***THIS PROPERTY IS NOT LISTED ON CRAIG'S LIST***
Capture the spirit, design and lifestyle of Hollywood’s Golden Age amidst one of the most dramatic settings of natural desert beauty in South Palm Springs. Located on the 8th fairway of the North Course, this 1963 midcentury modern ranch home is nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains in the historical Indian Canyons Neighborhood known for its year-round sunshine, unrivaled golf experience, distinctive architecture and A-list celebrities. This gorgeous desert retreat has been newly remodeled and furnished from head to toe by the PS design 'dream team' of H3K. Inspired by the Hollywood Regency design with a modern twist, the décor is a stunning display of glamour and glitz combined with a sophisticated elegance that captures the magic and fun of Palm Springs living.
The welcoming entry courtyard with its citrus yellow double doors and sputnik chandelier sets an immediate dramatic tone, which carries into the grand living space. Designed to facilitate relaxing and easy entertaining, the sweeping open floor plan provides a seamless flow between inside and outside using floor-to-ceiling glass walls and sliding doors to take advantage of the stunning mountain and golf course views. The furnishings and decorations include low sofas, slipper chairs, mirrored chests, bold patterned wallpaper, lacquered accents and pop art…all reminiscent of the lavish Art Deco inspired Hollywood film sets of the 1930’s melded with the sleek lines and minimalism of Palm Springs modern design. The cool white walls and shiny tile floors provide a soothing backdrop to the bold pops of color in peacock blue, apple green and canary yellow. Designer lighting and deluxe finishes add ambiance and elegance to the home.
Presiding over the living room is Nancy Sinatra where you can take-in a movie on the 46” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player or gather for conversation with friends around the blue crystal gas fireplace. You’ll enjoy preparing meals in this sleek, fully equipped kitchen with contemporary cabinets, white tile backsplash, charcoal gray quartz countertops and GE Profile stainless steel appliances including 5-burner gas range, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave/convection oven and wine cooler. Plus, the kitchen is stocked with all the necessary accouterments for preparing and serving a scrumptious gourmet meal.
There are several dining choices to meet your entertainment needs. A large breakfast bar is perfect for quick meals or watching the chef whip up some fancy cocktails. A bistro table & chairs located in the front courtyard is ideal for sipping morning coffee or drinking a glass of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice from your own tree while gazing at the soaring western views of Mt. San Jacinto. If you prefer a more formal setting, entertain your family or guests in the swanky indoor dining area that seats six. And for magical dining under the stars, there is an outdoor table overlooking the pool with breathtaking evening views of the canyons and fairway greens.
Pamper yourself in the luxurious master suite furnished with comfort and tranquility in mind. At night, the striking padded headboard, smoky geometric wallpaper, high quality linens and black out shades create a cocoon affect so you can sleep until noon. This private master retreat is well appointed with a CA King bed, sitting area, 46” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player, IPOD doc, ceiling fan, access to the pool and spa through glass sliding doors and expansive vistas of greenbelts, mountains and the backyard oasis. The sumptuous en suite bath offers a sensuous double shower with custom glass enclosure and designer tile, both rain and hand held shower heads, double vanity sinks, high end fixtures and large walk-in closet with built in dresser.
The guest bedroom is also a wonderful respite with a CA King bed, 30” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player, IPOD doc, ceiling fan, large closet and direct western mountain views. The dedicated guest bath has a shower / tub combination with tile surround and custom glass doors, new modern fixtures and a door to the outside yard. There is also a convenient guest bath at the opposite end of the house with pool access. It contains a large walk-in shower with rain showerhead, custom tile, glass surround and beautiful modern fixtures.

Owner / Manager purchased this house in 2012
The Indian Canyons neighborhood is known for its historical significance, large and quiet private lots, panoramic mountain views and close proximity to downtown Palm Springs. You can easily walk a couple of blocks to the golf clubhouses and restaurants, Koffi coffeeshop or the trendy Ace Hotel. Or, you can also walk to the Smoke Tree Shopping Center for great casual restaurants like the best Vegan restaurant in town, as well as Vietnamese and Chicago style pizza. Plus, you are only a short drive or bike ride to downtown Palm Springs and other fun desert attractions.
The panoramic views of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains from every room in the house are what make this home truly special. Adjacent to the 8th fairway of the Indian Canyon Golf Course, the expansive greenway and mountain view from the living room, backyard and pool will take your breath away. The cool retro vibe of the living spaces will transport you back to the Golden Hollywood Era with all its glitz and glamour. We invite you to come and experience a resort style vacation in the most beautiful setting in Palm Springs.
