Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

The five bedroom ranch-home with more than 3,300 square feet of interior living was recently upgraded combining its great location with many amenities and charming characteristics such as the vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, and many clerestory windows.

This residence is nestled in Araby Cove in South Palm Springs just below the prestigious Southridge Estates. Hollywood celebrities such as Bob Hope, Steve McQueen, and William Holden were long-term residents of Southridge. A glimpse of the iconic Elrod Lautner Estate can be seen from this Araby Cove home, where the James Bond film "Diamonds Are Forever" was filmed. With its dynamic location among the mountains it is a wonder young and older celebrities flock to this south Palm Springs location to places like Parker Palm Springs and Smoketree Ranch.

The five bedroom ranch-home with more than 3,300 square feet of interior living was recently upgraded combining its great location with many amenities and charming characteristics such as the vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, many clerestory windows, and arched windows in the entertainment room to expose the spectacular views of the desert landscape. The home was perfectly planned for entertaining or a relaxing oasis. From the moment of arrival at the half circular driveway through the double front-doors the attention to detail will amaze you. The home is laid out in bamboo flooring and features an entertainment oasis with pool table, pinball machines and plenty of flat screen TVs around. A modern kitchen was also created with plenty of granite counters and modern appliances for creating the perfect culinary event. A formal dining room is available in addition to a breakfast area, sit at bar, and enjoy easy access to the outdoor dining area. The adjacent great room is perfect for gatherings around the fireplace.

For intimate ambience or solitary space, the home features many private nooks and patios for tranquility. Sun-worshipping is still allowed here for a full day poolside. Mindful repose beckons during the evening's foremost sunsets, then rejoice around the outdoor 7 foot long custom fire table with room for everyone to enjoy under a sea of stars. Hit the hay after you play. The home features two luxuriously appointed master suites each with ensuite bathrooms with double vanities and updated for living today. The 3rd large bedroom features another king bed with adjoining full bathroom. The "kid-zone" has two twin beds and DVD player for the fourth bedroom. The fifth bedroom has a new Tempur-pedic queen size bed. All of the wonderfully appointed bedrooms feature flat screen TVs. Araby Cove in Southridge Views is sure to impress. This property is only 2.1 miles from downtown!

The owners chose this home because of its unique location surrounded with plenty of Hollywood history and spectacular mountain views. The home is minutes from downtown Palm Springs and all the new hip hotels, popular restaurants, and shopping.

Araby Cove offers plenty of tranquility that vacation dwellers often search for: located near hiking trails and away from the winds of north Palm Springs. Plenty of mid-century architecture can be found nearby as well.

Great floorplan for large groups

Found this home on flipkey when we were looking for a large house for our group of couples with young kids in Palm Springs. The home is divided into two wings with the living room, kitchen and dining room in the center. One side had two large masters and the other had a large master suite with its own bath and then a bedroom with a queen sharing a full bath with the room with 2 twin beds. Having the families with the infants on one side allowed them to be up at any hour and not disturb the other guests. We all liked this a lot. Also the two largest master suites had huge walk in closets where we set up the crib/pack and plays to allow for quiet nap times
The heated pool was great with 2 shallow sides leading to the center of the pool which eliminates a dangerous 'deep end' for kids.
We did some outdoor cooking on the grill and ate around the large fire pit which can be used as a table as well for about 8-9 people, then had the rest of us sit at the adjacent outdoor glass top table so our entire group was together. The fire pit made a whistle like sound at first but once we called in to the management company, they let us know that this only happens if the gas line is turned on too high. After we made that adjustment it worked great.
Plenty of kitchen space and pots, pans etc... to prepare for a large group which has direct access to the back patio (location of table and fire pit) through the glass kitchen door.
Two grocery stores just up the street had everything that we needed as we rarely ventured out far other than the jogging trail at the end of the street that ran along the foot of the mountains. But if I had to guess, I would estimate that downtown was 2-3 miles away as a few of us ate a meal at "Trio" (which was excellent)
The older kids (and adults) enjoyed the 'old school' pinball machines and pool table.
Check in and check out were easy. We would recommend this to our friends and family and will be back again.

Reviewer Comments:
We would not want to put too negative a comment on the property as overall our stay was quite acceptable. The comments that we have relative to the property are as follows. A) The dishwasher could use a good cleaning, particularly at the base of the door. B) The washing machine needs a good scrubbing around the dispenser ports. C) The furniture in the "family room" off the kitchen is need of an upgrade. looks good, but not at all comfortable nor practical. D) The fold-out futon/bed in the office (Laundry room) is not really adequate for sleeping as it does not open flat and we had to pad it to make it level.

We saw the rental property online and fell in love with it. We booked the house for Labor Day weekend to celebrate a friends 40th birthday. After a grueling 8 hour drive we arrived to a dark house with debris and tree branches littering the driveway. We had just missed a huge thunderstorm that knocked out power and tore up the surrounding trees. I called Acme and even at 10 pm I got a live person who contacted the power company and got us an update on the situation. We made the best of it,went out for a few drinks then came home and swam by the light of the moon. Power was up before we were the following day. I talked to Lisa at Acme after we assessed the storm damage and she immediately sent out a landscapper to pick up broken tree branches and clean up the pool. Later in the day we noticed that the A/C on one side of the house was not working,again, Lisa responded immediately and had someone checking it out by lunch. Unfortunately it was beyond repair but Acme supplied us with two room unit air conditioners. The following day Lisa from Acme made a personal appearance at the house to apologize for our inconvenience and even brought the birthday boy a nice bottle of wine! She told us that the property owners were going to take care of the utilities incurred for the weekend. I was beyond impressed that Lisa showed up in person and even bearing gifts! The house itself was gorgeous, just like the pictures. Very well maintained, very clean,all needed amenities were there. This property is in a perfect location, gorgeous views of the mountains, 5 minutes from a grocery store and close to downtown yet still felt very private. Aside from a few hiccups from the storm it was a wonderful weekend for all of us that we will always cherish. I am a die hard Acme supporter now. Forget the hotels and resorts, book a home with Acme and really feel at home for your vacation.
