fantastic spot, would stay again.
house is absolutely beautiful, very well decorated and stocked with what you need. the master bedroom shower is big enough for 10 people, very nice. the other thing that is great is that the bedrooms are all pretty isolated from each other, so you aren't right on top of your family or friends. the house overall is much larger than the photos illustrate, both inside and out. it's very well done, and extremely quiet. the neighborhood was pretty empty, so you feel like you're out in the middle of nowhere. everything about this was great, including the salt water pool. the property manager was delightful and very helpful, we had some questions and needs around the backyard control pad display and she came over within 10 minutes to address! the only thing that was slight downside is the beds aren't super large or comfy - so if you like a hard mattress, it's not an issue (more similar to a futon type mattress than a regular mattress). the other thing to be aware of, which I don't think is/was highlighted, is that because it is a private community, they don't allow you to play music outside at all - kind of a bummer when you're hanging all day poolside. but if you enjoy peace and quiet, it's not an issue.
Home and service was about what we expected. We will be back for sure !
I stayed at this lovely home for a long weekend at the end of February, celebrating my birthday with some of my friends. The long and short of it is that this home is impeccable — asthetically, the photos are dead on. For cooks and small groups, it is the perfect vacation destination. The back wall of this home is a series of pocket doors that open entirely to the back pool area, exposing the kitchen and living room to the open air and creating a seamless transition from the indoors to the outdoors. The decor and taste level is amazing — plenty of mid-century, beautiful furnishings to lounge on during your stay. The layout of this home is also perfect for a group of 8-10 — it is spread out enough that everyone has some privacy, but also has a big enough community space that we could all enjoy our time together. I loved it. We had a couple of hiccups over the course of our stay, and Christopher was incredibly available and went to great lengths to make sure we were comfortable and happy. He provided additional equipment in the kitchen to ensure the cooks in our group were satisfied, and also met with me individually to ensure that any concerns about the rental agreement were clear. I'd recommend this property, and working with Christopher, to anyone interested in a similar vacation to Palm Springs. My birthday was incredible, and I'd definitely stay at this house again.
Beautiful home and fantastic compound for the family. Amazing hiking next door at Indian Canyon Park - hiking along the palm trees and desert springs. Wonderfully responsive host. thanks!
The house was wonderful. Exactly as it is shown in the photos, very spacious and the master suite was perfect. HUGE shower the size of a small room. The pool and hot tub were the perfect temperature. We were stuck in major traffic and arrived later than anticipated but our host, Ed, was great in keeping in touch. He made sure he was there to greet us and show us how everything worked. Wonderful time.
This was a beautiful home and I would recommend it. Cant wait to come back to Palm Springs.
