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’s proprietary 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. Not to mention, their custom digital lock technology for a 100% contactless check-in and checkout experience.
In 2020, TurnKey introduced new home cleaning innovations, including enhancements to their patented GuestWorks® cleaning system and verification technology. The GuestWorks® system requires professional housekeepers to follow a stringent set of cleaning standards, customized for each home and available on the TurnKey Housekeeping App, as well as confirm and photo-validate their use of EPA-approved COVID-19 fighting products, as identified by the American Chemistry Council’s Center for Biocide Chemistries.
