Wonderful location and floorplan but needs work

  • 1 of 5

The location and setting for this condo is great. The 3 suites made it very comfortable for our family. The furnishings inside were nice and comfortable. Our family enjoyed the tennis court which was an unusual amenity.

The maintenance of the condo is in very poor shape for example:

1) The wine refrigerator sent out a continual alarm. We had to unplug it to stop the noise

2) Plumbing for the bar and bar refrigerator were sitting on top of the bar

3) The washing machine was broken and although Brian and Angela were very involved by phone in trying to problem solve the issue it was several days before a technician arrived and was not repairable during our stay

4) The water in the kitchen did not get hot unless you ran it for a very long time

5) The outside patio has 2 lounge chairs and one small table with 2 pub chairs. For a condo that can sleep 11, the deck is not well furnished.

6) The inside deck was overgrown and the furniture was not clean. We had to walk through overgrown foliage to get from the garage to the condo

7). The towels are a goodwill collection with only 1 washcloth

8) The Wifi was not operable until our 2nd day.

The sad part is we tried several times to communicate with Brian ahead of our arrival about the bad review they received in April to assure things had been resolved. He never responded nor were issues resolved.

This could be a wonderful rental if the owners would invest in their property and pay more attention to its maintenance. Angela and Brian were most responsive during our rental week but should have resolved the identified issues ahead of time.

This DIY flip looks good initially, but has many issues that need attention .

  • 1 of 5

This is a beautiful location and neighborhood, however this home is not a good choice for family . We had to run the shower for 5 minutes to get the hot water because the pump was not working, waiter 6 hours for the plumber, expensive part needed and was not replace during the next two weeks ! Could not shower children and worried about burns as heat was turned up so high. Almost every door has a lock so we constantly worried about someone getting locked in a room. Maybe that was why there was duct tape over the lock in one bedroom, but I guess we could have entered because the exterior door did not latch. On arrival we had to search for the key because the lock box did not work and was empty, but just look under the mat. Very safe area and probably no one would bother. The remote owner was very responsive , but cell phone reception at the base of the mountains was weak. The kitchen is large, but minimally supplied. We had to go buy a washable cutting board and pitcher. Cooking utensils may have come from the dollar store. However there was a giant espresso machine and toaster. Just not anything to use in the microwave or storage. The gas cook top vented into the kitchen because the fan on the microwave above just blew the exhaust back up into the room. This would not meet code where we come from and certainly makes cooking smell up the whole place. Cool wine fridge. We wondered why it was unplugged when we arrived, but quickly learned when it kept beeping. Fancy ice maker fridge in sunken bar area also unplugged. It did make ice, but leaked onto the floor. Had to unplug that too. We would have enjoyed having an outdoor table and chairs like every other patio. The bar height tiny table and two chairs did not work for more than two people and this house has three bedroom suites.

Maybe the owners should spend a few days here to try out the function of the place. Try using the tiny bed pillows, mismatched plates or raggedy towels and think about how much you are paying . There are so many available rentals to select from this one needs to reduce rates or up the game. Scraping blobs of grout and paint splatters would be a good start. Also making sure that cleaning service does the job would be a start. Owner contact seemed to be responsive, but house is just not ready to be rented until quite a number of issues are resolved.

This is a very comfortable home and easily shared by 2-3 couples.

  • 5 of 5

Even though I was very familiar with Indian Wells Country Club, I was a little wary about renting a house that I had never seen. But it turned out to be one of the nicest homes (for the price) that we've ever rented. It's located in a wonderful gated complex just across from the tennis gardens which was great for us as we were down in Indian Wells to watch the BNP Paribas tennis tournament. The house itself is situated at the foot of the mountains which offers a gorgeous backdrop view, especially in the evenings when the base of the mountains are uplit. We were three couples and the bedrooms not only had their own bathrooms, but were separated nicely from each other for maximum privacy. The kitchen is large and it's very easy to prepare meals in there. It's well equipped with all the right cooking utensils, pots, pans and very pretty serving dishes. In addition to the dining room, there is also a table that seats 6 just next to the kitchen, so there was room to spread out our computers when we weren't having a meal. The living room sofa is a large sectional and comfortable enough for all of us to watch the large screen TV.

But the best part, since we were all tennis players, was the tennis court right in our backyard. What a treat! We played every day and then jumped in the pool afterwards. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you to the owners for providing and maintaining such a nice rental.

Home review

  • 4 of 5

We come every year for the Indian Wells tennis tournament and like to stay nearby. Indian Wells CC provides that convenience. This home is large, everything is new and essentially we (4 of us) enjoyed ourselves immensely. This home is fairly new on the VRBO market and, in my view, is still in a bit of start up mode. We had a couple of operational challenges, but the owner was very responsive and great to deal with. I am sure it only gets better with time.

For the price, it is a super home and we recommend it.
