My husband and I stayed in the Desert Springs Villas I for a week during the BNP Paribas Tennis Open, and the property exceeded our expectations. Our one bedroom apartment was immaculate and incredibly homey, with a sectional and large coffee table for conversation or watching the flat screen TV. There was also a fireplace that would have been welcome... More

We love it for family trips because you can easily get groceries and cook meals in the kitchen. So you don't have to eat every meal out which is awesome. My... More
