Truly an excellent getaway!!! Wendy was wonderful to work with and we didn't even want to leave the house to go shopping or do any other activities. Everything was gorgeous and calming. We will be back again!

This property is spectacular. My partner and I had the most wonderful, rejuvenating, weekend at Villa Palma. Wendy, the owner, was so hospitable upon our arrival. She was in her private Casita on the grounds over the weekend and we didn't even know she was there. She gave us total privacy! Not only is the interior beautiful, the grounds are amazing. The pool jacuzzi area is soooooo inviting with lots of comfortable furniture. We spend all day and night by the pool. At night the property comes ALIVE with magic. The stars and moon reflecting into the beautiful huge round tiled pool, the blue lights on stone fountain in perfectly manicured lawn area and candles twinkling on the stunning outdoor table in terrace dining area. It is truly spectacular!!!! This property is beyond a dream come true vacation home and is a VERY VERY special place. For my future getaways to Palm Springs, Villa Palma will ALWAYS be my first choice to getaway to. MAGICAL.

We spent 3+ days at this amazing house with our Family. Wendy was a great host, we are super happy we decided to stay in her home. The house is very private and the location is honestly the best in town. All you need to bring is your swim shorts and let the vacation begin!! Outdoor space and indoor area feels very luxurious, you will not be disappointed...

Wendy, Thank you again!!

A perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just as the other reviewers have stated, this property exceeds expectations! Wendy was a great hostess. We had a couple of questions that came up and I've never had such a quick response time - she always answered me within minutes! Also, there was an earthquake in Palm Springs the night before we came and Wendy spent the entire day at the house repairing things so she would not have to cancel on us at the last minute. We were so grateful because some of the guests flew in from New York and San Francisco to be there for the weekend and we had no backup plan! The house is very well-appointed. Lots of towels for the beautiful pool and house, a nice washer and dryer (which is not always the case with home rentals), great media hookups - from the Sonos sound systems to the flat screen tv's in the kitchen and bedrooms, and too many other thoughtful touches to mention here. The beds are as soft and cozy as everyone has said in past reviews! The master bedroom is a very open and shared space, so make sure whomever you plan to share it with is someone you know pretty well. The bathroom in the master is also very open to the bedroom, so you'll have minimal privacy in that space. We were a group of girlfriends so it was fun for us to all be together getting ready and it would truly be ideal for a family. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was well-stocked. The only things we could have used more of were measuring cups and spoons, but otherwise she did a great job of providing platters, dishes, and various spices and cooking staples like olive oil and flour, etc... Every single person in our group said they would want to stay in the same house on their next trip to Palm Springs! Thanks for going the extra mile and not cancelling on us, Wendy!!!

Wendy was a fantastic host! The property is beautiful and she even offered to go to the store and buy us supplies when our flight was delayed. We will be back!
