Recent Reviews About This Property

Perfect for families and indoor-outdoor living!

"We had a great stay here for a long weekend (in scorching mid-summer). The house is inspired by Palm Spring's quirk & charm, and perfect for groups of friends or large families travelling together. During our stay the pool was the biggest plus, and the AC never stopped once as we had 120F temps every day. ACME House Company provided amazing service, welcoming us and taking us through everything. The house also came with one of the most comprehensive guide books I've ever come across, outlining everything there was to know. "

Franc B. from , 08/07/2016

Ticks all the Boxes!

"The layout of the house is perfect for a large group. There's plenty of space to find quiet time alone, but then the backyard and pool are perfect for when you want to be around others. The neighborhood is quiet, the kitchen is stocked, and the house is ideally located so you can get to all the local hotspots quickly by car or Uber!"

Timm K. from , 08/07/2016

A Great Stay!

"Easy, streamlined service and communication. We chose this property for the charm,movie star glamour, and history. Loved arriving with perfect music playing, and a bottle of wine on the counter. "

Harrison P. from Los Angeles, CA, 07/24/2016

Loved everything from start to finish!

"Very easy to find the type of house I was looking for when dealing with ACME House Co.! Love the modern homes that Acme has to offer, and I never have a problem booking a stay. Fast, easy, and no back and fourth paperwork! During the stay they always checked with us to see if we needed anything, and to see how our stay was going. I already recommend a few friends to rent from Acme! This was my second stay, and again beyond thankful. Amazing and friendly staff. I love the unique decor and modern look the house has. Loved everything from the house, and the beautiful view, and the biggest surprise was the pool area, and the beautiful master bedroom. Completely satisfied with everything about my stay, and I will be a returning customer! "

Yelena V. from Van Nuys, CA , 04/24/2016

Price. Size. Look.

"Simple, easy, accommodating. ACME House Co. is an organized, well oiled machine! The best part was lounging poolside. Bigger house than expected. Really liked the key pad entry. "

Scott H. from Los Angeles, CA, 04/16/2016

Fantastic Vacation Rental!

"Really liked the location and style of the rental, and especially enjoyed the outdoor area. Excellent customer service. Our only issue was that the thermostat would not set below 78. Everything about the house, and your company was fantastic. "

Caryn C. from Hendersonville, TN , 01/24/2016
Manager Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The property owner is in the process of putting a new climate control system in the casita.

We wanted something that was fun!

"A comfortable home with great history & fun decorating. An easy location to many local attractions. The home was layed out nicely, very comfortable, and even though we viewed it on-line, the art work & decorating detail was amazing! Really enjoyed the backyard fire pit & pool. "

Annette J. from Mulino, Oregon, 11/13/2015

So Beautiful!

"We felt like Bond Girls staying in this gorgeous home. The living room had the coolest fireplace.The master bath was incredible. The entire property including the pool and the outdoor showers were perfect. Thank you Acme - you are the best. You really know how to show us girls a good time."

Donnie L. from Los Angeles, CA, 10/15/2015

Everything you want in a vacation home!

"This house exceeded our expectations. The property is pristine, and the house and the yard are amazing!"

Evan . from San Juan Capistrano, California, 10/12/2015

Amazing!

"This house exceeded our expectations. The property is pristine, and the house and the yard are amazing!"

Evan B. from San Juan Capistrano, 10/10/2015

Good Location and Style!

"Liked the ease of checking in. Price was right! Very comfortable for 5 of us and we all enjoyed the pool. Good location! "

Mike S. from Oakland, CA , 04/14/2015

The cleanest rental we've stayed at in Palm Springs!

"This superb, spotlessly cleaned house was the perfect size and layout for our family gathering. We loved the great location, the pool and the separate areas in the garden so people could read, swim or sunbathe. It was by far the cleanest, most well appointed rental we've stayed at in Palm Springs. We liked the house so much we rarely left it! Despite a few small issues (guest casita could use a ceiling fan and the mattress could be more comfortable) we had a wonderful time! Thank you ACME for being responsive to all of our needs!"

Rachel S. from Portland, Oregon, 03/30/2015

LOVED the house!

"Perfect location. Beautifully decorated house. Gorgeous backyard. We have a few thoughts for improvement for storage in one of the bedrooms. LOVED the house!"

Sara S. from San Diego, CA, 11/29/2014

Excellent

"We stayed at The Kirk Douglas House in early November 2014. Reservation process, arrival experience, cleanliness, style, comfort were all excellent. Yes. I would recommend an Acme House Co. stay to friends."

Douglas C. from Henderson, CA, 11/04/2014

"House was perfect for the five of us!"

