5 Star, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4, Desirable Palm Springs South Location
Why David Murphy chose Tahquitz River Estates
We love the desert and in particular the fun quirkiness of Palm Springs. The house is charming. And while we admire and celebrate the mid-century modern heritage of Palm Springs, this house appealed to us because of its comfortably vintage feel. We wanted something different and, well, old school - as a retreat from the hectic, fast-paced modern world. This is it.
What makes this House unique
This is a quiet and private retreat - yet so close to all the fun Palm Springs has to offer. Great location, just off Palm Canyon Drive - the main road passing through the desert communities. - and a quick 5 minute drive to downtown shopping or the airport.

Sweet spot in the desert
Loved this nicely decorated Spanish style home. Excellent location and landscaped beautifully.
We loved it!!!
This is a lovely classic Spanish bungalow in a quiet, well located slice of Palm Springs that we thoroughly enjoyed for our Christmas holiday. What a treat!!! David is an exceedingly generous and welcoming host and answered SO many of my questions with care and clarity and kindness. In keeping with his approach is this marvelous very well appointed and lovely in every way property that we could not have been happier to enjoy. Every surface and comfort have been carefully considered inside and out making it a very delightful visual experience in this dramatic if not old world somewhat Hollywood ambience that the area embodies. Suffice to say we could not more highly recommend a stay at this beautifully curated and impeccably maintained hideaway so easily reached and leading with ample access to the regions endless offerings and pleasures. Thank you David!!!
A vacation home, not a rental
We loved our stay at Casita Olancha. I have stayed in several rentals and have never reviewed one before. The home is clean, comfortable, and well appointed - it is definitely more of a vacation home rather than a typical rental with only barebones necessities. The kitchen was well equipped for our Thanksgiving dinner. David is incredibly responsive and hospitable. We loved our visit and hope to return!
Everything about our stay was wonderful! Home beautifully decorated and comfortable. My 89 year old mom loved it, everything convenient and easy to move around from the house to the pool to the carport. Lovely greenery and environs, enjoyed pool each day. Crisp and clear weather in May, not too hot. Couldn't have had a nicer time with restaurants close by (highly recommend Miro and The Green Room was very fun.
Wish I could live here!
This Palm Springs bungalow is beautifully decorated and feels like home! We enjoyed the pool, bbq, and the rest home’s amenities tremendously! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us, David!
