Private Homes house description

Enjoy this pet free and smoke free home. Smoking of course is allowed outside. Spectacular views of the San Jacinto Mountains from the privacy of the patio area or while lounging in the pool or spa. The patio has a natural gas BBQ with table and six chairs for your outside eating pleasure. Plastic plates and glasses are provided for the pool area. The pool is saltwater. There are lounge chairs and many beach towels for your use. The home sits on a large private lot in a great neighborhood on a quiet residential street, perfect for neighborhood walks. We expect our guest to maintain the quiet atmosphere of the neighborhood. This is not a party house so if that is what you are looking for please do not rent this house, thanks. The house is centrally located near downtown Palm Springs where you will find an abundance of shopping, restaurants, drugstores and grocery stores. We are not far from the Palm Springs airport which offers inexpensive, convenient rental cars. There is a two car attached garage with a washer and dryer.

This 1550 sq.foot home has been remodeled over the past few years and features a large well equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and top of the line stainless steel appliances, even has a seperate wine cooler. The kitchen is fully equipped so bring your cook book and cook while you gaze out the windows towards the pool and lush gardens. The beautiful beamed ceiling living area is very comfortable with a 46 inch flat screen TV mounted over the fireplace with DVD, Stereo and CD player. Wireless internet is also provided for your laptops. The phone service comes with free long distance within the continental United States and Canada.

The sleeping quarters are at the opposite end of the living space. The master bedroom is equipped with a king size bed and french doors that lead to the patio and pool/spa area. The master bath has a shower/tub. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and both bedrooms have flat screen TV's and DVD players. The third sleeping space is an office/bedroom with a queen size bed and desk. This room is also private with a standard door opening onto the hall.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: My name is Craig Holmes and I am a native of California and was raised in Petaluma, California. I am a retired Office Equipment Dealer who was in business in Monterey, Ca. for 30 years. I have purchased this home in Palm Springs to rent to quiet adults who will be respectful towards the property and neighbors. This home is an animal free home which is also free of smoking. Outside smoking is acceptable. The home was in great shape when purchased and has been upgraded since then and the pool has been converted to salt water. Contract signer must be at least 25 years of age and no children under the age of 12 years. I am not new to the short term vacation business. I have two condos on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that I have managed myself for over 20 years. You may view those properties on vrbo. Contact me for numbers. I thank you in advance for renting my special Palm Springs home. Craig Holmes

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Palm Springs has become a major California destination for vacationers and retirement.
