Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay at this perfectly appointed house. It's everything you need and nothing you don't. The house is well kept, central, close to downtown, shopping, restaurants, parks. Great for kids, just as enjoyable for adults. Kathleen is one of the best owner/renters we've ever worked with - helpful, responsive, reasonable. We are hoping to go back sooner than later.

Best in town for the price!

The Martini House was better than we expected and I hope to return again soon.

The home is well maintained, clean, and furnished in a fun mid century theme. Beds are comfy, kitchen is very well appointed. We had plastic martini glasses for pool side, and mod glass ones for indoors. The location is close to everything.

Thank you, we had a GREAT visit ending with a relaxing day at the heated pool, and even brought home a few grapefruits from the tree out back.

Wonderful home in excellent neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two of our children visited Palm Springs for the first time as a family between Christmas and New Years day in 2017. We were fortunate to rent the Martini house. The house is incredibly conveniently located in old Movie Colony on quiet streat, walking distance to Ruth Hardy Park and a short drive to the main street and a shorter drive to Sunrise. The neighborhood itself is wonderful for walking or biking, is entirely residential, peaceful, nearly serene, and quite relaxed. The house itself has a small footprint, but the size is just right for a small family, and would work for a long term rental quite nicely for a couple. The house is extremely well stocked with appliances, cooking utensils, glasses, towels, and so on. There are two BRs and a den featuring full cable TV. The BRS both have TVs that are not cable, but which do feature streaming stations. A lot of thought has gone into furnishing and decorating the home, which barely shows its age. The backyard is lovely as is the pool, which we had heated for our stay (optional). The owner/operator provide all the instructions one would need to settle in quickly and comfortably. The beds in the BRs are comfortable and the entire feeling is both homey and suitable to its period. We could not have been more pleased with the service or the value. There is light everywhere and a wonderful mountain view. We all felt fortunate to have found such a wonderful home on such short notice. A real gem.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Nice place for our Christmas getaway. Great little neighborhood just a mile or so from the main drag. The place was very clean- really spotless. We were welcomed with a few holiday decorations and music playing. Nice touch, I thought. The kitchen was outfitted very well. Every utensil you could want, along with spices. The glassware and decor were super fun! Very mid-century, which was the reason we rented this place, and it did not disappoint. The furniture and decor were really great. Loved the pool with the martini design in the bottom. We did not swim, but it was pleasant to sit around the pool :-).

The bed needs a good mattress topper (getting a little lumpy). Could use a big tv in the living room. Those are my only criticisms.

The property was very nice,

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stayed at the Martini house, it's a good location and is well maintained. However the pool heater unfortunately was not working while we were there, which was certainly not what we expected. While it was disappointing to be without a heated pool, we were given a good refund for the problem by the owner. She showed her concern and was very good to deal with throughout the stay.
