Had many kitchen gadgets and basic food items not normally available in rentals which made it real nice if/when you forgot to buy something. Bed was comfortable. Plenty of room. Only item was need to fix shower head in master bath.

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!
