This was the most amazing place to stay!! We didn’t leave the backyard- a desert oasis!! A gem!

  • 5 of 5

The Kunkles were great- Tyler replied quickly to my email and Doc Kunkle met us at the house and showed us the ropes. He was quick to answer any questions that we had during our stay. The house and backyard easily accommodated all 9 of us- we didn’t want to leave!!! It was spacious, clean and beautiful! Thank you for the great experience!!

What an amazing home and what kind hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

The Kunkle's home was perfect for our New Years getaway with five couples! The backyard is phenomenal - so much fun hanging out by the pool. We took full advantage: grilled, used the hot tub, played lawn games - it was an excellent way to spend our days in the desert. The house itself was also wonderful. It was clean, spacious, had comfy furniture, and included all the other necessities (kitchen supplies, linens, etc.). Lastly, I can't say enough about the Kunkle family. From the moment we booked our trip, to the moment we checked out, the Kunkle's were welcoming and responsive hosts. Frankly, they are just classy, kind people. We can't wait to make another trip out sometime soon!!

We were in the desert for my daughters wedding that was at Indian Wells country club. We rented this home, and had a great time. We did the rehearsal dinner there, and everyone had a great time. We will be coming back to visit.

What an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

No need to leave the property, the home has everything to keep you entertained!

The host is very generous with his time and wants you to "party" it up.

The amenities are awesome and the home is clean and well stocked.

Before we left we were already planning our next trip to the oasis!

Thank you for everything!!!
