About the property

Mid-Century Alexander, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Palm Springs TOT License # 4524

Relax and unwind in this recently remodeled Alexander, located in the unique mid-century neighborhood of Racquet Club Estates. An open floor plan, polished concrete floors, post and beam ceilings and contemporary furnishings are a few features that make your stay here a distinctively Palm Springs experience.

An airy great room boasts a comfy leather sectional sofa and a 50” TV and home theater, leading into the dining area and newly renovated kitchen.

The Master bedroom has a king bed, while bedrooms 2 & 3 have queen beds. All are tastefully styled, two with TVs. The Master bedroom has a private bath, with convenient outside access.

With spectacular mountain views, the spacious backyard is completely private; take a dip in the pool, or enjoy the hot tub. 

Grill and dine on the outside patio, or cozy up to the fire pit on those cool desert nights.

Located at the end of a quiet cul de sac, this Krisel- designed Alexander is centrally located, minutes from downtown restaurants, nightlife, and all that Palm Springs has to offer.

About Paul Schumaker

My partner and I are Angelenos who enjoy traveling and weekend desert getaways! We also have the home next door, vrbo listing # 492065.

Paul Schumaker purchased this house in 2008

Why Paul Schumaker chose Palm Springs

We love the desert lifestyle, and the proximity is perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. We're big fans of mid-century architecture, and love the neighborhood. We purchased the house in 2008, and spent the entire summer renovating it.

What makes this house unique

If you like post-modern style, you'll love the house. We really tried to preserve the architectural integrity of the home, while making it comfortable, stylish and most of all fun. We like our guests to feel like they're getting away from it all, Palm Springs style!

Stellar Rental

  • 5 of 5

After spending many hours researching Palm Springs rentals for our vacation, I decided on this property. My husband and three kids (ages 8, 9, 11) just spent a week here. Truth be told, with so many five star reviews I was a bit concerned this rental may be too good to be true. But all the five star reviews are accurate! This home, property, pool, location and host are absolutely wonderful. The outdoor spaces are completely private. Everything is eye pleasing from the pool, landscape, and decor to the stunning mountain views. It is not only beautiful but extremely comfortable as well, beds included. I am picky about cleanliness and this home was immaculate upon arrival. The kitchen was so well-equipped and the setting so pleasurable, we chose to eat at home almost every meal. Paul, the host, was very responsive, easy to work with and ended up staying at their property next door for part of our stay. He was available and welcoming but not nosy or intrusive; a stellar host. We hope to return to this fabulous place!

Your desert oasis

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home, breathtaking views, helpful and friendly owner, great location, ample home goods and linens supplied. We had the best time here and the home perfectly suited our needs for a girls getaway. The outdoor/pool set-up is great- we spent 90% of our time in Palm Springs right there at "home." Check in/out were simple and easy. Couldn't rate this place any higher! Thanks Paul!

Excellent stay & host

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing time here. Everything was smooth and Paul is a fantastic host who is easy to reach if you have questions. Our son couldn't get enough of the pool and everything was comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with all the right gear. Thanks again!

Great Alexander House Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here, property looked exactly like in the photos. It was very clean and well maintained, the owners are very attentive and respond promptly with answers to any questions. The pool and outdoor seating areas are both ideal for lounging the day away. There is a supermarket just a couple of blocks away which is convenient for cooking lunch/dinner on the grill. Would stay here again for sure!

We loved every thing about this house!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of March in this beautiful home and enjoyed every minute. Paul was very attentive to every detail and could not have been more gracious. We will definitely stay at 2154 George Drive the next time we are in Palm Springs. The house is bright and open with lots of sunshine and open space.

Gorgeous decor, tons of high-end amenities and great location. It has everything we need to make our Palm Springs getaway amazing! The pool and backyard is super private and perfect for our pup. We grilled outside every night, enjoying the fire pit, hot tub and incredible views of the San Jacintos. Super close to groceries, restaurants and vintage shopping. Paul is a wonderful, gracious, conscientious and easy to work with host. We can't wait to go back!
