Recent Deserts reviews

  • Gem in the desert

    "I have now had several excellent rental experiences at this property, and feel kinda bad that it took me this long to write any review. Over the past 5 years my group of golf friends have stayed at this excellent condo on the 11th hole of the frustrating Stadium Course 3 times, and have always enjoyed our experience. The owners are very responsive and conscientious, and have never failed to provide everything we needed to have a successful and enjoyable trip. Well, except for better golf swings...not their fault. After a long day of having Pete Dye break our spirit with his golf design, we had a wonderful place to return to and lick our wounds. The condo is in a great location, with easy access to both PGA West and the town of La Quinta. There are many grocery and other shopping options within 5 minutes, and plenty of restaurants if one chooses to abandon the very well-stocked kitchen. The condo is nicely decorated and appointed (not typical rental fare), with plenty of home comforts to make a person really question needing to leave to go anywhere else for dinner. Fire up the grill while you watch other unfortunate souls teeing off on the 11th hole right next to you. You can relax...their torture is only halfway over! The pool is a short walk across the expansive side yard (avail yourself of the wheeled cooler we left there 5 years ago to take some beverages along) and seemingly cleaned daily. It is a refreshing retreat - take some tunes to play to drown out the cries of anquish coming from the nearby 18th tee. So to summarize, I cannot recommend This rental property highly enough. This is a luxurious condo with great amenities, close to everything and private enough to isolate yourself from it all. Get a great night's sleep here, and you, too, can wake up refreshed and foolishly thinking that today, finally, you will bring a PGA West golf course to its knees."

  • Perfect Condo, great owner, highly recommended

    "We rented for two weeks in mid-July to work remote (from the condo) while house hunting. Previous reviews are correct when they say it has “everything you need”. For other condos in the past I had to bring spices/ingredients myself or buy them. I was delighted to find everything I needed. The condo had tons of spices/seasonings as well as other food “ingredients” (olive oil, flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, etc.) In the refrigerator I found salad dressings, condiments, salsa, even coffee. I do not know if Mark left these there or if past renters left them there but I LOVED the array and abundance. I appreciated it so much that when I ran out of plastic wrap I not only bought some but I also bought plastic bags and foil and added to the collection to help out future renters. There are even reusable shopping bags and a soft side cooler (cold packs in the freezer) for shopping. The unit is exactly as pictured. It’s on the top floor and very quiet (no one above walking around) and faces south (bedrooms face north). I loved the views of the mountains as I started my work day at the dining room table and the wi-fi was great and NEVER failed me. We had two bedrooms and two bathrooms so my cousin came to visit for a few days. She loved the condo and the complex so much she decided she wants to buy a unit at Canyon Shores. That’s how nice this place is. Lastly, some comments about Mark. Whenever I rent from someone the first time I get nervous. I want to reassure any future renters that he is very easy to deal with and very reliable. I was nervous about just depositing a check into his account without the protection of a credit card. My worries were unfounded. Within days (and weeks in advance of my rental) the key card to the gate for the complex arrived in the mail and he included a stamped envelope for me to return it after my stay. A few days before the rental I got an email from Mark with the code for the front door. By the way, not having a key was wonderful. No worries about remembering to take the key with to the pool or getting locked out. Everything worked out perfectly with Mark. What few questions I had he answered quickly via text or email. A week after we got back he sent me a check with my deposit refund. If you like the pictures and it’s available, do not hesitate."

  • Wonderful Stay

    "This is a wonderful place to spend time at a pace of your choosing. The location is perfect, easy access to all conveniences. The condo is perfectly appointed and wants for nothing. The grounds are stunning to say the least, by day and by night. This is one of the places where we are sad to leave. The owner is very accommodating and responsive if required. Our family are already trying to pick a time for a return trip in 2017. Thanks Jim it was great!"

  • Our Favorate Getaway

    "We just finished our second "getaway" at this Ram's Hill home and couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. This isn't a rental house...it's a HOME. From the moment you walk in you feel comfortable, welcome and safe. The home is well taken care of, well equipped - everything you could need in the kitchen - and offers gorgeous views and endless peace and quiet. We pulled into the driveway, got out of our car, and were immediately struck by the quietness of the area. Although Borrego Springs isn't exactly known for it's crowds or nightlife, the location of this home, away from the "downtown" area, is perfect. Rosemary, the owner of the property, is easily accessible, responsive, and very accommodating. Thank you for opening your home to us - we look forward to our next visit!"
