Terms

The Property Manager (hereafter referred to as "we", "us", or "our") provides rental management services on behalf of homeowners ("Owners") who rent their properties (including the associated fixtures and furnishings)(the “Home”) to guests (the "Guest" or "you") seeking accommodations on a short term or long term basis (collectively, the “Services”). We are the Owner's property manager and authorized agent, who will perform the Services related to your reservation. By using the Home and Services, you agree to comply with and be legally bound by the terms and conditions of this guest agreement (the "Agreement"). This Agreement only applies to short term rentals and not long term rentals, which will be governed by the specific terms of your lease agreement with us.

1. Policies: Please treat our Owner's Home with the care you would at your own home and abide by following policies:

*Behave as you would in any home in which you live, with respect for property and neighbors.
*Unless otherwise stated in the Home listing, you must be over the age of 25.
*You will be an occupant of the unit during the entire reserved period and other occupants of the Home during your stay will be family members, friends, responsible adults or children under direct adult supervision.
*Do not exceed the maximum occupancy of the Home.
*No parties, noise that can be heard beyond the home lot line or in adjacent units, or any illegal activity may occur at the Home.
*No pets are allowed unless otherwise noted for specific properties and where you have paid a pet fee in connection with your booking in advance of your reservation.
*No smoking is allowed in or around any Home.
*Check-in time is 3pm and check-out time is 10am - we will notify you via email in advance if early check-in or late check-out will be available.
*Please use common courtesy at the home by keeping it clean, reporting any problems or damages, washing dishes as used, taking garbage to the outside bins, leaving towels in the bathrooms and sheets in the bedrooms, and not re-arranging furniture.

2. Cleaning: Each home will be cleaned and inspected by third-party cleaning contractors after your departure. We ask you to help us enable the cleaning crews as much as possible. They will appreciate simple things like leaving the home tidy, running the dishwasher, starting to wash the towels, and taking out the trash.

3. Swimming Pools, Hot Tubs, or Beach: If the home that you have reserved includes a pool or hot tub, or is on a beach, these can all be obviously dangerous. Guests should observe and adhere to all rules and policies as posted at the home and supervise all children at all times. Lifeguards are not provided. Decks and patios can be slippery when wet and can result in injury to anyone who is not careful. Guest accept and assumes all risks involved in or related to the use of a pool, hot tub, beach and deck/patio areas.

4. Home Damage Waiver: Each guest will be offered an optional Damage Waiver that protects you against unintended damage done to the Property. This is not insurance, and the Damage Waiver does not apply to intentional damage done by the Guest or your guests, or excessive wear and tear due to parties, smoking, pets or otherwise, or additional cleaning charges due to stains or spills, or fines incurred by the police or HOA due to noise, excessive trash or parking, or damage over the purchased amounts of either $3,000 or $5,000. If Tenant does not wish to purchase this Damage Waiver, a security deposit of $3,000, $5,000, or greater depending on Property will be required at the time of booking. If a Home requires an additional security deposit, we will explain this to you before confirming a reservation. Guest acknowledges that any damage or fines not covered by the Damage Waiver or above the amount of any security deposit can be charged to Guest (and Guest’s card on file). The Damage Waiver can be purchased up to the day prior to your reservation but not after it has started. You do not have to purchase this Damage Waiver. Please contact the Property Manager directly at if you do not wish to purchase the Damage Waiver.

