Overview

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.

Five Happy Canadians

  • 5 of 5
We recently had the great pleasure of renting this wonderful Palm Springs home. It's an amazing house built in the thirties, in a prime part of old Palm Springs. The renovations to the house are extensive, and it is truly spacious, beautiful and private. The backyard, with its saltwater pool and spa, palm trees, lovely patio furniture and decorations, is a tranquil oasis. The owners have thought of everything, and have equipped and organized the house with great care. High quality bedding, towels, kitchen utensils, appliances, and entertainment choices are just some of the touches. This house is highly recommended, and we will be returning in the future. If the owner's goal is to develop repeat guests, they've more than succeeded.
Cliff, Karen, and three other happy Canadians.

Wonderful Vacation w/Friends in PS

  • 5 of 5
Thanks to the owners for opening up their home and allowing us to enjoy a vacation with friends. We felt like we were in Spain and never wanted to leave the home. We only left to walk into town to enjoy shopping and rode their bikes throughout the neighborhood on a few occassions. The home is magical - love the openness throughout, the double fireplaces, the relaxing feel of home, the garden, outdoor entertaining spaces and incredible views of the mountains. The owners spared no details - extremely well designed and decorated and very private. We will be back and often to enjoy this home.

Fantastic Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The 6 of us stayed at this wonderful house over the holidays and it was awesome. Location is ideal as it's on a very quiet street, easy to get to everything, and bikes are available (we rode through the neighborhood/the bike trail). The house has everything you could possibly want or need including multiple tvs, an office space/desk if you "have" to work, and plenty of room for your dog to play. The pool/hot tub and outdoor area is like an oasis. We spent most of the day in the pool and eating out on the patio. We had a great time and look forward to coming back again.

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.
