About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This perfect vacation getaway is located in the serene Palm Springs Villa 1 community, nestled amidst palm trees and ponderosa pines yet just 4 minute drive to downtown Palm Springs.

This cozy hideaway is adorned with Bob Willoughby photographs depicting the Platinum Years of Hollywood. You will find yourself sipping martinis with Monroe and The Rat Pack, closing your eyes with Hepburn, Taylor, Garland, Brando and The Duke and showering while Sir Sean Connery turns his head.

Sliding glass doors open to a majestic view of the San Jacinto mountains and the deck holds comfortable club chairs inviting you to sip coffee and enjoy your morning paper or savour evening cocktails while playing your favourite game or reading your favourite novel.

Only one wall is shared in this end ground floor unit making it quiet and easily accessible. There are no stairs to climb and it is only a few steps to the parking structure or one of the 5 amazing pools and spas within this beautiful complex.

This bright and airy interior was stripped and completely renovated with new paint, stainless steel appliances, new double kitchen sink with trash disposal, enjoy 2 showers (one is never enough), classic subway tiled shower with a corner seat, mosaic tiled bathroom floors, new bathroom fixtures with glass vessel sink, pergo floors, efficient central AC and stocked with everything you need from home.

We invite you to be one of the first to enjoy this distinctive sanctuary.

About Robert and Louise

We are Canadians now living in the warmth of the California sun and it goes without saying that California has 'warmed' not only our bodies but our souls as well.

We chose this amazing location in Palm Springs because of the serenity, beautifully landscaped grounds and wonderful neighbours. When it is not being rented, we spend time doing exactly what our guests do, relaxing, going downtown for dinner, and floating around the pool.

So come visit our little desert retreat and sooth your soul Palm Springs style.

'Warmest' regards,

Robert and Louise

Robert and Louise purchased this condo in 2011

Why Robert and Louise chose Palm Springs, North

Incredibly quiet complex, perfect weather, one of five pools/spas only steps away, parking structure only steps away, on-site 24hr security (just in case), 5 below ground level tennis courts, quiet neighbours, and of course... the heat...ahh

What makes this condo unique

Quiet lower end unit; HDTVs in the living room and bedroom; blackout curtains in the bedroom encourage those sleepy mornings

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice cleaned and cozy Condo

  • 5 of 5

I planned a last minute trip to Palm Springs, made contact with Louise and Robert. They were very accessible and answered all my questions. The place was very comfortable, very cleaned, organized and very well equipped, kitchen ware, towels, AC which was a most for the weather of 103 degrees. We had access to wifi, pool, telephone, cable and movies. It is very centrally located to downtown palm springs about 5 minutes away. The facility has tennis courts and accessible parking. The grounds were super quiet and cleaned. We had a very nice stay at this place.

Condo by the pool

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo hosted by Robert and Louise. Louise was very responsive when I contacted her regarding a couple of small issues. It's a small condo but we knew that going into it. It's in a great quiet location near enough to the pool to easily walk over every morning for a swim and to use the hot tub. We loved our vacation in Palm Springs and enjoyed all the fun things Palm Springs offers.

Quiet Relaxing Stay in Beautiful Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks (January/February) in Palm Springs in this lovely, playfully decorated, comfortable condo. We enjoyed the very quiet well-kept grounds with heated pool and hot tub, neither of which was crowded during our stay. The ground level patio was a great place to enjoy an afternoon cocktail and watch the sun fall behind the beautiful snow-capped mountains. We particularly enjoyed our sunrise walks to the tramway visitor center where the golden sunrise illuminates the mountains. We found the unit well-appointed with helpful notes placed in strategic spots. The check-n was effortless and the very friendly owners answered the few questions we had by return text in a matter of minutes. The condo is far enough from the downtown to be quiet yet close enough to drive in a few minutes. We were awestruck by the beautiful 1000 palms oasis, the tram car ride, the Joshua Tree National park and the stunning pines-to-palms drive, all of which are easy day or half day trips. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing time in a comfortable condo in beautiful surroundings, I highly recommend staying here.

Hollywood decor condo

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Palm Springs villa condo and liked the unique Hollywood black and white decor. It was well kept up , affordable and convenient to downtown Palm Springs. We would suggest getting the tight front door fixed and adding a dish washer to the kitchen. All and all a good value.

Quiet, clean, near tram

  • 5 of 5

This did the trick for us as a base for a San Jacinto hike via the very nearby tram! I'm a light sleeper and I slept fine. Many helpful instructions and labels provided. Owners pleasant and responsive if you have a question after not reading all the instructions, like I did :)

We booked this last minute and did not regret our decision! This place is awesome. The owners could not have be any more hospitable. Super clean, quiet, just a few steps from an amazing pool! This is the perfect place. Can't wait to go back. Thank you Louise.
