Amazing weekend in Palm Springs!
- Emily Bellos
We absolutely loved staying at this house. The location was perfect for us, within walking distance of the Ace Hotel, and a quick drive to downtown (we probably could have biked there, but never had a chance). The house is completely and perfectly equipped for a perfect weekend. Pool chairs, towels, floats and supplies, bikes, great TV and entertainment system, BBQ, awesome kitchen. The yard and pool area are perfect, with wonderful little sitting areas, and a very lush landscape which feels incredibly private. The house was immaculately cleaned. The owner was incredibly easy to work with, checking in with us before, during and after our stay, and providing us with information about activities in Palm Springs and the surrounding area, it couldn't have been any better!! Thank you for a fantastic weekend!!!
Our own private oasis in the desert
- Karen Hayes
We have stayed in many vrbo and Homeaway rentals, but this is one of our favorites. From the first contact, Tom was responsive and helpful. The home is walking or biking distance to Palm Canyon Drive, and yet was so quiet we felt like we were far removed from civilization. Every corner of the yard around the house is like a resort. Little spots to sit and read or relax or enjoy a meal....or the larger area around the beautiful pool. All the doors open up along the pool patio so you can bring the outdoors in. The thoughtfulness put into the exterior rivaled the interior, for a true resort feel. We actually did less than we planned to in Palm Sorings because the house was so fun and relaxing. I have 3 teens and a pre-teen who didn't want to leave the house! Hummingbirds and doves entertained us while we ate on the patios. The beds were very comfortable, and the house was stocked with everything you could possibly need and more for comfort and enjoyment. I loved all the magazines, interesting books and excellent explanations for how to use everything. Tom's attention to detail was remarkable and we can't wait to go back!
The perfect home for a weekend escape
- jennifer capasso
Tom's home is perfect. It beautifully designed, stocked with everything you would need for a poolside escape! He takes great care in making sure the house is perfect and that you have everything you need. We ccanot wait to go back and stay at this amazing house.
Best Palm Springs rental ever!
- james mcallister
Lots of houses in Palm Springs tout themselves as the ideal place to rest, party, sun or get together with friends, but NONE is as serene or visitor-friendly at this one! Owner Tom has gone to great lengths to anticipate what guests want and need - - from the multiple, private outdoor areas (perfect for reading a book or getting caught up on episodes of Game of Thrones on your iPad) to the fully-equipped kitchen for those like me who want to cook! It's completely surrounded by privacy walls or thick hedges, so you don't have to worry about a swimsuit or tourists peering into your vacation kingdom. The pool is warm from the sun or from the solar heaters and the choice of A/C, swamp-cooler or just fresh air lets even the pickiest visitor have her/his way. I have rented over 20 different houses and condos in the desert, but this house is my favorite and I've been back 4 times! Remember, you get what you pay for and this house is great!
Well beyond all expectations.....
- John Simon Taylor
I have enjoyed many visits to the Palm Springs area and stayed in several great places at all price levels. The weekend spent at Tom's compound is by far the best residential decision ever! Privacy is the key ingredient from the secured parking, the lush courtyard which is totally enclosed and invisible from the street and neighboring properties. The house has the best floor plan with a flow that seamlessly blends the outdoors with the spectacular interiors. Fantastic furniture, accessories, lighting that rivals an art gallery.....and the world class art collection carefully chosen for each room by the owner. The amenities are abounding, and with the wonderful chef's kitchen which is better equipped than most homes.....the entire place makes you want to just stay on the property and take every advantage of what this most impressive estate has to offer. Tons of light....super comfortable bedding....glorious places outside in the gardens to eat, lounge, and explore the trophy class botanical environments. Meticulous housekeeping standards upon arrival, superior entertainment options, a very ready and available property manager to greet and welcome you.....all located in a very quiet and classy neighborhood that is close and easy to everything. My stay surpassed my very high standards and expectations......and this is now the ONLY residential option I will ever consider when visiting the desert. The old adage very much applies here......"you get what you pay for". I have paid more....and gotten much less. If you seek perfection,quality and expect a level of experience beyond what is usually offered.....this is the only choice. This property sets a new standard on all levels.......
