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

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!

Fabulous Palm Springs

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!

An ideal home in an ideal place. Everything that we could have wanted during our time at this property had been anticipated, from pool accessories to kitchen implements. We could not have been more satisfied and content, and we look forward to the time when we return.

Release yourself from the annoyances of resort vacationing, and embrace the privacy, beauty, and luxury of this home. Many thanks again, Barbara.

Map

Car: recommended

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.
