Stayed here for 4 days with colleagues. We had two villas, with three people in each villa. Extremely comfortable and cost-efficient. The villa's kitchen has a large fridge, a stove and oven, microwave, and dishwasher, so we cooked our own breakfasts. There are two rooms: one master with a queen sized bed, and a smaller room with two single beds.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Desert Vacation Villas. Plenty of space for 3 of us and it was clean and quiet. It was 105 degrees in Palm Springs while we were there and our room was always comfortable and cool. Great value for the money!

My birthday falls on 4th of July and this year we wanted to venture out of Orange County to go some place different to escapet the fireworks madness. Although we chose the most hottest time to go at 109 degrees, we made the best of it in our cool, crisp roomy air conditioning rooms. Our experience at Desert Vacation Villas... More

Stayed here for one week in July with my 2 daughters. Loved having 2 bedrooms with 2 baths and the kitchen had everything imaginable for any cooking you would want to do. Perfect location with great view of mountains and nice and quiet. Loved laundry on site. Our condo was a little dated but they are redoing them all one... More

My friends and I rented a two room suite for the weekend. We were in Palm Springs for a senior softball tournament. We have stayed at many locations in Palm Springs, but this is the best stay ever. The Desert Vacation Villas are in a great location, the facility is neat and clean and the price cannot be beat. We... More

We have just stayed there for a week. Very clean. condo was spacious. Location is number 1. Pool was very well maintained and also ping pong table and bikes. Very laid back and quiet. No noise during the night. Go for the location and the clean environment.

So impressed by this time share. Great layout, quiet and ample parking. Nice pool and jacuzzi and bbq's avail. Close to town. Looking forward to staying again, The only down side is not enough lights in the bathrooms. Makes it difficult to see if taking a shower at night. No problem during the day since there are sky lights.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Location was excellent but quality of bed was poor. Woke up every morning with back pain. Near the downtown area and away from the crowd. Convenient for driving to all areas of interest.

This is an older resort but well maintained and very clean. The rooms were very comfortable and kitchen had all the basics. There is a guest laundry on premises which costs $1 per load. Great location near downtown, with plenty of stores and restaurants in walking distance.
