view is also amazing. What we weren`t told was that the house next door is being built just 10 ft from the house. The retaining wall is only ankle high and there is no fence or landscaping to separate the homes. We had no privacy and spent three days listening to bakchoe`s beeping and jackhammers. Not the relaxing vacation we came down for. The workers were literately 10-20ft from our patio in which they could look right at us. The construction was never disclosed and I was very disappointing that our vacation was ruined. We couldn`t hear each other talk during the day outside. Such a shame because the home is in a very beautiful location and setting. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were so pleased with our first time renting a home with VRBO. It was represented well in the photos, it was just like the photos we looked at. The home was centrally located to shops, eating, and the beach. The layout of the home was perfect for our family. It was comfortable, clean, and very well maintained. We would rent this home again if our plans take us to the Fort Lauderdale area. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

What a beautiful home! Newly renovated and squeeky clean. Wonderful pool, hot tub and patio area with a gorgeous canal view! Located within minutes of all that Fort Lauderdale has to offer, in an area of spectacular multi million dollar homes!

Shaunna D. Dec 2017
Wow. This property is amazing. We literally didn’t leave for much of the 7 days. The pool area is everything and more. The House was spotless and had everything you might need.

Only complaints were: broken toaster, only coffee option was a Keurig (which when you have more than 2 coffee drinkers can be frustrating!), garbage and recycling bins were completely full when we arrived and garbage wasn’t expected again for 1 week. This is probably the fault of previous renters not putting the garbage out for pick up, not fault of property owner.

Overall this place is amazing! Slept 5 adults and 2 children comfortably. Probably wouldn’t do more than that given the size of the space, we were totally comfortable though! This home is located in a very safe neighborhood, surrounded by $xxM properties. Neighbors were very friendly! Groceries and restaurants were within 1.5miles, beach 4 miles. Any place you could want to go is less than a $10 Uber away! No need for a rental car here! Would love to come back again.

Joel S. Dec 2017
The house itself is nice, but there were major issues and a ruined week.

1. Cable and internet out for 2 days due to owner`s failure to pay the bill. Numerous hours and phone calls invested.

2. The city turned off the water one morning due to owner`s failure to bay the bill. We were without water for an entire day.

3. Pool - Heater not hooked up, freezing all week.

4. Spa - non operational due to heat and the owner`s failure to hook up the switch that turns it on - would have been unusable anyway due to lack of a heater. Never fixed.

5. Barbecue had no propane tank and heavily rusted grills. Replaced on day 2.

Turnkey refunded the money, but the week was a loss. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
