About Mike Workman

I own and manage this home my self. I do everything i can to give my guest a very comfortable stay and furnish them with everything they need. This home always gets very great reviews and my guest keep coming back and re booking. This is a custom home with 9 foot tall doors and 14 foot living room ceilings and 10 foot tall rooms. I purchased this home new, lived in it for 9 years before I decided to rent with vrbo.

I now live in the LA area although I own Patio Everything in the Palm Desert area so you can bet this home has very nice patio amenity's and very custom.

Mike Workman purchased this house in 2005

Beautiful spacious home with great pool and outdoor sitting area.

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples and had more than enough room. The house is well maintained and has all the amenities you will need. The outside sitting area with the tv and BBQ makes for a great place to relax. We enjoyed everything about the stay and will be looking for it again for next years stay.

Amazing property! Great for families or larger groups travelling together.

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this property with 6 adults and 2 toddlers and it was amazing. Large, clean and very well maintained. The owner was very accommodating as well. It was perfect for our family holiday. I would highly recommend this property and would not hesitate to come back.

Property very nice as advertised - cleaning deposit a problem

  • 4 of 5

I have used VRBO many times – most recently for a Kauai property. These rentals always worked out just fine.

For this Palm Desert, CA rental, all was OK, the property itself was very nice as advertised. However, the homeowner was not willing to refund our cleaning deposit. We left the place absolutely clean - as least as clean as we found it - stripped the beds etc. per his written instructions in the home. When we didn't receive the deposit, I called him. He stated that the cleaning deposit was not refundable, stating he had to pay for laundering the bedlinens, etc. After trying to explain to him what a "deposit" is, he finally agreed to the refund – but was still unhappy.

Days later the refund still didn’t happen. I called him again – and again he complained that he had to wash the sheets, etc. – but eventually again agreed to refund the deposit. I also then called HomeAway who sent an e-mail to the homeowner with instructions for making a refund. Your representative "Hazel" was most effective in this.

It took two phone calls to the homeowner and an email and phone call to HomeAway to get our refund – finally received Dec 15 - 17 days after our rental ended. The rental was from Nov 22 to Nov 28. The homeowner – apparently - still believes he was treated unfairly.

I recommend HomeAway make clear to their listing homeowners the difference between a cleaning "deposit" and a cleaning "fee" – at the time of listing activation.

Owner's Response: Hello Anonymous, We appreciate your review. We have never had a problem with the wording in the years this home has been a VRBO. It has always stipulated as most VRBO's a (CLEANING DEPOSIT) and has never been refundable or requested to be. Our cleaning crew will come in after the stay and thoroughly clean the home from top to bottom for the next guest. We never expect our guest to do any type of cleaning when leaving the residence. We apologize for any misunderstanding and always appreciate our customers comments as there is always room for improvement. The verbiage has since been corrected to read Cleaning Fee. Sincerely, Mike & Darlene

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the perfect spot for lots of R&R, shopping, tennis and pickleball. The house is in good condition and was a nice set up for 4 couples. The pool and hot tub were perfect and the large outdoor cooking and lounging was great. The only complaint is that there were tiny ants in 1 of the bathrooms and the shower head in another bathroom could be replaced or repaired. Overall we were very happy and would stay there again.

Comfortable home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Our family found this home very comfortable and conveniently located during our recent stay for the Desert Trip concert. It was clean and well equipped. The pool and outdoors entertainment area was enjoyed every afternoon.
