About Mod Pod Rentals

I'm an interior designer, living and working in Los Angeles. I have owned vacation rental properties for the last 12 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 2015

Why Mod Pod Rentals chose Desert Hot Springs

I created the concept of mid century inspired mini homes because, after all, they are so close to Palm Springs! I have always loved the style from the 40's-60's and am having a blast designing these fun spaces for my guests to stay in. I make sure that they not only feel great to be in, but are also comfortable and well equipped.

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.

The tiny house was perfect for two people and we thoroughly enjoyed all the hot spring pools and hot tubs on site. It was situated in the perfect location for seeing all the sights in Palm Springs and desert hot springs. .Particularly loved sitting on the porch for our morning coffee and evening cocktails.

                                                                    Quiet retreat with all the amenities

                                                                    This is a quiet community of vacationers and permanent residents in a very remote mobile home & RV resort just 20-30 minutes from downtown Palm Springs, Joshua Tree National Park and Coachella. 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. There is fantastic thrifting, vintage shopping, outlet shopping and casinos. The nearest convenience store is 7 min. away, the nearest grocery store is a 15 min. drive to Desert Hot Springs town. Everything within the resort is walkable, including one clubhouse which is a 2 minute walk from the unit. A car is recommended for outside of the resort.
