Very nice, well appointed home

  • 4 of 5

We stay for two months in this home and it was clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. The covered patio had a nice table and clean BBQ.Patty was great to work with and we welcomed the opportunity to meet her. The home was convenient to everything the community had to offer and I enjoyed riding my bike to store. If there would be anything I would suggest i would have liked to see the backyard less landscaped with stickers plants and more area to enjoy and get some sun. That is the only reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5. Patty I'm sorry this is so late but I wanted to make sure it got done even if late. Thank you for sharing

Spectacular home in a beautiful community

  • 5 of 5

Home and furnishings are similar to those found in a five star resort. Everything appeared to be new, and it was spotless. Kitchen was well equipped, with all the gadgets needed for nearly any meal. Even little things like storage bags were provided. I arrived very late, so it was nice that starter toiletries were provided as well. The outdoor spaces really set this place apart, there is a nice, protected courtyard and a beautiful covered patio with a large propane grill. The desert landscaping in the backyard is fantastic.
