Guestbook comments from the manager

"Thank you for sharing your incredibly beautiful home with us! This is the first place we have stayed where we truly feel at home! Not only is your place impeccably furnished, it is so well organized and thought out. You can certainly feel the love you put into your home!

I spent hours playing with my niece in the playroom and enjoying "hanging" with my college boys in the pool.

We so hope to be back next year.

The Spanglers from LA and New Mexico,

Thanksgiving, 2009"

A wonderful week at El Nido - great for families, but expensive

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely week in Palm Springs staying at El Nido. We have two young children (4 and 1) and the house was perfect for them! The play room had toys, books, and games, and the nursery was just right for my little one to have everything he needed to sleep comfortably. It was great to not have to worry about a crib. The house was also great for the three adults on our trip – lots of space and privacy.

We spent every afternoon in the pool and hot tub, and it was heaven. Truly beautiful backyard. We had one small problem where water to the pool wasn't properly turned off after pool maintenance - Acme sent someone out in minutes to fix it. Great customer service. It would be nice to have a few pool toys and floats, but that was a small thing.

Acme was also great in the time leading up to the booking. I had lots of questions and they got back to me promptly and accurately, and clearly tried to make things work great for us.

The kids also loved Ruth Hardy park – right across the street, easy to get to, and a great playground and green space. The “mini playground” in the yard was not very nice and the kids didn’t use it, but that didn’t matter since the park was so close. Just good for folks to know that wasn’t a highlight.

The grapefruit tree was one of my favourite parts of the house - delicious! The kitchen had everything we needed, the wireless Internet worked well, and the free local calling came in handy for taxis, restaurants, etc.

We rented a few items from Desert Baby Rentals (kids' life jackets, a high chair) and Acme was great in that respect as well - having someone there to meet them and make sure the drop-off and pick-up went smoothly.

The setting would also be perfect for families with older kids, girls’ trips, and the pool/hot tub at night offered a lovely romantic setting. We loved the house – very comfortable and family friendly.

To me, the only downside was the price. Especially because the extra fees got a bit pricey when you added it all together. I understand that cleaning and utilities (and taxes) are expensive, but it was a lot when everything gets added together. I see the fees are also up quite a lot this year (the rental fee and the other add-on fees), which is too bad.

Overall, this house was excellent for a young family like ours. We definitely hope to stay here again!

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!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

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.
