Overview

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

About Bert Simonis

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

Why Bert Simonis chose Palm Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I love your house and I really enjoy staying there. I'm sure next spring I will be looking for some long weekends!

Mid-Century Night at the Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend at Nici's Pool House. We are locals, but wanted a place to be together with our out of town family for a birthday weekend. The house is not huge, but it has three bedrooms and between beds, couches and airbeds you could easily sleep 8, if you're a close knit group like we are. The kitchen was WELL STOCKED. We found every single little thing we needed for grilling, cooking and even whipping up an old fashioned icebox cake. A lot of condiments and cooking ingredients like oils, seasonings, etc.

The air conditioning works great, there was even netflix to watch. TVs in the rooms. The backyard was a great place to hang out and relax. Plenty of pool side furniture, lounge chairs, and the pool was warm and inviting. Even an outdoor sound system for listening to music outside. The pool is great, we had plenty room for seven adults to be in and enjoying at the same time.

There is a grocery store in walking distance, which is a great plus.

Pet friendly. The yard is enclosed and safe for dogs and there's even a cute little hydrant in the back.

Thanks for a great weekend!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

OMG! Love this place. Owners have done a great job of decorating in a Palm Springs style. You will love the memorablia. Clean and comfortable. Covered patio with BBQ. Large pool. Only warning I want to share is that this house is in the landing pattern for the airport, but only during the day and at limited times. It didn't stop us from having a great, relaxing good time.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Nici's Pool House is the perfect place to escape! While you will spend most of your time in the luxuriously private backyard with the gorgeous pool, the house itself is extremely comfortable with all of the amenities you would expect in a home and more! Each bedrrom has a TV, the wifi is excellent, the kitchen is fully equipped, and there is even a Wii for the kids!

We went to the living desert and zoo and did the aerial tram, both of which were great activities, but the Thursday evening downtown art and music fair was the best. The people are so friendly and all have a warm spirit that makes you feel at home. Speaking of warm spirits, the owners of Nici's provide easy instructions for everything in the house and have take great care to provide instructions, recommendations, etc.

I can't wait to return to Palm Springs - my new favorite getaway spot! Love it!!

It was the outside patio..The place we all loved during the day. The outside stero system was great while we sat outside.. It has shade , if you want.The pool is wonderul.. nice and big for laps if you care to. We BBQ at nite , watched the sun set behind the mountains. beautiful setting! The house is fun and colorful with great artwork, great kitchen and comfortable beds! Bert is so nice and a pleasure to work with. Fun to hear all the history about the house and area. We will be back for sure! You will never want to leave!!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our first time here, and my daughters and I had a great week. The owners were very accommodating and couldn't have made it easier for our stay in Palm Springs. The home was accessible for my daughter, who is in a wheelchair. Very easy to get around with a car and within walking distance of a grocery store. We will be back for our next winter vacation and would recommend their home for your getaway.

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.
