In an effort to keep travelers and our workers safe, we are following recommendations to keep our homes vacant for at least 24 hours between guest stays. As well, travel or hosting restrictions constantly change and we can't always set search parameters to ensure the home fits your travel itinerary. When considering this home, please DO NOT automatically book. Rather, send us an inquiry and allow us to authorize or ensure the dates will work before booking. We thank you, in advance, for your patience and understanding. To further accommodate the appropriate time between reservations, early arrivals will be limited and there will be no late check-outs.
As part of the County Health Supervisor's restrictions on short-term lodging, extra "daytime" guests are not allowed during the Co-Vid pandemic. The only guests allowed on the property are the guests registered as overnight guests.
Following guidance from health organizations, some guest amenities will be modified per safety recommendations. I.E.: extra spices in the kitchen will limited, extra or decorative pillows and blankets will be removed, Modest changes but in favor of caution and guest safety. We have also invested in and are using an OSHA/EPA-approved, hospital-grade disinfectant on hard surfaces and high-touch areas throughout each home.
Welcome to PS Murphy! This updated 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is bright and spacious making the perfect retreat for escape or entertainment. Modern furnishings in a stylish yet soothing color palette make for a chic yet casual backdrop for your Palm Springs vacation.
Enter the living room and you’ll enjoy an open floor plan with beautiful new tile floor. With plenty of seating, everyone can enjoy an easy afternoon or perhaps an early cocktail hour before heading out to dinner. The living room flows seamlessly into the dining room so no one misses out on the action. The contemporary dining area features seating for 6 or up to 8 comfortably and is steps from the kitchen.
The well-stocked kitchen with new stainless appliances has all the tools you’ll need to make entertaining a snap. Downtown is just minutes away just in case you’d rather enjoy the city and sights of Palm Springs.
This home offers great bedroom separation and sleeping arrangements. The master bedroom, on one side of the house, is spacious and offers its own private, full bath with step-in shower. On the opposite side of the house, you’ll find 2 guest rooms: one guest room offers a king bed while the other offers 2 twin beds. These twin beds can be converted to a king with prior notice to management. Just outside each of these bedroom doors is their guest bath. It's worth noting that in the living room, the sofa actually has a pullout queen bed. Please ask management ahead of time for the bedding... they will make it available.
The backyard is almost fully decked with tons of entertaining space and plenty of covered seating, too. Outdoor dining is covered so you can maximize outdoor living both day and night. There are 4 chaise lounges to catch the rays you were seeking in Palm Springs. The outdoor kitchen will make grilling fun and the counter at the grill with bar-stool seating ensures you can bring cocktails and snacks to keep the grill master entertained. There’s a half-bath/powder room on the patio for everyone’s convenience.
Named after the owners’ charming 4-year old Yorkie, PS Murphy is an ideal getaway: comfortable, uncomplicated and suited for every age! Dog-friendly, of course! Murphy wouldn't’ have it any other way.
Please note that the maximum number of guests for a home this size is 6 (8 if the 2 additional guests are 12 years of age or younger) per Palm Springs Ordinance #1748. It should also be noted the City has sound ordinances that are strictly enforced. No outdoor amplified sound (music) at all. The owner(s) like to stress this home is ideal for a dream vacation and relaxation but is by no means a “party-central” home. Each guest is expected be as good a neighbor as the owner(s) themselves.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was clean and very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need, even for making Thanksgiving dinner. The bed linens were wonderful and there were plenty of nice, plush towels (including pool towels). It's located in a cool neighborhood in a great location. Close to several grocery stores, hiking spots, and restaurants. I would have given 5 stars but we had a problem with the hot tub/pool which wasn't resolved until the day we were leaving, so that was a bit of a bummer. But otherwise, all was good and I would recommend.

We loved this place, and the property managers were fantastic. We know all VRBO photos never live up to their promise, but this place came the closest to all the rentals we've visited. Pool and hot tub were kept at a perfect temperature, and the kids were thrilled. Very well stocked kitchen -- we were able to cook Thanksgiving dinner with ease. Good location, easy to get to everything. And lastly, we really appreciated being able to have our dog with us. We have this bookmarked for a return!

