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.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My kids, parents, brother, and dog stayed here for a long weekend and it was perfect! The decor was modern and sleek, yet very comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved the pool area right off the main dining room and Master bedroom. Also, that front yard with grass was perfect for pick-up football games and letting the dog run. Location on a busy street but the gate was very secure and never heard much road noise while inside. Also close to downtown Palm Springs. Would definitely return!!

Perfect Quick Fam Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This darling home is great for a family w littles! Ample space, comfy beds, no dusty knock-knacks for kids to break, great pool and a spa that heats up in no time! The entire property is gated and very private. We will be back (and you should go too),

Very very nice!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location, layout of the home and super nice decorated . It is very close to everything else in Palm Springs . We we had a nice Bbq on Saturday and Sunday , everything worked but the only issue we had was that the Jacuzzi only heated but did not bubble or work the jets , not sure if it was on a timer and the street is very dark if you are arriving at night it is hard to see since there is no light on the address since it is gated. But I really recommend the home and appreciate the way they keep the home clean.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kinds words - we did have an issue with the spa that required the replacement of a valve. Thanks for the input on the number plate - I will look into an illuminated number sign. David

Perfect Home for Palm Springs getaway – Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

David and Tricia’s rental home provided a great stay for the 6 of us. We walked into a well-maintained yard and house and were happy to call it home during our stay. It was easy to get downtown with all of the shops and restaurants as well as close to many golf courses. The bikes in the garage were a nice added touch giving us a fun and easy way to get to the many local coffee shops nearby while the guys were golfing (follow the designated Palm Springs bike-path trails). This home provides comfortable beds with a TV in every room. The pool was a perfect size for us with plenty of lounge chairs and outdoor seating. Sun or shade could be found during the day so everyone could enjoy time outside. Luc was available to answer any questions and was great to work with. All around one of our best vacation experiences and we would definitely return to On the Rocks.

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!
