Perfect 'oasis' for family

  • 5 of 5

Great layout, well maintained and well equipped home. 15 -20 minute walk to restaurants and shops in downtown area. With the pool and hot tub, this was a perfect choice for when the grand kids came to visit!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great about this rental experience. Communication before arrival was great and I got any questions answered quickly and efficiently. The house is big and spacious. We had nine adults at the house and didn't feel cramped at all. The beds are comfy. The pool and hot tub were clean and spot on. Great, great spot - would definitely stay there again!

Olive Oasis was everything and more!! The pictures do not say enough about this home.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 6 day stay at this amazing home and enjoyed every minute of it. It is in a great location and we found getting to where we wanted to go was very easy. The additional touches that are provided are so nice. We have been renting vacation properties for years and have never been in one that was this clean and well stocked. There were 7 in our party, 5 adults and 2 children. The house was a perfect size for us with lots of room and comfortable beds. The backyard was even better as this is where we spent most of our time. During the day we would lounge by the pool and at night sit around the outdoor fire pit and soak in the hot tub. Booking with Lauren was extremely easy and she always responded in a timely manner. It was a pleasure meeting Gail the house manager who we did not need to contact during our stay. This is because everything is so well maintained at Olive Oasis. We hope to return very soon.

Gorgeous vacation rental in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

Olive Oasis was truly an oasis in the desert! It is a well-appointed house that was more than comfortable for our full party of 9. We had everything we needed from towels to cooking utensils in the kitchen. The house is very spacious and easily stayed cool in the heat. All of the rooms and bathrooms were extremely well kept, it never felt like a bare bones rental property. Our favorite feature was definitely the backyard. The property has a hot tub, fire pit, and large pool, which was great for us to use to spend time outside but not overheat. There were plenty of lounge chairs for us to use and they were all in like-new condition. We also used the bbq one night, and it was easy to use and very clean.

Lauren was extremely helpful and easy to work with to book the property. Information on how to use remotes, etc. is discreetly posted around the property as well. It is less than 10 minutes from the Aerial Tram and about 5 minutes from the 111. There is plenty of parking on the street if needed, and there is a large driveway as well. The neighborhood is quiet, so it definitely feels like a wonderful escape from city life without being too far from amenities We will definitely be back!

Car: recommended

There are few popular attractions that are a short drive from the house. Nearby is the Aerial Tram that takes visitors to the top of San Jacinto Peak for stunning views of the desert and great trails. About 30 min away is the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. There is also a unique experience to tour the many windmills surrounding Palm Springs.