- Nelson Ghazikian
I have rented many homes in the area but this one totally exceeded my expectations from the moment i walked onto the property. The grounds were immaculate and very private. The amenities were perfect. The tasteful decor and landscaping welcome you with open arms. My friends and i didnt want to leave. The owner was great and very responsive. I will definitely go back.
Palm Springs Private Oasis
- Chris Delgado
We cannot say enough how wonderful our stay was this weekend at Tom’s beautiful home. Located conveniently near all the fun spots yet tucked behind luscious landscaping, this home was truly perfect. The pool and the house itself are immaculate and a mid-century modernist’s dream. The Owner of the home is very responsive and has fantastic recommendations of things to do while you stay in Palm Springs. While there, try the fun spot Birba which has tasty cocktails and authentic pizza! We will definitely be back!!
Great Weekend in a perfect spot
- Karen Basbaum
I randomly found Tom's place while searching VRBO and based on the pictures it looked lovely --- but they don't do the place justice. I spent a long weekend there with my family and it was perfect, there is no detail overlooked. The house is clean, beautifully decorated, fully equipped (every kitchen gadget you could ever need) and in the best location. The yard is fully private in a quiet neighborhood yet very close to downtown for dining. We had some really good mexican food only 5 minutes away and not that we needed to go out for coffee (the place has 2 coffee makers!) but the starbucks drive-through is also 5 minutes away.
Great Time, Relaxing & Everything You'll Need
- Jeffrey Boland
We had a great time with this house. Everything is available and we will back to PS for our third visit. Our kids loved swimming in the pool everyday, the complete privacy and attention detail by the owner. We were met by Tom's friend who showed us everything regarding the house and all the info you'll ever need on Palm Springs. The bedrooms were great and private and whole house provided lots of space for a family four. This will be our only choice in PS from now on. Thanks for everything and we look forward to the new refurbished pool deck area in 2016.
Best Rental Ever!
- Velma Jones
This was our second stay at Tom's beautiful home, and once again we were delighted. This house is super clean, has all possible amenities, and is owned and operated by a thoughtful, generous man. I can't say enough good things about our experiences here. suffice it to say, it will always be our FIRST choice of places to spend a week or a weekend in Palm Springs. It was already perfection…and now Tom is adding a hot tub and fire pit! Can't wait to return in cooler months to enjoy those. BTW, two separate A/C systems keep this home comfortable in the worst of the desert heat. It got up to 117 degrees during our stay, low of 91. And yet we were comfortable throughout the house at all times. That is unheard of in a rental. Thank you, Tom!
The Best of Palm Springs!
- Jonathan Sabol
Our week at this serene retreat was magical! The property is completely secluded, thick hedges blocking the view to all but mountains and tall palm trees. We enjoyed playing in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub, and enjoying cocktails around the fire pit. Unique gardens surround the house with numerous places to socialize or enjoy solitude. Sculptures and diverse plants create different ambiance zones. The house also had many spaces to enjoy. The fireplace was perfect for chilly evenings. The sound system played CDs throughout, and original art and controllable lighting was in every room. We loved having two master suites on opposite ends of the house, each with direct access and views to the pool. The kitchen was clean and had everything we could possibly need. The house is in a great area of nice homes and friendly neighbors. There is a walking trail along the river just a block away. Also, less than a mile away is an amazing hike on the South Lykken trail- 1000 feet up in 1.4 miles to a picnic area overlooking Palm Springs. Take water. Obviously we were delighted with the property in every way. But the best thing was how welcoming and helpful the owner is.
Three Nights in PS
- Dominic N.
What a beautiful property! Our family of four (from England) stayed for three nights as part of a three-week California road trip. Tom's house was perfect after two frenetic days at Disneyland - spacious, well-appointed and attractively furnished, it was a great place to unwind and relax. Tom himself is a very courteous and considerate owner. We couldn't have hoped for more.
