BEAUTIFUL MID CENTURY HIDEAWAY - FEATURED IN NEW YORK TIMES 'DESERT COOL'

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Full House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6), covered patio, pool, hotub

Our Original restored Palmer+Kriesel designed Alexander mid century sits on 11000 square foot lot on a cul-de-sac and was featured in the New York Times 'Home section' entitled 'Desert Cool' in 2005. Inside, you'll find classic modern treatments such as Eames tables and chairs, Case Study beds in both bedrooms, mixed with completely renovated bathrooms and kitchen with everything you’ll need. High vaulted ceilings and refinished flat cement flooring throughout with Design-Within-Reach throw rugs and FLOR tiles.

The Living Room features a Hi-Definition TV and DirectTv with movie channels (HBO, SHOWTIME, CINEMAX), and a SONOS sound system. The master bedroom also features a wood burning fireplace. Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors open to a kidney shaped pool, surrounded by palm trees. There's even a private outdoor lounging/eating covered patio, framed by Frosted resin panels. 2 separate in-ground gas fire pits, one by the pool and living area, and the other by the hot tub, provide some privacy even when together on the property.

As of September 2014 we’ve upgraded the house with new pool loungers from Design-Within-Reach, re-plastered the pool including new imported tile from Japan, upgraded the TV to a new 50” LED Sony, and added new LG Washer/Dryers. Last year we upgraded the hot tub to a Hot Spring Spa with Moto-Massage® jets, complemented by a Quartet® jet system, to soothe your neck, shoulders and back. Its comfortable seating, styled armrests, and SoothingStream® water feature provide maximum relaxation.

PS TOT#20010031

THREE LOUNGING AREAS : Additionally, a third seclusive lounging area off the middle bedroom (away from the other areas) by the hot tub features original Balinese wood loungers. Overall - magical and relaxing...

COMPLETE PRIVACY: The house is located on one of the larger lots in the Racquet Club Estates and is completely enclosed and private (backyard, pool ,spa, lounging areas).

GOLF + PARK: While 'true' golfer's probably won't want to use the clubs we make available, we do have an old set at the house for your use...in case you want to golf at one of the local public courses for fun.

Just one block away is a large grassy park with trees and benches, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying here! I wanted to move in permanently. The house is casual but elegant. Cool

contemporary art, great mid-century furniture, smooth concrete floors and a chic grey 70's

fireplace in the master bedroom (loved it!) awesome outdoor areas...loved the lava rock

firepits and covered patio. I love the Parker and Ace but didn't really ever want to leave the house!

Desert Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
It's taken me a long time to write this review... But that doesn't lessen its impact. First of all let me say that Marcel is awesome... Definitely a man with integrity and good will. This was our first visit to Palm Springs but hopefully not our last. From the moment we arrived at "Desert Cool" we knew we were in for a treat. I came to Palm Springs to see the worlds best in mid-century modern design. I not only saw it... but actually lived it! "Desert Cool" is an original "Alexander" home. Very mid-century... Very modern... And very cool. The home itself has been thoughtfully remodeled to the period. Very clean and very well maintained. Location is great, tucked away in a very cool neighborhood of other "Alexanders" and period homes. You will need a car to get downtown. But realize that just about wherever you are in Palm Springs, you'll need a car to get anywhere. We flew into LAX because never been to Southern CA we wanted to include a couple days near the ocean as well. This worked perfect for us. I'm not sure what else to say except you will NOT be disappointed with this rental home! I also have to give a shout out to "The Purple Room" restaurant and bar / nightclub / supper club. In my mind... a MUST visit in Palm Springs! Thanks Marcel for everything!

great long weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing long weekend, the house has everything you need from towels to the well stocked kitchen. We go to Palm Springs often so we cooked at home every night because it was so pleasant to be there. The backyard is completely private and there is no car traffic noise. We hope to go back soon.

Such a lovely, relaxing, private, and quiet spot

  • 5 of 5
It's hard to imagine a more tranquil and conveniently located spot in Palm Springs. Quiet and lovely with a well-stocked kitchen and large gas grill. Perfect for anyone who loves mid-century design. We loved the very private back yard with fire pits, pool, and hot tub with lovely mountain views. The Sleep Number beds ensured great sleep. The owner was perfectly organized and helpful.

So easy to rejuvenate!

  • 5 of 5
This home is such a haven! The yard is huge and open but very private so you feel like you have the world to yourself. Marcel was very available but never once intruded on our time - perfect blend. We would definitely choose this home again for a Palm Springs get away.

Perfect Mid Century Modern Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely and well taken care of home in the Racquet Club neighborhood. If you like the clean and simple mid-century modern aesthetic, then you will love this house. The backyard is HUGE with several areas to lounge and sunbathe and is completely secure and dog friendly. Two fire pits for the evenings and a great jacuzzi under the stars. The kitchen is very well stocked and we spent most evenings cooking at home and dining poolside. Very comfy beds and a great double shower in the master bedroom. Just a short drive to downtown shops and restaurants. Can't wait to go back!!!!! Thank you, Marcel!
