About John Goins & Robert Broecker

In 2003, 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 & Robert Broecker purchased this house in 2012

Why John Goins & Robert Broecker chose Ruth Hardy Park

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

If I had a pool, I'd design it like this one. Great for kids.

Excellent Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family spring break vacation at Chrysalis. When we arrived, the house was clean and lived up to the standards set by the pictures online. We had three adults and three children and the house had enough space for all of us. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed to prepare basic meals as well as some extras. The kids enjoyed the snow cone maker! All three bedrooms were very comfortable. The outside area was out favorite part of the house. The pool and hot tub were absolutely perfect for us. The heats and jets made it possible for us to swim all day long despite it being a little windy and chilly outside. The house is centrally located to several Palm Springs attractions. We had a great time and will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Five of us---3 adults, 2 teen girls.

  • 5 of 5

The house, though not large, is well designed for ease and comfort. Location is close to downtown Palm Springs, walkable for active persons. The owners provide everything you might need for a week stay. Well designed landscape and outside spaces for the outdoor life. I would book it again.

Nice getaway with privacy and awesome view

  • 5 of 5

We met another couple in Palm Springs to spend a few days catching up, relaxing and experiencing the area. Chrysalis was the perfect spot for us! Sitting by the pool there is such a beautiful view of the mountains! The current pool picture doesn't show the full growth of the ficus bushes - they completely block the white fenced off area and create a serene environment. The area is quiet and close to town to so many nice coffee spots and restaurants. The house is older, but clean and modern with bright touches. I love that 2 bedrooms have King beds - most of the time there is only one King in the house and the others are Queen. That was a nice bonus for 2 couples. This was the perfect place for us - close to town and our own private pool.

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.'
