The place was very clean and well-maintained. Kenny was there when we arrived and showed us around. We had an amazing time with our two teenage sons. It was perfect with the separate buildings around the pool. The outdoor amenities were amazing, loved the pool and loved the convenient private outdoor shower right off the master bathroom. We played a lot of golf, golfcourses were cheap during summer and when we played during twilight it was even cheaper. We had dinner @ Spencer which was very good. We also loved to have diner @ P.F. Chang and the Cheesecake Factory, both @The River in Rancho Mirage. Desert Premium Outlet shops are about 30 minutes by car. We really recommend this property!

We stayed in the rental with two bedrooms/two baths which adjoin two other rentals making it feel like a small boutique hotel. Although the pool area is shared, each rental has purposefully designed private patio space. The furnishings and decor were thoughtfully selected and create a comfortable and stylish charm. The A/C worked well given the 110 degree temperatures. The highlight for us was the pool with comfortable lounge furniture and floaties. We also made good use of the well-stocked kitchen and grill area. Lastly, the location on the free Buzz Bus line is ideal for quick commutes to the strip. We will stay soon again and appreciated the owners responsiveness and hospitality.
