About the property

4 BR, 3 BA, sleeps 8

Originally built in 1956, this quiet and visually uncomplicated home has been totally reinvented with an expanded open floor plan and new finishes throughout. Located in Central Palm Springs within close proximity to downtown shopping and restaurants.

Expansive San Jacinto Mountain views can be enjoyed directly from floor-to-ceiling living room windows as well as from the pool area where you can watch the sun set behind them. With almost 2,200sf, the main living area gives you plenty of room to spread out and relax. Pristine white porcelain and glass polished floors offer a stark contrast to the desert landscape surrounding the house. The kitchen is large with island seating that opens directly to a salt water pool and spa.

Enjoy sun longer in the day around the pool as the property is situated away from the base of the mountain. Poolside dining and various lounge seating areas expand living space year round. Whether you're getting away to the desert to write, catch up on your reading, meditate or enjoy the company of close friends, this is the ultimate desert oasis.

This property is absolutely gorgeous. The exquisite photos above only begin to do the house justice. The pool area feels private and secluded with the tall white walls that surround the backyard. With comfortable chairs in both the shade and sun, and a pool at the perfect temperature, there was something in the backyard for everyone. Each of the bedrooms has direct access to a bathroom, with two of the rooms sharing one of the bathrooms. Each room and bathroom is tidy, clean and modern. Two bedrooms have direct access to the backyard, with big sliding doors and beautiful morning sunlight. The house feels modern with timeless mid-century touches. The white living room and kitchen are bright, clean and airy. The house is very close to many restaurants, grocery stores, juice places, coffee shops and shops - just a quick drive or taxi away.

Mike is delightful and makes the rental process simple, flexible and enjoyable. I absolutely hope to return to this property soon.

Palm Springs Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed at a few vacation homes in Palm Springs and this one was by far my favorite experience. The inside was spacious, clean and nicely furnished. We spent most of our time out in the Sun. The pool and hot tub were perfect. Entirely private and peaceful. Plenty of seating too, for laying out. We picked up a few groceries for the grill, but felt no other need to leave.

All in all, we’ll be visiting again, highly recommend to anyone who’s interested!

I've stayed here multiple time and I just can't get enough! Its my go-to house when we're heading to Palm Springs! Its bright, open and airy. The house is beautifully decorated and has such a lush, classy feel. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so there is plenty of space for guests. Each room has a queen bed, an attached bathroom and a private walk off patio so its perfect for couples. The pool always looks like an oasis with the inviting cool blue tiles and the hot tub turns on with just the click of a button. There are lounging chairs everywhere not to mention the high walls for privacy ;) The patio is huge with a grill plus the kitchen doors open up completely to the back area so there is such a nice flow for entertaining. And if you like entertaining the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you can think of to prep those cocktails and cook and serve those dishes. If you can actually get up the nerve to leave this paradise for a few hours the house is close to downtown and all the shopping and restaurants. When the sun sets there is a glass stone gas fire pit in the back that is so painless, even after a few margaritas. If you're looking for a place to lay in sun and feel like there is nothing else to do but relax, I HIGHLY recommend coming here.

Perfect getaway from the city!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolute PERFECT getaway from the city! I stayed here a couple years ago with friends and came back Sept. 2014. The house is stocked with everything you need to relax and soak in the sun.

Bedrooms were super comfy - LOVED that the master bedroom opened up to the pool. I loved waking up with a cup of coffee and strolling into the back in my PJs. I also love that each room has unique features - the Jack & Jill bathroom has an incredible shower -- smooth bath rocks embedded into the floor.

The kitchen and BBQ were also perfect for making big meals for all of our friends. We grilled every day we were there.

The location is also perfect - it was a quick Uber ride downtown and to the casino.

I recommend this house to all of my LA friends who are looking for a great weekend of R&R. Will for sure be coming back!!!

I want to be buried here

  • 5 of 5

Seriously. This home is the most beautiful thing I have ever laid eyes on. Quintessential mid-century modern style with modern updates. The pool was beautiful and clean and the whole house was spotless and welcoming. If you want to feel like a celebrity for a week, rent this house. You won't be disappointed. I am trying to put together another visit next year as a matter of fact. Can't wait to go back.
