About Reuben Pacheco

Life is beautiful and an adventure! We invite you to make your stay enjoyable and memorable in one of our private residences. Our lifestyle is all about having our traveling shoes on & travel apps downloaded for a quick jaunt at a moment’s notice. We primarily live and work in Los Angeles, and decided to open up our homes in: New York, Palm Springs, and Buenos Aires for short term rental stays. What started out as letting friends and family crash in our space while we were away, has turned into an enjoyable experience that has connected us to people from all over the world. We love sharing our space with people who appreciate our taste and style. It’s been very gratifying for us.

We’ve staged and outfitted each space as though we are going to live there full time. With that being said, we enjoy the some finer things in life; a fully stocked kitchen with loads of kitchen gadgets, espresso machines, quality linens and bedding with fluffy pillows that compliment a lux memory foam mattress’, plant based shampoos and conditioners, technology driven systems and most of all convenience. Our passion for great locations, architecture, and interior design is inspired by our travels to beautiful and remote places, access to design showrooms and designers. And, most of all, the luxury of having access to some of the world’s most beautiful architectural and designer homes through selling real estate in Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills and Hancock Park.

Reuben Pacheco purchased this house in 2012

Beautiful mid century Palm Springs home! Very well appointed and pool is best ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in this clean, cheeky, bright well appointed home. We cooked and had all we needed in the kitchen, pool views of mountains through the Palm trees were perfect. Artwork is lovely addition. Highly recommended! Reuben the owner was very responsive and Vidal was a great property manager.

Property was modern and spacious in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome experience at this property! We stayed Feb 2nd - 6th with a group of 5 girls and a little one (7 months old). When we arrived, we were greeting within minutes and given an extensive tour of the property. Everyone we dealt with along the way was very friendly and professional. Furniture was updated and modern and there was plenty of space. The outdoor areas were great with lots of room and privacy. Kitchen had just about everything you needed, though we didn't cook much while we were there. The photos that we saw on the vrbo site were all very accurate to the current state of the house which was nice as there can be some "misconceptions" with some photos and out of date ones out there. The only little things that we noticed that would prevent us from giving it a 5* rating were: 1) some floors and corners in the bathrooms weren't quite clean but just minor so we weren't too bothered by it 2) the food processor was probably not used much so it wasn't in the best condition and we couldn't use it 3) one or two pieces of furniture were slightly weathered. Again, these were all just minor things and we barely noticed them in the 4 days we were staying. Overall we would recommend this property! We had a great time! :)

Owner's Response: Hi Amanda, Thank you for your review. I've read through your notations carefully and we have addressed items 1 with our cleaning crew. I can assure you or anyone else planning on returning or booking for the 1st time....the corners will be sparkling. With regard to furniture and food proccessor...we do try to maintain high quality and functional appliances and furnishings...please keep in mind occasionally some items are cared for less than one would hope and usually we make adjustments to furnishings after a full season has been closed out. We do plan on having buttons sewed back on just as soon as the season ends.

Beautiful MCM Home

  • 4 of 5

This place was a fabulous place to get away from winter this January! The house is cute with many mid-century replicas, and I loved the well appointed kitchen to cook delicious meals. We were never wanting for anything.

The main disappointment of the weekend was the pool heating. The contract stated the pool would be heated to 88 degrees, and it wasn't heated for our arrival, nor did it properly heat up until the final day of our stay. This is pertinent when it is colder out and we were expecting to use the pool-- and I understand it being unseasonably cooler didn't help matters, however, I spoke with the property manager and emailed the owners, but they didn't change the heating schedule-- that was a shame.

Also, the shower has shampoo/conditioner/body wash-- it's a fun game to try and guess what is what. I would recommend those be labeled!

Owner's Response: Hi Gaggan, Thank you for your response. We appreciate your review however, I need to clarify a couple items that you've pointed out. In extreme cold weather it always takes more time to heat the pool which is what both myself and Mayank, my Assistant explained in two seperate emails sent to you. The pool is set to 88 degrees and the heater is run from 6am to 6pm each day that you have opted to pay for which, by the way, you were asked in the very beginning if you wanted to heat a day before as we always ask our guests what they would like to do. This information / option is also listed in our property disclosure bundle. Pool heating is expensive and most people only opt to pay for their time at the property for obvious reasons. The house was vacant the week before so we had no reason to keep the heater running in advance. Had we a guest checking-out a day or even 2 before your check-in, we would have gladly kept the heater on to save the heat that would have been generated as it is more cost effective to maintain a heat level than to build a heat level. Vidal our Property Manager is very adept at explaining all items in the house and how to use them. I know for a fact that Vidal takes great care in explaining the shower caddy's dispensers because we use very high end products that we don't necessarily want wasted. We also have videos that we sent you as a back up that explains all appliances, gadget, safes and shower dispensers ( and the order of shampoo/conditioner/body wash). We have taken great lengths to ensure our guests are knowledgeable on how to use anything in the house as we feel it reduces the number of accidents or broken items claims. I'm sorry you feel the way you have expressed above however, I don't think your estimation is accurate or fair with regard to the pool or shower caddy's especially after the number of emails and calls that we had before you took possession of the house. We were especially careful to outline our protocols, our rules and regs and limitations the house could handle due to the number of guest count, non-overnight and overnight guest change requests you had through-out the booking process. Maybe this review is based on our firmness to maintain house rules, as previously discussed numerous times, prior to your taking possession.

Beautiful House in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is impeccably detailed and very accommodating for a relaxing time with friends. We are foodies and the kitchen had all we needed to prepare a complex meal. The gas fire pits were great gathering areas. The location worked well for us as a starting point to get to hiking and to get to restaurants and downtown.
