About Anna Hunter
We moved to Palm Springs about over 20 years ago from Rancho Cucamunga and bought our home out here in the Desert. We started our Business here in the Desert and Never Looked Back.
Anna Hunter purchased this House in 2006
Why Anna Hunter chose Palm Springs
I bought this Home because of the Beautiful Mountains right outside of my Home. The views from the windows are so gorgeous and I loved being close to the Main Highway right into Palm Springs. This property was also close to the Main Downtown Area without all the Traffic or Noise. It is a Quiet and Tranquil Neighborhood and yet Close to Everything.
What makes this House unique
Downtown area is close by where all the excitement is whether you are going Dancing, Looking for a great restaurant to go to, Casinos to play, Waterparks for the kids. We are just 20 Minutes away from the Cabezon Outlets. You can enjoy the Aerial Tramway which is right down the street. We have so many beautiful things to see and do in the Coachella Valley

Be Forewarned that the house is located on the back perimeter of a development that sits right next to the wind farm with windmills in proximity and full view. As a result, high and often gusty winds prevail making it next to impossible to sit pool side or even go for a walk. We experienced many sleepless nights due to the gusting winds tearing up the roof and then taking several days to repair. These high winds blow a lot of trash into the yard and right up to the front entrance, a dirty and unwelcome sight every morning when we walked out the door. The furniture was uncomfortable and the appliances old resulting in the dishwasher breaking down three times during our two months stay last Spring leaving us without use for almost four weeks. The vacuum cleaner provided was so old the wheels fell off the first time we tried to use it. Crickets abound indoors - one even jumped out of the cookware the first time we used the kitchen. I recommend you ask the Owner for a picture of the back yard which is basically unusable.
In response to Mr. Wilburn’s review:
We care very much what our guests think, and we definitely go out of our way to make it a happy and pleasurable experience for all our guests. Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen mishaps and weather conditions that happened during his stay, he posted this review.
When he informed me of the vacuum cleaner breaking down, I immediately replaced it with another one. When he told me that it had gotten really windy and that they had not been able to sleep well because they kept hearing noise on the roof, I immediately made arrangement with a roofer which resulted in repairing and replacing a loose roof tile. Unfortunately we do get some winds during certain time of the year, which blows debris in your yard. In one of the windy days, it kicked over someone’s trash which spilled into my yard and neighbor’s yard. I have no control over that. Winds do come and it can last a few days but most part of the year, we have great weather.
The bigger issue for him was the fact that the dishwasher went out. These appliances are almost like new. I never had issues with any of them, however, when I was informed of that, I immediately called our Home Warranty Insurance. They dispatched a repairman the next day and informed me that the dishwasher needed a new electric control panel in which the repairman came back to install the new one. After a few days, it went out a second time. At that time they had to order the part from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, this took some time before the part came in. I did apologize to him for the inconvenience but he actually wanted me to go out and buy another dishwasher. I thought that was unreasonable. That is why I have Homeowner’s Insurance. I explained to him that I had a warranty on the appliances and that they have to try to resolve the repair first and if they cannot then they would replace it. He was not happy with this.
Addressing the crickets: Unfortunately, this is the desert and it is very common in the desert that during certain time of the year, you will experience a lot more crickets than you normally see. Our house gets sprayed at least 4 times a year but every so often they still do make it in the house. However, it is impossible to totally eliminate some critters from entering the house. He never mentioned to me about the crickets except in the review.
As owner, I do go out of my way to get things done as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We had a wonderful stay. The house looks just like the photos and was so clean. We had everything we needed. The views were amazing. I enjoyed the fact that the complex was quiet and beautiful. There were 3 lovely pools within walking distance and they were very well maintained. The water was perfect for the hot weather. We took advantage of the hot tubs too. The location was ideal, just maybe 5 minutes to downtown Palm Springs. Lots to do! Hiking and the Tram to the top of the mountain just a few minutes away. Anna was lovely to do business with too. I would come back here in a heartbeat!
Our stay here wasn't quite what we were hoping for. The home isn't quite like the pictures starting off with the huge dent in the garage door. The front exterior is pretty but the back leaves a lot to be desired. The interior is clean but well lived in. The sofas and bedroom carpets are very dingy. The kitchen although pretty well stocked is lacking a toaster so you have to make due with a toaster oven. And there is no tea kettle. The main tv has lots of channels but the other tv only get a few,when they work.
the closest pool is an 8min walk away and was unheated during our stay. The front pool is 30min walk away and although heated still extremely cool to the point of being uncomfortable.
there is a lack of lightning and no lights in the ceiling in both bedrooms or the den which made nights awkward.
i wouldn't recommend this rental for an extended stay.
*** it should be noted that 6 days after our departure Anna the rental owner emailed us to claim we caused damage to her garage door. The damage was already there before our stay but she is yet to return our damage deposit. We have taken this up with vrbo and hope to have sorted soon.
In response to Haley's review.
We always care what our guests think and want them to be happy with their stay at our home in Palm Springs.
Haley and her guests stayed from March 1st - March 8th. Unfortunately, after their departure and inspection of the property there was damage to the front Garage Door that was not there prior to their arrival. We do inspections after each guests departure. After contacting the guests regarding the damage to the Garage Door is when she put the bad review. The damage came to over $1,000.00 and of course had to withhold her deposit.
In regards to the other items mentioned in the review. On the Tea Kettle, we have never had a request for that and certainly we would have provided that if we had known. We do offer a Coffee Pot and coffee for our guests that stay in our rental.
We offer a Toaster Oven and is used mainly for toasting.
I have never had any complaints to the channels on the TV's. Everyone that has stayed on the property has been satisfied with the programming. I am also surprised to hear that the these guests were disappointed with the carpet and sofas. This house is like brand new from when it was purchased and most guests have told me that it looks like a model home. It is clean and in pristine condition and exactly as pictured. There are lamps in every room with sufficient lighting. There are also in-ceiling lights in the Kitchen area. As far as the pool. There is one pool out of 3 that are always heated in this community and that information is always given to the guest before arrival. I have had no complaints on the pools and the home itself. All pools are within walking distance. All the guests have enjoyed their time here in our property.
We take great care in pleasing our guests and making sure they have a great stay in our property and we will do what we can to enhance the stay for our future guests.
Best Vacation Ever!
We stayed at this home for Labor Day weekend. The house was spotless and in mint condition. Our family had the best time in the 3 pools that are in the complex, the tennis court and children's playground. The location was PERFECT for visiting nearby attractions or just shopping, minutes to downtown Palm Springs where all the action is, and yet close to the freeway if you want to go to the 5 Casinos in the area, shopping, the many restaurants, and other great cities' around Palm Springs and their many activities. We highly recommend this house. We will come back next year for sure.

We are located near the Famous Arial Tramway. With the scenic San Jacinto Mountain Views right outside our doorstep. With a hop, skip and a jump to the Downtown area, there is so much to see and take in. We have wonderful restaurants to enjoy. Eat, Drink and be Merry!
