Comfortable, functional, great location

  • 5 of 5

Nice floor plan with good MBR suite, kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare and serve meals. Regardless of sun location, there were outside sitting areas to enjoy. Owner is very good to work with and would definately recommend this property. Silver Sands is well located and is generally quiet. The tennis facility is well maintained and managed.

Spacious, lovely, and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in Adrienne Marke's lovely vacation condo in Palm Desert, and we would definitely recommend her rental to friends and family. First, Adrienne is a dream to work with - you can count on reliable, prompt communications and friendly responsiveness to any and all concerns. The property was clean and well maintained, and is very comfortable and attractive. The neighborhood is blissfully quiet, and the wifi worked wonderfully well. Great privacy and outdoor spaces. We will definitely rent this property again.

Quiet and Relaxing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here while attending Coachella and we had a fabulous time! The condo has 3 different outdoor seating areas and extremely easy access to a pool. This is definitely a very quiet neighborhood which worked out well for us as we just wanted to relax. My only complaint is that the sofa bed isn't super comfortable so I would probably bring an air mattress if there were more than 4 people. The place really is wonderful though and we would definitely stay there again. Adrienne is also great to work with and very responsive!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you found Villa Marbella a great way to relax after long days at the concert. The community is a big change from the hustle and bustle of the crowds at the festival. Those darn sofa beds are never as comfy as we'd like them to be, are they? I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit at Villa Marbella.

Very nice accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This was my family's third vacation in Palm Desert, but the first time staying in this home and Silver Sands community. The rental process was smooth and Adrienne was responsive and easy to work with. The house was clean, spacious, and well maintained for our family of 4. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils, dishes, etc. you would need.

There are several heated pools near the house which is extremely convenient. Tennis courts are a short walk away. We typically played at night. Lighted courts and no one was on them. Courts can be reserved for the mornings which seem to be the preferred time to play in the community. The clubhouse has a brand new fitness center with treadmills and weight machines. Nice addition to the facilities.

The week we were there, the community was very quiet. May be the time of year as I learned that most of the owners are part time residents.

The location is a short drive from Rancho Mirage which has a lot of shops and restaurants. Grocery store and Target are short drives away. There is a community park about a 5 minute drive away that has tennis courts, basket ball courts, and a playground. The park was well maintained as we played tennis there several mornings when the courts at Silver Sands were booked. One afternoon we listened to a concert at the pavilion at the park. There is also a large pool at the park for lap swimming and had slides and spray area for the kids. We did not use that pool, but it looked very nice.

A little thing we found inconvenient is having to get gas for the grill. We knew it was not included, but the canister was completely empty. So it was a bit inconvenient have to go to a location to exchange the tank. The owner did provide a binder with useful local information which included locations where the tank could be exchanged/refilled.

Overall, we were pleased with the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Villa Marbella. I'm glad you found the property well stocked and comfortable for your family. It is nice having so many pools in the community to choose from and two that are very close. Although I don't play tennis myself, many of those who come to Silver Sands are drawn here by the great courts, tennis pro, and tournaments. The HOA does a fantastic job maintaining them. You were able to enjoy the "new" fitness center before I ever got a chance to see it. I finally made my way out there and it is quite nice! I plan to add the photos to the listing very soon. My apologies for the empty propane tank. I can imagine the frustration of getting ready to grill and needing to make run fill it. There used to be two tanks at the property and one somehow disappeared. We hope to one day convert the grill to natural gas so that is not an inconvenience in the future. Many thanks to you and your family for staying at Villa Marbella and we look forward to your return on your next trip to Palm Desert.
