About Steve

We love exploring in the desert and hiking

We love the architecture and the history of the home. The house is modernism at it's best. Clean lines and walls of glass. It is very peaceful and quiet with views of the mountains and the house is extremely comfortable with quality beds and fine linens.

Steve purchased this house in 2011

Why Steve chose Palm Springs

We love the neighborhood. We can easily walk a couple of blocks to Kofi coffeshop or the trendy Ace Hotel. We can also walk to the smoke tree shopping area for great resturants-- the best Vegan Resturant in town. Also authentic Vietnamese Resturant and new pizza and pasta. Close to everything yet very quiet neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

One of the best things about our house is that it is so quiet. Three large bedrooms and three baths.

Lovely, spacious, comfortable home with great pool--and perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We were excited when friends (two different sets of friends) told us they had a great stay at the home where Ray Bradbury used to live. We finally got to experience the place ourselves and it was just about perfect. Very spacious, with three bedrooms, each with a lot of privacy. An inviting living/dining area overlooking the beautiful pool. Very well stocked kitchen--we cooked and barbecued when we felt like staying home. Very cool mid modern neighborhood, nicely located. A couple of blocks from the Ace Hotel, which has great food, and from Koffi, where the whole neighborhood congregates in the mornings. You can rent bikes and bike everywhere. We did without a car just fine (with some help from Uber). Only glitches were a) problems with the pool heater, which seems unreliable and b) no cable (in the middle of the playoffs). Steve said the previous guests had reported the cable problem, so we wished he'd taken care of it in time for our visit. I'm sure it's fixed by now, in any case. All in all, a fabulous weekend and we would definitely return.

Desert trip at the Ray Bradbury house.

  • 5 of 5

Best friend from high school lives in CA. We live on the east coast. Met with our him and wives for Desert trip concert, 3 nights of our generation rock and roll.

As they have three boys I found the Ray Bradbury house,it sleeps seven . For the first time in eleven years of they left the boys with friends so we had an adult weekend. Just four of us.

We loved the house. Like visiting a museum and staying. The pool was so relaxing as we needed to recharge prior to each nights concerts. We will always come back and stay at the Ray Bradbury house. Thank you Steve.

Worst Palms Springs Stay Ever!!

  • 1 of 5

We arrived to a very old home that was falling apart! I know it's shown as a 1950's gem, but for modern times it should be kept in better condition. Door knobs, faucets, fixtures were all not working properly.

BUGS, ROACHES, WORMS inside the house and pool!!! Entire house was filled with these un-invited guests. Disgusting!!!

A/C is old and not working properly. House had a bad moldy smell comming from carpet... the carpet is white and owner charged hundreds extra cleaning fee because we got few stains from juice. Also, owner will try to keep your deposited for any small issues that he can find.

Neighbor called police at 8:30pm 2 times because they said we made too much noise.

Overall this was the worst trip we had. I went back to Palm Springs the following week and stayed somewhere else which was much nicer so I can enjoy the time that I had lost at this horrible home. Why do you things it's soon cheap? You really get what you pay for!!! Choose a different home!

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and am very surprised by your review - especially since so many other guest have enjoyed Mid-Century character of the home. I also was very accommodating by waiving all fees after you cancelled your original reservation and rebooked for other dates. In addition, I was contacted by the City of Palm Springs Noise Complaint line - not once by twice with noise complaints after 10:00pm . If you're looking for a party house - please look elsewhere. The home is in a very peaceful neighborhood with respectful neighbors - some vacation rental and others full-time.

Great Place for Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay for a relaxing vacation. Quiet and spacious. There is a grill right outside the kitchen. The pool is wonderful to lay out in the sun or to stargaze at night. Also if you wake up early you can see a beautiful sunrise right outside the front door. You can also see San Jacinto off to the distance. There is a great coffee shop within walking distance. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms. All the rooms are well decorated. The kitchen has retro appliances which are a delight to cook with.

My favorite house in PS!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in a number of houses and hotels in Palm Springs and after booking this house twice for birthday weekends, it's still my favorite! Authentic mid-century style inside and out, a layout that's airy and quiet even with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, everything you need on hand, and what I can only describe as "good vibes." There are a few things that could use upkeep but considering the very reasonable price and relaxed-yet-sophisticated decor, it's the best rental you'll find in this area. Steve is a great, easy, and communicative host as well.

Truly A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Bradbury house for my boyfriend's 40th Birthday and had the most amazing weekend! The house has a great layout with three very private bedrooms all with attached or nearby bathrooms. The living room is spacious and cozy, the kitchen perfect with great vintage stove and oven. The grill is super convenient as it is right outside the kitchen door. The pool is a great size and beautifully landscaped with a fantastic fire pit nearby for the starry desert nights. The feel of the house is really special, it's beautifully decorated but you don't feel like you have to walk on eggshells, you immediately feel relaxed and at home. There was historic record rain and thunderstorms all day Saturday and it was so lovely watching the rain from the floor to ceiling windows in the cozy living room. To top it all off, Steve is super nice and easy to deal with. I just can't say enough good things about the experience. We all had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!

Map

Walking distance to shops and restaurants... including Koffi and the Ace Hotel. We love to go hiking up to the mountains and to the nearby Indian Palm Canyons.
