About the property

Palm Springs, California

Whether you’re seeking an invigorating weekend getaway or longer stay, this beautiful Palm Springs vacation rental studio apartment #2 will serve as your ultimate modern oasis! Situated within The Desert Star, a stunning mid-century structure containing 5 artfully appointed studio units all encircling a sparkling saltwater swimming pool, this adults-only property offers a wonderfully relaxing ambiance just minutes from the village of Palm Springs. The Desert Star is also conveniently a quick 2-minute walk away from the nearest Palm Springs BUZZ stop, the city's newest trolley service. Rent just one studio at a time for an intimate retreat, or rent all 5 units together!

This contemporary, 600-square foot poolside studio apartment has recently undergone a complete renovation, updated throughout with gorgeous new porcelain tile floors, all new stainless steel kitchen appliances and a totally remodeled bathroom, featuring an all new shower and vanity. You’ll immediately note the unit’s many unique features such as the kitchen bar, which has the original Boomerang pattern formica that was first designed by Brooks Stevens in 1950 and updated by Raymond Loewy in 1954. A brand new renovation gracefully brought the kitchen into the 21st century, fully equipped with all the essential culinary appliances and cooking tools.

Everything you need to feel as relaxed as possible during your stay is here, from air conditioning and complimentary wireless internet access to ironing equipment and an iPod docking station, so you can listen to your favorite tunes throughout your vacation. Stay entertained by watching your programming of choice on the LCD flat panel TV, complete with Apple TV and free access to Netflix, Hulu and HBOgo. You’re practically guaranteed a restful night’s sleep on the studio’s extremely comfortable king-sized Case Study bed. The bedroom area opens out to a lovely 200-square foot, south-facing back patio, accessible through stunning 12-foot sliding doors. This is a truly wonderful place to indulge and enjoy!

Look forward to spending leisurely afternoons lounging outside by the property’s crystal clear heated saltwater pool, surrounded by towering palm trees and impressive mountain views. An inviting poolside gas fire pit and personal, custom sunshades further add to the alluring atmosphere. The 5 distinctive studio apartments on the premises encompass the pool in the middle, offering an ideal environment for adults seeking pure relaxation. While each individual unit can comfortably sleep a maximum of 2 guests, multiple units can be rented together to accommodate larger groups. Regardless of your party size, you’ll discover a genuinely enticing desert oasis here!

Perfectly located close to great restaurants, exceptional shopping and entertaining nightlife, this fantastic studio will let you have the best of Palm Springs right at your fingertips. The Palm Springs BUZZ, the city’s new trolley service, just began operation and conveniently has a stop only a short 2-minute walk away from the property. This free trolley service operates Thursdays through Sundays from 11:00 am to 1:00 am.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Best place I have ever stayed, hands down. We stayed in apartment 6, it was absolutely perfect. The location is a short drive from downtown Palm Springs yet far enough away that it feels quiet and secluded. The pool is dreamy, and the apartments are all so beautifully designed that you will never want to leave. I really enjoyed having a full size refrigerator and kitchenette since we brought food with us, it truly felt like a home away from home. I almost didn't want to write this review and keep this place a secret... but now I am, and the entire experience was A++, we will definitely be back!

We loved the quiet, private space and the great design and function of this place. The private courtyard was a bonus.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The desert star was perfect. The property is pretty on point and depicted well in the photos. A few things I noticed that I hope are improved on by my next visit : the shower head was awful, walls could use a touch up and the cleaning crew needs to step up their game. The light switches were pretty gross and the bathrobes were not washed from the previous guest. Also, the bed sheets are really stained and the pillow cases are very yellowish from so many uses. Overall it was pleasant. Just hope it's cleaner next time.

Thank you,

Frances Briceno

PS Debra is rad!

  • 5 of 5

This place was an absolute gem - I think we totally lucked out when we found this apartment and it was available, especially when it seemed that every hotel in town was booked. Beautifully decorated, very private, in a quiet little complex - perfect for us! Everything we needed was right there, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. Thank you so much!
