Property description

Welcome to 1961! This home was designed by the noted Palm Springs architect Hugh M. Kaptur and built by Ranch Construction Company as one of only 200 homes in the area. Strong post and beam construction atop concrete block walls give this house a cave like feeling of comfort with 21st Century amenities.

Help us homeowners protest the new fees that you as guests pay when you rent. You can easily find us on any search engine by looking for Nici's Pool House Palm Springs. You will not be charged the new fees and will save money by dealing with us directly.

Nici's Pool House was completely updated in 2011 with new floors, all new paint and decor and modern desert landscaping. An over sized resort style pool perfectly compliments this hip, cool home.

Live in the backyard; watch the sun set behind the mountains from the provided pool floats; enjoy refreshing chilled drinks; listen to music (outdoor stereo system) or read a book under the covered patio. Barbecue on the stainless steel grill or just relax on a lounge.

The living/great room features a large sectional sofa, an HD television with Roku and a Wii as well as a dedicated Netflix account for unlimited movie viewing.
The Master Bedroom has a California King bed, a couch and direct access to the patio and pool and an en-suite bathroom with tub and rain shower.
The other two bedrooms have Queen beds and are across the hall from the second bathroom.

All three bedrooms have flat screen televisions, Roku, ceiling fans, iPod docking stations, classic clock radios and extra linens.

Hugh M. Kaptur, the architect of this home, designed many homes in Palm Springs including one for Hollywood star William Holden. Step back into the time of the Rat Pack and Mad Men and enjoy living in the sixties with today's comforts.

NICI'S POOL HOUSE is convenient to everything yet secluded in a quiet residential street.

RESERVE, RELAX and ENJOY.

We operate a legal rental under Palm Springs City Permit: #4808

Palm Springs is a great place to look for vintage clothing and furniture in the many shops along Palm Canyon. If you are interested in newer things, the Cabazon Outlet stores are twenty minutes away. Hiking in Indian Canyon or at the top of the tram is a great past time and just across the highway is White Water Canyon.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We've been coming to Palm Springs since 1997 and started renting homes here. We discovered the secret to what makes a home fun to stay in or just blah. Spending holidays here in the warm climate made us decide that we had to have a place of our own. We love coming to this house with our family and think you will like our house too. We've taken all of the things we've learned over years of renting and applied them here to make the house fun and relaxing. We think we've succeeded. Bert & Berlynn

Why the Owner Chose Racquet Club South, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
Palm Springs has one of the best climates in the world for outdoor living. We are lovers of everything mid-century and went looking for a 1960's era post and beam home. We wanted an amazing pool with large, private yard and a spacious indoor/outdoor home. We searched for a quiet street that was close to stores, restaurants, the airport and major highways. You'll agree that we found it! We're literally minutes from restaurants, the airport, the highway and downtown. We know that you'll enjoy Nici's Pool House and will come back again and again.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the pool, laying on the chaise lounges in the backyard, or just reading a book in our desert garden. Our dogs enjoy the walled yard and can roam freely without worry. We enjoy just hanging out at the kitchen bar and finding that everywhere we want to go is nearby. The beautiful Riviera resort is a great place to go for dinner, and the folks at Tinto always make us feel like we're regulars.
