About John Goins & Robert Broecker

Twelve years ago, 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 Palm Springs

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!

Cute, clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

A group of us enjoyed a very comfortable and relaxing stay at Chrysalis, celebrating a birthday and also attending Coachella. The house accommodated 8 of us comfortably, and suited all of our needs, from kitchen amenities, washer/dryer, beds and sleeping areas, to an adorably manicured backyard for an extra bonus. The pool is a major highlight and we found ourselves having a hard time breaking away from it each day!

John and Robert were so nice to work with, very thorough in their instructions and 'things-to-know' about the house, and the whole process was extremely smooth and very low maintenance.

At just a mile or so away from downtown, we were a $6 Uber ride away from the Thursday night Farmer's Market on Palm Canyon, the excellent Rooster and the Pig restaurant (highly recommended) and all of the strip's shops, bars and eateries. We could also get around on the two bikes that were provided (but there were too many of us, so we decided not to use them).

Was very pleased with this property and my experience with John and Robert, and I highly recommend Chrysalis!

As advertised - a place to restore, renew & refresh

  • 5 of 5

Modern, centrally located and clean home with wonderful outdoor space and flow through the house. Backyard is great for grilling and eating, front yard is where you relax in the sun and enjoy the cool pool and comfortable Jacuzzi. Great access to the outdoors and enough privacy on a quiet street to feel like your isolated on your own oasis. Kitchen has great appliances, tons of indoor and outdoor plates and glasses, and there are three options on where to have meals. We had two adults and five teenagers and the space is big enough where we could all be together, or not. Owners communicate quickly and clearly. We would come back in a heartbeat.

What A Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house with one other couple, it was wonderful! The house was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was set up with everything that we could possible need. The pool and hot tub were great, and the view was a nice and unexpected bonus. We saw the mountains in the photos, but didn't realize how close they really were. It also was a good location, very close to stores and restaurants. We will stay here again!

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.'
