circa 1965, 'The Schwartz House' , designed by Hal Levitt, well known mid-century architect of the famous Trousdale Estates. Hal Levitt homes are popular among many celebrities including Jennifer Aniston.

This truly one of a kind house is referred to by Palm Springs experts as 'One of the top three homes in Palm Springs'. This home has been featured on the modernist tour, was in Lucky magazine, was in several 'Design Within Reach' catalogs and more. This home is truly like living in a piece of art. We know your jaw will drop and you will say 'WOW' when you enter this home!

Unlike most mid-century modern homes, this quintessential Palm Springs home is almost 4,000 square feet of living space. The walls of glass take advantage of the breathtaking views of the San Jacinto mountains.

This open floor plan home with polished concrete floors has two living areas... the main living room and the step down groovy lounge that provides a great place for intimate conversations or to relax and read a book. These two areas are 'connected' by the unbelievably beautiful see-through gas fireplace with the hippest tile work from the mid-century. All living areas have jaw dropping mountain views. The home features a large step up dining area that seats 8 people for meals, drinks, games or just great conversation. The atrium also seats 8 people for eating under the stars or enjoying views of the palm trees.

The gourmet kitchen has stainless appliances and everything you need in a kitchen including pots, pans, dishes, trays., toaster, microwave, blender, coffee pot, quesadilla maker, waffle maker and much more. The island offers several bar stools for people to keep you company while you cook.

It has four large bedrooms each with their own full bathroom, own flat screen TV with cable, large closets, and each with access to the outside directly from the bedroom. The private outside access from each bedroom is very unique and is perfect for sitting outside for an early morning coffee or a late night drink, without disturbing the others in the house. The bedrooms have 3 Kiing size beds and 1 queen. Each has upscale, beautiful bedding...not you typical rental bedding! High thread count sheets, duvets, nice pillows, etc.

If you want a private pool with stunning views, you found the perfect house. The pool and spa are salt water so you are not soaking in toxic chlorine.The pool area has lots of comfortable seating for lounging or sitting. It also has a beautiful sculpture/fountain, stainless steel gas grill, fruit trees, umbrella and and the world's best pool floats. It is completely private and can't be seen by any neighbors.

Now...lets talk location! Located in the most desirable area of Palm Springs known as South Palm Springs. This home is in walking distance to the hip Ace Hotel and Swim Club and the local favorite coffee shop called Koffi. It is also very close to the main strip in Palm Springs that has lots of shops and cafes.

This non-smoking home also has high speed wireless internet, unlimited long distance calling, 3 DVD players, lots of movies on DVD, amazing stereo system, a 500 CD changer, numerous CDs, board games, 2 car garage, washer/dryer and more.

This home is privately owned and managed so you get first class personal attention during your entire rental process. We love our home and know you will too! Call us today to book your vacation.

About The Owner

We ABSOLUTELY love our home. We first saw it in 2004 when there were already 2 other offers in on it to purchase. From 2004-2011 we looked at dozens and dozens of homes in Palm Springs but never found one as amazing and unique as this home. We were thrilled in 2011 when the house went back on the market and we were able to buy it. If you appreciate mid-century architecture, you will see why we love this house so much. There is so much we love about Palm Springs but mostly it is relaxing by the pool, the stunning views and our morning hikes.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Palm Springs

We have been coming to Palm Springs every year and fell in love with this neighborhood. It is walking distance to almost everything yet it is so incredibly quiet. The views when you walk in this neighborhood are breathtaking.

What makes this house unique

We are close to everything, have unobstructed mountain views in a very quiet neighborhood, I love nothing more than walking to the local favorite Koffi for a coffee in the morning.

Unique Beautiful Home...one of a kind without a doubt!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I looked about about 150 homes when deciding where to stay in Palm Springs. We wanted a mid-century modern home with a view and in South Palm Springs (the best area of Palm Springs). As soon as we opened the rental ad we knew we wanted to stay in this home. We even changed our travel dates to be able to rent this house....we are SO glad we did. This home is unbelievably perfect! It is well appointed with the perfect combination of mid-century furnishings and modern luxury. The pictures are exactly how the home looks (which was a welcome change to other homes we have rented in the past). We have already booked this house again for next year...and we are counting the days!

