Your days at My Palm Springs Friend start with fresh coffee/tea and continental breakfast (either American-style: home baked muffins; French-style: croissants, butter and marmalade; or German-style: Brötchen, meats and cheeses). Enjoy fresh citrus from the yard (and pick your own to take home with you!). Afterwards, consider a stroll through the greenspace to the crystal clear pool. Enjoy the many fruit trees and the fragrant rose garden along the way. Maybe play a game of tennis or just relax on one of the three private patios (the west patio is private enough for clothing optional sunbathing). At the end of your day, come home and relax in the jacuzzi or enjoy a professional massage from your host. Local cable television and WiFi internet at no charge.
Smoke Tree Commons is just across the road, where you'll find numerous restaurants, two grocery stores, a pharmacy, post office, several banks and a gas station. The area is well-served by air conditioned and WiFi enabled Sunline Transit bus #111 running from Coachella to North Palm Springs, as well as the popular (and free!) Buzz Bus trolley running every 15 minutes from my location, through downtown, to the north end of Palm Springs. The bus stop is right on the corner a few steps from my door.
Each Thursday evening throughout the year, enjoy a visit to the arts, crafts and food booths at the Downtown Village Fest.
