Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Atomic Mid-century Wow! The Most Unique Rental in the Desert.

Playground of the Stars! This amazing Palm Springs mid-century vacation home features over-the-top atomic vintage design, an original large pool, a fully restored and functional 1962 Shasta Airflyte trailer, incredible mountain views and an outdoor bar indicative of a Dean Martin lounge. All bedrooms are themed and the murals, lava lamp fireplace, and hidden safe behind a painting sets it apart from pretty much every other Mid Century Modern being rented in the desert.

Since the house was built in 1961, it has been visited by famous celebrities, musicians and a former President. The house was also featured on HGTV's House Hunters and has appeared in Atomic Ranch magazine. It has also been honored, photographed, and toured during Palm Springs Modernism Week in 2013 and 2014.

From the moment you step inside this unique and remarkable mid-century vacation home in Palm Springs, you will feel as if you were transformed back in time to enjoy the glamorous golden days when the Rat Pack ruled this roost. Boasting a wide open floor plan, mid-century furnishings and a cool 60's free-form pool, this Palm Springs vacation home is a great choice for you to sooth your inner retro id.

The spectacular indoor-outdoor and pool lighting will make you ask yourself if you like the property better during the day or during the evening.

With mid-century modern architecture and vintage style, this home is a great example of the desert lifestyle that makes Palm Springs such a popular year-round resort and vacation destination. Basque in the sun, chill in the pool or dance under the stars.

A fully restored 1962 Shasta Airflyte trailer sits next to the swimming pool and is great for a memorable dining experience, extra bed space or to play cards and vintage boardgames with friends.

In the living room you'll find great furnishings reminiscent of the 1950's and 60's including a vintage TV set made into a fish tank and a lava lamp fireplace. The dining area is done in a Dr. Strangelove / Soviet Space theme with a centerpiece table that has real bombs for the legs. The living room opens up to a light and bright kitchen with granite counter-tops and a small breakfast bar. The kitchen comes supplied with every necessity for fun in the sun dining and entertaining.

Each bedroom in this mid-century vacation home in Palm Springs is themed and labeled for your enjoyment...The Rumba Room (Pioneering Space), The Tonga Room (Tiki), and The Satellite Lounge (James Bond). The art was specifically painted for each room to create an unique feel and style. You will be inspired by the attention to detail and thoughtful appointment throughout.

A big private back yard, full built-in bar and gorgeous pool with chaise loungers to enjoy the beautiful mountain views. The ambiance is ideal for relaxing in America's famed desert playground.

Pack your bags...this unique and vintage mid-century vacation home awaits your next Palm Springs getaway!

This vacation home is located in the Palm Springs historic neighborhood of Racquet Club Estates, among dozens of unique vintage homes. Minutes away from some of Palm Springs finest shops, galleries, dining, the Aerial Tram, Knott's Soak City Water Park, coffee shops and entertainment.

About Vacation Palm Springs

When buying our home we knew we wanted to create a groovy retro pad that

was indicative of a time when Palm Springs brightness cast legendary shadows. We

didn't want just a place for our guest to stay...we wanted to evoke an epoch of

charisma, talent, and scandalous excesses in the desert.

To us The Atomic Lair was an opportunity to salvage 'a Hollywood starlet with

great bones - she may have been a bit wrinkled but she was still beautiful

underneath.' Thus, outside and in, we lovingly returned her to her Rat Pack

glamor days.

The Atomic Lair to us is an addictive passion...a continual work of art in

progress. Chances are if a guest stays once, they'll find dazzling improvements

when they return.

Odessa & Neo are two hot shot West Coast artists and Interior Designers.

This is what Palm Springs is all about!

  • 5 of 5
This is a super cool house to say the least. There's the Bond room, Tonga room, and the Rumba room all themed out and fun to stay in. The backyard has an awesome view of the mountains which we enjoyed from poolside and at the over the top outdoor bar.

I like to cook and was surprised to find that a lot of what I needed was waiting for me in the granite counter top kitchen and there was even a BBQ/smoker in the backyard.

If you are looking for a fun and unique place to stay in Palm Springs then the Atomic Lair is where you want to go.

Great place, great location, great experience

  • 5 of 5
The Atomic Lair is one of a kind. The moment we stepped through the door, we realized we had found somewhere special. It feels very “Retro Palm Springs”. There is original artwork, mood lighting, and all the accoutrements that make for a perfect vacation.

Our favorite part was the outdoor bar and seating. There is an amazing view and we were able to totally decompress and relax. Our kids loved exploring around the citrus trees and playing games in the vintage trailer.

There is plenty of room for 6 to stay. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen stocked with everything we needed for some home cookin’, and it was very close to the downtown restaurants.

The area is one of Palm Spring’s best, wonderful architecture, quiet neighborhood, and lots of room. This is a truly an amazing place.

This venue promises to be very popular so grab it while you can. We loved our stay and will be coming back!

The King of Cool

  • 5 of 5
Because I'm involved in the music business, I've been lucky enough to travel the world and stay in some pretty amazing places. I've learned that the concept of "cool" has always been an abstract; it's the holy grail sought after by many and achieved by few. What is undeniable though is everyone recognizes cool when they experience it…and experience I did when my girlfriend and I checked in at The Atomic Lair. The interior just oozes 1960's sex appeal. The vibe which, let's face it, is what it's all about... is a combination of Steve McQueen in Bullitt, Pussy Galore in Goldfinger and Dean Martin as Matt Helm all sound-tracked to the music of John Barry. The Atomic Lair is THE place to chill and be cool in the desert heat of Palm Springs.