The pool and A/C were essential in July. If you want a break from the heat a trip up the aerial tramway is a must!
Our absolute favorite place in Palm Springs
We rent houses quite a bit in the Palm Springs area however we have never stayed at a place quite like Tom's. This beautiful resort style house offers privacy, a beautiful pool, garden, stereo surround sound throughout the house and by the pool, a house that is fully stocked which is so nice as we love to cook, TV's in all rooms and the kitchen which is key in Football season, a master bedroom that is separate from the other rooms, and best of all a house that is dog friendly. We stayed 9 days and enjoyed every minute of it. We will definitely be back. Thanks again Tom for another wonderful vacation.
Perfect house for family with growing teens. Room for everyone!
- Guest Owner, Eastbaymom Calgary, Alberta, Canada
This was my first visit to Palm Springs. I wanted a home with modern amenities with poolside views and space everyone in my family. This house is by far the best place i have ever stayed! The house is clean, spacious, and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Tom's attention to details in this house is not overlooked! We were greeted by his property manager, Tom who gave us the lay of the land and Tom, the owner always checked in with us to make sure we were taken care off. We stayed in a lot just enjoying the pool and cooking meals at the property. Tom has all the information about what to see, eat, and do. The aerial tram is a must see and do. Thanks Tom for sharing your wonderful home.
Hope to be back soon
- Nini, Fullerton CA
Came here with a few girlfriends and found ourselves just staying in and relaxing for the majority of our trip. This house is beautifully furnished and completely stocked- from the kitchen to the bathrooms. The stereo system was one of our favorite features. We had music playing throughout the house nearly the entire time (outside too!). Overall, the home has great privacy and perfect proximity to all the grocery/convenience stores. Definitely planning on making this an annual thing.
Paradise in Palm Springs!
- LT San Francisco, CA
We're becoming regular vacationers to Palm Springs. Tom's home is by far the best home we have ever rented! The second you open the gated entry, you know you're in the perfect desert oasis, surrounded by beautiful, lush, professional landscaping (a rarity) and a perfectly situated, gorgeous home. The home is immaculate inside and out, with high-end furnishings and very tastefully updated and decorated in every room. Everything you could possibly need is there for you, and more. It's all tucked away in a quiet, centrally located neighborhood. The lush landscaping makes the property completely private and quiet. You can cook in the beautifully updated kitchen or the awesome backyard, set up to handle BBQ-ing and quiet dining outdoors. All beautifully landscaped again. It was perfect! Tom couldn't have been nicer or easier to work with. He furnished us with lots of information on local happenings, restaurants, clubs, stores, neighborhoods and other attractions that we might be interested in. We can't wait to find time to rent his home again! Bravo, Tom!
- Velma J.
This home is everything it is described as, and more. We have rented homes across the country, and rented many times in Palm Springs, and this is by far our very best experience. This home is spacious, comfortable and CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! It comes well stocked with everything you could want or need. The kitchen has everything for preparing the simple to the sublime, and a large Weber gas grill just outside. Everything throughout was in perfect working order, no broken window blinds or temperamental appliances that you find in many rental properties. We felt much more like house gusts than renters here! And the exterior - what a surprise to find it so beautifully landscaped and maintained both around the pool and in the back yard. Evidence of the personal care for this property abounds, and it fairly screams "pride of ownership". It was pretty hot while we were there, and the large pool was a focal point of our time there, with lots of comfortable pool furniture, lounges, etc. to enjoy. The inside AC worked perfectly and we were very comfortable. This home is surrounded by tall green and lush hedges that, together with the front rolling gate insure the utmost in privacy. It was quiet and serene, and we felt as though we were ensconced in our own private resort, yet it is just a mile or so to downtown Palm Springs. Tom, the owner is a dream to work with, even sending me an email on the 4th of July, just to make sure we were comfortable and finding all that we needed. He made the rental process very easy and is a joy to work with. Tom, and his property manager, also Tom, could give lessons in hospitality to the rest of the rental community! This property is a gem, and I can't recommend it highly enough. This home will certainly be our first choice from now on when visiting the Palm Springs area.
