FABULOUS VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Our family including our 8-month grandson had a wonderful 2 week vacation. The house was very clean and well stocked down to the spices. Location was convenient to downtown Palm Springs and airport 5 minutes away although never disturbing to our enjoyment of the swimming pool. Everything we needed to enhance our stay was there and any questions were quickly answered by Francine.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a girls' weekend and had a wonderful time. The whole house is beautiful and incredibly clean and it's one of the best-stocked kitchens I've ever encountered. The pool is HUGE and the poolside areas are perfect for lounging. We LOVED it. Thanks for a great stay!

FUN FOR EVERYONE! ADULTS, TODDLER, AND A DOG ALL LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here over Mother's Day weekend and had an amazing time! My parents who are about ready to retire, along with my 20 something brother, my 30 something husband and myself all agreed that this was a place that we would definitely return to. You could spend an entire weekend here and never leave. We only went out to dinner one night and the rest of our meals we cooked--although you could easily head out for every meal as it as very close to everything including the main strip. The kitchen is well equipped with all the little things you would need and some of the extras as well. Highlights of our trip were: making smores using the outdoor fire pit at night, lounging around and in the pool, barbecuing, playing croquet, and winding down on the couch with some Netflix at night. The house has clean modern decor and lots of beautiful giant windows for enjoying natural light. It's a lovely property and the pictures honestly do not do it justice. Additionally, it was clean and we were very comfortable in all areas of the home. The owner was very accommodating to our needs and readily available to answer all our questions and requests before our stay. Next time we head over to Palm Springs this is where we are staying.

THE BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
The minute we walked into this house we knew it was great. The owner took the best care of every thing, inside and out. The backyard and pool area where to die for. The house was clean, modern but with a little flare of the past.All the appliances where top notch. The beds very comfy. It had a real homey feeling.
Walk to down town was 35 minutes, airport 2 minutes away, grocery store 2 minutes away. Just about everything we needed was close at hand.
We did not have to worry about anything the owner made sure everything was taken care of. This house or home is truly a diamond. Not to stay would be wrong. If I could we would give it 10 out of 5 stars, 5 is just not enough.
Thank you for making our vacation a dream come true.

FABULOUS LADIES' WEEKEND

Fabulous Ladies' Weekend
  • 5 of 5
We were a group of two 40-something friends and our mothers (we've known each other for almost 40 years) and it was our 8th annual mother-daughter weekend. This home was absolutely wonderful from the moment we opened the front gate and could see through the lovely home to the large sparkling pool. The location is convenient -- straight east of the heart of downtown. The home is decorated very stylishly (lots of fun, quirky artwork and cool furniture), is exceptionally clean, and is stocked with pretty much everything a group could possibly need (well, obviously you'll need to bring your own groceries but the kitchen actually had spices, oil and some of those basics!). We had every appliance and dish we could ask for in the kitchen (except a cocktail shaker, which is no big deal) and the bathrooms had plenty of towels and even little extras like cotton swabs.

Francine is very friendly and was quick to answer any question and address any problem (only one minor problem that we brought up and she had someone on it super fast!)

We loved walking and running around the nearby neighborhoods, hanging by the pool, sitting by the fire pit on a chilly evening, renting bikes downtown and cruising around the city, and sleeping in the comfy beds.

I would recommend this house to a friend or relative... but only a good one because I want it cared for like it deserves and I want to be able to rent it when I want. ;)
