About the property

2 Bed/3 Bath, 2,000 Sf Home With Private Pool, Garage, Large Lot

This place is super cool and laid back. Mid century furnishings with a mix of new give it a warm comfortable uncluttered vibe that will keep you coming back. Portable Bose doc makes listening to your ipod so easy. And don't forget to bring your favorite albums -- yes turntable on hand. Don't worry you don't have to walk on egg shells here, relax...we love this place and so will you.

Located in a beautiful residential neighborhood with full time residents and similar homes, this quiet street will make you feel right at home. We love our mid century home and are here enjoying it when you are not. The open-plan living / dining / kitchen look out onto the walled private yard and pool. We just love sitting by the pool or in it -- in our super comfy bean bag pool floats. Grab a frosty mug from the freezer and your favorite beverage and watch the sun drop behind the San Jacinto Mountains poolside.

The large master suite with king size bed and vintage day bed has a newly renovated bathroom with walk in shower. The second bedroom is furnished with a queen bed. There are tons of closets, so unpack and settle in. Our detached family room has large screen tv, dvd, cable tv, high speed wireless internet. The newly renovated kitchen is fully furnished and ready for you to whip up a casual pool side meal. A garage with door opener and washer/dryer make this as close to home as it gets on vacation!

Unpack, spread out, grab a cold one, put your feet up and relax!

About Gail Ringer

Bernard and Gail live in the San Francisco Bay area, and are originally from Chicago. We bought this home to enjoy but thought we would share it when we can't be there. We love it and Palm Springs.

Gail Ringer purchased this house in 2012

Why Gail Ringer chose Ruth Hardy Park

We knew when we drove up that the orange doors and beautiful dessert scape landscaping had to be ours! The mountain view, single level 50's era home, pool, large lot and clean layout -- not to mention, it's Palm Springs, what more could we want.

What makes this house unique

Palm Springs offers a completely different atmosphere, the hot sun, tall palm trees and vintage homes. Our home's location is so close to all the best Palm Springs attractions, as they say location, location, location -- we have it! Not to mention the great atmosphere, neighborhood, the home itself -- wow wish I were there now!

cool mid-century vibe

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the house with the orange door. Gail and Bernard have provided everything one needs for an extended stay. There are even dishes in a mid-century pattern, and we loved the kitschy ashtrays (especially with no cigarettes in them). It was fun going into the casita at night to watch TV. I managed to climb onto the golden goose in the pool (even after recent double knee replacement), and got a great photo to share with my friends. We were in Palm Springs for modernism week, and this was the perfect home base from which to enjoy it. We would definitely rent again on a future trip. Lynette and Steven

Quiet, picturesque neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated, comfortable & fully equipped home. Enjoyed opportunity to ride bikes and dip in the pool. The fireplace was awesome on those cool January evenings. Our host was helpful & prompt in responding to our queries. Perfect for 4 to 6 persons, can sleep up to eight. We loved our two weeks here! S & K, Edmonton, AB

Bernard and Gail,

Having been to PS several times before all I can say is this was THE BEST! Perfect location, beautiful hoe, equipped with everything anyone could want or need, beautiful pool! The bikes were a great addition! I almost don't want too many to find out about it so I can get it when I want it but I also want to tell everyone I meet about it! The layout of the house itself was great. I don't think we have ever enjoyed ourselves soo much!!! This is now the only place we will ever stay in town! THANK YOU SO MUCH for making it available for others like us to enjoy!

Amazing stay at the house w/the orange door

  • 5 of 5

Gail and Bernard were lovely and so attentive to our stay at their beautiful place. There was absolutely nothing missing from the house. Every detail had been considered and we felt pretty lucky to have found this gem. The house was spacious, clean, cozy and ideal for our family of 4. We'd highly recommend and will definitely be our first choice the next time we're in Palm Springs.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days here with our kids and had a fantastic time. The house was spacious and wonderfully decorated to match the period of the home. Great location that is close to everything. The pool was very popular and we spent most of the time in the backyard enjoying this quiet retreat.

I had a ten day, girls getaway with friends and our teenage daughters. We enjoyed our stay so much. The layout of the home is great, it was very clean, and we especially liked having three bathrooms. The pool was our favorite!! Very good sized-we spent most of the day in the backyard! Location was perfect-closeby to everything, yet it was very quiet. Such a relaxing private retreat!
