Overview

Palm Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Authentic Alexander House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Experience dazzling desert Mid-Century Modern architecture at this authentic Alexander vacation home that was collaboratively designed and constructed by renowned California architects Palmer & Krisel, and developer Robert Alexander.

This midcentury modern vacation house is located in Palm Springs' tranquil Little Beverly Hills neighborhood, and is situated directly along the Mesquite Golf & Country Club golf course. This rare protected view lot boasts spectacular, unobstructed views of the San Jacinto Mountains, as well as acres of palm trees that fill the grassy fairways of the award-winning PGA golf course out front.

The home showcases iconic angular desert Mid-Century Modern architecture, which includes an open concept floor plan, vaulted high ceilings, and unique exposed wood beams and natural ceiling planks. The floor-to-ceiling "walls of glass" create a bright, airy indoor ambiance that merge indoor living with the outdoor desert. Experience breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountains from one side, and the tranquil, private garden and swimming pool oasis on the other.

The spacious home is thoughtfully appointed with new modernist furnishings inspired by famous midcentury modern designer icons. Highlights include an authentic Herman Miller Eames® Elliptical Table (popularly known as the 'Surfboard' coffee table), stylish yet comfortable living chairs, and raised modern beds with luxury mattresses and hotel quality linens in each bedroom.

The fully private and walled tropical back yard oasis features a large 'legacy size' swimming pool and a custom in-ground resort style jetted spa. Relax in chaise lounges underneath an island oasis of gently swaying palm trees and the tranquil sounds of the infinity waterfall that cascades into the pool.

A covered lanai spanning the length of the house provides available shade and features an outdoor dining table for alfresco dining. Enjoy a succulent pink grapefruit that you pick from the grapefruit tree. After sunset, the entire garden and palm trees are softly illuminated with ground lighting. Gaze at the evening stars while you relax in the six-person private spa with therapeutic water jets.

About Michael

Michael, owner, with Loki, Pembroke Corgi living the desert lifestyle in downtown Palm Springs. Thank you for visiting our site! We have enormous pride in our vacation house and our goal is to provide each guest with courteous, responsive service.

Michael purchased this house in 2009

Why Michael chose California Desert

In 2008 a group of close friends from Seattle rented this delightful mid-century modern home for a winter escape from the rain and cold. We all fell instantly in love with the magical desert 'zen' that this home provided. Despite all the nearby attractions and activities, we found ourselves spending the majority of our four lazy days lounging by (and in!) the private pool, soaking up the sun, and grilling lunch and dinner poolside. At night we all enjoyed the wonderful sensation of slowly immersing ourselves into the jetted hot tub and gazing upwards at the stars. Three years later we discovered that this home was for sale. We didn't hesitate a second to purchase this vacation home for ourselves, families, and friends. As our guests, we trust you will have an equally memorable stay at our 'home away from home!'

What makes this house unique

This vacation home is located on a highly sought-after panoramic View Lot bordering the Mesquite Country Club PGA golf course. The dining, living, guest rooms, and private front yard feature completely unobstructed views of a beautifully landscaped PGA 18-hole golf course. In the backdrop, there are breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountain range. Just a few steps away is a meandering 4-mile looped paved walking/running/biking trail for energetic morning run, or a relaxing afternoon stroll shaded by palm trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! We had a fantastic holiday in your home. Can't say enough about the house, neighborhood and Palm Springs. Thanks for the extra care when the electricity hiccup happened - again wow! Know that we'll definitely be back!

Amazing House - Perfect Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Alexander house for our 10-year anniversary, so we really wanted to find the perfect place. Just pulling up to the house we knew we found the perfect house. Across the street is an enormous golf course. It felt like our own private resort because you couldn't see any other houses from any of the windows or from the yard--just palm trees and the mountains. The house was very clean and totally stocked with everything we needed. Everything inside was new/modern, but with retro decorating that made it fun. The master bedroom and living room have full length windows so that you always see the pool and palm trees (which gave us that constant feeling of being on vacation). The backyard is totally private. We spent most of our time lounging by the pool and watching the palm trees sway. The house is relatively close by a grocery store, but would recommend a car to get into town (we did Uber). Michael and Scott were awesome owners to deal with and were very responsive to our questions to help plan the trip down (our first time to Palm Springs). We will definitely be back!

Mid-Century Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home with absolutely everything you need for a fabulous vacation. Pool and spa are heaven. Beds so comfortable you don't want to get up. Every kitchen gadget you can think of, even a waffle iron! But since you're only 5 minutes from yummy restaurants and shops.....take your pick. You can tell the owners pull out all the stops to make your stay the best experience possible. Highly recommend to all.

Secret Gem - Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

I'm hesitant to post this amazing review because this house will be booked and we won't be able to reserve it again! But this house and owners were fabulous. We have stayed at numerous rentals in Palm Springs over the years and this house outclasses every other one. The house itself and views were amazing. Everything was well appointed, very clean, stylish and comfortable. The kitchen is modern and stocked well--real knives, cookware set, platters, and even some pantry items. The pool, spa and back yard are totally private and were divine--pool floats and BBQ area. The only disappointment was that we didn't book a longer stay--we didn't want to leave. Thank you again for the wonderful, authentic Palm Springs experience.

From the moment we walked through the front door I knew that this house was special...well decorated, very clean and comfy, a convenient location and a private backyard with a great pool and spa area which I used every night! I very much enjoyed my stay and am looking forward to a return visit...it was a perfect relaxing golf getaway! Thanks!

So Happy Again on My Second Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home a few years back and thought it was wonderful. Having returned for another stay, I can say it has gone beyond wonderful to pure paradise. When I walked in I felt like I was in that travel commercial as it was just magical, stunning, and gorgeous. The owners take incredible care of this home. Little changes here and there just added to the enjoyment. Our favorite part of this home was being able to lay in the master bedroom and view the lights of the pool and the stunning backyard from the bed. Just a wonderful and tranquil way to fall asleep at night. The pool has been redone with new tile in what I think is an authentic 50s color palate--I am pretty sure the tile was much darker before and now it is bright and captures the mid century modern experience. Capturing a bit of desert life in the 1950s is what makes Palm Springs so much fun. There is just nothing missing with this home as the owners have thought of everything and were very responsive to questions I had on good restaurants. And the gift basket was a nice touch. Very thoughtful. We will be back again for sure on my next trip to Palm Springs. Just a great place!
