About Susan St. Louis

I grew up in a small town in Connecticut, and married my college sweetheart, who is a doctor. We raised three girls, homeschooled them, coached youth soccer, and now spend our time studying languages, cooking meals for friends, trying to stay fit, and volunteering for medical missionary trips whenever possible. We have used VRBO properties many times, ourselves, and we find it a much better way to travel than to stay in hotels. We hope you will enjoy staying in our beautiful new Palm Springs casa.

Susan St. Louis purchased this house in 2013

Why Susan St. Louis chose Palm Springs

Casa de Colores (House of Colors) has been lovingly decorated with all new furniture, beautiful art and accessories in the colors of the desert to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable and unforgettable. Each bedroom has its own outside door, with high quality wooden shutters that completely darken the rooms when fully closed. All linens and towels are new, and will be regularly replaced as needed, to ensure comfort and satisfaction. The living room opens onto the front courtyard, with its mountain views, and allows you to 'bring the outdoors in with you.' The game table in the living room nook will lure you to find out who has the best poker face. Full sets of dishes, pots and pans, cooking utensils and basic supplies will provide you with all the things you'll need to cook as much or as little as you desire. The pool and spa will draw you to spend time in the back yard, but you will also have three separate lounging and eating areas there in which to spend your time. Whether you are one couple, a large family or 2 or 3 couples vacationing together, you will never lack for comfortable, private places to sit and talk. We want this house to be the best place you've ever vacationed in, and we will continue to try to make it worthy of that label.

What makes this house unique

When we saw this house we fell in love with the quality of the construction, and the wonderful architectural elements like the round windows in the front entryway and master bath, the foyer tower, the arched entryway and front door, the colored tile floors throughout, and the exquisite wooden beams and cathedral ceiling in the living room. We also really liked that each bedroom has its own bath and exterior door. And many of the attractions of downtown Palm Springs are within a short walk!

Guestbook comments from the owner

(There is no star rating on this review because it was left in a written note in the guest book, and was typed in here by the owner.)

Susan,

We had a wonderful 9-day stay in your house that now - unfortunately - has come to an end. We really enjoyed your lovely house which our son Sebastian found planning our travels to California. Coming from a trip from San Francisco and north in Merced (Yosemite NP), Fresno (Sequoia NP) and Las Vegas, we had a very restful stay in your house! My personal highlight was the pool, giving me the chance to swim whenever and however long I wanted to. (All of us enjoyed it!)

My husband liked the hummingbirds coming to the orange flowers near our sleeping-room-door. My oldest son (25) enjoyed the space everyone had for their own - and "Free Willy" in the pool. My younger son (23) liked the great supply with everything we needed for cooking, swimming, etc. His friend (also 23) enjoyed the sofas inside and outside the house for listening to audiobooks and music.

We all had a wonderful, restful time in your house - which really is a house!

Thanks for your hospitality and we wish you all the best! Thanks also to Julie who prepared everything so well.

Wonderful Palm Springs vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the month and really enjoyed it. We had others stay with us and with the set up of the house it was wonderful. Everyone had their privacy. The location was walking distance to downtown so it was easy to enjoy the restaurants and the market. The house was so well supplied with the everyday essentials. This is a fabulous house for couples or families who want to enjoy a fabulous stay in beautiful Palm Springs.

Wonderfull house in quiet neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

The house was really wonderfull. Everything we needed was there, even the things we didn't expected. It's perfect for relaxing in this quiet neighbourhood. Although the shops and restaurants are just a few blocks away. Thank you Susan for the quick responses and for making this week a perfect holiday in your house.

Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 5 stay at the Casa de Colores in Palm Springs. We had a mother of 91, 3 people in their 60's and 1 in their 50's. We all loved this home! The mother found everything very easy for her to move around in, from kitchen to sitting areas inside and out and the bedrooms and bath. The rest of us loved the conveniences of location, pool and spa, plus all of the extras such as bikes, cards,T.V and appliances. The home was large enough that we all had privacy when wanted. Very clean and lovely decorated. We had a great stay, thank you.

Beautiful Family Home - DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly what it was like in the photos. We took our 18 months twins along with my parents and the house was just incredible. There was no issues and the pool and hot tub were for sure the best part of the house for the whole family. It was very close to grocery stores / restaurants and parks for the kids. Thank you Susan, your house was just incredible and we would definitely stay there again.

Most people come to Palm Springs for the unique combination of outdoors living, recreational activities, and cultural richness to be found here. From the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, which draws top music and comedy performers due to our proximity to Los Angeles, to the lively arts community, to the hundreds of golf courses, tennis courts, and country clubs to be found in the Coachella Valley, we are certain that Palm Springs has something for everyone. And the many events that occur each year in our valley draw interest from around the nation and even the world - the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, the BNP Paribas Tennis tournament, the Humana Challenge and Kraft Nabisco golf tournaments, the White Party, the Palm Springs Film Festival, the Tour de Palm Springs bicycle event, and many more. But in addition to all of that, if you want to vacation in a place where you can simply rest, sunbathe, lounge by the pool and rejuvenate yourself, our house will provide the indoor/outdoor Palm Springs living style that you are craving.

The areas of southern California within and surrounding the Coachella Valley abound in great outdoors adventures. The base station for the famous Palm Springs Aerial Tram is about a 15 minute drive from our house. The largest rotating tramcars in the world take you from the valley to the San Jacinto Mountain Station, at 8,516 feet of altitude. Also nearby (about one hour by car) is Joshua Tree National Park, perhaps the premier rock climbing mecca of America. Joshua Tree, named for the amazing and weird versions of the yucca plant that grow only in that area, is also full of wonderful hikes and stunning driving tours. Big Bear Lake, with all the summer boating, fishing and swimming activities, and both alpine and downhill skiing in the winter, is only 2 hours away by car. The attractions of Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego are all within a few hours away by car.
