Hinshaw Hideaway

Bohemian retreat steps from downtown with desert mountain views and heated pool

A bohemian-modern retreat steps from downtown Palm Springs, Hinshaw Hideaway is the former winter escape of JCW and Wilberta Hinshaw, developers of the historic La Plaza shopping center. Built in 1934, the sprawling 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath ranch sits on landscaped grounds in the Movie Colony district, a 10-minute stroll from restaurants, galleries, and shopping.

Styled in a mix of mid-century modern and Renaissance-era decor with modern technology throughout, including Sonos surround-sound inside the home, Hinshaw Hideaway is an eclectic escape that invites relaxation.

The home opens onto a cozy sitting area with a velvet ottoman facing a decorative fireplace, a unique church pew bench, and a vintage church stained-glass window. A colorful stained-glass chandelier hangs above a 6-seat dining table. Just off this room is a fully-equipped kitchen designed for entertaining, featuring stainless steel appliances, marble countertops and a wine fridge.

Beyond the living area is a light-filled living room, which opens onto the expansive outdoor patio through sliding doors. On one end, a full-length leather sofa and two stylish hanging chairs frame a 65” Smart TV. On the other, two chairs, accented by fur, face a chic, glass-topped wet bar crafted with a natural finish and a live edge. A turntable, linked to Sonos, sets the scene for entertaining.

For the real entertainment, just step outside. A resort-style, heated swimming pool lies at the center of an impressive, South-facing backyard lined with palm trees and surrounded by a lush, 10-foot privacy wall. Soak in the sun in one of the cozy loungers along one end of the pool, or catch up with friends around on cushioned sitting area around a stone fireplace along the other. In a separate corner, a spacious hot tub with built-in cushions and 18 jets faces a second stone outdoor fireplace and outdoor bar area.

Three more sitting areas surround the pool to provide ample room for entertaining, including a 6-seat dining table. With a BBQ grill and 6-seat outdoor dining table, you can enjoy dinner al fresco.

Between three spacious bedrooms, Hinshaw Hideaway comfortably sleeps up to 6 guests. Each bedroom, located in a separate corner of the home for privacy, features a Casper mattress and pillows and Lux Linen sheets and duvets. The master suite, located off the East end of the living area, is styled in rustic, mid-century decor with wood-paneled walls, a king-sized bed and a 50th anniversary Herman Miller Eames rosewood and leather lounge chair and ottoman. This room also has a 55” flat-screen TV and a luxurious bathroom with marble walls and a soaker tub. The suite opens onto the backyard through floor to ceiling pocket doors, steps from a cushioned sitting area shaded by umbrellas.

The second master bedroom located on the Northwest corner, is whimsically styled with a four-post, king-sized bed, an early California Monterey sofa and a decorative vintage TV. This room also has an en-suite bath and walk-in shower. A private door leads to the backyard.

The third bedroom, located in the Southwest corner, is styled in eclectic decor with a stained glass door, a Herman Miller Eames rocking chair and unique built-in desk. This bedroom has a queen-sized bed and en-suite bath with a walk-in shower.

For added convenience, this home also features a private washer and dryer, additional half-bath, and Aesop products. A spacious driveway with charging station provides room for up to 3 cars, giving you the freedom to explore the surrounding desert, including Joshua Tree, located less than an hour away.

Of course, with the restaurants, shops, galleries and parks of downtown Palm Springs opening a world of entertainment options for every mood a 10-minute stroll away, you can spend your vacation car-free. Walk to Wellness Park and meditate in the garden, wander through antique stores, or find an open tennis court at Ruth Hardy Park

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Stunning Home We had the most wonderful time in Palm Springs staying at this beautiful home. The backyard is incredible. So much space, multiple fireplaces, perfect pool and hot tub. The inside of the home is incredible as well! The house is stocked with every thing you could need - pool towels, sunscreen, kitchen items, amazing shampoo and lotion products. Beds were very comfortable, linens so soft. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this home. Quiet neighborhood, felt very safe and it was an easy walk to many shops and restaurants. We had an amazing and relaxing weekend and would 100% love to return here some time. Highly recommend for anyone headed to palm springs looking for a place to stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete privacy with great location. We spent a long weekend in July enjoying the Palm Springs heat. The pool and spa were perfect to cool down. Casino, restaurants and upscale shops all within walking distance. House was a beautiful bohemian retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing home in the perfect location! We stayed at this home in June and had an incredible experience. The home itself was expertly designed and furnished, no detail missed! We were able to walk to the downtown strip of Palm Springs and enjoy the restaurants and shops as well. Looking forward to another great trip very soon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE MOST GORGEOUS, LUXURIOUS, AMAZING HOUSE EVER This house is absolute perfection!! They've thought of everything to make your stay beautiful, comfortable, and special, from top notch, friendly service, to the most stunning decor, to buttery soft bed linens and fluffy towels, a stocked wet bar, and the best backyard in Palm Springs! It's even better than the pictures!! My husband and I stayed for a week over fourth of July. We LOVED cooking in the beautiful, custom, gourmet kitchen that overlooks a stunning, stone courtyard filled with aged olive trees. Where else can you find that in Palm Springs??!! Every single bedroom is beautifully done and very roomy, especially the super stylish master bedroom that has a big, snuggly King bed and the sexiest double-headed, open shower you've ever seen! We were obsessed with the overall boho-chic aesthetic of the house, including the incredible stone floor that runs throughout, all of their rugs and throws, and the fabulous striped bean bag chairs outside! We even got them for our house in LA! When I had to get some work done, I was thrilled to discover that the WiFi reached effortlessly all over the house and the backyard. The house and the property are kept impeccably clean and well manicured. And, very importantly, the house was always cool, which is hard to accomplish during the hot month of July when temps were well over 100 degrees. It just didn't feel like your typical Palm Springs rental. Now let's talk about this insane backyard... The pool is GIANT and designed so well with deep, plush cushions along the side where you can hang out, as well as a shelf in the shallow end with an umbrella, where I spent all my time reading while chilling in the water. But there's a ton of places all over the yard for sitting, laying out, eating in the sunshine or under the stars, and even playing games! My husband and I were shocked by how big the hot tub was! It's crazy cool -- like a football field for a jacuzzi! We had SO MUCH FUN outside all day and night. Plus, we brought our 2 little pups, and they loved cruising around the yard too - it's so big and totally secure, there were lots of places for them to explore and opportunities for shade. You really can't beat the location. It's very private and in a beautiful, high-end neighborhood. It's gated, so it feels very safe. And it's within walking distance to a great coffee/smoothie shop and minutes away from lots of amazing restaurants and grocery stores. We were just so blown away by this property. I just can't say enough good things about it and our experience here. You will love every minute. We are going to stay here again and again. Cant wait to go back!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your own Personal Resort This house is AMAZING!! You feel like you are at your own private resort. The design is beautiful, chic and incredibly well done. We had 3 couple and then a few friends join us by the pool for the day. It's the perfect place for a family or a few couples or friends to get away for a few days. Although I would be happy to stay as long as possible. FIVE Stars all the way!
