Please inquire for pricing of other units or compound as a whole. All prices are plus cleaning fee and 11.5% city tax unless staying 28 days or more, then no tax added.

**For Coachella weekends, the property is available as a whole only. We can accommodate 8 people for the Coachella events**

Our goal at that Cottonwood is to create a relaxed, comfortable, unhurried atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy the sun, and peaceful beauty of Palm Springs and the desert. We found a small, overlooked mid century apartment building and transformed it into a private, peaceful, stylish vacation rental property.

We are located at the north end of the El Mirador neighborhood in central Palm Springs, just a short walk or bike ride to the famed Movie Colony and Old Las Palmas neighborhoods; home to the Hollywood stars of yesteryear and today. Downtown is approximately 1.5 miles or a 15-minute walk.

We have 4 units total: 2 one bedrooms with 600 square feet, living room, dining room, bedroom with king bed, full bath and full kitchen (no dishwasher); 2 studios with 300 square feet, bedroom with queen bed, bathroom with shower stall (no tub) and full kitchen (no living room or seating area in studio other than the kitchen dinette).

We pride ourselves on having a clean, modern, well thought out property. We have attempted to include amenities you might find at other more expensive locations, like free bikes for guest use, a heated pool, wi-fi throughout, wired Internet in all units and 42” flat screen smart televisions with satellite and Netflix in our larger units; 32” in the studios and in the bedrooms of the larger units. You’ll even find real artwork on the walls! All at an affordable price.

We have Culligan filtered water throughout at the tap. There are 2 free parking spaces for each unit, 8 total. Soaps, paper products and fully stocked kitchens with coffee makers, teakettles, microwave ovens, dishes and cookware as well as full size appliances are provided.

The air conditioning/heat and pool heater are turned on before you arrive so you can start the relation the moment you walk through the gate.

Additional kitchen items, like a blender and bean grinder, etc. are available for shared use in the storage shed. You’ll also find irons and ironing boards there.

All rooms open to the beautiful, heated kidney shaped swimming pool with spectacular mountain views. The large lot is desert landscaped and well lit at night. The entire property is privacy fenced with a locked gate in the front, creating a completely private oasis of Zen.

You won’t find a front desk at the Cottonwood. We are small, hands off sort of vacation experience. Management is close by and will quickly respond to any issue, we are just a text or a phone call away. We believe that you come to Palm Springs to relax, not be watched over by staff. We do visit almost daily to spruce up the pool and the exterior and to make sure that everything is great for your stay.

At this time the Cottonwood is an adult only, non-smoking, no pets allowed facility. Laundry facilities are available for all that stay longer than 4 days. When renting the entire complex, children are allowed by exception.

Rental Rules:

The following are required by city ordinance:

- Must be 25 years old to rent

- No outdoor amplified music 24 hours per day

- No more than 8 registered guests overnight

- No more than 10 people on property at anytime

- Total of 4 cars allowed at property

- Signatures of all registered guests required at check in

- No parties or events can be held at the home

- Trash must be kept in supplied receptacles out of public view

- Quiet time after 10 pm (no noise at all can be heard at the property line)

All potential guests must acknowledge and commit to the above requirements prior to acceptance of rental.

Upon check out, please make sure that all of your dishes have been placed in the dishwasher and start the dishwasher before leaving. Take all trash and recycling out to the cans provided. There is no need to strip beds but if you want to start a load of towels, it is always appreciated! If you do wish to wash towels, please wash colors and whites separately. When you are ready to leave, just text us and we'll stop by to lock up.

Palm Springs takes a lot of interest in vacation homes and has an ordinance that prohibits amplification of outdoor music. This ordinance also limits the number of people that can be on the property both overnight and in the daytime. This property has an occupancy limit of 8 persons overnight and is allowed 10 persons during the day. Trash and recycling must remain in the proper receptacle as provided. If you have additional trash, please let us know and we can advise on proper disposal. These rules help to keep a peaceful balance between our guests and full time residents (both of which we hold in high regard). We try to stay on good terms with all the neighbors and have come to realize that a little respect goes a long way. Everyone's peaceful enjoyment is important to us. So please enjoy yourselves while being mindful of the others around you.

About Jeffery Anderson

Professional individual owner with multiple units, experienced in management and taking care of you. Managed locally by Jeffery Anderson of HOST Pal Springs.

Jeffery Anderson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jeffery Anderson chose Palm Springs

If you like mid-century design then you will love this private, well located and affordable oasis. We personally manage the property rather than having a management company. This allows us to provide a higher quality, more personable level of guest service.

The deluxe units are perfect for those in need of some space to spread out, especially for long stays.

The studio units are perfect for single travelers, couples that are comfortable in smaller spaces, and active travelers that don't intend to spend too much time inside the unit.

What makes this apartment unique

Walk from you unit and take 10 steps and enjoy a nice clean, heated pool and desert garden. Fully enclosed, private property. Beautiful mountain views from the pool. Fully remodeled. Gas grill for outdoor cooking, and 4 bikes (cruisers) are provided for our guests enjoyment.

Great location and space to explore Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the two larger units. It had a kitchen, living room bedroom and washroom. Good bed, great space, clean and well maintained. Pool outside the door was an extra treat. A great place to stay if you don't want your standard hotel room.

Only thing to do better. Fix the cutlery drawer so it closes without jamming.

Quiet Vacation Rental in Northern part of Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice 4 unit property in the northern part of Palm Springs. Very secure, very nice pool area. We stayed in Unit 1 which was the 1 Bedroom unit, had a very comfortable bedroom and living room. We loved the pool area...lots of areas to sun. Jeffrey could not have been nicer and was very responsive when we had a question during our stay. I highly recommend this place and would come back.

It was so nice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jefferys lovely complex for one week in February and it made our first trip to Palm Springs so enjoyable. The description was just as stated, if not better, and so clean, tidy and very well maintained. The property was in a good location and the bikes were so fun to use...very thoughtful! We had the pleasure of meeting Jeffery who was very friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. Definitely want to return for a second visit and will book here again! Thankyou so much Jeffery for providing such a nice relaxing place!

What a Gem

  • 5 of 5

What a great place - perfect location, great value, very clean, quite and all the amenities you could ask for. The studio unit was tastefully decorated and nice desert landscaping around the pool. If I am back in Palm Springs I would definitely return to this place or recommend to my friends.
