wexler house was clean. No view of the mountains from the backyard and the pool area was tired

  • 2 of 5

We just never felt comfortable at the house. The master bedroom was the warmest in the house and none of the bedrooms had TVs. The outdoor pool area was very small with no view. I would not stay at the Wexler house again.

Elegant, tranquil oasis

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a peaceful, handsome neighborhood, the house is just as elegant as the pictures suggest (and bigger). Our party of seven had plenty of space and found everything we needed for cooking up a storm and mixing martinis by the batch. We had no problem making some serious meals in the well-appointed kitchen and enjoying them by the pool (which we chose not to have heated for the week and the temperature was completely fine for us). Everything was in working order and great condition.

The location is perfect for exploring Palm Springs and its environs, and the San Jacinto and Joshua Tree parks: Steve, the concierge, gave us plenty of spot-on recommendations for places to eat and drink and things to see and do. Grocery stores are just about walkable. The circular driveway provided ample parking for our three cars.

The owner checked in by email when he heard the city was resurfacing the street, just to make sure everything was okay for us, but the friendly neighbors had already given us a heads up.

Search "The Wexler House" on Instagram to see how much we (and others) love the house.

We LOVED the Wexler House!

  • 5 of 5

What else can I say? The house was fabulous. It looked just like the pictures, but it was bigger than we expected. Every room is large; the master bedroom alone was bigger than most NYC studio apartments. The cabana off the MBR (with sofa and Apple TV) was the perfect retreat from the midday sun. The kitchen was well-equipped and big enough for a few people to work in comfortably. The indoor/outdoor dining choices were easily accessible to the kitchen. The decor was period-faithful, with mid-century details that were on point but never over the top. The only negative any in our party of 6 could come up with was that the refrigerator door didn't open quite wide enough - a highly manageable flaw in an otherwise outstanding rental experience. We didn't want to leave!

Great times - family of six. We hope to be back.

  • 5 of 5

The location and the property was excellent. We had never been to Palm Springs before and we had a wonderful experience. We have four children and we all took advantage of the relaxed and laid back pace. We also enjoyed the various spaces of the house and the pool any time of the day. Having Apple T.V and two televisions was great! We were all able to have enjoy our own movies, shows and Netflix. The house was very clean (very important), lots of towels and fully equipped kitchen.

The owner was great to work and made booking very east!! Steve (concierge) was great and met us at the house when we arrived. He went over house keeping items and filled us in on places to go - restaurants, grocery stores, downtown market, etc. The management company, landscaping company and the pool maintenance company were excellent. We had an minor issue with water collecting by the screen door and the management company had someone out there within 30 minutes to address it.

I highly recommend this house and has plenty of space for two families.

Thank you!

Beautiful, classy home

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at this home, beautifully decorated, with lovely views of the mountains in the best neighborhood in Palm Springs. I stay in a lot of rentals in PS, most of them are cheaply put together, not this one, you could tell that a lot of care and love went into this home. Has everything you need, well stocked kitchen, could do with some more plastic cups/plates for around the pool though. Great entertainment system, we loved that the kids could chill in the outside terrace area and listen to videos on the Apple TV, while we relaxed and watched a movie inside. The beds and linens were so comfortable, bathrooms were well stocked and super clean. We did have a plumbing issue, two of the toilets backed up, while there, but we called maintenance and they were on it immediately and sent their cleaning crew out too. The owner also called and checked that everything was taken care of. A good stay, all in all, I will definitely return

Wonderful, warm, comfortable home in beautiful neughborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a beautiful stay at this gorgeous mid-century modern home, set in the gorgeous Deepwell neighborhood.

This home is wonderfully decorated and has everything anyone could want while staying there - from utensils, blenders, coffee makers, to pots and pans, trays, serving bowls, etc....the home had everything we needed - and they are quality items, lots of Crate and Barrel, no cheap stuff here!

Would definitely return to this lovely home again and again.
