We love this house!
We love this house!
My husband and I and two boys spent a week in this beautiful home. It's a genuine 1950s Alexander house - and it's perfect in every detail - the house has been restored to its original condition and the 2 bathrooms and kitchen are new. Very clean. Beautiful back yard and large pool with a great view of the mountains. A real treat to stay in such a beautiful and unusual place - so much better than in a hotel! Very clean and comfortable furniture and beds. The place is beautifully decorated and full kitchen with everything you need. Large outdoor covered dining area is great. Huge closets and beautifully fully tiled bathrooms. Quiet neighborhood - but just a short hop to all the restaurants & shopping. We want to come back in the wintertime and escape the St. Louis cold weather. We thought it was a great value and exceptionally clean. Would recommend highly.

My husband and I decided to escape the cold weather and take a well-deserved vacation to Palm Springs and I'm so glad that we found this beautiful home! It is a real showplace - so exotic and stylish! So much better (and more private) than staying in a hotel. This place is very clean and beautifully decorated - it looks like all new furniture and beds. The yard is gorgeous - beautiful palm trees, and the mountain view is breathtaking. Every morning we woke up and went for a swim in that beautiful pool. It's heated so even at night it's perfect. What a treat! New carpet in the bedrooms. Very clean. Full kitchen with all modern appliances but we never turned on the stove - we barbecued on the grill on the patio. It's such a treat to cook out in March - you can't do that in Ohio! And so many good restaurants nearby to choose from. Quiet neighborhood but close to all the tourist spots in Palm Springs. It's such a luxury staying in a beautiful home compared to a noisy hotel. We had a wonderful time and would love to stay here again.

We stayed in this wonderful midcentury home! It was amazing, and had all the comforts of home. Beautiful decorated, and perfect for our family. The kids love the pool and quiet neighborhood. Love spending time in the backyard. We can't wait to come back!

We recently had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic home. It is well kept, has very comfortable beds, a large backyard, heated pool, A.C., & BBQ. The owners are friendly, helpful, and made the transaction easy. I would recommend this place to anyone going to Palm Springs.

Perfect quite house in Palm Spring!
Perfect quite house in Palm Spring!
This home is very relaxing, quite and beautifully landscpaped with great ammenities. Everything you would need. It is much larger than we expected. A classic 1950's Alexander home with a great pool in the back yard. The owner even provided some pool floats and large umbrella for us to use while there (in the utility closet). Large corvered outdoor dining area with a ceiling fan above we used every night. I loved laying in the large hammock strunk between the two orange trees in the back yard with a glass of wine. The 3 large palms trees near the pool offer shade on one end and full sun on the other. Lots of lounge chairs with pads too. There are 2 large step-in showers in each bathroom and they look like they've been recently remodled. Very nice tile work. Extra large closets in the master bedroom. My favorite feature here is the privacy. It is a world unto itself. I would highly recommend this house if you want peace and quiet, yet near all the Palm Springs attractions.

My girlfriends and I couldn't get rooms at our favorite hotel in Palm Springs, so I found this Mid-century Modern. This modern home is located on a very nice quiet street. The house was very clean and inviting. The interior of the house is larger in person than the pictures show. The grounds, both front and back, are gorgeous. We spent most of our time in the pool or on the lovely patio. Some floats were provided, but we brought ours as well. Although we didn't cook, the kitchen is fully stocked with all that you would need. A taxi ride to our favorite restaurant "The Matchbox", on the strip, was only $10. We had a very relaxing stay and would definitely come back in the future. I mostly communicated with David by email and he was very quick in his responses, If you are considering renting in the desert, this is a great place!
