Mid-Century Alexander, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

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.

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!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

Me and a couple of girlfriends stayed at this home over the weekend and everything was amazing! What you see is what you get. Better yet, its way nicer in person. The house was so beautiful and had everything we needed. Dean and Paul were such great people to work with. They were very accommodating and always just a call/text away! They made our trip so much less stressful. I will definitely stay here again. :)

Relaxing and beautiful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Paul's Palm Springs home twice now and have had such an amazing experience both times. He was incredibly easy to communicate with before, during, and after our trip and I appreciated his instructions on how to get into the house and recommendations of things to do in the area. The house is simply superb-- we loved the modern style and the beds are extremely comfortable. The pool area is second to none-- it was great that there were umbrellas by the side of the pool to provide some shade and there was plenty of seating both by the pool and with the outside dining area. This property made our time in Palm Springs feel like a true retreat as we're able to fully relax. I can't say enough positive things about Paul or this home-- we will definitely be staying here again! Thank you as always for an incredible vacation!

An absolute delight!

  • 5 of 5

The property is just as the photos show, exceptionally lovely both inside and out. Decorated to a very high standard and very clean. Paul and Dean responded quickly and we knew we they were there if we needed any help. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, perfect. Wished we could have stayed longer!

Great place and great owner!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in this lovely home for my 40th birthday. My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time. The house was clean, cute and so comfortable. It has everything you need. The beds are so cozy, the living area is comfortable and inviting and the pool and jacuzzi are great. The neighborhood is quiet and picturesque. I can't say enough wonderful things about the owner of the home. He was so welcoming and accommodating. You can tell that he truly wants guests to have a wonderful stay. I would recommend this home to all my friends and I can't wait to come back again!!

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Dean and Paul were very helpful and always returned our calls right away. The house was very clean and well equipped. The house just has a wonderful vibe to it. My girls and I have been going to Palm Sprigs for more than 40 yrs, but this was the most enjoyable experience so far. We were totally spoiled with the house and pool area. Plan to go again.
