Beautiful Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Casa Aguila for a 2 week 40th birthday vacation and never wanted to leave! I have stayed at friend's homes and hotels in Palm Springs, but I've never seen such a luxurious oasis. The property is only bordered on one side and mature gardens create a opulent sense of privacy.

We were met at the front door by Mel, the property's caretaker and he not only showed us around that first afternoon, but was always quick to help, during our stay, with questions about the house or local recommendations, even over the Easter Holiday.

I was able to become acquainted with Glenn, the owner, during the reservation process and found that he was a joy to work with and ensuring my vacation would be perfect was his priority. I drove down from Seattle and he was very accommodating with some of my needs; even welcoming my pet! Glenn obviously loves his home and enjoys giving vacation renters a chance to fall in love with it too! It is beautifully and thoughtfully appointed with well designed spaces and beautiful art. It has a relaxed Spanish design that is comfortable and never precious.

Having the separate guest house & livingroom made a wonderful option for my guests. It gave them some privacy and a retreat of their own.

We spent most of our day in the large pool or sunning poolside. For dinner, we were close enough to walk or take a short drive to every hotspot.

It's the end of May, our trip was in April and I'm already trying to figure out when I can go back and stay at Casa Aguila. I've already recommended the home to my sister and her family for their spring break. Overall, I highly recommend Casa Aguila!

Couldn't Have Asked For More!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped inside the gorgeous wooden doors, we knew we arrived somewhere very special. We were a large group (11 good friends) visiting Palm Springs to celebrate a milestone birthday. The house was spacious, unique, beautifully decorated and suited our every need. The location was ideal as we could walk to nearby restaurants and shops, stroll to grab a morning coffee, easily access local hiking trails but the pool, spectacularly kept surrounding gardens (the grapefruits were amazing!) and lovely mountain views made us think twice about ever actually leaving Casa Aguila during our stay. Mel was fantastic as he toured us through the house when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know during our stay in detail. It's clear that great thought has been put into accommodating guests and we appreciated every moment of our stay. We truly enjoy Palm Springs and absolutely love Casa Aguila. Thank you for making our visit memorable. We would all love to return one day!

Fantastic family compound for holiday or special occaision

  • 5 of 5

This home was just perfect for my recent 50th birthday celebration in which family and friends from around the country joined us over the new year's holiday week in Palm Springs. The location could not be better- in the beautiful old Las Palmas neighborhood, spectacular views of the mountains from the master bedroom, and dining room, and just a short (and fun) walk past all of the shops on Palm Canyon Drive into the heart of the downtown area. The house, or rather compound, is ideally laid out for a large, muti-family unit get-together where any one or more family members can still 'get-away' from everyone else if they want to chill out, take a nap, sleep in, or generally drift in and out of the large living room, den, dining area and kitchen where we all gathered communally. All of the bedrooms had en suite bathrooms and the guest bedroom suites off of the courtyard were particularly stunning- the largest being ideal for parents in the bedroom and then children (or related close family members) next door with the huge adjoining bathroom between them. The outdoor area is also beautiful with plenty of room for all to sun and dine outdoors and the cactus gardens and fruit trees were so nice (we had enough delicious fresh grapefruit every morning to feed the whole clan!). The owners could not have been more lovely and gracious throughout the entire rental experience and the property manager who checked us in and out was also so pleasant and professional. Really, I cannot think of enough positive things to say. We will definitely try to rent this property again - it was a delight.

A Christmas to Remember!

  • 5 of 5

This property and its amenities were exceptional. Our family of 14 (10 from Canada) gathered here for Christmas and had the best time. As past reviewers have said, it felt like home and there wasn't much need to venture out. Our kids spent the entire week in the beautiful pool, picked fresh fruit from the trees in the yard, occupied themselves in the games room and didn't say "I'm bored" even once. With such a large number of people we loved that we each had our own beautiful room, each as good as the next. If we needed a quiet moment there was no lack of space to find it. The large dining area let us all sit comfortably for dinner to enjoy being together as a family. Thanks to the wonderful owner, even a Christmas tree was up when we arrived. We enjoyed meeting the Property Manager who was excellent and the garden and pool staff who were friendly and accommodating. One of our best vacations ever.

Our third year at Casa Aguila was better than ever, and we can't wait to return in 2015!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our third week-long stay here with our entire family and we plan to return in 2015. The location is the best in the Palm Springs area (close enough to the airport, and walking to great restaurants and anything else that downtown Palm Springs has to offer). However, we are so comfortable "at home" that we never go out for dinners! The kitchen is well-equipped and suitable for our large family. The house is always super clean and well-cared for by its owner, the house manager and the pool/maintenance/everything person Jose. There have been so many extras that we have never found in other vacation rental houses. The common areas and wide open pool area with quiet shaded lounge area at one end make this a perfect place for a large number of people. There is always somewhere to go if you want to get away from the others (conference calls, quiet reading, etc) and the common spaces are so large that it never feels crowded even if all the bedrooms are filled. Hugh, please keep your beautiful home available for our family every year!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year for our spring break trip and loved it so much we returned this year! There are were 10 of us - 4 adults and 6 children. It is a beautiful estate with amazing landscaping. It feels like a true get away, yet it is an easy walk to downtown. The sunset over the mountains was worth watching everyday from the pool. It was immaculate on our arrival. The pool area is well laid out for sun and shade. There is plenty of space so we could all gather together or find a quiet spot if we wanted to. I would highly recommend this property. The owner and property manager were great to work with for the rentals.
