Born in Havana-Cuba moving to the USA in 1969. Grew up mostly in the South Bay of Los Angeles 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 original features such as our retro kitchen and original bathroom tiles with today’s interior design touches like the wall to wall ceramic designer tile, Euro style furnishings and artwork to create a mix between history and today’s comfort necessities.

Lovely month in Palm Springs.

  • Submitted: Feb 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
The property was exactly as described, and made for a very pleasant months vacation. The whole place was well maintained, clean and had everything we required.
Jorge was there to greet us and was very helpful and accommodating.
The location was perfect, nice and quiet and only a 20 minute walk to the centre of Palm Springs, also very convenient to a good supermarket.
The pool and hot tub were always clean and well maintained.
We had a nice private outdoor area, great for the occasional barbeque. The weather was great for our stay and ideal for us to play golf, go hiking in the mountains or just relax by the pool.
We were very sad to leave.
Owner's Response: I do my best to describe my properties exactly as they are so there are no surprises upon arrival and it is always a pleasure to hear such is the case from guest comments. Living on the premises allows me the opportunity to keep the property well maintained and to immediately address my guest's needs as they come up during their stay. This is not just an investment for me but also my home and it is a pleasure to share it with my guests. A great location for things to do like golf and hiking or just relaxing by the pool is one of the reasons I chose to purchase this property years ago and judging by my guest comments it was the right decision to make. I look forward to providing accommodations you have come to expect for years to come.

Thank you,

Jorge Martinez

It was so awesome that I extended my stay!

This was the perfect vacation visit! The owner is incredibly friendly, and he made me feel at home as soon as I arrived.

The apartment complex, itself, is extremely well-kept and clean. You can tell that the owner takes pride in his building and the grounds. The apartment I stayed in was beautifully decorated and, again, made me feel at home. It had everything you would need to have a restful visit. I had an apartment which had a private patio which added to the relaxation and quiet I was looking for on this visit.

The pool is the perfect size and even had various rafts you could enjoy which I did. I spent most of my time reading in the pool because the apartment complex is perfectly located in a quiet part of Palm Springs. It was so quiet during the day, and yet it was close enough for me to walk into downtown each day.

The apartment is minutes away from everything you would need: a grocery store, restaurants, bars, and all the famous locations you would want to see when staying in Palm Springs.

When I first planned my trip, I had booked it for 7 days at an EXTREMELY reasonable rate. After a few days, I was enjoying my time there so much that I extended my stay for 5 more days. I honestly didn't want to leave.

I totally recommend this place for anyone who needs a getaway to Palm Springs and wants to stay in a clean, friendly, small environment as opposed to the large resorts and hotels in the area. I can't wait to return next year for another peaceful visit!!
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to comment on your visit. It was a pleasure to have you as my guest and to hear the accommodations were exactly what you were looking for. I look forward to your return visit next year.

Regards,

Jorge

I've stayed in this apartment for a month. The place is exactly as described. Very fresh and clean. I liked the little secluded patio in the back and the original retro kitchen. The street is quiet and the pool feels private. The owner is a gracious host, very helpful, yet discreet. I can definitely recommend this place and I'll consider it again when in Palm Springs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to comment on your visit. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the private patio, pool, and retro kitchen. I also appreciate your kind personal words about me. I look forward to being your host again in the future.

Jorge

Great Apartment

  • Submitted: Apr 17, 2010
  • Stayed: Apr 2010
This was our first experience with VRBO as we have always gone the hotel route. We had a great apartment that was clean and quiet. We enjoyed our meals outside in the private backyard with barbeque, water fountain and humming birds. The kitchen was nicely equiped for our needs. We had towels and pool towels supplied as well. The pool is shared among the other 4 units. The owner, Jorge, was very helpful with suggestions regarding Palm Springs and things to see and do and easy access to downtown Palm Springs and the airport. Thanks again!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on your stay. I try very hard to think of everything that will make my guest's stay comfortable and convenient. It is nice to hear when it is enjoyed and appreciated. I look forward to your return. Jorge.

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.
