More intimate than a hotel and more sophisticated than a typical vacation rental, Thirteen Palms is a private, versatile property in the heart of Palm Springs that lets you fashion your stay in the desert to be whatever you want it to be: a weekend respite from the city; a month-long retreat with or without friends; the perfect setting for your birthday, wedding, or other special event; or home base for your group during one of Palm Springs’ many events.
Created specifically to exist in harmony with the desert, Thirteen Palms offers expansive privacy, with five fully furnished flats wrapped around an intimate courtyard, tranquil pool with in-ground spa, and lush cactus gardens. The flats are available separately, or rent the entire property for seven bedrooms that sleep up to twenty.
Enjoy dramatic views of the San Jacinto Mountains from any of the units, in which rich materials inspired by Mexican haciendas create a warm, modern environment for relaxing and socializing. Tiled patios, courtyard conversation areas, a BBQ grille, and plenty of poolside lounges provide serene outdoor living with numerous options for sunny days and warm nights.
Versatile and intimate, Thirteen Palms is perfect for retreats, off-sites, reunions, celebrations, holidays, and weekend getaways. Take an agenda-scrapping sabbatical for your soul, in an exceptional place to reconnect, recharge, and return.
The studio flat has a full kitchen and is a good option for single travelers who want to experience all Thirteen Palms has to offer but don’t need a lot of space.

Thirteen Palms was the PERFECT place to stay for my first trip to Palm Springs. My girlfriend an I stayed in the studio flat - it was super nice! It had such a private feel, with all the luxeries and amenities of a resort suite (full kitchen, linens, toiletries, etc). Fred was super easy to work with in setting up the reservation, and upon our check in, even offered my friend an I an upgrade to the 1 bedroom since it was available. Barry, who met us upon check in, was very friendly and able to offer some good recommendations for us in the area. We also really liked the personalized "To Do" book in the room, with favorite restaurants, activities and more. It made figuring out what to do during our stay very easy. The pool and hot tub were in great condition, and for it being such a small place, we had it to ourselves most of our stay! This will definitely be the place we'll stay when we visit Palm Springs again in the future!
Thirteen Palms is an amazing spot in Palm Springs and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there. Everything was super easy to coordinate with Fred. I would consider trying to return with a group of people for a longer stay.
This place was amazing! And Fred was such a generous and thoughtful host. Highly recommended!
What to say!!! Staying in thirteen Palms was a big positive surprise. Perfect location, perfect host. The place is decorated with taste and is very clean. Relaxing atmosphere u really do not feel to go out of the place u have everything you need to pumper yourself. Fred James and Scott made a goof job and I have to tank them if ingot a very good feeling about Palm Springs. In two worlds Thirteen Pam is a BIG YES.
An excellent place to stay. Sitting in the hot tub counting the palms on a full moon, there are definitely 13 palms in total!
From the first contact with Fred everything went flawlessly. I phoned Fred on arrival in Palm Springs and drove over to meet him and pick up the key. The flat is five minutes from the airport and is located in a very quiet residential neighborhood. The flat, one of five in a small complex, is surrounded by a courtyard with a pool/spa. The flat is well stocked with kitchen utensils, towels, soaps etc. but best of all was the fresh grapefruit from Fred's tree. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here another time.
Our stay at Thirteen Palms was amazing! The location is great - close to everything, yet very peaceful and quiet when you're on the property. We stayed a Sunday though Thursday so we had the whole place to ourselves! Fred was a gracious host, always ready to help and provided recommendations for restaurants. The decor at Thirteen Palms is lovely - fun with a nod to mid-century modern. We also appreciated access to a washer and dryer (which we didn't expect!), which we used a couple of times. The fully equipped kitchen was awesome. We spent of our time outdoors (of course!) and loved the heated pool, hot tub, outdoor furniture, large grill, palm trees and mountains. We were sad to leave! We highly recommend this gorgeous property!
I booked Fred's flat for my parents. Fred was very responsive to my request and made the booking process super easy for me. My parents said Fred went out of his way to make them at home, even giving them grapefruit off his fruit tree, providing hiking recommendations, and sharing his knowledge of the Film Festival. They loved the cozy spa/pool and cleanliness of the place. Overall a great experience for the me and my parents. Highly recommended!
My husband and I had a great time at Thirteen Palms. Everything about the stay was beyond our expectations. First of all, Fred is an excellent host, he was professional, friendly and approachable. Also, he gave us a lot of valuable information about Palm Springs and helped us when we needed some extra guidance.
Thirteen Palms is a beautiful property. It's clean, tastefully decorated and well equipped. The location is amazing. It's close to the main street that has most of the restaurants and entertainment, and it's quiet at the same time.
We will certainly come back to Thirteen Palms next time we visit Palm Springs.
Fred's place was great and he was a very helpful host. Everyone was very nice and the place was clean and modern. Having a full kitchen was great especially since my stay was long. The common space is a great place to relax after a long day. I would definitely stay here again!
