For decades, Hollywood stars, wealthy hedonists, sun-seeking retirees and family holidaymakers have all been flocking to Palm Springs, which is nestled in the shadow of the San Jancinto Peak. Some come from neighbouring Los Angeles, for a quick bathe in the hot springs and an antidote to big city life. Outdoorsy types flock here to pull on the walking boots and hit the otherworldly heights of the Joshua Tree National Park. Others come to enjoy a round of 18 holes on acclaimed championship golf courses, or to wonder at the handsome 1950s architecture that lines the palm-spotted boulevards. Whatever you're after, you can rest assured that Palm Springs holiday rentals are your ticket to doing it all in style.
If you don't want to settle for just another tourist-crammed hotel where you’ll have to queue for the spa and jostle amid crowds of other visitors in the breakfast room every morning, it might be better to opt for one of the holiday rentals in Palm Springs. This range of private homes, stylish villas, and neat condos butting up to the edge of the town's iconic golfing fairways promises a whole different experience. With a pad to call your own, you'll be kicking back and enjoying the town like a local. You'll have a kitchen to cook up your own Californian feasts, and al fresco dining spaces to have leisurely meals under the twinkling desert stars. Not to mention plenty of room to dump all that holiday gear once you arrive.
True to its name, Palm Springs is a fine place to come if you're looking to bathe in warm mineral waters that have just babbled straight from the Californian soils. There are plenty of spas and geothermal wellness centres where the outdoor pools will gently soothe the muscles and spirit. A relaxing round of golf in one of the acclaimed local courses is a great way to complement it all, and so is a massage or makeover in one of the town's health clinics. Adventurers will also find plenty of things to do in this corner of California. The Joshua Tree National Park beckons to the west with its dusty trails and canyons, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway offers a gateway to the ponderosa pine forests, and San Jacinto Peak has the challenging Cactus to Clouds Trail for you to conquer.
The whole of Palm Springs is primed for the walker. You'll be able to flit between the Tex-Mex grills and boutiques of Indian Canyon Drive and Palm Canyon Drive with ease, and make it back and forth to most all Palm Springs holiday rentals without needing to hitch a lift. That said, bicycle hire is readily available, offering a way to whizz through the desert lanes with added comfort. And there are plenty of opportunities to rent a car, perhaps for an adventure out to the peaks of the San Bernardino Mountains.
