"A friend and I were lucky to be invited at the last minute to Desert Trip, the series of rock music concerts held near Indio), and many places jack up their rates for events to absurd levels. Tracy responded to our inquiry very promptly and she is a warm and affable owner. It was a pleasure communicating with her, and she went out of her way to help us finalize arrangements quickly even though we had time constraints. Tracy and Dave offer their beautiful condo at unbeatable (and fair!) rates.
The unit is immaculate, the rooms are spacious, with comfortable beds, high ceilings, fresh linens and lots of nice new towels. Plenty of closet and drawer space, isolation between bedrooms for privacy, cable TV, high speed Internet... pretty much everything you need in the kitchen.
The complex in which it is located is well situated for any events in the area, and I'm sure there are ample other activities around (but we spent all our time at the concerts, so I can't speak to that from first hand knowledge). There is a very nice pool located just behind the condo. The complex was nearly deserted, so we didn't see but a couple of people there during our visit. A manned, gated entrance (and a separate remote-controlled gate) make the location about as secure as a place can be. The unit is on the upper floor, so it may not be for anyone who's staircase-averse -- I enjoyed sitting on the upper level balcony overlooking the pool, though.
There's a Ralph's grocery and a pharmacy nearby, which is very convenient. Although there are no guarantees about provided supplies, there are the usual needs (soap, paper towels, tissues, cleaning supplies), and we were pleasantly surprised to find a number of staples in the kitchen (sugar, salt, pepper, and a host of other dry goods in the pantry) and condiments in the fridge. We left behind a half a bottle of scotch... and others had had the same idea, so there's that little bonus. The A/C works well (which is probably the most critical thing if you're in Palm Desert during a warm week) as do all the other appliances. If I ever return to that area, I'd be very happy to rent this vacation home again. If you stay here, you won't regret it."
