The BEST Location In Palm Springs

"We rented the Hidden Escape for a full month. The home was beautiful and perfectly located. The Team at Vacation Palm Springs was always friendly and helpful if anything came up! Anything that we needed help with was immediately addressed and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Palm Springs - it was the perfect house with the perfect team at Vacation Palm Springs. We were in Palm Springs for the birth of our twins at Desert Regional and working with you guys was so easy that we never worried about the home or our stay - we could focus on our new little beautiful babies! The entire team was A+ Excellent "

Palm Springs Jewel In Movie Colony

"We loved this house in Movie Colony. The kitchen was a dream with a butler pantry and every gadget a cook might want. After preparing or bringing that meal move to one of the covered outside dining areas depending on the view you want: mountains? Then the backyard fireplace sedans would be perfect. Or maybe poolside as the cool breeze provides great comfort. Both areas are surrounded in greenery providing great birding. We had several hummingbirds visit us regularly. The house is very clean and modern, the "hidden bedroom" is a cool, quiet, dark oasis for a perfect afternoon nap. You feel very secure in your gated home. The pool is wonderful and throughout the day there is sun and shade. Frankly, it is hard to leave this house to go and enjoy all the things Palm Springs offers. It is in a quiet neighborhood and frankly we could ask for nothing more other to let us know if the owner ever wants to sell! We needed a code for the gate and it was provided promptly by the staff. Then we needed to find the location "on a tree" of the keypad to open the gate...again the staff was very helpful. "
