Her only requests were Palm Springs and Bro Tanks and our planning did not disappoint. My friend Angie found an amazing house through Air B&B for us to rent for 3 days and 2 nights. The website Vacation Palm Springs had numerous homes available with tons of pictures and honest reviews. We found our mid century ranch house closer to Palm Desert but opted for it as it was slightly less expensive and did not require the mandatory 4 night stay that many Palm Springs rentals ask for.
The House was just off the main drag of Monterey Avenue in Palm Desert. We were within convenient driving distance of restaurants and the major box stores. We all caravanned down on Friday, dropped our bags and picked up some sustenance at the nearby Ralphs Fresh Fare. We decided to cook the whole weekend and it was the best decision as we got to thoroughly enjoy a rest at the house.
Our ranch had 4 bedrooms and slept 8 (I mean 12) comfortably. We had a fully stocked kitchen and deck complete with an in ground pool and jacuzzi. There was a great deal of privacy as well as multiple nooks to lay out or sit around a nice bon fire (if you could handle one in that heat!)
We spent Friday night in (mostly) eating, sipping cool drinks, and listening to music on the Beats Pill. Saturday morning through the evening was all for sun bathing and BBQ-ing, catching up and cooling off in the pool.
We journeyed into Palm Springs on Saturday night, visiting the local hot dance spots and bars. If you don’t mind bright colors and some serious dancing – I would suggest Toucan’s Tiki Lounge. It was our favourite.
All in all it was a wonderful weekend and I am so happy we got to take some time out of LA to explore the beautiful mountains and the oasis that is considered the Palm of God. Happy [almost] wedding Sarah!
