About The Twist

The Twist is designed for the self-catering traveler looking for a change from the hotels, featuring 17 vacation rentals appointed in true Palm Springs modernism located in the Uptown Design District of the historic Old Las Palmas neighborhood. Surrounded by a spectacular Mountain setting within walking distance to shopping, dining and art galleries in central downtown, The Twist is perfect for individuals, groups and events. Everything from studios to a 2-bedroom with patios or balconies are fully furnished with colorful modern designs by local designers H3K. The Twist is managed full time by local representatives of Elevation Property Management. Elevation Property Management is based out of San Francisco, CA.

Why The Twist chose Palm Springs

Similar to all the homes in the neighborhood, this building has an illustrious past. Each home has a connection to a past or present celebrity; whether it be Johnny Weissmuller, Liz Taylor, Madonna…

Via Lola started as a whiskey stash for Al Capone in its cavernous basement during Prohibition. Later, Don the Beachcomber opened his famous restaurant and the Rat Pack became permanent fixtures at the bar, lounge and pool.

Chic retro perfection

  • 5 of 5

Refreshing decor, great change from hotels. Everything from facilities to context was as described and presented. We called Dee Dee for a minor question and she responded immediately. The two identical bedrooms and bathrooms, located at opposite ends of the unit, suited our small family group perfectly. A desert oasis -- I would definitely return.

Super fun, great location! Reservation #4939119

  • 5 of 5

I stumbled upon The Twist, while looking for a cool new place to surprise my fiancé with for a weekend away. Found the right place FOR SURE. The room was exactly how it was described. Super fun and modern, my fiancé was beyond excited. The location is perfect too, right off the main drag, and walkable to everywhere downtown. Killer Tiki bar and coffee shop right around the corner. Putting green, bikes to rent, really clean and mellow pool area. We had an amazing time and will definitely be coming back, and telling everyone we know about this place!

Funky, Clean, Beautiful, AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

I happened upon this property during a random search on VRBO, and WOW, am I glad I found it!! It was exactly as described & shown in the pictures. Modern mixed with vintage decor, so awesome! My husband & I LOVED it! We enjoyed laying around the gorgeous, immaculately clean pool. Taking the cool orange cruiser bikes for a spin around town. Sitting on our little deck enjoying the spectacular view. And having everything within walking distance of where it's located. Cool bars, restaurants, shops etc... We will definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone we talk to!! And one last thing... Dee Dee, the manager, loved her!! She was so helpful & nice & took very good care of us and the building!! Amazing holiday!!

Not a good place for kids or a stay longer than a couple nights

  • 2 of 5

We made it clear in our reservation that our two grandkids (ages 6 and 8) would be spending time with us at The Twist. At no time were we told this complex wasn't appropriate for families. This complex includes long-term renters. It's an inappropriate mix of long term tenants and vacationers. We were playing in the pool around 1:00 pm our first day and playing like all families do- jumping in the water, laughing, etc. The manager informed us after 5 minutes that long-term renters had complained about the noise. The poor kids were frightened and felt they had done something wrong. From then on, we shushed our grandkids any time they as much as laughed while they visited us. On another occasion, FedEx knocked on our door asking where to leave a package for a tenant. We pointed them to a door that we thought was a manager apartment. Later, the manager informed us that a tenant had complained that we had sent FedEx to their door. It’s not really set up for a longer visit (we were there for 6 nights). We were provided just three towels, no cleaning supplies, and the kitchen really wasn’t equipped for cooking. The location is great, the studio really cute, but the worry of being monitored and patrolled made it a very up-tight visit. We will not return.

Mid-Century Modern with a Twist

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and the property were exactly as in the pictures. Funky, clean, and well-appointed. The pool was clean and warm. The location is fabulous, no car needed if you are not taking excursions out of Palm Springs proper. Ernest Coffee on the corner, Bootlegger Tiki Bar next door, you couldn't ask for more. Dee Dee; the onsite manager, was friendly and helpful. Our friends that were staying elsewhere were jealous. We will definitely stay here again!

Oh my, all I have to say is that The Twist is...simply amazing, amazing, amazing. When my husband and I arrived at this place, we felt like we were at home. Everything was as described, the pictures on the website is just how it is in person. Everything is so modern with a touch of old school things, which made it super unique. If I go back to Palms Springs, I will DEFINITELY stay at The Twist AGAIN, AGAIN, and AGAIN. The price is reasonable for what they provide, and it is by all the restaurants, markets, and everything you need! So I recommend this place to EVERYONE, because it is just that amazing.
