"I booked this house for a bachelorette weekend and couldn’t have been happier. The house is nestled in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood a short drive to the center of everything. Acme was very friendly and responded promptly to a couple inquiries we had during our stay. The majority of our time was spent outside in the back yard pool area which is AMAZING. I highly recommend this spot."
Great pool and backyard
"The house was clean and big for 8 people. The pool and backyard was amazing. We had a great time hanging out at the pool. It was a very relaxing place. The only thing we didn’t like was the bathrooms. No counter space and shower head is very weak. But overall I highly recommend the house."
"Acme was great, very thorough and easy to work with. The house was ok, not anything special. The yard was great and the pool was perfect. The house is in a flight path so theres a bit of airplane noise but nothing too bad. Some issues with the house is there are no mirrors, so getting ready to go out at all was a bit difficult. The timer for the sprinklers seems a bit strange. They would go on about 6:30ish, right as we were sitting down to have dinner and they would soak the whole side of the table. They should probably water in the middle of the night or the early morning hours. "
Beautiful property! Fantastic yard and pool!
"As soon as we arrived, I kicked myself for not booking more days here. Everything was perfect. Spacious rooms, gorgeous outdoor space and convenient to shops. We had s’mores at the fire pit, bbq on the patio and perfectly chilled wine from the wine fridge. The pool is amazing with relaxing waterfalls. The master bed had massage features that were fantastic for my back pain. Foosball, pac man and board games helped make this one of our favorite desert retreats. We noticed caterpillars throughout the house and did our best to help them back outside. The air conditioning worked perfectly just like everything else in this home. The home instructions were effortless and organized. The manager was so nice and had great suggestions for local activities as well. We look forward to returning soon."
Pretty as a Picture!
"I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to use Franky's Hideaway as the location for a photo shoot. The pool yard was an amazing place for a shoot. The thick ficus hedge surround was the perfect back drop and made the yard so private. The pool was huge and yep - we took full advantage of the spa. The inside of the house was really cool. This is a great, affordable Palm Springs vacation home. Pretty as a picture!"
Second Stay at Frankys
"This is our second stay at Franky's Hideaway. We loved all the improvements since our last visit especially the huge new fire feature and benches. Thank you to the owners for making this fun property even better. We will be back!"
"Great experience. All the staff were kind, from the cleaning lady, to the pool guy. Good people.
"Nice clean house with comfortable furniture. Beautiful grass lawn and pool. The only thing that was a drawback was they don't allow ANY music to be played, inside or outside. Also there was no television directory or menu to review what was on T.v. you just had to go through them on channel at a time. "
"We had a great time. The house was amazing and worth the price. The noise ordinance was difficult as it is nearly impossible to speak at whisper volume when you have more than four people having fun in a pool. But that's more of a neighborhood thing than a house issue."
Beyond What Was Expected!
"We stayed in Franky's Hideaway the house had some issues but they were all fixed right away. The house was very very clean. Whatever issue we had we called the customer service and someone replied to us right away. We got a follow up call after our vacation and we were refunded some money for the inconvenience. They apologized for anything was wrong in the house. Overall, the house was clean the customer service was beyond expected. We will be returning next year."
Could Not Have Been Better
"My friends and I rented a beautiful Palm Springs house called "Franky's Hideaway" from ACME Vacation Rentals. The house was fantastic and the service from ACME could not have been better. They had a really useful app, they were very communicative, prompt and courteous, and they bent over backwards to ensure our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed. I would not hesitate to strongly recommend both ACME as a company/service, and Franky's Hideaway as a vacation rental for a group looking for a great four-bedroom house with lovely pool/hot tub. Five stars all round!"
"Overall experience was good, the house was clean, inside and out. Very good style and comfort. "
Loved our stay!
"Loved the many home options, and was very pleased with the cost and availability for the size of the house we wanted. Very good comfort and style! Especially loved the outdoor space!"
Very nice property!
"Nice, quiet, cute ranch that was updated and modernized. Best part was the pool and tons of bedroom space! Loved the pool and back yard set up, including the lime tree! I will highly recommend!"
"Excellent comfort, style and cleanliness! An overall excellent stay!"
A Quiet Hideaway!
"I liked the house amenities and the rental price. The best part was the ease in booking and the information provided for our stay. We were really surprised how quiet the neighborhood was. Excellent all the way around!"
Good comfort and value!
"The best part was the BBQ, pool and hot tub. We were surprised with the airport traffic! Good overall stay."
Very Good Overall Stay!
"Had an excellent arrival, and a very enjoyable stay! Very good style, cleanliness, and comfort."
A Great Stay!
Manager Response: You were great guests Izza. Don't forget to use your past guest discount when you come back to stay with us again!
"Cute home, and well equipped. Acme employees were all very professional. Would stay here again :) Thank you so much for having us!"
Excellent Overall Stay!
"Perfect for our requirements. We were really surprised how nice the outside amenities were. Great service!"
