When I found this condo listing on Airbnb I was very excited because it sounded like exactly what I was looking for. Melinda was very easy to get ahold of to confirm our booking. I was struck by her kindness, great communication skills and organization. I booked a few months in advance of our holiday and Melinda kept in touch as the vacation approached. To my delight, the condo was just as described.
This condo is excellently located in South Palm Springs and it is tucked away in a quiet spot but has easy access to main streets. There is lovely walking in the area and hiking trails nearby.
The condo is spacious and well appointed with luscious towel (both bath and beach towels) and comfortable beds. The kitchen also has ample glassware, dish ware and flatware. Melinda has really thought of everything and even has glass storage containers for left overs, an electric kettle, juicer and other kitchen appliances that just make life easier. There is a private patio that is very clean and has a new bbq. Another plus for many guests would be that there are flatscreen televisions in each bedroom and the living room so if you like to watch a movie before bed you can.
The only con that I have is that the condo does not get a lot of natural light in the main living areas in the daytime (2 of the bedrooms have beautiful natural light during the day though). This only bothered me because I was spending 4 hours per day inside while my baby napped. If not for this, I probably wouldn't have noticed as I would be outside at the pool or seeing the sights. On the flip side, the condo stays cool in the day and would likely be great during PS's hot summer months when you want to get out of the sun.
Overall, we had a great experience and this condo suited our family's needs perfectly. Melinda was truly a delight to deal with and was quick to respond to any query that we had. I would wholeheartedly recommend this accommodation to anyone.
Melinda was probably the most accommodating host we've ever experienced in our years of renting vacation spots. There's nothing she won't do to help you out and take care of any possible challenges you may be going through. Also, the layout of the condo was really great with the Master Bed/Bath on one side, two great bedrooms and a full bath on the other side, and a great family/dining/kitchen area in the middle. Also, the location, about a mile and a half south of downtown Palm Springs, is ideal. We also love going to Indian Canyons, the best natural wonder in the Cochella Valley, and this condo is in a perfect spot for that.
Very glad you and the family had a great time. We certainly had our fair share of amusements. As they say, until the next trip!
good value as offered. evey quiet location. melinda went out of her way to help us. which we are grateful for. would stay there again.
Melinda was a great communicator and was very organized. She responded very quickly with all of my questions and was very kind.
Melinda's welcome was warm and full excitement; a great way to start our week long stay in the build up to Coachella! We were stoked to have some down time before the festival to enjoy the pool and sunshine, as well Palm Springs in general. The unit is just what we needed. Air-con, fully set up kitchen and a cute courtyard to enjoy some sunset drinks. It is a private complex though with residents on all sides, so be conscience of that fact. There were 4 of us and we fitted in comfortably. Everything we needed. Thanks for the great hospitality and would certainly recommend to others!
My second stay here and I brought a couple more friends to experience this Desert Oasis. Repeat guests indicate a great place just be being repeat guests. We all loved this home. Melinda is top-notch, friendly and a class act; just another reason why I will keep returning.
Great location. Complete amenities. And a wonderful host. Melinda is conscientious, responsive and attentive. I appreciated all of the "extras" she made available, including recommendations for things to do in Palm Springs as well as checking in before and during my stay. She has thoughtfully furnished her unit with the visitor in mind.
I loved how close the condo is to the city of Palm Springs. I miss my daily walks into the city- about a mile away. Given the location and Melinda's attention to detail, I highly recommend a stay at her property. Thank you, Melinda.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandstone Villas, which seemed to be home away from home for lots of Canadians. People were friendly and said hello. Melinda was responsive, helpful and attentive throughout the booking process. The kitchen is well-appointed and we shopped at Ralph's and made our own meals, much of the time.
We also had a lot of fun playing around on the multi-sport courts (set up for tennis, basketball and volleyball - you bring the gear) directly outside the unit. The solar-heated pool is delightful -- sparkling and warm. Take Melinda's pool noodles with you for added fun and flotation. The jacuzzi was clean and well-maintained. You can grill poolside and it was very quiet. You won't have to fight for lounge chairs or grill time. Nice :)
We were very lazy in the evenings and watched nearly everything in Melinda's movie collection. Our favorite was Nixon/Frost. There was a documentary about the local date farm, which was quite interesting too.
Our favorite activity was visiting the Integratron and clambering on rocks at Joshua Tree. If you are looking for a good yoga class, we liked Power Yoga Palm Springs.
In summary: A great find! I will note that I prefer a softer mattress and sheets. This place has a firm bed and the sheets were just okay. The overall convenience and value is excellent if you are looking for a few days of peaceful respite in the desert. Four stars!
Our 2nd stay was as good as the first !!!
We love this place it's a real home from home.
See you again soon and thanks for everything
What an absolute gem this home is. Yes, it's your home during your stay. Everything has been provided and the comforts here are many: great bed, sofa, bbq grill, dining area, fully stocked kitchen, grocery store 10 minutes away, nice walking distance to downtown. It doesn't get better. The pools and hot tubs are great after a day of exploring and seeing the desert sky is magical. Melinda is just so easy to work with and I am looking forward to a return to her "desert oasis". Highly recommended. Grab this one!
