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.

Lovely space, courteous owner, but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

The rental is located in a lovely, quiet gated community in palm dessert, convenient to multiple stores and restaurants. The space was roomy and comfortable; we had 4, but the place could easily accommodate 6ppl. Jennifer the owner was courteous and responsive to our inquiries (ie when we arrived, the light bulb in one of the bathrooms had burnt out, but Jennifer had it replaced the same day), however the rental could use significant updates. First some repairs are required. The sink faucet in one of the bathrooms ran at a strong trickle, barely enough to wash hands adequately. One of the ranges on the electric stove does not work at all. The floor boards in one of the bathrooms is loose, turning upwards, and my husband stubbed his toe. The bedding in both bedrooms had notable rips in the comforter and sheets. The most inconvenient was the lack of soap in the kitchen and bathroom. We had thought to bring our own toiletries, but also had to run out to get hand soap and paper-towels. Overall, this place has great potential, but needs some TLC.
