SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5
This house has something for everyone. It was great! We were a large group of 13 and at no time did this house feel crowded. The kids played in the pool while others played ping pong and the adults just hung out on the porch and in the kitchen having drinks and talking. The place is big, nicely decorated and open and airy. The kitchen was very well organized and had everything we needed and there were plenty of bathrooms to accommodate our large group. The owners of the house were great too. James is a sweetheart making reservations and Kenny greeted us at the house and went over everything about the how to operate A/C, TV, and pool spa. We didn’t bring our “play and stay” for the baby and Kenny had one to us at the house within 15 minutes of our call to him.
Great house! The owner is great! We will be back and recommend this place to others.

A Movie Colony Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5
The house was great and it was our 2nd year in a row coming for Thanksgiving week. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out or be together. Some like to swim, or puzzle, or play ping pong and we use Ruth Hardy Park around the corner quite a bit. The house has everything you need for a great family trip or a large group of friends. Walking distance to the strip and our favorite restaurants too!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with 15 girls for a Bachelorette getaway and we absolutely loved this property! First of all, you're greeted warmly by the property manager, who is so helpful and kind! Second, the property itself is gigantic! There was PLENTY of space for us all to relax, swim, eat, sleep, etc. Lastly, the house was in perfect condition and so clean with any amenity you could think of! We would definitely stay here again and even bring our kids and husbands! ( ; Oh and I almost forgot, the location doesn't not get better! You're minutes from the main strip and across the street from a beautiful park!

Beware

  • 2 of 5
Beautiful house in a fantastic location. Well appointed. Represented well by photos. However our vacation was significantly impacted by several major issues and the response by the property managers. The pool heater stopped working and had to be replaced- a full day job of pool maintenance workers in the yard and two days without pool heat. The hot water tanks went out the following day and we had issues with the thermostat- the furnace kept coming on making the house extremely hot. While the property managers did tend to the maintenance their approach was unprofessional. They repeatedly blamed us for causing problems with the HVAC and hot water heaters. They also sauntered into the house unannounced on several occasions which we found a little unsettling. We were refused repeated requests to speak directly with the property owner to voice our concerns. While we understand that houses have maintenance issues it was the manner in which they were handled that merits concern. The only compensation for the significant disruption in our holiday was a credit for the pool heating- for the days that the heater was broken.
It is unfortunate that such a nice property has management issues- otherwise we would return!

Location, location, location and beautiful too!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 3 nights with a group of 11 young women celebrating my daughter's 30th birthday. I don't think that there could have been a better place to be. I had to make several trips to the airport for arriving and departing guests and it was less than 20 minutes round trip. The pool was lived in except for meal time, a trip up the tramway (again only minutes away and a must do) and a trip to Joshua Tree (45 minute drive). We cooked 2 big dinners at the house which between the kitchen, butler's pantry and barbeque gave us lots of working room. Two sinks and 3 dishwashers made clean up a breeze with always a minimum of 6 in the kitchen and no bumping into each other.

We had a couple of issues which the property manager took care of right away. And I feel confident that my few suggestions, like an additional hair dryer or two, will be put into place.

This place is so cool and just gobbles up a big group. I am pretty darn sure we will be back. Maybe next time my daughter will throw the party for me!

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had our family reunion this past weekend (7/25-7/28/14). The property was beautiful! We did not even have to leave the premises. Our kids swam all day. The backyard was exceptional. Each room (all 7 bedrooms) were extremely clean. The AC unit worked great and withstood the heat of Palm Springs along w/ the many bodies in the house. My family enjoyed the property and we'd be happy to come back! Even both garages have working AC units! The owner was very helpful in answering all our questions. Truthfully, the property looks even better in person than in the pictures! I would highly recommend this property. VERY IMPRESSED W/ THE PROPERTY AND VERY SATISFIED W/ EVERYTHING! Nearby activity I'd recommend: Aerial Tramway. Only a 15 min drive from the property.
