Louise was kind and gracious. I suggest booking another room than the zen room so the bathroom/noise isn't right beside you.

Response from Louise:
Thank you Dianna. I am sorry you found the sounds of the other guest using the shared bathroom annoying. Perhaps you ought to consider the fact this is our home and not a hotel, it's like sharing it with family. Kind regards.

A relaxing experience! Exactly as described. Having hosts provide coffee and toast in the morning is a nice touch; I appreciated it. The bed was super comfortable! It was a nice place for an adult getaway. We went out to enjoy nightlife and the Zen room was most definitely our retreat. We went out to eat, lots of nearby places. Enjoyed using the pool! The welcome guide in the nightstand with directions and tips was helpful!

Bill & Louise, thank you so much for opening your home to us. The Zen room was aptly named and we had two great sleeps in the comfy bed & great bedding. The artwork was beautiful throughout your home, Bill for your photography & Louise for your paintings. Your backyard was an oasis, we only wish that we could have spent more time there. We have a daughter in Los Angeles, so we know we will be back in Palm Springs. We will definitely be back. Tom & Linda

My husband Bill and I love to travel, and enjoy hosting fellow travelers in our home.
Being a host on airbnb has brought the world to us and we have made some good friends. Being a guest ourselves has given us the unique experience of staying in someone's home too and feeling like more of a local.

Bill is an art director/filmmaker and photographer and makes great pizza. I (Louise) love books, boots, laying on the grass cloud-watching, cooking, entertaining and shopping at the local organic farmer's market. I love to paint and create and am currently writing a cookbook memoir.

I am from Dublin, Ireland and moved to California to the sun many moons ago. Bill is from Chicago and moved to California in the 70's. We moved from LA to Palm Springs for a quieter lifestyle and the desert's stunning, raw beauty. We feel connected to nature and the rhythm of life here. Rising with the sun and gazing at the moon at night.

We like to cycle into town for coffee, hanging with friends, taking road trips, swimming in the pool, movies, theater and all that Palm Springs has to offer. We love the desert, winter and summer, for each season's particular flavor and like the fact we live so close to Joshua tree for camping and star watching. Its a wonderland here in Spring with all the wild flowers popping up out of the parched earth.
