*AUTHENTIC OLD CALIFORNIA SPANISH STYLE PRIVATE & GATED HOME*

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Vista del Monte (View of the Mountain) is a totally private - walled and gated authentic 1940's hacienda-style home. The home evokes the romance of early Palm Springs and the history of early California ranches. It is located a stone's throw away from downtown Palm Springs.

The home was restored by San Francisco-based designers' Candra Scott and Anderson. Candra Scott and Anderson specializes in the restoration of landmark hotels and properties throughout the world. The home has appeared in the book PALM SPRINGS LIVING.

The completely refurbished property contains original period pieces. Furnished with authentic vintage pieces from the time; Monterey, Del Rey, Karpen, and early Navajo rugs. The original wrought iron light fixtures and original art create an atmosphere that is unique and distinctive. Vintage decorative tiles from the Victorville Armory have been used throughout the kitchen, bathrooms, and exterior fountains.

The attention to detail not often found in a rental property, usually in a five-star hotel. The property has three bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two twin beds) and wonderfully appointed bathrooms containing Waterworks fixtures and Molton-Brown bath products. The property is large enough to sleep six, yet intimate enough for a romantic hideaway for two. The backyard invites one to lounge underneath grape covered arbors, relax in the saline pool, or enjoy playing a lively game of Bocce on the regulation size (10' x 60' court).

HOME AWAY FROM HOME - BUT BETTER!

  • 5 of 5
Time simply stood still at Vista del Monte. We had the most relaxing and wonderful experience and it was over too fast. The beautiful interiors in their authentic Mexican decor were so well done and comfortable. The pool and outdoor space was awesome and truly charming in every way. We cooked almost all meals there as we didn't want to leave. We can't wait to go back!

SPRING BREAK GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Vista Del Monte was wonderful. The house was perfect, the attention to detail of restoring this home to its original roots was amazing. The landscaping of the home was beautiful and well thought out and the pool was great to hang out and read and relax. Brandon was wonderful to work with as well. We will be back!

INCREDIBLE GETAWAY HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing! The online pictures really don't do it justice. My husband and I were there with our college age son and daughter, and we all had to force ourselves to leave each day to go out and explore Palm Springs! It's the perfect house and setting for a totally relaxing getaway. The patio/pool area was probably our favorite part of this beautiful home. The cool, arid breeze combined with the incredible mountain vista made for wonderful evenings together cooking out, swimming and playing bocci. We have fallen in love with the whole Palm Springs area and couldn't have chosen a more perfect place for our stay - just wish we could have stayed longer! Brandon is so easy and pleasant to work with, and his property manager, Barbara, was great as well. We can't get back there soon enough!

A GREAT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I loved our two weeks here. The property fronts onto a busy street but is separated from that by a wall, and the house is charming, comfortable and convenient. The pool area behind the house is delightful---very spacious and private, with many different sunny or shady places to hang out, a great BBQ, great plantings including lovely lemon trees and even a small patio-cactus garden off one of the bedrooms! The owners have clearly paid thoughtful and careful attention to detail in their restoration of this property.

PERFECTLY LOVELY AND COMFORTABLE...

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful experience! We spent two nights at Vista Del Monte with our grown grandson and granddaughter. This was our last vacation with just the four of us, as our granddaughter is on her way from her home in Hawaii to a new home in Texas where she will be married soon. Our stay together will be a wonderful memory forever.

The house is absolutely perfect in every way. The design details and execution are beyond exquisite. It is a quintessential old California Hacienda style home. You can literally spend hours drinking in the furnishings. We particularly admired the little desert oil painting in the headboard, the vintage leather chairs in the living room, a special oil painting in the kitchen of a Mexican marketplace, the pottery, the early wooden travel albums, the siesta men (especially the one in the corner cabinet with his face turned upwards towards the room) well... pretty much everything! But, perhaps just as important, the home is so comfortable. Every need and desire has been anticipated. From the luxurious linens to the new, clean kitchen utensils, and everything in between, we felt we were at a five star hotel - only better!

The owner, Brandon, is a joy to work with and could not be more pleasant and accommodating.

Would we recommend this property to a friend? We just did!

PERFECT! BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED WITH HISTORIC INTEGRITY, CHARM, AND LUXURIOUS COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Brandon. It was one of our best vacations – the house was perfect. Not only a congenial floor plan, great kitchen & grill, warm pool and astonishing mountain backdrop, but to our surprise and delight, every historic artifact in the house was authentic! We love history, and to find the hacienda not only restored but furnished with historic integrity was amazing. I've always dreamed of being locked in overnight in a museum, and voila, you made it happen! Even scrapbooks with old photos and family recipes, and Zane Grey novels. We didn't want to leave.
Your hospitality was the icing on the cake. I've rented many houses, but never had an owner so solicitous of our well-being. I apologize again for setting off the alarm not once but twice - hope that wasn't a record.
If we ever return to Palm Springs, and I hope we will, Vista del Monte would be our first and only choice.
