Escape to our relaxing ranch-style home. Splash in the 50' pool, complete with spa and tanning bench, surrounded by citrus, bougainvillea, and jasmine. Glass doors invite the outside in: dine alfresco on the shaded patio or stretch out in the full sun. Socialize indoors in the open-layout living area, then nap in bedrooms painted in calm adobe colors. At sunset, admire a stunning mountain view -- and at night, watch the yard flicker with shifting rainbow lights. The City of Palm Springs ID#4079

The space
Our three-bedroom, two-bath home offers a desert retreat with mountain views from the front and the back of the property. Decorated in earth tones and images of the Southwest, it’s filled with golden Southern California light.

The backyard is beautifully landscaped with a large pool and spa. As with many rentals in Palm Springs, we have a daily pool/spa heating fee. We adjust this for the season - please contact us for more details.

The fully-equipped kitchen includes a gas range, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher. A window over the kitchen sink looks out at the pool and the open space beyond. A large countertop open to the living room lets the chef stay part of the action and makes a great breakfast bar.

The living room includes a Samsung Smart TV for bingeing on your favorite streaming shows. The dining table stands between two glass doors, bringing the outdoors inside. And at the front door, an automated Brinks security system gives you peace of mind.

The master bedroom has a king bed while the other two have queens. Each has a full closet with inset shelves and drawers. And each bedroom has a view: the master bedroom looks out at the pool and open space, while the other two face the mountains.

Should you need to get some work done while you're here, two of the bedrooms have small desks with office chairs and acrylic mats. One bedroom has an ethernet outlet in the far corner of the room, and we provide a 25' ethernet cord so that you can take full advantage of the 400mbps connection with Spectrum internet.

You’ll probably want a car when you visit us, although taxi and app-based services are excellent in Palm Springs. The city allows you to have up to three cars, one parked in the garage and two in the driveway. The garage has an automatic door, plus an entry directly into the house convenient for loading and unloading. You’ll find a washer and dryer in the garage as well.

The Palm Springs airport is only 5 minutes away, and downtown about 7 minutes. We are only a block from Vista Chino, with supermarkets and restaurants just down the street. Also nearby is the Escena golf club, whose outdoor restaurant offers stunning views. Or skip the car altogether and take off by bicycle to explore the popular parks and hiking trails in the area.

Guest access
When you stay at Casa Azahara, you have the entire property to yourself. Since the back side of the property is open space, you only have two neighbors -- also with large lots. While we ask that you be respectful of them, there is plenty of space for everyone.

Other things to note
Palm Springs Taxes

Palm Springs charges an 11.5% transfer occupancy tax which Airbnb will include in your quote. This amount will increase to 12.5% in July 2021. Note that if you stay 30 days or more, this tax is waived.


Palm Springs Regulations

With the exception of the non-smoking policy, all of the following are regulations that apply to all vacation rentals in Palm Springs. Respecting these rules allows us to offer our home to you and future guests.

• Our home is for low-key retreats, not parties. Palm Springs has strict noise ordinances and we take them seriously. If any neighbor complains about music or noise, this can put our license in danger and subject you to a hefty fine from the city.

• We do not permit smoking of any kind on the property with the exception of the driveway and at the benches in the corner of the backyard. Evidence of smoking anywhere else will result in total forfeiture of deposit.

• No rentals to anyone under 25 years of age.

• Maximum overnight guests: 6

• Maximum daytime guests: normally 10, but during COVID only 6 - the same people who are renting the property

• The Palm Springs Vacation Property Rental Agreement must be completed and signed within 24 hours of arrival. The agreement must be signed by every adult staying in our home.


About Us

We divide our time between Palm Springs, Colombia, and Fort Lauderdale. We used to rent out our home in Fort Lauderdale and hope to do that again one day… and are hoping to share a property soon in Colombia as well! Please stay in touch if you’d like to know more.

People have asked us, why "Casa Azahara"? Well... we love citrus trees, and "azahar" is the Spanish/Arabic word for orange blossom. It also means bright and shining, like the sunlight in Palm Springs, and is the name of a famous medieval palace in Spain. Our logo is based the beautiful arches that appear throughout the ruins there.

If you're curious about us, Juan trained as a lawyer, works with homeless families, and does bodywork on the side. Mark trained as a singer and actor, works as an application developer, and performs South American music on the side (search for "Mark Baum Music" on the web).

I'm originally from Colombia where I worked as a lawyer. Now I'm the Chief Operating Officer for a San Francisco non-profit that serves homeless families, and I moonlight as a certified massage therapist. My husband Mark and I have been together since 2000 and have three awesome dogs (Luna, Leo and Lilly). I work out at the gym every day, love to travel (always open to new adventures), and pride myself on being a great host.
