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 Twin Palms
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.

Beautifully preserved mid century home in a quiet neighborhood with great access to PS
Very comfortable home, lots of space, great location, well equipped kitchen, great pool. The Ray Bradbury connection added to the overall experience. We had a great stay.
Spacious, quiet, private, comfortable and perfectly located. What more can I say?
The property was awesome.
My wife and I stayed at the former Bradbury home for a month and we loved it. The house was very comfortable and the pool was great. We only used the fire pit a couple of times but it worked great. The property is close to everything and the neighborhood is great for walking. The fenced yard was great for our 2 small dogs. Steve was excellent to work with. There was a small mix-up on the check-out time but everything worked out fine. We enjoyed the home very much and we hope we can stay there again the next time we are in Palm Springs.
An amazing mid-century weekend
We absolutely loved the Bradbury house. It was everything we expected and more. What I appreciate about this house is that there is a comfortable, well worn in feeling to the house, unlike the nouveau mid-century stiffness you get in many Palm Springs rentals. We rented for a work retreat and were incredibly productive. The only minor thing missing from the house is a good record player or sound system, but were easily able to resolve this by streaming from our phones. The lighting, the decor, the countless seating options and vignettes, and all other design aspects are so well thought out, many original to the era, which we enjoyed. Learning more about Ray Bradbury was also very fascinating. Would we stay here again? You bet!
Beautiful, spacious home, impeccably decorated and cared for. Hope to be back soon!
Perfect Get Away
The house as impeccable, beautifully decorated and fully amenitied. We spent 3 days by the pool and found everything we needed. Easy location for access to grocery, restaurants and night life. Rooms were all very comfortable and the owners were super nice and easy to work with. Will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for your stay and hope to have you back very soon.
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.
