An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This property is large and accommodating. Wonderful space to relax both indoors and outdoors. Kitchen is fully equipped and the bedrooms and the furnishings are superb. We are experienced travellers and our stay here was right up there with the very best. We had the pleasure of meeting Roger and Maureen and they are lovely. Would definitely go back and stay again. We feel very lucky that we found this place.

A great place for a family

  • 4 of 5

The lay out was outstanding for a family with grandparents, parents and two toddlers. Having the interior patio where the kids could use their scooters or play without worrying that they could wander to the pool or something was awesome. The most important thing in the desert for me is the air conditioning which worked well.

So much potential

  • 3 of 5

We have been coming to the desert for years and we were really looking forward to our stay in Sandpiper. We left with mixed feelings. The design , the overall setting and the ambiance of Sandpiper is/was great. However, the unit we stayed in left much to be desired. It was dated, especially the kitchen, the cabinets and the countertops. The unit itself was very spacious but the kitchen was very small and not well stocked lacking juice pitchers, containers for leftovers and not a sharp knife to be found. The unit really needs a thorough cleaning including the carpets which were spotted. Roger, the owner, was nice and was available if we needed him. Lastly, be aware that the garage is probably 200 yds from the front door of the unit. So when you move in and out and if you golf you have to carry everything from the unit to your car. Not impossible just not very convenient. I have to say we still enjoyed ourselves and the view from the patio overlooking the pool was wonderful! Also being within walking distance of "El Paseo" with all its restaurants and shopping was great.

Two month stay Jan and Feb 2017

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Roger and Maureen's condo. The unit is exactly as shown and discussed in the VRBO listing - very comfortable and convenient to many restaurants and downtown Palm Desert with new appliances and a great private heated pool. The owner was great to work with when any questions arose. We'll be back next year !

Perfect Festival Weekend Rental

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I came down to Palm Desert for the Stagecoach Music Festival. Not only was the condo an inexpensive uber trip to the nearest shuttle stop, but there was so much room and plenty of sleeping accommodations for the 8 people in my group. The condo is beautiful and has everything you could want for a weekend getaway - inner courtyard, outer courtyard, near the pool, spacious lawn (shared by several condos). We had the most incredible weekend and are already talking about returning next year! Thank you so much Roger and Maureen!!
