About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8, 3500 square feet

Freshly painted, new furnishings and newly landscaped in November 2016! Stand by for new pictures.

Weekend rentals available one month in advance or between gaps.

Spectacular, airy, immaculate house in South Palm Springs is powered by the sun and has conventional back up. Watch our electric meter run backwards! Solar panels are discreetly placed and invisible from the front or back. At 3500 square feet, you won’t lack for room in this comfortable, beautiful and sunny home. House is newly renovated and gorgeously furnished, with original art, a three car garage and a heated pool and spa. We are very near to the Indian Canyons Golf Resort which is open to the public.

Area is far to the south in non-windy Palm Springs, in the prestigious Canyon Country Club neighborhood which receives full sun and has the best views of the San Jacinto mountains from its million dollar plus homes. Have no fear of golf balls or golf carts as we are off the fairway.

The backyard has a shade porch and a 33 foot pool with an attached spa. A six foot hedge provides total privacy for backyard living. Grab some fruit from our citrus trees to squeeze your morning juice and use the outdoor shower. Outdoor dining furniture seats eight. Pool area has four loungers and an outdoor fridge/wet bar and two sitting areas.

All rooms in this house are spacious and sunny with travertine tiles and amazing, original paintings throughout. Living room has soaring cathedral ceiling, fireplace (electric) and views of the pool and mountains. The master bathroom is the size of a Manhattan apartment and has a sunken tub and separate shower. Master bedroom has two enormous walk-in closets, each the size of a bedroom. We have added two roll away beds to accommodate more guests.

T.V. den is cool and cozy with shelves full of books and a 42 inch HD television with DVD player and equipped with Roku for access to Netflix, Hulu, etc. Kitchen is fully equipped with island counter, gourmet cookware and state of the art appliances as well as a television. Next to it is a sunny breakfast room for reading the paper as well as an outdoor breakfast nook in the shade. Cabinets have crystal and wine glasses and three different sets of china.

Flat screen televisions with cable and HBO are in all bedrooms. Long distance calling is free and WiFi is provided for your laptop. A mini-business center with P.C., printer and fax is provided for your use. The computer is connected to DSL.

Solar powered air conditioning keeps this place cool in the hot months. Pool is heated by solar pool heaters with conventional pool heater for backups and heating the spa.

Small to medium dogs are welcome that are clean, flea-free, quiet, non-chewing and housebroken.

High chair and pack and play are available.

Pool and spa heating are not included from October 1 to June 1 and is recommended for the cooler months. Please let us know if you are interested in using the spa and/or heating the pool and we will include in the quote. The price for pool and spa heating is higher in the winter months.

If the time you are interested in is booked, please check out our other beautiful rental in south Palm Springs, VRBO #83389.

'This magnificent private home was stunning from the first look, from the gated and beautifully landscaped exterior into the grand foyer. The wonderful marble floors and high ceilings showcase the gorgeous mountains. We loved the high tech kitchen with full amenities, breakfast nook and the formal dining room, the fireplace and the elegant bedrooms. The video room was inviting and the pool and spa are in a lovely backyard. It feels as if Palm Springs is giving you a gigantic hug. It's the type of comfort you'll want to visit over and over.'

Caren B., Los Angeles, CA

'We love your home! Not enough superlatives can describe the comfortable seating, artwork, etc. The great room is really great. The den is so cozy I could [and did] spend all day in there. The MBR is so quiet I thought it must be sound proofed. The neighborhood is a wonderful cornucopia of mid-century architecture which we love. I would love to rent from you again.'

Adrian H., Redondo Beach, CA

'I cannot begin to tell you how much we enjoyed the home. We did lots of golfing, shopping, touring but the best times were at the house. The weather was fantastic which was an added bonus. It was the most relaxing, private and enjoyable home we have ever rented and we will speak very highly of this property and your service to all our Canadian family and friends. We want to already start planning to come back next year.'

About Clark Carlton

I am a property manager and owner who lives full time in Los Angeles. My own properties are in beautiful Palm Springs, California. I also book guests for two houses in spectacular Hanalei, Hawaii on the garden island of Kauai. Here in town I manage a guest house in a historic area of Hollywood, a community that is right in the heart of the greater Los Angeles area. This home is frequently rented by actors, film makers and producers as well as vacationers. I also manage several apartment complexes in addition to my work as a writer. All the owners I work for take great pride in the upkeep of their properties and our guests are always surprised to find the house is better then they imagined. Thanks for stopping by.

