This unique studio is located in the historic Racquet Club Garden Villas which was designed by the famed mid-century architect, William F. Cody. This is the place where the most famous of the film stars and celebrities gathered while in Palm Springs. This lovely 500 square foot condo was completely re- done from floor to ceiling with all new appliances and furnishing in August of 2012. It is in a gated community of 37 units and is located just minutes from the airport and downtown Palm Springs with it excellent restaurants and trendy shops.
It can sleep up to four. In the large living room there is a queen size Murphy bed that folds into the wall when not in use and in addition there is a comfortable new L shaped Sofa that makes into a double bed. All linens are provided.
This unit is unique in that it has a built in wood burning fireplace.
Experience the unique art of famed Adam Stone.
The post and beam architecture with the floor to ceiling glass walls are William F. Cody signature look which breaks the distinction between indoors and outdoors and makes the unit appear much larger.
The grounds designed by Phil Shipley are beautiful with trees everywhere, gardens and a soothing a wandering stream. The view of the San Jacinto Mountains is spectacular and the extra-large swimming pool and spa are very special.
It has a new full size stainless steel kitchen, complete with dishes, utensils, pots & pans, bowls, icemaker and an outdoor BBQ for your cooking and meal preparation convenience. There is also a private washer and dryer for your convenience.
There is a new flat screen TV and WiFi Internet.
My wife and I who have been married for 44 years live in Palm Springs. Until we retired five years ago, we owned a fine art printing studio and a 10,000 sq. ft. art gallery in Palos Verdes, California. As you can see from the photos the unit is extensively decorated with the works of several well know artists. Before starting the printing studio and the art gallery, we lived in Europe and India for many years. I am an American and my wife is German born. She speaks German, English and French.
We manage the units ourselves and look forward to meeting and greeting you.
Wayne Headrick purchased this studio in 2012
For many years we lived at the beach and bought a unit in the Garden Villas to come on the weekends when the weather was not so nice on the coast. We grew to love the desert and retired here five years ago.
In our opinion the Garden Villas of the Racquet Club is the most unique and beautiful place in all of the desert. In the Garden Villas there are only 37 units. It is a gated community and this historical place has magnificent grounds, an extra large pool with a fountain and a spa.
This is our second trip to this beautiful property. Everything is as represented in the pictures. The studio has been totally updated with a great kitchen, bathroom, furniture and artwork. The pool and the gardens are a paradise. Parking and wifi are included. Shopping is a short drive away and wonderful restaurants abound. Enjoy the many activities of Palm Springs and neighboring communities. Wayne & Herta are great hosts and will provide you with everything you need.
We really enjoyed this property in Palm Springs. It was in an absolutely beautiful complex with really nice views. It was easy to get to and a quick drive to everything downtown...shops, restaurants and entertainment. The unit was modern, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. I would highly recommend it for a trip to Palm Springs as it was like living in a garden oasis. Wayne and Herta were terrific. Thank you for helping to make our visit so wonderful.
It was our first time in Palm Springs and we really enjoyed our 12 days stay.
Dealing with owners was very professional and prompt. Wayne took care of booking and Herta greeted us on our first day. We had decided to do without a car on this stay and took a taxi from the airport, which is very close. Herta offered to take me to the grocery store this very first day and helped me with shopping. This was something one just can't forget. Thank you sooo much, Herta. It was much, much appreciated. We also knew she is only a phone call away if we needed anything, but we fine.
Condo was clean, spacious, even so with comfortable Murphy bed open, stocked up with everything one possibly needs. We loved window coverings, which allow to see top of palm trees, fruit trees and mountains from the room and yet they protect privacy. But the view of San Jacinto mountain from the front porch is absolutely stunning. Complex grounds and pool area are very beautiful.
We booked a couple of enjoyable tours. They picked us up from our gate and brought us right back. We took taxi to and back to Mountain Tramway, walked to Free Buzz, which took us to downtown for shopping. Also other reasonable bus service is just short walk from the complex. Regardless the unit is close to the entrance, it was very quiet and handy.
We definitely would recommend this unit and would not hesitate to stay again should we visit Palm Springs again.. Thank you Wayne and Herta for letting us stay at your place.
If you want a place to relax this is it. This studio is located in a well-designed older complex in Palm Springs. The units and pool facilities are nestled amidst a grove of palms with a flowing water feature with fountains. It felt as if we had the heated pool and hot tub to ourselves during our stay.
Light and airy best describes the Wayne and Herta’s studio. It is clean, well equipped and thoughtfully decorated. The Murphy bed is indeed very comfortable as other reviewers have noted and is easily opened or closed. Even with the bed open the studio doesn’t feel cramped at all. There is a nice size living space, dining area, a back patio as well as a front porch. We especially enjoyed the view of palm trees from the floor to ceiling windows on opposing walls.
The kitchen has everything you need should you want to eat in. If you are heading to town it is a short drive or you can walk about 10 minutes to catch the free Buzz shuttle. We can also attest to the fact that the roof doesn’t leak and the unit can withstand a severe windstorm. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this studio as a wonderful base for exploring Palm Springs!
We stayed at this place for 6 days as our winter getaway vacation. It is a studio apartment and it works for us just fine. The place is clean and the property is very quiet - just perfect for what we need! We really enjoyed the hot tub and the swimming pool which is just around the corner from the apartment. Short drive to Palm Springs downtown and other attractions. The owners are very attentive to our needs. Will definitely recommend this place and hope to come back to visit again next year! Thanks!
I spent a month in this resort rental while looking for permanent housing in Palm Springs. It was spacious and modern, with all the comforts of home, including a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a side by side frig with ice maker. The owners went out of their way to make me feel at home and provided me with all the extra clean linens and towels needed for an extended stay. The pool is magnificent and dare I even say glamorous. The location is close to downtown Palm Springs, and also easy access to Interstate 10 if you want to get south to Palm Desert, Indian Wells, etc.
The Unit is located in the historic Garden Villas of the Racquet Club. There are 37 units in the complex which is very spacious and covered in beautiful trees, gardens, pools, streams and a very large and unique swimming pool with a fountain.
