Clean, retro rental

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a weekend at Eric’s property in Desert Hot Springs and had an excellent time. My exchanges with Eric were always very professional and his responses prompt (mine not so much…) The apartment complex has an awesome vibe and classic 60’s desert aesthetic, a nice view, and a well-kept pool. The apartment itself is clean, well-stocked, and impeccably decorated. My friend and I were both very pleased with the rental and would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Cozy Refuge in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

House & Garden 1952 , Playboy 1969, Whatever your speed, Eric has you covered in this lovely and immaculate 60's style studio, chockfull of playful period pieces, and attention to detail: comfortable bed and furniture, more than complete kitchen, fluffy towels, classy toiletries, i-device speakers, flat screen TV with HDMI, and a great view. We went across the street to the rejuvenating natural waters of the huge pool and jacuzzis at the La Bella Spa, and got to enjoy the best of both worlds. We hope to come back soon to visit this cozy corner of the world!!

hip,modern living exprerience

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for me. I am a solo traveler, going to Joshua Tree. Eric was a great host, his place is awesome. The space was as shown, very clean and comfortable. The location was great,10 minutes to Palm Springs and 25 minutes to Joshua Tree. Eric was great to talk to, gave me ideas about evening use hot springs for $5.00, artists folks in Joshua Tree, and Pioneer Town. I will definitely be coming back, I wouldn't change a thing.
