Best rental property ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this unit on three separate occasions, and it is a delight, always. It is the best unit we have ever rented, anywhere. The owner is so nice, and great to work with. Thank you again, Barbara, for the lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very positive review. YOU have always been a pleasure to talk with and work with also. I'm glad you were able to enjoy great weather while you were in the desert and were able to get in some good hikes on the various trails close by. You are always welcome at my desert condominium. Thank you for taking good care of the place. Hope to have you back soon. Barbara

Awesome Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of January in Barbara's condo and we were pleasantly surprised how spacious the living room and bedrooms are. In our travels we have rented many condos and homes, this is by far the most well equipped kitchen. The beds are very comfortable as well. The area is quiet and has easy access to many sites the desert has to offer. We loved the Living Desert Zoo and the hike up " The Cross Trail", which is walking distance from this condo. El Paseo is nearby with a variety of great restaurants. Barbara was always just a phone call away and responded quickly and efficiently to our concerns. Do not hesitate to rent Barbara's condo.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of January in this lovely condo. Barbara could not have been more helpful. She answered all of our questions immediately and offered great suggestions for what to do while staying there. The condo is beautifully decorated with a nicely equipped kitchen . The beds were very comfortable . There are orange, grapefruit, and lemon trees right outside of the condo. There are a number of pools to choose from in the development.You can do a leisurely walk through the development or hike mountain trails very close by. The shops and restaurants of El Paseo are right down the hill. We would definitely rent here again.

First class

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting in Somerset for 25 years and by far this is one of the nicest units in the complex. The location is ideal as it is close to the main pool and there is a smaller pool just out side the door. The condo itself is decorated beautifully and well stocked with all you needs for a short or long term rental. It is clean and comfortable. The master bedroom has a great view of the mountains. We would definitely recommend this for a quick or long term getaway and would not hesitate to rent this again. Barbara the owner was a pleasure to work with.

perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We spend the month of Feb. in this beautiful and comfortable condo. We arrived to find cooking (food) essentials already stocked. Kitchen is a dream and had every cooking utensil and platter, dishes, glasses we could hope for. Bedding and linens were new and high quality. We were two of us with some guests and the condo accommodated the varying size groups easily. Weather was warm so we appreciated the cross ventilation. Neighbors were friendly and owner was a dream to work with. Highly recommend this condo. We wished we could have stayed longer to see the hummingbirds hatch in the nest next to the patio.
