Best place to stay in Palm Springs!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe how wonderful Gerry's place is. The pictures don't do it justice, it's simply stunning in every way. One of the most amazing features of the house is that each of the four beautiful bedrooms has it's on ensuite. It's basically your own private resort within walking distance to great restaurants and shopping downtown. Anytime I book a higher end place on VRBO or AirBnB I'm always a bit skeptical as I want to make sure my money is well spent. Gerry's place is worth every penny and if anything is a bargain for what quality accommodations you get. Truly a luxury getaway in the heart of Palm Springs. I will be recommending this place to all my friends, family and colleagues. Thanks Gerry!

Superb home, meticulously designed.

  • 5 of 5

This home is really, really beautifully designed, even better than the photos. Every piece has been carefully chosen- the lighting, the kitchenware, the art works. The back garden is really stylish too.

Location: Super close to the best shopping street in Palm Springs, but still quiet and peaceful.

I was extremely impressed with the entire experience, including the warmth and efficiency of the owner. Definitely 5 stars.
