Beautiful Palm Desert pool home - a lovely place to vacation!
We stayed in Michael's house for 5 weeks (February to March) and enjoyed it immensely. Before renting, he made arrangements for us to see the house - a real bonus. You really can't ask for a better home owner to work with. He was upbeat, positive and helpful. When we had questions, Michael responded within minutes and took care of any small problems the same day. When the coffee maker gave up partway through our visit, he brought another within 2 hours along with a pound of amazing gourmet coffee. He's a local so he can give you tips on places to eat and visit - and they're all great! The location of this house is convenient to everything - freeway access, shops, big box stores, the College of the Desert market and theatres. It is 2 blocks off Monterey and we were surprised at how quiet it was. The neighbourhood is upscale and well cared for. It's 3 bedroom house that sleeps 6 comfortably. It's open, bright, welcoming and equipped with all the basics needed for a long-term stay. The crystal fireplaces indoor and outdoor are a real bonus to warm the chilly winter evenings. The pool area is great and being able to control pool and spa heat results in a saving. We turned on the heat in the mornings when we wanted to use the pool, and turned it off in the mid-afternoon. The days we were not there, we didn't heat. It doesn't take long to get up to the temperature you want. Since we have 2 small dogs, the totally enclosed fenced yard was also appreciated. We also liked having a garage to park in. Service people are all pleasant - the pool man comes twice a week, the gardeners once. We would definitely stay at Michael's house again should we return to Palm Desert!
