About Kevin Butler

I'm Michael Mulrooney and I purchased my Palm Springs home in 2003. I have always enjoyed the desert and the wonderful Mountain view as well as the Mid-Century architecture that Palm Springs is so noted for. I have two daughters who have helped me nurture and restore our beautiful home. We hope you enjoy it too!

Kevin Butler purchased this house in 2003

Why Kevin Butler chose Palm Springs

We chose to buy in the South side of Palm Springs due to the location close proximity to the Palm Springs downtown and the protection of the Mountains from the wind. The Tahquitz River Estates are unigue in design and hold true to the rich Mid-Century feel of Palm Springs in 1948

What makes this house unique

We are very close to downtown, shopping, resorts, golf courses, and hiking/biking trails.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this place is wonderful, located on a very quiet street yet very close to downtown (5 minute drive max). Loved the layout (bedrooms far away from any other activities like dining, cooking, media room) and it felt HUGE. Some fun decor was found throughout the home, along with groovy lighting, furniture, etc. Pool and spa were heated as requested, and it was pet friendly (there's even a doggy door...super helpful). The media room is fantastic, with a very large screen and great sound, all easily controlled with remotes and well-written instructions. There were some minor quibbles with the place (only 4 coffee cups for a place that accommodates 8), broken toilet seat in one bathroom (fixed the next day) and broken shower door in another, but all in all we really enjoyed our stay.

Best Palm Springs House Yet!

  • 5 of 5

The property owner was very kind & easy to communicate with. Our group needed to check out later on a Sunday & he was very accommodating. As for the home owner, he was very sweet & understandable when it came to us checking in late. He was very hospitable, & we felt extremely welcomed.

This house is spacious, & we loved how there were many parts to the house. Everyone had their own privacy due to the layout, & there were many areas of the house that were perfect for groups hanging out. No neighborhood complaints, as we were able to play music inside the house & a small amount outside during the day when we were lounging at the pool. Another plus side is the pool felt amazing during the summer night! No need for pool heating when you're in 100+ degree weather.

This place was relaxing & our friends would definitely come back & rent out for the weekend again!

Thank you, thank you Doug & Kevin! You guys are the best!!!

Perfect get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time staying at this house. There was plenty of room for all of us - the bedrooms were spacious and kitchen was the perfect size to prepare breakfast and mid-day snacks. The pool was perfect for hanging out and relaxing and the umbrellas gave us a break from the warm sun. The house was clean and Kevin was great to work with. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my large group. It is bigger and nicer than the pictures, as the photos don't show how spacious and well laid out the house is. Plus, the huge backyard with lounge chairs, pool, jacuzzi, waterfall, etc, was magnificent. The house is super well-equipped with everything you could want in the kitchen, plus games and books and even beach towels. The TV room gave us an extra bedroom which closed off for privacy and had its own half-bath. The house was close to everything in Palm Springs, yet felt private and safe.

Los Angeles, CA


  • 5 of 5

This house is even nicer and more spacious than the photos suggest. A small group of us visited for Coachella and regretted not being able to spend more time at the house. It's such a relaxing space and well divided with the bedrooms separate from the communal areas of the house. The kitchen is spacious and allowed for cooking large meals and the TV Room/Den was an added bonus that we didn't even realize existed.

The outdoor pool and jacuzzi area is also perfect. The pool is definitely one of the bigger pools I've seen in Palm Springs and the combination of sitting chairs and beach chairs gave everybody just what they needed.

The property mangers were very attentive and quick to reply during the initial booking process (Aiyana) and while we were at the house (Zamara).

Overall, this was a really great stay and we can't wait to visit again very soon!

Huge sunny backyard with a huge pool

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth VRBO rental and our third in Palm Springs and were treated great throughout the entire process. The pictures don't do the property justice as you don't get a sense of how large the backyard is until your standing there with a drink in your hand. Being in Palm Springs many times we know how important a west or south backyard can be with the cool nights or even during the day, we a little unsure of this place prior to arrival due to the north backyard. Don't worry the pool gets full sun from early morning till sunset over the mountains.

From other reviews the TV room is not described as well as it should be so I will try to do it justice. Basically it is a converted two car garage that is accessed through the kitchen and has a huge sectional, two chairs wet bar and a huge TV. Now we didn't go to Palm Springs to watch TV but early in the morning it is a nice place to have a coffee without bothering anyone else.

We had two families for the time we were there and all talked about the size of the rooms and cleanliness of the house. The two master suites made it simple to prepare for the day and the outside shower was used on more than one occasion for a morning shower.

The backyard is completely private and you could wander around naked it that was your bent and you would not be seen any anyone except the doves singing on the overhead power lines.

For those travelling with children there is some risque art in the house but nothing a hand towel couldn't hide. The only other suggestion would to have a diving board installed a the deep end or a ladder to get out, which would increase the value of such a big pool.

We all loved the house and if we were looking for a 4 bedroom house again we would not hesitate to return
