Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for everything. We absolutely LOVE this house and can't wait to come back. It's the perfect retro but still luxurious hideaway. Great design, amazing pool and views- couldn't have been more perfect!

Fabulous Mid-Century Modern Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six loved staying at the Atomic Ranch. It is beautifully decorated, clean, and stocked with thoughtful extras (chic toiletries, Nespresso coffee & creamer, board games, interesting books). The owner, Clay, has thought of every detail and is very friendly and helpful. What makes this house so special is the yard. The yard is spacious, gorgeous, and very private, with lovely mountain views and a large heated pool. We spent most of our time by the pool, playing ping pong, and enjoying the perfect weather. This is a lovingly maintained, classic home in a quiet, classic neighborhood.

A well put together vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The Atomic Ranch delivered for our 3 day weekend in Palm Springs. We were very impressed with the decor, amenities and the excellent home sound system. Instructions upon arrival were very clear and concise (wifi password though was incorrect) and the house was clean. The yard was amazing for our 2 hounds who made the trip with us and with the very secure and private borders around the entire backyard, it was perfect for them.

We were attending a Parker wedding so the location was perfect for us, central to both The Parker and to Downtown Palm Springs.

The Master suite is wonderfully appointed and second bedroom is good also. The 3rd bedroom (was not relevant for our stay) is on the small side and the stereo whilst wonderful did take a few minutes to understand how to allocate volumes between the house and the outside (not a deterrent as it is an excellent system).

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews, but wanted to make a special effort for this property. I stayed there with 4 adults, 2 kids and a dog, and there was everything we needed and more. Plenty of room, bedding, towels, board games, pool accessories, kitchen goods and even condiments for cooking. The beds and bedding were amazing too. The property itself is stunning - quite like a resort, and if you are a fan of mid century architecture or decor, this is a must. Tasteful and never kitch, it's perfect. Highly recommend and will definitely be back again.
