Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Retro Chic! Secluded yard! Gorgeous sundrenched pool! Three bedroom suites, each with its own bath and pool access! Guests rave about their stay at this Mid-century modern pedigreed home located just a short stroll to restaurants, night clubs, and shopping in South Palm Springs (SOPS) the newest, trendiest part of town.

Access the very private yard from almost every room in the house. The pool area is enclosed by a luscious 20 foot ficus hedge and features a 30' kidney-shaped salt water pool with gorgeous mosaic tile, a shaded patio, a gas BBQ, and a large sunning area. Furnished for dining al fresco, nights under the stars and leisurely afternoons by the pool, this property is perfect for vacationing in true Palm Springs style. You may never want to leave the fabulous pool area!

Step back in time and immerse yourself in entertainment history by vacationing in this centrally located, lovingly preserved mid-century gem, once the home of Julian Stiff, who ran and later owned the famed Palm Springs Chi Chi Lounge. His club’s Starlight Room was a veritable shrine to live entertainment of the Rat Pack Days. The brightest names in showbiz, from Frank Sinatra and Desi Arnaz to Duke Ellington and Lena Horne performed at the club - and the owner’s home, which became known as the Chi Chi House, served as the location for swank impromptu after hours parties and hair-of-the-dog Sunday afternoon barbecues.

Still owned by the Stiff family, this architectural gem has been lovingly and authentically preserved. It’s easy to imagine Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. lounging in the sunken living room, martinis in hand. You can almost hear Peggy Lee or Ella Fitzgerald belting out a tune while Buddy Greco tickled the ivories on the upright piano, which is still in its original location aside the flagstone fireplace. Stiff’s daughter, who still lives in Palm Springs, recalls everyone from Rudy Valle and Jane Russell to Johnny Mathis and Louis Armstrong helping themselves to coffee in the adorable pink and white kitchen.

The Stiff family is proud to share the magical history of this fine example of Palm Springs mid-century style by offering it as a vacation rental exclusively for guests of Acme House Co. The fabulous home offers three bedroom suites (two king and one with twin beds that can be pushed together to form a king). Each suite has its own full bath, a television and direct access to the private pool. The master suite bathroom includes a step-down tub featuring an original cut-glass window from the famous Sardes Nightclub on Hollywood & Vine, which Julian Stiff also owned.

The walls of the home are adorned with memorabilia from the famed Chi Chi Supper Club including a copy of the portrait of the exotic topless Hawaiian girl painted by Edgar Leeteg, that inspired the mid-century Polynesian Tiki craze in Palm Springs, which is currently experiencing a renaissance evidenced by the recently opened Tonga Hut, Bootlegger’s Tiki Bar, and Smoke Tree Supper Club. The living area of this home includes a sunken conversation area with a flagstone & slate fireplace, a wet bar with original club chairs from the Starlight Room, a dining table for 6 and a TV area with a 47" HDTV. You’ll be able to browse the web with Wi-Fi access or dock your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to enjoy your favorite music. The kitchen opens to the pool and offers updated stainless steel appliances, and is fully stocked with utensils, pots and pans for your cooking needs.

I never wanted to leave!!

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I wanted to escape the dreary Seattle weather and found this property and WOW! This house was PERFECT for us!

It was a 5 minute cab ride from the airport and within walking distance to a grocery store, restaurants, bars, and shopping. There are so many great bars and restaurants nearby

The rooms are so comfortable and relaxing which was perfect after a day BBQing & playing ping pong by the pool. It felt like we could spend all day by that pool! And at night there's a cute little fire pit out there too!

Talking to the owner and scheduling the trip was fantastic too. She was super easy to talk to and work with.

I cannot recommend this house enough...and am planning on going back again!

Terrific home in a great location near great restaurants and bars. The home is in terrific condition, with great amenities. Superb place to chill by the pool, have a BBQ and evening cocktails. We had six stay comfortably - plenty of space and room for all. Highly recommend this to folks who are seeking relaxing time away in the sun! The owner is a pleasure to work with too!
