MID CENTURY DESIGN AUTHORS DESERT MODERN HOME

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Large Living room plus den room, sleeps 6

Great, spacious late mid century home.

Owned by the author of many books, including 'modern retro', 'living modern', living retro', 'sarasota modern' and 'highrise living'.

Built in 1979 it has the elements of the earlier homes yet, the modernity of a later one.

The landscape is mature, with large swimming and reflecting pools. There are over 20 tall rustling palms.

The interior is an eclectic mix of all mid century.

Found from various sources, auction, thrift stores, estate and garage sales, everything in the house is there because we love it!

We have a well stocked dvd library, outdoor speakers for the cd sound system.

The hottub is located just off the deck that leads from the master bedroom.

Besides the main swimming pool there is a small shallow pool with water features.

Wireless broadband services the entire house.

There is a large very clean 2 car garage for parking also available.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair accessible
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only

I am the author of many books on mid century design and architecture, titles including modern retro, Sarasota modern, living modern and living retro. I also own and run design store/gallery in London that specializes in Mid century Modern furniture and design. I own homes in Florida, Palm Springs , London and Essex

Andrew Weaving purchased this house in 2007

While researching for my last book 'living retro' I spent a lot time in Palm Springs and really liked it. Son as soon as I could I tried to find a house to buy. Owning 1950s homes in Florida I didn't really want an Alexander, so was lucky to find this house built in the 70s, but still with great architectural features and bones.

Home is a gem

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 8, 2013

Andrew's home is a gem. It is beautiful and functional, light and airy, modern and comfortable, well situated and appointed, really almost too good to be true. It is situated in a lovely part of Palm Springs near the tiny airport, an easy 10 minute drive to Downtown, and 15 to Trader Joe's. It is a place in which one is able to relax, gather inspiration and appreciate the beauty of the desert landscape. We barbecued almost every night and enjoyed many hours in the pool, floating on our backs under the swaying palm trees where we tried to spot the occasional airplane soaring right above our noses, a lovely experience in and of itself. Best of all is Andrew's fantastic collection of unique mid century pieces generously laid out throughout the home giving the home a true Palm Springs appeal. To boot, Andrew is a very attentive and gracious host. We have booked many apartment rentals all over the world and have yet to experience such professionalism. We will surely be back and highly recommend this lovely vacation home without reservations.

Second year have been to the house, its just gets better! helped by the very warm weather in April, had great three days at the house after hectic week in New York. Great place to visit Josh Nat Park, Tramway, Indian Canyons and just sitting by the pool. The house is decoarated to a very high standard and the support re meeting and cleaning is brilliant, we will return. It feels like our little retreat that we do not want to share with anybody else!!! its a must

Very Private and secluded back yard with fantastic hot tub and pool. I cannot say enough the entire experience was wonderful. Thanks Andrew and Rick.

Best Weekend Ever!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Three friends and I wanted a quick easy get away from LA - a weekend of pool and BBQ was what we were after and this more than delivered! The photos really don't do the property justice, it's just amazing, indoors and out! It's also really well equipped (corn on the cob holders & lilo's for the pool!!) which just added to the ease of the break!

The booking process was also made so simple and easy by Andrew which is something we had found to be an issue with so many other properties.

Overall a great weekend in a really stunning location. Cannot recommend enough - we are already planning the next trip!

Palm Springs - Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2013
This house and yard was perfect for our family Spring Break getaway! Everything was great. We did have an issue with the refridgerator during our stay, but we notified the property manager and he was out to take care of it within hours.

We loved the back yard and spent most of our time enjoying the pool, hot tub and grill. I don't think that we ate any meals inside the house during our stay.

Andrew has provided a lot of information and brochures about things to do near by and provided detailed maps of Palm Springs itself. These came in very handy. Was also a nice touch that the house keys had a discount card for the local grocery store!

Definitely recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to Palm Springs!!
