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

What a great home this is! We spent an extended weekend here to celebrate our friends' 25th wedding anniversary, and what a treat this home was! The mid-century modern design is impeccable - offering all of the amenities of home...and then some! The comfort in the beds rival some of the top hotels and no detail was spared - including plenty of towels and lush robes to keep us warm when we got out of the beautiful pool. This home is a must visit - I certainly look forward to visiting again! Cheers guys on a great PS home!

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!

A well kept place with lots of amenities but lacks service

  • 2 of 5

I am writing this review a month after I left this property, this is a very nice house and a decent pool with a jacuzzi hottub

Now EVERYTHING that you might need is in the house (Towels, Sun Cream, Detergents and everything) has a modern look, )

The house has a few nice chairs and many many sunshades and bikes and the landscape is well kept up.

Not too fancy but a very reasonable lovely house

So I loved it overall but the reason I'm giving it two stars as i wanted to is because first of all the pictures from the pool isn't updated it actually has now bushes all around the pool but the problem for me was that at one place there is a big spot where the next door neighbor was peaking in

Another problem is the house had a bit of strong smell actually it could just be some different detergent

And on top of that the shades in the dining room was broken and I feel trying to fix that little screw and I was hoping that at least I won't get charged a fee that was unfair to me not to mention I couldn't close the living room completely with the shades

And the main reason is that one night around 8 o'clock at night the house went dark the electricity was off the whole night and when I emailed the owner to ask about it he told me that there was an outage now my food was spoiled and I was emailing the owner if I might be eligible for some discount and absolutely no response and I was asking VRBO if I am eligible for some kind of refund and they made a case but nothing happened so for me ignoring is a very bigood problem I mean just say it's not our fault we can't do anything about it or say OK will give let's say $200 so that's my reason I gave it a two stars and going forward I will use mclean as there villas are much more luxurious yet just a little bit more expensive.

Great location, terrific view

  • 4 of 5

Convenient to everything you want to see and do in Palm Springs. The only thing that didn't thrill us was cooking in the house: the kitchen cookware is badly in need of a refresh and the grill did not work.

Palm Springs Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

As property owners that also have a home on Homeaway in Provincetown MA, we have expectations when we rent and this home exceeded those. The feeling is comfortable and the salt water pool is heaven. The views are awesome and love the location. If you go to Palm Springs and want to experience it fully, this is the home to stay in.

Thank you for your kind hospitality.

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.'
