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.

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.

This is an amazing home to vacation at! It is beautifully decorated, has an open floor plan, plenty of room and a private backyard with a large pool. The area is clean and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need.The AC works well indoors which was a major plus in the 110+ Palm Springs weather. In addition, the customer service provided by Phillip and Doug was exceptional. The response time was quick and they were very accommodating.

Overall our experience was great! We would love to stay here again the next time we are in Palm Springs!

Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautifully decorated, very spacious, very clean, and very well-equipped for a relaxing vacation. We had plenty of room for everyone in our group and the kitchen was perfectly stocked for barbecuing and group cooking. Many areas for hanging out with multiple people. The AC worked great indoors. The pool was lovely and the spa got hot enough once we figured out how to work the heater/remote. Overall no complaints!

Beautiful home, Palm Trees, and Amenities- Epitome of Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

From the booking process to checking out of the house, the customer service was above and beyond my expectations. Doug & Phillip along with their team truly care about your experience not just with the house, but with visiting Palm Springs. They offered great recommendations for dining and even let us know about a big event going on in Palm Springs- restaurant week.

The house had everything you needed- a spacious backyard with a beautiful pool and lounging chairs, clean and very comfortable beds, a fully stocked kitchen (everything you can think of needing while entertaining a group), bicycles, and more. I especially enjoyed the “Casita” for a quiet area away from the other bedrooms.

I would love to stay here again whenever I come back to Palm Springs. I will also recommend this house to friends and family because the value is absolutely 5 stars!

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What an unbelievable property and fantastic experience. It's hard to mix high style and comfort but this house is a perfect melding of both.

Not only is the house amazing but the service provided by Doug & Phillip and their team is outstanding. House was fully stocked with all the necessities. Just bring food & drink and you won't have any reason to leave for your entire stay.

Next time we head to the desert this will be our FIRST choice of place to stay. Without a doubt.
