Why Palm Springs?
As I get older, I become more and more a creature of comfort, with that said all I need for a weekend escape is some serenity and coziness. When I think of a relaxing weekend getaway, Palm Springs is constantly my number 1 pick! Earlier this year my husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary in Palm Springs at a hotel which was amazing. This time around we wanted to experience Palm Springs in a whole new way by renting a home from ACME House Co with a couple of friends. It was the best thing we could have done!

Our Home For The Weekend
The first thing we saw as we began exploring our home for the weekend was the backyard and it was even more breathtaking than I could have imagined. The pool was like a beautiful mirage in the sweltering Palm Springs heat and it made me want to jump right in!! I was ecstatic to see 4 lounge chairs as I knew all 4 of us would be religiously working on our tans all weekend long. From the lounge chairs, you had a view of the mountainside which looked just like a postcard (too beautiful to be real). The backyard was so luscious and green with a beautifully manicured lawn and an abundance of fruit trees for your picking pleasure. I was instantly in love with the house and I hadn't even stepped one foot inside! In Palm Springs all that matters is the backyard and this backyard delivered everything we had hoped for and more!
Under The Stars
When I saw the fire pit my stomach and mind jumped for joy. I knew this would be our nightly hangout spot. Even the possibility of making s'mores made my 9 year old self giddy with excitement. We ended up enjoying a glass of wine and sharing some laughs under the stars. It was the best way to wind down each night!
I couldn't wait to jump in the pool and that's exactly what my friends and I did! It felt so cool and refreshing especial with a yummy drink in hand. The shallow end of the pool had a place to mount an umbrella and we took full advantage to create an escape from the smoldering sun. It quickly became our favorite spot to lounge around in!! Those are one of the many amenities you will come to appreciate of this house as we did!!
As my husband and I packed for our weekend trip, we were worried the house wouldn't have any of the necessities we are accustomed too in our own home, but our worries were unsubstantiated. The living room was spacious and comfortable with cable TV for the boys who were able to watch a few soccer games. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to prepare and enjoy a home cooked meal. The two bedrooms came with two sets of beach towels for the pool and a ton of closet space for over packers like me!! The home was exceptionally clean and extremely comfortable! What else can one ask for when renting a home?!?!?
At Home Dining
My girlfriend and I are two lucky girls who are married to two amazing cooks!! It's not either of their day jobs but they are passionate and creative in the kitchen so it made the decision that much easier to stay in and grub! The home had everything the two chefs needed and the BBQ was put to good use to grill some yummy steaks. We ate like kings in the comfort of our own home. I definitely recommend staying in at least one night
I shared tons of laughs, made new memories with my husband and friends, ate so good my tummy grew, and laid out by the pool until I turned crispy brown. All in all it was an amazing and relaxing weekend! Palm Springs you did me so good I can't wait until we meet again!!!!
