Our love affair with Palm Springs happened seven years ago when we were seeking reprieved from the Oregon rain. We love the Movie Colony East neighborhood. It's walking distance to Ruth Hardy Park and downtown. Located at the based of the San Jacinto Mountains. Excellent location on a very quiet street of architectural homes. Casa Verbena rests on a double sized nearly 1/3 acre lot with full south and western exposure and mountain views.
Casa Verbena featuring California Desert mid-century style, this home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, two separate living areas and attached garage. Entertain in style with a beautiful spacious kitchen boasting eat-in counter bar and stainless steel appliances. A gorgeous saltwater pool and waterfall spa will welcome you to relax in tranquility. A dramatic backyard are showcased and surrounded by desert landscaping with views of the Indian Canyons and San Jacinto Mountains. The integration of indoor and outdoor spaces enhances the ambience offered by this true Palm Springs living gem. The living quarters are laid out with a concrete stained concrete floor. As you enter through the double entry door that has a full sight to the backyard. Your decorating senses come alive with mid century inspired furnishings. Your desert oasis awaits you.
We had a great weekend. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet. Spent quite a bit of time in the relaxing jacuzzi. Love the house decor. Thanks!
We stayed for a week at Casa Verbena. It has cute curb appeal from the front and is in a neighborhood close to many amenities and downtown. The house itself was clean and cute but has DIY renovations stamped all over it. The wiring and plug ins were a going concern as they were old and we actually had to have an electrician come during our stay to try and sort the issues out. It was a little unsettling.
The back yard was fantastic and the pool, hot tub and fire pit were the main draw. We spent many hours hanging out in the back yard.
During our stay Palm Springs had a large rainstorm and that resulted in the power going out for almost 24 hours - which was a huge inconvenience. The pool and hot tub were out of commission, the food in the fridge went bad, we rummaged around to find some candles to light and then ended up bringing blankets and wine out to the gas firepit for a few hours. Once we returned I inquired about a credit back from the owners and never received a reply.... (I realize that the storm was not their fault but we lost a lot of food and were really inconvenienced).
The same period we were in Palm Springs another group of friends were there as well in another VRBO house rental. We made a couple trips between houses and realized that our rental as quite over priced compared the vrbo house rental the other group got.
Overall it was decent, but if it wasn't for the back yard this would be a 3* at best.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Verbena! it is a lovely house with wonderful amenities. Everything you could possibly need, was there. We lounged poolside daily and enjoyed the gas firepit and jacuzzi at night. Downtown was a short, cheap Uber ride. We would love to return and continue creating new memories!
Our family and another family were lucky enough to stay at Casa Verbena over Spring Break!! The house and the pool are AMAZING!! The pictures on VRBO don't do it justice. The décor is beautiful (and has left me wanting to change almost everything about my own home), the private yard makes it so enjoyable to enjoy the pool and spa and the home itself it set up perfectly for entertaining a group. We walked to Ruth Hardy Park every day for some wiffle ball and relaxation. We also took the quick trip into downtown for Villagefest and some amazing food at Azul! Thank your to Andrew, Monica and Greg for making our Spring Break 2014 one to remember. We will be back ASAP.
Four of us went to Palm Spring to celebrate a 60th birthday. We had a great time!! The house was exactly as advertised. Very quiet residential location yet close to everything. We loved the private pool and hot tub. Our only regret is we didn't stay a little longer. The owner was great to work with and the property manager very attentive. Highly recommend this house. We are thinking of making it an annual trip!!
What a great find! We rented this property for a weekend getaway with a few of our friends. The layout was open and airy, and the owners really thought about everything to make this a comfortable home to rent. There were plenty of beach towels and rafts for the pool, the beds were comfy, and the house was really well put together. We lounged in the pool, made lunch on the bbq and enjoyed the beautiful weather here for the last weekend of summer. The house was really close to downtown - about a $7 cab ride to the main strip. But honestly we spent more time at the house than going out because it was so relaxing and fun. We will absolutely be back!
We loved the property, and had an amazing weekend. We wished it was a slightly warmer weekend so we could have lounged even longer each day by the pool. We still managed to enjoy it though. The decor of the place was perfectly what we wanted. The kitchen was easy to use and we pretty much made all our meals at home. The master bed was super comfortable. And the place was conveniently located so that we could enjoy some shopping and an unexpected parade. We definitely hope to return again next year. Thanks.
