Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Palm Springs - House 2151, Casa de Papagayos

3 Bedrooms And The Best Views In Palm Springs, Inside Or Out!

Pristinely located in a quiet, residential cul-de-sac in the center of Palm Springs, this home was designed to model some of the most luxurious boutique hotels in the world, and you feel it when you stay here. Originally built as a contemporary Spanish, the house has been 100% rebuilt by the renowned LA firm Saxony Design Build. Now a rustic-modern retreat, there are touches of the desert and Palm Springs Spanish heritage throughout, as well as the contemporary edge we expect in this particular city. The interior of the house has soaring ceilings highlighted by knotty alder beams, rustic doors, Portuguese limestone flooring, a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with Viking & Bertazzoni appliances, custom made furnishings, and spa-like marble and limestone bathrooms. The entire home inside and out is configured with the Sonos sound system, which you can control wirelessly through your phone/ipad or directly connect your ipod. For those cool desert nights, there is a cozy fireplace in the great room and for those warm days the back of the house is filled with french doors leading to your own private oasis outside.

The yard consists of a brand new salt-water swimming pool and Egyptian glass tiled spa. There are multiple seating and lounging areas outdoors including dining for 8, a shaded outside living room, a tiki hut for cocktails or cigars, poolside chaises for 4, and relaxing loungers around a custom carved firepit from Mexico. All of this is surrounded by the breathtaking mountain views & California fan palms and topped off with a mist system to keep you cool under the desert sun.

Being a bit farther away from the mountain is key to the success of the outdoor spaces in the house; you get almost an extra hour of sunlight (and sunsets) during the day as compared to the homes close to downtown (and those huge mountains)!

The larger bedrooms have televisions with a full cable package and BlueRay/DVD player, as does the great room. Each room has a ceiling fan and luxurious Egyptian cotton linens. The smaller bedroom has two twin beds, and all rooms have large closets. There is an elegant round dining table that seats 8 for interior dining or game night. The breakfast bar in the kitchen seats 4 atop the striking quartz countertops and glass backsplash, and there is a high capacity washer and dryer just off the side entrance in the garage.

The attention to detail in this home is like no other available on the vacation rental market in Palm Springs; you will never stay anywhere else after a night in this spectacular space.

The easiest way to book the house is through the 'Book It' button to the right. You can also get an exact quote by clicking 'Get Instant Quote' (VRBO) or 'Detailed Price' (HomeAway). These quotes always include the cleaning fee and security deposit, but do not include pool heating.

Participate locally: If you arrive by Thursday, the Palm Springs' downtown area 'Village Fest' on Palm Canyon Drive is transformed into a bustling street fair...Artists, craftsmen, food vendors, musicians and entertainers are there to entertain. Stock up on local farm veggies/fruit or enjoy some great people watching.

Also experience, on Friday from 4pm to 9pm, 'First Friday On North Palm Canyon' (every month, year-round), between Tachevah and Amado Road, featuring entertainment, food and fun, where more than 50 antique furnishings and art stores remain open into the late evening.

About Joshua Cain

Saxony is a luxury Design Build firm located in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, California. They specialize in high end new construction and large remodels, and have completed many homes around the Southern California area, Hawaii, Costa Rica, and several in Palm Springs. This is the only property in California available as a vacation rental

Joshua Cain purchased this house in 2012

Why Joshua Cain chose Palm Springs

After looking at over 60 homes in the desert, House 2151 was the one. It was a dilapidated mess, but the back yard and the view sold the home immediately. After one year and an extensive renovation and full remodel, this house is now the jewel that it always could have been.

What makes this house unique

Being a bit farther away from the mountain is key to the success of the outdoor spaces in the house; you get almost an extra hour of sunlight (and sunsets) during the day as compared to the homes close to downtown.

Rarely is a house like this available as rental; its heaven.

Luxurious style and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be more perfect! The home is the best combination of comfort and style and the yard/pool/hot tub is beyond incredible. Our biggest dilemma was how to enjoy all of it in 5 days. As far as using the house as home base, the location couldn't be more convenient to the aerial tramway, the airport, great restaurants, water park, etc. But the house is so lovely, it makes leaving tough. Josh was great to deal with for booking and planning our trip, as well as providing recommendations for dining. For our family of five, there is really no reason to stay anywhere else when headed down to Palm Springs.

Great House and backyard

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Yard, pool, hot tub and fire area was gorgeous.We loved spending time in the backyard. It was beautiful in the evening and we had breakfast on the big dining room table outside every morning! We stayed for one week with our parents and three year old. We were 20 minute walk from the city park and a quick drive to downtown. The house is really nice and well stocked. Josh gave us excellent recommendations for places to eat and things to do!

Luxury Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We did a ladies weekend at this house and it was absolutely amazing! The owner was prompt in responding to any questions we had prior to our arrival and gave us wonderful suggestions for dining, shopping and attractions. When we walked in the front door (even though I had seen the pics) it was beautiful! It is actually much more spacious than it appears in the pictures. We had 6 women and all of our luggage and sunhats - kaftans the entire bit and there was plenty of room all of the time. We all 6 cooked in the kitchen on our first night and that really says a lot for the size of the kitchen! The place is very well decorated and extremely functional. Having the sound system wired inside and out and blue-tooth synced to your phone was fabulous. The absolute best part was the backyard, I can't say enough about how great it was. He has thought of everything. There is wonderful patio furniture that includes 4 chase lounges for sun bathing, a couch and two big comfy chairs with a table in the middle for hanging pool side, a tiki hut (with 4 chairs) where we did breakfast most mornings and 6 more chairs around a fire-pit imported from Mexico! All of that to enjoy the saltwater pool and Egyptian tiled spa AND the views of the mountains with the most gorgeous layout of palm trees. Did I mention there is a dining room table outside that probably seats 10? I love this house and I will only stay here when I come back. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review! I'm so glad you all had a wonderful trip; we love being able to share our little slice of heaven in the desert with others... look forward to having you back anytime!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house with 3 little girls and 2 other moms for a cheer competition in Palm Springs and this house was our oasis from the crazy! I loved the decor; even the pool towels were monogrammed, and the technology in the house was fantastic - from the door lock system to the sonos. The outdoor space is amazing too with a pool and lots of great little spots to just hang out. We've already booked it for another vacation and can't wait to go back!
