About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

8 Bedrooms! 2 Pools! Beautifully updated in 2012! An amazing vacation experience awaits you at California Way with ideal vacation or retreat accommodations for vacations or reunions in Palm Springs. Sleeps up to 18.

This Palm Springs private family compound combines 3 villas - a great place to stay for an extended family, for couples, for groups of friends, for golf trips, delivering just the right combination of togetherness and privacy!

California Way includes 3 properties on one spacious private lot: The Lodge, The Cottage and The Cabana — 3 properties on one spacious and private lot, close to downtown, with 8 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms total — nestled together on a spacious lot that offers splendid mountain views.

The centerpiece, for lounging in the sun, is a gorgeous new swimming pool, with a delightful tanning shelf at one end and plenty of depth for splashing or lap swimming. Between the pool and the Cottage, a California style round in-ground whirlpool spa beckons. There is also a large quite pool located adjacent to The Lodge.

There is an abundance of outdoor spaces for seating, sunning and conversation. There are numerous sets of outdoor tables & chairs for conversation and dining, adjoining both the swimming pool and the quiet pool.

Indoors, the principal gathering area for California Way is the Great Room at The Lodge, a sprawling living and dining area, decorated in splashy reds and yellows, with a beautiful stone fireplace and seating for up to 16. One dining table in the great hall room seats up to 10. Another table in the great room foyer seats 6.

The Lodge has been featured in The New York Times as an example of the quintessential indoor-outdoor Palm Springs style home, and features modernist furnishings by iconic 20th century designers including Charles Eames and George Nelson.

For a quieter mood, try the stylish living room of The Cottage, decorated in crisp whites with soothing aqua blue accents. This charming Palm Springs bungalow was completely updated in 2010. The Lodge property was totally updated in 2012 with an all new kitchen and new bathrooms.

The Lodge has a spacious eat-in kitchen for preparing your meals, in addition to a complete galley kitchen at The Cottage, which features gleaming new stainless appliances. And there are two gas grills on premises if you're in the mood for BBQ!

The sleeping arrangements are ideally situated for maximum privacy. The Lodge sleeps 6, including a large master suite with King bed, walk-in closet, private bath with a splendid sunken tub and shower. Two additional bedrooms, one with a king bed and one with a queen, and 1.5 baths make up a second wing,

The Cottage sleeps up to 7 guests; in addition to a King and a Queen bedroom, the Twin bedroom sleeps up to 3 persons , with two Twins plus a trundle bed. The two updated baths offer fresh new tile, new pedestal sinks and other all-new facilities.

The 7th & 8th bedrooms are located in The Cabana, adjacent to the quiet pool. One bedroom has a King bed and sleeper sofa, the second cabana bedroom has two twin beds (and must be accessed via the first cabana bedroom). The two cabana bedrooms are connected and share direct (yet private) access to the bathroom.

The property has plenty of parking, and in Winter mature orange and grapefruit trees provides delicious fruit.

Enjoy the relaxing warmth of the sun-filled rooms, splendid mountain views, energizing colors, soaring palm trees and two pools and spas. Make California Way your destination for an idyllic Palm Springs holiday, vacation, reunion or celebration!

The Palm Springs California Way property is a combination of two side-by-side privately owned properties on one lot, with three separate buildings; the properties also can be rented separately/individually. The Lodge is the largest of the properties, also called California Contemporary. The Poolside Cottage is a charming and bright and open caretaker's cottage. The Pool House is the pool house to the California Contemporary property. All three are owned by the same family and are newly available for rent in combination as of 2011.

Palm Springs Before The Rings

"Loved this place!!! We plan to go back!! It is large and slept 16 without a problem. Having 2 pools was wonderful!! the only issues we had was the pool heathers. At one point they would not shut off making the pool extremely hot. Also the spa in the cold plunge pool did not work our whole stay even though we requested maintenance on it (and were told it was scheduled). They did fix the pool heather in the bigger pool. Don't let that stop you from renting the place, just double check on it prior to going. I plan to rent this place again and again! It was wonderful. Plenty of towels and linens. Very comfortable. Nate and Gerald were WONDERFUL!!! I cannot say enough about how accommodating they were. "

Awesome Classic 60's Pad!

"The houses were close enough to make going back and forth fun but far enough apart to allow for quiet time too. Everyone loved the decor and simplicity of design. The kitchen were well stocked with everything we needed to cook a huge breakfast on Sunday. Even though it was record heat for July, 122 degrees, we stayed cool in the pools and inside the big living room in the afternoon. Portia made all the arrangements perfectly and we had no issues with anything. "

Desert Paradise

"This beautiful compound is a wonderful place to reunite with your loved ones. The layout of the 3 houses makes for a perfect vacation for a large group with plenty of areas to be all together or sneak away and have some alone time. My 16 friends had the most amazing 'family reunion' and can't wait to do it again next year! Overall everyone that I had contact with at Vacation Palm Springs was very pleasant, helpful and considerate of our privacy. We had some issues with the pool equipment and internet not working but the management team went out of their way to repair the pool so that our vacation wasn't ruined. "

Retro Fun For A Large Group Of Family And Friends.

