Great house - issue on arrival

  • 3 of 5

We absolutely loved the house. The polished concrete floors were quite the hit with our group. The layout and amenities were perfect, and my girlfriend commented multiple times how much she'd love to live in this house. The large kitchen/family room area made a great gathering place, and having a separate dining room and TV room made it easy to relax in different settings. Walking into the heated pool was an absolute joy.

The only issue we had was that on our arrival the cleaning crew hadn't come in. It was pretty late in the evening when we got there, and rather than going to bed we first had to run a load of laundry. The cleaning crew took full responsibility, and assured us this had never happened before, and wouldn't happen again. They were very apologetic and responsive during our stay there, and the owner did compensate us for the inconvience. We're confident this was something that was unique to our stay, but we want to be honest with this review, and this was an issue we experienced.

Overall, we'd have no hesitations in recommending this house to any of our friends who might be looking for a place to stay in this area.

We were a family of 9 and stayed in this gorgeous home last week - grandparents, young late 20's newly married couple, and family with parents and 3 kids ages 9, 6 and 2..this house was perfect for us, and had everything we needed to have a fun relaxing week with our family. Location is perfect, layout of the home worked perfectly for us, the home is very well maintained, the pool was perfect for us all and especially the kids. The kitchen is large and beautiful and very well equipped. Lots of beach towels and pool toys were provided and very accessible, we could not have asked for anything more.. we had a wonderful and relaxing vacation. We went on some wonderful walks just from the house.. Perfect for us!

Nice home, excellant location

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in a very nice, quiet area of Rancho Mirage. The home is very well equipped and has a great yard and pool area. The pool is well heated which is important to a Canadian in January. Perfect home for 2 or 3 couples. Lots of great golfing within minutes of this home. Highly recommend this home.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family Christmas and it couldn't have worked out better. Michael was professional and responsive to my inquiries, the home location is central and yet the neighbourhood is quiet. The house is spacious and extremely well supplied. There was ample room for the 8 of us, plus our Cocker Spaniel who loved the large, fenced yard.

We highly recommend this property!

Poor Communication and Broken Promises

  • 1 of 5

It took Michael five days to return my call to confirm our reservation and send the

contract. Not a problem as I later found out he was spending time with his kids. I mention this because after receiving the reservation confirmation, I was expecting Michael to email the access instructions prior to arrival as our confirmation email explains. Fast forward to the night before check in - There was no communication from Michael, so I called him, only to find out that he wasn't expecting us. He stated that our reservation had been cancelled - yet looking at VRBO, our dates were still blocked out, I paid for the first half of the deposit and received confirmation of our reservation. Ok…. I'm in a little bit of a panic now. The 2nd payment should have automatically be paid on the due date as there are no instructions stating otherwise. Michael handled it well and said the house is available. I asked when check in time was and Michael said anytime would be fine. We agreed on a time and he replied that he would have the property looked at and guaranteed that the property would be ready prior to arrival.

We arrived at our designated time and the property was not rental ready. We couldn't use the pool for the first two days as the pool was (very) dirty due to the filter needing to be replaced. The A/C filter also needed to be replaced and wasn't working until late the first evening - keep in mind it was 107 that day. There were nasty stains on the comforter in the guest house and there was a large amount of dust balls draping over the head board in the guest house that had to be accumulating for quite some time. We were looking forward sitting by the outdoor fire pit in the evening, which turned out broken. Oh and don't let me forget about the large amount of bird excrement all over the back patio and lounge cushions that needed to be disinfected and cleaned. We spent the day coordinating with the property manager and overseeing that the various challenges get addressed. It wasn't until 7 hours later that most of the issues had been resolved. This is NOT the way we should have spent our first day. It was very disappointing. Regardless of what the rental fee is, the property should be clean and in working order. Michael agreed to refund the first nights rental fee Sep. 30 - it is now Oct. 9 and I have not received the credit. I sent a follow up email the morning of the 7th and there has been (no) response. *Update: received a refund on the 9th

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing time at Michael's house and would return in a heartbeat. The amenities were perfect and everything was spotless (important for my high-maintenance crowd). Great cooks kitchen, plenty of towels, quality flatware and plenty of room to spend quiet time away from the group if needed. A perfect 10!
