circa 1965, 'The Schwartz House' , designed by Hal Levitt, well known mid-century architect of the famous Trousdale Estates. Hal Levitt homes are popular among many celebrities including Jennifer Aniston.
This truly one of a kind house is referred to by Palm Springs experts as 'One of the top three homes in Palm Springs'. This home has been featured on the modernist tour, was in Lucky magazine, was in several 'Design Within Reach' catalogs and more. This home is truly like living in a piece of art. We know your jaw will drop and you will say 'WOW' when you enter this home!
Unlike most mid-century modern homes, this quintessential Palm Springs home is almost 4,000 square feet of living space. The walls of glass take advantage of the breathtaking views of the San Jacinto mountains.
This open floor plan home with polished concrete floors has two living areas... the main living room and the step down groovy lounge that provides a great place for intimate conversations or to relax and read a book. These two areas are 'connected' by the unbelievably beautiful see-through gas fireplace with the hippest tile work from the mid-century. All living areas have jaw dropping mountain views. The home features a large step up dining area that seats 8 people for meals, drinks, games or just great conversation. The atrium also seats 8 people for eating under the stars or enjoying views of the palm trees.
The gourmet kitchen has stainless appliances and everything you need in a kitchen including pots, pans, dishes, trays., toaster, microwave, blender, coffee pot, quesadilla maker, waffle maker and much more. The island offers several bar stools for people to keep you company while you cook.
It has four large bedrooms each with their own full bathroom, own flat screen TV with cable, large closets, and each with access to the outside directly from the bedroom. The private outside access from each bedroom is very unique and is perfect for sitting outside for an early morning coffee or a late night drink, without disturbing the others in the house. The bedrooms have 3 Kiing size beds and 1 queen. Each has upscale, beautiful bedding...not you typical rental bedding! High thread count sheets, duvets, nice pillows, etc.
If you want a private pool with stunning views, you found the perfect house. The pool and spa are salt water so you are not soaking in toxic chlorine.The pool area has lots of comfortable seating for lounging or sitting. It also has a beautiful sculpture/fountain, stainless steel gas grill, fruit trees, umbrella and and the world's best pool floats. It is completely private and can't be seen by any neighbors.
Now...lets talk location! Located in the most desirable area of Palm Springs known as South Palm Springs. This home is in walking distance to the hip Ace Hotel and Swim Club and the local favorite coffee shop called Koffi. It is also very close to the main strip in Palm Springs that has lots of shops and cafes.
This non-smoking home also has high speed wireless internet, unlimited long distance calling, 3 DVD players, lots of movies on DVD, amazing stereo system, a 500 CD changer, numerous CDs, board games, 2 car garage, washer/dryer and more.
This home is privately owned and managed so you get first class personal attention during your entire rental process. We love our home and know you will too! Call us today to book your vacation.

We ABSOLUTELY love our home. We first saw it in 2004 when there were already 2 other offers in on it to purchase. From 2004-2011 we looked at dozens and dozens of homes in Palm Springs but never found one as amazing and unique as this home. We were thrilled in 2011 when the house went back on the market and we were able to buy it. If you appreciate mid-century architecture, you will see why we love this house so much. There is so much we love about Palm Springs but mostly it is relaxing by the pool, the stunning views and our morning hikes.
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
We have been coming to Palm Springs every year and fell in love with this neighborhood. It is walking distance to almost everything yet it is so incredibly quiet. The views when you walk in this neighborhood are breathtaking.
We are close to everything, have unobstructed mountain views in a very quiet neighborhood, I love nothing more than walking to the local favorite Koffi for a coffee in the morning.
Our family had a great visit to this beautiful house. All six adults plus two children really enjoyed the house -- we grilled out, swam in the large pool, lounged in the hot tub, and picked oranges. At night, we loved the gas fireplace in the den / living room. The fire made it feel like a lodge, especially with views of the surrounding hills and mountains. We also loved the location and being able to walk to coffee shops and a few great eating options (and we were only a mile and a half from some excellent hiking trails (we did the same hike a few times because it was so nice)). All in all, a great place and great visit. Highly recommended.
