About John Goins

Twelve years ago, some friends let us stay in their Palm Springs house for a long weekend. We fell in love with the city and the area! Now we have our own place and we want to share the Palm Springs experience with others. Our spirit soars every time we come to town! We hope yours will too.

John Goins purchased this house in 2012

Why John Goins chose Palm Springs

The view rocks! So does the location. We enjoy sunning by the pool, taking in the view of the mountains. We can ride bikes to the grocery store or Koffi or take a long walk through the neighborhood to the Art District. Look for the Big Dipper right above you when lounging by the pool at night.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the Chrysalis-style. We wanted the house to have that Palm Springs vibe and we still get excited whenever we arrive. It's the perfect get-away: comfortable, stylish and care-free.

There is a secret compartment at Chrysalis. See if you can find it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great home this is! We spent an extended weekend here to celebrate our friends' 25th wedding anniversary, and what a treat this home was! The mid-century modern design is impeccable - offering all of the amenities of home...and then some! The comfort in the beds rival some of the top hotels and no detail was spared - including plenty of towels and lush robes to keep us warm when we got out of the beautiful pool. This home is a must visit - I certainly look forward to visiting again! Cheers guys on a great PS home!

My husband and I are actually at this house right now. Usually I wait to get home to write a review but this place is so fabulous I have to give them KUDOS right now. The owners are super nice and professional and Mike the property manager is top notch and made sure we knew how to work the pool heat/spa and that we were happy with the house.

Outdoors spaces are great - GRILL super nice umbrellas, nice mountain views ..The pool and spa have a great view of the mountains as well with comfy lounge chairs, plenty of towels ..

Best Weekend Ever!

  • 5 out of 5
I booked Chrysalis for my bachelorette weekend and had the best time with my girlfriends! We loved the salt water pool, especially the wide stair at the pool entrance! It was really more of a lounge seat in the pool, and was perfect for us to sit and talk while still in the pool. The beds were very comfortable and the house was clean! The kitchen has everything you'd need to cook dinner! We loved using the BBQ and sitting outside in the back to eat dinner. The Jacuzzi was perfect as well - it heats up fast and we spent every night post-dinner in the Jacuzzi. The house is just a 5 min. drive from the main drag in PS which was perfect for when we wanted to leave the house (we hardly did though)! The house manager stopped by once and he was amazing - super nice and gave us some great recommendations for places to go in PS. Definitely would stay at Chrysalis again!

Great House, Great Location, Great Time

  • 5 out of 5
Chrysalis is the gold standard in resort style vacation rentals. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Every room is perfectly appointed with every convenience. The photos are surprisingly accurate. I would say the house looks even better in the evening. It was showroom clean but comfortable. The decor is inviting and relaxing. It is the perfect size. Not too big and not to small. Our group was a mix of singles and couples, but I could easily see friends/family with children enjoying their stay as much we did. It seemed designed for every taste and lifestyle. The open plan allows for wonderful group interactions, but also offers secluded seating for quiet conversations. The home has all the amenities you would expect in a 4 or 5 star hotel, but the privacy you expect in your own home. The neighbors were friendly but kept to themselves (something I really appreciated). My group had two cocktail parties over our stay and our guests were delighted. (A few commented they wished they had seen the place first). The pool and hot tub are the perfect size. Did I mention the view? Do yourself a favor and enjoy a cocktail while the sunsets. It is close everything (easy to the airport, easy to the local restaurants and shopping). Take a nice walk or bike ride through the historic Movie Colony neighborhoods. The owners and manager were extremely helpful and and answered all of my questions. They provided a detailed and easy to use "picture book manual" so it was no problem changing the indoor temperature and controlling the jets and temperature of the hot tub and pool. We were very pleased, even before our stay ended we told many of our friends. I returned home rejuvenated and preparing for my return.

My partner and I had a great time at Chrysalis: sipping champagne in the spa while looking at the mountains, grilling out in the back... The place is just plain cool. And in a great location. We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 4 out of 5
My review is late as I stayed in the property in September for a long weekend. This is a freshly remodeled home with a beautiful, mid-century look. The kitchen was well-stocked, the beds were super comfortable and the place was very clean both inside and out. We had a minor issue with the air conditioning not working well the first day of our visit but the owners took care of us and even refunded us a night's stay. What you can't tell from the pictures is that the pool is in the front yard and until the vegetation grows taller, the next door neighbor and his visitors have a direct line of sight into the pool area since his front door is next to the fence. Once the trees grow a bit, this shouldn't be an issue. That said, this is really is a beautiful place and we definitely hope to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Please note that this stay was over one year ago and the pictured ficus are about four times the size shown in the pictures. They are now taller than the fence. Also, please note that this guest has decided to stay at our house again for her birthday. I think this speaks to the quality of the property. Feel free to write us if you have questions.

From Wikipedia: 'The Movie Colony is just east of Palm Canyon Drive. The Movie Colony East neighborhood extends east from the Ruth Hardy Park. These areas started growing in the 1930s as Hollywood movie stars built their smaller getaways from their Los Angeles area estates. Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Estee Lauder, and Bing Crosby built homes in these neighborhoods.'
