          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 County 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, 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 modern touches with the Mid-Century Modern architecture that was original to the building resulting in a mix between history and today’s comfort necessities. The best unique benefit I can personally offer you is the most honest, personable, and friendly service in the Industry while respecting your privacy. I personally handle all aspects of my vacation rental apartments and look forward to being of service.
