Where we want to go next:
I really enjoyed my stay. Everything was as advertised. It was farther from Yale than I thought but that was because I am not familiar with New Haven. The hosts were so friendly and helpful, I felt like I was staying with longtime caring friends. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Jacque, for your great directions, information and warm hospitality.
Clean room. Nice hosts.
A wonderful week at this Diamond Resorts International time share facility. The 1 bedroom suite was reasonably well appointed with lots of housekeeping tools including a full kitchen. At our request the owner arranged for a 2nd floor suite facing the elaborate pool area equipped with water sports, dual waterslides & poolside bar/restaurant. Check in was a bit confusing as the "reception office" actually relates to the time share sales presentation attendees. Property was recently acquired by Diamond Resorts and some updating in suites still needed but overall a good experience and fair value for the peak season in Palm Springs. The owners did all within their power to keep their promises. Only serious issue was the VERY slow internet ...supplied at $29.95 per week by AT & T....which at times was literally as slow as dial up.
The time share sales presentation by Diamond Resorts was very high pressure, but professional and attendance was optional although that is not the initial impression on check in. I definitely would return to this property again.
Jacque and David are wonderful hosts. Jacque communicated with me before I arrived in town and held the room for me, even through later, before I could confirm, there were other people interested. The first night, they waited for my arrival and we all went grocery shopping. This was a great help. The room was comfortable and quiet, very relaxing. Easy commute to anywhere I wanted to go. Renting a car was very helpful, though I think it could be done without a car rental.
Initially, I was concerned about my mild allergy to cats and there was absolutely no problem. The cats are amazing and totally sweet, they added to the pleasure of the trip.
I would definitely stay with them again. This was a longer trip and the time absolutely flew by. Thanks for the stay!
David and Jacque were really great to stay with. We were in town from Oregon for an interview and their room was the perfect place to get acclimated. My shirt needed ironing and Jacque kindly let be borrow her iron. We highly recommend staying with them and we already miss their two friendly cats. Thanks for the hospitality!
I enjoyed staying at Jacque`s and David´s place a lot. The room is lovely, clean and even equipped with a computer, scanner and printer.
Both are really sweet, friendly and supportive. Jacque offered to pick me up at a bus station since it was dark already. I was so grateful since the bus system screwed me up. Thus I would recommend the place for those traveling by car. In case you are dependent on the bus system to get to Yale this might be not the best place to stay - especially when you need to stay until evening hours at Yale.
And if you are allergic to cats I would not stay there since the cats will make their way into your room.
However - it was a pleasure to be there and meet these lovely couple.
It was very nice staying with David and Jacque. They're nice and easy going people. They were accommodating and helpful.
We also enjoyed their beautiful cats and we already miss them.

Jacque and David were kind, welcoming, and helpful. I could not have stayed in a better place in New Haven. David helped me to carry in my luggage, and Jacque thoroughly explained the bus schedule. The two cats also welcomed me as a long-lost friend! The first day that I arrived was pretty hot, and I acutely noticed the absence of air conditioning. But on cooler days, this would not be a problem. Overall, my stay with J and D was lovely. I highly recommend them and their home!
I had a great experience staying with David and Jacque. This was my first trip to the USA and my first experience with Airbnb. David and Jacque went out of their way to make me feel welcome and help me get settled. I stayed for a total of 3 weeks and had a great time. There is a bus stop directly out the front of their house and it is a very easy 20min ride downtown. I am very grateful for David and Jacques hospitality and look forward to staying with them again soon!
We really enjoyed our short stay in New Haven. Jaques and David were really hospitable and the room was comfortable and great value. We would definitely recommend this listing.
Jacque and David are excellent guests. Friendly, fun people. Thanks for leaving the cottage in such great order. Come back anytime.
