We just returned from an absolutely amazing week at Casa Aguila! I highly recommend this property. Our group of 10 came to celebrate my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. We were 8 adults (four couples) and 2 kids (ages 8 months and 4 years) and the place fit us wonderfully. We loved the privacy of the guest house and casita as well as the huge common spaces (one large living/dining/TV/kitchen/lounging area, and plenty of lounging by the pool). We chose this place based on other reviews and we were not disappointed! The gardens and art are incredible, the location cannot be beat (very quiet yet walking distance to central Palm Springs area as well as gorgeous neighborhoods). Mel the house manager and Hugh the owner were very helpful with advance questions and check in/orientation. Truly a magical week!
This house is perfect in so many ways!! We spent a week relaxing by the pool with our Ohio family. Having 3 Master suite/bedrooms made this trip a special one for all of us. We also loved the pool / outdoor area with amazing desert landscape all around. The house is located in a great location of Palm Springs, walking distance to all shops/coffee/restaurants. The house is filled with amazing artwork and includes an amazing collection of books, CD's and records/record player that we enjoyed daily.
You will love staying at this house!!
We just spent a terrific week in Casa Aguilla. By we, I mean an extended family gathering (ranging in age from 5 months to 64 years, and in interests from sitting by the pool to long, strenuous bicycle rides) that occupied all 14 of the available spaces at this great house. What's great about it? Well, it is lovely, convenient and well-stocked with everything you might want. It has lots of shared space and lots of separations between the various sets of bedrooms and bathrooms, so it is easy to be together, but also easy to get some privacy. But more than that, it is a place that feels very much like home. I don't mean to say that any of us live is a place so large, or so full of lovely artwork. It is just evident from the moment you arrive that it is a place that someone lives in, and loves. The owners and the manager made everything feel easy, friendly, comfortable. We have stayed in several VRBO locations, and all have worked out well, but this one was beyond what we have experienced anywhere else. I hope we will find many future occasions to visit.
We rented this property for a month based on the pictures and phone conversations with the owner (yes, the actual owner!). On arrival it was clear that the pictures don't capture the loveliness of this home. We immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. The main house offers several gathering spots, a fully outfitted kitchen, and a dining room overlooking the gorgeous pool and gardens (created and tended for nearly 30 years by Jose). We had several rounds of guests, each conflicted about which casita to choose and with one common complaint: "We don't want to leave!" A quiet and serene compound with up-close mountain views, you are but a quick walk to all the shops, restaurants and attractions of Palm Springs. Don't forget to check out the courtyard at Koffi, our morning tradition. Hugh and Yves, the gracious owners, have created the perfect location for a family and/or friends get-away! We thank them for their willingness to share their beautiful home.
With 5 children and their accouterments - grandchildren, spouses, partners, this property lent itself to the best Christmas ever for our family of 13. From the moment we walked in, we were treated to the beautifully maintained house, pool, walking trails, private areas available to us. We each had very comfortable, private, rooms and baths, as well as wonderful large gathering areas such as the living room, pool area, and what we fondly called the covered sitting area near the pool, The Lanai. This is where, when I first saw it, I dreamed of celebrating my 70th birthday - and that dream came true on a lovely, sunny, day before Christmas. We not only celebrated my birthday and Christmas, but the 4 year birthday of our grandchild. These gathering areas were perfect for playing games, having our annual book club, visiting, opening gifts....we even walked into the house to find a fully decorated Christmas tree! The kitchen is well equipped, and much larger than the photos indicate....we're a family of cooks, and this kitchen accommodated us. There was eye-candy abounding, from the luscious foliage to the surrounding mountains, to the beautiful art and artifacts inside and outside the house, to the lovely lighting at night, to the hundreds of books beckoning us. The photos do NOT do this property justice, believe me. Two grandchildren were in charge of daily harvesting of grapefruit and lemons from the surrounding trees, and we had fresh lemonade constantly. The pool was used quite a bit, and we found the location of this property wonderful - a 10 minute walk to Koffi, for coffee and lunch at the inviting outdoor space. We walked to shops and restaurants, took a tour of Palm Springs (highly recommended), hiked many trails. We employed a photographer to take photos of our family, and he loved all the wonderful backgrounds - and the proofs show that they are amazing. Mel, the representative for the owners, was friendly and helpful, and all communications with everyone involved were positive and helpful. As I told the owner: As we were pulling out of the driveway after our wonderful week, I said: "Just permit me ONE whine: 'I don't WANNA go!'" We hope to return...this is a wonderful place to have fun, relax, visit, play in the pool, explore...
