The property was as advertised and more. Perfect location - could not ask for more. HOWEVER - we were shocked at the cleanliness of the unit. The bathrooms were clean however the rest had some issues ie; wet smelly towelss were left in the dryer, the kitchen table still had food on it, place mats in the drawer had actual lumps of food imbedded. The towels in the bedroom walkin closet were not stacked neatly but were literally thrown all over the place. In the living room none of the lights worked, we had to purchase lught bulbs ourselves. There was a can of carpet clean under the sink so my wife got down on her hands and knees to try and removes the worst stains. THAT SAID, all these issues I believe are issue with the cleaning crew. They simply are not doing the job they are paid for. WOULD WE RETURN - ABSOLUTELY - I am sure once the problem is adressed the unit would be A+++

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: I have had a serious discussion with the owner of my cleaning service (Home Cleaning Centers of America) and he assures me that the manager of his crew will be put on notice that if there are any more comments of this nature that she might have to find herself a new job. He extends his apologies for the unfortunate experience you might have had. Also, if you do decide to return in the future he will not charge you a cleaning fee.

Dirty and Infested with Rodents

Review submitted: October 25, 2010   Date of arrival: October 3, 2010

" This place is a dump!!! It was old and not kept up!! The carpet was stained and not shampooed in forever. There was garbage and food under the beds, there were stains on the walls and on the baseboards. My husband chased crickets around the condo the first night and was plugging holes in the floor where they were entering. Not only were there several crickets living in the place but there was an infestation of ants. There were boxes of cereal in the cupboards, a broken glass in the dishwasher, dirty dishes. The appliances( washer and dryer were ancient) and the microwave handle was held together with duct tape. We had originally rented the condo for 10 days but left after day 2 because of the horrible conditions. We called the owner regarding the above issues and he told us to deal with the rodents because they were part of visiting the desert.

The condo was fantastc---perfect for our family's needs. The amenities were great & the home was comfortable. And Rik was great to work with. We've decided that we may never stay in a hotel room again---the condo spoiled us!

I would absoutely recommend this property highly. We found it to be everything and more then we expected. Rik was fantastic to work with and even called while we were vacationing to make sure everything was going well. The grounds and the staff were great and we look forward to going back again and again. Thanks for a great vacation.

We had a great time, the condo was exactly as we expected and we loved the resort's golfing amenities. Rik was a pleasure to deal with and made the rental arrangements particularly easy to complete. We will definitely rent from Rik again. Thanks Rik!

This condo is exactly as advertised on vrbo. We were very satisfied and would rent the unit again. The location within the gated complex is excellent.
