This tranquil Palm Springs vacation home is nestled on a quiet street, perfect for soaking up the serenity of the desert in addition to the famous year round sunshine!

Guest Reviews for this Palm Springs Vacation Home

Mother's Day Get Away

"Mother's Day Get Away It was a nice stay from the moment we landed. Our flight got in a bit late, and Gregory called to make sure we knew that we knew how to get into the house since the office would be closed. The next morning, I realized that I had forgotten to ask to have the pool heated, I called the office, chatted with Anne, and within 20 minutes, Juan was there to turn on the heat and get us set up. It was fantastic. Also, i called the day before check out, and Anne gave us a noon check out, which when you are travelling with two teen boys that don't wake up very early, made a WORLD of DIFFERENCE. Thanks so much for that! "
