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.

  • 5 of 5

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!

We'll Return!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in a mid-century masterpiece, so my wife and I jumped at the chance to rent Linda's wonderful Palm Springs home. First, Linda is a delight. Responsive, helpful and upbeat. Second, she has lavished love on a family home she quite evidently cares for. Every little touch is period perfect and the house is provisioned generously. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient and we absolutely intent to go back. Thanks Linda!

So much potential, so many problems

  • 2 of 5

Let me start out by saying this place is beautiful, and we were all so excited when we walked in the door and saw the whole house, the pool, fire pits and hot tubs. It was unfortunately cold and raining for a good deal of the time we were there so the pool was going to get limited use but we were happy that there were 2 hot tubs and fire pits to be able to keep us warm in the unseasonable weather.

Now for the problems:

1. The Pool Spa. We couldn't get it to work so I talked to Linda and she got it working remotely but it was still buggy. The handyman later confirmed that while the water was getting warm there was still problems with it. It wouldn't maintain the temperature for more than 20 or so minutes and then it would shoot scalding hot water followed by ice cold water into the tub.

2. The hot tub. It was broken and we told Linda and she had someone come out the next morning which was great. Unfortunately the news was that it needed a part the wouldn't be in until we were gone. The handyman gave us this information, we never heard anything about it from Linda.

3. The pool fire feature. Would have been great in the chilly weather but it was water logged from the rain, which is understandable. The handyman said that if we told Linda about it, he could come back out and use a shop vac to get the water out. I messaged Linda and she never responded about it.

4. The Fire Pit Table. Lastly, we were excited to be able to sit around the fire in the cold weather. It worked but when it was turned above about 30% there was a very loud and annoying whining noise that made it unbearable. We didn't mention this to Linda until after we left because at this point, there were many things that had been mentioned to her and had not been fixed.

I'm a reasonable person. I understand that things go wrong. The reason that I booked this place over others was really because of the 2 hot tubs and 2 fire pits. None of them worked as promised. I reached out to Linda during and after the stay to see about getting a small portion of our payment refunded. She never responded to any of it. Please keep this in mind if she responds to this review.

This place could be great. The amenities inside were great, the kitchen was well stocked, there were plenty of towels but for this many things to be wrong is definitely a red flag. By far the most unfortunate part is how Linda chose to handle the problems that we had.

The house was set up perfect. Fully stocked kitchen. Great for a long weekend when you don't want to eat out every meal. The kids loved the pool and hot tub.

We had a wonderful time. We spent most of our time in the pool since it was 113. The outdoor area is large and the pool was perfect.