5. Excessive Wear and Tear, Noise and Occupancy: If excessive wear and tear is found for the Home, or additional cleaning is necessary due to spills, trash left on site, stains to furniture, carpeting, linens, paint, wallpaper, or flooring, Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest for additional fees. Tenant will be provided with a receipt for any additional fees incurred upon request or as required by local laws or regulations. If at any time the maximum number of the Home’s occupants is exceeded or if we receive information about excessive noise, the Property Manager has the right to evict Guest and all occupants immediately and to charge Guest a minimum service fee of $250 with no refund for the balance of the remaining reservation. If any sign of smoking is discovered Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest an additional minimum $500 cleaning fee. Unless the reservation for the Home specifically allows a pet, if any sign of a pet is discovered, then Guest authorizes the Property Manager to charge Guest an additional minimum $500 cleaning fee. The Property Manager will return any balance of a security deposit to Guest, less any charges or amounts owed by Guest, within fourteen (14) days after the end of the reservation or as otherwise required by local laws or regulations. Any charges owed by Guest may be charged by the Property Manager to Guest’s card on file in addition to seeking any relief provided by law.

6. Maintenance and Access: We have the right to enter the home at any time during guest stay and we will diligently attempt to address maintenance issues as they occur. This is an associated risk of renting a single family residence or condo. If a maintenance issue occurs that cannot be fixed in a reasonable amount of time, and significantly affects your stay; we reserve the right to refund at our discretion or offer to relocate you to another home.

Guest is responsible for replacing stocked items as they are consumed. If there is a special type of item you are accustomed to using please provide for those items by bringing them with you. Extra towels are always recommended for homes on the beach, or with a pool or hot tub.

Balcony Views Can't Be Beat The best thing about this property is the location! When they say "short walk to the beach" they mean it. The balconies provided excellent views of the gulf along with a nice breeze. Just steps out the door and past the pool is the short boardwalk to the beach. <br/>The house has great beachy decor and was generally clean. I've seen people write reviews complaining about sand on the floor, but if you're staying at a house on the beach, there's going to be sand! The floors were clean despite the fact that there is residual sand. Corner cobwebs and dust around the vents could be cleaned up, but it was very tidy otherwise.<br/>After seeing the photos of the white couches, I was thrilled to see the cute, beachy covers on the couch! Very family-friendly and I didn't have to worry so much that we would mess up the pretty white couches with our sandy selves.<br/>The kitchen is stocked with plenty of cookware for people like me who like to prepare meals. <br/>We did run into a major plumbing problem upon arrival and the property management company was very responsive and professional. They offered to move us while we waited for the repair to happen, but we liked the location and the house enough, we choose to stay.<br/>I would recommend this location and TurnKey properties to others. We will seek them out on our next family trip.

Nice house and good location The house is nice and very well located. It has everything you need but a few things could be fixed/improved such as the sliding windows or the oven handle. We loved the view and the very short walk to the beach. If like us you don't like cars on the beach, you can drive a couple of miles and go to Mustang State Park. My only negative point is that when we arrived there was a full load of linen in the dryer and another one in the washer still wet. The floor also felt sandy. Not sure what happened about the cleaning and house preparation. All in all, we liked the house and would recommend it.

Great experience The location and easy access to the beach were perfect, plus the house was very nicely decorated and had wonderful views. There were a few minor maintenance issues, but nothing significant or atypical to beach properties. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice place, but needs some maintenance Stayed here with my wife and 4 kids and my 80 year old mother-in-law. The place fit us perfectly. Great views and short walk to the pool and beach. Kitchen was fully stocked (except for a can opener!) and lots of towels and blankets were provided. A couple of items of note...there are a lot of stairs and an elderly person will have quite a task getting up and down. The house is in need of some maintenance - the sliding glass door was barely able to be opened and the master drain was almost completely clogged. One other note - it&#x2019;s about a 15 minute drive to any stores (not a big deal, but just nice to know). Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and the views were great.

Great location and beautiful view This house is in an excellent location and has a great unobstructed view of the dunes and the beach. The first floor deck is shaded and accommodates a good number of folks. However, the house itself is a bit shabby and in need of some repair work. The sliding glass door to the first floor deck is very difficult to open/close and the locking mechanism is broken. There are numerous overhead light fixtures that do not work and the fixture over the dining table is plastic and looks like it was chewed up by Godzilla. The bi-fold doors to the first floor bedroom do not close properly and make it difficult to enter/leave that room. There was only a small part of a roll of paper towels left for us and we were unable to find any refills, so we had to go buy more. Also, the procedures for checkout suggested that we start a load of towels, but there was no laundry detergent. All in all, other than the location, we found this house to be a disappointment.

