About Barbara

We live in a cooler often chilly climate in Northern California. Palm Springs offers us a place to switch gears, warm our bones and provides us a delightful environment to engage nature and enjoy the many enlivening activites in the desert.

Barbara purchased this house in 2009

Why Barbara chose Palm Springs

We have been traveling to Palm Springs with good friends who owned a home in the desert since 2001. We were excited to find a home in a natural desert setting that we could renovate, enjoy and share with others!

Like a dream

  • 5 of 5
This was my third visit to Palm Springs but first time renting a house and not staying in a hotel. This was also my husband and my first time visiting with friends...friends who have never been to Palm Springs before. Needless to say, it was the best week we've all had in a long time. (Dramatically enough, maybe ever?) The Hillside Retreat was even more beautiful in person. It was private, quiet, and the perfect home to experience and share with our friends. We spent most days hanging poolside, and the evenings as well. Four months later we still talk about it and hope to return on a regular basis. And also thanks to Barbara for being so wonderful to work with !

Pure relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
Every detail has been thought of in this great vacation home. From the minute you walk through the front door it was very comfortable and relaxing. The location of the home couldn't be better, everything is close by. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and there wasn't one thing we needed that wasn't provided for in the home. This home is a 10/10!! We will definitely return.

Wow, It's Beautiful!

Wow, It's Beautiful!
  • 5 of 5
That was the comment we all made when we pulled up to the gate, and it just got better from there. From the pictures, you know it is a beautiful home, but the experience is 100 times better. It gave me that perfect "Palm Springs Feeling" that I was looking for. It's in the perfect neighborhood. It's quiet, clean, spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated.
Everyone had their own space if they wanted it, but we could all hang out together in the same space and cook and talk and laugh and have a great time, too.
Barbara was great and we never had any issues to call the property manager for. Perfect, Perfect, Perfect-I give it 10 Stars!!

Fabulous, well-appointed modern house!

  • 5 of 5
Our group (4 adults and two 11-year-olds) spent a lovely long weekend in Barbara's beautiful home. Great views from almost every window. So well appointed that you could simply bring your tooth brush and do just fine. The bedrooms are good-sized and private, all with their own bathrooms. The living space is brilliant -- cosy living room on one end, open living space off the kitchen on the other end. Very open and uncluttered. Everything ran incredibly smoothly, and we had not one worry the whole stay! We all had a terrific time!

Extraordinary "retreat" in Palm Springs

Extraordinary "retreat" in Palm Springs
  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 (all adults) stayed at the Modern Hillside Retreat during the week we attended the Stagecoach Country Music Festival. It is truly an extraordinary home and a retreat from masses that were in Palm Springs and Indio for the week. Each detail is so well thought out from the arrival to the departure which made it a stress free week. Mornings on the front porch with coffee overlooking the valley below, the afternoons where you could not hear a sound by the pool except wildlife in the hills, to the evenings of stargazing by the firepit were just perfect. All of this and only 1.5 miles to downtown Palm Springs (truly so close, but yet so far). The kitchen was great for our family to prepare home cooked meals and enjoy each other vs fighting the crowds in town. Very well appointed. In addition, plenty of spots if you wanted your own personal space, each of the bedrooms (and casita) nicely appointed, and it was all so clean - spotless throughout. All of this and the house is beautiful. I am not a modern design person, but you could not help but appreciate the beauty of this home. Our entire family would recommend this home to anyone who is visiting Palm Springs or the surrounding communities. We look forward to our next visit with anticipation. Barbara is the best.

Owner's Response: Thank you Doug! We love knowing that you found a retreat for you and your family that brought you some serenity. Stargazing, family meals, quiet mornings with views down valley, seeing/hearing wildlife in the hills, time together decompressing after the excitement of the music festival, It was a delight having you and a pleasure to work with you. "Y'all come back now"!

Fabulous Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5
This house was fabulous. Every detail was well thought out and Barbara was helpful at every turn. We have rented many houses, and this one really stands out. It is in a great location, is very beautiful and close to really great hiking trails. The casita works out very nicely if you are sharing the house with another couple. We will definitely rent with Barbara again if we find our way back to Palm Springs, which I hope we do!

Modern Hillside Retreat is on a protected cul de sac nestled close to the San Jacinto Mountain Range on the South end of Palm Springs. It's typically wind-free due to the protection of the mountains. The Mesa is an established and vibrant neighborhood of about 180 unique homes with an interesting history. It is strictly a residential neighborhood except for the Moorten Botanical Garden founded by the first desert's horticulturalist.

There are a variety of architectural styles in the Mesa: Spanish, Adobe, California Ranch and Mid-Century Modern. Fabulous examples include: Donald Wexler's Butterfly-Style homes, Alexander homes and the nearby 1930's 'Ship of the Desert' home. Local celebrities include: Barry Manilow, Suzanne Somers, Trina Turk, Herman Wouk.

The Mesa is a neighborhood with diverse and friendly residents who love their slice of pardise in the Palm Springs desert while relaxing, walking, interacting and enjoying its beauty.

Note: Google Map image is NOT updated!

Golf: This home is just 5 minutes away from many fabulous golf courses including Indian Canyons Golf Club (North and South courses), Canyon Estates Golf Club, Mesquite Country Club and Tahquitz Creek Golf Course. 10 minutes away in Cathedral City are Cimarron Golf Club and Cathedral Canyon Country Club. Within 30 minutes are country clubs in Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and La Quinta. There are over 120 golf courses in the greater Coachella Valley to choose from and experience.
