Old Las Palmas is the 'Beverly Hills' of Palm Springs. Centrally located within a 10 minute walk of town but extremely private and quiet. Fabulous serene mountain views.
Gardening, swimming, relaxing in the magnificent gardens and saline oversized pool. World-class cactus gardens filled with fruit trees and roses.
This home was just perfect for my recent 50th birthday celebration in which family and friends from around the country joined us over the new year's holiday week in Palm Springs. The location could not be better- in the beautiful old Las Palmas neighborhood, spectacular views of the mountains from the master bedroom, and dining room, and just a short (and fun) walk past all of the shops on Palm Canyon Drive into the heart of the downtown area. The house, or rather compound, is ideally laid out for a large, muti-family unit get-together where any one or more family members can still 'get-away' from everyone else if they want to chill out, take a nap, sleep in, or generally drift in and out of the large living room, den, dining area and kitchen where we all gathered communally. All of the bedrooms had en suite bathrooms and the guest bedroom suites off of the courtyard were particularly stunning- the largest being ideal for parents in the bedroom and then children (or related close family members) next door with the huge adjoining bathroom between them. The outdoor area is also beautiful with plenty of room for all to sun and dine outdoors and the cactus gardens and fruit trees were so nice (we had enough delicious fresh grapefruit every morning to feed the whole clan!). The owners could not have been more lovely and gracious throughout the entire rental experience and the property manager who checked us in and out was also so pleasant and professional. Really, I cannot think of enough positive things to say. We will definitely try to rent this property again - it was a delight.
This property and its amenities were exceptional. Our family of 14 (10 from Canada) gathered here for Christmas and had the best time. As past reviewers have said, it felt like home and there wasn't much need to venture out. Our kids spent the entire week in the beautiful pool, picked fresh fruit from the trees in the yard, occupied themselves in the games room and didn't say "I'm bored" even once. With such a large number of people we loved that we each had our own beautiful room, each as good as the next. If we needed a quiet moment there was no lack of space to find it. The large dining area let us all sit comfortably for dinner to enjoy being together as a family. Thanks to the wonderful owner, even a Christmas tree was up when we arrived. We enjoyed meeting the Property Manager who was excellent and the garden and pool staff who were friendly and accommodating. One of our best vacations ever.
We just spent our third week-long stay here with our entire family and we plan to return in 2015. The location is the best in the Palm Springs area (close enough to the airport, and walking to great restaurants and anything else that downtown Palm Springs has to offer). However, we are so comfortable "at home" that we never go out for dinners! The kitchen is well-equipped and suitable for our large family. The house is always super clean and well-cared for by its owner, the house manager and the pool/maintenance/everything person Jose. There have been so many extras that we have never found in other vacation rental houses. The common areas and wide open pool area with quiet shaded lounge area at one end make this a perfect place for a large number of people. There is always somewhere to go if you want to get away from the others (conference calls, quiet reading, etc) and the common spaces are so large that it never feels crowded even if all the bedrooms are filled. Hugh, please keep your beautiful home available for our family every year!
We stayed here last year for our spring break trip and loved it so much we returned this year! There are were 10 of us - 4 adults and 6 children. It is a beautiful estate with amazing landscaping. It feels like a true get away, yet it is an easy walk to downtown. The sunset over the mountains was worth watching everyday from the pool. It was immaculate on our arrival. The pool area is well laid out for sun and shade. There is plenty of space so we could all gather together or find a quiet spot if we wanted to. I would highly recommend this property. The owner and property manager were great to work with for the rentals.
location is great. outdoor and indoor space is just as good as it looks on line. very comfortable for our large group of 6 couples.
Casa Aguila is truly a gem. This is the perfect house for a large family with each of 6 true bedrooms having an ensuite bath and a 7th bedroom attached. The common space is fabulous as is the outdoor and pool area. The house is immaculate with a fully equipped kitchen and enough table space for a large group to have all their meals together. We treasure this and can't wait to return. Our grown kids say that they now wait to return each year with such anticipation. The owner and house manager are responsive and wonderful to deal with. The location is about as perfect as it gets being only 10 minutes from the airport and a block from Palm Canyon!
