Perfect. Location is amazing. Tucked in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the desert. Near restaurants and shops on El Paseo. At the foot of the hills so less wind. Classic mid-century modern complex. Great piece of history

It Could Be Better, Needs Some Care!

  • 2 of 5

Location of the house was impeccable, interior decoration was modern style, which made it look new. However, there were a few things need improvement. The furnitures were not safe, for example, the master bedroom bed, with a extra piece of wood extruded out on the foot of the bed, tripped me a few times on my first day. The closet was full of owners stuff, there was no space to hang our clothes. The drawers were the same, filled with the owner's belongings. We stayed there for 3 nights, I'd like to unpack and put away my suitcases, but unfortunately, there was no space for us guests. The AC pipes need to be reworked, as one room was overheated, but the other rooms were still cold. There were not enough supplies, kitchen paper towels were not even a full roll on the counter when we arrived, and there was no extra. Utensil tray in the drawer was very dirty. I suggest the owner should come check on the condo at least once in a while to make sure the cleaning crew is doing their job.

This was our second time at this location and it was wonderful. This has to be the best spot in Palm Desert. Thank you Cindy for your hospitality. Patti

Great location and very clean!

  • 4 of 5

Great location and very clean. I would say it sleeps 5 adults comfortably because the sofa bed is a full mattress. I loved the laminated cards to explain the wifi codes, operating the tv's and various other directions. The communication with the owner was great, too! We would definitely stay here again!