Oasis in the heart of Palm Springs
- kimberly L.
We just returned from a Spring Break getaway to Palm Springs and this was the perfect oasis---close enough to the action of Palm Canyon Drive to get out if we felt the need (just a two minute drive or easy walk). But we rarely felt the need to leave. This property is big, comfortable and private, like a mini resort, and we preferred to stay around the pool and cook at home, either in the well equipped, and well stocked kitchen, or bbq and eat by the pool. Nothing is skimped on in this house. The decor is beautiful, the linens and towels plush , the furniture is designer, and the house is better stocked than my own! We were two families and we each had the privacy we needed in the evenings and gathered in the wonderful common areas by day. The seven days whipped by yet I felt like I had been gone a month. So relaxed by the time I left. I'll definitely be back.
Awesome - We expected no less
- Hiding from the Rain North Vancouver
We stayed over Spring break and it was super!!!!! Tom and his team are top notch in hospitality. This home is loved, loves guests and it shows. Would I stay there again...of course! Enjoy everyone, Palm Springs has the nicest weather and nicest folks! Thanks Tom!
Welcoming, convenient, comfortable, overall an excellent home.
- Krishna N.
We loved this house. The all day sun, nice neighbourhood, great pool and patio area which is very private, amazing garden, very well stocked kitchen, beautifully decorated, good amenities and pleasure working with the owner.
Fantastic Family Christmas Vacation
- Jim O. Vancouver, BC Canada
We just returned from a week at this property with a family of six adults, the three-bedroom setup was perfect for the couples, each had their own bathroom and private space. The indoor/outdoor living spaces are amazing, complete with a very well equipped kitchen and awesome BBQ, everything you could possibly need to make any meal. The house is also very well stocked with loads of sundries like spices, tinfoil, ketchup etc. The poolside space and surrounding garden is so private you would believe you are on your own island. There is a fantastic gas fireplace in the living room to cozy up around in the evenings and listen to music that plays throughout the entire house. The indoor space is very comfortable for visiting, family games or movie night. If you prefer some quiet time, you can retire to your own corner of the house and curl up in front of your own flatscreen TV or read through any of the dozens of great books and magazines. There is plenty to do in the area, and Tom (the owner) had prepared an extensive welcome package that directs visitors to groceries, activities, restaurants, etc, no detail has been left out. Our family took part in a few local activities, including a day trip to Disneyland, however all of us just wanted to return to the backyard, soak in the warm pool and hang out together. This is one of the most versatile properties we've been to and look forward to going back. Its great for young families, a small group of friends (golf buddies or girls getaway), grandparents, you name it, this property will provide for an amazing relaxing vacation. The property is nothing short of a private oasis in the middle of Palm Springs. The reviews are consistent, Tom is amazing, the photos are accurate, the house is spotless, beautifully decorated and everything worked as it was supposed to. Unlike some VRBO's you can book this property without any worry.
A second visit . . . .
- jpb W. Los Angeles, CA
We returned to this property because the first vacation was terrific. The second was just as terrific. Though just a long weekend, the amenities of this house and the ease of living made it easy to relax, enjoy and refresh. Everything is just as described. Clean and comfortable. Best is the indoor/outdoor feel, the very comfortable beds, the serene neighborhood, the proximity to shopping, eating and downtown and the inviting décor. Both owner and manager were great to work with. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed his stay, taking full advantage of the large 'frontyard' and great access to the river for long walks. We'll hopefully be back soon.
- E Herzog Seattle, wa
I have nothing but glowing reviews of this home. Myself and 5 other girlfriends stayed here for 5 days. The home is spectacular, the pool and deck perfect for long hours in the sun and cool desert evening with indoor outdoor living. Tom the owner, and Tom his friend who was there to greet and orientate us upon our arrival were so friendly and easy to work with. Toms responsiveness during the whole process prior to our trip and after we're so quick and easy. We hope to stay at his home again. The location for this home is within walking distance of downtown ( a mile walk or 2 ) which we did several times, with great restaurants and some nightlife and shopping. It's super close to grocery stores and the airport. Neighborhood is quiet. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone.
