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 Vista Las Palmas

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.

The 28 Palms Oasis: A Stunning Home With Breathtaking Mountain View
average rating of 5.0 based on 52 reviews

A sunny relaxing Thanksgiving in Palm Springs!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a lovely week stay at The 28 Palms Oasis home in Vista Las Palmas. This area is truly a mid century modern dream and the 28 Palms Oasis home was lovely!

We were greeted upon arrival by Tony and were surprised and delighted to see there were two bottles of wine for our family as well as a pumpkin pie in the fridge for our stay! How thoughtful! The home is beautifully appointed and accommodated our family perfectly. The saltwater pool was lovely, floaties provided, bikes to roam around the area etc.

Thank you to Phillip for making the rental process so organized and turnkey, and thanks to Marshall for meeting us upon departure to go over the checklist and see everything was in order. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a five star stay in beautiful Palm Springs!

Truly Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

I rent houses through VRBO on a regular basis. This time around everything was above and beyond our expectations. Phillip was a pleasure to deal with and everything ran great on the confirmation and payment end. Marshall, our check in coordinator, went above and beyond and deserves and extra shout out. I wish all the owners had someone like Marshall on hand at check in and check out. He greeted us, and personally walked us through the property and showed us how everything worked and where everything was. He had great suggestions for the area as well. At check out he was on hand to make sure that everything went according to the owners specifications to ensure there were no surprises.

We were 3 families traveling to the area for Coachella. The house was 3 minutes from the shuttle stop and you can't ask for a better neighborhood. The town shuttle also stops nearby and makes travel around Palm Springs easy and fun. The house came fully stocked with everything you could need. From bikes to hair dryers. We weren't missing a thing. We hope to make this our regular stop in the desert.

Again a huge THANK YOU to Phillip and Marshall for making this trip smooth and relaxing.

Great Home Great Process Great Time

  • 5 of 5

First Time VRBO user and was nervous. But, the home was exactly as advertised. Was perfect for our family reunion of 9. The process with Phillip was super easy. He communicated clearly and quickly with me. The check in process with Tony and Martin (the property managers) was smooth, quick and on time. I really couldn't have asked for anything more ... beautiful home, great location, impeccable service, super simple/uncomplicated. Thanks Phillip, Tony and Martin.

Convenient, wonderful oasis

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 27 palms for Thanksgiving week. There were nine of us. This house is very close to the airport and downtown. We were able to walk or bike wherever we wanted to go. The pool and spa were perfect. Highly recommend this house.
