Vacation property experience

5 of 5
We had a great vacation at this property. The home layout worked well for the 6 of us (4 adults and 2 young children). The outside patio area ( dining/pool/spa) was well utilized throughout our stay. Overall we were very pleased with our rental decision and would definitely stay at this property again. The rental mgmt company was nice to work with as well; so that was appreciated.

WE loved our stay at Desert Breezes. The accommodations were not only beautiful but oh so comfortable. The location to the BNP Paribas was perfect. We enjoyed the short walk, so easy and close!! The area is well equipped with pools, tennis courts and workout facility.... everything one needs to vacation in style. Wish we had more time to enjoy all the amenities.... Oh, one last thing....loved, loved the fragrant citrus trees on our walks!!
