too many instructions - accusing me of having cat in house (i do not like cats) no refunded deposit

  • 1 of 5

the house was beautiful but the geese were all over outside (dirty on patio and pool)

too many instructions ( if they knew we were arriving, they should have had the water turned on by their helper, the decking should have been cleaned of the poop and also the pool) i have been insulted by the owner accusing me of having a cat on premises (this is so far from the truth - i do not like cats)

in the contract it stated no animals (i informed my one daughter that if she brought her little puppy

i would lose my deposit) in the paperwork upon arriving, the owner tells you to lie and say that you are friends of theirs, rules are that you may not have a rental unless it is monthly. if this were my friend, i would hate to meet my enemy. house is great but watch out for the contract.

Owner's Response: This is the first time in 5 years and dozens of guests, we have not returned in full the security deposit. As for the water to the house it is off for safety precautions when the home is empty. To turn it on is a simple action of turning a ball valve 90 degrees with very easy access to it, so it does not make sense to hire my helper guy to do something that the guest can do in a few seconds. As for the geese and mess they may have made, I did not know they were there to begin with. When she called me the evening they arrived I called my helper guy and he stopped first thing in the morning to power wash the deck before he went to work. I also called the pool guy to clean the pool. She says “too many instructions”; I have had many guests say they liked my thoroughness of the contract for it is very good allowing for no confusion. She says that she is to “lie” about me being friends of our house guests. I do indeed consider our house guests friends unless they prove to me otherwise. My wife and I were the ones who arrived following her departure prior to the cleaning help arriving. I did not return the damage deposit due to multiple issues: the water main not shut off on her departure, she did not bring in the trash bins in a timely manner per the contract and incurred a citation of $25 from the HOA due to this which she did not inform me of, damaged the boat which has required 8 hours plus for repairs and expense, did not cover the boat with the tarp properly, did not plug the power cord into the boat to charge the batteries, had a cat or dog in our home (I found paw prints on the desk top which I sent her photos of) which is a direct breach of the contract and says if this happens the security or damage deposit shall be forfeited. We do take great care of our home and strive to have all our guests have a wonderful visit. During our stay here we drained the pool acid washed the pool and had the grout redone around all the stones on the side of the pool. I also had a new filter pump installed when I noticed a small leak in the housing of the old pool filter pump. We also bought new dishes since we found many broken ones when we arrived. Over the years we have had wonderful guests in our home with this rare exception. We do not tolerate smoking or pets and shall continue to do so. We simply ask our guests to honor the contract and in doing so treat our home with care and respect as if it were their own. – Cordially, the Owner

January Stay in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property; well appointed--very clean and well maintained. Nice layout with separation of bedrooms for greater privacy. We were three families with kids and 4 young grandkids. We used the separate living room as the "play" room giving the adults a little "space"! Great kitchen with everything we needed to cook for a week. The owner gave detailed instructions on everything including operating the spa/pool which was the center of activities. Even the light switches are labeled which was appreciated! We loved the view of the lake and took the electric boat out daily. It's a bonus that the property is relatively close to shopping.

Multi generation family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just got back home from a wonderful week at this beautiful home. Three generations shared food and fun, the pool and hot tub. And additional family members and friends came over to visit. The kitchen was ample for food preparation for a crowd and we "made do" for our wheelchair guy using the hall bathroom. It was easy for him to get around in the house and enjoy the outside as well. The listing description was accurate and the pictures showed us what the home looked like but it was more beautiful and spacious when we were actually there to see it. Our daughter made all the arrangements with the owners and we would most definately come back to this home again. Thank you so much..

We stayed in this lovely Lake LaQuinta home for 2 weeks to celebrate our fathers 100th birthday. What a great house for such a party. We had our immediate family in the ample bedrooms and friends & family (26) visited for a party on the patio and pool. We enjoyed the boat and beautiful lake. Dad even caught a fish! We will definately stay in this home again. There was plenty of room - we did not use the formal dining or living rooms, and still had enough room. The kitchen and greatroom are set up for entertainment and the kitchen had everything I needed. The owners were great to work with and I received my damage deposit back promptly. Thanks for a fantastic family memory.

Home away from home again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a wonderful 9 days at this exceptional home. This was our second time staying here and we may have even enjoyed it more. The house is beautiful, spacious, well kept up and really well stocked. We loved being on the lake and the use of the boat is quite a nice perk. Thank you Bob for sharing your beautiful home with us once again! I'm sure we will be back!

Paradise In The Desert

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this wonderful property Thanksgiving week of 2010. The home was spacious, immaculate, extremely comfortable, and nicely furnished..Beds and linens were top quality.The unique setting (on a lake) was an added bonus, as was the boat that was available for our use. The owners were extremely pleasant and very professional in the handling of the rental. The nicest property we have stayed at in the Palm Springs area by far! Would definitely return again.

Near to great restaurants, shopping, grocery stores and site seeing. Palm Springs Tram is a great place to go for cooler weather and a view of the entire Choacella Valley.
