Excellent extended family retreat
Excellent extended family retreat
Four couples from different families and different generations stayed here over Thanksgiving, 2013. It was terrific! Everything was clean and working. Pool heated and hot tub hot. The outside grill worked and the fridge was stocked with drinks, thank you Gary and wife Sally. Inside kitchen amazed the cooks in our party and every meal was easily prepared. Beds new and new linens in bedrooms and baths. The garage had pool toys, bikes and more. Our bike ride through the neighborhood was wonderful. Close to everything, yet off the beaten path, this is the go-to place for stress free fun and relaxation.

A little family get together was made very satisfying at this well appointed property. The owners are informative and accessible. The house looks every bit like a model home but is very comfortable in its design, furnishings and accessories. A very clean home in a gated neighborhood with a clean and inviting pool and hot tub. Being a fellow VRBO owner, I highly recommend this property.

Our home away from home for 5 months
Our home away from home for 5 months
My parents rented this beautiful home for the winter with the expectation that various family members would visit over the course of five months. Everything in the house was exactly as listed in the ad - it was filled with lovely furniture and decoration and was immaculately clean. The pool and spa were absolutely wonderful (although it took awhile to figure out how to keep it running properly; guess we should have looked in the manual). There were pool toys, tons of towels, bikes in the garage, truly everything one could ask for. The kitchen was full of cookware, ovenware and serving plates, (although my parents found the dishes very heavy) everything we needed. Over the course of their stay, many family members took turns visiting and it was great to have so many bedroom choices, lovely dining area and great backyard to hang out with family in. Tim the pool man showed up on time every time and kept the saltwater pool in excellent condition and the grounds were cleaned every Saturday. We have to make special mention of Char, the go to woman for any problems that we ran into. She went above and beyond what was her job so many times and was so helpful in getting my parents set up in November. We are all very grateful to her. The location is fantastic for getting anywhere in the area; by the time we left we could make it to Palm Springs in 20 minutes and Indio in 10! The one downside is the fact that the train tracks are very close as is the 1-10 so the noise from traffic can be quite loud at night, especially in the casita. There is a lovely park just at the back of the compound which we walked in a lot. Gary (the owner) gave us his cell phone number and responded to any question or concern we had. We would all recommend this house to anyone looking for a large home which is extremely well furnished and maintained with an owner who will respond to any concerns.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My wife Sally and I bought the property in May of 2011 as a weekend getaway for our us to spend time with family and friends. We hope to find guests that will enjoy the home as we do with our family.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Capri:
We love the location, quality of construction and the fabulous backyard. We fell in love with it when we saw it the first time. It's a short drive to all of the popular desert spots and access to the 10 freeway is just a few minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The rear yard is so private. Nobody can see into the yard and because it's a corner lot there is no neighbor on the south side. Sun exposure is great from morning to late afternoon and by that time you have usually had enough sun. Mountain views are nice and it is just a fabulous place to get away from the stress at work and home.
