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.

Cool Mid-Century Modern Home with Sparkling Pool

  • 5 of 5
This home was everything we needed for a couples getaway. Six of us, all twenty-somethings, stayed in the house for two nights and loved every minute of it. It was the perfect size for our group. The pool was awesome and provided a nice shade during the hot sun. Loved having the grill too, and there was plenty of seating for all of us inside and out. Nick was responsive to our requests/questions and was awesome to work with. The only downfall was the jacuzzi heat - the new system wasn't allowing the spa to heat up. Luckily, it was so hot out that it didn't bother us too much--I think he is fixing it soon anyway :) Two thumbs up, would definitely stay here again.

Overall pretty good experience

  • 3 of 5
Overall we had a good stay at this home but I probably would not rent it again.

PROS-
1. Nice size house, everything was clean when we arrived (except pool)
2. Close to downtown restaurants/shops
3. Easy to get in/out with the punch code and not having to deal with keys

CONS
1. Pool was dirty when we arrived (well after check-in time). Nothing we couldn't easily clean up in a few minutes (leaves, bugs, etc) but being a paying guest you expect not to have to do this.

2. A/C is controlled remotely by the owner. It never got very cool inside but it was comfortable.

3. On Saturday night the next door neighbors called the cops on us to complain about noise. There were 4 people sitting out around the pool, it was 9pm, and there was no music playing.. just people chatting. Having the cops come interrupt our night was annoying, even though the cops said they couldn't hear anything when they pulled up and didn't even give us a warning.

Owner's Response: In response to a couple of concerns that Lindsay had on our house.
1. The pool was cleaned that morning before there arrival. Not quite sure how a few leaves falling in the pool warrants it being dirty. It is bound to happen throughout the course of a day.
2. The A/C is not controlled remotely in the house. It has a set point that won't allow it to go below 73 degrees. It is not possible to cool the house any farther than that with the heat in the desert. Most residents in the desert keep there air on 82. The air is also programmed to shut off when any of the doors in the house are left open for an extended period of time. Lindsays group did this many times in there stay which will also cause the house to heat up.
3. I spoke with the Palm Springs police department about why the cops were called to our house that night. It was not a neighbor that called the police. Lindsay and her group tried to get out of paying a cab that dropped them off from downtown and the cab driver called the police on them. This had nothing to do with our property or our neighbors.

Great Location, Great Property, Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this property about a year ago and was on the site getting ready to book this home for another vacation this fall. I read the last two reviews and both appeared to be from visitors who did not follow the rules. Having myself owned VRBO properties in the past and also having also rented VRBO listed properties, I can only say that property owners have to take precautions (including cameras) to protect the property while it is vacant and also for security when occupied. I have read (and signed) the rental agreement this property owner uses and it clearly states the limits of how many guests can be present. The owner's of this property take great pride (that is evident!) in the home they own and lease but there are obviously some guests that choose to ignore the terms under which the property was offered. We enjoyed our stay at this home in 2013 and have booked another visit to this home in the fall of 2014 and plan to make annual visits to this property (assuming it is available). Instead of looking at these last two reviews from people who obviously violated many terms of their contract, look at the 22 reviews prior to these which give a far more accurate description of what you will find at this property. I spoke with Nick the other evening when booking and he described to me all the improvements which have been made to this home since our last visit and other improvements which will be implemented in the near future. There are users and abusers and in my estimation, these last two reviews are clearly from people who were intent on abusing and simply got caught. There are ants in the desert! If you leave the doors open they will find the cool air, too!

Horrible experience

  • 1 of 5
I wish I can give this property 0 stars. I visit palms springs quite often but this has to be my worst experience. I went on July 4th weekend and I got there pretty early because I didn't want to be stuck in traffic ( since many people go out of town for the weekend). All the times I've rented a house in palms springs, the owners were very nice and didn't mind about check in, except this one. The ac wouldn't work (it was 100 degrees out).But when I called the owner about the AC he was very rude. All he cared about was that we came in early and that I came with a few extra people, but it shows that the house is for 6-8 people and we were with 6 people, when all he had to do was tell us to close all the doors and the AC would turn on by itself. He even threatened to call the police. The kitchen was filled with ants and it went inside all the food.. I had to clean the kitchen plus by new groceries. The pool was dirty and I had to clean it myself. Overall, worst experience, I will never be renting from this owner again.

Owner's Response: Ani arrived at our house unannounced at 8:00 in the morning, check-in isn't until 3:00. We would have been more than happy to accommodate her early arrival had she let us know she wanted to come in early. The house was not ready yet for her to be there. Our pool man hadn't been there to clean the pool yet. Ani also sent me a very nasty email about two hours after her arrival that it was hot in the house. I checked the thermostat and also noticed that every door in the house had been left open. It is very hot in the desert in the summer and our air conditioner is programmed to shut off if the doors are left open for a extended periods of time. The air conditioning can't keep up with all that hot air coming in and will eventually freeze up if it does not shut down. I spoke to Ani on the phone and told her how to remedy the problem and she was very upset that she couldn't leave all the doors open and the air on. She also mentions in her review that I threatened to call the police on her. This is simply untrue.
I was also not made aware of the ant issue until reading her review. We have the house professionally sprayed once a month so they aren't a problem! Which they can be in the desert. They probably came in through the doors she left open and were attracted to the food she said she left out.
Ani also had four more guests than she booked the house for, this is also fine, we just have to be made aware of the extra people. We would have been more than happy to accommodate her extra guests.
If Ani would have made us aware of any of the problems she was having we would have remedied them immediately. She instead chose to wait until she got home to do it. We unfortunately couldn't fix her issues after the fact. To any future renters please let us know if you have any issues upon check-in. We are more than happy to help and want you to have a great stay in our home.

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!
