The design and finishes of the house are flawless - you'll want a martini when you walk in the door! And it's comfortable - amazing beds, fantastic pool and kitchen."

Alan B. | Seattle, WA

About Rodney

Hello,

My family absolutely adores Palm Springs and all that it has to offer. During a visit back in 2009, we rented a Mid Century Modern home for the first time - and that's when our affection for all-things "modernism" began. We admire the simplicity: open carports, clerestory windows, exposed concrete block, breezeways, gable and butterfly roof-lines, and large in-ground pools with spectacular mountain views.

Come for a visit and celebrate simple, clean and fun architectural design as a destination, and take-in the abundant sunshine, clear blue skies, low humidity, and warm temperatures Palm Springs is known for.

Whether you enjoy the ease and independence of a Vacation Rental where you simply pick your spot and push a button, or you prefer a Vacation Rental where you can interact with the owner in one-on-one discussions before booking - through post departure, you deserve the very best experience.

I appreciate and offer good, old fashioned customer service - and aim to delight my guests. Lost your way in unfamiliar surroundings? Call me. Unsure about local romantic or family-friendly restaurants? Text me. Forgot your anniversary and need something special right away? Email me, I’m here to help.

Interested in staying with us? Contact us for information about our Historic Beauty in Palm Springs - or our charming Beach Cottages in the Seaside Village of Ocean Beach in San Diego.

Enjoy ~

Rodney purchased this house in 2012

Why Rodney chose Twin Palms

Suddenly, it's 1957!

This Twin Palms home has carefully recreated the look and feel of its original (William Krisel) design. Originally completed in 1957 by the Alexander Construction Company, this home is known as the "Gable."

Twin Palms is the first mid-century modern neighborhood built by George Alexander's company. Alexander and Architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel are credited with redefining the architectural landscape of Palm Springs residential real estate. Their success initiated the City's first major housing boom in the 50's and forever changed its architectural landscape.

The home renovation team worked closely with Mr. Krisel during the remodel and restoration of this exciting mid century modern home. The team consulted his archives, now at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, attempting to return the home to the look and feel that it had when first completed. The floor plan, a masterpiece of space planning, continues to work beautifully for today's lifestyle.

Enjoy~

What makes this house unique

This Palm Springs Modern Classic was designated historic in January, 2013 (HSPB 85).

We are proud preservationist. We are honored to serve as stewards to one of the many "starchitects" found in the Twin Palms neighborhood - and happy to open the home for others to enjoy.

A virtual toast - to partnerships in preservation! Cheers!

Relaxing vacation and great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for the authentic Palm Springs experience and found it here. The home was immaculate with furniture that really suited the style of house and the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and we even did a full Thanksgiving Dinner. The washer/dryer was a bonus and was located in such a way as to not heat up the house.

The backyard and pool were well laid out with a beautiful view and we also had a great time relaxing around the fire pit with friends and family in the evening.

Even though we were fortunate to have record breaking temps the week we were there, we never had to use the AC as the nights cooled off nicely.

We were even able to enjoy the ambience of the indoor fireplace once or twice.

Rodney was a pleasure to work with and even after we changed our minds about heating the pool, he responded within minutes and set the pool heat remotely. Nice feature!!

Thank you for the care and detail of this home. Would love to return in the future.

a mid-century jewel

  • 5 of 5

As a lover of mid-century architecture, this was a real find! I've seen this house published and it''s on the historic register. Besides the great architecture, it was very clean, well maintained and comfortable. Loved it!

Lovely Mother/Daughter weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

Two mothers, two daughters, two days of relaxing around the pool and enjoying time together. The house is immaculate and the care with which guests are treated is fantastic. You are greeted and checked-in by David, a concierge manager, who feels like your new best friend you can ask anything of .... the beds are first rate, the kitchen is fully stocked, there are plenty of pool towels, chairs, tables, floaties and even the soap in the shower is thoughtfully wrapped and lovely. Rodney has made his home the place you want to return to because at the end of a long day of travel, you open the door and you know it was worth the trip. Everything is what you hoped for and every detail in this beautiful mid-century modern house has been carefully planned.

Fantastic and historic Palm Sprinngs Location

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are perfectly located in Palm Springs. There's access to nearby bars, restaurants, and the surrounding mid-century modern homes are stunning. The home itself is historic and a classic example of the original architecture that makes the city so special. A wonderful place to stay for the real Palm Springs experience.

Great property, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four, and had a great time at Rodney's vacation rental. The house was clean, well stocked and the pool was amazing (there were pool floaties!). Very smooth check in and check out process. Rodney was extremely available and would get back to us when we had any questions almost immediately. Thanks Rodney for having us!