This is the place to stay in Palm Springs. We just loved this house. The pool & spa were fantastic. Everything was well appointed and spacious. The mountain views were wonderful. The management, Daria Lightner, was first class & accommodating. The location is close to everything, restaurants, golf etc. We can't wait to come back next year. This is better than a 5 star hotel. Highly recommend.
We rented the Regency Retreat 2 bedroom/3 bath home with another couple for a weekend away from the beach. First, I have to say, we all agreed that the home had beautiful on-line photos and reviews, which lead to us all agreeing to select this home. However, the midcentury modern home was even more amazingly beautiful in person! The interior is hip with a cool twist on the iconic Hollywood Regency Style. The home is comfortable (especially love the master bed), and well appointed. The grounds are gorgeous and there are amazing mountain views from the front & back of property. The neighborhood is one of the best in Palm Springs (and I know the neighborhoods as we just sold our home in PS that we had for the last 13 years). Also, the home backs up to the golf course, but it is completely private when you are in the pool. There is only a small exposed area to the course that allows Golf Cart access and it's on the opposite side of where the pool is. This home was also perfect for us because we have two little shih tzu doggies, and they were SAFE in the backyard as they could not get threw the fence.....It's totally secure for small dogs! Speaking of dogs......One really nice touch was that Daria provided doggie bowls, pooh bags, and treats for my little ones. That was so sweet! I have to say, Daria made the whole process from start to finish so easy, and pain free. She is the BEST! We hope to rent this property again, as we had such a great time.....And we have never slept so good! It's private, quiet, comfortable, and peaceful in this home & neighborhood.
The house was beautiful and well appointed. It was just as expected from the pictures. We particularly enjoyed the pool, which was heated upon our arrival. Beautiful mountain views from the pool. Daria was very helpful and upon our request, provided a beautiful champagne and a cheese platter for our arrival.
This was a perfect location in Palm Springs but still very close to town. It was comfortable and clean. The right size for either one or two couples, and of course a dog. Highly recommend this place for a weekend getaway.
The house is very nice, well appointed, and SPOTLESS. The neighborhood is safe and quite, there is a nice mountain view.
Daria is friendly, and very efficient and responsive. We had a few minor problems that have been fixed very quickly.
We highly recommend the Regency Retreat and this agency.
We leased this home for two glorious months and we're already homesick for "our" (I wish!) vacation home. We found it very clean, just as described and photographed, and in some ways even better! The photo shows a sparse back hedge, but it's matured now so the backyard is very private. Click on the map to see the aerial view close up. You'll see tall dense hedges along neighboring yards. The back hedge is equally full now. At the corner of the yard is a gate for golf cart access. This doesn't interrupt privacy as the cactus & palm landscape island screens view from outside. The Indian Canyons neighborhood is peaceful, the neighbors are quiet, airplane noise is barely discernible, and wind is scarce unlike in other parts of town. We enjoyed the songbirds and hummingbirds. The door by the barbecue allows direct access from the pool to the third bathroom and the laundry room. The huge master bedroom now has drapery & sheers in addition to the privacy blinds. The walk-in closet has a chest of drawers and full-length mirror. The second bedroom's large closet also has a chest of drawers. This bedroom in effect has an "en suite" bath as the bathroom is just steps away. This bathroom, interestingly, has a door exiting to the narrow side yard. It's private from the neighbors and there's a honeysuckle bush there. Both bedrooms have flat screen TVs opposite the beds for optimal viewing. The TV furniture and nightstands have ample drawers/cupboards to store personal things. The kitchen is well appointed with even an under-counter wine refrigerator. We found an eclectic assortment of old books tucked away here and there, and many witty decor items. I liked setting the table mixing and matching placemats, napkins, and glassware with different combinations of objets d'art as centerpieces. We were really digging the snazzy mid-century vibe! One night just for fun we had TV dinners! The very best thing about our stay was the great relationship we had with property managers Daria and Stacy of Palm Springs Property Care. They handled every detail to ensure our vacation was comfortable and carefree. Daria quickly responded to any question or concern. The people they enlist for pool and landscape maintenance, housecleaning, and such are top rate. We highly recommend them to you. We also recommend supper shows at the nearby swanky Purple Room. And if staying for a month, suggest subscribing to The Daily Sun as a good way to learn what's happening all over the Coachella Valley.
The Indian Canyons Golf Resort is within walking distance and boasts 2-18 hole championship golf courses open to the public, 2 clubhouses and 2 restaurants with panoramic views.
