The living room with glass ‘fire and ice’ fireplace, 55" flatscreen tv with surround sound, and ample seating has full view and access to the pool yard as well as the covered outdoor kitchen, bar, and outdoor living room. The tasteful yet bold design choices with lively colors make this home stand out from the crowd and will surely make a beautiful background for your Palm Springs vacation photos.

The 14' wide x 22' foot long 5' deep pool has a 6' x 6' spa with 4 jets that sits above and cascades into the pool.

The master bedroom has a king bed, flatscreen 40" smart tv, and an en suite bathroom with glass surround "marble" tile shower and solid surface vanity with under mount sink. The master closet is built-in from end to end floor to ceiling.

The guest bedroom has a king bed and a 55" flatscreen smart tv, and a small desk with a desk chair for those work emails or amazon shopping sprees. The guest bedroom closet is built-in from end to end floor to ceiling.

The hall guest bath has a glass surround tile shower and solid surface vanity with under mount sink.

The kitchen with all new cabinets and dishware is the perfect place to whip up your gourmet specialties or shake up your craft cocktails and serve them from the bar out to the dining room.

    a guest from Edmonton, AB recommends this vacation rental

    The homes decor and design were great for my husband and I and our daughter and boyfriend. Super comfy beds . We wish there had been a few cleaning supplies , like a broom and dustpan and a few items in the kitchen ( salad tongs ) We had golf clubs and it was a bit cramped in the bedroom because the storage is limited since the garage is locked. These are small items and we really loved desert gem ! Planes fly right over the house but we didn’t mind .

    The service we received from all Altamira's staff, and the property itself, exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend anyone to stay here.

    The property is beautifully maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. The location is peaceful and in easy reach (10 min drive) of downtown Palm Springs.

    Brett B from Edmonton, AB recommends this vacation rental

    We had an excellent stay at Desert Gem and would come back in a heartbeat. Clean and modern, and the perfect size for one family, or two couples, with everything you'll need to enjoy your time in Palm Springs.

    Pros:
    Altamira (property mgmt co) was friendly and responsive throughout the whole process, and even helped us out by arranging for a pack-n-play for our daughter to sleep in. Kitchen was stocked with many essentials, and washer/dryer in the kitchen was so handy. Bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. Bathrooms were modern, bright, and stocked with shampoo, soap, etc. Multimedia options (TV, blu-ray, Netflix, bluetooth stereo, surround sound) were great for lounging around the house in the evening. Power/USB outlets everywhere you'd need them. Location-wise, it's a 5 minute drive to the airport or downtown, 2 minutes from grocery stores/pharmacy/gas station, so it was perfect. Pool area was great, with an outdoor fridge to store beverages for easy access. We didn't use the outdoor fireplace but wish we had! Covered patio was a huge bonus for getting out of the hot sun every so often. Easy controls for the pool lights and heater via a remote.

    Cons (minor):
    As someone previously mentioned, this property is directly under the flight path from the airport, so most planes taking off fly directly overhead, which is a bit loud for 15 seconds or so each time. We actually didn't find this bothered us, but took a bit of getting used to. Our 2-year-old loved looking at the planes though, and it didn't affect our sleep or enjoyment inside the house. We did find one set of sheets was a bit scratchy, so we just changed them out for a spare set in the closet. A/C could have been a bit cooler (there were instructions not to adjust the thermostat), and getting hot water in the shower sometimes took a couple minutes, but these are all minor and wouldn't affect our decision to come back.

    Thanks, Altamira! Can't wait to come back!

    Such a cute, luxurious house. My boyfriend and I love going to Palm Springs every chance we get. This was our second time staying in one of Altamira homes and they are just so fabulous. The home has everything you need! It makes it so easy to make yourself right at home. Beds are comfy, pool is great, house is in a great location. Will definitely be staying in this Gem again SOON!!

    a guest from Los Angeles, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This was one of the most beautiful and well appointed vacation homes we have stayed in. Everything was clean and no need to run out and buy the basics they were there for us if we needed them. The beds are extremely comfortable, rest and the pool were so welcoming after a long day at Coachella! Unfortunately we would not select this home as an option in the future due to the extreme noise ordinance rules. I have rented plenty of homes in Palm Springs and this was the first one to have so many threats if you too loud or played music....."absolutely NO music outside EVER" or if you break the rule and even have music on your phone you will be evicted and there will be a $1000 fine. Whew made us nervous to have music in the house. It would have been nice to sit by the pool and enjoy a little music. If you are NOT into relaxing by the pool/spa with music you must stay here is is almost perfect! I personally love a drink in my hand feet in the pool and Frank singing to me in the background but at Desert Gem you have to forget the Frank part.

    The home was beautiful. Leasing party was very professional and responsive. Great backyard. I'd give it a 10 if it weren't so deep into Palm Springs
