GORGEOUS MID-CENTURY OASIS. SPECIAL SUMMER PRICING FOR MID-WEEK!

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

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

Your mid-century oasis awaits you!

Relax and luxuriate in this beautiful desert get-away in historic and mid-century modern Racquet Club Estates. Whether floating in the salt water pool, watching San Jacinto Mountain ignite in a spectacular sunrise, cooking on the built-in gas barbecue island, conversing around the fire pit, or reading under one of the large mesquite trees, you will forget about your worries of day-to-day life. A 6-person spa was added for your ultimate pleasure.

This 1,750 square foot historic 'Alexander' home has been expanded from its original 1959 (1,220 sq/ft) size and offers a large flowing master suite with a cozy reading nook, large walk-thru closet, private bath, and doors to different outdoor living spaces.

The living room boasts 10 foot ceilings with upper windows gazing up to the majestic peaks of San Jacinto. A large glass dining table offers comfortable seating for eight. You'll agree that this great-room expansion is truly 'great'!

The private 10,000 sq/ft grounds offer a rich composition of lush lawns and desert-scape and a back yard that is walled for ultimate privacy. Illumination in the evening by soft landscape lighting creates a glowing backdrop for sublime evening enjoyment in any of the three remarkable outdoor seating areas, including an outdoor dining set that has seating for up to 6. The fire pit table will warm your family and friends on chilly desert night.

The entire home has been freshly painted and newly appointed and optimized for your pleasure with a well stocked kitchen, new appliances (including front-loading washer and dryer), new living room and bedroom furniture, and new mattresses and linens: including 600 thread count sheets and down comforters on every bed (1 King, 2 Queens).

In the living room you'll find a 5.1 surround sound system that connects a Bluray/DVD player, Apple TV, cable box (with about 20 free movie channels - all the HBO, Cinamax and Showtime channels), and Internet services (Netflix, Hulu, Internet Radio) to a huge 55' LCD TV.

You can also retreat to the master bedroom which boasts its own 32' flatscreen with cable box (with all premium channels) in a rich armoire. The other two bedrooms also have 32' and 22' LCD TVs with cable for your entertainment pleasure.

Being someone who loves his vacation time, I am dedicated to being a terrific property manager. I want your vacation to be memorable for all the right reasons.

VRBO guests are terrific to work with because they fully appreciate the benefits of a vacation home rental for privacy, comfort, and convenience that only a well organized property can offer.

Palm Springs is an amazing place and I am thrilled when visitors select it as their vacation destination. The pace is laidback and the people are friendly. I spend as much time in the area as I can.

Mark purchased this house in 2012

I created this vacation house to be everything that I would want when I am on vacation: great outdoor livin' and grillin', cozy great room, and a modern entertainment center for movie nights or for just being lazy in the afternoon. I looked at a lot of properties before selecting this one.

I was sold on Racquet Club Estates because it is an amazing neighborhood. The houses are special, and so are the neighbors. The nights are dark and quiet and the outline of the San Jacinto mountains against dusk sky is just beautiful. Watching the last tram inch down the mountain side is a regular reminder of the adventures that await you each day in Coachella Valley.

Another benefit of Racquet Club Estates is that is located the 2nd major intersection after coming into town. After a long drive to the desert, its great that the minute you hit town, you're there! And downtown is just another couple of miles further down the road. Dining and shopping could hardly be more convenient.

Freshly painted, newly furnished, and sparking clean, this great vacation property also offers you a huge backyard for entertaining. You love the large grassy area shaded by a wonderful tree. Talk about relaxing: just pull a chair out under the tree and gaze at the mountains while enjoying the cool shade mixed with a warm breeze. The patio area is made of pavers, which is so much more comfortable and inviting than cement. The huge saltwater pool is deep and cool for those hot summer days. An added bonus is that the pool is shaded in the late afternoon.

When the mid-day sun is too hot for you, head inside where interior is cozy and open. While the Racquet Club Estates properties were built with 1.225 sq/ft, my property has been expanded to about 1,750 sq/ft. The master bedroom is large and provides a great escape from the summer sun. Sit in the reading nook and mediate while looking at the mountains, reading a book, or just napping. Treat yourself. You've earned it.

There are two separate setting areas in the expansive great room, and a large dining area, with seating for 8. Rearrange the seating a little and you can easily seat everyone in your party around the 55 inch flat screen TV Bring your Ipod/Ipad and connect to AppleTV, or watch the pay/premium channels offered by HBO, Showtime, and Cinamax. There are a bunch of them and they are all included. The bluray player and internet media (such as netflix) rounds out the entertainment options.

Congratulations on selecting Palm Springs as your vacation destination. You will have a terrific time. And if my property matches your vacation requirements, I will do my best to make your stay is one to remember.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5
This place was the easily the best house my friends and I have rented in Palm Springs, and the pictures don't do it justice. It's spacious, well taken care of, and most importantly, CLEAN. Pool was heated, hot tub was new and the backyard was huge and well-maintained. All the appliances, including grill worked well. Mark, the owner, obviously takes pride in this house and rents to people who respect his property. He was great to work with and easy to contact. We will be returning!

Great outdoor desert living

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect location for relaxing and catching up with friends. 90% of the time was spent outside. Great layout with BBQ, shaded grass area and pool. Used every inch.

Mark was really responsive, but in reality we did not need anything. Very clean and comfortable house. Everything you need is available and organized.

Would like to stay here again.

Fabulous find.

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in this house with some friends for a couple of days. Backyard is awesome, pool is perfect. House is very nice. Very open floor plan, very cozy feel. Feels like an actual home rather than a vacation rental. Easy to get to, close to the grocery store. Very convenient. Mark (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with, allowed us to check in early, made everything very easy and gave us a lot of information on places to go and places to eat. Would definitely recommend, and would definitely stay again. Thank you, Mark!

BEAUTIFUL DESSERT OASIS!

  • 5 of 5
A group of 6 of us stayed at this property in April 2014. This house is gorgeous and is exactly as pictured and described. We opted to heat the pool and were pleased that we did as it is a nice, deep pool. We used the BBQ one night as well and it worked perfectly. The house is fully stocked - including an abundance of appliances, cooking spices, kitchen and laundry cleaning supplies, etc. More than enough towels, extra sheets and blankets, etc. The owner was super easy to work with and went out of his way to make us feel welcome by being quick to respond to inquiries and quick to thank us for staying. This house is a steal of a price and we would definitely book here again. Seriously... Don't look any further. Book this house!

Absolutely no complaints.

  • 5 of 5
The other 5 star reviews are true. This is a great rental property. The house feels incredibly spacious, very clean, and modern. The pool is large enough to swim laps, and the jacuzzi was so relaxing. Instructions are thorough and clear, and Mark was very easy to reach, yet respected our privacy. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and all laundries felt fresh. The kitchen is very well stocked. And the entertainment system was more than we expected. Overall we were extremely happy with this rental.
