About John Goins & Robert Broecker

Twelve years ago, 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 2014

Why John Goins & Robert Broecker chose Palm Springs

Location! Location! Location! And the house is beautiful, too! When we saw this house we knew we had to have it. The Warm Sands neighborhood was the area we came to the most before we owned our own place. The people are friendly; it's close to everything and has all of the charm of one of the original Palm Springs neighborhoods.

What makes this house unique

Cielo is a Spanish bungalow built in 1936. While renovating, we wanted to retain its charm but update it. We took down some walls to give it an open feel, added a pool in the private backyard and landscaped a beautiful desert garden in the front. We get excited whenever we arrive. It's the perfect get-away: comfortable, stylish and care-free.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Wonderful week in the desert

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our girl's week in Palm Springs! Great central location, very close to airport, shopping and restaurants. Can easily walk to the downtown "strip" in Palm Springs, or a short drive to Palm Desert, the Tram or beautiful hiking trails.

The house is well appointed with everything we needed to cook, swim, listen to music or just sit in the spa at night stargazing..

Thank you John and Robert, we'll be back!

Perfect place to chill

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in August. Everything was thought through and we loved the decor. We spent most of our time pool side with our daughter. It was a very quiet place and you wouldn't know you were so close the airport. Great communication with the owners ahead of our visit including arranging late check out for us . We will be back again!

Spectacular weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Several friends and I recently stayed at John & Robert's gorgeous home for a girls weekend and we could not have had a more wonderful time. The house is so welcoming, impeccably decorated, well stocked with any housewife/home items you could ever need, and minutes away from fantastic restaurants and things to do in Palm Springs. The entire process of booking through VRBO was seamless and made everyone in the group want to schedule our next vacation as soon as possible! THANK YOU John and Robert for making your house such a fantastic place to escape to :)

charming bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Cielo. We were 4 adults and 1-3 yr. old. L-shaped layout with open area, comprising kitchen and living, in the middle and 2 bedrooms on one end, 1 bedroom on the other end. Small but newish pool with wading shelf and hot tub. Perfect for a 3 yr. old and for dipping and cooling off for the adults. Lots of lounges, chairs and tables, umbrellas and towels for lounging. The interior is nicely furnished and equipped with everything you would need to whip up gourmet meals. Bedrooms and bathrooms are quite small which means no drawers or shelving for storing clothes. They do have closets, though. The location is just a 10 minute or so walk into the heart of all the Palm Springs action which makes it very attractive. Lots of restaurants, bars and the famous night market on Thursdays.

Paradise in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The house is divine, and well-appointed. We had everything we needed and more; we couldn't have felt more at home. The pool was the big highlight for our daughter. My husband loved firing up the grill for dinner each night. And I loved everything about the house itself -- the modern decor, the convenient location, the uber-cleanliness, and the fact the that every amenity was available and just where you'd expect to find it.
