About the property

Approx 2000 Sq Ft 2 Br / 3 Ba set up for families and friends

This former home of comedian Lily Tomlin has been recently renovated with high-end fixtures, appliances, electronics, art and furnishings.

Located in Sundance Resort, which offers the security of a gated community, you have access to tennis courts / club and acres of greenbelts with walking trails, pic-nic pavilions and an off-leash dog area. Amazing mountain views and no power lines. Villa has its own walled front and back yards, neatly landscaped, and a private pool and spa.

This is a perfect place for a couple, or a family or group of friends. The dinning room table adjusts to seat 6 or 8. The second master has a queen bed and a day bed that converts to a king. There is also a Room and Board sectional sofa in the living room that has a queen bed (uses both springs and air inflation for surprising comfort). This allows for a wide range of sleeping options.

City permit # PS - 6302. City certified for 8 overnight and 12 daytime guests.

About Alan Friel

I am a Los Angeles lawyer who has had several vacation homes in Palm Springs over the years that I have rented when not using it personally. I also rent homes when I go away on holiday, and have high standards. Both experiences have taught me how to provide you an excellent experience. You will find everything you would want in a holiday home, and more.

Alan Friel purchased this villa in 2015

Why Alan Friel chose Palm Springs

At approx. 2000 square feet and with small, walled front and rear yards, and a private pool and spa, Sundance Villas offer the experience of a much larger property, with a more manageable footprint. The villas are built around two large greenbelts, accessible from your private yard (one of which permits dogs off leash). Sundance has long been popular with snowbirds Built in the 80s, some other villas are in need of an interior update. However, forget what you may have seen before, I spared no expense in bringing this former home of Lily Tomlin back to pristine condition and with luxury finishes. The resort grounds and facilities are well maintained and the grounds are beautiful.

What makes this villa unique

North Palm Springs is seeing a resurgence. All the best stores are now on the north side. There is no shortage of restaurants and bars nearby. Plenty of golf and other recreation in the area, Great mountain hiking trails, with a trail head just up the street.

Overall, a quiet, secure, safe, well equipped, and centrally located; perfect for couples weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Check in and check out procedures were exceedingly easy and convenient. The pool and spa were clean, comfortable, and private. Located very short drives from airport, downtown, and grocery. Beds were very comfortable. Large drip coffee maker! Internet is a DSL connection with wifi extenders, so was easy to connect but speed was quite slow. Garage with laundry was a great feature. Bedrooms were private. Gated community, very safe and secure feeling. Casa de Kiki was a convenient, safe, comfortable, centrally located house that is just ideal for a relaxing couples getaway of any duration. Highly recommended and we would come back.

Memoriable November

  • 5 of 5

One of the more perfect Novembers of our lives. We had company from Germany with us for the first two weeks and then enjoyed the wonderful place by ourselves for the rest of the month. Alan's place is awesome. The outdoor space/pool area is second to none and we sat out there with the fire on for a long time. Alan was always there when we needed him with the help we needed. Thank you. The weather was perfect, which we are sure you arranged for us. Thank you for everything.

Great Weekend in a Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last weekend for a wedding and had the best time! The house was immaculate, the beds were comfortable, the pool and hot tub were amazing, and the location could not have been any better.

The owner was very communicative, laid out expectations very clearly, and had an extensive instructions manual provided for just about every element of the house. Within a short period of time, we knew how to properly operate the HVAC, the wifi, the sound system, the TVs, the pool, the hot tub, etc which was a major plus. We would not have figured out a lot of these processes otherwise. We very much enjoyed staying at a place that provided all these additional luxuries that made the overall experience even better.

Most of all, Alan was very responsive when we needed him (really only about checking in and checking out as everything was so easy that we didn't have to bug him), and the house met our every expectation.

I would definitely recommend staying here, and next time we're back in Palm Springs, I will be reaching out to Alan for an encore performance!

Sundance Resort Wedding Trip

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our trip. Perfect location. The heart of Palm Springs and all the restaurants / shopping is a very short drive away - maybe 5 minutes? The grocery store is even closer. Great house to relax in. Clean and comfortable! Amazing backyard and pool. The owner of the house was great. Very responsive and helpful. Would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Palm Springs!
