Step back in time while firmly rooted in the present.
Desert Hills is a bridge between two worlds: a place where the unmistakable flair of mid-century modernism meets the contemporary luxuries of today. If walls could talk, these would hum the tunes of the 1950s, whispering the tales of visionary designer Herbert Burns and the aspirations of Alan and Joanne Petty, the original owners of this Palm Springs jewel.
Discover the essence of old Palm Springs.
Desert Hills, with its panoramic vistas of the imposing San Jacinto Mountains, captures the essence of Palm Springs like no other. While the world around this boutique has transformed over the decades, Desert Hills has remained a beacon of old Palm Springs charm, maintaining its classic mid-century modern design with an unyielding commitment to architectural preservation. Combine this with a long-term vision for new upgrades and amenities to complement the long-established history of the property, and you have a unique vintage experience that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
