About the property

4 Bedrooms / 3 Bathrooms / Sleeps 8 / Mountain Views

Live the Palm Springs lifestyle you've always dreamed of!

Located in the unique and historic Mid-Century neighborhood of Racquet Club Estates, this 're-imagined' Alexander was completely renovated and newly constructed in 2013 with a meticulous eye for detail.

Exquisitely decorated and well appointed, we offer all of the comforts of an upscale getaway. An open floor plan, polished concrete floors, high ceilings with exposed wood, and walls of windows overlooking a showpiece pool are a few features that will make your stay here a distinctively Palm Springs experience.

Inside, entertain in the spacious living room. Cook like a five-star chef. Dine in distinction. Or, relax in the family/media room - all while overlooking the magnificence of the pool and private outdoor living spaces.

All bedrooms have pillow-top queen or king beds with down pillows, LCD televisions and great views.

Outside, you can lounge at the pool, grill an amazing meal, or spark up conversation under the stars at the fire pit.

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this stunning home is centrally located, minutes from downtown restaurants, nightlife, and all that Palm Springs has to offer.

About Paul Schumaker

My partner and I are Angelenos who enjoy traveling and weekend desert getaways! We also have the home next door, vrbo listing # 202900.

Paul Schumaker purchased this house in 2012

Why Paul Schumaker chose Palm Springs, North

This home was, originally, an Alexander flat-roof style home typical of Racquet Club Estates. The way that the lot is positioned on the cul-de-sac afforded an enormous canvas, which allowed us to reinvent our 1,225 square foot home into 3,200 while still allowing ample outdoor space.

Our goal was to retain the essence of the original structure while providing more space and modern conveniences.

The use of glass, raw materials and openness drove our architectural choices.

We reclaimed the tongue and grove wood from the original living room and used it for the fences in the front.

In all, once our plans were approved, the renovation process took almost exactly one year and was completed in September 2013.

Our design choices juxtapose modern style with natural wood, rustic and far-east elements, with a vibrant color palette.

We're excited to open our home to those desiring a unique Palm Springs retreat, and it warms our heart to know that others share in our experience.

Paul & Dean

What makes this house unique

If you like Post-Modern style, you'll love the house. We really tried to pay homage to the original Alexander homes, while making it comfortable, stylish and most of all fun. We like our guests to feel like they're getting away from it all, Palm Springs style.

Paradise in Palm Springs!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was amazing at Paul and Dean's home. Everything was at your fingertips, beautiful open layout, immaculate gourmet kitchen and a backyard to envy. Pool and lounge areas were great. We rent many homes all over the world and by far this is one was one of our favorites! Styled superb and very clean. Well stocked. A five star luxury rental. We will be back!!!

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house. Wow. My husband and I shared several days in this beautifully done home on George Drive with several of our family members. From the pictures, we thought it would be great, but it's not until you see this place in person that you can truly appreciate its beauty. The floor to ceiling windows/doors bring everyone together in this house—so whether you're outside in the pool or chatting in the living space, you always feel like you're together. However, it's also important to note that there is so much common living space in this house that you never feel crowded and there's always a corner you can escape to if you need a little "you" time. The houses amenities are top notch. The speakers throughout the house and pool area are easy to run and create the perfect vibe for any occasion. Paul and Dean were excellent hosts and were available and easy to reach when we had any questions both before and during our trip. We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot for our time in Palm Springs and can't wait to come back next year to make even more memories on George Drive.

House is absolutely gorgeous!!!

  • 5 of 5

August friends and I rent a house every year for our yearly Girls trip (friends since Junior High) 🤗

We rented this house on our 50th...and now our 52nd...we've tried a few others on VRBO but we're drawn back to this house. It is perfect for the 8 of us...enough space, the beautiful pool..the two fridges!!! They have things we forget, and we leave things the next guests may need!!! We all have different personalities...some stay home, some call UBER and catch a short lift to where they need to go....we will be back. It's our yearly commitment to each other. Thanks Paul and Dean for making it so easy.

Another amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed at the George Drive house. Once again Paul and Dean provided an amazing experience. The house was perfect and the owners were attentive. Though the weather in Palm Springs was extremely hot while we were there, the house served as a perfect oasis from the heat. We have already booked our next trip.

Thanks Paul and Dean!!!!!!
