Amazing vacation Guest: Jane Miller (Westlake, Ohio, USA)
A beautiful home helped complete a fabulous vacation. Arnold the owner was a gracious host, available at any time to answer questions. We stayed for a week, two families: 4 adults, 5 kids (7-13yrs). Kids could never be bored. If they weren't swimming, playing basketball, volleyball or golf, they had foosball, basketball and ping-pong in the garage! The kids thought it was the best vacation EVER! Lots of things to do locally from shopping, to Joshua tree, to the tram buy our best time was hanging at the house. As an avid cook, Arnold was looking for ways to improve the kitchen but its better appointed than most homes people live in! The house was spotless when we arrived. Everyone is asking for our visit to be a tradition. We couldn't be more pleased. The home far surpassed our expectations. The home is a little off the beaten path, but not too far from downtown. It was perfect for us. A million thanks to Arnold, a truly nice guy with a spectacular home. We highly recommend it for families, couples, singles, or parties. We would love to return to the Galvan estate!


The Perfect Getaway Guest: sbgal (Santa Barbara, CA)
Our visit was absolutely incredible. We went for my husband's 30th birthday celebration and I could not have asked for a better home/location. The house is immaculate and decorated with a great sheik new style. It is the ultimate luxury. The 4 bedrooms, inside bar, large kitchen and fireplaces make it amazing enough to stay inside but once you open the automatic curtains you see a whole new oasis that awaits you. A large extravagant pool with a swim up bar, multiple waterfalls and hot tub glow at night with translucent lighting. To the left you have a three hole putting green, behind the pool is a sand volleyball court where we enjoyed many volleyball games through the night. There is also a huge basketball court by the large outside bar. This house is beyond perfect for entertaining. You would never have a dull moment and you just feel so relaxed in all the comfort and luxury the home and back yard provide. I have stayed in many other homes in La Quinta and Palm Desert areas and this blows them all out of the water. Stop looking and rent this home. You will not regret it!


Perfect Desert Oasis Wedding Weekend! Guest: Nathalie (Orange County)
We got married at the Galvan Estate just last weekend! I couldn't have asked for a better experience! This home is an oasis in the desert. Our wedding day was absolutely amazing! I live in Orange County and working with the owner Arnold through email and phone was a breeze. He offered me local native knowledge and recommended vendors for my event. He allowed me to meet vendors on the property prior to the wedding to plan and coordinate logistics for my big day. We had our rehearsal dinner on the property Friday night and the wedding on Saturday. The property and the grounds are immaculate to host a backyard wedding as it is spacious yet still feels private and secluded. The yard features luscious greenery with palm trees, a large bar, volleyball court, basketball court, pool with waterfall spillways, 2 fire pits, outdoor sound system, putting green and more. At night, the palm trees are already pre-lit with rope lights and spotlights perfect for gatherings. We had our ceremony in the volleyball court and the reception in the basketball court. Our friends and family raved about how beautiful our wedding was and how "perfect" it was. It was the best wedding I could have ever imagined! I am so happy with our choice to get married at the Galvan Estate, and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone! Sincerely, Nathalie & Ryan Moore


Best Pool in Palm Springs Guest: Carol (Incline Village/NV)
What a wonderful property!! My family of five (children ages 11, 9 & 6) and one set of grandparents fit very nicely into this immaculate, well decorated, almost new home. The kitchen had top of the line appliances (although we didn't do much cooking on our trip). The best thing about the property was the outdoors. The saltwater pool out back was nicer than you'd find in most small hotels. With the 115 degree heat outdoors, it was invaluable. I can imagine how nice it would be with the fire pits on at night in the winter. The location was great as well, just a short drive from downtown Palm Springs. If we were ever to return to Palm Springs, this would be the house we'd rent! The owner was very professional and helpful during the whole rental process.

