Why Richard Cook and Chris Macaluso chose Twin Palms

We have been fans of mid century modern architecture for many years. Originally, we bought a mid century condo in the North end of Palm Springs in 2010. We vacationed there and rented it to vacation renters also. We loved it, but were ready for a new adventure. Now we're in South Palm Springs at Ocotillo Lodge.

We were attracted to this bungalow because of it's history, prime location with quick access to nature and the exciting night life of Palm Springs.

What makes this bungalow unique

The mountain views in Palm Springs are breath taking. Ocotillo Lodge is surrounded by San Jacinto mountain and the lower and southern hills . . . such pristine beauty. We have found the friendliness of the people at the pool brings a personal touch to being at the Ocotillo Lodge.

Awesome, cozy place!

  • 5 of 5

It looks just like the pictures. Very cozy; we loved the sun and just hanging out. Great location in Palm Springs. Very close to a good Ralph's grocery, so we used the kitchen a lot. We're coming back!

Very nice clean, well-furnished and conveniently located bungalow. The concrete floor with cracks and scatter rugs should be covered with broadloom.

Cool place for a desert vacation

  • 5 of 5

When you vacation in the desert, it helps to have a cool place to stay. This is a very cool place: love that coffee table, looking out at the mountains from the patio, lounging in that amazing swimming pool. Lots of very cool memories - hope to return.
