Spacious, well appointed and a great location
Spacious, well appointed and a great location
We stayed in this lovely townhouse in February 2012. It is a delightful, bright and beautifully decorated home. The place was spotless. The kitchen was well-appointed with everything we needed, including basics like cooking oil, salt and pepper. Comfy beds, cute linens, lots of towels. Great pool and enclosed courtyard, much appreciated by our small children (and as parents we appreciated the fence around the pool). Stunning views of the mountains from the pool area and from the house. We loved being able to walk to great restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and thrift stores. No groceries close by, but a bike rental place is around the corner. We're runners, so we enjoyed morning runs through the Old Las Palmas neighbourhood.

Honored to be first guest!
Honored to be first guest!
I feel honored to be the first guest at this Merito Manor bungalow! It was a such delight to stay there, I didn't want to leave! The mid-century modern architecture and mix of modern and vintage furnishings were a perfit accompaniment to the activities my Palm Springs Modernism Week visit. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet with beautiful views and yet just a few steps away from the activities, shopping & dining of the strip... all within easy walking distance. A pleasant stroll through the lovely and renown Old Las Palmas neighborhood beckons just outside the front door. The thoughtful and caring hospitality of the owner and property manager was especially endearing... a welcome basket loaded with goodies and brochures awaited my arrival. I'm looking forward to returning...

Why Old Las Palmas:
We fell in love with the location - steps from the Palm Springs strip and down the street from the former homes of Liberace, Lily Tomlin, Kirk Douglas and many more. The unique mid centrury architecture with Wexler paper fold roof design, in a 10 condo community assures quiet peacful enjoyment yet so close to down town. No car required!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our place has been re-modeled in classic mid-centruy modern decour. Vintage lamps and furniture, Kitchen redone in 50's style. Attention to detail down to the record player with Elvis Album, the Life magazines on the coffee table with Kennedy / Johnson on the cover. The property is part of a 10 home development so there is peace and quiet. The pool area is easily accessible. I love being only one block from the Palm Springs strip. No need for a car or the hassles of parking. Easy walking distance to cafes, restauraunts,clubs, bars and casino.
