"The Oscar Mayer House was perfect for our needs. We had seven people stay at the house and the layout gave everyone the privacy they may have needed as well as brought everyone together socially in the center of the house with the pool as a backdrop. The house was very comfortable and accommodating for everyone. I would highly recommend using Vacation Palm Springs for anyone who is more interested in having a property to themselves and not staying in a hotel. We will use Vacation Palm Springs again next year during the Palm Springs Film Festival as well as for those getaway weekends in between. Fortunately we didn?t need to contact anyone during our stay, however prior to our arrival the staff was very professional, polite and accommodating, which was very much appreciated."
"The rental accommodation was spacious, comfortable and well located in a quiet neighborhood with a great mountain view and golf course backdrop. The open living area design provided for a very relaxing atmosphere after a hard day on the course. The beds were extremely comfortable which made getting up at 5:30am all the more difficult! The kitchen included all the gadgets required for meal preparations and the outdoor grill complimented the experience. Although "high speed wireless internet" service was advertised, no such access was available. The lack of a modem was definitely the source of the wireless problem and the DSL router apparently had no internet service link - this was a major pain and presented an ongoing inconvenience with online golf booking and daily work related issues both of which were remedied utilizing the services of a local wireless internet cafe. A few other minor issues included insufficient hot water in the master bath shower, a stuck float valve in the toilet located in the two bedroom bathroom and a broken bathroom fan."
"We loved the look and the away from town location (but not too far away)- location drawback was nothing much to walk to as shopping center is pretty empty but I did walk westside into lovely neighborhoods. We had a brief hiccup with the TV/Cable but rebooted and all was well. Loved the showers! We had very friendly interactions (with rental agents) very helpful... We felt we could call for their assistance anytime and have a friendly voice - luckily nothing needed attention (except TV). We don't have any complaints or suggestions - that tells you a lot!!"
"5 Palm Springs Holiday Villa - Amazing We had the best Palm Springs Vacation, this is a house that we will always rent when we go back. The house had eveything we needed. Palm Springs Holiday Villa was great and very roomy we had the best palm springs vacation ever and this is the house we will be renting over and over again. Everything was great, the only suggestion we have is the yard needs a little more lighting at nights, other then that everything was great."
"Excellent home! Excellent Service! The layout was great for our large party. 9 beds was perfect. The house was in great shape. Spend more time....we did not have enough time to totally enjoy the house! The Service Team was on the ball. Nate and Justin were on the ball. They did a great job! The only thing the house did not have was a community bathroom. One had to go into a bedroom to use the bathroom. Besides this, the house was perfect. Great neighborhood, privacy."
"We spent one month at Tres Palmas; even had our Irish terrier with us. We especially enjoyed the design of the property (home and grounds), with the beautiful and large pool, doggie friendly areas, hot tub, fantastically equipped kitchen and comfortable bed and common areas. The location is in a neighborhood with some families, as well other mid-century classic homes - some with gorgeous grounds, and others in need of repair. Nevertheless, a good place to walk with the dog. This is a great property for enjoying life together with loved ones. A beautiful place to soak up sun, play croquet, swim, hot tub, watch videos in the evening and cook. We enjoyed driving to locations for hiking, shopping and city walks in Palm Springs (cafes, bars, galleries)."
"We had an amazing time in this rental home. It was clean, well stocked, and felt just like home. We loved the warm pool and spa. We used it almost every evening. Service was great! Only suggestions: More toilet paper in all bathrooms and directions on how to get the BBQ lit would be helpful."
"I took my family of four on a surprise trip to Palm Springs. Travelling with a 3 year old and a 4 month old, this trip was PERFECT. We all enjoyed the huge entertainment space outside and amenities inside. The modern home had everything that we needed to have lots of fun! All staff were great. Thank you all for being so helpful. The stereo is terrific and would be better if it had an updated iPod adapter (current one didn't work). The sinks in the bathroom are interesting, but not so functional. We will definitely stay here again!"
