UNTITLED

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in this condo, which was spacious, nicely decorated, quiet, and well located in Palm Desert. Sitting outside on the patio in the late afternoon was especially enjoyable. We had all of the conveniences of home. We hope to return soon.

DON'T GO BY THE PHOTOS.....INVESTIGATE FURTHER!!!

Don't go by the photos.....investigate further!!!
  • 1 of 5
We have rented via HomeAway before & this is the first time we felt "taken". We had high hopes that although the condo was not modern it would be clean & comfortable..not the case. Coincidentally, we played golf with a couple who had rented the condo three years ago. They said they were also very disappointed & had the same issues we had.
Do not go by the photos. We had friends over only once, but no others as we were embarrassed by the state of the condo. Unfortunately we felt trapped. How does one find another suitable rental when it high rental season?
Although the condo looks fine from the street, as soon as you enter the gate you can see it is in bad need of maintenance. All of the cupboards in kitchen, bathrooms, etc, were extremely dirty and in a complete state of disarray. We used the 1st week of our vacation organizing & cleaning. Subsequent renters will benefit from our work. We had to purchase a lot of cleaning supplies to do the job. The cleaning equipment(vacuum, brooms, mops, etc.) should be thrown out. Pots & pans are in terrible shape. Kitchen supplies (cutlery, etc) missing or needs to be replaced.
The condo & furnishings are more than just dated. The carpets are filthy, particularly the bathroom carpet around the toilet. The furnishings are worn out & very uncomfortable. The sofa is dirty and smelly. Most accessories are in very poor shape including the picture over the sofa which has a hole in it. The beds are old & mattress need replacing. The bedding was terrible. The sheets in the master bedroom are pilled & it is like sleeping with sand in the bed. The coverlet, pillows, etc are torn & smell old & musty. Lots of towels & sheets but very disorganized & some are not usable.
The BBQ was filthy when we arrived and the garbage cans were overflowing. The upholstered patio furniture is extremely dirty and uncomfortable. We were afraid to use the BBQ & fire pit.
The only positive is the location. Close to amenities & the pool but you can find far better than this condo.

Owner's Response: For 10 years, we have listed our weekend condo with Home Away and this is the first negative comment we have received.

We rent to all different types of people. You must understand that this is not a hotel. It is our vacation home that we share with others during the season. We keep it organized and clean so that our guests can enjoy the condo as much as we do. It is a place that we love and like to share it with others.

We pride ourselves on getting our vacation home ready, from preparing the welcome basket of goodies to the cleaning and stocking of supplies for you to use. This has produced a long history of positive comments as you can see from the positive comments here.

We disagree with many of your comments that seem to be more vindictive than helpful. We have not received these types of complaints from others and some I am hearing for the first time from you, despite emails and phone calls during your stay. If we knew of these, we would have corrected them immediately, as we did with the cleaning.

Regarding your specific notes, my understanding was that we had worked out your issues during your stay. After you initially contacted me, we paid for a second cleaning lady to do a thorough cleaning and fix any problems that you had described at the time. It was not necessary to clean the condo yourself, especially on vacation! Our regular cleaning people bring their own professional level equipment and supplies, so we keep only basic cleaning items at the condo.

Simple issues, likes sheets, towels etc. we would have addressed immediately had we known. Regarding the beds, we usually receive compliments on the king beds as they have very comfortable foam toppers on them. The antique Japanese silk painting is simply too old and fragile and we will remove it (above the LR sofa in the photos).

I personally inspected the condo before you arrived and made sure that all was in order and organized. I ensured all the baseboards and light switches were cleaned. There was no disorganization of household items that I observed. The dishes, pans, glasses, silverware, books, movies, sheets and towels were all organized and in clean cupboards. There are more than enough cutlery and utensils. Guests reorganizing things is fine with us.

Please email me the name of the “couple who had rented the condo three years ago”. I will contact them. I will also ask former renters to post reviews here so we can get a more balanced opinion of the property.

RESTFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful condo! It had everything we needed for our stay. It's spacious, bright and airy and the beds were so comfortable!

The location is fabulous in many ways. Monterey Avenue is a connector so it's a short hop to every kind of shopping you can imagine and central to Palm Springs and La Quinta. On the golf course, it's right across from the pond with the fountain. We spent mornings having a leisurely breakfast on the patio entertained by the hummingbird and small birds darting here and there. That, coupled with the calming sounds of the fountain made it a perfect place to relax. So relaxing that I've never had such leisurely breakfasts .... ahhhh.

Email communication with Carl was quick and effective. He was a pleasure to deal with and had a manner that made me feel comfortable from the start. I felt that he truly cared about us having the best vacation possible.

Monterey Avenue is really Hwy 74 and driving West takes you to the mountains where there are great vistas of the valley. I would definitely recommend that. We also enjoyed the Thursday night market in Palm Springs, the weekend market in Palm Desert at the College of the Desert and the small Wednesday market at the Palm Desert Visitors Center was great for picking up vegetables. It was there that we had our first "date shake" and yes, it was delicious.

On my next visit I would definitely like to golf. Something I didn't get to on this trip.

Would I recommend this condo to a friend? Absolutely! Without hesitation.

GREAT VIEW, GREAT LOCATION, GREAT AMMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
As soon as we entered this condo we knew it was one of the most comfortable and relaxing places we've ever visited. It is beautifully decorated with all of the ammenities. We could not have asked for finer accomodations! This condo overlooks the golf course with breath-taking views of the mountains. The pool and jacuzzi are just across the street. The club house with a restaurant and bar are at the most a 3 minute walk. We experienced one of the most relaxing weekends ever.

GOLF VACATION, NOVEMBRE 2007

  • 5 of 5
Condo as we saw on the pictures.
well located on a par three golf hole.
condo clean and well maintained.
we had all meals outside on the patio table. the fire table was used at night to keep us warm.
the outside pool was right close to the condo and easy to use.
The area is well kept and the people around were very nice to us. One of them organize us a game of golf at the Mountery club which is a private club and very nice. planning to return when possible

FANTASTIC STAY IN PALM DESERT

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here and thought it was wonderful. Great amenities in both the condo and the country club, perfect location and so much to do. It was really comfortable and had everything our family could need. I especially loved the king size bed in the master bedroom, with Egyptian cotton sheets and a memory foam mattress-it was hard to get up and do all the activities in the area, since it was so comfy. We loved having wine in the evening, sitting around the fire pit on the patio and watching the sunset. We also barbecued on the patio. The jacuzzi and pool temperatures were just right, too. We loved it!
