Guestbook comments from the owner

The landscaping and location are both fantastic! The house is well stocked with kitchen appliances, towels, etc. and we loved the outdoor cooking area. The pool is definitely a little chilly unless you heat it, being from MN and coming here in March, we were just glad to see liquid water, so chose not to heat it. Lisa was very helpful and accommodating throughout the rental process and was easy to get in touch with. One tip for when you first arrive (especially if it's at night), is to look for the address on the curb. We drove back and forth a couple of times before realizing we were at the right location, and discovered one of the most wonderful features of the house; its completely hidden from the street, neighbors, etc.! Once inside the gate, you are in your own, private retreat, and its beautiful! The neighborhood is also beautiful and quiet - very few cars driving by. If your are looking for private and peaceful, I would recommend this property!

Thank you for a great time!

We loved Lisa's place. Beautiful home, great location, loved the neighborhood. Everything you need is provided, as far as kitchen utensils, pool floats... Comfortable beds, everything was clean. Bikes were great fun. Hot tub was wonderful! Lisa was a pleasure to work with, very quick to respond to our questions. Would highly recommend. Thank you Lisa!

Comfortable and beautifully appointed home in the middle of the movie colony. Very private and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was just perfect. The furnishings were lovely and comfortable. The kitchen is exceptionally well stocked and the yard/ pool area is so pretty and private.

The bikes and golf clubs were a pleasant surprise.

We were lucky to meet the owner upon arrival, and she couldn’t have been nicer.

I have rented a number of properties in PSP and this is definitely one of my favorites! I hope to be back soon!!

Wonderful, private home close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is very private and in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to restaurants, historic sites, shopping and golf courses. We rode the bikes every morning to get coffee at Ernest Coffee Co and meander through the gorgeous Midcentury neighborhood of Old Las Palmas. Lisa was so easy to work with and we will definitely stay again and recommend to our friends and clients!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a gem. It is located in the quiet "Movie Colony" neighborhood of Palm Springs. The pool and patio area were absolutely wonderful and we spent most of our time swimming and barbecuing. We hope to return in a few month's!
