For more information and to see more pictures of both our beautiful, eco-friendly Palm Springs houses, click on the Green Desert Rentals link below.

Welcome to Green Oasis: a beautiful, luxurious, spacious three bedroom, three bathroom house in the desirable wind-free South Palm Springs area. House is just around the corner from the Mesquite Country Club and a few minutes drive to downtown Palm Springs and the Resort Spa Casino as well as the Smoke Tree shopping complex.

This house is powered by solar panels, with conventional back up, and our pool and spa are warmed by a gas heater with the help of a solar heater. Our beautiful desert-scape garden saves on water and our lighting system saves on energy.

Very private backyard is planted with mature citrus trees -- loaded with fruit in winter, fragrant with blossoms in Spring. Fantastic view of mountains in the West for amazing sunsets and cloud shows. Backyard features gas barbecue and extra comfy lawn furniture with the thickest cushions. See more pictures at our website.

Master bedroom features California king bed and walls covered with Shag (Josh Aigle) prints. Master has 37 inch flat screen t.v. with DVD player and cable. Second bedroom is great for kids with twin beds and t.v. with DVD player. Twin beds can be pushed together as a single bed. Entertainment Den has 50 inch flat screen with HBO and Showtime, sound system, and a pull-out couch for two more sleepers. Back bedroom has queen bed and flat screen t.v. with cable.

Remodeled Kitchen is fully equipped with brush steel appliances and microwave. We have new non-stick cookware, new plates, new glassware, new flatware. Good selection of bake ware and a mixer, panini maker, blender, etc. In the kitchen is a desk area with a new desktop computer running Windows 8. We have WiFi.

Living room has cathedral ceiling, piano, fireplace, loads of original art and African wood sculptures.

Pack and play and high chair is available.

Directly across from the house is a park with two well maintained tennis courts that are always available. Play at night under the lights and enjoy our croquet set on the grass. Area is lovely, quiet, sandwiched between golf courses and parks -- a warm and tranquil piece of paradise.

Will consider small to medium, housebroken, non-chewing, flea-free dogs. Credit cards accepted with service charge added onto total price.

House is limited to 8 sleepers and no more than 8 guests are allowed at the house at any one time. Parties, barbecues, events or gatherings of more than 8 are not allowed, sorry.

Higher rates for weeks of Coachella -- 2200.00 plus taxes, cleaning, pool heating (optional)

Month of March only: 7,500.00 plus cleaning fee and pool and spa heating (optional).

“We weren't just having a GREAT TIME we were having a FABULOUS time!! This year brought us to over 30 years of experiencing Palm Springs. The consensus of everyone in the group was that this is our all time favorite memory and our very favorite home! Your website and the virtual tour doesn't do your home justice ! Everything was just perfect, from the furnishings, amazing artwork, the layout, the yard, patio, pool, spaciousness, location. I could go on. One of the 'girls' in the group is a professional decorator and she couldn't say enough about your home. Your appointment to detail was to perfection!! We will definitely be back and I hope to use the home with my family as well. Thanks again for enabling us to have the perfect time the perfect the perfect home.”

Barbara W. San Diego, CA

'My needs were simple. To celebrate my partner’s birthday, I wanted a weeklong rental of a nice house in Palm Springs, with a pool and enough bathrooms and beds for her family to join us on the weekend. The pictures and descriptions on the website were nice, but having rented many vacation homes in the past, I know that things are not always as they appear on screen. That was absolutely not the case on Alta Loma Drive. My high expectations were quickly exceeded. Here’s what we got: a beautiful, clean and uniquely decorated and lit home and outdoor area, a heated saltwater pool and spa, a great kitchen with every appliance we would need (and we cooked 3 meals a day), TVs in every room, a great sound system and home theater set-up, outdoor dining, a manicured park and private tennis courts across the street, (rackets and balls provided), a computer with fast internet access, breeze-manufacturing ceiling fans outside, and very nice neighbors. We’d had big plans to visit downtown, go to Joshua Tree, see some interesting desert architecture, etc. It didn’t happen. Except to shop for groceries, we never left the house. It was as close to perfect as eight days at 110+ degrees can be.

