Recently awarded Palm Springs Historic Designation and on tour for Modernism Week. Secured property with ground floor entrance, like arriving at a home. This boutique complex has 9 units, each surround the refreshing pool and lanai area with fabulous views of the looming mountains and swaying palms. This very hip and newly remodeled condo was detailed with gorgeous wood floors for clean, easy living and comfort. Arrive Hotel is just half a block up street for free use of heated pool, hot tubs. Fire pits, restaurants, bar, coffee shop and ice-cream parlor are also available. The large one bedroom with Kingvaize bed, features a master bathroom with the original mid-century vanity and large walk in, step-down shower. There is a comfortable and private outdoor lounging area with 78 foot long patio to front of the condo where you can dine with a mountain view. There is a second full guest bathroom.

This bright modern glamorous unit has sliding glass doors that open from 2 areas in the living/dining room, with view of the pool and mountains. Free basic cable and Wi-Fi included. This spacious living space of 900 sq. ft. feels very open and fresh. The indoor and outdoor living space offers conversational seating areas defining a lifestyle of elegant informality.

Gorgeous dining room chandelier casts a warm evening glow throughout the unit so you feel like you are living in ultimate comfort and luxury. The unit is lovingly appointed with only the best modern furnishings. There is a white leather couch with side chair and ottoman and spacious thoughtful placement of furniture for easy walking access to outdoor patios. Sit back and read as you gaze at the mountain tops or lounge and watch TV. As dusk approaches, watch the sun set behind the San Jacinto Mountains. Enjoy the night sky filled with stars and dine outdoors to the sound of a breeze in the palm trees. Walk to town.

Heated Pool and spa with fire pits are available free to my guests at Arrive Hotel which is 1/2 block away. Great local Brew House across the road.

About Cathy Geddes

Originally from Toronto, I moved to San Diego 18-years ago, but always loved Palm Springs as my winter get-a-way. I have created this newly remodeled condo as a reflection of my experience of Palm Springs including features that will take you back into the old Hollywood star experience of glitz and glam. I know you will enjoy your long term stay at my property.

Cathy Geddes purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cathy Geddes chose Old Las Palmas

We chose this property for the iconic interior courtyard with old Palm Springs charm and spectacular surrounding mountain views. Spacious 1 bedroom with Master Bath and a 2nd full bathroom for guests. This is a very quiet and small complex with only 9 units surrounded by the outdoor pool and lanai area for lounging. Very private property with secure Mid-Century classic Hollywood style doors that greet your arrival to the most spectacular mountain view setting. Newly opened Arrive Hotel offers our guest full use of the hotel, located walking distance, (half a block from condo.)

What makes this condo unique

King bed, Single floor, boutique complex with grass and concrete walkways to your door.

We have had two stays in this condo and will be returning for a third stay in January 2017! We love it! The space is perfect for 2 people...lovely, clean and bright and equipped with all the necessities one might need, a generous sized bedroom and 2 bathrooms. It has a large private patio which one can access off both the bedroom and the living room and coin-operated laundry facilities are located just steps away from the condo. With only 9 condos in this mid-century one-level gated complex, it is extremely private and is mostly very quiet. When you step inside the Main Door (gate), you will be greeted by a beautiful desert oasis in the centre of which is a small pool which has a lovely roofed area providing tables and shade...a perfect place to sit out or take a cool dip! Eating establishments are just steps away, and if you want to venture further, the very inexpensive Sunline bus service, which we used regularly to pop down to the centre of town, is just a 2-3 min walk from the condo. Plus, there’s the free Buzz Bus Service Thursday to Sunday! And to top things off, the owner is just the best...pleasant, professional, efficient, thoughtful and accommodating! Who could ask for more?! Carol & Brian

Not only a fantastic historic condo, but a warm, caring and attentive landlord.

  • 5 of 5

The historical setting is very different than other Palm Springs rentals. The hosts' pictures describe it quite adequately. The decor beautifully suited the "Mid Century Modern", historical nature of the complex. The hostess, has quite a knack for design. The condo was well stocked, better than we have experienced in the past with other locations. We loved the quietness and privacy of the complex. The two bathrooms were a bonus for us and the bed was very comfortable. We could eat indoors or outdoors in the unit as our whim dictated. The whole complex being on one floor surrounding the pool made access to our unit very easy. The unit is well situated. One can walk, hike, cycle anywhere. Neighbors were friendly and respectful. The covered parking kept our vehicle from overheating during the day time. We hope to be back sometime soon and would recommend it without hesitation.

We were delighted to find Cathy and Glen waiting at the condo when we arrived with the makings of a good cup of tea handy. Everything was sparkling clean, beautifully fitted out and well-stocked. The décor is bright and quirky.

We just loved the step-down shower in the en suite and have been scratching our heads to see if there`s a way we can copy it at home.

Considering how convenient the condo is to Palm Canyon Dr. , the bus route and downtown it is exceptionally quiet. The ability to close hallway and kitchen doors allowed one partner to watch TV while the other one had peace to read in the bedroom.

Cathy could not have been more helpful and made sure that we could contact her if necessary.

Beautiful property with an outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Often the online description and photos do not match the actual property. Not so in this case. This Old Las Palmas condo exceeded expectation. Situated in a glamorous neighborhood with amazing mid century architecture and the mountains as a backdrop, our morning walks were a visual feast. The condo interior, christened "Gone Hollywood" could not have been more accurate, it was imaginative and fun. The condo layout with one large bedroom and two full baths was perfect for the two of us. The interior was light, airy and open with an excellent flow. The main shopping district and a vast assortment of restaurants is a short walk away. Cathy, the condo owner met us at the door and gave us a detailed tour of the premises and responded promptly to our requests and questions. I can't recommend this fabulous property highly enough, we had a blast!
