Overview

Racquet Club Estates House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Strikingly renovated Mid-century Alexander designed by acclaimed architects Palmer & Krisel. As of December 2013, new paint (inside & out), new landscaping, new decor - a total refresh (new photos to follow)! This is the true Palm Springs lifestyle: Martinis, Bikinis, and, uh... 42 inch Flat-Screeny! An entertainer's floor plan features clerestory windows, period-inspired furnishings, high tongue-and-groove ceilings and walls of glass that lead to the *private* resort like backyard, sparkling heated Saline pool, and breathtaking views of the mountains. Enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways: relax poolside, dine alfresco, or lounge in the covered breezeway. 3 bedrooms: 1 King Suite, a Queen sized room, and the 3rd bedroom features 2 XL Twins that can be combined to a luxurious King. There is also a Queen Aero-Bed for added convenience. Other entertainment includes a shaded park nearby, a short walk to the nighttime hotspot The Riviera, and easy access to the Downtown Strip, featuring bars, restaurants, casinos, shopping, & spas.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment

Perfect Slice of Palm Springs Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our perfect vacation week began the moment we contacted the owners to inquire. Excellent, prompt customer service and a welcoming demeanor formed our first impressions of this stellar mid-century retreat.

Imagine our delight when we entered the property to find that the decor, accommodations, and cleanliness were all maintained with the same integrity and attention to detail we had encountered during the booking process. The delightful mid-century decor is clean, chic, and comfortable. Not only is the home perfectly gorgeous and homey; it is also extremely well-stocked with cookware, linens, games, and everything one could possibly need for a perfect getaway.

As we spent the days dreaming poolside, relaxing in the high quality lounge chairs, we enjoyed the idyllic setting of swaying palms, blossoming bougainvilla, and charming citrus trees. And if all of this weren't enough to relax us, floating on rafts (provided by the house) in the heated saltwater pool would do the trick.

The location of this property couldn't be better. Only a few minutes from downtown (shopping, restaurants, bars), the Palm Springs Aerial Tram, and local casinos; it's also not far to such amazing natural treasures as Joshua Tree and Indian Canyons. A sprawling outlet mall is only a short drive on the freeway. And the nearby (actually walking distance) Riviera Hotel & Spa provides excellent nightlife and spa facilities.

We will never, ever forget our very magical week at Martini Weekend and cannot wait to return. The property was everything we hoped it would be, and so much more.

Thanks to Dave, Kris and Chris for sharing your home with us!

Great home with all you need for a great PS getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday weekend get away in this home. The house is centrally located and has all the amenities that you need. The house was extremely clean when we arrived and it had all the charm of the quintessential Palm Springs mid-century modern design. The pool is a great size and there is a beautiful view of the mountains in the backdrop, as you lounge by the pool. My interactions with the property owner were great. She answered any questions that I had in a very efficient time frame. I would highly recommend staying in this home when looking for a great PS experience.

Perfect girls long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Mid Century Martini Weekend home. The house is exceptionally well contained with many of the luxuries of a hotel and the comforts of home. The robes were a nice surprise. We enjoyed the salt water pool, it was heated nicely before our arrival. The pool area was lovely. The proximity to downtown Palm Springs allowed for inexpensive cab rides so all 4 of us could share some wine at dinner without worrying about the drive home. We will plan next years "hockey moms" getaway here again. Thanks Greg for making it easy for us to check in a little early! Cheers!

Beautiful Palm Springs Escape

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. It's a beautifully designed mid century home with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the desert landscape. Views of the mountains are incredible and the salt water pool is a great feature. Property was as described with plenty of towels etc. including laundry. Greg helped us get settled and made the check in process easy and welcoming. Would definitely recommend!

Clean, bright, modern!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house. It was super clean, well appointed, thoughtfully decorated, and the pool (which we had heated) was perfect. The house comes with really thoughtful touches such as slippers and robes, shampoo, sunscreen, and fresh, thick towels. I would absolutely rent here again. The management was outstanding, also. Extremely accommodating to our flight into and out of Palm Springs. Finally, the house has beautiful views, a terrific garden, and a dark, starry sky above at night. It is quiet too, yet close to everything. And being from Chicago, hockey is so important. To see that the house also had all of the NHL channels--BONUS.
