Overview

Ruth Hardy Park House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5

ALTAMIRA was our primary vacation rental for 5 years - until we rented it to one tenant for a year. We took possession back and gave it a complete face lift. It has new carpet, paint, dishwasher, microwave, sofa, area rugs, beds, linens, etc. It is ready for YOU!

ALTAMIRA is a quarter of an acre on a 2 block stretch of one of the only streets in central Palm Springs WITHOUT power lines to block your views. The 16' x 32' foot long 7' deep pool and over-sized 8 person in ground Jacuzzi are just a few of the things to enjoy in complete privacy behind the block wall and 10 foot tall double ficus hedge.

The living room and dining room have floor to ceiling Southern exposure windows - with a large overhang for outdoor living. The large gourmet kitchen is completely stocked with everything you need to either cook meals or serve what you order in from one of the many delicious local restaurants.

The living room at ALTAMIRA has a 47" flatscreen smart tv with DVD player, master bedroom has a 40" flatscreen smart tv, and guest room has a 32" flatscreen smart tv. The entire home is wired with a sound system with different zones.

ALTAMIRA is walking distance to downtown - it's one mile from the center of downtown and less than a half of a mile from the Casino and convention center. ALTAMIRA is also 2 blocks from Ruth Hardy Park - offering grassy fields, children's playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, and outdoor bbq areas.

Grab your bathing suit, golf clubs, tennis racket and/or your favorite book - and come relax in luxury at ALTAMIRA...

About Altamira Vacation Rentals

I am a freelance architecture and interiors photographer from Seattle. I came to Palm Springs 18 years ago and fell in love with it. I have been running VRBO 212096 for a few years now. I recently put ALTAMIRA back together after a year long tenant left. The energy at ALTAMIRA is incomparable, and the indoor outdoor flow make for a guaranteed relaxing and soothing stay. I live in Los Angeles and I come out to Altamira as much as I possibly can... provided you don't have it reserved!

Why Altamira Vacation Rentals chose Palm Springs

I renovated and operated a vacation rental 2 blocks from ALTAMIRA and walked and rollerbladed by ALTAMIRA all the time... until one day I pulled tax records and sent the owner a request to sell it. He did, and we never looked back. I have lived in and renovated over 6 homes in this area, but have never let go of this very special home. Everyone who ever stays here wishes they never had to leave!

What makes this house unique

We have unobstructed views of the western San Jacinto Mountains - including the top of the tram that is lit up every night. The LARGE grassy yard with pool and spa are completely private and allow for nude sunbathing if you wish. The wireless internet works anywhere on the property - so you can take your laptop and cocktail out to the teak table and watch the sunset as you send emails to your friends. The same friends that wish they were sitting where you are!

LOVE THE ALTAMIRA HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented from James and Altamira in the past. I can't tell you how much we love this house. We spent 3 nights and loved the highly comfortable bedding and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. Some plastic wine glasses for around the pool would be nice, but hey, I'm being picky! James has impeccable taste in decorating his houses and this is no exception. I look forward to next year and renting again from Altamira. I know from other rentals before Altamira that you can't always trust the photos you see. With James and his houses I know that everything i see and how good it looks will always be the same when we arrive for our stay. Recommended highly and we'll be back twice next year!!

This house is very secluded and offers a wonderful private getaway. The beds were extremely comfortable and all amenities were available. We had an amazing stay and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the close proximity to the casino and restaurants.

Reviewer Comments:

Stayed here for a quick trip to oversee a remodel in the neighborhood. It was a lovely oasis in the 117 degree heat. With the air conditioning and ceiling fans we were quite comfortable. The pool and yard are lovely. We enjoyed looking at them from inside the cool house. Both beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed. I appreciate that the kitchen has many condiments and supplies. I will recommend this house to my overflow guests.

Reviewer Comments:

the home is wonderful, huge yard, unobstructed views of the mountains, great large pool, the living room is bright, airy with view of the outdoor area, cozy fireplace, the home was beautifully renovated. the only minor additions i would recommend: stronger wifi, can't pick it up outdoors, a couple of freestanding umbrellas for outside near the pool as there is no shade, the kitchen was missing any saran wrap or storage bags and some of the dishes were not completely cleaned that were in the cupboard.
