Sundance Villas
Reviewed 7 March 2011

My wife and I spent our honeymoon weekend in the Villa Desierto and was absolutely blown away by place. We've stayed several places before in Palm Springs, and each of them has had one or more issues that tend to dampen the experience of staying in such a great little town. We expreienced 0 issues this time. Everything inside looked brand new, and the bells and whistles in the condo were impressive, to say the least. Private spa/pool with waterfall, outdoor fountains, a private in-condo sauna, full kitchen, HD TVs in every room, a fire place, sunken shower/tub, 2 bicycles with helmets available for use, full washer/dryer, dishwasher, coffee maker......I'm telling you, the place had everything! Plus, we received a generous welcome basket that had bagels, cream cheese, jelly, and around a weeks worth of fresh fruit!

Given that we spent our wedding night there, this place has become very special to us. We CANNOT WAIT to get back and only hope that we won't have to wait long!!

An absolutely amazing weekend was spent at the Sundance Villas in Sept with my daughter and 2 friends. We stayed in the Villa con Affresco for the 2nd time and the clean , quiet, roomy Villa was everything we imagined. We certainly put the private pool and hot tub to good use ! We were only there a weekend, but managed to visit the Living Desert, Vineyards , Beach , and enjoyed the local shops and restaurants, all within easy driving distance. It was my daughters 30th birthday and even before we left , she was asking when we were coming back !And living in the frigid midwest {1 degree here this AM} we are dreaming of our next visit ! The manager ,Ginny Hahn, greeted us with a warm welcome, and made us feel totally at home. She took care of our every need and even lined us up with manicures & pedicures at a local shop. We will definately be returning - and hopefully very soon !

We have been to Sundance four times and have stayed in two of the nineteen villas. We keep returning because the villas are comfortable, clean and your privacy is guaranteed. The villas we've stayed in have private pools in an enclosed pool/patio area (see photos) so there is absolutely no concern if you want to sunbathe/skinny dip. Our villas have had one or two gas fireplaces (one of which is in the master bedroom-see photo) and, unlike some fireplaces, these can be turned up to produce large flames. When you arrive, you are given a garage door opener which gives you access to your own private garage. Once inside, you discover in your refrigerator a very nice welcome package with bagels, fruit, juices, bottled water and other snacks. Sundance is at the north end of Palm Canyon Drive so you are close to the tram and just down the street from many, many good restaurants and coffee shops. Although we've wanted to ride the tram everytime we've been there, we haven't been able to tear ourselves away from Sundance long enough to do that yet. The staff is responsive and very sensitive to protecting your privacy. The villas at Sundance are privately owned so it is not a resort but, we feel, it is a very good value if you want a place to get away for romance and relaxation.

Nice place will be back soon. The house was very clean and very nice. We enjoyed the private pool and enclosed front and back yard. Garage was very nice for the rental car. Temps during the day in Aug were 110 to 120 degrees.At night time we had high winds and cooler temps. Found good places to eat in Palm Springs area along with things to see and do. I spend many hours in the casino's while the wife did the shopping at many outlet malls. Resort in older area of Palm Spring, However, it's still very nice and private

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Sundance Villas in ‘Casa Amigos’ #10 from August 9-13, 2010. The entire experience was unmatched, even by a previous stay at a luxury resort located a short drive away in La Quinta.

We found their webpage to represent an informative and realistic view of each available villa within the resort. Making reservations was easy and the email directions were accurate. We arrived late, and even though the office was closed; the villa keys and garage door opener were left for us in a key box outside the office, clearly marked in an envelope with the reservation last name. The small map, with the route to our villa highlighted, was helpful.

When we entered into the villa, we immediately remarked positively about the private enclosed garage, not only would the vehicle be shaded from the summer heat but it would also be extra secure when not in use. Upon entry, we were impressed. As listed, the villa was a very spacious 2 bedroom with full kitchen, fire place, wet-bar, generous living/dining area, and huge big screen television. The air conditioning had been set at a comfortable temperature in anticipation of our arrival; this was a nice touch, as PS is very HOT in August!

As promised, our refrigerator contained an arrival-day "Brunch Bag" with seasonal fruit, pastries, bagels, juice and additional sweet snacks. Along with a nice welcome note from Ginny Hahn, manager.

The master bedroom and closet were huge, and the bed was incredibly comfy. The villa contained all of the dishes and utensils one might need. The microwave and dishwasher were a very welcome convenience, as no-one wants to deal with heavy cleaning on vacation. Plump and fluffy towels were provided in each bathroom, along with a nice assortment of complimentary bath products.

The secluded private pool and spa was very peaceful, well maintained with nice comfortable various deck chairs and we enjoyed preparing barbeque dinners on the gas grill, which was very easy to operate. During our stay, we did not use the free wireless hi-speed Internet, but appreciated that it was available and made note for next time. Daily housekeeping service is offered, however, as we wanted our privacy, the ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door each day, was honored.

The villa is centrally located to all major conveniences; grocery stores, 7-11, downtown village, restaurants, Aerial Tramway, and several very nice public golf courses. We particularly enjoyed our multiple golf games at Cimarron Golf Resort. We found it to be one of the best public golf facilities in the Palm Springs area. In particular, José at the front desk was welcoming, friendly, and offered us amazing advice plus discounts, gracias!

One other nice activity we enjoyed was the Village Fest; every Thursday 7:00p -10:00p June – September (Palm Canyon Drive, between Amado and Baristo) Downtown streets are closed off to traffic, and contain various art, crafts, food and jewelry stalls. It’s a good atmosphere, great for people watching and passing a few relaxing hours.

We truly stepped into another world by staying at the Sundance Villas and achieved our goal of enjoying a very nice tranquil private vacation together. This villa is a definitely a luxurious alternative, and worth every single penny. I would recommend this property to all of my family and friends.

We hope to return someday very soon, thank you very much Ginny!

The human need to retreat, refresh and renew is common to us all. Who of us has not needed to escape the rush of everyday life, to invigorate a tired soul, or renew a love? Fortunately for those of us “Type A” personality a fortress of solitude awaits. Behind a tall wall, beyond a private gate lies a garden welcoming you home, home to Palm Springs, home to Sundance.

For the past decade, whenever we needed to recover from illness, or just run away from a hectic world, we knew we would always be happy at Sundance. Imagine a private villa, sequestered away in the desert, safe in the shadow of Mount San Jacinto, equipped with every amenity your heart could desire including the most valuable quality of all, privacy!

My heart jumps just thinking about driving there on a warm afternoon, knowing that in a few moments the wonderful hospitality that is Sundance will allow me to forget all of my problems, dilemmas and woes. Soon, I’ll be lounging in my own sun-drenched private backyard, watching the tall palms sway in the breeze while contemplating an evening soaking in my private spa counting the stars while I’m wrapped in my lover’s arms, with music drifting out of my elegantly appointed villa…

I doesn’t get any better than this… the comfort of a private desert home, with the amenities of a world class hotel, minutes from downtown Palm Springs, Sundance is where you will find me should I ever go missing. Ah… Sundance, que bella!
