A restful retreat

  • 5 of 5
This home was very well appointed and even though we stayed only a short time, we were able to relax in the pool and jacuzzi. Todd, the manager was there to meet us and show us around which was very helpful. We also enjoyed the clean and modern feel of the decor.

Excellente!

Basically all was very good and as advertised. We arrived a little early on the Sunday and the property manager, Todd, was still there so he showed us around. Beautiful house, nice outside yard, all good. Only minus was the a/c had not been on and it took until the next day to really cool the whole house. But I will say that when I called to inquire about it, Todd was there in literally 5 minutes. I mean the guy must live somewhere near because I hardly had a chance to put the phone down and he was knocking on the door. So, very attentive, and like I say it was really just that it was SO hot that the a/c had to work hard to get that temp down.

What else? The main thing for us was the outside. It was small but very nicely done - very private and has a nice grill that's plumbed in so no gas canisters. So you can go to the local Albertsons and cook chicken or whatever you like every day for lunch. Pool was small but nice - clean and just right. It does get little leaves etc fly in from the breeze but there's a net there and it was fun to jump in and scoop it around in the morning to clean it up on off days in between the pool guys coming along.

The inside is very clean. My wife is a total germ freak so if anything wasn't clean I would soon know about it - but everything was very nice and clean and modern. She liked that the bathroom had separate sinks for all her stuff - a lot of the older properties have only enough room for a single sink in the master, but this had two. Oh, I should mention that the toilet is in the bathroom and it's one of those 'no door' configurations - which was no problem for us married a long time, but if you were not so familiar with each other you'd have to make sure you didn't walk in on one another when taking some time out! :-)

Location is good, very close to PS. There's a lot going on around there now. Even in the off season there was a lot of stuff. The temps hit 115 (!!!) and when we were out shopping or whatever it was 'take your breath away' hot. But we were in Cabo a few weeks later which was only 95 but way more humid, and that was actually more unpleasant that the hot and dry 115 temps in PS.

Stuff to do - if you're into the old Lounge music (as we are) like Sinatra etc then you'll love PS in general. Best place on our trip by far was 'The Nest' in Indio. Crazy place. All ages, no boom boom boom music, really huge fun.

All in all it was excellent. Place great, PS great, would def return...
