open space, quiet, private swimming and sunbathing
My family and I really enjoyed this home. It was perfect for a family of six. The backyard was over our expectations, so clean and well maintained. Everything was just as describe, if not better. Nevertheless Ken and Sam are so easy to talk to. Their responses were very quick and detailed. We would love to be back soon!
My partner and I stayed here over a long weekend and were very happy. It’s such a quiet neighborhood but close to all of the good stuff. The view from the hot tub is amazing. The back yard is private and well maintained. Sam and Ken and are quick to respond to questions and have pretty much covered everything you could ask for. Highly recommended and we will certainly be back soon!
Our family stayed at Sam and Ken's property over Christmas vacation and couldn't have asked for anything thing better. The house is the perfect size for a family of four. The backyard is gorgeous and our daughters loved the pool. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you would need to make meals at home. There is an Albertsons grocery store nearby (5 minute drive). The neighbourhood was very quiet and the location of the house was close to the shopping on Palm Canyon Drive. In addition the house is also a short drive to the airport which was also convenient. We rented bikes and rode around the Vista Las Palmas neighbourhood. We also enjoyed going for hikes at Indian Canyons and Joshua Tree National Park. The owners, Sam and Ken, were very easy to deal with and responded quickly to all questions and emails. We would definitely stay here again.
My spouse and I have stayed at Sam & Ken's amazing desert oasis about 4 or 5 times over the past 3 years and it is always an amazing vacation. Sam and Ken are so nice and organized, booking the home is a breeze. They are very good to their repeat renters, offering discounts on their already affordable home and accommodating early check-in/late check-outs which makes staying at a hotel seem like a joke. The backyard is amazing for dogs of all size with a huge patch of grass for running and playing as well as very secure fences, which is always my main concern with our 10lbs yorkie. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. Some people mention the nearby airport, of course you notice the planes flying overhead when you're outside but not once did I hear them while indoors and there are only like 3-4 per day, it's not like staying near LAX or anything. The pool is warm and spacious and they have lots of fun toys and floaties that even adults can enjoy. They also have lots of plastic glasses for pool cocktails - Sam and Ken know what's up! They have 4 amazing lounge chairs and plenty of other outdoor furniture so there is really no reason to even be indoors. They've added some great new upgrades like new flat screen TVs in the living room and master bedroom, which was great because we brought an HDMI cord and our computer and were able to catch up on some Netflix once the sun went down. The master bedroom has a really comfortable bed, lots of closet space and sliding glass doors to the bathroom and bedroom from the backyard. The backyard has beautiful mountain views and the fences are quite high so you have lots of privacy. The kitchen is well stocked with any kind of cooking tools you need, we usually just bring a ton of food from LA for our weekend and just never leave the house - it's amazing! It's located close to the main strip (probably not walking distance unless you're up for some exercise) as well as lots of groceries stores and a new 7/11 (that is in walking distance). We always love our Palm Springs vacation, as does our pup, and I'm already planning our return trip! Thanks as always Sam & Ken :)
My family and I rented this place for Spring Break 2014. We were a bit skeptical about bringing our kids (ages 13, 12 and 9) to the desert for vacation but we wanted warm weather so we decided to give it a try. Sam and Ken's house was perfect. It is located in Palm Springs proper, convenient to downtown. The house has everything you'll need so you don't have to pack much. Sam and Ken were a delight to work with, and they did everything possible to make our trip stress-free. The use of the 2-car garage was a plus since most house rentals store a lot of miscellaneous stuff in the garage instead of letting renters use it to park their cars. This bonus is nicer than you might expect (it's hot in Palm Springs so imagine what it would be like getting into your car after it's been sitting in the sun). The yard and the pool/spa area make the house, in fact it's probably as much square footage, if not more, than the house itself and it is fully enclosed, private and quiet. We brought our two dogs with us and they enjoyed themselves just exploring the yard. Our two daughters spent most of the time in and out of the pool and spa. Our son (our oldest) spent a lot of time on his laptop and claimed that the WiFi speed was way faster than what we have at home! The house is centrally located, well stocked and very comfortable for families (nothing too sterile or too minimalist). Everything works as described and Sam and Ken provided excellent clear instructions on how to use everything. Pool heat is included in the rental fee which is rare in Palm Springs. Are there better, bigger, more luxurious places to rent? Sure, but expect to pay a lot more than what Sam and Ken will charge you. And Sam and Ken offer discounts for repeat visitors! Sometimes owners are difficult to deal with (over property managers), but Sam and Ken were a delight. For everyone reading reviews about the windy/non-windy areas and the noise from the airport, ignore what you read. There are no wind free areas in Palm Springs. The entire Coachella Valley is surrounding by mountain ranges so when it's windy, it's windy everywhere. The Palm Springs airport is smack dab in the middle of Palm Springs so wherever you stay, you may occasionally hear planes taking off or landing. Sam and Ken's yard is entirely enclosed with higher-than-usual stucco fences so the back yard is protected and very comfortable. We found it to be very quiet and inviting. We will definitely be back!
A cozy home, close to everything. Wonderful backyard with beautiful view of the mountains. Very private with a great pool and hot tub.
The owners, Ken and Sam are a pleasure to deal with.
