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.

7. Phone and Internet: Unless otherwise specified, all homes are equipped with a high-speed Wi-Fi connection where service is available and we will provide you with any required Wi-Fi passwords.

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.

Perfect Cabin at Donner Lake We absolutely loved our stay at this modern, sweet & extremely comfortable cabin. It had all of the amenities you could hope for (washer/dryer, dishwasher, outdoor fire pit, Sonos speaker, WiFi, great kitchen with coffee maker, toaster, microwave ... you name it). Our 3 & 5 year old kids loved riding their bikes to the beach and were very comfortable sleeping just across the hallway from our room in the two twin beds). We hope to stay here again in the future!

Loved this adorable cottage! This cottage was perfect for my daughter and I while on a ski trip. The location was perfect and the space was quaint, cozy and comfy! The gas fireplace was amazing at heating up the downstairs. The beds had beautiful linens and the kitchen was stocked perfectly with anything we might need for our stay. Can’t wait to come back again!

Snowed In At Donner Lake What? Snow in May? Booked Donner Lake Get Away in April when temperature was 80 degrees at home. What a surprise to have snow during entire stay. Luckily, this cabin had everything we needed to enjoy spending most of our time indoors. Cabin's decor is like an upscale hotel and kitchen has everything needed to cook, including cook books and some spices. On-line description is right on. Cabin was very clean upon arrival and we were glad we got to check-in early before snow storm hit. Cabin has lots of windows letting in light. Cabin gets cold, first floor heated by fireplace gas log, and appears little or no insulation in walls. However, upstairs room with king-sized bed gets pretty warm and needs black-out drapes to block light from street. Response from TurnKey Vacation Rentals; Monday, June 10, 2019 Hi Jennie, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review and share your experience. We’re thrilled to hear you had a great stay with us and that you even had some snow so late in the season. We also appreciate your helpful feedback and are happy to report that blackout curtains have been installed for the upstairs bedroom and the homeowners are planning on installing a new heating system by Fall of this year. By the way, you were fantastic guests, and we hope you’ll come back to visit us again soon! -The TurnKey VR Team

Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.

Your group will love the delightful alpine-inspired interior and the private backyard fire pit. Sleeps 8.. This is the cutest cabin on Donner Lake. Your 3BR getaway with a loft is moments from the water and 3 miles from Donner Lake Kitchen, a favorite local breakfast spot. The cozy and elegant interior includes a full kitchen, updated bath, and a bright living area with an open floor plan. The front porch and private backyard offer ample space to enjoy the great outdoors.

The hiking and biking trails of Coldstream Canyon are less than 1 mile away, and the historic Donner Summit Bridge awaits in a scenic 12-minute drive.


This delightful lakeside cabin has three outdoor areas and a tasteful open-concept common area, providing your group with plenty of room to relax.

White walls and exposed wood beams bring a rustic-chic vibe to the living room, furnished with a sofa, armchair, and two ottomans. Gather around the fireplace and watch your favorite shows on the 48” TV.


The fully equipped kitchen has every gadget and piece of cookware a chef could ask for, and butcher block countertops make meal prep a breeze.

Big windows bring lots of sunlight into the dining area, where a handsome table seats 6.


This two-story cabin sleeps up to eight guests in three bedrooms and a loft.

Upstairs, the first bedroom has a heavenly king-size bed. The second bedroom is located on the main floor with a queen-size bed.

With a prime location near Donner Lake (500 yards from a lovely sand swimming beach) and close to both Sugar Bowl and Donner Ski Ranch, this delightful cabin is positioned for all-season fun. Hike or snowshoe the Mount Judah Loop for panoramic views of the area -- the trailhead is a 12-minute drive from home.

Sticks Market has you covered for both groceries and sandwiches. Grab a picnic lunch before heading back to West End Beach, a leisurely 10-minute stroll from your door.

Visit the historic Donner Party Monument in a 4-mile drive, then continue your trip back in time at Emigrant Trail Museum & Bookstore.

This rental is also walking distance to the seasonal Little Truckee Ice Creamery (open in summer and fall only) and Donner Pub (coming Thanksgiving 2019).

Upon arrival, easily access your vacation home with a keyless secure door code; no need for an in-person key exchange. Your rental will be professionally cleaned and ready for you to enjoy.
