About the property


Complete ground up renovation of this incredible three bedroom, two bath Mid-Century Modern Meiselman, completed in February of 2014. Zen Modern Minimal Interior with one-off details throughout, polished concrete floors, gas fireplace, modern custom kitchen (fully stocked), walk in showers, flat screen TV's, unique/original art, and quality designer appointed furnishings . Breathtaking unobstructed view of Mount San Jacinto from the very private rear yard area, which includes a completely remodeled pool with integrated sun deck, in ground Jacuzzi and large lawn area. Our home is located in the historic Racquet Club East Neighborhood on a fantastic quiet street surrounded completely by other Mid Century Meiselman and Alexander homes.

This home was renovated with extreme attention to the details as a second home for our family, not simply as another typical vacation rental. This is overwhelmingly apparent as soon as you step foot through the front door.

***We are currently vacation renting the home to others to enjoy when we are not in town. Be one of the first to experience this one-of-a-kind home. This house is great for family get-aways, or a small group of friends sneaking away for some down time.

As close to perfect as it gets

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure which was more enjoyable -- the process of renting the Starr House, or actually staying there. The owners and the property manager could not have been more responsive, including after I had arrived. The house is beautifully designed and appointed; as others have noted, the outdoor space is gorgeous (and private). Particular attention to lighting means that both the artwork indoors and the desert landscaping outside are shown to their maximum potential; this is the first place I've stayed at in Palm Springs where all the lighting works. I spent hours every evening out by the pool admiring the show -- first the ocotillos would light up, then the pool area, then the desert olive tree -- as the sun slowly disappeared behind the mountains. The interior and the yard are more than enough to keep you busy, but please also make time to admire the Starr House from the street: its crisp design and desert palette also reflect the great care that the owners have put into this home.

The location puts you closer to the mountains, and far enough north to watch the Air Tram making its way up and down at night. At the same time, Palm Canyon is just a couple blocks away, giving you easy access to downtown. You're also within easy walking distance of Vista Las Palmas and Chino Canyon in case you want to hike around those beautiful neighborhoods (which I did every morning).

There's not an amenity that the owners haven't thought of. If I had been more ambitious I could have cooked or grilled every day (instead I had my meals catered by Trader Joe's). To sum up, the Starr House was the perfect place for a relaxing week in the sun.

Great location and wonderful service

  • 5 of 5

We visted Palm Springs with our kids this spring. The owners promptly replied and provided excellent guidance on family friendly hikes and other activities in the area. Whenever we had questions or needed assitance we received prompt and helpful guidance. Great place for a family to use a base to explore the area as well as hang out by the pool. We’ll come back.

Highly recommend this place.

Another Fantastic Week on Starr Road

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in 2015 and had such a great time that we came back again this year! The house is still as great as ever - very well finished and comfortable. The outdoor space is perfection and we never wanted to leave the pool or lounge chairs. The house manager is very responsive and the owners are great to deal with. Can't recommend this property enough!

Excellent Palm Springs Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house a while back and loved it so much that we're heading back this year. Can't wait!

The look and feel of the house is super clean, well appointed, and tastefully detailed with a very well equipped kitchen for those who like to cook (we do) indoors or at the BBQ. The back yard and pool are clean and spacious and the outdoor speakers and view of the mountains were great bonuses. Beds are very comfy. Neighborhood is quiet and great to drive or walk through if you appreciate mid-century modern architecture that defines Palm Springs.

Owner and Management are great and very accommodating. We really had zero issues with anything, and we're pretty picky!

Definitely an A+.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this house! It was so perfect for our family, including 3 children. The backyard was amazing and we spent most of our time enjoying the pool and the beautiful view. The owner and house manager were fantastic to work with. I would highly recommend this property and we will definitely be back again!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house. Modern, renovated and tastefully decorated. Whole-house sound system, modern kitchen, great pool (turn on the lights at night!), everything you'd want or need. Good location, view from the yard and pool, quiet neighborhood. The grounds and the house are impeccable, it was a pleasure from our first Wow! moment to when we left. The owners and the caretaker are a pleasure to deal with, and are very responsive. Would happily stay here again.
