Guest Reviews for this Palm Springs Vacation Home

We Loved Our Stay...

"We Loved our Stay... This was our second time to stay at this lovely mid-century modern masterpiece of a property. Just minutes away from the airport, the Las Palmas Vista home is surrounded by a collection of restored homes of famous celebrities of the past. The property is beautifully landscaped, richly appointed, and has a fabulous new pool and hot tub. We especially enjoyed grilling outside and dining by poolside. Each morning as we stepped outside to enjoy our first cup of coffee, we were greeted by the majestic view of mountains that reflected the rising sun. The spacious living room with gas fireplace was a delightful spot to enjoy conversation with friends and the crisp evening temperatures. We can truly say we got some of the best sleep we have had in awhile in our comfortable bedroom. We took several walks into town during our stay and found the shops to be very special. Everything is convenient—from going to the grocery store, dining at a variety of restaurants, and enjoying an easy drive past the magnificent display of windmills to visit Joshua Tree National Park. A special time indeed! "

Las Palmas Hideaway

"Las Palmas Hideaway We loved the pool, Mountain View’s and location. This house was private yet close to downtown Palm Springs. It had all the space needed for our group of four couples. Kitchen was well stocked with all we needed "

Good Location And Great Pool

"Good location and great pool This is the fourth house we've rented and although smaller than others it was nicely maintained and suited us perfectly. Located about a mile from the design district end of town it's perfect for walking for coffee or a cocktail. The pool and jacuzzi were great and for once the controls were simple to use. The property is very private, gated and surrounded by a hedge. Definitely would recommend this house "

Wonderful Escape

"We thoroughly enjoyed the house - a great place to congregate for a much needed break with some other good friends. The kids loved the pool and casita, we loved the outdoor lounge. What a lovely and restful location - gorgeous sunrises, immaculate and well-stocked with kitchen items We might have liked a few more serving spoons, wooden spoon and a later check out. All of your team were very service oriented and helpful. "

Nice Home In Great, Quiet Neighborhood

A Beautiful House And A Great Visit

"This is the second time we have stayed at the Las Palmas hideaway home and we love it. The home is very comfortable, great pool and facilities such as a hot tub. Secluded yet walking distance to town. All in all a beautiful and relaxing spot. "

by Charlene W. | New York NY | September 15, 2013

Private Paradise

"We were invited by dear friends to stay at the Private Las Palmas Hideaway. What a wonderful experience in such a luxurious and well appointed home in an established upscale neighborhood. We loved the pool and spent lots of time enjoying the outdoor seating, dining, and grilling areas. The kitchen was spacious and had everything we needed to prepare meals. The location was ideal and it was convenient to everything we wanted to see and do. Looking forward to our next stay! "

by David A. | Newark NJ | October 04, 2013

Lovely Home

"Great Setup. We loved the pool area and the secret seating area in the garden. Nate was great in reservations and very helpful "

by Micah P. | Los Angeles CA | July 07, 2013

Secret Gardens, Lovely Landscaping

"Well stocked house, wanting for nothing. Lots of little extras. The garden/landscaping is the best part. Lovely location, peaceful beautiful yard, very private. House is on the small compact size but we spent most of our time outside anyway. Excellent service as always from Vacation Palm Springs! "

by Dianne E. | Portland OR | March 29, 2013

Just Wonderful

"The house is aptly titled as it is very private and quiet. You really don't see another house, just the beautiful landscaping and the mountains. The Vista Las Palmas location is great in the midst of so many cool modern homes. The swimming pool is big and deep, not just a "splash pool." Spa is also large. There is a great high-end grill, that even has a rotisserie. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious, and the kitchen is well appointed. The outdoor, protected dining area is large and can easily accommodate 8 people, with nice serving areas for a buffet. Nice laundry room, also. We really enjoyed our stay. "

by Nancy N. | Chicago IL | March 03, 2013

Feels Like The Second Home You Always Wanted!

"Loved the outdoor pool area-super comfy, great mountain views, citrus trees brimming with fruit just begging to be used for mimosas. Although the main house was lovely, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the private bungalow. A real retreat! Easy dealings with Vacation Palm Springs. "

by Janice N. | San Francisco CA | February 11, 2013

Beautiful And Comfortable

"Absolutely beautiful and very comfortable Vista Las Palmas house. It was spacious, well appointed and well situated within walking distance to town. We found it to be the perfect relaxing escape - great pool and hot tub. And stunning views - we woke at dawn to see the mountains turn orange. We visited when the fruit trees were in harvest. Imagine waking up, walking to the side yard and pulling fresh grapefruit right off the tree! We will definitely return to this wonderful house in Vista Las Palmas. "

by Charlene W. | New York NY | December 31, 2012

Amazing Private Oasis

"Thank you, thank you, thank you - we thoroughly enjoyed this wondrous Palm Springs period piece oasis in the glorious, healthful desert. Having learned a bit about thoughtful, indigenous landscaping in Taos, New Mexico, I was thrilled with the great perfection surrounding your house. I discovered a new succulent every day. And that house, plus guest house are dreamscapes of architectural history. Not to mention the pool, the handsome outdoor seating and more and more.... There are more fantastic details than I could possible mention. Thank you again for an amazing metamorphosis. "

by Mary J. | Los Angeles CA | November 16, 2012

Desert Oasis

"My wife and I had the wonderful experience of spending the weekend at this oasis in the desert. The modern home with all the amenities made it so relaxing to not have to think of anything, it was already at your fingertips, and we hardly left the house! The guest house in the back was a special treat for our 8 year old to feel like she had her very own "apartment". For us the most amazing aspect of the home is the pool and the outdoor dining area. Days in the pool and dining on the patio with friends at night made this such a special weekend. We can't wait to return. "

by Marilynn T. | Los Angeles CA | December 19, 2012

The Perfect Palm Springs Getaway

"As an on the go New Yorker, I needed some serious down time and needed to get away from the stress. It's been a few years since I have visited Palm Springs, but remember how much I enjoyed my last visit. I recently spent a few days during the week between Christmas and New Years in Palm Springs at this gorgeous oasis in Vista Las Palmas. The details of this mid-century home were intimate, meticulously accented and equisitely designed. In the early morning hours, I enjoyed coffee by the beautifully landscaped pool area; late afternoons and early evenings were spent in the delicious hot tub. Inside the home, the living room fireplace was a great area to have drinks and enjoy the mountain views. At night, I stayed in the Casita. This wonderful guest bungalow is private and fully equipped with a full bathroom, mini- refrigerator, generous area space and a very comfortable Queen bed. Outside the bungalow sits a private cushioned enclosed gazebo sitting area for reflection, an afternoon nap or cocktail. Overall, this property is a must stay, for yourself, family or close group of friends. I will definitely be back. "

by Stephen B. | New York NY | December 31, 2012
