Private Homes house description
This modern three-bedroom two-bath ranch style home has been updated and decorated as a relaxing desert vacation retreat. The sunny private walled front yard area offers a heated pool and hot tub in a desert landscape with mature palm trees and surrounding mountain views. The shady backyard lawn area provides a cool refuge from the sun, or a place for children and pets to run and play.

The home sleeps six with a King Master bedroom including private bath, and two Queen Bedrooms -- making it a perfect fit for a family or up to three couples.

The kitchen is complete, including microwave, dishwasher, ice maker, coffee and espresso maker, cookware, dishes and seating for six at the dining table.

It is a true hideaway... loved it
It is a true hideaway... loved it
Harriet's Hideaway was perfect for our family. Everything you needed was there ... and I mean everything, cookware , essentials, a book of attractions, instructions, even a beverage in the fridge. Having the 2 yards was awesome and the grounds and pool were beautiful, clean , quiet and private . Yes... you can hear the air traffic from the airport but it only made you glad you still there and did not have to leave yet. Every part of our rental went exceeding well from the booking, paying online, discussing details with the owner by email , meeting the manager at check in and the refund process. My family and I will be back. Thanks so much to Tony and Frank !

Wonderful surroundings with plenty of room for our extended family. Really enjoyed the pool area and hot tub. Ideal location for everything Palm Springs has to offer. Would love to return one day.

We arrived to meet Frank the property manager who guided us through the particulars and answer our questions. Frank called or visited a few times through week to confirm all was going well. Property was clean, with all the amenities. We had an excellent stay and would return again or recommend to our friends.

We had a great time.
We had a great time.
We had a great two week vacation with our little dogs. The house is ideal with the cool tiles, the pool and the hot tub. Our favorite spot is the backyard which is shaded with green grass. We loved relaxing and playing there. The dogs were very happy and safe with the high solid walls. Completely private. You don't see street or neighbors. So quiet. This was our second visit, and we will be back. The sisters and the dogs

Good Times in PS
Good Times in PS
In Palm Springs for our nephew's wedding and the house was a great place for us to hang out for the week. It worked great for a small cocktail party and was perfect for just chilling out. Smallish house was very roomy. We spent most of our time around the pool and hot tub area in front. And the backyard was great for our small labradoodle. Outside walls and beautiful, mature landscaping made it very private. Bedrooms are roomy. Good linens. House was very well stocked. Advise you check it out before going shopping. Older home is well kept and clean. What you would expect for old Palm Springs. Very comfortable. Kitchen flows well. Nice BBQ in backyard. Mixed neighborhood but not noisy. Some airport flyover that you don't even notice after a couple of days. Close to old Palm Springs which we really enjoyed. We would return in a heartbeat. Works so well for family or 2/3 couples. Highly recommend the Tram and Thur night street fair in dntn PS.

My husband and I enjoyed our extended January weekend at Harriet's Hideaway. The house is so comfortable and has all the ammenities anyone could want. The beds are super cozy and we enjoyed the hot tub in the mornings and evenings each day. We had family staying in the house next door. With the adjoining gate between the properties, we were able to conveniently walk back and forth between the houses and enjoy our evening BBQ's and cocktails. What a wonderful experience! We can't wait to return to enjoy all that rest and relaxation again soon.

Harriets Hideaway - Great Home
Harriets Hideaway - Great Home
We have just returned home from our holiday in Palms Springs. We stayed at Harriets Hideway for a week. We had been to Palm Springs before so we knew the area and what to expect. Harriets Hideway had all the home comforts that we needed - from kitchen foil in the kitchen (we had 2 home cooked roast dinners!) to towels for the pool. We went to Ralphs before our arrival as we thought we would get a few things in..we should have waited! Frank was there to greet us and walk through the rooms and how to use the TV etc. He was accomodating and said if we needed anything to just give him a call. Luckily we didn't need to do this. Much of our time was spent in the pool as the weather was excellent if it was too hot we were able to take cover under the patio covering. The house was comfortable and inviting. We would recommend this vaction home (we called it the villa) to anyone who would like a relaxed and sunkissed holiday. Our only complaint was we only had a week..we could have stayed for a month. Thankyou Tony for the use of your home and thankyou Frank for greeting us and being on hand if we needed anything. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

My husband and I spent the month of April and enjoyed every single minute! The pool is delightfully warm (85), which is a must for me because I won't use the pool if it's not. The yard is beautiful with the variety of flowers -- even got to see the catus bloom -- special! The weather was perfect -- even with a few windy days -- it didn't stop us from enjoying the yard. The house has plenty roomy for 6 -- cozy. Some things could be updated, but not a big deal. The neighborhood was very quiet, except for the occassional airplane, which added to the yard enjoyment. If you haven't been to Palm Springs, it's really an easy town to get around in and traffic is mostly light. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, golf courses as well. Anyway, we plan to go back and spend another month in 2013!

Relaxing family holiday
Relaxing family holiday
Our family had a great holiday at Harriet's Hideaway. The house was well stocked and very comfortable. There were great beds, tv's for our whole family and a wonderful pool to play in and relax by all day. Frank was great to show us around and answered any questions we had. The location was very convenient and the fenced yard gave lots of privacy. The owners were very organized and efficient with payments and returning deposits. There were occasional planes overhead but our son loved that! The noise was not a problem at all. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days to relax after a busy time in SF. The description and photographs of the property are accurate. The house has a slightly retro 60's look and feel about it and would benefit from a little updating here and there, but has all the mod cons you could wish for. Everything is clean and works well. The owner (Tony) was always helpful and flexible with the booking and the property manager, Frank, was really great….helpful but not pushy or intrusive in any way. We were met on arrival, shown around and given lots of good tips. He was available 24/7 for any advice or help we required. We used one bed and it was very comfortable with very nice bed linen. The kitchen was well stocked; everything you would need was there. The store cupboard had plenty of useful things…….salt, pepper, oil, flour, coffee, tea etc…. we noticed this a bit late so added to the already abundant supplies! The pool is kept at a perfect temperature and is cleaned twice a week - it is also very private and has very comfortable sun loungers. The nicely landscaped and well cared-for front and back gardens are a treat. It really was VERY easy to feel completely at home and relaxed here, and with Palm Springs being so small, you're not far from anything. There is some occasional noise from the airport but it’s all over in a few seconds and there didn't appear to be any night flights. When we do return to Palm Springs………we won’t be trawling the internet for places to stay…….we’ll just give Tony a call.
