About the property

4 Bedroom/3 Bathroom home with private pool close to everything.

This 1947 bungalow has been updated nicely while still maintaining a gracious floor plan and all the comforts of home. This home is situated in a very quiet street and is ideal for a relaxing getaway.

The entire property is enclosed by a privacy fence and is well landscaped. Once inside the gate you will find an inviting pool with water feature and plenty of space to lounge under the shaded porch or out in the full sun of the pool deck. In any event you will be treated to a great view of Mt San Jacinto while lounging at the pool.

Inside the Living, Dining and Kitchen all have a view of the pool, allowing you to pop in to refresh a drink or prepare lunch while keeping an eye on family members while they swim or lounge at the pool. The floor plan includes a TV lounge separate from the living room, but still visible thru windowed doors, so large groups can break up into smaller areas while not disturbing one another. The four bedrooms include a master with a king sized bed and attached private bath. Also on the master wing of the house is the first of three guest bedrooms featuring a queen sized bed with a bathroom just outside the bedroom door. On the opposite side of the house are two more bedrooms with queen sized beds and a third bathroom situated between them and just outside their doors. To increase the privacy and comfort of all guests, none of the bedrooms share a wall with another bedroom.

For entertaining, the kitchen has been remodeled and includes stainless steel appliances. The dining room table is expandable to very comfortably seat 8 for formal indoor dining and there is also a large table in the back garden for those who prefer that their large party dines al fresco. Coffee, breakfast or lunch can be enjoyed by smaller groups in the eat-in kitchen or at the poolside table.

The home features full amenities including pool floats, pool towels, full bed and bath linen, dishes (suitable for both indoor and outdoor use), outdoor propane grill, and pots and pans should you decide to dine at home. Also included is wireless high-speed internet, wifi and cable TV connected to flat screen TVs in the TV lounge and the two bedrooms on the master wing. Pool heating is also available for a charge of $50/day.

The home is located on the very quiet Plaza Amigo Street in the Movie Colony East/Ruth Hardy Park neighborhood. Should you decide to venture outside the property, it is a short 3 block walk to Ruth Hardy Park which offers plenty of green space as well as numerous tennis courts, walking trails, basketball courts, picnic tables and playground. Also within walking distance (less than a mile) is Palm Canyon Drive which features shopping, dining and entertainment.

The home is very comfortable for groups of up to 8, but at this price it is also great alternative for smaller groups where individuals prefer private bedrooms.

Finally, As a frequent VRBO guest in other locations I always appreciate an easy check-in process. In order to make your experience as trouble free as possible you will be met at the house and given a brief orientation of the house including its features and amenities when you check in. No worrying about finding a management office or getting keys after hours - this is your vacation, you should enjoy every moment of it. It will be your introduction to your local contact who can address any questions or concerns during your stay.

About David Ammann

I immediately fell in love with all that Palm Springs has to offer and bought this home only a year after my first visit. Ultimately I plan to spend more time in Palm Springs when I retire, but I just had to get my foot in the door and have a place to get an occasional break from the cold and cloudy Chicago winters until that day comes. So, just because I can't enjoy the sun and fun all year 'round doesn't mean the house should sit idle - please come visit and hopefully you will love it as much as I do.

David Ammann purchased this bungalow in 2014

What makes this bungalow unique

When shopping for a home it seemed that everything I looked at was just a little bit 'off.' The rooms were too small, or additions meant that bedroom windows looked into garages, or bedrooms were miles away from bathrooms. Then when I saw this house, which looks small and intimate from the front, I couldn't have been more pleased with the layout. It is large enough to have separate spaces, the bedrooms are pretty evenly sized and private from each other, the neighborhood is quiet and serene and of course the pool with views of the stunning mountains are the icing on the cake.

Clean, comfortable, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 7 members of my family. We had a wonderful time. It's comfortable enough for all of us. The house is located near downtown Palm Springs and a large park. We made a few of of our dinners at the house and all the utensils, pots/pans, etc were at our disposal, just like at home. One thing that usually annoys me is when rentals skimp on towels-the owners of this house made sure there were plenty in the bathrooms and that here were lots for the pool. The pool and yard area were great too. I would recommend this house for others interested in staying here.

An Amazing Time - Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great; met our expectations. Having the house rep (Ron) come and meet us when we arrived and explain everything was very nice. We took full advantage of the four bedrooms and the heated pool which was fantastic. Everything worked as described - there was even a full tank of propane handy when the BBQ tank needed replacing.

Our only note of caution - If you have kids, be prepared to keep them quiet due to a complainer owner on the one side of the rental property. Ron did let us know the neighbor was 'sensitive' but after 5 days of the kids in the pool we did receive a noise complaint. Just kids being kids but we didn't let it spoil our vacation by any means.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for three weeks in early February. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (there were eight of us in total - six adults, one teen and one toddler and the property easily accommodated all of us.) The pool and pool area are stunning and well-maintained, and we spent a lot of time outdoors either in the pool or lounging on the patio. The house itself is spotless, well-appointed, and the kitchen is fully stocked. The house is located in a residential and safe neighborhood. We rented a car (and would recommend doing so to anyone vacationing in Palm Springs), but the house is close enough to walk to town - my husband and I walked to Palm Canyon Drive most days for lunch and at a good pace, it took us about fifteen minutes from the Four Amigos property. Ruth Hardy Park is a short walk away and features a kids play area. We found the owner responded promptly to emails and Ron (the property manager) met us at the property, provided a tour and checked in with us to make sure we were enjoying our stay (and gave us great recommendations for the nearest grocery store and a kid friendly restaurant for our first night). We look forward to returning to this property.

This was our first trip to the four Amigos, we are four childhood friends that meet every year. This house was our favorite, it's decorated perfect for the movie colony, it was perfect for us, everything we needed was close by, the airport, grocery stores, and the downtown area was fun with lots of unique shops and restaurants. The house is well stocked and comfortable, we even had a barbecue one evening. We loved getting up in the morning and opening the shutters and turning on the waterfalls in the pool, and hanging out in the living room. We explored Palm Sorings during the day but loved coming back to sit around the pool to chat and laugh away the hours. In the evening we hung out in the living room and enjoyed a little tv and the lights on the beautiful patio.

We appreciated the shutters in every room, we felt safe and comfortable in this house. We plan to make the four Amigos our friends reunion every year. Two of our friends live in Oregon where it is rainy and gloomy this time of year, we all enjoyed the beautiful weather & mountain views in Palm Springs. Special thanks to the property manager Ron, he was great and informative, and always available if we needed him.

Thank you great trip.

Life is Great Fun!

  • 5 of 5

A return here for family reunion. This time was even better than before - if that's even possible. The January temps did not slow anyone down from enjoying the pool which they did for hours on end. The water temp was just right and the sun was warm. Sitting poolside with great views and enjoying watching the swimmers and the conversation of others. The kitchen was well stocked, fun games, tv, quiet reading spaces, very comfortable mattress, multiple choices of where to dine, sit, read, etc. We hiked the Andreas Canyon Trail on Indian Reservation Land for the 2nd time and highly recommend it. Ruth Hardy Park, just a short walk away had great play ground area for younger ones and tennis courts. Also great restaurants in town. Not to be missed is Sherman's Deli just to the South. Every need was taken care of by management.Thanks again. Can't wait to return.
