I recently stayed at this beautiful property over Presidents Weekend. Our group included three couples and three children. This house was perfect for our party and a lovely change from the Resort experience. (No getting up at 8 a.m. to claim deck chairs!) On the practical side, the house is completely equipped; we had only to bring our own food. Also, with a party of this size, personal space is important and this house provided private space for each family. Aesthetically, the mid-century decor of the house and the quiet neighborhood is just what were wanted from a Palm Springs stay. The proximity to downtown is a huge plus. Every day, we (kids and all) mounted our bikes and made our way downtown for a fantastic meal. Oh, did I mention the view of the mountains? If you stay here, I recommend taking a walk or a bike ride around the neighborhood to check out the mid-century modern architecture. As camp coordinator for this stay, I'm happy that my friends enjoyed this house as much as I did!

We drove for 10 hours to get to Palm Springs from the San Francisco Bay Area, so were in desperate need of rest and relaxation by the time we arrived at this home. The house couldn't have provided a better place for just that. We ventured out each day over the Thanksgiving break to explore the surrounds (the Living Desert, the Aerial Tram, Indian Canyon, the Tahquitz canyon and Downtown - walking distance) and returned to our own private oasis each afternoon. The kids especially loved playing in the pool and then collapsing infront of the wide screen TV in the late evening for a movie (plenty of DVD options available). The jacuzzi was perfect for sore leg muscles after long walks. The kitchen was well appointed and stocked with a lot of food, which were free to use. We cooked a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings (even though we are Australian - but thankful Australians) which we enjoyed in the dining room. There was plenty of space for 6 of us (3 kids, 3 adults) and the kids would have been entertained all day in the pool and lovely yard. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Lots of areas to stretch out and keep out of each other's way, if needed. Everything was great - lots of everything we needed (including toilet paper...often a problem for families with kids in vacation rentals). Thanks so much for the perfect place to stay and explore Palm Springs. A great place to feel the mid-century vibe and have a great break aswell. We will be back...

We just had a wonderful stay over Memorial Day weekend. The house comfortably fit 8 adults with the four bedrooms in one section and also has areas to congregate and socialize on the opposite end with doors in between so that any noise could be kept to a minimum, if necessary. The house is in a great location, just about a mile from the downtown area and close to grocery stores and coffee shops. The pool area is fantastic and has ample seating areas for guests to enjoy. We spent most of our time outside, soaking up the sun, but the dining room table was a perfect place for some card games. We are already thinking about the next time we might have the opportunity to return!

Four of us rented the house over New Years 2012. We stayed at the house three years earlier and wanted to come back. The house is large and very comfortable, with two suites that open onto the patio to give more direct access to the pool and hot tub. The other two rooms are also very comfortable, although the room with the single beds is probably better suited for children and not adults. The living room is very comfortable, and the large gas fireplace was perfect for chilly winter nights. The media room is terrific, with its own wet bar, very comfortable sectional couch and huge television -- great for watching DVDs. The kitchen is very well appointed, with lots of dishes and silverware and cooking pots. Our one concern was that the dishwasher didn't work as well as it should. It's an older model and it had difficulty handling large amounts of dishes and cookware. The pool is gorgeous and the spa easily fit four adults comfortably. We LOVE the outdoor shower, even in December! We love the location and the view of the San Jacinto mountains in the background. We had a great stay and recommend the house. The owner is very pet-friendly, too, which made it much easier for all of us with dogs.

We spent the weekend hanging out in the house - 12 women - lots of food and drink. We relaxed the entire weekend in luxury. The house was spacious and still very comfortable. We could spend time together or go find somewhere to have alone time.

This is our new "Happy Place" :)
This is our new "Happy Place" :)
We have rented several homes in Palm Springs in the past decade, and this was our first year in this house and it was a particular treat. Our group stayed for a week in April. Palm Springs itself was, of course, gorgeous and this home really allowed us to take full advantage of the amazing weather. Our first impression of this house was that it was large and had distinctive, separate areas, that there would be something for everyone there. However, it became quickly apparent that all of us were most comfortable congregating in the lanai area just outside the living room if not in the pool or jacuzzi. Our days were spent re-connecting with old friends and getting better acquainted with some newer friends in the clean desert air and warm desert sun. The whole backyard was very secluded and private, which we all appreciated. The house itself is no less than absolutely charming. The decor inside and out gives you the instant comfort that you are in a home that is warm and welcoming. It was well-equipped for that stay for our group, we just had to bring our groceries and we were set for the week. I particularly enjoyed the large den that was located on the opposite side of the house from the bedrooms. I am a bit of an insomniac and it was no problem to watch TV or listen to music in that room late at night without disturbing any of the other sleeping guests. This room even had its own entrance to the outside. This home is located very near "the strip" in downtown Palm Springs, so it is easy to take a short drive or even inexpensive cab ride into town for dining and entertainment. All the communication by email and phone, before and during our stay, was amazing. The homeowner was quick, prompt and very clear concerning communication the entire time. This was greatly appreciated. In short, we had a fabulous stay and are anxious to return. Thank you!

