Perfection in Indian Wells!!!

  • 5 of 5

As I walked into this gorgeous studio I was literally stopped in my tracks at the beautiful view that surrounded me from all of the windows. Mountain views galore!!! A big balcony with a clean, new grill that I cooked lobster tails on as I watched the World Series on the beautiful big screen TV & the comfy couch. A resident hummingbird sat quietly on a branch next to me as I enjoyed my breakfast. This place is magical!!! Kelly is so nice to work with. I decided to stay 2 extra nights & she made it a snap! Martha, the gal who looks after the property, is an angel on earth. Super nice & she does all of the little things that make this a home as opposed to just a rental. The location is the best in the desert. Trader Joe's, Sprouts, Target, Wally World just down the street. Book it & fall in love!!

Not anywhere near as nice as the pictures portray. The pictures may be some years old.Disappointing.

  • 1 of 5

The disappointment begins with the property manager. After submitting payment, I didn't receive email confirmation. The Manager did. I asked her to email me a copy. She told me over phone, "I will not send you a copy of the email. I got the email and you should have too. I'm taking my kids to dinner. Good bye," and she hung up. She refused to cooperate. VRBO told me it misspelled my email address and that's why I did not receive my copy. I do not recommend theis Manager.

The apartment is similar to the pictures, but that's deceiving. The pictures may be X number years old. The furniture is garage sale quality, very beat up. The floor was extremely dirty. I had to buy a sponge mop and clean multiple times the 1st two days. The linens smell like dust, probably dirty A/C filter. I had to buy two pillows to replace their junk and fortunately brought my own bed linens. Would I stay there again? Absolutely not! I hated the place for the 30 day stay. I was thrilled on the lasy day to leave. I would never return to this place or deal with the Manager again. I found this place and it's manger to be very, very disappointing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for providing feedback on this property. I am so sorry that you had such a disappointing experience with the previous property manager and this condo! This manager is no longer with Gone South Vacation Rentals. My husband and I are purchasing all of Gone South's properties (5 at Mountain Cove and 3 at Legacy Villas) on October 1st. We will spend the whole month of October walking through each property and addressing any issues (repairing and replacing everything that needs attention). We have also arranged to have a team of professional cleaners in to deep clean each property. We will then take current photos to replace the dated ones in the descriptions. I hope you will consider staying at one of our properties in the future. I guarantee that the properties and the service will be top notch; you won't be disappointed! Best Regards, Kelly Baucom

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I didn't want to leave - EVER!! We love this place. We have stayed in other condo's in Palm Springs before but thought we would like to stay in another part of the desert on this trip. When we arrived at Mountain Cove in Indian Wells, we were absolutely blown away. The gated community of Mountain Cove is, simply put, breathtakingly beautiful - no exaggeration on words here at all. You are nestled right up into the cove and have beautiful mountains surrounding you, so close that you can walk right up to the massive rocks and touch them! So beautiful at night also - the landscape design is such that these beautiful mountains and lush desert plants are lit up when it is dark and it truly is spectacular to see. Our condo was so clean and complete with everything we needed for our stay, and even included more than what we could use. The high vaulted beam ceilings made us feel as though we were in a chalet and the unit was extremely comfortable. The bed was a double but felt like a Queen - we have a king size at home but certainly were not uncomfortable or crowded in this bed at all. The washroom is beautifully decorated and nicely tiled - We took pictures of the design of the shower so that we can replicate it when we renovate our own washroom back home. The cute little kitchenette was perfect. We did not use the gas bbq on the private balcony/patio because there are so many amazing places to eat here, but you have that option if you like to cook while on vacation. We are considering purchasing a place here in Mountain Cove, our stay here was that satisfying and impactful. Thank you to Amy for her excellence in her booking transactions and for accommodating us before and during our stay. We both appreciated that. Anybody looking at this property and reading this review can be confidently assured that you are getting exactly what you see in the pictures - this place, inside and outside, is a little piece of Heaven right here on earth. The pools are clean and quiet. Most times, you have the one right behind this unit all to yourself. You won't be sorry choosing Mountain Cove condo's for your next vacation getaway. We loved it here. Melanie & Chris (Fort Erie, On Canada)

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Easy check-in process and great communication. The place is exactly like the pictures. Plenty of space, clean, quiet community. Steps away from the pool and central location to grocery stores and restaurants. This was my first booking with VRBO - thanks for a seamless process! Would definitely book again.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Great for one person- can only get in the bed from one side or the end of it-some kitchen utensils , coffee pot for example , was not working. Small refrigerator and only a toaster oven if one is planning on cooking. Nice grill though ! No dishwasher or laundry in the condo.
