Sophisticated old world European charm meets modern Zen with a touch of South Pacific influence. Zen Dreams is a beautiful, tranquil, garden paradise located on a quiet residential street in Tahquitz River Estates. Walled in by a hedge of mature ficus trees, this property with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths features a huge private yard with an oversized, sundrenched pool with spa, covered patios, multiple outdoor dining spaces, and breathtaking mountain views. The park-like setting is gorgeous. After being in the owner's family for generations, this spacious home has been re-imagined to create the perfect vacation retreat. No garage access but there is off street parking at this home
Renowned Palm Springs designer Jay Jones brought his signature eclectic style to this nearly 2,300 square foot mid-century home, mixing its classic California Spanish-inspired architecture with modern furnishings, period antiques, Asian artifacts and contemporary artwork to create a fresh, sophisticated, welcoming residential resort - reminiscent of the homes you typically see grace the pages of Elle Decor and Veranda magazines. Magnificent tile work, detailed wood work, french doors and modern updates add to the compelling allure of this quintessential desert escape.
The kitchen has been completely remodeled. The baths have been updated. The bedrooms (one king and two queens) have been beautifully appointed. The open layout of the living areas gives way to walls of glass, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living in true Palm Springs-style.
You could choose to spend your entire vacation inside the walls of this gorgeous mini estate - afternoons by the pool and evenings under the stars. But if you are up for discovering all that Palm Springs has to offer, you'll be pleased to know that this paradise we call Zen Dreams is conveniently located less than a mile from bustling Downtown and in walking distance to the South Palm Springs district. South Palm Springs has recently experienced a major hip and trendy revitalization. You'll be just a short stroll from some of Palm Springs' newest and highest rated hot spots and restaurants like The Purple Room, The New York Company, The Ace, Appetito, and Miros. South Palm Springs also offers a huge selection of art galleries, mid-century consignment stores and estate sale shops. Grocery stores, sandwich shops, burger joints, liquor stores and other neighborhood conveniences are just a stone's throw from this tranquil desert escape. Koffi South, one of the best people-watching stops in Palm Springs, is less than a mile away. World-class hiking trails, a themed water park, movie theaters, our casino, and live entertainment venues are all located less than a mile form this fabulous piece of heaven.

Pool was Amazing
"“The property manager's communication was A+. We had all of our check in instructions within hours of booking the reservation, and during our stay they answered our call immediately and solved our problem within an hour!! The home itself was very "Zen" indeed. Very peaceful neighborhood, and the privacy afforded by the hedges surrounding the pool was amazing!”"
Delightful and Restful
"This wa everything I wanted and more. Comfort and lots of room and a fabulous outside area.
It was very well equipped in a unique style which grew on me!
I would certainly return!"

"A wonderful, well appointed property. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home!"
"Wonderfully relaxing!! Great house. We are repeat stayers there because it's such an accommodating home."
Short and hot, but absolutely wonderful!!!
"We spent a lot of the time in the house because of the heat. it was comfortable and had some great movies. The pool might have been too warm for some, but because I was suffering from 2 herniated discs in my back, the temperature was ideal. Can't wait to go back next winter."
"Acme House Co. was great. So easy to work with. The house we stayed at was Zen Dreams. Fantastic house in a great neighborhood. The kitchen was incredible. Everything was top drawer. Day or night perfection"
Can't Wait To Stay With Acme House Company Again!
"We loved our stay at Zen Dreams. This is the 4th time we have stayed at this property. We just love it. I also have to say that the service from Acme House Company was exceptional. We had a leak in our bathroom which occurred on a holiday. Not only did the repair people come immediately....but after they were done with the repair, they sent housekeeping over just to freshen up! On a holiday. We were all very impressed! Anyway...the house is well stocked, well situated...and just a pleasure. The pool was perfect. All around a terrific week...and we can't wait to come again and stay with Acme House Company!"
A Great Choice!
