Why the gushing reviews? For starters, there’s the dreamy pool/hot-tub & fire pit front yard area with amazing close-up mountain views. Then, there’s that incredible decor both inside and out highlighting only the best of mid-century furniture and plain-air art collection. Surely, the ideal location in South Palm Springs, has something to do with it, too; the home is tucked between Deepwell and Warm Sands, putting you just a short walk or drive from , the downtown galleries, shops and Palm Springs restaurants. Finally, there are the sumptuous en-suite bedrooms, private and serene garden patio areas (8 in total!) guaranteeing that however you spend your Palm Springs days, your nights will be spent in pure star-gazing luxury. A true tranquil escape from the outside world.
This home is described as an idyllic home away from home, where it's in the top vacation rentals in Palm Springs, it's the winner of a Certificate of Excellence, and nearly 100% of its 50+ reviews are five-star. Guests wistfully recall afternoons cruising on complimentary bikes, lounging afternoons away at the pool or admiring the lovely and verdant gardens and 8 private patios. If you want to step into the spotlight, of course, you’re walking distance from town. But why would you leave, when the living’s so easy?
Newly remodeled (in 2015) 7 foot deep pool/ HOT TUB and FIRE-PIT adding to the already amazing house, gardens and patios offering magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. NO ELECTRICAL WIRES. NO AIRPORT NOISE.
You'd be forgiven for spending your whole time here in a lazy haze. Start your day w/ coffee out by the pool before a stroll through the gardens to find a secluded spot. If that sounds a bit too chilled out, head downtown to eat, shop, gamble or explore. There are plenty of ways to while away the sun-soaked hours at this heavenly hideaway.
The perfect place to de-compresse from the everyday world. You’ll wonder whether this home grew out of the same seeds that sprouted the surrounding tranquil and verdent gardens.

60+ VRBO Reviews!
Six of us stayed at this property for four nights, and we were totally happy with our stay. The house is beautiful and has all the amenities one could possibly want; I have rarely if ever stayed in such a well-appointed VRBO accommodation. The owner was extremely helpful, and answered all questions promptly. We loved the pool and hot tub, beautiful landscaping, comfortable furnishings, cleanliness, and location. We would definitely recommend this property and would certainly stay here again.
Loved our stay in this great property in Palm Springs! Centrally located so close to everything; very private yard with pool and spa; clean; great floor plan; well appointed. Tom, the owner, sent us recommendations for restaurants before we arrived. He was out of town when we arrived so his property manager, also named Tom, met us to make sure we got in the house okay and that everything was okay. Tom even checked to make sure everything was okay during our stay. We have a pool and spa at our own home that we hardly every use; but used Tom's spa everyday. Loved the firepit! You cannot go wrong booking this property. We are going to check out Tom's other vacation rentals.
This place is truly awesome! We loved all of the outdoor patios and places to relax. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a gas BBQ. Our ONLY place in Palm Springs!
The home is really great. Everything we needed was available and Tom was very responsive. Great pool, hot-tub, fire-pit! Beautiful Gardens! The property is well kept and it has everything you need for a wonderful stay in Palm Springs, CA.
The location of Tom’s house is perfect, the downtown area of shops and restaurants is minutes away, and we walk to the Lykken Trail for hiking and around the peaceful neighborhood in the evenings. My family finds it hard to leave the secluded compound of beautiful gardens, private sitting areas, and of course the pool, hot tub, and fire pit. We will be back!
