The Citrus House is named for its many fragrant citrus trees, whose blossoms flood the grounds with their sweet scents during the spectacular spring months. There is a magical wonder about the house that one has to simply bask in to believe. Once owned by Darryl Zanuck, founder of 20th Century Fox, the Citrus House is a peaceful and comfortable oasis just steps from the wonderful downtown shopping and delicious restaurants. A word of warning though...it can be a tough property to leave :)
The comfortably charming main house features two large master bedroom suites. Through a short hallway off the beautifully appointed kitchen, the cozy bunk room (sleeps 4) includes a full bathroom, as well as it's own HD television. The Citrus House also offers 3 guest casitas, each with their own entrance - and each with a full bathroom, HD television, and tastefully designed furnishings. The three casitas are part of a separate structure which also features a view deck, where one can take in the majestic beauty of Mt. San Jacinto and the surrounding peaks.
The Citrus House includes a gourmet, state-of-the-art kitchen, ideal for entertaining and perfect for large gatherings. The large swimming pool and private jacuzzi are surrounded by comfortable designer outdoor furnishings. A large, covered, custom built wooden dining table provides an ideal setting for outdoor meals. Additional amenities include a traditional Bocci Ball court with nighttime lighting, an old steel cauldron outdoor fire pit circled by comfortable padded seating, a covered outdoor fireplace, a brand new outdoor pizza oven, a BBQ grill, 4 beach cruiser bikes, and 1 tandem bike.
Come, relax, and enjoy the sweetness of the Citrus House!

We were a group of 8 golfers in our 50s over to play a "Ryder Cup" match against 8 Americans.
We had an absolutely wonderful time staying in Citrus house and felt completely spoilt by the surroundings. The house has such a friendly ambience with lots of relaxing areas.
The owner, Malia, was so helpful and supportive in our hosting of our opposing team for a divine mexican meal delivered from over the road and a terrific barman too.
We hope to be back!
Perfect Palm Springs Family Getaway!
Our three families had an amazing time at The Citrus House. We are so thankful you shared your beautiful house with us. Everything is beautiful...the furnishings, the beds, the pool, the landscaping. We had such a great time we loved every minute of it!
Charming, private, beautiful fragrant garden, comfortable, great location
We stayed at this property for a family reunion-
5 couples, 2 children, 4 and 9. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by the smell of fragrant fruit trees.
Everything is very clean and comfortable. Yes, you will hear some traffic noise in the first bedroom when you go to bed at night but we didn’t find it a hindrance. The owner is super helpful and attentive.
The grounds and the pool are beautiful and private. The house is older but well maintained. Make sure you meet with the property manager when you arrive to walk through to understand the air con and any other needs or concerns- which are promptly and courteously met. We were so happy on property we really didn’t need to leave- we ate in every night! We would love to stay here again.
Stunning oasis of tranquility and relaxation. Once, you go through the gate you won't want to leave
This property exceeded our expectations. It was luxurious, quaint, well stocked, and well managed. We had no problems what so ever and the management was ultra quick to answer any questions we had. The grounds are absolutely stunning and spacious, the pool is beautiful, the kitchen is stocked with any quality cooking utensil you may need, the tv room is cozy, the outdoor pizza oven was such a treat to use, all the bedrooms have well maintained en suite bathrooms, we drank margaritas and had a family boccie ball , we walked to the park daily to play tennis and basketball, we biked to the street fair, and overall it was on of the best vacations we've had in years because of how great the property was.
Better than advertised.
This is an amazing place to stay if you like vintage, charming, cozy and comfortable.
Our family of 10 (3 families including 4 preteens) thoroughly enjoyed just "being there" for 4 days to celebrate out 50th wedding anniversary as well as Thanksgiving. We made good use of the pristine grounds including a beautiful heated pool, spa, bocce ball court and plush garden furniture. The house itself is very cozy and beautifully decorated in southwestern style. All of the bedrooms were comfy with their own bathrooms and everyone found a bed that was "just right".
Cooking Thanksgiving dinner in the spacious well-appointed kitchen was part of the fun, and serving it on the patio's large table which accommodated us all was even better. We did make use of the pizza oven but it's tricky; you need lots of wood to keep the temperature high enough for multiple pizzas.
All in all a very special place..we could not have enjoyed our time there more. Malia, Shane and Sylvia were most helpful and responsive . We highly recommend Citrus House to anyone who might appreciate an Old Hollywood "feel" with modern amenities.
Thank you so much for your kind review on our home. We are so happy you and your family were able to enjoy yourselves and create memories here. We would love to have you come again anytime, as you were such lovely guests.
Top of the top in Palm Springs
We had a great long weekend stay at the Citrus House. The owners were incredibly easy to work with and thoughtful. When we walked into the property, jaws dropped. It was beautiful. The interior and exterior decorations are beautiful and the house is incredibly well appointed with high end furnishing, great kitchen equipment, and everything you could possibly need. We had so much fun in the pool, using the bikes, and even attempting the pizza oven. We had the best weekend - I would highly recommend working with Malia and crew at the Citrus House.
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway & New Knotts Soak City Water Park. Plenty of great golf courses, and tons of shopping! Restaurants all close to our estate, and easy walking distance.
