We thoroughly enjoyed our time as a family in your home. The views are spectacular!!

We also had a strong wind storm which added to the excitement. Thank you again!

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family reunion, and it was everything we were looking for. The home was nicely appointed and very quiet and private, and we enjoyed the amazing views, especially at night while sitting in the spa. Everything worked well, and the kitchen was well stocked. Very nice, and we'd definitely rent again if in the area - highly recommended. Tim, the property manager, was very helpful with the orientation. The location was close to Joshua Tree and Pioneertown, which we visited on alternate days.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Four friends and I spent a long weekend at the house. Great location -- way above the palm springs valley. Amazing view. The heated pool and spa is a wonderful end of the day place to relax and view the city. Plenty of space for all of us. The property backs up to open land that stretches up into the hills. We went for a great run one morning. We were also close to Joshua Tree National Park and went for a lovely hike another day. Given the great location, we felt no need to go out and cooked virtually all our meals. They had a great collection of spices and condiments you could use and contribute to. One possible improvement would be to update the kitchen and add some new cookware. One final note -- the local property manager, Tim, is a great resource. He is responsive and very helpful.

Amazing Weekend at an Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our weekend was wonderful! Tim, the property manager, was a pleasure to work with. He even brought is doughnuts and the Sunday paper on the day we were checking out.

The property itself is wonderfully decorated and maintained. I'm not sure if that's the owner, or the property managers, or a combination of both, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The pool alone is worth a visit, not to mention the fabulous view you have of the entire valley.

Its all about the view

  • 4 of 5

The view from this beautifully set house is indeed spectacular at any hour.

The house is roomy but not particularly well appointed, for instance , there's dining room seating for 12, but only a couch for 4 (5 in a squeeze) in the living room.

The MBR bath is huge and well appointed but has no door on it, so sounds travel into the bedroom, and showering is a bit chilly.

Operationally, we had some challenges with the hot tub heating and the fireplaces in the MBR and living room don't work. ( again, the view from the tub and very pretty endless pool make up for a lot)

The house was not stocked with basics like napkins, pot scrubbers, soap and toilet paper , and a dirty bath mat in the master was a big turn off (Management was quickly responsive to all). Windows ( there are lots and the views from all are wonderful) should be cleaned.

A house book with house and area information would be a welcome addition.

All in all a good experience, but for the price, we hope that the owner steps up ( and not just rest on the gorgeous views)

330 degrees of spectacular

  • 5 of 5

The estate has so many beautiful qualities it's hard to determine just a few highlights. Although this house is about 40 minutes from actual Joshua Tree Park, it's very convenient from the highway and actual grocery stores. It was so relaxing to return to after a long day hiking in the park. There is no need to go out to dinner! The kitchen is equipped with all the tools and laid out to prep a nice family dinner.

The property manager was fantastic as well. He made himself completely available for anything we needed. The spa had trouble heating up when we arrive and he responded immediately via phone. He was able to reset it from his phone and have it heated by the next morning. What service! A beautiful home with lovely surroundings. A must stay!
