About Nick Holm

We grew up in the same small town in rural Northeast Iowa. When we are not working, we enjoy anything outdoors, including, camping, boating, and hiking. Traveling has always been our passion, particularly the west coast. We fell in love with California the first time we visited. We especially loved the warm climate of Palm Springs. We also really fell in love with the architecture of the homes there and the rich history of this great town.

Nick Holm purchased this house in 2012

Why Nick Holm chose Palm Springs

We really enjoy the mid-century styling and history of these homes in Palm Springs. When we began looking at homes there that was our primary focus. We found this property and fell in love with its location. It's within close walking distance of downtown but is very quiet and relaxing at night and in the morning. It made for the perfect desert retreat for us.

What makes this house unique

We really loved the architecture of this house and the spectacular mountain views that it offers both from the patio area and also from the pool and spa. It was everything we wanted in a mid-century house in Palm Springs.

Cool Mid-Century Modern Home with Sparkling Pool

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we needed for a couples getaway. Six of us, all twenty-somethings, stayed in the house for two nights and loved every minute of it. It was the perfect size for our group. The pool was awesome and provided a nice shade during the hot sun. Loved having the grill too, and there was plenty of seating for all of us inside and out. Nick was responsive to our requests/questions and was awesome to work with. The only downfall was the jacuzzi heat - the new system wasn't allowing the spa to heat up. Luckily, it was so hot out that it didn't bother us too much--I think he is fixing it soon anyway :) Two thumbs up, would definitely stay here again.

It is even better than it looks...think calming relaxing and easy!

  • 5 of 5

Could not say enough good about home, owner and location. We were in need of nothing, from kitchen to bedrooms and bath everything you could think of was there, even some books if you finished the one you were working on lazily while sitting by the pool watching the colors of the mountains change. The beds and bedding lovely. Everyone was comfortable and slept great. We were there while the weather was warm/hot that was lovely for us, we enjoyed the dry heat. The house being in such a great neighborhood, safe and quite, I walked early in the morning and then again late in the evening under the stars met wonderful neighbors doing the same with their pets. It is truly a home away from home. I look forward to our next trip and would actually plan it around staying at this property again!

Great space indoor and out

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful escape to Palm Springs at Nicks house. Plenty of room for 6 of us and the outdoor space was magical with the pool, hot tub and view of the mountains. The kitchen was well equipped and the house was well-maintained. Nick was very attentive when we needed something or had a question. The wifi, tv and hot tub all worked great. Location near the airport, the mountains and the downtown strip area were all very convenient as well but yet we didn't hear any of that going on while we were sleeping. We had a very enjoyable stay in Palm Springs thanks in large part to this residence. We are sure to look for Nicks house again if we ever come back.

Great Property; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5-day stay at this mid-century beauty. The house is beautifully decorated in period and immaculately clean. Nick and Andrea were excellent hosts. They promptly provided all the information we needed for a smooth stay. We recommend it and hope to come again.

Relaxing and Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a long weekend away. We had the most relaxing and enjoyable stay. The pictures of the home are spot on and the location couldn't have been better. Nick is super easy to work with and if there are any issues, he is quick to answer questions or troubleshoot. Only minor comment is the check out time is a bit early at 10am, but that's not anything that would prohibit us from staying here again.

Thanks for a wonderful 40th birthday trip!
