“Thanksgiving Holiday Group Trip”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2016

Very big, well appointed house in a really fantastic location. Esther and Kimberly made securing the house and arrival a breeze. Plenty of space and utensils in the kitchen, large dining and living areas, comfortable beds, and a wonderful patio.

We rented this house for a month. It is adorable and has so many places to sit and enjoy the warmth of Palm Springs. We had family visit through the month and everyone enjoyed it. The kids were in the pool all day. Great places to eat within just a few blocks. Excellent location to main drag of Palm Springs and Ruth Hardy Park. Our dog had lots of playmates there each afternoon. Casita is very nice for grandparents to have own space.

My friends and I rented this home for a 40th birthday weekend, and it was perfect. Beautiful yet comfortable main house, great guest cottage, and wonderful pool. It made for a very special weekend and an amazing dinner party for 4 couples. Kim, our rental agent, was also super helpful. I would recommend this to anyone.

We rented this place with 3 other couples. It is in a great location. We loved the yard,the pool and the privacy. It all worked out great except for one of the bedrooms was very small and the (double) bed was very uncomfortable. A new bed in that room is all this place needs to get my five stars. Otherwise someone, in a group of four couples, is going to be unhappy.

AMAZING house in a great location. We had a group of 10 for a 2 night stay and had plenty of room to spread out, relax and enjoy the accomodations. The pool and outdoor areas were comfortable and provided the perfect setting to enjoy our weekend. The house is in walking distance to shopping, restaruants and the lovely Ruth Hardy park. Perfect house in every way. Will definately go back!

Great space for a family gathering
859 Avenida Olivos, Palm Springs, CA, 92262, United States
Date of Stay November 22, 2012
The house itself was just what was promised -- lots of warm, comfortable and charming space for a large family to gather. The kitchen was well-equipped and there were books and games and pool toys. We spent most of our time outside in the patio, even at night. There were a couple of disappointments, however. We chose the space partly because we could see from the photos that there were large grassy expanses where small children could play. However, they had been reseeded three weeks before our arrival. Even though we were told to go ahead and use the space, no one was comfortable doing so. It would have been nice to know ahead of time and we might have selected another option had we known. Also, the children were looking forward to jumping in the pool the first thing, especially since they had come from cold climates and had only three days. But the pool was cold -- some misunderstanding about how the controls needed to be set. The response to our complaint however was very quick and someone came within hours, even though it was Thanksgiving Day, and by the next day the water was lovely. We enjoyed being walking distance from the downtown area and walked there for dinner one day. Overall a very good place to stay and we had a very good time.

We celebrated a family member's birthday at this beautiful home, and had 7 adults and 3 young children over a long weekend! It was extremely well-equipped, very tastefully decorated, and had plenty of room to either all be together...or not! Everything was immaculate, and the photos don't do it justice. It's obvious that the owner takes great pride in this property. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting a relaxing, quiet, and stress-free experience! However, if you want the "downtown" experience, it is within easy walking distance! We have stayed in a number of properties over the years, and this one was the absolute best...in every way!!
