The City Of Palm Springs ID# 2603

Classic Palm Springs mid-century modern vacation pad in historic Racquet Club Estates sits on a quiet street and is close to trendy Uptown design district restaurants and shops. Light, bright and brand-new down to the studs, this iconic gem was designed by the legendary William Krisel and built by the Alexander construction company. Inside the open-plan kitchen features all-new appliances, ease of use and the ability to cook and socialize all at the same time. The living room offers modern furniture, a large flat screen TV, Blu-ray player and a fantastic fireplace with glass accents that will heat the whole room. Pull back the sliding doors and outside becomes inside for the type of seamless weekend entertaining that made Palm Springs famous. The large, backyard offers privacy, plenty of grass and the perfect place to relax. The newly refurbished pool beckons you to cool down and chill out. Lounge by the fire-pit, grill at the barbecue or kick back on the huge daybed and soak in the sun and gorgeous mountain views. Just minutes from downtown Palm Springs, drive or use the three available bikes to explore the restaurants, shops and tree-lined neighborhoods of the Movie Colony and Vista Las Palmas that made the rat pack famous.

Why Nick Sabbagh chose Palm Springs

We wanted a classic mid-century modern that was way more comfortable than originally intended. Kittyhawk had all that plus amazing mountain views, easy access to uptown and a huge backyard.

What makes this house unique

Location. Location. Location. Indoor-Outdoor seemless living and fantastic views with a huge backyard and privacy.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely property. Totally accurate photos and description with the property clean and well maintained, lots of clean towels for indoor and outdoor use and fresh linen on the beds. Great customer service before our stay - queries / messages answered quickly, and we were left uninterrupted by the owner / management co during our stay (also by gardeners and pool cleaners who slipped in and out unobtrusively during our stay!). A convenient spot to be in Palm Springs, well placed for local amenities yet tranquil and restful. We would love to return for another break and would thoroughly recommend this property.Response

Great stay at the mid century mellow!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 1 week stay at the mid century mellow. My husband and I with our 3 children thoroughly enjoyed the home and the wonderful yard. The home is situated on a very nice property, definitely one of the best on the street, it feels larger. The pool was great to cool off in the August heat, the kids spent hours a day swimming. The house was perfect to take a break from high temperatures and read a book or watch a bit of T.V.

The home was decorated with a mid century vibe, beds were comfy and kitchen fully stocked with everything we needed to cook a nice dinner.

Nick was very responsive and catered to our needs quickly.

My husband and I both agree that this property is very good value.

Great property

  • 4 of 5

Great property, would stay again. Owner and property manager very accommodating. Only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars is there is no way to block sun on back of house and the kitchen/living area gets very warm. Easily fixed by getting in the great pool.

Side note* Palm Springs has a noise ordinance that doesn’t allow any music outside.

Loved it

I really enjoyed it the only thing i would change about the house so it can be perfect is the blinds too much light in the mornings and that makes it get hotter
