PROPERTY MANAGER Available 24-hours Meets you at the property Gives you a tour upon arrival Shows you how to work everything RESERVATIONS & PAYMENT We accept reservations through VRBO on-line. In order to reserve, we require 50% of the total cost of the reservation along with receipt of a completed and signed rental agreement. We are not able to hold any reservations pending receipt of funds or the contract as our properties book up very rapidly. Please be advised that VRBO processes payments through Europe and as a result, your credit card provider may charge you an international transaction fee. CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT Please be advised that our Palm Desert Vacation Rentals book up rapidly and are most often booked with a guest checking out in the morning and another guest checking in that evening. Our properties take approximately 5 hours to clean, and to wash, dry iron and replace all the linens and towels. Therefore, our check in time is 5:00 pm and our check-out time is 11:00 am. We are rarely able to offer an earlier check-in time or a later check-out time due to the rapid turn-over and cleaning requirements. If you wish to check-in prior to 5pm on the day of your arrival, the only way to guarantee an early check-in is to book the property for the prior night (assuming the property is available on that day) and then you can check in at any time after 5pm the day prior to your arrival. Likewise, if you wish to check-out after 11am, the only way to do so is to book the property for the next day as well (assuming it's available) and then you can check-out at your leisure prior to 11am the following day. Respect Our Neighbors It is our priority to make your stay at our home as peaceful and enjoyable as possible. The Desert Hawaiian Estate is located in a residential neighborhood where it is important to respect our neighbors. No outside noise is permitted after 10pm. No parking on the street. No events or parties are permitted. No additional persons permitted other than those listed in rental contract unless specifically authorized in writing by the owners. $1000-$5000 fines will be levied by the City for breaches of any by-laws. All fines plus an administration fee of $500/fine as well as any extra charges incurred will be deducted from the Damage Protection Deposit of $1000 before any refund is issued. Palm Desert Short Term Rental Permit: #04092 CANCELLATION POLICY Our Cancellation Policy is in essence as follows: if a guest cancels, we will refund up to 90% of the amount paid to date if we secure a replacement reservation. Given our high occupancy rates, we have provided significant refunds (90%) to the few guests who have had to cancel. No refunds of VRBO fees are provided.

4/5 Good

Great stay!
Had a great time at this house! Pool decking is a little rough for the kids, but otherwise a great set up for a group week away.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Property
We had a family of 12 - birthday celebration (ages 10-75). The home and property is absolutely gorgeous. The large pool and hot tub was amazing ! Outside furniture was wonderful. Loved the closet full of towels and the 2 sets of laundry machines. The outside heaters by the table/bbq area was a great bonus as the weather was on the cool side for the 5 days we stayed. We hired a chef for a dinner and he had a lot of space to meal prep and cook. The kitchen was fabulous. 2 dishwashers made a difference ! Lots of seating at island and oval table for 12 of us. We were going to use the pool table as a table (as shown in the listing) but there were only 2 red chairs to use. Couldn’t see any extras or where the wood would lay to make it level for table use. The bedrooms were very nice sizes and we loved having french doors to pool. The rec room was so cozy and comfortable. We played games and hung out there. Such comfy furniture!!! The yard, BBQ, Entire setting was breathtaking. Very private. The fire pit with seating around it was lovely. We all loved this property. Speaking to all my family the only complaint was the sandstone outside back pool area. It was cracking and we all had tiny stone slivers/cuts from the cracking of stone. But the beauty of the house and property trumps this. Thank you to Joe who was very thorough in showing us the house.

5/5 Excellent

Guys Golf Trip
We had a fantastic time staying in three of Craig and Tracey’s homes in Palm Desert. All three were close to El Paseo, many restaurants and Albertsons is within two miles of all three homes. Their property manager, Joe Karas, was great to work with and met us at each house to take us through the details. Desert Hawaiian was the perfect gathering place for “team” meals, post golf cards and pool time. All the guys raved about the cleanliness of the houses, the heated pools and spas and outdoor amenities. Thanks for making our week in the desert so enjoyable.

5/5 Excellent

Paradise in Palm Desert
We had a pre-Thanksgiving family reunion at this luxury property. It had everything we could possibly want from a pool table, foos ball, hot tub, pool, doll house, and an amazing kitchen. We didn’t see much need to leave the property. Everyone had a wonderful time from the very young to the very old. We chose it because the listing said we could walk to El Paseo. That turned out to be not quite true but we had a good time anyway. I would recommend highly for families. Thank you Craig and Tracey.

5/5 Excellent

Great hosts, great house!
Joe was very thorough and welcoming. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended, especially if you have kids. Lots of room to run and play! The playhouse was a hit!
