About Jeffrey Schneider

I have been a long term resident of Silver Lake, in Los Angeles, over 20 years now. I'm originally from NY and spent my early adult life as a pioneer of the East Village in NYC going to NYU, then working as a set designer in the NY theatre. I came out to California to work with architects doing specialty design for many high end casinos and hotels in Las Vegas and around the world.

Jeffrey Schneider purchased this house in 2017

Why Jeffrey Schneider chose Tahquitz River Estates

I have always loved the beauty, majesty and serenity of the desert. Palm Springs offers the perfect escape from the big city, and I am so happy to have finally found my own personal oasis of peace and calm and clean air and a beautiful desert garden for rejuvenation.

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this Palm Springs home. Great location, well appointed home with everything you need for a great vacation. We have rented many homes through VRBO over the years and this property was the most comfortable, well decorated and equipped with everything you need. The picturesque back yard surrounded by mountains with a heated pool and Jacuzzi was perfect, and top of the line BBQ grill and kitchen appliances made cooking a joy. The little things an owner does to make your stay comfortable makes all the difference in the world sometimes. We will be renting again on our next trip to Palm Springs, thank you for making our stay so wonderful.

Beautiful backyard!!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this property. We truly enjoyed the pool and beautiful grounds around the pool. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean and tidy when we got there. There is a sound ordinance in this neighborhood which did make us come in by 10 pm and we couldn't have any amplified music. This could pose a problem for some but we didn't mind and we appreciated the quiet and peaceful area. We would definitely go back.

Great house and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as described. It is beautifully decorated inside and all four beds are extremely comfortable. Our party of 6 slept great. For those with small children, be aware that there are many pieces of glass art throughout the home in easy reach of curious hands. The backyard is very private and beautifully landscaped. Lots of birdsong during the day and a couple of very tame hummingbirds visited us every day. The saltwater pool is easy on your eyes and swim ware, however the small attached spa is lightly chlorinated. Not really a problem. The house manager Carla is very friendly and helpful with suggestions. Every restaurant she recommended was excellent. The owner Jeffrey was very helpful with quick answers to all our questions before renting. This is a fantastic place to stay in Palm Springs.

This was a fabulous home and was very well set up and maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Really good quality with little extras like shampoo and some fridge supplies that were really appreciated. The pool was heated as per the specifications which was perfect. The games and books were a nice feature, and the yard was beautifully maintained. All in all, it was just about perfect - the only glitch was the spa didn't heat up the last night we were there, but it worked the previous nights. We would definitely come back though!

Lovely house.

This is a nicely updated house in a quiet neighborhood. It worked perfectly for our two families of four. The kitchen is well stocked. The backyard and pool are great.
