Property description

Betty’s is a newly renovated house in the historic Movie Colony East neighborhood, centrally located with easy access to all that the Coachella Valley has to offer. Walking distance to downtown Palm Springs shopping and restaurants, the Casino, and the Convention Center, and an easy five-minute walk to Ruth Hardy Park for tennis, volleyball or basketball. The house is available for rental during the holidays, the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, the Palm Springs Film Festival, The Dinah Shore Weekend and the Palm Springs’ Pride Festival in October.

The interior of the house has been completely updated in 2013 and has all the contemporary comforts. The architect-designed state of the art kitchen features stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, a gas cooktop, vaulted ceilings and a layout that flows from the kitchen to the family room area with its 60-inch wall-mounted flat-screen TV. There are two baths and two bedrooms, both with king-size beds. The house includes an expanded cable package, free long distance telephone in North America and WiFi.

The open concept living room and dining room have been beautifully furnished, capturing the Palm Springs mid-century modern feel. The spacious master suite has a king size bed, a 40-inch flat screen TV, French doors that lead directly to the pool, and a large en suite bathroom. The walk-in shower has multiple showerheads to help create a spa experience. The guest bedroom has a large closet, cable TV and sliding glass doors to the patio and pool area with an adjacent, cheerful modern guest bathroom.

The outdoor living space has a comfortably furnished patio, with an outdoor living room, an outdoor dining room and barbecue and chaises by the new pebble tech pool and spa. There are spectacular mountain views (completely free of wires!) from the backyard.

Manager info

About: Although we live in Canada, we’ve been coming to Palm Springs since the early 1980s. Clearly we love it here, and we love how vibrant the city’s become in the last decade or so. Couple that with everything else the desert has to offer – amazing hikes, Joshua Tree National Park, great restaurants and shopping – and it’s understandable why we’ve made Palm Springs our second home.

Why Ruth Hardy Park, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
Why is the house called “Betty’s”? It was originally built in the 1940s by a cocktail waitress – and former bathing-suit model – named Betty who worked at the popular downtown nightclub, Chi Chi’s, frequented by Frank Sinatra and other stars. Neighbors report that Frank loved Betty’s martinis and occasionally stopped by the house to have her whip up a batch. He also asked her to pick him up from time-to-time at the old Palm Springs train station. As only the third owners of the property we wanted to honor the history of the house by calling it after its first owner. On the counter in the kitchen there is a picture of Betty standing outside the house in the late1940s when the place was little more than a cottage and the street was still unpaved! There are also photos of the house prior to the recent renovations.
