About the property

Recently updated home and 3 casitas. Perfect for family and friends.

This VERY unique private property is centrally located in a relaxing quiet neighborhood and boasts 3 newly customized Casitas adjacent to a Main House.

The property is ideal for groups looking to relax and enjoy their time in Palm Springs. All of our Casitas have their own fully equipped kitchen, towels, air-conditioning, wifi, cable, flat-screen TV, and full bathroom.

The main house is furnished with 2 bedrooms (full queen bed in the master and two full twin beds in the guest room), a new giant bathroom, large kitchen area, and living room with mounted flat-screen.

The First Casita has a queen bed and living room with a queen sofa sleeper.

The other Two Casitas have king size beds with an additional sofa bed. All units are poolside with private patios in the back.


The private pool area includes pool toys, lounge chairs, and a bbq area. Also there are 7 bikes available for your use to take the short ride to the downtown, Ruth Hardy Park and other scenic areas.

**Our property is meant to be shared by groups and individuals looking to enjoy a relaxing getaway. If you are looking for a place to party outdoors late into the night, our property will not be a good fit for you.**

Ideal for families getaways, reunions, golf vacations, girls weekends, staff retreats, midweek travelers, and romantic getaways.

Multi-Generation Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our entire family got together for a post holiday vacation and the Acacia Lodge was the PERFECT spot for Mom, Dad, our two sons and their wives, one daughter and her husband, 4 grandchildren, and two goldendoodles! Everyone had their "own space" and we got together to prepare family meals, played games, and swimming in the heated pool. Such a nice break to be present and to enjoy the pleasure of reconnecting once more. We all did what we enjoyed whether it be sight seeing (walk or bike to town) or just hanging out at the house and relaxing. Charming rooms and knowing that the dogs or the children would not be told "hands off" was a highlight as this is kid friendly (adult supervision for the pool, of course) and dog friendly too. The owner, Scott, was THE BEST!! 5 stars for him and for his customer service (even after the vacation when I left vitamin supplements..he mailed them to me!) This place reminds me of being at summer camp for the joy of being with your friends and family, discovering a few adventures, and sharing good times.

Went to have fun in the snow at the top of the tram. Great property for multiple families so everyone could have a little private space. Owner was very responsive leading up to the trip and answered every question we had. We will be back. Great pool!

Excellent Stay- Private, Beautiful and well located

  • 4 of 5

Our group (11 people) , really enjoyed our New Year Stay at Acacia Lodge. It was private, clean and very pretty. The location is great, a short walk away for grocery shops and downtown Palm Springs. Though the house is so nice we really only ventured for a hike to the painted canyon (highly recommended). As a group most of our time was spend pool side or in the main room playing pictionary and other board games. One could head to their own casita for a little down time, if needed, which was great.

We would strongly recommend this property for a big group. I would give 5 stars but took away one as we had no wifi for our stay as there was a technical glitch.

Perfect For Extended Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I attended a destination wedding at the Riviera in Palm Springs. Rather than stay at the hotel, we opted for the charming Acacia Lodge instead. So peaceful, private, comfortable, quaint, and yet just a two minute walk to the all of the wedding activities (three days worth!) at the hotel. We loved being able to return to our restful little oasis in the desert. We all wished that our stay could be longer.

The icing on the cake was above and beyond service from the owner. On arriving home, I realized that I had inadvertently left a pair of borrowed earrings on a shelf in the bathroom. I left a frantic message to the property owner and received a call back within MINUTES. Cleaning staff was alerted and the next day I received word that the earrings had been located and would be sent along to my sister; what a relief! Not only did Scott go out of his way to rectify MY mistake, but he would not accept any compensation for time, trouble, and postage.

This property was the best private Spanish retreat. We pretty much just stayed at the location. It was so relaxing and peaceful. I will book this property again. The property was very clean and well-maintained. I'll will recommend this property to all my friends.

Perfect for an extended-family weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Scott's property was exactly what we needed for our annual family weekend with Grandma and Grandpa and all their children and grandchildren. We had four families and we fit perfectly into the house and three casitas. The pool gave us all something to do during the day. We bbq'd and sat around on the patio chairs after the kids went to bed. We loved it!

Our Private Spanish Compound is located in North Palm Springs between the Palm Springs Tram and the Downtown area on Palm Canyon. You get the best of Palm Springs all in a VERY private setting but just a two block walk to the Riviera for an evening out or an afternoon walk to Ruth Hardy Park. Of course, a short bike ride to the Spa Casino or Downtown is always a favorite thing to do.
