Why Michael Dorman chose Ruth Hardy Park

Full modern renovations inside and out while maintaining mid century charm and history. The backyard and landscaping make this a very private, relaxing environment that does not disappoint.

What makes this house unique

Some of the unique benefits of this home include: the location; the open great room that showcases indoor outdoor living in a classic mid century way; the backyard pool area and landscaping are gorgeous; the lighting indoors and outside are perfect for all occasions; the mountain views from the front and backyard are unobstructed and wonderful; my favorite spot inside is the leather chaise for 2 in the center of the great room; speakers in all rooms to enjoy music and entertainment; fruit trees in front yard include lemon, lime and orange.

A Wonderful House in a Central Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Movie Colony Neighborhood, where this house was located. It was easy to walk to Palm Canyon Drive. There were five of us, and the house was a great size since we had three separate bedrooms, all with their own bathrooms. We had everything we needed.

Because of the foliage in the backyard and the tasteful fencing, it felt really private while hanging out in the backyard by the pool. It was a short weekend for us, and we would have loved to stay longer.

Beautiful home, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This place is amazing. The house is beautiful, bright, spacious and very well maintained. The pool and gardens are perfect for relaxing in the warm winter sun (we stayed over New Year). A short walk to downtown and right across the street from Ruth Hardy park, the location has something to offer everyone. We're looking for an excuse to come back! Highly, highly recommend.

Beautiful and Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 'Hilton Estate' stay this week.

The property is in a great location (the Movie Colony) within walking distance of the Palm Springs restaurants and shops yet it is extremely private and quiet. I wanted a 3 bedroom home with separate baths for each room and a large shady backyard with pool and a large great room. This property provides all of that and more. Fantastic!

The owner Michael was always prompt in answering any questions and easy to work with.

We're definitely looking forward to the next time we can rent the property.

Outstanding experience! Gorgeous, pleasant, serene

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home. You can feel the history here, and the back garden captures the best of desert flora. The pool area is shaded nicely by the palo verde trees for much of the day, so if you seek a little shade, it's there for you. If you seek sun, it's right there too. The outdoor shower (hidden in the corner) was pleasant and really cool. The home itself is nicely appointed, and flows nicely. Common area opens to large back yard through a wall of sliding glass, and each bedroom features its own bath. We had a great time here, and didn't want to leave. The location is excellent, with a large park across the street. Shopping and dining nearby, although we were more inclined to relax in the home and make our own meals. Highly recommended!
