BEAUTIFUL FUN PALM SPRINGS PRIVATE POOL HOUSE, SPA, MTN VIEWS

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms including Casita, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

This 'Mid Century Modern' Classic Palm Springs Alexander home, with newer private Swimming Pool and large private Hot Tub, offers every amenity one could want for a terrific Palm Springs getaway any season of the year. New Air Conditioning System installed August 2012.

Conveniently located on a quiet street near downtown Palm Springs, just minutes from casinos, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.

Recently beautifully restored, upgraded, and newly furnished, the home was designed by celebrated Southern California architects Kriesel and Palmer.

This naturally lit and airy ‘Butterfly' profile home with high ceilings is beautifully furnished in a comfortable yet classic style in keeping with its mid-century feel, but with today's lifestyle in mind. Doors open from the kitchen/great room directly to a partially covered outdoor entertainment area-- the perfect place for outdoor meals or just relaxing and taking in the panoramic mountain views.

Private Swimming Pool, Large Hot Tub, New Air Conditioning System (new August 2012), 42' TV, DVD: Adjacent to the patio area is a newer private large Swimming Pool. Also in the private backyard under its own cabana is the large Hot Tub, convenient from the master bedroom suite. The spacious backyard is surrounded by an aesthetically pleasing tall privacy wall and has a lawn and beautifully planted desert scape gardens for a resort like feel. South facing exposure enables full east to west sunshine at the pool throughout the day, as well as spectacular views of the San Jacinto mountains. You'll enjoy sunbathing poolside while you gaze in awe at the mountains sometimes covered in snow, just so you'll remember how lucky you are!

42' Plasma TV, DVD in living room. Cable TV, DVD in master bedroom and cabana.

The Palm Springs Area: Palm Springs is truly a world class vacation destination...The variety of shopping is unbelievable, a huge new casino, a variety of nightlife, the famous Aerial Tram to the mountaintops (enjoy any number of spectacular wilderness hikes) and many nearby state and national parks! World class golf courses, tennis courts, hiking, biking, water theme park, Imax theatres, museums, etc. are all nearby.

Oh, and lest we forget... the great winter weather is the best in the West! The fun never stops, unless you want to relax, and then, well, we've refined that to an art form here!

Have the time of your life!: Restrictions: Absolutely No Pets, No Parties, No Loud Noise and No Indoor Smoking. Home is in a quiet residential neighborhood. Quiet hours 10 pm- 8 am. Occupancy limited to number booked. Rates are subject to change until booked. All reservations are final.

GREAT PALM SPRINGS GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd time at Alexander Classic Palm Springs Pool House. We love it! We have been in the winter, spring, and summertime, and have always thoroughly enjoyed our stays.

The location is great, close to downtown yet quiet. The sun "sets" about an hour early in Palm Springs if you're anywhere near downtown due to the mountains to the west (areas to the east may have a little later sunset but they're less desirable areas and too far from downtown for us).

The backyard is really nice...new, always clean pool is very private and has lots of sun all day with nice mountain views. I would say the spa is large, very private and relaxing. Both pool & spa have always been well maintained for us, and the new patios sharp looking too. Feels like your own private resort!

The furniture is mostly new or near new and very comfortable. The ice & water dispenser always worked fine for us, and we appreciate the extra bags of fesh ice in the freezer that Terry provided, very thoughtful. A lot of care is evident in the restoration of this lovely mid century butterfly home. The high ceilings, clerstory windows, and crisp decor make it airy, cheery, very inviting and comfortable.

We always spend a lot of time at the pool, and love going to the nearby Spa Casino for entertainment and great priced dining. We love walking on Palm Canyon Drive and the people are very friendly and the shopping goes on for miles. We also like bike riding around the neighborhood, very pleasant. The mountain tram is a lot of fun and we like hiking up there in the summertime. The golf courses nearby are well run and affordable, and the water park is great to cool off in the summertime.

Kudos to Terry for running a nice, reliable, well equipped rental that has made our stays in Palm Springs so comfortable and enjoyable! We have always felt it is a great value and we'll definitely be back. Cheers!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
We were 3 couples from Alberta down for an early start on summer. Our group loves cooking and we found the kitchen to be nicely equipped and convenient to the pool and outdoor grill. The home is comfortable and welcoming and everyone had their own nice bedroom. Lots of fun was had by all. Hated to leave! Booking and arrangements were smooth and efficient. Excellent value. We recommend to anyone looking for a fun vacation in Palm Springs. Convenient to shopping, downtown, etc. Thanks for making your home available to us!

