Property description

This private, gated Movie Colony home sits on 18,000 square feet of manicured grounds and is walking distance to downtown Palm Springs including Film Festival venues. We also provide 2 bikes for your use. It's an easy, flat ride to any part of downtown.

The home is perfect for 3 couples to relax and enjoy all the amenities. The bedrooms are well separated. All three bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, king size beds, and large screen TVs with satellite service.

The backyard is completely private with comfortable outdoor furniture. The pool and hot tub are newly refurbished with all the latest technology and lighting. In the evenings, the firepits on both sides of the hot tub add to the luxurious ambiance and well lit landscaping. Open the walls of glass for the complete indoor/outdoor Palm Springs experience.

The chef's kitchen is large enough for multiple cooks and stocked with everything you need to create your own culinary delights, including a gas grill on the patio. If you decide not to cook, we can help you arrange a private chef to prepare meals for you. We enjoy making pancakes or waffles on the weekends so you will find a large pancake griddle and waffle iron in this well-stocked kitchen. Of course, we also have an electric kettle for our Canadian friends.

The house has wireless internet access and a printer with a copier and scanner.

With the easy access to the pool, this house is not suitable for families with young children.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I grew up in Southern California and both spent vacations in the desert as children. We have wonderful memories of those times. Throughout our married life we have continued to spend holidays and vacations in the desert and really love the area. We have lived in Seattle for the last 16 years and now that we are empty nesters we spend the winter in Palm Springs.

Why the Owner Chose Ruth Hardy Park, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
For years we stayed with friends and at hotels in various desert cities. About 7 years ago we decided Palm Springs was our preferred city. We love walking to downtown and the village feel and friendliness that grows from having a city center. We looked for a home of our own for 4 years before finding this wonderful property. The Movie Colony has always been a favorite neighborhood of ours and when we saw the property we knew right away we had found something unique. The private setting and setback from the street make it the relaxing retreat we were looking for.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As empty nesters, we wanted a home that has room to entertain and invite friends for weekends. The separation of bedrooms is perfect and enables everyone to have privacy when desired. We love the grounds and all of the special little areas you will discover as you walk the property. It feels like a different world with each corner you turn. We are certain you will enjoy this amazing retreat as much as we do. Jayne and Warren Spector
