Steve's place is spacious and nicely decorated. It also features a sonos sound system and we had a lot of fun streaming songs. Patio has a nice view of Mt. San Jacinto. Check-in is easy and checkout is also without headache. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended for people visiting Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park. (It's one hour drive to Joshua Tree National Park and 20 minutes drive to Mt San Jacinto aerial tramway.)

Steve's house is huge and a great spot for groups or large families looking to experience Joshua Tree National Park. We were a large group and so the spacious house and large well equipped kitchen were a huge plus. We dined outside nearly every evening and morning and enjoyed the view and and lawn area. The grill, sonos system, and outdoor shower were nice to have as well. Thanks for everything Steve!

I was in need of a house without a pool because we had 3 toddlers between 2 families. It's extremely hard to find that anywhere in palm springs. This house was amazing and extremely spacious! The kids played in the backyard the entire time. Steve was an excellent host and was on top of his communication with me. I've never stayed at such a well stocked rental home either. It had everything!! Great for entertaining large groups. I liked that there wasn't a tv in the main dining area because it forced us to talk to each other. There are dimmers on every light switch in the home to set the perfect mood and everything is glass so even when you are inside, you feel like you are outside. The weather was phenomenal. This house is the nicest by far in the neighborhood. Questionable neighbor across the street starring at us upon arrival. Other than that, it was nice being secluded on a hill. The views are spectacular any time of day. Highly recommend taking a walk at sunset. Bring the camera!
