Guestbook comments from the owner

Our two week holiday was most enjoyable at the Ventura in Cathedral City. We liked the location, which is accessible to many shopping venues and golf courses, within a short drive. It was a quiet neighbourhood and we used outdoor features extensively. The property felt luxurious and was well equipped for the three couples. The pictures of the Ventura are accurate, being well kept and up to date. Management was very helpful with educating us on the pool/hot tub system and we appreciated that our 10 year old Lhasa Apso was accommodated. We would highly recommend this property and we hope to return in 2015.

Memorial Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was great! The house itself is extremely big and comfortable. The heated pool and fire pit are a big plus. The owner Ben was extremely detailed and very helpful. We were having trouble figuring out how to heat the pool at 8 AM and Ben personally called us early in the morning and walked us through it. I would recommend this home to all sorts of groups; families with small kids, party goers, and couples! We finally found a home we can continuously book with and we will be returning very soon! Thank you Ben!

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

The house was simply beautiful and quite luxurious. Very nicely decorated, very clean - with everything you would ever need. I didn't catch this prior to the stay, but keep in mind there are gardeners that come Friday morning and a pool boy comes Saturday morning. Not a big deal - as the pool boy came so early we were still sleeping. We lost a little bit of pool time on Friday morning while the gardeners finished up - but nothing more than an hour.

Backyard is gorgeous and very well maintained. Overall, I definitely recommend this property and the owners were lovely to communicate and work with.

Fun for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (including 2 college students and one high schooler) totally enjoyed our stay in this spacious home in a nice, quiet neighborhood! The best part was the pool and hot tub in the backyard where we spent most of our time. The home had everything we needed and Ben was so responsive to any questions. We would certainly recommend this home and consider staying here again!

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our weekend here. The location was perfect for the little bit of running around we did. We really enjoyed the living area with plenty of space to spread out. The backyard, pool, spa, and BBQ were in great shape and we enjoyed spending most of our days outside. The kitchen was perfect for our group, large and well equipped. Beds were comfy, plenty of towels, and equipment instructions were clear. l

Well manicured and clean. Had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and very much enjoyed the backyard pool and fire pit. The extra large fridge was also a bonus. The garage had plenty of room to park two vehicles. We will be highly recommending this property to friends and family.

Great place but don't expect your deposit back.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic pool, hot-tub, kitchen, and living space.

However, we noticed a broken tile on the hot tub (terrible design and/or build as a former construction superintendent) and a crack in an exterior door from the master bath the morning after we arrived when we had daylight. While taking pictures of the home and pool area, I took pictures of those two items thinking it would be good to have in case the owner asked. FYI the door to the master bath has a "shattered" look to it so it's understandable how this could've been overlooked prior to our arrival and we DID NOT cause the damage.

To make a long story short, we were accused of doing the damage to the door and the bulk of our deposit was not returned to pay for the expense. Nothing we said could sway the owner to convince him that the damage was not done by us.

Moreover, prepare to supply your own paper products while you are down here--only one roll of paper towels and 4 rolls of TP for a one week stay.

Owner's Response: Our Rental agreement clearly states that if the home isn't clean or if there is damage to the property at check-in, the Owner is to be notified right away. This guest never mentioned it up during their stay. We even had our cleaning service come do a pre-clean (1 hour before check-in) to ensure the property was perfect which included a dusting of the windows in back and they didn't see a broken window. My cleaning service reported the damage after the guest checked out. The glass is clean plain glass and the shattered look was because it was shattered safety glass. We have had other guests call us to let us know they broke a wine glass and other little things (of which are no big deal and normal wear and tear) as they were concerned about their deposit. But a broken window (probably an accident) is over and above and we felt that the guest was responsible. Our guests book with us knowing that they only get a starter supply of paper products, shampoo and soap. We returned the deposit less the cost of the repair.
