An absolute A-1 experience!

  • 5 of 5

Marlene was an incredible host. Her place was perfect for our group who was attending Coachella. Her hospitality cannot be matched and we are so grateful she accommodated us when there weren't to many properties left to book. We 100% recommend staying here and will definitely do it again if we get the chance!

Owner's Response: Beverly, it was an absolute pleasure communicating with you too! Just yesterday you wrote : Hi Marlene! Just wanted to say your house is absolutely beautiful! We are so thrilled to be staying here! Beverly, the pleasure was mine. I was thinking of you while watching Lady Gaga on YouTube. I'm so glad that you selected me and my condo as part of your Coachella experience.

Great Condo! Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are remodeling our home and was lucky to find this great condo for my family. We stayed 3 months.The condo was clean, modern and well equipped with everything that we needed. Had a Feng Shui look and nice energy. Both the living room and bedroom were on the fairway. It was in a perfect location as the website said. Only a 3 minute walk to the Clubhouse from the condo! I would start my day by going to the Athletic Club with the group classes of my choice (they have a paper schedule you can have) and work out with their new machines. The Athletic Club is large, with 2 workout rooms and 1 for classes. Then I’d go for a swim in their heated salt water Olympic Swimming Pool and have a snack or lunch at their pool side eatery…Boggies. Shower off, using their amenities for my hair and body and then my day would begin.

The large barbecue was automatic and extremely easy to use. The kitchen was well stocked. Both bedrooms had a King bed and the den had a leather sofa queen bed. The Master bedroom had luxury black out drapes and the window opened to the patio and had a tint/sun filter. The 2nd bedroom also had a king bed, which was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. I asked Marlene the details so that I could possible buy one for my home.

The renting process was simple and convenient and Marlene was quick to respond. I feel that we really got a great place. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Condo and Host for the Stage Coach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time staying at Marlene's place for Stagecoach. The house looked just like the pictures and was very pleasant. The included amenities made me and my friends feel like we were right at home. There is even a washer and dryer in the unit. The unit had a garage and driveway so there was plenty of parking available. The house is located in a gated community so we always felt safe. The neighbors and staff in the community were extremely nice and helpful. Though we never took advantage of it because we were busy at Stagecoach, the community also has plenty of activities to do. Marlene was a great host before, during, and after our stay. She was delightful to talk to and she responded to my messages almost immediately, no matter what time of day. Marlene gets the highest rating I can give a host, I truly felt like she was trying to do everything she could to make our stay as pleasant as it could be, and she went above and beyond what she was required to do. You are in great hands with her as your host. I would surely rent from Marlene again, without hesitation. Thank you so much Marlene!

Description is nicer than reality.

  • 3 of 5

The condo is situated in the beautifully designed and very well kept Palm Valley Country Club with two 18 holes golfcourses. This is really a 5* Country Club. The 46 pools and jacuzzis are free, but we paid $ 18 p.p.p.d. for the gym and $ 10 p.p.p.d. for a tenniscourt. The condo itself is average, the amenities are fine. Under "Entertainment" in the description is mentioned a CD-player as first item. Music is very important for us. We looked everywhere, but there was no CD-player at all. That was very disappointing. The living room is nice with a mirrored wall and has a rather new pink carpet and a purple sofa, on which the guests are not allowed to eat or to drink. The bed in the guest bedroom is fine, but the bed in the master bedroom is so hard, old and worn that we changed beds halfway our stay so that we each could have some good nights. Kitchen and bath rooms are also old and for the photo of the entire kitchen the photographer has used a lense that makes the kitchen out of proportions. The large kitchen closet and some drawers contained a big mess. Broadband internet was the best we had in all rentals, but during our stay the owner expected that we would stay in the condo on the 2nd day of our stay from 12 - 5 PM (with 1 day notice), because a new internet provider had to change the cables and an adult had to be present. The appointment was made long before our reservation. We refused. Later we heard from acqaintances that the job in and outside this condo took 1 1/2 days. We enjoyed our stay in the Palm Valley C.C. very much, we'll certainly come back, but then we'll check the VRBO website for better offers.

Owner's Response: Bartjens so sorry it did not meet with your expectations. I had tried to accommodate you with every request you made. I had looked at my description and could not find mention of a CD player. I.however have 2 state of the art players in each bedroom and Blu-ray Disc Players. After your departure I had remodeled both bathrooms, hallway and kitchen with recessed LED lighting, dimmers and contemporary screw less plates that are beautiful as well as functional. The cable guy was at my place exactly at the time I had called you for permission. There would have been no waiting, but I understand that you did not want him to disturb you. Before you moved in you requested that I give you a discount even though it was a holiday week, Thanksgiving, because VRBO charged their service fee. I accommodated you with your request, even though I had not done that before. I was just trying to make you happy. All of my prior reviews by past guests are accurate. Everyone does think my place is beautiful, comfortable, spotless with a great location...and now the new LED recessed lights makes it even more wonderful. FYI - After your stay, there is a couple renting my place for 4.5 months who commented that it was beautiful when they first arrived and are very happy.

Fabulous stay in a comfortable and well-kept home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous vacation in a comfortable well-appointed home with an excellent location. The owner was extremely responsive, attending to our every need, including quick attention to minor repairs as soon as I let her know of them. I highly recommend her home.
