Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6-7

Experience this architecturally significant mid-century modern house designed by renowned California architects Palmer & Krisel and developer Robert Alexander.

This fully renovated (2014) vacation house is located in Palm Springs' famous Racquet Club Estates neighborhood, home to the legendary Racquet Club Resort where the Hollywood elite and movie stars escaped for a weekend retreat of relaxation in the desert.

The home features highly sought-after desert mid-century modern architecture, including a spacious open floor plan, dramatic vaulted high ceilings unique to the iconic “butterfly” roofline design, exposed tongue-and-groove ceiling beams, and floor-to-ceiling “walls of glass” that stream an abundance of sunlight throughout the indoor living areas. Each room throughout the house has been renovated to showcase the home’s stunning features. Highlights include a fully renovated open-air kitchen, that features brand new stainless steel appliances, pro-grade gas cooktop, Keurig Platinum café brewer, and auto-closing drawers well-stocked with all the essential cooking gadgets.

The main living, dining and kitchen areas provide unobstructed views of the mountains and expansive private garden and pool through the “zero-clearance” floor-to-ceiling windows, which blur the distinction between the indoors and outdoors.

The expanded master bedroom features a gas fireplace, flat panel wall-mounted HDTV and private patio. The en suite master bath that features dual vanity sinks and a luxury step-down oversized shower with glass tiles. Longer-term guests will appreciate the abundant custom storage features available in the walk-in closet.

Throughout the house, guests will appreciate the all brand new modernist furnishings inspired by famous mid-century modern designer icons. Highlights include a curved low-back sofa, Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair, and raised modern beds with brand new luxury mattresses and hotel quality linens in each bedroom.

Outside, sun lovers can soak up the desert sun in the desirable western-facing private back yard. Indulge in the brand new Pebble-Tec® swimming pool with 'legacy size' dimensions, which features walk-in stair-step access and variable depths. After a refreshing swim, relax in the adjustable chaise loungers underneath an oasis of palm trees, surrounded by resort-style landscaping.

The private back yard features an expansive detached outdoor cabana with kitchenette for enjoying the Palm Springs indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The kitchen/bar area features includes a Jenn-Air chef’s gas grill, true-gas cooktop burner, and bar/prep sink. You and your guests can dine al-fresco style in the lighted cabana at the outdoor dining table, and afterwards retreat to the brand new outdoor club style sectional lounge sofa.

After sunset, the entire private back yard and palm trees are dramatically illuminated with professional resort-designed ground lighting. Mix up a cool retro cocktail in the blender in the outdoor kitchen, and then gaze at the evening stars while relaxing around the custom built-in gas fire pit or in the resort style spa with therapeutic water jets.

About Michael & Scott (Owners)

We've had the pleasure of sharing our first vacation home in Palm Springs since 2009 (http://www.vrbo.com/270038). This is our second home in the desert and we are excited to share it with both our returning guests and new guests. Our philosophy is to provide each guest with courteous and personalized responsive service.

Michael & Scott (Owners) purchased this house in 2013

Why Michael & Scott (Owners) chose Palm Springs

As mid-century modern enthusiasts, we jumped at the opportunity to purchase this iconic “Butterfly” Alexander-built mid-century modern house. This is our second house in the desert, and we’re thrilled to share it with our guests. We spent over 8 months fully renovating this amazing house and property to its original splendor. With the exception of the frame and exterior stucco siding, the house is essentially all new.

What makes this house unique

This home is a highly sought-after authentic Alexander-built 'butterfly' roofline house. The main living areas and private back yard boast breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountain range. Just a short walk away is the steps away is the beautifully landscaped Victoria Park.

A beautiful home in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5
We stayed (2 adults) for 2 weeks from 28th Sept 2014.

Firstly - the initial process of booking.

We found dealing with the owners, Scott & Michael, incredibly easy and the secure booking capability offered gave us great comfort.

