About Linda Lockhart

I'm the daughter of the property's second owners, Grace and William Lockhart. My parents purchased the home in circa 1965. The first owner was Bing Crosby's brother Phil. I remember my first trip to our family vacation home in the mid 60s with our station wagon packed with goodies for our vacation home.

In February 2012, at the age of 95 my dad passed away and now I own the home with my 89 year old mom.

With the guidance of award winning designers, the renovation turned out more spectacular than I could have imagined.

The kitchen is much larger than the standard kitchens in the Racquet Club Estates. The re-design included adding 5 feet to the kitchen and a long island to comfortably seat 4. It's important to me to have a full size kitchen with all the amenities and appliances that you would have in your own home along with. The kitchen is fully furnished including an ice cream maker and counter Kitchen Aid mixer.

The master bedroom furniture belonged to my parents along with the great-room credenza, living room coffee table. The hanging lamps in the front bedroom and living room were stored in a closet in this house for over 20 years and were integrated in the remodel for their period correct accents but more so, for their sentimental meaning.

My goal is to create a beautiful environment with appointments and decor that surpasses the expectations of the discriminate guest.

Breathtaking! Privacy! Relaxation to the max. Booking was a breeze, Greg was there to welcome us and give us all kinds of great info on the area. This is a gorgeous house...I have never stayed at a VRBO that was this well equipped...possibly better than my own home. The backyard is a vacationers dream! Pictures unbelievable do not do this house justice. Tested all three beds and all get the comfy as can be seal of approval, home is spotless. I would recommend a car for Palm Springs...nice covered driveway to park and just a few minutes drive to so many restaurants and activities. We will SO look forward to coming back to this property. Thank you so much for a fantastic stay!!!! Thank you Greg for helping us out!

Fantastic home, amazing pool, in the middle of palm springs, close to restaurants and downtown!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with another couple stayed here in early February for a quick getaway from the rain in Vancouver, Canada. We landed at Palm Springs airport at 3:30PM headed to the grocery store which is only 4 minutes away from the home and gave Linda a call to confirm our meeting time. She was already at the property putting the final touches for our arrival. We were greeted by Linda at the house. Immediately upon walking in, you feel relaxed by the ambiance of this home and pool and are amazed by the thought that has gone in to the renovations. The home shows better than the pictures look online. The kitchen is fully stocked, even with some necessities left behind such as spices, ice, oil, butter etc. The kitchen is massive and fully renovated to a high standard. The rooms were well appointed and bed were very comfy. All areas of the home were cleaned spotless.

The pool and built-in hot tub were the best part of this home. You can spend hours outside enjoy the patio, cooking in the outdoor kitchen and watching Olympics from the outdoor TV. We did find the pool quite cold this time of year without heat, so i would recommend requesting heat if you want to spend time in the pool during the cooler months. The built in hot tub was fantastic and took about 20 minutes to heat up whenever you wanted to use it. Linda can also remotely control the pool and spa if you are having issues, which help us request to turn on the pool heat during out last day of use without here even needing to come to the home.

Overall we felt our time here was too short, but we did sure enjoy the home and would love to return to the property for a future visit. Location and neighborhood was great and always felt totally safe.

Beautiful backyard & great location!

  • 4 of 5

We found this home on VRBO the pictures looked just like the home. It was located very close to the airport 10 minutes or so! There were some planes that did fly over but it did not bother us. You have a beautiful outside area. Every room (3 bedrooms) walk out to the yard. The house is well laid out and very mid-century decor. The kitchen is modern and we did cook often. You could spend your vacation in the back yard if you needed relaxation or golf. So, many of courses available. There are some good restaurants and downtown Palm Springs is a short drive away.. There is a grocery store nearby . Really enjoyed our time here.

We loved the place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and pool. The house had all of the amenities that we were looking for. We loved the retro felt we were living in another Era and vibe! The pool and spas were amazing with plenty of shade in and out of the pool.

We will be back for sure!

Thank you Linda for a perfect weekend!!!

Bill Davis.

Better than photos!!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a weekend stay at this property and had an amazing time! The backyard is even bigger and better than pictures. The pictures just can't give it justice. The pool is absolutely breathtaking. There is no shortage of space in the pool for multiple floaties. The house is fully stocked and even included condiments and spices for cooking. Linda met us upon arrival and was so sweet and accommodating. The location is great, short 5-10 minute drive from downtown Palm Springs. We have already discussed our next trip back to this property.
