Terrific property - clean and updated, well maintained, fully stocked, good linens, lovely art. Great pool and hot tub. Great location - very private and quiet, close to downtown, hiking, tram and outlet mall. Fabulous concierge service, very helpful and responsive.
We would book this property again.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Mel House! It was a perfect layout for our group of 8 girlfriends for a long weekend getaway. Plenty of space and excellent accommodations!
We would return and rent this house again!
Mel House was a perfect house! Very well maintained. The house was well over stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware, etc. The only thing I would suggest to the owner is to put a TV outside. Dan & David were our contacts in Palm Springs. They were very easy to get in touch with. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who will be visiting Palm Springs.
We had a really wonderful time and the house was everything we could ask for.
The home was beautiful and spacious. We loved that is was so well stocked with everything needed. The managers were the most responsive and helpful of any I have ever worked with. We were a little disappointed that the misters on the patio did not work since they were included in the property description.
