About David McBride

I have been vacationing in Palm Springs since 1995 and have totally fallen in love with the vibe and beauty of this desert oasis. I was SO fortunate to find this incredible home last fall and have taken much time to create a truly fun and festive environment for my guests. The stunning grounds and the unique original 21 foot diameter round pool make the atmosphere vintage and hip while comfortable with all of the conveniences you'll need to experience a terrific Palm Springs Holiday!

David McBride purchased this house in 2012

Why David McBride chose Sunmor

The original Alexander Construction Company 1958 gem maintains its classic feel while updated to include all of the amenities you would expect for a Palm Springs getaway. The open floor plan and bright and sunny environment creates a truly fun and upbeat space for entertaining or unwinding after a fun day of sun, hiking or golf. The Central location is great for easy access to shopping night life and everything you could possibly want to make your stay memorable.

What makes this house unique

You and your guests will enjoy flat screen televisions (including DVD player) in every bedroom, wireless internet and access to printer, telephone and an inside washer dryer. We've worked to provide everything you'll need and we're sure you will LOVE this home as much as we do and we hope you'll make Palm Springs Holiday your stop over and over again in the years to come!

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our ladies' getaway! It was very clean, updated, and conveniently located near the airport. The outdoor area was perfect for lounging around the pool in the mornings before heading out for the day then gathering around the fire pit at night when we returned. Don't miss Joshua Tree National Park!

The home is exactly as described. Beautiful ‘Palm Springs’ feel.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home close to downtown. The backyard is gorgeous and pool was heated to a good temperature even when it was a bit chilly outside.

Fire pit easy to use and a great way to end the evening. We found everything was just as described and there were no surprises.

We would recommend this property.

Long Weekend Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't not have chosen a more perfect home-base for our recent Palm Springs getaway. This property offered all we needed and more. The pool. BBQ and firepot provided the luxury of backyard relaxing and dining, while the location lent itself to easy access to downtown activities. We plan to be return!
