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 Ruth Hardy Park

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.

                                                              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.

                                                              Great place!

                                                              A colleague and I stayed here for a conference and Nick and Andrea's home was a great place to get back to relax and unwind.

                                                              The pool and spa are incredible. The house is very comfortable and there is plenty of space. It has pretty much all of the amenities you could need for a few days or a few weeks. Great location, only a short Uber to Downtown, maybe a $6 ride each way. Would highly recommend!

                                                              Ideal Getaway

                                                              This is the second time I've rented Nick's house and it was every bit as great as I remembered it. You can't find better value for the money. This house has it all: amenities (great pool, spa, fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer), location, and tranquility with an unobstructed view of the mountain. Perfect!

                                                              Great property!

                                                              We stayed as a family at this property and found it to be a great vacation home. Beds and showers were comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked with super efficient washer and dryer.

                                                              Aside from a few communication issues with the Owner that were eventually resolved and minor annoyances like the lack of sufficient toilet paper (2 rolls for 7 people for 3 nights), the place was wonderful.

                                                              Well laid-out and equipped for a family to come enjoy all that Palm Springs has to offer. The hot tub was especially nice on a cold desert night.

                                                              Excellent Property with and Great Location in PS

                                                              We've stayed at this property a few times and it's always excellent. Would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Palm Springs. It has an excellent location in town and is close to downtown.

                                                              Great Pool and Jacuzzi

                                                              Perfect for cooling off on hot summer days, and relaxing into the evenings

                                                              Very quiet neighborhood- don't stay here if you want to make lots of noise the city ordinance is very strict
