Located in the quiet and centrally located El Mirador neighborhood, just blocks away from the restaurants and shopping of Palm Springs' Uptown Design District, this spacious home sits on a huge gated and fenced lot with fountain courtyard entrance, raised fire pit area and one of the largest pools in our collection of homes. The home has loads of windows, sliders and French doors that keep the home light and bright and allows for easy indoor to outdoor living and entertaining.
The front gate opens up to a large palm tree fountain courtyard with front yard spaces and sidewalks leading up to the home. The front hallway allows you to pass directly into the formal living room to the left, or, to the right, head on into family room and kitchen. The formal living room opens out to the front sidewalk through double sets of French doors with a gas fireplace and plenty of room for lounging and relaxing as well as a sleeper sofa. The family room sits off the gorgeously remodeled kitchen and beside the casual indoor dining area. The family room boasts a large 60" flat screen smart TV and views of the outside pool area. The granite island kitchen includes high end stainless appliances, a refrigerated wine cooler, buffet table and a long breakfast bar area as well which seats up to four comfortably up to four.

We were very happy with our experience at this home. It was exactly what was advertised but the icing on the cake was the service we received from the management company and staff; prompt responses and resolutions all the way to great restaurant recommendations. Thanks for a great vacation! Original post date 11/18/18- Pam , Posted: 8/14/2023
Great home and Location!
Great Property in a great location The house and property were large, clean and well maintained. Property manager was very easy to work with. The only reason Im not rating this a 5 is that the kitchen was not that well equipped and the master bathroom was very small and oddly configured.

We had a wonderful time here. The outdoor area was amazing with the best part being the pool! The manager was very helpful. Original post date 5/7/20- Julie , Posted: 8/14/2023
Great place. Easy communication with host. Great amenities. Really good for four guests (ideally two couples), it gets tough if you're going to go above that. Hosts were really accommodating with pet. Fun time, you won't regret it. Original Post date 7/23/20- Abdo John , Posted: 8/14/2023

Lovely and Quiet
Love the open concept of kitchen/TV area. It was clean inside but could have used some sweeping and outside furniture cleaning. Good area to downtown Palm Springs. Hospital is nearby so you do hear the sirens and helicopters. Neighborhood is quiet, so if you want to party, this is not the house for you.

Definitely Coming Back!
We had an amazing time at this property. The property management company was so easy to work with, communicative but not gave you your privacy. We mostly used the living room, bedroom, kitchen and outside. What a great pool! The master bath has a significant step down that we didnt trust ourselves with either at night or after a few cocktails so we used the hallway and spare bedroom bathrooms, both were beautiful. Would definitely stay here again. Date of arrival - September 20, 2020 Original post date 11/6/20- Samantha , Posted: 8/14/2023
Beautiful house and property. The home given it's impressive sq. ft. footprint, has only two bedrooms. Master (KIng) was perfect with a sitting area, on-suite bath and access to the laundry room and back patio. The second bedroom (Queen) was a smaller but but also had an on-suite bath. The reason I raise this is it's a perfect home for two couples. It would not accommodate a larger party. With only two couples the overall expanse of the house and property made it wonderfully luxurious. We will definitely be back! Original postdate 11/18/20- Kevyn , Posted: 8/14/2023
What a great spot to land in Palm Springs. Would highly recommend it for longer stays and our dog loved it has much as we did. We spend most of our time at the house, without leaving a great deal. Perfect spot for neighborhood walks and biking around town. The pool is perfection! Date of arrival - November 1, 2020- Lori , Posted: 8/14/2023

Beautiful Home The house and yards are beautiful. It looks exactly like the pictures. For a quiet, relaxing, weekend this is the place to stay. We absolutely loved it and would definitely stay here again. Original post date 6/2/21- Jill , Posted: 8/14/2023
Gorgeous property! Everything was perfect! From the house to the beautiful backyard and pool area. It was the get-a-way we desperately needed. The property management team was also incredibly responsive. We had a few items come up and they were on top of it in lightning speed. We would definitely stay again!

