Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends & I stayed here for a "weekend getaway" in April. It was an amazing time, and the owner was very informative/helpful. The house was spacious (group of 10 stayed), clean, and with all the amenities needed for a great weekend!!

Fabulous Sisters, Aunties and Cousins Retreat

  • 5 of 5
From the first email until the time we had to turn our keys back over at the end of the vacation, the care and commitment by Rhonda was simply fabulous. This was a reunion of sorts with sisters, cousins and aunts and we just wanted a nice home where we could cook, sit out in the sun for a bit and truly just hang. The home exceeded everything we wanted. It is filled with every single pot, pan, coffee maker, towel, etc. you could ever need. AND it is an historic mid-century home that has been incredibly restored and updated. We WILL look back to this home when we return!

Birthday Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We just got home from a lovely weekend at Rosie's property and have nothing by all star reviews. This was our 5th VRBO experience, and easily the best. We were drawn in by the 2 night stay. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a welcome basket and a stocked kitchen. The house looks even better in person than it does in the photos. The 5 bedrooms and large living room provided plenty of space for the 10 of us to relax. The pool and outdoor space was also fantastic. We have added this home to the top of our weekend getaway list - excellent location, lots of space, and stellar hospitality.

Great home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful Wexler-designed home in a great location with a spectacular view of the San Jacinto Mountains. The layout of the house worked very well for our family of 8. Each family unit had our own space and adjacent bathroom, at no time during the full week did we ever feel like we were on top of each other. In addition, the house is very well organized and has every amenity imaginable – pool towels, water toys, a full kitchen and pantry, movies, magazines, etc. The owner, Rosie, provided a much appreciated basket of goodies upon our arrival and a personal tour of the house and grounds. My whole family recommends this house as a great place to rent!

The fact that I have stayed here on six occasions says it all! I am in love with everything about this property including the spacious floor plan, heated pool, ample stocked kitchen, outdoor seating, and location. Plus, the owner of the house, Rosie, makes you feel like you are staying in the home of a favorite relative. She spoils you with her kindness and 'extra touches' that greet you when you arrive. I've told all my friends and family about this property -- and will continue to do so for years to come. I almost hate writing such a glowing review about the place, because I like to think of it as my own 'personal' oasis in the desert!
