“We loved this house”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2013

We loved our stay. First---We have stayed at a number of homes and condos in Palm Springs and most we have stayed at are unique and interesting. With this home, our group had a blast...a great party home and great for a single couple or group or a family. There were three separate master bedrooms, each with a king bed, and each offered something different--one had a fireplace and opening onto a deck, one had a great view and a wild bathroom, one had a bigger room and more privacy and opened onto a jacuzzi. We planned to go out more at night, but we found we stayed at the house. We did a number of bbq nights out on the deck, and the house had a number of different "destinations" that were private so that each of us (three couples) had somewhere private to go to when we weren't doing something together (at the very private pool, at the hammock under the deck, on the deck overlooking the city, at the jacuzzi). No, the kitchen wasn't huge---but I don't think they built it as such (to my recollection homes build in PS during that period of time were smaller and a lot of catering was done)---but it was fine for our needs (six of us and we made great meals each day). Each bedroom had a large screen TV with preprogrammed shows you could quickly call up--they have an early feed of East Coast networks--don't ask me how), so all shows could be watched 3 hours earlier) hence NBC Nightly News could be viewed at 3:30PM, or Saturday Night Live could be seen at 8:30PM). There was also a TV in the kitchen and in one of the bedrooms. The pool (with a diving board) was great and we spent most of our days there...and I saw something about the pool chairs not being great but they obviously must have been redone since then as everything is new. This is a mid century modern home, and the home was nestled against a great hillside and had a fantastic view from the desk as it was not nestled on the flatlands. Bottom line, we loved it, and will go back.

“Cool House”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2010

The house was accurately described by the rental agency. It was clean and well kept and our family really enjoyed our stay there. Palm Springs Rental were great. They even mailed back my daughter's cell phone that she left behind [thanks Ian!]. I would reccomend the property to others.

“Mellow Mid-Century Magic”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2010

We've stayed here two years running for Coachella - sure the kitchen is small and gorgeous original, mid-century fixtures and applicances but if your idea of a "swank" place is granite countertops then move on., This place is magical, it can tell some stories and because of that stories are made here - the upstairs balcony is perfect for grilling and watching the sun set over the San Jacinto mountains. The architecture and the landscaping ensure total privacy and quiet - sure it could have outdoor speakers, etc. but we have absolutely no complaints. We love the history of the place, the location and the vibe.

“A tri family experience”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2010

Over all, our review is positive, from check in to check out. The extra expenses were unexpected, even if they were mentioned, making the over all cost, almost a turn off. This property did allow the space and comfort needed for a great vacation however.

“Las Palmas Key 11”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2009

We actually ended up staying at Key #11 the Las Palmas residence. It was absolutely awesome!!! It exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to stay there again. Thank you!

“Wonderful House, great pool!”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2009

The house was fantastic. Also, the staff at the rental site was great. I was running late and they were very accomidating. The view from the living room is beautiful and one of the bedrooms has a fireplace...very cozy! This is a great place for a weekend getaway for 2 or for a few couples to spend some time. The light switches are all in the floor which is very unique. (Due to Howard Hughes fear of germs I think) The driveway is steep, which was the only difficult part. If you have an SUV or very large car, you may need to park on the street, but that worked just fine for us.

“In the hills”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2009

Nice home... Small kitchen and some appliances do not work when either BBQ is on.


Reviewed 5 Feb 2009

This truly is a hideaway. If you want privacy it's here. But if you're looking for real luxury, this isn't the place. Furnishings are adequate (except for the pool loungers that were falling apart), but other things aren't the greatest, like sliding doors that won't completely close (or truly lock--security concern), very small dated kitchen, an awkward metal spiral staircase to access the master bedroom, and a bedroom with awesome views that doesn't really have a door. Yes, the views from the house are incredible. Pool is very nice size. So, a mixed bag. Might be best for a weekend, but not an extended stay.

“Fun B-day Party Weekend”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2009

I rented this vacation home for the weekend for my brother's 28th birthday. We invited some friends to stay with us and had a great time. It was the perfect place to bbq, have drinks, lie in the sun and hang out. We really enjoyed our time there and the mid century modern decor was also a plus.

“Can we move in permanently?”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2009

My husband & I were intrigued by the pictures, and the star-studded list of previous owners. We found the house to be surprisingly homey, and absolutely perfect in every way. The furnishing are wonderful, but the decks, backyard & pool areas make the house! Not to mention all the wildlife, the night-time view of downtown and the mountains. We cannot wait to return!
