Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Racquet Club Retreat

Come celebrate the Palm Springs Midcentury Modern lifestyle in this iconic 1961“butterfly” Alexander private home located in the ultra hip Racquet Club Estates neighborhood. You're just down the street from the legendary Riviera Hotel and Racquet Club Resort where Hollywood celebrities like the Rat Pack, Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra came to play. Designed by famed architect William Krisel, this vacation getaway epitomizes the modernist and minimalist principles of the Desert Modern Era with post & beam construction, clerestory windows, soaring rooflines, decorative masonry rock, tongue & groove exposed wood beam ceilings and an open floor plan melding the indoor/outdoor living spaces.

Lovingly preserved and stylishly updated with all the 21st century modern conveniences, you’ll find everything necessary for a perfect desert vacation. Furnished with comfort and style in mind, this home combines a mix of vintage décor, contemporary colorful art, laminate wood floors and modern accents. The expansive great room with dramatic ceilings and walls of glass brighten the living space with generous natural light and take advantage of the abundant Palm Springs sun. Relax on the large sectional sofa watching the 42” flat screen TV with DVD player and movie library or listen to your favorite music on the stereo, CD player or IPOD. On those cool desert evenings cozy up to the natural gas fireplace and enjoy a nice meal at the comfortable retro dining table with extensions to seat 6-8 people. You can also dine alfresco on the 6-person glass outdoor table.

The updated kitchen features glass mosaic countertops, space-age metal & glass cabinets and stainless steel appliances including a double sink, professional series 6-burner gas range, Maytag refrigerator with ice maker and Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen is conveniently open to the living and dining areas perfect for entertaining guests or keeping the chef company.

All three bedrooms have Queen size beds, loads of dresser & closet space, soaring exposed beam ceilings and beautiful mountain views from the clerestory windows. The private master suite at the end of the hallway provides a respite from the daily activities with flat screen TV, sliding glass door leading to outside spa patio and en suite bath with outside door to pool area.

Both bathrooms have sunken tubs with charcoal tiled showers, large vessel sinks, vanity storage cabinets and are tastefully updated with modern fixtures & accessories. Plenty of towels and linens are also provided.

The crown jewel of this property is the abundant outdoor living space completely walled & gated with masonry and corrugated metal fencing, providing a private oasis for enjoying all your leisure activities. Beautiful desert gardens enhance the picturesque setting with towering palm trees, cacti, poodled olive tree, hedges, grasses and succulents. By day, float aimlessly in the deep heated SALT WATER pool, soak in the sun and majestic mountain views from lounge chairs on the West-facing sundeck or relax under the covered patio with a cool drink. By night, enjoy cocktails and conversation seated around the natural gas glass crystal fire pit. Or, soak your cares away in the 6-person Jacuzzi spa under a canopy of twinkling desert stars and marvelous mountain vistas. A natural gas stainless steel BBQ and plenty of pool floats are provided to complete the perfect outdoor experience.

Other amenities include a covered carport, Maytag washer & dryer in the bedroom hallway, Wifi, phone service with unlimited long distance to US & Canada and cable TV. For the utmost guest comfort, this house provides a new furnace, A/C, updated plumbing, new awnings, new fencing, new concrete pavers and a new gas fire pit.

This home is the ultimate Palm Springs getaway for avid modernism enthusiasts, a romantic couples weekend or a fun family vacation. We strive to provide you all the comforts of home without the work. That is why we offer all our guests access to a local property manager on call to attend to your needs. Weekly gardening service, estate disposal service and pool service twice per week are also provided. Just relax and enjoy your stay!

This property is nestled in the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood, home to early Hollywood celebrities like Debbie Reynolds, Ruta Lee and Steve McQueen. With close proximity to San Jacinto & the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and two miles to the Palm Springs village center, it’s the perfect locale to experience all the attractions and entertainment that Palm Springs has to offer including day spas, golfing, boutiques, museums, art galleries, dining, coffee houses, hiking, biking, horseback riding, gambling, bars and night clubs. You will also be about 1 mile from Albertson’s grocery store, Starbucks, World Gym, Walgreens and right around the corner from Victoria Park.

International guests will find Palm Springs to be an ideal 'home base' for daytrip excursions to Southern California.

We purchased this home as a warm winter escape from the cold Minnesota weather. We were automatically drawn to the unique design of the mid-century modern style and decided to own our own piece of Palm Springs history. Vacationing in Palm Springs many times, we fell in love with the clean desert air and sunny year round temperatures. Although we don't get a chance to spend too much time in the desert, we hope others will enjoy the warmth, solace and rejuvenation this desert getaway has to offer.

Daria purchased this house in 2007

We chose the Racquet Club Estates neighborhood for its historical significance, large private lots, panoramic mountain views and close proximity to all the major attractions. Within a short bike ride, you'll find coffee houses, live theatre, restaurants, boutiques, Spa Resort Casino, art galleries and much more.

The qualities of this unique home that make is so special to us are the authentic mid-century architecture design and cool retro vibe. It's a 1961 Krisel design with vintage furnishings and modern day amenities. There are so many activities to enjoy while visiting this home, including lounging by the pool, swimming, soaking in the spa, gathering around the fire pit at night or sipping cocktails or have morning coffee under the covered lanai.

Another great feature this property location has to offer is its proximity to Victoria Park. A beautiful public park with volleyball court, picnic tables, children's playground and plenty of grass for playing with your dog.

PALM SPRINGS - HOME RENATL - VRBO 397505

  • 5 of 5
We (6 of us) rented this awesome 60s-70s retro 3 bedroom home. It was renovated inside and was very clean and functional. The backyard was super w Pool, Hot Tub, Fire Pit and BBQ. 10 minutes to downtown Palm Springs and walking distance to local grocery store, banking, pizza, park for your dog, et. The Manager, Daria, was excellent to work with. We'd highly recommend this home - we had a great time there.

MAGICAL HOME

  • 5 of 5
From the moment you pull into the drive way, you know have arrived on VACATION. This home has a fabulous wide open, spotless and relaxed feel. There has been no detail forgotten. The landscaping, crystal pool and mid-century decor transport you to old Palm Springs yet the updated kitchen and modern conveniences make it easy to kick back.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY/GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home over the Memorial Day Holiday weekend (extended until 05/30/12) and we loved every minute of our stay, the 6 of us were very confortable at this home and the great L shaped couch was amazing, they also had coffee (starbucks breakfast blend) and beautiful flowers (and they were my favorites); the backyard is gorgeous with an amazing and sparkling clean pool and jacuzzi, the bedrooms are well appointed and the beds are confortable an everything is so clean, the
garden is kept beautiful. The kitchen is beautiful and well equiped, we enjoyed the great barbeque area for those great outdoor meals overlooking at the beautiful pool/garden; Daria was a pleasure to work with and made the booking process very easy but professional at the same time. Thank you very much for letting us enjoy our long weekend at your beautiful property and we'll recommend you to friends and family members because we know they will be very happy at this beautiful retreat

AWESOME MODERN HOME

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this house over spring break for 4 nights with my husband, two boys, aged 17 and 19 and two dogs. We rent many homes and this house had it all. The kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil available including basic cooking ingredients. The grill was easy to use. Each spacious room was equipped with an additional fan in each closet. Plenty of towels and even bath essentials in each bathroom if we forgot anything. Location was close to downtown. Spacious backyard, nice views of mountains. Definitely will return.
