This Is My Dream House!
The first time I ever saw a photo of Park Imperial South, I thought to myself, "That is my dream condo!" And after 4 weeks in James' home, I know that my gut response was absolutely right! This place is a jewel. Beautifully designed by architect Barry Berkus in 1960 and in mint condition. The whimsical folded-plate roofline, the walls of glass, the pristine original fixtures, the huge yard, the immaculate pool, the dramatic mountain views, the hummingbirds... Staying here was a Mid-Century Modern dream-come-true for us. The home is beautiful, in a wonderfully central location to all the surrounding suburbs, and James was an attentive, meticulous host. I cannot recommend this place more highly. I only wish I could live here for the rest of my life...
We loved our one-month stay in this very cool Mid-Century Modern 1960s home. We are both architecture fans and truly appreciated the details in this house, from the folded plate roofline, to the large windows, to the great styling of the aqua stove/oven (that functioned quite well). The furniture fit in very appropriately for the home, and the house felt larger than its square footage. The online photos were very accurate as to the reality: the photos looked good and the house was indeed good, and clean. The large living room had a 1960s ambience that lent itself to relaxing on the sofa and listening to Rat Pack music, while the cozy den room was a good spot for watching movies. The two bedrooms were good-sized and comfortable. The bathroom in the master bath was nicely decorated and the shower worked well (we did not use the other shower). The weather was hot so we did not use the patio, but it was well-lit in the evenings and added to the ambiance, and the views of the mountains in the daytime and at sunset were beautiful from the living room. The house was fairly close to downtown Palm Springs (about 7 minutes driving), and there were many grocery stores and restaurants much closer by. There was one covered parking spot designated for the home, which was useful. It was very easy working with James, the owner, as we communicated several times ahead of the stay and he was always very helpful. The area was very quiet: it was off-season summertime, so there were not many people around in the other houses nearby. We look forward to returning soon, and recommend it to others who are looking to absorb the 1960s aura of Palm Springs.
Don't want to leave.
From the time we walked in we fell in love with this place , the design, furniture, the views can't say enough, wish we could rent it for the whole winter. one month isn't enough. Close to everything the perfect location.We'll be back for sure...
Very comfortable, clean and great location. Beautiful pool too.
Very nice, comfortable and lovely complex with a great pool.
Mid century modern classic
We truly loved staying in this classic MCM home...it is so spacious, private and perfect for entertaining! I loved the kitchen with the original stove and cabinets. Kitchen was also well equipped with everything you need. The pots and pans are a bit old, but functional. The pool was great and there were days when we were the only ones there. The location of this complex is perfect! Within walking distance of shopping centres, the buzz free shuttle bus to downtown and just a few steps away from the sun line bus.
Our only disappointment is that it is not available for next year.
