About the Property

Your Personal Second Home In The Desert

This beautiful mid century ranch home, custom built in 1955 on a .25 acre lot, is located in the quiet and serene Taquitz River Estates. This area features some of the earliest custom homes and largest lots that were developed in early Palm Springs. The home is very private – surrounded by lush walls of hedges. Entry to the home is through an electric gate from the street or a secured entry gate leading to the front courtyard.

The open living/dining area is accessible through French doors to the front yard with desert landscaping with an additional covered seating area and through 2 sets of double French doors to the patio/terrace and large landscaped backyard. The focal point of this living space is a floor to ceiling double-sided brick fireplace with glass flames. This area includes seating and dining areas, large flat screen wall mounted TV, Wi-fi , and a music system wired throughout the home.

The house is newly furnished like your own home with a stylish glass/Lucite dining table, mid century seating and attention to detail. It is comfortable and inviting.

The kitchen is updated and modern with spacious cabinets and Caesar stone counters. It is fully equipped with beautiful new glassware, china, serving dishes and platters, new gourmet cookware and all the items that you prefer in your own home.

The bedrooms are all private and in separate areas of the home. The master bedroom has a walk in closet, bath with shower over tub and French doors which open and overlook the back yard and pool. The second bedroom, accessed through the hall , has French doors to the side desert yard, a full wall of closet space and an adjacent bath with an open rain shower design. This bedroom/bath offers additional privacy from the rest of the home.

The third bedroom is adjacent to the kitchen, with French doors to the front desert landscaping and a small but functional bathroom with a toilet and shower. This bath also provides access to the back yard and can be used from the terrace/pool area.

Each bedroom has new high-end linens, plush towels, pool towels and all the requisite comforts for your stay.

The seamless indoor/outdoor flow continues to a large lattice covered terrace with seating and dining areas overlooking the huge pool- over eight feet deep. The rear yard contains custom patio furniture, beautiful lounge chairs, seating areas with umbrellas, a covered cabana, BBQ, and a large grass area with total privacy.

On warmer days, the misting system surrounds the terrace and dining areas for your comfort. In the evening, the landscape and the pool lighting create a casual resort feel for enjoying the beautiful desert evenings.

The south facing yard, pool and large in ground spa provide the backdrop to spectacular/mesmerizing mountain views as well as the hundreds of palm trees the city is known for. This property is a stunning example of how to live in Palm Springs.

At Casa Vista you will be greeted by our local host who will provide you with a tour of our home and will familiarize you with our property.

In many vacation rentals you'll find the garage to be "off limits" and others that do not stock paper products, soaps , detergents and propane for the BBQ. Not so at Casa Vista. Our goal is to provide our guests with the best possible vacation experience.

The home is conveniently located 5-10 minutes from the airport. It is a short walk/or drive to downtown shops and restaurants as well as all the world class Palm Springs area activities.

The property is within walking distance to the Palm Canyon stop for the "BUZZ", the popular FREE trolley service linking the property to/from downtown Palm Springs. The service operates every Thursday to Sunday from 11:00 am to 1:00 am at 15 minute intervals.

Rarely is a home of this comfort and quality available as a rental.

This home is available on minimum stay of 4 days. Additional days are prorated on a per day weekly basis.

There is a $200.00 cleaning fee and an optional fee of $50.00 per day to heat the pool in the cold months.
