I was meeting my parents in Palm Springs for a weekend and found Lisa's condo. I sent an inquiry and had a response from Lisa within minutes. I booked it and Lisa was wonderfully communicative every step of the way. She even offered restaurant & activity recommendations.
I was attending a conference and my parents were driving in from AZ and were due to arrive several hours before I wrapped up. Lisa made it effortless and assured me that my Dad's name would be at the guard shack and gave explicit instruction to retrieve the key from the lockbox. This was wonderful, as it allowed my folks to get in and get settled, since I wasn't going to be able to get there until the evening.
When I did get there, the guard station had my name and directed me to the condo. There was plenty of parking right in front, which is critical. (I'm from L.A. where parking is usually an ordeal.) I arrived to find my folks lounging on the comfy leather sofas, enjoying the view of the golf course. Lisa left a box of pancake mix for us to use to make breakfast the next morning, along with a very sweet note welcoming us for our stay.
The kitchen was well equipped. We prepared several meals, including steaks on the gas grill on the patio. This was such a treat! Especially since the dishwasher made cleanup a breeze. Also, the fridge has filtered in-door water and an ice dispenser - which made staying hydrated easy.
The bedrooms are stylish and well appointed. High quality bed linens, plenty of fresh bath linens, fresh packaged soap in the shower, spacious, well-lit bathrooms, and excellent water pressure in the showers; these little details mean a lot!
The living room features a very large LG TV with digital cable. We were also able to log in our Netflix and Hulu+ accounts on the TV to watch movies, which was awesome. Plenty of outlets for charging all our iDevices. Getting on the Wi-Fi was a breeze - another major plus!
The condo is in a great location - only minutes from downtown PS, and has several grocery stores nearby, making it easy to enjoy the full kitchen. The patio has a beautiful view of the golf course and pools are only steps away.
Also, the A/C works wonderfully! (It IS Palm Springs.) It was 102 degrees outside, and we were watching movies and dining in 75 degrees.
In a nutshell, this condo is comfortable, stylish, clean, and has all the modern conveniences you could want or need. It's a tremendous value. Lisa is a wonderful host and made my first time booking on AirBnB and it was a smash success! We will definitely be back! Thank you, Lisa!
