BEST VACATION RENTAL IN PALM SPRINGS!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at this charming house overnight with friends, and that has been one of the best experiences along our journey. Quite and secluded, with lots of space and refreshing pool, yet close enough to downtown and entertainment.
A few blocks away from the entrance to the Aerial Tramway path.
Would definitely recommend to all my friends who plan to visit Palm Springs!

WE'LL BE BACK!!

We'll be back!!
  • 5 of 5
Rented this property for a bachlorette weekend getaway with 12 girls. The house is even better in person than the pictures portray. It is large enough that no girl was ever waiting for a bathroom and everyone had a place to sleep. The house has character and charm and we didn't end up leaving once during the whole weekend because we were having the perfect time where we were!! Great for a large party! There are so many little special spots, like the back patio with BBQ, the tiki hut, the large living room, the pool patio, that people can migrate and fully have a new and varied experience all over the property. The little turtle is adorable too!! He loves lettuce.
Highly recommend. Still in a magical place from this past weekend!! :-)

GREAT ESTATE FOR BACHELORETTE WEEKEND!

  • 4 of 5
I rented this home for a Bachelorette Party. I was worried about getting a decent sized house for housing 12 girls but this house was the perfect size. It didn't feel crowded at all. They had such a nice sized pool, a lot of sitting areas and eating areas, and ample space for parking.

The property was very clean and well maintained. One toilet was a little tricky with the flushing and one bathroom sink had a very tiny flow of water but there were 2 other bathrooms to use to it didn't slow us down too much. The master bathroom was really big and had a really nice shower with 2 shower heads on opposite ends and a nice, big jacuzzi.

The renter was really easy to get in contact with and quick to answer any questions.

The only thing I would have liked to have known upfront, is that the owners live on the estate. Although, it was like they weren't even there, it's just something I would have like to have known before renting the property.

AMAZING HOUSE~!

  • 5 of 5
We recently booked this home for a 30th bday party and the house was perfect. The backyard is amazing, photos don't do it justice. The backyard is huge with many different lounge and eating areas. The pool is actually much larger than the photos and was very clean. This house would be perfect for coachella or other events with 8 or more people.

The inside was clean and spacious and had everything you need. I would definitely come back to this place! Caludio was very professional and quick to respond with any questions etc. Look forward to coming back soon!

BIG PROPERTY / GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD

  • 5 of 5
The property has numerous seating areas both inside and out. Properties in the neighborhood are large, so you don't feel like you are right on top of another neighbor like you probably would at other rentals. Also it's a corner property with a neighbor on only one side.

The floors were tile throughout so there wasn't any fear of damaging carpet with a spill. We had a planning retreat for our organization so parking was important. We were able to park about 7 cars (4 inside and 3 out front) on their property and the neighborhood has enough open area that we were able to park a couple more.

If you are trying to decide between this and some of the other large properties in Palm Springs, I would recommend getting the addresses for them all and give them a look from above on online maps. That's what convinced me to go for this property. Claudio and Margaret were easy to work with; a great location.

WONDERFUL HOUSE FOR LARGE GROUPS

  • 4 of 5
We had a group of 10 people stay at this house for a relaxing weekend in Palm Springs. The backyard and pool were really amazing and more than we needed. We spent almost all of our time outside enjoying the sunshine and pool - with short escapes into the air conditioned house. It was a really memorable and wonderful weekend. I would certainly visit again and recommend the house to others.

The only thing keeping me from giving the house a 5/5 star rating is that the house upkeep wasn't 100%.

- The dishes in the cabinets were very dirty. Lots of food was left on the plates and we had to re-wash everything before using it.

- The stove only had two small working burners. The other burners would not work, which made cooking for a group of 10 very difficult.

- One shower had no shower curtain, so water was splashing all over the bathroom and we decided no one should use that shower, which is unfortunate when you have 10 people and 3 showers.

- The double-shower in the master bathroom only had one functional shower head. Not a deal-breaker by any means, but unfortunate.

- The master bathroom jacuzzi also had not been used in a very long time so tons of black bits came shooting out of the jets and lined the tub making the jacuzzi unusable.

- Several lights were not working and there were no replacement bulbs available. The light above the big dining room table outside was out, so we ate several meals in darkness.


All of this said, we still had an amazing time and would recommend the house to others. I'm sure the owners would have fixed these items had we asked, but since we were there for such a short stay it was not worth the hassle. I would just highly urge you to make sure the owners have fixed these issues before your arrival to ensure you have a perfect stay!
