ReviewsWrite a review
I have nothing but glowing reviews of this home. Myself and 5 other girlfriends stayed here for 5 days. The home is spectacular, the pool and deck perfect for long hours in the sun and cool desert evening with indoor outdoor living. Tom the owner, and Tom his friend who was there to greet and orientate us upon our arrival were so friendly and easy to work with. Toms responsiveness during the whole process prior to our trip and after we're so quick and easy. We hope to stay at his home again. The location for this home is within walking distance of downtown ( a mile walk or 2 ) which we did several times, with great restaurants and some nightlife and shopping. It's super close to grocery stores and the airport. Neighborhood is quiet. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone .

Best place we have stayed at in Palm Springs
Best place we have stayed at in Palm Springs
My wife and I are regular renters in the Palm Springs area. We generally rent 3 to 4 times per year. Tom's place ranks at the very top. The backyard and pool area are spectacular. We love the grass for our dog, lots of shade. The landscaping with the beautiful wind chimes are wonderful to look at while laying out at the pool. Watching the sun go down behind the mountains while sipping our favorite glass of wine highlighted our evenings. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen has everything you need to put together a wonderful dinner. TV's are located in every room including the kitchen, you need those during football season. There is a great barbeque area in the back with lights over the grill, which makes it very nice to barbeque. Each room has it's own bathroom. The Master bedroom is located on one side of the house and is separate from the other two rooms. Which is fantastic, when guests are over, because we are early risers. Truly an amazing house, we will definitely be back.

We planned a relaxing weekend away for my mother's 50th birthday. The house was perfect. Everything you read in the reviews and description is true. Tom was great to work with and so understanding. The house is a gorgeous and decorated very well. The things that stick out in my mind from the weekend was the house wide/outside sound system, newly renovated bathrooms, and the pool area was very private and lots of places to lounge.

We had a terrific time during our week at the house. The decor is lovely and the house is well appointed. We spent a great deal of time at the pool. The sound system is great. The house is very convenient to town and we went to some very nice restaurants very close to the house. The house has two sleeping areas so it is great for more than two people. We plan to return next year. We loved the fact the house is private with trees in front for privacy at the pool.

Our family just enjoyed 5 days in this beautiful home which is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The description provided is accurate and goes beyond what the pictures can convey. Furnishings and artwork are superb. We especially appreciated the cleanliness of the house and the beauty of the outside area. Much attention to detail is obvious everywhere. Communication with the owner has been such a pleasure. He is responsive and very kind. We would definitely recommend this lovely home to others who will share our sentiment that "the longer we stay here, the more we love this home."

We spent 4 delightful days at this home to escape the cold back home. We found the home to be very well maintained, and perfectly clean upon our arrival. The house is fully stocked with many extras. We particulary enjoyed the pool area, which very nice, and totally private. The owner, Tom was easy to work with, and takes great pride in this home. We would highly reccomend this to anyone seeking a quiet retreat in Palm Springs. BG/AG New York

This home was the perfect fit for my wife and I and both sets of parents. 6 total adults. The house was clean, fully equipped and well furnished/decorated. Just really well cared for. Everything worked and felt newly renovated. Everyone had space and privacy throughout the stay. The whole experience was a joy. Our parents where showering me with accolades for 'finding the place'. The indoor/outdoor flow was fun. The fireplace was neat. The pool was worth heating, we didn't think we'd use it but ended up in there quite a bit. Fully equipped kitchen and grill experience. The location couldn't be better. Very close to 'the main drag'. Totally private yard. Owner was promptly responsive to texts and emails. If I go back to Palm Springs, I won't bother searching elsewhere. I'd be delighted to return here.

Truly an oasis secluded in a quiet neighborhood and yet close to all the downtown action. Owner and near by neighbor/helper were really nice people and took the up most care to meet all of our needs! Beautifully furnished and landscaped with everything you would possibly need for your stay including lots of great reading material to enjoy. If it's rest and relaxation you are looking for this is the place. We Love Palm Springs!!
