Guest Reviews for this Palm Springs Vacation Home

Movie Colony Estate Palm Springs

"Movie Colony estate Palm Springs The home was absolutely gorgeous - what a treat to stay in a historic property filled with original art! The grounds were absolutely beautiful - thoughtfully planned and very well maintained. It was delightful to smell orange blossoms every time we walked the path from the driveway to the kitchen door, and we really appreciated the private patio off the master, which was a nice place to take morning coffee while enjoying hummingbird visits. We also loved the spaciousness of the property - what a luxury to have so many lovely in which to lounge! The teenagers in our group enjoyed having the Casino Room all to themselves, and the spacing of the rest of the bedrooms allowed everyone to feel that they had their own private space. "

Large, Posh Home

"There were 12 of us, all family, including two little ones. The floor plan with great separation of space worked well for us. There were two adjoining rooms for kids and their parents and more secluded, separated rooms for the younger couples. Our master suite was sumptuous. The staff were all prompt and efficient in their responses. "

Beautiful, Spanish Style Estate

"We rented out the Movie Colony Estate for our wedding. We stayed at the estate with our wedding party and it was the perfect layout for us. The estate was spacious enough we could each get away and have time alone if we wanted and there was great common areas,as well. The property was landscaped and decorated beautifully, which made for gorgeous wedding pictures and the perfect background for our ceremony. Everything about our experience was GREAT! Some of our wedding party had never been to Palm Springs and fell in love with it. They are anxious to come back. "
