Originally purchased for family use.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home in Palm Desert. My friends and I loved how quiet and relaxing it was to stay there. The house was very spacious, immaculate and in a great location to beautiful shops and restaurants on El Paseo. It was so comfortable to just relax by the pool and have some downtime.











Tom and Barbara were a great help in helping with the arrangements. I would definitely stay at this wonderful, cared for property again and again.

Grapevine Home

  • 5 of 5

The home on Grapevine was a perfect setting for a girl's weekend. Not only did it feel homey, which, after staying the last 15 years at my parents place prior to them selling and it made the transition that much better, but the accommodation and the space was fantastic. We loved cooking in the kitchen, hanging out in the back with the pool and the table - enough room for us all to laugh, drink, hang out, relax - just a perfect place.....so much so, that we will be back there next year

Great place, as always

  • 5 of 5

Took our annual golf trip to Palm Desert and all 7 of us stayed in the house. It's perfect for us and the owners have done a great job preparing it and keeping it updated.

It's Like Your Own Desert Estate!

  • 5 of 5

Each time we stay at Grapevine, we enjoy it more. I think it's the most relaxing and user friendly home we've ever rented!

We had a bit of cooler, cloudier weather this time, but that just provided us with a different desert experience and made for some gorgeous pictures of the clouds over the surrounding mountains. We absolutely love morning coffee time on the patio, watching the hummingbirds flit from flower to flower. Can't tell you how many pictures we've taken of these shimmering little birds, hovering just a few feet in front of us! And the evenings are also enchanting on the patio, with the lighting on the surrounding trees and (sometimes) a full moon providing just the right atmosphere for dinner or desert.

The location is great, too....... pretty much centrally located to reach any of the nearby amenities within a few minutes.

Any time we've had any questions, they've been answered right away. This is a wonderfully managed property and we highly recommend it!

Awesome return visit to house in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house on Grapevine St was perfect for our needs, which is why we returned for a second trip. We easily slept our whole group between the four bedrooms (inc Casita). The house is very spacious and was well suited to get in and out of Palm Springs. The pool and backyard area are large and were great during the daytime and in the evenings. We look forward to returning in the future and working with the renter is always easy and straightforward!

Great Mom's Day Trip!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a great place to stay for our family's Mother's Day celebration and I had the good fortune to find Grapevine. The home exceeded my expectations in every way. It is spacious, well equipped and is in a beautiful neighborhood. Our kids and grandkids loved the pool and played games on the nice grassy area surrounding it. Having the casita was a big plus as we were able to put our baby granddaughter and her parents there so she did not disturb the rest of our family when she got up in the middle of the night. We really had an awesome time and area already talking about returning!
