TOUR:

ENTER the front door and notice the glossy white porcelain floors, white walls, and glass doors that run throughout the house. If you like white, bright and clean, this is it.

TURN right to enter the spacious livingroom, diningroom and kitchen. The high ceilings will catch your eye, as will the awesome view of the mountains through the celestory windows.

WALK to the livingroom, pass by the teak bar cart, and plop yourself onto the 1964 blue sofa. You'll notice the mid-century modern sofa chairs, a beautiful wood credenza, original mid-century lamps, a brass wall sculpture by C. Jere, and plenty of Trina Turk pillows. Take first dibs on the leather chair and ottoman as it has the best views in the house through the sliding glass door. Modern is mixed with the old by way of a 39' flat-screen TV (with cable & a free netflix subscription), DVD player, wifi, printer, MP3 compatible stereo, glass table and shag rug. Peruse the tourist books and retro CDs.

HEAD to the kitchen and pull up a stainless steel stool at the island while you watch your friends make you pancakes on the gas stove, or maybe a margarita in the blender? This full size kitchen has complimentary basics such as tea, coffee, filters, cooking oil, salt, pepper, plastic and aluminum wrap, sandwich bags, and paper towels. It's stocked with plenty of pots, pans, baking dishes, serving dishes, mixing bowls, baking sheets and muffin tins. Appliances include Cuisinart grinder/coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven, blender.

CHECK out the adjacent diningroom next to the kitchen and admire the collection of bright mid-century original ceramics on the teak sideboard, the mid-century modern Danish teak dining table with colourful placemats, and the matching Danish teak sofa. Sit your butt down and enjoy the patio and pool view for a few minutes.

NOW WALK to the other side of the house to view the bedrooms and bathrooms. The bedrooms come with Trina Turk bedspreads, beach towels, bath towels, extra linens, laundry baskets, reading lamps, and bright rugs. You'll also find a extra aero-bed in the closet. Bathrooms come with toilet paper, shampoo and conditioner.

INTO the first bedroom you'll find a queen bed, large closet, mid-century modern chair, table & dresser. The second bedroom has a full/double bed, large closet, and it also works as an office with a mid-century modern desk, chair & lamp. Both of these bedrooms have private views of palm trees.

ACROSS the hall is the washer and dryer, with detergent and drying rack. It is adjacent to the first bathroom which is brightly lit from the skylight, and has a full size tub and shower.

WALK to the end of the hall to find the master bedroom. It features mid-century modern furniture, a large wall of mirrored closets and sliding glass doors that lead to the private backyard. It has a 29' flat screen TV and DVD player, as well as an en suite bathroom with shower, low shiny porcelain tub from 1959, and a convenient doored entry to the backyard.

FINALLY...tour the backyard. You'll love the size and privacy. Grab a nap on the lounger under the umbrella or float in the pebble tec pool while enjoying your drink. As evening comes, you'll laugh with friends around the dining table, enjoying the BBQ from the gas grill. And after dinner, you might jump into the hot spa, or sit around the fire pit roasting marshmallows.

NEXT UP? Come see it for real!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We could not have chosen a better place to stay and also to have our wedding and reception at. Would love to have held the ceremony outside but it was extremely hot. So we moved the dining table and chairs and had the ceremony in the dining room.



The house was very comfortable and we didn't have to bring all the things that we did. We cleaned the pool daily so we could use due to the winds that were there almost every day. We also tried to leave the house as we found it as this is our way.



We would also use your home again if we were to come back to Palm Springs. We have talked about it. I forgot to put a note in your guest book but you may copy this message to it if you choose. Thank you for returning our deposit so quickly. Take care and I will keep your details and will recommend to others.

Speaks english

I am scientist, who along with my wife, enjoys our dogs, travel, running, hiking, biking, entertaining friends, and spending time with my children (who are now off at university).

Ron purchased this house in 2013

The mid-century modern aesthetic is wonderful but also this particular house appealed because of the designer, the famous neighborhood, and the high ceilings and mountain views from the celestory windows. An added bonus was the larger size than most of this vintage.

It just 'spoke to us' as cliche as that might sound. But we are delighted when guests show up and go 'oh wow' just like we did when we first saw it.

It's new! This is a newly renovated rental. You get to experience the best of new sheets, towels, and basically everything in this house!

Fabulous location: Quiet street but you can walk in about 10 mins to 8 restaurants and bars, and it's a short drive or bike ride to downtown Palm Springs.

Mid-century ambiance: The interior, although entirely updated in 2013, pays homage to its 1959 origins, with almost exclusively teak mid-century modern furniture and mid-century modern art. Put Frank Sinatra on, mix a martini from the bar cart, and you can drift back 55 years.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I did a last minute booking and a big thanks goes out to Ron, Sandra, and Terry! I wasn't disappointed in the house and/or amenities. Communication was excellent between all parties. My family especially appreciated the interior cleanliness and private setting for cooling off in the pool. The house is awesome and the price point (value) can't be beat! I will definitely book again and I informed my east coast family members about staying at 25palmtrees when visiting Palm Springs in the future.

Excellent place for a girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I needed a place to hang out by a pool, get some sun, and catch up. This was the perfect place for all of that. They had everything we needed for the perfect trip. And we really appreciated how pet friendly the owners were. Our dog had the time of her life. I'd definitely use this place again.

Truly enjoyed your property in Palm Springs. Your manager Terry met us and gave us a tour of the house.
The danish inspired mid century furniture was delightful and the layout was very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with all the cookware, dishes, seasonings, utensils and glassware that we needed. The air conditioner, pool, access to netflix and the reference book of information on Palm Springs- just great. Wow thank you.
We left well rested. Thanks again.

If There Were 6 Stars--This Wonderful MCM Home Would Deserve It!!!

  • 5 of 5
We picked this this lovely MCM Alexander home for a work retreat and were amazed at the care and thought that went into making our stay so productive and enjoyable! The quiet and peaceful environment helped us focus on our projects, working the entire time, and get inspired with several new ideas. There were simply too many insightful touches (from the wonderfully-stocked kitchen and beautifully-clean, well-appointed everything) to list them all. The historic neighborhood of incredible Mid-Century Modern homes is a great location and felt both comfortable and safe. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Terry who set the tone for our four days at 25PalmTrees. He's terrifically knowledgeable about the area and gave us great suggestions for eateries, shops and more. Next trip, we will aim to have more time for fun and enjoying more of the gorgeous pool and spa. Whether you're seeking a creative retreat for work or just a lovely home away from home for relaxing in the desert, this is it--we can't wait to go back!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5
We had a nice stay and really enjoyed this home. The photos depict the place very accurately. Palm springs may not strike everyone as a bike-friendly city, but it was nice, actually, to have the use of beach-cruiser bikes, which were very handy for roaming around the neighborhood and going downtown. One saturday we biked down to the PS art museum, which has a nice collection of art and outdoor sculptures. We liked that this rental had a large open kitchen and also had some features that were conducive to doing some work (desk in a bedroom and a printer). The local concierge, Terry, was also very helpful.

Reprieve from winter

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying at a "home" instead of resort or hotel. It was wonderful. Very relaxing. The pool and hot tub were in use every day. Palm Springs is a fun town and I would definitely visit again and stay in this fun home.
