What makes this house unique

We love our Palm Springs Vacation home in Vista Las Palmas for so many reasons: only moments from downtown Palm Springs by car, or a short walk or bike ride, the amazing views like no where else in Palm Springs, the bright open rooms, the fantastic mid-century design and the huge pool and new spa, perfect for swimming or lounging. We have furnished the house with a cool mix of mid-century and modern pieces, to capture the unique Palm Springs experience. It is so convenient to be walking distance to downtown, with great restaurants, shops and bars, as well as 5 minutes from the aerial tramway and mountain canyons, with hiking, biking and sightseeing. We know you are going to love it too!

Mid Century Masterpiece

  • 5 of 5

The home is amazing. Clean, comfortable, and fun. Everything worked perfectly. The pool was warm, the hot tub was hot, the beds are all very comfortable. The decor of the house is spot on. Overall atmosphere was amazing.

Bob the host was very friendly, thoughtful and helpful.

The neighborhood is a classic mid century modern area with every house looking fantastic and authentic. The location is close to wonderful restaurants and downtown Palm Springs. It's also very close to golf, tennis, and a quick drive to Palm Desert.

45 minute drive to Josua Tree. 1.5 hour drive to Newport Beach.

We're really hoping to stay at this house again sometime soon!

An amazing mid-century house in a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

The house is everything that's promised and much more; Sparkling clean, in perfect condition. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly want, including all of the pantry basics a cook might need, the linens are top notch, the beds are heavenly (coming from someone who has a bad back) and the pool and yard are absolutely beautiful. The neighborhood is lovely - lots of fun to walk around and view all of the gorgeous mid century homes. So glad we chose to stay here while in Palm Springs.

Impeccable mid-century!!!

  • 5 of 5

An incredible home (actually, that's an understatement!), the quintessential Palm Springs experience at it's best. This was exactly what we were looking for: sophisticated property, sophisticated area. We wanted to relax & enjoy the beauty of the San Jacinto mountains, while taking in the mid-century experience-& this home didn't disappoint. We specifically did not want a party neighborhood, yet wanted to enjoy the property & all it's amenities-did I mention the gorgeous pool???!!! We've rented many homes on our vacations, but this one is certainly at the very top of our "return to" list!!!

I love this house. My wife and I just spent 11 nights there and are two "adult" kids joined us for 4 nights---each had a queen sized bed so no sniping re who got what room because they were both excellent.

The house is if anything, better than the photos depict. Russ is a fantastic owner. Always responsive and always prompt in responding. Bob, his concierge, is a real pro and a nice man. We only had one question but Bob picked up on the first ring, gave me a steer, and was always available should the need have arisen.

The "back patio" which is a covered area behind the pool affords stunning mountain views and has good wi-fi so you can tend to all internet related needs while you enjoy your good fortune at staying at such a great and private property.

Everything in the house works as you'd expect. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen has all you'd need/want-though we ate out more than we ate in. The pool is super. We did not use the spa but for those who like spas, this one is perfectly situated.

I cannot recommend this property w/any greater level of enthusiasm. Thanks Russ and Bob. We all had a great time!! See ya next year!

Amazing View and Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visit Palm Springs at least once a year. We won't hesitate to rent this home again. The neighborhood is amazing, perfect for those who are wanting a relaxing and peaceful vacation. The home had everything you would need. As well perfect for walking into town for shopping, but far enough away that you don't hear a single sound at night. We loved this house. I can't say enough about the views of the foothills right infront of the house.

Picture perfect, better in person

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here 11 nights in January 2016. The listing description is true and the reviews are genuine. I'm adding my comments because I want the right people to find this perfect house in the future.

The pictures are accurate. There are no blemishes just out of frame. No deception. This is a lovely house, renovated in the spirit of mid-mod but freely using modern materials and appliances where those are superior. The kitchen is well equipped and completely functional. The appliances are *not* 60 years old! Cooks will be glad this isn’t the “all-electric kitchen of tomorrow”. They'll find all the pots, bowls, gadgets, and tools they need stored away in the deep drawers under the counters. The bathrooms have rain showers and simple glass walls. The windows are double-glazed. The sliding glass patio doors are modern and well fitted. The pool doesn’t stink of chlorine, as it would have in 1955. Everything is picture perfect, and better in person.

Some things you can’t see in the pictures…

Storage in the bedrooms. This is the architecture of my youth. I love the high ceilings and clerestory windows. But I remember what these houses looked like with a family in residence — bright open rooms choked with clutter. (The architect’s vision had never included people.) Some mid-mod houses are only beautiful when they’re empty. I am very happy to say that’s not an issue here. Every bedroom has a deep, wall-length closet. Behind sliding doors are a dresser, rails with hangers, and long shelves. You can unpack three car loads of luggage, roll the doors shut, and... Tidiness Achieved!

Sight lines. I loved reading in the wingback chair in the living room, facing the tall kitchen windows that look out on the mountains. One morning I realized someone had sat there before me and arranged the room to frame that view of the mountains.

Privacy. The xeriscaped yard looks completely open, but it’s subtly divided into privacy zones. The covered patio at the back of the property has expansive views of pool and mountains, but the spa and master bedroom door are screened by a raised planting. You can soak in the spa unobserved by your guests on the patio.
