About our home

Welcome to our little slice of paradise in beautiful Palm Springs!

The house is bright and spacious – though you’ll do most of your living in the backyard. Enjoy sun-filled days in the sparkling private pool. There are several areas to relax and enjoy the day outdoors, with a sectional sofa (perfect for cocktail hour!), lounge chairs to soak up the sun, a dining table that easily seats six, large barbecue and a fire pit. A soak in the hot tub while admiring the stars in the dark sky is the perfect end to your day. The backyard also offers a beautiful view of the San Jacinto mountains to the west, and breathtaking sunrises. In the closet you'll find outdoor toys and games, in addition to board games, puzzles and books when you want to kick back and relax.

Inside, there are three bedrooms for you and your family or guests. The master bedroom features a king size bed, en-suite bathroom and patio doors to the back yard. The master bedroom is on the opposite side of the house from the guest rooms, allowing for quiet time and privacy.

The two guest rooms each have a queen size bed. There is a full bathroom located between the two guest rooms. The back guest room also has a desk and printer for those who need to get a little work down while away. We also have a queen size inflatable bed that my nieces and nephew love to use to sleep outside on the back patio when they're visiting. We've also used it in a pinch when we had more than 6 people staying with us.

This home is ideal for those who love to cook and entertain. The kitchen is fully stocked with lots of extras, including an espresso machine, coffee maker, waffle iron, panini press, KitchenAid mixer, rice cooker, slow cooker, toaster, immersion blender and more. An abundance of herbs and spices are in the cabinet for use during your stay, too.

Our home is just a 7 minute drive from the airport and about the same to downtown Palm Springs. The grocery store is just a few blocks away, so you can walk, bike or drive. There are lots of wide streets with bike lanes and two bicycles in the garage for your use.

We have regular pool maintenance and a gardener, ensuring you can relax and enjoy your stay. The home will be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival. Depending upon the length of your stay, the house cleaner is available to visit during your stay if you wish. Please note there is a $130 cleaning fee for all swaps.

We are pet-free and prefer to keep our home that way, though we are certainly open to discussion and have welcomed a few well-behaved pets.

My elderly parents visit on occasion, so there is a mobility walker, cane and wheelchair available, if needed. The house is wheelchair accessible, though please note there is a low step in/out of the house to the backyard that may be difficult for those requiring a wheelchair at all times.

Please be aware we are interested in longer-term swaps - 2 weeks to several months, only.

We have a home in downtown Toronto available for home swaps as well, Look on LHS for Downtown Toronto - Modern Condo.

Where is it?


We are located on a quiet cul-de-sac just outside the downtown area of Palm Springs; away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to easily pop downtown for a stroll through the incredible mid-century modern design stores and funky, retro shops. There's a great food scene in and around Palm Springs, wonderful spa experiences, and amazing hiking trails.

Buzzy restaurants
We love checking out the fabulous culinary scene in Palm Springs and have a binder with loads of recommendations, from our favourite happy hour (Tropicale), to innovative cuisine (Rooster and The Pig), to great shared plates (Counter Reformation), to a great drag queen cabaret (Copa).
Retail therapy
If you're into mid-century modern design, you'll love the shops in downtown Palm Springs! And for those looking to score a deal, the Desert Hills Premium Outlet Mall is massive and just 15 minutes away!
Bit of culture
Beyond the famous Coachella and Stage Coach music festivals, Palm Springs also offers lots of live entertainment venues. For those loving the classic 60s/70s/80s music, many of the artists of those eras cruise through hosting shows at area venues.
Walks in the park
There are lots of wonderful hiking trails to explore in the area.
Spot of exercise
There are two bikes in the garage for you to head out and enjoy the convenient bike lanes throughout Palm Springs. An abundance of hiking trails await, too!
Day tripping
In our guest binder you'll find information and maps for some of our favourite day trips, like the Salton Sea, Salvation Mountain, Joshua Tree State Park and Coronado Island.
