Hinshaw Hideaway

Boho-chic Abode with Meticulous Decor and Heated Pool

A bohemian-modern retreat steps from downtown Palm Springs, Hinshaw Hideaway is the former winter escape of JCW and Wilberta Hinshaw, developers of the historic La Plaza shopping center. Built in 1934, the sprawling 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath ranch sits on landscaped grounds in the Movie Colony district, a 10-minute stroll from restaurants, galleries, and shopping.

The home opens onto a cozy sitting area with a velvet ottoman facing a decorative fireplace, a unique church pew bench, and a vintage church stained-glass window. A colorful stained-glass chandelier hangs above a 6-seat dining table. Just off this room is a fully-equipped kitchen designed for entertaining, featuring stainless steel appliances, marble countertops and a wine fridge.

Beyond the living area is a light-filled living room, which opens onto the expansive outdoor patio through sliding doors. On one end, a full-length leather sofa and two stylish hanging chairs frame a 65” Smart TV. On the other, two chairs, accented by fur, face a chic, glass-topped wet bar crafted with a natural finish and a live edge. A turntable, linked to Sonos, sets the scene for entertaining.

For the real entertainment, just step outside. A resort-style, heated swimming pool lies at the center of an impressive, South-facing backyard lined with palm trees and surrounded by a lush, 10-foot privacy wall. Soak in the sun in one of the cozy loungers along one end of the pool, or catch up with friends around on cushioned sitting area around a stone fireplace along the other. In a separate corner, a spacious hot tub with built-in cushions and 18 jets faces a second stone outdoor fireplace and outdoor bar area.

Three more sitting areas surround the pool to provide ample room for entertaining, including a 6-seat dining table. With a BBQ grill and 6-seat outdoor dining table, you can enjoy dinner al fresco.

Between three spacious bedrooms, Hinshaw Hideaway comfortably sleeps up to 6 guests. Each bedroom, located in a separate corner of the home for privacy, features a Casper mattress and pillows and Lux Linen sheets and duvets. The primary suite, located off the East end of the living area was designed with a loft feel and is styled in rustic, mid-century decor with wood-paneled walls, a king-sized bed and a 50th anniversary Herman Miller Eames rosewood and leather lounge chair and ottoman. This room also has a 55” flat-screen TV and a luxurious bathroom with marble walls and a soaker tub. The suite opens onto the backyard through floor to ceiling pocket doors, steps from a cushioned sitting area shaded by umbrellas.

The second primary bedroom located on the Northwest corner, is whimsically styled with a four-post, king-sized bed, an early California Monterey sofa and a decorative vintage TV. This room also has an en-suite bath and walk-in shower. A private door leads to the backyard.

The third bedroom, located in the Southwest corner, is styled in eclectic decor with a stained glass door, a Herman Miller Eames rocking chair and unique built-in desk. This bedroom has a queen-sized bed and en-suite bath with a walk-in shower.

For added convenience, this home features a private washer and dryer, additional half-bath, and Aesop products. A spacious driveway with charging station provides room for up to 3 cars, giving you the freedom to explore the surrounding desert.

This home permits weddings and other events. Please reach out to us directly to discuss hosting an event at this property.

Sandi was great

The house was well-appointed and very closely resembled the pictures. There was a little room for improvement - the outdoor cushions looked a little tired- and the indoor sitting areas could have used more comfortable chairs. Other than that, we loved the outdoor space, location, convenience to town, walkable neighborhood, interaction with NR agents, and the house. It was the perfect launching place for our Palm Springs adventures!!!

Everything about the experience was top notch. The check in was smooth and easy. The house and facilities were wonderful. The pool and spa were AMAZING! We had an absolute blast and will be returning again soon.

We love Hinshaw Hideaway! It’s our home away from home and we are lucky to be repeat guests. Big thanks to Brian for all his help! Can’t wait to see y'all soon.

We loved the house and would recommend this to others, the road was a bit noisy and that should be noted but the quality of the home was outstanding and we had everything we needed to be comfortable and enjoy our time.

We’ve stayed at a lot of homes and I was hesitant about not letting ourselves in. It worked out great and the personal touch was actually kind of nice. If my home were used by others, I’d want this type of service.

NR always makes us feel welcome. They understand we have a special needs child and go out of their way to accommodate us.

Everyone at Natural Retreats Palm Springs goes above and beyond for us to make us feel welcome. Having a child with special needs comes with a lot of challenges and Natural Retreats is always very accommodating and helpful, giving us a family vacation that is much needed. We love coming back to Hinshaw Hideaway. Our home away from home.

