Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home with my two young daughters. This was our second time staying at here so when at the last minute my husband wasn't able to make it, I had no concerns at all. It is a very easy drive from airport and everything we needed was right at our fingertips. We had the best time just relaxing at the pool and when the evenings wound down we had puzzles and games to keep us occupied, all supplied by our hosts. The house is modern and immaculate and has everything you could ever imagine needing. The beds were unbelievably comfortable as was the reclining sofa during movie time. The cherry on top though has to be the beautiful pool/backyard area. It is definitely paradise. The landscaping is amazing and my favorite time was when my girls needed a break from the sun (I know, I can't imagine it either) and I had the whole yard to myself. Listening to the birds chirping and the peaceful water feature in the pool was absolute heaven. I honestly can't say enough about this rental. It's our favorite place in the world to be and our girls are already asking when they can go back.

Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Desert Escape Home" This was our second time renting this property for a month and we wouldn't hesitate to rent it again. We felt at home from the moment we walked was very clean and spacious and the furniture and beds were very comfortable. It's located in a quiet neighborhood and is close to all the amenities you need conveniently located a block or two away. Access to the main freeway is close too, so it's easy to get to other areas of interest but isn't the only route available to get around. The kitchen is very well stocked with a large assortment of cooking utensils, serving dishes as well as good selection of spices. There were books to read, movies to watch and games to play but our very favorite was the beautiful back yard! The pool and spa were absolutely wonderful and surrounded by large palm trees and flowering shrubs and the pictures really don't do it justice. Colleen and Darryl were excellent......they checked in to make sure everything was okay and if we had any questions or concerns they called us immediately. This house has everything you need for a relaxing get away and we highly recommend it!

Desert Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week there with our four children and my wife's parents. My mother-in-law said she felt like she was in a dream; she had the joy of being in the master suite upstairs next to the kids and my wife and I had the bigger joy of being in the master suite downstairs (away from the kids!) The house is fantastic! There was a space for everyone to do whatever they enjoyed; reading books in the solarium, watching movies on the huge flat screen tv, or just relaxing in the living room listening to the sounds of pure joy erupting from our 4 year old twins! I can not give due reverence to the heavenly swimming pool. If it were up to my 6 year old and twins we would have stayed in the pool 24 hours a day. The warm summer winds blowing in the early evening hours while I relaxed in the pool with the kids are memories I will cherish forever. The house was immaculate! The moment I first opened the door the first time, it just felt right. Kitchen was very well equipped! There were plenty of groceries stores and clothing stores within walking distance. Colleen and Darryl were beyond excellent and the instruction booklet was very accurate! I would recommend, if not insist, that any of my family or friends visiting the Inland Empire contact the owners for availability.

Family Gathering

We spent a month here with my husband's sister and brother in law and other siblings joined us for the end of the month. To say this was great is an understatement! This property was perfect! The beds were very comfortable. Spectacular pool and amenities. The house was very clean!!!! Kitchen was well equipped including spices! The owner was extremely easy to work with. Shopping was extremely convenient. We would absolutely rent this again!

A truly wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from Desert Escape after spending a month in this very comfortable and relaxing home. Everything that Daryl and Colleen offer in their listing is indeed accurate and they are so accommodating and easy to deal with. Any detail at all that their guests need guidance or assistance with is responded to in record time. They are totally in tune with guests enjoying their getaway. The home lends itself to everything you need to possibly relax by the pool, treat your muscles in the hot tub after golf or a run, put your feet up and read a book or even prepare a gourmet dinner in the expansive kitchen. The pool area is heavenly, well maintained and quiet.

This was our first time in the Palm Springs/ Palm Desert area so we were not familiar with the layout and adjacency of all the neighbourhoods. While Desert Escape in Indio is East of Palm Desert, it is very very convenient to everything and you can visit what you may call the main areas of the desert in no time . The main freeway access along with other quieter alternative routes are minutes away. This home is almost next door to a shopping area that includes Winco which is a very large grocery store that has absolutely everything you may need including very friendly staff. Needless to say, golfing was very much enjoyed by some of our family members, as were walking, running, hiking and cycling.

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this home for many different reasons and we also hope to return in the near future.
