Desert Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Vista del Monte was perfection. The pictures don't do the property justice. I can't wait for another retreat to the desert and stay here.

Second Time at Vista del Monte even better than the first

  • 5 of 5

The place is gorgeous! Every detail is thoughtful and well designed. This is my second time staying at the place and the owners added a bunch of nice touches that make it feel like a luxury the towel covers rolled up nicely on the lounge chairs by the pool! Great place for a family or a fun adult getaway. We were in town with another couple for the Desert Trip show and it was the perfect home base to relax and recharge before heading out to a concert each night. Highly recommend staying at Vista del Monte if you have a chance.

Vista del Monte: A Dream Home, A Slice of Palm Springs Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Vista del Monte. It was the perfect location in Palm Springs for a weekend getaway! The house is a dream home for anyone who appreciates Spanish style architecture and aesthetics. It was quite apparent that much care and thought was put into the design of each room. There was so much to look at and appreciate, we couldn't stop taking pictures of everything. We just loved everything about it! The house came equipped with everything one would need for a relaxing, no stress stay. The backyard was paradise! We enjoyed the freshness and coolness of the pool, as well as lounging around the well-landscaped backyard. The backyard got a nice breeze throughout the day and provided some relief from the high temperatures. Although we were only visiting for a couple days, it truly felt like home.

The owner, Brandon, was very easy to work with and was quick to respond to my emails. He even made the effort to call during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed and to answer any questions. The property manager, Tom, was punctual, flexible, and very friendly. He was easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to any missed calls. He was very informative when it came to showing us the house. Tom made us feel comfortable and welcomed us with cold water and delicious toffee popcorn. We had a great experience and can't wait to return!

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous comfortable exquisitely appointed home. The owners have furnished it like a true 1930s is very special. I felt immediately at home. The bedding is soft and luxurious. Bath and pool towels plush. Kitchen has all you need to cook and serve great meals. The lemon trees provided fruit for pitchers of iced water and tea...lovely. The saltwater pool was perfect....I did not want to leave.

On arrival the property manager met us and answered all questions. The owner telephoned to see how we were settling in. Both were available by text and phone for all of our needs. We felt very comfortable contacting them.

Our only concern was the road noise. It is located on a main street and the traffic is busy. Other than that this wonderful home is a perfect vacation destination, especially if you appreciate early California Spanish architecture and antiques.

We are grateful the owners make it available for others to enjoy and have hired a warm and informed manager to assist their guests.

This is an incredibly well-restored Mexican style home, beautifully set up for a family or four plus another couple, in our case, grandparents. It's warm and inviting without being intimidating; lots of attention to small details, including the kitchen tile which is amazing. The garden is young but when the grapes grow over the arbor, it will be heavenly. Both Tom as property manager and Brandon as owner were accessible, helpful and at all times delightful. For some the location on N Indian Canyon and the fact that the property is situated in the windier side of Palm Springs might proved a deterrent, it wasn't so for us. I will say access in and out of the property by car is a little tricky but manageable. I'd return in a heartbeat.
