                                This house was fabulous. Every detail was well thought out and Barbara was helpful at every turn. We have rented many houses, and this one really stands out. It is in a great location, is very beautiful and close to really great hiking trails. The casita works out very nicely if you are sharing the house with another couple. We will definitely rent with Barbara again if we find our way back to Palm Springs, which I hope we do!

                                An ideal home in an ideal place. Everything that we could have wanted during our time at this property had been anticipated, from pool accessories to kitchen implements. We could not have been more satisfied and content, and we look forward to the time when we return. Release yourself from the annoyances of resort vacationing, and embrace the privacy, beauty, and luxury of this home. Many thanks again, Barbara.

                                There is no question in our mind that Barb and Joan LOVE their home in Palm Springs. It is beautifully appointed in a minimalist style. We loved the privacy of the home and how BRIGHT the space was! The windows are great. The yard is beautifully landscaped - great location - close to shopping and downtown Palm Springs. The pictures and property description are accurate. It was a pleasure to deal with Barb. She is responsive and very helpful. The informational binder at the house was awesome! If you get a chance be sure to take a Jeep Tour of Indian Canyon and don't forget the Modern Architecture Tour. Both were excellent and provide a great opportunity to learn more about the Palm Springs area.

                                Owner response: You both were delightful to work with and I hope you'll return again soon! Thank you for sharing your suggestions about the Indian Canyon Jeep Tour and Modern Architecture Tour. There are so many wonderful things to do in Palm Springs and these are both fantastic options! We appreciate your your many kind words!

                                An oasis in the desert! Wonderful location, clean, comfortable modern furnishings and thoughtfully appointed with anything we might have needed. Morning coffee on the front patio watching the sunrise to a symphony of birdsong was a beautiful experience. As was enjoying evening cocktails by the pool and the lit landscape. Barb was a joy to work with as was the local property manager. Cannot wait to come back!

                                I was somewhat unsure of what to expect when I booked this home for our annual trip, when we arrived it was clear I had made a good choice. The home itself is in tremendous shape, and laid out perfectly. It has everything you need to enjoy Palm Springs (at least the way we do). The most striking part is where the home is located, and how it is situated. Views from the front are great, and overlook the whole valley. The view from the pool/backyard is incredible. Everything about our stay was pretty effortless, and Barbara the property owner was great and easy to deal with. If you are looking to truly get away this is a fantastic place to do it.

                                Recommended for: Girls getaway, sightseeing, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with young children, age 55+, tourists without a car.

                                Owner response: Thank you Justin for your vote! We enjoyed having you at the house to take in all you spoke of in your review. You were a joy to coordinate your stay in Palm Springs with. We appreciate your rental and your super review!

                                We couldn't recommend this property more adamantly. Not only is it just as beautiful as the photos (if not more so), the owners were extremely responsive and helpful throughout the process. When we arrived, our jaws literally dropped in excitement as we took in the gorgeous mountain vista and the home itself, which looked like a feature in a magazine. The property was flawlessly maintained, incredibly clean, and the amenities were abundant and thoroughly explained. We loved making brunch in the beautiful kitchen and enjoying mimosas by the pool. The casita is a perfect addition to the property - the lucky couple that gets that room will certainly feel like they are tucked away in a private and exclusive resort. Anybody looking for the perfect Palm Springs getaway should jump on reserving this property. It's centrally located (right near the Ace Hotel, a personal favorite of ours), yet feels like it is a private and secluded desert oasis. The people who selected, decorated, and maintain this home have flawless taste -- take advantage of their incredible property and you will be no less than extremely impressed, and most importantly, completely blissed out. We cannot wait to have the opportunity to return.

                                Owner response: Thank you Annika! Please come back soon...you and Freddy were a delight to deal with. The experience was enjoyed "all the way around"!

                                My wife and I recently returned from a stay at this fabulous property. The home is located in a very quiet, upscale neighbourhood. The home is laid out perfect for 2 or 3 couples or a large family. The seperate Casita in the backyard is like having another home on the property with total privacy. There are many patios around the home so you can chase the sun the entire day. The main patio is a great place to relax with friends for a drink and appies. The view from this patio is stunning, so much so that we sat there for 4 hours on the rockers and just enjoyed the sun. Great way to de-stress and unwind. The backyard is located directly on the mountain for total privacy and is perfect for windfree days lounging by the large pool and hot tub. The home is walking distance to many restaurants at the south end of Palm Canyon Drive. We walked over to El Mirasol (excellent Mexican food) for lunch one day. Try the house Margarita. It's also only a very short drive to downtown Palm Springs and all it has to offer. If you're a golfer, two great courses at Indian Canyon are only a 5 minute drive away. Barbara was great to deal with and quickly answered any questions we had. There was also a beautiful fruit basket waiting for us on arrival. Very nice touch! If you are looking for a stunning home in a great area of Palm Springs, look no further, this is the place.

                                Owner response: Sun, home in a great setting with views, golf, walking, r+r and good local food - you figured out the magic Palm Springs combination! Thank you for sharing your experience and for the kind words. We welcome your return!

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: We live in a cooler often chilly climate in Northern California. Palm Springs offers us a place to switch gears, warm our bones and provides us a delightful environment to engage nature and enjoy the many enlivening activites in the desert.

                              Why the Owner Chose Mesa:
                              We have been traveling to Palm Springs with good friends who owned a home in the desert since 2001. We were excited to find a home in a natural desert setting that we could renovate, enjoy and share with others!
