Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect amount of space and charm for our group of 12. We were in Palm Springs for a conference and it was so much better than staying in a hotel!! We were able to have outdoor workouts, have meals together in the dining room, and enjoy the beautiful gardens. it was perfect! Not much to add - all of the details have been thought of and amenities are perfect. Everyone was SO fabulous and prompt in their communication and support!

Large, Posh Home

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 of us, all family, including two little ones. The floor plan with great separation of space worked well for us. There were two adjoining rooms for kids and their parents and more secluded, separated rooms for the younger couples. Our master suite was sumptuous. The staff were all prompt and efficient in their responses.
