Amazing Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just recently spent a week at the Cottage, sharing it, with a couple of friends and loved every minute of our stay. Mark was great to deal with and answered all our questions, usually, within minutes of asking them. The recent renovations to the Master Bedroom and Ensuite were fantastic and along with the incredible yard it was like staying in a luxury oasis. On top of everything, it was close to the Casino, downtown Palm Springs and great restaurants. We can't imagine ever wanting to stay anywhere else when we come back to Palm Springs!

Lovely break from winter rain

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous 6 days at Palm Springs Cottage. The Cottage is tastefully updated and has everything a tourist could desire - pool, barbecue, fully fitted kitchen, double headed shower in the en-suite and comfortable furniture inside and out. It made the trip all the more enjoyable knowing we could come back from a warm day out hiking to relax in the pool and prepare dinner without having to get ready to go out.

Palm Springs itself is a short drive or a 20 minute walk away so getting supplies or heading out to eat and explore the surrounding area was easy.

Mark was very professional in handling the booking and ensuring the Cottage was ready etc. We hope to come back once the Cdn dollar improves!

Beth from Canada adored the cottage!

  • 5 of 5

From the get go, dealing with Mark has been a pleasure. His professional and timely responses to all of my emails can only be surpassed by the cottage's amenities. Location, designer interiors,

the salt water pool and the level of service all made our trip truly memorable.

I left clothes at the cottage and Mark and Dave went beyond typical service standards to return them to me.

Bravo you guys for creating a fantastic holiday.

In terms of activities, we found Palm Springs inspiring. Canyon walks, shopping, Thursday night street fair, Desert Hot Springs day spa, and even a trip out to the Salton Sea were all thoroughly enjoyable.

Would not hesitate for a moment in recommending this cottage experience.

Relaxing Oasis in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time visiting Palm Springs Cottage. We had a lovely time; this is a darling home closely located everything. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and private. We dined outside each evening poolside; restful, relaxing and peaceful. When we had questions, Mark was quick to respond for any needs we had including restaurants. This kind of personal attention is what keeps us coming back.

Comfortable, cozy, clean and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second home that I rented from Mark. And just like the first one... what a great home this is as well! Beautifully and thoughtfully decorated... the house is also very comfortable. It fit like a glove, for the three days of my stay. Impeccably clean as well. It is located in a well-kept, quiet neighborhood, and within walking distance to downtown! You can't go wrong with this property. And Mark is a pleasure to work with.
