About Steve

We love exploring in the desert and hiking

We love the architecture and the history of the home. The house is modernism at it's best. Clean lines and walls of glass. It is very peaceful and quiet with views of the mountains and the house is extremely comfortable with quality beds and fine linens.

Steve purchased this house in 2011

Why Steve chose Twin Palms

We love the neighborhood. We can easily walk a couple of blocks to Kofi coffeshop or the trendy Ace Hotel. We can also walk to the smoke tree shopping area for great resturants-- the best Vegan Resturant in town. Also authentic Vietnamese Resturant and new pizza and pasta. Close to everything yet very quiet neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

One of the best things about our house is that it is so quiet. Three large bedrooms and three baths.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. The owner was wonderful and responded to all inquirers thoughtfully. The house is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could need. The design of the house and landscaping is phenomenal and is a great treat if you are a fan of mid-century modern architecture.

The house is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood and close to all the PS attractions. Great place! Highly recommend.

A step back in time.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this "retro property".

There was the right mix of 60s feel and modern amenities. A very spacious house with a large living/dining area. The decor was very cool with lots of references to the original owner. The bedrooms were all comfortable. The house was plenty cool even though it was July. A large outside pool area with lots of shade or sun depending on your preference is where we tended to spend our afternoons. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood with many beautiful residences.

Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating.I would highly recommend this property.

This home is very stylish and in a great location. It has an interesting history as well. It also boasts a well shaded pool to beat the heat. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Mid century delight!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to go back in time and experience an awesome mid century home with many original details in a super cool neighborhood this is it! Our host Steve was great to work with and helped with anything we needed and made the process seemless. The house is fully stocked with anything you would need and the pool was amazing in the July record heat! Located close to many hip local coffee shops and places to grab a bite. I’ve always enjoyed mid century design and details and this was my first time ever being inside and able to “live” in a home for a few days that is designed by a significant architect of the time. The neighborhood was also super quiet and relaxing too, you forget where you are floating around in the pool. I feel like I gained a few years of life with how relaxing my stay was and I would definitely stay here again!

Walking distance to shops and restaurants... including Koffi and the Ace Hotel. We love to go hiking up to the mountains and to the nearby Indian Palm Canyons.
