Tastemaker Gina Louise Goes Beyond The Gates in Palm Springs

PALM SPRINGS, CA- New York Designer-Lifestyle Influencer & Blogger, Gina Louise takes us beyond the gates of Lions Gate Estate, a walled and gated compound in the Palm Springs Movie Colony.  While spending the season here in the desert, Gina toured the newest addition to the Acme House Company vacation rental portfolio.

Gina’s tour guide for the day was the Award-winning designer, Francie Flynn – who collaborated with Acme House Company to create the vibe at Lions Gate Estate. The entire property is an homage to Old Hollywood and its connection to Palm Springs.  Vintage movie posters and photographs of silver screen legends adorn the walls – reminding us of all the celebrities who have had strong ties to our desert paradise.

Gina Louise was one of the first to tour Lions Gate Estate – which is now available as a luxury vacation home rental. The property captures the magic of Southern California glamour – swimming pools, movies stars and plenty of sunshine.  Completely walled and gated for privacy and enclosed by a mature ficus hedge – you will feel as though you just stepped into an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. Staying at Lions Gate Estate is like vacationing at your own private resort.

Designer Francie Flynn, who was just named Best of the Best Interior Designer by the Desert Outlook Magazine’s Ultimate Pride List – gives tastemaker Gina Louise the background on the Lions Gate Estate, the Movie Colony neighborhood and its connection to Hollywood of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

Lions Gate Estate is a perfect location- it’s just a short stroll to the world-famous Palm Canyon Drive and just one block from Ruth Hardy Park. It has a spacious sprawling floor plan with 4 deluxe master suites, a billiard room, a media room, living room with fireplace, oversized interior dining room suitable for 10-12 guests and a large center island kitchen. Stunning resort-style property with gorgeous mountain views. 3 car garage, gated off-street parking.

After spending a few hours getting to know Lions Gate Estate, Gina immediately booked her own stay for early 2018 and published a story about her tour on her Blog. As for the final results –  or as they like to call it in Hollywood- The Martini Shot,  you can read the full story on  Gina Louise’s blog.
