Nice stay here for a week in mid-November
The house was spotlessly clean and in a pretty good location in North Palm Springs, close to the Aerial Tram, freeway to LA, Indio and Joshua Tree, and just a 5-10 minute drive to the many restaurants on Palm Canyon Dr. The internet service and TV package were fine. The highlight for us was the large spa/Jacuzzi that was located at one end of the pool. It was well heated to spa temperatures for no extra cost, but in mid-November the pool was too cold to use, so if you want to use it any later in the season you'll certainly have to pay the extra cost to have it heated (maybe a solar blanket would help?). Some minor improvements would certainly help: the living room sofa (really just a love seat) is small and basic, as are other furniture and decor; the dining room table is essentially an indoor picnic table; there are no chest of drawers in either bedroom and, even though there are 3 big closets in the two bedrooms, there are also no drawers or shelves in either of them, so we had to use the bed of the second bedroom to pile our folded clothes --- adding shelves to one or two of the closets would be a big help. The owner was friendly and responsive and readily available by phone/text/email, although she lives some distance away, but there were no written instructions left for renters for things like the internet, garbage, and spa. Also, there was a bare minimum of kitchen items, e.g. exactly 4 of each plate and cutlery type, so we had to use the dishwasher even after a light breakfast, and there were no wine glasses or wine bottle corker. These minor improvements would certainly be appreciated by future guests.
