Nice House for Outdoor Lounging

  • 4 of 5

Nice house in a quiet neighborhood. Backyard was attractive with several fruit trees. We enjoyed the outside patio and lounging area in the shade. This allowed my wife, who wanted the sun, and I to still be together during the day. Only wished the cable had been working outside and in the bedroom.

Terrific location, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific 2-bedroom home in Palm Springs. Our 2 teenage boys loved the pool and hot tub. The home is convenient to downtown Palm Springs shops, and within 30 minutes drive of all the great golf courses in the Coachella Valley. Bathrooms and home is clean and comfortable. We will call definitely call Glenn stay here again the next time we are in the area.

Lovely place, wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We spent most of the week between Christmas and New Year's weekend at Serenity. What a lovely home! Although it was just my husband and me, the home is perfect for two couples. The rooms are comfortably furnished and the house was very clean and well-provisioned. Rob, our host, was graciously willing to work with our changing arrival time (traffic delays and a flat tire), and could not have been more helpful. Rob also owns a restaurant in Palm Springs, Bongo Johnnie's - great food - we recommend it! We paid the extra fee to have the pool heated since it was a cool week, and it was definitely worth it. The pool and the surrounding landscaping was just lovely - the mountains in the near distance give just the perfect touch. I must have taken 50 pictures of the backyard and pool! In short, the experience could not have been better.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Glens property the week of July 21 2015 (5 nights). It was 2 adults and one child, a girls weekend that was perfect because of this property! Property was immaculate everything you could possible think of was provided-dishes, pool towels,board games, extra blankets pillows ect. We spent most of our time by the pool which was large and completely secluded because of the beautiful landscaping. We also loved the over sized jacuzzi. Plenty of places to eat close by within a mile or 2 and the neighborhood is very nice, well kept and quiet. We were an all girl group and we felt completely safe, there is an alarm system which is one of the most important features I think in a vacation rental. We arrived early and they were very accommodating. We will defiantly be renting again soon and referring. You cant go wrong with this property.

Absolutely Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, we loved it! It was perfect for the 4 of us, one of which was a toddler. The house has a warm and modern design blended with a wonderful coziness - and with so many thoughtful details. The backyard pool area is magnificent with an incredible view of the mountains - lovely, lovely! We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you Glen for making our stay so wonderful!

Perfect Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. The back yard was well manicured and reminded us of some of the nice resorts we've stayed at. The pool was a little too cold to use in January, but it can be heated (we elected not to heat the pool). Heating the spa, however, is included so we made use of it (a good way to end the day). While we didn't us the pool, we did notice that, at least in January, a good portion of the pool was shaded from the sun most of the day. We also enjoyed the outdoor living area which provides a nice break from the sun while still enjoying the beautiful back yard.

As for the indoors, the house has an open floor plan was the just the right size for us (with some room to spare). The décor is modern and is either well maintained or was recently remodeled. The master bedroom has an adjoining master bath with a sunken in tiled shower/tub. The water pressure is great too (probably a detail only I appreciate). There's a second bath located off of the hallway which is convenient if you are in the living room or if you are coming in from the pool/spa.

The owners' attention to detail was evident throughout and was a pleasant surprise. The pantry was stocked with plenty of extras (paper plates, napkins, paper towels, etc.), which came in very handy. They thought of everything and literally left nothing out. It made our stay so enjoyable. We would definitely return and would recommend this VRBO to family and friends. 5 out of 5 stars.

El Rancho Vista Estates was the first of the Wexler & Harrison residential subdivisions. Developer Roy Fey, a former Chicago accountant who came to the desert and developed a small real estate empire, built it. He saw the potential Southern California Modernist architecture had in the emerging post-war housing market. His belief in the product led him to use the street name “East Avenida Fey Norte” to memorialize his involvement in the development – a not uncommon practice among residential developers. The development is a collection of approximately 75 single-family homes located northeast of the Palm Springs International Airport, accessed via Vista Chino.
