|My wonderful home in Palm Springs , which I have named Casa Palma for the many wonderful palms that surround us on the property, is very special for quite a number of reasons.|
One in particular is that although it is located in the condominium complex named Villa Alegre it is a completely free standing home with no shared walls. There are 3 swimming pools and 3 Jacuzzis, so none of them is ever crowded with people. I feel as though I don't have any neighbors. It is truly a wonderfully peaceful place, with the only sound being the singing of the birds and the breeze rustling through the fronds of the many palm trees which grow on the property. Also home to many fruit trees, we delight in going out in the morning and picking the best pink grapefruit, oranges and lemons for breakfast, and they are in season almost all year around!
The view from my living room terrace is truly spectacular, with color exploding from the many flowers and plants all around us, and the verdant green of the lawn spreading over to the spa and swimming pool and then upwards into the rugged pine mountains of Idylwild.
We are home to many species of wild birds, including flocks of hummingbirds almost year round, families of quail, and even a few roadrunners which entertain us with their antics daily. We even have several falcons and hawks which make some of our many trees their home. Its not uncommon to see a hawk sitting on the safety railing of the swimming pool and taking in the sunshine. I feed the birds daily and I encourage my friends and guests to do so also.
Inside our fully air conditioned home, we have 25 foot tall vaulted ceilings, a fireplace in the living room, and granite and marble furniture grace all the rooms throughout. Both bathrooms are complete with tubs and showers, and the sunken tub in the master bathroom is truly a delight to soak in after a day spent on one of the many golf courses that are only minutes from the house.
There are TV/VCRs in both bedrooms, and a 42" stereo plasma television lights up the living room with home theater surround sound thrown in just for fun.
We have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each separated from the other by a very spacious covered courtyard. The home is built in the Mexican "Alamo" style, so that the house is shaped like a upside down "U". When you enter the front door, you enter the courtyard, and then walk across it to the main entrance to the house. Each of the bedrooms open onto the courtyard, so that they both receive abundant ambient light from the courtyard.
The kitchen is complete with all the requisite appliances, right down to a rice cooker and an electric orange juicer. I have also made sure that there is none other than a George Forman Bar-B-Que waiting on the patio for you to cook those steaks and shrimp on.
Being located directly in Palm Canyon only a minute from Palm Canyon Drive, it is just 4-5 minutes to the center of town and all the activities that are located there, including all the best galleries, restaurants, and shopping in all of the desert area.
The rental rate for Casa Palma is $200 per day during high season, and $150 a day during low season. Monthly rates can be negotiated with pleasure.
