About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This Palm Springs vacation home with an extra large private pool and panoramic mountain views epitomizes classical Palm Springs leisure living.

Immediately upon entering this Palm Springs Mid Century Modern Alexander-designed home, the view carries you through the large glass-walled living space onto an expansive grassy yard that surrounds an over-sized outdoor heated pool.

The private grounds feature a meticulously landscaped yard, above ground jacuzzi spa, numerous palm trees, and a backdrop of the majestic San Jacinto mountains. The grounds are an unparalleled space to walk, play, and lounge in the bright sun or under a starry night.

At the end of the pool and to the side are raised sun pads where you can relax. There is also an expansive outdoor patio that features a high-end gas barbecue and outdoor dining space which seats up to ten guests.

Inside the house is a fantastic living room with mid century modern furnishings, polished concrete floors, area rugs, and paintings.

The living area also has a 32 inch flat screen television with cable service, a DVD player, MP3 speakers, and fireplace.

The home's kitchen features stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar with stools. The home's indoor dining area comfortably seats six and has a wonderful vista.

The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with stall shower. It also has a queen-sized bed and its own flat-screen TV with cable service. A sliding glass door opens from the master suite to a patio overlooking the pool and adjacent to the spa. Another full bathroom has a blue glass-tiled shower, and services two bedrooms that have a queen-sized bed and two single beds. All three of the bedrooms have built-in closets with plenty of room for storage.

The home includes wireless WiFi as well as free nation-wide calling within the United States and to Canada. A hidden laundry closet, a two car garage, and an expansive driveway also add to convenience and functionality. You will feel as if you were staying in your own private resort!

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a party house. Palm Springs has strict ordinances regarding vacation rentals, including noise and occupancy limits. We STRICTLY ENFORCE these ordinances.

About Owner

We are city dwellers, but love to get away frequently to the desert to unwind and relax poolside with the back drop of the San Jacinto Mountains

Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why Owner chose Palm Springs, Central

This beautiful mid-century Alexander home sits on a third of an acre, which is one of the largest lots in the Sunmor neighborhood. The backyard feels like your own private resort as it's extremely private, has an oversized heated pool and has unparalleled views of the San Jacinto Mountains.

Beautiful backyard and pool

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two 7 year old kids and parents stayed here for a week and were very happy with our stay. The owners and property manager were good to deal with, and the house was comfortable and the location was excellent. The highlight for everyone was the large, warm (we paid extra for heating) pool and georgeous backyard. We hope to come back again some day!

Comfortable, well-appointed home base for our family vacation in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from 12/25 - 1/1 with our two children, ages 10 and 7. This house was just what we were looking for: something clean, quiet and comfortable, but close to everything. Despite being so close to the airport, we found the neighborhood -- and most importantly the backyard - peaceful. The house is nicely decorated and appointed. It has everything you need for cooking at home, which we did every night but one. We used the pool and hot tub almost every day, despite the daily high temps only in the 60s. An unexpected bonus: loved being able to pick lemons from the trees for cocktail time! (There are grapefruit and clementine(?) trees, too, but they weren't ripe).

The owners were very communicative and helpful between the time we booked until we arrived. We needed an early check in (due to an early flight) and they were very understanding and accommodating.

If we ever travel to Palm Springs again, I'm not sure I would even look for another VRBO. We really enjoyed our stay and felt at home. Now that we're home in Chicago and it's cold and gray, I'll close my eyes and think of the beautiful, expansive view of the back yard, pool, palms and mountains we enjoyed while staying at Sunny Escape.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you loved your stay at our home and we look forward to welcoming you back any time, you were delightful guests! BTW the best grapefruit picking season is February through May and our tree provides the sweetest and juiciest grapefruits in the desert!

our favourite retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the house for many years and always look forward to long lazy days soaking up the sun sitting by the beautiful pool. The photos somehow don't do it justice---really is like being in your own private resort. Very quiet, with a stunning view of the mountains. We love to swim and the pool is huge allowing us to get plenty of exercise without leaving the grounds. Plus you can pick fresh grapefruit from the trees on the property! Everything is very well maintained and the house is always spotless when we arrive. The owners are helpful and kind. Can't say enough about how much we enjoy this home and look forward to our next visit.

Vancouver, B.C. Canada


  • 4 of 5

We and our friends (a group of 4 of us) have rented this property for many vacations and we love it. The huge yard and over-sized pool are fantastic and the house is tastefully decorated, well equipped, and very comfortable for a relaxed casual holiday. The location, within a 5 minute drive of downtown Palm Springs, the airport and grocery shopping, was ideal for us, and we enjoyed walking our dog around the neighbourhood looking at the beautifully maintained mid-century homes. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and promptly dealt with any questions or issues that arose during our stay. We look forward to going back!
