About Eugene Brown

I am a physician who lives in the Chicago area and is in practice in western Illinois. I have lived in the Chicago area for the last 10 years but grew tired of the cold winters and wanted something for a sunny warm weather getaway from my medical practice. I found this house in late 2010 and embarked on a renovation project. I hope you will be pleased with the result.

Eugene Brown purchased this house in 2010

Why Eugene Brown chose Palm Springs

I selected this property because I wanted an architecturally significant home as opposed to a simply beautiful one. Palm Springs is a hotbed of modernism and mid-century preservation. With the success of Modernism Week in February, more and more of these historic homes are being renovated in this area of Palm Springs. Each year, Modernism week showcases the newest renovations and busloads of visitors come to enjoy the allure of these important homes. For these reasons, these simple but innovative homes often command premium prices for rental and sale.

What makes this house unique

With its pool and outdoor living areas facing west and abutting a park, this home provides unobstructed mountain views and glorious sunshine on winter days around the pool.

Excellent Palm Springs Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

As we had hoped, our stay at your house in Palm Springs was wonderful. We found the house to be perfectly clean and well-equipped. The pool, the outdoor kitchen, the living space, etc. were all at or above our expectations. My wife and I commented how this doesn’t seem like a normal rental house; it feels like a person’s home. It’s also very well designed in that we felt like we had five different areas to hang out in the backyard alone.

Greg was a great host; he met us upon our arrival (and was flexible to allow us into the house a bit early) and was very much on-call for us to ask questions. He even brought a bottle of non-alcoholic wine once he found out my wife is pregnant.

We loved Palm Springs and would absolutely stay here on a future trip.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a a great find - architecturally impressive, functional layout, nicely furnished. The outdoor space is superb! The property manager and owner are great to work with. The park in the backyard is a nice bonus. We have stayed at the house two times and have recommended it to our friends.

Perfect Palm Springs family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely Palm Springs was absolutely wonderful! The photos of the property were inviting but when we walked in, we realized that this home is truly special. All the decor and amenities were carefully chosen and genuinely represented the mid-century modern style of Palm Springs. The interior was quite comfortable and the open design to the pool area allowed both a visual and physical connection to the magnificently landscaped pool area, multiple venues to sit and relax, and to the view of the mountain beyond. It was well cared for inside and out, and both the owner and the locally based manager were helpful and readily available. The guest bedrooms worked out great for our adult children and the living space was well- suited for our family and guests as we celebrated our son's wedding. The aerial tramway was an opportunity to see Palm Springs from a different perspective and to escape from the July heat. Restaurants we enjoyed were the Matchbox and LuLu's with many more to explore. We would highly recommend this property and we thank Eugene and Greg for making this celebration so truly special.

Wonderful Stay in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

My husband, three children (ages 8,9,10) and I had a fabulous time at Absolutely Palm Springs last week. The house is just like it's presented online if not better. The pool and spa are lovely and the kids spent many hours going back and forth between the two. The house is wired for sound and comfort. Every aspect of the house is well-planned and functional with high-end comfort and relaxation in mind. As an added bonus, there is a park directly behind the house with lots of flat open space to play - the kids enjoyed pick up soccer when not in the pool or touring Palm Springs and beyond. The indoor/outdoor living concept was a great way to enjoy the California weather and the views. Special thanks to Greg and Eugene for their responsiveness and for making every effort for us to have a wonderful vacation. We'd love to come back!
