We loved this fabulous mid-century, completely remodeled home! Lovely pool and spa, outdoor fire, guest house, beautiful kitchen and baths! The location is perfect, walk to dinner, shopping, hiking! We walked across the street for a spa day at The Viceroy, cocktails at Melvyn's! Every detail is exquisite! Hope we can go back soon!
We stayed at the butterfly house during the Tour de Palm Springs annual bike ride. Our group was four couples and three children. The house was very comfortable and had all the amenities we could have hoped for. It came with a pack-and-play and high-chair, which is always appreciated. The kitchen was well-stocked and beautifully designed. We stayed in the back casita, which was luxurious and felt like a suite during our honeymoon.
The big garage was especially nice for our bikes and gear in preparation for the ride. The location is walkable to all the stores and restaurants you could want, so we took numerous strolls into town without having to use our cars. We would highly recommend the house to anyone interested in having a relaxing weekend in PS.
The only downsides were the landscapers, pool workers and housecleaners- they all came during our stay and were a bit disruptive. The landscapers used loud machines in the middle of the day, which affected our pool experience for about 2 hours on Friday. Then, the pool lady came the same day and told us we needed to leave the pool while she worked. The housecleaners came at 9:30am on our last day- an hour before we were supposed to be gone. This impacted our ability to have a relaxing check-out. These are just things that could likely be worked out with some better pre-scheduling. All and all, we had a fantastic time and loved the house!
I always come to Palm Springs for my birthday weekend every year with a large group of friends and have stayed at various hotels throughout the past. We finally got smart and all came together to rent a house and found that we saved so much money food dining out at restaurants, as well as crazy pool bar tabs. Michaels home is so well appointed and relaxing and conducive to entertaining that we never left the house! The home itself stayed incredibly cool on 100 degree days with minimal A/C which I am not a fan of. Each guest raved about the comfort of their beds as well as the amazing pool we stayed in from morning until night. The location the best if your not familiar with Palm Springs as you can walk to everything from the house. Can't wait to come back next year but am hopeful it may be even sooner as now all my friends are "in the know" and have plans to stay here as well in the near future. Thank you !!!
We had awesome experience at the Butterfly Home. We had rented the house for a designer off-site for some pre-season color work and wanted to have the atmosphere and energy of Palm Springs and the California desert influence the palette. Done!
The home and accommodations were effortless and better than we could have anticipated. Beautiful kitchen, living and bed rooms. Plenty of space, and yet very intimate. The pool and the water and the light outside was beautiful, and the architecture, color and design was a perfect Palm Springs vibe. We took an excellent modern architecture tour with Robert Imber while on our trip, which I'd highly recommend. He was delightful and a true passionate expert on mid-century architecture and Palm Springs - we even learned a little about our Butterfly Home!
Great place. Great trip. Would come back in a heartbeat!
thank you very much for one of the best vacation homes i ever been to. me and my wife have rented many homes during our travels from VRBO, and this one is the king of the hill. We had a two other couples stay with us for a long weekend of golf and great eats. And this place has the perfect location, right accross from the Viceroy hotel. Had dinner and drinks there and walked back home. The backyard and kitchen are a cooks dream. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a great Palm Springs experience.
House was amazing and exactly as shown in photos. Location was perfect for walking into town and we did not have to drive once. Plenty of room and guest house was perfect and felt private from home. Amazing infinity edge pool and spa. Would recommend to friends who appreciate mid-century architecture and beautiful setting close to the mountains. Planning a second trip back in Spring!
