Our goal at that Cottonwood is to create a relaxed, comfortable, unhurried atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy the sun, and peaceful beauty of Palm Springs and the desert. We found a small, overlooked mid century apartment building and transformed it into a private, peaceful, stylish vacation rental property.
We are located at the north end of the El Mirador neighborhood in central Palm Springs, just a short walk or bike ride to the famed Movie Colony and Old Las Palmas neighborhoods; home to the Hollywood stars of yesteryear and today. Downtown is approximately 1.5 miles or a 15-minute walk, 7 minutes by bike.
What sets us apart at the Cottonwood is the fact that we have 4 completely separate units. The units form a “U” shape around a kidney shaped pool. There are vast common areas to enjoy the group, but you are afforded the convenience of separate units in which to escapee to if you choose. Each unit is equipped with it's own bath and full kitchen. This makes the Cottonwood a perfect spot for groups of friends, family etc.
The 4 units are comprised of 2 one bedrooms with 700 square feet, living room, dining room, bedroom with king bed, full bath and full kitchen; 2 studios with 300 square feet, bedroom with queen bed, bathroom with shower stall and full kitchen. All are fully stocked with linens, towels, dishes, etc.
We pride ourselves on having a clean, modern, well thought out property. We have attempted to include amenities you might find at other more expensive locations, like free bikes for guest use, a heated pool, wi-fi throughout and wired Internet in all units. There are 42” flat screen smart televisions with satellite, Netflix and premium channels like HBO etc. in our larger units. We have 32” smart tvs in the studios and 32” flat screens in the bedrooms of the larger units. You'll even find real artwork on the walls!
We have Culligan filtered water throughout at the tap. There are 2 free parking spaces for each unit, 8 total. Soaps, paper products and fully stocked kitchens with coffee makers, teakettles, microwave ovens, dishes and cookware as well as full size appliances are provided.
We include a “starter” coffee and tea kit as well as a bottle of wine to welcome you so you can just relax for a while when you first arrive. The air conditioning/heat and pool heater (when applicable) are turned on before you arrive so you can start the relaxation the moment you walk through the gate.
Additional kitchen items, like a blender and bean grinder, etc. are available for shared use in the storage shed. You'll also find irons and ironing boards there.
All rooms open to the beautiful, heated, kidney shaped swimming pool with spectacular mountain views. The large lot is desert landscaped and well lit at night. The entire property is privacy fenced with a locked gate in the front, creating a completely private oasis of Zen.
You won't find a front desk at the Cottonwood. We are small, hands off sort of vacation experience. Management is close by and will quickly respond to any issue, we are just a text or a phone call away. We believe that you come to Palm Springs to relax, not be watched over by staff. We do visit most days to spruce up the pool and the exterior and to make sure that everything is great for your stay.
It is important to note that The Cottonwood is not a "party" house, but rather a peaceful, quiet place for groups to vacation together. We do not have any outdoor music and cannot allow any amplification of music outdoors by city ordinance and out of respect for our neighbors as well as our guests.
At this time the Cottonwood is an adult only, non-smoking, no pets allowed facility, but when renting the entire complex, children and pets are considered.
Laundry facilities are available for all that stay longer than 4 days.