Fantastic mini vacation at PS Murphy! The property has everything you need for a fun and relaxing stay. Kids had the best time swimming in the pool all day. Outdoor bathroom was handy to keep from trekking water into the house; beds are super comfortable; house came stocked with plenty of toiletries, soap and other cleaning supplies; and property managers were always accessible. Only minor issue was water temp in spa and master shower wasn't as hot as we would've liked, but definitely would stay here again :)

The property is quiet and well equipped. We really enjoyed the pool, hot tub and the outdoor kitchen. The property could use a little bit of an update, particularly in the pool area. The outdoor patio roof leaks really bad when there is rain, which was a bit of a bummer, since you cant sit outside when its raining. The neighborhood isnt the nicest area weve stayed in PS, however, it is convenient for getting around. The managers of this place are awesome. We had a couple of issues in the beginning of our stay and they handled them immediately and were fantastic to deal with. Overall, the place was nice and quite comfortable, it could just use a little TLC.

1st time; not the last
Even the birds couldn't leave the pool. The home is spacious, well-appointed, and spotless. The outdoor space was perfect, with palm trees on the property, sun shields in just the right spaces. A++. Just what one needs, privacy, a pool, great location with easy access to food, groceries, and goodies of all flavors.

We stayed for 6 weeks and completely enjoyed the property. We never wished we were home or somewhere else. Murphy is well appointed, plenty of comfortable seating throughout all the rooms which we've found isn't always the case when renting in PS. The pool area was great; plenty of room and places to lounge around including the BEST GRILL I've ever used! Fantastic! Just great! The kitchen was very nice and well equipped with dinnerware, flatware and serving pieces. A previous renter had not done a good job cleaning up some pots and pans before they left, but there was a good selection of cooking utensils to use for cooking. Lighting throughout the property was good; we are bed readers and the master bedroom was well lit for bedtime reading; again, and surprisingly not always the case when decorators go for looks over function. Nice that we had both. But the best part of PS Murphy? The property managers at RELAX Palm Springs! So responsive! Nice guys! Gave us a thorough and worthwhile introduction to the property, the pool, the spa, inside heat, TV, etc; everything we needed to know. They bent over backwards to help us navigate flooded, washed out roads following the February rains on our arrival; turned pool heat on and off via text; good recommendation for a dentist to deal with a loose crown. Both our damage deposit and the unused portion of our heat/gas deposit were returned at the first credit card billing cycle without us having to jump through any hoops. A great property and a great property manager; I'd rent again but we've already rented a different unit from the same managers for next year for a new experience. It's nice to know that we have nothing to worry about for next year and we'll be well taken care of.

Great property, great management
We stayed here in December 2017 and loved it. The house is well maintained, with great management who did not bother us while were there and kept the pool well maintained (and warmed up). Check in was smooth - I texted back and forth with Scott when I landed at Palm Springs Airport and he showed us the lay of the land when we got there. After that, we were on our own to enjoy the property and the town. Everything we needed was available to make it a great stay.
One thing, I would say is that we thought the pool appeared slightly bigger in the photos than it actually is, but I think that's the effect of a good photographer and marketing. Not a bad thing, but just something to note. I highly recommend this house and would absolutely stay there again.

This house was perfect for our girls getaway. It had everything we needed and more. The pool area was perfect and included an outdoor half bath so you didnt have to trek through the house wet. This is a very windy part of the city so we had to clean the pool every morning but that wasnt a problem at all. The relax PS team was very responsive the whole time.

Scott did a great job creating a very comfortable, inviting 'home' experience for this visit. The neighborhood is very quiet and the stay felt very private, which was what we were looking for. The home has everything one would want to stay-in to cook and relax. The one draw-back is that the wind in this part of the city can get fairly strong in the afternoon, but otherwise for the majority of the day it wasn't a barrier for our kids to get in the water.

Outdoor living at it's finest
I love this place. My wife and I have booked this property on 3 occasions and will do so again. The house is awesome, inside and out. It's really close to downtown which makes it easy to go to dinner or out for the nightlife. It's close to several golf courses and did I mention it's 10 minutes from Costco so you can load up when you get in to town.
