Born in Havana-Cuba moving to the USA in 1969. Grew up mostly in the South Bay of Los Angeles County graduating from Mira Costa High School in 1975. Have lived in Manhattan Beach, Torrance, Long Beach, Bakersfield, and now Palm Springs. Hospitality has been my carrier since my first job just out of high school. Now enjoying life to the fullest and sharing a piece of Paradise with my guests.

Jorge Martinez purchased this apartment in 1996

Being in the Hospitality Industry all my life I long dreamed of owning my own business where I could provide deluxe, comfortable, and personable but yet private accommodations for travelers from all parts of the world. Since the late 1970’s I often vacationed in Palm Springs where I always enjoyed the warm sunny weather and relaxing resort style atmosphere this wonderful town has to offer. The Mid-Century Modern architecture, majestic mountains surrounding the valley and historic Hollywood movie star flair are but a few features that makes Palm Springs like no other location in the world.

When it came time to choose the destination for my dream I considered other locations like Hawaii and Key West, but the charm and location of this amazing desert city far outweighed any others I could have chosen. So, in 1996 I made the best decision I ever made in my life and chose Palm Springs to live out my dream. Since then my experience here has surpass my expectations and every day that goes by I continue to find new exiting things to see and do, and what a great feeling it is to share that with my guests!

The central location of this property is one of the unique benefits you will enjoy with the ability to walk downtown for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and the active night life that makes Palm Springs one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. Additional benefits include having your very own full kitchen, private patio with outdoor gas grill, relaxing by the heated pool and spa, and enjoying the majestic views of our beautiful mountains which include hiking trails, waterfalls, and local flora. Built in the late 1950’s a recent renovation has incorporated the Mid-Century Modern architecture that was original to the building with modern touches such as flat screen televisions, slate tile walk-in showers with glass panel, rain shower head, glass vessel sinks and black marble counter tops resulting in a mix between history and today’s comfort necessities.

Another very unique feature of this property is the original retro kitchen which is a replica of the kitchen used in Holly Golightly’s (Audrey Hepburn) apartment in the classic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

The best unique benefit I can personally offer you is the most honest, personable, and friendly service in the Industry while respecting your privacy. I personally handle all aspects of my vacation rental apartments and look forward to being of service.

Dave and Rita...Golden Valley, Minnesota

Our first trip to Palm Springs...but definitely not our last !
Our condo was perfect for us...we had the two bedroom unit.
Dave's brother came from the LA area for a few days and had his own bedroom and bathroom.
The condo is as cute as the photo's show...if not cuter.
Very comfy and with all the amenities one would need to stay for a week or a winter.
The complex is small (5 units) and just what we like/wanted.
Oh and the gardens/landscaping is so very lovely.
The view of the mountains from the pool...to die for !
Jorge lives in one of the units and is VERY respectful of your privacy...but is also there at a moments notice when needed.
The complex is within walking distance of many shops...eateries and downtown.
The neighborhood is beautiful...landscape so different with each residents and very safe.
We had no hesitations in the least in walking the area at night.
When we come back...and we will be back...we will definitely once again stay here.

Owner's Response: Either for your first or a return trip to Palm Springs and your needs for two bedrooms or less or one week or the season it is great pleasure to be able to provide such choices for my guests. I love building relationships with my guests while respecting their privacy during their stay and always look forward to return visitors. Hope to see you soon.

Comfortable and quiet

We love it here. We will be coming back for our 4th visit. With only 3 rental units, it is always quiet and you are often the only one at the pool. Jorge is great and the apartments are immaculate. The location is good, close to downtown and a grocery store. I am seriously addicted to the cinnamon rolls at the bakery on the corner.

Owner's Response: The best compliment I can receive as a vacation rental home owner is repeat customers. It is a joy to make reservations for my guests for the following season before they have even finished their current stay. I look forward to continue building relationships year after year. See you next time!

Parents Holiday

My parents (young 80 year olds) just spent two weeks here. They loved Jorge, who was so helpful and personable. The place itself is very comfortable and clean and the grounds well maintained. They also enjoyed the proximity to downtown and the fact they were close to all amenities. They are already talking about next year.

