About Charles Drabkin

My husband and I have been coming to Palm Springs since we met over 18 years ago. In fact, Palm Springs was the first vacation we ever took together. We recently relocated to the amazing Coachella Valley.

We hope you will enjoy your time here at Sandalwood and welcome any suggestions as to how we can make your stay better.

Comfortable, convenient condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Charles and Michael's lovely condo and we will be back. Quiet location, beautiful patio, well appointed rooms and technology made the experience particularly enjoyable. We highly recommend!

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

From the ease of dealing with Charles on initial contact through to the final booking of the condo, all was seamless and every effort was made to ensure our needs were met. Meeting with us upon arrival as well as being easily available throughout our stay brought a peace of mind to this rental. The location was great with quick access to the pool, tennis court and grocery store - including easily getting to and from the airport! We loved the outside living area and spent much time outside - as long as the weather wasn't too hot! This had everything we needed and appreciated the comfort of the condo. So quiet - it was nice to walk the neighborhood at night. And a last thought - we were a little concerned about being too close to the airport. I can assure anyone thinking the same thing that this turned out not to be an issue at all. No noise problems. All good. Thanks guys for a great stay!!!

Family Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend the holidays! We relaxed by the pool, played tennis (rackets and balls a plenty were supplied) daily and took walks around the neighborhood. The grocery was a short walk away making it easy for our family including kids, parents and grandma to access whatever we needed. Charles and Michael were great hosts as always. We used Lyft and American cab to shuttle into town when we could be pulled away from relaxing making it easy to forego a rental car. Did I mention how spacious this beautifully decorated home is....stay here!

Great stay at a great place.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of October at this clean, comfortable, well stocked, perfectly located condo. The unit provided everything, and more than we could have ever needed. We especially appreciated the tennis rackets and the pool floats. The location to the pool and the tennis courts could not have been better. Charles and Michael were more than willling to work with our schedule and communicated during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone heading to Palm Springs.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for July and August while we settled my mother-in-law who is moving here from the East Coast.

Condo was very clean, even by her exacting standards, and she had everything she could need to help make this first part of her transition easy. Charles and Michael were very accommodating when we needed to extend her stay by a few days.

I would defiantly recommend this place to anyone coming to Palm Springs.

Great way to see Palm Springs!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great first weekend in Palm Springs, using this comfortable and spacious place as our landing pad. Close to museums, restaurants, and natural sites, we had a blast. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub, and just enjoying the weather on the patio. Loads of kitchen space/supplies, towels, and everything we needed (and then some). And plenty of room for a few friends, we look forward to returning with more folks!
