About David Madison

I moved to the Southern California desert directly from Manhattan, New York City, where I resided for 28 years.

I've owned a floral and event production company for 37 years, bringing it to Palm Springs in late 1999. My instant love of the desert compelled me to create my own oasis in the heart of the historic Movie Colony. I've spent the last 13 years acquiring and cultivating exotic flora to complete the illusion, and brought to this property all the antique treasures I've found in my travels. The overall effect is that of a comfortable, elegant home, that certainly doesn't look like a hotel.

David Madison purchased this cottage in 2000

Why David Madison chose Palm Springs

Location, location, location everyone says. This place has charm, privacy, comfort and drop dead mountain views, just minutes from the heart of Palm Springs life. Stay home by the pool, or walk your dog one block away at dog-friendly Ruth Hardy Park which includes public tennis courts and loads of grass and paved walkways. Just a couple of blocks away is the famous Movie Colony where you can walk or drive among some of the most beautiful streets and estates in town.

What makes this cottage unique

Palm Springs is all about outdoor living and the large garden with pool, spa, grill, chaises dining table, and landscape lighting will let you enjoy the sun or stars with equal ease. Backyard is VERY private!!

Absolutely the Perfect, Relaxing Break from it all...

  • 5 of 5
We rent houses in Palm Springs more than once a year and this house is by far one of our favorites. David is a pleasure to rent from and thinks of everything to make your stay as easy and peaceful as possible. His home flows from one relaxing point to the next - seamlessly lulling you into vacation the way its meant to be. We loved cooking in his well-appointed kitchen and lounging by the pool. Our room was spacious and perfect for deep sleep at night and lazy afternoon naps. The pool is gorgeous and inviting - day and night. Loved the master shower that walks you right out to the pool! Book this property immediately - the experience is five star in every way. Words and pictures don't do it justice! We will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: It gives me a lot of joy when my home is so well recieved. I've labored to make my home a place of retreat, away from everything but close enough to afford all the pleasures Palm Springs has to offer. I think of my place as a five star spa experience, and love it when guests "get it".

Great House, Great Pool, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at David's home. I was there for a combination pleasure/business trip and decided to skip the hotel stay and rent a home. This house exceeded all of my expectations. It was beautifully furnished, clean and very well laid out. There are two large bedrooms each with its own bath on opposite ends of the home. A large great room with sitting area, tv lounge and dining area is in the center of the home and a very well equipped, updated kitchen is at the rear of the home. The very private back yard contains a beautiful kidney shaped pool surrounded by lush landscaping with chaise lounges and a dining table for 6. Off to the side and down a short path is a very private, gazebo enclosed hot tub. The house was perfect for entertaining friends and clients or just lounging around the pool. The location is hard to beat as well. I walked or jogged into town every morning taking a different route to enjoy the amazing architecture in the Movie Colony and Old Las Palmas neighborhoods. In the evenings I really appreciated the opportunity to walk the calories off after enjoying food and drinks at the wide variety of restaurants and bars Palm Springs has to offer. There is a very nice Albertsons grocery store close by for all your food needs. The same plaza contains a World Gym with daily and weekly passes for those who dont want to miss their workouts. As I had to make day trips to LA and Huntington Beach to see clients, I really appreciated the proximity to the freeway as well. As the title says, great house with a great pool in a great neighborhood. Thanks again David.

Owner's Response: Thanks Eric, for that wonderful and comprehensive review of my place and environ. The location really is well suited for fitness buffs, or just those who like to chill in a safe, private haven...close enough to all amenities and sites, but far enough away to enjoy a restful, spa-like getaway.

We enjoyed our weeklong stay, and our dogs had a great time too The kitchen and master suite are exceptionally nice. The yard and pool are private, secluded and nicely landscaped. A real Palm Springs indoor-outdoor living experience with beautiful appointments.

Everything you would wish!

  • 5 of 5
I reserved for 5 weeks and brought my dog, Molly. We were joined by three different friends at various times during our visit. The house and gardens are set up in such a way that the space can be shared and still afford the opportunity for privacy. As others have said, the house and walled garden are stunning. Having the beautiful blue, sparkly tiled pool and spa and mountain view is a bonus and the proximity to Ruth Hardy Park and the downtown makes walking easy and interesting. This was my first visit to Palm Springs but by our third day, I knew I would be back next year. I am only sorry that David does not have more time available in 2015. He is a kind and gracious host and I am delighted to have found his beautiful house.

Perfect Vacation Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a few days for a short getaway, and what a beautiful property! Absolutely immaculate, great location, quiet (aside from a bit of road noise), private, beautiful, couldn't have asked for more. David is a wonderful host (and we wish we could bring him to Canada with us to decorate our home!), helpful, informative, and very personable. We plan to come back again!

A perfect Palms Springs Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The house in Palm Springs was everything we could have hoped for in a weekend getaway. Really close to the airport, so convenient for anytime flyers. Beautiful grounds, the backyard is obviously very well cared for with gorgeous succulent arrangements, mountain range views and one incredible pool. It was fun having the hidden hot tub spa around the corner as well with wind chimes to let your friends know you’re coming. The overall effect was magic. The house itself was totally luxurious. It’s obvious _ has spent a lot of time on their art collection and it pays off. There are beautifully paired antique and foreign pieces adorning the living space, collections of art in each bedroom and a sense of artistic intension throughout the home. The kitchen was so fun to cook in. Marble countertops and high end appliances abound. Although we did venture out somewhat, this is the perfect place for that shut-in vacation you’ve been looking for. A high end resort feel with the comfort of private luxury. We would totally go back in a heartbeat. House acoustics and the DVD collection rounded out our experience.
