The Silver Sands Raquet Club was a beautiful community.

  • 2 of 5

The house was in need of many, many updates and repairs. The linens and towels were very old and worn out with holes in them. The extra linens were just thrown on the floor in a closet that was full of old miscellanous stuff.The kitchen supplies were worn out as well and not organized in any cabinent. Bring your own bedding and pots and pans!

Lovely gated community -good location. The condo needs lots of TLC!

  • 2 of 5

The condo is in bad shape -lots of repairs and maintenance needed: front door has a board duct taped to it (think it was covering a hole!),floor boards loose and uneven, everywhere needs painting, grout in bathroom and kitchen needs redoing, door on bottom of stove missing, bed linen stained and old, cupboards disorganized, dishes and glasses in cupboards dirty and full of broken stuff (including broken vacuum), the few plants and one palm tree in outdoor area are dead! When we arrived the place was very dirty and the only outdoor furniture was a dirty glass top table and one old chair, no garage door opener, wifi not working and no toilet paper! We contacted Jennifer, the owner, and she arranged for a deep cleaning including one stained couch. It took Raquel and 2 of her cleaning staff 3 hours to clean the place (that's how bad it was) -they did a great job. The wifi was fixed, the garage door opener sent via mail ( arrived 2 weeks later!) and Jennifer's husband came to see us. He bought 4 outdoor chairs, paper towel and toilet paper. On a happier note: Silver Sands is a great complex especially if you play tennis and/or pickle ball. Lots of courts, drop in tennis and pickleball. Tennis pro, Isabelle, is a great coach and there's always someone to play with. The grounds are beautiful kept-lots of pools and hot tubs scattered around. Location is good too-short drive to El Paseo, restaurants and shopping close by. Great hikes, golf and walks.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry for the condition you arrived to. We took these issues very seriously and did as much as we could to rectify the situation right away. My husband drove out there during the work week to fix what he could and we even refunded a portion of your stay.

Palm Desert Villa was niece but

  • 2 of 5

But the two bathrooms the lights/ electricity was not working and it was very painful to dry my hair and also around the house electric things were not working at all.

The oustside patio chairs where ripe and roof black cover was hanging on top of the table to eat out. Also it was not very clean like no love for the pretty place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you had to deal with electricity problems, but no one had told me about them sooner. I have scheduled our electrician to go out and take care of the problem.

Very nice gated community. Great property.

  • 4 of 5

The property is located in a very peaceful gated community. It is right next to pool which was great . The house was very clean. Some things are a little outdated but it wasn't an issue at all. Overall, it was a great experience and I would recommend this property to others.
