Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Splendid Mountain Views With Pool, Spa, and Wireless Internet/DVR/blu ray

WELCOME TO CASA DE PALMA: CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN, IT OFFERS AN ESTATE FEEL WITH TIMELESS ARCHITECTURE, INSPIRING LANDSCAPING, HOT TUB/SPA, HEATED SALT WATER POOL & SPA, LIGHTNING FAST WIRELESS INTERNET AND DVR/BLU RAY.

Offering the feel of a small gated estate, this walled and hedged property offers privacy, luxury, splendid views, and many intimate indoor and outdoor niches for cocktails, dining, reading, quiet meditation, taking in the view, or poolside lounging. The front gardens have a dramatic view of the mountains surrounding Tahquitz Canyon. Both front and back are professionally landscaped with lawns, palms, citrus trees, and bougainvillea. Built in 1938 and thoughtfully remodeled in 2012, this Spanish lodge style home displays a unique Palm Springs 1930's period charm and style.

Located in the close-in to town, but quiet neighborhood of Tahquitz River Estates, Casa de Palma is situated on a large lot and is surrounded and screened by thick ficus hedging... creating a secluded and serene private retreat. The interior promises comfort and style. There are two fireplaces; the family room is large and the home is well decorated with thoughtful and beautiful furnishings. There is also a 46 inch flat screen TV with premium cable, DVR, and blu ray. This room has a second dining area adjacent the Mexican tile fireplace. French doors open to the pool for a seamless inside/outside lifestyle.

The backyard has stunning mountain views with shaded seating and dining areas adjacent to the wall fountain. A professional misting system surrounds the pool and dining areas for your comfort. In the evening, the landscape and pool lighting creates a dramatic resort feel.

Casa de Palma is located only 0.7 miles from the downtown limits (Central Palm Springs) and is 1.5 miles to Cheeky’s, Jakes, or Koffi on N. Palm Canyon. You may choose to drive there, but you can walk there in 20-25 minutes. We also provide 4 basic bikes for a quick ride to the heart of it all. Or walk to the nearby Koffi on S. Camino Real in 10 minutes. Also, Ralphs, Jensens, and The Saguaro are nearby.

The mountains of Tahquitz Canyon form a dramatic nearby backdrop with spectacular views. Walk from the house to hike the Tahquitz Canyon Waterfalls with thier natural palm shaded pools.

Three bedrooms make this home an ideal family or couples retreat. The master has a king bed with beamed ceilings and a flat screen TV. The main guest room is off the pool with a queen bed. Two twin beds complete the third bedroom with views to the front garden. There are two full baths. There are flat screen TV’s in every bedroom. There is also a large, detached bonus suite. While not exactly a casita, it’s completely separate and has a ping pong table, an overflow twin bed, additional recreation area and laundry.

Casa de Palma is a special property. It's quintessential Palm Springs style and resort feel make it a natural choice!

About Tom Ellicott

My partner and I live in Atlanta but have always loved the Palm Springs lifestyle. In season or out of season, the Mountains and the Desert call us. It was a dream to find this home.

Tom Ellicott purchased this house in 2014

Why Tom Ellicott chose Palm Springs

We just had to have 'Spanish'. It's what speaks to us. We love mid-century and we love modern, but 'Spanish Colonial' architecture and elegant gardens say 'home' to us in Palm Springs. Plus, the property is like a mini-estate: Gated, screened by walls and hedges... totally private. We loved it from 'go'.

What makes this house unique

The privacy, the location, the architecture, and the hot tub are without a doubt the best reasons to stay at Casa de Palma.

Perfect getaway with the girls

  • 5 of 5
My tennis buddies and I wanted to go to Palm Springs for a little vacation so we looked on VRBO and found your place. We were there about five days and had a wonderful experience and want to thank you for providing it. The amenities are just great. The home feels like a little castle.  We spent a lot of time in the pool and had cocktails in the hot tub.  What a treat. We will definitely come back here...as often as possible.

Great location and beautiful, well-appointed home

  • 5 of 5
Everything was great from the time we entered the front door to leaving at the end of our week. Everything we could need was there to enjoy our first evening with only a short shopping trip. Always enjoy the shopping and dining we do in PS and this location was close to everything and in a quiet neighborhood. Just perfect for a getaway. Thank you.

Wonderful vacation home!!! Definitely want to go back!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this house to host my annual fantasy football draft over a 3-day weekend in late August. There were 8 of us and there was more than enough space for everyone.

We checked in on Fri evening and were impressed with the attention to detail. We instantly fell in love with all the house had to offer. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything (minus food) we could possibly need. Each bedroom felt inviting and the beds were comfortable. The living room had plenty of seating for everyone to sit around and watch some preseason football, as well as play some games. Both bathrooms were very clean and well designed. The attached casita, served as a fourth bedroom, and also had a ping pong table, washer/dryer and some extra pool floats.

But the real selling point is the backyard. The pool was well-designed and felt amazing. The temperature was perfect!!! At night a flip of a switch turned on the pool lights which illuminated the pool with a variety of changing colors that gave a very cool after-hours party vibe. Aside for using the pool to cool off, there was also a misting system that wrapped around the backyard. It had a nice mist that kept us cool throughout the hot days. The backyard also had cushioned lounge chairs which were very comfortable, as well as a table and chair set under an awning with a built-in ceiling fan. We held our draft there at noon on Sunday (while it was HOT), but we had the fan and the misters on and were completely comfortable. There was also a propane BBQ and another table along the side of the house. Another thing we enjoyed was the grass area in the backyard which allowed us to play Baggo and Bocce Ball, which we had brought with us.

The location was within walking or biking distance to downtown, and the closest grocery store was only a mile away.

On Monday, the owners gave us permission to checkout late (since no one was checking in that evening), which gave us time to enjoy our final day before packing up.

The only negative was that on Saturday morning, a landscape crew showed up to work on the property. This prevented us from using the backyard until around noon. It would have made more sense to have them come mid-week, but they were very friendly and did their best to get the backyard done as soon as possible so we could use the pool. We were early risers, but this might anger late sleepers.

I could go on, but I have limited space to write. Overall, A+ property and I can't wait to come back.

My NEW Favorite Vacation Destination in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing home!!! My family certainly did enjoy your beautiful home in Palm Springs!! We can't say enough about the comfort and warm surroundings of every room. You have really thought of everything! We just didn't want to leave! We travel to Palm Springs 4-5 times a year and we all agreed this was our new favorite home!!! Also, the hot tub, outdoor entertaining areas (even in this summer heat!), fabulous mountain views, clean and fully equipped bathrooms, thick plush towels, a chef's dream kitchen and exceptional kindness of the owner... rivals a five star hotel!!!
Thank you for your gracious hospitality and we will see you in a few weeks for our next trip!
Again, thank you so much,
Cathy

Owner's Response: Cathy, thank you so much for staying at our Casa de Palma property. We only recently purchased it, but we have managed to finish the decorating and make some upgrades like the salt water pool and new air conditioning units. We're so glad you enjoyed it!
