About Property Mgr: Nick - Owner: Debra

Originally from San Antonio, I (Debra) moved to Los Angeles in the mid 90's. I worked in production where I met my husband, Glenn. We settled into the Hollywood Hills where we are raising our children. I'm a big fan of our community and southern California. I always wanted to be an emissary for those who want to learn more about where we live and what's so much fun about it. I own two vacation homes in the heart of Hollywood that I manage and with my love of the California Desert and Mid Century Modern Architecture, I had a dream to own a house in Palm Springs. The opportunity arose and I took it. Some of the things I love most are summer nights at the Hollywood Bowl located in the heart of Hollywood and riding the Tramway to the top of the mountain in Palm Springs.

We look forward to having you!

Property Mgr: Nick - Owner: Debra purchased this house in 2013

Why Property Mgr: Nick - Owner: Debra chose Palm Springs

I love the heat and the sun so Palm Springs became a regular getaway for my family. I grew very fond of mid century modern architecture and began my research on neighborhoods in Palm Springs along with the different mid century developments and architects. When the opportunity arose I took it. This fabulous home in the Historic Raquet Club Estates became available and I made an offer immediately. I spent the entire summer of 2013 in Palm Springs working to bring this home back to its original glory. I hope you love it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

When I walked in the door of this home for the first time my eyes were drawn to the vaulted ceilings and the original boomerang shape swimming pool. It had that Palm Springs 'Jetsons' feel that I was looking for. I also loved the fact that most Alexanders are 3 bedroom 2 baths but this home was 4 bedroom 3 baths with a bonus room in the back. The yard was spacious enough to build a bocce ball court and a giant chess set which is a nod to the Historic Racquet Club where many movie stars such as Clark Gable and Jane Russel used to play. The home is the epitome of fun!

Perfect place to end the summer!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed here in August right before going back to work after a long summer vacation. It was amazing! The decor of the house was absolutely beautiful and the bright orange and green colors were so inspiring to me that I even did a little redecorating in my own house when I got back home! The owner, Debra, definitely has great taste when it comes to interior design.

The house was very spacious and the extra bonus room at the end of the house was a great way to get a little privacy and quiet time if needed. The beds were heavenly... super comfortable. We spent 90% of our days in the pool, which was the perfect temperature, and we spent our evenings cooking meals in the kitchen and relaxing on the roomy couch watching Netflix. It was such a nice house that we didn't even want to go out to town while we were there!

My only complaint is that we didn't get to stay longer, as it was truly the best getaway vacation I had all summer. I can't wait to book my next trip there next summer!

Beautiful Mid Century Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

We came to celebrate our 10th anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. We loved hanging out by the pool and playing bocce ball in the evenings. The house is very centrally located, with easy access to grocery stores and downtown. The casita that adjoins the house is adorable and gives a great option for a separate living area. We can't wait to come back and enjoy it again.

This mid century getaway was ideal in every way

  • 5 of 5

This rental has something for everyone. You could cook and dine home in the well appointed kitchen. You can lounge by the pool. You can dine out or shop the nearby stores on Palm Canyon. Everything is perfect -- the style/design, the location, the amenities, etc. Plus, it isn't easy to find such a midcentury gem with 4 bedrooms. NOTE-- this one has an addition that is its own separate apartment for those picky friends or stand-offish relatives who need a bit more space. It was relaxing to stay somewhere so tasteful and modern/clean. Every item appears hand-curated with a great sense of style and sense of humor. We had the best time!

Love it!!

  • 5 of 5

As a big fan of the TV show "Mad Men" I can not recommend this place highly enough!

The house is decorated so stylish. It looks like Don Draper's California dream pad.

The pool was perfect for our young son (7) and we had a great time playing chess on the giant chess set.

And then when it was time to go downtown we just took a little stroll and there we were.

It was extremely private. And really close to the Albertsons where we got our groceries.

The only thing we would do differently next time is bring more people.

There are so many bed rooms. Time to have a Palm Springs party!!!

Stylish Palm Springs Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house was even nicer than it looks in the pictures. All the furniture is very comfortable, the pool and outside areas were perfectly maintained and everything was very user-friendly. We have been thinking about who else we could invite to share a weekend there with us. It is a place that is not so precious you can't relax, but It is still beautifully appointed and very stylish.

Amazing Palm Springs MId-century Modern!

  • 5 of 5

The home has been completely renovated with all of the original mid-century modern details intact. Beautiful design with all new furnishings. The layout of the home is great and has several areas to relax. The kitchen had all new cookware, plates, glasses. The outdoor area is very well maintained and has a great pool, lounge area, bocce ball and giant chess set. You have a great view of the mountains while floating in the pool. The home is located a few minutes away from great restaurants and shops. We mostly spent time in the pool but there is great hiking trails, golf courses and spas nearby. We had a fun, relaxing weekend. Highly recommended!

Gotta have sunshine? Palm Springs is your place!! This desert city is filled with fabulous local and fun attractions. Our home is located minutes away from the famous Tramway. You can take the Tramway from the bottom of the desert to the top of San Jacinto Mountain where you can enjoy hiking during the fall, spring and summer and cross country skiing during the winter. It is breath taking when we are hanging out in the pool during the winter and looking up at the snow on the mountains above. A family favorite is the Palm Springs Village Festival which takes place every Thursday evening on Palm Canyon Drive in Down Town Palm Springs. It is only minutes away from our home. If you enjoy hiking we will have an information book that includes some local hiking trails along with favorite restaurants and shops.