"This is a great place with a great private front pool and big grassy area. Privacy comes in the form of very tall hedges surrounding the front yard and pool. Lots of outside seating area, and a very often used permanent awning (Lanai), where you can enjoy lots of shade,and a hang out area for eating while looking out at the front yard and pool. Lots of doors also to open up and feel like your inside is partly outside. Bathrooms and kitchen have been upgraded with new counters and appliances. A/C works very well, as well. There is also a large TV in the TV room and 2 of the 3 bedrooms have TVs as well."
A Zen-ful Time!
Manager Response: Thank you Brian. Zen Dreams is one of our favorites - but we love all of the properties we manage. Don't forget to use your past guest discount code when you reserve your return visit.
"Easy booking and check in with ACME House Co., and they offered a great variety of rental properties. Super easy, on time check in with a person from Acme showing me the house. Easy to get a hold of someone at Acme when I needed them. Liked the style of the house and pool, and the ability to bring my dogs. Best part was hanging in the pool and relaxing all weekend! Looking forward to coming back to either this property or another one you have! (Want to try the West Elm House next!)"
We love Palm Springs
"ACME House Co. was very accommodating to our needs, and very easy to deal with. A very nice selection of homes. I've rented from them several times. Excellent arrival, style, and cleanliness! Best part was the big yard with lots of grass, that my dog loved! Very good overall stay."
Excellence at its best!
"Excellent arrival! Excellent comfort! Excellent cleanliness! Excellent style! An overall wonderful time!"
Fresh juice in the morning!
"Zen Dreams has a great yard. Loved it! However inside is a great layout, but style was not typical Palm Springs. Loved the fresh grapefruit from the grapefruit tree! Overall, we loved our stay and whenever we had a problem your team was very friendly and responsive. "
We Keep Returning!
Manager Response: Thanks for being a loyal repeat guest Marc. We really enjoy having you and yours with us. Please remember to use your past guest discount when you make a reservation for your next visit.
"This was our third year at Zen Dreams. We really like this property a lot. Really appreciate the ease of reservations, and the great diverse catalog of homes. Fast service when anything went wrong. Overall, excellent care and service! We are really happy with Zen Dreams. It's a great neighborhood and property. And, it was warm enough this year to go swimming!!!! The weather was GREAT this year!!! Really made the stay much more enjoyable!"
A Great Stay in Palm Springs!
Manager Response: Hello Lee - thanks for the feedback. You were a great guest. As part of our service, our team sets the pool temperatures - that's why it wasn't in the House Manual. Glad we were able to get right out to you. We don't usually heat the pools in September since its still very warm here then. But glad you reached out to us to get it up and going for you. Re the check out time - we really need enough time before the next 3:00 check in to clean our properties thoroughly and get them ready for the next guest. In the future - if you want a late check out - let us know ahead of time. You might want to use your past guest discount toward the cost of the late check out.
"ACME House Co. was friendly, easy to deal with, easy to reach, and quick to respond. We found that they had a good selection of properties, and I liked that everything was included in the cost. The best part was just being away. The pool and spa were not heated upon my arrival, and the instructions in the house manual only included how to operate the spa jets and lights...not how to turn on the heat for pool and spa. I had to call and someone came out to turn these on. I loved the house manual and the amount of information included in there. I did not like the very early check out time at 10:30. This could make a difference when I choose a place for my next stay. "
Pleased in every way!
"Thorough experience - everything included, as advertised. I found a house I liked in my price range, size needed, and availability. The best part was the immediate access to a real person on the phone, and immediate followup when we requested something! The biggest surprise was how upgraded all the appliances/amenities were, and how well stocked the kitchen was! "
Lucky to rent from ACME!
"We found ACME House Co. efficient and friendly, and were impressed with their level of service! We were surprised by the overall cleanliness of house! Had a great stay, and were lucky we found you! "
Loved the comforts of home!
"Having more space than a hotel felt awesome. The neighbors house was getting worked on so there was some noise a few of the days for a few hours. Very good style and comfort!"
If we could buy it, we would!
