    Check in process was annoying. Multiple emails, calls and texts just to have someone meet us to walk us through the house. Not a deal breaker and some might like all the detail but it was a bit much for me. Spa was unusable do to 100’s of bees in and around the perimeter of it. Luckily they stayed near the spa and no real bee issue around the pool. The pool itself was beautiful but unfortunately we visited during a heat wave and the pool was extremely warm. Not as refreshing as I hoped it would be. The air conditioner was not strong enough to cool the entire house. During the day the house temps were in the mid to high 80’s. The kitchen area being the warmest.A few dead cockroaches and mouse were found on the patios and a couple dead and live cockroaches inside. Overall just not the stay I hoped for.

  • Hilltop Oasis secluded spectacular stay. Beautiful surroundings. Great hiking. Private and secluded.


    Hillside Oasis. Its location is secluded very private and absolutely incredible words cannot convey how special its location and the home are.

    This mid-century home is absolutely very well maintained and was immaculate upon our arrival. Its mid-century contemporary style is something else - the whole east side of the home is Floor to ceiling glass (really). Providing unobstructed views of Coachella valley and surrounding mountains that offer stunning Sunrise and Sunsets. This unique home sits at the highest point on the mountain side on Cahuilla Hills Drive that has a private gated road the home, with direct access to S. Lykken trail from its driveway. We were greeted by the owner that took enough time to acquaint us with a walk-thru about this special place including details of the City of Palm Springs downtown being just five minutes away along with restaurants, coffee houses, markets, the local dinging plus Canyon golf course and a horse riding stable. Specifics home details include - bedrooms are set up for privacy with the master bed/bath being on the pool side view of the valley - the very large guest bed and sitting room on the hillside with mountain views, private patio, the living and dining rooms have incredible views along with a well-appointed Kitchen with new appliances. The pool/spa was recently renovated with pebble tech surface and the spa is built into the large natural boulders with a running stream to the pool. On a special note at this home you may experience as we did unique wildlife, 2 long horn sheep walking the long driveway to the home also we had a Red tail hawk visiting the pool steam for water in the early mornings.

    Do yourself a favor and put this stay on your bucket list and you will be well satisfied as we were and return as we definitely will.

    A short note of interest for review readers - like most, I read reviews that go back years and of the many excellent reviews are wonderful not like one of the most recent.

    From the owner: "Thank you for staying at the Hilltop Oasis and writing such a nice review."

  • Nice house, but...


    Generally a nice house with great views. Furniture OK. Nothing "disappointing" and was mostly good.

    However, pre-arrival prep and response time to requests for help was disappointing.

    Issues upon our arrival:

    Wifi not operational

    Bedroom fan not operational

    No extra toilet paper

    Clogged toilet

    Oven not working

    Pool was dirty

    The local host was responsive to my requests for help. Eventually, she deferred me to the owner. He seemed well intentioned but was slow to respond, taking about 12 hours to get back to me. After buying a plunger and toilet paper, I resolved the bathroom issues on my own. Not all issues were reported while we were there, as we had workarounds and frankly I didn't want to spend my time coordinating with the hosts/owner while I was on vacation. When I reflect on the entire stay, all things considered it was a nice location with a great view, but I expected better for these prices.

    These types of issues are very easy to avoid with a simple pre-arrival checklist. Sure, things happen but it shouldn't be up to the guests to reverse-engineer the house to fix stuff, whoever is ultimately responsible should be responsive. Owner eventually said he had cell phone issues, maybe that's true? A two hour response time during

    daylight hours would be reasonable.

    Owners response: "David, Thank you for your comments, I'd like to address the items from your review. Upon your arrival Walk -thru Hostess tour, a review with our cleaning & pool service crews that was followed by my personal visit to the home during your rental, all showed contrary conditions to your complaint
    - We have a new hi-service wifi system with no reported failures.
    - The pool was cleaned the morning of your arrival and you were asked to call the owner if any problems did occur. We left explicit instructions by me to you in our phone call and by our walk-thru hostess to call the owner yours truly should any problems arise. We confirmed that the pool was used because there were wet pool tools left for washing.
    - The Bedroom fan was running and working fine.
    - The temporary replacement oven was on the kitchen counter.
    There was extra toilet paper in the storage cabinet as mentioned to you during the walk-thru.
    - The second and third toilets were operating close by and in our pre-check, all toilets were flushed 3 times during cleaning and operating.
    - We have our pre-planning arrival procedures, cleaning, and check-in review before and by our staff it is very thorough, written, followed, and checked, and later DOUBLE checked during our Hostess walk-thru review of the property to ensure there are no issues when guests arrive.
    - You were asked several times to call the owner and walk thru Hostess should a problem occur. We are available if needed.

    Our review history is filled with happy guests who have left 5-star reviews, I'm sure we will continue to provide our guests with the 5-star experiences we are known for."

  • Peace and Serenity


    We loved this property. The views are top notch and breathtaking. The house was well stocked with everything you need. It was near everything but yet felt so secluded. Having a hiking trail right down the driveway was special. Thank you!
