5/5 Excellent

Long Weekend in Palm Springs
Great value for the price. Super convenient location. I cook and the kitchen was super functional. Great pool and hot tub. Bathrooms super nice. The only potential drawback of the property is that the house is on a corner lot with one of the streets being a major thoroughfare. I was a little apprehensive but it ended up being somewhat of a non issue for me. It was more city noise than anything and by the end of the trip I didn't notice it as much. Also one less neighbor. I would definitely rent the house again without hesitation.

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful, easy time!
The house, yard and pool are lovely--very clean, comfortable and peaceful. The check-in and out process was very easy, and they kept in touch and gave us everything we needed throughout. Grocery shopping is within walking distance including a natural foods store. There's also a bike rental shop nearby. Really perfect location. We loved it.

Shag Lover lover
Had a lovely time! Great pool (with a deep end - kind of rare for the dip pools of Palm Springs). My two small fur babies loved the backyard with grass. Loved the midcentury modern dream of a house. Plus made some fresh squeezed grapefruit juice from the tree out back for breakfast. Such a relaxing time with my family as a safe getaway after being on COVID lockdown for so many months. House was very clean and everything was easy to use/find. Loved it!

4/5 Good

Gorgeous all around
We loved the house and the grounds however it's located on a fairly busy street, Sunrise Way, so we could hear cars all day. We would have appreciated knowing this, but perhaps it's in the reviews that we did not read. That said, they have a fountain to try to mask the sound. And the grounds and views are really lovely. The house was perfect for our small group. Very clean and well kept. Slept like a baby both nights!

3/5 Okay

Great property
Loved the look/feel of the house and pool area. Great views from back yard. AC was lacking (wouldn’t go below 82•, with no air movement, so felt too warm inside). On a fairly busy street, but car noise is well-masked by fountain when outside.
