Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in California Desert - 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 California Desert

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.

Nice pool, close to downtown PS

  • 4 of 5

The best thing about the house is the lovely, warm pool and proximity of the property to downtown Palm Springs. It was easy to run out for food when we didn't want to cook, and it took only a minute or to to get to restaurants. The pool has a real deep end, which we always appreciate, and a nice little spa attached. From the backyard, there is a gorgeous view of the mountains at sunrise -- it's worth getting up early. The pool, spa, and mist controls are also easy to operate. Quiet neighborhood; barely heard anything other than a gardener. The house is small: we had four adults and felt that was enough for the space. Josh, the owner, is extremely courteous, responsive and very forthcoming with suggestions about restaurants, etc. His house manager did not answer our call, however, when we had an AC problem -- we didn't get a response until 24 hours later, when Josh promptly responded to an email about it, but the HVAC man came too late for us to be able to have him come in. When we stayed, the couches and bench in master needed either a deep cleaning or replacing, there was definitely a need for umbrellas in the backyard, and there was hardly any bathroom tissue in the house (we ran out early one morning). Linens were clean and plentiful. A built-in gas BBQ in the back would also be a useful addition.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I wish that you had let me know you used all the toilet paper and I would have told you where to find more- we keep dozens of rolls in the cabinets in the garage! I also appreciate the need to notify others of issues (like air conditioning) in a review, but you know that it took my house manager about a half day to find an available air conditioning technician to come to the house- when he did find one he showed up immediately. When he arrived 'the house was freezing inside', according to his observation, and I have since had them out again after your departure and there is no issue with the air conditioning at the house. Your guest that opened the door for him also informed him that there was no issue with the air conditioning- however he could have showed you where the toilet paper was if you asked. There is a BBQ at the property, but it is not built-in and it is not gas- that would be a tough thing to provide on short notice without an advance request. There are multiple areas that are shaded in the back yard- awnings, patio covers, and an umbrella- not to mention about a dozen palm trees that provide shade almost all day. Regardless, I'm the type of owner who would have supplied umbrellas at your request- I strive to provide a 5-star experience for all of my guests. Thank you again for staying and thank you for your review- as you can see its the only 4-star out of many, and I really wish you had let me know of your concerns during your stay so they could have been addressed
