Best weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the house for our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! Loved the outdoor spaces -- super private and our dog loved running around -- and the clean, well-equipped house. It was way too big for the two of us so we hope to be back soon with friends! David and Tricia are great. Highly recommend.

Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of long time friends loved our stay here. We had plans for shopping and other activities but ended up only leaving the house for a few hours for dinner one night. The kitchen had all the things we needed to cook our meals. We spent most of our time by the pool. The backyard is very private and has plenty of seating. The house was very clean and was much bigger than we expected! We all agreed that we would like to rent again for our next trip to Palm Springs!!

Perfect Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house with some friends to celebrate my birthday and couldn't have asked for a better house. It was absolutely perfect! We were able to lounge around the pool all day and grill out and jacuzzi at night. There were plenty of rafts for the pool and the house is stocked with any cooking utility or utensil you could need. I would definitely come back!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was all we had hoped for! A group of us were looking for a fun get away for a long weekend. And it was so much fun. The house is well equipped, clean, nicely decorated with a vintage vibe and the outdoor space is awesome. We loved everything about it. Highly recommend - we hope to be back for another visit.

Wonderful Villa and Pool

  • 5 of 5

Excellent service from booking the villa to meeting the rep on arrival and on leaving. Had one minor issue and that was dealt with within minutes, can't ask for more than that.

The villa was superb and had a real upmarket feel. Everything worked and was in good condition. Comfy beds and a TV in every room.

The pool area was wonderful, secluded with mountain views. Lots of loungers and pool toys.

Lovely pool and the 'tanning shelf' is a novel idea. Loved the spa and spend a number of nights watching the sun go down and the stars come out.

The villa is within easy reach of the main street in Palm Springs with a number of small shops and lots of restaurants.

If you’re into walking/hiking there are plenty of trails to explore either on your own or with a guide.

We will definitely be going back to Palm Springs in the future and if it's available I will definitely consider renting 'Shaken, Not Stirred' again. Highly recommended.

The home is located in the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood and is an original Alexander designed by the architect William Kreisel. The late actor Steve Mcqueen was an orginal resident in our cul de sac.

The home has grocery shopping just one mile away including a Starbucks kiosk. Enjoy our favorite little texmex place, the Blue Pear, which is a 10 minute walk away. Dinks is fun from September through May for drinks and lounging. Downtown Palm Springs is two miles away with fantastic restaurants, retail, art galleries, and entertainment. We love breakfast at Jake's. The home is convenient to scores of golf courses with the challenging Escena Golf Course only two miles away. Take the Tram, only two miles away, to the top of Mt. San Jacinto where you can find snow while the valley below is 80 degrees. Families will enjoy Victoria Park which is two blocks away or perhaps an excursion to Knotts Soak City, the Living Desert Zoo, or the Children’s Museum.
