About Mark Hodgin

The Twist is designed for the self-catering traveler looking for a change from the hotels, featuring 17 vacation rentals appointed in true Palm Springs modernism located in the Uptown Design District of the historic Old Las Palmas neighborhood. Surrounded by a spectacular Mountain setting within walking distance to shopping, dining and art galleries in central downtown, The Twist is perfect for individuals, groups and events.

Why Mark Hodgin chose Palm Springs, Central

Similar to all the homes in the neighborhood, this building has an illustrious past. Each home has a connection to a past or present celebrity; whether it be Johnny Weissmuller, Liz Taylor, Madonna…

Via Lola started as a whiskey stash for Al Capone in its cavernous basement during Prohibition. Later, Don the Beachcomber opened his famous restaurant and the Rat Pack became permanent fixtures at the bar, lounge and pool.

Elegant, charming yet casual condo!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely divine property. Artfully decorated, with an open concept living and dining area with a walkout to a fabulous balcony overlooking the street as well the mountains. Condo is in a dynamic location, walkable to dozens of restaurants and shops and the energy of Palm Springs. My husband I enjoyed our vacation there and wished we could have stayed longer. We enjoyed the swimming pool at the end of every day. The staff were very helpful and extremely friendly.

Great location, but noisy

  • 3 of 5

Room 219 is likely the nicest room because it is private and has a large wrap around deck. The interior is nicely decorated, though, the couch is uncomfortable. The bed is comfy. The pool/hot tub are nice as well. The real problem with this unit is that it sits on the second floor above a coffee shop and a bar. Part of the wrap around deck fronts Palm Canyon Drive. It is always NOISY. If you are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. The music played all night long. Even long after the bar should have been closed for the evening, we could hear the pounding/beat of the music. We surmised that the cleaning crew or the coffee shop crew kept the music on after the bar shut down. We also heard pounding like on a metal bar. We don't know why. If we could have gotten sleep, this place would have been great. The location is very nice and it is a short walk to Downtown Palm Springs and all of the shops/restaurants. The neighborhood, Old Las Palmas, is beautiful to walk/bike. Mark was helpful. Sadly, the lack of sleep colors this review.

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

The linens and towels were super soft...not like your normal stiff hotel linens. The room was very aesthetically pleasing and the balcony was a major plus! There was a little mishap with the sleeping situation, but the owner gave us a partial refund for the inconvenience and one night free for future use before the end of summer.
