Overview

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Nestled against the spectacular San Jacinto Mountains, this updated mid-century gem provides a peaceful poolside retreat in classic Palm Springs style. Wake up in the master bedroom to an unbeatable view of the golden hills and throw open the glass doors to savor true California indoor/outdoor living. This, four bedroom, three bath, residence is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with a completely private, grassy back yard and aquamarine pool and spa. The furnishings, entertainment systems and linens are all new with a blend of contemporary and vintage modernism. You and your friends can cook up a storm in the comfortable and well-equipped gourmet kitchen with outdoor built in BBQ and large counter and spend the evening star gazing by the fire pit or mosey into town by car or foot to one of Palm Springs’ outstanding restaurants.

Vista Las Palmas is one of Palm Springs’ classic neighborhoods abounding with the simple modernity of Alexander houses, the ghosts of the Rat Pack, and mountain views that are free of power lines and utility poles. It’s just fifteen minutes on foot or five by car to Palm Canyon Drive where you’ll find world class restaurants, art galleries, boutiques and shops. If you have more ambitious recreational plans, you’ll be ten to fifteen minutes from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Tahquitz Canyon for hiking and the Spa Resort Casino. Opportunities for golfing, tennis and biking are all around you. If you’re driving in from Los Angeles, Vista Las Palmas is conveniently located just as you enter Palm Springs; for those of you coming from further it’s only fifteen minutes from the Palm Springs International Airport.

Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an excellent stay at this beautiful house in a quiet cul-de-sac. The house was completely stocked with anything you could possibly need and much much more. The backyard was large and, in addition to the pool and jacuzzi areas, had a couple of green spaces where the kids could play. Ken, the owner, was also kind enough to contact us a couple of times to ensure everything was to our liking. I would strongly recommend this house. Thanks again Ken!

LAZY DAYS AND FOOD-FILLED NIGHTS

  • 5 of 5
Six of us arrived to celebrate a birthday in total seclusion, and boy did we pick the right place. Quietly located on a cul-de-sac in Vista Las Palmas, we had everything we needed (and if we hadn't, it was clear Ken or Quentin would get it to us immediately) to celebrate the birthday in style.

If I didn't know better, I'd swear Ken and Quentin made sure the weather was perfect, too… but it is certain they made their backyard perfect for good weather - the pool was big and the water warm, allowing us to float for hours while reading or napping. And lounge chairs aplenty for sunning and napping. Don't get me started on the spa - room for 12, I'd say. For the 6 of us, it was just perfect. And a fire pit built into the ground right next to it, with a comfy lounge set in an L around… perfect for the evenings while we cooked on the outdoor grill, and after dinner, for drinks and conversation. And the view… mountains hanging over us outside, and the morning sun would light them up gloriously - a fantastic way to start the day.

The house is stocked with all you'd need, and once we'd provisioned ourselves, we rarely left (maybe to restock, and once for Thanksgiving dinner out at friends). Plenty of cookware, dishes, glassware… you name it, they had it. It's a house stocked to entertain - we had friends over for dinner a couple of nights and it was a breeze cooking in the kitchen.

The townie bikes are such a great idea, and in excellent condition. Kudos to Ken and Quentin for providing helmets as well… thoughtful and smart. We all took rides almost every day, winding through the neighborhood looking at the beautiful mid-century architecture everywhere you turn, and venturing into town (it's that close!) to check out the specialty shops.

Our last evening we gave ourselves a reprieve and brought in a chef (at Ken's recommendation) for the final meal, and it was culinary perfection. Joseph was professional, charming, thorough, and, above all, an excellent chef. I only wish I had his card in front of me so I could give his full name… but if you're ever at the house and want to treat yourselves even more, Ken can provide his info, I'm sure.

Leaving was easy only because the final day was overcast… again, as if Ken and Quentin made it that way so our exit wasn't depressing.

Thanks to both Ken and Quentin for creating a lovely oasis in the desert where you can kick back, relax, and never leave the property without feeling like you're missing something.

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Ken's house for 1 week - and it was just perfect!
The house has everything you need and it has it in style - from kitchen equipment to the SONOS sound system, from bathroom to living room. The outside comprises a phenomenal view, a great pool and jacuzzi and an awesome BBQ place - what else do you need?. We enjoyed our time very much.
Also Ken was very helpful and responsive throughout the whole time!
Thanks again for the perfect vacation! Would recommend the house strongly.

Fabulous - the perfect holiday home!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this house for part of our three week vacation and wished that we had booked it for the whole three weeks. The house itself was immaculate and luxurious and the outside area was wonderful. The spa especially was amazing - you could stand up in it, it was so deep. There was everything you needed to make this a home from home. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials and there was so many extras - we were amazed! The house was in a lovely, peaceful part of Palm Springs but only a short drive to the main shopping area.

Ken was a wonderful person to deal with - from booking through to departure he was so helpful and kind. We would definitely go back again and have recommended this house to all our family and friends.

I would rate it 10 star if I could!!

Excellent stop on Honeymoon travels!

  • 5 of 5
Had a brilliant 5 day stop here in July / August on our Honeymoon. The property was smart, clean and had everything you would need for a peaceful few days by the pool. The outside areas were great for soaking up the sun all day! Ken was really helpful when we booked and when arranging arrival / departure details. Would definitely recommend it as a place to spend a few days - will be returning if we travel this way in the future!

GREAT for families with young kids! Will exceed your expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation was fabulous! This house is well equipped, well maintained, clean and comes with a thorough house manual. We're always suspicious about renting a house. This house will far exceed your expectations. We traveled with another family and it worked out perfectly. Definitely enough space for 4 young kids and 4 adults. Love that there was plenty of space indoors and outdoors right at the house to keep everyone happy. Husbands enjoyed controlling the music, lights, pool & spa temp right from their phones and working the BBQ grill. Kids looked forward to the fire-pit to make smores every night after a full day in the pool. Moms enjoyed the Vitamix for happy hour all day long and for a house with NO stairs to worry about with the kids! And, the AC works great for those hot Palm Springs days. The owners and property manager were always helpful. Thanks for a great family vacation creating awesome family memories that we will all cherish!
