Colin's Palm Springs Getaway Vacation Rental Condo

Guest Reviews

Favorite Place To Stay

I have stayed here before and I had a great experience so I came back. It’s my favorite place to stay. Everything is clean, quiet and Colin is a wonderful host. I highly recommend and hope to be back in the future!

Home Away From Home

Colin’s place is truly a home away from home. He has thought about every detail, and there are instructions / hints everywhere about how all the wonderful things to see and do. You won’t be disappointed! Location is equidistant to pretty much everything in the valley.

One of the Best

I highly recommend Colin’s condo and will definitely stay there again. The listing is 100% spot but I don’t think it does justice to the perfect setup of the kitchen and the amazing, large balcony/porch off the living room–the perfect place to hang out for breakfast or a late evening cocktail. Sure, Colin’s place isn’t downtown, but it IS close to all the essentials: Target, Trader Joes, and Vons as well as nice quiet streets for a walk or run. Colin is also the most perfectly attentive superhost without being overly communicative in a bad way. One of the best Airbnb stays I’ve had.

This immaculately clean and well appointed condo was so amazing. Colin was communicative and responsive, he literally thought of everything you might possibly need and stocked the condo accordingly. We enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back. Thank you, Colin!!

Wonderful Stay

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. I absolutely loved staying at the condo and hope we may again one day. You thought of every detail and everything a traveler might need. We have traveled the world and have never stayed at a better Airbnb!

Super Positive Experience

Colin deserves the title SUPER host. His place was awesome in every regard: close covered parking, a pool literally less than 100 feet away, great central location, lovely décor and super accommodating host let me check in several hours before and tacked on an hour for check out. His unit deserves 10 stars though there’s only 5. Very fast response time and overall super positive experience. Can’t go wrong at Casa Colin.

This condo is fantastic – really spacious, tons of amenities, quiet area, nice pool and very easy to get into downtown Palm Springs. Colin is a great host and we felt very welcome and comfortable during our stay.

Had A Great Time

Had a great time at Colin’s condo. This place is even better than the pictures. Kitchen was very well stocked, has everything you need including spices, coffee and a snack basket. Beds are very comfortable. Washer and dryer were a bonus. He even has floaties for the pool. We will definitely stay here again.

Easy To Get Comfy In

Colin’s home is a gem and we feel lucky to have found it. The condo felt very clean and easy to get comfy in. We enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi daily and even watched some of the DVDs in the collection. We worked from the condo a bit as well, I enjoyed sitting on the porch while my husband used the desk in the master bedroom. We hope to come again next time we are in the area. Thank you, Colin!

One of the Best

The AMAZING reviews I read about Colin and his Palm Springs getaway were spot on! This is one of the best Airbnb experiences I’ve ever had. Colin always responded so quickly and went above and beyond in offering good customer service. Plus, he has a great sense of humor! The place is fabulous and truly has EVERYTHING thing you can think of for a comfortable home away from home relaxing getaway. The location was very convenient. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to return soon!

Worked Perfectly

Colin’s place was extremely comfortable and worked perfectly with my schedule of working from home and having a little staycation in Palm Springs (location is great, within short driving distance of downtown and different hiking trails). The place is sparkling clean and well-stocked to the point where if I was looking for something, it’d seem to manifest. Cannot recommend enough!

Cozy and Clean

Colin was amazing from the beginning till the very end. He was so accommodating and kind. He pointed out places to go and things to do that I wondered about. The accommodations were so cozy and clean, super quiet and restful. The swimming pool and spa were sparkling clean. You will be very happy with him as your host as I was

One of the Best

Colin’s place was as described and perfect for our needs. Great location, incredibly easy check in and out process and lots of amenities. He’s one of the best hosts we’ve stayed with. We’ll definitely stay here again the next time we’re in Palm Springs.

A Dream Come True!

Colin’s place is a DREAM come true! Seriously, the photos do not do it justice. It’s so beautiful there. We had everything we needed. Felt very safe and looked forward to coming back while out exploring Palm Springs. Location was ideal. Condo and grounds were flawless. Colin made sure the entire process was smooth for us from beginning to end. It made the trip all the more worthwhile.

Pure Delight

Colin’s place is a pure delight. Every imaginable amenity, charming space, great location, adorable host. We had the pleasure of meeting Colin for drinks by the pool, now that vaccinations are happening. He and his partner had lots of great restaurant tips and Colin’s web site is invaluable for activities recommendations. Bonus bunnies poolside!

Recommended Without Hesitation

Colin’s place was great! It had everything we needed, was clean, and he was available and responsive via text throughout our stay. I would recommend a stay at Colin’s condo without hesitation.

