Great for relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

This was our 8th stay at John’s lovely home and we had a great time as usual. The house has a very private pool area with amazing mountain views. We had freshly picked grapefruit which was super sweet. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils should you want to cook - there is a great BBQ in the back. There is a supermarket less than 5 mins drive away and downtown is less than 10 mins drive time. We would recommend this house and will be booking our next trip soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice comments. I value my many repeat renters and strive to make every guest want to return. The best complement a homeowner can receive is an email from a prior guest saying they want to come back.

Lovely, quiet getaway retreat

  • 5 of 5

This sweet home is nestled on a quiet neighborhood cul-de-sac. It has a fully equiped kitchen, modern W/D, WIFI, comfortable bedrooms and living space with nice furnishings and lots of natural light. It's easy to stay cool inside during the heat of the day. You can see the beautiful colors of the sunrise on the San Gabriel mountains just outside on the patio. There are a lot of different seating areas dotted around the property, which seems to go on and on around the house. We had two largish dogs along and they had plenty of running room and kept cool on the glazed terra cotta interior floors. The pool is not for laps, but is refreshing and clean and has a nice jacuzzi built in. The house is only a couple of blocks away from main arteries to Palm Springs city center or I-10 or the rest of the valley. Nice playgrounds and grassy dog parks are only about 10 minutes away. This was a winner in our books.

Great for a short weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect size for four adults and our little baby. We had a great time. The landscaping around the pool area is beautiful. The views of the mountains were very relaxing. There are stores near by. Great location. Over all, we had a great time!

Lovely Palm Springs Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a really relaxing and wonderful time at this home. Our daughter wanted to be in the pool all day ;-) Aside from the pool, we loved the gorgeously landscaped yard, and the house is really sweet and comfortable. We did have a bit of trouble with the grill -- it wouldn't turn on easily and then when it finally did go on it burned all our food in about 3 seconds. I think something might be wrong with the heat control because we couldn't get it to work right and gave up. But we had plenty of other food to eat so it was fine. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed the house and thanks for letting me know about the grill. I'll look into that right away. We strive to keep everything in good working order. Hope you'll return soon. John

Nice house...great garden/pool!

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in California included a lot of travelling so we booked John's house for a few days to relax for a while. The booking process was straightforward with good dialogue with John all through. The house was in a very peaceful location with shops a few minutes away by car. The house has everything you could need. The garden and pool were really nice, very private, just perfect! Palm Springs is a lovely town, very relaxed and friendly. During our holiday we visited San Francisco, L.A. & Las Vegas, and my wife enjoyed our stay at Desert Luna the most! No problems whatsoever; our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay for longer! If we are ever in this part of the world again, we would love to return here! Highly recommended!
