Overview

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!

Why Keith Crosley chose Deserts

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.

Gorgeous place!

  • 5 of 5

We lived our stay at the Elrod Villa. The place is gorgeous, pool is amazing, and the sound system really is THAT good.

The owner, Keith, was so accomodating.

The place was clean and in great condition.

We absolutely recommend it to all couples.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Yehuda, for your kind comments and for staying with us at Elrod Villa Palm Springs! We're so glad you enjoyed the stereo! (That's one of my favorite features of the home... and one that "sold" me on it when we first discovered Elrod Villa.) We hope that you'll stay with us again on future visits to Palm Springs. Best regards, Keith at Elrod Villa

Perfect escape - luxury seclusion, an oasis of serenity

  • 5 of 5

First off, let me say the spectacular pictures can't even do this wonderful home justice - it was incredible! Coming from what is sometimes thought to be near the Arctic Circle (Minnesota), Palm Springs was just what the doctor ordered. Plenty to see and do nearby, but Elrod Villa was the star of the vacation - nice to get out for the day, but even nicer to get back, enjoy the pool and spa, the artwork, make a meal in the fully decked out kitchen and just relax under the stars. Keith and Reed were both great to get along with, very quick and thorough on all inquiries and requests. Our only regret was our schedule did not allow us to stay longer. We have recommended this place to everyone we know!

Just Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This house is amazing! Very clean, high ceilings, tasteful decor, a great sound system, and if you like lighting, this place has it all. You are able to change lighting throughout the house to fit any mood you wish. Plenty of pantry items, beautiful bathrooms and spa robes. The outdoors is also very nice, but the reason for the 4 stars is because the pool is not for swimming, only wading. It looks way larger in the photo. Luckily, there is a good size community pool and spa just steps away if you want to swim. I loved Reed, he is wonderful and available if you need him. I also want to thank Keith for letting us have a late check out.

Owner's Response: Crystal, I'm so glad you and your group had a great time at Elrod Villa! Thanks for the kind comments on Reed (he is truly amazing and makes the whole thing possible) and I'm so glad you enjoyed our crazy lights and sound system! I'm sorry that the size and depth of the pool didn't match up to your expectations, but glad that you mentioned and enjoyed the huge community pool just steps away! You guys were great and we look forward to welcoming you back to Elrod Villa on future getaways to the desert. I'm so glad you got to take advantage of late checkout. Do visit us again. Best regards, Keith

Unbelievable Home!!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a much needed vacation at the Elrod Villa and I can't say enough about this property! Keith, the owner, was so helpful before and during my stay. Keith (and Reed the property manager) was always available to answer my questions, so my vacation went very smoothly. Now, about the home...Upon arrival, I was very surprised to find that it was even better than the photos! This place is a mid-century modern dream and probably the coolest place I have ever stayed. All of the amenities were present; I could not have asked for anything else and the location is convenient to everything in Palm Springs. I plan on returning later this year and highly recommend this property! 10 stars!!!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to celebrate our 19th anniversary. This place is great, super clean, secluded, and private. We had a blast and will definitely come back again. Reed the property manager was awesome and provided the best of customer service. Keith the owner made it extra special by providing champagne to help celebrate our special occasion. Overall we highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to experience full relaxation, while being close to everything else. It's the perfect getaway! ! Can't wait to go back.
