Why Todd Cintron chose Deserts

As an Interior Designer, I wanted to own a property that was architectural and remained true to the original integrity.

What makes this house unique

The home is in close proximity to downtown Palm Springs, yet far enough away to enjoy peaceful relaxation. The koi pond with waterfall will help you do just that...

Wonderful winter vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Pleasant neighborhood. Authentic Palm Springs style. Well maintained. Comfortable beds. Best of all is the great back yard! Lovely pool. Pool guy came twice a week and did a good job. Babbling brook and koi pond water feature added to the relaxing ambience. We stayed a month and enjoyed it a lot. Only the throw rugs in the kitchen and living room need cleaning.

Wonderful, stylish house is the California desert!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful house for 4 days recently and had a terrific time. The house is impeccably maintained and staffed with very friendly, helpful management. Located 5 minutes from downtown, we were able to Uber to restaurants in the evening or take a quick drive into town for day trips. The neighborhood is quiet and tranquil.

We have added this house to our list for future stays and we are looking forward to our next trip!

Thanks Todd we really enjoyed our stay at you're home.the property was super clean we enjoyed the back yard at all times,from having morning coffee to barbequeing in the evening. It was nice to be so close to the mountains also they are literally right out the front door.The pool was great also nice to cool off after going on our morning hikes.

Thanks again for everything John and Gem

Lovely Escape in PS

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 adults stayed in this lovely home for 4 nights earlier this month. The remodel is quite nice. The backyard is truly beautiful and peaceful. The only suggestions our well- traveled family would make is to supply more basic items for the guests...i.e., kitchen trash bags, a full roll of paper towels in kitchen, and a couple rolls of toilet paper per bathroom. Otherwise, a great place to stay! Highly recommended!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a property. We absolutely loved the backyard with koi pond and lush landscape. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen perfectly equipped, and the bathrooms came with lovely lotions and soap. The pool was refreshing and there was enough space for all of us to lounge comfortably. The location is super close to everything. I highly recommend this home!

Comfort Zone

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this classic Alexander home was like spending time at our own private resort. The house had every amenity anyone could want or need, including plenty of towels for the pool ready to grab and go from each bedroom. Everything was extremely clean and the beds were so comfortable, with plenty of pillows. The living room area is open has more than enough room for a family or group of friends to watch a movie or just kick back and relax. The glass doors and windows along the backside of the house make it feel as though the pool area is simply an extension of the indoor living space. There was an outdoor shower, a koi pond abundant with lively fish, and a unique fire pit that provided cozy warmth after a swim on a cool desert night. The view of the snow-capped mountains from the outdoor lounge area was breathtaking. This was our third trip to Palm Springs and was by far the most enjoyable. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and went out of their way to accommodate our needs and make our stay one to remember. Can't wait to return!
