Racquet Club West House Rental Photos and Description

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

Vista del Monte (View of the Mountain) is a totally private - walled and gated authentic 1940's Spanish hacienda home.

The property has been totally renovated to its original pristine state and has been totally updated to include all modern conveniences. The attention to authenticity, comfort and detail is rarely found in a rental property.

The home evokes the romance of early Palm Springs and the history of early California ranches.

The home was restored by San Francisco-based designers' Candra Scott and Anderson. The firm specializes in the restoration of landmark hotels and properties throughout the world.

The home has been published appeared in the book PALM SPRINGS LIVING.

The completely refurbished property contains original period pieces. Furnished with authentic vintage pieces from the time; Monterey, Del Rey, Karpen, and early Navajo rugs. The original wrought iron light fixtures and original art create an atmosphere that is unique and distinctive. Vintage decorative tiles from the Victorville Armory have been used throughout the kitchen, bathrooms, and exterior fountains.

The property has three bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two twin beds) and wonderfully appointed bathrooms that include complementary Molton-Brown bath products.

The property is large enough to sleep six, yet intimate enough for a romantic hideaway for two. The backyard invites one to lounge underneath grape covered arbors, relax in the saline pool, or enjoy playing a lively game of Bocce on the regulation size (10' x 60' court).

Desert Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Vista del Monte was perfection. The pictures don't do the property justice. I can't wait for another retreat to the desert and stay here.

Vista del Monte: A Dream Home, A Slice of Palm Springs Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Vista del Monte. It was the perfect location in Palm Springs for a weekend getaway! The house is a dream home for anyone who appreciates Spanish style architecture and aesthetics. It was quite apparent that much care and thought was put into the design of each room. There was so much to look at and appreciate, we couldn't stop taking pictures of everything. We just loved everything about it! The house came equipped with everything one would need for a relaxing, no stress stay. The backyard was paradise! We enjoyed the freshness and coolness of the pool, as well as lounging around the well-landscaped backyard. The backyard got a nice breeze throughout the day and provided some relief from the high temperatures. Although we were only visiting for a couple days, it truly felt like home.

The owner, Brandon, was very easy to work with and was quick to respond to my emails. He even made the effort to call during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed and to answer any questions. The property manager, Tom, was punctual, flexible, and very friendly. He was easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to any missed calls. He was very informative when it came to showing us the house. Tom made us feel comfortable and welcomed us with cold water and delicious toffee popcorn. We had a great experience and can't wait to return!

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous comfortable exquisitely appointed home. The owners have furnished it like a true 1930s is very special. I felt immediately at home. The bedding is soft and luxurious. Bath and pool towels plush. Kitchen has all you need to cook and serve great meals. The lemon trees provided fruit for pitchers of iced water and tea...lovely. The saltwater pool was perfect....I did not want to leave.

On arrival the property manager met us and answered all questions. The owner telephoned to see how we were settling in. Both were available by text and phone for all of our needs. We felt very comfortable contacting them.

Our only concern was the road noise. It is located on a main street and the traffic is busy. Other than that this wonderful home is a perfect vacation destination, especially if you appreciate early California Spanish architecture and antiques.

We are grateful the owners make it available for others to enjoy and have hired a warm and informed manager to assist their guests.

This is an incredibly well-restored Mexican style home, beautifully set up for a family or four plus another couple, in our case, grandparents. It's warm and inviting without being intimidating; lots of attention to small details, including the kitchen tile which is amazing. The garden is young but when the grapes grow over the arbor, it will be heavenly. Both Tom as property manager and Brandon as owner were accessible, helpful and at all times delightful. For some the location on N Indian Canyon and the fact that the property is situated in the windier side of Palm Springs might proved a deterrent, it wasn't so for us. I will say access in and out of the property by car is a little tricky but manageable. I'd return in a heartbeat.

A beautiful property which has been tastefully restored

  • 5 of 5

Vista del Monte is a well maintained, clean and beautifully appointed home. While it has been tastefully restored to a rustic Mexican décor it has all the comforts of modern technology. The pool and garden area has several seating areas from which to enjoy the mountain view and the water fountain adds to the serenity and privacy of the landscape gardens. The pool and outside areas are especially beautiful at night. The house is situated on the busy N Indian Canyon Drive which is close to downtown and several local grocery stores. The owner, Brandon, is responsive with all communication and accessible. Tom, the property manager, is friendly and was always available to answer questions we had about the property and local area. The beds are very comfortable, the linen, towels and Molton Brown products in each bathroom reflect the attention to comfort and detail which exists throughout the home. We thoroughly enjoyed our nine night stay and would definitely consider this property on a return visit to Palm Springs.

Beautifully Restored 1940's Spanish-Mexican Home with Pool and Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

Vista del Monte is an exceptional Spanish-Mexican home restored to its 1940's splendor. Complete with Spanish design wrought iron fixtures, wood architectural accents, and beautiful tile-work, a warm cozy atmosphere is created carrying you back to another time. It is obvious every detail has been selected and placed with love. The outside of the house is even more amazing with lemon trees, flowering terrace landscaping, a potted cactus garden, and mountain views. We were enamored with the outdoor lanai and warm inviting pool, particularly during the cooler 60 degree days. Yes, sometimes the weather temperature falls below 90 degrees! We thank Brandon for creating this amazing private place to share with us. I was traveling with friends this time, but definitely plan to return with my family so they can experience the wonders of Vista del Monte.

More practically, the house is in a great location. Most exciting desert activities are within easy reach, as is downtown Palm Springs and access to Hwy 10. Brandon and his manager are more than willing and able to be of assistance if necessary.
