The home was everything we had hoped for. We were a large group of 3 generations and finding a home to accommodate all of us was our first priority. The amenities took the experience to an even higher level of fun and entertainment. Lenny was very accommodating, especially when there were glitches with the electricity, a/c and mister when we first arrived. Most everything was up and running smoothly within 24 hours. I would like to suggest that manuals or step-by-step instructions for the TV/Cable and sound system would have been helpful. We were really bummed about the Theater System not working as we had activities planned for the little kids. All and all, our stay was wonderful and we look forward to a return visit next year.

Fantistic family holday look forward to next visit Ranch employee,Lenny, most helpful & personable and took care of all situations immediately. Constructive suggestions..1 The rooms with bunks..lighting is terrible,suggest replacing the ceiling light,install reading lights over bunks, or a table lamp&light; over sink. king bedded room next door, it is a queen matress cover which should be king,uncomfortable getting out of bed..New pillow perhaps? In master suite, no voering on window over tub..passer-by can look in. Phone out of order on arrival(holiday weekend in US)& not connected until Tues, again out of service Thurs nite til our departure on Sat. Lenny tried to get them to come.we had to use our cells..Grounds, pool all well maintained We were impressed.One of most wonderful holidays Will come back.Thanks to Lenny & you. Read more

This house was perfect for the 16 members of our family during my son's wedding in Indio. There was plenty of sitting room inside and out when we all wanted to sit down, and the landscaping and pool area felt like we were in Hawaii with all of the waterfalls! Lenny the caretaker was fabulous with calls for anything that we forgot to ask. It was fantastic having the 2 bedroom casita separate from the house too. The only drawback was it was football homecoming at the high school right next door so we could not have the rehearsal dinner on the property. Also, you need to keep your cars in the garage as the baseball field popped several balls over the fence. We will definitely come back again as it was a oasis in the desert!

We enjoyed our family reunion at the CTR ranch, however, the kitchen needs to be attended to. The appliances were great however, there were no serving bowls and the silverware was sparse. The furniture and linens could also be upgraded. The pool was awesome
and Lenny the caretaker was helpful and right their when we needed him.

We had a very fun time at the CTR ranch. The property was perfect for our 13 women..plenty of rooms/beds that were comfortable and clean. We lived in the large beautiful pool and enjoyed the view of the lake. The ranch hand on site 'Lenny' was so helpful and patient; all the women adored him. Our only problem was not enough supplies in the wine glasses, no large bowls...always found ourselves hunting when it was cooking time. Also the patio table outside was very wobbly and that became a bit annoying because 90% of our time was spent at that table. We will go back though... Read more

We noticed that there was maintaince occuring during our stay and wish that all maintaince be completed before rented so that the guests are not disturbed with strangers on the property each day. Too many Fire Ants around the Jacuzzi. We all suffered bites when enjoying the jacuzzi. Other then that we had a wonderful stay! Read more

Great Family Vacation

We felt like celebrities staying at this beautiful property! The pool was as glorious as it appears in all pictures! Lenny, the caretaker was super attentive to our needs! We had such a great time with plenty of room for the 18 of us! I wish the misters would have been working for the hot days and the dishwashers in the kitchen need some attention. It took almost 35 minutes to make a pot of coffee in the machine provided but in no way did these little things detract from our vacation. We would definitely stay here again!!! Read more

My friend and I had a joint bday with a large group of friends and really had an incredible time because the house was amazing (pictures don't do it justice). The only downside is the backyard view which is not great, but shouldn't be a big deal. First, the property manager met us when we arrived and got us settled in and showed us how everything worked. The pool lights went out on our second night and he was very helpful over the phone for 30 minutes (we couldn't fix it, but service was great). Tammi from DLV was very nice about it and gave us a late check out, which worked out great. Everything about the house was just what we needed for our 30th bdays. Thanks CTR Ranch!
Overall our stay at the CTR Ranch was very enjoyable and both th

Some Problems w/ the house: toilets not all functioning properly, stereo system in main tv room not operational, floor throughout are grimy and dirty (all our feet were black), kitchen equipment is old and incomplete, and kitchen sink garbage disposal leaking. It is a beautifully designed home, just not in an ideal location w/ paintball facility and football stadium closeby. Read more

Adams Annual Guys Golf Outing
Left on 10/15/2010 for a stay in October 2010 | ruk a.
Property was beautiful, spacious, and very convenient. Pool was spectacular. Overall incredibly comfortable place for a large group.
Only three issues, two small and one a bit more significant. Kitchen could really use an upgrade on pots, pans, utensils, serving bowls, etc. Also the stove stopped working and did no one came to fix. Bigger issue was that we were told there were three complete beds in the garage that could be placed in the other rooms for added bedding. In fact there was a queen and a single mattress. Ended up with a couple of people sleeping on couches instead of beds. Would have been better to have known the reality of the bed situation so we could have planned accordingly.
Even with these issues the property was a 9 to 9.5 out of 10 experience.
