About Linda Lockhart
I'm the daughter of the property's second owners, Grace and William Lockhart. My parents purchased the home in circa 1965. The first owner was Bing Crosby's brother Phil. I remember my first trip to our family vacation home in the mid 60s with our station wagon packed with goodies for our vacation home. In February 2012, at the age of 95 my dad passed away and now I own the home with my 89 year old mom. With the guidance of award winning designers, the renovation turned out more spectacular than I could have imagined. The kitchen is much larger than the standard kitchens in the Racquet Club Estates. The re-design included adding 5 feet to the kitchen and a long island to comfortably seat 4. It's important to me to have a full size kitchen with all the amenities and appliances that you would have in your own home along with. The kitchen is fully furnished including an ice cream maker and counter Kitchen Aid mixer. The master bedroom furniture belonged to my parents along with the great-room credenza, living room coffee table. The hanging lamps in the front bedroom and living room were stored in a closet in this house for over 20 years and were integrated in the remodel for their period correct accents but more so, for their sentimental meaning. My goal is to create a beautiful environment with appointments and decor that surpasses the expectations of the discriminate guest. Photo is of Mom, my son Brooks and me on vacation last year in Loreto, Baja California Sur.

Wonderful home for family of 6!
Beautifully maintained house with the best backyard ever! Owner was very helpful and quickly answered any house questions that came up. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely come back.
Beautiful house, just as shown in the photos
The house was perfect for our stay: great location, wonderful pool and everything in excellent working order. Would highly recommend it to anyone!
Resort-like backyard, well furnished, and in a great location
We stayed here as a group of seven over St Patrick's day weekend 2017. The backyard is perfect for lounging in the sun along with BBQ and two fire pits for entertaining. Its an extremely quiet neighborhood just over a mile from downtown. The mid-century theme of the house is very cool, and the owner is a very accommodating to specifics your group may need - we were a group of guys all looking for separate beds so she had it ready with rollaways. Be advised that the neighborhood/city doesn't allow any form of amplified music, so you will have to keep music to a minimum. I am considering staying again sometime with my family.
Beautiful home, amazing pool!
We loved our stay at Simply Palm Springs! The house was equipped with everything we needed and in a great location. The pool and spa were the highlights of the house for us, we spent as much time as possible there! Nothing beats going outside for a swim first thing in the morning when it's already warm out or hanging out in the hot tub late at night with a nice beverage. And the fire pit in the pool is not to be missed! We only had one small hiccup where the heat on the spa would not turn on for a few hours, but that was eventually resolved. The furnishings inside the house are stunning, absolutely beautiful, so many upgrades and high end finishing's. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic home, amazing pool, in the middle of palm springs, close to restaurants and downtown!
My wife and I along with another couple stayed here in early February for a quick getaway from the rain in Vancouver, Canada. We landed at Palm Springs airport at 3:30PM headed to the grocery store which is only 4 minutes away from the home and gave Linda a call to confirm our meeting time. She was already at the property putting the final touches for our arrival. We were greeted by Linda at the house. Immediately upon walking in, you feel relaxed by the ambiance of this home and pool and are amazed by the thought that has gone in to the renovations. The home shows better than the pictures look online. The kitchen is fully stocked, even with some necessities left behind such as spices, ice, oil, butter etc. The kitchen is massive and fully renovated to a high standard. The rooms were well appointed and bed were very comfy. All areas of the home were cleaned spotless.
The pool and built-in hot tub were the best part of this home. You can spend hours outside enjoy the patio, cooking in the outdoor kitchen and watching Olympics from the outdoor TV. We did find the pool quite cold this time of year without heat, so i would recommend requesting heat if you want to spend time in the pool during the cooler months. The built in hot tub was fantastic and took about 20 minutes to heat up whenever you wanted to use it. Linda can also remotely control the pool and spa if you are having issues, which help us request to turn on the pool heat during out last day of use without here even needing to come to the home.
Overall we felt our time here was too short, but we did sure enjoy the home and would love to return to the property for a future visit. Location and neighborhood was great and always felt totally safe.
Beautiful backyard & great location!
We found this home on VRBO the pictures looked just like the home. It was located very close to the airport 10 minutes or so! There were some planes that did fly over but it did not bother us. You have a beautiful outside area. Every room (3 bedrooms) walk out to the yard. The house is well laid out and very mid-century decor. The kitchen is modern and we did cook often. You could spend your vacation in the back yard if you needed relaxation or golf. So, many of courses available. There are some good restaurants and downtown Palm Springs is a short drive away.. There is a grocery store nearby . Really enjoyed our time here.
