Great common area for gathering, Short walk from multiple pools, & Cute interior design

  • 5 of 5

Our group enjoyed this rental very much. The main living area combines the kitchen, dining, and family room in one open space making it easy to congregate and spend time together. The design throughout was really cute and well-done, including comfy beds and plenty of extra linens and towels. Only complaint was that the AC had a hard time keeping up with us, but it was a hot weekend and we were at max. capacity. Cleaning supplies were well stocked other than dish soap but no biggee since there is a dishwasher. Overall great place for the location, price, cute interiors with comfy beds, plus very professional and friendly owners.

Nicely decorated.

  • 4 of 5

The weather was so hot that we couldn't use the outdoor space which was a shame as it looked nice. Loved the bikes. The towels and bed linens could use an update. The carpets are stained. Our host was very accessible which was great although the handyman never turned up to fix the master closet door.

Owner's Response: Hi Joan, We are so glad you chose to stay with us in Palm Desert. I'm very sorry the closet door was not repaired quickly. Our maintenance man is very busy during the season. I will check with our house keeper on the sheets and towels......we just purchased very nice sheets for all the beds and two sets for the master several three weeks ago. I will now replace the towels due to your request. Thanks for keeping us on our toes. Melanie and Chris

Don't miss world-famous Joshua Tree National Park to enjoy the beauty of the spindly trees that give the park it's name. Beautiful granite outcroppings and gloriours sunsets are just a few of the many things to discover here. Try your luck at Coachella Valley's many casinoes or take the Tram to the top of Mount San Jacinto. Once atop enjoy dining, hiking and panoramic views of the valley below. Window shopping at El Paseo Drive and pop in to the many art galleries and stop for a bite to eat at wonderful restruants will fill a day or afternoon. Do check out the many festivies and free concerts the area has to offer and Palm Desert First Weekend has a myriad of activies to offer. As you can see if you get board with the abundance of sunshine and golf there is always something going on in the Desert.