Friends and family traveled from Atlanta for Thanksgiving week to enjoy Palm Springs and the surrounding area. This house is fantastic in that it is very beautiful yet comfortable and in a fantastic location. We walked to the center of town from the house, went on area hikes, and even spent a day at Joshua Tree National Park. You can do everything from total relaxation at the house and/or use it as a base to enjoy the area. And the owners are great to work with before your arrival and even after you are there. Highly recommend this place.
Our wedding could not have been better! This house was the perfect venue for us. We needed a space comfortable enough to hold the 40 family and friends we invited, and the house did not disappoint! The home made quite the impression on everyone as they were all absolutely bowled over by this spectacular space. The wedding flowed very nicely, no waiters got in the way, and there was enough room to spread out. Everyone had a place to eat, though we just needed a few high top tables on the patio, but most people were able to sit. We were also truly blessed with wonderful weather so everything could be outside, including the ceremony.
After the wedding, we stayed for a week and enjoyed the wonderful heated pool and weather. Being MCM aficionados, we had great reverence for the design of the house and its flowing open floor plan for daily living. One moves seamlessly from inside to outside, and visa versa. The 1965 designed sunken lounge or "conversation pit" as it was called then, was a novel item to everyone. We enjoyed the two way gas fireplace (in the living room and lounge). At one point we had 12 people enjoying "conversation."
Since we had not ever been to the house in person, we needed to work very closely with the owners over long distance (we live in Chicago). We could not have asked for any better owners than Jane and Mark. In preparation for our wedding, they completely updated their landscaping which was so beautiful and appropriate for the house. They also met beforehand with our caterer to help give him an idea of the space and suggestions on where to locate things like the buffet table, bar and high tops.
Being classic car buffs, we just had to have our 1965 Bonneville convertible there too. Mark and Jane went far beyond what normal owners would do; they kindly took delivery of our vintage car and kept an eye on it until we arrived.
This is one special house and will be remembered by many for a long long time. Thank you so much Jane and Mark.
My partner and I looked about about 150 homes when deciding where to stay in Palm Springs. We wanted a mid-century modern home with a view and in South Palm Springs (the best area of Palm Springs). As soon as we opened the rental ad we knew we wanted to stay in this home. We even changed our travel dates to be able to rent this house....we are SO glad we did. This home is unbelievably perfect! It is well appointed with the perfect combination of mid-century furnishings and modern luxury. The pictures are exactly how the home looks (which was a welcome change to other homes we have rented in the past). We have already booked this house again for next year...and we are counting the days!
Too many great things to list but some of our favorites about this house are: walls of glass, super light and bright, mid-century furnishings, views, privacy, large rooms, immaculate home, south palm springs location and MUCH MORE!!!! We have been coming to Palm Springs for 15 years and rent a different house each trip. However, that has now changed...this is the only house we will now rent if it is available. By far this is the nicest house in Palm Springs we have ever seen. Now we know why there is so much talk about this home! Thanks for letting us rent your home and thanks for being such a pleasure to work with!
I don't even know where to start. We saw this home on the modernism tour in 2014 and were blown away. What a treat that we got to stay here! The owners don't allow many rentals each year so we were thrilled when our dates were available. We have been going on the modernism tour for many, many years. This home is absolutely one of the top 3 homes we have ever seen in Palm Springs. The second we walked in the door our jaws dropped. The floor to ceiling glass, the bright rooms, the views, the furnishings, the pool and so much more. We love that each bedroom has its on bath and each room is super roomy with its own closet. The pool is much bigger and deeper than most pools we have seen in Palm Springs. The privacy is fantastic at the pool as no one can see in the back yard due to a mid-century wall and lots of tall trees and shrubs. Stay here...you will be blown away too! We WILL be back!
