CHARMING 1938 SPANISH BUNGALOW IN MOVIE COLONY EAST

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Location: Movie Colony East (formerly Ruth Hardy Park) Palm Springs, Central, Pa

Located on a quiet residential street in the heart of Palm Springs, “just around the corner” from Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs house, this 1930s Spanish style bungalow is simply darling. The home features 1200 sq ft of living with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a gracious living room with fireplace, high ceiling, decorative wall niche, and 42” flat screen TV, a dining nook, a fully equipped kitchen and an enclosed sun porch with entry to a very private backyard with a beautiful newly renovated Pebble Tec pool. A convenient laundry area is adjacent to the kitchen and provides additional access to the backyard.

Old Spanish charm exists throughout the home, which while updated retains many of it’s original period design features lovingly maintained including kitchen and bathroom ceramic tiles and cabinets, Saltillo tile floor, and arched doorways. The dining and living areas boasts plantation shutters, original art and contemporary furnishings all in warm brown and red tones.

Quiet outdoor spaces abound with plenty of privacy; enjoy rocking on the front verandah in the gated front yard with palm trees and burgeoning bougainvillea or relax in the secluded backyard in the canopied outdoor living space by the pool. In the backyard, enjoy the views of the San Jacinto Mountain Range with the twinkle of the Palm Springs tramway by night! Cook inside or grill outside on a Professional gas grill.

Small enough for one but big enough for two couples to share with plenty of privacy.

The home is in a prime neighborhood on a quiet residential street within walking distance to downtown, Ruth Hardy Park and near the Desert Regional Medical Center. This is a great neighborhood for walks or bike rides, enjoying the many architectural styles of homes from mid-century, modern, to Spanish revival. Night life, great restaurants, spas, shopping, hiking trails, bike paths, yoga studios, Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and golf courses are just minutes away. Also enjoy street and art festivals and special events such as the Palm Springs International Movie festival, and Palm Springs Modernism Week.

I am a single owner and currently reside in the Bay Area. I purchased the home in 2005 to spend weekends and vacations with friends. I've furnished the house filled with creature comforts, comfortable furniture and original art as if I was living there full time. I enjoy coming out to the house as often as I can. I love the proximity of the house to Ruth Hardy Park and the short walk into town to shop or eat at some of my favorite restaurants. I love the outdoors especially hiking and have discovered many trails in and near Palm Springs.

Amy Patick purchased this house in 2005

I had always visited Palm Springs and decided I wanted to purchase a house to establish a more permanent home base. Palm Springs has so much to offer culturally, from celebrity tours, international movie festivals and the Palm Springs Modernism Week, all on the backdrop of the magical big wide open and peaceful serenity of the desert. There's nothing quite like it!

It was love at first sight with this 1938 Spanish bungalow. I've updated it through the years but have tried to retain the original period features.This house is so close to everything yet with the benefit of a quiet residential neighborhood. Everyone is so friendly. The privacy of the property both in the front and backyards are very special and the soothing ambiance of the home interior leave me feeling rested and at peace.

FUNKY AND RETRO

  • 4 of 5
First off, Amy was a pleasure. Always nice to develop a rapport with the property owner. The house was super private, pool was great and the rates were competitive. Being that it is quite old, certain amenities are either non-existent or nominal. This is not a criticism, merely fact. I would not only recommend this house but I would personally rent it again.

EASE ON BACK INTO THE 1950'S

What a great, efficient vacation house. Perfect combination of retro '50's with all the modern conveniences we can't live without. The very private pool and spa areas are one of the nicest features. We will probably return and have already referred Amy's house to family members. You won't be disappointed!

VINTAGE CHARM!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this vintage home with extraordinary outside spaces. We spent hours sitting on the patio enjoying the perfect weather, our Aussie loved the fenced yard, and the hot tub was a perfect way to end many of our days. The location was perfect for enjoying Palm Springs' many restaurants and attractions. We took full advantage of Ruth Hardy Park and the neighborhood for regular walks. Amy was a joy to work with, our only regret is that we didn't book two months.

SO HARD TO LEAVE THIS WONDERFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed the month of January and absolutely loved everything about this charming home. The neighborhood is quiet, and wonderful for early morning walks, along with close proximity to downtown either by walking or car. The yard is beautifully landscaped with a gorgeous pool and hot tub in back. Comfortable beds, wonderful kitchen, easy access to Wifi, great living room for lounging, and just an all around clean, wonderfully decorated home. And Palm Springs itself is magical with its mountains and palm trees. We never ran out of things to do whether it was the open air market on Saturdays, the street fair on Thursday evenings, the FREE art museum on Thursday evenings, the canyon hikes where we actually spotted a long-horned sheep, wonderful restaurants and plenty of relaxation. We will be returning again to this very place next year.

WINTER IN PALM SPRINGS

  • 4 of 5
We had a very relaxing time at this quaint Spanish style home! The home's architectural details make you feel like you've gone back in time. We got a lot of relaxation in, lounging under the awning and enjoying the hot tub! The fenced front and back yards were well loved by our little fur ball - he just couldn't get enough of the wonderful scents of the desert.

We loved walking around the neighborhood and especially loved the proximity to N. Palm Canyon Drive - home to mid-century modern furniture, art, and tchochke stores! There was no snow this winter (yet), so our trip up the aerial tram was clear, blue, and warm! That's a trip worth taking. Also enjoyable is the Palm Springs Art Museum. It may be small but has a mighty collection!

We cooked most of our meals in the well-appointed kitchen - we weren't lacking for any utensils or grill tools! Overall, a great space and we enjoyed our time!

We loved our stay in Palm Springs! The house was very charming and worked out perfectly for 2 couples. We had a few small issues that came up and the owner was wonderful about getting them resolved immediately. We would definitely rent this place again, great location!
