Overview

California Desert House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Welcome to a beautifully reimagined home circa 1969 located in prestigious Twin Palms Estates in the south end of Palm Springs. The home offers magnificent views of the San Jacinto mountains, privacy, a 40' lap pool and spa, and most of all, the tranquility of the desert warmth, air and light.

The 60's design provides easy, relaxed living while on vacation. Shopping, hiking, antiquing, golfing, horseback riding are but a few of the local activities available to the visitor.

The home was renovated top to bottom in 2013, and features all new bathrooms and kitchen, flooring, gravel roof, DG ground covering and pea gravel around the pool area.

There are up to 7 conversation areas around the property starting with the 75' covered patio with skylights...reaching around to the new courtyard in the front of the home, offering tranquil views of the San Jacinto mountains.

The extremely quiet street provides the private Entertainment Hideaway property the desert offers!

Wonderful house in Palm Springs - great for two couples

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for one week - 2 couples. We chose this house primarily because it seemed to be set up well for two couples and there were few houses in PS that had 2 "master" bedrooms. Although this property does not have 2 official masters, there are two nice bedrooms that each have their own bathroom accessible directly from the bedrooms (plus a 3rd bedroom which we did not use). That's a big plus. The house had that and so much more. It is beautifully decorated in mid-century modern style, has a nice pool (we didn't use it but it seemed to be nice and warm), a nice hot tub, a fire pit, and tons of separate sitting areas both inside and out. I don't think we tried them all out - there were so many places to sit and enjoy the property! I was especially pleased with the very large covered patio seating area - the shade was nice even though it wasn't too hot when we were there. We also loved the fire pit. The location was nice, walking distance to several places to eat and close to a grocery store/shopping center. I loved the giant grapefruit tree in the back yard with the most delicious grapefruits! It is close to the downtown shopping area (maybe a 10 minute drive at most). The neighborhood was quiet and beautifully kept up. We enjoyed walking around the area and looking at the lovely homes and landscaping. I definitely recommend choosing the "Swank 1969 Hideaway".

Perfect house for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a great house to relax, laugh, and enjoy the sun of Palm Springs. We had a 'Moms Weekend Away' and it was such a fun weekend. The house and yard were very clean, orderly, and beautiful. Plenty of space to be by yourself or sit in a group. The pool was amazing and the hot tub was lovely at night. I would recommend this house for couples or a girls weekend/week a way. It is also in a great neighborhood, and close to dt area. We loved the style in each room, the space, and a wonderful big kitchen. We will definitely come back and recommend this rental.

Great Location, Great Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I just completed our week's stay for Modernism Week at this delightful property.

Having stayed in Twin Palms a year ago we were determined to do it again and we were not disappointed! Twin Palms is our favorite area within Palm Springs. The neighborhood is quiet and located beautifully with an easy, daily walk to our favorite Koffi and Appetitto. The Smoketree complex with grocery stores, post office, and a host of other shops is a very short drive.

Bruce's home is EXACTLY as depicted in the photos. You get precisely what you expect. He is very professional, reliable, and prompt in responding to any requests or questions.

Once again, we LOVED the location, the neighborhood loaded with fabulous modernist homes. My daughter, who is very fussy, felt that this house should be on one of the Modernism tours. Comfortable, relaxing, open and spacious with a stunning kitchen we felt at home. The sparkling, clean pool and various outdoor spaces made us reluctant to leave the property. Cutouts in the patio overhang along with floor tile cutouts for plants greatly enhanced the outdoor experience.

The two bedrooms sharing a bathroom with perfect pocket doors offered marvelous mountain views even while showering! A view to be remembered. All three bedrooms were very generous in size. We never used the air conditioning.

The spacious living room equipped with comfortable seating, fireplace we never used, tv, reading material, and glass wall offering pool views was perfect. The entire home is open with generous spaces for each activity.

Hard working housekeeper Anna created an immaculate setting for our arrival and we even got to meet her smiling face upon our departure. She deserves a tip at the end of your stay.

We recommend this home hands down. Perfect setting, well designed, easy booking, great all around. Sorry I can't include our photos taken from the house of the moon next to Venus hanging over the mountains!!

Wonderful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family of 4 for spring break last year and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our kids are 8 and 4 and loved the pool and we used the stereo to stream musing throughout the house all day liong. The grapefruit tree in the backyard by the pool produced the perfect juice for our creative cocktails. We walked to Koffee for breakfast and snacks almost daily. The layout is great, the design was wonderful, pool and hot tub were used daily by all, and the location was superb. Ralph's is just a short drive (or longer walk) away for all your grocery needs. Bruce was great and very responsive before, during, and after our stay. We hope to return this coming spring break.
