About Stephen A. Wald

We're from the Seattle area, retired entrepreneurs, who love projects.

Joan has the artistic inspiration, Steve does the driving...both share the heavy-lifting required to transform the mundane into the marvelous.

Stephen A. Wald purchased this house in 2011

Why Stephen A. Wald chose Palm Springs

Sunny Palms was the right size at about 2000 square feet, became available quietly, and called out for a complete transformation. So the question wasn't 'Why This Property' but WHY NOT.

What makes this house unique

Sunny Palms has a remarkable warmth, breath taking mountain views, is within easy reach of downtown Palm Springs, and direct connection to all the varied activities available constantly in the Coachella Valley.

Clean Property, easy to work with owners

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely property with beautiful views. The house was super clean, and had everything we needed very comfortable stay. the pool was clean and landscaping was very well taken care of. Grocery store is only a few minutes away and very convenient location to downtown. I liked how Steve sent detailed information on how to operate everything in advance and has local help, should you need assistance. We had a couple of hiccups during our stay, but Stephen and Stacy were very easy to work with, very accommodating and I felt satisfied with the resolution he offered. Wonderful property, quiet neighborhood don't miss out!

Great house for family or group of friends!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, six adults and a baby, just spent the Christmas holidays at this terrific home. The house is spacious, comfortable, has a real homey feel and was very clean. It has a kitchen stocked with everything you would ever need to cook and entertain. The very private backyard is gorgeous with a pool and hot tub and the view of the mountains is amazing. Steve (the owner) and his daughter Stacy were a pleasure to deal with and made sure we had everything we needed including a high chair and pack and play for the baby! I highly recommend this property and I will definitely stay here the next time my family comes to Palm Springs.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Private backyard with a pool and hot tub. Only 5 minutes from the airport and town is a mile or so away. Great location! We had two couples on a golf trip so we didn't even use one of the bedrooms. Good for families. Looking forward to coming back next year.

We had a great time, my husband, my 90 year old mother and our 2 miniature Schnauzers. We had an amazing week in Palm Springs. The house is roomy, comfortable, quiet, beautiful patio and pool, great location, 7 minutes from downtown. Stacy and Stephen were wonderful, gave us a warm welcome, tour of the house, great tips for restaurants and things to do. They also send us by e-mail all the instructions on how to operate the pool, Jacuzzi, televisions, lights, appliances... Everything was very detailed and explained upon arrival. We visited the Aerospace Museum that is incredible, the Art Museum is a must see, visited 5 casinos and other towns in the neighborhood. Everything worked perfect!

We will definitely be back at this house. It's not only a 5 star house, it's a 5 Diamond house

We highly recommended it!
