About Tim Biggs

We live full-time in Manhattan Beach with our two kids and two French bulldogs. We love taking weekend trips to the desert, so decided that buying a second home in Palm Springs would be the perfect solution to more desert time. The kids love the pool and we love the peace and beauty that Palm Springs offers.

Tim Biggs purchased this house in 2011

Why Tim Biggs chose Palm Springs

We've always wanted a mid-century modern home and loved the community of Racquet Club Estates and the wide variety of homes in this neighborhood. RCE is one of the largest neighborhoods comprised of Alexander and Meiselman homes. We preferred the lay-out of a Meiselman over the more common Alexanders. Having two separated bedroom areas offer greater privacy for other friends and family. We instantly fell in love with this house, and knew that adding some of our personal touches would make it the perfect desert home for us.

What makes this house unique

Morning sunrise views of the mountains from the backyard with a cup of coffee.

The privacy and tranquility of the backyard and pool.

Wall of glass windows overlooking the pool from the kitchen and living room.

Fabulous neighbors and Raquet Club Estates community.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Extraordinary accommodations. Almost every detail thought out and taken care of. Perfect, quiet neighborhood to relax in. Wish we had taken walks in the evening to take in the beautifully lit-up houses around us. We hope to make this a yearly tradition. What a perfect escape from the brutal winter of 2014!

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

Tim is the best VRBO host that we have ever come across. Very on top of things, but not intrusive. The place itself is thought out out to the last square inch. I mean what place has a real (new) computer that ties into a printer? The location is perfect for Palm Springs, quiet side street, just a walk from all the fun of Palm Springs. The pool is great, the outdoor areas are great (we made it a mission to make sure we had a meal at every seating option) If you are looking to rent a place, you will not be disappointed, if you are, then you will be diappointed anywhre yout stay.

UH-MAZ-ING

  • 5 of 5

Martini Palms was everything we would thought it would be + a million times more. The house was gorgeous, pool was amazing. We used uber to go into town at night and it was so convienent and close to everything. We loved the little details in the house from handy iPhone chargers to disposal razors. These amenities thought out down to the smallest details! We will be recommending this to everyone who may be vacationing in Palm Springs. Thanks Tim & Rick!!!

Perfect!

Our second visit to Tim's house Martini Palms (see my previous review March 2014) and we were not disappointed. The house continues to be as promised, great location, very private back yard, bar area and outdoor seating. Tim really goes above and beyond ensuring a complete package of a house that is well maintained, tastefully decorated and comfortable for a range of guest types. As a family we usually like to explore but this time we stayed put. We had great weather and spent every day in and around the pool with our 3 daughters. The time spent at the house allowed us to rest, sleep, enjoy good food and in the evenings spend quality time playing board games (provided at the house) with our girls, ensuring lots of laughter which is priceless. If you are searching for properties I would stop now. Martini Palms will give you a taste of Palm Springs in a beautifully well appointed home that is managed by a very considerate owner.

Spring Break in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

The location of this fabulous home is close to anything you would need, but with the large outdoor space and great pool, there is little reason to leave! Tim thought of everything and was always quick with responses. I am so glad we decided to rent this house instead of staying in a hotel!

Wonderful house, beautiful and well appointed, and great communication with owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Tim's beautiful house and barely left the whole time. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a weekend away. We cooked all our meals and the kitchen was well equipped for that. The beds were very comfy, and the robes kept us warm and cozy all weekend. The pool is lovely, and the private outdoor seating made it easy to spend all our time outside.

Communication with Tim was easy and he was very responsive. We'd love to come back sometime.

Perfect oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Martini Palms! This was our first time renting a vacation property, but it won't be our last. The house has everything we wanted to enjoy a relaxing week in the sunshine. We chose to heat the pool, which was a wise decision for this time of year. Our kids spent just about all day every day playing in the pool with many of the floats, noodles and toys from the pool room. We loved the covered lounge area for coffee in the morning, lunch and later on for a little rest under the stars. The outdoor bar was very convenient for afternoon refreshments. Tim was very responsive to any questions we had and made us feel very welcome - he even left a bottle of wine for us upon our arrival. We didn't want to leave and hope to be back next year!
