Private Homes, Movie Colony house description

Welcome to vacation paradise! We loved this house so much when we stayed here - we bought it! Now we're excited to share it with you...if you have stayed here before, come back and check out the upgrades! If you haven't stayed here before, what are you waiting for?

Entertain, enjoy, relax at this incredible gated architectural estate in the heart of Palm Springs...absolute privacy and contemporary luxury!

The house is approximately 3500 square feet and is located on a very private, gated, walled lot of almost 17,000 square feet. There is a large saltwater play pool and a separate saltwater spa. The huge yard has multiple patios, mature foliage and fruit trees...and it is completely private. There are no overhead power lines in the way of the mountain views.

Walls of glass with doors that open to the pool/patios offer guests the famous Palm Springs indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Flooring is white limestone, with carpet in the bedrooms. There is a built-in stereo system with an MP3/iPod hook up and integrated speakers throughout the public spaces inside and out. Dark walnut custom built-ins throughout, including custom cabinetry in the beautiful professional kitchen. There is formal dining with seating for 8. The living room features a dramatic 'fire and ice' fireplace. There's also a media room with a flat panel TV with TimeWarner Cable, HBO, SHO, and other premium channels, and a DVD player.

The master retreat is located in it's own wing behind a pivot door. The custom master bathroom has walls of glass; a freestanding tub in front of a double-sided 'fire and ice' fireplace; an over sized shower with views of the mountains, four shower heads, and a wall of copper; a 12-foot long cantilevered vanity with integrated Caesarstone sinks; and a walk-in closet. In the bedroom there is a king size bed; flat screen TV w/DVD player connected to TimeWarner Cable and a Modernica couch for lounging.

Two other large bedroom suites are located on the other side of the house, each with their own bathrooms featuring Caesarstone slab counters and limestone showers. Each bedroom has its own flat screen TV w/DVD connected to TimeWarner Cable. WiFi internet access extends throughout the property.

There is parking for 4-6 cars and/or an RV/Boat/Trailer, all behind gates. There is NO garage access.

Minutes from downtown restaurants, shops, museum, movie theaters, live theater, and casino. Two blocks from a park with tennis, basketball, and a 'fitness course.' Less than one block from Desert Hospital. Easy drive to Palm Springs International Airport and dozens of golf courses. Pets are allowed on a case by case basis with an additional security deposit. Full concierge service is available upon request.

Some comments from previous guests:

'This is - hands down - the coolest house I've ever stayed in! I'll be back!'

'Thanks so much for opening your lovely home to us...the pictures don't do it justice...'

'Wow! Your house is HUGE, the pool is FANTASTIC, the kitchen is AMAZING, and the location ROCKED. I usually stay at the Viceroy or the Parker, but never again. Did I mention, WOW?!'

'Thank you for the wonderful weekend in your stunning home...I felt like I was in a private 5-star resort!'

                            This place is so special. I absolutely love the layout which is perfect for couples looking to gather in the spacious common areas and still be able to retreat to their own private suites. It has everything you may need and then some and is close to shopping, hiking, golf, the tram, and so much more. The owners thought of every detail for their guests. Affordable, comfortable, private, luxurious. Highly recommend.

                            This home is absolutely stunning. Such a fantastic place to vacation; everything about it looks and feels so completely different from our regular home. The decor is modernly beautiful, the pool is fantastic summer or winter, and the big TV room is perfect for a movie marathon if that is your desire. Loved that all the amenities are right at your fingertips in the kitchen, and each bedroom is so grand! The beds are all huge King sized beds with so much space around them in the rooms - what a treat! The master is especially fantastic, with a bath suite that is unbelievable - huge tub, a shower the length of one wall AND a fireplace! It is the perfect get away because it feels so luxurious. As for the location, Palm Springs is MUCH more happening that the 'other desert cities" these days. This is a huge bonus to NOT be situated on a golf course in a sealed off complex identical to everything else - this is a real house on a real street in a real city. Stayed there twice; can't wait to come back.

                            Absolutely perfect property in the heart of Palm Springs. Spacious, well appointed, modern space with gourmet kitchen. Pool, spa and private outdoor seating area left nothing to be desired. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Close to hiking, shopping and all Palm Springs has to offer!

                            The first impression one has when stepping through the front door of this home is of space and light and CALM. The decor is exactly as shown in the photos; immaculate and stylishly modern without sacrificing comfort in any way. We stayed with two other couples and each appreciated having their own large bed (no "Ozzie and Harriet" rooms or trundle beds!) and ensuite bathroom. We have rented many homes in the Palm Srings area and appreciated everything about this one; the decor, amenities, location and spaciousness. We would love to return!

                            We had such a great time! The location was idea - very close to shopping and the heart of Palm Springs in a nice quiet neighborhood. I can't say enough about the house - great modern look/feel with an air of classic PS I Love You. The open living space was perfect for our party of 5 - inside and out. I was the lucky one that stayed in the master bedroom and it was fantastic - love that shower! Julie and her team could not have been more accommodating and responsive - we really didn't need any help as the house book explained it all. I recommend this home to everyone looking to visit Palm Springs.

                            Where to begin? I have rented many times on VRBO, in Palm Springs and other destinations. This rental was hands down, the nicest, most well-appointed, comfortable, private retreat I have ever been to. The pictures are great but they don't even do the place justice. It was immaculate, and every detail was thought out. The dishes, knives, appliances and kitchen construction were high quality, as were the linens, mattresses, pillows, towels etc. We could have easily moved in! The lot is large and extremely private, it is like being at a 5 star resort by yourself! Aside from dining out, we really didn't leave the house. It was so relaxing just being outdoors in the pool and spa, we never wanted to leave! Owner was also very prompt and nice to deal with. I would absolutely recommend this property, and I won't consider staying anywhere else when I return to the area!
