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'.

Super great!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was perfect. It had everything we needed and more. John is super accommodating and helpful. The house had more than enough space for the two of us and our 65lb dog. The patios are lovely. The interior is very comfy. The location is great - we rode our bikes down to the main strip; we walked to Townie bagels and Sherman’s. Very central. Well priced and more convenient than a hotel.

Fantastic, clean vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in Palm Springs and this house was amazing. Very clean and well stocked. John was an excellent host and responded quickly to any questions or needs that we had. The home is within walking distance to the downtown area which offered many restaurants and things to do. I plan on returning to this home for future Palm Springs vacations.

Super convenient Palm Springs rental

  • 4 of 5

Can't beat the location of the property. Within walking or biking (with included bikes) distance to all the action. John was super responsive. Decor was very mid century and everything was included - even a couple brews in the frig. Interior could use just a slight bit of TCL, but didn't detract from our stay. Views from the front are amazing too!

Cozy, comfortable home within walking distance of downtown.

  • 4 of 5

The house is cozy, updated, and well stocked with a lovely view of the mountains from the front. The bed was comfortable with very nice linens. John, the owner, was very helpful and attentive to any needs. He loaned us two bikes which made our visit even sweeter. The home is within walking distance of the downtown area which is a plus.
