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!!

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for slightly more than a month (Halloween through Thanksgiving) and could not have been more satisfied. Superbly furnished (well, I did bring my own drip coffee maker - not too fond of David's French Press on a daily basis) and perfect for relaxing solitude or sophisticated entertaining. So close to much of Palm Springs and I'd give it a "walking score" of 8. Two blocks from a major city park. Great gym about a mile away (walkable or an easy bike/drive) with a very good Albertson's grocery store in the same shopping center. Absolutely perfect. Highly recommended and I will definitely repeat - whether for a month or a week.

Owner's Response: Thanks Gary! I'm so glad you "get" my place, and even though we had a couple of maintenance glitches, I did my best to amend them as quickly as possible, and you were a sport about it. Come back anytime.

Luxurious home

  • 5 of 5
This home was by far the nicest home we have rented in Palm Springs. The accommodations were much like a luxury hotel. We loved the private, closed in backyard. Never saw or heard one neighbor. The location to downtown Palm Springs was terrific. Took us 10 minutes to walk or a few minutes to drive. First time to do the tram. Absolutely loved it! This was a girls trip to celebrate my big 5-0! Hope it is available in 5 years when the 4 of us return. Thank you!

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.

Stylish and comfortable

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.

Owner's Response: Linda was all and more than any host could have wished for. I'm so glad she will be returning next winter for more fun in the sun!
