“Nice and clean with excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

We recently went to Palm Springs and stayed at "Sundance Villas" while the kids went to Coachella music festival. The rooms were clean, the service was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful.
The welcome basket was also nice touch.
I highly recommend it.

We stayed in Blue skies at Sundance Villas from 26th March to 4th April and were very sorry when the time came to leave. We had been to the Conchella Valley on 2 previous occasions but this was the first time at Sundance Villas.

The villa was really nice - not entirely to our decorative taste but it was clean and bright and had everything we needed PLUS 10 days of wall to wall sunshine and fantastic temperatures. The communal pool was fabulous, probably helped because for most of our stay we had it to ourselves. Great restaurants and food shops locally and in the desert communities so we were really spoilt for choice. Bar-B-Qued on 2 evenings ( you can't do that in the UK in April - or any other time come to think of it !!) and had lemonade made from the lemons on the neighbours tree ( which they kindly gave us). Really good - and the room service staff and guys in the office were great - they didn't bother us with anything, but if we needed anything it was there. We will go again. Recommended.

Room Tip: Blue Skies was very nice but having asked to see a couple of the other villas - they are all a good...

Not quite able to afford our own private island, this oasis in the urban sprawl of Palm Springs was a very good alternative. Needing a get-away, we booked two weeks in the Shang-ri La villa, Sundance Villas, not knowing what to really expect. Everything exceeded our expectations, from the very comfortable bed, to the privacy and ambience of the complex which included a large central pool and tennis courts .The two bedroom, three bathroom villa was very spacious and well appointed (though I did have to resort to the thrift shops to find a real teapot, but, hey, that just gave me an excuse to leave our sanctuary and explore possibly the most interesting attractions in greater Palm Springs). The villas could just rely on their uniqueness alone in that each has its own entirely private garden with plunge pool and hot tub. Did I say private, yes, THAT private. So the attention to details, full amenities, and on-site attentive management (putting in a better dishwasher when we mentioned we had to rewash dishes) certainly made this a very special holiday for this senior couple. Will we back, yes, to celebrate a milestone anniversary.

Room Tip: Vilas on the west side will lose sun on their private garden and pool first; good in hot months, not...

Thank you so much for your lovely review of your stay at Shangri-La in the Sundance Villas' private community. We have forwarded your kind words to the villa owners who live on the east coast. They are so pleased you were able to enjoy their sunny home while they were stuck in their offices.

We so enjoyed meeting you; such a great couple. I could have taken a day off to hike with you and the new friends you have made on our beautiful desert trails. It is so much fun for us locals to meet and chat with International visitors hiking our canyon trails in the winter and spring and the forest trails at the top of the P.S. Aerial Tramway in the summer and fall. You allow us to see our 'home' through your eyes and remind us how very fortunate we are to live in Palm Springs year 'round.

You were perfect guests, and we truly hope you will return for many more special celebrations.
We apologize for the proper teapot oversight and thank you for leaving your lovely purchase behind for other guests to enjoy.

Enjoy your summer in your beautiful Canadian home or wherever your travels take you.

Best wishes for good health and happy trails to you

Until we meet again,

Ginny Hahn

I recently visited Palm Springs for the first time and chose 'Sundance Villas' as my first destination. When we arrived, everything was in order: music softly playing, lights dimly lit, etc. The home looked lovely and there was even a nice welcome basket waiting the the refrigerator! The home was nicely stocked with all the amenities one would need in a home away from home. To be perfectly honest, the main reason for choosing Sundance is the privacy & private pool for dipping, so I don't pay as much merit to other details some other travelers may find as must-haves. Overall the experience was an enjoyable one, if I were looking for a few things which could be improved upon I would say the home I stayed in had some minor maintenance issues that really should be addressed; and the house cleaning was lackluster to say the least. The 'house cleaner' only delivers fresh towels and pulled up the bed, no thoughtful effort was put into any other type of cleaning while I was there - AND the house cleaner didn't even show up on the last day! I did enjoy the peace and quiet and would stay here again in the future if I am ever in Palm Springs!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. Your comments are most helpful, from a management standpoint, because it alerts us to weaknesses and oversights. If you have not already done so, would you mind sending me an email to: privatevillamanagement@gmail.com, listing the villa name and the items needing attention.
We are in the process of "spring" cleaning and want to make sure we take care of everything.
Happy to know, overall, you enjoyed your stay, and we truly hope you will choose a Sundance Villas
vacation rental next time you plan a trip to Palm Springs. Most sincerely, Ginny Hahn

We enjoy the stay at Sundance Villas. We had rented Villa de Paz which was wonderfully appointed with an exceptional lounge with doors leading to the private pool. The main pool in the complex was a good place to relax and cool off during the heat of the day. The private garden had a good view of the nearby mountains. Thank you very much Ginny for our wonderful stay at Sundance.

The owners of Villa de Paz will be thrilled to read your review of their lovely villa, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your very nice comments. Each rental at Sundance Villas is someone's private vacation home, and the owners here are very concerned with their guests' comfort and enjoyment. We are thrilled you traveled from Northern Ireland to Palm Springs and left with such happy memories of your stay at Sundance Villas.
Perhaps one day we will meet again, in our desert paradise or your lush Emerald Isle.

Thank you, again! Ginny Hahn

Of all the many properties I have stayed in Palm Springs, Sundance Villa's are simply the finest accomodations to be found. Each private home is nicely appointed, fully furnished with everything you need but your clothes and swim suits. The grounds are well maintained and the unit I stayed in was simply perfect. Your own private pool and spa and the only sound you will hear is the birds. Each unit comes with a private enclosed garage, some with washer and dryers and my Villa had a nice collection of music, movies, and books and all of the kitchen items you need. Ginny who runs the place is simply the best and once you arrive you won't want to leave. For the money, you will never find a better place to stay...and you probably won't want to leave. I highly recommend Sundance Villa's to anyone travelling alone, with someone or a family. The units are spacious, clean, and comfortable and I know I will become a regular here to get away from the nose of Los Angeles. Thank you Ginny and company for a delightful stay. This is indeed the best weekend get-away or long term stay-cation in all of the desert!

Room Tip: All units have total privacy with 6 foot walls. AC works great.

Thank you for your thoughtful review of your stay in one of the Sundance Villas' private homes. I believe you are the nice gentleman who was a former guest of La Mancha, so it is gratifying to know you found us through the gracious referral of that property's former owner, Ken Irwin.
Really enjoyed chatting and hearing your musical background and knowledge of the early years of Palm Springs and Hollywood. It was a pleasure having you as our guest, and we hope you will remember us when your travels bring you back to the desert. Most sincerely, Ginny Hahn

Sundance Villas is the most relaxing and perfect destination.
The villas are always spotless and the pool and gardens likewise.
The ladies who run the villa management are the absolute model of coutesy and efficiency and nothing is too much trouble.
It doesn't matter how often you come here you will always want to come back I doubt that there is anywhere to equal the quiet and privacy anywhere at this price.

Thank you so much for your kind words about your stay in a Sundance Villas private home. We appreciate your choosing our private pool vacation villas year after year, especially considering all the wonderful properties Palm Springs has to offer.
The private owners at Sundance Villas who offer their villas to you know how special it is to float in their own secluded pools and are thrilled when they hear their guests share their love of this very special property.
Thanks, again, and we look forward to your next trip west!