"Thanks to the owners for sharing this personal gem. The entire acre of property was beautifully maintained. Each flower, grass, fruit tree was pruned perfectly. The grounds were a joy to everyone in our party. The layout, beds, fireplaces and overall usability was excellent. Great for a family get together. Plenty of privacy for anyone looking for peace and quiet. Location A+. Thanks. Everyone at Vacation Palm Springs was very responsive and helpful. Some appliances need repair (Refridgerator is warm, one oven is not working, coffemaker was broken, but repaired during our stay... pool cover required maintenance during out visit... carpets need cleaning. Nothing prevented us from enjoying this beautiful home."
"Our experience was very good. Basically match description. Jacuzzi was smaller than pictures seemed. Portia did a GREAT job. More explanation from the maintenance guy would have been very useful. Better hot tub instructions needed...photos showing valves and the consequences of each position would be good. The instructions, what the maintenance man did and the position left by the pool man were all different."
"The house was great for our group. Layout worked well for children who go to bed earlier, naps for some, privacy all around. Once the minor things are taken care of the house was great. Needed pool towels, pool towels, more blankets, large pasta pot."
"The condo was very comfortable & close to most of the activities we enjoy when visiting Palm Springs. The beds were firm & supportive. It was located in a very quiet neighborhood. All the windows & skylights were great. I would highly recommend it. I would highly recommend renting a condo like this one close to the wonderful downtown area of Palm Springs. Take advantage of all the great hiking trails & natural beauty of this area. Also, the golf & tennis facilities are tremendous. Our interactions with the staff were very positive. They were quite helpful. Suggest a new dishwasher. It did not work very well. It is the only reason I did not rate this condo a "5 star". (note from the homeowner: Issue with the dishwasher has been resolved.)"
"The home was beautiful. The landscaping was less than desirable. We had problems with the pool and Jacuzzi heat for two days and the wireless internet never worked. Nice home with a lot of space. Great kitchen for entertaining and dining. We enjoyed several clubs and the Spa at the Rivera Hotel. The pre trip information was good and detailed. Once we got there the pool heat and wireless internet were not working. The time delay in getting the pool heat fixed was really not expectable and to not have the wireless internet the entire stay that was advertized was rather disappointing also. Make sure all of the equipment is working properly and if it is not, have prompt service to take care of the problem. I would also add a gas grill to the home as we never bbq and that is something we really enjoy doing."
"We had a fabulous time - the home had everything necessary for a well rounded vacation. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, pots/pans, electronics...all the comforts of home. The ping pong table was an added bonus. The owners clearly know how to enjoy Palm Springs and have successfully passed all the crucial elements along to their guests. I would strongly recommend staying in a private home over a hotel -- the elements your homes provide are far superior to room service. Everyone is very pleasant. I have stayed at many of your properties and the only observation I can make in terms of improvement is, if a guest has left something behind, (and it happens), the staff could be more helpful in aiding the guest in retrieving the item. Fully recognizing that personal belongings are the guests responsibility, it would set your company apart if post-departure service was just as attentive as it is during the stay."
"It was a fantastic home for our needs! The pool and spa were heated delightfully. The pictures shown of the home depicted it very well...and the sinks are pretty weird...but it's good to try weird things. The lack of privacy due to the botanical gardens was a bit of a drag, but it was minimal and not during the evening, of course. A super vacation overall. Suggestions: Privatize the backyard, fluffier bath towels, more storage in the kitchen(the washer and dryer did not work...wasted space)"
"Beautiful house in a nice quite neighbourhood. The pool is lovely and the view of the mountians breathtaking. The house is nicely appointed with great bathrooms and really nice master suite. Great place to stay - but bring all the things you see that are missing from the list! Service was all good - and quick prompt response to our bedding issue."
"Layout very nice. Very clean and overall process very good. Rental agency's staff was all very courteous and responsive. Suggested items: 1. Maybe instructions on how to operate the Television/satalite system. 2. Two keys instead of one. 3. Information on dealing with trash (What days or where to place.) 4. "Cassita" was cold and no apparent way to increase temperature. 5. Continous noise at night in kids bedroom. May be from hotwater heater. 6. Directions to grocery stores would be nice."
"The home was everything the photos hinted at very well stocked and well taken care of. We recommend buying the pool heating option - is a must. We had excellent service from the team. I do wish to know if the cleaning crew found my bathing suit. I will pay to have it mailed to me. Would suggest adding really good instructions on the use of the tv system."
