This private, gated Movie Colony home sits on 18,000 square feet of manicured grounds and is walking distance to downtown Palm Springs including Film Festival venues.
From mid-January through April call for casita availability (maximum 2 guests) for stays of 2-3 nights. No long term winter rentals are available for this property.
The home is perfect for 3 couples to relax and enjoy all the amenities. The bedrooms are well separated. All three bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, king size beds, and large screen TVs with satellite service.
The backyard is completely private with comfortable outdoor furniture, including a swing bed. The pool and hot tub are newly refurbished with all the latest technology and lighting. In the evenings, the firepits on both sides of the hot tub add to the luxurious ambiance and well lit landscaping. Open the walls of glass for the complete indoor/outdoor Palm Springs experience.
The chef's kitchen is large enough for multiple cooks and stocked with everything you need to create your own culinary delights, including a gas grill on the patio. If you decide not to cook, we can help you arrange a private chef to prepare meals for you. We enjoy making pancakes or waffles on the weekends so you will find a large pancake griddle and waffle iron in this well-stocked kitchen. We even have 2 coffee makers for those requiring both regular and decaf coffee. Of course, we also have an electric kettle for our Canadian friends.
The house has wireless internet access and a printer with a copier and scanner.
With the easy access to the pool, this house is not suitable for families with young children.
My husband and I grew up in Southern California and both spent vacations in the desert as children. We have wonderful memories of those times. Throughout our married life we have continued to spend holidays and vacations in the desert and really love the area. We have lived in Seattle for the last 14 years and now that we are empty nesters we spend the winter in Palm Springs.
Jayne Spector purchased this house in 2013
For years we stayed with friends and at hotels in various desert cities. About 7 years ago we decided Palm Springs was our preferred city. We love walking to downtown and the village feel and friendliness that grows from having a city center. We looked for a home of our own for 4 years before finding this wonderful property. Movie Colony has always been a favorite neighborhood of ours and when we saw the property we knew right away we had found something unique. The private setting and setback from the street make it the relaxing retreat we were looking for.
As empty nesters, we wanted a home that has room to entertain and invite friends for weekends. The separation of bedrooms is perfect and enables everyone to have privacy when desired. We love the grounds and all of the special little areas you will discover as you walk the property. It feels like a different world with each corner you turn.
We are certain you will enjoy this amazing retreat as much as we do.

Just perfect! I spent four nights with my sisters and recently widowed father, and another four nights with some girlfriends celebrating a 50th birthday. Everything about this house is perfect. The home and property are spacious yet cozy and private. The location is wonderful (a few miles from the airport -- with no airport noise, and a mile or two from the shopping district). The owners are attentive. And the place is spotless! I hope to go back this spring.
This house was amazing! We had three couples, who enjoyed the long Memorial Day weekend in Palm Springs. The house was so amazing; we found it hard to leave. The pool area is perfect for relaxing, catching some rays, and cooling off from the hot desert sun! The house is very well equipped with everything from tools for grilling, blenders for frozen cocktails, and even hair dryers in the bathrooms. The open floor plan was great for entertaining, and the three bedroom suites offered plenty of privacy, and escape from the group. Additionally, the location can’t be beat. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, but it was only a few blocks walk to the heart of Palm Springs night life. Some of Palm Springs best restaurants (Cheekys, Jake’s) are within walking distance.
The home owners were very easy to deal with, and made sure everything with our stay was superb! When traveling back to Palm Springs, we will definitely stay here again, and have already recommended the property to friends!
What a great house!! Three couples stayed very comfortably for a weekend get away. The homes layout makes a weekend with friends conducive to everyone being together, but also provides space for more privacy. The home is also well organized and has everything necessary to make the time away enjoyable.
The pictures are beautiful but the reality of this gorgeous house is even better. We stayed for a quick weekend getaway with the girls. From the second I walked in, it was stunning! You walk right in to a gorgeous open view of the pool. The entire back of the house is open to the spectacular backyard and is perfect for entertaining and hanging out at the pool. Each of the rooms is beautifully decorated and the house was very well stocked! Even the kitchen had everything we needed. We made all of the meals at the house and never felt the need to leave. We ended the night with a dip in the spa and slept great in the comfortable beds. I'm definitely booking another trip!
The perfect 5 star escape. The house was open, inviting, and most of all appointed with all the must haves for a 5 star escape. The view, the privacy and the house was ideal.
We enjoyed the spacious floor plan, but the view of the mountains as we lounged by the pool was the highlight. The backyard lounges were ideal for our group to relax, read, and dip in the pool. The five star kitchen was ideal for cooking, however if you prefer to dine out restaurants are walking distance. What a delight, the house was so perfect, our family decided to make it an annual trip. We can't wait to for next year.
We spent 9 nights over Christmas at this property with our three adult daughters. We had an excellent experience. The owners worked hard to make the property comfortable and well stocked with everything one might need. They called while we were there to ensure all was correct--they've hired an excellent property manager to provide local assistance. The property is in an excellent location--close to Ruth Hardy park, downtown PS, groceries, etc.
We had a wonderful vacation and would highly recommend this property and the owners.
