Desert Wedding Fun
"The house was well laid out and cozy. Having all but one bedroom opening on to the pool was a great benefit. The house was clean and pool was heated. The heatter certainly was great to have on the cool nights. Gerald was great to work with prior to our arrival and was very accommodating when I secured the reservation. Everything went very smoothly from start to finish. Luckily had no need to call on the home managers during our stay since everything work perfectly. "

Paradise in Palm Springs
"Incredible layout, spacious, we weren't wanting for anything. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left we enjoyed every moment in this fantastic villa, and created some amazing memories! The communal area was extremely sociable and yet each room had it's own privacy. The pool was great and we really enjoyed the BBQ. Great location to restaurants / bars. We felt extremely secure within the gated property at all times. "
"We had a wonderful spring break vacation at the Tony Curtis Estate. The house was incredibly well laid out for our three families. We were able to eat dinner together around the beautiful table, enjoy hours in the pool, watch the stars at night, just perfect! The service we had before and during our stay was excellent. Gerald managed our booking and was prompt and courteous. We dealt with a couple of home managers who were also very prompt and responsive to our requests. we would absolutely recommend Vacation Palm Springs to a friend!!! "

Perfect Home for Family Vacation

Excellent Experience and House!
"We rented the Tony Lee Curtis estate. Everything from arrival to departure was perfect and exactly as stated in the website. Overall it was incredibly seamless. Property was great. Only issue we had was figuring out the lighting situation. "
Wonderful Residence for Family Gatherings
"Great architectural and historical features, excellent privacy, home was well laid out with private bath for each guest, quiet neighbourhood, close proximity to park for children, walking distance to many attractions including the downtown core. "
"The house is so well laid-out for groups of people. Having a bathroom per bedroom makes a huge difference, and we had a heavenly experience. The service was A+. They came when called and always fixed the problem, which was only twice. "
Nice Home, Great History.
"Great property, very clean & tidy. "
"Place was roomy and clean. Backyard was awesome and we spend a lot of time in the pool. You guys couldn't have done better :) Tawny was great. Answered all my questions. We stayed there during the fires in July and when I contacted her about getting the pool cleaned, they sent someone in the next day to clean the pool for us. "
Perfect for Groups!
"I really enjoyed it! This is a perfect house for a big group. The bedrooms were private enough and the social area (kitchen, dining table, living room, pool) had a great vibe. I would highly recommend Tony Curtis' house. The live chat was super helpful. I was able to ask questions and get answers quickly. "
Tony Curtis Estate
"This was a great rental. It had all the comforts of home and more. Perfect size for our large family. Service was excellent from both the reservation team and property managers before and during our stay. "
Tony & Janet
"Wonderful layout, felt at home. "
Perfect for Us
"The property was large enough to accommodate 10 of us. It was laid out very well, every room opened up to the pool, the kitchen and common areas were also very open, the wi-fi code was easy to find, instructions on pool and spa were very clear and located AT the switches which makes so much sense. Even shelves for wine glasses versus champagne glasses were labeled. Pretty smart for a rental house to do this! The description on the web site was a little unclear about how many it slept. I think somewhere it said 10 plus sofa bed. But I found that the sofa bed was included in the 10. "
Spacious, Clean, Relaxing
"The property was so nice and better than I expected. It was large enough for all ten girls to sleep, get ready to go out in, and cook in without stepping on toes. The backyard was incredible and so serene. I look forward o possibly staying at this home again or others like this. There weren't enough lounge chairs, I was told the pullout bed is very uncomfortable and slopes down, plus their were a few kitchen things that were missing. Overall though it was a fabulous vacation home. The team at Vacation Palm Springs was great. They got everything squared away very quickly without any frustrating waiting time. "
Beautiful Home Close to Downtown
"Location was great with plenty of access to downtown shops and restaurants. Nathan was very helpful! "
Great Entertaining Home
"Very satisfied with the home. Just as it appeared in the pictures. "
A Week at the Tony Curtis Estate
"All were excellent and always seemed to go out of their way to provide the information/assistance we needed. Great service - the best! "
Great Long Weekend Stay!
"The house was great, everything was well appointed and there were plenty of towels for everyone. We spent most of our time in the pool, which is a great size, and cooked all of our meals in the kitchen. Bedrooms were great and everyone had their own bathrooms. Also the pool had plenty of really great, comfortable lounge chairs and pool floaties to relax on. The kitchen was also great, although my only complaint was that it was an electric stove (any cook will understand my gripe with this) but they also had 2 ovens, which was pretty awesome, although cook times were longer than normal. Overall I would highly recommend, especially for the reasonable price! Cesar was really helpful in placing the reservation, thank you! "
The House Was Perfect!
"The house was perfect! Had such an open floor plan, was neat and had everything we needed! The pool outside area was perfect for the group to lounge in. The asthetic of the house was also awesome! I would stay there again! Staff was extremely helpful both before and during our stay! Yes Absoultey. I would also stay there again! "
GREAT, Very Relaxing
