7 Homes with Swimming Pools in Palm Springs that Families will Love
Make a splash with the kids in these top homes
If you want to get away from the chaos and misery (OK, that’s a bit much admittedly) of city life, then look no further than Palm Springs. Packed with gardens, parks and trails, the municipality is like a tropical paradise. Ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway high into the sky and look down on the rugged mountains surrounding the tall, swaying palm trees that characterise the city. Head to the outskirts to climb the trails of Mount San Jacinto, or browse the intriguing works on display at the Palm Springs Art Museum. There’s so much to do in this city; but to truly enjoy it, you’ll want to be staying in a luxury abode with a pool (it gets mighty hot in summer in these parts). Luckily, we at Plum Guide have hand-picked homes all across the city, so here are our 7 homes with swimming pools in Palm Springs that families will love.
Enjoy a relaxing stay at Sandy Glare
The Sandy Glare has a swimming pool that guarantees a peaceful dip. Surrounded by a wall of green vegetation, it seems to be formed in the shape of a face (depending on your viewpoint) and has its own toddler area. Next to the pool, you can knock together a table tennis rally or simply sit at the outside table for lunch. Inside, the house is beautifully decorated with plump cushions and wooden and marble upholstery. The bedrooms are luxury, with stunning ensuite bathrooms.
Holiday in style at Andreas Oasis
This home is high on our list for a reason, with its high ceilings and unique designs. The style extends outwards to the pool, whose fountain rushes over rocks and has a slide harmoniously built into it – the little ones will be obsessed. In the home, the master bath tub is interestingly built into the marble floor, with windows all around it pointing to the tropical vegetation and mountains of Palm Springs. The mansion is impressive, and sleeps up to 18 people, so simply had to make our list of 7 homes with swimming pools in Palm Springs that families will love.
Book a luxurious stay at Palm Springs Picasso
As its name might suggest, a lot of thought has gone into the design of the interior at Palm Springs Picasso. All manner of intriguing works of art hang from the ceilings and walls, with an eclectic range of tasteful furniture and fixtures. Behind every hidden alley and turned corner lies an artistic surprise and a splash of colour. Head into the cacti-filled garden for the all-important swimming pool and glowing fire pit.
Treat the kids to a stay at Sand & Green
A quaint pool of swirling, winding proportions sits outside this four-bedroom villa. The temperatures can really rise in Palm Springs' summer days, so the hosts have taken the measure of inserting an umbrella stand into one side of the pool, so your kids can splash around in the water without a chance of sunburn. A side-car circle of a pool makes for a shallow hub for any toddlers, while a grill and a golf course are among the highlights.
Discover the Palm Desert at A’Reve
The picturesque views of the San Jacinto mountains surrounding Palm Springs are among the highlights of this impressive villa. It stands in the peace and seclusion of the Palm Desert, containing all manner of artistic treasures to add to the sense of tranquillity. Sit by the fire in the chic living room in the evening, and when afternoon comes, splash in the pool with your kids.
Enjoy a stress free stay at Outback Sunrise
A cascade-like fountain appears to shoot out from the hedges into the swimming pool in the garden of Outback Sunrise. It even has an integrated hot tub that’ll keep you warm into the night. Play golf with your family and tuck into a meal in the shade of the pergola. In the evening, sit by the fire inside and relax in front of the TV.
Rest your legs in the sauna at Palm Trees in Paradise
The final home on our list of 7 homes with swimming pools in Palm Springs that families will love is Palm Trees in Paradise. The swimming pool and its separate triangular paddling area make for geometric partners in this eye-catching home. Get your family ready to watch a movie in the cinema room and rest your legs in the private sauna. Head to some of the golf courses in the area to practice your swing, or sit by the fire outside after a day of swimming in the long, rectangular pool.
