Why David Murphy chose Palm Springs

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.

What makes this bungalow unique

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.

Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Bungalow in Palm Springs! Amazing yard with gorgeous pool, nice view of the mountains, quiet neighborhood, and comfortable, cozy home. We appreciated the private outdoor living area in the shade during the warm days. We will definitely return to this beautiful home!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i loved our week in this lovely home. It's in a quiet neighborhood but is close to everything. Downtown Palm Springs (shopping, design district, PS museum of art) is minutes away by car, or is even walkable. The Ace Hotel is 2 blocks away. Restaurants and cafes are nearby. Hiking trails too. The house is carefully decorated in a traditional southwest feel. The yard is beautifully landscaped and has views of nearby mountains. The owner has thoughtfully provided everything you'd need, including a printer. It truly felt like home to us. We will be back.

A Gem Found in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property over New Years and just loved it! Immaculate, fully stock with all amenities, tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. We loved the privacy and the walking distance to downtown Palm Springs.

This is a gem of an oasis for a long weekend or an extended stay. The owner thought of everything for our comfort and convenience.

We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Palm Springs--only wish it was next weekend.

Private, tasteful oasis

  • 5 of 5

Spent a short weekend here and found what I was looking for - totally relaxation. The house is well designed and tastefully decorated. The secluded pool was divine thanks to the floating chairs provided and the majestic view of the mountains.

Probably most impressive was the lush landscaping.

This will become my go to Palm Springs escape.

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.
