"Girls Getaway The house was amazing and the pool was absolutely incredible! "
"Gorgeous! We have used Vacation Palm Springs for years. We use them two or three times a year for different events, and they are always kind and helpful. We haven't had a complaint at all. "
"house is extremely dated...only one umbrella actually worked out side...air conditioner does not cool all the rooms..pool filter needs to run on a regular schedule to keep an 80 foot pool semi clean...huge problem with bugs entering the kitchen window "
"Accommodating The space was wonderfully accommodating for a large group. The VPS folks were also incredibly easy to work with. The wonderful pool and spacious common areas. Lots of private bedrooms and bathrooms were also great for a large group. "
"Great house and pool for our family of 14 including our 6 young granddaughters. "
"Good location nice accommodations for a large group. "
"Big House, big pool and enjoyable time had by party of 8 adults. Vacation Palm Springs very responsive to a couple of small issues - it is a quality company. House does not give all of its secrets easily because it is so large - switches, plugs, etc. but it all worked out. Kitchen is small. "
"The house was great! Plenty of room and the common areas accommodated large groups very well. We found everything we needed for a very enjoyable long Chrismas weekend. We never left the property because the was plenty to keep us entertained here between the pool, spa, tennis court, large common areas and games and puzzles we brought we were very entertained. "
"We had a large group of 14 adults and the home was perfect, we had lots of space, the pool area was absolutely fabulous! Everyone we dealt with at Vacation Palm Springs was fabulous. The original reservation was with Roxy who answered all questions and the reservation booking went very smoothly, we had a couple of minor issues at the house, and manager arrived promptly and was extremely helpful, we could not have asked for better service!! I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Vacation Palm Springs to anyone. We had a wonderful vacation in a beautiful private home. Our group had a terrific time we all agreed we would love to plan another vacation again soon!! "
"The guests and I loved the space and seclusion. The pool and the backyard was large enough to accommodate all of our needs. We were able to beat the summer heat with lots of inside and outside activities. "
"The house was HUGE and fit so many people with space to share. Nate was so helpful and easy to work with. The process was flawless. "
"We had a great time at The Villa Grand. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all spacious and the pool was perfect for large groups. "
"We loved the pool "
"The Villa Grand property was not only beautiful, but incredibly spacious and well kept. It had everything we needed! "
"We absolutely loved this house. We had a big group and the house was more than accommodating. It had a kind of rambling layout which gave everyone privacy, and the pool was unreal. It is massive. We had to account for pool travel time (paddling from one end to the other) in our plans. The house really felt like an oasis since it doesn't have any immediate neighbors and most of the doors open out onto the pool area. Also-- there are plenty of lounge chairs! Between the pool, tennis court, and playing games inside, we never needed to leave. You guys were great! "
"Love the pool and the fact the almost every room has a restroom. Everyone enjoyed their stay. One of the nicest pools I've seen. "
"The home has everything you need to enjoy on a summer weekend with friends! "
"Wonderful home for our annual family get together. There was lots of space and room for everyone. The outside yard is spectacular! We especially enjoyed the sport court. House had all the amenities plus more! Everyone had a wonderful time! Great service, as usual, from Vacation Palm Springs! "
"Our Chicago based group consisted of 12 youth soccer players (boys, ages 10-11) and 5 supervising adults, using Villa Grand to serve as team headquarters as we participated in a week long tournament in Riverside. Despite some preconceived reservations, the home turned out to be the perfect place for our group. There was ample space to house all of our guests, a well stocked kitchen with all the necessary gadgets to prepare team meals, a new washer/dryer to handle two daily washings of uniform, and a private pool where the kids could play and not worry too much about disturbing neighbors. The bedrooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. We were concerned the interior and the furnishings might not be durable enough for 12 boys, but the home, its fixtures and furnishings were remarkably durable. The home is extremely private and backs up to a vacant property, so the boys could enjoy the pool and mini-tennis court without fear of making too much noise. Breakfasts were prepared in the kitchen and eaten at the huge dining room table, while lunches and dinners were taken out on the patio. The gas grill received daily use and pass-through window from the kitchen to the patio made meal preparation and service ideal. All in all, the longer we stayed in the home, the more we realized how perfect it was for our group. Bunnie was prompt with all of the communication leading up to and following the reservation process. The transaction was handled professionally and without issues. The property management group was extremely quick to respond to two very minor issues we noted when we arrived. "
"The whole family got to stay in one place. We loved the outdoor space and tiki bar room for spending time together and how everyone had their own space for privacy. Like our own minim resort. Justin was very helpful in giving me all the information I needed and helped with making the reservations. "
"Excellent pool and amenities to pass the time. This worked perfect with our family to have places for everyone to hang out together and spread out to do their own thing. "
"The house had a very nice layout. Pool area was fantastic! The house is very nice, very relaxing environment, but could use updating. "
"Property was in an ideal location. Very central to everything. Well equiped. Team was responsive when contacted and service was good. We would recommend Vacation Palm Springs and this house 100%. It is a fantastic option for Work Retreats or large group (family) outings. "
