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

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.

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.

Peaceful retreat from crowds.

  • 4 of 5

Loved hanging out in the nice cool and well upgraded unit when the temps jumped up into the 120's. The pools located all thru the Villas were so great. Easy access to Palm Canyon Drive and south into downtown.

Our Palm Springs Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to this place for three years and love it as a home base for our Palm Springs escape from Winter! We've already booked our fourth for 2017! The owners are very thorough regarding instructions for everything and they answer emails promptly when I do have a question. Their wifi setup is simple and I have all of our devices linked to their network within minutes of arrival! My wife appreciates the comfortable queen bed and the blackout curtains in the bedroom. Okay, so do I! The pool, a short walk from the front door, is very nice, too. It's definitely a smallish space, as are most of the units in the complex, but more than adequate and well-equipped. You can't go wrong staying here; it's centrally located to Downtown Palm Springs, the airport, and I-10 so it's a great jumping-off point for golf, hiking, tennis and unparralled scenic beauty!

Not the best experience

  • 1 of 5

They said close to pool. Yes, but they all are. They didn't mention your view is the parking lot. Pictures make this unit look good, but it isn't functional, no where to put anything. My main issue is they said wifi but when we got there, there was no direction on where the security code was and we emailed the owners several times and they never responded. We also tried calling them and there phone doesn't allow you to leave a message. Over all a disappointing stay.

Owner's Response: Jerry, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and although it is the first poor review we have had for 3 condos on 2 rental sites. We take all reviews seriously, therefore I feel it is best to break this review down and focus on the facts. "Close to pool, but they all are"-for every unit that faces the pool there is a unit behind them that does not. There are also several buildings without pools. "View is the parking lot"-the condo is close to the parking lot which is convenient for many who prefer a short trip for suitcases and groceries but the patio has a view of the San Jacinto Mountains and tram. "Isn't functional"..."No where to put anything"-your rental term was for 5 days, we have had renters for 2 months without complaint of storage or functionality. "No direction" (wifi)-Jan/05/16-the day you booked, you were invited to the VRBO Hospitality Manager application explaining that all the information you needed for the condo will be in the app; Feb 2/16-you were automatically re-invited to the app by VRBO; Feb 4/16-I personally re-invited you to the app after you sent an email (your only email I received) asking how you gain access to the condo. In that email and 3rd invitation to the app, I included the address, lockbox code, a statement saying if you have any issues accessing the app to let me know and as a courtesy I invited you to check in 3 hours early. At no time did you say you had a problem downloading the VRBO app and at no time did I receive an email asking for wifi instructions. "emailed owners several times and they never responded"-the only email I received was the one mentioned above on 2/4/16 at 6:27am. I responded 2/4/16 6:51am-14 minutes later. There were no other emails sent as confirmed by the VRBO dashboard and VRBO representatives. "we also tried calling them and their phone doesn't allow you to leave a message"-I checked all calls to my cell phone before/during and after your 5 day stay and there were no calls from your number, in fact there were no numbers on my phone that were unfamiliar to me. As a side note, we have many guests leave voice messages and correspond by text without incident. Again, you are entitled to you opinion and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay but honesty is a value we honor, hence our response. Respectfully, Louise and Robert
