We grew up in the same small town in rural Northeast Iowa. When we are not working, we enjoy anything outdoors, including, camping, boating, and hiking. Traveling has always been our passion, particularly the west coast. We fell in love with California the first time we visited. We especially loved the warm climate of Palm Springs. We also really fell in love with the architecture of the homes there and the rich history of this great town.

Nick Holm purchased this house in 2012

We really enjoy the mid-century styling and history of these homes in Palm Springs. When we began looking at homes there that was our primary focus. We found this property and fell in love with its location. It's within close walking distance of downtown but is very quiet and relaxing at night and in the morning. It made for the perfect desert retreat for us.

We really loved the architecture of this house and the spectacular mountain views that it offers both from the patio area and also from the pool and spa. It was everything we wanted in a mid-century house in Palm Springs.

PALM SPRINGS - SECURITY CAMERAS

  • 1 of 5
We booked this property well in advance for a busy concert weekend and were looking forward to our stay. The home had nice appliances and we were looking forward to the outside BBQ and pool. The carpet seemed a bit worn as others have mentioned already. The master bathroom’s lack of a door made the master bedroom feel awkward since you essentially had to close off the room entirely to use the restroom.

The owner contacted us minutes after arrival via text message requesting the contact information of additional guests he viewed on a security camera. These friends were simply waiting for their rental to be ready and since there were only 7 of us at the location and it claims an 8 person capacity we found this odd.

These cameras were not mentioned in the listing or agreement and when we located the cameras there were several including a camera that captures the BBQ, outside dining area, and pool “Tanning Deck” (pictured in the listing) which we considered to be private areas. Now knowing that we were being watched made us uncomfortable so we did not rush out to the pool area as planned.

This was not welcoming and since we felt uncomfortable utilizing the pool and were unsure if other cameras were present and hidden we concluded that staying at the location all weekend was not going to be the relaxing weekend we were looking for.

We were fortunate enough to secure another location at the last minute and left the home. A renter’s privacy should be respected and we felt ours was not so we felt like we made the right move so we could enjoy the rest of the weekend un-interrupted. These camera's are not pictured so if this concerns you as it did us please contact the owner prior to booking.

Owner's Response: Whitney's party arrived at the house approximately an hour and a half prior to check-in. They tripped the motion detectors on our alarm prompting me to check the cameras. She had booked the house for two people and that’s all I was expecting to be there, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw 10 people and a dog that she didn’t inform me was coming either. They were all unloading luggage into the house which tells me they were all staying. I contacted Whitney simply asking her how many people were going to be staying in the house that weekend. Palm Springs has very strict occupancy guidelines that we must adhere to. Whitney didn't like me breaking up the party that they were setting up for and they decided to leave on there own. Whitney did not respond when contacted, which left it impossible for me to resolve any issues they had with the property. The security cameras are pointed at the two main entrances in the front of the house. They are NOT pointed at any private areas of our property. They are there simply for the protection of our home and its guests. They are in very plain view. It is also stated very clearly in our rental agreement that these cameras are on our property. Whitney told me she had read and understood our rental agreement. These cameras have been on our house since we started renting our property. Our home is a beautiful, quiet place to enjoy your desert vacation. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I would be more than happy to answer them. Please also see our other reviews that more accurately represent our home.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
6 of us travelled to Palm Springs from Canada for a celebration of our graduation. It was a great place to stay with a group of girlfriends! The house was very well kept and offers a fully equipped kitchen and lovely seating areas to enjoy your own meals. With a car, it is a short drive to go out to Indian Canyons, which we did for a couple of hikes. The pool and hot tub were great additions. Would return! Thanks Nick!

PS GETAWAY

  • 3 of 5
We went to PS for a trip with large group of friends that were staying in two houses. The location was pretty good, private pool and hot tub were awesome. The main bathroom door lock was broken didn't work which was a bit awkward with couples sharing a bathroom. The faucet handle kept falling off in the bathroom, the robe hook was loose in the wall, and there were some basics like a kitchen sponge missing.
The owner was friendly, but it was a bit creepy that he texted me on arrival wanting to know how many people were staying at the house. I guess he could see through the security camera that people were coming and going. It was just friends staying at the other house stopping by since we were sharing two cars. Once I explianed the situation he was cool about it, however, it made us feel 'watched' which is not exactly a relaxing getaway. Nonetheless, the house was overall fairly clean and decent with awesome back yard pool. I would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: The renters did not let us know of what they found broken in the house during their stay. Our home is checked over after each renter leaves but these must have been overlooked. They will be remedied in the future. As for the cameras the renters showed up with many more people than they stated were going to be there and were asked about it. They should have let us know prior to arrival that there was going to be extra guests. The cameras are there pointed at the entrance of the house. They are there for the security of the house and its tenants. We're glad you enjoyed the house and the pool.

PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This was our favorite girls' trip! The house looks exactly like the photos and has all of the amenities. We especially enjoyed the amazing backyard pool area. The pictures don't do it justice. We spent every evening in the fenced backyard by the gas fire pits, and ate all of our meals outside. The pool area was awesome for relaxing and enjoying the perfect weather. The views were great, and it is only about a mile walk to anything you need and the heart of the downtown. We loved every minute of it!

FUN, FUN, FUN

  • 5 of 5
Group of 7 high school girlfriends (now seniors) got together for a getaway weekend. House was great, fully stocked -- including electric margarita maker (we didn't use). Owner great to work with, very responsive. Great neighborhood for walks. Again, only negative as mentioned, master-bath no door, but we worked around it too... I know owners are looking into solution. Great dinners at Kaiser & Lulu's, love the Thur night street fair.

REVIEW

  • 5 of 5
The swimming pool and hot tub were great- and all amenities, appliances- washer, dryer etc were new and great. My only problem as an older person was that the king bed was too low for me to get in and out of...(poor knees). The house is nicely decorated. The location is central and a positive for sure. Young children may also have a problem with the pool (no railing) as would disabled people. Otherwise I highly recommend the property. The younger adult people in the party loved it all. We always go to Mary's Restaurant (not too far away) and the Palm Springs art gallery (also not far away). You might be able to stay here without a car if you were younger and used to walking.
