As seen in the New York Post and The Daily Mail! We invite you to experience Palm Springs like never before in this unique 1937 Spanish home.

The Penguin Cottage is steps away from the heart of Palm Springs. Enter the turquoise front gate and fall into a completely private, colorful dream world. The stone courtyard is perfect for all of your vacation needs.

The space
Cool off in the gorgeous blue tiled pool, enjoy a cocktail under the thatched palm leaves of the palapa, grill dinners outside with the propane BBQ, lounge with a book in the fabulous yellow cabana chairs while enjoying dramatic views of Mt. San Jacinto. We even provide yoga mats if you’re in the mood for some poolside downward dog!

Speaking of dogs, we allow small dogs as long as you let us know ahead of time and pay the $50 pet fee for the extra cleaning. Please pick up after your dog so we can continue to allow this!

Inside, the home is equally unique. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a comfortable living area with vaulted and beamed ceilings. Each room is painted to match the originality and imagination of the rest of the house. The previous owners designed the rooms based on international works of art, many of which still hang in the home. Our personal favorite room in the house is the dining room which features multi-colored hardwood floors and walls, a stained glass window based on a painting that hangs in the room, and gorgeous French doors that open onto the pool. Too hot? Cool down with our misters placed all along the front porch in front of the pool. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and a wide variety of cooking supplies.

The Penguin Cottage is truly one of a kind!

Guest access
Palm Springs’ best bars and restaurants are an easy walk and very short drive. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can use the house’s yellow bicycle-built-for-two! Head on over to Melvyn’s for martinis, The Tonga Hut for a pupu platter, or The Ace to eat and drink with the hip kids, then return to your very own private, heavenly cottage. We’d love to have you.

As per city of Palm Springs regulations, guests will need to sign a "Good Neighbor" contract. Also they require us to collect a copy of a photo ID of the person booking the house. The city is very strict on noise so please NO outdoor speakers. A noise violation is considered any noise that can be heard from the street and a ticket will cost $500 and we could lose our ability to rent this great house!
