About Nick Holm

We grew up in the same small town in rural Northeast Iowa. When we are not working, we enjoy anything outdoors, including, camping, boating, and hiking. Traveling has always been our passion, particularly the west coast. We fell in love with California the first time we visited. We especially loved the warm climate of Palm Springs. We also really fell in love with the architecture of the homes there and the rich history of this great town.

Nick Holm purchased this house in 2012

Why Nick Holm chose Ruth Hardy Park

We really enjoy the mid-century styling and history of these homes in Palm Springs. When we began looking at homes there that was our primary focus. We found this property and fell in love with its location. It's within close walking distance of downtown but is very quiet and relaxing at night and in the morning. It made for the perfect desert retreat for us.

What makes this house unique

We really loved the architecture of this house and the spectacular mountain views that it offers both from the patio area and also from the pool and spa. It was everything we wanted in a mid-century house in Palm Springs.

Cool Mid-Century Modern Home with Sparkling Pool

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we needed for a couples getaway. Six of us, all twenty-somethings, stayed in the house for two nights and loved every minute of it. It was the perfect size for our group. The pool was awesome and provided a nice shade during the hot sun. Loved having the grill too, and there was plenty of seating for all of us inside and out. Nick was responsive to our requests/questions and was awesome to work with. The only downfall was the jacuzzi heat - the new system wasn't allowing the spa to heat up. Luckily, it was so hot out that it didn't bother us too much--I think he is fixing it soon anyway :) Two thumbs up, would definitely stay here again.

This is a sweet, stylish house in a nice neighborhood. It is very well equipped and yet not cluttered. We had record temperatures for the time of year and so the pool was great. We had a very relaxing visit and hope to return.

It is even better than it looks...think calming relaxing and easy!

  • 5 of 5

Could not say enough good about home, owner and location. We were in need of nothing, from kitchen to bedrooms and bath everything you could think of was there, even some books if you finished the one you were working on lazily while sitting by the pool watching the colors of the mountains change. The beds and bedding lovely. Everyone was comfortable and slept great. We were there while the weather was warm/hot that was lovely for us, we enjoyed the dry heat. The house being in such a great neighborhood, safe and quite, I walked early in the morning and then again late in the evening under the stars met wonderful neighbors doing the same with their pets. It is truly a home away from home. I look forward to our next trip and would actually plan it around staying at this property again!