Manager Response: I did note earlier a few things that you should check in the house. The sprinklers are a bit off in that they come on everyday and with the drought that's probably not a great idea. Also, the mattress pad in the master bedroom does not fit the bed. It pops off all the sheets and is very uncomfortable. Also, fitted sheets might help as well.
"This is our 2nd time at Zen Dreams, and we very much like this house and neighborhood. bIf this house were on the market, we'd be interested in buying it! ACME House Co. are very easy to deal with, professional, and totally on the ball, and on the case. This our third time renting from you and we have always been consistently happy. It all was very enjoyable, and we really had no bad experiences. See manager note"
"ACME House Co. was very easy to deal with, and the location, and the options of homes was what we were looking for. We really liked the location and the pool. The kitchen equipment could use some updating of pots and pans, cutlery, and dinnerware. Thanks for a great stay."
Loved the house!
"The house was beautiful and very well cared for and maintained. Acme was great about providing instructions, etc., and everything was so easy. The best part was the peace and quiet and beauty of the house. We had an amazing time! Thank you-we hope to be back to Zen Dreams next year! "
"There were six adults and we all spent time checking out the other vacation rentals and we all agreed on Zen Dreams. It was beautiful, clean and well decorated. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and then some. The neighborhood was lovely and quiet. Having those beautiful mountains real close was a must. Besides enjoying the home, we were all family and we so enjoyed spending time together. The swimming, watching movies, cooking together, checking out star's homes and the many other things we did together as a family was the best part. We enjoyed a day at Joshua Tree National Park, and it was so much more than we expected, and one of the highlights of our trip."
Good price, Big house, Excellent customer service!
Manager Response: Thank you very much for sharing a few suggestions to improve and also repair items at our property. We have taken note of the items and will have our Property Care team look into all items listed. *Need better instructions to power up the refrigerator * The Spa lamp was not working. * The BBQ grill last 2 burners were not working properly. * I also notified you about the sheets that they was not clean ( i used my own sheets anyway) But i think this would be really big problem for me if i didn't have my own (so i suggest that some one check for cleanness before new guests arrive.
"I wanted a private place that had a pool and spa, with a good price, available on the days I wanted! We enjoyed our stay in the house very much! !t was exactly like the pictures, and the pool was nice. ACME House Co. was very responsive, and helpful. We had a minor problem, and they sent someone to fix it on the same day. The kitchen was brand new, including all the appliances! Thanks again for hosting us, we really enjoyed our stay!"
Loved our time outdoors!
Manager Response: Thank you for pointing out that the grass and patio areas could have been cleaned a bit better, and the temperature of the pool was too warm. We will have our Property Care team look into this right now.
"A nice week spent at the property. Customer service was very good and we chose the house from pictures we liked on-line. Enjoyed our time outdoors! We will book again!"
The right size with the right amenities!
"Liked the iPhone app! Made our arrival and departure super easy. Acme House Co. was easy to work with, and had a variety of property locations and styles. They made it easy to find a house that met our needs in size, amenities and location at a fair price. Felt like a home, not a hotel."
"Very nice properties and very attentive service. Our few issues were handled promptly and professionally. I have rented from Acme House Co. in the past and was pleased with the service. The grounds of the home were just lovely and perfect for our 2 dogs. Loved the neighborhood as well. "
"The entire rental process was the most efficient that I've experienced. The response from Acme was quick, reliable and ultimately very accurate. The process was simple and because everything was available digitally, including the rental contract and instructions for the house - it just made things simple. Everything was great! "
The layout of the house is perfect!
"We always stay at a different homes when we travel to Palm Springs. Makes it more fun and exciting for the family. My husband said this is his favorite so far. He was able to relax. The layout of the house is perfect. You have views of the pool and yard almost throughout the whole house. The yard is very green and well kept. Comfortable and relaxing. Great for families with kids. My daughter saw a frog early in our stay which excited the kids. Then on our way out we finally saw him swimming in the pool. We took him out and he hopped away!"
