Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great experience. Everything was provided. We had a great time. We just had a hard time with the TVs in the family and living room. They aren't user-friendly. Instructions were given, and our engineer companions followed them, but the living room TV didn't have any sound, and it took us significant amount of time to figure out the TV in the family room. It's hard for us to be out of the loop when it comes to news affairs. Overall, the house is clean and cozy. We love our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review Rica. It was pleasure to have your group. I am sorry you had such a tough time with the television in the living room area. I thought the operations manual would help someone figure out how to operate the TV and cable box, but apparently it was not successful for you, so I will review it when I am next in Palm Springs and see what I can do to improve ease of operation. Again thank you so much for your glowing review. I look forward to welcoming you back when you next visit the Palm Springs area.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My parents, my brother, my husband, and my 5 month old daughter (along with our dog!), stayed here in June. Darryl was extremely thorough with communication and instructions, so we were prepared to make sure our appliances and AC did not fail. We used the pool every day to swim with our daughter (around 6am - it was her first time swimming and we wanted to keep her out of the sun) and it was very comfortable. It was really nice to be able to have the entire family together after years of owning at the Marriott Desert Villas. We would wake up and go right into the pool - you can't do that in a hotel! The neighborhood was extremely quiet. Minus some gardeners, we never heard a peep from anyone else. We were impressed on how clean everything was in the home and how well stocked the kitchen was. My husband cooked almost every meal, and we didn't need half of the things we brought along with us as they were already stocked! We were in a great location close to 111 and were able to visit all of our favorite spots while in town. We will absolutely look to stay here again on our next family trip to the desert. Darryl has thought of everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive feedback Kimberley. It was an extremely hot week during your visit (124F) and dispite that you and your family managed to get outside and enjoy the swimming pool. Perfect for cooling off on extremely hot days! I was thrilled to hear your husband found my kitchen fully equipped for meal preparation. I too am at home chef so it is important that EVERYTHING you might need is available when I use the house and when other use the house. One of the things I try to impress in potential renters is the fact they will need absolutely nothing. I have been at this vacation rental game for over 25 years with many properties in different parts of the world and I continue to get 5 stars from each and every client. it tells me I must be hitting the mark and I appreciate your comments. I was overjoyed to receive your praise that "I have thought of everything". I am pleased you found that to be the case. If something is missing for a client and they mention it, I ensure that for the next guest that item is available. Again, thank you for your kind words and I look forward to inviting you back next year.

A Private Resort

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a "Gem In The Desert", the house is immaculate, the pool area is beautiful, and location is a five minute drive right to Downtown Palm Springs. Staying here was like staying in your own private 5 Star resort. A wonderful experience through and through! If you stay here you will have the time of your life!

Perfect trip to Palm Springs and the desert area!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Palm Springs many times and have stayed at many different homes/hotels. This was a wonderful trip and the home is in a great location. It's close enough to downtown PS, hiking trails, shopping but also not too far from Palm Desert. It is located in a nice neighborhood. There are several reasons I enjoyed this stay. The home is larger than it looks on the website and has 2 well sized master suites. We prepared a couple of meals in the kitchen and it was very complete with up to date newer appliances, contemporary place settings and enough cookware to make a nice dinner or brunch for a group. The linens were also better quality than one would find in a vacation rental and there were plenty of towels, including pool towels, which were an added bonus! The pool and spa were very clean and worked well and we enjoyed the evening lights in the yard and the partial mountain view. I would highly recommend this vacation rental and appreciated all Darryl's assistance with renting this home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for your glowing review of WESTWIND at Escoba. I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed yourself with your family and friends dispite the challenges you encountered with the fireplace. It is so rewarding when a guest gives me 5 stars and writes such a positive review. I take great pride in offering my guests spotless comfort inside and a stunning pool/spa and garden area outside. I am pleased you noticed the high end linens and the fully equipped kitchen I provide for guests. I look forward to welcoming you back when you next visit Palm Springs.

Great vacation rental!

It is located within walking distance to stores, immaculately kept, has a well laid out floor plan with an awesome private backyard and pool. Our family of 5 stayed for 2 weeks and took advantage of the swimming pool morning, noon and night daily. We cooked in most days, relaxed and took driving day trips all over the area. Koffi is a great place for a Latte, and the restaurant Smokin Burgers did not disappoint. Palm Springs is HOT, so a place with a great pool is a must. Darryl really set this place up for a great escape with every detail imaginable taken care of!
