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, 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 modern touches with the Mid-Century Modern architecture that was original to the building resulting in a mix between history and today’s comfort necessities.

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 Retro Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're yearning for the the 50's....this is the place! A comfy apartment, walk-able to downtown Palm Springs. Jorge was very accessible to our needs and made us feel welcome. The apartment we stayed in (no.4), was perfect for a couple. The pool was steps away. We recommend a stay.

Quiet Location! Adorable Retro Complex!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the retro decor in Apt #4! Jorge was very accommodating with early check-in and the extra touch of providing a Ralph card with your keys! Enjoyed the quietness here and closeness to downtown. Hope to return!

Great Little Place

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful small boutique style condo...loved it! We stayed at the condo's as part of our winter vacation in 2017. The place is quiet and is well set up with all necessities in the suite. The location is great, only a 15 minute enjoyable walk to shopping and dining. Jorge, the owner, is an unassuming quiet gentlemen and makes sure you have what you need during your stay. Jorge showed us the other 3 suites and they are all nice and clean with an individual theme in each one. Our stay was excellent and we will be returning.

Owner's Response: It was a joy to host Russ and Leslie. Part of being a host is the joy of meeting people from all over the world that enjoy and take advantage of everything life has to offer and I am always happy to be a part of their experience. I look forward to continue being a host for many years to come and look forward to continue meeting travelers from every corner of the world.

good location to downtown but unit 4 needs some updates and deep cleaning.

  • 1 of 5

The blinds are old and dirty and don't keep any light out. The rental is Retro but is in need of some serious updates and good cleaning. The owner was helpful as we had never been to Palm Springs but we would not stay here again.

This place is not retro modern....the bathroom was really gross.

Owner's Response: I own four vacation rental units and occasionally I may overlook something that needs improvement so I appreciate it when a guest comment will bring it up to my attention. I agree that the blinds need updating and have scheduled to have the work completed, I have also scheduled for some of the bathroom fixtures to be upgraded as I can see how something that is a vintage original piece can be considered dirty when it is actually just worn with age, but It is my opinion that a one star rating and the harsh words used by the guest that wrote this review are exaggerated and unrealistically magnified as you can see from other guest comments which I invite you to read and are continually very satisfied. I am glad this guest liked the location of my property and the service I provided, the other issues can be easily corrected, by the time you read this it is most likely the rental unit already has the new upgrades mentioned. I thank you in advance for your anticipated understanding.

Great vintage apartment in central location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent seven days at Warm Sands Apartment in January 2016. We were looking for a place that was not on a golf course or other resort, and that was located near the center of town. We liked the fact that this was an older, smaller complex, and the 50s decor really added to its appeal. It’s in a convenient location with free off-street parking, and the neighborhood is quiet and safe.

Jorge, the owner, advised us about amenities in the area, and we used a rewards card on the key ring to get discount prices at the nearby Ralphs supermarket. During our stay we visited Joshua Tree National Park and Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, as well as family in the Yucaipa and Redlands areas. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants an affordable, conveniently located vacation rental with a vintage decor.
