Great Place to Escape the Winter Blues!

  • 5 of 5

We visited here last winter and were thoroughly impressed with the whole experience. It was located near great amenities, golf courses and dining. The house itself is clean, well maintained and had all of the amenities we needed. Would highly recommend.

Great Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

My winter escape from Chicago. Stayed at this house for 4 months. This is one of the best houses I rented. I have been at Ojai, Laguna beach and Redondo beach for the past three years for winter. House is in a gated community close to town and close to windmills. House is open and spacious. Kitchen is well equipped. Loved having the Casita. Great place to entertain my golf buddies from Chicago. Nice backyard where we spent drinking morning coffee and evening tea. Few steps from the house is Jacuzzi. I used to enjoy the Jacuzzi looking at the surrounding mountains. Only problem was the reception on my cell phone was poor and intermittent. However they have free local and long distance unlimited calling with their landline. You have to rent a PO box. Home owner and Manager were very responsive and quickly resolved issues promptly. All in all, it was a great place to stay and I may return again in the future.

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this property for a long weekend of golf in the Palm Springs area. The house was very reasonably priced and absolutely immaculate. All the instructions we received were very clear and easily followed. I will definitely be checking the availability of this house on all my future visits to the area. Thank you Donna and Elizabeth for a wonderful stay.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great place for our family of 8 adults to get together. The living area and kitchen are spacious. We enjoyed cooking together and having good conversations at the dining table. The 3 bathrooms made it easy to get ready for going out or clean up after our wonderful hike on the San Jacinto mountain. The home was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking.

The location is wonderful, close to the Palm Springs Areal Tram and downtown Palm Springs with many great restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is very quite and peaceful. We would recommend this house to anyone that needs a larger place to gather.

January stay in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

This home definitely had great view of the mountains, as well as plenty of space inside - including a huge master bedroom and kitchen. It was extremely clean and well appointed, with comfortable beds and

just about everything else a person could want. The owners were very helpful with many good suggestions and lots of great information. The casita was great for the couple that appreciated a bit more privacy. Our family gathering there was wonderful!

Vacation Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was dreamy from start to finish. The owners made our vacation planning a breeze. The second we stepped through the door, we felt right at home and knew we had made the right decision. The rooms were as spacious as the pictures showed, especially the master bedroom with a huge ensuite bath. Loved having our coffee and croissants in the backyard with the morning light illuminating the spectacular mountain views. We barbecued out there in the evening with the stars looking down on us. The house has the kitchen of my dreams and the amenities throughout made us feel quite pampered during our stay. Truly a sanctuary, this peaceful home was the perfect vacation spot.
