The home rental surpassed our expectations. Great property that was in great shape, very clean and very well maintained. Felt at home as soon as we walked in. Nicole made the whole checking in - check out process as simple as possible enabling us to begin enjoying our vacation the minute we entered the property. 10 out of 10

Easy check in and everything was easy to use - pool heater, spa and most! Well equipped with everything you have at your own home. Conveniently located in south palm desert. So much to do for young or old - age range of our group was 3 to 62. Awesome trip!
