New Listing as of May 4, 2017

Surf’s Up! Your next Palm Springs getaway is a Polynesian delight at the home we're calling "PS DiveIn"! Located in the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood, this fully updated Alexander Company built home is one of the few original four bedroom homes designed by renowned architect William Krisel in 1959. A model of Mid-Century design and the Tiki craze, PS DiveIn not only offers a twist with its stylish interior, as recently featured as the Spring 2017 cover home for Atomic Ranch magazine, but also provides a unique cinematic experience, allowing you to view your favorite movies at night poolside with a outdoor movie projection and wireless headphones.

PS DiveIn’s bedroom layout is ideal for families and multiple couples vacationing together with 2 en-suite master bedrooms, both with rear yard/poolside access and two guest bedrooms. Both Master bedrooms feature King beds, attached bathrooms, and smart TVs. The two guest bedrooms also feature smart TVs with one guest king bed and one guest queen bed. Both guest bedrooms share the hall bathroom. The fourth bedroom (or 2nd Master Suite) is separated from the other bedrooms by the homes’ delightful living space which offers privacy and entrance off the covered carport that has a garage door. Both master suites offer sliding doors and pool/patio access.

The inside living space offers a compact but efficient island kitchen with breakfast bar seating and updated appliances. Dining and entertaining flows easily in the home’s open floor plan, from kitchen to casual dining (for up to 8) to the living room which offers views poolside with walls of glass and sliders. Attention to detail during remodeling really shows off with the rock clad living room fireplace that matched the home’s exterior rock finishes. A massive credenza in the living room offers storage for entertaining supplies and is a duplicate of the credenza featured in Don Draper’s office in Mad Men. The interior space throughout the home highlights its Mid-Century origins with angled wood plank ceilings, polished porcelain tile floors, grasscloth wallpaper, Orange Witco wall art and a mix of Tiki touches and Brutalist furniture.

Outdoors, PS DiveIn offers great poolside living and entertaining with unobstructed mountain views, two gas fire pit features, a hammock for shady naps, outdoor propane BBQ grill, al fresco dining for up to 8 and multiple seating areas around the large saltwater pool and in-ground spa. Don’t forget that outdoor theater that allows you to enjoy your favorite movies creatively projected onto the back wall of our neighboring fire station; wireless headphones keep the drama and music discreetly to yourselves without disturbing the neighbors!

This beautiful vacation rental is a short drive to downtown Palm Springs, with its many bars, shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Other Palm Springs attractions are similarly a short drive away, from area casinos and gambling, to world renowned spa resorts, tennis, golfing, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.

Racquet Club Estates is a premier neighborhood of Palm Springs. The neighborhood is rich with architecture and history. It should be noted the city has sound ordinances that are strictly enforced. The owner(s) like to stress this home is ideal for a dream vacation and relaxation but is by no means a “party-central” home. Each guest is expected to be as good a neighbor as the owner(s) themselves. Special events like weddings are NOT allowed.

Pleasant and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen was complete and workable. Great sound system and comfortable beds. Best part was the beautiful back yard and pool.

Property managers were very responsive and helpful!

Incredible outdoor space!

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent 5 days at this house and it was a wonderful stay! We were thrilled with the outdoor space - the pool and spa were perfect, the grassy area was nice and flat and the outdoor movie projector was a hit!

The only minor downside to staying there was the location. On the corner of a fairly busy street and near a fire hall did not create the most peaceful setting.

The house was well appointed and clean. Had all the kitchen tools you would need. The layout of the house was smaller than expected but we spent most of our time outside. Great all around.

Care-free relaxed living

  • 4 of 5

Our family throughly enjoyed our week's stay. We never had to contact the agent - a first in my book - about anything. The pool and yard were even larger and better than we expected. Everything functioned as it should...another first at a rental for us. The linens were spectacular and the entire space was eat-on-the-floor condition.

A joyful and restful time had by all!

Fun, Relaxing and Chic!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time. It was very well appointed; great design and style. The home was clean, well-stocked and ready for us! The property manager met us and showed us how to work the projector and play music. Since there's no music allowed outside, the head phones made it particularly fun so we could listen to stuff outside. The movie projector was a blast. We only used it one night but how fun for the group.

We had 7 people in the house and never felt crowded. Kitchen was efficient, beds were comfortable. Had a plumbing issue but management was over within minutes and had a plumber on site in about an hour. Fast and got us going again...

Couldn't ask for more and the group thinks we've found our go-to place for Palm Springs!

Wanna Relax? This is Your Place!

  • 5 of 5

Oh wow - I am going day and night and work and home are sometimes out of balance. Working full time at both work and home is exhausting and not always able to travel away. This past weekend I felt as though I had traveled to Mexico or some Tropical Island where I was at a Resort. This home is an OASIS and the service is impecccable; World Class Service. Scott the Prop Manager is so gracious and attentive to assure that the stay is going to be the best it can be by offering a list of top places to dine. WOW - what can you say. As much as you would love to stay just in the Oasis...because the flurry of rooms to choose from are just crazy. Beautifully decorated and so warm and cozy you don't want to leave. And the pool - You would not want more. The house was easy to find just off the 111 Hwy and minutes from activity if you choose. Would I stay here again? Without a doubt. We have found our Vacation Travel Oasis in our own backyard.

Thank you.

A spectacular mid-mod movie fun experience!

  • 5 of 5

Scott and his team were awesome! Great check-in and check-out process and everything in-between with a quick response to any need! The house is set up like a 5-star hotel complete with all the comforts of home. Although we spent most of the time outside by the salt-water pool and the tropical oasis backyard, being inside feels like your outside with floor to ceiling windows everywhere looking out at the beautiful yard. Great views of the mountains too which is why we like Palm Springs. We watched Blue Hawaii on the outdoor movie screen which was apropos to the style and decor of the house. Great house, great rental team, great experience. We'll be back!
