We spent 3+ days at this amazing house with our Family. Wendy was a great host, we are super happy we decided to stay in her home. The house is very private and the location is honestly the best in town. All you need to bring is your swim shorts and let the vacation begin!! Outdoor space and indoor area feels very luxurious, you will not be disappointed...

Wendy, Thank you again!!

A perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just as the other reviewers have stated, this property exceeds expectations! Wendy was a great hostess. We had a couple of questions that came up and I've never had such a quick response time - she always answered me within minutes! Also, there was an earthquake in Palm Springs the night before we came and Wendy spent the entire day at the house repairing things so she would not have to cancel on us at the last minute. We were so grateful because some of the guests flew in from New York and San Francisco to be there for the weekend and we had no backup plan! The house is very well-appointed. Lots of towels for the beautiful pool and house, a nice washer and dryer (which is not always the case with home rentals), great media hookups - from the Sonos sound systems to the flat screen tv's in the kitchen and bedrooms, and too many other thoughtful touches to mention here. The beds are as soft and cozy as everyone has said in past reviews! The master bedroom is a very open and shared space, so make sure whomever you plan to share it with is someone you know pretty well. The bathroom in the master is also very open to the bedroom, so you'll have minimal privacy in that space. We were a group of girlfriends so it was fun for us to all be together getting ready and it would truly be ideal for a family. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was well-stocked. The only things we could have used more of were measuring cups and spoons, but otherwise she did a great job of providing platters, dishes, and various spices and cooking staples like olive oil and flour, etc... Every single person in our group said they would want to stay in the same house on their next trip to Palm Springs! Thanks for going the extra mile and not cancelling on us, Wendy!!!

Wendy was a fantastic host! The property is beautiful and she even offered to go to the store and buy us supplies when our flight was delayed. We will be back!

Perfect PalmSprings Getaway, pics don't do justice

  • 5 of 5

This house couldn't have been more perfect for my girls' weekend and Wendy couldn't have been a more gracious host. Wendy's home keeps impressing with every new amenity you discover. The home itself is GORGEOUS -- fastidiously designed and kept, it smells and feels like a spa. The pool is warm and the outdoor dining table is luxurious. The kitchen is FULLY STOCKED which, as a professional chef, was a welcome and pleasant surprise. I booked Villa Palma because it was a perfect size for my part, a very reasonable price, and the back yard looked great -- but these pictures don't do the home as a whole justice! Villa Palma comes stocked with all the modern conveniences you need -- direct TV, sonos sound system, speak for the backyard, brand new kitchen, etc etc etc -- and if you have trouble figuring anything out, Wendy makes herself available via phone/text to help you figure it out. Villa Palma is located conveniently near downtown PS and the airport. We plan on returning for a reunion trip!