All that I wanted, and more!
"The house offered so much, four bedrooms, king size beds, and a fire pit! The best part was the the backyard! Excellent in meeting my overall expectations! "
Great house and service!
Manager Response: Only negative comment - we couldn't find either hair dryer and none of brought one because we were told there were two.
"The house was exactly like the pictures! The ACME team was very accommodating, and everyone I spoke to was so friendly and helpful. The ACME team is great and very attentive. When we arrived there was an issue with the toilet and Marvin came out in 30 minutes and fixed the issue.The ice machine didn't seem to be making ice fast enough and though we had already bought ice I wanted to let the team know and when I called again Marvin offered to bring us ice. It was very nice to know we were a priority. I will definitely use ACME again! (Manager note)"
Price, size and amenities, excellent!
"The rental process was easy and everything was explained in detail. There is even an app that you can download on your phone with more than enough information about the house and area! No hassle no fuss! Door code was provided so no one had to wait on us to arrive! The pictures of everything was so on point. The fully stocked kitchen was also a pleasant surprise. Excellent stay! "
"ACME House Co. made it very easy to reserve a house, had an extremely easy check-in, and we had great communication throughout our entire stay. We chose the house because it looked great in the pictures, and the price was within our price range. The pool was great, and the best surprise was when we discovered we had a hot tub! "
Good all the way around!
"Organized process for booking and easy to contact. We liked the ease of check in and check out, and all the representatives were easy to work with. Very good in our overall expectations and stay at this property. "
Service like a high end resort!
Manager Response: Thanks for the feedback - it is always helpful to get input from our guests. We wish the weather had been better during your stay - we had unseasonably chilly weather during your stay. The landscaping service for this home may have been pushed off regular schedule due to weather. We'll pass along your input to the homeowners about the kitchen supplies and extra blankets.
"We prefer to rent with ACME House Co. because of their immediate responsiveness to any problems, and they are amazing, making you feel like you are staying at a high end resort! We really enjoyed the amazing pool, but would suggest letting guests know when the pool cleaner and service would take place. The house could be stocked better, with extra comforters, sheets, plastic glasses and utensils,too. Overall a great stay!"
We Will Be Back!
"We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Franky's Hideaway, and hope to return soon! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and relaxing in the living room, as well as the number of bedrooms, and overall look of the property. The house was exactly what we were looking for! The location was great, and we liked the ability to park in the garage if we wanted, a really nice bonus feature in this heat. The home was very comfortable, but would recommend updating the kitchen cooking equipment, and consider stocking the kitchen with basic cooking items, such as vegetable oil, and commonly used condiments such as ketchup, mustard, etc. Also full size beach towels and floats, and additional lighting in the back yard would be nice,too! We look forward to returning."
Customer service was the best part!
Manager Response: Thanks Natasha. You were such gracious guests. All of our homes are privately owned. Just like in your home, sometimes little things can go wrong during a guest stay. But our team is ready, willing and well-equipped to handle almost anything that comes up right away. We look forward to you coming back to stay with us at Franky's HideAway.
"ACME House Co. was very professional and helpful with anything we needed. We checked out Acme on Yelp and found all the positive reviews. And the homes looked nicer on ACME than the other local sites. Biggest surprise was the supply truck that pulled up ready and prepared to help fix anything we needed! Great customer service."
Perfect inside and out!
Manager Response: Thank you for pointing out that the sink drained slowly, and that the master bedroom was warm to sleep in. We appreciate you letting us know the outside trash was already full when you arrived. We will have our Property Care team go out to the property to make the necessary repairs.
"The house was very nice and enjoyable for a weekend getaway! We picked the property due to the location, pricing and home layout. The best part was the pool and outside patio area. Appreciated how clean everything was. We would most likely stay again! "
Met My Needs!
"ACME House Co. has a great variety of beautiful homes for reasonable prices. Excellent decor, cleanliness, and style. The best part was the pool! An overall excellent stay."
Thank you for everything!
"Acme House Co. is easy to work with. Great location and amenities. Nice bedroom set up. Uncluttered and stylish. Best part was the view, the pool, the kitchen. Everything was great! Bathrooms were a bit small and the sprinklers/maintenance workers came at an awkward time, but those are pretty minor issues. Bathrooms were a little small. Beach towels were provided (wish we had realized because we packed our own). Thank you for everything! "
lovely family holiday
"Let me start by saying we have stayed in several palm springs rental homes, and all have been nice in their own ways. This was a wonderful home, clean, well kept, adorable, gorgeous and lush yard and pool. My family came from Midwest to celebrate thanksgiving and it was just perfect. Even though it was not super hot, (mostly low 70s to low 80s) the pool is heated and hot tub is perfect. We had a blast, and so did our dogs. Thanks Franky's Hideaway!"
Definitely coming back!
"Better than the pictures! Private and easy! Best deal! Met all of my expectations! Definitely coming back! "
