Palm Springs is an oasis for outdoor adventure, arts and culture, gaming and entertainment. The city’s storied Hollywood legacy, Native American heritage and stunning collection of mid-century modern architecture reflect why Palm Springs is truly like no place else.
For many gay travelers to Warm Sands Villas, just breathing the air and staring at the stunning mountains are enough to remove the tension from their busy lives. Some will sit by the pool sipping Margaritas to unwind.

Thank you for considering Warm Sands Villas for your getaway to Palm Springs California. In order to assure the safety and comfort of all our guests and maintain a business structure that assures orderliness and success, we have established a set of policies based on industry standards and many years of experience in hotel operation. Adherence to these policies are just one of the many reasons Warm Sands Villas has such a large and every-growing following of regularly-returning guests from California, the nation, and countries around the world. Some of our policies are quite different from a typical resort hotel. We ask you take a moment to read over these policies so that you can make an informed decision about whether Warm Sands Villas will be as good a match for you as we are for the majority of our guests.
Warm Sands Villas is a Restricted-Access Compound
All of the rooms at Warm Sands Villas have one bed and are designed to accommodate one or two guests only, regardless of age. There are no facilities or amenities that would be appropriate for children infants. We are a closed compound, with all rooms, grounds, pool, food, and services reserved for the enjoyment and use of registered guests only. No parties, gatherings, or outside visitors are allowed.

Reservations for five or less room-nights must be secured by advance payment of at least one night’s room rate and tax. Rates and availability are subject to change. All rates are per night, based on double occupancy. Rates are not guaranteed until the reservation is complete. The daily rate quoted is an average daily rate for the dates chosen. If a reservation is changed, shortened, or extended, the average daily rate may change. Weekends and holidays are subject to minimum stay requirements. Cash and major credit cards (Am Ex., Visa, MC, & Discover) accepted. Personal checks are not accepted for room rental or for any other services. For security purposes, the credit card used to secure your reservation must be presented at check-in.
Cancellations and No-Shows
Warm Sands Villas has a minimal number of rooms. No-shows and cancellations have a major effect on our ability to remain successful. Therefore, our cancellation policies must be strictly enforced. It is impossible to verify “hardship” cancellations. Therefore, all cancellations are treated the same, regardless of the reason given. If you are concerned about the possibility of incurring processing or cancellation fees, we would strongly advise that you purchase travel insurance.
For bookings of five nights or less, any advance payment, less a $25 Processing Fee, is refundable if the reservation is canceled or changed more than five days prior to arrival. If the reservation is changed or canceled within five days of arrival, the advanced deposit becomes non-refundable, and you will be charged for the total cost of the entire scheduled stay. Advanced payments are applied to the last night of the scheduled stay. Again, if a guest has any concerns about the strict cancellation policy or the possibility of incurring processing or cancellation fees due to unforeseen circumstances, we would strongly advise that they purchase travel insurance.
A no-show gives us no opportunity whatsoever to re-book a room, therefore no-shows are immediately charged in full to the credit card provided.
Multiple Rooms Nights
When more than five nights are reserved, an advanced payment covering the entire stay is required at the time of reservation. This advanced payment, less a $50 Processing Fee, is refundable if the reservation is changed or canceled more than thirty days prior to arrival. If a reservation of six or more room-nights is changed or canceled within thirty days of arrival, the full advanced payment becomes non-refundable.
When three or more rooms are reserved, an advanced payment covering the entire stay is required at the time of reservation. This advanced payment, less a $50 per room Processing Fee, is refundable if any or all reservations are changed or canceled more than thirty days prior to arrival. If any or all reservations for three or more rooms are changed or canceled within thirty days of arrival, the full advanced payment becomes non-refundable.
