Absolutely STUNNING home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment that I inquired about staying at the Galvan Estate, Arnold has been nothing short of fantastic. Every question that I had was answered promptly. I recently stayed here for my bachelorette party with some girl friends, and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect location/home. The house is absolutely breath taking. From the minute you walk in to the minute you leave, the house leaves you mesmerized. The backyard: with its mini golf, gorgeous salt water pool, volleyball net, basketball court and spacious bar area allows for various entertainment for any type of guest!! I highly recommend this home and cannot wait to stay there again!! It was absolutely perfect.

Unforgettable Estate

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married at the Galvan Estate this March (2017), and we used the estate to house ourselves and our wedding party, as well as hosting the ceremony and reception. The estate is kept in immaculate condition by Arnold (Azucena) and Marvin. There is no exaggeration of beauty in any of the posted pictures for this property. It has every amenity you could imagine, and Arnold was kept himself very accessible leading up to the event, as we sorted out last minute details. Their experience with events at the property is clear, and they thought of all our needs ahead of time.

We would come here again just to vacation. My only regret is we didn't to spend enough time playing basketball on the court in the backyard, swimming in the pool, or playing shuffleboard. As a getaway estate, I appreciated the fairly private and quiet location of the estate. You need a car to get anywhere, but unless you're going to stay in Palm Springs right along a Buzz trolley route, you'd need that car anyway.

I can't wait to go back!

Outdoor living at it's best! We hosted a small destination wedding for family and friends at this estate. We took advantage of the beautiful desert during the day for golf, sightseeing, and shopping, then in the evenings our guests joined us at the Galvan for dinner and socializing in the incredible weather and outdoor space. Our family and friends were able to bond, get to know each other, and have an amazing time because of the wonderful environment/amenities the Galvan Estate provides. Adults and kids were swimming, playing volleyball, basketball, ping-pong, shuffleboard, and mostly hang out at the outside bar. After a casual 3 days hanging out, on wedding day the outdoor space was able to transform into an intimate formal setting that made our ceremony amazing! As for Arnold, and staff they made planning, arrival, and departure effortless. Making 90% of wedding plans from out of town can be nerve racking. Arnold always got back to us regarding any questions in a very timely manner, he was able to suggest many vendors in the area, and his property manager Marvin met us at arrival/departure and tended to every need or concern during our stay. I would highly recommend this vacation spot for any wedding, event, family reunion, or group vacation. Thank you for making our stay unforgettable.

Ideal for relaxation and fun.

  • 5 of 5

This house is ideal for a large Family getaway or a girls - boys weekend-week.

The home itself is pretty secluded it has a great sound system in the back and throughout the entire home. More TVs than you could ever dream of, we asked to watch a fight that happened to be playing on the weekend we were there and the owner was very accommodating.

The kitchen is well stocked if you like to cook or if you want to have a barbecue this is the place to do it. I went with just my daughters (22 and 24) so the house was slightly large for just the three of us,this home has the potential for huge events and I see why -

The backyard is phenomenal the pictures don't do it justice.

Arnold the owner and Marvin the gentleman who helped us with check in could not have been more kind and helpful. Your are very close to town and great restaurants as well.

There are bikes and in addition to the Volleyball,Basketball, huge pool and putting green outside the garage is fully stocked with fun activities as well as four bicycles and a life size Jenga game. Needless to say, something for everyone. The home was very clean, and well maintained. The couches were brand-new. I'd recommend bringing a pillow if you can, that would be my only suggestion, they were a little thin for me, but That's pretty standard in rental homes. Everything else was phenomenal.

Fantastic House and Property

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at this property. Everything about the stay was first class. Arnold was excellent to deal with and always answered questions promptly. The property management team on site was also top notch.

The house ... unreal! Beautiful house with all the amenities you need. Completely wired, great kitchen, lots of space, and tons of extras.

As good as the house was, the backyard was even better. It is literally like your own private oasis. Views of the mountains. Unbelievable pool and hot tub. Basketball and volleyball were great. Backyard kitchen that seats a ton of people. You won't want to leave this property when there. Would do it again in heartbeat.
