Spectacular oasis just outside of Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a three bedroom, with pool for a family vacation. We chose palm springs/cathedral city because we had a daytrip to Anaheim and daytrip to San Diego planned. This house exceeded our expectations! It was our 4th VRBO/HomeAway stay. The balance between luxury and livability (I wasn't worried about our kiddo breaking anything) was wonderful.

The pool was perfect, we were visiting from Alaska in December and when we weren't on the road, we were in the backyard! Very, very private backyard! The fireplace patio and master bathroom are on my home improvement project list for back home - they were amazing. BTW: The service guys for the pool and yard were very friendly and efficient.

The kitchen was one of the best stocked I've seen in a rental! Plenty of dishes, utensils, cookware... very good quality. The pantry hold some miscellaneous items/spices to enhance your grocery/cooking supplies. The owner was friendly and very responsive, we just got back from a Florida VRBO which reminded me we had not yet completed this review.

The neighborhood is very quiet, I'd say maybe a dozen or so houses in a gated area. I asked my husband if he wanted to stay here again or checkout a different house next time we visit the area - hand down he is sold on this house for every trip. Highly recommend as very family friendly.

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house!! We came down for a girls weekend and the house was just as it was presented online We loved our stay. It was well stocked with the basics. The kitchen had everything you would need to make any type of meal. The owener was a pleasure to work with when needed and would reply to all Email. Excellent outdoor space as it felt like we were all alone. We paid to heat the pool and it was well worth it. The house is located in a small gated community but was easily accessed. We would definitely book again!!!

Perfect home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing--beautifully decorated, very clean, super soft linens and towels, a well-supplied kitchen, and all the fireplaces!!! The pool and hot tub were just the right size and fires on the patio made for relaxing evenings. Can't wait to come back!
