Amazing Property - Great for Groups!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a gals weekend. It had every bell and whistle imaginable to make our stay comfortable, fun, and memorable. From the golf carts to the expansive pool, there was no shortage of activities at this house. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend this house for families and large groups alike. The owners of the house were also extremely generous and helpful. We needed assistance turning on the spa, and the owner arrived out the house at moment's notice and was more than happy to help us out. Overall, great experience. I hope to return soon!

Gonna keep it short and sweet, when renting a house you need to be cautious as pictures usually make them look better. For the kunkles this was not the case at all, the pictures did not do justice on how amazing this house was and how great the kunkles are! Came with a group of 13 for Coachella and we ended up missing quite a bit of the shows due to not wanting to leave the beautiful backyard. The family was amazing and extremely helpful with anything we needed at all, came stocked with plenty of extras along with help for amenities around the valley to go see and do. Will 10 out of 10 be hopefully renting this house again and cannot wait! Special thank you to Tyler and his family for welcoming us and making our vacation that of a lifetime!

Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families of 4 and had more than enough room for everyone to do their own thing. This was by far the best rental we have ever stayed at. We were there for 8 nights and could have easily stayed another week. The back yard was simply amazing. There were games everyone could play and the pool was so warm and well taken care of. I can’t think of anything that could have been improved.

The house in it's prime would have been great but sadly it has not been taken care of. The pool, backyard, and gardens are nice, but the house and all the furnishings have been neglected. Three families stayed here for 6 nights. Here is a list of things to consider before you rent this house: Furniture is old and dirty, linens on the beds are bad quality, none of the 4 bathrooms had any soap, body wash or tissue paper, fridges are missing shelves and handles fell off, and fridge outside at tiki bar doesn't work, TV outside does not work, BBQ is literally falling apart, none of the wine, water glasses match, food and dirt inside of the cupboards, plastics are thrown into the cupboards, spices the owner left were a tray of grease and dust coverered empty containers, drawers in the kitchen were filled with junk as though someone lives in the house, pantry was a dissaray of dishes you may find at a garage sale, granite on the island is broken, missing pieces and duct taped, scarce hangers in the bedrooms consisted of left over from previous guests shopping or drycleaning, all the walls and light switches were dirty, mold underneath the kitchen sink, old hairbrush, and somones work out shorts in the master bedroom, kitchen cupboards that don't shut, broken buttons on the washer and dryer, paint chipping on outdoor furniture, a closet organizer fell off the wall with the weight of 5 golf shirts, toilet continued to run dispite the owner fixing it, air mattress deflated as teenager slept on it..replaced with a smaller one that was better in that it didn't completely deflate but did lose air, bag of garbage in the freezer upon arrival, an old salad in the fridge, 6 night stay and 5 dishwasher pucks and 3 laundry pucks. This list is for the owners as although they compensated us one night stay and waived the cleaning fee which was the right thing to do, these issues should be dealt with for the next guests.

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!!
