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

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.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

House is located about 4 miles from the downtown strip. Very convenient to stores and right around the corner from the airport. Contemporary modern furnishings, beds as ok but not extremely comfortable. The backyard was great and the neighborhood was quiet. Overall a very nice stay. Great customer service.

Just What We'd Hoped For!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place for our group of four ladies to gather for a week! We really appreciated the authentic mid-century decor' - very cheerful and fun. You could not ask for a better patio with the huge variety of seating and lounging areas around the pretty pool...all the while surrounded by palm trees and mountains! We found everything we needed in David's home. It was an easy location - close to most anything Palm Springs has to offer.

Comfortable, well equipped, perfect for our getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay for a long weekend. The house was comfortable, clean, light and bright, and well equipped. The yard is generous and beautifully maintained, and we enjoyed the pool at all times of day and night. Best of all, it is quiet, something we had been wondering about since it is close to the airport. Dwayne the on-site property manager couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Perfect home base for our Girl's Weekend in Palm Springs!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with David's home in a quiet neighborhood in Palm Springs. Check-in and check-out was seamless thanks to the house caretaker, Duane. The house was fully equipped with all the bare necessities. In addition there were plenty of towels, a nearly fully stocked pantry (with odds and ends left behind by other house guests, I'm sure) and all the kitchen appliances you could think of. We stayed in one night to make pizza at home and also ate all of our breakfasts at home so it was nice to all all of the kitchen essentials to make meal prep a breeze. And the pool - what a great pool! Thumbs up from all of us! I highly recommend this home for small groups and families.
