Absolutely amazing place! Private backyard and gorgeous home!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Abril is a gorgeous place! Rudi has it setup great and it’s very well equipped. Everything we needed was there, the place felt like our own home. The home is beautiful and decorated very nicely. This was a perfect vacation and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Rudi was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning until the end. He was always available and easy to reach when we had a couple questions.

The really special part of this place is the gorgeous back yard! The pool, spa and patio area is perfect and the yard is well landscaped with fruits trees and plants. The outdoor furniture is great and the double lounger was awesome for enjoying a day in the sun. It’s a nice private backyard and he has the schedule listed of when the gardener and pool guy comes for maintenance once per week. There is a great bbq outside and he even had an extra bottle of propane on hand. He has thought of everything!

We cannot say anything but positives about this place and cannot wait to go back! I highly recommend this place if you want to enjoy some nice peace and quiet, but be close to all the amenities and services of the surrounding Palm Springs area.

Thanks Rudi for everything! You’re a great host and your place is amazing! We will be back soon.

Great location for a relaxing week with my wife and our dogs. Home was well equiped for those that like to cook, pool/patio furnishings were very nice. My only recommnedation to those renting in the winter is that if you want to use the pool, let Rudi know in advance as it takes time to warm it up.

Wonderful pool area

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Casa Abril for just over 2 weeks and loved the house and pool area. The house is situated in a quiet residential area with a private backyard full of trees and potted plants which made it feel more homely. There is a large covered patio and a superb pool that is large and slopes to a good depth. The double chaise lounge is a lovely feature. The villa is compact with everything you need for your stay. There are 2 large showers and the master bed was really comfortable.

Thank you for the wonderful experience! My husband and I stayed at Rudi's beautiful home with our two dogs to celebrate our anniversary. The property was bright, clean and perfect for a weekend away with our family. Rudi was very helpful, attentive, and enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend staying here! We hope to be back again soon!
