Guestbook comments from the owner
In December of last year, two friends and I booked the Crockett House in Palm Springs for 5 glorious days. We loved it so much that I returned again in June with another girlfriend. From the moment I walked into this mid century classic, I felt like I was on a Frank Sinatra movie set. Everything was true 1960’s Hollywood glamour. Big picture windows provide a perfect frame for the mountains beyond and the large kidney shaped pool and palm trees. The king bed was ultra comfortable and fit for a queen and my personal dressing room with built-in make-up counter was extra special. Walking distance to the Tennis Club, shops and restaurants made this the perfect getaway.

My husband and I have been coming to Palm Springs over the past 15 years. We love the warm dry temperatures and the walking and biking friendly neighborhood. We live in San Diego and every opportunity we have, we drive 2-hours to Palm Springs just to relax. We are both from back east but have lived in California for 15 years. We were married in Palm Springs in 2006. A very special place for us. The recent economic growth is alive and well in Palm Springs, with many new mid-century modern furniture stores and wonderful new dining experiences. We just love the community of Palm Springs.

Cathy Geddes purchased this house in 2011

The ultimate in privacy and solitude. All you hear are the birds singing. You won't want to leave the property. Very close to the airport, 5 minute taxi ride from Palm Springs airport eliminating the need for a rental car. Walk, bike to all museums, restaurants, mountain hikes, tennis, downtown shopping. This makes it easy when traveling with friends; everyone can do their own thing. My husband and I have visited this neighborhood for the past 15 years, in search of the perfect home and this is it! We are happy to have you enjoy our big piece of paradise!

You will fall in love with this home the minute you open the front door to the start of your vacation. The stunning full ceiling to floor glass walls, display the true Palm Springs experience, spacious views of the large backyard, grass, grapefruit trees and the spectacular mountain views. Ultimate in privacy. One of the many spectacular furnishings is our 20 foot curved vintage couch. Sit back relax. You won't want to leave!

AWESOME ORIGINAL MID CENTURY HOME

  • 5 of 5
we gave this rental experience an excellent overall, the home was very clean, very well stocked kitchen, and was in the most perfect location in town. my only problem, was that we were not informed that the pool heater wasnt working, not was there a solar cover, the pool remained cold and we would have appreciated having the heater, or at least being made aware that there was no heat. otherwise it was a positive experience.

WHAT A COMFORTABLE, LOVELY HOME.

  • 5 of 5
We have 3 young children, and this house was heaven for us. We come back to PS every year, and this is by far our favorite house. Cathy the owner did an amazing job of making sure we were happy. The house is beautiful, cozy, and relaxed. The kids loved the pool and we loved the beautiful fire pit. There's nothing quite like the view of the mountains, and the proximity to downtown is amazing. The bedrooms are comfortable, and the kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed. This house deserves 6 stars!! We will certainly be back. Just don't tell anyone, or it will be too booked up for us to get.

MID-CENTURY GEM

  • 5 of 5
This mid-century gem of a home can't be any more perfect. Meticulously restored and beautifully maintained, the home offers the best indoor-outdoor vacation experience. Every room of the house is delightful from the glamorous master suite with wide open views to the garden and the mountains; to the elegant living/dinning room with classic modernist details and floor-to-ceiling glass; to the retro kitchen with vintage "Jetson-style" appliances--even cooking at home is fun. And the furnishings, gardens, and accessories are as gourgeous as the architecture. Our only regret is we had to leave when our vacation was done.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
The Crockett House is simply fantastic! The house is in unbelieveable condition - nearly as it was the day it was built with the addition of a beautiful swimming pool and firepit. Every attention to detail has been addressed and lovingly restored. You won't want for anything. There was even fresh iced tea in the frig when we arrived in 100 degree heat. The house and backyard are totally private, and even though close to downtown, it is tucked away in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Downtown and many great restaurants are within easy walking distance: Spencer's, La Vallerus, and Johannes to name a few. Kathy, the owner, was always available, but you won't need her - the place is perfect! We even skipped our tee time on the last full day just to hang by the pool and soak up the ambiance of the Crockett House one last time!

ATTENTION TO DETAIL, LOCATION, AMBIANCE MAKE THIS A WELCOME PALM SPRINGS VENUE

  • 5 of 5
The Crockett House lived up to the description and photos. The attention to detail in furnishings, decor and grounds maintenance resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable stay. This home is in a well-established lovely neighborhood that is close to downtown -- one can enjoy a respite but restaurants and shops are not far. Have been to many locations in the desert and this home stands out. Looking forward to a future visit to the Crockett House.
Recommend a visit to Palm Springs Art Museum and to Sunnylands, conference center, estate and gardens (tour reservations required).

Owner's Response: Andrea, Thank you for choosing our home for your vacation. I am so glad you and your friends enjoyed our home as much as we do. You have inspired me to take a trip to Sunnylands. I will be sure to plan a trip there in the near future. I would also suggest you take a Red Jeep Tour of the San Andreas fault on your next visit. Fantastic history!
Kind Regards,
Cathy

WONDERFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time my family and I have rented this beautiful house. Not only is it perfectly & thoughtfully furnished, but the outlook, the mountains, and especially the pool, are amazing! I hope we can return next year. The owners have been charming, professional and have paid attention to every detail in both the house and the garden. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it!

Car: recommended

Walk out the front door throughout the residental neighborhood of the Historic Tennis Club. Within 3 blocks you are at the world class Spencer's restaurant with the most photographed pool in the neighborhood. Private Tennis Club that does offer daily tennis fees for quests. Stroll over to the Viceroy Hotel and Citron restaurant for breakfast and paper poolside. Enjoy outdoor dining poolside while listening to soothing entertainment on Wednesday evenings. Palm Springs Museum is a must on your vacation. Again only a short walk from the house, or use the beach cruiser bikes. Free Thursday night movie nights (check calendar) and free admission to museum between 4 -8 pm. Every Thursday night of the year, except Christmas week, enjoy Street Fair, where the entire street is closed for walking to see local artisians, restaurants, live music between 5-9pm.

Be sure to take a hike, even if a short distance, up the mountain at the end of Ramon Street, to see the entire valley floor, windmills, airport, full 360 degree view of the stunning mountain range. Star home tours can be arranged and touring is provided in small vans for a very intimate experience. See where the stars lived, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, just to name a few. For a night of dancing, you can't leave the desert without stepping back into the Sinatra years at the famous piano lounge of Melvyn's at the Ingelside Inn. A very historic hotel. Meet the owner Melvyn and pick up his book on his life at the hotel with the Hollywood stars over the years. If you like dining out, this is the location for you. Many within walking distance but if needed a short 5 minute cab ride away. Restaurant recommendations upon request!

Palm Springs Film Festival, Mid-Century Modernism Week, El Paceo Fashion Week are some of the major attractions throughout the year in Palm Springs.
