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!
Melinda delivers everything she promises. The location is key, you can actually walk down town. The complex is safe and gated with incredibly friendly people and the pool/tennis courts are great. The condo itself is well organized and has everything you need.
Very comfortable condo, walking distance to downtown Palm Springs, great pools and facilities, highly recommended.
We had a Wonderful time at the Sandstone Villas. It was very safe (gated community) and peaceful (hardly anyone about ever) and we spent more time by the pool having beer and bbq than was expected because it was just so relaxing.
The condo itself was perfect, a really good size considering it was 1 bedroom. Melinda's suggestions could have kept us busy for months :) We WILL be back in PS and this place will be high up our list of ideal places to stay.
This was a great home away from home! If you are travelling to palm springs and dont know much about the area, Melinda has done a great job of making it easy to not only get around but figuring out what to do and when. The location could not be more perfect as it is literally minutes away from everything. I would defeneitly reccomend this to anyone travelling to palm springs!
Very convenient location, real basic furnishing, total private backyard area, nice room proportions.
