About Susan St. Louis
I grew up in a small town in Connecticut, and married my college sweetheart, who is a doctor. We raised three girls, homeschooled them, coached youth soccer, and now spend our time studying languages, cooking meals for friends, trying to stay fit, and volunteering for medical missionary trips whenever possible. We have used VRBO properties many times, ourselves, and we find it a much better way to travel than to stay in hotels. We hope you will enjoy staying in our beautiful new Palm Springs casa.
Susan St. Louis purchased this House in 2013
Why Susan St. Louis chose Warm Sands
Casa de Colores (House of Colors) has been lovingly decorated with all new furniture, beautiful art and accessories in the colors of the desert to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable and unforgettable. Each bedroom has its own outside door, with high quality wooden shutters that completely darken the rooms when fully closed. All linens and towels are new, and will be regularly replaced as needed, to ensure comfort and satisfaction. The living room opens onto the front courtyard, with its mountain views, and allows you to 'bring the outdoors in with you.' The game table in the living room nook will lure you to find out who has the best poker face. Full sets of dishes, pots and pans, cooking utensils and basic supplies will provide you with all the things you'll need to cook as much or as little as you desire. The pool and spa will draw you to spend time in the back yard, but you will also have three separate lounging and eating areas there in which to spend your time. Whether you are one couple, a large family or 2 or 3 couples vacationing together, you will never lack for comfortable, private places to sit and talk. We want this house to be the best place you've ever vacationed in, and we will continue to try to make it worthy of that label.
What makes this House unique
When we saw this house we fell in love with the quality of the construction, and the wonderful architectural elements like the round windows in the front entryway and master bath, the foyer tower, the arched entryway and front door, the colored tile floors throughout, and the exquisite wooden beams and cathedral ceiling in the living room. We also really liked that each bedroom has its own bath and exterior door. And many of the attractions of downtown Palm Springs are within a short walk!

Everything we need
This is our second time staying here and we still love it. This house is well-appointed, clean, and close to everything. The owner is quick to respond to any inquiries.
Thanks, Lisa - it's becoming a nice tradition that you bring your family to Palm Springs for the holidays. I guess the kids love playing in the pool in the middle of winter! Please come again - you are wonderful guests and always welcome.
Everything we could ask for in a vacation home and more
This is a beautiful home full of great furnishings and artwork. The kitchen was well stocked with pantry items and plenty of dishes and glassware. We enjoyed both outdoor sitting areas in front, and back by the pool. The heated pool and spa were wonderful, and how lovely to have access from the master bedroom. All bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable. We look forward to staying here again.
Thanks, Susan - so glad you enjoyed your stay! Please do come again. You'll always be welcome!
Thank for a comfortable, relaxing stay in Palm Springs!
Thank you for such a nice week in Palm Springs! Welcoming, comfortable, and a great location for all that Palm Springs has to offer. We the beautiful Palm Springs weather in your back yard, relaxing in the pool and jacuzzi, enjoying coffee in the morning on the patio and even a nice out door dinner to the dismay of your California family who felt is was too chilly. Not to the Colorado folks who left snow! We loved lay out of the home and attention to detail throughout the house. Walkable to town, the bagel shop and easy access to the numerous bike routes in Palm Springs. Susan, thank you for being such a gracious, caring hostess! It was a pleasure to meet you.
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay! I can understand how lovely our November sunsets must be to folks from colder climates. I'm glad that you enjoyed your outdoor dinner! I hope that you'll come again. Stay warm!
Totally pleased with the home.
Everything pictured is just as expected. This is our second year staying here and we hope to return again. It is a lovely home and we enjoyed our stay.
We have been impressed with how clean everything is and the bedding and bathroom supplies are perfect. We grilled steaks on the grill and they were perfect.
We did have an issue with the TV reception, but Susan helped to get it resolved in the main TV in the living room.
We did continue to have problems with the TV reception in the bedrooms.
It was not too important to us, so we did not pursue the issue. I'm sure they would have addressed the issue if we had asked.
Otherwise, I cannot think of a negative thing to say. We loved our stay and hope to return next year.
Beautiful home and a great stay!
There are too many remote controls without clear directions for every room and every TV. I think guests move them from one room to another and it causes problems with the TV reception as a whole in the home;
This is a minor issue that can be worked out. This was a very Minor Issuje;
We loved the house, the location and the owners.
Thanks for the kind words, Karen. I'm sorry that somehow the TV input got switched and made it confusing for you to figure out how to get picture. I will take your suggestion to label the various TV remotes to reduce confusion when guests carry them from one room to another - good idea! And we'll be happy to host you again next year or any time.
Great location, great house & pool.
The house is as described and in pictures. Well equipped kitchen, lots of towels and very clean. Great location, near downtown, but quiet. Lovely pool and patio. We were travelling as an extended family (Four adults, one four year old and one infant). The doors are alarmed, so we didn’t have to worry about the four year old getting in to the pool without supervision. We had a couple of issues (plumbing etc.), but Susan dealt with them promptly and graciously. We hope to return soon.
Thanks, Jay, both for your nice review and for being such great guests. I am so glad that all three generations enjoyed the pool and house, and I do hope that you'll get a chance to return again soon!
We loved having this gem of a home away from our home to celebrate an anniversary and milestone birthdays. Very welcoming from the hostess communication to the decor and amenities to the refreshing pool and jacuzzi. The home is peaceful but close enough to find great places to eat, shop or listen to live music. Everything was simple to find and we immediately felt comfortable. Thank you for sharing Casa de Colores.
I'm so glad that you could get a real rest here at Casa de Colores - you deserve it. And how nice that you were able to celebrate two important events here! It was great to meet you and your husband, and I do hope that you'll come stay with us again in the future.
Most people come to Palm Springs for the unique combination of outdoors living, recreational activities, and cultural richness to be found here. From the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, which draws top music and comedy performers due to our proximity to Los Angeles, to the lively arts community, to the hundreds of golf courses, tennis courts, and country clubs to be found in the Coachella Valley, we are certain that Palm Springs has something for everyone. And the many events that occur each year in our valley draw interest from around the nation and even the world - the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, the BNP Paribas Tennis tournament, the Humana Challenge and Kraft Nabisco golf tournaments, the White Party, the Palm Springs Film Festival, the Tour de Palm Springs bicycle event, and many more. But in addition to all of that, if you want to vacation in a place where you can simply rest, sunbathe, lounge by the pool and rejuvenate yourself, our house will provide the indoor/outdoor Palm Springs living style that you are craving.
The areas of southern California within and surrounding the Coachella Valley abound in great outdoors adventures. The base station for the famous Palm Springs Aerial Tram is about a 15 minute drive from our house. The largest rotating tramcars in the world take you from the valley to the San Jacinto Mountain Station, at 8,516 feet of altitude. Also nearby (about one hour by car) is Joshua Tree National Park, perhaps the premier rock climbing mecca of America. Joshua Tree, named for the amazing and weird versions of the yucca plant that grow only in that area, is also full of wonderful hikes and stunning driving tours. Big Bear Lake, with all the summer boating, fishing and swimming activities, and both alpine and downhill skiing in the winter, is only 2 hours away by car. The attractions of Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego are all within a few hours away by car.
