I am a Real Estate agent in Los Angeles/Beverly Hills for the John Aaroe Group. From my early school years I can remember riding my bicycle to all the neighboring new housing developments in Miami, Florida where I was born and raised to look at the furnished model homes. My life long love and appreciation for quality design began there and continued to my college and early work years in Texas and my 34 years in Los Angeles. This is property # 17 for me. I am certain I have a few more home projects in me but for now I am content. I have a second bedroom & bath planned and beginning to explore installing an outdoor spa (plunge pool).

JOHN BURNS purchased this house in 2007

Why JOHN BURNS chose Warm Sands

I am quite fond of the Warm Sands Neighborhood for a number of reasons. It is one of the oldest if not the oldest neighborhoods in Palm Springs. It has had many famous residents from Bugsy Seigle to Walt Disney. It is primarily Spanish in it's architecture (Adobe and Stucco) with a good representation of 40's and 50's Ranch and Mid Century. The mountain views are some of the best and walking and bicycling are great modes of transportation to downtown Palm Springs. I see a bright future for this area along with positive growth and enrichment.

What makes this house unique

The golden rules of Real Estate apply: 'Location, Location, Location'.

Paradise in Palm Springs

This bungalow in the heart of Palm Springs is conveniently located in the Warm Sands area of town. It's been totally updated, is well maintained and is good for pet companions. It's now at the top of our VRBO list and we would highly recommend it to friends and family!

Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect Palm Springs Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was a great value/property for our first visit to PS. The house was in a quiet neighborhood but within walking distance of the main strip/shopping/restaurants. Loved the backyard patio where I could enjoy a beverage and listen to the mourning doves coo /mockingbirds sing. Loved the 1950s vibe of the house and the excellent artwork. Bed was comfortable and kitchen well stocked. Definitely recommend

As good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place and location! We could walk to restaurants, shopping, markets, etc. From the kitchen to the bath, to the living space, John anticipated everything that was needed to make our stay comfortable. We hope to stay there again.

Great location for International Film Festival

  • 5 of 5

John Burns was a very thoughtful host. He was easily accessible to answer questions about heating & wifi access. The kitchen was fully equipped & the property is located in a quiet neighbohood, close to uptown & downtown restaurants & theatres. The gas fireplace gave a warm glow on cool mornings & evenings. The artwork was a delight. Only downside was the shower which changed temperature abruptly, but there were lots of towels.

Great PS rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at John’s house this past holiday season. Let me start by saying that the house is in impeccable shape and very nicely decorated. The kitchen is well stocked (lots of pots, pans, coffee maker, wine glasses, you name it) as is the bathroom and bedroom. Location could not be best, within walking distance to coffee shops, movie theater and short bike ride to downtown. John is also very attentive, and the couple times that we contacted him, he was quick to respond and had an answer for us within less than an hour. Other than the fact that it rained for most of our stay, this was one of the best experience we’ve had with VRBO. We will definitely be back to Palm Springs and this property!
