This charming, 600-square foot poolside studio apartment will serve as your ultimate modern oasis, recently updated with beautiful new porcelain tile floors and adorned with many ornate features. Majestic 13-foot sloped ceilings provide a large vertical space and clerestory window in the unit’s living room area, while gorgeous Philippe Starck fixtures and Neutra tile from Italy make for a genuinely inviting retreat. The bathroom design boasts a wet room walk-in shower with 5-foot sliding glass door that opens out to the unit’s 200-square foot private back patio, where you can relish in Palm Springs’ balmy climate while admiring picturesque south-facing views. 

Prepare delectable meals in the studio’s new European-styled kitchen, which comes fully equipped with all the necessary culinary appliances to allow one to indulge in gourmet cooking. Unwind and stay entertained by watching your programming of choice on the living room’s LCD flat screen TV with Apple TV and free access to Netflix, Hulu and HBO go, or surf the web via the complimentary wireless internet access. Personalize the soundtrack of your vacation by playing your favorite music on the unit’s supplied iPod docking station. An original, operating accordion wall separates the living room area from the bedroom area, offering a handy way to divide the apartment when needed. At the end of the day, you’ll be happy to retire to the studio’s welcoming bedroom, furnished with a plush king-sized Case Study bed. The bedroom area also offers direct access to the unit’s impressive private back patio area through expansive 12-foot sliding doors. 

Look forward to spending lazy afternoons soaking up the gleaming desert sun while lounging next to the property’s crystal clear heated saltwater swimming pool, encompassed by towering palm trees and sensational mountain views. A captivating poolside gas fire pit and personal, custom sunshades further add to the enticing atmosphere. The 5 distinctive studio apartments at Desert Star surround 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 truly wonderful desert oasis here!

Conveniently situated 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A magical gem amongst a sea of overpriced, overcrowded Palm Springs hotels. Just came back from an incredible weekend at the Desert Star. Couldn't be happier. The amenities were stylish and very clean, the pool was incredible, and the hospitality was immaculate. Highly recommend if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend away from it all...

Wonderful time at the Desert Star

We had such a wonderful time at the Desert Star. Debra and Richard were so helpful and welcoming. It is a beautiful boutique hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Fun return to the best of 1960's!

  • 5 of 5

The clean design of this fun apartment is a great example of the best of the 1950's and '60's. My wife confirmed the furnishings and decor closely matched her new home in late 1950's Los Angeles. The unit was larger than we anticipated and the private patio was a nice alternative to the great pool in the courtyard. The property managers and other guests were all very friendly and nice. We look forward to returning in the future.

The fully equipped kitchen is very nice, and we enjoyed being able to have breakfast and coffee without having to go out. So much better than a hotel room!

My only cautions are that if you are interested in watching network television or have small children, this may not be a good choice. The TV is relatively small, and has access to Netflix, Hulu and other online services, but not cable and network channels. Great place to visit with a good book or to watch movies, but not sporting events. I would be reluctant to take a toddler to the apartment with the tile floor and glass coffee table, along with a short distance to the pool from the front door.

This is a great place for a couple looking for an escape from the everyday grind!

Efficient, practical, attractive accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is clean, modern, and minimalist, from the futon bed to the Japanese-style shower... a welcome respite from the clutter and stress of city life. We enjoyed a swim in the warm saltwater pool, even in January, and found the full kitchen nice for breakfast and snacks. One could certainly cook meals, and the sink is excellent for washing dishes, though the tools provided seem to be mainly for preparing drinks. The location is convenient to downtown Palm Springs for eating out as well. The manager lives on the property, and is responsive to requests.
