Manager questionable/Owner wonderful

  • 3 of 5

1. Directions never given and it's hard to find. Even neighbors were not sure. When I asked I was told that GPS doesn't work.

2.When we arrived late (since we couldn't find the place) we set the alarm off by opening the door to the garage. The manager came and said we set it off by bumping into it. False. We were short sheets so he said he would bring them the next day so (not good.)

3. The televisions didn't work so he sent someone the next day who had to get a new cable box.

4. Hot tub & pool never worked properly til the last day we were there when a pool company came. He kept saying that it was recycling and would correct itself. Not!

5.The garage stunk of beer cans, garbage and recyclables so we never used it.

Great Views but Some Attention to Details Required

  • 3 of 5

We live in the area and were in need of a large house for extended family to stay at in order to attend a funeral on short notice. Unfortunately, contrary to previous reviews, we did have trouble getting in touch with the property manager and a response to our repeated phone calls was only obtained by contacting the owner.

Upon arriving at the house, we were impressed with its spacious quarters and stellar views. However, the common areas upstairs are small and tight for a house of this magnitude. The kitchen is tiny and cramped with minimal prep space and is greatly in need of an update and maintenance. The interior of the cabinets were dirty and cleaning supplies were limited (no sponges, rags, or disinfectant; 2 dirty brooms yet no dust pan?!?) The main staircase is quite narrow and steep. Elderly relatives had to be escorted up and down due to its uneven rock-like steps and lack of handrails.

Overall, the house served its purpose and the stellar views lessened but did not obscure the home's obvious flaws.

Great 365 Views in Spacious and Calming House

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here this weekend and had a great time! The views are wonderful. The spacious rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were amazing. We didn't even leave the house! This house was perfect for getting together, cooking some meals and relaxing. We especially loved eating out on the back deck at the long table. The kitchen was properly stocked though I do recommend bringing tupperware or aluminum foil if you plan on having leftovers! I would 100% stay here again if I ever needed to house that many people.

Thanks so much for a great stay!

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family reunion, and it was everything we were looking for. The home was nicely appointed and very quiet and private, and we enjoyed the amazing views, especially at night while sitting in the spa. Everything worked well, and the kitchen was well stocked. Very nice, and we'd definitely rent again if in the area - highly recommended. Tim, the property manager, was very helpful with the orientation. The location was close to Joshua Tree and Pioneertown, which we visited on alternate days.
