Incredible home within walking distance of downtown

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the butterfly home. Incredibly relaxing and fun. We decided not to rent a car during our stay and instead walk to most of the amazing nearby hot spots downtown and Uber when necessary. The house was very spacious and perfect to accommodate all 4 couples that joined this trip. We will definitely rebook this location when we come back! Michael (the owner) and Cara (his local helper) were incredibly responsive and accommodating! I highly recommend this place.

Beautiful home in the heart of Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group at Michael's house in Palm Springs for a long weekend. From the get-go, Michael and his team were super responsive to all questions that we had and our arrangements for getting into the house. The house itself was beautiful, with a full kitchen with any supply you would need to cook or grill. The pool and hot tub were perfect for lounging around, and the backyard is enclosed to give you the privacy you want on vacation.

Definitely would recommend staying in this house for your next group trip to Palm Springs.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! And to top it off, the house is gorgeous. Michael definitely set up the home for entertaining. We stayed the last weekend in September and had 6 friends come up for the weekend. Everyone enjoyed walking to the main part of town. The pool was wonderful. Had a great dinner party- the house is well stocked, as other reviewers have stated. Beautiful home- can't wait to visit again!

Perfect for Comapny Event

  • 5 of 5

We are a top women's fashion brand and we rented the Butterfly House for the week/weekend team event during Coachella and it could not have been more perfect. We hosted an intimate, sit-down dinner poolside and enjoyed the pool the following day with our team. The house, backyard and casita worked seamlessly, and the desert backdrop made for gorgeous photo ops.

In addition, the owner was more/less available 24/7 to answer any questions I had - everything from how to turn the pool and hot tub on/off, to "quick, do you have an extension cord?!" No matter how big or small my question, he was quick to respond and always helpful.

This house comes with the highest of recommendations and we are looking forward to coming back again!

First of all, my first review was taken down an I am not sure why as it did not contain any personal information...just a warning for future renters.

I have not received my deposit after almost 4 weeks! I am now contacting VRBO and finding out that when I was sent a contract, it was not through VRBO. After several emails back and forth through VRBO, the owner switched and was contacting me through his personal email. He recorded through VRBO that its was rented on different dates. I wonder how long he has been cheating renters and VRBO? Please be warned, although a beautiful home, the owner is dishonest.
