MARTINI MODERN PRIVATE HOME IN SOUTH PALM DESERT

Palm Desert House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5 MAX

If you enjoy design, you will love this 1963 private home located in desirable south Palm Desert; completely re-imagined and remodeled by Hollywood designers whose goal was to 'create a get-away retreat that blended Mid-Century ambiance with upbeat 21st century amenities'.

The open concept interior features elegant white terrazzo floors with low-pile, geometrically-patterned carpeted bedrooms, a Euro-modern kitchen and mosaic tile bathrooms. The home is illuminated and furnished with a blend of contemporary (Jonathan Adler) and vintage (Paul Secon) fixtures. Large expanses of glass and sliding doors look out to resort-like grounds with a backyard featuring a sparkling blue pool and a generous emerald lawn, flanked by clusters of mature palm trees.

And when you want to explore, El Paseo (the Rodeo Drive of the desert), just minutes away, boasts the best shopping and dining in the Coachella/Palm Springs Valley. The surrounding mountains offer an abundance of hiking trails. Golfing and tennis opportunities are also available, as well as big name entertainment at the McCallum Theater and local gaming venues.

The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a custom-converted sideboard for a double-sink vanity. Pierre Cardin night tables bookend the pillowtop Cal King bed. This room has a 46” inch TV and sliding door pool access. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and TV. The third bedroom (pool-facing), with a daybed, can double as an office. There is wireless Internet throughout the home, premium satellite service, and a landline for your convenience.

The living room offers a blend of vintage teak and contemporary lacquered furniture, including a Noguchi coffee table, and period abstract paintings that take you back in time. Yet, a high-resolution sound system, Bose speakers, a powered Velodyne sub-woofer, and a new 60” TV remind you that this is the 21st century.

The adjoining dining area can seat up to 8. The custom kitchen has Caesarstone countertops and a bar that seats three. There is a gas stove and oven, microwave, slow-cooker, mixer, blender; all the appliances you need to cook up that great meal when you feel like staying in.

Cue up Sinatra. Stir the drinks. You’re in the perfect setting for entertaining, conversation, or contemplation.

About Ellen Considine

We are a married couple who live and work in Los Angeles. We own a creative design and advertising agency.

Ellen Considine purchased this house in 2006

Why Ellen Considine chose Palm Desert

We chose this Mid-Century house for its generous corner lot, walled private back yard and pool area, and its long, low lines which provided us with a unique design opportunity. We love being in Palm Desert, an art-centric community, and for easy access to the many hiking trails in the surrounding mountains.

What makes this house unique

Before we renovated, we asked, 'What does this house want to be?'. Our answer was to update with fidelity to its original Mid-Century soul. Our daughter's 18 yr-old friend was visiting recently and validated our vision when she exclaimed, 'I feel like Marilyn Monroe is going to walk in!'.

California Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect. From the modern and stylish finishings inside to the beautiful lounging area by the pool. It provides comfort and cool. Location is fantastic for supermarkets and fashion area - but we spent most of our time relaxing by the pool. Will hopefully make it again one day!

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5, (3 teenagers), loved staying at this home for a week during spring break. Everything was as advertised, very nicely renovated and decorated, exceptionally clean, comfortable beds, kitchen well equipped with all the dishes, pots utensils etc that are needed, tv, stereo and wi-fi all worked without any problems. The outdoor patio and pool were great. Beautiful yard and pool, it was so nice to sit back and relax in the sun.
The owners were very nice to deal with, provided local info for restaurants, shops etc. and no problems with payments and damage deposits.
The property is in a great location in Palm Desert, very central with lots of shops close by. We went hiking every morning, Golfed a few times and went ATVing one day, lots of fun..
We always ask one question after our trips; would we go back to the same location? All five of us agreed we would absolutely go back again.

Martini Modern . . . marvelous.

  • 5 of 5
I apologize to the owners of Martini Modern for this tardy review. You see, I am hesitant to let others in on this property. First of all, it is a true VRBO, in the original context of the site, a home rented by the owners, not a listing by some large property manager. Without going on and on, my husband and I found the house perfect in every way. The home, pool, yard (yes, it even has a yard!) are all immaculate and well cared for. It is well appointed and the kitchen has all the dishes, pot and pans, utensils you could ever need. . . including the martini shaker of course. The location is perfect as well, within easy walk or short car ride to grocery stores, Starbucks (hmmm, important for me), and close to El Paseo for great shopping and restaurants. Great location no matter where you golf and I loved riding my bike from there every day. I highly recommend the Martini Modern home to all. (Just not when I choose to rent it.) Enjoy!

All Martini...All Modern!

  • 5 of 5
Never having been to Palm Desert before, we were unsure if we had picked the right location. I can say without a doubt that this property is nestled in the heart of Palm Desert, and within walking distance to some great areas, especially El Paseo Drive!

Approaching the front door to Martini Modern was our first clue we were in for a surprise. The property was immaculately maintained and the welcoming orange door put a smile on our faces.

Upon entering, we literally felt relaxed and excited about the next few days of our stay. The kitchen and entertaining area opened up to the patio and pool deck that expands into the back yard. Fully enclosed for privacy and also shaded by several palms, most of the evenings and afternoons were spent outside, only ducking inside briefly to refresh our drinks. The accommodations were well equipped to handle everything promised and is detailed exactly to the specifications.

Finally, Ellen (owner) is a complete pleasure to deal with. No issues, 100% accommodating and extremely hospitable.

The Martini Modern experience is a must....I highly recommend this property. What are you waiting for...your Martini awaits!

Great Get Away Weekend

  • 5 of 5
The house was great, warm and comfortable. The idea was to stay in unwind and enjoy the sun and the pool. The kitchen had every thing we needed to cook some great meals and Bar B Q. The Pool was perfect with lots of great seating. The place is easy to find and located near everything. Owners could not have been nicer. Can't wait to go back!