All the questions we had prior to arrival about the facilities in the home, its location etc were answered promptly and clearly. We also had great communication with Scott & Michael during our stay with damage deposit refunded immediately.

Secondly – The house itself.

It is truly fabulous! Driving up to it I felt like arriving home as I had viewed the website pictures so many times prior to our arrival. The layout and amenities are as exactly as described on the website and we wanted for nothing. A beautiful welcome pack and restaurant gift voucher are a lovely thought and were appreciated.

The house was on arrival extremely clean and met all our expectations. The beds are really comfy. Clean linen and towels provided and the kitchen had everything you would need. It was very easy to relax in the living room and by the pool. We found the house offered a lot of privacy and it felt very safe and secure.

The location of the home is great and only a 5 minute drive to all Palm Springs attractions and amenities.

The highest compliment we can pay is that we would love to come back and unreservedly recommend the home to others.

Wish I could rate this place even higher!

  • 5 of 5
Quit your vacation rental search and book this place right now! My husband and I had our honeymoon here and it was so perfect!

First off, the house is in such a perfect location. It's in a quiet community that is minutes away from several grocery stores, restaurants, downtown Palm Springs, and the airport. There is a Whole Foods being built nearby too! Being vegan, it's normally difficult to find good places to eat when I'm not at home. In Palm Springs it was very easy to find great places to go to on a restricted diet.

The home itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Everything you need to cook a nice meal is provided for you in the kitchen - very accommodating. The cooking area in the backyard is perfect for BBQing as well. The secluded backyard with a fountain feature between the pool and the hot tub makes for such a relaxing lazy-day in the sun. The master bathroom is designed very well. The extra storage space underneath the sink came in handy for all the junk I brought with me (us girly-girls and our makeup and hair care products can really appreciate this :D).

We had such a great experience here and hope to visit again soon!

Best Vacation Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5
I'm hesitant to post this amazing review because this house will be booked and we won't be able to reserve it again! But this house and these owners were fabulous. The thoughtfulness started before we arrived with a packet of info that arrived in the mail, then when we arrived we were greeted with a gift bag! The house was beautiful, maintained perfectly and had every amenity (and more) that you could possibly need. My parents loved their stay so much they started looking for houses while here. Unfortunately this house was not for sale. We will be back again!

Fantastic House and Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5
The house is newly renovated and is located at the end of a cul-de-sac. The renovation was sublime and the property was well cared for. We had one issue during our stay related to the a/c and the owner was super responsive and the problem solved immediately. There was plenty of kitchenware, linens, bbq tools and pool floats. We even were greeted with a beautiful orchid for the house and a $50 gift card to Lulu's for dinner! The place is really a gem!

The quintessential Palm Springs vacation house!

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough wonderful things about this home and the fantastic hospitality of the owners! They had incredible attention to detail, from the welcome bag to the tasteful, yet comfortable furnishings in the house. The pool and outdoor area are expansive, sparkling and lead to instant relaxation! The home is situated on a quiet street in a lovely tree-lined neighborhood ideal for walking and is close to downtown Palm Springs and a great park for kids. Strongly recommend!

We were eager to soak up the sunshine and spend quality family time in Palm Springs and cannot imagine a more wonderful place to have done that then the butterfly house. While we hiked (Indian Canyon, Tahquitz and Coachella), shopped (El Paseo and downtown Palm Springs), played lots of tennis at Ruth Hardy (such friendly regulars!) and ate out a few times (Lulu's excellent), nothing compared to just hanging out at the house. Everything was amazing. Crystal, clean pool with plenty of loungers and floats. Covered outdoor kitchen and lounge area for grilling, games, and just hanging out. The firepit was awesome. Kept us gathered close, laughing and chatting late into the night. Towels, linens, kitchen utensils... everything was perfect. Can't say enough about how amazing the butterfly house was. We have never gone back to the same spot, but we are already talking about when we can stay here again. Not soon enough!
