Other Amenities

  • This property is like a small beautiful village in Mexico or Spain. It has a beautiful garden designed by Laura Morton Designs in Hollywood. The 1957 Lincraft trailer has two doors and it's own small deck - it is a lovely bar inside! Low-key, very private, magical! This is not your typical modern house rental. If you want to come to Palm Springs to watch flat-screen TV and sit in your sunken marble hot tub, this is NOT for you. This house is for people who want an exotic and relaxing magical place to visit with family and friends - like traveling back in time. Only a few blocks from hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars, dancing and old Palm Springs fun. ...moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: This husband/ wife (photographer / landscape designer) team wanted an escape from Los Angeles that felt like a simple cottage but offered an opportunity to to recreate the feeling of old Palm Springs with modern Mexican / Mediterranean flourishes-a Frieda Kahlo meets Luis Barragan private retreat. Enjoying the outdoors and welcoming friends to Palm Springs opened a new chapter of romance!

Why the Owner Chose Tahquitz River Estates, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
The mountain views are heavenly. And there was room to create gardens! the vibe is like going back in time to when Palm Springs was filled with Spanish Revival architecture like this home. A marvelous escape from daily drudge. Large pool, diving board, separate casita, beautiful redone tiled bathrooms, new appliances, French doors, walled and gated for privacy! Outdoor lounging areas surrounded in your private oasis.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Only 2 hours from Los Angeles or San Diego, this enchanting home offers beauty, privacy, good taste and is unpretentious. It is close to downtown. No phone, no tv -just a Crowley record player with a mix of old albums (of course we have high-speed internet throughout - we're not crazy! and a stereo system to connect your iPhone to). Plenty of parking, complete privacy among the four suites, great outdoor spaces to relax in sun or shade surrounded by gardens and birdsong (fire pit, pool area, fountains, 1956 Lincraft aluminum trailer bar (!) and more! Beautiful, tasteful colors and scents. Romantic and relaxed. It's an oasis from your real world. Close to shops, tennis, golf, hiking, bars and great food.
