Palm Springs TOT permit #2973 Located in the sought after Tahquitz River Estates neighborhood just 1 mile south of downtown Palm Springs, near the ACE and Parker hotels. Unlike the north end that experiences frequent high winds, the south end of town is much more tame. In 1947, when the banks of the Tahquitz Wash were stabilized, a famous Mid-Century builder from Los Angeles, Paul Trousdale, developed homes on either side of the banks, and called them 'Tahquitz River Estates'. This home has been recently refurbished to provide an elevated experience for the discerning traveler. The property is perfect for the traveling professional, couples that seek a more spacious and well planned layout, 2 couples, or small families (with children over the age of 12 years) that wish to have space to ...Palm Springs TOT permit #2973 Located in the sought after Tahquitz River Estates neighborhood just 1 mile south of downtown Palm Springs, near the ACE and Parker hotels.

This home has been recently refurbished to provide an elevated experience for the discerning traveler. The property is perfect for the traveling professional, couples that seek a more spacious and well planned layout, 2 couples, or small families (with children over the age of 12 years) that wish to have space to spread out and enjoy each other while having the privacy of separate sleeping quarters and bathrooms. This Architect owned and refurbished home has been thoughtfully updated with the modern amenities you'd expect while preserving it's mid century modern heritage at every turn. You'll be greeted at the front door with original stone floors and enter into a re-envisioned open floor plan. Designed to make the best use of natural light from abundant windows and minimally furnished to provide a wide open, uncluttered living space. The south facing patio doors look out upon, and open up to an inviting, brand new pool and spa. You'll enjoy a private and luxurious back yard with a powerful bbq grill and outdoor dining and sun lounging area. Plenty of shade is available as well on one of the numerous covered outdoor areas. There is even a swath of green grass between the pool and the patio that will feel great on your feet! The home is stocked with high quality linens and towels and baths and the kitchen are stocked with soaps, shampoos and paper supplies for your stay. There is new laundry in the garage; which is available to our guests for parking as well. The smart TV in the living room is Internet/cable connected. The home has wifi Internet throughout. There is a multi room Sonos bluetooth speaker system that is ready for you to hook up to. The entire house is thoughtfully stocked with everything we can think of to make your stay as relaxing and stress free as possible. At El Fenix, you will be greeted at the front door by your local host that will provide you with a tour of the home and will familiarize you with the property. Our goal at El Fenix and HOST Palm Springs is to provide our guests with the best possible vacation experience. In many vacation rental homes you'll find the garage to be 'off limits' and others that do not stock paper supplies or soaps. Not at El Fenix, we look for reasons to say yes, not to say no. Pool and Spa heat are optional. Most will not need pool heat in the warmer months (June - October), but if you elect to have a hot spa, the daily fee is $25. For the remaining months, pool and spa heat are available as a package for $50 per day or $250 per week. Pool heat must be turned on prior to arrival and is available for the entire stay only. TOT (Transient Occupancy Tax) of 11.5% is added to the total per Palm Springs ordinance. El Fenix is a 100% smoke free. No smoking is allowed on the property. 100% pet free. No pets are to be on the grounds or in the home. No children under the age of 12 years of age. The home is not a good fit for young children.

About the neighbourhood
Tahquitz River Estates is just one mile south of Downton Palm Springs. The neighborhood is populated with mid century 'Trousdale' built ranch homes on the banks of the Tahquitz River. The neighborhood is filled with mature landscaping and well kept homes. This southern location is much more calm in regard to winds than the northern part of Palm Springs. There are beautiful mountain views in most directions. Walking is very nice in this neighborhood with restaurants, grocery stores and even the events downtown just minutes away. This is an ideal location for your stay in the desert.