"We needed a lot of bedrooms and got them here. Loved the Tiki bar and the pool was great too. A few maintenance problems but they didn't detract from our ability to enjoy our time. Everyone we talked to was quite helpful and very eager to please "
"We loved that it had lots of bedrooms and the outdoor eating area was great. "
"Grandparents and four families shared a week in this large 70's retro home. Mirrored walls and ceiling in a bathroom, indoor tiki bar, are among many funky features that tell this home's history. But it doesn't feel outdated or worn down. With several toddlers, the shallow end of the pool was wonderful. The older kids enjoyed the deep end. The home was comfortable with lots of living room space and a huge dining table. Although the appliances and granite counters were beautiful, the kitchen was small for the size group we had. But we made it work (we used the wonderful outdoor grill lots!). Overall, we would definitely return. The team was INCREDIBLE. Our whole group agreed that the service from your team was a huge benefit. We would never rent a home from any other company in Palm Springs. "
"Lots of room for every one and the service was great! "
"We had a large group so it was nice for everyone to have their own room and bathroom. Plenty of parking, the pool was wonderful for our large group. Lots of seating inside and out. "
"The house was clean with room for everyone to spread out. Great pool! Justin was awesome. Eric and Jerry were great. "
"The size of the house is great for a large group. Each person having his or her own bathroom and bedroom was very nice. Also, the house is a short drive to downtown. The house is a little dated. "
"the house worked out great. It had all the amenities we needed. Lots of chairs for the outside area and the pool with the shallow end for the small children worked out perfectly. The reservation team was wonderful to work with. We worked with Portia mainly and she was really professional. also, when we called with questions or an issue on the house you were very responsive. "
"The property was really nice, everything was very neat and clean. Some minor things like shower heads and window coverings could be updated. We had a wonderful time! Sergio was really helpfull , thank you for being patient with me by calling to many times :-) "
"It was a great home and acommodated all our needs and the location was excellent we were happy with everytrhing all the staff was very helpful "
"Great space for entertaining a big group. Great pool. Fun bedrooms and layout. Tiki bar is awesome! No neighbors is a huge plus. Everyone at Vacation Palm Springs was prompt, attentive, and professional. "
"The pool was amazing. Number of bedrooms and bathrooms worked well for the large group. For such a large house another fridge would be helpful (maybe in the garage). Better lighting in the bedrooms would be nice too. Excellent service from Vacation Palm Springs... answered all our questions promptly. "
"We had a great time at this property. The pool area is amazing, the sport court is in good shape, the bedroom/bathroom configuration is smart and there are virtually no neighbors to disturb. That said, if the bed/bath situation wasn't as great as it is--everyone gets their own, which is hard to find--I probably would have given the house only 3 stars. The history is cool and you can feel that there must have been a time this place really shined, but in the years since it can be simply described as "worn around the edges". We got the impression that this is the home of someone who is probably never there, so they haven't lived with all the little things that don't quite work or are a little funky. As long as you come in with this expectation, rather than expecting to be dazzled, you'll be in the right space. The neighborhood fits the house. Once a place for the posh to play, now an area with nice homes mixed in with tired or empty properties. And there is plenty of wind (which is a signature of the north end of town). Make sure you keep your cars in the garage. If we come back with a group this size, we will definitely consider it again. I could not have been more impressed with the Vacation Palm Springs team. Justin was responsible for the reservation and helped with all sorts of details before we arrived. He was on the ball with everything and sweet as a kitten. We only had one small issue with a sink that wouldn't drain, and Josh had someone out in a time that worked for us as quickly as we could have asked. Every person we ever spoke to there was professional, courteous and responsive. I work in real estate and I can assure you that this company performs at a level far beyond the service most property management companies provide. I will call them first the next time we head to the desert. "
"This property was incredible! It had a great vintage 1970s, ample bedrooms and bathrooms, amazing pool, and special touches like jacuzzi, sauna and tennis court. It was private and secluded with no neighbors on two sides. 15 people stay here very comfortably.. We did not want to leave! "
"The Villa Grande was exactly that. Grand. The pool was amazing and a hit with the whole family. The rooms were all well appointed. The was no lack of sitting space. The sport court is small but great fun to use. The neighbor even threw the balls back that we couldnt get. The house was a hit with our family. You really need a new kitchen sink faucet. Even after repair it comes off in your hand. That was the only annoyance and it was miniscule compared with the enjoyment we had. Sergio & Portia did an excellent job of communicating and making sure our needs were met. When on the property, Nate took our phone calls and repairs were made quickly. My calls were met with enthusiasm and handled professionally. Customer service was excellent. "
"Great vacation home. To improve the home, I would recommend installing hooks on the bathroom doors. The heater on one side of the home wasn't working - the sitting room and bedrooms were very very cold. The Vacation Palm Springs team was excellent. "
"We rented the home so that our entire family could stay in one place, all our kids and grand kids. Everyone had a great time even though it was a bit cramped fitting in the numbers in the two back bedrooms near the bar. The bathrooms are a bit old fashioned with very little counter space in most of them. The main bath faucet does not work so showering was a must. It was a pity that with a four car garage, there was only one remote provided. However, everyone had a good time and we basically enjoyed the property. Before arrival I dealt with Portia and Nate and they were very helpful. During the stay we had a lot of contact with Scott and Eric and Nathan and were impressed with their constant attention to our needs. "
