Recent Palm Desert vacation rental reviews

This home is well equipped for everything you will need to live comfortably. The outdoor areas are especially nice with a beautiful and very private pool and spa. The neighborhood is quiet and very well taken care of. The home is conveniently located to all of the activities we enjoy in the desert including hiking, shopping, enjoying the Beauty of the Desert and fine dining. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need for an extended stay as well.

Loved this spacious home, which accommodated my 3 adult kids and their “significant others” While they worked from home during covid. Great location near Civic Center Park, with tennis courts and jogging paths👍

This, on the whole, was a very nice enjoyable place for a Palm Desert retreat. We used the backyard/pool extensively. Vacasa was very responsive to our requests. As to the negs: some of the floor mats at the doors were filthy. The linens were very used and should have been changed. I could not get the cooktop to boil water. All this said, we were wanting to book the place again for next year the last week of April and first two weeks in May. These weeks are really part of the off season. Despite that the owners, I assume, wanted to raise the daily rate 34%. We were not willing to meet the new rate. Frankly, it was ridiculous. There are plenty of places available jist as nice or nicer for less money. Too bad. We would have rented it annually.