The property we rented through Natural Retreats greatly exceeded our expectations. The location was phenomenal in the Movie Colony neighborhood which is a 5 minute walk from great restaurants and cafes. The house was outfitted with the best bedding, furnishings, appliances, and cookware available. Also the outdoor spaces were laid out brilliantly and the pool and jacuzzi were a perfect temperature and very clean. We couldn’t have had a better time!!

Hinshaw Hideaway is a beautiful getaway home! Clean and well maintained. The backyard/pool/Jacuzzi is the highlight of this home. My family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation!

We loved our stay, everything was so nicely thought out. And our property managers were wonderful. They were considerate of my son special needs and gave us a little extra time to get things done. They also gave us privacy and the house was well stocked with everything that we needed. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for keeping us a few days of peace.

Your own Personal Resort

This house is AMAZING!! You feel like you are at your own private resort. The design is beautiful, chic and incredibly well done. We had 3 couple and then a few friends join us by the pool for the day. It's the perfect place for a family or a few couples or friends to get away for a few days. Although I would be happy to stay as long as possible. FIVE Stars all the way!

Absolutely Stunning Home

We had the most wonderful time in Palm Springs staying at this beautiful home. The backyard is incredible. So much space, multiple fireplaces, perfect pool and hot tub. The inside of the home is incredible as well! The house is stocked with every thing you could need - pool towels, sunscreen, kitchen items, amazing shampoo and lotion products. Beds were very comfortable, linens so soft. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this home. Quiet neighborhood, felt very safe and it was an easy walk to many shops and restaurants. We had an amazing and relaxing weekend and would 100% love to return here some time. Highly recommend for anyone headed to palm springs looking for a place to stay!

This house is absolute perfection!! They've thought of everything to make your stay beautiful, comfortable, and special, from top notch, friendly service, to the most stunning decor, to buttery soft bed linens and fluffy towels, a stocked wet bar, and the best backyard in Palm Springs! It's even better than the pictures!! My husband and I stayed for a week over fourth of July. We LOVED cooking in the beautiful, custom, gourmet kitchen that overlooks a stunning, stone courtyard filled with aged olive trees. Where else can you find that in Palm Springs??!! Every single bedroom is beautifully done and very roomy, especially the super stylish master bedroom that has a big, snuggly King bed and the sexiest double-headed, open shower you've ever seen! We were obsessed with the overall boho-chic aesthetic of the house, including the incredible stone floor that runs throughout, all of their rugs and throws, and the fabulous striped bean bag chairs outside! We even got them for our house in LA! When I had to get some work done, I was thrilled to discover that the WiFi reached effortlessly all over the house and the backyard. The house and the property are kept impeccably clean and well manicured. And, very importantly, the house was always cool, which is hard to accomplish during the hot month of July when temps were well over 100 degrees. It just didn't feel like your typical Palm Springs rental. Now let's talk about this insane backyard... The pool is GIANT and designed so well with deep, plush cushions along the side where you can hang out, as well as a shelf in the shallow end with an umbrella, where I spent all my time reading while chilling in the water. But there's a ton of places all over the yard for sitting, laying out, eating in the sunshine or under the stars, and even playing games! My husband and I were shocked by how big the hot tub was! It's crazy cool -- like a football field for a jacuzzi! We had SO MUCH FUN outside all day and night. Plus, we brought our 2 little pups, and they loved cruising around the yard too - it's so big and totally secure, there were lots of places for them to explore and opportunities for shade. You really can't beat the location. It's very private and in a beautiful, high-end neighborhood. It's gated, so it feels very safe. And it's within walking distance to a great coffee/smoothie shop and minutes away from lots of amazing restaurants and grocery stores. We were just so blown away by this property. I just can't say enough good things about it and our experience here. You will love every minute. We are going to stay here again and again. Cant wait to go back!!

Amazing home in the perfect location!

We stayed at this home in June and had an incredible experience. The home itself was expertly designed and furnished, no detail missed! We were able to walk to the downtown strip of Palm Springs and enjoy the restaurants and shops as well. Looking forward to another great trip very soon

Complete privacy with great location.

We spent a long weekend in July enjoying the Palm Springs heat. The pool and spa were perfect to cool down. Casino, restaurants and upscale shops all within walking distance. House was a beautiful bohemian retreat.
