About Paul Schumaker

Why Paul Schumaker chose Racquet Club Estates

We love the desert lifestyle, and the proximity is perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. We're big fans of mid-century architecture, and love the neighborhood. We purchased the house in 2008, and spent the entire summer renovating it.

What makes this house unique

If you like post-modern style, you'll love the house. We really tried to preserve the architectural integrity of the home, while making it comfortable, stylish and most of all fun. We like our guests to feel like they're getting away from it all, Palm Springs style!

Peaceful, bright house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Paul and Dean's house in Palm Springs was just what we needed to escape our hectic lives in LA. The house is an Alexander design, with big bright windows reflecting the beautiful desert mountains and landscape in every room of the house. Paul was attentive and available for any questions before and during our stay. The house was clean, had all the amenities needed, central AC, and a beautiful pool with a waterfall. The house is also a quick 15 minute walk to Palm Springs proper, if you're needing a city escape. Will definitely stay here again!

Everything about this home is just fabulous! It's clean, well appointed, nicely furnished, and just a really great space. Everything you could need is provided and then some. We spent most of our time outdoors, in the pool. With 2 young children, having the 2 umbrellas over the steps was perfect and provided a nice relief from the sun when needed. The owners are also wonderful! Easy to communicate with and they truly want you to have a wonderful stay. I would easily say they are the best I've dealt with. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Place to Stay in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

Paul's house was a wonderful oasis. When we visited it was over one hundred and ten degrees the pool was a life saver. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, the house is filled with natural light, the couch is big enough for two and the beds were comfortable. Thanks so much for the amazing get away :)

My 2 best friends and I stayed here last weekend and we absolutely loved everything about this home! It looks exactly like the photos, if not better. The place is clean and so comfortable!

Paul, the owner is super sweet and very communicative. We can't wait to return! Thanks, Paul. 😊

Peaceful Palm Springs Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My two best friends and I rented this home over Memorial Day Weekend and we all loved it! Paul is amazing to work with: from my initial inquiry to checking out, it was all a breeze.

The house is at the end of a cul de sac, it is spacious and clean. The pictures on line don't do the place justice. The house is well maintained and the landscaping is perfect. We all had a bedroom with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are clean and bright. The kitchen is great, stocked with all the basics you may need, the living room is open and a great pace to crash and watch some TV after a tough day of sitting in the sun. We spent most of our time swimming or sitting by the pool or relaxing in the small upper patio area next to the pool. The view of the mountains is amazing. The location is so quiet and peaceful but there is a grocery store a few blocks away and nothing in Palm Springs is really "far away." We didn't even bother with a rental car, we used Uber our entire stay. My only regret is that I didn't stay the entire week!

I will definitely rent this beautiful house again. Thanks so much Paul!
