Classy and comfortable clothing-optional resort
This resort is beautiful and low-key ideal for the gay traveller who might want a clothing-optional resort in a less sexually-charged atmosphere. The atmosphere is friendly and tasteful. They offer special pet accommodations: The Pueblo room includes a fenced side yard for you pet's enjoyment.

      My new Palm Springs Get Away
      I just spent a few days and loved it. The owners were great and made me feel at home. They took me to my room and showed me around the property. Most places just give you the keys and leave you alone. The suite was immaculate and the bed comfy. The photos don't do the place justice. I'm going back for my birthday.

      Very disappointing
      Room was shabby and needed upkeep (leaky faucet, smoke alarm dangling, sofa torn, etc.). Grounds very nice. Private patio cool and place to enjoy a cigar. Most guys friendly. Owners ok but somewhat distant. I wouldn't return.

      Low Key and Loving It
      Stayed for a weekend, but wanted to stay longer. The rooms are very clean, the grounds are nice (we used lemons from the trees to make lemon drop martinis), and the living-on-site hosts are wonderful. Clothing optional, some sexual energy, but not a bath house by any stretch.

      Bootstrapped and Languid!
      This is a cute little place -- on the quieter side and mostly older guys. The owners have 're-done' the place themselves - Kudos! -- but, while the rooms are very pleasant and the "Desert Deluexe" them is nice, a lot of the grounds would profit from a little bit -- let's see -- a makeover makeover... I mean, taking the stuff and 'arranging' it so that it was more styled and less kitchy would help a lot! Some paint on the privacy screens around the pool would be nice -- Simplify! Simplify! While it is pleasant, it doesn't seem like it would be a huge stretch to make it NICE! I'm just sayin....
