Thanksgiving Fun at Xanadu

  • 5 of 5

We came to Palm Springs for a Thanksgiving family reunion and stayed at the Xanadu property. The owners thought of everything that would make our visit comfortable, including adding a turkey roaster to the kitchen. The home is very spacious and wonderfully decorated. With 9 adults we were more than comfortable without being at all crowded. The resort like backyard had a nice view of the mountains, and we awoke to snow on the peaks our last day. We would definitely stay again at this property.

Xanadu was Heaven!! I just returned from 4 days in the desert and it was everything I was hoping for and MORE! The kitchen is equipped with everything I needed and I woke each morning to freshly ground and brewed coffee, enjoyed poolside. My goal for the visit was quite simply to ESCAPE the madness of NYC and truly unwind. The bed was perfect; not-too-hard-not-too-soft, with high quality cotton bedding. The en-suite bathroom was immaculate and modern. I lost count of all of the shower heads in the master but there were at least 6 or 7- best shower ever!

I only left the house to go out for meals; Palm Springs has great dining options and each restaurant I tried was better than the last.

Emily and Lewis called to check in a few times and make sure I was comfortable... they were lovely and gracious hosts.

Bonus feature!! The front yard has an olive tree!! I decided to try my hand at curing olives...they take time but I was inspired to learn and try it out.

The only thing missing on the trip was my children!! After visiting I realized how much they also would have loved it.

Highly recommend... I know I will be back!
