About the property

Studio, + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

This unique studio is located in the historic Racquet Club Garden Villas which was designed by the famed mid-century architect, William F. Cody. This is the place where the most famous of the film stars and celebrities gathered while in Palm Springs. This lovely 500 square foot condo was completely re- done from floor to ceiling with all new appliances and furnishing in August of 2012. It is in a gated community of 37 units and is located just minutes from the airport and downtown Palm Springs with it excellent restaurants and trendy shops.

It can sleep maximum of two persons. In the large living room there is a queen size Murphy bed that folds into the wall when not in use and in addition there is a comfortable new L shaped Sofa that makes into a double bed. All linens are provided.

This unit is unique in that it has a built in wood burning fireplace.

Experience the unique art of famed Adam Stone.

The post and beam architecture with the floor to ceiling glass walls are William F. Cody signature look which breaks the distinction between indoors and outdoors and makes the unit appear much larger.

The grounds designed by Phil Shipley are beautiful with trees everywhere, gardens and a soothing a wandering stream. The view of the San Jacinto Mountains is spectacular and the extra-large swimming pool and spa are very special.

It has a new full size stainless steel kitchen, complete with dishes, utensils, pots & pans, bowls, icemaker and an outdoor BBQ for your cooking and meal preparation convenience. There is also a private washer and dryer for your convenience.

Very special location

  • 5 of 5

The studio was spacious and well-equipped and Herte attended to any needs for replacement or repair. The pool was absolutely wonderful. An oasis in terms of landscaping.

A lovely stay with a wonderful hostess

  • 5 of 5

Such a great complex and stunning pool! This was close to downtown yet removed from the trappings of a busy tourist-filled hotel. A taste of old Palm springs!! And Herta was sweet and helpful. She even took the time to send a package of items I'd accidentally left behind. It was a wonderful stay and we will return. Thank you!!

Perfect location, perfect place to call home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this perfect city oasis. The location is wonderful, the amenities are exactly what you want while in Palm Springs (pool, palm trees, patio) and the size was perfect. Though we didn't meet our host, their neighbour who helped us arrive and gave us (fantastic!) restaurant recommendations was extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

The perfect size for two people for a few days of relaxing in the sunshine.

Would totally recommend and would love to go back one day. Thank you for a great stay!!

Spacious studio

  • 5 of 5

The studio is large enough for two or more. The murphy bed is very comfortable. The outdoor space has a small table for four but not much private outdoor space. However, less than a minute walk is one of the best pools in Palm Springs. If any problems arise, the owners will correct it promptly.

a great studio unit owned by great people

  • 5 of 5

An excellent VRBO for my wife and I, had all the amenities with a great location for any activity. The unit was extremely clean and provided us with everything for cooking, relaxing, swimming, outdoor cooking, and a great alternative to a hotel. We wish we could have stayed longer, but certainly would return to this unit in Palm Springs. Very close to hiking, biking, shopping, restaurants, and any tourist attraction. The owners are great with a warm welcome and always available for questions or issues. Don't pass this up.

About Wayne Headrick

My wife and I who have been married for 44 years live in Palm Springs. Until we retired five years ago, we owned a fine art printing studio and a 10,000 sq. ft. art gallery in Palos Verdes, California. As you can see from the photos the unit is extensively decorated with the works of several well know artists. Before starting the printing studio and the art gallery, we lived in Europe and India for many years. I am an American and my wife is German born. She speaks German, English and French.

We manage the units ourselves and look forward to meeting and greeting you.

Wayne Headrick purchased this studio in 2012

Why Wayne Headrick chose Palm Springs

For many years we lived at the beach and bought a unit in the Garden Villas to come on the weekends when the weather was not so nice on the coast. We grew to love the desert and retired here five years ago.

What makes this studio unique

In our opinion the Garden Villas of the Racquet Club is the most unique and beautiful place in all of the desert. In the Garden Villas there are only 37 units. It is a gated community and this historical place has magnificent grounds, an extra large pool with a fountain and a spa.


The Unit is located in the historic Garden Villas of the Racquet Club. There are 37 units in the complex which is very spacious and covered in beautiful trees, gardens, pools, streams and a very large and unique swimming pool with a fountain.