Best place we have stayed at in Palm Springs
- Nick, Los Angeles
My wife and I are regular renters in the Palm Springs area. We generally rent 3 to 4 times per year. Tom's place ranks at the very top. The backyard and pool area are spectacular. We love the grass for our dog, lots of shade. The landscaping with the beautiful wind chimes are wonderful to look at while laying out at the pool. Watching the sun go down behind the mountains while sipping our favorite glass of wine highlighted our evenings. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen has everything you need to put together a wonderful dinner. TV's are located in every room including the kitchen, you need those during football season. There is a great barbeque area in the back with lights over the grill, which makes it very nice to barbeque. Each room has it's own bathroom. The Master bedroom is located on one side of the house and is separate from the other two rooms. Which is fantastic, when guests are over, because we are early risers. Truly an amazing house, we will definitely be back.
Awesome Rental Home
- Layla T.
We planned a relaxing weekend away for my mother's 50th birthday. The house was perfect. Everything you read in the reviews and description is true. Tom was great to work with and so understanding. The house is a gorgeous and decorated very well. The things that stick out in my mind from the weekend was the house wide/outside sound system, newly renovated bathrooms, and the pool area was very private and lots of places to lounge.
Classy, Lovely Home
- Steve Long Beach CA
We had a terrific time during our week at the house. The decor is lovely and the house is well appointed. We spent a great deal of time at the pool. The sound system is great. The house is very convenient to town and we went to some very nice restaurants very close to the house. The house has two sleeping areas so it is great for more than two people. We plan to return next year. We loved the fact the house is private with trees in front for privacy at the pool.
Great place to chill out and relax
- Kirsty D. Johnstone, Scotland
Our family of 5 people, including 3 generations, spent an amazing first week of our California holiday in this spectacular home. There really could be nowhere better a place to allow our body clocks to re adjust and to get us in the relaxed frame of mind for a great holiday. The house was spotless and beautifully interior designed with amazing bathrooms and kitchen. The pool and garden were perfect and well used in the extreme heat. The luxury extras like the brilliant refrigerator with chilled water and ice, the integrated sound system throughout the house and pool area and the amazing media room were all much appreciated and well used. As Scots it was a special highlight of our holiday to watch Andy Murray win Wimbledon on the huge TV! Palm Springs is a beautiful, friendly place which we easily explored on the bikes provided on a couple of occasions. I cannot recommend the house, pool, garden, area and owner and manager highly enough and would love to come back. Girl and boy teenagers, mum and dad and gran all delighted. Huge thanks to Tom and Tom.
We loved our stay!!
- Revmumbles San Francisco
We had an amazing time. This house had an amazing pool,was excellently decorated,and had all the amenities you could ask for. We ended up staying in the majority of time and floating in the pool. Tom was very friendly and very helpful. Would definitely come back here again!
This home is wonderful in every way!
- Pewtergal Los Angeles
Our family just enjoyed 5 days in this beautiful home which is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The description provided is accurate and goes beyond what the pictures can convey. Furnishings and artwork are superb. We especially appreciated the cleanliness of the house and the beauty of the outside area. Much attention to detail is obvious everywhere. Communication with the owner has been such a pleasure. He is responsive and very kind. We would definitely recommend this lovely home to others who will share our sentiment that "the longer we stay here, the more we love this home."
- Gregg Bend, Or
we could not have found a more prefect "hide" away.... Superbly clean, orderly, and a well taken care property... very private, and quiet... A "perfect" hide away, and plan to use again, and again...
- BG New York
We spent 4 delightful days at this home to escape the cold back home. We found the home to be very well maintained, and perfectly clean upon our arrival. The house is fully stocked with many extras. We particulary enjoyed the pool area, which very nice, and totally private.
The owner, Tom was easy to work with, and takes great pride in this home. We would highly reccomend this to anyone seeking a quiet retreat in Palm Springs.
