Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have chosen Palm Springs as the place for our annual mother/daughter retreat for the last 25 years and have returned to this wonderfully private and extremely comfortable Movie Colony home every year since 2009.

The home is beautifully furnished and decorated and the kitchen is very well equipped. We have especially enjoyed the Wolf range and Sub Zero refrigerator. The salt water pool, jacuzzi and fountain in the lushly landscaped yard are so inviting we spend much of our time there. A feature we really love is the wonderfully refreshing misting system around the covered patio. There is also a dining and lounging area on the patio which we use a great deal.

Thank you, Charlie and David, for paying such great attention to every detail in preparation for our visits and for your responsiveness to any needs we might have during our stay. It has always been apparent that our comfort and enjoyment of our vacation has been one of your main concerns. We are already looking forward to our next stay in 2016.

Beautiful house but...........

  • 3 of 5

Such a beautiful property, quiet upmarket area and very pleasant owners but sadly very tired, in need of decoration and not too clean. We found the kitchen counter tops and floors not up to the standard of cleaniness we expected, and very dusty furniture. Such a shame as it really is a stunning home, with lots of nice towels and plenty of kitchen equipment. Nice gardens and great pool, though sadly the pump had to be replaced during our visit and we were two days without a pool! Phew, too hot with no pool! I would love to see this gorgeous house decorated and totally cleaned.

Owner's Response: We are surprised with these comment. Our home is in excellent condition. As you can see from the other reviews, we have never had an issue with cleanliness of our home. We have many guests that are in love with our home the way it is and return year after year. Concerning the pool pump issue, we contacted our pool maintenance personnel and promptly replaced the pump, (those failures happen without our control). The pool could be used without the pump being in operation.

A great getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our hosts Charles and David was at the house to greet us and show us around. They stayed the night in their casita to make sure we were alright before leaving. We enjoyed our spacious house and the private back yard and pool. We especially loved the grapefruits from the tree every morning for breakfast. The house supplied everything we could have asked for. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks.

Relaxation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were greeted by the owners who were very gracious and had obviously gone out of their way to ensure the home was ready for us. What a great home and a great relaxing vacation. The pictures we had seen had not done this home justice. It was by far more than we expected and we are already planning our return! The swimming pool was perfect and the surrounding yard captivating. We rarely left the property other than to get supplies or walk downtown and in the surrounding movie colony which included Cary Grants Estate, Jack Benny's and others. The property was very private and the grounds were beautiful, we even picked grapefruit and lemons and made fresh juice. The kitchen had everything we needed and our bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable. We really enjoyed sitting under the veranda with the music,and powered misting system. The salt water pool and Jacuzzi were more than we could have hoped for. This was the perfect getaway that we needed and an awesome little piece of paradise. Definitely will be a repeat trip for us that we are calling home in the desert!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful extended stay at this Movie Colony house. The owners welcomed us in person upon arrival and were most accommodating at every turn. The house was clean, had all the necessary amenities and came with varied art pieces. The salt water pool and spa, patio, mature grounds and many citrus trees made the outdoors most enjoyable. The location is ideal and is close to downtown and favorite eateries. You can walk your dog or play tennis a few short blocks away at Ruth Hardy Park. The area is full of grand old homes and makes for interesting neighborhood walks.

Great property, very good location in movie colony and owners very accommodating.

We had a good time, walking around movie colony, walking and bike riding to Ruth Hardy Park and close to Palm Canyon, restaurants and stores.

House is fully equipped and we liked the pool and spa.

Nice grass and trees around property.

Also, allowed us to bring 2 small dogs.