I was hesitant to post this note for obvious reasons. I don’t want you renting this beautiful house the next time I call Clark to check its availability.

Oh, and one last and very important comment – The home’s air conditioning system was a selfless, tireless champion of our comfort.' - Philip M, San Francisco, CA

'Just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay - the weather and the house were perfect. We have been coming to Palm Springs at least once a year for the last 5 years now and this is by far the nicest house we have rented. All the little details make it a real home away from home, the piano, the computer, etc. The only problem we had was leaving - we simply didn't want to go back to the UK! Clark was very helpful with all our enquiries. We want to come back next year but you are getting booked up already!' - Samantha & Kate, East Sussex, England

About Clark Carlton

I am the owner and manager of two houses in south Palm Springs. Here in Los Angeles I manage an upscale two bedroom guest house in historic Hollywood. I also manage two beautiful houses in Hanalei, Hawaii on spectacular Kauai. I take pride in the upkeep of all these properties and my business philosophy is to offer a high quality experience for a reasonable price. In addition to my work as a property manager, I am a writer and painter. Thank you for stopping by.

Clark Carlton purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Across the street from park with free tennis courts, large grassy area for dogs, only a few minutes from Downtown Palm Springs, even closer to the Smoke Tree Shopping Center with great super markets, Pet Smart, World Market, craft store, restaurants.

Great home, great location and great owner/manager!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visit Palm Springs twice annually and have used VRBO over the last 3 or 4 years. This was our first visit to this home and overall I would strongly recommend this home for its amenities (comfortable both inside and out), its location (quiet, protected from wind, and a short walk to a park with tennis courts), and its owner/manager (Clark Carlton). We have experienced many homes in the area over the last few years and are of the opinion that this property compares favourably to even more expensive homes and gives good value for your vacation home rental dollar. Clark is second to none in responding to queries on a timely basis before, during and after your stay. Congratulations and thank you Clark. We hope to visit this home again.

Amazing, wonderful home..Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

As the other reviews say, this house is amazing and the pictures just don't do it justice. While there was only 3 of us, the layout is perfect for a larger group or multiple couples since one bedroom is on the other side of the house. The pool and hot tub are incredible and definitely worth paying for the pool heat in the winter. Clark responds immediately to any questions and was just a pleasure to work with. The backyard is totally private and the outdoor furniture is beyond comfortable. Made fresh juice in the mornings from the citrus trees. The location is just a few minutes from multiple stores so it was easy cooking meals there. The winter is a wonderful time to visit Palm Springs and we were swimming in the pool with 84 degree weather on Thanksgiving day!! The extra touches that I have not had in other rentals were there including lots of towels, soft sheets, comfortable beds and every kitchen utensil you need for cooking. The bbq was already hooked up to gas (have rented several homes with gas BBQ and propane tank is always empty!) You just can't go wrong with this home, we will definitely be back!!

Perfect In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a place! The pictures shown do not do this place justice! the artwork and furnishings are beautiful. The layout is fantastic. My sister, her two kids, and myself were very comfortable and enjoyed having our own rooms and bathrooms. The house was spotless and and well stocked with dishes, towels, etc. The location could not have been more convenient- nearby stores, restaurants and parks. The owner, Clark, was very welcoming and helpful. My e:mails were always answered promptly. I would not only recommend this vacation property, we would stay here again without hesitation!

Nearest Point of Interest
Park with tennis courts
Nearest Point of Interest
Mesquite Country Club
Car: recommended

We are just around the corner from the Mesquite County Club and just south of the Bel Air Greens golf course. Our street and backyard face a view of the spectacular San Jacinto mountains on the west side. Area is very quiet and private and gets very little traffic. Across the street from this house is a lovely green park with two well maintained tennis courts where you can play at night. Just a few minutes drive away is downtown Palm Springs with its galleries, restaurants, night life and casinos. It's a warm and tranquil piece of paradise.
