My husband I myself have visited Palm Springs on other occasions but this was the first time staying at a condo rather than a hotel. We are so happy that we chose the Crown Jewel. As soon as we walked through the front door, we immediately were blown away by the fact that the pictures we had viewed showing the interior of the condo was exactly how they appeared. The stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances and the cabinetry were the exact duplication of our own home kitchen and we immediately felt like we were "home". We arrived late in the evening and so we didn't get to appreciate the amazing views of that glorious San Jacinto mountain directly across the street until we woke up and raised up the blinds. WOW - I cannot even find any other suitable or fitting words to describe the views, except to say WOW - totally breathtaking! The condo came equipped with everything and much more than you would ever expect to need or want; in fact, the owners thought of every possible desired essential and left nothing out by chance. The towels that are provided are so thick and lush, actually, better quality towels than I have at my own home. The swimming pool (one of four in the complex) was directly beneath our balcony and we totally took advantage of the beautiful hot weather every day by starting our day relaxing by the pool. Almost every day that we were at the Crown Jewel (2 weeks), my husband and myself had the pool to ourselves. We met some really nice people that own their own condo's at the Palm Springs Villa's and we quickly became friends. The Crown Jewel is definitely a "home away from home" and we are excited to be welcomed back when we expect to return to the desert in May, 2015. Upon our arrival, my husband was so pleased to receive complimentary Perrier water (as was our preferred choice), although a nice bottle of wine was offered by the owners as well. David and Jennifer certainly made our vacation extremely memorable and enjoyable and totally comfortable and we are grateful for their care and consideration in presenting their Crown Jewel condo as the the identical description that it has been advertised as. What you see is definitely what you get.....well worth it! Thank you David and Jennifer, Chris and Melanie Wilson (Fort Erie, Ontario Canada).
