Turnkey and Whimstay Team Up to Provide More Rental Home Options for Last-Minute Travel Across the U.S.

USA, Austin, Texas. November 17, 2020

TurnKey Vacation Rentals, which manages over 6,000 upscale vacation homes around the U.S., and Whimstay, a platform to secure last-minute vacation rental reservations, have teamed up to offer even more options for travelers seeking great deals and spontaneous getaways. Through this new partnership, the Whimstay website and app will feature TurnKey's extensive collection of vacation rental properties, offering additional inventory for home-stay options throughout the United States.

"Whether travelers are planning a spontaneous trip or looking for a great value, we are excited to offer them more options to stay at our beautiful homes," said T.J. Clark, Co-Founder and President of TurnKey. "Whimstay aligns with our foundational focus on innovation and technology, and together we look forward to offering memorable stays for guests."

TurnKey is a full-service vacation rental management company, with vacation homes in more than 80 destinations throughout the country. With TurnKey, guests can stay at a clean, private home at a great value, often including its own private amenities, like a pool, game room or extra space. Whimstay partners with professional property managers to provide travelers with last-minute deals on vacation homes. Travelers can browse last-minute availability on thousands of properties - from beach houses to mountain cabins - and book them immediately.

"We are thrilled to team up with TurnKey to expand our rental home options on Whimstay," said Bradford Solso, CEO of Whimstay. "With an increase in demand for private vacation homes and travelers continuing to book with shorter lead times, it is the ideal moment to bring TurnKey's extensive collection into our platform."

In response to COVID-19, 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.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
