We enjoyed our stay for the Desert Trip festival! The home was as described in the listing. Quelinda was sweet, and wasn't in our way at all, in fact, we didn't see her beyond our first meeting the night of check in. The master bedroom had its own bathroom and the second bedroom had 2 daybeads. We enjoyed time in the front and back patios, and contacted Quelinda in order to use the pool which she responded to very quickly. We had access to the driveway for our rental car. A pitcher of lemon water was ready for us upon arrival (was a nice and needed after the long drive from LA). The view was great of the mountains. The refrigerator was available for our full use, as were condiments, pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, etc. Towels for the shower and pool were provided, as was bath soaps for our use. We didn't get to take advantage of the brunch because we departed very early, but would do so next time. Any questions we had, she responded to within minutes. I would recommend this home to others! Cozy, comfy and relaxing!

This is NOT a private home. The owner lives in one of the bedrooms and it is not separated in any way. She also entered our part of the apartment without warning...multiple times...even after being asked not to. We asked for privacy and she asked to make us brunch (in our part of the apartment). I said no 3 times and she still did it, waking us up and ignoring my wishes. If you are looking for a private apartment, this is not it. My sense at the end of this experience is that the host is not a rational person. Be aware...

Bradley, it is unfortunate you didn't READ my listing . Had you done so, it would have spared you the dissatisfaction you apparently experienced. It CLEARLY tells a potential guest I AM ON PROPERTY !!! And that I MAINTAIN THE CARE OF PROPERTY GROUNDS. However, your neurotic behavior upon arriving I could sense a need for me to be off property. Trying to address your needs , I left promptly(URL HIDDEN)must say I am a bit confused about your comments Ref: that I was on property , considering I made a deliberate point to leave that night, and not return til late t he following evening.. I prepare all guests a brunch around 9:30a.m the morning of departure unless of course, they have requested NO BRUNCH, or perhaps a different time.. Since you did neither, my natural assumption was to prepare a very pleasant brunch prior to your departure. . The welcome card that was in your room reinforced the same information that I stated to you the evening you arrived.. Noting it was a late arrival , I check my guests in and out... I am even more puzzled by how you chose to leave without any proper notice , and totally aware I was = on property. Most odd !!! Knowing the house rules re: privacy gate entrance to remain locked cat all times , it wasn't until you texted me an hour past the time you snuck out that the gate wasn't locked ! (How could it have been locked ,knowing the key to it was left on the counter as you exited.. ) I am disappointed I didn't get the opportunity to see you off, as I do all guests. What you apparently want , isn't what a HOST HOME provides... that's called hospitality, and it comes with kindness and personal service.. Should you READ and LISTEN the next time you seek a place to stay , you will be happier with your decision... Good luck to you!!! Sincerely, Quelinda

Quelinda is an amazing host. She is so welcoming and there if you need anything at anytime. The house is great very open and there is a nice relaxing backyard with a pool. I like how the kitchen is up to our disposal and had plates and everything we could use. The bed is so comfy and after a night from Stagecoach we were loving it. She makes you breakfast one of the days you are there and it was so delicious it was the perfect youth. Thanks Quelinda for being so hospitable with Chris and I we will be back soon!

My family and I really enjoyed staying at Gracious Garbino. Quelinda was very warm and hospitable! Upon arrival she greeted us and showed us around her home. It wasn't awkward at all to share the home with her; she is friendly and out wing of the house felt very private and she respects your space. My husband and I slept in the master bedroom and oh boy the bed was so comfortable I melted to sleep. On Sunday morning when we woke up there was a yummy breakfast waiting for us!! Her home is super cute and I loved how everything was presented and decorated and Cathederal City is literally minutes away from everything in Palm Springs!!! The home and the neighborhood is as described in her profile. My Family and I would and will come back!! Thanks Quelinda for a great first visit to Palm Springs!!

Hi Ashley, I am so happy you and your family enjoyed your time, and home, here at Garbino !!! I so wanted the experience to be one that you would want to do again.. You and your family were a great group to have ! Though too short of a stay, when plans allow you to return , your room will be ready. Until then, Quelinda
