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!

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

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.

Fabulous neighbors and Raquet Club Estates community.

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!

AS GOOD AS ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5
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! :)

PERFECTION!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of four women try to get to the Palm Springs area at least twice a year. We've stayed in many nice VRBO properties. However, this was the best! It felt like every step further into the house was a surprise. The attention to detail was amazing. We just kept noticing more and more things as the weekend went on. We took full advantage of the beautiful pool and backyard. There were so many amenities. It may sound silly, but the idea that there was an ample supply of spices, coffee filters, foil, extra paper towels, etc. made a big difference. Who remembers to bring foil, or who wants to bring their own spices? As I said, silly, but wonderful! You can tell that the owners love their home, and have gone above and beyond to make it comfortable and fun. The idea that one bedroom had twin beds made it ideal for a girl's weekend, and would be great for families with children. We can't wait to visit again!

HIDDEN OASIS RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
All I can say is WOW! The moment we pulled into the driveway I knew the home would not disappoint! A group of six of us ladies stayed the weekend at the Martini Palms for my bachelorette party. I wanted to do something fun, relaxing, and stay somewhere everyone would enjoy. Boy did we! The outdoor bar is equipped with sound system, mini fridge and pool room with as many floaties and pool noodles as you would need. The pool was gorgeous and a great size. We basically were in and out of the pool all weekend. The rooms are very spacious, beds are super comfortable, and the bathrooms are bright and clean. The kitchen is fully stocked with glasses, cookware, baking dishes, coffee and creamer, etc! The only comment I would make is that there was no filtered water, but is cheap enough to buy at the grocery store 2 blocks from the home. I would love to revisit the martini palms and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy all there is to enjoy in Palm Springs.
