Perfect amenities, location and just gorgeous!

Just got back from a week in Palm Springs. “Shaken Not Stirred” was not only beautifully decorated, but absolutely comfortable as well. From the comfortable furniture (yes, modern CAN be comfy!) to the exquisite bed linens to the color coordinated orange pool towels, this house was perfect in every way. One of the best things about the house is how private it is. We felt like there wasn’t anyone around for miles. The owner and ambassador for the house were both extremely accommodating and responsive – thank you. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a resort-like setting and would definitely book again for future stays.

Guys Trip

Some friends and I travel to Palm Springs every year for a weekend getaway, and in past years we had always rented a home in the Movie Colony. Our group got smaller this year, and we decided to look for a new place to stay. Shaken Not Stirred ended up being a great decision. The house has been completely redone, and has been done with a perfect balance of great design and comfort, as well as functionality. David and Tricia have thought of everything you need when you are relaxing the way you should in Palm Springs. We spent the majority of our time just lounghing outside by the pool, and it was perfect. In addition to the house, the neighborhood is great as well as close to downtown. I’ve already recommended the house to several friends, as I really think it is a perfect place for a great, and affordable, getaway. The fact that Steve McQueen used to live nearby made it that much cooler. We’ll be back soon.

Shhhh! Let’s keep it a secret! Lol!

This home is awesome!!! I almost regret saying that because it’s going to end up booked all the time and we won’t be able to get a reservation. We stayed here with 2 other couples and in the end no one wanted to leave (including our dogs). The home decor is modern, clean and sexy! The pool and backyard…..even sexier! Also, dealing with the owners made booking our stay very personable. They were truly a pleasure to deal with! I highly recommend this home to anyone how’s looking for a getaway!

Cant wait to go back!

When we first walked in to the home, our eyes light up! “WOW”!! Everything was wonderful, from the modern decor of the home, backyard/pool, lounge/seating area in the pool, bbq, 2 fire pits, covered eating area outside, outdoor shower, cable in all the rooms, bathrobes & beach towels, I could go on…. oh let’s not forget the cool lights that change color in the pool at nighttime!!!! It was just an overall relaxing ambiance. We were so disappointed when it was our last day as we didn’t want to leave. This home is great for any anyone as it is accommodating to all ages. We’ve stayed at several homes in Palm Springs prior to this and this home has been the best. No complaints whatsoever. While vacationing we already looked up to see when the next available date would be that we could come back. I would definitely recommend this house. I also wanted to thank the home owners/staff who made the booking process, check in and check out so easy. THANKS AGAIN!! We miss you already Palm Springs!

The Perfect Getaway!

Our girls group came for a weekend retreat. We felt like we were staying at a high-end spa. The house is well suited for a group. Lots of space, beautifully decorated, and high-end touches throughout. But the real gem is the backyard with the mountain view. Very spacious with a lounge chair for each person. We can’t wait to return next year!

A definite getaway to die for

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few days. I will have to admit this vacation rental is to die for! The decor throughout the house is amazing! The backyard is most defiantly to die for! The house is cozy and comfortable. It was our favorite part of the house! During our stay at the house we used the pool and tanning ledge. It was like having our own little oasis! On our last day we were both sad to leave this amazing place!

We are from Northridge/Burbank. We came here to escape and enjoy and relax a little. We certainly are enjoying our time here and we are loving the modern/clean house. We also love the heated pool.

As the inaugural renters of your wonderful new home, we thank you for a great stay and congratulate you on a job well-done with the immaculate remodel and outfitting of the house. We had a great time!
