More intimate than a hotel and more sophisticated than a typical vacation rental, Thirteen Palms is a private, versatile property in the heart of Palm Springs that lets you fashion your stay in the desert to be whatever you want it to be: a weekend respite from the city; a month-long retreat with or without friends; the perfect setting for your birthday, wedding, or other special event; or home base for your group during one of Palm Springs’ many events.
Created specifically to exist in harmony with the desert, Thirteen Palms offers expansive privacy, with five fully furnished flats wrapped around an intimate courtya...rd, tranquil pool with in-ground spa, and lush cactus gardens. The flats are available separately, or rent the entire property for seven bedrooms that comfortably sleep 14.
Enjoy dramatic views of the San Jacinto Mountains from any of the units, in which rich materials inspired by Mexican haciendas create a warm, modern environment for relaxing and socializing. Tiled patios, courtyard conversation areas, a BBQ grille, and plenty of poolside lounges provide serene outdoor living with numerous options for sunny days and warm nights.
Versatile and intimate, Thirteen Palms is perfect for retreats, off-sites, reunions, celebrations, holidays, and weekend getaways. Take an agenda-scrapping sabbatical for your soul, in an exceptional place to reconnect, recharge, and return.

Fred, his friends and the property were all amazing. I didn't think with so many people there, 18+, there was still so much room and privacy. The property was spacious, clean, well decorated and well stocked. This experience is still talked about a month after the fact and truly brought all of my friends and I even closer than before along with some crazy memories to go along with it.
We definitely will be coming back as long as you welcome us back. I know there's a possibility that there may be another similar property is the new future and definitely know that we'll be there as well.
Thank you again for everything as it was a perfect experience.

I wasn't sure about taking such a large group of people to stay at Thirteen Palms but it was a great experience. Even with such a large group of people (20+), there was still lots of extra room and no one ever felt crowded.
The kitchens were all stocked with all the necessary cooking utensils, and the property manager was available to help with any issues that came up.
I would highly recommend that you stay at Thirteen Palms.

We have found our perfect desert destination. With teenagers that we still enjoy, we are always looking for a place where we can hang out comfortably and still escape to the action without having to get make complicated plans and get in the car. Thirteen Palms is perfect. We just stayed with our family but we are making plans for a couple of stays with extended family. I'm also secretly getting a group of friends together for a cocktail-filled escape (but don't tell anyone).
I had better book before the secret is out because this place is desert dessert.

Thirteen Palms is simply wonderful! I was here for a weekend with 4 friends and it was perfect for us. Yes, we are friends of Fred's, but we're all pretty particular and not necessarily about the same things. We wanted to spend time together but for some, alone time is also important and 13 Palms provides space for both. The fully stocked kitchen made it easy to prepare meals and the flats are convenient to restaurants if one prefers to eat out. I love and appreciate crisp white linens and thick towels, check and check! The hot-tub is spacious and well, hot! There is also free wi-fi and a super fast bbq grill.
Bottom line, if I didn't know Fred I'd still love Thirteen Palms!! Read more
Thanks! Glad to know I can please my most discerning of friends! Hope to see you again soon.

This place has a great vibe ... super cool style, private pool area with a view, wonderfully comfortable beds (love the duvets!), ipod docs for music and charging, plus enough pots and pans in the kitchen to actually cook if you feel like it. Everything is newly renovated, and they really did it up right. Loved it! Read more
It was great having you and your friends here Jami. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.

My partner and I were one of the first clients at Thirteen Palms. The accommodations were superb, the grounds were lovely and comfortable. Service was attentive. The rooms were appointed just right and had all of the comforts of home. I will definitely stay again and recommend to my friends.

Palm Springs is one of my favorite places on earth, and I've had so many great experiences there that my standards are high for anyplace new I stay - it has much to live up to. But this place certainly did that, and then some.
I stayed here for 5 nights over Thanksgiving and was very impressed. There are five units that surround a nice-sized pool/hot tub and lots of gorgeous vegetation around. You can socialize around the pool or retire to your own space for a nap - whatever you're in the mood for. I found it to be the perfect blend of social/private. I like how you can see the mountains from anyplace you sit, and how you can really open up the units to the outside with open shades and screened windows. It connects you to the outside even if you feel like staying inside out of the sun. We left the front door open to our unit most days, just to make that connection even stronger.
My favorite part was the original Mexican tiles all over the property, inside and out. So beautiful. And the colors of all the decor aren't the typical pastel or the overly-bright "Ah! My eyes!" stuff you often see in PS. Muted yet vibrant -- if that makes sense. Not sure how they do that. I also liked the fact that the bedrooms are in the back of the units [except the studio, but it's a studio so...]. That makes them even quieter if you do want to take a nap while others are swimming and socializing or cooking on the outdoor grille.
It's very close to downtown PS. Less than a 5-minute drive to practically anywhere in downtown PS. So easy!
Will definitely be back here. Read more
