About John Goins & Robert Broecker

Twelve years ago, some friends let us stay in their Palm Springs house for a long weekend. We fell in love with the city and the area! Now we have our own place and we want to share the Palm Springs experience with others. Our spirit soars every time we come to town! We hope yours will too.

John Goins & Robert Broecker purchased this house in 2012

Why John Goins & Robert Broecker chose Palm Springs

The view rocks! So does the location. We enjoy sunning by the pool, taking in the view of the mountains. We can ride bikes to the grocery store or Koffi or take a long walk through the neighborhood to the Art District. Look for the Big Dipper right above you when lounging by the pool at night.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the Chrysalis-style. We wanted the house to have that Palm Springs vibe and we still get excited whenever we arrive. It's the perfect get-away: comfortable, stylish and care-free.

There is a secret compartment at Chrysalis. See if you can find it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great home this is! We spent an extended weekend here to celebrate our friends' 25th wedding anniversary, and what a treat this home was! The mid-century modern design is impeccable - offering all of the amenities of home...and then some! The comfort in the beds rival some of the top hotels and no detail was spared - including plenty of towels and lush robes to keep us warm when we got out of the beautiful pool. This home is a must visit - I certainly look forward to visiting again! Cheers guys on a great PS home!

Great house in a wonderful neighborhood. Centrally located near downtown Palm Springs and other attractions. Home is well-apportioned with state of art electronics and comfortable bedrooms for up to 6 people and nicely decorated. Common areas are small. The pool was wonderful, but much smaller than pictured. If you plan to cook, bring your own knife. The knives were very dull.

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chrysalis, from the hot tub with Margaritas in the evenings to swimming and sunning at the pool during the days. It is a lovely home, well maintained and exactly as pictured and described. We've been to Palm Springs area many times but this is the first time we've rented a house instead of staying in a hotel, and we will definitely rent this place again next time!

Three Cheers for Chrysalis!

  • 5 of 5

The warm welcome my Elite Cheer daughters and I enjoyed upon arrival set the tone for a lovely weekend. It was perfectly located for our needs and the home fit us all well. We loved the ultra-modern design and were comfortable and relaxed when there. It was a great place for the athletes to unwind and I could easily cook them nice meals in the state-of-the art kitchen. The cool pool was a hit! Thank you for making "Duel in the Desert" a great cheer event due to our perfect accommodations.

Birthday and vacation get away!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed at Chrysalis recently. It was as much, if not more than we were expecting! We spent most of our time lounging around their beautiful home and pool. My husband enjoyed using the hot tub several times a day. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the mountains around the pool while having breakfast and coffee made in their fully equipped kitchen. We enjoyed Robert and John's suggestions of where to eat and places to go. We are definitely returning. Thank you Robert and John!

Fun family time in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

My brother and sisters and I enjoyed our stay in beautiful Chrysalis, celebrating my Mom's birthday. The space was so attractive on the website, and impressed us in person as well. We arrived later in the evening, after a long drive. When we walked into the the courtyard, we loved lighting and the sound of waterfall in the pool. Stepping into the living room, open space plan was comforting and we just chilled out and listened to music with the impressive easy to follow directions for media. All the attention to details were appreciated, from the cute bikes, to the soothing landscape design, to the champagne left in the refrigerator upon our arrival. When we retired to our rooms, and slept soundly in comfortable beds with nice linens and cleanly designed rooms.

The next day we enjoyed visiting around the pool with a beautiful view of the mountains behind us.

We explored downtown Palm Springs when was conveniently close for shopping and restaurants. We stayed home and cooked one afternoon, and had everything we needed in a well stocked kitchen.

John and Robert were very responsive via email before our trip, and helped us with logistics. We were met by the owner at the end of out visit. He was gracious and apologized that one bike had a flat (we didn't need it anyway). They are very friendly, and take great care of their property.

We would wholeheartedly sign up for another trip! It is well worth it, and much more comfortable than a hotel for a group.

Thank you, John and Robert!

Chrysalis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Chrysalis during the first week in December. We had a fabulous time in this well-decorated, comfortable, and convenient home.

The house was immaculate with all the amenities needed for a relaxing get-away. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool, the expansive floor plan, the tasteful and modern decor, and the convenient location of the house in relation to many important sights in the area. We loved it so much we stayed in most nights and cooked, relaxed, and enjoyed the space. The beds are also very comfortable.

I would recommend this vacation to anyone. Palm Springs is an interesting place and Chrysalis is the perfect place to see it all from. We would certainly do it again, we loved it all.

From Wikipedia: 'The Movie Colony is just east of Palm Canyon Drive. The Movie Colony East neighborhood extends east from the Ruth Hardy Park. These areas started growing in the 1930s as Hollywood movie stars built their smaller getaways from their Los Angeles area estates. Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Estee Lauder, and Bing Crosby built homes in these neighborhoods.'
