We were looking for a secluded place to get the guys together for a fun weekend and this place fit the bill. The weather was beautiful in late February. There was a cool desert iguana on the rocks by the grill.
The good points are a big, well stocked kitchen with a big fridge, plenty of dining and TV/movie watching seating for a group of up to 12 people, lots of extra floor space and closets for extra people to sleep in, great views, secluded area, hot tub, and cool rocks to hang out on for sunset.
The bad points included a leaking sink in the hall bath (Danny says he's going to get it fixed ASAP), some stains on the sofas and rugs, a bunch of broken vertical blinds stored in some closets, and being within the view of the security cameras in all of the outside areas.
I'll also have to admit, throughout our stay, I was concerned about the stern warnings in the rental contract about the many ways to lose your $750 security deposit. Rules include a maximum of 8 cars parked in the driveway, maximum of 12 guests ($29 per night for each additional), in after 4 pm, out by 11 am, take your trash with you, and no fire pits. Scanning the reviews, I can't see anyone complaining about their deposit being kept unfairly, and Danny refunded my deposit relatively quickly (2 weeks) after our stay. He also refunded the extra money we paid for additional guests beyond 12 when a couple of friends had to cancel.
Things that could be improved about the place include better instructions for the operation of the surround sound system (we could only get the rear speakers working), it would be great if there were curtains you could close in front of the big windows so you can see the TV in the daytime or just block the sun that comes through very intensely, and the place needs a deep cleaning (windows, carpets, furniture).
To get the most out of your trip, I would recommend bringing your own large trash can, recycling bin, and some heavy contractor bags as you'll need to pack out your trash. I wasn't sure the landfill in Landers was open on Sunday, so we brought trash home to throw away. Bring your own paper towels, extra TP, and some basic cleaning supplies.
