"The property was very well decorated and we found that to be really fun. We loved the gigantic hedges in the back yard for privacy and overall neatness. The pool was well maintained and the house overall was very clean and comfortable. The house itself was fine, the kitchen needs some updating and restocking of some better kitchen wear. The paint and outside furniture was pretty beat up and that was a bummer. The reservation team is always really nice to work with, so thanks."
"A super-chic gem with an even more inviting backyard pool area. An oasis on a busy street. Came here with friends and spent an amazing weekend. Stylish cover from the hot sun and close to all the desert has to offer. What more can you ask for? Everything was great. It had everything we needed. The kitchen, bed's and bathrooms felt very clean. I did feel however it was a bit messy. The pool had more then just a few days of leaves, more like a few weeks. We had to hose down most of the backyard furniture, every seat and outdoor table was visibly covered in dirt. I think the walls, doors and door jams needed a good "magic eraser" scrubbing. They seemed sticky from use. Other then that it was a lovely experience."
"great location, nice clean comfy house with pool and hot tub, great compact kitchen, fault-less wifi connection. quiet neighborhood. and no bugs! excellent service. Nate was great with helping book the house. Portia was very kind when trying to help in extending the stay (the house was already booked for a new renter's arrival) and was very understanding in giving us a little extra time to clear out of the house :)"
"The property was very clean and orderly. But most importantly: the mid-century modern aesthetic was exactly what we were looking for. The beds were warm and comfortable and the house had every single amenity we wanted and needed. The chaise lounges were on their last legs. One of them even broke under our friend (which Tim replaced!) The old one that remains should be replaced too. Dealt with Cesar before -- he was great. Tim after and we LOVED Tim. :) He is the sweetest and VERY accommodating. You should promote him."
"The house had everything we needed and was very conveniently located. The pool was beautiful and it was great to have a pool table. We had a great weekend. It had everything we needed at a reasonable price. Nate was very helpful with the reservations and Portia was very helpful when we needed to change the house at the last minute."

"Backyard and pool were great. Plenty of seating and space for everyone. Suggest screen doors on sliding glass doors so they can stay open during the day w/o letting flies in. We would also be able to turn the AC off during the day if we could keep the doors and windows open. Very helpful company to work with."
"Great property. Liked how the pool was gated off from the back yard. It was a great property Before our arrival - I had to remind the team to forward me a confirmation and also how to access the property. While we were there - we had problem with coffee maker. Team replaced same day we reported it broken."
"House was very nice and had all the amenities we required. Beautiful back yard. A screen should be put on the patio door in the murphy bed room. An instruction booklet on how to work all the electronics would be helpful. Everyone I had contact with was very helpful. Very helpful company to work with."
"4th time at the property. we love it. close to downtown. great for thursday night walk. very nice pool and jacuzzi renovation only complaint from some of our clan: the dishwasher is getting a little long in tooth. still working, but on its last legs. the reservation team had everything lined up for us 2weeks before our arrival. highly recomeended."
"Location was excellent, very close to property pool, clean and great layout of condo. 2 couples can easily stay there with lots of privacy,so much room. Very quiet community at night and safe to go running around community in early am maybe a second entry key would have been helpful. reservation team was excellent. all my emails were responded too exceptionally quickly and all info re property was clear and consise. We didn't need anything once we arrived but i am sure if we did it would have been immediately taken care of."
"This is a lovely home. We liked the location more than we thought we would. It is ideal for access to hiking trails and the town of Palm Springs. The home is lacking amenities such as table clothes, napkins, etc.That said we would most likely rent this home again.We really enjoyed working with VPS team. They were quick to respond to our questions and we will look forward to working with them in the future. Thanks Portia & Rick"

