Overview

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

From the designer who brought you 'Stardust', Vrbo property 299939: another exciting listing located in the heart of the Palm Springs MOVIE COLONY area.

Inspired by the cool vibe of Paul Desmond's jazz classic TAKE FIVE, this property seamlessly blends LUXURY with RELAXATION. Walled and gated for maximum privacy, 'Take Five' is tucked away on a secluded cul-de-sac only minutes from the heart of the PALM SPRINGS VILLAGE with it's shops, cafes, and night life.

Sun-drenched living areas open on to an ULTRA PRIVATE pool area featuring amazing UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS of Mt. San Jacinto and the mesmerizing California desert. This home has marvelous flow from the indoor to the outdoor pool area… truly an extended living area with luxurious travertine floors flowing in and out.

Custom built-in OUTDOOR SECTIONALS and over-sized lounges for sunbathing allow guests to enjoy sun or shade in complete comfort. And when you have had enough lounging dip in to a 32 foot pool with five SPA JETS incorporated directly in to the shallow end of the pool. An in-pool bench allows you to enjoy a fabulous back message from the strategically placed spa jets while you chat with friends or plan the evening's events.

Take Five's interior is just as meticulously appointed, again, with an emphasis on RELAXATION. The interior features an array of CUSTOM FURNITURE all designed for maximum comfort from the plush dining chairs to the endless 18 foot sectional sofa in the media area. Two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms, are outfitted with CALIFORNIA KING sized beds and the latest flat screen televisions. One of the bedrooms has it's own an adjacent LIVING AREA and mini bar, allowing guests to enjoy added privacy while staying at 'Take Five'.

LUXURY truly meets RELAXATION at 'Take Five'…. A unique property with a great location that will make your next stay in Palm Springs a memorable one. Book your reservation today, you'll be glad you did.

*The owners of 'Take Five' travel most of the year but occasionally use a detached guest casita located at the front of the property. The casita shares no common areas with the home and has a separate entrance insuring total privacy for guests.

If the dates you require are booked, please check out our other property 'Stardust' - Vrbo #299939, Home/Away #337141.

About Steve Jensen

The owner of this cool property is an internationally-known designer of luxury glass lighting and accessories made on the famous island of Murano, Venice, Italy. The sophisticated low-key interior of this home reflects his many years living abroad and the house features numerous pieces from his exclusive collection.

Steve Jensen purchased this house in 2001

Why Steve Jensen chose Palm Springs

This is my second home in Palm Springs. Even though I still love my first home, I bought this one when I needed more space and chose it mainly for its location - a quiet street with no through traffic, and also for the beautiful views from both inside and outside the house of magnificent Mount Saint Jacinto.

Beautiful Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I (in our 50's) and my daughter and her friend (in their mid 20's) all had a wonderful time at Take Five. The property is amazing! We spent the majority of our days relaxing and enjoying the perfect weather within the luxury of this property. The backyard is extremely private and quiet with exquisite landscaping and a beautiful view of the mountains. We made fresh lemonade from the lemon tree on the property and tried my first kumquat freshly picked in the yard! The pool was perfect with extremely comfortable lounge beds to bask in the sun. The inside was beautiful and spread out in such a way we could all hang out together comfortably or have some private time in another section of the home. The location was close enough to walk downtown (approx 15-20 minute walk) or there was always parking if we drove. Some of our activities included, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the top of the mountains & the Street Fair downtown Palm Springs on Thursday nights. We grilled out one night and enjoyed various nearby restaurants the other nights. Our favorites being: Copley's on Palm Canyon and Fisherman's Market & Grill.

This property is very well maintained, clean, and stocked with all of the necessities to make it a home. Steve was there to welcome us when we arrived, he checked in with me via text to see if all was ok, and was always prompt with a response if I had a question. We would definitely recommend Take Five for a family or group of 4 or for 2 couples. We plan to return!

