My friend and I stayed at the "el cortez" during the indian wells tennis tournament. The house is clean, comfortable, updated, and supplied with everything you need to cook your own meals. The pool is private and the hot tub portion is fantastic, with some of the most powerful jets I have ever experienced. There are two bedrooms - one with a king bed and one with two queens. There are two bathrooms - one is newly updated, but they both have great water pressure and counter space. Soap is provided, but bring your own shampoo. The location is great - as there are stores and restaurants a short drive away. The owners are fantastic and live locally. Our one issue was that there was no "tennis channel" on the TV, and the owners were quick to try to remedy it. They called the cable company - who said they would send over the updated equipment that day. It never arrived - as cable companies aren't the most reliable - but any future renters should have plenty of channels. We would definitely stay there again next year if we have 6 or less people.
