Guestbook comments from the owner

The landscaping and location are both fantastic! The house is well stocked with kitchen appliances, towels, etc. and we loved the outdoor cooking area. The pool is definitely a little chilly unless you heat it, being from MN and coming here in March, we were just glad to see liquid water, so chose not to heat it. Lisa was very helpful and accommodating throughout the rental process and was easy to get in touch with. One tip for when you first arrive (especially if it's at night), is to look for the address on the curb. We drove back and forth a couple of times before realizing we were at the right location, and discovered one of the most wonderful features of the house; its completely hidden from the street, neighbors, etc.! Once inside the gate, you are in your own, private retreat, and its beautiful! The neighborhood is also beautiful and quiet - very few cars driving by. If your are looking for private and peaceful, I would recommend this property!

Thank you for a great time!

Christmas in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

The Spa Oasis Retreat was a perfect get away for my husband and I to celebrate the holidays. There are two bedrooms separated with a long hallway, with the master having its own private bathroom. The master is large, with doors leading directly to the pool. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything needed to cook a small Christmas dinner for the two of us. The pool area is private, and beautiful. We paid to have the pool heated , and it was well worth the extra money. The location is fantastic- close to the airport and also down town. Lisa is easy to work with and very accommodating. Overall a great trip.

We want to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We're so sad to be home from our perfect holiday in Palm Springs.

Right from the start Lisa was very easy to contact and deal with. When we arrived we called her. She walked us through the house by phone making sure that we knew how to operate everything like the hot tub and such.

The house is all that we needed! Two great bedrooms that are at either end of the house and lots of room for two couples to spread out and have privacy. One of the bedrooms has a big en suite bathroom. The kitchen is very well equipped and has virtually every small appliance you could ever need. We broke a couple of glasses while we were there. When we notified Lisa of the accident she was very understanding and thankful that we had replaced what we broke.

The pool is a salt water pool and is amazing. The pool guy popped in twice a week to check on it and give it a clean. He was very quick and not at all a bother. There was lots of pool toys to float around on and pool noodles and foam weights to play with. We used them all every day! There are three cruiser style bikes that are great for an easy ride around the neighbourhood.

It's a great location not too far from Ruth Hardy park. It's an easy walk to shops and great restaurants. Close to downtown but very quiet.

We wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. This was our second time staying here and we would definitely stay again. This is a beautiful home in a fantastic neighborhood. There are great mountain views to enjoy when you take a walk in the mornings. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook a meal, but also you are very close to great restaurants. Everything was perfect.

Great property, location, and owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two kids under 10) had a great time staying here. The owner was great to work with, good communication and logistics were very easy. Location was good, pretty easy to get around, also nice to have a couple of bikes at the house. Pool, hot tub, and surrounding pool area was really nice - great for relaxing before and after daily activities. When we come back to Palm Springs, we will be staying here again!
