MODERNIST MOUNTAIN VIEWS - VISTA LAS PALMAS - QUIET CUL DE SAC

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.

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!

Perfect for Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with 5 girlfriends for 3 nights and it was wonderful!
The house is clean and spacious, plenty of room for 6 adults. We made good use of the pool, bikes and fire pit. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, we cooked several meals during our stay. The neighborhood is gorgeous and the owners were a pleasure to work with. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfectly Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is the 2nd time myself and 7 other women have stayed here for our girls weekend and everything was even more perfect than the first. The house and grounds are always immaculate and the beds, pillows and bedding are extremely comfortable and the house is a great location (very close to downtown). If you need anything Ken, he is always available via phone or text within minutes. The 8 of us who stayed here all agree that this place is perfect and we have already booked our trip for next year. You won't be disappointed when renting this home, if you are debating between 2 houses, I would definitely pick this one!

50th Birthday in High Style!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I spent a week celebrating my 50th at this fantastic property. Even with 8 of us it never felt cramped. The indoor/outdoor feel of the property lends to that feeling.

Every amenity of the house was great. We played croquet on the larger-than-it-looks-in-the-pictures grass area. We rode the bikes into town and they're so easy to ride. The bedding, pillows, towels, etc. were top notch and clean. In fact, the whole was very clean. The lighting is amazing throughout the house...most, if not all, are on dimmers so you can create your own ambiance.

Luckily I have a very saavy "techy" friend because the sound system, spa, pool, tv's are all on remote controls. They do have a detailed instruction guide with pics to walk you through. Ken was always ready to help if we needed him. His motto is "if it's taking more than 5 mins., call me". Now that's customer service!

The kitchen is STOCKED with just about every appliance, glass, plate, bottle opener, paper towels, etc. you'll need. I had a party one night and their modern, white dishware & serving platters fit my theme (White Party) perfectly, and there were enough of them. It couldn't have worked out ANY better!

The pool was great, but everyone was blown away by the spa. The "deep end" (4 ft., I think) is such a great idea. It's a novelty to be able to stand in a spa and stretch your legs. The entire outdoor area is awesome and is THE BEST for a group/party.

...just be mindful of the 10pm neighborhood noise curfew, which is understandable for the residents, but I found it a bit restrictive as a guest. We were always wondering, "Are we talking too loud?" and we were just using the spa at night.

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to find that the house & property as a whole is a lot larger than it appears in the pics posted. For example, the pic of the Master Bath does not do it justice. It's MUCH larger and has a door out to the backyard. It was great to wake up and take a quick swim if I wanted to.

Ken was the perfect host. He had just the right balance of keeping in touch to make sure everything is okay, and leaving you alone to enjoy your time. Ken was also very generous with allowing us an early "check-in" and late "check-out". It was very easy dealing & communicating with him during all phases of the rental process.

I could not have picked a better property to celebrate my 50th and look forward to a return visit in the future!
