          Other Amenities

              • This property is like a small beautiful village in Mexico or Spain. It has a beautiful garden designed by Laura Morton Designs in Hollywood. The 1957 Lincraft trailer has two doors and it's own small deck - it is a lovely bar inside! Low-key, very private, magical! This is not your typical modern house rental. If you want to come to Palm Springs to watch flat-screen TV and sit in your sunken marble hot tub, this is NOT for you. This house is for people who want an exotic and relaxing magical place to visit with family and friends - like traveling back in time. Only a few blocks from hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars, dancing and old Palm Springs fun. ...moreless

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Designed and renovated by a husband wife (photographer / landscape designer) team to recreate the feeling of old Palm Springs with modern Mexican / Mediterranean flourishes

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahquitz River Estates:
                  The views are heavenly, the vibe is going back in time to when Palm Springs was filled with Spanish Revival architecture like this home. Large pool, diving board, separate casita, beautiful redone tiled bathrooms, new appliances, French doors, walled and gated for privacy!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  2 hours from Los Angeles or San Diego, this downtown close home offers beauty, privacy, good taste and is unpretentious. No marble countertops, no phone, no tv - (of course we have high-speed internet - we're not crazy!). Plenty of parking, complete privacy among the four suites, great outdoor spaces (fire pit, pool area, fountains, 1956 Lincraft aluminum trailer bar (!) and more! Beautiful, tasteful colors and scents. Romantic and relaxed. It's an oasis from your real world. Close to shops, tennis, golf, hiking, bars and great food.
