Kids In Palm Springs: What To Do In A Weekend

Where We Stayed In Palm Springs

On a previous work trip to Palm Springs, Sherry and I stayed at the Saguaro Hotel. It was fun and iconic-looking (see below), but when we travel with our kids (and the dog!) we love and Airbnb or VRBO because we get access to an entire home. It’s always nice to spread out a bit more, have access to our own kitchen, have a pool all to ourselves, etc. So this time we rented an Airbnb located just north of downtown Palm Springs.

The Airbnb that we rented ended up being one of the highlights of the trip. We splurged because it was just a few nights and it was Sherry’s birthday while we were there. By splurge we mean each of the 3 nights we stayed was around $450 – but hotels for that same peak spring break week weren’t much less (some were more!). We also used credit card points towards the fight to offset our vacation expenses (we have a Capital One Venture Card).

Quick tip: Our Airbnb can swell to $1200 per night (!!!), but we snagged a deal because they were trying to fill a few empty days between two other bookings. So looking for weekdays between two booked weekends (we stayed Tues, Wed, and Thurs night) might save you money because there’s often less demand for those days, which means they get marked down.

As for the house itself, we’d say the views and the walls of glass and the pool and spa were the highlights. It was also very clean and had a cool modern and airy feel. Even though we have a pool at home, the kids had so much fun in this one that we even canceled some other sightseeing plans we originally had to spend more time swimming and lounging as a family. It’s always nice when a vacation actually ends up being relaxing! Plus, we just couldn’t get over the view of the snow-capped mountains.

If the Airbnb we rented isn’t available (or you don’t need something dog-friendly) here are some other options to consider (all of which swing pretty wildly in price depending on the dates):
