In what should have been the worst time of year to visit Palm Springs (August!), my wife and I and one other couple enjoyed a quiet relaxing weekend at this condo at Sandstone Villas. The weather was perfect and so was the condo!
You can tell the complex is older, but everything had been recently refinished, such as the stucco, the pool, etc. When we entered the condo however, you could tell a lot had been done to refurbish the interior. You can always put nice furniture and art in a dumpy condo or cabin to freshen it up, but the cabinets and counters will still look old and worn. With this condo, the flooring, the tile work, as well as the counters were new looking and were an obvious upgrade from it’s original condition.
About the “quiet”! I realize that Palm Springs has smaller crowds during the peak heat times of the year, but still…this condo complex at times felt like we were the only ones there. In fact, we enjoyed the pool to ourselves the whole weekend. This truly is a great condo to stay at if you like a comfortable, quiet, slightly-off-the-beaten-path place to stay!
I would highly recommend it!!
You are just a mile or two from down-town and everything is easy to get to. If there was one down side, it was the parking…a little tight! We drove a Yukon XL and it had it’s challenges, but not a big deal.
