Birthday Weekend!

5 of 5

Girls' weekend with my daughters and our besties! I looove the heat, so Palm Springs in July is perfect for me. The MCM was on point, everything was super clean, there was plenty of space for eight to play and six to sleep (following the rules!). The road is very loud with many firetrucks, but we were close to everything including the Best Bookstore, Pink Palm, thrift stores, groceries and great Mexican food. This house was spectacular and the pool was amazing. Already planning our next trip.

Beautiful and peaceful

5 of 5

The house is beautiful and the amenities were great. The area is very quiet and peaceful. There was a reviewer who mentioned the car noise from the busy street but the noise machines in the bedrooms are great at canceling it out. The pool accessories could use a refresh. Other than that our stay was perfect and ACME is great at responding with any questions. Definitely will stay here again!

Great house and amenities. Right on a busy road which was not ideal but each room was equipped with a white noise machine which helped. Kitchen was fully stocked and great for cooking meals. Pool and hot tub were perfect. Loved the decor, furnishings and overall ambiance.

Unbelievable Beauty and Peace in a Historic Home

5 of 5

I love ACME. Their service team are responsive and helpful. They are managing glorious mid Century Modern dreamboats with every mod con you'd need. The pool and jacuzzi were heated (it is winter!) and the kitchen was full of plates and glasses and cooking accoutrements. A guide was provided, updated, to tell you where to eat and drink. The bed was ultra comfortable! It was amazing, having two bathrooms! Not used to that at all. We came for the PS Film Festival, and I would def return and book an ACME home. Because these are not just houses. This place felt like home! We had a view of the mountains to die for, and could watch the tram make its way up the mountain at night. If I could ask for anything, it would have been perhaps some standing lights, so that you could sit, for example, on the sofa, and read a book, without having to use the overhead lights. But this is a small request. We loved our experience!

We loved staying in Palm Springs again and this was the perfect property for our family - only issue was the landscapers came on a different day and did a lot of work - this could have been better communicated / managed. Would stay here again :)

Awesome! Highly Recommend

5 of 5

We needed a place to catch our breath and hide out in the desert. This place rocked! It's exactly the right size for a small family for an extended stay like ours, or larger if for a few days. The pool is great. The hottub, too. We couldn't use the fire feature because of the high winds at night (fire safety, y'know?). The inside was a dream, a mid-century modern dream of orange and teal, tastefully done and augmented with interesting and appropriate architectural reading material. This house ticked all the boxes, and we'd come back anytime.

Best Place to Hide Out

5 of 5

We lost our home and needed a place to stay for over a week as our new home got ready. This mod house with a pool was a fantastic break in our frantic reality. It's very different from how we normally live, and we love that. We even learned a few things about midcentury modern architecture thanks to their well-chosen books in the house. And the pool was just right! Highly recommended.

Mid Century Dream

5 of 5

The property was perfect as it checked off all the boxes for us. The interior is very clean, roomy and comfortable. My only suggestion to be more family friendly, would be to add another TV in the primary bedroom or office as there is only one television in the living room. This home overall was our favorite out of all the PS rentals we had thus far. We definitely want to rent this home again.

Great getaway!

5 of 5

This property is as stunning as pictured and had all of the amenities one could want. The pool and yard were perfect and the location is great being located so close to downtown; dining and shopping. The house was also right near a playground which was ideal for our young child. Only downside is it’s location on a busy street with bedrooms located at the front of the house with decent road noise. We would still stay again regardless.

We spent 5 delightful days in PS for a wedding. We brought our children and their spouses for a family rendezvous. Lots of relaxing time around the pool/hot tub. The white noise machines in each bedroom worked well to block street noise. ALMOST close enough to downtown shopping and restuarants to walk, but a very short drive. Would stay again for sure!!

Mid-Century Modern

5 of 5

Great example of period architecture that is well maintained from an exterior and interior design perspective. The neighborhood is off of a busy street, which wasn't an issue for us, but can be noisy. It is also in a windier part of town. Once again, it is part of the town and topography, not a fault of the property. Well-appointed kitchen, fun interior design, clean and well-maintained. Owner provides towels for the pool. Third bathroom off of the pool is nice so don't get tracking through the house. Perfect for our stay and all-in, very nicely done.

Thank you, we're glad you had a wonderful time. We'll look into the A/C noise concern. Thank you for letting us know.

The main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and the two guest rooms share easy access to the bathroom in the hallway.

A wonderful mid-century getaway!

The beautiful house was clean and ready from the start of our visit and had the perfect layout and Palm Springs vibe. It was very hot so the pool was necessary and welcoming! We had everything that we needed and if not, there was plenty of shopping close by. We will definitely come back here again!!

Our stay was very enjoyable. It's a beautiful pool and yard. The house was clean and easy to access. In the evenings, there were some cicadas that dropped in the pool, which freaked out my wife, but she's deathly scared of any bugs. I'd stay here again. There is a grocery store 5 min away and downtown Palm Springs is 10 min away.

Weekend Getaway

5 of 5

We wanted to get the family out of the house and do a mini vacation that was not too far away. We had a great time. The pool was perfect. The beds were comfortable, only wish one of the rooms had double beds (my kids did not want to share a bed). The best part of our stay was the well stocked kitchen!! It had everything you need and every cabinet was labeled (the ocd in me loved this). This house was also not to far from the main drag. Note to property manager: the outlet by the outdoor bathroom, lights above the bbq, and the light/fan above the patio table did not work.

Overall Comment Excellent layout and amenities for family gathering; great pool and hot tub, spotless, nicely decorated interior. Acme was very good to deal with. Location drawbacks: daily high winds in this part of town limited outdoor use; morning traffic noise from location along busy 4-lane main arterial (45mph) is very audible from bedrooms.

House was great. It was immaculate. There are 3 bathrooms, not 2 as listing states. The third is outside by pool. Outdoor area is lovely. Hammock was fun. Kitchen is well stocked. Area is convenient to town. Management staff is extremely responsive. Large playground across the street, so great for families with children. Small negative is that this area of town is breezier than I had expected. Would be great in summer, but was chilly in March.

Relaxing Stay, Wish I could Stay

5 of 5

Overall Comment We loved staying in this rental. The unit was clean and so well stocked with basic items you would need for a week+ long stay. The pool was perfect and the firepit was a nice perk as well as the outdoor dining area! The bedrooms and bathrooms were all very clean and tidy with plenty of towels, paper products, toiletries and extra sheets. The kitchen was also well equipped for everything you would need to cook a meal, grill or store/serve food. Also a nice perk to have a washer/dryer with detergent to use! One great suggestion would be to have bikes for use or have the ability to rent one from the house!

Fantastic visit to Palm Springs

5 of 5

Overall Comment We stayed in Papillon House. It was lovely. 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. House is described as having 2 baths, but there is another full bath just outside the door in patio area. House was immaculate. Kitchen was well stocked, better than any other house I've ever rented. Lots of spices, foil and plastic wraps. Lots of towels. There is a large playground across the street, which would benefit families with small children. It is in an area of P.S. which is breezy. Debris blew into pool, but pool was cleaned very often. Breeze would be good in summer, but was a little chilly when we were there in March. Management staff was very responsive.
