Why Michelle Weinzettl chose Racquet Club Estates

We searched for the right property for months! We had a gut instinct that this was the right property. Why? Big corner lot. Mid-Century gem. Lovely and quiet neighborhood. Off the main streets. Unobstructed views from the backyard!!! PS is know for it's overhead power lines. This property has underground lines, which provides for a perfect view of the mountains and tram!

Pretty darned wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

A classic Alexander butterfly home, designed by Robert Krisel, and in spectacular condition. It was even more than we could hope for; we had not a single problem. The neighborhood is close to everything we were here to see, and if I were able to upload a photo for this review, you’d see a spectacular sunrise turning the looming mountains a fiery red. We were here for Modernism Week; a friend (former editor of House Beautiful and a longtime fan of architect Krisel) stopped by and wagged his finger at us, saying “You were sure lucky to grab this gem! It’s gorgeous!” We agree. If you’re here for Modernism Week, make sure you get tickets to tour like-houses in Racquet Club Estates.

Excellent small mid-mod gem with fab backyard

  • 4 of 5

Perfectly sized for four or five people. Backyard is amazing with hammock, putting green, hot tub and fire pit! Beautiful view of the mountains. It is small but everything needed for a great vaca spot. All appliances are new, bathrooms aren’t luxurious but one of the best showers I’ve had in a rental!

Little touches like bottle of sparkling wine and water waiting for us on arrival, lots of pool chairs and towels, dish soap and detergent, etc made for a great stay. We will be back!

Perfect house for a family

  • 5 of 5

We come to Palm Springs at least once a summer for a family trip. This was our first time staying at the Alexander House, and for sure this was our favorite so far. 2 adults, one small child, and a large dog had more than enough space. The backyard was so amazing! Short drive to all the great restaurants and shops, if you even need to leave the house! Would recommend to other families or perfect for a friends gettaway

Modern, cozy, clean, & charming.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed here this past weekend (July 21st-July 23rd) along with our two dogs, and we had such a great and relaxing time at The Alexander House. From the very beginning, Michelle was great with answering any questions we had and even took the time out of her morning to have a personal conversation with me prior to us booking.

Upon arrival to the house, we were welcomed with a bottle of champagne and Pellagrino water with a welcome note from Michelle and also John, the proper manager. This definitely added a nice welcome touch when coming from a 3.5 drive. The house was absolutely clean when we entered and the AC had been turned on for us, which saved us from the 110 degree weather outside. The inside of the home is modern and cozy, and we loved the open lay out of kitchen. The backyard is huge with a good size pool, putting green, fire pit, pool chairs and pool umbrellas, hammock, a dining table for outside dining, and also a gas grill (which we definitely used the majority of the weekend). Since we brought our two dogs come with us, they absolutely loved roaming the large yard and hanging out at night in the backyard while we BBQ'd for dinner. The bedrooms and bathrooms within the house were all clean, and my parents enjoyed the separate AC in the master bedroom as my fiancé and I love to blast the AC at night and they get colder. The house as DirectTV with movie channels, which we absolutely loved and took advantage of during the hours of the day that were too hot to be in the backyard. Overall, we had a great stay at this property, and we definitely will be coming back again soon! This property is highly recommended for couples, family, and those who love to vacation with their dogs! Thank you Michelle for the hospitality, we absolutely enjoyed everyday of our stay!
