Property description

This 'Quintessential Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern House' has been beautifully maintained since it was built in 1957; additional upgrades and enhancements such as large Sony HD flat-screen TVs and wired/wireless broadband internet bring together the best of the 60's time-capsule experience with modern techno-geek conveniences. The design aesthetic is pure 'Mad Men', right down to the pink tile bathrooms, Danish-Modern furniture, & funky retro lamps (Think 'Mad Men meets Google'). Each bedroom is a Mini-Master with private bathroom. The spacious living room opens out to the large yard and swimming pool area creating a perfect entertainment 'flow'.

I've personally sampled other vacation-rentals in the area and know what it's like to be disappointed with a cheaply done IKEA & kitsch decor, so I strive to make this house an authentic Palm Springs retro experience. There's an huge library of all High-Def movies (over 600 classic and new release movies) that can be viewed 'on-demand' (free of charge) from every room via the AppleTVs.

There is a 3 Night minimum stay (and I'm sorry but there are no exceptions to the 3-night rule so please don't ask).
