My family and friends love to get to our house in the desert when everything slows down and we just get to have fun. I grew up on the east coast, live in the northwest, and this desert getaway provides much needed sun, warmth, rest, and fun.

Lori Cray purchased this house in 2005

I have always loved the desert and the life that thrives in a place that provides such natural beauty on a daily basis. This area has gorgeous mountain views in every direction that just take my breath away. I never tire of marvelling at the natural surroundings and yet when I need to immerse myself in some social fun, this area provides a variety of things to do, indoors and out.

This house meets the needs of every type of guest we have ever entertained. From the views in the living room to the hot tub and pool out back, there is something for everbody to marvel at in this mid century home. There is a sense of history that can be explored by going on a celebrity tour of Palm Springs or talking to the locals about establishments that are still in operation that were frequented by the stars of yesteryear. Every thursday night downtown Palm Springs closes the main street to hold a street fair which attracts quite an ecclectic group of locals and toursits. There is an off leash dog park near the airport that provides for all size dogs' entertainment, socialization, and exercise needs.

AMAZING VALUE IN GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I booked Lori's home for a girl's weekend in Palm Springs, with 9 of us flying in from all over the country. There are three bedrooms on the property, plus a few air mattresses, so sleeping arrangements were cozy but not impossible! The pool was clean and perfect for beating the summer heat-- no need to pay for heating if you come this time of year!

This home is in a great location. It's little community is across the street from a grocery store and a starbucks, plus a gas station. Down the street you'll find chain shopping and restaurants, and you're less than 10 mins from the airport!

We had dinner in downtown Palm Springs (15 minute drive) and visited Trio & the Village Pub. Both great finds! One afternoon we drove about 15 minutes in the opposite direction and ended up at the River mall, which had great restaurants (highly recommend Agua Pazza!) and shopping as well.

This house was the perfect spot for a relaxed girls vacation. We loved every minute! I recommend heading to the house before you stop for any groceries/supplies--you might get lucky like we did and get to take advantage of a couple bottles of wine left behind by the last people! The citrus trees in the backyard were a great bonus and made for delicious mimosas in the morning!

House was clean, smelled good, and was the very best part of our whole trip. Only detractor was the clicking made by the living room ceiling fan...we found that it was actually cooler in there once we turned it off, so that worked just fine!

BEST value I've seen on all of VRBO. Will definitely stay here again!!

WARM AND WELCOMING

  • 5 of 5
Watch the stars and moon over the palm trees while floating in the pool. A quiet place with a great layout and lots of comfortable furniture. We went to fairs in town, gentle walks in the neighborhood, up the mountain tram for a cool walk/picnic and the local desert zoo is incredible. Hit Disney at the end of wonderful week on way to airport in LA. This is a place to come back to for relaxation and fun.

COMFORTABLE MID CENTURY!

  • 5 of 5
Sometimes mid-century properties are a bit, well, too "mid-century" for my taste - a bit sterile, cold, flat, and hard, but stylish! Well, this home has the good mid-century lines and design and style, all the while being comfortable, clean, livable, and cozy, not stuffy or precious. Pictures do not do it justice! I think the living room has about the softest, plushest, most stylish shag carpet I have ever seen or felt! I could not enter the room without taking my shoes off to feel it! Each bedroom is large and comfortable, with great beds, and the 3 baths made things easy in the morning for each guest. The pool, hot tub, and natural gas grill are simply perfect, as is the location. At first I thought it might be a bit too far from the action of downtown, but it is nicely situated in an upscale, golf course neighborhood, near great shopping, Trader Joe's and good restaurants. And downtown is only an easy 10 minute drive. An abundance of fruit on the citrus trees made wonderful drinks, and an amazing marinade for grilled chicken! Bunnies in the morning and early evenings were a delight to watch as well! The owner was quick to respond, accommodating, and great to deal with. If you want a rental with great style, good location, and upscale amenities at a reasonable price, this is a wonderful choice!

GREAT HOMESTEAD

  • 5 of 5
We spent three nights there and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and spacious. It was evident that the owners had put a lot of thought into incidentals - they had thought of everything you could possibly want. The location was convenient and the golf course was very nice. Highly recommend this property!

LAY BACK AND RELAX!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself and another couple from Chicago spent this past weekend at Lori's wonderful home. It was pure bliss and a perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life.
Lori thought of absolutely everything and the house is not only incredibly beautiful, stylish and comfortable; but lovingly equipped for a weekend, week or monthlong stay. Lori went above and beyond to accommodate our tight travel schedule and was incredibly responsive to everything. The house is Palm Springs perfection and allowed me to fulfill all of my glamorous Rat-Pack-Era dreams--lounging by the pool cocktail in hand, shaking up drinks at the bar, sweeping through the sliding glass doors in a caftan, etc!
We really enjoyed sitting in the hot tub at night under the stars, grilling up feasts on the bar-b-que and the fabulous candles that are everywhere and fill the house with the scent of the desert and a luxury spa all rolled into one!
We can't wait to go back!!!
