The Space

Located in the Movie Colony/Ruth Hardy Park area - Villa Altamira, a 3150 square foot 3 bedroom 3.5 bath paradise. A short 10 minute walk to downtown Palm Springs with restaurants, art galleries and shops. Enjoy the Thursday night "Village Fest" with arts and crafts and farmer's market. Minutes from January's Palm Springs International Film Festival venues, as well as the Coachella Valley's many golf courses. 1 short block to Ruth Hardy Park where you can play tennis (8 public courts), beach volleyball, or just watch the kids play at the playground.
The Mountain views from the pool, the spa, the dining room, and kitchen are spectacular. The sun drenches the new pool and spa for swimming and tanning. Barbecue on the natural gas grill in the evening and dine under the covered patio or out under a star filled sky. Maybe you'll step inside for a game of pool with family and friends.

The fully appointed Chef's kitchen is a combination of granite counters and stainless appliances, including a 6 burner Viking range.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It was such a wonderful and relaxing stay at Jennifer's place! Everything was looking exactly how it is presented in the pictures. We felt very comfortable and welcomed! Too sad that we had to leave. We would love to come back! A pretty house with everything you need in a nice neighbourhood and a perfect spot to start with exploring Palm Springs. Having breakfast outside at the pool with the hummingbirds around you, will be one of our memories we are able to take with us back to Germany. Highly recommended!

  • WOW!! Jennifer's house exceeded our expectations! The house and grounds are spectacular, we spent lots of time relaxing by the pool and even had some friends over for a bbq to celebrate my 40th bday! The neighborhood was very centrally located in the upscale movie colony area; close to downtown, restaurants and shopping. Jennifer was very friendly and prompt at getting back to questions prior to our trip and Mario made checking in and out very quick and efficient. It was our first time using airbnb, and definitely won't be our last. We would absolutely love to visit Jennifer's Fab Private Relaxed PS getaway again!!! Not a negative thing to be said about our experience. THANKS!

  • We are three couples from San Diego who just spent a wonderful week in Jennifer's beautiful Palm Springs house. Everything was just as pictured. Mario met us at check-in and showed us how to use the various systems in the house, (email hidden) system that plays everywhere, if you wish to use it, HD TV's, wifi, etc. He was very helpful and told us to call anytime if we needed anything. But we never did because the house was perfectly stocked with everything you can possibly want, especially the gorgeous kitchen. We all loved everything about this house and would certainly want to return whenever we are in Palm Springs!

  • We had the most enjoyable stay at this beautiful house! The house was even better than it looked in the pictures and the extra little amenities like the speaker system throughout the house, pool table, and jacuzzi made this a house I'll definitely want to come back to. The house manager, Mario was very helpful and friendly. The backyard is HUGE and the pool was heated for us when we arrived. Kitchen is state of the art with lots of seating. It's also close to downtown so we were able to walk to dinner each night, which was nice! Love this house and can't wait to come back!

  • We had a wonderful four days at this property which is built and maintained to a very high standard. Jennifer communicated very well and everything was fully explained to us. Mario met us on arrival and showed us around the property explaining where everything was and how it works.
    The lay out of the house is perfect for two or more sets of adults maintaining complete privacy and also providing so much room that it allowed everyone to maintain their space.

    The inside of the house is gorgeous and the outside is just as beautiful. The pool area was just perfect and the views of the mountains are spectacular. The property is a nice and easy 15 minute walk from downtown Palm Springs and the Ruth Hardy park is just around the corner.

    When we return to Palm Springs we will definitely try to re-book this property.

  • This place is amazing! We had a lovely week here. The pool and backyard is amazing, and the hot tub was a great nighttime (and morning!) activity. A large blooming orange tree provided us with fresh juice, and the kitchen was fully stocked. Thank you so much....we had a blast :) Close to downtown activities, the aerial tram, shopping, and bars.

  • This is an amazing house and worth every penny. We stayed as three couples and it couldn't have been better. Mario was great checking us in, and the house was even bigger than I expected. The kitchen is amazing - fully stocked with everything you need utensil wise. All three bedroom's had TV's and en suite bathrooms, and the Master bedroom was as big as my own apartment. The pool and hot tub are perfect, surrounded by immaculate grass. On top of this, our hosts were very flexible about certain things, like check in and check out, which made everything very easy. Highly recommend this house and we will definitely be back.

  • A small group of friends and I stayed at this absolutely fabulous house for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was state of the art, the rooms in prestine shape, the kitchen fully stocked, it was fantastic. We stayed in everyday and cooked and stayed out by the pool. We are looking into doing it again soon because we had a perfect weekend. I would reccomend this place to anyone who wants to have a most relaxing time in Palm Springs.

  • I had an amazing birthday weekend at this lovely house. I will definitely stay here again and so would all my friends. It was everything I expected from the pictures and more. I loved that each bedroom had it's own full bathroom. Makes it a lot easier when it's an all girls trip. The location was so convenient to downtown.

My husband and I love the easy going pace of Palm Springs, which makes it a favorite weekend destination. We enjoy good food and wine, skiing and cycling. A best day is one with a ride, finished off by a great glass of wine while enjoying the sunset.
