Very nice accommodations

  • 4 of 5
This was my family's third vacation in Palm Desert, but the first time staying in this home and Silver Sands community. The rental process was smooth and Adrienne was responsive and easy to work with. The house was clean, spacious, and well maintained for our family of 4. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils, dishes, etc. you would need.

There are several heated pools near the house which is extremely convenient. Tennis courts are a short walk away. We typically played at night. Lighted courts and no one was on them. Courts can be reserved for the mornings which seem to be the preferred time to play in the community. The clubhouse has a brand new fitness center with treadmills and weight machines. Nice addition to the facilities.

The week we were there, the community was very quiet. May be the time of year as I learned that most of the owners are part time residents.

The location is a short drive from Rancho Mirage which has a lot of shops and restaurants. Grocery store and Target are short drives away. There is a community park about a 5 minute drive away that has tennis courts, basket ball courts, and a playground. The park was well maintained as we played tennis there several mornings when the courts at Silver Sands were booked. One afternoon we listened to a concert at the pavilion at the park. There is also a large pool at the park for lap swimming and had slides and spray area for the kids. We did not use that pool, but it looked very nice.

A little thing we found inconvenient is having to get gas for the grill. We knew it was not included, but the canister was completely empty. So it was a bit inconvenient have to go to a location to exchange the tank. The owner did provide a binder with useful local information which included locations where the tank could be exchanged/refilled.

Overall, we were pleased with the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Villa Marbella. I'm glad you found the property well stocked and comfortable for your family. It is nice having so many pools in the community to choose from and two that are very close.

Although I don't play tennis myself, many of those who come to Silver Sands are drawn here by the great courts, tennis pro, and tournaments. The HOA does a fantastic job maintaining them.

You were able to enjoy the "new" fitness center before I ever got a chance to see it. I finally made my way out there and it is quite nice! I plan to add the photos to the listing very soon.

My apologies for the empty propane tank. I can imagine the frustration of getting ready to grill and needing to make run fill it. There used to be two tanks at the property and one somehow disappeared. We hope to one day convert the grill to natural gas so that is not an inconvenience in the future.

Many thanks to you and your family for staying at Villa Marbella and we look forward to your return on your next trip to Palm Desert.

Great family holiday

  • 4 of 5
We had a great family holiday with 2 adult kids and one 5yo grandson. The house and property were ideal for this trip. House was roomy and well equipped. Pool was a minute walk away and well maintained. The location was convenient to all activities and we felt secure in the gated community.
All in all a fabulous trip. Thank you

Very nice stay.

  • 5 of 5
Clean townhouse in a nice location. No noise at all from the neighbors. Gated community with easy access to stores and community tennis courts. The tennis courts were fantastic and the folks running the courts were very accommodating. It was a very trouble-free stay and we would definitely stay there again. Thanks for sharing your lovely townhouse.

great property, beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful grounds with well kept swimming pools. We enjoyed them every day that we were there. The condo has a big, well equiped kitchen and dining room that worked for us to have dinner for 12. We enjoyed sitting outside in the morning, the outdoor furniture was great. Beds and furniture were very comfortable and the condo was clean.

Great Desert Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time staying at Villa Marbella and we'd love to return again. It is well equipt with very comfortable furnishings especially the King bed in the master bedroom. There was plenty of space with our family of 5 and the Wi-Fi was a huge bonus with young boys who enjoy their computer games. We also enjoyed the patio facing the mountains where we could watch the last afternoon light paint the beautiful scape diffent colors. It is a truely beautiful view.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having your family at Villa Marbella once again. The back patio does offer quite a view and we've made it even cozier with new cushions for the seats. Another thing your family will enjoy the next time out is the new TV in the living room. Thanks so much for allowing us to provide your accommodations and we'll look forward to hearing from you again. Best, Adrienne
