Desert paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

I took my wife here and surprised her with several of her closest friends joining us. This house was not only stunning, but provided everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. We had plans to do a lot of touristy things and only left the house a handful of times as it was perfect staying at the home and enjoying the pool, BBQ and the lovely space! We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this home!!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a fabulous girls' weekend here. The house is beautifully decorated and clean. We had everything we needed to stay in cook, and enjoy the large back yard, although it was just as convenient to walk to local restaurants. The beds were comfortable. We highly recommend this home!

Six ladies on our yearly retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful days enjoying the pool and grounds at this luxurious home. The house inside is beautifully decorated. We only used the kitchen for coffee and breakfast but it seemed well equiped with all the utensil you would need. We had chocolate martini's and to our surprise we found martini glasses. The beds were very comfortable and if we were ever return to Palm Springs we for sure will rent this home. We move to a different city each year.

The house comes with a book telling you about the house, restaurants and things to do in

P.S. We took suggestions for restaurants and were really happy. LuLu and Marisol (mexican).

We really enjoyed the pool mats and had coffee each morning on her patio sofa's.

In this case, the photos almost don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Oftentimes, real estate photos trick the eye, making you feel ever so slightly disappointed. But, our gaggle of girlfriends have been through our share of remodels and home builds, so upon stepping in the front door, we immediately knew it would not disappoint. Beautiful fixtures, accent pieces, and enough space for us, both inside and out. It was the perfect size for the eight of us, making for the perfect girls trips vacation rental.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying in this lovely property and would highly recommend it!!! Not only was the house set up wonderfully with tasteful decor but the outside space is incredible and it's where we spent most of our time! Having never been to Palm Springs in the dead of summer, we were unsure if we'd be able to enjoy the pool during the hot days but the pool was refreshing and we enjoyed the rafts at the house along with the floats we packed in our suitcases. The lounge chairs are perfect and the pergola and fire pit were a fun spot to enjoy each night. It was nice that the house had beach towels for our use and many nice small appliances for our use. Kim was also super easy to work with and very responsive to any questions I had prior to the trip. Thank you so much and I look forward to another trip back soon!

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything you could ask for in a vacation rental. It is beautiful, comfortable and well appointed. I stayed with 7 other women for a girl's getaway. It was perfect! Plenty of room to be together and yet plenty of private space when needed.

Kim was very responsive and easy to work with.
