Desert Rose is a beautiful, well-equipped property located in a charming neighborhood. The rental exceeded our expectations. It was larger and more spacious than the pictures lead you to believe. The kitchen was well-stocked with anything you might need. The beds, linens, towels, etc were top-notch. The living/dining area was huge and so comfortable for a family of 5 traveling with grandparents. The giant sectional near the TV was the perfect play area for the kids while the parents and grandparents were to enjoy the other seating area near the gas fire. Not that we were inside very much. The amazing backyard was where we spent most of our time. It's lush with green hedges, tons of palm trees and flowering vines. There was a wonderful water feature on one side near the fire pit which was such a fun and comfortable place to hang out at night. There was so much outdoor seating- really nice cushioned pool loungers, multiple tables and chairs, a cushioned bed area and a cabana. The pool was saltwater filtered and heated which is so nice because you don't have the chlorine smell on you. There was a problem with the hot tub during our stay, but our friendly concierge Michael was on it immediately and it was fixed so we could enjoy it during our stay. The neighborhood was lovely too. Really interesting mid-century architecture and multiple former celebrity houses within walking distance. We really couldn't have been happier. We've stayed at other house rentals in Palm Springs before and there can be an issue with style vs. comfort. Some places are gorgeous but not family friendly while others are comfy but lack the style we desire from a mid-century rental. Desert Rose is able to achieve both beautifully.

Desert Rose is the perfect Palm Springs pad. Plenty of space to relax, even with teenagers (we have three). The mountain views from the pool/hot tub are amazing and the kitchen is a dream. We will definitely be back!
