Tahquitz River Estates Studio Rental Photos and Description

Palm Springs, California

Leave your worries behind and come escape to this alluring Palm Springs vacation rental studio apartment #6, situated within the stunning mid-century Desert Star structure. This deluxe unit is one of 5 artfully appointed studio apartments encircled around a glittering, resplendent saltwater pool, perfectly located mere 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. Available to rent by itself or together with the other studios on the premises, this adults-only property is perfect for travelers seeking an intimate, relaxing experience surrounded by towering palm trees and mesmerizing mountain views!

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. 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

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...
