Central Location!

  • 3 of 5

The Dessert Princess Country Club is a beautiful site. It is well-maintained and has many amenities. The Site is centrally located in Cathedral City, short distances to many tourist sights, shopping and good restaurants.

Our access to the grounds & condo DP1 was very smooth and well done. We have stayed in many different vacation owner /rental units in the past and recognize that the conditions of these units can vary.

The unit we stayed in at Dessert Princess was very tired. We found the unit in need of a general updating. The furnishings, windows and carpets were in need of a deep cleaning.

The management company that provided the unit to us has a number of different units in the complex. They seem to be very well organized and try to make your stay there pleasant.

We would recommend this experience to friends and relatives with the caveat, "not all rental units are created equal". We would stay at the complex again but would be sure to ask questions regarding the condition of the rental unit.

While in Palm Springs we enjoyed a number of great meals:

- Rick's Grill -dinner- Palm Springs Cuban Food

- Las Casuelas - dinner Palm Springs - Mexican

- Ruby's Grill - Lunch - Burgers

- American Grill - dinner- Palm Springs

- Fisherman's Market & Grill - lunch- Palm Springs

- The Grill On Main - lunch- La Quinta

We visited the normal tourist sites while in Palm Springs. We throughly enjoyed the Swap Meet at College of the Dessert, the Village Fest in Palm Springs, Cabazon Outlet Mall and Old Town La Quinta.

Great weather..... lots to see & do or just sit back and relax.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thanks for your review above, and for staying with us in Palm Springs. I am having a little difficulty figuring out which unit you stayed in. The unit with an arrival on the date indicated has wood floors, with the exception of the master bedroom. It has also been updated recently, although you are correct we do not do full renovations of the kitchen and bathrooms. Nevertheless, most guests are very comfortable during their stays with us, which is our goal. We have a wide range of properties guests can see on our website, and we also identify each one with a link during our processing. Our units include homes, as well as 2 and 3 bedroom condos. The condos often have the best views at Desert Princess because they were build first. Thanks again for staying. Hope to see you again.

Highly recommended for short or lengthy stay in the desert. Quiet with good security, close to eateries and market. Nicely furnished with very special complimenting wall art of world known musicians. Clean and tidy furnishings with sample book library selections and well equipped kitchen and patio area.

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

From the start and all the way through working with Tim through email was very easy and very personal. Upon arrival and throughout our stay the people at the front gate were very helpful and nice. Driving onto the country club was beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the place since I had never been there. The condo was simple to find and felt very private. I would take this place over a hotel any day. The condo itself was great. Clean, spacious and had everything you need. We didn't have time to check out any of the activities or restaurants but would have if we weren't so busy. Yes, would recommend this place and hopefully will have a chance to go back. Thanks, Tim for a great experience.
