Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in your house and would be glad to write glowing reports if asked. Tomorrow, three friends, docents at the Palm Springs Art Museum whose special interest is Modernism, have asked if they could do a quick walk through here. They know all about the history of Park Imperial but have not been on the inside of any unit. We're proud to show it. We loved the location of your home, it's very private, has wonderful mountain views and is amazing architecture. That said, we very much enjoyed our time in the Springs, as always. Mark and Susan

Mid century modern classic

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved staying in this classic MCM is so spacious, private and perfect for entertaining! I loved the kitchen with the original stove and cabinets. Kitchen was also well equipped with everything you need. The pots and pans are a bit old, but functional. The pool was great and there were days when we were the only ones there. The location of this complex is perfect! Within walking distance of shopping centres, the buzz free shuttle bus to downtown and just a few steps away from the sun line bus.

Our only disappointment is that it is not available for next year.

Amazing, wonderful, terrific.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, wonderful stay in Feb. The unit is quiet, spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The MCM architecture is classic. The complex was on the Moderism Week tours. It was fun seeing inside other units in the complex. The views are spectacular. Everything we needed was here, just BYO hairdryer! Close to hiking trails, downtown, shopping, restaurants. This unit is at the end, so benefits from two large private patio spaces. James was very responsive with details before we settled in. Luckily, we didn't need him after that!! Hopefully we'll be back. A fabulous month in Palm Springs.

Mid Century Modern!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We've rented from James the last 5 winters and truly enjoyed our stay there. The large backyard with separate BarBQ area and private tanning area are unique to all other condos in the complex. The kitchen is original mid century modern, a turquoise stove with controls that are mounted on the wall. The beds are very comfortable and both bedrooms have louvred windows that open for good air flow. The location is fabulous. We look forward to our next stay in the condo. Everyone can enjoy this condo.

happy rainbirds

  • 4 of 5

We loved getting away from the rainy northwest and into this light filled mid century modern house. The decor is authentic but it is still very comfortable. The terrace is the biggest in the entire complex and as well used sunny spot as well as a great place to store our bikes.

Location is great, near hiking trails, golf and can walk to the stores at smoketree.

the kitchen was well stocked and had all that you could need for your stay, plenty of towels and bedding. The beds were comfortable but it would be even better if some time in the future at least one could be changed into a king size bed.

When a emergency repairs were needed James was very responsive and easy to reach. He paid for our stay in a hotel and additional expenses while he arranged for the repairs to be done as quickly as possible, thanks again James.

We had a great time and hope to return in the future.

Original Mid Century Modern Gem

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place to stay! This home is super original and the important details are intact. For the modernism fan; The owner has kept the original details that really make this home spectacular! It has a fabulous terrazzo entry that leads you directly to an amazing private patio with million dollar mountain views. A original mahogany kitchen with awesome turquoise appliances, an original bar and very cool ball light fixtures. An unbelievable folded plate roofline! -this place really inspired me, it will inspire you! The owner has this condo extremely well appointed for your comfort. Plenty of linens, dishes, cookware, etc. The beds are wonderful and you'll sleep like a baby. I couldn't recommend this place enough for your stay!
