RENOVATED MID-CENTURY MODERN * RESORT STYLE POOL * PLENTY OF PRIVACY

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to 1961! This home was designed by the noted Palm Springs architect Hugh M. Kaptur and built by Ranch Construction Company as one of only 200 homes in the area. Strong post and beam construction atop concrete block walls give this house a cave like feeling of comfort with 21st Century amenities.

Nici's Pool House was completely updated in 2011 with new floors, all new paint and decor and modern desert landscaping. An over sized resort style pool perfectly compliments this hip, cool home.

Live in the backyard; watch the sun set behind the mountains from the provided pool floats; enjoy refreshing chilled drinks; listen to music (outdoor stereo system) or read a book under the covered patio. Barbecue on the stainless steel grill or just relax on a lounge.

The living/great room features a large sectional sofa, an HD television with BluRay player and a Wii as well as a dedicated Netflix account for unlimited movie viewing.

The Master Bedroom has a California King bed, a couch and direct access to the patio and pool and an en-suite bathroom with tub and rain shower.

The other two bedrooms have Queen beds and are across the hall from the second bathroom.

All three bedrooms have flat screen televisions, DVD players, ceiling fans, iPod docking stations, classic clock radios and extra linens.

Hugh M. Kaptur, the architect of this home, designed many homes in Palm Springs including one for Hollywood star William Holden. Step back into the time of the Rat Pack and Mad Men and enjoy living in the sixties with today's comforts.

NICI'S POOL HOUSE is convenient to everything yet secluded in a quiet residential street.

RESERVE, RELAX and ENJOY.

We operate a legal rental under Palm Springs City Permit: #4808

We've been coming to Palm Springs since 1997 and started renting homes here. We discovered the secret to what makes a home fun to stay in or just blah. Spending holidays here in the warm climate made us decide that we had to have a place of our own. We love coming to this house with our family and think you will like our house too. We've taken all of the things we've learned over years of renting and applied them here to make the house fun and relaxing. We think we've succeeded.

Bert & Berlynn

Bert Simonis purchased this house in 2010

Palm Springs has one of the best climates in the world for outdoor living. We are lovers of everything mid-century and went looking for a 1960's era post and beam home. We wanted an amazing pool with large, private yard and a spacious indoor/outdoor home. We searched for a quiet street that was close to stores, restaurants, the airport and major highways. You'll agree that we found it! We're literally minutes from restaurants, the airport, the highway and downtown. We know that you'll enjoy Nici's Pool House and will come back again and again.

We love the pool, laying on the chaise lounges in the backyard, or just reading a book in our desert garden. Our dogs enjoy the walled yard and can roam freely without worry. We enjoy just hanging out at the kitchen bar and finding that everywhere we want to go is nearby. The beautiful Riviera resort is a great place to go for dinner, and the folks at Tinto always make us feel like we're regulars.

FANTASTIC & RELAXING MDW!

Fantastic & Relaxing MDW!
  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect spot for a girls weekend. The amenities are so nice (TV in every room, Netflix, drinks station, swamp cooler AND AC) it was easy to start relaxing right away. The pool is amazing, nice and deep, and you can see the San Jacintos in the distance. We lounged, swam, and relaxed all weekend! When we did go out, it was a super convenient location. There's a delicious taqueria with 99 cent tacos nearby and an Albertson's within walking distance. It's 10 minutes to downtown with lots of yummy food options, too! My only suggestion would be to add some reading material around the house (books or magazines) for people who want to read near the water and don't want their e-readers around! I can't wait to stay here again on a break from chilly San Francisco :)

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you enjoyed your time relaxing. We agree about the reading material - we moved the (often overlooked) magazine rack from the Master Bedroom to the Great Room. We're also going to be adding some paperbacks to replace the no longer needed DVD's. We look forward to your return!

FUN HAD BY ALL!

  • 5 of 5
We ( my 2 school aged daughters, my husband, my aunt and uncle, and myself) spent 4 days in this Palm Springs rental. We enjoyed the layout of the house, the pool, and playing the Wii! I would recommend this rental for families.

A RELAXING SUNNY FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We felt that we could immediately start our holiday from the moment we walked in the door. The house was well laid out and well equipped and there was plenty of space for a family. It was lovely to relax by the pool. We enjoyed the personal touches of Palm Springs in the decor and memorabilia around the house. We would definitely book again.

SECOND VISIT REVIEW; PERFECT PALM SPRINGS LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Two couples on a two weeks holiday, the house has everything we needed to enjoy our stay. This was the second time we've stayed at the Nici's Pool House and the charm, beauty, and serenity of the place was just as memorable as the first. It is tastefully and comfortably furnished and the kitchen is equipped with everything we needed. The garage was available to park in. All linens, including beach towels, were provided, which was very nice. The home is equipped with a large TV and comfortable couches for great movie nights.

The backyard, with a beautiful mountain view, gets sun all day and if you need shade there are is a covered patio with a huge table and chairs. We love the private, clean pool and spent much of our time swimming.

The owners (Bert & Berlynn) are great to deal with, every time we had a question it was answered promptly -- they thought of everything! We can't recommend this lovely home enough. We will return.

Palm Springs is a great place to look for vintage clothing and furniture in the many shops along Palm Canyon. If you are interested in newer things, the Cabazon Outlet stores are twenty minutes away. Hiking in Indian Canyon or at the top of the tram is a great past time and just across the highway is White Water Canyon.
