BNB Paribas Ladies Tennis Trip! Great time!!!
The house is near perfect! Spent 6 nights here with 5 friends. The location is maybe 3 minutes from the airport. No one noticed any plane noise. This new community is gated and feels very safe. Quick 5-10 min Uber drive to downtown Palm Springs for dinner or going out. (About a 35 min easy drive to Indian Wells for the tournament.)
Inside, beautiful furniture, cool art, books & magazines, large cable TV's and fast Wifi. Super cool sliding glass wall opens to outside pool/spa and lounging deck. Nice linens in all bath/bedrooms, convenient well stocked kitchen setup, high end appliances w/double ovens, etc, and even basic condiments including coffee/tea/sugar. The pantry even had some dog treats (but we didn't have a dog). A/C system worked well.
At night the house was very quiet and the beds were comfortable. The separate Casita/Guest house was a bonus (think snoring friend!). The pool and spa worked well and heated up really fast. The outdoor grill was great as well. The laundry room was huge & included soap which was a nice touch. We did wash tennis clothes!
The property manager, Peter, is a doll. He met us at the house...was waiting there upon our arrival. He walked us though all the house systems and made us feel very welcome. He came back the next day to help with the TV cable box setup...Tennis Channel was a must and we were 'impaired' in finding the correct setting. He even stayed to skim the leaves out of the pool before he left.
Uncontrollable drawback - the neighborhood is still under construction and somewhat messy. That will resolve itself over time. Sadly, No tennis courts in the neighborhood. To nit-pick, one in our group said the Casita bathroom could use more towel hooks. We also wanted 2 more regular dining chairs for the dining table...there are only 4 and we were 6 in our group. It would be perfect if the house had a fire pit. We all agreed we want to come back next year! Everyone had a fabulous time. Just hope it's not rented out!
