About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The City Of Palm Springs ID# 1454

Canyon View is the former Palm Springs residence of musician Don Tosti. Honored with a star on Palm Spring's Walk of Fame, Tosti forged a career spanning several decades and styles, from classical to jazz and rhythm and blues. He is best remembered for his big band-style compositions like the hit 'Pachuco Boogie'. Recorded in 1948, it was the first million-selling Latin song.

The house is conveniently situated just south of the village, in a tranquil neighborhood of Old Palm Springs homes and estates built in the 1930s and 1940s. Within walking distance are are many popular shops and restaurants including Koffi, El Mirasol, Davey's Hideaway and King's Highway. The property boasts expansive views of the south canyon and the peak of Mount San Jacinto, one of the tallest in Southern California.

The interior features an open plan with ample-sized rooms and high pitched, wooden planked ceilings. The floors are tiled throughout and finished with natural fiber floor coverings. Each room is appointed with a comfortable and stylish mix of original artwork, one-of-a-kind period collectables, and modern classic furnishings from the likes of Le Corbusier, George Nelson, Dorothy Draper, Harry Bertoia, and Ray and Charles Eames.

A large great room with a stone hearth and ten foot dining table opens through French doors onto the pool terrace surrounded by ficus, olive and palm trees. With a corner exposure facing east, south and west, the pool area is bathed in a warm glow and mountain views from dawn until dusk. The great room adjoins to the kitchen on one side and family room on the other. The kitchen is equipped for a serious cook, and invites gathering at the granite-topped bar and light-filled dining nook. The family room is anchored by a massive masonry fireplace and 52 inch flat screen HDTV. It opens onto a verdant and shaded rear patio with a gas grill and outdoor fireplace.

Three of the four bedrooms are located in the west wing. They all feature king size beds. The master suite is well proportioned with a large walk in closet and tiled bathroom with stall shower. The remaining two bedrooms in the wing share a hall bath with stall shower and separate tub. The fourth bedroom, tucked into the eastern corner of the house, has a queen bed and shared bathroom with stall shower.

Amazing Palm Springs Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Canyon View Artist's Retreat for a ladies weekend among friends. We loved the house and its open floor plan and beautiful outdoor space. The living areas were equally comfortable and spacious but admittedly we spent most of our time outside. The heated pool and jacuzzi were perfect and there were ample lounge chairs to use. The backyard offered a good mix of direct sunlight and shaded areas to enjoy. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the 3 kings & 1 queen made it very comfortable for all of us. The home is within walking distance to the ACE Hotel and a short Uber or Lyft ride to downtown Palm Springs. Nick and Alex at 360Rentals were great to work with and made accessing the home quick and easy. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for an amazing Palm Springs retreat and I can't wait to come back!

Wonderfully spacious house for a group

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here for the weekend with a group of girlfriends. It's a very stylishly decorated and spacious house. It's worn around the edges and could use some updating and a good deep clean but nothing that hindered our enjoyment. The gardens surrounding the house, the pool and the layout are just perfect for a fun group weekend we never felt like we were on top of each other. Kitchen is fully stocked (especially for a rental) so cooking was a breeze. It also is a great location, a quiet neighborhood just south of the main strip. Only reason not to give 5 stars was we arrived to find the oven not working which was a bummer as we had some meals planned based around baking but I reached out and the property manager Nick was very responsive and understanding and we were compensated.

Comforts Of Home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the Park House. The pool was nice and warm upon our arrival, the house was spotless and we were shown how everything worked upon check in. Downtown was a short drive from the house with great bars, restaurants and shopping. There was a spa in the back yard and we took full advantage of that every night. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet. Much needed relaxation overall.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in the artist retreat house. We have stayed at other homes in the Palm Springs area that are quite small, this however was just the opposite. There is plenty of room both inside and out so we weren't bumping into each other. Although we ended up spending most of our time by the pool. Wonderful mountain views as well. The booking process was a breeze and appreciated the personal touch of having someone meet us at the home, give us a tour and make us feel welcome. Unlike other homes that simply give you the keys and send you on your way. Thank you for everything. We can't wait to come again.
