Spring Break Stay

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. It was very nicely remodeled and maintened. The kithen was well stocked and beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and close proximity to El Paseo shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend this property to others.

Great trip

5 of 5
I rarely write reviews but in the case I felt it was important to share our experience. Usually- if someone starts off this way-you think ok….this must be bad!! NOT AT ALL- quite the opposite. Everything about our stay was perfect. The house was EXACTLY what we had expected. The description of the house was on point. Everything was super clean. We felt right at home and had every amenity needed. To be honest…even the water pressure was perfect (something I find many times to be lackluster at other rentals). I hope we are able to come out again to the desert as we will request this same house. Thank you.
