About Philip Jacobs


Our condo has the most spectacular view in the whole complex, and my wife and I took advantage of that view and made the patio extra large back there for maximum enjoyment and comfort.

With all new furniture, fresh paint inside and out, new automatic retractable awning on the back patio makes in very comfortable enjoying the view and dine under the stars.

Enjoy your stay,

Philip and Mairena Jacobs

Why Philip Jacobs chose California Desert

Best location in the Coachella valley, out of the wind belt and close to absolutely everything you can imagine.

This rental was sold to us as having a king, queen and twin beds in the 3 bedrooms, but when we arrived there were 3 queens. Given that we filter out rentals that don't have a king bed, we wouldn't have stayed here if the owner had told us he changed the beds to queens. To make it worse, he didn't update the bedding, so we were using the old king sheets on the master queen. These kind of matched the majority of the towels that were frayed or stained; we had to buy our own face cloths.

The brand new kitchen appliances were actually 10 years old and of lower quality; the dishwasher was pretty much useless. The property doesn't sleep 8; there are 3 queens and no convertible beds. The dining table is big enough for 6 but there are only 4 chairs. There is no stereo or DVD player. The breakfast nook (now not advertised) was not there. There were bikes, but all had flat tires and only 1 was actually functional.

There is a $50 penalty against the renter for not cleaning the BBQ or replacing an empty propane bottle. The spare was empty to start so we had to exchange it before running out of the one in use. It took about an hour to clean the grease and dirt off it so the store would be willing to take it back. The bottle on the BBQ also had to be cleaned as it too was coated with grease and dirt because there wasn't a proper catch tray in place until we got one. The owner should be paying us the $50.

The condo is 35 years old and needs some renovating. Even in its current condition it needs a deep cleaning and de-clutter. Friends were staying at another VRBO property in the same complex and paying less for their month than we did, even though their place was fully updated and far superior (except for the deck).

On the positive side our rental had a nice, well equipped, deck with a golf course outlook and western exposure. Inside, there was new living and bedroom furniture, and a number of new items such as the pots and pans.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and the possibility of improving our rental experience to our guests. We bought all new furniture, beds, bedspreads, all new linens, towels, fresh paint, brand new retractable awning and patio furniture for the spacious west facing rear patio with breathtaking views of the golf course. We did indeed have a deep clean done just days before this guest arrived, but we will address this with our cleaning crew to make sure we can satisfy even the most vituperative critic. We apologize for the air going out of the tires on some of the bikes, something we will certainly address, hope the guest enjoyed the use of our 4 seater Yamaha Golf Cart which we allow all our guests to use within the complex during their stay. Thanks again for your review, we find the toughest reviews just as helpul as the friendly praising ones. Yours Truly, Philip Jacobs

Desert Trip Weekend 1 with the girls!

Beautiful, spacious home. Very comfortable. We highly recommend mimosas on the patio while looking out at the gorgeous golf course. The owners were very thoughtful and responsive.

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed my stay here. It had a nice, large living room and nice sunny patio facing the golf course. It was also nice to have the pool so close. Philip was very easy to work with and would always respond to my emails very quickly. I would stay here again.

We stayed in this condo for March/2012. The location was very good , to groceries, shopping. There were some cleanliness issues, such as all the ashes by a former renter were left in the fireplace upon our arrival and blew throughout the living room after a strong wind. Also, too much leftover food in the fridge. The paperwork with the owner was not documented. We had verbally requested to return the following season and had the owner retain our deposit rather than reissuing and he forgot this and double booked which then resulted in our losing our vacation rental for 2013. A lesson to get reservations in writing.

Owner's Response: The renter was so rude and demanding via email that I decided she was not deserving of our piece of paradise.

GREAT weeklong stay over Thanksgiving holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at this particular condo for one week over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We absolutely loved our week, and have already booked again for next year. It is the perfect mixture of relaxation and accessible activities. The pool is right by the house, which we used daily. It has a great patio for lounging around and watching the golfers as well as the view of the mountains. We ventured out to the street fair on Saturday, down the freeway to the outlet malls for black friday, ran a 5k on El Paseo etc., all without feeling like we had to travel a lot. The owner has been WONDERFUL and very easy to contact with questions and planning. We highly recommend this.