"I found this property very peaceful, a quiet elegance that was also homey and felt very safe and very appealing to all of my senses. I would like to see an easier(or clearer) display for hot tub use. We had to mess with it often and found that we were not sure when it was on or not. The trash can in the kitchen is minute. I loved that the knives were sharp!!! this is exceptional for a rental home!I liked the noise ordinace restrictions. Everyone at the rental agency was just great and very quick to respond"
"From the moment we walked in, we loved it. Very spacious ranch, mid-century but with the flair of modern amenities. The decor is spot on. Layout easily works for two small families or several couples with two bedrooms on one side of house and two on another. The 2 masters are spacious. We especially loved the outdoor shower (everyone tried it); the outdoor living room and fireplace. Our teens loved the home theater. Pool area perfect. It would have been nice if there was a gaming system set up. There are no games or movies. An additional pool float would be nice. (But these requests are minor) Love the coffee table books and ipod sound system though. We dealt with Justin and Nate to make the reservation. They couldn't be more helpful. The welcome basket is a very nice touch (I used my coffee mug this morning in fact)! However, we did have pool issues that hampered our using it (first the spa wouldn't heat, then the pool became an algea pond) and that was not resolved so well even though we were told someone would return that day, they never did. The pool and spa concerns have been repaired - Scott in Property Management Already have recommended you. We have done VRBO in the past and have been happy, but this is different because you knowwhere are managers available to respond. When an issue came up, they called back immediately."
"We come to Palm Springs from the San Francisco area twice a year and rent a house each time, so we have rented a lot of PS homes over the last 10+ years. This house is comfortbale and clean. The linen closet is well stocked wiht lots of new towels - an especially big plus with kids. The kitchen is new and had most of the equipment and tools we needed to prepare some nice meals at home. The house is directly acrosss the street from a middle school and on a larger street, but we had no probelm with noise from either the school or traffic. The hosue is close to two shopping malls, wiht fast food, supermarkets, and banks. It is about a 7 minute drive from the PS airport. We have rented many times through Vacation Palm Springs and always been well taken care of."

"The yard/landscaping is beautiful, nice and private. The house was comfortable. We were never able to get the pool and spa temperature regulated. Heating the spa, made the pool too hot. Tried to follow the instructions given, but there didn't seem to be a way to get the spa warm and the pool cool. Very frustrating. Also, we were 6 adults and there were only 5 lounge chairs, would have liked to have had 6 minimum....additional outdoor furniture would have been nice for the price we paid. Inside, we were surprised there was no shampoo supplied and one tiny bar of soap. We ran out of toilet paper and had to make a special trip to the store to buy some, so better basic provisions would have been appreciated. A few extra pool towels would have been good too. I dealt with both Justin and Sergio, and both were great. I would however recommend Vacation Palm Springs."

"We have just spent two months enjoying the Oscar Mayer house. Emphasis on the word 'enjoy'. This is the real Palm Springs we've been looking for but haven't found until now. We'll be back for longer next year! This mid twentieth century home has been largely updated to the best of this century. In fact, it looks like an ad for Andersen Doors and Windows. Here's some of what's great about this house: it's roomy feeling, it's design which allows for plenty of sun and shade around the pool, it's location and fine neighbors, it's quiet and convenient location and that wall of glass windows and doors that look out on the pool from the living space. What a perfect place to have a dinner party, either indoors or outside using the astounding grill. A word about this as a party house. If you want to stay up late and turn up the boom box do yourself a favor and rent someplace else. This is a real neighborhood with year round working neighbors who don't and shouldn't tolerate that. If you want to relax this is your place. I guess no house is absolutely perfect, so here are some thoughts on how OM could be even better (which I suspect the home owners know about and are steadily working on). The electrical system is outdated. The home owners have made a most helpful illustrated book that will tell you what you need to know about that. Except for the microwave which can't be used at the same time as the toaster or coffee maker. But the circuit breaker isn't far away. The showers should have mats and grab bars for safety, and some instructions for heating the pool would be a good idea. Since there are four TV sets it would be nice if the Direct TV had access to LA stations and maybe HBO. It's mostly infomercials, the local Palm Springs stations and a clunky assortment of other junk, trash and blather. While there's a huge number of beach towels, there's a shortage of hand towels and face cloths. I think we had contact with everybody at Vacation Palm Springs. Portia helped us find Oscar Mayer house last year and endless thanks to her for that. All the guys 'in the field' the property managers as they are called responded to every call as if they were just around the corner. Thanks guys. And big thanks to the homeowners who gave the okay for the phones and the chest of drawers in the king bedroom and who agreed to our return in 2012."
"It was large enough that we were not on top of each other,(14 of us ranging from 6 to 78 years old) but connected enough that we could all be together for meals and fun times I think the property should be checked often by the manager as some of the perimeter lights were working at night and it was needed coming in the dark Scott and Justin were great there were some things that needed fixing and referred us to Nate, and everthing was fixed with a warm smile by David"
