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.

Impressive, gorgeous house that looks even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this house are amazing, but we are all used to seeing the photos that are taken with a wide angle lens, then getting to the house and having the house feel smaller.

This house is BIGGER and BETTER than the photos.

Other huge bonuses? You'll never run out of towels- even if you never wash them. Usually rentals cut corners but this rental goes above and beyond. There are plenty of supplies including beach towels. Plus the kitchen is better equipped than most main homes. There are tons of plates for both indoors and out. Plus awesome plastic wine glasses to enjoy drinks poolside. There are even bathrooms in each room which was an unexpected touch! Beds are comfortable, sheets are high quality and bedding is clean! The owner is easy to work and communicate with. You can tell he takes pride in his home. Location is great- it's an easy 5 minute drive to downtown and just a couple minutes to the grocery store and Starbucks!

You'll be so in love with this house you'll never want to leave! I'd love to write a negative review so this house doesn't get too popular, but I can't because we loved everything and cannot wait to return.

Want more?

The kitchen is bigger than the photos and the ceilings higher! The home feels spacious but also connected. This house is perfect for a family because the kitchen has a bar for breakfast and connects right to a smaller relaxing family room with TV. Dining room is as beautiful and impressive as the photos show and the other living area is beautiful. We opened the doors and just enjoyed the breeze! Each of the guest rooms are cute and clean. The master bedroom is stunning with an amazing closet and huge bathroom. The entire house is very clean and perfectly decorated. The pool is huge and I laid on a lounge chair in the pool for hours a day. And we loved using the outdoor table and BBQ. It was fun to use the hot tub and fire pit at night!

Absolutely the best property we have stayed at in Palm Springs!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Palm Springs and renting houses for many years. Paul and Dean's George Drive house was absolutely the best experience. It is obvious they have impeccable standards.The house was spotlessly clean and appointed with all things necessary for a worry free vacation - and the music and entertainment systems are great and easy to use. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac with a view of the mountains, this indoor-outdoor living experience was just what we needed to recharge. Thanks P&D, we can't wait to return next year!

Another fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Paul and Dean's home. Once again everything was perfect. The home served as a great base for all of our activities. Can't wait for our next stay in a few months.

Thank you Paul and Dean for being such wonderful hosts.

All our best,

Sarah, Betty and Stuart

Amazing House Perfect for Family Travel

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property that is even better than the photos! The house, property and views are gorgeous but what really impressed me was how family-friendly this rental was. The owners REALLY thought of everything when it comes to traveling with kids. You can literally leave everything at home because there was a pack-n-play, high chair, stroller, baby jumper, play mat, pool floats, life jackets, baby + kids silverware, extra diapers etc. The house was also a 2 minute drive, or 10-15 walk to a large grocery store and a huge park with playground (swings, slides etc) which is essential when traveling with little ones!

The neighborhood was wonderful, very quiet, great for walking and the house is located on a cul-de-sac. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need and more including tupperware, plastic bags, foil and condiments which you hate to buy if you are only staying for a short period of time.

The overall layout of the house was great because there were essentially 2 common areas, both with TV's so everyone had their own space. The master suite was a private oasis complete with its own patio and outdoor seating area. The beds were super comfy and the couches were surprisingly soft and comfortable too! I will absolutely be back and wont hesitate to recommend this property to anyone!

Fantastic house and pool

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Paul and Dean's house. It's a great property that has everything you could need. We especially appreciated all the kid and baby items at the house, which made the stay so much easier for my brother and sister-in-law, who have two young kids. There's plenty of room so that 7 people never felt cramped and the backyard/pool was also spacious and well-maintained. Paul was a great communicator and checked in to ensure everything was going smoothly for us. We'd love to come back!
