"Everything at the house was fantastic. Clean, plenty of amenities and all in the group loved it. I would highly recommend!
Spitnik was not the house we initially booked as we were informed the original house was sold by the owner. However, Acme made sure when the original house fell through that we were well taken care of. "
"The place is very cool and stylish. Had a great week with friends, working remotely and relaxing by the pool. Stay here, you won’t regret it !"
"This home was absolutely amazing, we loved the space themed rooms and the design was incredibly meticulous and thoughtful, down to the decor and home layout. We had a great time in the pool and were well located in Palm Springs proper."
"Thank you so much for another magical weekend! You guys are top notch and I can't wait to bring my family back!"
"Good place! The design was outstanding."
"Really nice large mid century house in Palm Springs central. Large bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Perfect for a group. We all had a good time"
Fun and Relaxing
"The house was everything and more. We stayed in the pool all day. The finishes in the house were all high end. The kitchen was well stocked with any and everything you could want. Beds were comfortable with nice linens. I would ABSOLUTELY stay there again. "
"I have been renting vacation rentals in Palm Springs for over a decade now and ACME has been an amazing experience thus far. As for Sputnik itself, it was definitely out of this world! My group and I thoroughly enjoyed the space theme in the home - it shows that the owner of the property actually put time into creating a humble and exciting vacation rental. The home was large and spacious with all the amenities needed in a vacation rental. The bedding and sheets were absolutely spotless and the home overall was super clean. One thing I would like to point out would be the WiFi. There were some issues with the WiFi as it kept disconnecting and shutting off on its own. However, the home itself completely exceeded our expectation and we are happily giving it a 5 star review. With all the chaos in the world right now, Sputnik was a great escape to a relaxing and fun atmosphere. We hope to visit Sputnik more in the near future. "
Spacious Home Away From Home
"Sputnick was a great experience for our entire family ages 1 1/2 to 70. The kitchen & dining room is so well set up for cooking for a large group. Bedrooms were very comfortable with quality mattresses & linens. The layout of the house was perfect for privacy & pool activity. It’s close to downtown Palm Springs so lots of great dining possibilities. Golf was close by too. The airport was slightly noticeable during some time periods during the day. Overall a great house theme with fun space memorabilia."
"House was perfect for our group, well outfitted and very clean"
"Wonderful house for a family weekend. We had everything we needed for cooking. Open floor plan. Great table for all our family. Living room had lots of space to hang out. We were very happy with the house."
Sputnik House was an absolutely amazing place to stay in Palm Springs!
"Sputnik House was an absolutely amazing place to stay in Palm Springs. It was bright, spacious and sparkling clean with lots of extra hidden details that made our time there even more special. The location was perfect for exploring the local area - it was easy to get to the main high-street and also just a couple of minutes drive to a lovely strip of shops; Cartel Coffee Lab, Shoppe, (ice cream and gifts), and Draughtsman, (bar). Highly recommend and hope to stay again!"
Could Not Have Been Better
"The house was quirky but in a very good way. Can't wait to get back."
Amazing Space Stay!
"Stayed here for a week for a business trip with 3 other coworkers. This was definitely an amazing place to unwind after a hard day at work.
The decor in this house is so well thought out.
We loved how each bedroom had its own specific theme.
The beds we large and extremely comfy. "
Loved This Place
"The owners of this house have to be the coolest people ever. We thoroughly enjoyed the tongue in cheek references to pop culture, the whole Space Craze vibe all wrapped up in Mid Century fun. Super clean, very comfortable home where you can relax and enjoy. Thanks Acme team - you were great hosts!"
Dreamy and Unique
"Truly a special place A bit of context for my review. I am a very experienced vacation home traveler, and my main complaint (especially in nice/pricey places) is lack of attention to detail. I've stayed in many places that are several hundred dollars a night only to sleep in polyester IKEA sheets, for example. But not Sputnik house! First off, we love cooking. This kitchen is well appointed with lots of gadgets, utensils, plates, and accoutrements. This makes it fun to be there and cook and hang out in a group. Secondly, the attention to detail and making various spaces and nooks cozy, comfortable, and delightful to socialize in is very well done. I stayed at the house with about 7 other friends, and I felt like there was plenty of private space, and areas for different groups to socialize in, whether it was in the kitchen, the dining room, living room or little places in between. Speaking of which, that spacey droplet chair is heavenly! The house is very clean (it looks like it was remodeled recently), and check in and check out was quite easy. I highly recommend this rental and would definitely stay there again. It is leaps and bounds above any other Palm Springs rental I've stayed in. "
Christmas as Sputnik
"My wife and I spent a few days during Christmas at Sputnik and we loved every bit of our stay. The house was spotless when we arrived and was equipped with absolutely anything we could think of, from kitchen supplies to an above average Internet connection/wifi coverage which was particularly useful as we had to get some work done during our stay. That being said, the most memorable aspect of this house was the decor, the attention to detail on every room really makes you feel truly nostalgic about the space age. Needless to say, we are already planning our next trip to this place."
Out of This World
"Sputnik is fun, sparkling clean, beautiful, relaxing, and private. Every last detail has been thought of, down to the space themed board games and the space museum! We had an absolute blast staying at the house. Grilled outside each afternoon and snuggled up by the fireplace at night. Eat out or eat in -- both are convenient and easy. The kitchen is generously sized, the dining room seats 10, and you have all of kitchen gear you need to make a truly epic feast (including a bright red KitchenAid!). The art throughout the house is beautiful and sets the scene perfectly. Truly an unforgettable stay -- we will be back! "
Mindfully modern details in an elegant remodel
"Sputnik House transformed our perception of Palm Springs in a positive way. There are rental homes with beds, kitchens and pools, but they lack details which we appreciate. The mattress gives a superb night sleep (king beds everywhere!) the kitchen prompted cooking in (Albertsons is 3 blocks away!) instead of eating out - because we didn't want to leave! The pool and outdoor lounge begged company to come over and enjoy the sunshine, warm and hospitality this home proffers. No reason to leave if you truly soak in everything! That said, getting around Palm Springs is easy given the location. I would stay anytime again and bring my entire family back!"
A Step Back In Time & Into the Future
"Sputnik House is a welcoming abode that is also both a time capsule and a place for hope and wonderment. For the earthling, it has all the comforts one could ask for: five bedrooms, bathrooms, a spacious and fully appointed kitchen where the best tools are to hand, to the Neptune Pool for a morning swim or a Late night skinny dip, a piano to entertain, and comfortable beds, and amenities throughout. While our group was large, none of us felt cramped as there are nooks and special spots to read quietly, soak up the sun, admire the beautiful mountains behind, or just relax. All the while, we were reminded of the space explorations of our country as well as those in the future. We left Sputnik House refreshed, reminded, and ready for new adventures, including a return to this very special space."
Outta this World!
"Spending time at The Sputnik house has been a dream come true for our family of friends. There are esentially two master bedroomsin this house and three full bathrooms inside and a bonus pool bathroom with shower, we didn't feel we lacked for space or privacy. We loved the Neptune Pool and the Comet Grill, it was so fun at night enjoying dinner under all the stars. It was also really neat to see the tram go up and down the mountain in the evening into the night. There is a little light traveling up and down until about 9pm that can be seen from the outdoor family dining table if you look up into the mountians. The whole outside situation was so lovely, we had complete privay in the backyard and a little font nook to read a book from a hanging chair or drink of morning cup of coffee. The kitchen was also really wonderful for our group, a few of us are very dedicated to the art of cooking and really appreciated that there were so many tools and kithcen gadgets available to us as well as the classic staples. We definatly want to make the trek back out there again soon for another great group vacay!"
