Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Baths With Private Yard

Celebrate Palm Springs in classic mid-century style. Built in 1959, this Jack Meiselman house is a luxury salute to the heyday of Mid-Century style. Whether you’re enjoying a sunset martini next to the pool or relaxing inside the cool designer décor, Casa Racquel promises an elegant and authentic Palm Springs experience.

Conveniently located in the Racquet Club Estates neighborhood (one of the first Palm Springs mid-century modern neighborhoods and the former playground of the Rat Pack), the house features a separate casita for extra guests, fire pit, media room, large outdoor area with outdoor shower, and breathtaking mountain views.

Designed and decorated with an upscale eye, this home was built to entertain. The main house features two beautifully decorated bedrooms with private entrances and are conveniently situated at separate sides of the house - allowing for the utmost privacy for vacationing couples. The master bedroom has a King size bed, and the second bedroom features a Queen. The Casita Suite is a separate poolside cottage featuring a King sized master suite with wet bar.

Lounge inside or entertain poolside; there are two indoor/outdoor dining areas, a grill, and loungers for the pool. Surrender to the peace of the desert night or turn up the record player - the house is on a quiet and secluded street. Other popular features include a spacious living room, a media room featuring HBO & Showtime and a Blu-ray player, a generous private yard (Swimsuits optional), a washer/dryer, a vintage wet bar, and a fully-equipped modern kitchen that comes with a Nespresso machine – perfect for that morning sip of coffee while soaking up the fabulous mountain views.

Palm Springs is so close yet so far away from it all. I can be in Paradise in about 90 minutes when I leave work for the weekend. And there's nothing like a quiet morning sipping coffee, dangling your feet in the pool and listening to the birds sing.

People in Palm Springs are happier because everyday is a sunny day and they want to be in Palm Springs.

It's easy to ride a bike and it has a small town feel. But it also boasts some of the best restaurants and nightlife as any big city. Plus a wonderful art museum and Joshua Tree National Park just a short drive away. It's a perfect get away.

Truly Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Of the three mid-century moderns we've now stayed in (including a beautifully restored Alexander in Las Palmas) this special property creates an opportunity for a truly memorable stay. We two baby boomers stayed the entire month of February with our
two married children and grandchildren joining us for ten days each.
The house is exceptionally spacious, bright and clean -lots of room to find a quiet spot when there's a large group. The media room is ideal for children to hang out. The galley kitchen (recently renovated) is well equipped for preparing meals and entertaining. The casita worked out very well for my wife and I as hosts, affording a completely private space away from the bustle of the main house. The yard, pool and spa are impeccably maintained. The fire pit is a great added amenity for after dark. Located at the top of a cul-de-sac this rental is exceptionally private yet close to all amenities (a supermarket, drugstore, fast-food outlets etc. is less than five minutes away by car). Also a 7/11, restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance. The owner is helpful and courteous - a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend this property. It will comfortably provide for up to three couples,or less with children.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the detailed review. We are happy to hear your experience at the house was memorable. It was a pleasure having such great guests. And thanks for the pool floaties.

Great weekend in a great home!

My stay here was great! We definitely enjoyed this extremely chic and fun home. The only problem was the pool didn't get warm but we had a blast anyway and still were able to go in the pool. The pictures do not do this house justice, this house was so cool on the inside and was very spacious and had everything we needed! The owner was so so easy to get ahold of and so helpful. I will definitely rent this home again and will recommend friends and family.

Owner's Response: So sorry about the pool heat. It's been repaired and I'm thankful it didn't damper your weekend.

Perfect Vacation Experience...A Dog's Dream

When we arrived to the property (weary from a long drive), we knew right away; we were home. Main house was clean and cool and even had Sinatra on vinyl (Palm Springs at its finest). Extremely comfortable environment for all of my family (Twin boys (25) and our daughter (26)+partner, we're mid 50's). The Casita was a perfect sanctuary for my daughter and her partner, and provided another space to explore for our 11y.o. Jack Russell Terrier, Cooper. We found the location perfect, running accessibility all around, walk to the main strip. Even with the proximity to town and amenities, the sound outside at night was non existent. The pool was a great central spot to spend our days, and the yard was huge! Coming down, we were very worried about our dog and whether he would fit in at this house (he is very picky and very territorial). This fear was put to rest on day 1, Cooper was running his little heart out in the massive back yard- we even taught him to use the dog door (Kind of) and he spend some time in the pool with the help of doggie life jacket found at the house. Bottom line, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the house and it could not have been an easier and stress free experience to set up and settle in. We would certainly recommend this house to any and everyone who is looking for a relaxing trip to Palm Springs. Moreover, to those with dogs, this place is a MUST. Cooper hasnt been the same since we've come back to Canada. Our family will remember this trip for a very long time and it couldnt have been possible without the house living up to (and surpassing) high expectations.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the house. Copper is a very sweet dog and I can't believe someone finally used the doggie life jacket! Thank you for being wonderful guests.

Absolutely ideal!

We rented this lovely house for four days while we in Palm Springs for the tennis tournament. Even though we had read the reviews and corresponded with the owner, we were still surprised by how fantastic it was! The neighborhood is so quiet, but close to everything. The pool was clean, just the right size, and heated. The house was super clean and well decorated - spare, but comfortable. We had three young boys with us and it was so nice to have a house without clutter and collectibles everywhere - much appreciated!

Others had mentioned that the kitchen was small so we were expecting something super tiny, but it was totally adequate. It's a galley kitchen, so yes, not super easy to have lots of cooks in there, but it had enough counter space to be servicable.

The master bedroom has a wonderful double-head shower - perfect for our boys to clean off after a long day in the pool. The beds were all very comfortable.

Overall we just loved this place and would certainly stay again!

girls trip paradise!

We chose Ann's home for our annual girls' getaway to Palm Springs and we couldn't be happier we did! Upon our request, we were allowed an early check-in which gave us even more time to enjoy this house. We loved the privacy, the mid-century fabulousness and the coffee. The openness of the property lent itself well to intimate conversations, as well as group shenanigans. Our only wish would have been for a larger kitchen, but I have to admit I certainly didn't mind having to stay out of the way while the other ladies whipped up magic meals for the group. I think we have finally found our perfect vacation home. Thank you so much, Ann for this unforgettable weekend.

Owner's Response: I'm glad I could accommodate your request for early check in. The galley style kitchen was popular in the 50's. Thank you for the kind words
