About Mod Pod Rentals

Marilynn is an interior designer, living and working in Los Angeles. I often work with my sister who is a general contractor remodeling homes as, The Property Sisters. I have owned vacation rental properties for the last 11 years and love creating spaces for my guests to create lasting memories in.

I'm an avid DIY'er and crafter, have been a dancer my entire life, love my dogs and husband and LOVE to travel.

Mod Pod Rentals purchased this mobile home in 2014

Why Mod Pod Rentals chose Desert Hot Springs

Marilynn stayed here for a retreat and fell in love with the resort, and immediately had a vision of creating multiple mid century modern style mini Mod Pods to share with friends, family and guests. It's location is very remote, which adds to it's peace and tranquility. The magic of the desert's calming energy melts away stress.

What makes this mobile home unique

The peaceful surroundings of the desert, the nearby pond and the healing waters of the naturally heated mineral hot springs water all made Marilynn want to come back again and again.

Nice and clean. Enjoyed the location.

We enjoyed our stay. The Mod Pod was clean and just the right size. We liked the location too, clean pools, nice friendly people and a very safe location. Lots to see around the area. Management was great to deal with.

Great Place to Stay for Coachella!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here during Coachella, and we had a very relaxing time. The pod may be small, but it offers the necessary amenities as well as 2 pools and hot tubs! Our neighbors were very friendly and we felt very welcomed. Laura who booked our reservation, was prompt with communication and was very helpful with any questions that I had. I would definitely recommend ModPod to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in the Desert Hot Springs / Palm Springs area!

Ready to relax or be social

  • 4 of 5

Even though the Sky Valley Resort feels like it's in the middle of nowhere it's nicely situated if you want to relax, hike, golf, shop, explore the Coachella valley or take part in the many activities that the resort has to offer. My husband and I felt like the young ones in the park but everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The ModPod had everything we needed. It was clean. If you want a sunny deck it doesn't get much of sun but this is good when the days are scorchers. You definitely need a vehicle in this area.

Clean nice property.

Great resort for chill times. Great stay over all.

One thing to make sure of, if you come at the beginning or end of the month, make sure you get the gate code for both months.

Otherwise great stay!

The community consists of all ages, with a strong presence of 55 and over. You won't find a nicer group of people anywhere. It is 2 hours from Los Angeles or San Diego.