"The experience was great. The property was large enough to host our group of 20 comfortably. The cottage was very charming, cozy, clean and updated. Our favorite house on the property. The main house was very spacious and had a fantastic kitchen to cook for entire party. Everyone at Vacation Palm Springs was extremely helpful. "

by Gina R. | Encino CA | January 02, 2013

Great Space For Family Fun

"The houses were great sizes and loved having two pools. We had 15 people and more than enough space! All houses are fully equipped with everything we needed. We brought a pool volleyball net, and it was key! Everyone was very accommodating and helpful! "

by Asha H. | San Luis Obispo CA | August 19, 2012

Relaxing Family Vacation

"The property was clean and spacious. I believe it was described well on the internet so we knew what to expect. It is an ideal location for a family vacation. There is enough space for everyone to be able to get some peace and quiet when needed. The home was well equipped and very comfortable. I think the property was great. There were plenty of blankets/sheets/towels. the only thing I can think of that we had trouble with was the internet, the toaster in the main house (which seems to be stuck in "bagel" mode) and some minor trouble with the blinds. Thank you for your feedback. We have purchased a new toaster for the main house and will have the blinds repaired-Travis in Property Management. The reservation team and property managers were all wonderful. The reservation was easy. The instructions about the property were perfect and the property managers were available when needed. A very professional team. I will rent from Vacation Palm Springs again in the future. "

Palm Springs Golf Vacation

"Each year I organize a trip of eight golfers. This year we shose Palm Springs and we stayed in an eight bedroom house offered through Vacation Palm Srpings. The house was AMAZING! Large pool, large bedrooms- each with its own bathroom. Beauthiful furniture and kitchen. Amazing service. For example, one of our golfers needed some medications. Vacation Palm Springs quickly arranged for a physician to make a house call and write a prescription. "

California Way House Review

Mid Century Compound

"This place was great! Where to start... First of all this place is very spacious. Really it is two separate properties connected by a gate. It was perfect for our large group (17 people). The common areas were large enough to accommodate all of if we wanted to be together. At the same time there were enough areas to escape to if felt like sneaking off to read a book by yourself. My favorite escape was the back porch area off the cottage. I loved having two pools although I wish we had the option of heating both of them. We hardly used the unheated pool as (despite the triple digit temps in late Sept) it was just too chilly. I loved the design of houses and they made great backdrops for our fun vacation weekend. We didn't leave the compound the entire weekend (with the exception of grocery runs) and we all big cooker so we were very thankful of the abundance of cooking utensils, etc. One of the grills may have run out of gas so def make sure they are completely filled. All in all, we had a great weekend and we really have California Way to thank. Thanks guys! I hope to make this an annual tradition so... See you next year!!! The only issue we had was the internet was really spotty. We were on vacation and trying to escape the online world so it wasn't that big of a deal but it would have been nice to have reliable internet. Also, the cabana wasn't what we expected. Perhaps a floor plan would have helped. I didn't like that you had to walk through one bed room in order to get to another bedroom. Really it should be set up as a one bedroom with a living room area. Our guests were flexible so it wasn't that big of a deal but it would have been nice to know beforehand. When we arrived there had just been a big wind and lightening storm so the pool / property was understandably disheveled. Also, we had no idea how to turn on the heat for the pool, etc. And we could couldn't figure out the internet. One quick phone call and someone was over to help us within ten minutes. Great service. "

Barbie's Dream House

"The property was fantastic and perfect for our bachelorette party weekend. All of the decor in each of the houses was incredible! Everyone commented on how it was like we were staying at the "New" barbie's dream house. So much fun and beautiful too! LOVED the pools and especially the cottage! We loved the cottage's pool and kitchen best, although the Lodge's Living area was perfect for all of us to hang out in. Our experience was truly fantastic and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Also, it was so great to have so many dishes, platters, glasses, etc. We will definitely be renting this property again! Thank you for all the wonderful service from the reservation team and Scott too! "

by Jamie Rose P. | Ventura CA | June 12, 2011

Room For Everyone

"We had a great time at California Way! The house is very retro in decor and has everything you could need! We loved being able to use all the different areas between the three houses to play games, have meals, and hang out. We did however only use the pool in front of the cottage so we could all be together. There is more grass so you are not on the hot cement and the pool appears cleaner and nicer. "
