Araby Cove House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Howard Hughes Mini Estate K0002 - This truly unique multi-level home is a mid-century modern desert paradise, including three master suites, a private spa in the downstairs patio, and a luxurious sundeck off of the living room and upstairs bedroom. The crystal blue swimming pool on the lower level comes with its own cabana and diving board.

Recently renovated, the house still faithfully echoes its vintage mid-century roots with original and delicately replicated tiles and fixtures in the bathrooms, a parade of floor-mounted lights guiding you toward the home, as well as a kitchen with its original appliances.

Perfectly designed to accommodate three couples, every bedroom has its own HDTV with satellite television and premium movie channels, an en-suite bathroom, and a king size platform bed. Out in the living room you’ll have the full theater experience thanks to a 50 inch HDTV with DVR and surround sound.

Sitting just under Bob Hope’s majestic mountaintop manor, you’ll be treated to an unobstructed 220 degree view overlooking the entirety of Palm Springs. The lovely combination of a desert breeze, undulating palms, and an expanse of stars and city lights will keep you coming back to this upscale escape.

Howard Hughes used to own this very property as his Palm Springs getaway, as well as Eva Gabor who you may remember from Green Acres, and Hollywood producer Paul Keyes. Robert Evans from the Godfather chose this as his honeymoon estate, and Smokey Robinson was known to vacation here often.

Lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

This house was gorgeous with a lot of history. The views are gorgeous and the pool is perfect with lots of trees around. I love how the back yard is separated from The house. It feels like a resort. We don't want to leave! It is only a 10-15 min drive to downtown Palm Springs and 20 mins to Agua Caliente Casino. Best vacation ever
