About Phillip LeBlanc

Thanks for checking out our new gorgeous home! We are fortunate to have traveled extensively throughout the 20 years we've been together. Yet Palm Springs holds a very special place in our hearts. We love to come here to relax, to meet friends, and to enjoy all the amazing things this city and the Coachella valley have to offer.

Phillip LeBlanc purchased this estate in 2013

Why Phillip LeBlanc chose Palm Springs

After years of visiting and searching, we decided that this home is the perfect one. We can walk or bike to all the best restaurants, shops, galleries, festivals, and activities in downtown. But the moment we come home, everything seems to be miles away. Our home retains the classic mid-century style yet has been upgraded to accommodate the modern lifestyles. We are glad to share our home with you. We are confident that you will enjoy it as much as we do every time we come to visit.

What makes this estate unique

All the bathrooms and Chef's kitchen have been recently remodeled. Each bedroom as well as the living quarter is designed to have its own character and color scheme yet they are all cohesively faithful to the mid-century design. The spacious backyard has a large salt-water tiled pool with a brand new integrated spa. The property has been recently re-landscaped with fruit trees, cactus gardens, and 28 soaring palm trees. You will have a hard time deciding whether to stay indoors or outdoors. But don't worry, indoors or out, the views are all amazing.

Amazing house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Overall a fantastic experience and the perfect backdrop for our girls reunion weekend. Phillip was extremely helpful and always accessible. He was gracious enough to offer us a late checkout so we could spend more time together. The house was lovely and close to town. We barely left the premises because it was so relaxing and comfortable with a great pool and spa. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Amazing house and phenomenal host!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful in a gorgeous neighborhood. The whole house was decorated perfectly and extremely clean! The host allowed us to check in early which is very accommodating. The outdoor space with the pool and the entertaining areas were great! I accidentally left something behind at the house. We contacted the host and he responded extremely quickly and said he would ship it me to right away! It did not come, so I contacted the host again, and he followed up in a very timely manner. He generously offered me a $25 Macys gift card for the inconvenience. The host honestly went above and beyond to help. I will recommend this place to all my friends.

Beautiful Home With Everything You Could Ever Need

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin about the beautiful 28 Palms Oasis? The house is in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood that is right up against the most magical backdrop of rocky cliffs. Sunsets there are breathtaking as the sun creeps behind the mountain tops and can be seen perfectly from the backyard. The house is exquisite and accommodated every member of our large group that came to stay for my birthday weekend. With 5 bedrooms, each set of couples was able to get their own large room. Choosing between the master bedroom and the secluded Casita was a very tough call. But each room had its own charm and fitting accommodations.

There was plenty of space to lounge both outside in the pool and hot tub or inside in the large, fully equipped living room. The kitchen was large enough for a few of us to cook big meals all at once and stocked with everything we needed. There was a grill outside that we made use of and had great meals with all of us around the large dining room table. Luckily, we got great weather the weekend we stayed. So much of our time was spent lounging around the pool and some of us even took the bikes for a spin in the neighborhood. It was very cool to see all of the great houses in the neighborhood and downtown was a 5-minute bike ride away. We wouldn't have known because we never made it very far from the house. There was really no need.

Phillip was truly hospitable from the very start of our contact. He was incredibly responsive with any questions that we had and made us feel like we were welcome to enjoy his home. Tony, the property manager, greeted us with a glowing smile and made us laugh and laugh. The entire experience was heartwarming from beginning to end.

I highly recommend this amazing oasis and I know that I'll be staying here again very soon.

Spacious, relaxing, and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at 28 Palms Oasis - we couldn't have asked for a better space to have my 30th birthday party get together! The house itself was spacious, modern, and came with all sorts of comforts. The pool area was very entertaining. Property managers were very responsive and accommodating as well. Would definitely come back!

Ahhh. So relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

I organized a moms' getaway trip for my group of girls whom I've known for decades. The home is beautiful, bright and cheery. I loved how they decorated everything and can appreciate the little touches they added to make it a special vacation. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated. There were plenty of bathrooms for all the girls to "get ready" in. Phillip and his property management team were so easy to work with. We lounged around in the pool all day and just enjoyed not having to cater to our kids! It was a perfect weekend. We will be back for sure!

This property could not have been a more perfect place to stay at for our group of 5 couples. The very first time I sent an email to Phillip inquiring about the availability of his property, he responded promptly and was incredibly professional, courteous, friendly, and just an all around wonderful person. The best part is that he was consistent in his response time and never once disappointed from start to end. Phillip and his team did a remarkable job at making our stay feel luxurious and comfortable. I have been renting different properties in the Palm Springs and Palm Desert area for the past 10 years and can truly say that this was by far the best experience. The neighborhood is upscale, serene, and perfectly located near the downtown area. The house was clean, very well maintained and spotless when we arrived. The pool was sparkling clean and at the perfect temperature. We were all so happy with this beautiful home and will most definitely be returning again in the future. Thank you Phillp, Tony, and the rest of the 28 Palms team for exceeding our expectations and ensuring that we had nothing less than a fabulous weekend getaway to our favorite city. We look forward to staying at 28 Palms again next summer.
