About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bath, with Mountain Views (sleeps 8)!

Recently renovated 4 Bedroom Retreat! This home is located in the quiet community of Tahquitz River Estates in South Palm Springs and is convenient to everything!

Great mountain views from this 2,400 Square foot single level home. The house features a contemporary look inside with new furniture and artwork. The new, fully appointed kitchen includes a bar with four bar stools. The kitchen also opens to a casual eating area and a family room with a flat screen TV. The dining room, just off the kitchen, includes a full wet bar and a wine refrigerator. Just off of the dining room is the living room, which includes a large leather sectional couch for plenty of seating and a flat screen TV with Cable and Showtime, and DVD player. Between the living room and dining room sits a gas fireplace for those cooler cozy desert evenings. This is a perfect home for family gatherings, entertaining, or just some quiet time away from home!

There are two master suites, each having a King Size Bed, Flat Screen TV, and a bathroom. Both master suites open out to a large covered private patio in the back of the property. There are two other bedrooms, each containing a Queen Size Bed. One of these bedrooms opens directly out to the pool area via a sliding glass door.

The pool and raised hot tub are located in the front of this property and contain amazing mountain views! The pool was recently renovated to include a pebble tech finish and new glass tiles. The pool has also been recently converted to be a salt-water pool.

Located around the pool are six chaise lounges, three umbrellas, and a patio table which seats four. Additionally, next to the pool, and not far from the kitchen, is the large natural gas grill.

There is a large covered patio in the back of the property in a very private setting. Included in this area is a small wicker couch, matching chairs, and two lounge chairs for your peaceful enjoyment. Also, there is a large patio table, which seats six, just off of the dining room for your outdoor dining pleasure!

Our home sleeps 8 in the 4 beds. Additionally, we do have a queen size Aero Bed air mattress.

Please check-out our reviews. Cleanliness is of most importance to us, and you will immediately notice that upon your arrival!

Available for guests are two mountain bikes!

About Chris Cundari

We live and work in San Diego, but enjoy coming out to Palm Springs for long weekends of fun, sun, and relaxation!

Chris Cundari purchased this house in 2012

Why Chris Cundari chose Palm Springs

This property caught our interest due to its excellent location and size of the home. We are very close to downtown and can walk to restaurants and shops. The views of the mountains are incredible from this property. Additionally, this area of Palm Springs is one of the least windy areas to be in when the wind is blowing! The size of the property allows for large families and/or groups of friends to enjoy some time here in the desert.

What makes this house unique

Location Location Location.....and.....the layout of the home.

This home is within walking distance to downtown (approx 1 mile) and only a couple of blocks from Palm Canyon Drive where there are some shops and restaurants. Additionally, you can catch the new Palm Springs BUZZ (a free trolly to and from downtown) on Palm Canyon Drive very near our home ( ).

As you can read from our reviews, this home is spacious and allows families & groups of up to 8 to enjoy the house, pool area, and back private patio area without feeling cramped like some homes do.

A very comfortable house for our family of 6, with everything you could wish for in the kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location close to downtown,, grocery stores and easy access to attractions. A problem with the spa was addressed quickly. This house allows everyone space and togetherness and we really enjoyed rare time together. We found shampoo and kitchen supplies so do check before going to the grocery store! Thanks Chris.

Top Choice in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented at least 10 different houses over the years in Palm Springs, and this is my favorite. The house, the location, the amenities, and the owners are all first rate -- A+. We had 8 people -- three generations -- in the house for almost a week and we all agreed it was just perfect. Everything was easy and just worked for us. No brainer. Will definitely try to rent again in the near future.

Pictures do not do this Justice!

  • 5 of 5

What an Amazing home. Tucked in along the street, no one would ever know what a lil jewel is behind the bushes. Upon our arrival (2 day drive) we were welcomed with a heated pool and spa. Except for getting groceries, we (and I mean my 3 kids 9, 10, 12, my parents, and my husband and I never left the house. We could have stayed forever. So quiet, spacious, and every seat was comfy. From the back yard with the orange, lemon and grapefruit trees, to the front secluded pool area, the kitchen dining, the formal dining, the living room, the extra tv lounge area were welcoming. Once we sat down, we stay for hours wherever it was. The home had all the things one could want or need short of its own personal chef. The kids lived by the pool the entire week. LA Bites, the local food delivery, were great for those nights we were too lazy to cook. But when we did cook we had quality to do it with from the BBQ to the pots and pans. My only negative was completely on me as I couldn't figure the Oven out so it took my cupcakes a bit to get done. There were plenty of towel, blankets, pillows and the beds, oh my the beds, we slept fantastic every night. There was the perfect amount of space for my kids to hang out and far enough away that they didn't get on my parent's nerves. We loved loved loved our stay. If we ever go back to Palm Springs this would be only place I would consider for the one main fact that everyone felt "at home" ! A biggy when vacationing. Chris was tentative and wanted to make sure we had our needs taken care of. A perfect place and now one of my favorite places.

Terrific Palm Springs Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a wonderful and relaxing weekend here in October. This house is beautifully decorated, immaculate and in a very quiet neighborhood. The room sizes and closet spaces in this home are very generous and there is an overall spacious feel to the home. The pool/spa area, located in front of the house, was a perfect gathering place for our three generation family. The pool is pristine and refreshing and the mountain view is spectacular. We also loved the option of a patio behind the house that is away from the pool.

The owner, Chris, was extremely easy to work with and always answered emails in an extremely timely manner. Our family would highly recommend this home.
