About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

K0018 Casa La Vista City ID #2659 TOT Permit ID #3085

Casa La Vista is perfectly located in the trendy Vista Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs, is a flawlessly updated and expanded three bedroom, two and a half bath mid-century modern home. Envisioned by famed architectural team Palmer & Krisel and brought to life by the Alexander Construction Company in 1959, this home has one of the most breath taking panoramas in the neighborhood. Nestled on a silent cul-de-sac, you’ll be in awe by the views of Mt. San Jacinto while you relax in the expansive west-facing backyard.

Having been passionately remodeled inside and out, you will see that this “Butterfly Alexander” has had every detail been meticulously paid attention to. You’ll immediately feel transported back to the hip and classic 1950’s all the while enjoying the conveniences that the 21st century has to offer, such as a newly redone kitchen, bathrooms, windows, pool and spa. Settled in over 2,500 square feet of this home is a roomy master suite with an expanded private bathroom and two more cozy bedrooms, so you will have copious amounts of space to relax.

For your own comfort, there is lush and stylish seating available for you to lounge upon while you view your favorite shows on the mounted HDTV. If you are entertaining a large amount of guests, they’ll surely be impressed with the grand space that blends inside with the outside with an easy slide of the massive glass wall. Your visitors will be amazed of the mountain landscapes they can view from the backyard while they frolic in the pool and spa.

Newly equipped with a saltwater swimming pool and spa as well as an outdoor shower with an adjoining bathroom, the backyard is the perfect setting as your own private retreat to enchant your friends and family. Grill up a storm with the natural gas barbeque while your guests gather around the fire pit, large dining table or the bountiful selection of lounge seating available to you.

With the dining room, breakfast room and laundry room nearby, the kitchen is one of the most striking features in this amazingly redone home. Channel your inner chef in this spacious, open kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances, breakfast bar and a built-in premium coffee station. In the connecting dining room, you can easily seat eight guests while enjoying the view of the mountain landscape, pool and backyard.

Located at the north end of the home is the master suite which houses a king bed surrounded by inviting clerestory windows and private patio. Situated en-suite is the expanded bathroom which features a stunning “wet room” style walk-in shower and soaking tub and twin vanities with just a wall of glass separating you and a private desert garden. Just a short walk down the hall are two guests bedrooms equipped with a king bed and the other with a queen bed, as well as the guest bathroom with a walk-in shower for your comfort. Ceiling fans and mounted flat screen TVs line the walls of all the bedrooms. And recall that for further convenience there is also the pool bathroom and outdoor shower available to you.

For your added luxury, there is a built in smart phone controlled sound system as well as a two car garage.

Surrounded by all the contemporary opulence that this home has to offer, it would come as no surprise that you’d never want to leave! However, if you truly want to experience all that Palm Springs has to offer, head downtown which is less than a mile walk from your doorstep and an even shorter bike ride or drive. You’ll find yourself charmed by the dining, shopping and views that our sophisticated and upbeat city has to offer.

Come stay at Casa La Vista, baby!

Although we enjoyed our stay - there were issues I would not want to experience again.

  • 3 of 5

Although overall we did enjoy our time in Palm Springs and the house overall was nice - basic rental. There are a few issues you might want to be aware of before you rent:

There was no hot water in the unit when we arrived. Thankfully maintenance came the next day to adjust - seems there was a power outage at some point which in turn effected the water heater, the sprinklers (which were also an issue but fixed) and some fans & lights in the rooms.

Master Bedroom:

We were unable to turn the light on or off that was part of the overhead fan in master bedroom (which meant that our first night we had NO fan because of the light) again fixed the following day.

Lack of light in any of the bedrooms or the entire unit itself, so you may want to bring some extas.

Master Bathroom:

A number of lightbulbs were out

One of the Master sinks had no running water & again no hot water

Master shower - both overhead shower heads had little to no water

and the side water heads did not work - they were clogged.

The maintenance crew fixed one of the shower heads and but not the other’s and the sink finally had water flow but no screen to control it.

Guest Bedroom (across from 2nd bath)

Overhead fan light would not go on. So lack of light in room. Again it was fixed but light was still an issue.

Front Hallway

out of the two wall sconces - one did not work - no light


Items in kitchen - i.e.: glasses and plates where NOT clean when we arrived, but were on the shelves.

The placemats were so dirty we had to clean them before use.

The refrigerator has water/ice on the exterior - BUT when you try and use the water - the warning indicator comes on that says REPLACE WATER FILTER - so really you cannot use it to drink from !!! You would think this would be a routine replacement.

Outdoor back yard

Minimal to no light in the evening - a problem and very dangerous

Outdoor sprinklers went on 2 times in the mid afternoon while we were outside, reading and with our computers. So both books and computers got wet. The sprinklers not only water the grass areas but the seating areas/ lounging areas etc.

Front Ext. of House:

Minimal to no lighting in front

Difficult to find light switch for the ext. light around garage

Great getaway in Vista Las Palmas

  • 4 of 5

This was a great property in a great location and we really enjoyed it.

The home was clean and all the amenities were in good working condition (except for the range hood over the stove, we couldn't get the light or fan to turn on). All new kitchen and bathrooms were nicely appointed. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels, but way too much bleach was used to wash them. No one wants harsh chemical bleach smell or residue on them after showering!

The saline pool was perfect.

We were not thrilled with the nearby home construction noise, but thankfully they didn't work on the weekend.

There was a beetle infestation happening, which was not fun but it's the desert, so there's not much one can do about that.

All in all a great home and would stay there again because of the great location and peaceful neighborhood away from it all.

Beautiful House in GREAT location

  • 4 of 5

This place worked great for my girlfriends and I. The pool was a great size, the home was very spacious, the bedrooms were very large, and the beds were very comfortable.

The hot tub was a little complicated to figure out with the remote and the shower in the master bedroom didn't work al that great. Lots of shower heads and only a few of them worked. All in all however it was very nice home.

Thank you!

Great location with lots of space in both the house and the yard.

  • 4 of 5

Great location with lots of space in both the house and the yard. The basics of this house are there and we enjoyed our stay. The indoor furniture is lovely and functional. A few small things would make this property a 5 star - like a little more kitchen gear (e.g., large knives, tea towels), a few nicer pillows for sleeping, some nice pool towels, new outdoor furniture as the existing is stained... We had a few issues and the property managers did respond related to pool, plumbing, and entertainment system. It was disappointing that the property company wasn't a little more proactive but, again, over all the stay was enjoyable. We stayed for two weeks and the neighbourhood was lovely for walking and it took about 20 minutes to walk downtown. Loads of things to do downtown with a great meal at Dish. Our best meal was at Le Paon in Palm Desert (40 minute drive) - service, food and atmosphere was excellent.

A magical desert oasis in the heart of Las Palmas

  • 5 of 5

Casa La Vista was a perfect place for our annual girl's weekend

The house was clean and offered all amenities needed to enjoy the surroundings

We found ourselves enjoying the pool and backyard for most of our stay

Highly recommend this house
