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.

Spectacular house, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We rented Paul and Dean's lovely house for a girls week. First, Paul was incredibly easy to work with during the booking process. He made it so simple. As we got closer to arrival, he provided us all the information on accessing the house, plus provided a list of his favorite restaurants. The arrival process was easy and we were greeted with a bottle of wine and a welcome note (it's the little touches). Paul called to check on his to make sure that we didn't have any questions.

Their house is amazing - easy for one of us to read in part of the living area, while others watched TV. It's so spacious and has a terrific dining table should you choose to eat inside. The kitchen is the best stocked kitchen I've ever seen - hands down. We had plenty of everything, including platters, serving dishes, etc. It's better stocked than my own home. You will want for nothing in this kitchen.

We spent most of our time at the pool, which had everything we needed including umbrella's, raft's, pool pasta, etc. The view from the pool of the mountains was just spectacular. We ate dinner most nights at the table in the covered area by the pool and grill.

Here's the bottom line - rent this house. You won't be disappointed, the house is high quality and the owners are easy to deal with - you can't ask for more than that. We would absolutely rent this house again when we return to Palm Springs.

This place is fantastic. The house was clean, super well equip with everything we could possibly need for all (adults, kids, dog), and very relaxing. The design is great for both adults looking to get away and also kid friendly. The floors and kitchen Island are awesome. The master suite is huge and luxurious. The pool has a great landing area where you can also put one of the umbrellas for some shade. In our case our toddlers spent many hours playing there. Comfy floaties and plenty of chairs provided for lounging. The mountain views from the pool area are beautiful. All of the tall doors for the house are impressive. You can see whats going on inside from pool and vice versa. The yard is fully fenced. 2 of the bedrooms have doors with access to backyard and attached baths (very convenient), 2 share a nice hall bath and do noth have direct access to outside (which was better for us with young kids). We went with another family of 4 and all had a great time, would definitely love to return with just our family for a getaway or love to bring more guests to share the same experience. The owners are extremely responsive and easy to communicate with. Appreciate the restaurant recs. The attention to detail in all aspects really is outstanding. You can't go wrong with this place. No hesitations.

Fantastic family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this home was absolutely perfect. We had 6 adults and one 3 year old and we had more than enough space to spread out and be comfortable. The house is beautifully maintained and gorgeously decorated. We absolutely loved the pool and loved using both the indoor and outdoor cooking spaces to prepare our meals. The house is fully stocked and has every single thing you can think of. Thank you so much Paul for your hospitality and for opening your home to us. We will absolutely be back again!

Another amazing trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay at the George house. Once again, it was a splendid experience. The house is always perfect, but what makes the trip memorable is Paul and Dean. They are such special people and I feel so fortunate that they open their house to us.

Fabulous reimagined mid-century modern home for the quintessential Palm Springs experience

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all- fully decked out to maximize your Palm Springs stay for the ultimate in indoor-outdoor living- the view of the beautifully lit house from the pool at night is reminiscent of a Case Study House- as the balmy desert winds wash over you, one feels transported and revitalized. This is luxury good for the body, mind and soul- A desert utopia.

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!
