Ruby Montana migrated to Palm Springs, Ca. in 2000 after purchasing a small boutique hotel called Ruby Montana's Coral Sands Inn. Prior to living in Palm Springs, Ruby was a resident of the wonderful Seattle, Washington, and had a store there for some twenty years. Ruby Montana's Pinto Pony in Pioneer Square was a kitsch Emporium that held everything from a Corbusier sofa to an invisible dog leash. Whack and wonderful. Ruby sponsered the National Spam Contest in Seattle for 10 years and was featured in People Magazine and on Jay Leno with regard to it...interviewed every February by 100s of radio stations internationally about the whacky contest. Ruby went to The University of Michigan and received a degree in Music. She majored in the French Horn and it managed to pay her way through college. Ruby was born in El Reno, Oklahoma, and is a pie baker. Ruby has a deep regard for animals and a passion for rescuing small dogs. In April 2013 Ruby formed a 501(c)3 called Ruby Montana's Pie in the Sky Animal Rescue. She saves 100s of dogs a year from certain death by fostering them and then placing them in homes. Ruby began baking pies for Trio Restaurant in order to meet the costs of rescuing a dog from a shelter. Each dog costs in the neighborhood of $200 to rescue. Her pies were always in such demand at Trio that she started Ruby Montana's Pie in the Sky Pie of the Month Club. Ruby had 50 members at last count. Her Let the Sunshine Lemon Meringue Pie is so popular at Trio Restaurant that it is generally sold out before 7 p.m. Ruby Montana's Coral Sands Inn sits close to Rancho Las Palmas and they work beautifully for hosting larger groups of people...reunions, weddings, retreats, golf getaways...you name it. Ruby loves the Old Las Palmas neighborhood that Rancho and The Coral Sands are located in. They are situated just around the corner from Liberace's first home where one can still find the original grand piano mail box. Incredible
Ruby Montana purchased this house in 2014
The Old Las Palmas neighborhood was developed in the mid-1920’s by New York builder Alvah Hicks and his son, Harold. Today, Old Las Palmas is recognized as one of the premier locations in Palm Springs and many of the older estates and homes in the neighborhood are being updated and given the love they deserve. Formerly a citrus grove, Old Las Palmas sits against the backdrop of the beautiful San Jacinto Mountains.
We had the most wonderful weekend in this amazing Mid-century house. So well put together - effortlessly chic, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a perfect weekend escape. A well-stocked kitchen with essentials, Pool, Outdoor BBQ area, and an amazing view of Mount San Jacinto. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. They have really created a beautiful space that where you can relax, sit back, enjoy but also has that a very familiar at home feeling. Well done and we will definitely be back for more!
We escaped to Palm Springs with 2 other couples for the 4th of July weekend. The house was the perfect size for all of us, including a small child. It is beautifully appointed, has an incredible outdoor living area with pool, BBQ and lounge spaces. The owners are friendly and hospitable and the view of the mountains is divine. We can't wait to go back.
This is the perfect home in Palm Springs. Location is amazing, we walked to downtown and Starbucks everyday. The view from the back yard and swimming pool is amazing. Overlooking the mountains. The home was perfect for our group of 8. Décor was great and very comfortable. Ruby the owner was fantastic to work with. We will be back !!!
Spent a week at Rancho Las Palmas earlier this month as part of a family reunion. Las Palmas accommodated us perfectly. Four couples, four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Very comfortable bed - which is an important factor for me. No matter the weather this place was great as we could eat inside or out. Kitchen was well supplied with great pots/pans and serving dishes. Pool was heated and well maintained. Very quiet neighbourhood but within walk of Old Town Palm Springs and all the neat shops and restaurants there. Property provided privacy with a great view of the mountains and the landscaping was very nice. Loved the polished cement floors throughout which were easy to clean during the week.
Only suggestion would be to have a larger table/chair set inside for when we were all there at the same time for a meal - but not a big problem as the beautiful oak table had a leaf insert and chairs could be pulled from other areas of the house. Loved the decor and the simplicity and functionality of the place. Look forward to being here again.
What a wonderful vacation spot for a multi family reunion- Quiet, comfortable, away from the hustle and bustle of urban life and with lots of space for get-togethers to share memories and hopes and dreams for the future. Beautiful views of the mountains and spectacular gardens. Walks or bike rides around the neighbourhood and then hanging out around the warm & wonderful pool were enjoyed by the whole gang. Shopping in the downtown area was fun and a short drive or walk away as well as grocery stores were within a 1/2 hr walk . We all took turns cooking and preparing delicious meals in the well equipped kitchen. Several sight seeing adventures to Joshua National Park. Desert Hot Springs. local museums, Pioneer Village and Eidleweise are a must. Activities you might want to take part in are Pickle Ball, Golf, Thursday Night Market, Aquafit or the Gym at the "Y" in Washington Ave and a concert at the McCallum Theatre. This was a gathering that we want to repeat sooner rather than later. Thanks to our Son, our host, for sharing your beautiful rental home with us. Thank you Ruby, the booking agent, for helping with organization and planning of our holiday. May we all LIVE large, LAUGH lots, and LOVE many until we meet again. Mom & Dad
This is a lovely quiet spot. It is spacious and immaculate. The kitchen is well supplied. I particularly enjoyed the pool area and found the landscaping with the many varieties of cactus fun to identify.
We enjoyed the walks in the neighborhood where beautiful homes are plentiful. Also, the walk downtown was just the right distance and jogging through the community, safe with very little traffic. Bikes are also available.
Grocery stores are very close and the pickleball courts a 15 min drive.
It is ideal for a family or 4 couples. We had come together for a family reunion and we had plenty of room for cooking, sharing and downtime when a rest called to us!
We would definitely love to return!
Oh, yes, I must not forget to tell you, Ruby, the booking agent, is so helpful and a delight to talk to!