"We liked the layout of the home, kitchen was well stocked, lots of towels. Pool was nice. Loved the tiki bar. Everyone on the Vacation Palm Springs team was great. "
"It had everything we needed for our family reunion. The entire reservation team was great, all outstanding service! All the property managers were excellent as well! After the big storm we experienced, your team responded with people to clean up the mess, including cleaning the pool. "
"The rooms were very comfortable, and the outdoor amenities were terrific - especially the pool! Not all ovens were working properly, and the master bath shower knob needs fixing.(Thank you for your valuable comments; maintenance has been sent to the house to resolve these concerns -The Property Management Team) We were very pleased with the quick response when we needed to restart one of the hot water heaters. Would we recommend? Yes - with very high accolades. "
"The Villa Grand is a terrific venue for a relaxing weekend with a large group of friends. It's kind of nice the property backs up to an undeveloped lot because it makes it so quiet and peaceful. The patio and ample outdoor seating made it so that we only went inside to sleep and cook. The house doesn't photograph that well because every room was larger and more impressive than it looked on the website. And the Tiki bar is huge! Everything went great. We only had to call the office once, and that was to ask how to turn on the pool fountain. "
"We liked everything. The heat in one bedroom next to master was not functioning. We would recommend discarding all artificial flower arrangements. The bathroom - toilet hangars need repair. (Thank you for the excellent feedback. We have repaired the heater and toilet paper hangers. -Britt in property management) "
"Great place for a large family gathering or multiple couples. Plenty of everything--glasses, dishes etc. Top of the line appliances in the kitchens. Nice coordination of the rental agency "team" to take care of all concerns. "
"The property has a wonderful flow. Each room had its own distinct flair with very nice extra appointments. The wall coverings and pictures and hangings were perfect as well at the tile through out. A wonderful relaxed feeling. The outside was superior and so very comfortable. The property was clean and neat and the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Every guest of mine had positive comments and are waiting for me to have another function there - Thank you Very professional company staffed with a nice personality - no problems and pleasant. "
"The property manager was responsive to our requests and the house was beautiful. "
"The house was a perfect fit for our large group and young kids (all under age of 5). Everything was equipped for ease and convenience including the kitchen double dishwashers, large washing machine and dryer, stereo system, tons of outside seating, plenty of towels and very large dining room table. We had to call because the alarm was beeping and they were able to easily solve the problem over the phone. "
"My friends and I stayed at the VG over the summer and had a fantastic experience. The privacy afforded by its location is impeccable. The kitchens/tiki bar were fantastic. The pool refreshing in the hot summer months. The sauna inside was nice as well. Sergio in reservations did a great job and would like to work with him again, for a possible Palm Springs trip in March 2012. "
"Pool was great. House, especially the kitchen, had everything we needed including pool and bath towels. Plenty of seating inside and out and plenty of parking. Kitchen had everything we needed; however, that left very little room to store the food products we brought in. Consideration could be given to replacing the mattresses in the court side bedrooms.Room darkening shades in 2 bedrooms off the sports court plus the bedroom off the patio would be helpful. Additional light needed in dining room. Note from property management team: Thank you for the excellent suggestions and feedback. We will work with the property owners to implement your thoughtful suggestions and make the improvements you mentioned. I did everything online. Did not contact nor talk to a team member. I did meet Judy, the gardener, who was accomodating (we had a slight plumbing problem) that was resolved. "
"The Tiki bar, outdoor seating and pool area are fantastic. Lot's of great gathering spots for a large group. The lighting in the house could be improved and having a few basics in the garage like a cooler! Portia was excellent during the process. This is the fourth year in a row we have used this company Vacation Palm Springs and it's very good. "
"The house, pool and location was perfect for our large family gathering. The house layout for the 7 bedrooms and bathrooms allowed complete privacy for all family members. The central location of the kitchen & dining areas near the pool allowed for easy food preparation, family meals and conversation. Clearly our experience at the "Villa" provided our family with memories that will last for many years. Only suggestion would be to sharpen all of kitchen knives! The house has plenty of knives, however, they are very dull. We did a lot of food preparation and it was difficult to cut the food properly. Excellent support from all members of the reservation team and property managers. When the garage door would not operate, a maintenance person arrived right away and fixed it. Great experience, so much better than staying at a hotel. Everyone could relax and participate in family activities. "
"3 generations of family (12 adults + little ones) stayed in this home for 5 days and had plenty of room-especially outdoors. The sports court was fun, the patio and pool were large, but the hot tub really only fit 4 adults. Every bedroom is private with its own bath, which was great. Main kitchen is small for this size house, but adequate, and we mostly cooked outdoors. A wonderful time! Pool was not heated when we arrived, so we couldn't use it at all the first day. Also, unfortunately, the freezer in the 2nd kitchen didn't work (you were waiting for a part). We tried 3 blenders before we found one that worked, but there were 3 blenders to try. Portia was great! I have recommended you. And my family and I have used Vacation Palm Springs several times in the past 5 years. "
