Overview

Palm Springs Villa Rental Photos and Description

Fabulous villa, 3 Bedrooms, private pool, spa, views, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Elrod Villa, located at the historic Palm Springs Racquet Club, was the playground to Hollywood’s most glamorous celebrities. Originally designed for Sigmund E. Edelstone (wealthy industrialist, philanthropist and art collector) by Hal Broderick of Arthur Elrod and Associates, this masterpiece of mid-century design has been toured by The Smithsonian Institute, The L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art and featured in Architectural Digest (September/October 1975).

The living and dining rooms set the stage for elegant entertaining with soaring ceilings, extensive use of indirect lighting, fireplace, bar, and Italian travertine flooring that extend to the outdoors. Walls of glass overlook the terrace with a luxurious tiled pool, oversized spa and dramatic panoramic views of the San Jacinto mountains.

Space-age bachelor pad details abound with immense steel doors, a mirrored powder room, wet bar, retro-futuristic lighting control panels (including one hidden beside the master bed) and a thumping whole-house audio system cleverly concealed in gorgeous, custom hardwood cabinets. Today, we continue to enhance the villa's midcentury "home of the future" vibe with cool features including color-changing LED lighting, whole house streaming audio (from our device or yours) and tablet-based control of the pool, spa and fountain.

At Elrod Villa, we offer our you a luxury vacation rental experience with hosted check-in, a fantastic local property manager, a private pool and spa, comfy beds, robes, a well-appointed kitchen, beautifully-maintained grounds, and much more! Check out our 5-star reviews to learn more about what makes a stay at Elrod Villa special!

The residence offers 2,400 square feet of living space, including two bedrooms and a spacious den (or third bedroom). The Elrod Villa can sleep up to 6. Conveniently located within minutes of downtown restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

Suitability: Inside, Elrod Villa is a non-smoking property, but smoking is allowed outside in the private pool/garden area. As a historic midcentury modern home, Elrod Villa is not suitable for pets or children and, as a matter of policy, minors under the age of 16 are not allowed.

Please inquire for quotes on weekly (7-night) and monthly (28-days or more) stays! We typically offer discounts for such stays which the VRBO/HomeAway quote tool cannot accurately present.

We look forward to welcoming you to Palm Springs!

About Keith Crosley

My wife Jill and I share a passion for midcentury modernism, entertaining and all things retro-fabulous. She's spent her career in luxury hospitality, ensuring the delight of some of the world's most discriminating guests.

Why Keith Crosley chose California Desert

We fell in love with Palm Springs on our honeymoon and have searched for years for the ideal place to call our home away from home. The "Elrod Villa" is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing properties we've ever seen here in Palm Springs. From its architectural and design significance, to its unique period details, to its stunning mountain views, it was (once again) love at first sight.

The property's previous owners have all shared our dedication to preserving the unique charm of this gorgeous place, while updating it with modern amenities that we expect from a vacation home.

Just Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This house is amazing! Very clean, high ceilings, tasteful decor, a great sound system, and if you like lighting, this place has it all. You are able to change lighting throughout the house to fit any mood you wish. Plenty of pantry items, beautiful bathrooms and spa robes. The outdoors is also very nice, but the reason for the 4 stars is because the pool is not for swimming, only wading. It looks way larger in the photo. Luckily, there is a good size community pool and spa just steps away if you want to swim. I loved Reed, he is wonderful and available if you need him. I also want to thank Keith for letting us have a late check out.

Owner's Response: Crystal, I'm so glad you and your group had a great time at Elrod Villa! Thanks for the kind comments on Reed (he is truly amazing and makes the whole thing possible) and I'm so glad you enjoyed our crazy lights and sound system! I'm sorry that the size and depth of the pool didn't match up to your expectations, but glad that you mentioned and enjoyed the huge community pool just steps away! You guys were great and we look forward to welcoming you back to Elrod Villa on future getaways to the desert. I'm so glad you got to take advantage of late checkout. Do visit us again. Best regards, Keith

Unbelievable Home!!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a much needed vacation at the Elrod Villa and I can't say enough about this property! Keith, the owner, was so helpful before and during my stay. Keith (and Reed the property manager) was always available to answer my questions, so my vacation went very smoothly. Now, about the home...Upon arrival, I was very surprised to find that it was even better than the photos! This place is a mid-century modern dream and probably the coolest place I have ever stayed. All of the amenities were present; I could not have asked for anything else and the location is convenient to everything in Palm Springs. I plan on returning later this year and highly recommend this property! 10 stars!!!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to celebrate our 19th anniversary. This place is great, super clean, secluded, and private. We had a blast and will definitely come back again. Reed the property manager was awesome and provided the best of customer service. Keith the owner made it extra special by providing champagne to help celebrate our special occasion. Overall we highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to experience full relaxation, while being close to everything else. It's the perfect getaway! ! Can't wait to go back.

Modern, sleek and well-appointed. The perfect home.

  • 5 of 5

Elrod was more than just a place to sleep.... It was a home curated with functional technology, beautiful design and a thoughtfulness that's often times missing from other home/villa rentals. From the moment you step inside, you immediately feel that the owners have thought of everything and anything to make their guests comfortable.

This was my first visit to Elrod, but certainly not my last.

STUNNING vacation rental! Absolutely dreamy

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Elrod Villa was absolutely fabulous! This house blew me away. The pictures don't quite do it justice. The kitchen has every appliance you could ever imagine, the pool is not only modern and beautiful but it is also surrounded by a carefully manicured garden with stunning artwork incorporated in it. At night time everything lights up and is truly spectacular. The house has a great sound system, and the pool, hot tub, and lighting are all connected through an iPad that is in the house. You can control everything with the touch of a button. Very cool! The beds are super cozy and the bathrooms are beautiful. The house has a wonderful view of the mountains and is conveniently located a few minutes from downtown Palm Springs. I will 100% return to this desert oasis! The owner Keith is extremely timely in his responses and is a great guy. The property manager Reed is the sweetest man. You can text to ask any question at any time and he responds fast. Overall 10 stars! Thanks Keith for welcoming me into your home.

Totally enjoyed our stay here. Well-supplied kitchen, lovely baths, great entertainment system, nice pool and patio area with wonderful mountain view and nice landscaping. Nice quiet location and short drive to downtown, grocery store, etc. Would love to stay here again. Owner and manager very responsive and pleasant.
