Casa Magdalena

  • 5 of 5

I was captivated by the pictures of the house on the VRBO website. When we came to the house, I knew the pictures did not do it justice. The house is gorgeous! It has a cute Spanish feel to it and it's in a nice quiet neighborhood.

The hosts were absolutely nice and accommodating. They provided a tour of the house and provided greeting items that added a warm touch to the stay.

I would definitely stay here again.

We rented this house for a month. It is adorable and has so many places to sit and enjoy the warmth of Palm Springs. We had family visit through the month and everyone enjoyed it. The kids were in the pool all day. Great places to eat within just a few blocks. Excellent location to main drag of Palm Springs and Ruth Hardy Park. Our dog had lots of playmates there each afternoon. Casita is very nice for grandparents to have own space.

All great but….

  • 4 of 5

We rented this place with 3 other couples. It is in a great location. We loved the yard,the pool and the privacy. It all worked out great except for one of the bedrooms was very small and the (double) bed was very uncomfortable. A new bed in that room is all this place needs to get my five stars. Otherwise someone, in a group of four couples, is going to be unhappy.

A perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this home for a 40th birthday weekend, and it was perfect. Beautiful yet comfortable main house, great guest cottage, and wonderful pool. It made for a very special weekend and an amazing dinner party for 4 couples. Kim, our rental agent, was also super helpful. I would recommend this to anyone.