- Robin. LA
This home was the perfect fit for my wife and I and both sets of parents. 6 total adults. The house was clean, fully equipped and well furnished/decorated. Just really well cared for. Everything worked and felt newly renovated. Everyone had space and privacy throughout the stay. The whole experience was a joy. Our parents where showering me with accolades for 'finding the place'. The indoor/outdoor flow was fun. The fireplace was neat. The pool was worth heating, we didn't think we'd use it but ended up in there quite a bit. Fully equipped kitchen and grill experience. The location couldn't be better. Very close to 'the main drag'. Totally private yard. Owner was promptly responsive to texts and emails. If I go back to Palm Springs, I won't bother searching elsewhere. I'd be delighted to return here.
This place is a gem!
- none Temecula, Ca.
Truly an oasis secluded in a quiet neighborhood and yet close to all the downtown action. Owner and near by neighbor/helper were really nice people and took the up most care to meet all of our needs! Beautifully furnished and landscaped with everything you would possibly need for your stay including lots of great reading material to enjoy. If it's rest and relaxation you are looking for this is the place. We Love Palm Springs!!
- David J.
The other reviewers do not lie! In reality the villa is even better than the web site (that is not to detract from the website!), which we have never found to be the case before! The design, decor, furnishings and accessories are all of such a high standard and quality. We were looking for privacy, comfort, peace and tranquility, all of which we found in abundance. The cleanliness was unsurpassed. The pool was cleaned twice and we were only there for 6 days! It was not like being in rented accommodation, everything was there for a home from home. We had a warm welcome from Tom's business associate. We will always treasure the memory of this holiday because our grandson was born on our last night! We were sorry to leave but glad to go home to meet him!
Better than expected!
- jpb W. Los Angeles, CA
Just got home from a wonderfully relaxing time at this lovely home. We had two families and this house was set up just perfectly, with bedrooms and bathrooms on either side of the home and plenty of space between to enjoy the large TV/Cable, read the great books/magazines or cook in the well stocked kitchen. We had the option to eat indoors or out. The AC was wonderfully comfortable, but there was also plenty of shade outside, so that we could comfortably enjoy the pool, the small lawn and all the beautiful landscaping. The beds were very comfortable and I really enjoyed all the updates in the bathrooms and kitchen. We didn't get out much, but when we did, it was 2 minutes to drive to downtown. Several of the group had wonderful bike rides on the bikes (provided) with quiet neighborhood streets and great bike trails nearby. We've rented several houses in Palm Springs, and this one was, by far, the nicest for everyone, including our dog. Thanks Tom, for a wonderful stay and being so easy to work with. We'll be back, I hope! JPB
- Laurie R.
Every year the 3 of us couples plan a get away. This year we chose Palm Springs as our destination. We were very, very, very pleased with our stay. From the time we were warmly greeting by Tom's business associate to the time we left, everything was perfect! Accommodations were comfortable, extremely clean (we are very picky that way) and very private. Pictures don't tell the half. Tom was very easy to do business with, great communicator and very detailed. We even enjoy all the detailed information of area he had laid out for our convenience. There was no detailed overlooked. All this at very reasonable price. We had wonderful stay.
- Angela L.
What can i say from the moment we arrived we were in heaven....My husband and i lead very busy lives we own two businesses and needed somewhere to totally unwind..And by day one we had done this.The house was beautiful quite and tranquil just what we needed. For us it was a piece of paradise......
We have two teenagers so usually to keep them entertained can be job on its own but there was plenty for them to do skateboarding, shopping, swimming, hiking we took them to knotts berry water park which is only a 10 minute drive. We went to big bear china lake,we also managed to squeeze a night in vegas etc...
Palm springs has an array of different restaurants we visited lulus a couple of times which was exceptional and las casitas which served excellent mexican food and brilliant cocktails which iam already missing..
The house was immaculately presented and furnished to a high standard also the outside area was well equiped with lots of seating areas some shaded if preferred,the pool was large enough for the kids to have some good fun..
