Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

TOT #4560

Luxury vacation home rental where its all about relaxing in the Palm Springs sunshine. Slip into the Pink Martini for a smooth and refreshing holiday. This 3100 sq foot mid-century home (circa 1965) has an oversized pool yard that feels like your own private resort. Tucked away on a quiet, residential, non-thru street near Ruth Hardy Park, this tempting hideaway has everything to accommodate large family gatherings or group getaways with friends.

The open concept floor plan includes a swank sunken living room, large well-stocked kitchen, dining room with table-seating for 10, and an additional conversational lounge area with vintage cocktail cart to serve up those ice-cold drinks. All along the back of the house are walls of glass that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living in true Palm Springs style. With four bedrooms (including two masters w en-suites) there's plenty of room to spread out or seek some alone time.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Your own private sanctuary. The angled placement of the house gives the property a fresh, untypical sweep of outdoor space, with stunning mountain views. There's sunshine in abundance but also--plenty of shade spots--allowing those with limited tolerance for the sun's rays to enjoy both the pool and yard during daytime. An abundance of trees include orange, tangerine, lime, fig and grapefruit--from which you can enjoy fresh fruits in season. A covered patio with large glass dining table and BBQ grill invite outdoor diners; and another seating area is perfect for cards, games or enjoying drinks. Two hammocks under the grove are perfect for snoozing or curling up with a good book. reading. The large pool (with deep and shallow ends) can be enjoyed by all, and the separate spa easily seats 6-8. You’ll find poolside chaise lounges, a large shade umbrella and spray misters for your comfort. Spectacular at dawn or sunset, you'll be wanting to take in the breathtaking views and desert breezes in this luscious oasis.

THE LIVING QUARTERS

A recently remodeled kitchen has ample space for busy cooks, with counter seating for watchers and nibblers. A full complement of appliances and cooking utensils are waiting for preparation of holiday meals or just serving snacks and beverages. A separate laundry room answers your cleaning needs. In the sunken living room, guests can enjoy a 55" HD TV and VCR, with premium cable channels and Netflix log-on. In home Wi-Fi is available throughout. A working fireplace awaits those rare cool nights in wintertime. Guests can choose from two master bedroom suites, located on opposite ends of the house, plus another two bedrooms--all unusually large by Palm Springs standards--with enormous closets, three-speed fans and quality linens. Each master suite contains its own 30" HD TV, and has direct access to the outside. In addition to the three king size beds, and one queen, there's plenty of extra room for the occasional overflow guest.

THE LOCATION

Driving is completely optional while staying at the Pink Martini - which is conveniently located in the always requested Movie Colony East neighborhood. You’ll be less than a mile from the world famous Palm Canyon Drive as it cuts through the hip and trendy Uptown Design District with its fine dining, coffee houses, night clubs, boutiques and art galleries. Ruth Hardy Park (featuring the lovely desert Wellness Walk and free Saturday morning Yoga) is just a quick half mile from your front door. The Convention Center, the Casino, and the Palm Springs Tram are all very close. And you’ll be in walking distance to a number of stops for The Buzz, the City’s free trolley service that whisks you up and down Palm Canyon Drive, Thursday through Sunday. Palm Springs also has a very reliable Uber network. So getting around town is easy, especially from this central location. Martinis or not, you'll feel in the pink.

OPTIONAL CONCIERGE SERVICES

Private chef, pre-arrival grocery stocking, daily and mid-stay maid service, and poolside massage can be arranged with three weeks advance notice.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was perfect for me and my friends. The outdoor space is amazing and the inside had everything we could hope for in a place to be all get together. The rate was competitive, the pool was perfect for a large group and the location is perfect. The ease of check in and management through the app is pretty great. We suggest including more cleaning products and a mop. We like to keep our place clean throughout the stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Wonderful house in a good location. Very open plan with roomy bedrooms. Very comfortable for up to 8 people. Nice back yard and pool with covered outdoor area. Only downside is the condition of the interior. The living room couches are showing their wear, and could use a professional cleaning. Same with the dining room chairs. The kitchen appliances are well worn as well, with several dents in the refrigerator door. The oven door did not stay closed, and the oven light was on the whole time of our stay. An Acme repair guy tried to fix the oven, but his fix did not last more than a day. Same with the a bathroom faucet handle. Several of the lights were without bulbs, and two faucets had issues with the water handles. There was a water leak around the base of the toilet in one bedroom. We had to repair the BBQ ourselves. The gas orafices were gummed up and restricted the flame. We cleaned those out in order to make it work properly. The blender was broken, and had to be replaced. The pool toys and rafts are in very bad shape...and should all be replaced. Several of the poolside lounges have broken cross supports underneath. The remote control for the outdoor lights and fans was erratic in it's operation (maybe needed new batteries. So.....bottomline: Great house and location, but many maintenance and upkeep issues that should be addressed.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location and easy walk to Palm Canyon. House very comfortable. Had to call the management company as not too happy with the outdoor furniture and they responded and brought new cushions the same day.

Honestly, if I were the owner I would invest a little in some new nicer outdoor furniture, it would make a vast difference to the lovely garden and pool. Overall very happy with the house and management company and I would go back there.

Reviewer Comments:

Took both sets of in-laws and kids over Christmas break. Lots of room in this house so not tripping over each other. Not the newest place, but we weren't expecting it to be. Great location - just a 5 minute walk from Ruth Hardy Park, which we went to almost every day with the kids. Overall a good pick.

Reviewer Comments:

GOOD - pre-arrival set-up w/Ken Hudnall

- location & bright open floorplan

- fruit trees & fenced yard

- Bedding/towels/kichen/bathrooms generally surface clean

- Basic kitchen dishes/pans/utensils

BAD - purchasing & installing new dishwasher 1/2 way thru our stay should have been done prior to our stay when house was vacant

- had to prop chair against oven door to keep closed/temps. way off in oven

- beds too low & sizes misrepresented

- dirty windows/dead plants in yard & "dirt" lawn

- lack of dressers & TVs in some bdrms

- ceiling fan/light remotes held together w/scotch tape/some only worked 1/2 time

-Many labeled/unlabeled light switches didn't work

- Broken closet door in 3rd bdrm

- Broken blinds & peeling paint & sticking drawers in 2nd master bed/bath

- partially open hose channel on patio is a tripping hazard

- Lack of baking sheets/pans/mixer/dish towels

UGLY - spa & pool need repair & maint.

- Dining room & patio chair cushions are filthy

- Open cracks in ceiling & baseboards & beat-up walls need repair

- Deep cleaning needed in general thruout especially for pet/genl allergy sufferers

- HATED unknown extra utilities charges & pool/spa filter running 16 hours a day - Why?

If deferred maintenance/repairs/deep cleaning are done we would return. If not, then no recommendation to go to this property from us. Give this place some Major TLC - it has great potential.
