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.

A Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this Desert Princess property! The home is very well equipped, comfortable, clean and a great size. The location on the golf course makes for beautiful views all day long, and having the pool right beside was definitely a bonus. The owners were great to deal with through the whole rental process as well as during our stay. Thank you for sharing your Cat City home with us - we hope to visit again!

3 glorious weeks

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent, 5 star plus property. First, the home itself is large and very cozy. It has two large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom. There are three nice sized bathrooms. Everything we wanted was stocked in the house (towels, plates, silverware, DVD player, etc.) 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. Perfect for eating outside on sunny days. The garage door is automatic, and we didn’t even have to leave our car to get inside. Second, the owners, Karen and Jeff Sugg, are super people. They take their obligations as owners very seriously. They were very responsive to all of our needs, and they even drove up to put our Amazon orders into the house so that they would be there when we arrived. Now, that’s service! Third, 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 tennis instructor, Charlie Moore, is very good and runs drills almost every day (for $20). The people on the property are friendly. (It’s nice coming from a big city to have people wave and say 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.

Country Club with Golf Course View

This three bedroom home provided accommodations for our family of six during our recent desert vacation.

The owners were very accommodating to our requests and quick to resolve any issues with the home. The proximity to the pool is excellent. The home is well stocked for living comfortably.

Great Country Club, Great House

  • 5 of 5

Desert Princess is a nice middle class place to stay. This house is nice because it has a golf course view. Beds are good, house is clean. Homeowner easy and prompt to deal with. Golf course reasonably priced. Wi Fi great. Palm Springs restaurants are becoming more upscale, more numerous and better than they used to be. El Gallito remains a treat. Walkway up tram road makes for good exercise, if you like that sort of thing.
