Incredible Home for Incredible Memories

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, Rob & Frazier were incredible. The home was even more beautiful in person (hard to believe) and the layout was perfect. The casita was just the right addition for our family with little ones when it came to naptime. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed (and more!), the pool had toys for the kids AND adults to enjoy, the outside cooler kept our drinks nice and cold, and the beds/furniture were welcoming when it was time to rest after a long, enjoyable day. Location was great - short morning walk to Ruth Hardy Park. Grocery store & downtown just minutes away. Friendly locals too! Rob & Frazier were quick to respond with any questions we had regarding restaurants, nightlife, etc.

Would come back in a heartbeat. Happy to have this home added to our life of memories :)

Nice house, but frustrating property manager, Frazer

  • 1 of 5

While the house provided enough space and separation for our party of 10, our experience with the property manager was less than ideal.

When we arrived, our tour consisted of him complaining about all the things that the previous renters broke and things that the owner wouldn't do. Apparently, the previous renters broke the orange umbrella in the pictures and left all the doors open with the AC running. None of the light switches in the house are labeled, there's about 100 of them (this was one of his complaints about the owner).

The inside of the house was very clean, however, the outside looked like it was ignored by the cleaning crew. The pool was full of leaves (Frazer made sure to point out the skimmer that we could use), and every surface outside was covered in pollen, sit on a chair and be engulfed in a cloud of pollen.

Day 2 we got a text from someone in Canada asking us to check the pool control panel, apparently, it was in service mode or something. When we got back to the house, we checked it and it was, we placed it back in auto mode (as requested) and informed them that the salt water and chlorine error lights were also on. Shortly after, Frazer texted us the following "The pool heat is not to be turned on unless it has been pre-paid for. The misters, as I explained are unavailable - they are also not advertised." I don't know how you can say that the misters are "not advertised" seeing as in the third photo of the property, the misters are on. It was 115 degrees, we did not intentionally turn on the pool heat, that's just ridiculous.

3 hours later, we got a text from Frazer, again asking us why the pool was in service mode. At which point he blamed us for putting it in service mode, using more electricity than any rental ever, demanded we turn off the misters, messing with the pool equipment, and finally threatened to bring "his security team down and ask us to leave".

They sent someone the next morning to look at the system, and lo and behold no more issues!

The day before we were due to check out, Frazer called at least 3 times and sent several texts asking when we'd be leaving so that he could send the cleaning crew. 11 am is listed as the designated checkout time, never before have we had a property manager do this.

A week after the rental was finished, we received an insurance claim for a replacement pool heater.

If you rent this place, make sure you get insurance, they seem to love filing claims against renters!

Relaxing Weekend in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

Our group loved staying at the villa during the first weekend of Coachella. Tucked in a quiet neighborhood, the home offers space and plenty of privacy - even inside! The home is well stocked for cooking in the kitchen and has all of the amenities for the perfect weekend. My most favorite part: relaxing by the pool and bbq'ing during the day.

Perfect property and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 teenage girls, 2 couples, and me and everyone had plenty of space and privacy. The home is large but we used every square inch. This was worth every penny....couldn't have been better. I'm so happy I found it. (Owners were wonderful.)

Absolutely fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the day I made our reservation to the day we checked out, Frazer & Robert were extremely helpful & very friendly. (I asked if there was a coffee grinder. “No, but we’ll get one.” And they did!!)

The house has a spacious, well thought out floor plan. Three bedrooms each with their own full bath, plus a half bath. The casita is like a little attached guest house with a another bedroom and it’s own small living area-with microwave, small fridge and coffee maker. There was plenty of privacy for all of the people in our group. Nice tv room with comfortable seating right off of the large kitchen. Great backyard and hot tub, barbecue and plenty of outdoor seating. In fact, there are little sitting areas outside of each bedroom.

The house is conveniently located and is in a very quiet neighborhood.

This is our fifth year vacationing in Palm Springs and we think we have finally found the perfect fit!!

(The only downside-I never got a chance to take a bubble bath in the master bathtub in front of the fireplace!)
