TurnKey Vacation Rentals Wins 2019 Gold and Silver Magellan Awards for Hospitality

TurnKey is the only vacation rental company to win four Travel Weekly Magellan Awards for hospitality over the past three years.

TurnKey Vacation Rentals, Inc., a leading national vacation rental property manager for luxury and premier homes, was recently honored with two 2019 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards for outstanding hospitality. TurnKey has now received four Magellan Awards over three consecutive years, including the following awards for 2019:

Gold: Hospitality - Overall-Vacation Rentals/Villas/Time Share
Silver: Hospitality - Overall-Share Economy

“We’re honored to again be included among the winners of this year’s Travel Weekly’s Magellan Awards,” Co-founder and CEO John Banczak said. “These awards – including our first-ever Gold – are validation of the dedication our team has to deliver exceptional experiences for our owners and guests, treat our partners with respect and represent our industry with pride.”

The Travel Weekly Magellan Awards recognize the best companies across the spectrum of travel industry segments, including: Hospitality, Travel Destinations, Cruise Lines, Online Travel Services, Airlines and Airports, Travel Agents and Agencies, Tour Operators and Ground Transportation. A panel of travel industry experts serve as judges for the Magellan Awards and highlight outstanding professionals in a diverse array of categories and specialties.

Founded in 2013, TurnKey pioneered a new model for scaling vacation rental hospitality in top destinations across the U.S., leveraging technology and expert, local teams to deliver consistent experiences in one-of-a-kind homes. Key to that delivery is TurnKey FieldSync, the industry’s first technology platform for remote, end-to-end facilitation of vacation home management, from scheduling and validating housekeeping jobs for every stay, to automatically generating time-coded digital lock codes for all guests.

In 2019, TurnKey hosted its one millionth guest, and was also named a select partner in the launch of Homes & Villas by Marriott International.