Owner's Response: It is a pleasure to be as helpful as possible and doing so in the most personable manner I can. Living in the same building allows me to make sure the comfort, cleanliness, and maintenance of the property is kept to high standards at all times. I look forward to continue to serve you in the future.

"Holly's Place" is Modern Luxury in Palm Springs

"Holly's Place" is Modern Luxury in Palm Springs
  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2014

If you want to indulge a Holly Golightly fantasy on the cheap in San Francisco, go to Café de la Presse on the corner of Grant and Sutter, order a croissant and a mocha to-go, walk up the hill to Tiffany, and admire the window displays while eating breakfast.

If you want to do it in style in Palm Springs, make a reservation at Jorge’s place. The hospitable and fabulous Jorge explained to us that he saw the apartment’s kitchen in a photo from the film, found the matching cabinet handles easily enough, and decorated from there. And he didn’t overdo it. Minimalist enough to feel sleek and modern, cozy touches made it comfortable too. He thought of lots of important details, like plentiful sumptuous linens and an extra heater.

The apartment boasts an impressive lazy vacationer’s library that accentuates the theme, including books about great films, old Hollywood, Audrey Hepburn, and of course, the short novel by Truman Capote, which we found bedside and enjoyed reading aloud to each other during our stay. We also found plenty of pulpy movies to watch on the easy-to-use entertainment center. We opted for Valley of the Dolls instead of the more obvious choice.

Gorgeous tile floors and showers, lots of nice sitting spots, wooden shutters that work perfectly, lots of mirrors, yummy rugs, and inspiring kitsch all added up to ultra joy and a great place for a writing retreat. I obsessed over our private yard, with its AstroTurf lawn. I want an AstroTurf lawn! It was pleasant to lie upon, way better than grass! Totally clean and soft and dry! I spent most of my writing time sprawled out there.

Jorge has curated it so well, we got spoiled. Our first night cooking went from, “Wow, he's even got a salad spinner in here,” to “Surely there is a lemon zester too!”

The hot tub was on a timer, and nighttime was the right time. In the morning it was no fun at all, but by late afternoon, it started to warm up, and at night it was a steamy dream. Fine, we can deal with that and still have a nice time. But I'm going to deduct a star for it. I like to hot tub several times a day. Hot tubbing is important to me.

And everything else an all-day hot tubber desires was there: easy, close access to the pool, a safe environment, great poolside furniture, comfortable and beautifully landscaped outdoor areas, plenty of towels, plus access to a clothes dryer if I wanted to dry towels or my suit between sessions. For 5-stars, keep the tub on all day.

Owner's Response: When I first noticed the apartment's kitchen cabinets and counters in the classic film I jumped up and immediately went into the unit and started planning the remodel. It is always nice to hear from my guests when they appreciate the retro atmosphere and special touches.

One of the great things about living on the premises is that it allows me to immediately take care of special requests my guests may have. I also listen carefully to guest reviews to learn how I can make improvements. You can be sure the comment about the spa hours has been addressed for your future stays. I look forward to your return.

Jorge Martinez

Excellent location and host! The apartment was beautiful & in wonderful condition! The Audrey Hepburn theme made it so glamorous and cozy and fun to be in! The pool was great; clean and close by. We walked downtown and enjoyed the wonderful parade and delicious Mexican restaurant (La Teraza)! Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend! We will definitely be back!

Your new vacation home is located near Downtown in the none windy South Area of Palm Springs, California. Made famous in the mid 1900's by Hollywood Movies Stars, Palm Springs was the place Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, and Bob Hope got away to play golf and drink martinis by the pool. Located less than 100 miles (2 hour drive) from Los Angeles, Palm Springs is still home to many stars in the entertainment industry. Local Movie Star Tours will show you where they live. Walk to downtown from your apartment and stroll through the sidewalks gazing at the Walk of Stars to find your favorite idol or shop at the many stores located in the Downtown Village. The mountain views are amazing. Ascend 2.5 miles to a pristine wilderness aboard the World's Largest Rotating Tram Cars and hike for hours amongst nature or enjoy the many other amenities available at the top. Golf, hiking, shopping, and a lively nightlife are but a few of the things to do here.
