About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy sun-filled days and romantic nights under the stars in this sophisticated mid-century MOVIE COLONY area home. Walled and gated, this property embodies what the Palm Springs experience is all about.

Recently renovated and upgraded whilst still maintaining it's MID-CENTURY architecture, this approximately 2,000 sq. ft. home is exquisitely appointed and situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on 1/3 acre of park-like grounds. You will enjoy TOTAL PRIVACY and SERENITY and still have the convenience of being a short distance from downtown Palm Springs with it's restaurants, cafes and night life.

The large living area features WALLS OF GLASS and soaring ceilings bringing the outdoors in and capturing AMAZING VIEWS of majestic Mt. San Jacinto and the mesmerizing California desert landscape. Even the tiny light of the charming cable car as it makes its way to the top station over 8,000' above sea level, is visible at night due to the unique position of this property.

Soak up endless hours of sun in the state of the art, remote controlled SALT WATER POOL during the daytime. Then, dine under the stars with a marvelous secular olive tree enveloping you as the backdrop to a perfect romantic evening. One special amenity of this wonderful home is the IN WALL SOUND SYSTEM, a music lover's dream with a sound quality so unique you'll feel as though the artist playing is in the same room with you.

Besides the living room with over 24 feet of glass and breathtaking views, there is a media room where you can relax and enjoy your favorite DVDs and television programs. Another fun feature of the home is the upholstered 'cocktail niche', no home should be without one, where guests can unwind and contemplate the day's events or plan the evening ahead.

The two large bedrooms with CALIFORNIA KING sized beds and en-suite bathrooms are well separated ensuring guests' privacy. Each bedroom is equipped with the latest plasma TV/DVD player.

If you're looking for the true PALM SPRINGS EXPERIENCE, then look no further. 'A fabulous location, complete privacy, and a unique setting'...... book your reservation today, you'll be glad you did.

About Daria

The owner of this unique property is an internationally known designer of luxury glass lighting and accessories, all made on the famous island of Murano near Venice. The sophisticated low-key interior of this home reflects his many years living abroad and the house features numerous pieces from his exclusive collection.

Daria purchased this house in 1991

Why Daria chose Palm Springs

When I moved back to the States from Europe, I was not expecting to buy a home in Palm Springs. Friends in the Bay Area were doing their annual pilgrimage to the desert and asked me if I would like to join them, the rest is history. I fell in love with the vibrant California desert landscape and the charm of Palm Springs. I returned a few months later to begin a search for my desert getaway. I looked at property after property but nothing was speaking to my heart. Finally, from an ad in the newspaper, I found 'my hidden gem' here in the Movie Colony. It has a fabulous location at the end of a quiet dead-end street that is only one block long. You have a beautiful park for walks at your doorstep and all of the amenities of downtown Palm Springs a few minutes away. I love the privacy and vibe of this house, you can't help but relax here and get back in touch with the things in life that really matter.....

A relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely home. Our favorite area was the back yard with the spa, salt water pool and dinners under the olive tree. Great location close to downtown and the airport. Steve was a gracious host who ensured our stay was perfect. We ordered groceries and bikes to be delivered to the home and he graciously offered to receive the deliveries and have them ready for us when we arrived. We would highly recommend this home.

We enjoyed everything about this property. What a perfect and relaxing vacation! The backyard and pool is very secluded with wonderful views. The house is setup very well for 4 people and the beds very comfortable. This property is wonderful. We hope to be back someday soon.

For once, a truly comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Palm Springs for years and rented many different houses. None have been as comfortable and relaxing to to simply spend time. What do I mean? Most places have nice sleek furniture that is torturous to use or filthy. Stardust turned around my jaded point of view. Furniture is all comfortable for lounging with my reader or watching TV. The kitchen is quite accommodating and bathrooms spotless. The retained style from the original build is fun and warm and makes one feel at home. Bedrooms are especially nice with the black drapes and relaxing decor.

The location of the home is another plus. We enjoy walks and could be downtown in the heart of the action with a 20 minutes walk. That walkability alone is such a plus in a town so strongly oriented towards driving everywhere.

This house is exactly as advertised and I offer my recommendation without qualification. We will return to this house on our next trip.
