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!

Perfect Palm Springs Pad!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with our 17 year old and my 83 year old mom loved it here! We enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving week relaxing by the pool and hanging out. The owners have thought of every detail to make your stay easy ans enjoyable. Extremely clean, well stocked, great modern style. We had such a nice relaxing time. We've rented three other properties in Palm Springs and this is by far our favorite. Very quiet neighborhood. If you're here between Thanksgiving and New Years - check out "Robo Lights" the craziest post apocalyptic Christmas display of lights you'll ever see. Google it for directions.

Meiselman Home...

We loved this house from the moment we pulled up in the driveway. Clean, cool looking, great pool. Everything we needed for a great birthday weekend. We had 3 couples and it was plenty of room for all. We had a fabulous time. Thanks much!

Fantastic!

My husband and I came here for an early anniversary getaway. We had an absolutely wonderful time in this beautiful home! Everything was perfect, right down to the last detail - the decor was super, (we especially liked the cute dog statue :) in the bedroom) also very comfortable and relaxing - we really felt at home! The yard and pool flow nicely from the house, with plenty of space yet also cozy and intimate. The outdoor bar was great for keeping drinks cool by the pool, and sitting in the lounges by the pool at night was great for watching the beautiful sky full of stars while sipping wine - a very romantic and relaxing time! Everything was easy and smooth with check-in and out. We hope we can stay here again soon!

Loved the Martini Palms

  • 5 of 5
Great spot for a Girls Getaway! House is beautifully decorated, and the owners have included thoughtful touches throughout that make this a great vacation home. (Pool room fully stocked with towels, floats, sunscreens. Kitchen stocked with coffee and tea) There is a great covered lounging area by the pool with couches, and a table for 6 outside. Only downside is there are only 3 lounge chairs by the pool (and we had a group of 6). Tim, the owner was extremely responsive- checking in on us when we arrived and responding quickly to any queries. We didn't find any restaurants within walking area, but they are a short drive away, and there are great recommendations listed at the property. We will return!

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.
