Why Keith Crosley chose Palm Springs

We fell in love with Palm Springs on our honeymoon and have searched for years for the ideal place to call our home away from home. The "Elrod Villa" is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing properties we've ever seen here in Palm Springs. From its architectural and design significance, to its unique period details, to its stunning mountain views, it was (once again) love at first sight.

The property's previous owners have all shared our dedication to preserving the unique charm of this gorgeous place, while updating it with modern amenities that we expect from a vacation home.

Polished and professional

  • 5 of 5

I reserved the property for my parents in law for a special weekend getaway in Palm Springs. While I did not stay at the property personally, the reviews from my wife's parents were simply over the moon. The home was clean, provided beautiful scenery and ambiance, and the heated pool finished off the experience perfectly. The gentleman who welcomed them upon their arrival was professional and friendly, and made them feel welcome.

Keith, the owner was an absolutely pleasure to work with. He was timely with responses, well spoken, and gave each question and request the response we needed. They even provided a welcome basket and bottle of wine.

I have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone else visiting Palm Springs. I know my parents in law are already talking about when they can get back for another visit!

Gorgeous place!

  • 5 of 5

We lived our stay at the Elrod Villa. The place is gorgeous, pool is amazing, and the sound system really is THAT good.

The owner, Keith, was so accomodating.

The place was clean and in great condition.

We absolutely recommend it to all couples.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Yehuda, for your kind comments and for staying with us at Elrod Villa Palm Springs! We're so glad you enjoyed the stereo! (That's one of my favorite features of the home... and one that "sold" me on it when we first discovered Elrod Villa.) We hope that you'll stay with us again on future visits to Palm Springs. Best regards, Keith at Elrod Villa

Perfect escape - luxury seclusion, an oasis of serenity

  • 5 of 5

First off, let me say the spectacular pictures can't even do this wonderful home justice - it was incredible! Coming from what is sometimes thought to be near the Arctic Circle (Minnesota), Palm Springs was just what the doctor ordered. Plenty to see and do nearby, but Elrod Villa was the star of the vacation - nice to get out for the day, but even nicer to get back, enjoy the pool and spa, the artwork, make a meal in the fully decked out kitchen and just relax under the stars. Keith and Reed were both great to get along with, very quick and thorough on all inquiries and requests. Our only regret was our schedule did not allow us to stay longer. We have recommended this place to everyone we know!

Just Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This house is amazing! Very clean, high ceilings, tasteful decor, a great sound system, and if you like lighting, this place has it all. You are able to change lighting throughout the house to fit any mood you wish. Plenty of pantry items, beautiful bathrooms and spa robes. The outdoors is also very nice, but the reason for the 4 stars is because the pool is not for swimming, only wading. It looks way larger in the photo. Luckily, there is a good size community pool and spa just steps away if you want to swim. I loved Reed, he is wonderful and available if you need him. I also want to thank Keith for letting us have a late check out.

Owner's Response: Crystal, I'm so glad you and your group had a great time at Elrod Villa! Thanks for the kind comments on Reed (he is truly amazing and makes the whole thing possible) and I'm so glad you enjoyed our crazy lights and sound system! I'm sorry that the size and depth of the pool didn't match up to your expectations, but glad that you mentioned and enjoyed the huge community pool just steps away! You guys were great and we look forward to welcoming you back to Elrod Villa on future getaways to the desert. I'm so glad you got to take advantage of late checkout. Do visit us again. Best regards, Keith

Unbelievable Home!!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a much needed vacation at the Elrod Villa and I can't say enough about this property! Keith, the owner, was so helpful before and during my stay. Keith (and Reed the property manager) was always available to answer my questions, so my vacation went very smoothly. Now, about the home...Upon arrival, I was very surprised to find that it was even better than the photos! This place is a mid-century modern dream and probably the coolest place I have ever stayed. All of the amenities were present; I could not have asked for anything else and the location is convenient to everything in Palm Springs. I plan on returning later this year and highly recommend this property! 10 stars!!!