Clark Carlton purchased this house in 2007

Why Clark Carlton chose Palm Springs

Beautiful, upscale, quiet area close to the Smoke Tree Shopping Center and just a few minutes drive to downtown Palm Springs. The backyard gets more sunshine and has a view of the mountains not available in the foothill neighborhoods of Palm Springs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is an amazing space to unwind

  • 5 of 5

It is an older home so no disposal but and an odd system to watch tv but we’ll worth it. Bring your own tp my only complaint and paper towels. The owner Clint is quick to respond

Owner's Response: Connie, thank you. We do provide tp and hand soap for your arrival in each bathroom but as this is a vacation rental that usually rents for a week, a month, or longer, it is not practical for us to offer shampoo, body wash or other supplies. Our t.v. den offers cable t.v. including HBO, Showtime, ESPN etc as well as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon etc through Roku -- very updated. We also have a Blu-Ray player. The disposal was removed as too many guests put the wrong items down it and it was too expensive to keep replacing. We hope to rent to you again soon.

Peaceful and roomie

We had a lovely time at The Solar House. Fully equipped, clean, very spacious for people to enjoy themselves. Very quiet house and neighborhood. I LOVED the bath tub because I was able to soak my achy self. Counter tops were all a higher comfortable working space. We loved the private yard and used the pool daily. Closets are above and beyond and great having been able to use. Awesome book and DVD selection. We appreciately the use of the garage. This is definitely a house I would live in the rest of my life. Thank you for sharing. it

Beautiful Home in Exceptional Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental has it all -- gorgeous house in quiet, lovely neighborhood. The owner, Clark, is on top of everything. He is caring, professional, and conscientious and responds to any queries almost immediately. We had a question on New Year's Eve when we were enroute to the house, and Clarke promptly and kindly answered. He truly is a gem.

The house is HUGE! It was much larger than we expected. The master bathroom is larger than most people's bedrooms. And there is a TON of closet space. All 3 bedrooms have their own ensuite bathroom which is great for plenty of privacy for up to 3 couples. We liked having a formal living room as well as a comfy den. We stayed for 2 months (January and February), so having a hot tub and gas fireplace were very much appreciated. The kitchen is bright and has a lovely eat-in area in addition to the dining room and all the dining areas in the backyard. The view from the kitchen window of the mountains is so spectacular that we actually enjoyed washing dishes. :)

The neighborhood is definitely one of Palm Spring's best. Lots of gorgeous homes and lovely landscaping, and the shopping center with nearby Ralph's and Jensen's Supermarkets is within a 5 minute walk. Being in South Palm Springs, with minimal wind, is also lovely.

The owners of the home have 2 adorable dogs of their own, so they are very pet friendly. We brought our 2 dogs with us, and we really enjoyed our beautiful walks through the neighborhood every morning.

What more can I say? This house is a perfect vacation rental and should truly serve all the needs of anyone looking to have a wonderful vacation in Palm Springs.

Great house for multi generations!

  • 5 of 5

One week was not enough! My husband, our three kids and in laws as well as our dog all fit comfortably with plenty of space. The floor plan is split with 2 bedrooms on one side and one on other all with en suite bath. The fold out bed my daughter loved. There was another and a pack n play that we did not need.

The Master was huge and a relaxing get away. The kids loved the TV room and we loved the big dining table to do puzzles and have wine. The pool was perfect size to play in and we love the attached hot tub! My father in law who uses a cane really liked how easy it was to get in the pool with the wide steps. We loved the outdoor shower to clean the kids and the direct access to the master bath from the pool. I was very sad to leave that master bath...

The neighborhood is lovely and great for walking. It really is low wind - we were there with a wind storm and the backyard was very protected. Also just 2 minutes to a very nice Ralphs.

Kitchen was great although we got delicious take out so we never cooked any meals but microwave is great for heating leftovers.

Great wifi! Super fast and no trouble with streaming.

Will definitely return again!
