Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Dramatic interiors and outdoor areas mingle seamlessly at this cutting-edge contemporary Multi-Million dollar home featuring a soaring pavilion roof, 15 foot Ceilings and disappearing walls of glass that heighten the impact of the San Jacinto Mountain vistas.

Retractable pocket doors completely expose the Great Room to the enormous salt water lagoon waterfall pool and lush tropical landscaping. Outdoor fireplace, Fire pit and Kitchen/BBQ truly make this indoor/outdoor living at its finest.

This 4 bedroom 4.5 bath resort home was built in 2007 and completely furnished with wonderful amenities. From the open floor plan that ties together the spacious living room, dining room, and kitchen, there are terrific views of the pool, yard, and spectacular. The chef kitchen is complete with two dishwashers, double convention oven, microwave, six burner gas stove and extra wide refrigerator/freezer with ice maker.

The master bedroom suite is located at one end of the estate while the other three bedrooms are positioned for privacy on the other end. One bedroom is a private casita with private entrance and courtyard. The bathrooms feature natural stone from floor to ceiling, and frameless shower enclosures. After entering through the signature Patel glass door, you will be captivated by the spectacular view in the great room that will take your breath away.

Although extremely private to allow for a Clothing optional lifestyle, it is important to note that there are no shades on the floor to ceiling windows that open to the secure landscaped backyard to allow for dramatic views from all rooms.

The extremely large lagoon pool and backyard is private and offers nude /au natural sunbathing opportunity. The pool is saltwater which will make your skin feel soft and refreshed. Behind the pool is one of the favorite spots you’ll come to enjoy; in the shade of the palms you’ll find a hammock and deep soft sand that you can’t resist wiggling your toes in.

The home features a state of the art sound system that includes speakers throughout the house, patio and outdoor living areas. You may play your favorite music from your IPod, CD’s or via one of the dozens of cable music channels provided. There are 3 HD plasma televisions, with the TV in the great room wired for surround sound. If you find yourself having the need to stay online, there is high speed cable wireless internet throughout the property.

About Bill Gaul

Single Dad-3 great kids, Child Friendly and Dog Friendly

I travel a great deal, and have a few homes across the country, enjoy my place while I'm not there and let me exceed your expectations...its not only the home you will be pleased with, but the total service and experience you will have. A property mgr/concierge is available to arrange any special needs like pre-arrival shopping, private massages poolside, pedi/mani treatments poolside, private celebrity chefs- Check out my testimonials!

Bill Gaul purchased this house in 2007

Why Bill Gaul chose Palm Springs

I love the peace, solitude and warmth of Palm Springs. It is easy to get to, and a couple of days here is like spending a week in Hawaii. There is something magical about it, I live a high stress life, and my blood pressure drops immediately and I have completely restful nights

What makes this house unique

Complete and total privacy, relaxation, solitude, and yet I can work from work when needed. Love to cook, and enjoy the large gourmet chef kitchen and outdoor BBQ area. The pool is the largest in the entire community and I brought in 100 tons of rock to build the natural waterfall. Check out the 'corona commercial hammock' behind the waterfall with misters, the perfect place to take a little nap under the shade of the palm trees!

Best Holiday Ever!!

  • 5 of 5
The moment you walk into this incredible property you will feel absolute privacy with opportunity for enjoyment at every turn. Howie the Property Manager was there to greet us with such a fun spirit we felt so taken care of our entire stay. Bill, the property owner has done an exceptional job of creating a wonderful environment from cozy bed linens to having every kitchen and bar requirement needed to be able to cook and entertain in every fashion. We cannot recommend this property enough. We have stayed at vacation rentals around the world, Bahamas, Paris, Byron Bay and this is our favourite home. Your expectations will be exceeded with this wonderful property! yay!! THank you Bill!!!

Owner's Response: WoW..what a great testimonial from a great guest! This is especially touching/sincere knowing that they had rented another home through an agency and were very disappointed after 3 days of staying there; VRBO is the way to go- they contacted me and we were able to accommodate their transition to my home within hours so that they could enjoy the rest of their vacation in a style to which they were accustomed to. Great followup with these guests and I would recommend them to any VRBO owner as ideal guests. Bill

What a Way to Enjoy a Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Coming from Canada and never before renting a vacation home I was a little nervous about making "blind arrangements" through VRBO but Bill made this experience nothing short of exceptional. I felt like I was being taken care of by a five star hotel. Bill was prompt, professional, and polite responding to any and all email requests I had. At not one point did I feel left in the dark. Since our first email exchange I immediately felt like I was dealing with a trustworthy person and he stayed true to everything he and his rental agreement outlined. I don't ever anticipate having a better experience with a private booking unless I'm renting again through Bill sometime in the future.