What else can i say we had a fantastc time so much so we have rebooked for next year..I would just like to say thank-you to Tom for loaning us his piece of paradise and can`t until next year for our returning visit....

- Angela L.

Our children who are teenagers, had a brilliant time too with lots of things to do,skate boarding, shopping,hiking swimming places to go and see i.e the living zoo,china lake,joshua tree,we even managed a night in vegas. Palm springs also has an array of different restaurants one of our favourite being lulus and the mexican restaurant las casitas,we also enjoyed the village fest.

All our dreams came true!
- Linda W. Bothell, Washington
My husband and I have just returned from a 9 day stay at this amazing home in Palm Springs. From the moment you walk in the gate of Tom's home you enter what we considered to be our Garden of Eden. The pool area in the front of the home is COMPLETELY private! It has been masterfully landscaped with lush green foliage,flowers in bloom and palm trees stately standing over the yard.The smell of plumeria and bougainvillea are continually blowing through as you lounge on the amazingly comfortable lounge chairs that are provided. Tom the owner, has not left one area of the beautiful home undecorated. At every turn you see architecture and fashion. The kitchen has all new appliances and everything you need to cook. Even when we arrived there were a few chilled beers waiting for us! Each of the 3 bedrooms are tastefully decorated and a peaceful retreat at the end of the night. The bathrooms are a spa escape, the showers have spa jets and rain shower heads. Beautiful tile and modern sinks are in each and every bathroom. The home also has a great media room with directions on how to use the TV,DVD and CD player. They are easy to understand instructions for everything. We have stayed in other rental homes before and struggled to understand how to use the air conditioner, stereo,TV and many other things in the home. Not here. Tom has left directions for EVERYTHING! Coupons,maps and ideas of things to see and do during your stay are all left for your convenience. The minute you arrive you are instantly put at ease and you feel the home is yours to enjoy. After the second day we were already scheming as to when we could return for a repeat visit. This vacation home was everything we could have hoped and dreamed it would be. It is beautiful and a sanctuary of rest and relaxation. We recommend this home completely!!!!
- Kiss Los Angeles
This was a beautiful home to stay in. Very neat, very well-designed and relaxing. The pool can be heated to a very comfortable degree if the weather is cooler in Palm Springs. The location was great, and the landscaping provided a lovely surround. We all enjoyed it.
Captures Vintage Palm Springs
- SBtraveler Santa Barbara, CA
My girlfriends and I stayed here last October for an annual trip. My grandfather lived in Palm Springs for many years and I would say this property is a very good choice for people coming to Palm Springs. The location is excellent. It's close to town and there is a wash for walking nearby. It's the sunny side of town in one of the better neighborhoods with mountain views. The pool area is warm and well maintained with grass and palm trees. Everything is very clean and nice. In addition to the mid-century modern style, it also offers comfort in all of the rooms. It's a smaller home as many of them in the neighborhood are, but for a couple or small group it's just right. It doesn't feel like a rental, but more of a real home. The owner was very easy to work with and had a property manager on hand. There was a plumbing issue and it was handled as quickly as possible, but due to that experience I am only about to give it 4 stars. Otherwise, we would have given it a 5. We would return.
Luxury home in great neighborhood
- Dave and Pam Orange County
We were looking for a quiet, comfortable place in the desert that would accommodate our Brittany Spaniel. This place turned out to be ideal, with a sunny south-facing pool area, a very comfortable house, and located in a quiet high-quality neighborhood. The river wash is nearby, with trails on either side, giving us the perfect place to take long walks with our dog and enjoy the mild, sunny days. We also enjoyed the convenience to the heart of the Palm Springs shopping and dining area. We've stayed mostly in La Quinta Resort in the past, but this place offers comfort and conveniences that we found superior in many ways. Tom is an outstanding host and has set up the house to be very visitor-friendly. The gas fireplace was also a treat, as was the comfortable entertainment den with a large flat-screen TV and lots of movie channels.
Gorgeous Home with Everything You Could Possibly Ask For!
