The City Of Palm Springs ID# 2604
The Racquet Club House was built in 1960 by the Alexander Building Company as a vacation home for busy city dweller. Located centrally in the historic Racquet Club Estates, it’s surrounded on all sides by other restored mid-century Alexanders for that true historic feel.
The house just emerging from a year-long ground up restoration that updated all systems and features to meet today’s demanding requirements - making living in the desert an effortless and pleasant experience. The house was also featured on the 2014 Modernism Week house tour as one of the top attractions.
With a traditional Alexander layout it features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 6 people in bedrooms configured with one king, one queen and two twin beds. All bedrooms have direct access, through sliding doors, to a large garden, patio and pool area – making for a great indoor/outdoor experience.
The kitchen is of course all new with all stainless appliances and Caesar stone counter tops, and also features wonderful mountain views through the clerestory windows that fill the entire west facing wall of the living room and kitchen.
Lovers of modern furniture will fill right at home in this house with a selection of original pieces from Eames, Nelson, Noguchi, Kartell, Marimekko and many other original manufacturer. The owner is a furniture connoisseur and is constantly on the hunt for new classic furniture to complement the design of the house.
The living room features ample seating for enjoying pre-dinner cocktails while being cozy around the gas burning fireplace. Large windows towards the garden also bring light and outdoor views into the house – this really is modern indoor/outdoor living at its best.
The Media Room is centered around a large flat screen TV with built in Netflix, YouTube and other smart apps. A Netflix account has already been set up so unlimited movie watching is an option - even though we also recommend trying all the other things that Palm Springs has to offer :-)
The outdoors presents many opportunities for relaxation – take a swim in the over sized pool with a built in tanning shelf (9” of water) or jump into the hot tub next to the outdoor gas burning fire pit for a late night star gazing session. A large shade structure shields you from the sun during the day once your tanning sessions are over.
An outdoor shower makes rinsing off and getting ready for a night out in town easy and convenient – this is always one of the most loved features when guests visit.
Least but not last, a nice sized lawn ads some color and a great place for playing with kids or just hang out.
The entire house and garden is covered by a wireless network so getting your daily fix of internet news and updates is only a click away.
A guest house is also on site but not available for rental as it’s exclusively used by the owner.

Hello and thanks for checking out my house in Palm Spring. Having grown up in Denmark and not moving to the US until later in life, you could probably argue that I should be a natural lover of modern design - which exactly is what I am. This is the third Alexander that I have owned in Palm Springs and by far the best. I work in tech and live in Silicon Valley, so having the ability to escape to Palm Springs for a long weekend of fun is something that I really appreciate.
Nick purchased this House in 2011
Why Nick chose Palm Springs
I have known about mid-century homes in Palm Springs for many years, but it wasn't until about 5 years ago that I decided to buy my own house in the desert. It obviously grew on me and after having previously restored two other Alexanders I have now just recently completed this one. I am a bit obsessive when it comes to quality and have spent far more on this house than I would have done had it just been a quick flip since I'm planning on keeping it for a long time.
What makes this House unique
The larger floor plan of this house combined with an over-sized lot (10,500 sq ft) really sets it apart - you really feel like you are staying in your own little oasis of modern marvels :-)

We LOVED our time staying in this house. Everything was perfect! The kitchen is well stocked with sharp knifes, quality cookware, and a gas range (plus a really nice grill outside). The house is impeccably clean and tastefully furnished and decorated. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool and outdoor living area immensely. We hope to stay there again soon.
Great Family Weekend Getaway
What a great property for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids). The pool and spa were perfect to hang out in and the house was well appointed. The location was great and it seemed like we were just a short drive from everyplace we wanted to go. I would definitely recommend this spot!
Great house. Tons of room for our family. The pool and hot tub were fantastic
This is a great place to stay. We went to stagecoach. Easy to get to from here. Everything is close. The house is in great shape. Service was fantastic. We would recommend this to anyone. We are coming back for sure.
Super clean and unique. Pool, spa, grassy area were awesome!
Great rental, positive vibes.
Perfection: Private, Clean, and Well Designed
Wow, what a great stay! My husband and I rented this lovely home for 6 nights earlier in the month and we absolutely loved it. We travel OFTEN and always rent homes via Airbnb, Homeaway, TripAdvisor...and this house is the BEST we've ever rented.
The property was fantastic. Great floor plan, really nice furnishings, and fully stocked with everything one would need (towels, spices, etc). The care that was put into the house is obvious.
The outdoor space was perfection. We opted to have the pool heated, which was a nice choice. The jacuzzi was clean, as was the pool. The 6 ft walls around the perimeter of the home allowed for great privacy!
Location was also very good: .7 miles from nearest grocery store, 5 minutes from the Downtown area, and a very easy to navigate neighborhood.
TL, DR: This house is an A++.
Great House with Mid-Century Charm
The house was just as lovely in person as the photos. It was clean and clearly well taken care of. The owners were very responsive throughout the booking process and provided all of the necessary information regarding the house in a binder when we arrived. It was the perfect weekend getaway for our small group of friends.
Palm Springs is the perfect weekend or vacation getaway for busy city dwellers. It often been said that once you arrive in Palm Springs time slows down. The Racquet Club House is located in the historic Racquet Club Estate in northern Palm Springs - a neighborhood having one of the largest concentration of mid-century houses in the country. Originally developed by the Alexander Building Company in the later 50's and early 60's as vacation homes for celebrities and the masses alike, most houses have today been restored and offer an amazing time travel opportunity back to the jet set age of what makes Palm Springs what it is today.
