Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

City of Palm Spring TOT Permit #4617

From the moment you arrive at this Palm Springs vacation home, there's no mistaking, you're about to relax and entertain in legendary Palm Springs style.

Stroll through the secured front gate to your own very private, clothing-optional, playground surrounded by vine-covered (pink hibiscus and red bougainvillea) privacy walls and a variety of towering palm trees. The large, 9 foot deep, heated, salt-water pool and outside lounge/entertaining area immediately draw your eye. The desert landscaping, magnificent Mount San Jacinto views and numerous, colorful birds contribute to the restful setting.

Step through the glass front door of this classic Palm Springs home into the sweeping, open living and dining rooms featuring cathedral ceilings. The first thing you'll notice are the incredible polished concrete floors throughout the main living and entertaining area. An updated cook’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances and concrete counter tops integrates into the living, dining, and entertaining area for ultimate functionality. Each of these rooms, plus one bedroom, have uninterrupted views of the sparkling pool through a wall of windows and several oversized sliding glass doors which lead out to the pool area.

Rest and recuperate in the main home’s master suite featuring a King-sized bed, walk-in closet and its own full bath and sliding glass door which leads out to the separate Casita/Guest House. Two additional bedrooms feature Queen-sized beds and share a stunning second bath with a large, slate-finished shower and sleek contemporary finishes. All bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans and cable TV/DVD.

Looking for an intimate moment away from other guests? The spacious, private Casita/Guest House also boasts designer concrete floors throughout. There's a full kitchen with concrete counter tops, a stylish, updated bath with shower and an oversized bedroom featuring a Queen-sized bed. Two sliding glass doors lead out to a private patio, also with easy pool access. The Casita also features its own front entry gate and door, plus a private front patio.

This Palm Springs home is perfectly suited for those who want to enjoy legendary Palm Springs style. Nestled in the convenient and desirable Sunrise Park neighborhood, this Meiselman designed Mid-Century home epitomizes desert living. Nearby homes offer well-maintained visual treats for those with an appreciation of Mid-Century architecture and desert landscapes. This property is located just minutes from downtown Palm Springs, the Casino, Tram, Airport, and much more.

JULY 2016 Eight of us were planning a summer weekend retreat. We were looking forward to the use of this property. We had signed contracts in place with full documentation including guest registry and identification. Payment was made according to owners specifications prior to the agreed upon deadline. Unfortunately owner canceled with NO EXPLANATION. Payment was refunded in full. VERY DISAPPOINTED TO HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER RENTAL LESS THAN TWO WEEKS BEFORE TRIP. Owner did not return phone call or email after cancellation.

Perfect Spring Break Rental For Family With Teens

  • 5 of 5

We came for Spring Break with four 16 year olds and one 9 year old. House had everything we needed for a perfect week in the sun. The pool was great with plenty of deck lounges and chairs. The Casita was very nice and gave the teenagers the feeling they were on their own vacation. Casita has a nice kitchen and bath with separate bedroom. Main house and Casita are both nicely updated with modern windows and plenty of IKEA sensibility. The main house had a very well stocked kitchen. Master bedroom on opposite end of house from other two bedrooms gave nice space and privacy for everyone. Centrally located laundry off the kitchen was extremely handy. Internet worked great in both the main house and casita. The owners were very responsive before, during, and after the rental. Appropriate refund of our deposit was made in just a couple of days. Would DEFINITELY rent here again. Absolutely loved the place and central location.

Beautiful Sunshine

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was lovely! The house is really nice. We had our 3 kids with us and had plenty of room, my mother in-law stayed in the casita which was perfect for her, it gave her the little bit of privacy she craved, yet she could come into the main house and enjoy the pool with us too. The house has everything you need, very well stocked kitchen, it was also nice to be able to do a bit of laundry when needed. The pool was the best feature, super clean, it was cold when we arrived but once we turned the heat on, it was the perfect temperature and we didn't want to get out of it! The outside speakers were great for playing music while we were swimming. You can hear a bit of planes flying by during the day, but it's all the same throughout Palm Springs, you don't really notice it after a while, they do stop flying after 8, so it's nice and quiet through the night. We had a great stay, thank you Paul!

Mid-Century Modern with Casita

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of six friends and wanted to try renting a house in Palm Springs instead of renting hotel rooms. We searched several rental properties and decided on Mid-Century Modern with Casita. A four bedroom and three bath house with a pool. The house is nicely decorated, clean, and maintained. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The landscape is beautiful. We also had a view of the mountains. We were in a nice neighborhood. Quiet. We felt safe. We were also a blocks from downtown Palm Springs.

One recommendation from someone in group is to change the bathroom faucets. He said they are too close to the sink. Maybe too hard to rinse.

Perfectly swanky and relaxing get-away

  • 5 of 5

Early this summer in late June as the arctic breeze sweep through San Francisco, we planned a quick get away to Palm Springs and stayed at this gem of a holiday house. The place had everything you would want for a weekend retreat:

- SUPER CLEAN, tons of fresh sheets and towels, nice sized closets, extra pillows of varying types

- kitchen stocked with good utensils, cookware, dishes, etc.

- it was nicely decorated (not that bland or leftover vibe that you sometimes find with vacation house rentals).

- the layout was the place was great. One large bedroom with an on-suite bath and two smaller bedrooms, one with sliding glass doors to the patio. I loved that the kitchen, dining, living room were so open to the patio - great for small group or family hanging out.

- TV and stereo system hooked up to the outside with full cable

- Possibly the best feature was the saltwater pool - so much nicer than chlorine pools.

- Nearby spot: Natures' Heath Food and Cafe was excellent for fresh juices, prepared foods and organic goodies.

- I enjoyed my stay and look forward to going back sometime soon!

Wish we could stay here every weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here! Our friends were getting married in Palm Springs and staying at a house a few blocks away, so we were looking for a property in this neighborhood. My husband and I stayed in the casita and three other couples stayed in the main house. We had plenty of room; even though the house is not huge it is well laid out, well maintained, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We also spent much of our time in the glorious salt water pool! The weather was so warm we didn't even turn the pool heat on all weekend and it was the perfect temperature. It was very lovely to relax in the pool surrounded by beautiful native plants and fruit trees in the yard and to look up at the clear blue sky and mountains. I also really appreciated the small things, like the extra pool towels that were provided and the water filter inside the fridge. When it came time to visit our friends, we enjoyed the walk down Monterey Rd looking at all the lovely mid-century architecture. The house was easy to get to, yet located in a quiet residential neighborhood. On top of it all, Paul was extremely attentive and very professional and prompt with regard to the rental agreement, house information, etc. All eight of us who stayed agreed that we loved the house, would stay there again in a heartbeat, and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