- Rob Ladera Ranch, CA
When you first arrive at this Palm Springs home, it is very unassuming. But, once you open the gates, you will be amazed at the tropical oasis that awaits. And it gets better--the home is gorgeous inside (the home is even more beautiful than the pictures)! The owner, who is so easy to work with and accommodating, has thought of every little detail in this beautiful home. You don't need to bring anything but yourself and your bathing suit and prepare to have a great time! The decor and furnishings are fabulous, everything I would want in my own home. We hung out in a different common area each night we were there because every room had such a charm and warmth about it. When it was time to check out, our kids did not want to leave (and neither did we)! We can't wait to come back to this great home. And we can't stress enough how welcoming and easy it was to rent from the owner, thank you again for such a great first experience for us and our family in Palm Springs!
Fabulous Property in Palm Springs

Having arrived from London, travelling on the weekend of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, we landed at LAX half an hour early, only for it to be hours later before we finally emerged to pick up the hire car. I rang Tom (the owner) who could not have been more obliging. He advised us to take our time driving down and even went to the length of purchasing some provisions for us as we were now arriving late at night. On arrival Tom gave us a tour of his property. It's everything and more than described. It's FABULOUS. I'd like to say it's home from home, but living in the UK, my home isn't as good as this. Tom encouraged us to treat it as if it were our own home. The location is superb, just a few minutes by car to the shops and restaurants. It was also close to Smoke Tree Village where we did all our food shopping. The property is very clean and the kitchen has every utensil you could possibly think of. There is so much room to relax either inside or out by the fantastic pool. (Plenty of towels provided for pool use). We used the week to rest and visit different shopping malls as well as pop back up into LA. Desert Springs is amazing. The only disappointment was that the aerial tramway was closed for maintenance. It gives me an excuse to return. I would not hesitate to check out Tom's property first and would highly recommend it to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
Traumhaftes Ferienhaus in ruhiger Wohnlage!
- Moiser Solingen
In diesem Haus fühlt mal sich sehr wohl. Die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet, Handtücher sind ausreichend vorhanden, TVs, Medienanlage, Wlan, Wecker, Bügelbrett, Gesellschaftsspiele, alles vorhanden. Der Pool ist groß und eine angenehme Abkühlung. Bequeme Poolliegen mit herrlichem Fernblick auf die naheliegenden Berge und die ruhige Lage laden zum Entspannen ein. Durch die Lautsprecherablage im Haus und Terrassen-/Poolbereich kann man überall seine Musik geniessen. Der Vermieter und auch die Betreuung vor Ort sind sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Wir (Familie mit 2 Jugendlichen, 17 + 20J.) haben hier 3 traumhafte Ferienwochen verbracht und können mit gutem Gewissen jedem dieses Haus empfehlen. Es ist uns sehr schwer gefallen diesen herrlichen Ort zu verlassen.
Fantastic property in Palm Springs CA
- Adrian G. Ireland
We are a family all the way from Ireland first time in extreme heat of Palm Springs in summer and loved it. oh to dive into a pool that is warm and yet refreshing! We will never forget this. Fantastic, house This property is in the perfect location, 2 mins drive from restaurants, and coffee shops. The pool is to die for, especially first thing in the morning and last thing at night. It is quiet,perfectly clean and oh so private.(lots of fluffy towels and beautiful bed linen) What the photos don't show is the amazing decor, the unbelievable sound system ( music pumped into pool area and bedrooms), the kitchen that is completely equipped for any chef with a superb bbq. Our children are 6 and 8 and they loved the property, the pool and the Cinema room. The area was extremely safe and close to all the necessary services. The air con was fantastic and made the July temperatures seem irrelevant. Tom the owner was always available to answer any questions, even acting as a local tour guide. The house has a detailed guide of all of the local attractions including the local restaurants, not to mentions books and games. We found the steak houses very good but expensive, the uncovered jewel was a little Italian called L'Olivo Italian Bistro on Palm Caynon Drive. we have stayed in numerous properties all over the world and this was one of the best so far. Can't recommend it more highly.
