Perfect Palm Springs Getaway - Private Pool & Spa Oasis

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Gorgeous mountain views, and complete privacy and relaxation await you when you stay at this south Palm Springs vacation oasis located in the lovely, architecturally significant neighborhood known as Twin Palms. This home features the best of mid-century style with modern conveniences and amenities.

The clerestory windows and sliding doors create a light-filled living room and dining area that looks out on the pool and the panoramic mountain view. The furnishings are hip and modern. A large gas burning rock fireplace in the living room provides a cozy ambience on winter evenings. Wireless internet service and complete cable TV/DVD are provided for your ease and enjoyment.

The home has been majorly renovated and features a kitchen with high-end appliances, lighting, cabinets and gorgeous countertops. Sit at the large counter bar and look up through clerestory windows at the majestic mountains as you sip your coffee or cocktail. Cook on a 6 burner Jenn-Aire stove or step outside to the Weber gas barbeque. The kitchen opens to the living area separated by a bar, perfect for serving drinks, and to the outside eating area where a dining table sits under a shady covered patio. It is a perfect spot to enjoy a lazy meal or morning coffee while gazing at the mountains. In the evening it is a great place to sit with the flames from built-in fire pit casting a warm glow.

Mountains and palm trees are in view from every angle of the enclosed backyard which boasts a large, deep swimming pool and built-in spa. Imagine soaking in the spa as the sun sets, casting its purple glow on the mountains in front of you!

The very spacious master suite, with a comfortable Tempurpedic kingsize bed, opens to the outside with a path that winds to the pool. There is a flat screen TV featuring HBO, Showtime & Netflix for your enjoyment. There are two bathrooms for your use. The newly remodeled guest bathroom features a walk-in shower and mountain views! The master bathroom features a magnificent waterfall shower, deep-soaking tub, double sinks and a large skylight. The light is magnificent!

You will love the location of this home. Twin Palms was the first Palm Springs neighborhood with Alexander-developed homes designed by mid-century architects Palmer and Krisel. In fact, this house will be one of five homes in the Twin Palms neighborhood featured on the 2017 Modernism Home Tour in February. Why stay in the windy north and central parts of town when you can stay in more desirable south Palm Springs? You will be 5 minutes from at least 4 golf courses - Mesquite Country Club, Palm Springs International, Tahquitz River Golf Course and Indian Canyons. The Smokewood Shopping Center and several restaurants are just steps away. The downtown village is a few minutes drive or a pleasant bike ride. Indian Canyon hiking trails, Smokewood horse stables, the Palm Springs Aerial tram and several golf courses are also just minutes away.

(permit #44010000-20010172)

Note: The owners close off the two smaller office/bedrooms in the house when they are away so the space is limited to two people. But the rest of the house, yard and amenities are all yours to enjoy!

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you like to wake up feeling like you are tucked into a magical space surrounded by beautiful dessert mountains while still being a stones throw from everything you could possibly need then I would highly recommend staying here. It was a pleasure. Great house, clean and well cared for, equipped with everything I needed. I enjoyed every minute. The owners were considerate and attentive making sure I felt totally comfortable.

I loved the house and the area and can't wait to go back.

I love Palm Springs Now!

  • 5 of 5

Having not really experienced Palm Springs before, aside from various conventions to area resorts for business, this trip really opened us up to what a wonderful place this is. The home is located close to down town with lots of restaurants and shopping. The only problem is that the home is so amazing that you will not want to leave. This place is fantastic inside and out. The pool, grass areas and outside table to eat are all amazing. We had two small children, two small dogs and three adults on our trip. Plenty of room for everyone to sleep, play and relax. The kitchen was fantastic as well...a joy to cook in.

This is one of many rentals managed by the owners. I will look for one of their properties in the future as they do a top notch job of taking care of their customers. We worked with Michael and he was quick to help us out with questions about the home, as well as questions about where to eat, and spend time while we were in town. All we have thought about since we left is how soon until we return.

I wasn't expecting this to be such a good vacation, but it really was. I can't say enough about how much we all enjoyed this place...even our little dogs who walked along the glass tiles on the spa to get their feet and bellies wet in the hot sun loved it.

Love this place!

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Three of us escaped to PS for 5 days of sun, laughter, shopping. Lauries home was perfect in every way. The house, yard and neighbourhood were exactly as described. The house was fabulously decorated and decked out for all our needs. The location made it easy and quick to visit downtown PS and all the other desert cities. Mike met us upon arrival and gave us the initial tour and made us feel very welcome. The backyard was sunny all day and sheltered from any wind. We loved walking the neighbourhood with all the amazing Mid-Century architecture. As we were usually bushed from our power shopping, we ate in most nights. There was even a back up propane tank for the bbq should the one we were using run out. We had a fantastic time and would come back in a heart beat. Thank you so much!

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is well located, well equipped, and Mike, the local service guy, was excellent in answering a few quick questions. There is a great coffee place called Koffi about 3 minutes walk down the street and Ralph's is about 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive for any groceries. You can go for a run around the neighborhood, visit the Smoke Tree Stables for a horse back ride, visit Joshua Tree National Park i the Mojave Dessert or make a quick trip into downtown Palm Springs. All conveniently accessible from the house.

We used the pool and the spa which were easy to control. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with pots, pans, etc. Bedrooms were great. Cable TV and wifi were easy to get going. There is also a gas fireplace which was great.

Definite worth a return trip.

We were visiting from UK; spend AGES looking at upwards of 30-50 different places to rent in Palm Springs & the area; took weeks, but came across this and showed the family and was an instant hit!

Booking was very easy & efficient & all details very good.

When we arrived at house, the phrase, 'the pictures don't do it justice' is perfect; couldn't believe it; what a house and position. Very well appointed -- superbly decorated and stylish - not many houses are 'designey' like this (in fact lots of other houses we looked at had that bland plain look); Mike was fab in making sure we were welcomed and knew what's what and dealt with any questions during stay. Owners very trusting as they leave instructions as to how to set spa going etc and all the comforts you need; it is like its your house, as nothing is padlocked away or hidden like some places! The bathroom to master bedroom is sort you would see in a top end home!!

Amenities very near; Elmers restaurant within 5 mins walk is VERY good; Manhattan of the Desert, 5 mins in car is also a must eating place.

We had such a great time wished we had booked 10 days not 7!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Julian. We really appreciate when someone enjoys our home so much and lets everyone know why. And you stayed here in the middle of summer! We are also so lucky to have people like Mike and Cay work for us and appreciate having them acknowledged. We really hope you'll come back again. Thanks again, Laurie & Avian
