Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Hillside Home With Three Master Suites, 3.5 Baths

Contemporary hillside solar home on over 1/2 acre with mega views! Steel elements, green design, sliding doors, multiple decks and patios, and iPad controlled automation system. Kitchen, living and dining areas include skylights, fireplace and large deck. Master suites one + two offer views, patios and spa-like baths. Detached casita offers views, fireplace and bath. Custom pool with custom water display, spa, misting system and 360 degree views.

This ultra energy efficient desert home with spectacular views across the entire Coachella Valley is a showcase of modern design and technology. It was constructed in 2003 as the “Energywise House”, under the supervision of noted “This Old House” program host, Bob Vila.

The main house has a spectacular great room that opens to the full-length balcony through Fleetwood sliders that disappear into the walls. It also features a dramatic gas fireplace. The kitchen boasts a Subzero refrigerator and separate wine cooler, maple cabinetry, Caesar stone counters, Decor commercial grade gas stove and oven, built-in Decor microwave, Kitchen Aid trash compactor, garbage disposal, and a top-of-the line Miele dishwasher.

The two main house master suites each have their own terraced patios and large bathrooms featuring oversized showers (one of which opens to a desert garden). The large private guest house includes a coffee bar with refrigerator, and a fireplace.

Additional highlights:

Three zones of electronic climate control

Sunpower solar electric system.

CrystalClear whole house water purification system.

Rainbird automated sprinkler system.

Security system.

Two commercial-grade Koolfrog misting systems for main house, pool area, and guest house.

BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL HOME SITUATED WITH THE PERFECT MOUNTAIN VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home has stunning view of mountain, quiet location, yet situated close to shopping, dinning, and Tahquitz Canyon, our favorite for running!
Marcio was extremely helpful and professional throughout entire process. He expedited our check in process, with us ending up arriving late due to traffic from Malibu. Yet, he remained patient and accommodating. We were welcomed with a bottle of champagne!
No detail is overlooked in this home. The decor, the wonderfully comfortable beds, to fully stocked kitchen, down to the smallest of detail such as coffee for Nespresso machine! There is even has a smart phone app to control lighting, inside and outside the house!
You will delight in the outdoor misters as you bask by the pool, or on the outside deck.
It has a casita, sepearate from main house, situated just off the pool, it includes it's own bathroom, wet bar area, and fireplace. Just lovely!
Unlike the other review we found the home to be impeccably clean, inside and out. Even down to the patio and deck furniture.
We have stayed in Palm Springs for past six years, renting homes through VRBO, we have yet to enjoy a home as much as this one. From the first call to the last correspondence, it was seamless, as you would want a vacation to be.
If you rent this lovely home please take care of it, as we plan to return again and again!
Thank you for an exceptionally wonderful vacation!

NICE FUN HOME!

  • 4 of 5
This is a very nice, well furnished home! Spectacular view, in a great neighborhood and very close to downtown Palm Springs. It has a very well stocked kitchen. It is obvious the home has not been rented often. Marcio was very responsive and a very good host!

The reason it did not get 5 stars -

- The house seemed/felt clean but then there were some areas not dusted. Not a big deal, it just goes back to they don't rent it often.

- Lots of stairs. This didn't bother us, just be aware, if you don't like stairs, you won't like this property!

Overall a very good property that we would use again.
