Nice place to stay, good location, good neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kathleen's house during the month of December. We found that the house was well maintained and comfortable. The house is positioned off the first green, but not so close that you feel self conscience about talking in a normal voice while the golfers are putting (there is a desertscape buffer between the back patio and the green, which maintains your privacy). I was glad to see that the bathrooms were clean and updated and the bed was comfortable. I was, also, glad that the furniture was "normal" and comfortable, several vrbo places that we have stayed at are prone to put style over functionality (looks cool, but try and sit in it for awhile). We didn't have any maintenance or any other type of problems, but if we had Kathleen's place is only a short walk away. .....we travel with our cat and she loved the place, she stayed out "birdwatching" all day everyday, coming in only to eat. There were a couple of huge cats (like 3 times bigger than ours) in the neighborhood, but they were nice and we were comfortable to leave our "normally" indoor cat outside, even when we were golfing. We found the neighborhood safe, nice and enjoyed our neighbors. My wife and I cooked or grilled nearly every evening and frequently walked to the grocery store (roughly a two mile round trip). We would occasionally walk to the golf course restaurant for a beer or glass of wine (happy hour was at 3:00pm). The clubhouse and adjacent restaurant employees are very nice. The golf course has 4 sets of tees, so is appropriate for most handicaps - just pick the appropriate tees. Anyhow, my wife and I enjoyed our stay very much, and would return for a longer duration. This is not the Ritz, but we weren't looking for the Ritz just a good location that is safe and clean with nice views. I hope this review helps you.

Home Away from Home

Our stay was almost two months. The house was comfortable with three bedrooms and two baths. It is located in an older Palm Desert neighborhood with a golf course. Lots of shopping nearby, with easy access to whatever you want to do. The covered patio was great, which looked out to the golf course. The owner was very responsive to any concerns we had. The owner has updated some areas and plans to do more.