Can be Awesome Nice beach access, the view of the ocean was great. The home can be awesome but needs some easy fixes: there were roach droppings all over the kitchen, killed several. The house needs a real good clean down and treatment to fix the problem. Turnkey was very apologetic but did nothing. A repair man showed up with no notice to fix the dishwasher and stove. The kids were napping and he wanted to use a grinder to grind off some bolts. We refused and he left <br/>Turnkey key again was apologetic but did nothing. This can be a awesome rental if the house is better cleaned and the roaches are felt with. Also notice of repairs should be given before they arrive.

Beach Townhouse Rental Very Nice

highly disappointed we arrived to find our rental highly toxic fumes. we thought it was bug extermination but there were also very large roaches running around. i called turnkey they left me on hold for 30 minutes trying to find my reservation. it was late so we had to spend the night. we opened doors/windows/ turned up AC but the fumes were very strong. the next morning we saw that all the AC vents had black mold and the AC filter was dirty. i called turnkey again early and a local rep called me back and put us in another unit. this was better but the downstairs bedroom had the same issue. so 3 of us slept better but the 4th had to endure the same smells. the local rep said that the units had not been extermination recently so we all determined it was mildew/mold. this is unacceptable in the price range we were in. we paid top dollar for a unit on the beach (first unit we rented) and ended up further from the beach with no view. i will not rent again. although we were relocated the issue still remained and when i called the local rep after leaving she told me that it was determined by inspection that the units were fine. normally i would not give a bad review unless the agency did not try to compensate fully. we had hopes of a beautiful rental on the beach with a spectacular view and this is what we paid for. we ended up several blocks away with no view and one bedroom still smelling like mildew. it seems unreasonable to expect people to stay in these units if there is a mold problem.

Too Early Checkout Overall all was fine. Upon checkin we had to deal with fine gritty sand on floors and all over kitchen. TurnKey was prompt to answer and said they would refund our cleaning fee. While we were cleaning kitchen we discovered water all over floor at freezer. Seems the seal on drawer freezer does not work. It looked like Alaska inside freezer. TurnKey offered to send someone over, but when we explained problem and told them it would not be a quick fix, they opted (per our suggestion) to check it out after we left. We got tired of calling: downstairs toilet took forever to refill (new float possibly?) We think the sand was sawdust from the bunk beds they had been making in the downstairs bedroom. We were told no on checking out at 11 or 12. Who ever heard of a 10 AM checkout! Yes, we would rent again the place was really cute and met our needs. Later checkout would be nice.

Nice stay, but could use some pest control Beautiful home and view. The beach felt nearly private as there were absolutely no crowds near the private boardwalk. Unfortunately, it had just rained before our arrival and the sand dunes have an unusual amount of brush which attracted enormous mosquitos. Be sure to bring mosquito repellent and citronella candles if you want to enjoy the patio. The dunes also apparently are home to rattlesnakes as signs are posted so be careful while on the ground level as this property is right in front of the dunes (of course this is how you have the amazing view). Of course dunes are needed to prevent flooding, but I think if they can cut down the amount of brush or use pesticides if possible it may decrease the mosquitos and eliminate rattlesnakes. This is of course something the entire Lost Colony complex would need to look into. Also, there is no access to the garage so there is no place to put your trash out of view. It would be nice if the owner could provide a space to place trash. Otherwise, nice experience and beach in comparison to Galveston and Crystal beach (much cleaner and clearer water).

Here’s what we loved about the vacation property:<br/>—Deck furniture was very comfortable<br/>—Beach view/access was great<br/>—Upstair bedrooms were very comfortable<br/>—Appreciated all the extra towels <br/>—Appreciated that home was bug free (trust me, an important item when visiting the coast!)

