About Jorge Martinez

Born in Havana-Cuba moving to the USA in 1969. Grew up mostly in the South Bay of Los Angeles County graduating from Mira Costa High School in 1975. Have lived in Manhattan Beach, Torrance, Long Beach, Bakersfield, and now Palm Springs. Hospitality has been my carrier since my first job just out of high school. Now enjoying life to the fullest and sharing a piece of Paradise with my guests.

Jorge Martinez purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Jorge Martinez chose Warm Sands

Being in the Hospitality Industry all my life I long dreamed of owning my own business where I could provide deluxe, comfortable, and personable but yet private accommodations for travelers from all parts of the world. Since the late 1970’s I often vacationed in Palm Springs where I always enjoyed the warm sunny weather and relaxing resort style atmosphere this wonderful town has to offer. The Mid-Century Modern architecture, majestic mountains surrounding the valley and historic Hollywood movie star flair are but a few features that makes Palm Springs like no other location in the world.

When it came time to choose the destination for my dream I considered other locations like Hawaii and Key West, but the charm and location of this amazing desert city far outweighed any others I could have chosen. So, in 1996 I made the best decision I ever made in my life and chose Palm Springs to live out my dream. Since then my experience here has surpass my expectations and every day that goes by I continue to find new exiting things to see and do, and what a great feeling it is to share that with my guests!

What makes this apartment unique

The central location of this property is one of the unique benefits you will enjoy with the ability to walk downtown for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and the active night life that makes Palm Springs one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. Additional benefits include having your very own full kitchen, relaxing by the heated pool and spa, and enjoying the majestic views of our beautiful mountains which include hiking trails, waterfalls, and local flora. Built in the late 1950’s a recent renovation has incorporated modern touches with the Mid-Century Modern architecture that was original to the building resulting in a mix between history and today’s comfort necessities.

The best unique benefit I can personally offer you is the most honest, personable, and friendly service in the Industry while respecting your privacy. I personally handle all aspects of my vacation rental apartments and look forward to being of service.

Great Retro Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're yearning for the the 50's....this is the place! A comfy apartment, walk-able to downtown Palm Springs. Jorge was very accessible to our needs and made us feel welcome. The apartment we stayed in (no.4), was perfect for a couple. The pool was steps away. We recommend a stay.

This was a nice quiet place for my mom and I to peacefully enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and decorated very cute. My mother loved the decor and all the old Hollywood books that were in the room. Jorge was great and so was the pool and jacuzzi.

We'd stay again and highly recommend to others.

Cute, Quiet, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had the most wonderful quiet stay! Small complex with only 6 units and pool. The unit was very spacious for a one bedroom. Cute retro 50’s feel on the inside. Place was very clean and stocked with all the essentials. I recommend staying here and will most definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: I appreciate it when guests take the time to comment on their visit, especially when they describe in detail their positive experience regarding the condition of the property as "specious, clean, and well stocked". It gives me an incentive to continue providing the same for all future guests.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This Condo was in a great location for us. In the heart of Warm Sands and just 15 minutes walk to either the bars on Arenas or the Ralph's at Sunrise. The Condo was just what we were looking for and was our first time booking through VRBO. It's a nice quiet property and it was great to have Jorge living on site and taking care of things during our stay.

I can only give 5 stars? As always I had a wonderful stay. Jorge is very attentive.

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed with Jorge before and his attentiveness has spoiled me. I equate Palm Springs with Jorge. I stayed in a different apartment this time. Like the other one it is clean, cozy , comfortable and a delight to look at. The location is great. It is close to downtown, the airport, shopping areas, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage and other areas in the Coachella Valley. I love the fact that I can eat out or stay in and cook a meal. This place is my home away from home. I wish I could give Jorge and his place more than 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Judy has been staying with me for years and every time it's like seeing a long time friend. She travels all over and it is nice to know that when it's time to come to Palm Springs she considers my place her home away from home. I am already looking forward to her next visit.
