If you are looking for rest and the comforts of your own home, look no further.
Beautiful 1940's Spanish adobe hideaway nestled in a beautiful private south palm springs neighborhood. Spectacular Mountain views from the private tiled courtyard with a custom pool and jacuzzi. All the tranquility that Palm Springs has to offer, yet minutes from the downtown village if you feel like going to town.
You will instantly feel like you are home as soon as you walk through the door of this quaint charming villa filled with antiques and old world appointments. And you will never want to leave the enormous master bedroom with its own sitting area and views onto private poolside patio while you enjoy fresh picked fruit from the citrus grove right on the property!.

I have several properties in Palm Springs and enjoy hosting all the wonderful guests I've had over the years.
Steven purchased this House in 2004
Why Steven chose Tahquitz River Estates
I fell in love with this house on a fluke driving by. It was for sale in 2004 and I just stopped in to look because it had such cur appeal. I felt relaxed and at home the minute I walked in. Next week I was the proud owner. I have several vacation properties in the desert, but I love staying here whenever its not rented to you!!!
What makes this House unique
Peaceful, quiet, mountain views and several great restaurants within walking distance. I love making fresh juice in the mornings right from one of the 5 amazing citrus trees in the yard. Grapefruit, Oranges, Tangerines and Lemons!!!

Didn't want to leave!
Loved the courtyard and spent most of our time there. It's just a beautiful as the photos. I would stay here again!
Such a relaxing weekend in a beautiful home. It felt like I walked into an old friends home, comfy, cozy, and as though I had been there my whole life. The proximity to everything is awesome, even walking the neighborhood was fun. The only disappointment was having to leave, but we will be back.
cozy, private getaway
The house was clean, comfortable and perfect for 4 adults. We spent most of our time in the backyard by the pool and hot tub, and with flowers in full bloom. We walked into town in the evenings. We ate twice at the Ace Hotel just down the street, a hip-happening Place with great food. Steve was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this place for sure.
thanks so much for your nice review!!
I'm not one to take the time to write reviews but rely heavily on them when making a decision. I felt it important to take the time this go around. In simple terms, this place was perfect for everything I needed. Incredibly comfortable, great location, and an excellent owner. The pictures don't do it justice to say the least. Great kitchen for entertaining, the oasis patio area a complete gem, and the bedrooms were of complete comfort. Oh, and if you want peace and quiet, this property is in a quiet neighborhood and feels like a retreat getaway. Something out of the countryside of Italy. So with that in mind, if you are looking to get away from it all, having a relaxing experience, and be in complete comfort, this is the place for you.
Thanks Steven, I will be back!
Rip, so glad you enjoyed yourself!!! Come back any time!!
We loved our stay. The house and yard were lovely. The house was nice and everything I expected. Next time we plan a trip to the desert, we will book this house again. Very relaxing.
Glad you had a great time!!!
We stayed at the Spanish Villa for two months in January and February 2014 and were very disappointed. Most distressing were the desert rats that regularly awoke us most mornings as they jumped onto the roof over the master bedroom to reach the overhanding fruit. The owner thought this normal, but black rodent boxes and rat dropping in the fruit tree area gave me the willies. The pool was inoperative for 14 days of our stay because of a problem with the bearings in the motor. And the place was not as nice as it appears in the pictures. One of my worst experiences!
Small rodents can find their way onto a property in the desert, especially when the trees are in blossom or full of fruit. Like all the good resorts and hotels in the desert, I employ an excellent pest control company that places traps hidden in the bushes outside the house to capture any desert rodents in case they wonder onto the property.
I was glad they could come out so quickly to check when you reported you heard a noise on the roof and fortunately they found no evidence of activity. But I was happy to have them come out to check in order to be sure you felt comfortable. They continue to regularly monitor the property throughout the year to be sure there are no problems.
It was unfortunate that the pool motor stopped functioning during your stay and I wish the parts for repair didn't have to be ordered, but was glad it was working for the majority of your stay and that the pool man kept the pool clean the entire time. Fortunately you indicated you were not trying to heat the pool on a daily basis.
I was glad to offer you a $200 refund for the inconvenience.
While only on VRBO for a year with this property, I've been fortunate to consistently have it rented to travelers since I acquired the property 10 years ago. So many of them have been repeat visitors and come back multiple times. I've enjoyed getting to know all my guests and always strive to be sure the property is well taken care of and any issues that arise are corrected quickly.
