Could've been very nice but....
Unfortunately, we can not leave a good review of this property. The unit has been remodelled quite nicely, but some key necessities have been left untouched. It has a great view of the fairway as the picture indicates. There are two large (4') sliding doors to let the outdoor air in, of which only one works. The other is close to not working and was difficult for my wife to open. One of the window frames in one of the bedrooms is also broken. The VRBO ad speaks of a printer, which is important to us, as we have a bit of work we bring with us on vacation. The printer was not working (dried out ink cartridges). We contacted the owner - no response. The same went for the broken window - no response. We asked 4 times about getting someone in to fix the stuck 4' sliding door before getting this response - "We have used the other door for 15 years. No one has ever complained." That stuck sliding door is one half of the opening. Both sliders could be fixed for very little money. The shutters are also broken, and they were not willing to fix those either. It might be a good idea to let the prospective clients know in advance what works and what doesn't. We are coming from a cold wet climate to enjoy a month of sunshine and warm air. For amount of money we paid, we expect both 4' sliding doors to function. We expect a fully functional unit with everything working as advertise.
The dining room chairs are very uncomfortable because the webbing is so old and stretched that your derriére goes right through the seat and the frame of the seat is what holds you up...new chairs? Again, not a big deal or expense to fix.
Also, we asked the management specifically if there were bugs (as mentioned in another review of this property), and we were promised there were NO bugs. There ARE bugs....crickets are getting in somewhere...probably through the sizeable hole in the screen door to the patio. I do not like bugs, esp in that quantity. Too bad. With a little TLC this could be a 4 or 5 out of 5.
Nice owners and nice manager - property needs cleaning and updating
I would not stay here again
Thank you for your feedback and for staying at Joe's Place for Jan. and Feb. 2017.
I wanted to reassure you that the condo was professionally cleaned the day that you arrived by one of the best housekeeping team in the Desert.
If something was missed, I wish that I had known and they would have gladly come back to correct it.
Yes, we agree with you that the dining room seats are too soft and needs to be reupholstered. Rather than to have disturbed you, the owners plan to have it reupholstered after the season in Apr. 2017.
I'm glad that you found everything else to your satisfaction and enjoyed your stay. It's important to us that you are completely happy and have a great holiday at "Joe's Place".
The owners take
Perfect vacation condo!
We have stayed at this condo every year for the past 10 years & love it! We have brought other family members with us on occasion & have recommended it to friends as well. The owners have made numerous upgrades over the years, including the kitchen & master bath, both very tastefully done. The amenities are many, cable with HBO, internet, a fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer & TV's in all 3 bedrooms, kitchen & living room, & a stereo. We always make use of the available golf cart & bikes. The condo is an end unit, affording it with lots of light, & just a 30 second walk to one of many pools in the resort. We will be making reservations for another visit in just a few weeks - can't wait!
Wonderful Condo with Beautiful Location right on the Golf Course!
I have stayed at this condo several times in the past for a variety of reasons: anniversary trip with my husband where he golfed on the golf courses (and I either came along for the ride or visited the spa); family trip with the kids where we played in the pool and barbequed on the patio or with girlfriends for a music weekend at Coachella! Every time is always great...the owners are attentive and the place has all of the amenities. The bathrooms and kitchen have been remodeled, with new appliances and anything else we might need! There are 3 spacious bedrooms, so plenty of sleeping space, a large family/tv room and a patio with a gorgeous spot right on the golf course. There are lots of pools to choose from, but there is a great one just 3 houses down with a nice big jacuzzi and the condo is always clean and well-maintained. I will definitely continue to come back...including next week when I'm booked for another Coachella weekend!
The house was the right size and kitchen was well stocked. The property is in an excellent location... However the house needs to be fumigated and the artificial plants need to be replaced and or removed. The bug problem is an issue for renters. My grandsons didn't like all the bugs.
Great place to stay
We rented this house for a cousins' retreat in the month of August. My sister also owns a condo nearby in the Palm Valley Country Club so half of us stayed here and the other half at my sister's house. A hot time to come, but at least we don't have to fight the crowds. We enjoy the community and the pools. We found the home to be clean, well maintained and consistent with how it was advertised. Marlene was easy to work with and communicated well.
Platinum membership includes unlimited use of both Ted Robinson golf courses: The Callenge and Championship, 16 tennis couts and the award winning athletic club and spa (guest fees apply), free use of the 49 swimming pools and spas including 3 on-site restaurants, pro-golf and tennis shop
