An absolutely wonderful stay
An absolutely wonderful stay
The other two reviews are spot on. The house is a complete charmer, and the photos don't do it justice! I was very glad to find the property since our party consisted of just 4 people and we didn't want to spend money on bedrooms we didn't need (and we had our dog with us). The house was spotless and beautifully decorated. It was also fully stocked with everything you'd ever need--even items like tupperware, which was VERY useful for the wonderful picnic we had on San Jacinto. The housekeeper, Dee Dee, met us at the property and very helpfully explained the details of the house to us. The owner, Mike, was very responsive, a great communicator and has great taste! You can also tell that he really put a lot of care into the house. It was very nice to work directly with an owner instead of a management company. I received my security deposit back right away without any extra prompting. The house has a location with easy access to everything you'd need in Palm Springs. Our dog loved the place, too. There's even a doggy door to the backyard! Our pup had never used one before, though, so he was a bit confused by it. We had a great stay and were very sad to leave. Any small groups traveling together or those with a dog can't go wrong with this property. Thanks, Mike!

Owner response: Hi Debra. Thank you for such a kind review. I appreciate your comment about not going through a management agency. We decided not to use an agency when we first started renting out our home. We think it's important to have a personal connection with our guests. We can make them feel much more at home and do a better job of meeting their needs, than any agency. Besides, I think we attract a better quality of guests this way (like yourself!). We have lots of return guests, which we always love to see coming back. I hope you'll be one of our return guests real soon! --Mike
I couldn't agree with Andrea more. The house was spotless and wonderfully appointed. It is stocked with every item you could possibly need and more. Mike has thought of every last detail..including 5 star quality towels! The house is perfect for dogs or for travelers without dogs because there is not a trace of dog smell or dog hair in the house. The location is terrific - near Palm Springs restaurants, Starbucks, Ralphs, and a running path. It was heavenly just relaxing in the pool and enjoying the afternoon in the sun with my dog. We so thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back as often as we can make it. I am so happy we found this gem. Thanks again, Mike!

Owner response: Thanks for such a nice review, Kalley. I'm so glad you and your doggies had a comfortable, relaxing stay at "Casita Primrose." We would love to have you back anytime! Thanks for the compliments about the cleanliness and amenities. All the credit has to go to our great housekeeper, Dee Dee. She's really more like a concierge. She helps greet guests at check-in, and she's always just a phone call away to answer any questions or provide anything our guests need. We're very fortunate to have her to take such good care of our home and our visitors. Come back soon!
Great little cute house!
Great little cute house!
This place is spotless. You can see the owner, Mike, treat it like it is his baby. Every detail in the house has good taste and quality. Super clean and comfy and dog friendly. I think the photos don't do justice, I was glad to be surprise with such a cute little house. I was a bridesmaid in a wedding that weekend and traveled from L.A. with my husband, 8 month old baby, our dog and mother in law, this place was perfect and I wished I had more time to enjoy it since I was part of the wedding party I didn't hang out as much as Id like to. Thanks Mike and DeeDee for the hospitality! Will definitely stay here again in Palm Springs.

Owner response: Thanks for the kind remarks, Andrea. I'm glad you liked our little "casita." You're right, we love dogs. We pretty much built the backyard and pool for our golden retriever, Lucky. Thanks for the comments about the VRBO photos. We've updated the house quite a bit since I took those--new flooring, new furniture, updated landscaping. I really need to post new pics when I can get around to it. Come back soon--your whole family (including the dog!) is welcomed any time.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We moved to Palms Springs to escape Los Angeles 6 years ago. Unfortunately, our careers soon took us elsewhere. But we couldn't completely pull up roots from this wonderful place, so we bought this Casita as our little Palm Springs get-away. We are NOT professional vacation rental landlords; this is our own home which we're sharing with others when we don't use it. We hope you'll feel as much at home here as we do, and will love Palm Springs as much as we miss it!
Why the Owner Chose Warm Sands:
Casita Primrose is located in the historic neighborhood of Warm Sands, one of the first residential areas of old Palm Springs--where you can still see the original vacation homes of Walt Disney, Amos and Andy, and even Al Capone! It's fascinating to walk or bike around the neighborhood and look at the mix of old Spanish style haciendas and architectural mid-century classics. Casita Primrose is ideally located close to all the vacation activities Palm Springs is famous for. Take a half-mile walk or bike ride to Palm Springs village with its fine restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and the new Aqua Caliente casino. Walk two blocks to a lush green park, the public library, our favorite family-run bakery and sandwich shop, a half dozen ethnic restaurants and cafes, a major drugstore, supermarket, Starbucks, and fast food places. You're two blocks from the major highway to the rest of Coachella Valley and the excellent restaurants, golf courses, and high-end shopping of Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert. Finally, if you fly in, you're only 5 minutes from the airport.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can't imagine a place that's so tranquil and quiet and yet surrounded by so much to do! Our favorite activity is sitting out in the secluded backyard enjoying the fresh air and mountain view and playing in the pool with our Golden Retriever (did we mention the property is very pet-friendly?). You'll also love how much there is to do within walking or biking distance. Explore the neighborhood, with its mix of old classic Spanish and mid-century homes, or walk 3 blocks to the Tahquitz Creek riverbed, where you can let your dog off-leash and hike all the way up to the mountains. Or bike downtown for lunch and a movie, or gallery shopping or playing at the casino. If you feel adventurous, take the spectacular tram ride to the top of the mountain, or visit the zoo and ecological preserve in Palm Desert, or shop at the huge factory outlet mall-- all within an easy, traffic-free 15 to 30 minute drive.
