This is such an incredible house to rent with friends. 15 of us gathered here before my wedding and we all said we wanted to come back. There are five separate connected units that lend for privacy and are fully stocked with essentials. Truly a unique space and perfect perfect for large groups. Fred is adorable and helpful and squeezed us in, and I am so grateful for it!
Thirteen Palms was the perfect oasis during Stagecoach! The space was exactly as described and pictured, and Fred was easy to work with, responsive and helpful. The pool and patio area is gorgeous, each apartment is well appointed and clean, and the building is very well maintained. The neighborhood was quiet and near to stores, and the property was great for bringing our two dogs since it is completely enclosed.
The layout was ideal for us, a group of 14 that had several different couples and singles who didn't all know each other well. The different apartments gave everyone some privacy, and the central patio and pool were a great communal area.
I read the other reviews about the tight noise policy, but we had no issues. We sat outside and played cards and had some drinks till after midnight, but were conscious of the noise, and had no issues. I think if you're a reasonable group of adults, this shouldn't be a problem.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone with a big group who wants the best of both worlds - a group house experience, but the privacy of your own apartment or hotel room.
Hands down my favorite place I've stayed in Palm Springs (My fourth place I've rented). We were here to celebrate my Grandmother's 80th Birthday. Thirteen Palms was exactly how it was pictured in the photos. Fred's communication was on point. When we arrived he was there to meet us and give us a run down of the in and outs of the place. One of the bathrooms had minor trouble, but Fred sent a plumber out and it was fixed that same day.
The house is in a quiet neighborhood, close to some of my favorite restaurants and also super close to hiking trails that we took advantage of every morning. The layout of the house is perfect for large families and couples. The shared courtyard/pool area was where we hung out most of the time. You feel like you're in a Oasis, as all you can see are the palms and the San Jacinto Mountains when you look up. The pool and hot tub worked flawlessly.
We will be back!!
Fred was so great and his space is undeniably cool. We spent a long weekend there with friends for our wedding and it was absolutely perfect. The place is pricey but worth the money 100%. We had great memories there, thank you Fred!
We had breakfast outside with a group of people and did not have issues with noise complaints, contrary to some of the other reviews I read.
Thirteen palms was exquisite - the place was perfectly secluded and private, gorgeously appointed, and everything was in great working order. We hosted a yoga retreat for 16 women and could not have had a better or more relaxing time. Fred was a wonderful host who even stopped by on a Friday night to change a lightbulb for us. The venue is laid out so thoughtfully. We will definitely be back!
This unique property was ideal for our family gathering consisting of two grandparent couples and three younger families of four. We had 10 adults (2 per flat) and 6 kids between 1 and 7 years of age. We found the spaces aesthetically pleasing, simple and practical. All adults appreciated the privacy of the separate flats with kitchens--coupled with the common patio space.
The kids and their watchful parents loved the pool and the hot tub. We ate breakfasts often outside and dinner every night together at a table on the patio (and rented another one with Fred's help to accommodate a couple of occasions when we had additional guests for dinner. Heat lamps, when needed, and a great grill, made it all easy. For us Minnesotans, being outside was everything (we didn't see the inside of any restaurant). We were just 4 blocks from a good grocery store and Starbucks. Fred and Barry (who welcomed us) were great hosts and Fred was very responsive with the pre-arrival information and help we needed.
It is special to find a physical space that assures needed privacy, invites connections in a common courtyard and has space for home cooking and outside eating in the evening.
