My wife and I and our three girls (aged 16, 13 and 9) stayed at the amazing, interior and exterior showpiece of a house; the Come Fly with me in the hot Desert Summer of 2014. I'm not sure what has taken me so long to reply, to write this review: This place is a TEN. There is so much perfect about it, I don't have time in this space to provide all of the information that impressed and made us smile. From the cofee machine to the pavers in front and back, from the clean manucured landscape to the edgy and somehow appropos sketches and artwork,to the perfectly maintained pool, patio and barbecue, we loved it.
All I could think of when we had been in the refreshing, visual show piece (it looked like an art museum to me) ...after looking through so many VRBO properties in Palm Springs and (other desert cities) was: where is the Sixth Star. I'd read through three, four and five star reviews. This place deserves a sixth ! My wife and I knew that we were traveling with our climate sensitive daughters (we live in San Francisco Bay Area, the climate is not too difficult), our risk was taking a chance on Palm Springs in August. More than a few people warned us: they need 'chillers in the pools it is so hot there int he summer....it's so hot, the lizards duck for cover, it is so hot, the newspapers melt to the pavement, (and so on)...we took a chance; in large part because of helpful reviews on VRBO (hence, my late attempt to provide feedback, praise and to inform). Immediately upon walking in, from the fantastic, bold, artsy wall pieces, to the furniture, vases, sculptures, sketches and the giant pink pay phone on the wall, everything about Come Fly with me made us comfortable, brought us together to lounge and watch t.v., to read in the relaxing heat of the desert summers and brought us together late late in the night playing in 80 plus degree temps in the pool (often til midnight.)
Thank you for your artistic vision, your meticulous sense of maintenance and style and, most importantly for letting others share in your vision of a true get away and escape. We will be back!
