Below are a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Q. What time is Check-In?
A. Standard Check-In time is 4:00 pm. If you need to Check-In earlier, we may be able to accommodate you, depending on whether a previous guest has just checked out. It takes about 6 hours to get the house ready for a new guest.
Q. What time is Check-Out?
A. Standard Check-Out time is 10:00 am. If you need a later Check-Out, we may be able to accommodate you, depending on whether we have a new guest coming in later that day. It takes about 6 hours to get the house ready for a new guest.
Q. Can I bring pets?
A. We love pets, but not all pets are well-behaved. In the interest of maintaining the pristine quality of our house and furnishings, we have decided not to allow pets, at least for the near future.
Q. Is there a maximum number of people?
A. With 3 bedrooms (2 King beds and 1 Queen), and one Queen sleeper sofa, we can comfortably house 8 people overnight. Zoning laws prohibit larger numbers of guests from staying in this house.
Q. Is there a charge to heat the pool? The spa?
A. There is no fee to heat the spa. We just ask that you turn it off when not in use to conserve energy. The fee to heat the pool in the colder months is $200/week. It will not be necessary to heat the pool in the warmer months, probably from May to September.
Q. Do I need to have a car if I'm staying at this house? Is there parking available?
A. You probably will need a car to get around Palm Springs, as many of the most interesting sights are a few miles apart, and so that you can easily reach various shops and stores. But many things are within 5 to 15 minutes walking distance - coffee shops, restaurants, the shops of Palm Canyon Drive, the street fair (Thursday nights), so you can leave the car and strike out on foot if you desire. As for parking, we have a two-car garage, and room for 2 or 3 cars to park in the driveway as well.
Q. Can events be held at Casa de Colores?
A. Palm Springs city regulations stipulate that the standard guest limit not exceed 12 people during the day, and 8 people at night. Within that context, if you wish to have dinner parties, pool parties, or other gatherings at Casa de Colores, you simply need to keep outside noise to an acceptable level. If you wish to have a larger gathering, call or email us and we can discuss your particular situation.
