"A 5 Star diamond rated home and location in the most delightful and comfortable stay at the Cahuilla Hillside Oasis Retreat this past week. Truly the description of the home and location by the owner is most apt and best describes our experience - it was a most enjoyable stay. Very quiet, lots of privacy and solitude and the seamless transistion of the homes feelings with the outside surrounding, with the many large floor to ceiling windows to the outside sweeping views of the surrounding acreage and scenic desert valley and mountains can rarely be found elsewhere. Large heated pool/Jacuzzi and the fireplaces during the winter was a plus along with the TV's in each room and the surrounding walking areas and local mountain trails.
My husband and I and 3 teen age girls just completed our stay at this fabulous home! We loved the quiet, private location. The house is beautiful, and the grounds and pool are divine. We enjoyed the wonderful hot tub and patio. The location is wonderful, close enough to downtown for enjoying the evenings in town, yet remote enough for peaceful jogging up the canyon. Would love to return to this private retreat.
Firstly I would to say the house is in a great location, very private, and has amazing views. Unfortunately this was spoiled by the poor maintenance issues and the property manager who left the area the day after our arrival.
The first day we discovered that the fridge was full of out of date food and was never cleaned. The freezer was also full and had a leak for the ice cube maker that formed a frozen water fall and covered all the frozen food items. I was surprised that the property manager said this was a new discovery, clearly this was ongoing issue for some time. I took pictures as evidence of the conditions of the fridge and freezer. The property manager said he would have someone fix this but no one came.
On day two the master bath toilet stopped working and this was not repaired until 3 days later.
On day three the hot tub pump switch broke and was not repaired, Luckily I figured out how to operate manually.
On day four we discovered the pool heater had not been working and this was never repaired during our entire stay.
There were also issues with not being able to latch the sliding doors and exterior lighting. They were resolved but by this time I had become tired of troubleshooting for the property manger, calling, and sending e-mails so I stopped complaining.
This is such a wonderful property with huge potential to cater to people looking for a five star experience but it needs a big injection of TLC.
I have rented many vacation homes and this place has not lived up to my expectations. I will be back to Palm Springs next year because we had such a great time hiking, biking, dining, and touring around but for my money I will look for a other suitable accommodations.
Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay at this clean, comfortable home in quiet Cahuilla Hills. We loved the privacy, the quiet and the incredible views from this hill-top location. Centrally located but removed from the busier areas of Palm Springs. Patio, pool, jacuzzi were wonderful, kitchen was well-equipped, spacious and bright with floor to ceiling windows. Bill welcomed us warmly and gave us a very in-depth tour of the home and tips on local places to hike, run, visit, eat, etc. We will definitely come back when we return to Palm Springs!
We had a wonderful,reflective,regrouping and relaxing experience at Bill's house. The view and scenery were fantastic>evening as well. The house itself was a great location with privacy and lots of space . Some refurbishing is in the near future but that is purely cosmetic as it is where it is situated that makes it great.The weather in Palm Springs was also ideal in January.Thank you Bill for being a phone call away and making us welcome.
My husband and I have rented a few guest type homes over the last few years. This one was far the best! The location, the design of the home etc. We felt very relaxed and energized all at the same time! Would stay there again!
Best parts of our stay:
1) we were able to walk out the back door and hike on the awesome trails on the surrounding mountain.
2) we had a breathtaking view of the whole valley.
3) the bed was very comfortable which seems to always be an issue for my husband but wasn't on this trip!
I desperately searched and found the tag on the master bedroom pillow so I could purchase one as it was so comfortable!
4) the owner greets you with the keys and makes you feel very welcome!
5) dinner and shopping in the town was just down the road and around the bend.
6) the pool and jacuzzi were amazing.
7) the neighbors lemon tree down the hill was pretty interesting...and the flowers and plants around the house.
8) the kitchen had everything you need and more!
9) the whole side of the house had windows from the floor to ceiling that opened up to a breathtaking view!
10) we loved all the privacy we had.... we needed to connect and re-energize and I'm happy to say we were successful!!!
