Sunny home with private pool, cascading spa, and firepit - close to downtown

Whether you're looking to golf, relax in the desert sunshine, or attend the Palm Springs International Film Festival, you'll find a wonderful home base at Splash, a three-bedroom home that sits less than a mile from the heart of downtown Palm Springs. The outdoor space is particularly special, offering a private pool that sits amid manicured desert landscaping, an attached overflow spa that trickles down a flagstone waterfall, and tall hedges and fences that protect your privacy while sunbathing. Make use of the mini-fridge and the smoker in the built-in barbecue island, and relax in the outdoor lounge that's cooled by a misting system. At night, you can swap stories around the outdoor firepit in the front courtyard, retreat to the gas fireplace inside, and gather for a movie or two on the 50-inch TV.

What's nearby:
This home sits less than one mile east of Palm Canyon Drive, the heart of downtown Palm Springs that's lined with celebrated restaurants, boutiques, casinos, theaters, and other forms of nightlife. Golfers can take their pick from over 100 beautiful courses in the surrounding area, while hikers can head south to explore Tahquitz Canyon (two miles) or Indian Canyons (five miles) on foot. Spend a morning touring the Palm Springs Art Museum (two miles west), or take a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to soak in the incredible view (eight miles west).

Enjoyable stay despite some challenges. Had to call several times to get the pool/spa heat working. Main TV is older and does not connect to streaming services which was disappointing.

Great pool, shady outdoor area, nice bedrooms , perfect kitchen. Easy walk to park and shopping area. A few minor maintenance problems, but nothing to stop an enjoyable stay.
We did not have the pool heated and it wasn't a problem during our stay, All the televisions worked fine, the "big" one just requires a few more directions, but we figured it out.
Manager response:

Aimee T. Mar 2022
We enjoyed the pool, the mountain view, the quiet neighborhood, the location convenient to groceries and airport, and having a well-appointed kitchen that made it easy to eat in. Very comfortable home. We wish the management had been more responsive to our pool heating questions or concerns, or that there was some written instructions more specific to the property.
Manager response:

This house has everything you could want in a vacation home. Plenty of space, fully loaded kitchen and the pool was just awesome.

Great house, peaceful location. Big pool. Clean inside and outside.
Esmeralda C. Jul 2021
Beautiful house. There was only one thing I didn't like and that was the bed on the main room. The bed frame is bigger then the mattress and we kept on hitting our selfs on it. Other then that my family and I had a really good time and we are looking forward to rent it again.

My kids loved the shallow area of the pool and the water fall from the spa was relaxing to hear.
Jamie S. May 2021
We really enjoyed staying at this house. It was fully equipped with what we needed and the size of the pool was great! The inside is 90's mod decor, the appliances are nice. The only downsides to this house was the location (we thought it was closer to downtown) and also the A/C in the master bedroom. While the A/C worked, it only really cooled the "bonus room" as we called it (where the bar is located). The master never really got cool so at night we would shut off the air completely and open the doors to keep it cool. Luckily, it cools off at night so it all worked out. Other than that it was a great house to rent for us and our friends. We would stay again!
Manager response:
Hi, Jamie! The air conditioner has been serviced and is working well. Thank you!

"Splash" is the perfect name for this home -- the pool and spa are totally delightful. The layout around the pool is also great, with a covered area to keep out the hot sun and also lounge chairs in the sun next to the pool.

This is a perfect little spot with a huge pool, awesome hot tub and great grill....the smoker however has a faulty thermometer. Tried smoking something one day and burnt it to a crisp(only had been in smoker for 3 hours at 250 degrees). inside the house was clean and had all the kitchen necessities needed.
There is a gas fireplace that we used almost every night(Dec. can get cold at night in the desert). Beds are comfortable and decent pillows. A couple of the showers aren't the best, but the one in the master bedroom is awesome! The pool however is NOT salt water as it says in the description. It is only about 5 feet deep at the deepest which was great for us with a little one. Heating it in Dec. was crucial and made it so much more enjoyable for us! Was definitely disappointing finding that the pool wasn't salt water after we had gotten there. I would definitely stay here again though.

We loved the old Hollywood feel of this well kept home. The outdoor area was relaxing and we spent a lot of time enjoying the pool. The big TV was difficult to use and the sound didn’t seem to be working correctly. A tip sheet on how to use (3 different controllers) would be helpful.
Everything was very clean and the kitchen well stocked.

This home was very nice. It had a nice barbecue, a very nice pool and spa. We enjoyed it very much. Only suggestions are that they need a little bit more explanation on how to work the TV speakers in the “man cave”, the spa, the misters, etc. There were not a lot of instructions on how to operate these key items. It would also be nice if they updated all the TVs to smart TVs. The bedroom TVs are very small.

This is our third time staying here, the backyard and pool area are great! We stayed here originally back in 2012 and there seems to not have been any updating done. The TV/Entertainment system is extremely dated and almost impossible to use. Overall it is a great place but could use some updating inside.
