South Puget Sound Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local South Puget Sound team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, TurnKey has enhanced its already extensive home cleaning standards and processes to further sanitize homes between each stay for our guests and owners. All TurnKey properties are equipped with our patented GuestWorks® cleaning system and verification technology, requiring professional housekeepers to follow a stringent set of cleaning standards, customized for each home, and confirm their use of COVID-19 fighting products, as identified by the Center for Biocide Chemistries. We have also emphasized effective hygiene practices and safety recommendations for our employees and housekeeping network in line with CDC guidelines. In addition, we have initiated the TurnKey Cares Relief Housing Program, offering thousands of homes for medical personnel and first-responders at complimentary or significantly discounted rates while they perform critical services to fight COVID-19.
