Palm Springs was once a secluded, laid-back haven for celebrities to escape to for a vacation away from the paparazzi. But eventually, the breathtaking scenery of the California desert and spectacular mountain vistas drew tourists here. With them, the streets of Palm Springs, California, are filled with a plethora of great Airbnb hotels: from brightly coloured mid-century rooms to luxurious estates with pools.

No matter what your plans are for Palm Springs, whether it's attending the grand Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival or secluding yourself with a cocktail by the pool, the best Airbnb will ensure you have an epic vacation.

Visiting this city is always a good choice for travelling, and every season has its perks. The period from January to April is good for sunny days by the pool and hiking. And if you plan your trip for September through December, you can enjoy the pleasant autumn weather and the absence of crowds of tourists. But don't procrastinate: demand for the best Airbnb hotels in Palm Springs is strong most of the year.

For 2 guests max

Most of the best Airbnb listings in Palm Springs boast a pool, and this private home is no exception. The heated pool and spa is its lively centerpiece: it feels like the house is purposely built around the water so guests can spend days on lounge chairs with a cocktail in hand and splash around until they're exhausted. You'll also find an equally relaxing environment inside the house. Behind the bright yellow door leading off the terrace is a cosy bedroom with a queen-size bed with bamboo pillows and memory foam mattress, a full kitchen with all the necessary appliances, a living room with modern furniture and workspace, and a bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The house is equipped with modern technology from Nest thermostat to Alexa. The area near it is gated, with a remote-controlled gate, a place for grilling and parking for a car.

2. Deserted estate where Frank Sinatra lived

Airbnb listing name: Twin Palms Sinatra Estate

For 8 guests max

Palm Springs is a favourite California vacation spot for many famous people, and its Airbnb hotels have hosted a variety of celebrities. Frank Sinatra was also among them: together with his wife Ava Gardner, they threw lavish parties in this huge house until 1957.

The modern 4-bedroom hotel was commissioned by Sinatra and built by legendary architect E. Stuart Williamson. Its interior exudes classic Old Hollywood charm, and music lovers and design-savvy travellers will find plenty to admire, such as the singer's original recording studio and piano-shaped pool.

The great room features a piano, and the entire home is equipped with new electronics and modern amenities. The home includes a gourmet kitchen and dining area overlooking the terrace. All bedrooms are individualized. The master bedroom has sliding doors to the terrace, a king-size bed and a stone fireplace. The second bedroom also has a fireplace and access to the terrace. The third is decorated with memorabilia and the fourth resembles a tropical oasis overlooking the garden. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms. There is a heated swimming pool and sun loungers outside the house.

3. A beautiful pink bungalow with plenty of places for photos

4. Airbnb in Palm Springs with a tropical-bohemian interior

Airbnb listing name: Chez Alain & Michou

For 8 guests max

Many luxury Airbnb properties in Palm Springs boast unique designs, and this 4-bedroom villa is an example of that. It's designed following the principle of open space: disappearing walls blur the boundaries between indoors and out. The living room leads directly onto the pool terrace, so you can, for example, watch your favourite movie while sunbathing on a lounge chair, or walk further into the open-air dining area. During the day, you can take a dip in the pool or lounge in the Jacuzzi, play bocce ball or sit with a drink on the wooden terrace, and spend cool desert evenings by the outdoor fireplace with drinks and snacks.

There are 4 bedrooms, the master suite being the most spacious among them, with a king-size bed and an open-plan bathroom. Each bedroom is equipped with soft linens and robes, plaids and smart TVs.

5. Boho-chic retreat

The grounds feature a private landscaped garden, a saltwater pool with a whirlpool spa, umbrellas and lounge chairs, a dining area and a built-in outdoor grill, as well as a garage, parking for 3 cars and free charging for electric cars.

The amazing retreat, located on a 5-acre hill, will provide you with an exciting way to appreciate the full beauty of the desert. Among the most famous Airbnb hotels in Palm Springs, it stands out for its amazing architecture: with its geodesic dome and full-wall windows, you'll be constantly surrounded by desert scenery as if you were living in nature. The surroundings are so spectacular that the decision to take the most "transparent" approach to creating the house is impossible to disapprove of: you will see windmills, Joshua Tree National Park, the Coachella Valley and a peaceful view of the desert from almost every window.

The main house has three bedrooms, a large kitchen with indoor and outdoor dining areas, a small office and 2.5 bathrooms, and one of the main attractions of the property, a living room with a 360° panoramic dome to watch sunsets over the mountains and admire the starry skies and twinkling windmills in the evenings. This is one of the best Airbnb for a romantic vacation in Palm Springs. The white dome with panoramic views is separate from the main house and has a 4th bedroom with a king bed. This is the most private accommodation option but without its own bathroom.
