Firstly, Sergio at Vacation Palm Springs was speedy and thorough when answering all my questions on line before we arrived.
Driving up through the gates into the Curtis Estate, we were all really impressed.
There were 9 of us there for a hen's weekend so there was plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for our group. Love the layout of the house and the decor, especially all the old Hollywood photos. Pool and spa were heavenly (they needed to be heated, especially in the evening).
Spacious kitchen, chock-full with all the cooking supplies we needed. Only problem was with the leaky dishwasher.
Had such an amazing experience, that we're planning on going back with our husbands later this year!

Our family and friends loved this house. It was great that it had some hollywood history to go along with it. We will definitely do it again next year, if not sooner. The only negative would be that landscapers and pool people showed up unannounced and just walked into the backyard. They were very nice, just a surprise.
