About the property

3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths Sleeps 6

Welcome to my home in the fabled Movie Colony of Palm Springs. Newly available, this is a special place to stay. Totally remodeled to provide all the comforts of modern vacation living in a 2700 square foot space while preserving the vintage appeal of the glamorous Palm Springs lifestyle.

Situated on a quiet street, the Convention Center, Casino and downtown are within easy walking distance. There are stunning mountain views from both the front of the house and from the rear garden. With a 37 feet long saltwater pool you can lap swim or just laze in the water. Relax on one of the comfortable chaises,or in the jetted spa. Sip cocktails or dine al fresco on the cool veranda. The completely private garden offers you a free and relaxed lifestyle.

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE. This is not a party house. We are in a quiet residential area which strictly observes the Palm Springs noise ordinances. Any excess noise or outside music will result in police visits and fines which are the renters responsibility

Inside the house, sink in to the luxury of a large living room furnished with vintage pieces and contemporary art, or wander in to the media room and watch satellite TV on the 50-in screen, choose a DVD from our extensive collection or record your favorite programs to the DVR. There is also a top of the line queen sleeper sofa. This is a comfortable room for reading, relaxing and watching the magical light change over the mountains.

The expansive living space features a dining area with a classic contemporary table which extends to seat 12. Impress your guests as you swing open the cool pass through door to bring out your creations from the kitchen, which has all new cabinets, surfaces, high end appliances and every gadget and utensil a chef can desire. I provide an extensive choice of dishes to suit every occasion.

The house has a water softening and purifying system throughout to make your drinking water pristine and to counteract the hard desert water.

There are three bedrooms. The master has a California king bed and extensive closet space. There is a glass topped desk overlooking the garden if you need to catch up with work or just check your emails. Complimentary wireless internet extends throughout the house and garden The walk in shower and master bath lead directly out to the garden and pool.

The second bedroom has a king size bed and stunning views of the San Jacinto mountains. The bathroom is just across the hall and serves as the guest bathroom too.

At the other end of the house is an attached casita. Entered either from the garden or through a door in the dining room this quiet bedroom with its queen size bed and elegant bathroom has an air of privacy and tranquility. Just right if you want to get away for a little R and R!

Every bedroom has satellite TV and a DVD player. The living area has an iPod sound dock so that you can enjoy your own music.

We welcome you to our desert home and trust you will enjoy it as much as we do.

A little slice of paradise for us!

  • 5 of 5

Palm Springs, mid-century modern, impeccably maintained and everything you need for a wonderful escape. Load up at the grocery so you and your guests will have no reason to leave. Bright and open, it has a wonderful vibe.

Owner Andrew and concierge Steve were very accommodating as well. There is also a completely outfitted kitchen with quality table settings to suit any affair. We'll be back!

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I visited Palm Spring for a vacation and we had such amazing time here. Living is very spacious and the rooms were very comfortable. Master bedroom was very unique in design and the great art works were everywhere. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything and the house was greatly sound-proof even though the doors that led to the pool were made of glass. Steve, the manager of this property, recommended many attractions and took good care of us. We would definitely come back here for a vacation!

Fantastic, relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property: the house is spacious with an updated and fully-stocked kitchen. The backyard is large, the pool is great for relaxing, and there's plenty of outdoor furniture to lounge on. The owner is very quick to respond to questions. We would return in a heartbeat.

I can't recommend this rental home more highly...

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this rental home more highly. Beautiful lay out, meticulously maintained and very comfortable. Plenty of elbow room for six. The salt water pool was lovely. Professional and prompt, the owner Andrew responded quickly to all questions and to my surprise returned our deposit within a couple hours of check out. Though the owner was not in town his agent Steve went out of his way to make arrival and check out as convenient as possible and really seemed to want us to feel at home. He was also at the ready with helpful tips for our stay in Palm Springs. One of the best rental experiences I've had, period. Thanks!

Always amazing

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in this house a few times before it is always our preferred destination for good reason. The location, amenities, design, pool are all top notch and interacting with the manager (Steve) makes the stay enjoyable from beginning to end. I can't recommend staying here enough!!! We can't wait to return.
