About Paul Schumaker

My partner and I are Angelenos who enjoy traveling and weekend desert getaways! We also have the home next door, vrbo listing # 492065.

Paul Schumaker purchased this house in 2008

Why Paul Schumaker chose Racquet Club Estates

We love the desert lifestyle, and the proximity is perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. We're big fans of mid-century architecture, and love the neighborhood. We purchased the house in 2008, and spent the entire summer renovating it.

What makes this house unique

If you like post-modern style, you'll love the house. We really tried to preserve the architectural integrity of the home, while making it comfortable, stylish and most of all fun. We like our guests to feel like they're getting away from it all, Palm Springs style!

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this house, but we have stayed four times next door at Paul and Dean’s other rental. They are the best property owners I have ever rented from. Their homes are beautiful and their service is impeccable. They do everything they can to ensure your stay is a positive experience. They are responsive with any questions you have or needs during your stay. This trip was another wonderful one. The house is perfectly outfitted and conveniently located. The backyard is truly a retreat and I spent many an hour relaxing in and by the pool and waterfall. Can’t wait until our next stay.

Well-stocked home with great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

As I point of reference, I stay almost exclusively in home rentals on vacation. So, for me, this home was excellent relative to others because it was exceptionally well stocked with absolutely any item you could need or want, and because Paul was exceptionally communicative, both before and during our stay. Usually even when an owner hires a property manager, they don’t do much. But Paul, even being remote, answered texts and even called with the few small questions we had.

The home is on a quiet cul de sac with a couple very nice homes, and a couple more simple homes. The location was a convenient drive to everything, especially the grocery. This is not an overly walkable area, but knowing the sprawling layout of Palm Springs, we expected to drive everywhere.

The bed linens were comfortable, as was the living room furniture. The outdoor space actually lived larger and seemed much nicer than I was expecting from the photos. I stayed with two girlfriends and we had plenty of room to hang by the pool, enjoy the fire pit and hot tub. I would say our party was just about the ideal size for the space.

I particularly enjoyed doing work in the mornings in the sunny, peaceful living room. The neighbors were very quiet and there is zero traffic noise, which was so refreshing coming from the city.

House was clean and overall in good shape. I’d definitely stay again with friends my next time in Palm Springs — a very good value for this price. Thanks Paul!

Fabulous, cozy mid-mod near downtown

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a private week between the holidays here, recharging and resting up for family. We couldn't have chosen a better place. The Alexander-built home has been fabulously restored, you can see the mountains from the spa and pool, and the community liquor cart had a cocktail waiting for when we arrived (and don't forget to pay it forward if you visit). The neighborhood is full of other mid-century homes and makes for a great walk. Downtown is close enough to walk to - but don't forget that in the winter, the sun goes behind the mountain in the mid afternoon and things get dark fast. The hosts were wonderful and gracious, checking in but giving us space to unwind. Very private back yard and home, very quiet street. We'll be back!

Peaceful, bright house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Paul and Dean's house in Palm Springs was just what we needed to escape our hectic lives in LA. The house is an Alexander design, with big bright windows reflecting the beautiful desert mountains and landscape in every room of the house. Paul was attentive and available for any questions before and during our stay. The house was clean, had all the amenities needed, central AC, and a beautiful pool with a waterfall. The house is also a quick 15 minute walk to Palm Springs proper, if you're needing a city escape. Will definitely stay here again!

Everything about this home is just fabulous! It's clean, well appointed, nicely furnished, and just a really great space. Everything you could need is provided and then some. We spent most of our time outdoors, in the pool. With 2 young children, having the 2 umbrellas over the steps was perfect and provided a nice relief from the sun when needed. The owners are also wonderful! Easy to communicate with and they truly want you to have a wonderful stay. I would easily say they are the best I've dealt with. We would definitely stay here again!
