What makes this house unique

We love our Palm Springs Vacation home in Vista Las Palmas for so many reasons: only moments from downtown Palm Springs by car, or a short walk or bike ride, the amazing views like no where else in Palm Springs, the bright open rooms, the fantastic mid-century design and the huge pool and new spa, perfect for swimming or lounging. We have furnished the house with a cool mix of mid-century and modern pieces, to capture the unique Palm Springs experience. It is so convenient to be walking distance to downtown, with great restaurants, shops and bars, as well as 5 minutes from the aerial tramway and mountain canyons, with hiking, biking and sightseeing. We know you are going to love it too!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this incredible house! We rented this home the first weekend of November and were not disappointed. It is exactly as pictured and met my exceedingly high standards of cleanliness. We did not do any cooking but the kitchen appeared very well stocked, as was the rest of the house. We had plenty of bath and pool towels and beds were comfortable.

We loved spending afternoons by the pool and staying in such a beautiful neighborhood. Will definitely be booking again!!

Perfect for party of 4 year old granddaughter, parents and 2 grandparents who survived more time in the pool than they thought possible to fit into 6 days. Well equipped and stylish inside and lots of well positioned shady spots outside. It is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Palm Springs and within easy reach of restaurants and shops.

Quiet, relaxing and sufficient

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time with our son and his family at this property. The house was clean and fit our needs that we did’nt even have to go anywhere else. We were in the pool daily and enjoyed relaxing in the shade on the patio when it got too hot in the sun. Beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked. Bob, the concierge, met us on our arrival and was available when we had a few questions. Highly recommend for a quiet getaway... and the views of the mountains were amazing. Thanks for everything

Be Careful What You Wish For

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a true Mid Century Modern experience and this house fit the bill beautifully. The furnishings were so hip, so cool, and so uncomfortable. Now I am not blaming the homeowners for misleading us - everything was exactly as pictured in the listing. We were caught up in how beautiful this house was, I guess that we didn't think it through. Sitting in the ultra hip orange and chrome chairs was like sitting in a waiting room. The low couch was hard. The orange arm chair in the corner was more comfortable, but who wants to sit in a corner. And forget about a movie night - there was no way that the 4 of us could relax in front of the TV after a long day of seeing the sights of the Palm Springs area.

The outside seating area was more disappointing. The rattan furniture was heavily used with fraying edges and a big hole in the coffee table. The cushions were flat and hard. We were also disappointed that they only had a couple ratty swim noodles and a couple cracked and blistered foam pool floats for us to use. The concierge, Bob, said that they were left by past renters, so I guess you have to supply your own.

On a positive note, Bob was fantastic. he met us at the house to show us around. He gave us great tips on restaurants and things to do, and he was quick to respond with an issue we had with a faulty ceiling fan.

We had a few minor housekeeping issues - there were black hairs on the bedspreads, so not sure if they get laundered between visits, and an extremely dusty light fixture in the master bath. Other than that, the house seemed well maintained.

We found it kind of ironic that Palm Springs has such a strict noise policy (no outside music at all, at any time of the day) yet there seemed to be constant noise from leaf blowers and hedge trimmers in the area almost every time we were outside. I guess that is the price to pay for staying in such a well manicured neighborhood.

The mountain views were fantastic, and this house is truly beautiful, but we will choose someplace else with more comfort next time we visit Palm Springs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 4-star review of our home! We are happy that you found the house to be truly beautiful, and that you enjoyed the magnificent views. I agree that Bob is fantastic! We are sorry to hear that you had some minor issues. We genuinely want all of our guests to be 100% satisfied, but of course some things are subjective and it can be difficult to match a wide range of differing personal preferences. Most of our guests are repeat clients, and have commented often on what a comfortable stay that they have had, as is testified by the vast majority of 5-star reviews we have received. I myself use VRBO when I travel, and find it interesting when I read reviews for other properties saying, for example, that the bed was too firm for one person, but the same bed was too soft for another. Thank you also for mentioning that the house is well maintained. We pride ourselves on taking care of our home. I will definitely speak to our house keeper about your bedspread comment. I wish you had mentioned it in your message to me last week when you said how much you had enjoyed your stay, as we always try to respond immediately to guest feedback. Regarding the outdoor furniture, after your departure I was very distraught to see that the sun had literally melted a hole in the middle of the rattan coffee table! Palm Springs hit 120+ degrees multiple times this summer, and I’m afraid that it was not kind to our outdoor furniture. Fortunately, we have new furniture on order, which I hope won’t melt this time! Thank you again for your comments. We appreciate guest feedback so that we can continue to earn the 5-star ratings that have been given by the majority of our guests.

A peaceful Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time out in less than a month! We love the view of the mountains, the privacy of the backyard and the peacefulness of the neighborhood. The house feels light and airy and has everything you need to enjoy your time there. Russ is a considerate and gracious host and Bob, the house concierge, is very nice and responsive. Thanks to you both. If we could, we would live here full time!
