                                                              Very Fun, Clean and Great Location

                                                              Audie W.

                                                              My wife and I stayed for 8 nights in December and really enjoyed it. Bonnie the owner was great to work with as was her sister. The kitchen was fully stocked, the king size bed very comfortable. The little back yard and gas fire place we're fun after a round of golf. Ocotillo Lodge also has a great heated swimming pool. We are already looking at dates to stay again next year!

                                                              Love my stay at the Ocotillo

                                                              Robert P.

                                                              Bonnie's suite is very nice with a well equipped kitchen and barbecue in the backyard. The unit is very clean and a shirt walk to the pool and gym.

                                                              Towels and amenities are first class. Great neighbors and very pleasant resident manager and husband.

                                                              I would not hesitate to go back in the future.

                                                              Cute and cozy

                                                              We stayed here for 3 nights recently and overall found it well stocked,clean and convenient. Very quiet with a nice outdoor sitting area and communal pool.Our only complaints would be the relatively noisy air conditioning unit and the too soft memory foam on the bed.

                                                              Great place to stay!!!!!

                                                              Cindy M.

                                                              My business partner and I had to find a place to stay during a very busy weekend in Palm Springs. I found Bonnie's listing on VRBO and was very happy to find a great price for the time that we needed. Bonnie was great to work with. Our stay was amazing. This little condo is great. Everything you could ask for, beautiful furnishings, great bed and the pool and Jacuzzi were the greatest. In fact my business partner was so sad to have to leave one of the best Jacuzzi's that we have ever had the chance to use. We also loved the cute and very private little backyard.

                                                              Thank you Bonnie for a great place to stay.

                                                              We have wintered at this property for a number of years which speaks for itself. Very large patio with lounges and patio set is great for outdoor entertaining. Comfortable king bed and well appointed with all one needs in the kitchen. Very bright with lots of natural light from the patio doors. Conveniently located to shopping and downtown. We have recommended this property to others.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Note: The patio has been changed as of April of 2016. Now has artificial lawn with fire pit and water fountain, and large dining set that seats six. We do not have the chaise lounges any longer but comfortable chairs next to fire pit.

                                                              Comfortable peaceful stay at Ocotillo Lodge

                                                              This is a comfortably furnished and decorated condo in a location a full block to the back from Palm Canyon Dr., so was a peaceful long weekend over Christmas. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked with all the amenities of home, the king bed a welcomed Tempurpedic and the private yard a nice size with patio furniture and occasional visits by hummingbirds. The Ocotillo Lodge entertainment area, including a nice large pool, two hot tub-jacuzzis and gym, is a short walk from the condo, and provides plenty of space for a workout or relaxing with a great view of the mountains. Just minutes from the main Palm Springs attractions, this condo offers location, comfort and economy for short or long-term stays. The owners provided an easy solution for arrival and departure, were attentive to brief phone calls and emails, and were kind and thoughtful enough to supply a Christmas floral gift upon our arrival! Many thanks for meeting our needs on this visit to your desert home.
