The property was exactly as described. Perfect location. Easy drive into town & easy access to the Park. We enjoyed short hikes in the Park with our parents in their 80's and longer hikes for us middle aged folks. The first day of our stay it rained, so we made a day of it; driving through the Park and going to Palm Springs to sample the famous date shake. It was helpful to have information about how everything functioned; in the welcome folder and the little signs here and there in the house. Our extended family each had their own bedroom (the quality of the linens was appreciated), the kitchen was great (for serious cooks), we marveled at the high performing awesome dishwasher, we were happy there was a grill and charcoal and the large couches created a sweet conversation area (we rearranged them for our stay - and put them back of course). It was especially nice to have a washer and dryer since we were coming from 5 days of rustic tent camping. The hot tub delivered the milky way and bright star filled sky. When the power went out for many hours one evening/night it was super good to have 2 easy-to-find functioning flash lights. It was very useful to have a "before you leave" check list. We had a lovely time. P.S. Check out the solid marble "Party Cat" in the neighborhood. Just plain weird.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

This modern house is perfect for two couples traveling with separate casitas for the master bedroom and guest bedroom, both with private baths. The main house adjoins the pool and spa and an outdoor kitchen and is great for relaxing and hanging with friends. The house and grounds are totally private and well maintained as well which makes it feel like your own private retreat. Loved it and plan to stay here again in the future - highly recommend.

The rooms were clean and cozy. The patio's have comfortable furnishings for an early morning coffee with great views or an evening cocktail with friends. Jason was very accommodating and friendly. The clubhouse/pools were better maintained than our last stay. This is great spot for a relaxing end of summer vacation.
