My husband and I live in Washington, DC. I am a local, having lived inside the beltway (since it's been built, that is) all my life.

We have two sons, away at college. We also have several guinea pigs and box turtles, but they plan to stay at home.

Owner / Property Manager. Acme House Co. purchased this house in 2008

We already owned a charming property (see VRBO listing #169001) in the Ruth Hardy Park neighborhood, perfect for an intimate vacation for my husband and me. When we found this home, a block away, we knew we wanted a larger property where our whole family could gather. We have already enjoyed time here with our sons and their girlfriends. I've set up the house to be prepared for the future when there may be little ones in the picture: crib, toys, and backyard mini-playground and playhouse. We plan to own this home for many years, though, so no rush, boys!

Reviewer Comments:
This house had everything we needed for the 8 of us. Our 3 children had toys, games, colouring pages and a fun playhouse to enjoy. The pool and hot tub were perfect and had ample noodles and loungers. Because the children(5-8 years) had so much to do, we were able to enjoy ourselves too! Picking grapefruits daily for breakfast was fun and delicious. The house is well stocked with dishes and appliances, making it easy to cook at home. The house is also located near many great restaurants. It is also across the street from a park with 8 public tennis courts and a big playground. The beds and bedding are also very comfortable, exceeding our expectations! Overall a great stay!

had a small "incident, with fur and long tail enter house" and the Acme team were right on top of it to remove the problem and went way overboard to extra clean afterward!

Reviewer Comments:
The El Nido home has a nice floor plan, but could use some TLC. Outdoor furniture was lacking, only two plastic loungers were available and this was an issue as we spent the majority of our time out by the pool-even after calling Acme Home and being told more loungers were going to be delivered it never happened, nor did they ever call back to check-
The location is great, a short walk to the main strip, but noisy due to being across the street from the park and a school. Most of the linens should be retired, but the house was clean and had nice decor. Overall I would stay at this house again-only if the property management was changed.
Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us it was pleasure to have you. ACME strives to improve the vacation of each guest that stays with us wanting to make their stay in Palm Springs memorable. We’re sorry the house only had two lounge chairs upon arrival, once we told of the issue we delivered two new lounge chairs within the same day. Whenever ACME receives a request from a guest we do our best to make sure that issue is addressed and fixed with 24 hours.
