This place is a self-contained resort, a stylish oasis. We had our teen boys and my mother in tow for a magical long weekend. If you read all the reviews you will see how comfortable the beds are, how beautiful the rooms are designed, and how clean everything is, especially during COVID. The kitchen is so well stocked I thought I was home, paper towels, Reynolds Wrap, spices, beautiful pans, many many knives, drawers full of every gadget you need, cutting boards, plastic cups for the pool, great dishes and bowls, a coffee maker, and every kind of drink glass for cocktails in the evening. The blender was a much-used appliance. Did I mention they had ice already in the freezer and a bowl of lemons and limes for us? They don't list all the appliances but there is a toaster, an electric griddle for pancakes, a crockpot, and a small toaster/oven for nachos. We used the outdoor grill by the pool for hot dogs and hamburgers. My 81-year-old mother swam every morning and night, and to see her sitting relaxed under the outdoor veranda reading made my heart sing. The boys loved the pool, corn toss game, jacuzzi with lights, treehouse, giant connect 4, and the pool which was full of inflatable toys such as a pink flamingo, sparkly unicorn, and noodles. We didn't expect this, but what a treat! We spent one day at Palm Springs Air Museum. Incredible! You will fall in love with the original art in the house. This was our first time staying in Palm Springs. We didn't know about the noise ordinance. Just google Palm Springs Noise Ordinance Vacation Rental to read before your visit. At night we heard incredibly loud buzzing for about 20 minutes. We thought it was the electrical lines. We laughed when we found out it was the male cicada looking for a mate! As you can see from my notes, we had an amazing time at the Banana Cabana and can't wait to return. There was so much room, everyone could occupy their own space. What a treat after being cooped up in a house the past few months. I wish all of our experiences on Airbnb were this good and this house was the epitome of a perfect elegant rental.

Honestly I've stayed at a lot of AIRBNBS but something about the banana cabana was such a different, yet awesome experience. We loved this spot so much! The vibes here were insane. All the little touches to the rooms, the backyard, and the living room were so thoughtful and creative! An unforgettable experience for sure, I will definitely be back. If you're 2nd guessing your stay here, PLEASE JUST BOOK IT! You will not regret it!!!

This property is amazing! The house has everything you will ever need. The outdoor area is huge with a pool (floats provided by the owner) and a bunch of lawn games. Will definitely stay here again.

My family and I had the most amazing time at the Banana Cabana and we can't wait to go back! The house is a beautiful mid-century modern adorned with the most creative and well thought out decor. The meticulous attention to detail made for such pleasant surprises! Plenty of space for a family of four with two small kids. There were so many options to keep not only adults entertained but kids too! From the treehouse/bar to the board games and lawn games ... there was never a dull moment or cry for "I'm bored"! We are looking forward to our next stay and can't wait to make the Banana Cabana a tradition for our annual PS family trip!!

Two Thumbs Ups At The Banana Cabana

My 4-year-old son gave our stay two thumbs up! He said his favorite part of Palm Springs was the pool and the house and his not favorite part was leaving. LOL. I loved hearing that since this is why I chose this rental house in the first place: the house, the private pool and the treehouse was an extra fun touch! I surprised my husband for his 50th birthday with a family weekend getaway. Since the pandemic we needed a break and my son needed to swim swim swim. Out of all the places I researched I also chose this house because it was a mix of mid-century modern for my husband and kid friendly for our toddler and newborn. Plus it had great reviews. We spent the whole time at the pool and the baby also stayed cool under the canopy, which is also why I chose this place. We were greeted with a welcome card on the dining table, fresh flowers a wonderful fruit display...with a pineapple! That was perfect because mama drank virgin pina coladas all weekend. The only reason I put 4 starts for communication was because I needed to know how and if they upgraded their cleaning and sanitizing procedures since the pandemic and I didn't hear back soon enough to book, but I booked anyways before I heard back because I loved the place so much. They did get back to me and not only did the place look and feel safe and sanitized they left a lysol wipes for us, the guests! This is a wonderful getaway spot and I highly recommend it and since we live in Los Angeles we definitely want to be back.

Even better than the pictures

Very clean, neat, and welcoming. Very charming and better than the pictures. Backyard is great. Pool is huge, loaded with floaties. Our kids had a blast. Location on a busy street wasn't really an issue. We could hear some street noise, but the backyard still felt like an oasis. Bedrooms are quiet with blackout curtains. We would come again!

Thanks for such an unforgettable weekend birthday for my mom! The small touches like fruits on the table and plenty of water in the fridge was nice and thoughtful! Had the pleasure of checking in with the owner himself, he was so kind and showed me around the grounds. The pictures really don't do justice, my family and I felt like we were at a resort, the house had a real good vibe and it was perfect for a getaway weekend. The kitchen is fully stocked with ALL the appliances and kitchenware you need, I cooked all weekend and it was more than enough to cook with ease. (margarita glasses, a blender, toaster, outdoor grill, the whole shabang! ^_^) The pool, tree house, fire pit, and hot tub were spot on! Literally so much to do to keep yourself entertained with good company. The house decoration was so cute as well and the Banana Cabana theme made it fun, as well as the amazon prime alexa speakers lol Very clean and made it easy for us to feel safe during the pandemic, was able to wash and dry some clothes as well. Overall an amazing and unforgettable experience! So glad it was available for us! We will be back!!! Thank you again for the warm welcome! :)

What a find. We were so thrilled to get everything we wanted and more at this clean and comfortable mid century compound. Great location that's close to restaurants, shops and hiking, with a huge pool that gets great sun all day, a comfy couch cabana, outdoor kitchen and even a functioning tiki bar at the base of a treehouse that's definitely not just for kids (cool place for drinks up there). We stayed for a few days, but would have loved to stay longer. Perfect time! Wonderful hosts. Would definitely rent again.

Our family had a great vacation! Kitchen was completely stocked with all appliances and utensils which helped tremendously! Loved the outdoor BBQ area too. Outdoor space and pool were fantastic!!!

Great spot to relax and have fun. Amazing host, very clean and stocked home. Will absolutely be staying here again.

Robert L. July 8, 2020

This place feels like a mini oasis. It feels both like a time capsule of Palm Springs aesthetic, but brought to the 21st century. If you like unique and memorable finds, you'll like this. Everything was stocked as needed. This host knows how to host. Great vacation spot.

Wonderful place to stay . Love the owners beautiful details . Very welcoming

Heather J. March 23, 2020

The rental itself was tastefully decorated and proximity to downtown Palm Springs was great. Less than 5 minutes to the airport. That being said , it is located in a major thoroughfare so if you want real peace, not the best place as we could hear traffic all day and night if we were outside. Pool was great - we had some issues with the hot tub but that should be getting repaired soon as the property managers were on it. Lucky for us they were willing to compensate to make up for the inability to use it . Kitchen was fully equipped and had everything we needed. Thank you !

Fun & Easy

My wife and I spent three weeks at the Banana Cabana. It has a cool vibe to work away from home and take fun breaks. It's a two-block walk to an awesome dog park. It's a five-minute drive to the nearby health club and to downtown Palm Springs. Enjoyed every day and night there.

Amazing house!!!

This house was the perfect getaway for our family. It's clean, has great decor and all the amenities we were looking for. The heated pool, hot tub and bar area were a huge hit! Its also super close to the airport and just a few minutes from downtown Palm Springs.