As soon as you approach the front door of this property you know you're going to be spoiled during your stay. The pictures don't do the overall house any justice but you do get a pretty good idea of what to expect from the backyard, kitchen and common areas. All the bedrooms are roomy and comfortable for all guests and then there's the master bedroom, it's simply amazing. It's in a wing of itself - private and away from the rest of the house. It would be nice if the patio doors off the master bedroom were tinted or had curtains for full privacy but I was just blown away from what we were getting as an overall package. I found the audio and video system a little confusing to use (and I don't consider myself someone that has troubles with electronics) even though a binder with instruction was provided. Once it's up and running the system was fine to use and I was able to call the owner and/or property manager with any questions at anytime so I was not lost.

Overall this house the service and owner were all well above what I was expecting.

Owner's Response: I'm deeply humbled by this guest's praises and pleased that my attention to detail in making sure from the moment someone inquires about the property to the day after they leave is a positive experience. I consider each of my guest's as friends and want them to have great memories of the time that I could extend my home to them. Although we have installed an impressive audio/visual system in the home, and supposedly the easiest remote system to operate it (Control 4), if you don't use Control 4 regularly, it is indeed foreign to most people. Every time i go down to the house myself, i have to get re-acquainted with it, but once i do, its easy to operate. Note: this is the second automated system we have installed to handle the various options available to control the audio/visual for the two zones in the house as well as the entire backyard, and believe it or not, it is actually much simpler to use than the first one. I guess we just have too many options to control, however Greg the property mgr is available to answer your questions. This was a great group to have stay at the house, and I was equally nervous since their stay was over the Coachella Music Festival weekend. Both our 'intuitions' turned out great and glad they were able to come down, and always welcome to come back.

Highly recommend this home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just spent a fabulous week in Palm Springs. The weather was great but what made the trip was Bill's home. It is perfect for extended family gatherings, couples or just a group of friends. The whole transaction was easy from finding the home to signing contracts to checking in and out. We had 2 teenaged girls as well as my 80 year old mother and my sister and brother-in-law and my husband and I. All 7 of us had a great time. My mother used the words heaven and paradise several times during our stay!! The girls loved to pool and hammock and the guys especially liked the fire pit and hot tub. You really couldn't ask for more. We will definitely go back!

Owner's Response: If only every guest was this easy to work with, my life would be so simple! From the moment the request came in, to personally delivering their check so that we could meet in person, it has been such a delight to work with this group. I'm glad i was able to make their stay as enjoyable as they have made the experience for me. I look forward to their return!

As Advertised +++

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our three boys, ages 8-12, just spent four nights at this amazing home. Our jaws dropped when we walked in--it's just incredible, way better than the pictures. The boys jumped in the pool right away, and our vacation began… Everything was so lovely, from the comfortable beds to the perfectly heated pool. The kids had a wonderful time at outside fun places too--dune buggying on a desert course nearby, boulder hopping at Joshua Tree, and megafun splashing and sliding at the Water Park. Each night they loved coming home to the wonderful waterfall pool and playing some more. Five stars*** And the owner is very accommodating, too!

Owner's Response: :D I'm always so happy when the experience at my property is one that creates lasting memories for lovely families. I try to go above and beyond to make sure it does, just as I have lasting memories of my own family enjoying the place, I get to re-live those moments when I read reviews like this, as it wasn't that long ago my own children (grown now) did the same thing...this was a wonderful family that i hope i will have the pleasure to host again and again.

Christmas stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I met at this beautiful residence for Christmas. The weather was perfect, the house beautiful and the pool and spa a marvelous pleasure. The photos accurately describe the property but the lighted waterfall and patio in the evening is something one must see to believe. The property feels very private and secluded thanks to the landscaping..."help yourself to the lemons on the tree" we were told when seeing the property for the first time.

We enjoyed the area: its farmers' markets both day and evening; the restaurants; the tramway and shopping and sightseeing.

All in all it was a great vacation in a lovely place with a kind owner who was a pleasure to work with from start to finish.

An Amazing, Luxury, Private Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5
My family and I selected the absolutely perfect vacation rental! Your home is truly breathtaking from the moment you walk in the dramatic front door. With sweeping mountain views, impeccable landscaping, a 5-star resort quality pool and spa, and a house made for entertaining, cooking, relaxing, and rest. We especially loved the beds and linens for amazing sleeping. The TV and Great Rooms allowed us all to be together while we prepared meals or just hung out. The walls of glass that open completely, allowing the outside in, are a dream. It's very hard to find anything bad to say about this most special rental. Even though shopping, downtown, the airport, and attractions are minutes away, it feels that you are well out of town, away from any hustle and bustle. We'll be back, we'll be back, we'll be back. Thank you!
