This is a truly gorgeous home, and Virginia was incredibly responsive and helpful before and during our stay. Love that there are two master bedrooms. The light in them both is fantastic. Pool and outdoor space were great. No complaints at all - can't wait to come back!
Architecturally significant and so comfortable for our 2 families!
This is the nicest property we've found in Palm Springs and we've been visiting for 5+ years. Real quality is evident in the renovation of the Kriesel/Alexander home, the landscaping, the furnishings, the art and team we interfaced with. Check in and out was a breeze! Highly recommended!
Thank you for the kind words from our favorite guest :)
Perfect Palm Springs Paradise
From the moment we walked in the door, we were impressed! This home has been thoughtfully updated and feels very spacious- perfect for our group of 8. Two master suites with in-suite bathrooms and two additional bedrooms. Very functional floor plan for a large group. The beds were comfortable and had great linens. The highlight of the property was the backyard- saltwater pool, hottub, BBQ, firepit, plenty of lounge chairs...this place has it all. Some of the pool rafts were a little grungy, but other than that, perfection! Looking forward to returning in the future!
Thank you so much for the review, we love hearing what our guests have to say about the home and what their favorite parts were! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to having you stay with us again in the future!
Speechless!!! awesome house in and out!!!great art work and interiors through out the house. The house is lot bigger it seems in and out from the photos shown on VRBO. Julie the manager was so welcoming and nice!!! Nothing to complain but what a great house it was. Def. coming back for future stays or getaways. We had a great time for 30th birthday celebration and all our friends and couples enjoyed it very much. Thank you and Samuel and Julie!!!
Thank you very much for the kind words Tommy! We loved having you at the house and are glad you enjoyed yourselves and the home so much. We look forward to having you stay with us again whenever you are in town. Have a great day!
Wow, simply wow.
We booked this legendary Alexander "Butterfly" home, situated in a gorgeous and quiet part of Palm Springs, for 2 families. Driving up, we couldn't help but admire the stunning low water yard, but it kept getting better as we walked into the very cool outdoor foyer. Opening the second door to the interior of the house was truly the wow factor though. Light abounds in every room, and the extensive glass gives wonderful views of the amazing backyard. In some bedrooms, there's spectacular mountain scenery.
Everything worked really well in the well equipped kitchen, the house and yard was immaculate, pool clean and warm (82F), the spa really warm (101F,) and the rooms airy and very nicely appointed. The layout with 2 luxe master suites is ideal for our kind of mini vacation with 2 families.
Frankly I struggle to find anything remotely disappointing at this stunning property. I'd be reduced to quibbles (such as the lack of a garlic press). The HD channel selection available on the large flat panels sprinkled around the home was great, and even the wifi was good. Julie was quite helpful and the instructions for pool/spa and wifi etc was very clear. All around a truly memorable stay!
We will be back.
Modern and fun!
Great place for a family holiday! The pool and spa were great. The outdoor fireplace was fun. We also used the outdoor grill and the indoor fireplace for our Christmas celebration.
There is no shortage of activities in this beautiful city. There are a host of world class golf courses, horse trails, and hiking for those wanting to enjoy the outdoors. For those seeking a thrill, stop by Off road Rentals off Highway 111 just north of town, where you can rent ATV's and go explore the desert. 'The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is the largest funicular in the world, and the views during the twelve and a half minute ride to the top of Mount San Jacinto are absolutely breathtaking. For those who are seeking less adventure and more relaxation, there are plenty of coffee shops, bars, and boutiques all within walking distance of the house.
