A classic 1961 Alexander home designed by Charles Dubois, this house is mostly original, except for the kitchen which underwent a sleek update a while back. While 1800 sf may be on the smaller side for this neighborhood, this house is big on charm and one of the best priced options you will find. The history of Vista Las Palmas is star-studded with celebrity homes, and is a Mecca for lovers of modernist architecture from all over the world. It's just a 10 or 15 minute walk to Palm Canyon Drive and Palm Springs' best and hippest restaurants and shopping.
Many vintage furnishings by George Nelson, Irving Harper, the Eameses etc. in the home set the mood for modern living. The living area is light-filled and 3 sets of sliders invite you out to the pool, which is in the south-facing backyard looking out to the mountains. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need.
The master bedroom is spacious, with a king-sized bed, TV and an en suite bath which boasts a roman tub with a window wall to the magnificent morning view.
This house is updated with many modern conveniences like Wi-Fi, but it is not tricked out. Modernists will love the vintage character of this home.
Please tell me something about you and your party when you request your reservation to make sure this is a good fit.
Also, let me know if you want the pool heated for your stay and I will make sure the quote reflects that.
Thanks for looking!
Modernist and Desert Lover!
I welcome you to discover the joys of desert living and appreciate the legacy the Modernists left for us here is PS - especially the homes of Vista Las Palmas.
Hank purchased this house in 1999
What a pleasant surprise it was to rent this gem of a home! It had plenty of space for us, an inviting pool, and a beautiful floor plan that made enjoying the warm evenings following our closely-located conference all the better. The home was clean, well organized, & in an amazing location right in the middle of many celebrity homes. We are looking forward to returning again!
Was great to stay in Hank's house. Like staying in a film set. Lots of nice touches around the place. Of particular note, the bedroom looks great and the bed's very comfortable. Take a walk around the neighbourhood for umpteen mid century houses to drool over.
We spent 3 days in this amazing home and loved it-- what a nice surprise. Everything in the house and back yard were in excellent shape, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. We walked for 3 hours through this historic neighborhood, which is packed with architectural icons and homes of celebrities from 30's & 40's. The main shopping/restaurant street, Palm Canyon Dr is a short walk away. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful home to relax and enjoy all that Palm Springs has to offer. The owner made the transaction very simple. Hope to stay here again.
This was our second stay at the property and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The house has everything you need and more. Hank upgraded the BBQ since last time, very nice, and added Apple TV, very cool. The pool was great and we took full advantage. Amazing neighbourhood gives you a sense of privacy and affordable luxury. Needless to say, we'll be back :)
I've stayed in this home before almost a year ago and was so excited that it was available for a second stay. The house has a beautiful open floor plan that makes it feel light and airy - perfect for relaxation. It's in an extremely stylist neighborhood that makes for great evening bike rides to check out the architecture. The kitchen is equipped with everything you'd need to stay in and cook all your meals (like we usually do). I can tell that in the next few years it will need some extra TLC with new paint and small repairs but both times I've stayed it was spotlessly clean upon arrival. I've stayed at a few different homes now in Palm Springs but this remains my favorite and I can't wait to come back for a third time!
