Originally purchased for family use.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home in Palm Desert. My friends and I loved how quiet and relaxing it was to stay there. The house was very spacious, immaculate and in a great location to beautiful shops and restaurants on El Paseo. It was so comfortable to just relax by the pool and have some downtime.











Tom and Barbara were a great help in helping with the arrangements. I would definitely stay at this wonderful, cared for property again and again.

Winter in Palm Desert

  • 4 of 5

The best thing was the weather!!! Overall the house is very nice and in a good location. Originally there were going to be 4 couples, we ended up with 2, which worked out well. One couple in the master and one in the Casita. The bathrooms were small, no counter space in the Casita, but there was a kitchen counter. Had some small issues with the back door not closing, garage opener not working and thermostat fluctuating. Never got resolved, evidently email problems in responding, handyman never came out . Also, if beach towels were used, they had to be laundered, sort of tacky, since there's a cleaning fee!!!

But overall we did enjoy the house, pool and backyard.

Very enjoyable vacation home. Easy to maintain. Comfortable to relax. Convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed a relaxing fun filled weekend together during our stay at Grapevine. Room enough for everyone to find their space in an area big enough to cook, eat, or watch tv yet all within range of each other.

This Home is a Great Property for a Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this home. We absolutely love it, it fits all of our needs. The managers are a joy to work with and everything about it is an easy transaction. We are a group of seven women who vacation together once a year. There is plenty of space to sleep with everyone in beds and having four bathrooms is a plus. We chose to have the pool heated because the weather was so nice. The kitchen is fully stocked for any cooking you may want to do. The home is located close to shops and restaurants and is in a quiet neighborhood. There are plenty of activity options in Palm Desert if you want to be busy. We highly recommend renting this house and hope it will continue to be offered as a rental in years to come.

Lovely relaxing home.

  • 5 of 5

We had three families for a total of 10 people.

Each adult couple had their own bedroom and the kids had one for themselves. Absulutly great!

Our time there was during a heat wave, even though it was Thanksgiving , so we enjoyed the pool.

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a full Thanksgiving meal , we brought along some spices

and other grocery staples.

Do bring your own shampoo’s etc.

We enjoyed a short hike up to the cross on a nearby hill. The location

It’s a very convenient location to shopping and food.

The owners were very easy to work with.
