About Wesley Hester Jr
Hello fellow travelers. We are Wesley and Paula, and we're the parents of 4 adult children. We own several rental properties, and enjoy domestic and international travel, including land and cruise vacations. We are proud property owners, and take great care to ensure amenities function properly. We take great pride in maintaining the type of homes we would enjoy occupying. We recently purchased the home, and completed a 6 month remodel project. Afterwards, we took a few days to decorate it for your stay. We do this because we truly value your business, and it is our privilege to make you comfortable during your stay. When the home is not rented, we plan to visit often, and conduct (or arrange for) any necessary repairs or maintenance. As a retired police officer, Wesley works part-time as a Private Security consultant, and spends time maintaining multiple residential properties. Paula is a full time Executive Assistant / Office Manager for a large corporation. We manage our own properties. We take pride maintaining efficient communications with potential tenants, and current tenants. We are both born and raised in San Francisco East Bay Area. We currently live in the suburbs of the East Bay.

Why Wesley Hester Jr chose Twin Palms
We recently fell in love with the vibrant and diverse Palm Springs community. We enjoy good food, friendly sophisticated people, and a welcoming atmosphere, and found this and more in the greater Palm Springs. There are so many things to do in the region. As brand new property owners from the SF Bay Area, it will likely take us years to fully appreciate this beautiful area.
What makes this Condo unique
Easily keep in touch with friends and family using our WIFI, or new landline with free USA, UK, Canada, Mexico and Europe calls (over 30 countries). The slower pace of this desert enclave does wonders for our mental health. We hope this does the same for you!

Hello Dale; We feel so fortunate to have had you as guests. Covid 19 caught us all by surprise. You were extremely kind guests. We’re so sorry you were forced to leave prematurely. Thank you so much for taking care of the place, keeping it so clean and for your positive review. We would love to have you back.
Hopefully you’ve received the credit to your card.

Beautiful condo in a wonderful complex
I stayed in the condo for close to 2 months... it is beautifully remodeled and fully stocked with everything you might need. The patio is private with a beautiful view. This building is much quieter than the ones where the bedroom faces 111. It’s a lower level unit, so no stairs. There is some footstep noise from the upper unit but this is the case in all the lower units and not overly bothersome... the pool and hot tub area area are amazing, with friendly neighbors. Wes was responsive and helpful, easy to work with.
Thank you so much for your feedback Janelle. You were more than a joy to host. Paula and I would happily welcome you back anytime for your next PS experience! Thank you SO MUCH for looking after our home, and for your prompt and clear communications. Thank you for the assistance with the shipment.
We wish you the best of luck in all your travel adventures!

Nice apartment in great location, some noise and odor issues from neighbours
We spent a month in this large one-bedroom unit in the Smoke Tree Racquet Club condo complex, adjacent to the lovely Twin Palms neighbourhood. The location is excellent, within easy walking distance to groceries and restaurants, close to many golf courses and hiking trails, and directly on the city bus line into downtown Palm Springs, about 2.5 miles away. The complex has tennis and pickleball courts, a swimming pool, and shared laundry facilities with coin-operated front-load machines, serving a mix of permanent residents and vacation rental tenants. The unit itself is large and comfortable, with good sized rooms, and has been nicely renovated with care, including quartz counters and new appliances. The west-facing patio remained in the shade until late afternoon in November, and the condo stayed cool, despite 90F weather. The kitchen was stocked with basic provisions and spices, and Wes was responsive and easy to work with. The only issues we had are ones that were beyond the owner’s control. During our entire stay, there was an almost continuous odor from the next-door resident’s vape, incense and pot use, which made it difficult to enjoy the patio or open windows and doors for fresh air. And we heard their occasional middle-of-the-night domestic disputes. Despite this, we enjoyed Palm Springs for the climate, activities, and entertainment.
Hello Tanja; thank you for your very detailed review, and your patronage. We’re really happy to hear how much you enjoyed the area, but We’re really sorry to hear about the neighbor issue you described. We hope that didn’t put too much of a damper on things. We will be following up with our HOA directly, and try to determine the best way to address that situation. We hope you had a safe return home.
A great stay
Nestled in a great neighborhood, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The unit was spotless upon my arrival, and had basically all that I needed. The private patio and general privacy of the unit had me always feeling comfortable. Everything in the unit is new or nearly new and very modern.
Wes was always available to respond to any questions I had, which I thoroughly appreciated.
I loved having restaurants and a grocery store right across the street within a mere 3 minute walk. The surrounding neighborhoods of Twin Palms, Deepwell Estates, Indian Canyons, Tahquitz River, are all just steps away and thoroughly enjoyable to wander around.
JUST COULDN'T BE BETTER - FABULOUS CONDO.
My wife and I have just returned home to Ireland after spending one month at Wes & Paula's wonderful condo. They were so helpful during the booking process and made sure that everything was in order during our stay. This one bed condo has recently been totally renovated and we were so pleased with the location, cleanliness and convenient Ralph's supermarket - a 5 minute walk away! Trader Joe's in Cathedral City is only 10 minutes away by car and The Palm Springs Buzz - a convenient way of going into the centre - has a stop convenient to the Smoketree shopping centre.
Our condo was conveniently situated to the large swimming pool/hot tub on the complex. There are so many restaurants in Palm Springs to choose from but our favourite from previous visits is still The Thai Smile, followed closely by the Fisherman's Market, LuLu"s and Billy Reed's. Favourite coffee shop of course is still the Coffee Bean and Tea House - take a seat here right in the middle of Palm Springs and watch the world go by!!
We just can't wait until we return for another vacation at this fabulous condo!! Many thanks Wes & Paula.
