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.

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.

Great one bed apartment in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our few days staying in one of Jorge's apartments in Palm Springs. We stayed as a family of four (2 adults, 2 young children). Property was as described and Jorge was home and on hand when needed when we had questions but not intrusive otherwise. We had a great time in the pool and in the hot tub!! Good location in terms of downtown, nearby supermarkets, access to tourist attractions.

We enjoyed the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, the Children's Discovery Center and The Living Desert while we were there, plus a ranger at the top of the tramway gave us a tip to check out the Whitewater Preserve - glorious and quiet wading pond in lovely surroundings and for free! Great Shakes supplied us with fab milkshakes too. Great short break for the family.

Owner's Response: I love hosting guests from all over the world and introducing them to all the wonderful things our area has to offer. Providing accommodations that guests have come to expect is always my goal and it is a pleasure to hear that is exactly what they experience. I love being close by to take care of any needs that may arise and help guests with local information while at the same time respecting their privacy and look forward to continue doing that for a long time to come.

The best month-long vacation I have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

When coming for a Palm Springs vacation, I want a place at which I feel comfortable and can relax. That is exactly what this place offers! This was my second time staying here (I visited last year as well), and it was just as perfect and charming as I remembered. Last year, I rented it for a week. This year, I stayed for a month, and it was the perfect vacation.

The apartment is incredibly clean and has all the comforts of home at your fingertips. It is located very close to downtown, so getting to the local attractions, grocery stores or restaurants/bars are all literally 5 minutes away by car. Downtown is close enough to walk to it if you wish. This apartment is centrally located to everything!

I spent most of my days lounging in the pool and enjoying the quietness of the area. Rather than a large and busy resort, this place is calm and soothing. Exactly what I was looking for in a vacation rental.

The owner is incredibly friendly and keeps everything clean, tidy and prepared for anything you may need. He even has some great recommendations for new places to eat or see in town while you are there.

I can't say enough about this place, and I've been telling my friends all about it. I recommend it to everyone I know. I am looking forward to returning every year!

Owner's Response: I love it when repeat guests end up becoming friends, and that is exactly how I feel about this guest. It is such a joy to be complimented for doing things that I love to do such as making people feel at home. After a month long stay it takes a while to get used to not seeing him around but the best part is that I know he will be back so I look forward to that. How many days till next August? :-) Jorge
