About OnTheRock

We are a family of four who relocated from the Bay Area to Palm Springs in 2011 - although we have since moved to Orange County.

OnTheRock purchased this house in 2012

Why OnTheRock chose Palm Springs

Our first vacation rental (VRBO #347804) has done so well we decided we wanted to find a second one but larger. When we saw this property, we knew it would be a great vacation getaway. Its proximity to downtown plus being a private, gated abode just seemed perfect to us.

What makes this house unique

We just loved the great room design in the kitchen, dining, and living area and the proximity of the house to downtown. We also enjoying trading both houses for other homes worldwide.

Great house! Small pool!

  • 4 of 5

I am a regular at VRBO renting, we go every year for a ladies only getaway and I also arrange trips for another few groups. We found this house layout to be excellent with an open floor plan in living/kitchen/dining room. The kitchen was a bit sparse on pans/prep stuff and only had 4 coffee cups ( but lots of little demi cups for cappuccino). But it was workable so we didn't worry about it. The interior is gorgeous and well done. The kitchen is well located to the backyard and pool area. Outside furniture was nice...and bbq was great to have. Bed in the small room I stayed in were not great but passable.

The only thing I would say is the correspondence with the owner was poor. No response to emails/or inquiries at all. I finally tracked the owner down through his facebook page and called him, which finally got me results. M Since you do not pay through VRBO (which they heavily warn you not to do) but through another property management company, which is nowhere to be found in Palm Springs anywhere when checking to see if it was legit, it felt a bit sketchy to give credit card info for payment. But when I finally finally got a hold of David, he was great. It all worked out but I like a really clean deal when you are dealing with 4 digits. Maybe it was just bad timing and a one time situation.?

Owner's Response: Karen, Thanks for your comments. I will make sure we get some more coffee cups (as a coffee drinker I know it can be a pain)! As a family business with two kids, we are not always able to respond right away and on nights and weekends. I will change the conformation emails to make it easier for guests to reach us. I apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks, David

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to have my sister's low key relaxed bachelorette party. From the second we walked in, I knew it would a perfect place. The house had lots of space so no one felt on top of each other, but it was nice all being under one roof. We loved having the pool and being able to relax without sharing with hotel guests. The kitchen was perfect, we were able to enjoy home cooked meals and snacks. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. LOVED this place, we are already planning our next now annual girls weekend for later this year!

Spacious, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

This house provided a great environment for our family with lots of room, well-appointed kitchen and linens and, best of all, the heated pool and spa. Even in 40-degree evenings the kids swam and the adults enjoyed the spa. It was also dog-friendly, fenced and gated for safety. We will definitely go back.

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this property over the 2015 Thanksgiving holiday. The moment we walked into the house, we knew we had rented the right place for our holiday. We will be renting this house again.

On target, just as advertised, great stay.

  • 5 of 5

What can you say, a rental home that delivers exactly as advertised, you can't beat that! Not over-advertised to promise a palace, not a listing with 10 year old pictures when it was new and before the hundreds of parties took their toll.

This vacation home has everything you need for a basic stay, super clean, well kept, great communication from the owners/management.

They don't advertise a Rolex and deliver a Timex. They tell you upfront, the furnishings are nice and kept, but not to expect the Four Seasons. They filled the home with Ikea, and discount site furnishings. And they did it right. They make sure it's well maintained and clean.

The rooms are plenty big, the open living, cooking, and dining area is PERFECT for groups hanging out together. The pool, while not huge, is nice and gets some decent shade for those trips you take when the sun is blazing in the desert.

What would I change about the home? Stretching here. It could use an indoor sound system (and shoot for the moon and add an outdoor one too). The living room TV is kind of small, if you are in to vacationing with TV (we aren't).

Location is great, shopping and restaurants around the corner and the downtown hip district a short drive.

Thanks for a great rental!
