Great location! Great owners!
Great location! Great owners!
We spent a month here including parts of March and April, 2013. The owners were very easy to work with from initial contact to final departure. The condo is very clean and well equipped. The local residents are very helpful and friendly. The grounds and pool are well kept and there is clearly pride in ownership here. Our idea of vacation is to park our car and try not to drive again until we have to leave :). We found the location excellent with many restaurants, a grocery store and all of Palm Springs only a short bike ride away. It's convenient to the bus line as well. The peacefulness of the condo is exceptional. Great hiking is available only a short distance from the condo. We have already booked a month next year .... You can't go wrong here.

Manager response: Dear Kim and Terry, Thank you so much for the kind words, we really appreciate it. We are very happy to hear you had a nice time here. We are looking forward to your return next year. Sincerely, Tom and Brian
This is a great place to stay. I will be back for sure. Very quiet and the best view in the complex. The bed is very comfortable. Loved the heated pool and hot tub just steps from the door. Grilled many a steak at that new poolside gas grill. Hiking trails right across the street. Only negative was the couch - a couple of recliners would have been better for this old man's bad back. Cable TV has minimal channels, but I didn't come down to PS to watch TV all day long. 9.5 out of 10.

Manager response: Hi Steven, Hope all is well with you. I just wanted to let you know, we listened to your comments and we have expanded the cable channels. In addition, we placed a larger TV in the unit, and have done a little remodeling (new blinds in the bedroom and bathroom), and remove the rug in living room so to show off the bamboo flooring. Thanks for your review. Regards, Tom

H i Tom/Brian, So it's time for us to leave. Days went by very quickly. We will be leaving tomorrow morning as soon as we are ready, maybe at around 9 a.m. Thank you very much for offering us your place. We have stayed at many different places, but your condo was the best as far as " the feeling like at home" goes. Things on the desk (pen,pencil, elastics, etc), all the items in the closet, coasters on each bed side, we could feel the thoughtfulness of the hosts. We certainly made use of the ice pak every day. Also, Brian, thanks for recommending to us to visit Joshua Tree National Park. This has become the high light of our trip this time. We have learnt a lot of geography and the plants in this harsh desert living. We also enjoyed the blue sky and the mountain view every day from the MB. The nice music has also certainly helped!

We are very excited to return next year and haven't left yet! We arrived Dec 31st to a clean and well appointed condo. The unit, although only 560 Sq ft., served us well during our 3 months stay. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything I needed. The bedroom offers a kal-king bed and is very comfortable with a great walk in closet / storage. We brought our own pillows as that is what we're used to. Bathroom offers bathroom/shower and functional decorated in the original period style. The living room is the main part of the condo and has a great large, comfy couch. The flat screen TV is housed is an Asian cabinet however best viewed if you take off the doors. We found videos, games and some books to occupy our down time but mostly it was the pool that we spent our time at. There are 2 pools, one heated and one not (67 degrees on April 1/11) plus the spa. We spent alot of time at the pool swimming, sunning and meeting many of the home-owners and other seasonal renters. Also many evenings playing Crib and sipping wine on the wonderful patio beside the pool. This is truly the highlight of the complex - the pools and BBQ. The BBQ recently has been connected to a main gas line so it never runs out! Truly a bonus for all in the complex. We feel this is a home away from home and are thrilled to be returning next year. Tom was very attentive to our needs and the entire renting process was efficient and easy. We feel we have met new friends. Thanks Brian and Tom for sharing your wonderful home away from home with us. Regards, Gay & Mark

Dear Brian: We really enjoyed ourselves staying at your place this past Winter. You were right, it really was quiet, and I was able to catch up on some much needed rest. Thanks for the great recommendations on what to see and where to eat. I look forward to coming back. Bye for now. Lou and Marie

Year Purchased: 2007
Why Desert Skies:
I decided to purchase in Desert Skies once I saw how beautiful, and well maintained the grounds are. The mid-century architecture really interests me as well. I really like how peaceful, and quiet it is here. The unit is away from the street, so there is minimal street noise, and offers beutiful views of the mountains from every window, along with pool and spa views.
