Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in October, 2014. We were in heaven for the few days we were here! We had plans to go hiking everyday, but found ourselves floating in the pool and lounging around every day. We loved it so much we didn't want to leave. We went out at night for dinner but otherwise were completely content just camping out poolside. When we arrived there were four other apartments occupied with very friendly people. Our last two days we found ourselves alone. We had the whole place to ourselves! It was nice to be so close to downtown, yet in this little oasis. We slept like babies. It was so quiet and peaceful. We sat on our back private patio every morning soaking in the morning sunlight and then moved around front by the pool later in the morning. Richard and his wife were such friendly hosts and made sure that we had everything that we needed. Our whole stay was perfect! We can't imagine ever staying anywhere else in Palm Springs!
