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'.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for about 2 weeks during our stay in Palm Springs. Excellent location close to downtown within walking distance, which was really a nice bonus. The yard was private and the place was very nicely furnished. Neighbours were very friendly, but we felt like we had the yard to ourselves as they worked long hours. Norman was a pleasure to deal with. He was very helpful and got back to us right away with answers to any questions we had as well. We had a great stay here!

Good place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this very nice appartement last summer and we really enjoyed it!! Norman is very friendly and helpfull and responds very fast if there are any questions. The house is private and quiet, there are (also very friendly and helpfull) neighbours but we hardly ever saw them because the work long days.
We hope to come back to this house soon!!
If you want to go to Palm Springs with 2 persons, we'd recommend this place for sure.

Our 3 day getAway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days.. We stayed here 3 nights.. It was incredibly comfortable .. I didn't want to leave . . I can't decide if I enjoyed floating around the pool on the lounges provided or that amazing bed.. ! We felt like we were alone. . Very private..! This place had everything.. And located a block away from all the downtown attractions.. Norman is very accommodating .. We even got to use the washing machine at no extra charge.. We will be back

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
