Why Joe Luisi chose Old Las Palmas
We remodeled this private estate to include several casitas/bungalows/suites for vacation rentals. Designed for the travelers who want to privately enjoy luxury amenities behind the tall walls surrounding the property. We have frequent visitors from the Hollywood elite who want to enjoy their privacy next to the salt water pool surrounded by tall swaying palm trees and our lush gardening landscape. Perfect location for wedding nights, honeymoons, anniversaries, small group parties, private corporate events and retreats. You will be catered to by the owner and small staff who respect your privacy.
What makes this Estate unique
This Spanish style estate is a great destination in the heart of Palm Springs. Great for events, weddings, corporate get togethers and overnight stays. Our property has been used for filming movies and big name product and fashion photography.

A great, private getaway
First, I'd give an extra half star if I could. This a great bit of property just off of Palm Canyon Drive in a beautiful neighborhood. the grounds are spacious and well maintained. In particular the pool and Jacuzzi are clean and warm (80 degree pool!). Our hosts, Joe and Diane, were readily available and accommodating while being very hands off and unintrusive. You may not get the bells and whistles of a hotel stay, but you do get an abundance of charm
and a sense of privacy missing at any of the larger nearby resorts.
Private and Beautiful getaway
My boyfriend and I rented out the entire property with a few friends and had the best time. We went for New Years eve and unfortunately there was a freeze over/rain that week so we couldn't enjoy the pool and jacuzzi as much as we'd like, but it was still an amazing experience. The owner was very helpful and responsive. The house was fully equipped with outdoor heaters so that we could still enjoy the outside areas. This place is absolutely stunning with great outdoor dining areas. Definitely recommend for a group of couples or friends as each bedroom is separate from the main house. Beautiful piece of property.
Great place, would definitely book again for the right occasion!
This was an amazing place to stay for the 5 days we were in Palm Springs. The owner and staff are fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The Estate was such a wonderful change from staying in a hotel. We stayed in Casa Antigua and had our own kitchen, sitting area, patio and could walk out our door into the pool. Everything was immaculate, inside and out. It was like an oasis from the city but very close to Palm Canyon Drive where there are wonderful restaurants, stores, galleries and even some live entertainment. After staying here I don't want to stay in a hotel again! The decor and grounds are a feast for the senses and the staff and owner are interesting and entertaining hosts who make you feel welcome within minutes. I would highly recommend this place and am looking forward to going back myself. It was a home away from home, except better!
A little slice of heaven
This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The pictures don't do it justice! It is close enough to walk downtown, but far enough away that it's quiet and peaceful. Great views of the mountains from the pool. I spent a lot of time sitting poolside and was usually the only person there. The pool is small, but well maintained. The jacuzzi is attached to the pool. The grounds are gorgeous. The owners were extremely nice. Overall, the place has great character, definitely a special place. I would say that this place is perfect if you are looking for a quiet place to get away and relax. I spent a couple days here and felt completely rejuvenated after the trip. I will definitely be back!
Private & tranquil oasis - yet within walking distance to downtown
This property is a hidden treasure tucked behind walls in the beautiful Old Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs. The architecture of the buildings is charming and the manicured grounds are lovely. The casita we stayed in was tastefully appointed with every amenity and french doors opened onto a small private patio with views of the lush landscaped pool area. The owners, Lisa & Joe were pleasant and we enjoyed some interesting conversations with Joe. The caretaker, Johann, was informative and helpful with our stay and offered some ideas on local attractions. What a great getaway - we plan to come back!
This is one of Palm Springs best kept secrets! Such a gorgeous property! So much nicer than a "hotel" atmosphere. The grounds are AMAZING and the decor is just beautiful. Peaceful, immaculate and very comfortable, we were welcomed and both Joe and Lisa went out of their way to make our stay nice. We loved the location and being able to walk to our favorite restaraunts downtown. We will definitely stay here again and look forward to it!
Palm Springs is full of activities from bars, pubs, restaurants, theaters, community events, art walks, Hollywood Star's home tours and more.
