About Nick Hughes

My wife and I love to travel with our two yorkies.

Nick Hughes purchased this house in 2007

Why Nick Hughes chose Palm Desert

The weather in the Desert is great from October to May. My wife and I love outdoor activities like hiking and playing golf. From our house you can drvie to ski, swim in the ocean, go to Disneyland, or take a hike to fabulous views of the valley. Then relax on El Paseo or at home on the patio.

What makes this house unique

The Living Desert is just a few blocks away. You can golf cart to the Living Desert or El Paseo or to your favorite hiking trails. The Mountain views are in every window.

The house is beautiful and well maintained. The owner is responsive.

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen could use some new pots and pans. The television system is confusing and written directions would be helpful. The owner did say he would send someone to fix the system but it never happened. The beds are comfortable and it is a spacious layout. The hot tub is beautiful and so relaxing in a well designed outdoor environment.

Owner Delinquent to Refund the Deposit- over 30 days

  • 1 of 5

The owner has not refunded the security deposit for over a month! multiple times contacted, multiple excuses, everything from blaming his accountant, to not wanting to refund on visa, to will mail a check, not knowing which address to send the check to because he had both a work and home address, and stalling and making excuses

We were notified the day of arrival, by text, that the spa pump was not working and spa was not usable- a main reason we selected this property. too late to cancel or find another house. I asked him 3 weeks after we left when we spoke on the phone re: the deposit return if the spa had been fixed, he said no. still is not fixed. I texted owner during the stay because we could not get the living room tv to work to watch the world series, no return texts. tv did not work.

property negatives, dirty bathroom shower mats, unavailable owner during stay, wont return deposit $

property pluses: accepts pets, master bed comfortable, putting green in back, nice master shower

I would highly recommend you select another comparable property. I have sent VRBO a note to correct the situation.

Owner's Response: This guest checked out on the 10-23. He posted this on the 11-24. This person has called me ten times per week since the day he checked out wanting his deposit. The Contract says it could be up to three weeks before your deposit is returned. I offered to mail him a check and he began threatening me and making rude comments. The comments about the TV, the Bathroom, the shower mats were never relayed to me and I returned all of his calls while he in the property. The SPA motor went out, as an owner you have appliances and motors that have issues, your try to fix as quickly possible. If I would had workman there to fix this motor then he would have complained about that. The motor is fixed!!! When he became indignant and offered up the threat of a poor review, as he said, "I am going to Crucify you in a review!" with many other words that I cant say in this response. I lost all motivation to assist him in any way. This rental property has many regulars if you feel the need to listen to someone that is totally irrational and unhinged, then please rent another property. I know my regular renters will contact me for availability. This has been rented several times since with no problems. Remember it has only been 31 days since he checked out.

Home was quite comfortable!

Only complaint was the lack of cleanliness!

Owner's Response: The issue with the place being clean was due to my normal cleaning people being unavailable. I had to use new cleaners. I will never use them again. This is not the norm and will not be an issue in the future.

Great Desert Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience renting this home for an extended weekend with my husband and two toddlers. At first, I didn't know how kid-friendly it would be given the marble tile floors. I was happy to find soft carpeting in the bedrooms and a very ample comfy couch in the living room. My boys had a fun time playing on the greens in the backyard too. My husband and I found the bedding in the master bedroom to be extremely comfortable and soft. I especially liked the double showerheads in the shower of the master bathroom and the large tub, which was perfect for giving our kids a bath. I didn't find the bathrooms to be lacking in storage space as there were shelves and baskets in the master bathroom and another area right outside the bathroom to put toiletries. Check-in and checking out went smoothly and Nick was a responsive host. I would very much consider renting this home again!
