Dream Vacation Home

Desert Starr is a true gem!! The views, the house, the pool and its location are fantastic. The house and its garden/outdoor space are very spacious. We loved the open kitchen/living room area as well as the outdoor hot tub and BBQ station. Good for families or a group of friends -- appreciating luxury, comfort and style. We had an amazing vacation and were able to fully relax. I will definitely come back soon. I can highly recommend the Desert Starr house. Definitely 10 out of 10 points!!!
