Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This Home is one-of-a-kind..Vintage Mid Century 'OLD' Palm Springs! Home has been held by the same owner for 41 years and just recently re-introduced to the rental market. This is a throwback to the RAT PACK era. House was remodeled 19 years ago in the style of the late 1960's and the Disco 80's. Furnishings are classic vintage of that era with Turquoise carpet...lavender wall paper and mirrors on many walls.

The home was on the celebrity 'A' list in the late 1960's and boasts to have had many well known Hollywood guests including Ca. Gov. Ronald Reagan who spent many weeks relaxing under the palms. The VERY PRIVATE backyard is huge with a massive patio and views of Mt. San Jacinto. The entire layout has that open feeling.

As you walk into the front door you immediately RELAX as you look out to the pool and mountains from the A-Frame windows. The Living Room has a marble fireplace that leads to the large family Room. Glass sliding doors open onto the patio and pool area. Or you can go directly to the FORMAL DINING ROOM from the foyer. This leads to the large eat-in-kitchen and breakfast nook. There are double ovens and all amenities on the kitchen island. Off the breakfast nook is a large side patio for morning leisure.

The master bedroom suite has a king bed and the bath has a Jacuzzi tub. The 2nd bath has a sunken/step down tub/shower that leads outside to the backyard.

The CHARM of this house is the main attraction. You will see and feel what bygone days were like in Ol' Palm Springs by staying here. All the furnishings give you that feeling of 'good Times' past.

This home has 2600 square feet all on one level(ranch style) Also, there are grapefruit trees in the backyard. The pool is so relaxing and the views so inviting. Call me to discuss any needs you may have that have not been mentioned. Enjoy!!...I know you will!

Also, We have just finished a major remodel in the kitchen and dining area. There is now Terrazo Tile throughout the kitchen/Family Room. Also, new appliances and a Wine Cooler!

About Wayne Duncan

My family has owned this house since 1967! As a kid, there was such a freedom and sense of perpetual vacation every time we would come to Palm Springs. My brother and I always brought friends and we spent all day in the pool. It's amazing how the house and the experiences are still the same for my kids! It's really a special place with an incredible vibe. That's why we never sold the house and keep coming back.

Wayne Duncan purchased this house in 1967

Beautiful Palm Springs Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I wanted a relaxing weekend getaway in Palm Springs from our busy, professional LA lives. We stumbled upon the Duncan residence on HomeAway and were immediately charmed by it's 60s appeal, its pool, location, and size (3 sizable bedrooms). Wayne was super easy to work with and an excellent host - and the house was beautiful and clean. The neighborhood was quiet but the houses are well-spaced so we felt we had privacy. We spent the weekend swimming, cooking, and listening to music. We could not have been more happy with our trip, would highly recommend this house, thank you Wayne!

Very Private, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a one-of-a-kind Mid Century Home with an excellent location in south Palm Springs. It has a very private outdoor pool area, providing a great spot to relax and dine. The grapefruit trees were an added bonus providing fresh grapefruit every morning.

The home is extremely well equipped with games, books and a kitchen where you will find anything you need for meal preparation. There are 2 master bedrooms at opposite ends of the house making it ideal to share with your guests.

The home was very clean when we arrived, in fact we hired the house keeper to clean for us a few times during our 6 week stay. We found Wayne easy to deal with and very accommodating .

We would highly recommend a stay.
