What makes this Estate unique
Natural power places are good for us, healing for us. Many persons describe feeling "recharged" when they venture into unspoiled Nature. Such places are often commune directly with the divine. It is hard to describe what i have been feeling but it worked. A natural place is far more wonderful and beautiful and pure while Man can only attempt to mimic Nature, and a painting or magnificent work of architecture is only a poor reflection of the original wonder. Right away i realized one of the essential elements of the Peak Experience - a powerful awareness of timeless, perfect communion with the divine. Palm Springs is a Place of Power. This is not only bastion of ecological purity, essential to the wellbeing of Earth, but it is a place that bring us closer to the mystery and wonder of life and the sublime. Such places are fragile, often targets of human avarice, whether for their timber or the minerals beneath them. Sometimes they are turned into tourist traps. It is imperative to protect them, walk gently amid them, and in the doing grow ourselves. If we do, such places work a unique magic. They renew myth. They rebirth the fairytale. If we strive to live well with them and look after them, they turn us into modern witches and wizards. And if we neglect them, we run the risk of becoming the vile queen, the selfish axeman, the avaricious orc, or—worst of all—the mere mindless peasant, lacking insight and any real, meaningful self-will. Power places work a precious enchantment: they sing a subtle song, and if we listen, we may in them discover and become true to the wild myth within ourselves.

Igor was very friendly, responsive to our needs and helpful!
The outdoor area is fabulous, pool, hot tub and sauna. The location is gorgeous too, with a beautiful view of the mountains. The house is well furnished and comfortable. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the sofa pull out bed is extremely uncomfortable and slightly bent/broken (slants). It’s very comfortable for six, but the living room couch is not (and no privacy). Otherwise - awesome place!
Thank you for your review. Relating the sofa it appears to be a manufacture defect and it is subject to return and exchange. As of now it is fixed untill will be replaced by the seller. We have to take into consideration that it is always unpredictable when and how equipment fails. This is a newly purchased sofa to change the previous broken one by guests and unfortunately appear with manufacturers defect.
No matter what this is a five star location and thank you for being our guests and always welcome to our desert.
Owner was inappropriate
The place itself was fine, but the owner stopped by and made several inappropriate comments to me and my friends. We left early because we didn’t feel safe.
You honestly surprised me a lot. Especially about security. Of course, everything sounds ridiculous, but apparently you have a goal to harm. God is your judge. Such charges have no basis. It is very interesting why I offended you so much by conducting a simple instruction. Live and learn. In any case, there was probably a misunderstanding or personal dislike. I do not exclude that you just did not like me. Well, it happens. Successes, health to you and your family. Always welcome to our desert.
Catalina Ankor's Away!
The house was amazing and so much bigger than expected, the photos do not do it justice. The location is perfect for everything in Palm Springs and we can't wait to stay there again!
