Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, this was THE most incredible rental we have ever stayed at. Even our two teenaged sons agreed this was our best vacation ever, mostly due to the fabulous house/yard/pool. We even all agreed to skip the water park visit we had planned to just hang by the pool that day. The house felt like your own home, everything you might need was there waiting for you. Lemon tree in the back yard produced monster lemons! The caretaker, Frank was friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. We loved Sherman's Deli, be sure to get a dessert to go. The street fair Thursday night was fun, but a bit too crowded. We spent time with family as well as taking in the local sites. A bonus was a hummingbird nest in the tree by the front door. Two eggs were inside and one hatched during our stay. I think we all agree if we return to Palm Springs, this is our place to stay. Even went home with clean clothes, as there is a washer/dryer in the house and laundry soap (like everything else you could think of) was provided. Miss this place already. Thanks for a super relaxing vacation! PS: Don't let the fact this house is near the airport dissuade you from staying...hardly ever heard the planes.

It is a true hideaway... loved it

  • 5 of 5
Harriet's Hideaway was perfect for our family. Everything you needed was there ... and I mean everything, cookware , essentials, a book of attractions, instructions, even a beverage in the fridge. Having the 2 yards was awesome and the grounds and pool were beautiful, clean , quiet and private . Yes... you can hear the air traffic from the airport but it only made you glad you still there and did not have to leave yet. Every part of our rental went exceeding well from the booking, paying online, discussing details with the owner by email , meeting the manager at check in and the refund process. My family and I will be back. Thanks so much to Tony and Frank !

We arrived to meet Frank the property manager who guided us through the particulars and answer our questions. Frank called or visited a few times through week to confirm all was going well. Property was clean, with all the amenities. We had an excellent stay and would return again or recommend to our friends.

We had a great time.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great two week vacation with our little dogs. The house is ideal with the cool tiles, the pool and the hot tub. Our favorite spot is the backyard which is shaded with green grass. We loved relaxing and playing there. The dogs were very happy and safe with the high solid walls. Completely private. You don't see street or neighbors. So quiet. This was our second visit, and we will be back.

Good Times in PS

  • 4 of 5
In Palm Springs for our nephew's wedding and the house was a great place for us to hang out for the week. It worked great for a small cocktail party and was perfect for just chilling out. Smallish house was very roomy. We spent most of our time around the pool and hot tub area in front. And the backyard was great for our small labradoodle. Outside walls and beautiful, mature landscaping made it very private. Bedrooms are roomy. Good linens. House was very well stocked. Advise you check it out before going shopping. Older home is well kept and clean. What you would expect for old Palm Springs. Very comfortable. Kitchen flows well. Nice BBQ in backyard. Mixed neighborhood but not noisy. Some airport flyover that you don't even notice after a couple of days. Close to old Palm Springs which we really enjoyed. We would return in a heartbeat. Works so well for family or 2/3 couples. Highly recommend the Tram and Thur night street fair in dntn PS.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Palm Springs International [PSP] at 2 Miles Nearest Train : Amtrack at 9 Miles Nearest Motorway : I-10 & Gene Autry Tr at 5 Miles Car: recommended

Located in Palm Springs, in the sunny, wind free area south of the airport. We are close to DeMuth park and Knott's Soak City water park. Airport noise is slight and very infrequent because most of the air traffic comes in and out of the North end. The downtown area is 1.5 miles straight down Ramon Rd.
