About Norman Duarte

Have discovered recently that I love the re-visualizing of a unit, and then transforming it.

Norman Duarte purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Norman Duarte chose Palm Springs

This property had everything and was where we wanted to be. We wanted privacy, and with the enclosed pool and yard by the mature ficus hedge, it offered us that. For the two of us, this one bedroom unit was the perfect size, for what had become, frequent Palm Spring get aways.

What makes this apartment unique

All the upgrades and furnishing and decoration is very special, yet casual and comfortable. It's been described by most who have seen it as, 'having a good vibe'.

Classy Casa in the Desert

  • 5 of 5
Norman's place was perfect for our 5 night stay. It was vey clean, but still cozy and inviting. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was nice to have a closet and drawers for our things. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals and have our much needed coffee in the morning. As we were staying for the Coachella Arts and Music Festival, we were grateful to have such a relaxing place to hang out at during down time. The place was walking distance to a shuttle stop for the event, which was perfect. Norman was very accommodating with our schedules in terms of arrival and departure. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. We would gladly stay again.

Delightful First Time Experience

  • 5 of 5
As a first time user of the HomeAway rental system, I certainly had my doubts. Norman put my anxiety to rest weeks before we even got there! Absolutely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The rental itself is manicured to perfection; everything you need (and many things you don't need) is available. Everything in the listing was 100% accurate; we had the pool to ourselves and complete privacy during the day, the location was close enough to walk to almost everything we needed, parking was a breeze. I would absolutely recommend, and I plan on coming back next year!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Having not rented a vacation home before, I was relieved to find the property exceeded my expectations. This rental is beautiful! Very clean and tastefully decorated. While staying here I felt accommodated for as if I were at hotel, but also like I was at home. It seems small but there was enough room for myself and two friends who stayed with me (we were in town for the Coachella festival). Norman was pleasant and thorough in making sure my stay went well. I was very sad to leave and am looking forward to coming back!

Owner's Response: Jessica,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this thoughtful review. I wanted to create a place that has the expected comfort of a hotel, but also allows my guest to feel at home. From what you wrote, it appears that we are on the right path. It was nice and tidy when I returned, and I thank you for that as well. Be well, and until the next time, take care.

Best,

Norman

Fabulous locatlon; great condo; super owner!

  • 5 of 5
The condo has been recently renovated to a very high standard, and, while small, is amazingly well-equipped and comfortable. We have rented all over the world, and this is by far the best equipped kitchen we have had. It is obvious that Norman takes pride in his building, and also is a very good cook. The mattress and bedding were incredible – I have asked for the particulars, as I would love to find the same mattress for our home. I have never slept better. Everything we needed for a perfect stay was provided, and then some. Additionally, the condo is just a few blocks from downtown Palm Springs. We were able to walk to restaurants, morning coffee (try Cielo!) and my favorite yogurt shop! We will definitely return to this rental!

Owner's Response: M,

Thank you so much for the review. I feel like a good vacation should include good food and a sound sleep, so I've tried to create a space that can provide that, thank you for mentioning. It was more than a pleasure meeting you and your husband, I do hope you will come back to stay. One of the surprises that has come out of the vacation rental business, has been meeting wonderful people like you!!!

Cheers my Friend!

downtown treasure

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 2 small dogs and I recently spent a month here in P.S. The landlord, Norman, was extremely co-operative and responded quickly to questions.We loved the apartment and were very sorry to leave! Though small, it has been newly finished and furnished with great taste. Such treat to have a beautifully equipped kitchen, 2 big flat screen tv's, luxurious bedding and towels. We flew down and really did not need a car. All of downtown, convention centre, casino,shopping,art galleries are 3 blocks away! And walking away from town is a lovely quiet residential area where I loved to stroll with my dogs. Yard/pool is completely enclosed, neighbours are away working almost always so very private. Traffic from Ramon is very quiet at night and a non-issue in the apartment. Highly recommend it for 2 people (with maybe an occasional guest?). Loved it.
