The Hamrick House is absolutely georgeous! From the moment we pulled into the private gates of the estate, we were astounded by the open air and scenic views from this home. Every bedroom was well accommodated with all of the luxuries of a five star hotel. Palm Springs and cocktails go hand in hand and the open bar seating off the kitchen overlooking the pool was the perfect place to pass drinks to my guests.

Heaven on earth! Palm Springs Best Luxury Rental Home~!
Truly a special retreat. The city and mountain views are incredible. The entire property is even more beautiful in person. We are avid golfers, but spent most of our time relaxing and enjoying the house. The owner's attention to detail is remarkable. The guest guide was informative and helpful providing information on the home's history, local dining, and activities. We hope to return again next year. Thank you again Mark!
Palm Springs Perfection
The views were amazing, the beds super comfortable, loved the sheets and Frette towels. Our first visit during Modernism. We absolutely fell in love with this very special home. It is immaculately kept. Very close to beautiful hiking trails, great restaurants, and downtown. We biked, played ping pong, enjoyed reading (huge collection of books). Great Viking BBQ and super easy bluetooth wifi surround sound system. The outdoor movie experience was the best part! The house guide is through, informative, and useful. LOVED this home. Thank you again Mark! We will be back.
