A 5 Star diamond rated home and location.

  • 5 of 5

"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.

Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Location but not a 5 star house.

  • 2 of 5

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The first day we discovered that the fridge was full of out of date food and was never cleaned.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.

Owner's Response: This listing is managed by Evolve Vacation Rental. The homeowner's response to this review is below. From years of Vacation Rental ownership I have learned from my experience as well as from other vacation rental owners many of the positive aspects of renting and a few of the negative aspects. One of the few negative aspects is that their are a few renters that are ' Professional Complainers' who report bogus complaints for numerous reasons including the hopes of gaining a discount being granted, etc. This renter reported numerous complaints to me which were promptly responded to within 24 hours over the christmas holidays where the professional Service Company personnel we use reported that the 'PROBLEMS REPORTED ACTUALLY DID NOT EXIST'. This is probably the REASON WHY THE RENTER WAS UNAVAILABLE FOR THE SERVICE CALL and instead our "on site Manager" met the outside service technicians to assist and verify their service response and services provided. In fact, one complaint the renter highlighted (freezer) was never reported to me or our onsite manager probably because --- THE RENTER WAS ADVISED ON CHECK-IN of the freezer repair service needed(small leak in ice maker) that was needed and that it was ALREADY SCHEDULED for repair. The renter personally indicated to me it was NOT A PROBLEM AND of no concern since the small leak had no effect on the freezer/refigerator operation or storage capacity. We have an onsite manager to assist renters should problems arise which occurred with this renter and was available his entire stay CONTRARY TO HIS REPORT. The end results of their stay was the RENTER CREATED MANY HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS OF REPAIR SERVICE CALLS WHERE NO SERVICES WERE REQUIRED. We endeavor to maintain our Palm Springs Hillside Oasis Retreat with ongoing upkeep and maintenance and are able to respond with onsite assistance promptly where services may be needed and at times with our close maintenance watch are able to project when services may be needed.

Ideal location, comfortable, relaxing spa-like setting

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful home and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!
