Palm Springs is a magical and fun place to visit year round. Check out the Palm Springs Visitor Bureau for the calendar of events. Each season has something to offer. The area is famous for its mild Fall, Winter and Spring climates which make outdoor activities possible. Besides 40 plus public golf courses, there is walking/hiking, bicycling, world class shopping, museums and lots of other ways to have fun. There are film festivals, golf and tennis events, plus great enterainment and music festivals depending on time of year.
Spring brings a warmup and wild flower viewing, and photography or painting are possible at 2 nearby National Parks. Short day trips to local sights and the nearby mountains make it fun exploring and a great excuse for a picnic. March and April are probably the best months for outstanding weather.
As it warms up in April and May, may snowbirds head north for spring at home, and PS becomes a getway for those wanting a quieter, more relaxed vacation. By June specials abound for the locals. In the morning, you can get in a discounted round of golf, enjoy lunch on a misted patio and then lay by the pool to work on a tan. Then contemplate a beautiful sunset from your own patio or a nearby patio of a Valley restaurant. There is so much to do here in the Coachella Valley and this home is convenient to everything.

Located in the Four Seasons, an over 55 years young community, this resort home has extensive community facilities including: heated lap pool, excerise pool, spa pool, tennis courts, basketball court, pickle ball court, hoseshoes, lawn bowling, table tennis, game/card room, library, Bistro restaurant and a beauty salon. For guests staying a month or longer, the computer room and Gym/Exercise Equipment privileges are available.
At least one guest must be over 55 years old and will need to provide proof. Small dogs will be considered with an extra refundable security deposit and the yard is fenced. Because the community is 55+, the development is not child/kid friendly. Children must be constantly supervised at the pool and have limited access times, and many facilities are off limits to them.

We live only 2 blocks from this house and manage it ourselves. If there are any problems, we are close by.
We have lived and visited Palm Springs since the 1960's and currently own two homes here in the Four Seasons. One is our primary residence and the other we refer to as our guest house which we make available to family and friends. Having travelled extensively, we wanted to have a place for guests that would provide all the comforts of home, and our goal is that when they left, we hoped our guests would say that their visit was extraordinary because of the many things that are possible to do in Palm Springs and because they were as comfortable in our guest house as they were staying at home. Some of our guest reviews indicate that we have been successful.
When we travel, we appreciate the locals sharing ideas of things to do and places to go. As a result, we've put together a local guide book including shopping, restaurants, museums, entertainment, hiking/outdoor activities, street fairs & local farmer's markets, sightseeing, etc. which our guests say gives them even more choices than they thought possible. Having your own home instead of a hotel room and living in a resort community for an extended stay offers the best of both. Palm Springs has so many things to do year round and this is a great base location to do them. One never gets tired of the views, of waking up each morning and looking out the window or having a cup of coffee on the patio and seeing the towering mountains from the back yard or rotating north and and south and looking at the changing shadows and colors on the hills 20-30 miles away and then trying to decide that difficult question --- What shall I do today?
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway takes you to the top of a nearby mountain from desert floor to 8,500 ft and an alpine climate. National Park - Joshua Tree has hiking trails, wildflower areas. Name Brand Outlet Shopping Center is 20 minutes away for fantastic bargins. Snow and Alpine Skiing in mountains about 80 minutes away. Five Gaming Casinos in the Valley and the Salton Sea about 35 miles away.
