We have stayed in many different hotels over the years in Palm Springs, but this experience was our favorite. The rental agency people were all easy to work with from the first contact to checking out. We would like to see the slats replaced in the bed, they are a bit too small and therefore, have a tenency to fall through. This is our only complaint, and we had read about this particular issue prior. Obviously considerable thought has been given to guests needs and so it is somewhat surprising that this has not been dealt with as yet. That said, we still give this an excellent rating and look forward to our return.
Viva Villa Hermosa!

Villa Hermosa is a hotel turned condo by the famed albert Fray. Unit #28 has 2 wonderful patios , one perfect for breakfast , the other for the afternoon. The location is great , a short walk to Koffi and Trio and you're set. Excellent use of space as the sq is quiet small. Very comfortable bed , and many seating and eating options. The pool and spa were very comfortably heated and private.The only small complaint is that there wasn't WiFi or long distance calling which is standard in most rentals.
"Terrific views, great location, well appointed and dressed."

Palm Springs Rental through their concierge service ensured a great beginning to our vacation stocking the larder and collecting My Gray from the airport.
The appartment is wonerfully located on the first floor with no adjoined neighbours provides stunning views of the mountains from the western deck and a deck to the east is great for relaxed mornings.
The main room being of a good size with many windows and views of the mountains the pool and Villa's Hermosa.
A little disapointed by the decor being a little too fussy and overdecorated, also the bed slats collapsed on a daily basis. May I suggest a bed a little bigger with no wooden surround and a more substantial base. I was also disaponted that despite being promised a telephone giving free long distance calls, failed to provide long distance calls for the last week despite several calls to Palm Springs Rental.
These small points prevent me from making this a highly recomended recomendation, because overall we had a wonderful stay in this rental.

We spent 12 great days at 28 Villa Hermosa. The Condo was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for the stay. Everything was spotlessly clean and organised. We had 2 balconies which insured we caught the sun throughout the day. The pool area was well kept and a pleasure to use. Our only critism was that the apartment was a little over decorated with distinctive taste,too many vases and lamps for a rental!
The rental process was flawless. To conclude we would happily stay here again.
