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!

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!