If you’re looking for a great place to stay, an outstanding host and a great price, then this is the place you’re looking for. Everything about this experience was exceptional–from the hospitality to the attention to small details. You won’t find a better place to rest and renew. And the price–outstanding. I’m looking forward to returning to Colin’s Palm Springs Getaway!

Would 100% stay again

Colin is an amazing host. Very service oriented and truly wants you to have a great time while at his spot. Would 100% stay again anytime we are back in Palm Springs.

Well stocked kitchen, attention to detail by owner

Everything about this property shouted TLC: From a well stocked kitchen (sharp, decent knives), good lighting (I am an artist), immaculately clean condo, well thought out furnishings, and a very thoughtful property owner. The condo is near bike routes, and we cycled all over Palm Springs from this location.

This Is The Place

Colin’s place is a gem. If you want to chill in Palm Springs this is the place. The condo is exactly as described and then some. Colin was super responsive and helpful. The condo is spectacular with every amenity you can think of, including a full kitchen set up, books and movies, pool toys, and tennis rackets. Colin has anticipated all of the things you might want during a P.S. getaway.

We Had A Wonderful Time

Colin’s place was very clean and well furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we cook a lot! The grounds were well taken care of and the pools were sparkling.

Even Better Than Expected

Colin’s place was even better than we expected. The place is sparkling clean and has all the amenities you need and would find in your own home. The apartment is very spacious and well located. We also enjoyed the pool and tennis court. This is one of the best Airbnb we have stayed at!

I Came To Work And Just Get Away For A Bit

“I really enjoyed staying here, the space is as pictured and very comfortable. I also enjoyed walking to target Trader Joe’s or Vons as they are particularly close. I came to work and just get away for a bit and this was a great place for that.”

A Wonderful Experience

When we arrived Colin was there to greet us, made sure we had everything and knew where things were and had some cheese and fruit ready for us. The condo was perfect. For those for whom this is important, the kitchen had everything you would ever need, and I am a dedicated cook! The pool was great, surrounded by orange and lemon trees. The outings to Palm Springs were great. In all, a wonderful experience.

Like An Oasis

Staying here is like an oasis, peaceful environment, welcoming and cozy, very comfortable beds, all the basics are covered for you! Perfect for relaxing and super close to amenities outside, like pools and walking paths, the grounds are beautiful! Even the stores are close enough to walk. You won’t be disappointed!

Annual Visitors

From top to bottom our experience with Colin and his condo was simply the best. We’re annual visitors to PS and have stayed at some pretty nice places. Colin’s getaway is tops.

So Much Nicer To Stay In A Home

Colin is a superb host, and has filled his condo with everything you could need for a hot getaway. We were extremely fortunate to have booked here rather than a tiny hotel room. It is so much nicer to stay in a home rather than a box. We visited at the end of August, knowing it would be too hot to be out all day. We were busy each morning since that is the best time to be outside then returned for lunch and a cool rest. The pools were warm, but offered a bit of cooling in the afternoon. The condo is super easy to get into, no gates or checkin. There were other condos under renovation, but we never heard a thing. This is a quiet, calm break in the busy valley. We look forward to a return visit.

Everything You Need

The property is lovely. The kitchen is well equipped. The complex is quiet and well located. Colin is wonderful and very responsive to questions. You will find everything you need to enjoy your stay is included. Colin put together a list of restaurants that were wonderful! The pool is terrific and spotless. My daughter loved the rafts at the pool. Check in was a breeze. Colin stopped in right after we got in. He went through the condo’s amenities and everything was perfect. The unit is well maintained and everything worked like it should. My wife, daughter and I loved every minute of our stay. We will be back! Thank you Colin for your hospitality.

Wonderful Place To Stay

The condo is just as described! Beautiful and well equipped. Great location. Not far from downtown. The pool was fantastic and we had it to ourselves every day! It was a wonderful place to stay in Palm Springs!

Comfortable, Perfect Place To Stay

This place is the perfect place to stay. It has everything you need to have a great stay. We ate in some nights and prepared food in the fully equipped kitchen. The rooms are spacious and well equipped but apart from anything else, comfortable. Air-conditioning is a bonus but we didn’t really need it while we stayed. The pool is amazing and we spent most mornings out sunbathing. We was lucky enough to meet Colin on check in. He was so nice, we could have spoken for hours. I would highly recommend this place for short or long stays. Thanks Colin

Amazing Place To Stay

Highly recommend this gem of a place. The location is perfectly situated to go for a hike in the morning, grab groceries and then relax poolside. Colin is a wonderful host and has thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. We can’t wait to book a return visit.

