Guest Reviews for this Palm Springs Vacation Home
"We love the flow and comfort of the home. Our second stay at the Alex House - our family loves it. The lighting could be better. The lamps in the bedrooms too short for reading and there's only one floor lamp in the living area. Gerald and Bunnie were very helpful and gracious "
"The house was gorgeous, comfortable, well-appointed and in the perfect location. You really couldn't ask for anything more. "
Well Worth It!
"The Alex House is beautiful and spacious. It has everything you can possibly think of needing for a few days' stay. And whatever else you may need, you can easily pick up at several stores conveniently located within just a few miles. The saltwater pool plus the rainfall feature are just awesome. And the detached casita is a perfect addition! "
Everything We Needed
"We loved the house, the pool and the mountain views! We really felt like we were away from it all, but we could walk to downtown if we wanted. Roxy was very helpful- with information about the property and also area information. Her previous experience as a concierge was evident! Britt was very responsive to the AC issue we had while there as well. "
"Wow! This house has everything. We would move in and never leave if we could. Renting the property was quick and easy. Roxy was great. "
"The house was perfect for our family's needs. The open flow in the main house and the pool layout were ideal. "
Great Amenities and Location
"Spacious living, fantastic electronics with Sonos and Netflix, great array of dishes, pool toys etc. Great amenities, wine fridge, pool side fridge, great BBQ. "
Fabulous 40th Birthday Weekend!!!
"Love the house, layout, location, furnishings, cookware. Sonos system is very cool! Reservations were great! Seamless! "
Perfect for a Girls' Weekend Away
"Beautiful home with all of the amenities (including a snow cone maker). Everything was great except for the really loud noises that the house makes "settling" in due to the weather - makes sleeping especially in the master a little challenging. Overall, great location, perfect neighborhood, and lovely home. I would recommend telling people prior to renting that the house makes quite a bit of noise. I'm sure most would not be bothered and it wasn't a big deal, but definitely hampered sleep. Excellent service by all staff especially when calling to ask pre check in questions - thank you "
"A+ Home! Kelly was fabulous in property management. "
"The house was amazing! Great pool and spa, amazing views. We loved hanging out around the big firepit at night. The outdoor bed was the perfect place to getaway. The kids loved playing video games in the casita. You can tell these owners have kids because the house was perfectly set for a family. We were a little confused about the sound system. Josh walked us through it and it was great to play music from our iphones throughout the house. Vacation Palm Springs was great to work with. This was the perfect house. We'll definitely be back. "
