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!

About Ron

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

Why Ron chose Palm Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful home to spend a week in! Loved the pool and backyard. Loved being close to downtown and shopping but still had a peaceful neighborhood. The house was nicely equipped with all the necessities! Terry was great meeting us at the house and walking us through the pool/spa system etc. All our expectations were met. Will definitely recommend to friends and family! Thank you!

Beautiful, private, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time with my husband and our 2 dogs. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated and has everything you need. We spent a lot of time in the pool and in the backyard. Its also very private and secure for our dogs. Stores and restaurants are very close and convenient. Ron and Terry were great; communication was awesome and quick and they were both very thorough and detailed. We had a great time and will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much. It is guests like you that make having this vacation house worthwhile. We try hard to make it exactly the kind of vacation house we would want to rent, so knowing we succeeded is incredibly valuable, and so heartwarming!

Great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend here with family and we had a lovely time. The house is totally functional and well decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook in a couple nights. We especially loved that we were able to bring our dogs along with us. They had a great time running around in the yard while we took advantage of the pool and hot tub. The house is a short drive to groceries and restaurants, but is situated on a nice quiet street. This was the perfect place for us to get together and spend some quality time relaxing and catching up. We would love to return here in the future!

Super stylish and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was fabulous! First of all, it's a gorgeous property that fits right into Palm Springs architectural history -- and the decor is spot on to match. In many ways I felt like I was staying in a home that may have been featured in a magazine. However, it was also super comfortable. Comfy beds, nice linens, tons of towels. The pool and hot tub made for great afternoon breaks from the action and we spent several hours a day just enjoying the outside space. The kitchen was totally equipped and the open floor plan made it wonderful to hang out and chat while preparing drinks and meals. My one regret is that we did not have time to take the bikes out for a spin -- they looked like great, comfortable cruisers and the neighborhood (heck all of Palm Springs) was super bike friendly. Finally, the location of this home is perfect. Just a couple of miles to downtown Palm Springs, super close to a grocery store, and also near the highway which made it easy to get to Joshua Tree and other surrounding towns. Really, I'd just love to move into this home!

Owner's Response: Wow thank you so much for your lovely review Kerry! I'm so glad the house worked for you and your friends, especially as you were coming all the way from a very deep winter in Boston. It was great having you, and you'll just having to come back. Next visit you can make time for using our bikes!

A beautiful, mid century modern delight

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very attentive, quickly replying to our email inquiries. The home has three quite and nice bedrooms. The living room and kitchen area were great for family gatherings, allowing for easy access to the pool and outside entertaining area. We had an amazing and relaxing New Year's weekend with our family. I would highly recommend Ron and Sandra's beautiful mid century oasis.

I will be back soon.