"We loved this rental. It was well stocked with everything we expected. The only complant would be the bungalow, it was advertised as the 5th bedroom, but the pull-out couch was so uncomfortable that it was unsleepable. My daughter and her husband had to sleep on the couchs in the living room. I was not happy paying for an extra bedroom we could not sleep in. Other than that, the house was perfect. A recommendation: Put a real bed in the bungalow. Other than that, it was a perfect stay. I spoke with both Nate and Cesar and they were over the top professsional. They were very helpful. I will diffently be back to stay again. "
"Great House! We rented the house for my best friend's Bachelorette Party. It was 10 girls and it was great! Plenty of space, great backyard, and the house really did have everything we needed as we flew from San Francisco and could obviously not bring everything we would need on a plane. Great Location and honestly a great house. Would definitely recommend to families and other groups similar to ours. Honestly, we had a great experience with no suggestions. "
"it had enough room for our group , well furnished , good location . the bungalow should have a small refrigerator in it "
Tony Curtis House
"It was a good house - baths and bedrooms were good as well as kitchen and living area. Sergio was great and very helpful. "
Awesome Place for Group Get Together!
"Renting this property thru vacation palm springs was very easy and smooth. The house was as pictured. There was 5 couples at this place and everyone was comfortable and had a great time. The house was fully stocked and had tons of linens and towels. The location was a 15min walk to downtown palm springs which was very conveinent. Loved this house and would rent again. "
Palm Springs New Year's 2012
"It easily accommodated us and my sister's family. It was in a good location - very central to the things we wanted to do. It would have been nice to have little things - like coffee filters provided for the coffee pot. Reservation process was good. We had to get the property manager out on the first night and he came promply and fixed our issues. "
Paradise in the Sun
"House was large enough for our family and well equipped. The dining table with benches was not the most comfortable or accessible for seating. (Thank you for bringing this to our attention, your suggestion has been shared with the the owner - Eric in Property Management) Service was great. We already have recommended. "
Love This House!
"From the start Sergio at Vacation Palm Springs was very helpful! The house was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub especially. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed including cocktail accessories! Overall it was an easy and relaxing experience. Thank you Vacation Palm Springs! "
Great Entertaining/vacation Home
"The house is beautiful and well appointed with everything you will need. We experienced problems with heating the pool and spa throughout our stay. Some mornings the pool would be heated after warming for the required 8 hours and other mornings it was not hot at all. Same with the spa.(Thank you for bringing this to our attention, the pool heater was repaired) We had some issues with the garbage disposal and gate in the front not closing. However, when we called on these items as well as the heater on the pool/spa a repairman came right away and replaced the garabage disposal quickly and fixed the gate. Unfortunately, heating the pool/spa is not a quick fix as it takes a long time to warm if it wasn't working properly. The reservation team was also very friendly and helpful. .(Thank you for bringing this to our attention, the pool heater was repaired) "
Mixed Experience - Beautiful Place But Had Trouble
"We liked the sunshine, big windows, the location, and the fact that it was very clean. Reservations and property managers were great. "
"We loved the Curtis Estate. Just as pictured of the website. All 10 of us had a wonderful time in the house. The team here at this company was great. Scott was very helpful. "
Wonderful Estate in a Great Location
"The estate was beyond our expectations. It was a lovely home as pictured and a perfect getaway for a group of 10. It was in a great location and offered us a beautiful venue to relax for the weekend complete with pool, hot tub and large living room/kitchen space. The lighting in the property itself was quite dim. It would be nice if there was a bit brighter lighting in the family room area where most of the guests spent their time. Other than that, the experience was fine. ( Thank you for bringing this to our attention; I have passed on your comments to the owners) Sergio was very efficient, helpful and timely. I appreciated all of his help answering my questions and processing my reservation. The property managers were wonderful as well. The house was clean and the directions were clear. Yes, Absolutely recommend this company! In fact, I hope to use this service again. I've used other rental sites (like VRBO) and haven't been successful getting replies or booking a place. Sergio was a dream and so great to work with. He made all the difference. "
Great Ladies Weekend
"Great open kitchen area. Lots of bathrooms. Big comfy pillows and very clean All the staff were very friendly and I received prompt call backs and attention when we needed it I would absolutely recommend this property and I will probably rent it again "
Great for a Family Reunion
" I loved the openness of the house and that most of the rooms opened out to the pool area. I loved the pool and hot tub. It was great having a table big enough for our entire family to sit at for meals. It was a great house for our family to all be together in one place. The reservation team and property managers were great. When we needed more supplies they promptly brought them to us. "

"
PS I Love You!
"This property is the perfect Palm Springs vactation rental for a family or for a group who want to relax. The floor plan is ideal for entertaining and relaxing. The Casita in the back is so fun! The pool & hot tub offer wonderful views. We had the best time!!!! All aspects were top notch. "
Unbelievable Holiday Escape
