About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

Completely walled and gated, Kara Mia provides the perfect combination of location, privacy, comfort and style to provide an ideal venue for your Palm Springs escape. Be amongst the fortunate to enjoy this completely renovated home. Kara Mia is the perfect vacation rental property with lush and stylistic grounds delighting the senses from the moment you open its gate.

Inside, Kara Mia presents a thoroughly modern hacienda chic aesthetic. Thoughtfully and very recently rebuilt in 2014, this 1939 Spanish estate home is newly furnished with vintage and modern classics, inspiring local art and an impressive resort-style pool. The home's original character abounds with an open beamed old timber great room which is complimented by an equally expansive and open beamed chef's kitchen equipped with top Viking appliances, wine cooler and hammered copper sinks. The kitchen includes a built-in bar, dining nook, spacious linen sectional and its own large screen TV.

A magnificent mid-century classic chrome and glass dining table seats eight in the formal dining area where french doors lead out onto an equally large outdoor covered dining room and kitchen. The al-fresco dining area looks out onto a resort-style pool. The generously sized, deep ozone pool was completed in 2015 features an integrated tanning ledge large enough to accommodate multiple chaises and of course, includes a heated spa.

Enjoy evenings by moonlight while the sheer descent waterfall delights the ears and flames from the in-ground gas fire pit dance against the sheer blue of pool water. Moonlight, or lack thereof, is supplemented with landscape lighting which has been generously and artistically arranged throughout the property, making evening gatherings rival daytime. Stunning westerly mountain views abound, and both front or back grounds are equipped with gas fire pits for those cozy evening gatherings.

A total of four bedrooms are situated in separate wings connected by the common living areas to provide both privacy and congeniality, ideally suited to couples' retreats. Each wing offers two bedrooms, one with an en-suite, the other an adjacent bathroom. All bedrooms are furnished with queen-size beds aside from the west-wing master which offers a king. The west-wing master bedroom opens onto both the pool area and a private secret garden patio enhanced with tropical vegetation and landscape lighting.

The house is equipped with a room-to-room and whole house intercom system which works in conjunction with a video enhanced pedestrian gate doorbell. DISH satellite TV service is provided throughout the home with six HD TV LED or Plasma SmartTV screens. Bluetooth capable audio systems and clocks are also offered throughout the home.

Kara Mia is in Las Palmas just a few blocks from the Uptown Design District featuring fine dining, shopping and cultural events; Fodor's "most anticipated new hotel" is just minutes by foot as is much of what downtown Palm Springs has to offer.

This fun and stylish Palm Springs vacation rental is located in a highly desirable neighborhood, walking distance from Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs famed downtown strip. You can enjoy walking to downtown Palm Springs restaurants, shops, and the world famous VillageFest, an outdoor market on Palm Canyon Drive held every Thursday night.

You're also conveniently located close to outstanding golf at over 100 golf courses in the Palm Springs area, relaxing spas, outlet mall shopping, and one-of-a-kind attractions like the Palm Springs Aerial Tram and Indian Canyons.

Guest Reviews for this Palm Springs Vacation Home

Luxury Home

"Luxury Home The home was clean and everything in the house was very high quality. The pool/spa area was amazing!!! "

by Jennifer C. | San Diego CA | May 31, 2017


"Perfect! Such a great home! Equipped with everything that we needed for a meet up with my family and my brothers family! Cousin fun in the pool. We absolutely loved how the whole place was enclosed but you could walk around the entire property with no gates on the inside. Fire pit near pool was amazing! Would love to rent again! There was enough room to be together and plenty of spots to retreat to when we needed them. Highly recommend. "

Perfect Stay At Kara Mia

"We stayed 5 days and it was simply amazing. The house is clean and tidy with an elegant decor and offers all the possible amenities- TVs in every room, a huge equipped kitchen, garden with fireplace, huge BBQ place and heated pool with jacuzzi. The bonus of the pool is that is big and deep enough to allow you to swim around. Restaurants and city centre are just a few minutes away. I would definitely recommend Kara Mia. "
