The outdoor hot tub and beverage fridge were much appreciated! I love to cook for our large crowd and found everything I needed in the kitchen.

"My party of 5 was very comfortable at Blue Turtle. We had everything we needed in this well-appointed home. While I understand the need to keep things in order, I find Proactive Vacations' list of fines excessive. A $35 fine for leaving a glass in the dishwasher? Really? That's clearly disproportionate to the violation. Nevertheless, we're the kind of guests who leave things the way we find them without the threat of financial sanction. My party unanimously agrees we would stay in this beautiful oceanfront home again."

"The house was beautiful, views and location were amazing. My only complaint was that the carpet has spots and stains and needs a deep cleaning or maybe even replacement. The fan in the main bedroom was missing a blade and there was damage to the tiles in one of the upstairs bedrooms. I called maintenance about an issue with the outside frig and retractable awning and they responded quickly and fixed the problem. Overall I’d give it a 5 star rating because management responded so quickly to any issues or problems. Everyone was so nice and accommodating at proactive vacations management."

There was plenty of dishes and silverware as well as pots, pans, and baking dishes. All appliances worked well. The ocean side porch was awesome, especially with the awning. Loved the wooden rockers. The hot tub seated five or six and we kept it at about 98 degrees so you didn't need to get out often to cool off. It was especially pretty at night with the lights. The TVs were HD with Spectrum service. Washer/Dryer worked well. Ample parking. Walkable to bridge."
