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!

Oasis in the desert

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous week we had in the desert. John and Roberts house was a perfect place for our family reunion. It was very well equipped for 7 of us. Loved that it was so close to town. Loved hanging out in the hot tub with coffee in the morning and a glass of wine at night with all the stars. Love Palm Springs!

It was a perfect house to hang out in.

Thank you for all your help.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Chrysalis with 6 other girlfriends for a weekend getaway in June 2015. We all agreed-it was great! The open kitchen/dining/living room was perfect; There was plenty of seating for us to all gather in one space. The decor was right in line with Palm Springs fun Mid-Century Modern vibe. We were a little surprised at first that the pool (where we spent most of our time) was in the front yard...but it didn't matter! The pretty trees around the perimeter kept it private. The location of this rental couldn't have been better either-great proximity to downtown, grocery shopping, everything you'd need for a great PS experience. The owners, John & Robert were extremely prompt in responding to emails and calls. The property manager, Mike, was helpful as well! Overall, a great place and we would absolutely consider coming back! 😁

Renter

  • 4 of 5

Great house in a wonderful neighborhood. Centrally located near downtown Palm Springs and other attractions. Home is well-apportioned with state of art electronics and comfortable bedrooms for up to 6 people and nicely decorated. Common areas are small. The pool was wonderful, but much smaller than pictured. If you plan to cook, bring your own knife. The knives were very dull.

Owner's Response: Karen: Thanks for your comments. We take all feedback from guests seriously. Please note that the knife block includes a sharpener. Please feel free to use this if you stay with us again. Cheers, --John

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chrysalis, from the hot tub with Margaritas in the evenings to swimming and sunning at the pool during the days. It is a lovely home, well maintained and exactly as pictured and described. We've been to Palm Springs area many times but this is the first time we've rented a house instead of staying in a hotel, and we will definitely rent this place again next time!

Three Cheers for Chrysalis!

  • 5 of 5

The warm welcome my Elite Cheer daughters and I enjoyed upon arrival set the tone for a lovely weekend. It was perfectly located for our needs and the home fit us all well. We loved the ultra-modern design and were comfortable and relaxed when there. It was a great place for the athletes to unwind and I could easily cook them nice meals in the state-of-the art kitchen. The cool pool was a hit! Thank you for making "Duel in the Desert" a great cheer event due to our perfect accommodations.

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.'
