This historic mid century home was designed by William Krisel for the Alexander Company and is located in the heart of the lush Racquet Club Estates in Palm Springs. A full restoration of the property was completed in March 2011, returning the home to its original splendor while incorporating modern touches including a brand new chef's kitchen with panel ready appliances and bar and new bathrooms with Ann Sacks tile, modern vanities and fixtures.
In the living room, you will find a spectacular 10' foot long vintage sofa by designer Adrian Pearsall, two Barcelona chairs, a 42" Sony HD Television.
The master bedroom has a private bathroom, King size bed, views of the pool and its own television. Two additional private bedrooms, one with two twin beds and one with a queen size bed will sleep six people. There is also a den/4th bedroom with queen size Murphy bed. (this room can also be opened up and used as an office).
The best room in the house may well be the backyard. The 42' foot lap pool was modeled on famed Case Study House #21 in Hollywood. It has a tanning shelf, period tile and a tranquil water feature. The new patio has a brand new grill and room to seat eight comfortably for dinner. A raised shelf is home to four chaise lounges to soak up the California sun and a raised fire pit is nestled in the back corner of the property. The back yard faces west towards stunning snow capped mountain views by day and breathtaking sunsets at dusk. This property is located only 2.8 miles from downtown!
This destination property was profiled in the Summer 2012 issue of Seattle Met Bride & Groom Magazine and the Winter 2012 issue of Atomic Ranch Magazine. Please note: THE ENTIRE PROPERTY IS NON SMOKING INCLUDING ALL OUTDOOR AREAS.

The home was perfect! So clean and well maintained - the furnishings and decor were spot on for mid-century experience! And the pool - the POOL! One of the most wonderful pools we've ever had the pleasure to swim in! Than you for the opportunity to stay at this Modern Dream!
Beautiful Home - A Few Issues
We stayed in this beautiful home recently on a family getaway and I must say, I was very impressed with how spacious yet comfortable it was! We had a very relaxing time and everyone absolutely LOVED the pool! We did have a few issues in the beginning where the trash wasn't taken out from the previous tenant, which caused a massive amount of flies all over the patio area, making it difficult to sit outside. Even after the issue was taken care of, the flies just did not stop! We took coffee grounds (great tip!) and burned them to get rid of some of the flies, but it was a problem throughout the stay. Inside the home was VERY clean, the beds were super comfy and we all had a wonderful time. I would say though that this "noise ordinance" rule is a little bit ridiculous. I was told about staying quiet, ensuring that no one complains...about a million times, both in the contracts as well as by the concierge guy who came to meet us. It was a bit much because even though I know my family is respectful enough not to party while people are sleeping, I still was a tyrant the entire trip, not wanting to cause any issues. I kept yelling "SHH" so much, even when my family wasn't being loud at all! Tell me one time, but don't make it seem like I'm going to be kicked out at every turn for any slight infraction! I will use VRBO again and I was happy enough for ACME to stay here again. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home.
The home is clean and comfortable while remaining stylish and decadent. I traveled with my spouse and three small children and we could not have been more happy. The house was completely comfortable for family life, providing plenty of space, an incredible pool and completely stocked kitchen for buying groceries and making our own meals. And although the house was wonderful for children - it still felt stylish and luxurious enough for my spouse and I. I would highly recommend this rental and plan on coming back with my family and or with just my spouse many times.
Repeat Visitor...and I can't wait to go back!
I have used VRBO for several house rentals over the years...this is the first house that I have been back to several times....it is truly an amazing, relaxing oasis...the pool and outdoor area can not be beat! It has a fantastic location and I never get tired of looking at the mountains from the fire pit or the sun deck. The beds are crazy comfortable, the flex room is a great use of space and converts comfortably and easily to a guest room...it can be private or accessed from other areas of the house. (and yep, I can attest to that bed being comfortable too). The property is very clean, well maintained and has every essential cooking tool you could need. When I need a sunny getaway in Palm Springs, this is my go to place every time!
Great House & Pool - Highly Recommended
My daughter and I spent a week here and the house exceeded our expectations. It actually looks better in person than it does in the photos. My six year-old was barely out of the pool the whole week. Spotless house, great mid century design, good experience with management company, very close to downtown and the pool is pretty stunning. Already making plans to stay here again.
Great House, Horrible Neighbors
The house is wonderful. The pool is fantastic. The problem is the neighbors. There were six of us in the house and, as it was warm at night, we wanted to stay outside and chat, swim, and use the hot tub. Unfortunately, that was not possible. The first noise complaint we were sitting outside laughing and talking. The second time we were in the hot tub with lowered voices. The third time there were two people outside LITERALLY WHISPERING. Really super stressful to get aggressive phone calls about how the police were going to kick us out when we were just trying to sit outside on a warm night. So, so, so disappointing.
Located in the Racquet Club Estates area of Palm Springs. This neighborhood was one of the first Palm Springs mid-century modern areas and the former playground of the infamous Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.
