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!

Best place to spend a rainy week in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

Incredible home with first rate imenities! We were "stranded" in Palm Springs with a week of rain and found plenty to do despite the weather. There's lots of room for everyone to spread out inside and outside of the house - and the hot tubs did not disappoint. Linda is a wonderful, caring host - quick to respond when issues arise (like - how do we get the bubbles to work in the spa?). Looking forward to returning and enjoying the space when the sun is shining.

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in this fantastic spot. Host Linda has thought of everything, and the comfortable layout was perfect for our little group, including children. We spent most of our time by the pool and in the shade, but the well-stocked kitchen was the other hot spot. Can't wait to go back. Thanks, Linda.

Relaxing Palm Springs vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in two years. We had two families with 4 kids and 4 adults and had another relaxing getaway. You will not be disappointed renting this home. The kitchen is well stocked, the house modern and the pool is fantastic. Linda added an outdoor flat panel TV which made it much easier to watch football while lounging outside. Can't wait to be back.
