Randy says ‘Peaceful and Spacious ’
April 2019. Beautiful, spacious, newer home in a quiet gated community. Two swimming pools, basketball court, and tennis court within two blocks of house for use. Great affordable golf course in community. The owners made the whole experience excellent. No issues with booking, access, billing, etc.. Highly recommend.

Cheryl says ‘Beautiful Views and Relaxing Stay!’
The premises were absolutely beautiful! I felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. Everything was new as advertised and very clean. The view was spectacular and could never get tired of the mountain view! Very friendly community! You couldn’t ask for better owners. They communicated with us to ensure everything was going well and responded quickly when we had any questions. Very accommodating! Highly recommended!

We stayed at this property in Cathedral City for eight nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has everything that you could possibly want including a well stocked fridge! If you are looking for a really nice, affordable place to stay, take a close look at this property!

Joan says ‘Good location’
This condo is in a great location just one house away from one of the 20 saltwater pools on the resort and has a lovely view of the mountains from both the front and back patio. Unfortunately this condo is on the tired side --if you are young enough not to be bothered by a sagging mattress and old pillows/cushions etc. you'll be fine. But if comfort is important to you, you'd best inquire first if they have upgraded the beds/sofa etc. since the writing of this review.
Stayed with spouse - Would not recommend to friends and family
We were forced to leave this condo early and return to Canada because of Covid-19 this March. When we contacted the host and requested a refund for the days unused, we were told that they would definitely refund the unused days. After numerous emails, we have had no response to date and this is now 7 weeks after our departure. We took the host at her word and we have been “ghosted”! If you plan to rent and change dates, or request a refund after you’ve paid a deposit, you can probably expect the same lack of communication that we encountered. We would definitely NOT recommend this property to others.
Stayed with family - Would not recommend to friends and family
Other than the cleanliness of the pool, which was promptly remedied, our stay was extremely enjoyable.We have been visiting the Palm Desert area for over 40 years and this is the nicest and most spacious home we have rented. We will definitely be back next year.
I had read a few reviews claiming this was all a scam but it's not! They literally have 24/7 LIVE help and they're quick. The payments For the rental are easy to make and the home was amazing! Great experience for my first time renting a vacation home. I'd recommend it to my friends and family.
We rented the Tahquitz River Beauty for Labor Day weekend for 7 people. We arrived late on a Friday and realized the next morning that the house hadn't been properly cleaned (we found broken glass on the floor). I called Turn Key and they were very professional and sent over a cleaning crew and maintenance man who made the house sparkling clean and fixed a few needed repairs :) The local rep from Palm Springs was a little rude at first, but overall everyone was really nice and the office checked in with me once everything was clean and ready. They also refunded us the cleaning fee.
PROS: - The house is super cute! Great living room area. - Comfortably fits 7 people (could fit more if needed) - The kitchen is great for cooking and entertaining (tip: there are hidden drawers within the kitchen makes more sense when you see it). - Great pool and backyard (great grill too!) - Great location; close to downtown PS, close to grocery store and Starbucks :)
As someone who rents vacation homes in Palm Springs once or twice per year, I am incredibly disappointed in our overall experience at this property. The home and outdoor space was beautiful and comfortable, but the lack of information made it difficult to relax and enjoy the amenities. Since there was no guide or handbook for the home we struggled to figure out how to close the gate, operate the electric blinds, turn down the AC, light the fire pit, heat the pool and operate the TV. We had to make at least 3 calls to Turnkey and while they were helpful, polite and quick to respond, this was a big intrusion on our vacation. The AC wasn't working properly and it got pretty hot during our last night's stay but it was too late to get someone out to repair it until the next day. The jacuzzi heater wasn't on when we arrived so we had to wait 12-18 hours for that to heat up, and the pool was cold and needed to be heated but since there weren't instructions on how to do so, that also took approx 18 hours. The electri
This house could not have been better. It had every amenity you could ask for. The kitchen was amazingly stocked. The decor was beautiful. Bathrooms clean and stocked. The house was available early and they offered late check out. An overall amazing experience and we are planning to rent the same house next year.
