What would Gable and Lombard have wanted in their 1940's desert hideaway? Desert Palms has been whimsically inspired as the secluded escape of a Hollywood couple. Replete with vintage glamor, an entertainer's dream kitchen is connected to the living room with a long bar. Sun-filled rooms open the vistas to magnificent views. Privacy fencing surrounds the property and protects the large sparkling pool.

*December Holidays Only Accepting Direct Bookings Rates Are Not The Same As Our Regular Rates*

I spent my 40th birthday here. Pool was great fun, albeit chilly - but then it was April. The house is lovely, great decor and really cool. It's easy to get to and has beautiful views. If you're looking for peace in a retro cool property, this is for you.