Spectacular Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in both Stardust and Take Five. As the other reviewers have attested, they are both magnificent in their own individual ways. Assuming availability, we would never come to Palm Springs and stay anywhere but one of these two houses. In addition to maintaining lovely properties, it is a delight to deal with Steve and the people he has around him, whether it be for maintenance items or financial ones. Your needs will be attended to promptly, regardless of time; you will never be “nickeled and dimed”; you will never be wondering when you are getting your deposit back and you will never be in doubt as to what the terms are. The houses are beautiful, but the VRBO rental experience requires more than just the houses. Here, all the pieces fit together perfectly.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Take Five spending the month of February soaking up the charms of this stunning property. This was our first visit and we were blown away from the moment we walked through the door. The home is decorated with style and grace but is also very comfortable and inviting. The back yard is an oasis with the pool and a fountain surrounded by fruit and olive trees. It is extremely private and quiet. What you can see is the mountains in the background and we watched the sun disappear behind them each evening. Great vista. The property is only a 15-20 minute walk from the downtown area and its proximity to the wellness park and public tennis courts is an added plus. Friends of ours joined us for a few days and the second bedroom has its own bathroom and sitting area which is very private. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

Speechless

  • 5 of 5

Ok, maybe not (as I'm apparently never speechless) but suffice to say this property is so much more than depicted by the photos. My husband and I just returned from an 8 day stay at "Take Five." We shared the rental with another couple, very good friends of ours. All four of us were pretty much smitten with Steve's lovely property. We had bad weather and even that couldn't dampen our appreciation for such a beautiful home - truly artistic decor! We walked into town nearly every day and we toured local sites. This was our second visit to PS and the location of this house is awesome. Plus every single detail has been addressed. And there are lemon, orange, grapefruit, kumquat and pomegranate trees, imagine making the freshest juices (and adult beverages) ever! We WILL return.

The Best in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

Amazing but true. We are going on five years renting both this house and Stardust next door. Semi-retired and living in Seattle, we rent in Hawaii, Key West, and Palm Springs and Take Five is the best of the best. We come for a month or more every year and consider this our little secret--didn't want everyone else to know about it in case we wanted to expand our stay or change dates. Yeah--we are picky and selfish... But now we rent a full year ahead each year and can afford to let the news slip out. The owner has been such a perfect host--we owe him!! So take my word, this place is genuinely superb. Close to Ruth Hardy Park and five minutes drive to downtown. And if you haven’t been to PS lately and remember a rather seedy downtown strip, go see it now. Much improved and thriving. I play tennis at Plaza Tennis Club (another great find) and ride my bike (7 minutes) down there several times a week. The house is large and we regularly have friends drop in for a few days. The gardens, like Stardust, are completely private and populated with fruit and olive trees--soooo nice. Even if it is blowing hard (not normal in our experience) Take Five is wonderfully sheltered. The pool is long enough to actually swim lengths and we use it every day for exercise and relaxing. The owners used to live at Take Five and so the kitchen and laundry are equipped with every possible convenience. This is not your usual bare minimum equipped VRBO condo. This is a luxury home with beautiful lighting (the owner’s specialty), well maintained facilities, and a perfect mix of indoor-outdoor spaces. There is plenty of room to spread out indoors and outdoors for both relaxing and eating. Tired of the rain-snow-cold? Take five, or six, or more--give them a call.

A Perfect Property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. It is as beautiful as the pictures show, every corner of home and property are impeccably decorated and maintained. The lighting in the evening is fantastic and really adds to the atmosphere of this lovely property. Both the kitchen and bathroom are clean and lovely (it is hard to beat a shower with 4 shower heads!). But the most fantastic part of our stay was the pool with the amazing sun beds where we spent all our time...absolutely amazing and so private. Even though you are in a neighborhood very close to shops and restaurants you feel like you are on your own private island. By the way,the owner was staying in the Casita while we were there but we never felt his presence at all, other than his welcoming us. We would highly recommend this property for a private get away.
