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.

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.

Quiet and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and spacious condo. Well-equipped with everything you need in this home-away-from-home studio. The bed was comfy, the towels thick and absorbent, and the kitchen well-stocked. I'd stay here again, for sure!

Seabeck, WA

Great location and perfect for a couple

  • 5 of 5

So easy to get to HWY 111 - Palm Canyon Drive, which has all of the traditional shopping and restaurants. The Palm Springs Aerial Tram is also so close and this was the highlight of our trip. Amazing views, hiking and lunch at the top. We also went hiking at the Indian Canyon area - looks like an oasis. The bed was comfortable and we loved having a kitchen and BBQ for meals. Nice neighborhood that I utilized for my runs in the morning.

Perfect place to relax and use as your home base!

  • 4 of 5

Such a great location on lovely grounds, with easy driving access to all you need.

So close to necessary services and points of interest, but tucked back off the main streets to provide some wonderful seclusion. Great area for walking either on or off the complex.

Everything one could need has been provided in the condo, and Herta is very responsive to any questions. Truly a lovely place, and lovely owners.