Wonderful week stay and WEDDING! Guest: Carey (Belmont, MA)
My husband and I were married here in October and stayed for a week at the estate as well. We had an amazing week- and a wonderful wedding here. I was so happy that we found this place - it was perfect! We live on the east coast so because a lot of our wedding party was from the east coast we wanted to stay somewhere where we could also invite our wedding party to stay for the week. Our stay there was fantastic- they house is beautiful. Everything there is very sleek- clean- very impressive. Our wedding party loved staying there. The basketball court was a big hit and the pool and fire pits are incredible. The master bathroom is gorgeous. We never wanted to leave. If anything came up Arnold was there to make it work. He is so friendly and made our stay there very comfortable. The WEDDING- was beautiful. We didn't want to get married in a hotel- we wanted to get married in a place where we could choose the food, and the vendors and the pacing of the event. Our wedding felt very personal to us- not like us trying to fit into someone else's idea of how a wedding should be. We had about 120 guests and there was plenty of space for them, the photo booth, the buffet, the ceremony space and the dining area and a kids play area. Our guests loved the location as much as we did. The natural beauty of the home and the area made it so easy- we hardly had to put any work into decorating the home ourselves. Arnold has created an incredible event space- I felt like our wedding was gorgeous and a great representation of who we are. The outdoor bar is made for hosting events- the space is perfect and the amenities were very easy to work with. Arnold gave us wonderful recommendations to New Leaf Catering and party rental and valet companies. All of the vendors he recommended did a great job. I would absolutely stay there again- and I think it is a wonderful home for any event.


INCREDIBLE Weekend Getaway for Dudes Guest: Adam (Los Angeles)
Me and a bunch of buddies wanted to get out of LA for the weekend, and this estate provided the perfect stay. We arrived on a Thursday night, and didn't even leave the house until Sunday afternoon. Arnold was incredibly helpful, and the house was awesome. We had such a great time that we're already talking about making it an annual trip. This place was everything we hoped it would be. The sound system is rigged for easy use across the entire house and grounds, the kitchen, bar and BBQ are great for large groups, and everything is designed for ease of use. The photos speak for themselves, but they really don't even do the place justice. It's the perfect bachelor pad.

FABULOUS SCOTT WEDDING!!! Guest: Vanessa (Yucaipa, CA)
If you are looking for a "NON-TRADITIONAL" wedding venue than the Galvan Estate is your place. From the moment you walk through the fabulous double glass doors into the spacious, beautifully appointed home, you know you made the right decision. The backyard was expansive and perfect for our 150 guests; we used every inch of that backyard. We rented white leather furniture for our bar/dance seating area and utilized carnival lighting on the basketball court for dancing/seating as well. We were also able to have cocktail tables with bar stools around the pool too! The volleyball court was perfect for our ceremony seating and the pergola fit perfect up above on the small patio area. I think the best part for me was having my 8 bridesmaid spend the night before the wedding and be able to get ready on site without any stress. I am sure there is no other venue around that could have accommodated my wedding dream. Thanks Arnold! We are already planning a family trip this summer. See you soon.


Unbelievable home and incredible hospitality! Guest: Vikki (New York, NY)
From the first time we inquired about this rental property to the day we checked out, we couldn't have had better service. Everyone was so friendly, kind, and helpful. They were always a quick email or phone call away and even when we were at the house, it was made very clear that we could contact them at any time with questions, problems, concerns, etc. It was truly amazing service. And the house...the house is even better then the pictures. It was HUGE and beautiful inside, but the backyard was really the best part. I have NEVER seen a backyard like this in my life. Everyone was just stunned. It was absolutely the best house I have ever stayed at. I would recommend this property to everyone I know and am planning on returning soon!!

Amazing Wedding Location! Guest: Veronica (Manhattan Beach, California)
We just came back from our wedding at the Galvan Estate. We had an amazing time, and the property was perfectly suited to our needs. The owners are more than accommodating, and went over and above to make sure our vendors could access the property in preparation for the day. They really went over and above our expectations. The venue itself was perfect for our wedding. Many of our guests commented that the estate made the wedding. The vendors had plenty of space, and the layout and flow was great. The backdrop views during the ceremony were gorgeous, and the reception was perfect, due largely to the open plan of the backyard, and of course, the great bar! Our families stayed there, and everyone had plenty of space, and was so comfortable. The day after the wedding we invited everyone back to barbeque and enjoy the property. We played volleyball, basketball, ping pong, and golf all day and all night - it was a great "day after" party. We would highly recommend the Galvan Estate for a wedding, it was absolutely perfect. Regards, Steve and Veronica


Amazing Vacation for the Whole Family. Guest: John (Newport Coast, Ca)
My parents, my sister and her family and my family have been vacationing in Palm Springs for several years now... None of the other houses we've rented compares to this one for the amenities, attention to details and value. The yard is truly amazing. The sunken volleyball court is inspired! When we arrived we were greeted with a fruit plate, a bottle of wine and tour of the property complete with detailed instruction on all it's technical marvels. The house, literally, has everything. Everyone had a wonderful time and we would heartily recommend this home to our friends and relatives (especially if they're going to invite us out for a swim).