Loved and Dog friendly!
After 15 months of shut in, we wanted a Change of scenery. And a pool. Beautiful home, and perfect shallow pool to cool off in. We loved it - and our dogs had room to run. All left happy and relaxed. Original post date 7/20/21- Julie , Posted: 8/14/2023
The home is exactly as shown in the pictures and in a lovely location. The pool was terrific with a nice shallow shelf with holes for umbrellas. There was so much outdoor seating; my favorite was to look at the mountain range from beside the pool in the late evening - just gorgeous. The other homes were close but the walls and high shrubbery allowed for great privacy. The house was well furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was really well stocked - the best we have seen. The check in and out were very easy with everything done by text and phone. The management was very responsive to texts during the stay. Original post date 10/20/21- Dana , Posted: 8/14/2023
The pool and hot tub are in the most tranquil of backyards. Morning sun made coffee around the pool special. This neighborhood is sooo quiet and peaceful. A nice walk to the restaurants and shops. The property is professionally managed and the managers are very quick to respond. Original post date 12/21/22- Dave , Posted: 8/14/2023
Everything was lovely, even with the heavy rains, and a few minor issues the property management was available attentive accommodating + flexible. I could go on, but the main thing is we can't wait to stay again. Such a great experience. Thank you.- Melissa , Posted: 8/14/2023
Palm Springs - weekend get away The property met all of our expectations. We enjoyed the pool and spa, the fire pit and the location. It was a wonderful trip and the home was a delight. Original post date 2/15/22- Nora , Posted: 8/14/2023
Great Vacation Home
We had a wonderful and seamless experience from the moment of check-in until check-out. The house is very clean, tidy, and has all the essentials you need. Plenty of dishes, pots, pans, and utensils for cooking and barbequing. We LOVED the pool/spa area and spent most of our time there. There are pool floaties/noodles/etc. and pool towels provided, all you need is your suit! The location of the house is perfect, about a 5-minute drive to the downtown area where all the shops and restaurants are. Rob was an amazing host and quick to respond to any questions we had. He provided us with an app/link that explained things about the house, how to check in/out, restaurant recommendations, things to do, etc. and it was SO helpful! In past VRBO stays we have been provided with a book or binder which is helpful but not easy to access when you are out and about and not at physically at the house. We loved being able to check out the link wherever we were. I cannot say enough good things about our stay, look no further for your Palm Springs vacation home!

What a beautiful property this is. My husband and I stayed here for a week and it was incredible. Nice and clean, plenty of towels, and very comfortable. We really spread out, enjoying all of the outside sitting areas to the fullest. The pictures don't do it justice! The kitchen was stocked with plenty of cookware, utensils, etc. Rob from the management company was quite quick to respond to questions that we had here and there. He was lovely to come and quickly walk us through the house upon our arrival as well. There are lemon and grapefruit trees in the yard that Rob said were ok to pick. I have never had fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and WOW. Really added to the ambiance of having breakfast al fresco. The only con would be the beds. The master suite bed was very uncomfortable. You can feel the springs through the mattress and it's quite uncomfortable. A mattress pad could help make it more comfortable. We woke up with sore backs so ended up sleeping in the smaller bedroom though that bed was very soft and provided no support. I truly can't recommend this place enough. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The house, its amenities, and location worked perfect for us. The pool, spa, and fire pit are fantastic with no power lines interrupting your views; all this added the quality of our stay. The house has a nice layout giving us separate spaces to enjoy throughout our stay. We enjoy this part of town because it gives us access to the north design district. We biked and walked everywhere. When we drove, the location gave us great access to easily get around. The home is an older home, but is great value compared to those more recently renovated or built. We enjoyed the property so much that we have already booked it for next year. Original Post Date 4/21/22- John , Posted: 8/14/2023
Great Weekend Getaway!!!
We loved the place and the proximity to all the excellent restaurants, especially El Patron on the strip!!!
The only drawback is the inability to play ANY music even at a sound level below the sound of the pool water feature...not their fault... a great place overall.- Anonymous from Montrose, Posted: 7/18/2023