Beautifully decorated and spacious, was clean and had everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. It’s got a full kitchen; washer and dryer, bathrooms had miniature soap, shampoo, and conditioner (like a hotel). There were plenty of towels. The pool area and backyard had many areas to relax. Nice to have a market close by for last minute errands.
This rental was perfect for our girls getaway. The place was spotless and very spacious. There were two rooms inside and two separate rooms with their own bathrooms outside that were disconnected from the house. Everyone had their own privacy. The pool area was so nice to lounge around. It had enough lounge chairs and umbrellas for everyone to be comfortable. I give this house 5 starts, but our interaction with turn key was not so great. The security alarm had a low battery so it kept beeping. We tried to turn it off and accidentally set off the alarm. We called turnkey and they gave us the code to turn it off and also said they will have someone come the next day to change the battery. It was Kate so we were fine with that. Well the next day nobody showed and we had the same issue with the beeping and setting off the alarm. The cops showed up this time and turnkey couldn't give us any advice since the code wasn't working this time around. The alarm went off numerous times during the night and nobody got ade
When we arrived the prior renters left a note complaining about things...however most of it we disregard it is disturbing to walk in and read such a note and does leave a bad taste in your mouth...the cleaning people should have gotten rid of it before we arrived... If you want a copy of note, please contact me I took a picture...I also think that when leaving supplies the amount of guests and time renting should be taken into account and the appropriate amount of supplies provided... IE toilet paper and towels...Also I received several emails about iPad being low on power and i haven't even touched it in a day or more get back to condo and its at 50+ percent...and the code to get in is long and tedious especially when its super dark out and you fumbling through phone for email with number plus using phone for light...I suggest a 4 or 5 digit number thats easy to remember...
The house was everything I can asked for to celebrate my birthday. Love the location and peaceful neighborhood. The pictures are exactly the same, and the rooms were wonderful. Super clean, very cute decor. A few issues, no pool light, the pool temperature was acting up, our last night at the house the pool water was super hot you could even see steam coming out the pool which made it really difficult to enjoy the pool our last night. But overall the house is extremely gorgeous! I would recommend it to all my friends.
This was a great house. Super clean when we got there and a great place for our family. The pool is a good size (we've been tricked in the past with some wide angle lens photography). Turnkey was very responsive and super fast responding whenever anything needed to be fixed. The only downside of this place is that the 4th bedroom is located far from the air conditioning unit and is MUCH warmer than the rest of the bedrooms and house. Very close to the tramway and grocery stores, etc.
The house was gorgeous and very clean. I am a 35 yr old mother of three who was traveling to a nursing conference for Pediatric Oncology. At 610pm on the second night of our stay, myself and 7 other nurses (one being the manager of our unit) decided to come back to our place to have drinks, order out, and debrief on the last couple of weeks with all the deaths on our unit. Again at 610pm, I was called to the door where a officer and turn key employee who did not introduce himself rudely asked if I was Hayley and if I had signed the contract stating the rules on "Amplified music." I stated "of course." The music that was playing in the background was from an Iphone with NO speakers. We have several videos that show that you can not even hear the music over us talking. Long story short I was mortified and humiliated when with no warning was given a 500 dollar ticket and then evicted from property. I was given 30 minutes to get my stuff together and get out. Again, we are 30 something professionals with our boss
Very nice, clean confortable and welcoming condo. Hectic arrival as the code had not ben given to us. We ended up at the door at 4pm after 25 hours of traveling from Europe. Finally managed to reach Turnkey and everything went fine from there. A few key problems during our stay but the management was very pro and everything was solved. I highly recommend!
Let's start by saying the house it self is nice but unfortunately I feel that the stay was doomed since the start. 1st Turnkey did not send us the correct door code and could not get one to us that would work, standing outside in the heat for 25+ min trying to get in. Once in found a dead bug look like roach in the middle of the floor, it looked like it had been dead for a while. Master bedroom some kind of splatter all over sink and vanity - looked like old vomit?? If I had not of prepaid the rental I would of checked into a hotel/resort right at that point! Master shower water did not heat up past a cold temp. - yikes not good when you are supposed to shave your legs. Small black bug constantly found throughout house, think it's time for pest spraying on the exterior. On the bright side the pool and patio were very nice. Second and might be last year I use TKVR for my annual desert trip.
