The spacious layout of the living area also includes interior dining for six, and just off the dining area, if movies and conversation aren't your thing, you can enjoy PacMan, Donkey Kong, Frogger ... and 57 other games on the game table for those who want to reminisce their wonder years.

About Darvy Franco

We live in San Francisco with our two loving sons; Bailey the golden retriever and Brutus the bulldog. While we love San Francisco, we love to escape to Palm Springs for the rest and relaxation that only a pool and some sun can offer.

Darvy Franco purchased this house in 2015

Why Darvy Franco chose Racquet Club South

We looked at several properties in Palm Springs before making the decision to buy 21 Palms. While there are so many gorgeous places in PS, we could not find any that offered the high ceilings with the openness that we found in this property. We immediately fell in love with it and soon realized that with a bit of upgrades, we could make the property reach her full potential as a vacation rental and weekend getaway.

What makes this house unique

21 Palms was named for it's 21 rustic palm trees that stand on the property. We can't take credit for those since they have been growing for years. Privacy and the space the property offers is what this property offers. Every guest can have their own escape within the confines of the property.

We are proud of the new additions of a front yard fountain, side yard putting green and back yard pool bar. We love to escape here, and hope you will too.

Relaxing, Classy Home

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad we'd selected this house out of the many available to rent in Palm Springs.

The high ceilings and natural light make this home a dream. It's tastefully decorated - and the accommodations were spacious and cozy. We were a small group - 4 women - and it was great for each of us to have our own comfortable beds (even the murphy bed!), nice bedding and plenty of bathrooms.

The kitchen is great- there were a selection of appliances and utensils to prepare the simplest to gourmet meals. Not only was there a fridge, but a wine fridge and a mini-fridge in the outdoor cabana. We dined inside and alfresco - the barbeque was sweet!

While the interior features were fantastic, the outside was the BEST, dreamy! The pool was the perfect size and temperature, the hot tub a nice reprieve from the long day, couches around the fire pit (even though we didn't turn it on), the light features, everything! Seriously a fancy, fun way to spend the long weekend - different from our daily grinds. The only thing I wish we had was more time to enjoy the hammocks and put-green.

Mark was one-step ahead of the game when it came to helping us - he called the day before, was readily available when we arrived. He had intended to meet us a the property and give us a tour, but had an unexpected injury and did not. He gave us instructions on how to get in (easy!), then walked us through all we needed to know about the house. He stated he was available at any time should we need anything or have any questions, but the house had it all!

We left the house only wishing we'd stayed a few more days. Thanks Mark for a great getaway house!

Great spaces

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time staying here. Good spaces both indoor and outdoor. Beds are very comfortable. We had 3 couples so we each had our own bathroom. There is a grocery store just a few blocks away and it's in close proximity to the airport. We would definitely stay here again.

I see the price has skyrocketed since we stayed there. I wouldn't stay there for the $688 a night they are charging now as there were things that needed attention that were easy to overlook when we paid an average market price.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. All of the amenities were great! The grounds and landscaping around the house were extremely nice. We loved the pool (although very shallow), hot tub, BBQ, and the fire pit. The place was very clean and spacious for the four of us. We did not like the cameras in the back yard though. Plenty of towels, extra linens, washer and dryer.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriends stayed at this gorgeous home for my Birthday in a September 2017. We had such wonderful accommodations, and they greeted us at the house with smiles and all the info we would need. Hopefully I will stay here again! I most certainly recommend this Home to anyone else lucky enough to stay! What a pleasure.

Splendid getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and we had an absolutely wonderful time! The property lives up to all the photos online and kept our group of 6 content & comfortable during our stay.

It was so nice to be received by the Property Manager who checked us in, gave us a tour the house and highlighted the rules/regs vs. having to read it online or on a piece of paper. We weren't far from the freeway, shopping outlets were nearby (~20 min away) and downtown Palm Springs was right there (5-6 min drive)! The 4th "bedroom" doubled as a game/lounge room and the guys enjoyed playing with the old school arcade game in there. We also liked that in addition to the A/C in the house, there was a fan available in every room in case we needed it. The most enjoyable part of the house (where we spent the most time) was the backyard - lounge chairs & sofa, grill AND the pool were just the respite we needed from our daily grind. We enjoyed our time at 21 Palms so much that we are already looking to book the house for next year!

Kid friendly home and pool

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in the home, initially we were concerned as there was a home renovation commencing next door, however it didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the property. We had our grandchildren with us who really enjoyed the pool as did the adults. Backyard is quite private and kid friendly.

While in Palm Springs, we love to entertain, and we usually eat in most nights, so we need a well equipped kitchen, not disappointed , however the barbecue was a disappointment, it was old and needed to be replaced.

Overall the home met with our expectations.

Owner's Response: Thank you Beth. I am glad that you and your group enjoyed your stay. I also appreciate your feedback on the BBQ and we have replaced it. We hope that you would come and visit us again next time.
