Overview

Palm Springs Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

This unique studio is located in the historic Racquet Club Garden Villas which was designed by the famed mid-century architect, William F. Cody. This is the place where the most famous of the film stars and celebrities gathered while in Palm Springs. This lovely 500 square foot condo was completely re- done from floor to ceiling with all new appliances and furnishing in August of 2012. It is in a gated community of 37 units and is located just minutes from the airport and downtown Palm Springs with it excellent restaurants and trendy shops.

It can sleep up to four. In the large living room there is a queen size Murphy bed that folds into the wall when not in use and in addition there is a comfortable new L shaped Sofa that makes into a double bed. All linens are provided.

This unit is unique in that it has a built in wood burning fireplace.

Experience the unique art of famed Adam Stone.

The post and beam architecture with the floor to ceiling glass walls are William F. Cody signature look which breaks the distinction between indoors and outdoors and makes the unit appear much larger.

The grounds designed by Phil Shipley are beautiful with trees everywhere, gardens and a soothing a wandering stream. The view of the San Jacinto Mountains is spectacular and the extra-large swimming pool and spa are very special.

It has a new full size stainless steel kitchen, complete with dishes, utensils, pots & pans, bowls, icemaker and an outdoor BBQ for your cooking and meal preparation convenience. There is also a private washer and dryer for your convenience.

There is a new flat screen TV and WiFi Internet.

About Wayne Headrick

My wife and I who have been married for 44 years live in Palm Springs. Until we retired five years ago, we owned a fine art printing studio and a 10,000 sq. ft. art gallery in Palos Verdes, California. As you can see from the photos the unit is extensively decorated with the works of several well know artists. Before starting the printing studio and the art gallery, we lived in Europe and India for many years. I am an American and my wife is German born. She speaks German, English and French.

We manage the units ourselves and look forward to meeting and greeting you.

Wayne Headrick purchased this studio in 2012

Why Wayne Headrick chose Palm Springs

For many years we lived at the beach and bought a unit in the Garden Villas to come on the weekends when the weather was not so nice on the coast. We grew to love the desert and retired here five years ago.

What makes this studio unique

In our opinion the Garden Villas of the Racquet Club is the most unique and beautiful place in all of the desert. In the Garden Villas there are only 37 units. It is a gated community and this historical place has magnificent grounds, an extra large pool with a fountain and a spa.

Natural Comfort

  • 5 of 5

My five-night stay here was indescribably restorative. The studio itself is so light and airy that the space felt open and generous, rather than cramped, as one might expect. One of the highlights of my visit was a daily stroll through the beautifully designed grounds of the development. The whole place felt welcoming, comforting, and serene. Everything you need (if not already provided by the hosts) can be found within a short drive. I also have to echo those who've praised the comfort of the Murphy bed. I'm a picky sleeper and this mattress was exactly what I needed. The bathroom and kitchen were also very handsome and nicely laid out. I can't wait to stay again the next time I'm able to get to PS.

We rented this lovely condo for the month of February 2015. The entire condo complex along with the people there are wonderful. The location is in a great location with great views of the mountains. The pool and hot area is excellent! Wayne and Herta were great to deal with. The condo is stocked with eveything you'll need for your stay. Hope to return to Palm Springs in a few years and would definitely stay here again.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from spending one week in this studio condo. This was our first time to Palm Springs and we loved the location of the condo. It is about 5 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from downtown. The condo is clean, equipped with everything a traveler requires (even a hair dryer) and a heated pool. The Murphy bed is very comfortable and as it can be so easily stored in the cupboard it makes the condo very spacious. Thanks again to the owners for sharing their condo with us. We hope to return someday.

Couples quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Palm Springs and it won't be our last! Excellent experience dealing with the owners, Wayne took care of the business of booking (deposit returned the day after we left), and Herta greeted us on our first day - and she was only a cell phone away if we needed anything, but we didn't. The condo was fully stocked with everything we could need. What we liked the most was the natural light, close to the pool and entrance of the complex - however it was quiet which was exactly what we wanted. The back patio was large enough for a round table and 4 chairs as well as a cute Weber BBQ. Kitchen was stocked as well there was a small washer and dryer. Living room/dining area was very open, large screen TV and a Murphy bed that tucked away when not in use. The pictures shown are exactly as the unit was. Will definetly stay again and rent from Wayne and Herta - thank you for a great week!

Great studio for a couple or single person

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week in the condo. Very comfortable - slept on the Murphy bed and pull out couch. Both were great. Owners were helpful and accommodating. Location is a bit of a hidden gem - great pool and spa. Would rent this unit again.

Great time in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this unit to anyone that wants to come and stay for a while. It is in a quiet and beautiful complex. It is close enough to downtown and lots of restaurants ... not walking distance but a very short drive. The owners are wonderful and only as attentive as you need them to be. Thank you for a wonderful 3 weeks.
