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!

Truly enjoyed our stay at martini palms. The home was lovely, exactly as advertised and incredibly relaxing. Really appreciated all the nice small touches too... apple tvs, iphone chargers plugged into the wall and ready for our use, bottles of water in the fridge, fully stocked pool room, etc. Totally just everything we needed to feel at home, when not at home. GREAT pool, cabana and outdoor bar as well. Definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. :)

Palm Springs weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a house to spend a relaxing weekend away with the girls and found the perfect place! Martini Palms was so nice, clean and had everything we could want or need for the weekend! Location was excellent and very close to the main drag and grocery stores for the daily essentials. The private pool and floaties were used all day while we spent time chatting and catching up in the sun. I highly recommend this house for couples, families, or a small group of girls.

Truly the home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Hands down one of the best vrbos I have ever stayed at! My husband and I booked this place for our first "friendcation" and could not have been more pleased! Tim was quick with responses during the initial booking phase and very easy to contact throughout our stay. The place is impeccably decorated (pictures do not do it justice!), very clean and well maintained. The backyard is the perfect entertaining space and we spent the majority of our stay lounging in the gorgeous pool, eating under the covered patio, and enjoying the comfy outdoor lounge area. This place is one of the most well stoked vrbos we have ever stayed at as well. Truly every convenience of home was thought of from eye masks in the bedroom to ziploc bags and an array of cooking equipment and spices in the kitchen. We will most definitely be coming back! Thank you for the amazing hospitality!

if not a little better. house is not large, but well laid out and the main point is to be outside anyhow. great pool and excellent pool floaties and chaises and outside umbrellas. owners have been very thoughtful to include nice amenities like bathrobes and hotel-style bathroom products - very nice touches.
owner was also extremely easy to work with. i definitely recommend it.

Wonderful weekend getaway house!

  • 5 of 5
What a delight it was to come for a girls weekend away here! The house was so welcoming when we arrived, the A/C keeping it cool and music playing. Everything was immaculate and well taken care of. Love the modern decor. Perfect for families or a girls getaway. The one thing I wish is that we would've stayed longer than two nights! Oh, and don't forget about the pool room off the side of the house! It has floaties, rafts, towels, an air pump… We missed out on it completely until we discovered the key on the table under all our stuff on the last day, haha! :)
