Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Betty’s is a newly renovated house in the historic Movie Colony East neighborhood, centrally located with easy access to all that the Coachella Valley has to offer. Walking distance to downtown Palm Springs shopping and restaurants, the Casino, and the Convention Center, and an easy five-minute walk to Ruth Hardy Park for tennis, volleyball or basketball. The house is available for rental during the holidays, the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, the Palm Springs Film Festival, The Dinah Shore Weekend and the Palm Springs’ Pride Festival in October.

The interior of the house has been completely updated in 2013 and has all the contemporary comforts. The architect-designed state of the art kitchen features stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, a gas cooktop, vaulted ceilings and a layout that flows from the kitchen to the family room area with its 60-inch wall-mounted flat-screen TV. There are two baths and two bedrooms, both with king-size beds. The house includes an expanded cable package, free long distance telephone in North America and WiFi.

The open concept living room and dining room have been beautifully furnished, capturing the Palm Springs mid-century modern feel. The spacious master suite has a king size bed, a 40-inch flat screen TV, French doors that lead directly to the pool, and a large en suite bathroom. The walk-in shower has multiple showerheads to help create a spa experience. The guest bedroom has a large closet, cable TV and sliding glass doors to the patio and pool area with an adjacent, cheerful modern guest bathroom.

The outdoor living space has a comfortably furnished patio, with an outdoor living room, an outdoor dining room and barbecue and chaises by the new pebble tech pool and spa. There are spectacular mountain views (completely free of wires!) from the backyard.

Guestbook comments from the manager
If you’re looking for a tranquil escape, a place where a big sun comes up every morning, where you can watch the clouds float by beneath a majestic palm, prepare meals (and margaritas) in a gourmet kitchen, sprawl on deliciously comfortable beds, and putter through a spacious and elegant home away from home – then Betty’s is for you. This past August, I spent a memorable two weeks with family in this stylish Palm Springs bungalow. We were all taken with the attention to detail from the moment we pulled up – the sleek design and décor, the poolside view of the mountains, and the large windows that stream a warm desert light into each room. We enjoyed the pool and spa, and many fine evenings in the outdoor living and dining area, marvelling at shooting stars. It was a terrific spot to gather, with something for everyone, quiet nooks to read and nap, large screens for movie nights, and a classic old Hollywood style neighbourhood worth strolling through. Betty’s is perfectly located just a few minutes from nearly anything you may want or need, grocery store, the eclectic shops and restaurants of downtown, the movie theatre, the art museum and on it goes. Joshua Tree National Park is also less than an hour two hours away, and the premium outlets aren’t far either. In all, I highly recommend Betty’s for singles, couples, and families. It’s that enchanting sort of destination that lets you set your own pace.

Although we live in Canada, we’ve been coming to Palm Springs since the early 1980s. Clearly we love it here, and we love how vibrant the city’s become in the last decade or so. Couple that with everything else the desert has to offer – amazing hikes, Joshua Tree National Park, great restaurants and shopping – and it’s understandable why we’ve made Palm Springs our second home.

Why is the house called “Betty’s”? It was originally built in the 1940s by a cocktail waitress – and former bathing-suit model – named Betty who worked at the popular downtown nightclub, Chi Chi’s, frequented by Frank Sinatra and other stars. Neighbors report that Frank loved Betty’s martinis and occasionally stopped by the house to have her whip up a batch. He also asked her to pick him up from time-to-time at the old Palm Springs train station. As only the third owners of the property we wanted to honor the history of the house by calling it after its first owner. On the counter in the kitchen there is a picture of Betty standing outside the house in the late1940s when the place was little more than a cottage and the street was still unpaved! There are also photos of the house prior to the recent renovations.

This is an absolutely beautiful home. The pictures are lovely, but they don't do it justice. It's clear the owners put a lot of love and care into every detail at this property and every possbile need that a traveller might have, has been anticipated. Not only has every creature comfort been provided, but the location is second-to-none. One of the best (if not the best) neighbourhoods in Palm Springs. Quiet for those who want privacy, but just a three minute drive away from the main strip. I fell in love with Palm Springs and this home in my week here. A couple of minutes away from the airport, groceries, and comforts and just 20 minutes away from the best luxury and outlet shopping in Cali. I will definately return! But next time, for longer than a week.

EXCELLENT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property at the end of April for a relaxing girlfriend vacation. The property is even better in person and was exceptionally clean and well appointed. We enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen and the open floor plan made it feel airy and inviting. The pool and hot tub were the icing on the cake and there was complete privacy in the backyard for swimming, and having dinner.

The location was excellent. Although a car makes it easier to get around Palm Springs, this home is easy walking distance to the town and all amenities.

Cannot say enough about the location and this house. Peter the property manager was easily reachable during our stay and made our arrival and departure seamless. Highly recommend this rental and location and we hope to be back soon!

THE BEST-KEPT SECRET IN ALL OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!!

  • 5 of 5
I hate to write this review, because it means others will discover this delightful gem in the heart of Palm Springs' fabled movie star colony. The house is charming, spotless, comfortable, beautifully outfitted, with a pool, outdoor dining and living areas, and a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains. It is easily worth double the rate currently listed. An absolute treasure. I stayed a week and wished I'd made it two (or four!) Less than 5 minutes drive from the airport and close to everything you need.

GREAT WINTER BREAK

  • 5 of 5
This house was awesome. It felt like a home away from home. Great location, and accessable to the main sights of Palm Springs. Two and a half minutes from the airport, and located in a great area. Very private yard, great pool, and all the pool side furniture and towels to make your stay great. It was a great place to escape to from the nasty 30 and 40 below weather we were having. A definite place we would like to return to.Great communication with the manager, which makes for no surprises. The owners went to great
detail to have their guests the information needed for the stay, the information binder and
appliance folders were super. This rental was exactly as stated in their write up and was very clean and we'll maintained

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home in October and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
Peter was fantastic to deal with, and he responded immediately to any inquires we had.
The house was spotless clean, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. Pride of ownership shows in this house. It is exactly as it was presented in the ad. Everything in this house appears to be brand new.
We have rented a number of houses in Palm Springs and this one overall was the best!
