Property description

Greetings from Palm Springs, CA!

Welcome to the Palm Springs Modern Classic. This 1957 historic and architecturally significant home was meticulously renovated and offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and sleeps up to 6 guests for true hospitality. Spread out and make yourself comfortable in 1,600 square feet of classic living space, an ideal accommodation choice for a family or group of close friends looking for the ultimate Palm Springs experience. This quality home is tastefully furnished and a perfect choice for fans of mid century modern design.

In the words of a loyal guest:
"I've rented quite a few houses over the years in Palm Springs - and every one has some disappointment, but not this one. It's the perfect size in the perfect neighborhood. And, it's beautiful! 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

This home sits on a large corner lot in the peaceful and quiet (and less-windy) neighborhood of Twin Palms, and offers all the elements of mid century modern living - and 21st century amenities, inside and out. The beds are super-comfortable and linens are plush and cozy. The open concept kitchen, dining and living room overlook the fabulous pool deck, which is back-dropped by the 10,000 foot San Jacinto Mountain range - seeming so close you can touch it. The great-room offers abundant light and the indoor/outdoor living environment Palm Springs is known for. The kitchen is well stocked with all the modern amenities needed for today's cooks - and includes Jenn-Air Premier appliances. There is indoor dining for 9, and a 6-top for outdoor dining. The living room includes kick-your-feet-up comfort furnishings, massive stone fireplace, 55" flat-screen HDTV, and complimentary high-speed internet, WiFi and Netflix. Other amenities include:

* Non-smoking and pet-free property
* Pool-side seating and lounging for six+
* Pool rafts and toys for guests use
* Outdoor Dining and Barbecue Grill

Your home away from home lends itself to a relaxing and fun getaway in the Palm Springs area. Take advantage of the variety of nearby coffee shops and popular restaurants, some within walking distance of the home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hello, My family enjoys 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 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 beautiful Sunset and Garden Beach Cottages in San Diego. Enjoy~ Rodney Home Owner

Why the Owner Chose Palm Springs, CA, USA:
Suddenly, it's 1957! This Twin Palms vacation 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~

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This Palm Springs Modern Classic was designated historic in January, 2013 (HSPB 85). We are proud preservationist and happy to open the home for others to enjoy. We are honored to serve as stewards to one of the many "starchitects" found in the Twin Palms neighborhood. A virtual toast - to partnerships in preservation!
