Plenty of patio furniture and an outdoor BBQ area provide the perfect setting for a day or evening of relaxation.

Why Terri Gault chose Palm Springs

After visiting Palm Springs for years, in 2012 we decided that we wanted to live here, be within 2 blocks of downtown, have great mountain views, a swimming pool, plenty of room for friends& family and a walled and gated home...we found just what we were looking for in this property, we hope all our guests enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

We love the 350+ days of sunshine and all that there is to do in Palm Springs. We enjoy the privacy and serenity this property offers and yet we are close enough to walk to restaurants, parks and Thursday Night Village Fest.

Ideal winter holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We found this lovely property suited all our needs. It was private and quiet but also close to markets, restaurants and shopping.We are going to miss the wonderful pool area, suppers on the patio and waking up to the stunning view from the master suite.

great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was set up perfect for what i was looking for. i flew into town and met some friends to have a sunny weekend in the desert. the pool was perfect without being heated, there were plenty of chairs and space to entertain outside. The inside was spread out and had great flow to the outside. The master bedroom was a bit dated, but in a great way with a glass brick tub.

All in all, i would definitely come back again!

Ideal spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. 8 of us were very comfortable in the 4 bdrm house; plenty of room if we wanted privacy, yet cozy enough to make us feel at home. Pool was perfect relief for the heat of the day and night. We were able to walk to several restaurants and the casino. Great location.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for Xmas/ NY to escape the chilly northern winter, family from the UK joined us as well and we enjoyed two weeks of sunshine and warm weather. The pool was great and provided much amusement for our kids and the house worked out great for what we needed. Location is brilliant - so close to restaurants, park & tennis courts was ideal. Beds comfortable and plenty of room for all. Only small feedback point is a better/ new BBQ would be good, the one provided isn't very good/doesn't heat up. Minor as kitchen amenities all worked fine. great house & nice vacation
