Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The former Palm Springs estate of famed movie star Alan Ladd, this home is a Mid-Century Modern designed by WEXLER. This home is truly one of the desert’s most remarkable properties. Located on one of the finest streets in the very heart of the exclusive and quiet Old Las Palmas neighborhood (the Beverly Hills of Palm Springs!), the compound has all of the amenities and glamor that one would expect in the former home of such a major star. Designed by legendary architects Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison, the home has been featured in numerous architectural books and magazines, as well as the book “Palm Springs Confidential.”

The 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom estate sprawls over 4000+ square feet and has an open floor plan perfect for large scale entertaining or family gatherings. The home is entered from the street through gates, the walls and hedges of the large property providing a secure and utterly private environment for our guests. As was the style with classic mid-century architecture, virtually the entire home opens onto the spectacular back yard & pool area. The pool is quite large (suitable for lap swimming) with an elevated spa and three waterfalls surrounding the edge. Seating and lounging is abundant for sunbathing during the day with breathtaking mountain views and 2-fire pits to provide warmth and elegance in the evening!

The home is equally spectacular inside. The living space flows easily from the great room with stone fireplace, into a media room with seating for 8 and a large new plasma TV, a formal dining room with seating for an additional 8-10, and a casual dining room and wet bar with seating for another 8. Immediately adjacent and open to the casual dining room and bar, is the expansive cook’s kitchen complete with all the amenities one would expect in a home of this caliber. For our Kosher Friends we have 2 Dishwashers, 2 Ovens, and 2 Sinks with NEW Corian Counter Tops. In addition, there is an outdoor grill for poolside entertaining! Needless to say, the furnishings are comfortable, yet elegant, in keeping with the mid-century decor. Original art adorns the walls throughout!

The 5 bedrooms are separated into two wings. On one side of the house is the master bedroom and bath, opening onto the pool and with a huge walk in closet. Two other bedrooms are located in the master wing, each with a dedicated bathroom.

The remaining two bedrooms are located on the complete opposite end of the house, behind the kitchen. Both open directly to the pool area. Every bedroom has its own new flat screen TV.

Finally, the house is walking distance to downtown Palm Springs and close to shopping, dining, golfing, tennis, hiking and the casinos. The Old Las Palmas neighborhood is perfect for biking, walking and jogging, with its flat, wide streets. Come visit the Alan Ladd Estate and experience the glamor of Old Hollywood in Palm Springs!

Great house

  • 5 of 5
This was my first VRBO rental and I was absolutely delighted how well it worked out when we rented this place out on this labor day weekend.James and the property manager Kenny were "#awesome" in getting everything ready before we arrived..They were very prompt on replying back to our emails and our phone calls.We liked it very much and we definitely will rent the same place again on our next trip to palm springs(and it will happen when the weather outside is not 8000 degrees)..LOL..Thank you once again for being so responsible in taking care of people who rent your property.Cheers and hugs.

Great location for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family recently stayed at the Alan Ladd Estate to celebrate Graduations and our 40th anniversary!! We were in Palm Springs in the summer during a heat wave and the Air Conditioning offered us great relief from the heat! We all loved the pool area. The pool is such a great size and the umbrellas and retractable shade gave us needed protection from the sun. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies. The grill is awesome! The home has a very open general area-great for entertaining! The bedrooms are tucked away at the ends of the home so you can escape to peace and quiet if you so choose.

We arrived late. The house was nicely staged with all of the lights on and music playing. The managers have put together a very informative booklet to get you acquainted with the area and the home. We felt very welcome!

The neighborhood is very quite and great for taking walks. Restaurants are close by. Downtown was fun and happening! There is a huge statue of Marilyn Monroe currently downtown. A variety of stores are close by so if you forget something, you can easily find it at the store.

The ladies made the mandatory shopping visit to the outlets-about a 20 minute drive-very easy. The whole family went on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. This is just a short (5 minute) drive away and it is really awesome! It was about 30 degrees cooler up there--so bring the right clothing if you go.

We had our one year old grandson with us and this home was perfect for him as well!

My husband read the book about Alan Ladd's life and shared that with us as he read. Very interesting.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this lovely home for four days with our two dogs (very beautiful, well behaved Golden Retrievers). Our two daughters and grandson came up for part of the time from LA to stay with us as well. Palm Springs, as always, was a lot of fun. The house was outstanding. We were within walking distance of downtown so didn't have to drive everywhere. The pool was awesome, the house was very mid-century in styling and laid out great for our family. We would all (even the three year old) highly recommend the house and plan on renting it again ourselves!

As Good as it Gets

  • 5 of 5
My wife, our dog and myself stayed at the Alan Ladd house for a long weekend with a number of friends. Everyone loved the house. It is charming, well equipped, well maintained with comfortable beds and bedding. The house is located in a nice area of Palm Springs which is also out of the wind. Several of our group were in Palm Springs to take part in an organized bike ride where section of the route were so windy we had trouble keeping our bikes upright. At the house there was no wind. In summary I would say that if you are seeking this size house I doubt if there is a better place in Palm Springs. With confidence we give the Alan Ladd House an unconditional guarantee that you will be happy with your choice.

Such a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the week at the Alan Ladd house having an Amazeballs reunion with friends from college. The property just bleeds "Old Hollywood" from every pore, and we spent many a moment wondering who had been at parties here in the 50's and 60's. The pool/yard is spacious and elegantly manicured with terrific views of the mountains to the west, and one can just imagine Debbie Reynolds passed out in the grass. The house itself has many fixtures and furniture that re original from the time, adding to the illusion. However, there are also all the modern fixtures including plasma/lcd televisions in every room. There is plenty of room throughout for a party or to find a private corner to read quietly. Overall, I would definitely return to this location as often as I could!

But...

The best aspect of the property was definitely the management of the place. Clark, the property manager, was wonderful and took care of our every need. Alan Ladd, it seems, caused a few small incidences by playing some jokes on us. Once the power blew, but Clark was right there with instructions on how to immediately fix it, and then he stopped by with a wonderful gift of guacamole for the house to make up for the problem (unnecessary, but greatly appreciated!) Another incident (or joke from Alan) was the fridge stopped working. But once again, Clark, was there to help. One of the owners, Jim (a complete "Silver Fox"!, btw) immediately brought us a new fridge to use. (The regular fridge was also fixed asap). They were both extremely friendly and honestly concerned that we have the most relaxing and enjoyable time possible. Thank you both!

Basically, rent this house. It is conveniently located in one of Palm Springs best neighborhoods, and is extremely representative of what "old Palm Springs" was all about. I can't recommend it enough!

Thanks again for an Amazeballs stay!

Had a great time at the Ladd Estate. Fulfilled all of our expectations. Management was perfect.

  • 5 of 5
My family just completed a week at the Ladd house. It met all our needs and we had a ball.

James was extremely accomdating and flexible in agreeing to some needed date changes in our reservation. He was a gentleman.

And, Clarke, the on site manager, was teriffic. He was fun, engaging and made sure that all went well.

And, if guests try real hard and are on their best behavior, they may even be able to run into Alan!!

First rate experience.

Thanks.
