Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


Secluded on a hard-to-find street in the heart of the swanky, old Twin Palms section of South Palm Springs, Casa Caliente smolders like a hot, pin-up '50s seductress. She won't need to look for company. Company will find her.

This super private setting offers high walls and hedges anchored with towering palm trees and lush hidden alcoves throughout, for the ultimate Palm Springs getaway experience.

Enter through a Zen-like courtyard and find yourself inside Casa Caliente's whimsical environment punctuated with nostalgic artwork and photography, period furnishings, and a very merry ambience. Walls of glass overlook a high, pergola-covered patio and over-sized pool just beyond, with plenty of chaise lounges in between to sit back and enjoy the good life.

Every inch of Casa Caliente was designed to be enjoyed. Tanning anyone? Exit the glass kitchen door for a little bronzing on the loungers next to the trickling pineapple fountain. The pool house, also overlooking the pool with floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, is a setting worth filming with some of our bygone Rat Packers, with wet bar, plush furnishings, a full bath, tons of space, and even a hidden office in the closet for workaholics.

Casa Caliente is less than a mile from Palm Springs' downtown strip! Drive or bike it to the Spa Resort & Casino, boutiques, museums, art galleries, great restaurants, day spas, coffee houses, ice cream and candy shops, bars, night clubs, Thursday’s “Village Fest,” and more!

Experience the quintessential Palm Springs experience at Casa Caliente, including:

Free internet and cable.

Private over-sized pool

Casa Caliente -Private and Hip Mid Century Twin Palms Retreat
average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Very nice and great for a long weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at casa caliente. All of the features of the house are as described. The neighborhood is charming and full of wonderful mid centure houses. And the location is excellent. And the pool- perfect and private.

The only feedback is that the house could use just a bit of tlc- the pool chairs could stand replacing, the landscaping could use a bit of attention with dead plants being removed, palm tree lights burned out, etc.

But overall the house is great and I would stay again. And with attention to the little details it would easily be five stars.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I'll make this quick and to the point. Amazing house. Stocked with everything (PLENTY of extra pillows, blankets, sheets, towels etc) kitchen came with everything. Comfortable and cozy with a private backyard. Stayed in all weekend only left downtown to eat at night. Not looking anywhere else when I want a weekend getaway in Palm Springs.

Great Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

It was great to arrive at this vacation rental with no surprises. The listing description and photos were accurate and the home is even better in person. The pool was amazing and the hardest part of being at this home was having to leave! What a terrific family stay, we will be back.

A WOW Factor.

  • 5 of 5

Wow, Casa Caliente was so enjoyable for my entire family. You cannot go wrong with this house. This house was equipped with everything. While we were there for an entire week we really didn't feel the need to leave to venture out on the town, this house was beyond our expectations. Although we did go into town in which it is not far for this house we would always come back to the house for a night swim. At night, the house completely lit up with beauty. All the bedrooms were spacious and decorated beautifully especially the master bedroom. The master bedroom was truly a beauty and large. The master shower was definitely a wow factor. I will recommend Casa Caliente to everyone. We will be back.

Gracious, Well-Located Desert Accomodations at a Great Price

  • 5 of 5

Casa Caliente is a charming little hideaway in the desert. If you're looking for a place that feels more like a cozy home than a sterile hotel, you've found it here. Set against a dramatic landscape of mountains and palm trees, this home is in a highly desirable neighborhood. The pool is sizable and gracious. There are plenty of options for indoor/outdoor dining, so we primarily stayed in the home and cooked and relaxed for the duration of our stay—just what we wanted! On just a couple of occasions, we ventured out, and found a couple of our favorite Palm Springs area places (the Ace Hotel and Koffi) within easy walking distance, even in the sweltering summer heat. Can't recommend this retreat highly enough: It's so pretty and comfortable for what is really a quite reasonable rate. Enjoy!

Great location and wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do justice to Casa Caliente. We had a wonderfully relaxing time there. Everything we could need was provided. The view was excellent, the home was perfectly situated, comfy, and beautiful. I would definitely stay here again!
