About David McBride

I have been vacationing in Palm Springs since 1995 and have totally fallen in love with the vibe and beauty of this desert oasis. I was SO fortunate to find this incredible home last fall and have taken much time to create a truly fun and festive environment for my guests. The stunning grounds and the unique original 21 foot diameter round pool make the atmosphere vintage and hip while comfortable with all of the conveniences you'll need to experience a terrific Palm Springs Holiday!

David McBride purchased this house in 2012

The open floor plan and bright and sunny environment creates a truly fun and upbeat space for entertaining or unwinding after a fun day of sun, hiking or golf. The Central location is great for easy access to shopping night life and everything you could possibly want to make your stay memorable.

Long Weekend Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't not have chosen a more perfect home-base for our recent Palm Springs getaway. This property offered all we needed and more. The pool. BBQ and firepot provided the luxury of backyard relaxing and dining, while the location lent itself to easy access to downtown activities. We plan to be return!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

House is located about 4 miles from the downtown strip. Very convenient to stores and right around the corner from the airport. Contemporary modern furnishings, beds as ok but not extremely comfortable. The backyard was great and the neighborhood was quiet. Overall a very nice stay. Great customer service.

Owner's Response: To be exact the home is 1.8 miles from the center of Palm Canyon and Tahquitz Canyon, which is the Center of downtown Palm Springs. To state 4 miles is incorrect so for my future guests I need to set that straight. Beds are a personal preference thing. I got a call from a guest last month because they wanted to know what brand mattress was on the bed.... it was the best sleep he had in years! To each his own. Sorry you were unhappy. We don't get many 4 star reviews. We work very hard to make sure our guests have everything they could possible need for a great vacation and we are so proud of our property and the overwhelming 5 star ratings. We also note that we did not charge your deposit for the broken dryer door which required one hour labor and parts for repair.

Just What We'd Hoped For!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place for our group of four ladies to gather for a week! We really appreciated the authentic mid-century decor' - very cheerful and fun. You could not ask for a better patio with the huge variety of seating and lounging areas around the pretty pool...all the while surrounded by palm trees and mountains! We found everything we needed in David's home. It was an easy location - close to most anything Palm Springs has to offer.

Comfortable, well equipped, perfect for our getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay for a long weekend. The house was comfortable, clean, light and bright, and well equipped. The yard is generous and beautifully maintained, and we enjoyed the pool at all times of day and night. Best of all, it is quiet, something we had been wondering about since it is close to the airport. Dwayne the on-site property manager couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