Lovely Time

We had a lovely time in this beautiful condo. The rooms were big and spacious (especially the master bedroom) with a big living room and kitchen and we loved the welcoming gifts. Communication with Colin was smooth and easy. I definitely would love to come back again.

Complete Desert Oasis!

This place is simply amazing! It is spacious, clean, and decorated beautifully. We felt right at home on our first day, and were so sad to leave on our last day! The master bedroom is a dream, very spacious with a comfortable king size bed, office area, and double sink vanity. You’ll have more than enough closet space! The second bedroom is also the perfect size. And, the second bathroom has a bathtub if you’re into bubble baths. I know this was a plus for me! You’ll enjoy relaxing in the living room with its comfy sofa, and cooking in the modern, fully equipped kitchen! Bring your own coffee beans because there is a coffee grinder & French press which is the perfect touch for the avid coffee drinker. There is also a regular coffee pot available, and my personal favorite was an assortment of teas. The unit also has a balcony with a table for four, which is perfect for reading a book or enjoying your meals there. Also, you need not to worry about lugging laundry to outside as there is a washer & dryer in the unit with detergent/fabric softner/dryer sheets. And last but not least, there are multiple pools on the property, and they are very close to the unit. But you don’t have to worry about any loud or noisy people at all. The area is very peaceful & quiet! I highly reccomend this place, and we will be returning again. Colin was an amazing host, and when I had any questions, he responded quickly, and was always so helpful! I didn’t want to tell you all what a fabulous place it is here, because I’d prefer it was my secret!!! But, since the secret is out, I have three words: Complete Desert Oasis! Enjoy!

Everything You Need

Everything you need. Almost like being at home.

Was a little hot!! Loved the pool and tennis court! Everything you need was there. Liked watching the hummingbirds. Host answered all questions I had and communicated with me throughout the stay.

Best VRBO in Palm Springs!

When I rent a condo/house, we want the extra space and amenities a hotel room can’t offer. Colin’s place is exactly that. Nice, clean space where four of us had ample space to relax and sleep. It was actually cleaner than a hotel! Kitchen is equipped with everything you ever need, as if you were at home. With it being right next to a tennis court, it also had tennis rackets and balls for the guests to use. How thoughtful! I can’t say enough how wonderful and joy it was to be able to rent this gem while our stay in Palm Springs. We had it for a week, and while we were there we made a trip to L.A., and two trips to Joshua Tree National Park.

Wonderful Time

We had a wonderful time at Colin’s place. The condo was super clean and well located with a swimming pool to share. We only met 1 person at the pool during our stay so that was pretty quiet and enjoyable. The bed was really comfy and we slept very well. We had the privilege to meet Colin: He was very welcoming and gave us some recommendations for where to eat. We appreciated the bakeries he left for us in the fridge and cool bottles of water too! It was so hot when we arrived that we were happy to find them. We highly recommend this place.

Everything We Needed

Colin’s condo was perfect for the three of us. The location was close to everything and the pool was awesome! We had everything we needed and even some extras !! Would definitely recommend this condo! It was so nice to meet the owner Colin he gave us lots of good tips since this was our first trip to California!

Met Our Standards In Spades

Met our standards in spades: safe, clean, comfortable, functional, convenient, and an excellent host.

One of the best appointed home away properties we have used. Everything was there and was spotless. Colin was a great host and provided detailed information about the area. We fully intend to return.

What’s Not To Love?

I’m a fairly seasoned vacation renter and Colin’s condo in Palm Springs hit the spot. Well appointed, comfortable beds, SUPER CLEAN, new appliances and stylish decor to boot. The location is great, quiet building, easy to access, check in was a breeze, nice swimming pools and tennis courts and Colin was easy to work with. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer! Will stay again.

Really Enjoyed It

Colin’s place includes numerous thoughtful furnishings throughout. It’s clean and tidy, well located and the pool was great! We really enjoyed our trip and it was always a pleasure to open the door when returning from a day of adventures. Colin was very helpful, knowledgeable and great for answering general palm Springs questions for our family’s first trip to the area. He wasn’t intrusive but available when needed.

Beautiful, Clean and Well Equipped

It was a pleasure to stay in this property. It had a partial view of the pool which was also wonderful and we had to ourselves most of the time. Colin was very pleasant to deal with and left us a welcome pack which was very thoughtful. We will definately use this property next time we visit Palm Springs.

Great Stay

We spent a week in Colin’s Getaway and had a fabulous time. The condo was well equipped with comfortable beds and plenty of household equipment. The pool was lovely and we could check out the activity from the balcony. Colin provided every bit of information that we could have asked for. Loved the location – we felt we were central to every area we wanted to explore. 5 stars for the condo and 10 stars for the host!

