CASA DE LUCIA ~

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Take pleasure in the glow and beauty of Casa de Lucia. Relax in the casual and quaint charm this home has to offer while enjoying the quintessential life of Palm Springs! As you enter the gates of Casa de Lucia you will immediately feel at home.

As you enter the gates of Casa de Lucia you will immediately feel the tranquility and peace that this home offers. The front garden has a dramatic view of the mountains and is landscaped with green grass, palm trees, desert plants and brilliant bougainvillea blooms that form an archway above the gate.

Built in 1938 and carefully remodeled in 2009, this California Spanish bungalow has maintained its’ charm and unique period style.

Located in the quiet neighborhood of Tahquitz River Estates, Casa de Lucia is situated on a 10,000 plus square foot lot and is completely surrounded with lush green hedges creating a secluded private retreat.

As you enter the house through the large red door you will find the parlor room, which has original wood floors and pine beamed ceilings.

There are two gorgeous fireplaces to warm you on the cooler evenings while relaxing with a great book, having a cocktail, or sharing a romantic dinner.

A petite candelero dining room sits adjacent to the parlor room and kitchen. Seating here is for six.

The spacious family room is accented with an eclectic mix of furnishings centered against a 46 inch flat screen TV with premium cable. This room has a second dining table adjacent a fireplace with Mexican encaustic tiles. Triple French doors lead directly to the pool and when open create a seamless inside living area to outside pool and gardens. This “great room” is comfortable and perfect for relaxing with family and friends.

The backyard has stunning mountain views, with four chaise lounges, an umbrella and two shaded seating areas. Both covered areas have lighting and ceiling fans to allow for comfortable outdoor dining while listening to the sounds of water flowing from the fountain. The large outdoor dining table looks onto the pool. On those warmer days the professional misting system surrounds the pool deck and dining areas for you comfort. In the evening, the landscape and pool lighting create a casual resort feel for enjoying the warm desert evenings.

The mountains of Tahquitz Canyon form a dramatic backdrop with spectacular day and evening views. For the more active, you can walk from the house to hike between the canyon walls and discover Tahquitz Waterfall and a natural pool shaded amongst the Aliso trees. In 1937, Frank Capra’s, Lost Horizon, used this setting for location shots.

Three bedrooms make this home a perfect retreat for a family or for two couples to share. The master bedroom has a king size bed with vaulted pine beamed ceilings and a flat screen TV. The main guest room is situated off the pool with a queen sized canopy bed. Two twin beds complete the third bedroom with views to the front garden and orchid tree.

Don’t forget to check out the poolroom…. An added bonus room with a ping pong table and additional recreation area.

Take pleasure in the glow and beauty of Casa de Lucia. Relax in the casual and quaint charm this home has to offer while enjoying the quintessential life of Palm Springs! This property is only 0.7 miles from downtown!

Casa de Lucia met my expectations and went above and beyond. The old charm of the home can't be beat. The owners have done such a great job of keeping the quaintness of this 1938 home plus updating it with some modern-day comforts. The French doors that line the back of the house open up and make it feel like a very large private home. It literally took us just a few minutes to feel at home and relaxed and we stayed that way for the rest of the trip. Thank you... it was just what we needed and we will definitely be back to enjoy the peace and beauty of this home! Oh the newly re-plastered and re-tiled pool was beautiful we loved it!

Thank you Casa de Lucia for a relaxing and beautiful weekend. The minute we drove into the rustic wooden gated driveway.... we knew we had picked a winner. The furnishings and little touches throughout the house made us feel like we were staying in s very special home. We loved sitting outside in mornings having coffee and watching the hummingbirds as the sun cast beautiful shades on the mountains. The house has a very secluded feeling and it feels like your own private resort.
We also read the reviews about the construction noise, but we didn't hear any loud construction noises the entire time. I peaked at the house being built and it looks like the outside of the house is mostly finished on the outside.... so noise shouldn't be a major factor... or at least it wasn't for us.
We are already talking about coming back soon!

Good: home is in great shape, well appointed, and close to good restaurants.

Not so good: A home is being built / retrofitted right behind this one. Very, very noisy when you sit out at the pool. If you are staying over the next 6 months be forwarned. No one told us ahead of time and that was not right.

Reviewer Comments:
The owner clearly takes pride in this comfortable home. Perfect for our 3-generation family vacation. Acme quickly and cheerfully responded to a couple of minor glitches (light bulb out/no spare bulbs, pool not heating). We had a great time and hope to return soon.

Reviewer Comments:
Casa de Lucia wasn't just a house rental, it truly felt like a home for a week. This property is appointed with everything you could need for a wonderful getaway with family or friends. The property is beautifully landscaped, with the pool as the star of the show. Even though it was a bit on the chilly side during our stay, the heated pool made all the difference in the world. If you are even remotely considering a stay in Palm Springs, Casa de Lucia should be on your list of properties to consider. What a great way to ring in 2013!
