Overview

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath with Mountain Views

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!

Can't wait to get back

  • 5 of 5

If you're just 2 people (or even 4) and love the idea of staying in a house in Palm Springs (rather than a hotel) then you can't go past this property.

Hank is easy to deal with, quick to respond, and his house is located in the most picturesque part of Palm Springs, the prestigious Vista Las Palmas. It's so close to the mountains you can almost touch them while sitting in the pool! Do yourself and favour and use the 2 bikes provided to take a cycle around the neighborhood.

If you love midcentury, then this place is super stylish both inside and out, and the photo opportunities are endless.

From towels to kitchen appliances and condiments, everything you need is right there to feel completely at home in an enviable setting.

Cool vibes and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this mid-century modern home! The house was extremely clean. It was also spacious and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend - the kitchen had everything and more in terms of utensils, cookware and appliances which was awesome. The pool is fantastic and lights up beautifully with the trees in the yard at night. The house is located in a beautiful and very quiet neighborhood and you could walk downtown. Hank (owner) was highly responsive when we needed something so you can feel confident that you'll be taken care of! Would definitely stay here again.

A great house for enjoying Palm Springs.

  • 5 of 5

I have rented properties for extended stays in Palm Springs a number of times, and this is far and away the best I've experienced. Both the architecture and carefully appointed interior offered an excellent glimpse into the mid-century ambiance that Palm Springs has become known for. The owner could not have been more accommodating or responsive to requests. The location is perfect. Overall an excellent stay.

Midcentury modern perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This is my new favorite rental in Palm Springs! So tastefully and stylishly decorated while honoring it's midcentury roots. Really smart layout with bedrooms nicely separated from public spaces. Gorgeous pool bookended by palm trees that reach the stars! Great outdoor dining area. And as mentioned the entire surrounding neighborhood is full of amazing midcentury architecture and desert landscaping. Definitely take advantage of the bikes provided for exploring and getting to town which is super close by. Hank is also a kind and laid back host - he let us stay late into the afternoon on our last day since no other guest was booked for that evening, so nice of him to let us milk the last few hours of sunshine in the pool. Thanks for a fantastic weekend, Hank, I'm definitely coming back!

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for Labor Day weekend/as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday and it was perfect. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful, we took an early evening bike ride (on the bikes provided) just to check out all the amazing architecture! The house was very clean and wonderfully decorated. We spent most of our time grilling, (on the new fabulous grill) and lounging around in the pool. I highly recommend this home for anyone looking to explore how beautiful and relaxing Palm Springs can be.
