About John C. Weber

Full time resident in Dallas, TX, I travel to Palm Springs to relax in the beautiful weather, enjoy the gorgeous architecture and take in the views of the scenic mountains.

John C. Weber purchased this house in 2013

Why John C. Weber chose Deserts

I purchased our home in 2013 after traveling to Palm Springs on a yearly basis to visit good friends. I fell in love with the home due to its modern architecture, brand new construction, gated golf course community with restaurant and close proximity to all Palm Springs has to offer!

What makes this house unique

I enjoy the outdoors and the community features of our home and Escena. Whether it is just sitting in the pool/hot tub enjoying the mountain views and sunset or walking over to the Escena Lounge and Grill, it is truly a relaxing place to call home.

Fabulous Palm Springs vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent several months enjoying John's beautiful home in Escena. The house has a wide open floor plan, high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows which makes the place feel airy and full of light. It is beautifully decorated, with artful details that make it unique. John was a perfect host, and could not have been more accommodating. Everything you need for comfortable living is included, from kitchenware to linens and even bicycles to ride around the lovely neighborhood..The yard, with a private pool and spa, are inviting on hot days. This is the perfect place for a relaxing Palm Springs experience.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in this beautiful home in August 2015. The home was just as it appears in the pictures - no surprises! Very clean! All the appliances, furniture, beds, and decor seemed very new and high end. Very comfortable! The area is very quiet and we really appreciated the safe feeling of being in a gated community. Pool area is lovely. Nice shade in the morning to sit outside and watch the hummingbirds at the feeders! Sunny in the afternoon but there are two good sized umbrellas for shade as needed. Centrally located in Palm Springs so it was just a short drive to all the major attractions, restaurants, and shopping. Bikes were nice to have but we didn't use them much since it was so hot during our stay. We felt very at home at this property. In case you have kids who bring their favorite movies, there is no DVD player so we bought an inexpensive one for the length of our stay. Would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Lori, Thank you so much for your review! I am glad your family had a fun time for the month! I really appreciate the feedback on the DVD player. We have the smart TVs and the RoKu so we always use that for videos but I will be sure to get a DVD player for those who prefer that! Please let me know if you guys are ever interested in coming back for a stay. You were a terrific guest! Thank you John

Incredible home, exceptional host

  • 5 of 5

As others have said, coming into John's home is an amazing experience, champagne was out, all the lights were on, it felt very homey. The house itself is beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture and super clean. Location is wonderful, close to everything but just far enough away from the crowds to feel like your own private little resort. John is a fantastic and responsive host. Definitely recommended.

Love, Love, LOVE!

  • 5 of 5

I searched through dozens of houses before coming across this property. This is not your typical rental. It is the owners' personal vacation home as well, and it shows in the attention to detail and design. The house is beautifully yet comfortably furnished, with a very open living room that looks out to the gorgeous yard and pool area. It is light, airy and chic. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is an outstanding new grill outside. The pool is fantastic (if you go during the winter, pay to have the pool heated. It is so wonderful!). The pool area gets lots of sun and has a great view of the mountains. The bedrooms are, like the rest of the house, chic yet comfortable. The owner, John, is super-nice and responds immediately to questions and sets you up with instructional videos for TV, Roku, Pool/Hot tub and fire pit. So helpful!

We have stayed in many homes in Palm Springs over the years and this is by far our favourite for sure. It is very well situated so close to everything.

The owner is so professional to deal with and very sweet always leaving us treats to get us started.

Love, love, love!!

Wonderful Experience At this Modern Home with All the Necessities ... and a Pool too!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to work for a month in Palm Springs to see if we might someday like to live there full time. What a wonderful experience we had! On arrival, John Weber, the owner, had set out a display of flowers, champagne, chocolates and a basket of toiletries that we used over our entire visit. The firepit was lit, the pool lights were on casting a nice glow and the spa was heated and waiting for us. What a wonderful welcome!

The home was clean and the appliances were all new and in great condition. Though working in Dallas John was quick to respond whenever we had a question about the house. In the month we lived there we loved being able to jump in the spa in the middle of our workday to relax for a moment.

We were amazed that everyvtime we needed something for cooking or entertaining we found it in the house somewhere. One really nice perk were the bicycles that were left for our use. We really enjoyed biking in the neighborhood and beyond. All in all we had a great experience.

We definitely recommend this home to anyone!

I am glad that you were comfortable, had everything you needed and enjoyed the bicycles. The neighborhood is perfect for a relaxing ride! You were terrific tenants and I hope to see you back in Palm Springs in the future!!!
