Guestbook comments from the manager

Everything was great. We enjoyed staying at your home. Gate passes were ready when we got there. It was nice to come back to a quiet home at the end of the day. If we get the chance to attend Coachella again or visit the area we would definitely stay at your home again. Thanks again for everything

Awesome home & location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stuart was very responsive to my inquiries and answered all of my questions quickly. His arrival instructions are excellent as is the information book at the home. The property itself was wonderful. The home and features were as advertised--exactly like what you see in the pictures. It feels like a home rather than a rental. The front gate security was friendly and the gated entrance made me feel very safe and secure. When first entering, you will realize how spacious this place is. Everything you will need is available to you ranging from laundry room to towels to a full set of cookware. Both bedrooms are en suite with a private bathroom. Wi-Fi is fast and there is a TV with cable in each room plus a big screen with surround sound in the living room along with a stereo system. A super fun bonus is the “tiki” golf cart with its own blender for your drinks--really fun to roam the neighborhood or get to and from the pool/Jacuzzi. The location is tranquil and yet central to stores and restaurants nearby. The home is located on the first fairway of the PGA West Stadium Golf Course—where the Pros play each year. So, fantastic view from the back patio. Easy access to Indian Wells Tennis Garden and great location for cycling and of course golf. Loved this home. Will definitely return. Rating A+.

Our Stay in the Desert

  • 3 of 5

The place is well kept and clean. The kitchen is well equipped.

We did not enjoy the patio which was a huge disappointment for us. There is a very messy tree in the back and one had to sweep constantly. The patio is missing a dining table with chairs. The Tiki Bar is falling apart and the Tiki Cart barely made it around the block.

Owner's Response: We find this review very interesting. We strive to provide a beautiful environment for our guests. I love the patio and will be found dead there someday, just enjoying the view and the atmosphere. The patio has four different table heights from which to choose. You can eat at the bar, which is a tiki bar, and is supposed to look tiki, it is not falling apart. There is a nice large round table that has a big lazy susan in the middle, a fire pit you can dine at, which is lower and a regular table that sits two. Not sure with 14 seats and 20 chairs, what is actually missing. The Tiki cart may be a valid point. Desert Cove has been rented for 4 months straight, Golf carts take maintenance. Probably need water in the batteries, but no worries for future renters, the lead acid batteries are being replaced next week with lithium batteries, the cart will be very fast and very reliable from then on. I talk to these people several times and they never mentioned any of this to me. Always room for improvement!

Relaxation at its best!

  • 4 of 5

Our time at Desert Cove was very enjoyable! This unit has everything you need for your "home away from home" while on vacation. We found the outdoor patio area so relaxing, enjoying our breakfast while overlooking the first green of the Stadium Course watching the golfers in the early morning or just enjoying a sunset over the mountains at dusk. It was beautiful! The neighborhood is very walkable to get a morning walk in every day! PGA West is close to grocery, shops and restaurants but yet far enough away to give you peace and quiet too! Our host, Stuart was very accommodating and very easy to work with. He helped make this experience a good one!

Loved the PGA West

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this condo. My husband and I brought our granddaughter and her friend to Coachella. What a great place to stay. My husband was able to play golf each day just down the street. He played the Stadium Course and the Jack Nicklaus. He thought the courses were very challenging but great to play. We enjoyed the patio each evening as we waited for the kids to call from the festival. It couldn't have been more perfect for dropping them off and picking them up. We had the pool nearly to ourselves each day. The Tiki golf cart was a real plus. We enjoyed cruising around the huge PGA West complex. We got lots of 'thumbs up' as we traveled along. The neighbor picked us a fresh lemon to enjoy. Everyone we met was friendly. Stuart was great to work with both prior to arrival and during our stay. We are very grateful to him for going above and beyond for us. It will not be our last visit to this paradise.

The TIKI golf cart is always a hit at Desert Cove. Where do you rent and have a golf cart available to you. The cart is available for use by all guests and is complete with a blender. Wonderful for driving around for cocktail hour and enjoying the sights of PGA West. There are 54 pools at PGA West for you to enjoy, the nearest one is 40 yards away and very seldom is anyone there. At the house, there are a full array of video games in both the main room and the Golf bedroom. All TVs are new 1080p flatscreens. In the immediate area is some of the most famous fun, fair, and difficult Golf courses in the world. Besides the three Public Courses at PGA West, the is the wonderful and challenging Silverrock Course around the corner. And if you just want a cool par-3 to slap it around with a beer, the Indio Municipal course is perfect and always inexpensive. Tennis is also available, fishing around the corner at the reserve and lots of bike trails. And then there is the food, restaurants for all tastes, great pubs, sports bars and fine dining of most cuisines within a 5 minute drive. A really nice casino is within 20 minutes.
