About Wayne Duncan
My family has owned this house since 1967! As a kid, there was such a freedom and sense of perpetual vacation every time we would come to Palm Springs. My brother and I always brought friends and we spent all day in the pool. It's amazing how the house and the experiences are still the same for my kids! It's really a special place with an incredible vibe. That's why we never sold the house and keep coming back.
Wayne Duncan purchased this House in 1967

Delightful property! Well appointed, plenty of space, lovely landscaping and pool. Very well equipped from kitchen to bedding to amenities. Can't wait to return.
The home was as lovely as the pictures. The pool was wonderful and the view was superb. Wayne was very responsive to any small issues that arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our monthly stay.
Mid Century At Its Best
This is a special house that we so enjoyed. The neighbourhood is very quiet but close to amenities i.e. restaurants, grocery store, lovely close neighbourhoods to explore. The house is full of light in every room that lifts your spirits even on cloudy days. It is so well stocked: everything from dishes, sheets, towels, patio furniture, appliances, wine fridge, is high end. A big plus for us is the big pool - can actually do laps. At first, viewing the pictures, we wondered about so much “turquoise” but found the decorating to be well done - a soft, quieting decor but without losing the mid century feel. We enjoyed the updated renovations as they added comfort but didn’t take away from the mid century uniqueness. Perhaps the best part of our stay was working directly with the owners, Wayne and Debbie. We had a few problems during the flood as did a lot of houses in Palm Springs. Workmen were there almost immediately and followup was attentive. Although no fault of their own, the owners were very concerned about our disruption. Great people to work with.
Thanks you for the use of your lovely home.
Wonderful and comfortable stay!
Very, very clean! Spacious & nicely designed home.Very well equipped in all aspects-kitchen pots & pans, dishes, and lots of bath and beach towels! The backyard was so comfortable we didn't want to leave the house-wonderful pool, patio, and natural gas fire table! This home is only a few blocks away from grocery stores and the bus line; 20 minute walk to Koffi; and only 40 minute walk downtown. The owner was always very quick to respond to any questions.
We would highly recommend anyone to stay here!
Beautiful Palm Springs Getaway!
My friends and I wanted a relaxing weekend getaway in Palm Springs from our busy, professional LA lives. We stumbled upon the Duncan residence on HomeAway and were immediately charmed by it's 60s appeal, its pool, location, and size (3 sizable bedrooms). Wayne was super easy to work with and an excellent host - and the house was beautiful and clean. The neighborhood was quiet but the houses are well-spaced so we felt we had privacy. We spent the weekend swimming, cooking, and listening to music. We could not have been more happy with our trip, would highly recommend this house, thank you Wayne!
Very Private, Great Location
This truly is a one-of-a-kind Mid Century Home with an excellent location in south Palm Springs. It has a very private outdoor pool area, providing a great spot to relax and dine. The grapefruit trees were an added bonus providing fresh grapefruit every morning.
The home is extremely well equipped with games, books and a kitchen where you will find anything you need for meal preparation. There are 2 master bedrooms at opposite ends of the house making it ideal to share with your guests.
The home was very clean when we arrived, in fact we hired the house keeper to clean for us a few times during our 6 week stay. We found Wayne easy to deal with and very accommodating .
We would highly recommend a stay.