"Everything we needed was provided and the house looked and felt very clean. We loved the pool and the outdoor fire pit. That master bath was pretty spectacular as well. Arrival experience, cleanliness, comfort, style all excellent. "

Jeanne B. from Dallas, TX, 09/24/2014

"I learned about Acme House Co. through my good friend Laurie Weitz. We rented two Acme properties for a family event weekend in Palm Springs. In planning the weekend I had a lot on my plate but Ken and the Acme team really did me a solid! We had my father Harry and a few others stay at the Villa Valencia property (very Adobe/Bloomingdales chic), while the rest of us stayed at The Kirk Douglas House. One of the best parts of the whole weekend was the look on my family & friends' faces when they saw where they were staying! The two properties were very different but both great. Everyone was comfortable and had a great time. The TUB in the MASTER at The Kirk Douglas House was the perfect tub for me. I was in it every chance I got. I WANT THAT TUB! If you are planning a visit to Palm Springs - call Ken at Acme House Co. and tell him Shari sent you!"

Shari Belafonte B. from West Hills, CA, 09/23/2014

Extremely successful Palm Springs trip!

"While looking at pictures of houses online, this one looked the coolest. I knew the decor was different and cool - based on pictures and other reviews but it still took me by surprise when we arrived. Everyone in our group was blown away! It had four bedrooms which is what we needed and the backyard seemed to be large (it was). The house was impeccable from top to bottom. Everything was clean, kitchen was extremely organized with every drawer labeled. The bedrooms were all beautiful and different. The master bathroom was INCREDIBLE! The decor was amazing! I could go on and on. I am already planning on returning to the home."

Patile K. from Northridge, CA, 08/19/2014

Beautiful, Elegant, Refreshing Retreat

"My wife and I and our three girls (aged 16, 13 and 9) stayed at the amazing, interior and exterior showpiece of a house; the The Kirk Douglas House in the hot desert summer of 2014. I'm not sure what has taken me so long to reply, to write this review: This place is a TEN. There is so much perfect about it, I don't have time in this space to provide all of the information that impressed and made us smile. From the coffee machine to the pavers in front and back, from the clean manicured landscape to the edgy and somehow apropos sketches and artwork, to the perfectly maintained pool, patio and barbecue, we loved it. All I could think of when we had been in the refreshing, visual show piece (it looked like an art museum to me) ...after looking through so many VRBO properties in Palm Springs and (other desert cities) was: where is the Sixth Star. I'd read through three, four and five star reviews. This place deserves a sixth! My wife and I knew that we were traveling with our climate sensitive daughters (we live in San Francisco Bay Area, the climate is not too difficult), our risk was taking a chance on Palm Springs in August. More than a few people warned us: they need 'chillers in the pools it is so hot there in the summer....it's so hot, the lizards duck for cover, it is so hot, the newspapers melt to the pavement, (and so on)...we took a chance; in large part because of helpful reviews on VRBO (hence, my late attempt to provide feedback, praise and to inform). Immediately upon walking in, from the fantastic, bold, artsy wall pieces, to the furniture, vases, sculptures, sketches and the giant pink pay phone on the wall, everything about Come Fly with me made us comfortable, brought us together to lounge and watch TV, to read in the relaxing heat of the desert summers and brought us together late late in the night playing in 80 plus degree temps in the pool (often til midnight.) Thank you for your artistic vision, your meticulous sense of maintenance and style and, most importantly for letting others share in your vision of a true get away and escape. We will be back!"

Brad O. from Novato, CA, 08/13/2014

First class operation!

"The app was great and the booklet with information had everything we could have needed. Appreciated the cleanliness and attention to detail. In the future, we will only rent from Acme! "

Patricia K. from Sheboygan Falls, WI , 06/21/2014

We would rent this home again!

"Overall the house was GREAT! The photos do not do it justice. The backyard and pool area are perfect and beyond comfortable. The living room could benefit from a couple of comfortable chairs alongside the sofa. The condom art print in the master bath seemed a bit inappropriate. We would rent this home again! "

Elizabeth G. from Minneapolis, Minnesota, 05/30/2014

Perfect for a family get-away!

"This house is perfect for a family get-away. Best part was the outdoor accommodations, i.e. pool, seating areas. Other than not knowing how to turn on the heat in the pool, everything was perfect. We had an awesome time. "

Norman G. from Norwalk, CA, 05/09/2014

Wow, exceptional, superb

"What a truly amazing house to stay in. I always judge a house by my kids reaction, they could not stop running from room to room pointing out everything they loved. The people from ACME were brilliant and made us most welcome. The house was immaculate with a very different 'get away from it all' vibe. We truly had a magical time in 'Come Fly With Me' and look forward to our next ACME rental."

Steve C. from Sligo, Ireland, 05/07/2014

Our stay was great! No surprises!

"The house was incredibly unique and stylish, and filled with great amenities. Also, the cost, relative to the luxury of the house, was extremely reasonable. We only had two items that were in any way negative. First is that the landscaping crew came as we were trying to enjoy the pool. The rental staff was responsive on this though. The second - please water less during this California drought. Just put in astroturf! Or more hardscape. Aside from having too much grass for our taste the landscaping was amazing. Our stay was great, and the house was as anticipated. We really loved the art and got a lot of enjoyment from the uniqueness of the house. "
