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!

My New Get-Away Retreat!

5 of 5
My brother's family came to Palm Desert to visit my mom so I rented this house for all of us. It was perfect! The location was ideal as my mom lives in Palm Desert Greens, right across the street. The pool and hot tub in a gorgeous setting made for a family oasis. My niece and I spent lots of time swimming and we all enjoyed relaxing in the yard. The house is beautiful and the casita was my own separate little five star suite. We will be back soon!
