About Susan Burnside
My husband and I love it here in Rancho Mirage. We enjoy golf, but love to come and relax even more. The desert is a very unique place, it has many healing therapy qualities that only exist here. We just can't get enough of this beautiful palm springs weather and living!
Susan Burnside purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Susan Burnside chose Rancho Mirage
This is our second home. It is very special to us and is not a full time rental. It is available for only a portion of the year so guests can enjoy it as much as we do. We would love for you to enjoy it year after year and feel like it was your special home too.
What makes this Condo unique
Golfers paradise and spectacular views! We love to sit in the back yard overlooking the pool and waterfall watching the golfers go by. In the morning we sip coffee read the paper in the courtyard and wait for our tee time to come around.

What a Beautiful Home!
You know that you're a welcome guest when you find a gift basket of wines and gourmet snacks in the kitchen when you arrive...AND an assortment of toiletries in the bathroom! The home, furnishings and spectacular views exceeded our expectations. We loved the location in Rancho Mirage too -- right in the heart of the area we most enjoy. The home is VERY comfortable for a couple and just as inviting if you have visitors staying with you in the second King-bed guest room. But why would you want to share the privacy and beauty of a deluxe rental that feels like home? The highlight of our vacation was relaxing on the patio chaise lounges in the afternoon shade and reading while enjoying the view. We look forward to returning next year.
We appreciate your kind words, so glad you both enjoyed your stay.
No Stars For This One
There were many problems with this rental, adding up to our decision to leave 8 days before the one-month lease expired. Where to start?
1: The king pillow-top mattress in the master bedroom had been flipped over so that we were sleeping on the bottom of the mattress. Be advised that the “guest side” of a mattress was never meant to be slept on- aching backs and little sleep the result.
2: Cell phone reception was absolutely terrible. Because there was no land-line for incoming calls, we missed 19 calls in the first 3 days. So much for keeping in touch with the family!
3: The patio faces north and in consequence direct sunlight arrives late in the afternoon. Not that it much matters because about 90% of the “patio” is a swimming pool. A very cold pool because so little sunlight falls on it.
4: Because of the size of the pool there was only room for a table and chairs. Two chaise-lounge sat untouched because there was no place to drag them into what little sun there was.
4:Two ducks seemed to like the pool and did what ducks do best- paddle and poop. I had no idea until this vacation that duck feces sinks to the bottom, but now I know, just as I know that between the poop and the frigid water, not so much as a toe went into that pool.
5: If we wanted to bring in a guest, we had to first call the owner (see (2) and provide the guest’s names. The owner then (one hoped) approved and provided the info and a security code to “Command Center” which in turn checked our guest’s ID and opened the gate. We greatly resented this procedure; had we been trusted with the security code we’d have avoided the guest vetting, but we were denied the number and suffered the humiliation.
6: We damaged a chair, secured a written estimate for $265.00 from the most highly qualified repairman in the area and notified the owner. The owner submitted an insurance claim for $825.00 suggesting there was “structural damage”. The claim has been denied by the insurer because there is nothing to support this claim- no details, no estimates- nothing but a number pulled out of thin air. So, instead of receiving payment for a legitimate claim of $265.00, the owner is withholding that amount from my deposit.
I shall be very surprised if I ever see it.
7:Four words sum up this disastrous trip; “Never again, Caveat Emptor”.
Nice Condo, Great View of Golf Course
My husband and I spent 6 weeks in this wonderful condo. We had two other couples that stayed with us for part of the stay. We all enjoyed sitting by the pool each afternoon/evening watching the golfers, listening to the waterfall. The condo was well appointed and the master suite was wonderful. The owners were very nice and without being intrusive checked with us on occasion to see if everything was OK. There was even a welcome basket upon our arrival.
Thank You Nancy and Dan, So glad you enjoyed your stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautifull condo.We stayed here for 28 days & we had family reunions with our children & spouses at different times over this period.We hope to do this again some time at this same place.
Comfortable, clean and quiet!
My wife and I spent 3 wonderful weeks at Susan and Bob's place at Mission Hills! We had a very smooth arrival and were extremely happy with the place itself, the amenities and location looking out onto the golf course. We felt very comfortable throughout our stay; there was even a lovely welcome basket to help us ring in the New Year!
Susan was easy to deal with all the way along and very responsive to our questions when we had them.
Overall, we were extremely happy with our stay and look forward to coming back!
Our week-long vacation was absolutely wonderful. The property was beautifully maintained and had a wonderful home-like feeling. We enjoyed the golf course and the proximity to many delicious restaurants, shopping, and activities. We also enjoyed the very calmning feel to it. It was very quiet and private. All the appliances were brand-new. The view from the kitchen out onto the golf course was amazing. We enjoyed preparing our meals inside and then relaxing outside on the very comfortable patio furniture. We also liked the fact that the Westin Hotel and Spa were a very short distance away, where we enjoyed the facilities there. Overall, my husband and I would definitely stay here again, and are planning to stay much longer next time. I would recommend this lovely home to my family and friends.
Dear SJG and GG, It was a pleasure to meet you both. Thank you for your lovely review, Im so happy you enjoyed the golf course, amazing view, restaurants, and other ammenities of our home. We look forward to seeing you again and returning to experience another wonderful stay.
