Our Original restored Palmer+Kriesel designed Alexander mid century sits on 11000 square foot lot on a cul-de-sac and was featured in the New York Times 'Home section' entitled 'Desert Cool'. Inside, you'll find classic modern treatments such as Eames tables and chairs, Case Study beds in both bedrooms, mixed with completely renovated bathrooms and kitchen with everything you’ll need. High vaulted ceilings and refinished flat cement flooring throughout with Design-Within-Reach throw rugs and FLOR tiles. The pool and surrounding deck has been completely updated as of fall 2017. (The City of Palm Springs ID# 770.) The Living Room features Hi-Definition DirectTv with movie channels (HBO and SHOWTIME), Apple Tv, and a SONOS sound system. The master bedroom also features a wood burning fireplace. Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors open to a kidney shaped pool, surrounded by palm and olive trees. There's even a private outdoor lounging/eating covered patio, framed by Frosted resin panels. 2 separate in-ground gas fire pits, one by the pool and living area, and the other by the hot tub, provide some privacy even when together on the property. Recently we’ve upgraded the house with new pool loungers from Design-Within-Reach, re-plastered the pool including new imported tile from Japan, upgraded the TV to a new 50” LED Sony, and added new LG Washer/Dryers. The kitchen has also been updated with new Bosch appliances, and we feature All-Clad stainless steel pots and pans. Recently we upgraded the hot tub to a Hot Spring Spa with Moto-Massage® jets, complemented by a Quartet® jet system, to soothe your neck, shoulders and back. Its comfortable seating, styled armrests, and SoothingStream® water feature provide maximum relaxation. The 4-ton air conditioner is new as of Sept '15, and controlled by the Nest Thermostat. THREE LOUNGING AREAS : Additionally, a third seclusive lounging area off the middle bedroom (away from the other areas) by the hot tub features original Balinese wood loungers. Overall - magical and relaxing... COMPLETE PRIVACY: The house is located on one of the larger lots in the Racquet Club Estates and is completely enclosed and private (backyard, pool ,spa, lounging areas). GOLF + PARK: While 'true' golfer's probably won't want to use the clubs we make available, we do have an old set at the house for your use...in case you want to golf at one of the local public courses for fun. Just one block away is a large grassy park with trees and benches, etc. Located about 15 minutes from the airport, and less than five minutes from the center of Palm Springs center of restaurants, shops, and attractions. The City of Palm Springs ID# 770. Thanks for looking!

                                                              Perfect getaway home to relax with family!

                                                              Easily the best home we've rented for a getaway-super clean, all amenities provided were new and exactly what we needed to host a relaxing weekend bbquing. Pool is perfect, BBQ was easily accessible, hot tub at night was the cherry on top! Five mins or less from the market and 10 or less from restaurants/hotels to visit around as well (Saguaro, Ace etc). Thanks so much Marcel for being such a great host! We will definitely recommend and be back soon!

                                                              Quiet cul-de-sac oasis is soothing and full of light. The details to the furniture and amenities are top notch. Very easy drive into downtown Palm Springs and the tram. My significant other and I enjoy visiting Palm Springs. Sherman's Deli, hiking the Indian Canyons and Trina Turk are treasures. Marcel is a pleasure to work with. I would return in a heartbeat.

                                                              Amazing Place

                                                              Property is well kept, really clean, and spacious. Close to groceries. Marcel was very accommodating with check in/check out times. Perfect weekend getaway!

                                                              Great home

                                                              Nice quiet neighborhood, spacious layout, clean, and all the amenities you'd need at home. Only thing missing was an iron. 5 minute drive to downtown Palm Springs.

                                                              Relaxing, home away from home

                                                              This was my second visit to Mid Century Hideaway, which tells you something. Great location, and everything has been thought of to ensure a hassle free stay. The house is really well equipped from the kitchen, audio/visual to the outside of the property. A pleasure!
