One of my favorite houses in the desert

  • 5 of 5

I LOVED Desert Stars. A small mid-century house with an enormous back yard with a saltwater pool, a Jacuzzi, fireplace, a BBQ and many lounge chair areas. We spent most of the time in the pool and swam. The inside of the house had concrete floors and was well decorated. Everything worked perfectly and it was central to town. I would stay here again!

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was very comfortable, very clean. The backyard was so much fun and perfect for day time and nighttime activities. I would recommend it!

The one thing we couldn't figure out was the volume on the TV's in the bedrooms. It was either very quiet or very loud, and it kept adjusting on it's own, it was hilarious.

Either way, this house was a great place to stay and I would love to stay here again, if ever in Palm Springs for another trip.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a couple of days around Christmas. This was a clean and spacious home for our party of 3 adults and one child. Since it was colder we decided to pay extra for heating the pool, which made a big difference for us to be able to swim. I would stay here again if we will visit Palm Springs again.

Pool House Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax in full palm springs mid century style. Really has everything you need from a tv in every bedroom to a gas bbq and pool and jaccuzzi, my family and I had a great time and felt bad for not exploring the city more. The location is also nice, just a two minute drive to up town bars and restaurants.

We had a great time staying at this beautifuly renovated home. It was centrally located to grocery stores and downtown. The backyard was a modern oasis complete with fire pit and spa. Hated to leave Palm Springs but look forward to returning to this house.

Mid Century Gem

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! As mid century architecture lovers we appreciated the design elements and it was very comfortable for our family of four. The pool floats were a big hit with our young daughters and the privacy of the back yard was a hit with us. We also loved using the fire pit under the starry skies. The house was impeccably clean and had all the linens, towels and kitchen items that we needed. We hope to stay here again the next time we travel to Palm Springs.
