We love the desert and in particular the fun quirkiness of Palm Springs. The house is charming. And while we admire and celebrate the mid-century modern heritage of Palm Springs, this house appealed to us because of its comfortably vintage feel. We wanted something different and, well, old school - as a retreat from the hectic, fast-paced modern world. This is it.

This is a quiet and private retreat - yet so close to all the fun Palm Springs has to offer. Great location, just off Palm Canyon Drive - the main road passing through the desert communities. - and a quick 5 minute drive to downtown shopping or the airport.

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Casita Olancha once with good friends and again with my family. Both times we had a wonderful visit. The house is lovely with a beautiful yard just as in the photo. A secluded oasis, quiet and relaxing with a lovely view of the mountains yet at the same time my family found it fun and entertaining. The house slept six comfortably and it is full of little nooks and sitting areas creating a pleasant retreat. The home appears to be completely refurbished recently with an enchanting decorator’s touch. Nothing is amiss and all of the extras – kitchen items, bed linens, etc. are of the best quality. All are new and well chosen. Nothing is neglected; we had everything we could possibly need. The door to the pool has three closures (door, screen and a blackout screen) so it is safer than one would have thought for children. We hope to return often.

Wonderful home near downtown, well landscaped yard really gave a sense seclusion and privacy when enjoying the pool.

Home was well adorned with comfortable furnishings. Very charming. Patio doors opened to the pool providing the perfect outdoor living environment.

We couldn't have asked for a better location, charm,everything we needed was here. We loved the privacy of the yard and pool area which was important to us to come and relax. Great location to access all areas of the desert. There were a couple of minor issues that David acted on immediately. We have already booked for next year.

Wonderful Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed at this sweet bungalow with my sisters and we had a wonderful time. It was perfect for a getaway for 4 people. We were really comfortable and had everything that we needed. The space is beautifully decorated, with a lot of original detail, and a great use of space. The outside is wonderful and spacious as well with a great view of the mountains. The whole property is enclosed with a wall, so it feels very private. It is walking distance to Koffi South and Marisols...2 of our favorites. It is also close to grocery stores and easy access to downtown. We love our stay!
