Large house, needs routine maintenance

  • 3 of 5

We were 2 families, 4 adults and 6 kids. I chose this house because it had enough bedrooms and was kid friendly and a good price. The house is large with plenty of comfortable beds and in a great location. The backyard, driveway and game room were great for the kids. We did not heat the pool in April and it was cold. ( I had read the reviews of pool heat issues and elected to forgo it )

From the pictures you can tell the house and furniture is dated and in need of an update. From the pictures you cannot tell that the place needs at least $20,000 worth of routine maintenance that has just not ben done. The walls were really marked up and the carpet needs to be replaced. Chips in tile, walls and stucco were all around. In the master bath the jetted tub did not work, one of the sinks did not work and every time I took a shower it seemed the faucet handle was about to fall off the wall.

As other reviewers have said the kitchen needs to be more completely outfitted, but we did have plenty of towels, hand soap and toilet paper. The gas stove does not automatically light, you have to use a lighter. The TVs were big and in almost every room. It was not cable, but had Netflix and apps. Wifi worked fine.

The washer and dryer are coin operated, but the dryer did not work while we were there. I have never seen coin operated laundry machines in a house before. We did get $195 of our deposit back after several weeks and several phone calls. I am not sure why they kept $5.

All in all the house was a little worse for wear than I thought it would be, but we made the best of it and in some respects it kept us from worrying about the kids so much. Palm Springs is a wonderful home base for visiting the area and the weather was perfect. Adult beverages by the pool every night while the kids played was a great way to end a day of hiking and sight seeing.

family holiday vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for multiple families. My sister comes down from Seattle every year to Orange County to visit my mom and my family (with 2 kids). We were looking for a place to call home for a week to relax and provide entertainment for our 5 children (ranging from 6-10). We could not have chosen a better place!!! The game room was amazing, especially for the boys with a pool table, ping pong table, and air hockey table. The best part is that the noise stays in the game room!

Not only do you have access to an amazing backyard with a pool and spa but you have control of the temperature! This was great for us since we happened to rent the house during a cold snap. The kids had a fabulous time playing in the pool despite it being the coldest it ever is in the desert.

Despite the reviews being negative for refunding the security deposit I was pleasantly surprised to get an unsolicited notification regarding my refund within a week of renting! I did not even have to ask or remind them about my deposit. Alex, as well as the rest of the maintenance crew, were amazing about making our experience fabulous. (Which is crazy considering we rented the house over Christmas and the holiday season.)

The only thing I wish I knew prior to arrival, is that the house has the bare essentials. If you plan on cooking make sure you bring what you need. (i.e. extra blankets, pool towels, measuring cups, hot pads, tin foil, salt & pepper, seasonings, etc) With that said you are getting a great vacation home! Thanks Alex for making our Christmas vacation 2016 THE BEST! We will definitely be back soon!

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

The house was awesome. Definitely older, and had some wear and tear on it, but it fit a lot of people and the backyard was awesome.

Other than that, the experience wasn't too great. I never take the time to write reviews, but felt I needed to because I'm upset about our situation.

#1 We checked in on a Friday, day before our wedding. When we returned from our rehersal dinner, a guy was there working in the backyard, not sure if it was owner, but he was very rude to my brother- in-law and husband, and we had no notice someone would be coming.

#2 Had a leak in downstairs bathroom so we were unable to use that toilet all weekend. I did not care to complain at the time because I had other things to worry about with the wedding.

#3 It took 12 days to get deposit back, when it said a week.

#4 The owner held $40 from my deposit because some ceiling fans were left on. There were no instructions on checking out. We cleaned everything and forgot to turn ceiling fans off. I even looked over contact, and nothing of the sort was mentioned. I contacted owner because I felt it was extremely unfair to hold my money like that, especially after we dealt with a broken bathroom all weekend, and he failed to call me back and still only gave me $160 back. I know his electric bill did not go up $40 in one day from ceiling fans being left on. It's stealing. The contract specifically said the deposit will be held if there was any damage done to house, more than normal wear and tear, and we definitely did not leave any damages, so please tell me why he held my money and how this is fair?!

My family talked about how awesome it would be to stay there during summer time, but due to the owner being extremely unfair, we will never stay again.

If anything, we should have recieved a reimbursement of some sort for the messed up bathroom, but instead, I had money taken away from me. Funny how that works.

Sweet place.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at this location, the view of the mountains was just perfect away from all the noise some of the other places (hotels) have. Not your fancy, over the top, type of interior design (furniture) but it was more of a home feeling to it and that was exactly what we were looking for. My favorite part was the gazebo with the pool, we made some pina coladas out there and bbq. Overall, a great stay!

A cozy romantic getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the most romantic getaway my husband has ever planned for us. Getting away from the kids is hard to do but this house is so big we hardly saw our kids the whole weekend. They loved the huge pool and jacuzzi and we would disappear to the master bedroom once in a while unnoticed. The kitchen has beautiful princess house dishes and the rooms were all comfortable and cozy. We had so much planned for our stay but ended up staying in and enjoying the house and the fireplace at night. Great place. Will stay here again soon.

Really Nice Home. And that's where the good stops.

  • 1 of 5

I am beyond disappointed that I booked this house. I booked this house five months prior to my trip for my bachelorette party and as a gift to my bridesmaids. I was anticipating an amazing trip. I have had great luck renting from VRBO and looked forward to my trip for months. Very sadly, it wasn't what I expected AT ALL. The house was absolutely gorgeous, I will give it that, but there were far too many issues that were negative. We had a group of 7 girls. There was not enough of the general supplies such as trash bags, toilet paper (the house came with 1.5 rolls), no oven mitts, and there were dirty cups in the cupboard. There were ants ALL OVER the place in the kitchen. We were told someone would come to take care of them on Saturday morning - nobody ever showed up. We couldn't use the kitchen to cook because the ants were everywhere: countertops, stove, sinks. We all left with ant bites and some of us even had ants in our purses. A fuse blew downstairs and there weren't any directions as to where the box was. We looked all over and couldn't find it. There were no house instructions - the Wi-Fi password, how to operate the tv, where the extra necessities are, etc. We had to call multiple times to figure this out and didn't receive a call back until 7:30 at night. I paid additional for the heating of the Jacuzzi. We weren't able to use the Jacuzzi because it didn't turn on until 8 pm the night we arrived and couldn't use it the next night because it NEVER turned on for Saturday. The AC was also broken in the upstairs master bedroom. And to date, I still haven't received my deposit back. When I reported all of the issues, I was offered a simple apology and then a defensive "we left the house in working order" and "we will bring this to the owner's attention". Due to the lack of property management and issues I had during my stay, I will sadly never rent this property again. It's too bad, too, because it really is a pretty house. I would reconsider renting this house unless you want to experience the same and have a ruined getaway.
