About John Goins & Robert Broecker

In 2004, some friends let us stay in their Palm Springs house for a long weekend. We fell in love with the city and the area! Now we have our own place and we want to share the Palm Springs experience with others. Our spirit soars every time we come to town! We hope yours will too.

John Goins & Robert Broecker purchased this house in 2012

Why John Goins & Robert Broecker chose Ruth Hardy Park

The view rocks! So does the location. We enjoy sunning by the pool, taking in the view of the mountains. We can ride bikes to the grocery store or Koffi or take a long walk through the neighborhood to the Art District. Look for the Big Dipper right above you when lounging by the pool at night.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the Chrysalis-style. We wanted the house to have that Palm Springs vibe and we still get excited whenever we arrive. It's the perfect get-away: comfortable, stylish and care-free.

There is a secret compartment at Chrysalis. See if you can find it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great home this is! We spent an extended weekend here to celebrate our friends' 25th wedding anniversary, and what a treat this home was! The mid-century modern design is impeccable - offering all of the amenities of home...and then some! The comfort in the beds rival some of the top hotels and no detail was spared - including plenty of towels and lush robes to keep us warm when we got out of the beautiful pool. This home is a must visit - I certainly look forward to visiting again! Cheers guys on a great PS home!

Excellent Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family spring break vacation at Chrysalis. When we arrived, the house was clean and lived up to the standards set by the pictures online. We had three adults and three children and the house had enough space for all of us. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed to prepare basic meals as well as some extras. The kids enjoyed the snow cone maker! All three bedrooms were very comfortable. The outside area was out favorite part of the house. The pool and hot tub were absolutely perfect for us. The heats and jets made it possible for us to swim all day long despite it being a little windy and chilly outside. The house is centrally located to several Palm Springs attractions. We had a great time and will definitely be back!

Palm Springs Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

As property owners that also have a home on Homeaway in Provincetown MA, we have expectations when we rent and this home exceeded those. The feeling is comfortable and the salt water pool is heaven. The views are awesome and love the location. If you go to Palm Springs and want to experience it fully, this is the home to stay in.

Thank you for your kind hospitality.

Great property - well maintained in every respect! And our "hosts", Robert and John were fantastic - friendly and responsive in every way.

We would definitely return to the property and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at Chrysalis. The accommodations were beautiful and well stocked with every thing we needed. It's conveniently located, close to everything. Market, Casino, Shops and restaurants within 5 minutes from the house and beautifully decorated..The day prior to our arrival there was a storm that made of the pool a mess. Robert and John addressed the issue immediately and we had the pool guy coming to clean it. It needed more the one time so we ended doing it ourselves...No problem.

It's the perfect little place to relax and enjoy all what Palm Springs is about!

Thank you!


Note: Window shades in the bathrooms would've been great, as we had a crew from the cable company working in the backyard so we couldn't take showers until they left :) :(

From Wikipedia: 'The Movie Colony is just east of Palm Canyon Drive. The Movie Colony East neighborhood extends east from the Ruth Hardy Park. These areas started growing in the 1930s as Hollywood movie stars built their smaller getaways from their Los Angeles area estates. Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Estee Lauder, and Bing Crosby built homes in these neighborhoods.'
