Good things: - plenty of space in the appartments - parking Things to improve: - check in by 5pm only (check in later is possible however more complicated) - some appartments were refurbished while others not (yet) - nobody in there in the beginning of September, but pool was kept clean

We arrived having traveled around California for two weeks and were ready for some rest and relaxation. We were warmly greeted by staff and provided with lots of useful information. The accommodation was great - clean, homely and well proportioned for the four of us and facilities were good too. There is an on site laundry and bikes for use.... More

As a result you will find extremely large rooms especially the master bedroom with lots of storage including a massive closet in the master bedroom two bathrooms with granite the kitchen is somewhat outdated but very large the units are kept clean and very friendly staff....

My second visit to Palm Springs and the Desert Vacation Villas. Everything I was promised was delivered. The rooms were clean and well-equipped with silverware, flatware, pots and pans, extra linings, towels, and paper products. The grounds are nice and our villa had two patios upon which we enjoyed beautiful mountain views. A small pool and hot tub along with... More

This is a nice place to relax. The unit was very clean and well supplied, although the knives, as usual, were not very good. (We travel with our own knives because of this.) The staff was friendly and attentive. The pool area was nice and comfortable with shady and sunny places to lie down. There were nice beach toys and... More

We spent the weekend at Desert Vacation Villas to celebrate a birthday. Twelve women in two villas. The set up was perfect. They were nice enough to put us next door to each other so we were able to walk back and forth with ease and relative privacy. The rooms were roomy and the bathroom in the hall was large.... More

We actually rented 3 of these condos for our family to stay in for the week. My wife is very picky when it comes to cleanliness & she had zero complaints about our condos. The beds were very comfortable & the full kitchen is always a nice way to save money. The pool/jacuzzi area is well maintained. The pool was... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Desert Vacation Villas. It is like a Condo, and is located in the sophisticated Uptown Design District in North Palm Springs, with art galleries, interior design studios, decoration stores, and upscale restaurants, adjacent to the Luxurious Estates in the Old Las Palmas area of North Palm Springs, including the Elvis Presley Estate and...

We stayed here for a week. Had a wonderful week staying at this resort, a little dated, but with recent bathroom upgrades/renos. Kitchen adequately equipped for making a meal or two. The bed in the masterbed room was comfortable, although the fitted sheet was so tightly fitted that it kept popping off - just a little annoying. The two bedroom... More

Very roomy for two adults and two children. Three balconies, two bedrooms, living room and kitchen. We had a car so we were able to reach local sites. We had to call for arrangements to get the key (as explained to us in advance). The pool is on the small side and it's not set up like a full-service hotel,... More
