Left on 02/04/2009 for a stay in March 2008 | Tom MullenReviewed Feb 4, 2009Stayed Mar 2008
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.
