About Kari

I love the Palm Springs area, and I love creating spaces for guests to enjoy. I have 2 other vacation rentals in Palm Springs, and have been hosting guests for over 10 years, first in Kauai and now in Palm Springs. As a seasoned property owner and successful vacation rental host, I know what is important to guests and make it my mission to ensure that everyone enjoys the best possible vacation experience.

Kari purchased this house in 2014

Why Kari chose Palm Springs

A classic Alexander mid-century gem built in 1957. It is part of a rich architectural heritage that is quintessential Palm Springs. What more is there to say?

Beautiful, clean, relaxing! Perfect vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly beautiful and worked perfectly for my family when we were all in town for a destination wedding. The furnishings are very comfortable and the kitchen is huge with plenty of space for multiple chefs without tripping over eachother. The backyard is a vacation in itself: gorgeous pool, firepit, gas grill, all of which we enjoyed. The pool wasn't heated to the temp I like but I contacted the owner and she immediately responded and turned up the temperature. The only big downfall was water pressure in the kitchen sink. Hard to wash dishes with that pressure. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Setting for Relaxing in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Post & Beam and can honestly say it was the best rental experience I've ever had. Our group was 10 total and everyone was incredibly comfortable for our 4 night stay. The common areas of the house are so open, it's easy to have everyone relax in the space without feeling cramped.

The master suite is magnificent!! Cal King bed and tons of space. The bathroom is huge. All the girls in our group basically gathered in there to get dressed. The room opens to a beautiful patio that is well manicured and features a small fountain. The other two bedrooms in the main house are much smaller but very comfortable. There is a shared bathroom in the house which was a great size and easy for multiple people to use. The casita has a King bed and twin trundle beds. It's great for kids or single adults bunking together. It's spacious and quiet. The bathroom is a little small, but like I said, if you are ok sharing space, there is plenty in the house.

The pool is awesome!! There is both a concrete wall and hedges surrounding the area so it is incredibly quiet. I think we heard neighbors once during our entire stay. The fire pit was a great gathering spot in the evenings. There was ample patio furniture for a group our size which we loved!

The kitchen is really a highlight. It's huge and so open. We congregated there quite a bit. The dining table extends and comfortably seated all 10 of us. There are plenty of dishes, glassware, pots/pans, flatware etc. There was not any gadget we needed and couldn't find. When shopping, however, be sure to grab salt/pepper, sugar etc.

The location of the house is super convenient. It's walking distance (or a very short drive) to the Ace Hotel, Koffi and the grocery store. A few people from our group went for a run in the mornings and loved the area. We relied on Uber to get downtown and rides were about $5-8 each way.

I really can't say enough great things about this house! Kari was so easy to work with and super responsive. Everything was presented accurately in the listing. I look forward to staying there again!

Great house - very impressive

  • 5 of 5

This house is very impressive. South springs is very trendy and this house stood out. Our host was very helpful in accommodating our stay and even helped with loss of power through a planned maintenance period by the power company. Hope to comeback one day.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family gathering celebrating my dad's birthday, and it was perfect. There was enough space for us to enjoy both the private bedroom areas and the open spaces. The pool was magnificent, and we spent most of our time in the pool and in the outdoor lounge and dining areas. The house is well appointed and nicely decorated. It has a lovely view of the mountains, which we especially enjoyed during sunrise and sunset. And, as other reviewers have noted, the kitchen is huge!

Finally, Kari was really easy to deal with and always extremely responsive - both before renting the house and while we were there. All in all, I highly recommend this house and am hoping to stay here again sometime.

Beautiful -- Relaxing -- Delightful

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience we had staying at Post and Beam! From the check-in to check-out, super easy. The home is beautiful inside and out. As you can see from the pics, the home is modern and sleek yet it's very inviting. The kitchen is huge, huge, huge...I wish I had all that storage in my kitchen! The bedrooms were very well appointed and the beds were very comfortable. The master bath was top notch!

The pool area was super relaxing as well. You have a great view of the San Jacinto Mountains from the lounge chairs. I do wish there was an outdoor sofa and hot tub but no biggie. And, the casita was super spacious and well appointed as well.

Overall, wonderful experience.
