Villa Carmelita was originally owned by film star Joseph Cotton, and served as retreat and playground to countless Hollywood luminaries such as Natalie Wood, Lloyd Bridges, George Montgomery, Robert Taylor, Johnny Mercer, Kirk Douglas, and many more. And, it was a love-nest for Sonny and Cher!

Villa Carmelita features tranquil fountains in the entry courtyard and the side yard, a grand staircase, handmade terra cotta floors, custom spa-like bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, striking design elements and grandly scaled rooms.

This dramatic showplace is a totally private compound featuring walls of glass that open to a spectacular pool courtyard with an outdoor living room and fireplace to create the ultimate entertainment setting.

Villa Carmelita is perfect for an indulgent getaway, photo shoots, and families as it is perfect for a quiet, rejuvenating and luxurious getaway in high style.

Star Pedigree: The Old Mesa neighborhood is one of Palm Springs oldest and most exclusive communities. Many celebrities from the past and present know this beautiful area nestled up against the mountains Directly next door you will find the Mercer House, a tennis estate owned by songwriter Johnny Mercer. At the end of the street the famous 'Boathouse' is owned by fashion designer Trina Turk.

Nearby you will find a cute spanish bungalow built by Rudolph Valentino and later owned by Esther Williams. Two streets over in the other direction high up on a hill visible from the kitchen window is the Barry Manilow mansion. Near that is a huge compound owned by Suzanne Sommers.

Honestly, one of the best stays we've ever had in Palm Springs. The location was conveniently located near downtown. The house was super clean, spacious and well appointed. We had a fantastic stay and enjoyed our New Years Eve by the outdoor fireplace. Would be back in a second!

The home was beautiful and had every amenity you could want or ask. We had a catered dinner on Friday evening and the caterer was blown away by how little he really had to bring. We really loved Villa Carmelita and will return next year for sure. Its almost like an adventure now to experience other homes with Vacation Palm Springs