FABULOUS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our annual golfing ladies' getaway was wonderful and this place was a big part of the reason. Nicely furnished and lovely pool and backyard. Nicer than in the pictures. Prompt and courteous help. I've already told family and friends about it. We really enjoyed our non-golfing time relaxing at the pool and shopping on Palm Canyon Drive. Thanks so much.

LOVELY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful vacation in this lovely home in Palm Springs. The home is just a sdescribed, very hip, welcoming, and up to date. Clean and well maintained. Very efficient and courteous booking process and responsive to all concerns. We will recommend to family and friends. The area has lots of fun things to do. We do recommend renting a car but you can walk to Palm Canyon Drive or ride a bike as it is flat, easy to get around. We loved walking downtown and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. Thank you!

DISAPPOINTED-TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!

  • 1 of 5
We have been renting from Home Away for several years and this was our worst experience! After John, the booking agent, took our money, he was no longer available to answer any of our questions in a timely fashion. That began when we found out my dad needed quadruple bypass surgery 4 days after we booked our trip. We contacted John immediately to cancel our trip and several days later heard back that there are NO REFUNDS-period. The house had only been off the market 4 days, really?? We were told that we could switch our days within a year, but with 3 kids and school schedules, we knew that wouldn't be possible. So we decided to go as planned and not lose our money.
We were not told how to get into the house, was there a hidden key, would someone meet us there?..until after we landed in CA. Every other house we rented sent us detailed info well before the day the rental started.
The 1st day of our stay we discovered the oven did not work. We contacted John immediately. 2 days later, day 3 of our stay, we received a text saying that the owner would meet the repair guy at the house the next day. When I asked Terry if anyone else had complained that the oven did not work, sure enough, the renters before us had. He came out, turned on the broiler and because it worked, ignored the oven issue. The reason we rent houses instead of staying in hotels is because we have 3 kids and eating out every meal is too costly.
When we asked for some sort of refund due to the broken stove for 5 out of 6 days of our stay, we were ignored. When we pushed further, the response was, "an oven is 1/1000 of the property so I'll be glad to issue a credit for 1/1000 of your rent. It is not possible to fix all appliances the same day as the complaint." We understand that, but he could have been more apologetic about it and more responsive to our complaint 2 days prior. He then went on to say we left the air conditioning set unnecessarily low and left the spa cover off the entire stay. Our response...it was over 90 degrees our entire stay!! One day it even reached 99, so turning the air lower did not seem unreasonable to us. As for the spa cover, there were no directions or rules at the house for us to follow. We don't own a hot tub, so we don't know how to take care of one! Our recommendation---don't rent this house if you are expecting any sort of decent customer service.Terry would be smart to find himself another booking agent!!

Owner's Response: Actually this guest's request to cancel was replied to the next day. The guest was given the option of re-scheduling for no charge up to a year later which he could have done, or to have us try to re-book the dates for him. He opted for the latter. At the 30 day point most groups have already made travel arrangements so we were not sucessful in our attempt. As it turned out everyone in this group stayed these dates, so there evidently was not an emergency for anyone in the party. In the rare event that guests want to cancel, they usually are able to re-schedule, if not, we are usually able to re-book, but unfortunately not this time.

We inadvertently forgot to email the key code a week out as we normally do. He could have contacted us at any time to get the code but he did not.

The owner thought the oven had been fully repaired prior to their stay but it turned out just the stove and broiler were fine but not the lower heating element. Unfortunately sometimes it can take a few days to get a repair appointment. Apparently use of an oven in 90 degree plus weather was as necessary for this guest as setting the AC excessively low the entire stay. Also, this guest received a 15% discount for renting without the casita, however they used the casita without permission AND set the AC excessively low there as well. And, we don't think it very thoughtful to toss the spa lid on the ground and leave it off the whole stay to get the spa all dirty and waste more energy (or to need directions not to do so) but that is what they did as well.

All of our other guests have been very pleased over our 12 year history of renting this home as evidenced by the other reviews, and we thank you all for your considerate use of the home and look forward to having you stay with us again.

Palm Springs has really come alive! The decadent shopping is unbelievable, a huge new casino, the famous Aerial Tram to the mountaintops, and many nearby state and national parks make this a terrific vacation spot. World class golf courses, tennis courts, hiking, biking, water park, Imax theatres, etc. all nearby. Yet you can be as peaceful and lazy as you like! And of course the great winter weather is the best in the West!