Beautiful, Immaculate, Perfect!

My mom and I just spent a week at Colin’s condo in Palm Springs and it could not have been better! Colin was super-responsive, and the communication prior to our arrival was excellent. The condo is just as lovely as the pictures and was immaculate! Everything was well-stocked (he’s thought of everything you’d need for a comfortable stay). Palm Canyon Villas is a friendly, quiet, relaxing community, and the condo is very conveniently located within Palm Springs. We especially loved the terrace off the living room. It feels private, and while it’s bright and light, it does not get direct sunlight so you can sit out there at any time of the day and not feel like you need to wear SPF 50. Overall we could not have asked for a better place to stay and consider ourselves thoroughly spoiled. Worth every dime and we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Very Clean and Well Equipped

Just stayed here for five days with my daughter. The condo is very comfortable and we totally enjoyed it. It’s close to the pool and very quiet. It’s so clean and has anything you might need in the kitchen. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a plus. Colin is a great landlord and we had a nice visit with him. He had great suggestions for restaurants. The only problem was my failure to carefully read the instructions for getting the key for the condo (senior moment LOL) and Colin was quick to help us. I would definitely stay here again.

A Beautiful And Well-Equipped Condo

Our family of four spent a very relaxing week in Colin’s condo in mid-October. Everything was just as described and pictured, actually even better. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms and kitchen very well stocked and the balcony was my favorite place for morning coffee. Overall the condo was very clean, well-maintained an thoughtfully decorated. Wi-fi was great. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub, played tennis (with Colin’s equipment) and made short day trips around Palm Springs. Tramway is an absolute must-see, Joshua Tree National Park is awesome and something very unique for us (compared to northern Europe). Colin’s instructions were very thorough and he also gave many good tips and suggestions about restaurants etc. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe, there are several grocery stores nearby and it was very easy to drive around in this area, especially compared to LA where we spent the first part of our trip. Colin took good care of us throughout our visit and returned the deposit promptly. For our family this was our best HomeAway experience so far!

Thanks, Colin!

Our stay in the condo for our honeymoon was perfect in every way. The community is cozy and quiet and we loved getting to play tennis, go swimming, and being close to Trader Joe’s for quick food runs. The condo itself is perfectly represented in the pictures so it was very cool walking in and feeling like we had already been there. The furnishings, design, and feel of the condo is so clean and relaxing, and it fit our style perfectly. Colin had so much helpful and clear communication it really made our stay so much smoother and effortless. For the price, this place is an amazing value and my wife and I have already decided that if we come back to Palm Springs again we will try our hardest to stay here again.

Palm Springs Perfection

I can’t think of enough superlatives to describe our stay at Colin’s condo. The location was perfect for Palm Springs first-timers, as the airport is less than 10 minutes away; Von’s, Target, and Trader Joe’s are all close by, and it’s a short drive to downtown. The condo itself is exactly as pictured; everything is in mint condition and so clean! I have never stayed in a place that was as well-equipped – Colin has thought of everything! Blender, French press, martini glasses, tennis rackets, beach chairs, first aid kit – you name it, it’s here.The saltwater pools are fantastic and again, very clean. If there is a downside, it is the traffic noise one hears in the smaller bedroom, but here again, Colin has anticipated the problem and provided a white noise machine to mitigate the sound of the highway. This is truly a 5-star property, and we cannot wait to go back!

Lovely Modern Decor And Plenty Of Space

We were 4 adult first timers to Palm Springs staying in the property and there was plenty of room for everyone to relax. The complex is quite old but this apartment has been renovated to a high standard and has everything that you could possibly need. The kitchen is very well equipped and lovely and clean and bright. The master bedroom is simply huge as is the ensuite bathroom. From a female point of view I absolutely loved this bathroom with its attached wardrobes which made it like a dressing room. The other bathroom is a decent size as is the second bedroom. There are a large amount of good bath and pool towels which is very handy, also outdoor lounges for the pool. The pool was lovely and clean and the surrounding pool area was very well kept as were all the grounds and we enjoyed swimming daily. The tennis courts are very close to the apartment and also looked in very good condition. There is a strip of shops with a Vons supermarket a short 5 minute walk away and we found this most useful for supplies for our breakfast etc and for picking up coffees. There is a golf course directly across the road and it was a short uber ride to the Palm Springs strip with all the restaurants etc.The owner Colin is incredibly friendly and helpful and goes out of his way to make sure everything is satisfactory. I would go back to this property in a heartbeat and we felt very at home there.
