This is a great spot for a visit to the desert.

  • 4 of 5

The living room and kitchen are really lovely, beds comfy, shower hot. The pool was beautiful and the perfect temperature as we asked them to turn on the heat. The casita is adorable and outdoor dining perfect. There is useful info on the area and some fun games. The only negatives: It is noisy as it is near the airport, one bedroom fan made strange noises and there was light from the street. We could have used more towels. That said, we would stay again!

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

We brought five teens here, my daughter, her two friends, her host brother from France, and his friend from Switzerland. They swam, made meals together with us, and took the tram to do a six mile hike. The house and casita were perfect and relaxing. We want to return again to have a reunion!

Awesome house and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this place for staff members who were coming from all over the country to work Dinah Shore Weekend. They were shocked that we would out them up in such a great house! Definitely a great place for a large group and has enough space for everyone to be comfortable. The team loved the decor and sleekness of the house. The pool area was fantastic and gave us a quiet refuge away from the zaniness of the festival. Also, the owner was a fantastic communicator! From the beginning of the inquiry through the end of the stay, she stayed on top of communication and helped us with info whenever needed. Needless to say, we would rent again!

Dreamy weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

The communication, property management and house were top notch! Incredibly designed, warm and inviting - this house was every bit as dreamy as the pictures make it out to be, and more. Had 8 friends and my dog up for the long Labor Day weekend and we had zero complaints! Can't wait to get back to this perfect getaway home.

PERFECT weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

5 STARS!!! Don't miss out on renting this incredible home!!!! The pictures and description does not do this house justice. I celebrated my 30th birthday with family, friends, and boyfriend this past weekend, and it was very memorable partly due to this beautiful home. Homeowner Katie was very accommodating and friendly throughout the rental process. She answered all my questions promptly and was incredibly helpful and patient. Upon arrival Thursday afternoon, we were met by Todd (property manager) who gave us a tour of the property, the rooms, and how to set the AC and tv's. 3 rooms and 2 full baths in the main house PLUS separate casita/studio (where I stayed at) with its own bathroom and kitchen that overlooked the pool. I woke up in paradise every day this past weekend!!! This home is also pet-friendly (we had a small Corgi-mix dog) which is a RELIEF because other properties were not as lenient when it came to pets. It's a short drive to Downtown Palm Springs where we ate out for din (Thai House Restaurant = yum!) and went clubbing (Copa = fun!) Friday night. The tv's had Hulu and Netflix set up, and the living room had plenty of games for everyone to play (Connect 4, Cards Against Humanity, deck of cards, etc). The kitchen comes fully stocked with dishware and appliances, and we made great use of the grill. The pool includes some inflatable tires and noodles. However, the view from the hammock can’t be beat. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The house easily accommodated 10 people overnight (living room had 2 queen pull-out beds, bedding provided!) and then more during the day when I had a BBQ and pool party Saturday. A few of my local friends said that it can get pretty windy, so I’m glad that we came at a good time where the winds weren’t strong. The home borders a main street, but I felt safe and secure. There were plenty of parking in the U-driveway and curbside. I am so impressed with my overall experience with this home and the homeowner. I can’t wait to come out to Palm Springs again!!! THANK YOU, KATIE! :D
