About the Property

Fabulous villa, 3 Bedrooms, private pool, spa, views, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Elrod Villa, located at the historic Palm Springs Racquet Club, was the playground to Hollywood’s most glamorous celebrities. Originally designed for Sigmund E. Edelstone (wealthy industrialist, philanthropist and art collector) by Hal Broderick of Arthur Elrod and Associates, this masterpiece of mid-century design has been toured by The Smithsonian Institute, The L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art and featured in Architectural Digest (September/October 1975). Elrod Villa is a licensed Palm Springs vacation rental (City of Palm Springs TOT Permit "6386").

The living and dining rooms set the stage for elegant entertaining with soaring ceilings, extensive use of indirect lighting, fireplace, bar, and Italian travertine flooring that extend to the outdoors. Walls of glass overlook the terrace with a luxurious tiled pool, oversized spa and dramatic panoramic views of the San Jacinto mountains. And for serious lap swimmers, our complex's large community pool is just steps away.

Space-age bachelor pad details abound with immense steel doors, a mirrored powder room, wet bar, retro-futuristic lighting control panels (including one hidden beside the master bed) and a thumping whole-house audio system cleverly concealed in gorgeous, custom hardwood cabinets. Today, we continue to enhance the villa's midcentury "home of the future" vibe with cool features including color-changing LED lighting, whole house streaming audio (from our device or yours) and tablet-based control of the pool, spa and fountain.

At Elrod Villa, we offer our you a luxury vacation rental experience with hosted check-in, a fantastic local property manager, a private pool and spa, comfy beds, robes, a well-appointed kitchen, beautifully-maintained grounds, and much more! Check out our 5-star reviews to learn more about what makes a stay at Elrod Villa special!

The residence offers 2,400 square feet of living space, including two bedrooms and a spacious media room (or third bedroom with pullout sofa). The Elrod Villa can sleep up to 6. Conveniently located within minutes of downtown restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

Suitability: Inside, Elrod Villa is a non-smoking property, but smoking is allowed outside in the private pool/garden area. As a historic midcentury modern home, Elrod Villa is not suitable for pets (please note: service animals, which are of course not pets, are allowed). Our property has features (such as hard floors, sharp edged features of the pool and artworks, etc.) which may make it unsafe or uncomfortable for children—as a result, minors under the age of 16 are not allowed without prior approval.

Please inquire for quotes on weekly (7-night) and monthly (28-days or more) stays! We typically offer discounts for such stays which the VRBO/HomeAway quote tool cannot accurately present.

We look forward to welcoming you to Palm Springs!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: My wife Jill and I share a passion for midcentury modernism, entertaining and all things retro-fabulous. She's spent her career in luxury hospitality, ensuring the delight of some of the world's most discriminating guests. I'm an entrepreneur, investor, recording artist and bon vivant (not necessarily in that order). We look forward to sharing our glam-tastic vacation home with you!

Why the Owner Chose Palm Springs, CA, USA:
We fell in love with Palm Springs on our honeymoon and have searched for years for the ideal place to call our home away from home. The "Elrod Villa" is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing properties we've ever seen here in Palm Springs. From its architectural and design significance, to its unique period details, to its stunning mountain views, it was (once again) love at first sight. The property's previous owners have all shared our dedication to preserving the unique charm of this gorgeous place, while updating it with modern amenities that we expect from a vacation home.
