                            We stayed at the butterfly house during the Tour de Palm Springs annual bike ride. Our group was four couples and three children. The house was very comfortable and had all the amenities we could have hoped for. It came with a pack-and-play and high-chair, which is always appreciated. The kitchen was well-stocked and beautifully designed. We stayed in the back casita, which was luxurious and felt like a suite during our honeymoon. The big garage was especially nice for our bikes and gear in preparation for the ride. The location is walkable to all the stores and restaurants you could want, so we took numerous strolls into town without having to use our cars. We would highly recommend the house to anyone interested in having a relaxing weekend in PS. The only downsides were the landscapers, pool workers and housecleaners- they all came during our stay and were a bit disruptive. The landscapers used loud machines in the middle of the day, which affected our pool experience for about 2 hours on Friday. Then, the pool lady came the same day and told us we needed to leave the pool while she worked. The housecleaners came at 9:30am on our last day- an hour before we were supposed to be gone. This impacted our ability to have a relaxing check-out. These are just things that could likely be worked out with some better pre-scheduling. All and all, we had a fantastic time and loved the house!

                            I always come to Palm Springs for my birthday weekend every year with a large group of friends and have stayed at various hotels throughout the past. We finally got smart and all came together to rent a house and found that we saved so much money food dining out at restaurants, as well as crazy pool bar tabs. Michaels home is so well appointed and relaxing and conducive to entertaining that we never left the house! The home itself stayed incredibly cool on 100 degree days with minimal A/C which I am not a fan of. Each guest raved about the comfort of their beds as well as the amazing pool we stayed in from morning until night. The location the best if your not familiar with Palm Springs as you can walk to everything from the house. Can't wait to come back next year but am hopeful it may be even sooner as now all my friends are "in the know" and have plans to stay here as well in the near future. Thank you !!!

                            We had awesome experience at the Butterfly Home. We had rented the house for a designer off-site for some pre-season color work and wanted to have the atmosphere and energy of Palm Springs and the California desert influence the palette. Done! The home and accommodations were effortless and better than we could have anticipated. Beautiful kitchen, living and bed rooms. Plenty of space, and yet very intimate. The pool and the water and the light outside was beautiful, and the architecture, color and design was a perfect Palm Springs vibe. We took an excellent modern architecture tour with Robert Imber while on our trip, which I'd highly recommend. He was delightful and a true passionate expert on mid-century architecture and Palm Springs - we even learned a little about our Butterfly Home! Great place. Great trip. Would come back in a heartbeat!

                            thank you very much for one of the best vacation homes i ever been to. me and my wife have rented many homes during our travels from VRBO, and this one is the king of the hill. We had a two other couples stay with us for a long weekend of golf and great eats. And this place has the perfect location, right accross from the Viceroy hotel. Had dinner and drinks there and walked back home. The backyard and kitchen are a cooks dream. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a great Palm Springs experience.

                            House was amazing and exactly as shown in photos. Location was perfect for walking into town and we did not have to drive once. Plenty of room and guest house was perfect and felt private from home. Amazing infinity edge pool and spa. Would recommend to friends who appreciate mid-century architecture and beautiful setting close to the mountains. Planning a second trip back in Spring!

                            The Butterfly Home made our memories of Palms Springs an unforgettable one. From the booking to check in to checking out. Working with Michael was a pleasure and I would definitely do it again. Here are the things we loved about the Butterfly House: 1. Aesthetically Pleasing - no expenses spared when they remodeled and furnished this house. 2. Comfortable - comfortably sleeps and accommodates a party of 8 people still allowing privacy. 3. Location - Prime spot and walking distance to the strip and most bars and restaurants. 4. Well Maintained - everything is in tip-top-shape and all appliances in great working condition. 5. No hidden fees - The flat rate includes everything (tax, cleaning, etc.) 6. Some place to call home - Most of the time we never wanted to leave. I've heard too many horror stories of vacation homes where the ac/heat doesn't work, no propane, pool/spa heat not working, etc. It was a relief to find nothing bad to say about the rental. Thanks Michael and you'll be hearing from me soon!

                            Came to Palm Springs with another couple for a long weekend not really knowing what to expect. The house is in a great location, 15 minute drive from the airport, walking distance to downtown Palm Springs, restaurants, shops, spa, tennis. Beautiful home set against the San Jacinto Mountains that feel like they are growing straight up from the beautiful back yard. Perfect for two to three couples, extended families, guys golf weekends, girls getaways. We stayed in main house, friends stayed very comfortably in guest house (all amenities). . Because of the separate guest house there is plenty of privacy. Spent many hours lounging by the pool and spa. Love the shallow pool area where you could sit comfortably in about an inch of water. Grounds are immaculate and well designed. Gas BBQ outside. Everything is clean and well maintained, which even surpassed my wife's standards. Main house and guest house well appointed with modern fixtures and appliances. Large master bedroom (big screen), two good size guest bedrooms in main house. Large great room area with a stocked cook's kitchen, great glassware, big screen TV with Satellite. Garage to store car and golf clubs. Separate laundry facilities. Indian Wells Golf about 15 minutes south, well manicured, reasonable and interesting course, some great hiking also 15 minutes south. I could have easily stayed a week. Margs, chips and salsa, cheese and crackers, champagne and beer. Someone grab me another. Great place, great time.

                            Just spent my birthday weekend here with 3 other couples and had such a fabulous time! It was so hot we didnt even leave the house, which is just what we wanted - relax and do absolutely nothing. Perfect lounge! This home really has all the amenities you need. The backyard of this home is definitely my fave!

                            Just stayed at the house for the 2nd time in 10 months. We rented it for Thanksgiving in 2010 and fell in love. I wanted to celebrate my 40th birthday in Palm Springs and couldn't wait to stay there again. It was perfect for throwing a party and we had a wonderful time. We stayed for 4 days and am I already planning our next visit! The house is beautifully decorated and maintained. It's walking distance to downtown Palm Springs, restaurants, shops, and bars. I honestly cant think of a better home to stay in when you are in town. I hope one day I can convince the owners to sell it to us! LOL!!

                            After seven friends and myself stayed at this beautiful home, we just had to make sure and write a review! Without a doubt we recommend this home for the perfect Girls Get Away. Once a year we have a get away and usually stay at casino hotels, but opted a rental instead. This Butterfly home was all we needed it to be. The Casino, clubs and dancing were close enough for some to go,and some just styaed and enjoyed the relaxation that the home offers.It was voted, unanimous, that we would return next year...if not sooner. Definitely recommend for anyone to go and stay, but based on personal experience this one time, a Girls weekend definitely.
