Overview

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.

5 Star All the Way!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 weeks at this lovely mid-century modern home. Everything about this house is 5 star. The backyard for us was the high point of the house. We swam every day in the pool and enjoyed the hot tub and sitting around the fire pit at night. There is a outdoor kitchen and covered cabana area which was great for entertaining. We had some very hot days while we were in Palm Springs but you could always find some shade in the backyard. The house has everything you could possibly need. Last year we rented Michael & Scott's other home in Palm Springs for 2 months so we knew that this house would be well equipped. It didn't disappoint!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a true gem! It offers everything you need. Michael and Scott took care of every detail. The kitchen was more equipped with items than my actual home. This incredible home is located on such a quiet street. and the backyard is large and private! The views of the mountains never got old. Michael was always available if I had a question. Book this home early - gems like this home are difficult to find! Thank you Michael and Scott for renting your home and giving me the most amazing month!

Perfect Place to Relax!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! We stayed for 2 weeks and felt right "at home" the moment we walked in. The house, the pool, and the yard are all perfectly positioned for privacy & sunshine. The gift bag was a nice touch with the gift card for a local dining experience! Everything is provided and we honestly did not want to leave to go anywhere during our two week stay! We did manage to get out to the PS Street Fair and our favorite pizza, Bill's Pizza (the "Elton John" is delicious!) We also participated in the PS International Film Festival 5K Red Carpet Run! Great low-key local event!

Everything inside & outside the house was clean and in great condition. The instructions, app, and communications from the owners & Home Away were all very helpful. This is our new favorite place to vacation and we will be back! Michael & Scott even provided a Christmas Tree for us to decorate and enjoy!

Thank you both for sharing your beautiful home. We hope to be your PS neighbors someday!

Paradise in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this beautiful home. The addition of the spa by the pool and the shade umbrellas for the lounging area is a real plus. The view of the lights on the Palm Springs Tram at night is great. Relaxing with a glass of wine in the private yard and listening to the evening birds is like being in the tropics. During the day the little hummingbirds are eating from the floral shrubs in the yard. What a relaxing 4 days and can not wait for my next visit. Thank You Michael and Scott
