Owners were great. They checked on us after a few days just to be sure everything was ok. The home looks just like the pictures. Would love to stay here again.

Had an amazing time!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Palm Springs for a week in October. We had never been there before. We had originally booked at a hotel for the week, but decided to try our hand at doing a VRBO rental. We had never done that before either! I have to say that our experience was amazing. Karen was absolutely wonderful to deal with from Day 1. She is really great at responding to questions and she made us feel very much at ease with our decision to do a VRBO. When we arrived, we found that the house and the grounds were exactly as shown in the pictures. We loved the location of the house within the complex as well as the location relative to Palm Springs and the other cities. Another plus was the pool that is located next door. There is a grass area in between so you were actually not literally next-door which helped buffer any noise in the event there may be people at the pool. One day we showed up and there were 4 adults and 2 children so we decided to go to another pool area just down the road and we had the pool to ourselves! So many options. We would highly recommend this property and would love to be able to stay there again in the future. Thank you so much Karen for making our first VRBO experience such a positive one. I am so glad that we had a chance to meet you face to face our last day!!

Owner's Response: The absolute nicest couple, amazing to work with and worried about taking care of us, our home and following house and community rules. Could not have enjoyed working with them more. Cannot wait to have them return.

Location is hard to beat at this 3-bedroom property on the course and beside the pool!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our first extended rental experience, and this property fit our needs perfectly. The house is decorated nicely and laid out well and a good fit for 2. Yet, the extra bedrooms were good for the friends that joined us for a few days during our stay--those rooms were very nice and amenities were great. The house was very well stocked with supplies and after a few days it felt like home. The location on the 5th green and 6th tee box of the Cielo golf course gives a great vibe for anyone who enjoys golf. And the area swimming pool and hot-tub were immediately next door. So, it was very convenient to access for us. Accessing the home from the East Landau gate made our driving a lot easier. We had 2 repair issues arise during our stay--wifi failure and stove regulator--and Jeff and Karen really worked swiftly at getting solutions. It was clear that they take great care and pride in their home and for the experience of their guests.

Owner's Response: We are glad you loved our home! You helping with the wifi and stove regulator was so wonderful. We are grateful, but sorry it happened on your vacation. Your stay next year I hope to be smooth sailing! Glad you are coming back. Nothing makes us happier than knowing our guests from year to year.

Delightful Stay in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful two week stay at this gorgeous villa at the Desert Princess in Cathedral city. The Villa was beautifully furnished with everything anyone would want or need during their stay. The breathtaking views right outside the patio with snow covered mountains and beautiful palm trees only added to our delight.The owners were very responsive and helpful, ready to answer our questions and went out of their way to make sure we had a pleasant visit. We were close to everything we wanted to do which included hiking and golfing and dining out. We look forward to returning to this beautiful villa in the future.

Wonderful Palm Springs Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful three week stay at this excellent, 5 star property. The house is immaculate, and it is well designed and comfortable. The kitchen is large, and the nice patio is right along the golf course. Ideal for eating al fresco, relaxing or working in the sunshine. The owners, Karen and Jeff Sugg, are kind and gracious people and helped to make our stay as seamless as possible. Desert Princess is a very nice country club. The house is right next to one of the property’s 32 pools. Tennis/fitness facility are a 10-15 walk away. The people on the property are friendly, always greeting us with a wave and a hello. We spend most of our time in downtown Palm Springs, and it’s about a 10 minute drive. There’s a Starbucks and grocery store down the street. We highly recommend this property. Thanks Karen and Jeff.

Owner's Response: Oh it does my heart good to hear your kind words and read your review! I just wish we could get the weather to be a little nicer to you two in what is usually such a sunny window. Stay in touch and let me know about this year. You are a five star couple!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been staying at Karen's Palm Springs home for 3 years. We couldn't ask for a better property and owner. Karen is very helpful and is always updating the house(not that it needs it). The location is perfect. A view of the green and next tee box. Plus the pool is 50 feet from the house. We love the house and will always stay there.
