I can't emphasize what a great time we had at Michael's house. Not only was he a gracious and responsive host, but his house was absolutely beautiful. Great open floor layout, huge backyard, in a quiet, upscale neighborhood. The house was clean and fully stocked with amenities. We opted for a heated pool since we stayed in December and it was amazing. We also were able to bring our small dogs with us and they had an awesome time running around the huge backyard. The house is located very close to the center of Palm Springs and the neighborhood is very walkable. There is even a big park across the street. I can't wait to stay here again and highly recommend this property. Thank you, Michael!

A True Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a fantastic vacation rental. The house is so cute and clean, me and my girlfriends loved it. Some of the best things to have during the summer are a nice big pool, outdoor seating, bbq, ice maker on the fridge and good A/C...this place has it all and more! The fact the owner allows dogs is fabulous since for many of us they're our fur family members so being able to bring them was great. We will certainly be back. A few local tips...the park across the street is nice for an early morning walk with your dog; Trio restaurant allows dogs on the patio and doggy bowls; check out the cupcakes at Over the Rainbow.

Fabulous Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family was thrilled to find this property on VRBO for our recent stay. As we are new to VRBO, I read multiple reviews for so many Palm Springs rentals and this one lived up to all of our expectations.

The home is situated on a wonderful corner lot, with SO much privacy. The front yard is walled and gated (as is the yard surrounding the pool) creating a great and safe space for our three year old niece to play. The backyard is simply stunning, with a large pool, abundant patio space and even grass! Chaise lounges, an oversized umbrella and AMAZING zero gravity chairs make spending the day by the pool a breeze. If that wasn't enough - there are even pool floats!

Inside, the home offers every amenity that you could wish for - the standards, WiFi, cable, etc. - but there are even Apple TVs and fully integrated home sound, which make enjoying your music or shows so simple. The three bedrooms are very well appointed, and each being en-suite is a bonus when traveling with family.

If you a searching for an ultra private home that is located literally walking distance to dining and shopping - this is it! It is a true private resort experience, right in the heart of Palm Springs!

The house, AV equipment, pool, landscaping, views and location were ideal. The owner and concierge made our two month stay a true vacation. The layout of the house is perfect for entertaining large groups or as a quite retreat for a few. Could not recommend more and look forward to staying here in the future.

Trip of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

I turned 40 last year so I wanted to celebrate it with my closest friends in a place where we could make a week of memories that would last forever. I'd always wanted to go to Palm Springs and when a friend recommended this house I figured it was the Universe's way of telling me it was a perfect combo...and boy was the Universe right!!! Our week at this home was truly unforgettable, and there were more than a few moments when I had to pinch myself just to make sure I wasn't dreaming. My friends and I can't wait to come back!!!!!!!!!!!!
