Via VRBO (8/10/14)
This house fit our needs perfectly. We had a girls weekend getaway and it was more than accommodating. It was a short Uber ride from downtown and secluded enough that we could have runs in the neighborhood in the morning. The eclectic decor made us feel so mod for the weekend and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and outdoor grill were perfect for dining in and making our own meals. The TWO firepits out back made our nights even more enjoyable for just sitting outside and enjoying each other's company. The pool was also so large and made relaxing during the day on floats we brought possible. Thank you so much for renting to us on our fantastic weekend getaway.

Hi Taryn! I wanted to thank you again for everything. We had a wonderful time & absolutely adored the house. I want all of the furniture! It is a magical place. We've already be asked by multiple friends who saw our posted pics for your contact info. We will defiantly be renting Verona again in the near future. You made our weekend extra special. Thank you & take care!
The Park (3/15/14)
We stayed at The Park for my Bachelorette party this past spring and it was the perfect backdrop for a fun (and stylish) ladies weekend in Palm Springs!!
Being an interior designer myself, I selected The Park for it's fabulously curated Hollywood Regency decor all done in mod black and white with just the right amount of yellow. In addition to the amazing decor, the sparkling pool in the backyard with spectacular mountain views caught my eye. And let me tell you, the pictures do not even begin to describe it!! Lounging poolside while staring out at that view is simply breathtaking!!! The seating areas in the backyard are abundant and the one surrounding the outdoor fireplace creates the perfect ambience for evening cocktails, followed by a relaxing soak in the hot tub.
Aside from the fabulous decor that just makes you want to move in, the fully stocked kitchen and large dining room table are perfect for meals in... which we took full advantage of, as we only left the house one evening for a "ladies night" out. Moving on to the bedrooms, which are all done in hip and colorful decor, but best of all they have AMAZING beds!!! The mattress and pillows make it tough to want to get up in the morning, only peering through the windows and seeing the glimmer of the sun reflecting on the pool could get me out.
From the decor, to the location to the amenities...we absolutely loved staying at The Park and will for sure be back for another desert weekend getaway!!
Casa Verona (5/03/14)
We rented Casa Verona for our wedding on May 3rd. We knew we wanted to get married at a private residence, to allow for a more intimate feel, it was just a matter of finding the perfect one! Casa Verona was all that and more!!!
Let me start with the decor...it is so fabulously funky!!! All three bedrooms are fun and quirky in their own way. But what is truly noteworthy about all of them is their luxurious beds!! I slept so well.. even on the night before our wedding (which is saying a lot!) Moving out of the bedrooms, I love the red kitchen cabinets- so fun, it makes you want to cook just so you can hang out in there. But the living room is where it's at...think sunken floors with shag carpet, extra long Chesterfield leather sofas and scattered Moroccan poufs...it's just asking to be lounged in!! To enjoy the majestic desert views you don't even have to leave the comfort of the living room, but once you do, you'll be glad you did!! The back yard might be even better than the living room..with a sparkling pool, mosaic tiled fireplace and poolside fire pit (which are amazing when lit at night), outdoor grill, and hot tub, all with ample areas to lounge, you'll truly never want to leave!!
Not only was Casa Verona perfect for a getaway in the days leading up to and after our wedding, but it was exactly what we wanted for our special day as well!!! By the end of our stay we all decided that we MUST have a vacation home like Casa Verona!! We will definitely be back!!!
Making My Monday (11/05/2012)
We had a great time running away to the desert this weekend. We rented a house, which we don’t normally do, and it was a nice alternative for the kids. They had space to roam, we were able to whip up easy snacks and food without a sky-high ModShop bill and once they were in bed, we weren’t confined to a hotel room. We chose a property that is owned and operated by one of our favorite home design stores in Los Angeles, ModShop; you can see all their rentals here, I highly recommend taking a peek for your next desert vacation. We decided it’s a good idea for us to alternate house rentals with hotel stays – as great as all the freedom and flexibility was, I also had to do dishes and take out trash, so you know… Either way, we marveled once again at how easy it is to slip off to Palm Springs and truly feel transported from the daily grind — the perfect mini-break for my maxed out family.
Awesome Memorial Day reunion (05/29/2012)
Truly awesome rental -- perfect for a reunion of friends. We had 8 people - some couples, some singles and the double beds in one of the bedrooms and king size beds in the other rooms was fantastic. The layout of the house is ideal - all of the sleeping areas are on one side and the living room / kitchen and outdoor access on the other. The house itself is well furnished - and things are generally in great condition, AC works great and we had consistent Wi-Fi the whole time. We cooked everyday and the kitchen had pretty much everything we needed. The best part however was the outdoor pool and backyard. It was incredibly relaxing and made for lounging and talking. The location is also great - within walking distance of the design district! We couldn't have been happier. The only downsides: the sprinklers went off in the middle of the day and there weren't any coffee filters or salt/pepper. We fixed that pretty quickly!
Just wanted to tell you that we had a great time at your house. It was beautiful and the surroundings were great. It felt very private and secluded. I hope that we left everything alright and did everything that we needed to do before leaving. There only ended up being 3 of us instead of 5 so one bedroom didn't get used. Thanks again! We will definitely check with you on our next trip! Have a great day Sincerely, Bob Berry Steve Eden (05/24/2010) Just wanted to tell you how much we LOVED the house and the weekend. We hope to stay there again! Everything was wonderful, and we certainly tried to leave the house in wonderful shape when we left this morning. Sorry about bothering you regarding the air conditioning, I think we got it turned off, and we turned the temperature to 79 so if it is still running, at least it won't be running much! We also weren't 100% sure how to re-activate the alarm, so we just punched in the code and heard it beeping as we left, so I assume it was armed.
Anyway, thanks again, we will be in touch next time we head out there!
The stay at the Lodge was fantastic, thank you. The weather was great and decor was fun! We were curious to know about the history of the house? The Las Palmas area was beautiful and I'm sure filled with stories of the past... loved the mountain views.
I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the Pink Door this past weekend. The house was lovely and the weekend was perfect. We spent the entire days by the pool and remarkably didn't burn. We were even thinking about going back next month from Mar 26-28. Could you please let me know which houses are available that weekend? I think the Park might be perfect.

I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time, thank you very much. It was our first time at a vacation home and I must say I am hooked! We can't wait to go back again and we will definitely be giving you a call again. P.S. We ended up bringing too little dogs, so we owe you the daily pet charge. They were so cute and loved your home as much as we did.