Peaceful getaway The location of this property was perfect we were just steps from the beach, the views were great. The house was clean for the most part however there were some things that were missed such as dried food on pans, cobwebs and the patio string lights didn't work. The sleeping arrangements were great with four kids. Pool was a nice alternative to the beach.

Beach trip Great house, it was clean and the views from this home are fabulous. You can walk to the beach in a few minutes which was awesome. We had to leave a day early due to the Hurricane. Better to be safe. Prayers for Port Aransas at this time. It breaks my heart seeing all the pics after the hurricane hit. I hope this awesome town bounces back.

Great winter beach stay! We had a wonderful time even though the weather was cooler than expected. Had the beach to ourselves and took long beach walks every day. Shell hunting was great! Texas State Aquarium and South Texas Art Museum and USS Lexington were fun outings. The house has great gulf views from master suite, living room and two decks. The tablet computer with all the unit and local area information is a nice touch. We plan to return in a warmer season one day.

Great location Lots of updates needed in this house. Pictures are deceiving as far as how large the space appears. Living/dining area is cramped with the large table. The kitchen is nice just beware the dishwasher doesn’t clean well and the door slams open as it’s wore out. The master bedroom bed is old. When you sit on it the headboard legs comes off the ground. The entire house needs new paint. Lots of places have black or chipped or crayon markings. It made it dirty looking. Also if you need wash rags for bathing bring your own. There are 3 in the entire house. <br/>The views are great and the location to the beach is wonderful. Other than needing some tlc the house is nice. The balconies are great to sit on and see the ocean. Very quiet neighborhood.

Cinco de Mayo at Port A! This home was perfect for a romantic getaway for my husband and me. No work, no family, no friends, no worries! The beach views are perfect. A sign near the kitchen says, "Make a splash. Rock the boat. Seas the day." The kitchen is well equipped, but there is no Keurig. Don't be fooled - there is an icemaker on the top freezer rack that I didn't see initially. The cloth couches in the den and the bottoms of the drapes in the master bedroom show expected soiling. The master bath is fantastic. There is a washer/dryer. There is private WiFi. There is no garage access, but driveway parking was fine for us, and there is an "overflow" lot nearby. Initial amenities are provided. We enjoyed complimentary early check in and late checkout. We will definitely return!

Our First Beach House Family Vacation! Lost Colony 2 was just what we wanted it to be as far as location and accessibility to the beach. We were able to sit on the upper deck and enjoy the sights and sounds of God's magnificent creation of the beautiful ocean waves and see the beach with unobstructed views. 3 bedrooms and 3 baths were perfect for our family of 7. However, we did find when we arrived, that the beach house was in the middle of an updating project. Although clean and functional except for the oven,(there had previously been a spill in the oven and was covered up with foil and smoked when we turned it on), the wooden stairs were not finished, there were missing vents, missing light fixtures, new windows and doors that had been installed and had not been cleaned, and a few doors on new cabinets had not been installed and cabinets in one bedroom was not finished. On the outside, there was no shower to wash off the sand from the beach nor hooks to hang wet suits. We also did not have a trash receptacle outside to put our trash so it had to be hauled to the dumpster down by the highway. We were more than disappointed that we paid full price for the high season to another rental company and didn't get any consideration for a price cut considering the house was not in tiptop condition. I imagine it will be quite beautiful when renovations are complete so I would consider staying there again as it was quite functional but pricy for it to be so in an unfinished state. While on the island, we enjoyed a golf cart ride on the beaches of Port A, eating at Snoopy's and Scoopy's on Padra Island and at Fin's in Port A. The process of checking in and out was very easy and well managed through email. We made some wonderful family memories while there and are thankful that God provided for our family to be able to enjoy time together. To God be the Glory! John 3:16

