Guestbook comments from the owner

"The home is furnished very stylish and comfortable. Art work is great! Everything was well-stocked (kitchen utensils, linens, etc.) and ready for us to move right in and enjoy a worry-free week in the sun. Landscaping and outdoor furniture was perfect for a relaxing stay. Good location -- close to downtown and easy access to the bike trail."

A Quiet Getaway Spot with Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jama & Joanne's house was everything we were hoping for - and exceeded all our expectations. The house has lots of comfortable seating, the beds and sheets were soft and excellent, the kitchen is open and airy, and the garage is crucial for sunny summer days - but the best part is the big, grassy back yard with the saltwater pool and a shaded lanai with tons of seating. This house has everything you'd need for a getaway, from lots of soft pool towels and floats, to fast wifi, cable and big tv with surround sound, and coozies for your beers and canned drinks. The air conditioning is powerful and works effectively to keep the home cool, but the additional fans provided will move air when you need it. The loungers by the pool create a relaxing environment, and the two umbrellas mean you won't melt in the heat. I highly recommend this house and will look it up for our return in the future!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property several times over the years and once again it didn't disappoint!! Great view of mountains, plenty of shade for dogs and children with a nice pool and Jacuzzi.

The interior is Palm Springs modern with plenty of amenities. The owners make it very easy to operate AC, pool, Jacuzzi, lighting, etc. Plenty of pool towels, chairs and outdoor living space.

We have rented many homes in the Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage area but this is our favorite by far.

Fabulous home with a resort feel

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful home in a lovely neighborhood close to shopping, restaurants and services. The backyard oasis is fantastic with a great pool, hot tub and covered lanai. We especially enjoyed grilling and dining outdoors. The house is outfitted with absolutely everything you could need. Each bedroom is very comfortable and 2 sitting areas offer plenty of space for watching TV/movies, playing games and conversation. We were so impressed with how immaculately clean the entire house is. We're already looking forward to our next visit!

Awesome Palm Springs Home

  • 5 of 5

This home has a wonderful location in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to downtown. The pool, jacuzzi and private backyard were wonderful; we spent the majority of our time poolside. We enjoyed the comfortable outdoor seating as well as cooking on the gas grill. The kitchen is super well equipped and there are plenty of towels and linens. Thank you to Jama, who even purchased a Scrabble game for us to use during our stay. I would highly recommend this home to anyone traveling to Palm Springs with friends or family.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

Had a great vacation with family and friends. The layout is perfect and all the amenities of home (plus a few more) are present. The pool is great, the lighting is awesome, and the house is very clean and orderly. The artistic accents make it a really fun place too - whoever decorated this place has much better taste than me!
