We live in a cooler, often chilly climate in Northern California. Palm Springs offers us a place to switch gears, warm our bones and provides us a delightful environment to engage nature and enjoy the many enlivening activites in the desert.
Barbara purchased this House in 2009
Why Barbara chose Palm Springs
We have been traveling to Palm Springs with friends who have owned a home in the desert since 2001. We were excited to find a home in a natural desert setting that we could renovate, enjoy and share with others!
What makes this House unique
We bought this home because of the gorgeous views and the mid-century sensibility of the home in this amazing hillside setting. When creating the landscape with its patios, pool/spa, walls and established trees we made every effort to ensure we brought the natural Palm Springs panorama into view. It is something to behold from every room and spot in and around the house!

Great stay in Palm Springs
Nicely appointed. Gorgeous location. Conveniently located near hiking path leading to South Lykken Trail. Easy distance to everything. Great communication with owner and manager. Very strongly recommend.
Terrific of you to leave this review Joel, thank you! Sounds like all you hoped for, especially with location and hiking, was delivered! Happy New Year!
Palm Springs Pearl of a home
great home in a fab. area. highly recommend
Not only did the home exceed our expectations, it was truly perfect and exactly what we needed for our family Thanksgiving gathering. We were delighted with the welcome gift of a bowl of fruit upon arrival. The home had plenty of space for our two 20-something children and one of their boyfriends, a mother-in-law, my husband and me to enjoy each other's company, yet also find space to recover from "too much time with each other" . We utilized the pool, hot tub, indoor/outdoor fireplaces, and well stocked kitchen during our rainy and cold Thanksgiving week-long stay. The pool/hot tub were heated and a super fun treat to jump into during the chilly temps outside. The three bedrooms had their own full bathrooms stocked with shampoo, conditioner, soap, and plenty of towels. The kitchen had everything that we needed with a great little lounge with an awesome BIG comfy red chair! There was a great stereo system with tons of music CDs to choose from.. The views out the front and back were breathtaking....and we even saw a bobcat out the back. Part of our family hiked up the back mountain each morning to start the day off with a little heart pumping exercise and spectacular vistas, others walked to the nearby hiking trail, and some of us enjoyed the patios and indoor fireplaces during the rainy, cold holiday week. There was space for everyone.....to gather....and to retreat. We cannot wait to return, possibly with other couples to share this gem in Palm Springs. Thank you, Barbara.....and crew (property manager, pool maintenance, and landscaping).
Thank you Patrick and Kristin for choosing our home for your special family Thanksgiving getaway. We loved having you and to the house to enjoyed hearing about your stay. We're thrilled you love it! We look forward to hearing from you when you are available to come back. Enjoy the balance of 2019!
Great to find the house in the same condition as our last visit 8 years ago. Well equipped and spotlessly clean it is a joy to stay in. Our 6 year old spent hours in the pool and swam her first full length. Brian and Barbara were very prompt in sorting out a minor problem with the pool and spa.
We look forward to returning, Bernard and Jill
Palm Springs Getaway
Great property. Quiet and nestled under a hillside in south Palm Springs this modern house is a true gem. Brian, the property manager was more than helpful and Barbara the owner was responsive and courteous with all of my questions. Thanks again.
Will absolutely return here. Wish we could have stayed longer.
