About Jorge Martinez

Born in Havana-Cuba moving to the USA in 1969. Grew up mostly in the South Bay of Los Angeles County graduating from Mira Costa High School in 1975. Have lived in Manhattan Beach, Torrance, Long Beach, Bakersfield, and now Palm Springs. Hospitality has been my carrier since my first job just out of high school. Now enjoying life to the fullest and sharing a piece of Paradise with my guests.

Jorge Martinez purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Jorge Martinez chose Palm Springs

Being in the Hospitality Industry all my life I long dreamed of owning my own business where I could provide deluxe, comfortable, and personable but yet private accommodations for travelers from all parts of the world. Since the late 1970’s I often vacationed in Palm Springs where I always enjoyed the warm sunny weather and relaxing resort style atmosphere this wonderful town has to offer. The Mid-Century Modern architecture, majestic mountains surrounding the valley and historic Hollywood movie star flair are but a few features that makes Palm Springs like no other location in the world.

When it came time to choose the destination for my dream I considered other locations like Hawaii and Key West, but the charm and location of this amazing desert city far outweighed any others I could have chosen. So, in 1996 I made the best decision I ever made in my life and chose Palm Springs to live out my dream. Since then my experience here has surpass my expectations and every day that goes by I continue to find new exiting things to see and do, and what a great feeling it is to share that with my guests!

What makes this apartment unique

The central location of this property is one of the unique benefits you will enjoy with the ability to walk downtown for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and the active night life that makes Palm Springs one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. Additional benefits include having your very own full kitchen, private patio with outdoor gas grill, relaxing by the heated pool and spa, and enjoying the majestic views of our beautiful mountains which include hiking trails, waterfalls, and local flora. Built in the late 1950’s a recent renovation has incorporated the Mid-Century Modern architecture that was original to the building with modern touches such as flat screen televisions, slate tile walk-in showers with glass panel, rain shower head, glass vessel sinks and black marble counter tops resulting in a mix between history and today’s comfort necessities.

Another very unique feature of this property is the original retro kitchen which is a replica of the kitchen used in Holly Golightly’s (Audrey Hepburn) apartment in the classic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

The best unique benefit I can personally offer you is the most honest, personable, and friendly service in the Industry while respecting your privacy. I personally handle all aspects of my vacation rental apartments and look forward to being of service.

Great property...great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our recent stay in Palm Springs. We were 2 couples, and the house afforded us great space, with all the comforts of home, while being very convenient to downtown and all amenities. The house is as described, but the best perk is the owner/manager on site. Jorge is the ultimate host, shows pride in his property and was a wealth of information! We were very impressed when we spent the day in the pool area after a day of extreme wind, and Jorge arranged for the pool guy to come and do a clean of the pool and hot tub to add to our enjoyment. That attention to detail was noticed and truly appreciated. We would definitely recommend, and will be back to enjoy again!

Owner's Response: I love receiving comments from past guests and it is specially appreciated when the comments express that the guest's experience surpassed their expectations. Being able to take care of guest needs in a quick matter is one of the pleasures of being on the premises as a host while allowing guests to have their privacy at the same time.

Smaller complex, quaint, safe, central location to groceries, coffee shops and many specialty stores

  • 4 of 5

Great little retro place, with privacy and safe surroundings, and quiet. Location, location--Located a few blocks from everything you might need. Groceries, coffee & donut shops (Swiss donut) and strip mall specialty items. You could catch a bus to the downtown area easily. Rooms were clean, and well stocked kitchen. Little private green spaces outside, and a pool and spa, nicely heated. Jorge was a gem. Very helpful and personable. Definitely will recommend and stay again.

'Breakfast at Tiffany's' in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples in Palm Springs for a wedding weekend. The apartment was delightful as well as clean, comfortable and large enough to afford us space from one another. We had three separate venues over the course of the weekend and all were nearby as was downtown. Jorge was a gracious, helpful and unobtrusive host. If we find ourselves back in Palm Springs we will surely stay here again. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Attending a wedding or special event can be stressful at times, especially when it involves a close family member, I am pleased to provide accommodations and services that are one less thing event goers need to worry about. Glad to hear you found the location and space appropriate for your needs. Hope to hear from you again.

sparkling clean, amazing host and wonderfully convenient.

  • 5 of 5

As always, I was exceptionally happy with this unit. I am a return client and stay here every year. Jorge is an amazing host and always greets me with a big smile and a happy Hello ! I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I come to Palm Springs for an annual reunion with my friends.

I highly recommend this rental for anyone who wants a true Home Away From Home.

Your new vacation home is located near Downtown in the none windy South Area of Palm Springs, California. Made famous in the mid 1900's by Hollywood Movies Stars, Palm Springs was the place Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, and Bob Hope got away to play golf and drink martinis by the pool. Located less than 100 miles (2 hour drive) from Los Angeles, Palm Springs is still home to many stars in the entertainment industry. Local Movie Star Tours will show you where they live. Walk to downtown from your apartment and stroll through the sidewalks gazing at the Walk of Stars to find your favorite idol or shop at the many stores located in the Downtown Village. The mountain views are amazing. Ascend 2.5 miles to a pristine wilderness aboard the World's Largest Rotating Tram Cars and hike for hours amongst nature or enjoy the many other amenities available at the top. Golf, hiking, shopping, and a lively nightlife are but a few of the things to do here.
