We spent many weeks trying to find the right vacation rental for our family of 5, and were so pleased with this home, that we look forward to returning.
Cleanliness: This home and property are very clean and well kept. All areas, inside and out, are tidy and organized. Linens/towels were clean and like new.
Quality: Throughout the home are high quality mid century pieces, lovely artwork and unique furniture. Beds and bedding are very comfortable. Kitchen utensils, flatware, glassware, cookware and small appliances are plentiful and a good quality. All the items you would need are available as the owners have thought of everything. It's evident they care for and maintain their home.
Location: The neighborhood is absolutely beautiful! Very quiet and peaceful. The view of the mountains is lovely. We felt very safe and were close to all amenities.
The House and Yard: We very much enjoyed the fact this home was built by the alexander Construction Company. The design is lovely and there is a connection to the outdoors because of the layout and the abundance of windows. Renovations and decorating are simple and stylish and compliment the original design. We would highly recommend the pool heat if staying in January.
Booking, Check-in and Check-out: Booking was simple and professional. The owner was able to answer any of our questions in advance and provide clear, organized and detailed information about our stay. The concierge who was available for check-in and check-out was professional and helpful.
We would highly recommend this vacation rental in Palm Springs. It's the type of house that makes you feel at home, and that can make all the difference when you are away on a holiday. We spent countless hours in and around the pool. It was a very relaxing and fun holiday.

This is a great house, nicely updated with a great vibe and some nice mid-century pieces. The yard is great, large and with good amounts of sun and shade and a good pool and hot tub. Plus its all very well maintained, and Bob the local contact/concierge is a great service. Thanks for a great stay!

We first stayed at Rose ave. nearly three years ago, and have been back several times since. We will be returning again at the end of this month. We love everything about the house: its location in the beautiful Las Palmas area close to the mountains and easy walking distance to downtown Palm Springs; the mid-century style of the house and its furnishings, and the view of the mountains from both inside and outside. The kitchen is particularly well equipped. The pool, hot tub and outdoor eating areas are beautiful and very private. The house has everything necessary for an enjoyable stay. We also appreciate the on-site concierge service provided by Bob Egan. We always look forward to our visit to Rose ave.
