BUTTERFLY ALEXANDER AWAITS YOU

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

This is a three bedroom two bath home. Alexander mid century retro-ed delight has very private pool and deck. This is a modern home that you will love. Vacation Rental House, Mid-Century Modern, Alexander, Racquet Club Estates, modern ranch, Palm Springs, North Palm Springs, Retro, Updated, Vintage, Hot Property!

This Mid-Century Gem is 'JUST RIGHT' in every way.

The look, the feel, the privacy, the design, the service!

You can find more expensive homes that are comparable, but why? At these rates, we're confident the Butterfly-Alexander represents the overall BEST VAUE and OVERALL VACATION EXPERIENCE from booking to saying goodbye.

Happy Chic living all to your own! Ultra clean and private, getting away at this Mid-Century Classic is like checking into a mini-Parker Hotel, but even better!

The artist/owner has put her special touch on every room of this house, designed by William Krisel, AIA and Dan Palmer for the Alexander Development in 1960 in the Racquet Club Estates neighborhood. There's the classic post and beam construction, updated with polished concrete floors. Metal sculpture, original artwork, and vintage and contemporary furnishings blend together in a blissful way.

Your private paradise continues outside where the large backyard features big, comfy chaises, and a wall of ficus shut out the noise and neighbors. The saline pool is smooth on your skin, no harsh chlorine odor. And there's nothing more relaxing, especially at night, than sitting in the hot tub and soaking in the spectacular mountain views. Plasma TV’s in living and each bedroom, and WiFi are among the modern amenities. Spoil yourself.

About JetSetter Vacation Homes

We welcome you into our sun-filled paradise, The Butterfly-Alexander.

We are Dave and Sharon Agnor, homeowners, and we spend most of our time in Portland, Oregon. If you know anything about Portland, it's a great city but it's true what they say about the rain. And what's actually harder to handle is how it can stay gray and overcast for weeks on end. Don't get us wrong, we love Portland. But we have the best of both worlds by having this great place to escape to for sunshine and style! As Dave, a psychologist, likes to say: 'It's cheaper than therapy!'

JetSetter Vacation Homes purchased this house in 2002

Why JetSetter Vacation Homes chose Palm Springs

The butterfly roof reminds us of the 50's, rocket-ships and the Jetson's of our childhood. Today, it's where we go to have complete privacy, pool or hot tub depending on the season, and what better place than Palm Springs? Our initial attraction to the area is the desert city itself, with the sunny weather, and uniquely dense mid-century architecture all over downtown; dozens of fabulous restaurants and one of a kind shops are 4 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Our home is private mid-century cool. Each room is modern, carefully designed with color and art, but a museum it's not; it's feels like you just want to stay in and go nowhere else. The pool is saline waters and heated. We don't feel or sniff chlorine on our skin. From your chaise lounge or bedrooms you will view the great San Jacinto mountain rise straight up. At night, you can watch the gondola traverse to the top. No street lights mean the stars are clear and bright. Wonderment and a clear head.

Perfect home for a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I looked everywhere to find the perfect vacation home that's affordable but luxurious, after looking everywhere we finally found the butterfly Alexander, and I'm glad we did! It's the perfect home to relax with friends and family. Our whole stay was perfect thanks to Tanya, she accommodated us with all our needs and answered every question we had. She made us feel very welcomed and I would definitely book this house again hopefully next summer! Thank you Tanya!

Pleasant Stay in PS

  • 5 of 5
Nice little Butterfly House on north side of PS. Place was neat and clean. Well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the hot tub. Unfortunately, the weather was cold and we did not get a chance to use the pool. But we had signed up for the extra fee for pool heating which when, immediately upon our arrival, we let the owner/manager know that we would not be using the pool, the gladly canceled the pool heating and refunded our fee. Great Service. For a quick trip to PS we would gladly stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hot tub when cool, or a heated saline pool when it's hot, (or very hot), there's is almost always a way to enjoy the outdoors at the Butterfly. Thanks for sharing your experience with our property manager Tanya, she does aim to please amd make it fair!

four Days in Palm Springs

  • 3 of 5
This property has the benefit of a great and quiet location and a lovely garden space and pool. It is spacious and well appointed. But it does have the lived in feel of a family beach house which is tired around the edges and could do with a spruce up and attention spent on redecoration. If you're looking for something very laid back, for example for a family with kids where you don't want to worry, then this is fine. We had a nice time here, but we had hoped for something a little more smart and well cared for. The owner was attentive and responsive to any issues that arose at check in.

Owner's Response: How DO we keep the place looking fresh year after year? We do try to be responsive to guest comments when something actionable is noticed. But otherwise, we do frequently upgrade the home, such as: new wall to wall carpet with modern design in all bedrooms, resurface the pool surrounding decks, new hot tub lid, new area rug in the living area, new Toto toilets in the bath rooms, new modern table, chairs and barstools, and this is in the last 12 months. Glad you enjoyed our home, hope you feel comfortable enough to return on your next visit to Palm Springs!

Wonderful Home - Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed her and loved the place. Everything we needed was there, the home itself was done wonderfully and the artwork added just that special touch. We loved the very comfy lounge chairs and the extra seating area set up just to enjoy the late afternoon sun.
The area is great and very close to town, although not walking distance, that didn't matter because everything was a very short drive and frankly we never wanted to leave this adorable home.
We loved this place and look forward to returning very soon.
Thanks!
