Home and furnishings are similar to those found in a five star resort. Everything appeared to be new, and it was spotless. Kitchen was well equipped, with all the gadgets needed for nearly any meal. Even little things like storage bags were provided. I arrived very late, so it was nice that starter toiletries were provided as well. The outdoor spaces really set this place apart, there is a nice, protected courtyard and a beautiful covered patio with a large propane grill. The desert landscaping in the backyard is fantastic.