We took a family trip to Palm Springs, and couldn't have picked a better property to stay at than this one! Lots of space for everyone to do their own thing. The pool was terrific. The shower beside the hot tub came in very handy. Lots of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice every day from the tree out front. Location was easy to get to and fairly close to downtown and anythng else we needed. We would stay there again in a second!

Lovely vacation retreat

This was our first stay in this property but our third stay in a home owned by these owners. We enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving holiday at this home and would gladly stay here again. The home and yard are very nice and the personal touches such as enormous game, CD and DVD selection really add to the convenience & enjoyability of the property.

This house was as advertised and then some - roomy and stylish accomodations in a convenient location with panoramic views of the mountains as you wind down the day relaxing in the pool or hot tub. The open layout is centered around the huge pool area, but with 4 Bedrooms and 4 Baths, a spacious living room, kitchen, a large bonus entertainment room complete with a huge television plus wifi - there's something for everyone. This house was really a great value for the size. And if you want a change of pace there are plenty of food and shopping options just a few blocks away in downtown Palm Springs. For us, this was the perfect place to get the whole family together for a relaxing getaway from it all. Thanks so much for a great week!

From the moment we stepped inside the house, we were blown away by the view of the lanai & pool from the living room. The open layout and large windows of the living & dining rooms gave us a good idea of how spacious this house really is. There was plenty of room to fit 9 people very comfortably. The house was clean and the decor had a modern retro feel to it. The location was perfect. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and a grocery store several blocks away. The neighborhood felt very safe. Checking in & out were easy. The layout of the house was ideal. All 4 bedrooms are separated from the rest of the house which made it easy to take a nap during the day or sleep at night while others were up late. Past the dining room on the other side of the house is the well-equipped kitchen followed by a multi-use room that features the washer/dryer, a wine cooler, and a long working station area with a computer & printer. A 1/2 bath powder room is just off this room as well. At the very end of this part of the house is a large media room that boasts a huge 60" TV, bar, piano, and a very large comfy couch. Even though it was winter, we spent as much time outside as we did indoors. We used the pool, whirlpool spa & BBQ almost everyday. And we even used the fire pit one night. The lanai had a table surrounded by plenty of seating so we ate lunch in the shade & at night we lit up the candelabra for a romantic candle-lit dinner. Many of us spent a lot of time under the umbrella on the 2 huge comfy cushioned double chaise lounge chairs. The beautiful stone wall water feature nearby was a relaxing feature. On the other end of the pool was the jacuzzi & outdoor shower. The nice thing is that after rinsing ourselves off outside you walked straight into the master bath without worrying about getting the carpet wet. There is also a sliding door that leads from the master bedroom to the pool/whirlpool spa. There were an ample amount of amenities provided by the owner. There were plenty of clean towers. There was a good variety of board games and books. There's a great stereo system in the living room. There's an ipod capable alarm clock/speakers in the master bedroom. And in the 2nd master there's a CD capable sound system that was connected to the outdoor speakers. There were small TVs in each master bedroom. And there were 4 or 5 bikes with locks that we were able to use. I would highly recommend staying here. And I would definitely rent this house again.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I'm Michael Mulrooney and I purchased my Palm Springs home in 2003. I have always enjoyed the desert and the wonderful Mountain view as well as the Mid-Century architecture that Palm Springs is so noted for. I have two daughters who have helped me nurture and restore our beautiful home. We hope you enjoy it too!
Why the Owner Chose Tahquitz River Estates:
We chose to buy in the South side of Palm Springs due to the location close proximity to the Palm Springs downtown and the protection of the Mountains from the wind. The Tahquitz River Estates are unigue in design and hold true to the rich Mid-Century feel of Palm Springs in 1948
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are very close to downtown, shopping, resorts, golf courses, and hiking/biking trails.
