About Joe

Greetings! I'm a Green Building Professional. My partner and I own many of the homes we've listed on here and have remodeled them ourselves as sustainably as possible. Recently we've gone 'pro' by starting Green Palm Springs Rentals LLC. As such, we've agreed to manage a couple of additional very special, green properties that we think you'll like as much as we do.

Our goal is to provide you the home base for an enchanting vacation, and we hope to have the honor of welcoming you to a fun, green vacation home soon!

Why Joe chose Vista Las Palmas

Green Court in Palm Springs' famous Old Las Palmas neighborhood. You will love strolling the prestigious neighborhood of estate homes after a meal, walk or bike to shops and restaurants. It's a private self-contained sanctuary that is only five minutes from the exciting downtown and uptown cultural activities and nightlife.

What makes this house unique

This home has many sustainable/eco features including lots of warm LED lighting, eco/saline pool system, and environmentally sensitive soaps and cleaning supplies. You deserve a luxury getaway without toxic exposure and without all the guilt.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stop searching. This is the one. The pictures of this castle are phenomenal, but walking through the front door is breathtaking . This house is decorated with art and furniture that is second to none. I visited with several other couples for coachella and our stay could not have been better. From a kitchen with everything you could imagine needing, to a serene and transcendent pool and jacuzzi. This place is 10 out of 10 in every category!! Thx Joe!!!!

Great house with all the comforts you need for a respite in Palm Springs!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our three nights. Here to celebrate a special birthday. Would highly recommend the house which includes a lovely pool, jacuzzi. We even used the tennis courts briefly! Coriey was very helpful by meeting us upon arrival. We hope to return.

Good property overall

  • 4 of 5

We loved having a pool, spa and tennis court on the premises. We used them every day. The decor was not as cool as I hoped for. They are trying to do the whole retro funky 70s, which was only partially successful and not really my style, but the kitchen was nice and the home had everything we needed.

A beautiful property but filled with electrical problems. We needed to call

  • 3 of 5

We needed to call property managers everyday with power outages, spa never worked and there is no ball machine! If you are paying all this extra for a tennis court, it might be important to you.Also hidden charges at the end even after having problems.

Owner's Response: Fortunately, I have never had to post a response to a mixed review before, but I do feel compelled to comment in this instance. If you plan to bring and concurrently use multiple hair curlers (as opposed the using the provided hair dryers which work fine), you might trip the breakers. Solution is to use the curlers at different times or in 2 of the bathrooms that are on different circuit (twice); we can tell you which after this unfortunate incident. FYI, the ball machine works fine if you follow the instructions to only use the provided orange pressure-less practice balls, as regular tennis balls can jam the machine. Unfortunately, this guest didn't report that they jammed the machine until the end of their stay, so we didn't have time to get it repaired for their enjoyment. We didn't even charge them to repair the ball machine or for the late evening electrician visits (2). We did, however, charge them for the missing Bose portable speaker that we bought and placed in the house just prior to their stay, so I wouldn't exactly call that "hidden". My mother taught me never to say anything negative about anybody for any reason. Sorry Mom.

Terrific family gathering for Holidays

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, well situated and well cared for. Beds and pillows are comfy, and kitchen is well outfitted for cooking and entertaining. Managers went out of their way to make us comfortable and address any needs we had. They even got us a Christmas tree in advance of our visit so we would have a beautiful one to decorate (we arrived just before Christmas and were concerned there would be none left)! Besides the obvious perks of the tennis court and pool, the Arrive hotel down the street enabled us to grab a drink or meal out without driving whenever we wanted. Truly a great stay!

Miss it already!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely house - finding one as spacious as this with a tennis court as well as a lovely salt water pool is not easy and this one did not disappoint! In fact the pictures don't do it justice as it looks even better in person. Another great point is the location as the local town was a 5 min drive. Us kids also loved the extra space in the guest condo as a place to watch tv and escape the parents! 😂

2 weeks was not enough - would recommend this place to anyone! 😀

Thanks joe!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my husband's 40th birthday and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place. It's in a great area where we could walk to ice cream, drinks, or just look at some houses or the mountain. Liberace's house is a couple doors down. :) Very quiet neighborhood.

We stayed by the pool a lot, but there were spacious common areas inside too. The kitchen was wonderful for cooking large meals together and had a great supply of pots, pans, dishes, etc. There were plenty of pool towels and floaties to lounge around on. The tennis court is amazing and well stocked with rackets and balls.

The bed in the casita was so comfy and I liked to wake up and see the pool from our room. Everyone had a great time here. I highly recommend it.
