Booked six days here as part of a family vacation.
Lovely, quiet campus easy walking distance from the busyness of Palm Springs downtown.
Beautifully appointed and equipped apartment ( in fact I was a bit worried - I have teenagers, something was BOUND to get scuffed or bust ! fortunately not though ! :D )with every convenience.
Comfy bed, very comfy sofa bed for the kids.
We had some bad luck regarding some roadbuilding right outside the apartment while we were there but thats hardly the fault of the owners.
Highly recommended to anyone wanted peace and civility in Palm Springs.

I would wait until the construction project on the adjacent lot was completed before returning to this complex. The condo was nicely equipped for a long stay.
Great property, Ideal for walking into Town

We were visiting california for the second time from our home in Aberdeen,Scotland.
We spent two fantastic weeks at the Villa Hermosa. We wanted a property that was well furnished to a high standard, was within walking distance to downtown Palm Springs and within easy reach of the main highways. This ticked all the boxes.
We spent the mornings walking the canyons; an easy 5 minute drive and each one so different. The afternoon was spent by the pool..usually just the two of us.
In the evening we played tennis at an excellent and friendly public park very close to the apartment. We would then walk downtown for an evening drink or a meal although we ate in fairly regularly and the kitchen is very well appointed for this.
We definitely intend coming back here.. We'd definitely recommend this apartment to couples. I have nothing negative to say about this apartment. One of the best, most relaxing holidays we have had.

I love this condo, I will be very upset if I don't get it again for Coachellea. I may have to kick you out if you get it. I'm not kidding.
Good Times in Palm Springs
