"That end-to-end service is a super power!"
Nicole Brill impressed me with her mixture of design talent, client service, and knowledge of the Palm Springs aesthetic. I trust her implicitly on and off the job. She also comes with a full team from back office support to boots on the ground installation. Nicole truly brings it from concept to completion, and that end-to-end service is a super power!

"Transform your home ... and put more money in your pocket."
Many people believe that hiring an interior designer is an expense that is not needed, that they can find their own answers online, etc. When it comes to an income-generating short-term rental, please do not make that mistake. Nicole Brill will absolutely transform your home more than your imagination could ever think of and put more money in your pocket. She thinks of every detail and each detail completes the project making it unique to the home itself, and complementing its surrounding. She can design everything from the mid-century modern pool home to the luxury rustic mountain cabin. She takes care of the process from A to Z and I couldn’t be happier with her services and the beautiful home she designed.

"Nicole creates homes that are dreamlands."
What I love about Nicole’s sense of style is that it is personal, eclectic, inquisitive, comfortable, durable, functional, and posh. But more than anything, I love her sense of imagination. She creates homes that are dreamlands.

Guest Stay Reviews
Thoughtfully curated amenities (there was nothing we needed and didn’t have, right down to blankets to sit outside on chillier nights), and comfortable beds. The decor is quintessential Palm Springs – you can tell a lot of thought went into planning this house. Would come back any time!
This beautiful home was exactly as pictured. My family and I enjoyed a peaceful stay. We plan on returning in the future.
We rented the House of the Golden Turtle for a long weekend and had a blast. All four of us had our own beds, the kitchen and living area were generous and comfortable, and the outdoor space with the heated pool, lounge chairs, and long table were perfect for a combination of working and playing. Thanks for a great trip!
Excellent property. Perfect for 4-6 people. Well furnished house with plenty of amenities. Air conditioning worked great. The pool and hot tub were fantastic and the outdoor space had tons of lounge furniture, BBQ, fire pit and outdoor dining seating. Plus you could move the umbrellas around the deck as needed. Plenty of sunlight throughout the day and perfect space to relax. The location of the home is phenomenal. It is within 0.5 mile of the core of downtown Palm Springs. There is excellent hiking within a quarter of a mile at Tahquitz Canyon or South Lykken Trail. I absolutely would stay here again and would highly recommend for families or couples of 4-6 people.
What a fantastic find. The house was exactly like in pictures; super clean and looked freshly remodeled. In fact, in this price range it was by far the best property we’ve stayed at in PS. Kitchen had absolutely everything you could think of (and more); there are three smart TVs, big floaties for the pool etc. David – the local manager was easy to communicate with as well.
In fact, the entire rental process was the quickest and least cumbersome from all our trips to PS so far, while renting through Verbo or their competitor. Could not be easier.
Finally, we never stayed on the east side of town, but loved it. Very nice neighborhood, very quite street, great mountains views and more than usual trees made for a really nice, vacation ambience. Both Ralphs 3 minutes away, downtown 3 minutes away. Highly recommended.
[A]mazing place, loved everything about it from decor to rooms to amenities!
Amazing stay! Me and my friends stayed for Coachella weekend and couldn’t have asked for a better villa! Defi[nite]ly recommend and would love to come back some day!
This was an excellent place to stay. The decor and furnishings are wonderful! The pool and hot tub were great. The backyard view of the mountains is just like the beautiful photos. This house was stocked and had everything we needed! We didn’t have to bug the host for anything. Beds are super comfy. Everything worked as it should. Great location close to town. Highly highly highly recommend this place! We will return 100%.
Cynthia’s home is such a special place💜.. We had a wonderful family vacation staying there and made lots of great memories… 🌵🌻. From waking up to the beautiful mountain views to riding bikes to town for coffee and dinner to just relaxing by the pool. It was all perfect!! THANK YOU CYNTHIA. We will be back:). 🌵
We had a wonderful vacation at this property and loved everything about it. The home was very well appointed and stocked and had everything we needed. We loved having a heated pool and spa in our backyard as well. Location was close to everything and we enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. Thank you for such a fantastic stay!
