This smaller property is well maintained and convenient to Palm Springs and attractions. It has a very nice pool and a very friendly staff. Don't miss a nearby restaurant, Billy Reeds, that is nearby and an easy walk from the condos. We had breakfast and dinner there and really enjoyed it. Moderately priced food with a wide selection of entrees.

Everything in the villa was adequate. Certainly clean and roomy but plain. Internet TV with wide range of options. Fast internet. 2 bathrooms, two balconies, plenty of towels. Reasonably good location as far as proximity to shopping, downtown etc. Pool was smallish but clean, warm and adequate. Way overpriced for our dates which was weekend two of the huge rock... More

Comfortable and nicely furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment rental with everything you'd need to spend a night to several months. Small but spotless pool and spa plus bikes to borrow and a guest laundry. Convenience store directly across the street and Rick's Grille (homey, reasonable, and delicious) kitty-corner from the place. You absolutely will NOT find nicer, more accommodating... More

Good things: - plenty of space in the appartments - parking Things to improve: - check in by 5pm only (check in later is possible however more complicated) - some appartments were refurbished while others not (yet) - nobody in there in the beginning of September, but pool was kept clean

This is a nice place to relax. The unit was very clean and well supplied, although the knives, as usual, were not very good. (We travel with our own knives because of this.)

We spent the weekend at Desert Vacation Villas to celebrate a birthday. Twelve women in two villas. The set up was perfect.
