Overview

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Walk to restaurants and shopping or just hang out by the pool and enjoy the view

A classic 1961 Alexander home designed by Charles Dubois, this house is mostly original, except for the kitchen which underwent a sleek update a while back. While 1800 sf may be on the smaller side for this neighborhood, this house is big on charm and one of the best priced options you will find. The history of Vista Las Palmas is star-studded with celebrity homes, and is a Mecca for lovers of modernist architecture from all over the world. It's just a 10 or 15 minute walk to Palm Canyon Drive and Palm Springs' best and hippest restaurants and shopping.

Many vintage furnishings by George Nelson, Irving Harper, the Eameses etc. in the home set the mood for modern living. The living area is light-filled and 3 sets of sliders invite you out to the pool, which is in the south-facing backyard looking out to the mountains. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need.

The master bedroom is spacious, with a king-sized bed, TV and an ensuite bath which boasts a roman tub with a window wall to the magnificent morning view.

This house is updated with many modern conveniences like Wi-Fi, but it is not tricked out. The TV, located in the den, is 35'. The 30 ft pool is great and can be heated, but there is no spa/jacuzzi.

Needs Work

  • 2 of 5
The best thing about this property is its location within beautiful homes and its proximity to Palm Springs. The worst thing about this property is the unusable garage, junk on the side of the house, worn furniture, ashes in the fireplace, loose toilet seats, bathroom heater with no timer, disgusting grill, open electric wires, fire alarms with no batteries, and a distinctive smell about the house. Obviously, this property needs a lot of work before it can be considered adequate.

Owner's Response: The garage door, which broke over the summer is now fixed and the garage is fully usable. The 'junk' on the side of the house has been cleared.
The 'egg' chair seems to have been mauled by a pet and a replacement has been ordered. The ashes have been cleaned from the fireplace and the fire alarm battery, which had been removed without notice, has been replaced.
The outdoor gas grill is probably 40 years old and works fine. It was scoured before this tennants arrival, but the grate is black with time.

We loved this place. Excellent location, very tastefully remodeled and decorated. The only thing is the garage door which wasn't working properly but we were able to manage it without any damages.

Definitely the best Palm Springs Location

  • 5 of 5
What an inviting home! We stayed for three nights and did not want for anything. The home was tastefully furnished and comfortable to use. Everything was in working order. The owner considers pets, which was a huge bonus. I would like to mention that the air-conditioning worked very well and kept this mid-century home cool as the temperature reached well above 100. Restaurants and shops are a 7 minute walk away. The neighborhood is safe. We will definitely return!

Great house for out-of-town guests

  • 4 of 5
I rented this property for some family members visiting from the East Coast. It worked perfectly for them. They enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, and short walk to uptown shops and restaurants. They loved the house and would happily return on their next visit to Palm Springs. The owner was helpful and responsive to all my inquiries. I'm happy to recommend this property.

Very satisfied

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property in late April. It was our first time in Palm Springs and we had an absolutely wonderful time. As other reviewers have noted, this property hasn’t been completely “tricked out” – but in my opinion, that is part of its charm. The house is very tastefully decorated with modernist art and furniture. It has a gas stove, barbecue and all the dishes you would ever need. The location is excellent – a long-ish walk or short drive into town. The owner was very nice to deal with and it’s an absolute bargain for Vistas Las Palmas. We would be very happy to stay here again in the future. Thanks!
