About this listing

Private Room 2 guests 1 Bedroom 1 Bed

The space

This is NOT a resort!
Beautiful Spanish style single family detached home in southeast Palm Springs less than 5 minutes from our international airport, and 3.5 miles to downtown center, this bed and breakfast offers complete privacy in a clothing optional environment. The neighborhood is known as Los Compadres.
Guests may use common area rooms as they see fit, including a Baby Grand Piano! Amenities include pool, spa, a shared bathroom with the other guest room, having two wash basins, queen beds, (one room facing a fountain and opening to the back garden area), with a golf course but a short walk; wireless internet. I recently had my pool redone, and that is reflected in the new pictures I have just posted. The kitchen was updated in 2014 and that is also reflected in the new photos.
Smoketree Commons is nearby with shopping and restaurants, and public transit is a couple of blocks away. Previous guests have rented bikes to explore the area, and I have one for your use. Breakfast is usually continental with fruit, cereal, juice, croissants, coffee, and tea available. Except for use of the microwave, fridge, and toaster oven, there is NO cooking.
This is a wonderful area for walking, as well! You won't find more value for the money. Thanks!

Guest access

Guests have access to all the common areas including the pool and spa. However, only the spa is heated during the cooler season.

Interaction with guests

I prefer to be here when guests arrive for orientation and key transfer. However, I come and go just as the guests will be doing.

Other things to note

I have two bedrooms each with a queen bed. Each room is $56 for one person; $67 for two persons. This includes occupancy tax for the City of Palm Springs. The large bathroom and shower is shared with the other guest room. This includes occupancy tax for the City of Palm Springs. There are two wash basins on opposite sides. In addition, there is a separate powder room for guest use.
Those traveling together but needing separate rooms are offered special pricing.
Seasonal pricing is in effect from November 1 through April 30. Prices are subject to change without notice. Thanks.

Great little spot in Palm Springs. Place was kept clean, outdoor space is nice and a small pool was great for a few laps in the morning! Clarence was very accommodating and friendly.

I have stayed a few times with Clarence and find his house a "little gem" in Palm Springs. Its spacious, well appointed (lush towels for the pool and bath) and quiet. The sounds from the little waterfall outside the screen door in the bedroom is always nice to fall asleep to and the pool is lovely. The wifi is strong. As a host, Clarence is exceptional. He is knowledgable about the Palm Springs area, makes himself avail if you need assistance and provides a continental breakfast, daily.

Clerence was very polite and knowable of the area and points of interest. His house was very clean and he made our visit easy with house rules in our room along with our house key.

My very first Airbnb experience was definitely a great experience. The host was very responsive, attentive, respectful, and extremely friendly. His home is very inviting. So, now all of my Airbnb experience must be better or equal to that of Mr. Clarence. Thank you Clarence for allowing me to share your home for a short while. You were a great host. Darren

Looking for an affordable, great value in Palm Springs? This is it. Clarence has hosted via Airbnb for years and it clearly shows. Great breakfast options (let him know you have dietary restrictions), easy access to downtown by bike (he has a loaner), car or ride share, a comfortable bed, and all the amenities you'll need for a good trip. I didn't use the pool, but it looked clean and inviting. Thanks for providing a great home base for my fun time in Palm Springs!
