Two month stay Jan and Feb 2017

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Roger and Maureen's condo. The unit is exactly as shown and discussed in the VRBO listing - very comfortable and convenient to many restaurants and downtown Palm Desert with new appliances and a great private heated pool. The owner was great to work with when any questions arose. We'll be back next year !

Perfect Festival Weekend Rental

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I came down to Palm Desert for the Stagecoach Music Festival. Not only was the condo an inexpensive uber trip to the nearest shuttle stop, but there was so much room and plenty of sleeping accommodations for the 8 people in my group. The condo is beautiful and has everything you could want for a weekend getaway - inner courtyard, outer courtyard, near the pool, spacious lawn (shared by several condos). We had the most incredible weekend and are already talking about returning next year! Thank you so much Roger and Maureen!!

Better than the best hotel anywhere in the area

  • 5 of 5

I said it more than once: If you gave me this place at the same price as the best hotel in the area, I'd still take this place. Much, much more room, 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, no walking down the hall & to an elevator to get outside, beautiful large back porch with table & chairs for 6 plus 2 chairs with a small table overlooking (from a slightly elevated location) spacious landscaping & the pool, fully stocked kitchen, nice interior furnished porch with a BBQ, washer & dryer...well, you get the idea. The owner was more than willing to be helpful in any way. We've stayed in other Sandpiper units--nice, but not as nice as this one.

Perfect Accomadations

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better place to stay for our Christmas vacation. The enclosed patio and the outdoor patio were used everyday. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook. We enjoyed the landscaping while sitting around the pool. Meeting the neighbors was fun. We enjoyed fresh orange juice from orange trees outside our door. We were conveniently close to stores, zoo and art gallery. It does not take long to be in Palm Springs to enjoy the architecture tour and the city.

We can't wait to go back. Now we know why everyone always says they loved Palm Springs.
