These units were originally built as apartments and then became timeshares and hotel rooms. 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lots of storage including a massive closet in the master bedroom two bathrooms with granite the kitchen is somewhat outdated but very large the units are kept clean and very friendly staff....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...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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,...

So I was there for a birthday celebration. It was 6 women in a 2 bedroom condo. The condo wasn't bad but the beds were HORRIBLE! We all said that it felt like we slept on rocks (yes, even the sofa bed). The pool was a joke and too small. There was no shade anywhere. Would I stay there again.....

We got a recently renovated room that was perfect for a family trip as we were able to cook all meals at home and everyone had their own TV with cable. The rooms are great, fully renovated apart from the cottage cheese walls and ceiling. The grounds are a bit of a let down. No real landscaping, just some sad...
