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 California Desert

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.

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!

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!

Perfect Palm Springs Mid-Century Experience

  • 5 of 5

I'd be surprised if there's a more delightful spot in Palm Springs. The Bradbury home is warm, original and authentic. If you enjoy the mid-century esthetic, you will love this home. Be forewarned staying here means a small trip back to the fifties - from the vintage kitchen to the original bathrooms - the home is unchanged. Located in Twin Palms, you're close enough to enjoy everything Palm Springs offers and far enough away to ensure privacy. We will visit the Bradbury home again. Thanks, Steve. We had a wonderful time.

Great Vacation Get Away and Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a friends birthday and the house is just beautiful. Nice and bright with lots of space and the pool is just perfect. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need and they even have a BBQ right off the kitchen for easy cooking. The location is close to shopping and downtown Palm Springs. We went for a great hike within walking distance. Steve is a great owner and super easy to work with. I highly recommend this vacation house.

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.