House, furnishings, view, location, pool..all A PLUS PLUS!

  • 5 of 5
Too many great things to list but some of our favorites about this house are: walls of glass, super light and bright, mid-century furnishings, views, privacy, large rooms, immaculate home, south palm springs location and MUCH MORE!!!! We have been coming to Palm Springs for 15 years and rent a different house each trip. However, that has now changed...this is the only house we will now rent if it is available. By far this is the nicest house in Palm Springs we have ever seen. Now we know why there is so much talk about this home! Thanks for letting us rent your home and thanks for being such a pleasure to work with!

THE most beautiful home in Palm Springs hands down!

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to start. We saw this home on the modernism tour in 2014 and were blown away. What a treat that we got to stay here! The owners don't allow many rentals each year so we were thrilled when our dates were available. We have been going on the modernism tour for many, many years. This home is absolutely one of the top 3 homes we have ever seen in Palm Springs. The second we walked in the door our jaws dropped. The floor to ceiling glass, the bright rooms, the views, the furnishings, the pool and so much more. We love that each bedroom has its on bath and each room is super roomy with its own closet. The pool is much bigger and deeper than most pools we have seen in Palm Springs. The privacy is fantastic at the pool as no one can see in the back yard due to a mid-century wall and lots of tall trees and shrubs. Stay here...you will be blown away too! We WILL be back!

STUNNING!!!! WOW! BEST HOME IN PALM SPRINGS!

  • 5 of 5
Don't even know where to start. Just get ready for your jaw to drop when you walk in this home. The architecture is so unique and beautiful as is all the furnishings. We felt like we were staying in a magazine cover! All the bedrooms are so roomy and we loved that we all had our home bathroom. Jane was fabulous to work with. She clearly loves this home and Palm Springs and gave us so many great suggestions for restaurants and hikes. I can see why this home is rated as one of the top homes in Palm Springs. We feel lucky to have stayed here and absolutely plan to come back soon!

Swanky vintage - an incredible stay!!

  • 5 of 5
Looked for months for the perfect house for my best friend's Marilyn Monroe bachelorette weekend. We had three requirements for the hours: big enough to hang out, swanky enough for Marilyn herself, and a FABULOUS pool. I saw the Schwartz house and looked no further.

The house was a surprise for my friend, who is very tough to surprise since fabulous is her middle name, but seeing her face once we pulled up and walked in to the house was amazing - I still get the chills :) The girls ages ranged form 23-42 and all had the same reaction and appreciation to this place.

Mark was great to work with (we actually had to work pretty closely together because of the threatening Palm Springs wildfire raging at the time) and you could just see how much he adored this house in the decor. It's stunning.

The 4 bedrooms were huge and beautifully decorated. The beauty of the vintage dining and living room furniture was not lost on us, who all have experience in all things vintage. Everything in the house worked perfectly, although we had a tough time figuring out the fancy magnetic stove top! (But in the end, we did!). My favorite was the sliding glass door in the main shower that opens right out to the pool. So cool.

Tons of towels, linens, and everything else, so didn't have to pack all that in. All the appliances of home - coffee maker, blender, toaster, laundry, etc.

Just for fun, when you walk into this house, try to write down all the words you say when you're taking the first tour. You will come up with entirely new words, trust me :)

One of a kind -

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible time at this Palm Springs home. Each of my guests each experienced a 'wow' moment upon walking in the door, myself included. The house is historic, beautifully decorated, comfortable, well maintained, lights up artfully at night, and is thoroughly appointed in the kitchen/bathrooms/equipped with ipod hookups, games, etc. The house inspires you to take lots of pictures of your friends/family. Location-wise it is near the ACE Hotel and close to the essentials like groceries, restaurants, etc. Additionally, the owner and manager were also very helpful during our stay - I will definitely return.
