About Steven

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!!!

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property located in a very quiet residential area of Palm Springs. It is very convenient for shopping and restaurants in Palm Springs. The home has a lot of charm starting with the Spanish motif. It is nicely decorated with comfortable furniture. The kitchen is full equipped and the bedrooms are comfortable with good beds. The best part of this property is the backyard. Its a quiet oasis with a brick patio, lounge chairs, and a dining table with chairs. The pool is on the smaller side but very adequate. There is also a hot tub. We enjoyed the pool tremendously since it reached 104 degrees during our stay. Part of the pool always had shade for those who don't like to be in the direct sun. It is a beautiful place to relax surrounded by brightly bougainvillea and tall palm trees in the neighborhood. The flowers attracted hummingbirds that drank from the waterfall in the pool. There are also orange and lemon trees on the property. All the arrangements were handled without any complications. The owner Steven was very responsive. We had a wonderful long weekend there.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
