You are invited to delight in the Palm Springs Desert Modernism lifestyle of this recently renovated and designer decorated mid-century architectural treasure. Built in 1958 by the renowned Alexander Construction Company, this 1,600 sq. ft. “gable” home epitomizes the modernist and minimalist signature elements designed by famed architects Palmer & Krisel. It’s post and beam construction, soaring roof lines, exposed masonry rock, vaulted tongue & groove ceilings, open floor plan, generous walls of glass and clerestory windows integrate the home into the natural surroundings to maximize enjoyment of the Palm Springs warm weather and sunshine. Set in scenic Twin Palms, this is the very first mid-century modern neighborhood built by the Alexanders in Palm Springs. Alive with history and rich with character, it’s the ideal home for providing the ultimate vacation experience.

You’ll find the professionally designed interior of this property is a perfect mash-up between the charm and character of yesteryear juxtaposed with the modern day luxuries required of today’s discerning guests. This designer showplace is a stunning display of modernist décor with a sophisticated elegance that captures the magic and fun of Palm Springs living. Designed to facilitate relaxing and easy entertaining, the sweeping open floor plan provides a seamless flow between inside and outside using floor-to-ceiling walls of glass and sliding doors to brighten the living spaces with generous natural light and take advantage of the abundant Palm Springs sun and beautiful mountain vistas. The rooms are artfully appointed with comfort and style at every turn. The fashionable furnishings include white leather sofas, chrome and lacquered accents, plush area rugs, nostalgic artwork & photographs, whimsical accessories, dramatic lighting and exquisite finishes and textures. The cool white walls and polished concrete floors provide a soothing backdrop to the bold pops of color in tangerine orange, apple green and peacock blue.

The expansive living area uses one open space to unite sitting, lounging and dining areas while flowing smoothly to the private backyard oasis. With plenty of comfortable seating for guests, enjoy watching a movie on the 60” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player. Or relax by the massive stone gas fireplace with twinkling glass crystals while listening to your favorite tunes on the IPOD stereo and gazing at the magnificent western mountain views of San Jacinto. You’ll love the nifty wet bar with Viking mini fridge, sink, lacquered cabinets and plenty of glassware for whipping up your favorite trendy cocktails.

The indoor dining area adjacent to the living room seats up to 8 people and is perfect for holiday meals or intimate dinners with close friends and family. The chrome and glass table, bold color Eiffel slope chairs, geometric carpet and sputnik chandelier contribute to the chic modern flair of this swanky dining area.

You’ll enjoy creating tasty gourmet meals in this fully equipped kitchen featuring granite counters, new GE Monogram commercial refrigerator with icemaker and water, stainless kitchen hood & 4-burner cook-top, GE Profile convection and microwave ovens, Electrolux dishwasher, double porcelain sinks, ample cabinet space and much more. There is plenty of room for all of the chefs in this spacious kitchen including a bistro table for those wishing to watch the cooking action. Flooded with abundant natural light from the clerestory windows, there is also access to the private courtyard patio with natural gas BBQ.

The crown jewel of this property is the resort-style outdoor living space allowing you to experience the magnificent desert climate. The completely private and meticulously maintained grounds are fenced, gated and hedged to provide the utmost seclusion and safety for your guests, children or furry friends. Lovely desert gardens abound every inch of the grounds filled with cactus, towering palm trees, ficus hedges, lush green lawn and many varieties of succulent plants. By day, indulge in a refreshing dip in the heated saltwater pool, soak in the sun and terrific mountain views from the sleek modern lounge chairs or relax under the umbrella or covered patio with cool misting system. There are plenty of grassy areas for a round of bocce or playing with kids or dogs. At sunset, enjoy dinner or cocktails seated around the outdoor dining table overlooking the pool and breathtaking mountain views. Or, indulge yourself in the tranquil 6 person jetted spa under the canopy of twinkling desert stars.

All three bedrooms are separated from the main living area, entitling guests to peace and privacy. They each have glass doors leading to an outdoor patio as well as abundant clerestory windows perfectly framing the mountain views and palm tree lined sky. All bedrooms are thoughtfully appointed with hotel quality linens and luxury mattresses, plenty of closet space and storage, colorful artwork, unique furnishings, ceiling fans and stylish rugs.

The glamorous master suite features a King size bed with padded leather headboard, bold print wallpaper, nostalgic celebrity photographs, high quality linens, custom built-in closet and lounge area with 32” flat screen HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player and IPOD doc.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we've had the pleasure of staying at "Glam Gables". From the moment we arrived, we were transended to the ultimate Palm Springs experience. Music playing in every room, lights on, special gifts on table, misters going...the mountain views! I cannot begin to describe how clean and refreshing everything was. Towels, pillows, sheets - incredible. The space is very comfortable and easily sleeps six adults. the outside area is especially nice to sit or eat while enjoying the pool.spa and the views. The property managers couldn't be nicer. Everything you need to know about the house is in the book they prepare for your arrival. They are the greatest hosts in town. We highly recommend staying at one of their properties. You will not be disappointed.

You will always remember Glam Gables

  • 5 of 5

We had a special and amazing visit to Glam Gables over the 2016 New Year's. You really do feel like a Hollywood star back in the day. The kitchen, entertainment center, pool controls, are all thoroughly modern. The pool and spa are wonderful.

You will feel special by the way the property managers treat you. They even left a bag of dog treats for our puppy! And champagne to ring in the New Year!

Glam Gables will be part of your memories forever.

Great family escape

  • 5 of 5

We just rented this house with our two kids (ages 4 and 6). We had the best time. House is beautiful and well appointed. The property managers was incredibly helpful and accessible. Pool and spa were fabulous. Rooms spacious and comfy. A real family friendly rental with the cool Palm Springs vibe the adults like. We can't wait to go back. Great location as well!!!

Can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Glam Gables in Palm Springs. Daria the property manager was extremely helpful and responsive while confirming the rental. Check-in information was clear and the home was perfectly AC-ed for our arrival. We spent a lot of time in the pool and rarely left the house. There was no need to :)

Location is very convenient, close enough to downtown Palm Springs and a short 3 minute drive to the supermarket. Hoping to make this an annual trip!

Glamorous and Comfy

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months in this fabulous home. The cozy outdoor cocktail area is perfect and if the ice cubes melt too quickly for you, turn on the misters. Al fresco dining is easy and the pool/patio usually have a small shaded area for those of us who like the warmth but not the sun. We especially liked all of the doors to access the outdoors, including access to the master bath from the back patio - very handy for swimmers. On cool nights turn on the fireplace; glass beads and flame which fit the surroundings perfectly. If you grill, this is the place for you. A walled patio outside the kitchen outfitted with the big Weber gas grill - what could be better? We would have rented this home again, but it was secured for our dates. Fortunately Stacy and Daria, the very best property managers, had another place in the neighborhood for our dates. We always try to be in the Twin Palms neighborhood. This is a high quality management team as evidenced by the attention to detail of every aspect from pool cleaning, landscaping, interior housekeeping, garbage handling and a thorough household operating manual. You will not be disappointed with Glam Gables and the management team.

A Gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and cocker spaniel) spent the month of January in this home.....it exceeded our already high expectations. It was the perfect size for us, was fully equipped, and with marvelous grounds. The location can't be beat, and while it rests on a busy road, the traffic is barely noticeable. We were so enamoured that we have booked it again next year for even longer.

One of the things that can make or break these types of rentals is the quality and responsiveness of the property manager.....you will find non better than Daria and her partner. They were prompt, courteous and professional through every contact. We highly recommend Glam Gables, but please....we get first dibs!!
