I had to go to Palm Springs for the film fest, and found A Place In The Sun through the film fest's website. I was pleasantly surprised by the space...felt like I had traveled back into the good ol' days of the 1960s. The bungalows were all clean and quiet, with private patios in the back of each one. And...

It was so nice to be back at A Place in the Sun for a little getaway. It's always very relaxing, no matter how long you're there for. We always stay in the large studio which is perfect for my husband and I. Ron and Norma were there with their two new puppies (Hi, Onyx & Annie!!) and brought them...

We've just come back from our third time at APITS and as usual it was great. We didn't take our dogs, but for pet owners it's a wonderful place. They know the doggie day care places, pet sitters in town, and you can leave your cell number and they'll check on the "kids." For the humans, there's the luxury of...

We spent 3 days at A Place in the Sun this month and as usual, we had a relaxing and fun time. With all the comforts of home we lounged by the pool, read a book under a palm tree with the majestic view of the mountains, danced at our favorite spot downtown, and were so happy to have the...

Carol and I escape to "A Place in the Sun" a couple times a year. We bring Rags, the shih-tzu, and have no worries or cares. Norma, Ron and Joe are gracious hosts, making sure we have goodies, movies, towels and tips on eateries (try El Mirasol for mexican food). The bungalows epitomize "retro living" from days past with the...

Because our usual haunt for the last ten years doesn't take pets, they recommended A Place in the Sun to us for travel with our feline companion. He let us know how traumatized he was by promptly holding down the floor over the cool tiles whenever possible, and enjoying the private little back yard. We walked him on his leash...

My boyfriend and I wanted a relaxing getaway to Palm Springs and we couldnt have picked a more perfect place! We were upgraded to a one bedroom bungalow when we arrived- thank you Joe!

Seven members of our family stayed in the large bungalow which accommodated us all very well. We observed so many "extras" available to us in "our" bungalow and enjoyed every minute of our time there. The grounds were immaculate and beautiful. The swimming pool, putting green and Jacuzzi, were appreciated by all of us, including our 6-year-old granddaughter. We can't...
