          Car: Recommended

          Your new vacation home is located near Downtown in the none windy South Area of Palm Springs, California. Made famous in the mid 1900's by Hollywood Movies Stars, Palm Springs was the place Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, and Bob Hope got away to play golf and drink martinis by the pool. Located less than 100 miles (2 hour drive) from Los Angeles, Palm Springs is still home to many stars in the entertainment industry. Local Movie Star Tours will show you where they live. Walk to downtown from your apartment and stroll through the sidewalks gazing at the Walk of Stars to find your favorite idol or shop at the many stores located in the Downtown Village. The mountain views are amazing. Ascend 2.5 miles to a pristine wilderness aboard the World's Largest Rotating Tram Cars and hike for hours amongst nature or enjoy the many other amenities available at the top. Golf, hiking, shopping, and a lively nightlife are but a few of the things to do here.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1996

          About the owner: Born in Havana-Cuba moving to the USA in 1969. Grew up mostly in the South Bay of Los Angeles graduating from Mira Costa High School in 1975. Have lived in Manhattan Beach, Torrance, Long Beach, Bakersfield, and now Palm Springs. Hospitality has been my carrier since my first job just out of high school. Now enjoying life to the fullest and sharing a piece of Paradise with my guests.

          Why the Owner Chose Warm Sands:
          Being in the Hospitality Industry all my life I long dreamed of owning my own business where I could provide deluxe, comfortable, and personable but yet private accommodations for travelers from all parts of the world. Since the late 1970’s I often vacationed in Palm Springs where I always enjoyed the warm sunny weather and relaxing resort style atmosphere this wonderful town has to offer. The Mid-Century Modern architecture, majestic mountains surrounding the valley and historic Hollywood movie star flair are but a few features that makes Palm Springs like no other location in the world. When it came time to choose the destination for my dream I considered other locations like Hawaii and Key West, but the charm and location of this amazing desert city far outweighed any others I could have chosen. So, in 1996 I made the best decision I ever made in my life and chose Palm Springs to live out my dream. Since then my experience here has surpass my expectations and every day that goes by I continue to find new exiting things to see and do, and what a great feeling it is to share that with my guests!

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          The central location of this property is one of the unique benefits you will enjoy with the ability to walk downtown for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and the active night life that makes Palm Springs one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. Additional benefits include having your very own full kitchen, private patio with outdoor gas grill, relaxing by the heated pool and spa, and enjoying the majestic views of our beautiful mountains which include hiking trails, waterfalls, and local flora. Built in the late 1950’s a recent renovation has incorporated original features such as our retro kitchen and original bathroom tiles with today’s interior design touches like the wall to wall ceramic designer tile, Euro style furnishings and artwork to create a mix between history and today’s comfort necessities.
