A 5 Star diamond rated home and location.
"A 5 Star diamond rated home and location in the most delightful and comfortable stay at the Cahuilla Hillside Oasis Retreat this past week. Truly the description of the home and location by the owner is most apt and best describes our experience - it was a most enjoyable stay. Very quiet, lots of privacy and solitude and the seamless transistion of the homes feelings with the outside surrounding, with the many large floor to ceiling windows to the outside sweeping views of the surrounding acreage and scenic desert valley and mountains can rarely be found elsewhere. Large heated pool/Jacuzzi and the fireplaces during the winter was a plus along with the TV's in each room and the surrounding walking areas and local mountain trails.
Great stay at an amazing house!!!!
This house was amazing! As soon as we drove into the neighborhood, we were impressed by the scenery and views. When we arrived at the house, we were greeted by Wendy and received a lovely tour around the house. She was extremely nice and welcoming! She happily answered all of our questions and even suggested the beautiful trail by the house. The house itself was absolutely beautiful! When you walk out to the backyard, the view is unbelievable especially in the morning. The house was very spacious and had everything we needed especially in the kitchen when we had to cook! It was also very close by to groceries and food places if needed. I'm definitely giving this 5 stars and would highly suggest to anyone to stay here if you're planning to visit Palm Springs. It was a great place for my friends and I! We would definitely come back :)
NOT what I was expecting. Once was enough.
I write this review in the interest of helping renters understand what they’re getting, and hoping the owner improve. Let me start by saying that this home has incredible potential. Sadly, much of that potential is not realized and for the price, the owner owes his guests a bit more care. The owner of the home communicated clearly prior to arrival, and provided a warm and thorough welcome to the home. He has owned this home for many years and sadly it suffers from “deferred maintenance”. I understand a second home often can be neglected and many little things can be overlooked. Things such as a ceiling of cracked and peeling paint over the shower, multiple faucets and a bidet that do not fully turn off, cupboard hinges that are loose or broken. Other things speak to greater neglect such as shower curtain that is moldy and has not been replaced in years (a simple $10 curtain), a cracked and sharp pool inhabited by large frogs, pool river rocks that while attractive, are not properly attached and very dangerous for folks of all ages... (my wife almost fell and my son cut his foot.) There are no functional pool lights in the spa or pool, making night time swimming or spa time uninviting, especially with large noisy frogs hopping around the river. There are underwater lights in the pool but they have apparently been disconnected—not worth repairing? There are old electrical wires that have *presumably* been shut off actually *in the water* of the little river. The second bedroom has a window that has an inoperable latch presenting a security issue. The WiFi router needed to be unplugged to reset many times during our stay. The blinds are broken in many places throughout, leading to privacy concerns. The electrical system is truly one of a kind and it will take several days to make sense of it. The lamps in the living room are suffering from age and in disrepair. I could go on but I think I’ve made my point. This home has so much potential but it needs some pride and TLC. It was clean inside when we arrived, but the pool was filthy and not cleaned until Day 5/7. At $47/day to make the pool warm enough to be usable, be prepared to budget that expense on top of the inflated price for this home.
While this was was one of the most disappointing places we have stayed in the Palm Springs area, the location and view was very nice. The owner should know better. I shouldn’t have to think about all of these things on vacation-not my job. Obviously, we will not return.
Luke, we appreciate your feedback. We are sorry to hear that your stay fell short of your expectations, realizing certain of your expectations mentioned were not included in your reservation request and therefore the owner was unaware of them. The owner prepares an introductory home walk thru based on your reservation request information (Pool/Jacuzzi use, beds provided, pets, AC use, safety, etc.) providing essential helpful key details during the walk-thru on the homes operational items to provide an enjoyable and comfortable stay. As the owner takes pride in providing a 5-star experience for each guest, they request at several times during the walkthrough to call the owner during their stay with any concerns so they can maintain their hillside oasis at top quality level. Unfortunately, the owner or his on-site manager were not contacted by you during your stay to allow them to address and/or resolve the items you mentioned which certainly would have enhanced your stay by eliminating any maintenance issues mentioned which often can be promptly resolved. We do note that the pool and jacuzzi can be heated for an additional fee per day, but we apologize if that caught you off guard. This property has routine maintenance checks and no evidence has appeared regarding the condition of the pool. The cleaners do meticulous work and can assure future renters that the home and its grounds are very clean, comfortable and well maintained. As such, we're confident future guests will have exceptional stays! Best, The Evolve Team
Super relaxing vibe. Loved the view!!!!
We LOVED this property! The view and the outside patio/pool space is just perfect!! We loved waking up in the master bedroom to the sun coming up over the hills with the floor to ceiling windows!! Then once the kids woke up they walked straight outside and into the pool and jacuzzi. The area is so quiet, but we then were so close to great restaurants and grocery stores to stock the kitchen. The house is clean and spacious and the bedrooms are very private due to their placement in the floorplan. We hiked in the nearby trail and enjoyed the views. Our family of four was VERY happy with the home and just the general vibe of the space. We will DEF be back!!! Thank you Bill for your hospitality it was also great to meet you!!! A lovely home....
Wonderful Little Desert Paradise
Came here to celebrate New Years, and can't recommend it highly enough. We were 2 couples, a baby, and a dog, and everyone had a wonderful time.
The house layout is awesome, with a fantastic and spacious combination living/dining room, a kitchen with lots of space that was stocked for everything we needed (including a coffee grinder!). The bedrooms are very nice. I never had any complaints about the beds or other furnishings. WiFi, full entertainment centers, fireplaces, really comfy chairs and couch; couldn't ask for more.
The real highlight of the place is outside though. A very comfy back yard has a wonderful pool, a secluded hot tub, and a 5 star view of the mountains and city below. There is a trail that dead ends right at the driveway into some of the most beautiful desert areas you can imagine. I walked the trail many times with my dog and baby and everyone had an absolutely grand time.
As some previous reviewers mentioned, the electrical system is a little quirky and not super intuitive, but Bill showed me where everything is, and I could pretty much figure everything out with 2 minutes of switch hunting. This never bothered me. The few questions we had, Bill answered within a few minutes. He is one of the most pleasant and helpful renters I've ever met.
We'd love to stay here again, and recommend this place very highly.
Just as described, relaxing and quiet.
