Stress Free and Warm

  • 5 of 5

One of the first things we did was turn off the air conditioning. Even though it was in the 90s every day, the house never was uncomfortable or above 75. We loved this place. Central location. CLEAN. Quiet. Safe. The caretaker, Frank, is a complete gem. Any owners who have a clue, know Frank is key. He was super attentive, shared all the right information at the right time. (He even gave us extra white grapefruits the locals were 'sick of' already.) This place is professionally managed, pool cleaned twice a week, gardeners, all our completely unintrusive. Get this, even on garbage day, you don't even have to take it to the curb, one crew comes and gets it, another crew comes back later to put the containers away. Oh, such is life in the desert, where we finally warmed up after six months, and ate our fill of fresh fruit. For those of you who are GPS crazy, the airport is close, but not that close, we spent so much time by the fabulous pool to hardly notice anything other than the morning doves cooing. Finally, back to that pool, forget 'infinity' pools, you want a pool like this, SALTWATER based. They should be all the rage. No more smelling like you swam in a toxic swamp. Amazing place, especially for this price point. Special shoutout and thanks Frank and the owners who obviously know how to run a rental property.

This home has everything for fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Tony for sharing your amazingly decorated home. We had constant smiles on our faces because of the great ambiance. We were more than comfortable - felt quite spoiled actually - it was hard to leave. The hot tub/pool was great after our rounds of golf and we had days just enjoing the private outdoor space - again everything was perfect. The house is very convenient to the airport, shopping, golf, downtown Palm Springs. We look forward to returning. And thanks to Frank's warm welcome with freshly picked grapefruit and lemons.

Total comfort, privacy and R&R

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Palm Springs and we truly enjoyed our stay.

The house is located in an older neighbourhood. An industrial area is located nearby however the residential area seems to be family oriented. Convenient location to airport, downtown and main highways – we highly recommend having your own vehicle.

Once inside this home there was total privacy, nicely renovated and very well maintained. Kitchen stocked with the basics which was great - just need to buy your food for meals and your beverages. The home has a great layout with bathroom off the master bedroom and access directly to the pool. The second bedroom is located across the hall from a bathroom that had direct access to the pool – perfect set-up for two couples. The third bedroom also had access to a side walkway which led to the pool.

We loved the decor and it had all the essentials required for a great vacation. The moment we walked in, we knew we made the right decision in renting this property and home is exactly as shown in the pictures.

Actual total cost plus cleaning fee is quoted on the website, no nickel & dime stuff like a lot of other rentals. Also, you deal with the owner not a property management company like a lot of other rentals; the owner and caretaker were terrific to deal with.

We hope to come back as we had a fantastic week!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing 4 night stay and could not agree more with all the previous positive reviews. The house is very clean, comfortable with great designer furniture and everything you could need regards entertainment, cooking etc. The gardens are beautifully landscaped and secluded with a great pool, jacuzzi, bbq and seating areas. Sunshine or shade all day as you require!

The house is in a quiet location, but just a short drive away from all amenities.

The owner Tony and property manager Frank were great to deal with and I have no hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends.

We really enjoyed Palm Springs and surrounding area and hope to return soon.

Desi's Desert Pad

  • 5 of 5

What a great 5 day, 4 night stay the two of us had at Desi's Desert Pad. From the moment we met Frank the property manager until the moment we left for the airport, it was a home-away-from-home experience! The property is well-maintained, well-stocked and very comfortable. The heated pool and spa were a life saver for the both of us after busy days in Palm Springs seeing the attractions and eating at the great restaurants. The house is in an excellent location making it easy to get around town. We look forward to our next stay in Desi's Desert Pad. It can't come soon enough!

Car: necessary

Located in Palm Springs, in the sunny, wind free area south of the airport. We are close to DeMuth park and Knott's Soak City water park. Airport noise is slight and very infrequent because most of the air traffic comes in and out of the North end. The downtown area is 1.5 miles straight down Ramon Rd.
