Condo and location are very nice. Would stay there again-However, the lack of communication from the owner caused considerable stress and inconvenience during check-in, and renters should double check all information concerning rental of the unit.

1) Owner did not furnish the unit number/address as we requested and upon arrival at the security gate we were directed to another residence owned by someone with the same name. Just imagine our stress when that owner came to the door and told us we had been "scammed" by VRBO. After a few minutes of discussion that owner remembered there was another owner with the same name--so back out to the security gate for a new address!

2) The real owner had told us we could check in early as he would be the one staying there before us. When we entered the unit it was in total disarray-trash not removed, beds unmade, etc. Housecleaners had not been there. We opened a complaint with VRBO and eventually received a call from the owner. He apologized for the lack of housekeeping and said he would refund 50% of the rental. About 4 hours later the condo was clean and we could finally settle in.

3) We told the owner verbally and in messages through VRBO that 50% refund was excess but we thought $150 was reasonable for the inconvenience/stress. We have received neither further communications from the owner nor any refund.

Our Favourite Desert Princess Condo....Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting condos and villas at Desert Princess for 25 years and have finally found "the one"! The cleanliness was beyond perfection! I've always had to clean upon arrival...not this place! Nothing to do but enjoy your vacation...Fresh new bed linens, new towels, kitchenware, extremely comfy beds, and tastefully decorated. Can't understand one of the reviews below regarding a noisy vent outside of the bedroom. We didn't hear a thing! This condo truly has the best panoramic view at D.P. It's stunning! It doesn't get any better than this! It's also a treat to sit on the beautiful patio at night, barbecue and watch the sun set behind the mountains. Also, the barbecue is new and it does a great job. John, the owner is a wonderful, decent, hard working guy and is a pleasure to deal with! I can honestly say that we didn't have one single issue and if we ever did, we know he would resolve things ASAP! We have already rebooked for the Fall and next Spring and are looking forward to our return. This condo deserves 10 stars, not 5! We would highly recommend it...It's a real gem...we love it!

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The view was awesome. The condo was very comfortable and it was clean .

John ( the owner) was very nice to talk to and got back to me when I had questions. The golf course is beautiful and I loved playing on it.

I would recommend this condo to my friends.

Condo Update Needed!

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo for 3 weeks in March 2015. Upon our arrival at the condo I noticed that the cover to the thermostat was lying on the table. I made a mental note and wondered if the previous renter had problems with the AC. We kept on adjusting the thermostat waiting for the cooling to start. We decided to wait one more day and give it a chance to start cooling, it didn't happen. March last year was unusually hot and we were starting to feel uncomfortable. I called the owner, he sent out repair men, they put in a new air conditioning system. I found the barbcue to be disgusting, it dripped grease and was really filthy. It should definitely have been replaced. I contacted the owner with my concern and his reply was sorry I was at the condo the week before. I used it and forgot to clean it?? The patio table was very wobbly and in need of repair or replacement. I again contacted the owner asking if he had tools so my husband could try and fix it. His reply to that was he didn't have any tools and to ask the air conditioning repair guys if they had tools!! The vent in the bathroom next to our bedroom squealed at various times at a high pitch making sleep impossible. I wanted to use the vacuum but found the bag beyond full, it needed to be replaced. Again I phoned the owner wondering where the new vacuum cleaner bags were, he said he didn't know. The toilets also needed to be replaced, they took forever to flush. Our daughter came down to spend a week, she said the bed in the other bedroom was very uncomfortable.

The owners lack of experience regarding the rental of his condo was very evident and frustrating. Aside from him replacing the air conditioning the other issues were not addressed.

I will not rent from him again nor will I recommend this condo to anyone.

The condo has a great location.

Owner's Response: We find it very disheartening to have been given a less than average review. The hearting and air system did go out and we called a Heating and Air Co. immediately. They were out the next day to look at it and replaced it with a brand new system the following day. I don't know what more we could have done. We have never heard any weird noises from the vent in the master bedroom or had any complaints from other renters. The table was wobbly and the bbq was older, although it still worked just fine, we have replaced both items with a brand new table and bbq. The guest bedroom has very nice pillow tops and we have had family and friends stay with us that have actually commented on how comfortable the beds are. As a courtesy to our renters we always make sure there is toilet paper, paper towels and garbage bags in case they can't get to the store right away. We have a cleaning service come in and clean and we count on them to replace things like cleaning supplies and vaccumm bags since we live 8 hours away. I feel we were very accommodating when your husband become ill and we were on the phone with you several times rescheduling the date that you could arrive. When you decided you couldn't stay for the entire time you had booked, we reimbursed you for that time missed which we were not obligated to do and waived any late cancellation fees. We have very happy renters, several have rebooked with us and tell us that "YES!" we do have the best view.