Much better than a hotel Rental/checkin process with Turnkey was seamless. Love their efficient automated system. The house itself was lovely, with everything you could need in the kitchen & plenty of linens. Much better than the photos. ( We were staying here while working in Corpus Christi) As other reviewers have mentioned, the bed descriptions are inaccurate. My only complaint is with Turnkey (Liz).Upon entering the house we were hit in the face with a strong oil based odor that permeated the entire house. I am not particularly sensitive to odors but this was excessive. after spending the first night, I had to leave work due to severe headache and nausea. Upon calling Turnkey, Liz sent maintenance over right away. I was told it was possibly something spilled in the garage (as we did not have access) he explained it could be the creosote buildup on the exposed pilings that the house sits on in the garage. Liz had no comparable properties to move us and offered to pay for 1 nt hotel stay until we found another place (what about the other 4 nts we were staying, no refund ??) she offered no other compensation, I tried in a reasonable manner but was responded to extremely rudely. My complaint isn't actually about no compensation for our discomfort but more about honesty and respectful treatment to a real dilemma. Oddly, that evening, we opened all the doors, turned the ceiling fans on high and burned several candles and by the next day, the smell had been reduced by about 50%. as did any ill 's a bit scary to think what toxic odors we were breathing given the physical effects. Makes me wonder what the maintenance man actually found in the garage?? <br/>Wish we would have followed him into it to see for ourselves! All in all, I would rent this home again as well as rent from Turnkey. Just beware and take a scented candle with you!<br/>Thank you most of all to the owners from providing a lovely home that made our tiring days at work a pleasure to come home instead of a hotel.

Beautiful home and view. The beach felt nearly private as there were absolutely no crowds near the private boardwalk. Unfortunately, it had just rained before our arrival and the sand dunes have an unusual amount of brush which attracted enormous mosquitos. Be sure to bring mosquito repellent and citronella candles if you want to enjoy the patio. The dunes also apparently are home to rattlesnakes as signs are posted so be careful while on the ground level as this property is right in front of the dunes (of course this is how you have the amazing view). Of course dunes are needed to prevent flooding, but I think if they can cut down the amount of brush or use pesticides if possible it may decrease the mosquitos and eliminate rattlesnakes. This is of course something the entire Lost Colony complex would need to look into. Also, there is no access to the garage so there is no place to put your trash out of view. It would be nice if the owner could provide a space to place trash. Otherwise, nice experience and be

Take a dip in the shared pool or hang out inside: the open-concept layout makes it easy.. You’ll love your stay in our unique 3BR/3BA beach house at Lost Colony. We have some of the best Gulf views on the island, plus two levels of decks for enjoying them. Stroll the private boardwalk to the beach. Or cool off at Lost Colony’s shared pool, just steps from your front door.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

Kick back and relax in our large living room, watch TV on the flat-screen with cable, and deal a game of cards at the adjacent dining table. Or cook full meals or pack snacks for the beach in the fully stocked kitchen, which includes all appliances.

Our house sleeps 9 comfortably across 3 bedrooms. Our master bedroom has a sprawling king-size bed and its own private bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, and the 3rd bedroom is a bunkroom with a full-over-full bunk and a twin-over-twin bunk.

Two more baths make it easy for everyone to get clean after a day at the beach.

THE LOCATION

Everything you need for a relaxing beach getaway is here at Lost Colony. It’s about a 10-minute drive to downtown Port A – just far enough for peace and quiet. The Lost Colony boardwalk takes you right to an unpopulated stretch of beach, and the community pool is just steps away.

Want some adrenaline-fueled fun Schlitterbahn Waterpark is only a 20-minute drive south.

Due to the extreme risk to individual safety and property, city ordinance strictly prohibits the use of any type of cooking grills within 10' of a rental home, and never on any decks or balconies. Violators are subject to significant fines from the city and are responsible for all damage and liabilities. In addition to penalties enforced by the city, any renter that is caught violating the ordinance will be subject to a $1,000 fine by Lost Colony. Please help ensure a safe stay for you and all of those around you by adhering to this ordinance.
