Delight in the Eames era ambiance and the whole classic Palm Springs lifestyle, complete to the library of classic books on the movie stars, furnishings, and architecture of the 1950's era as well as desert living.
Convenient Covered Parking is directly adjacent to the front door. Upon entering Your Home, marvel at the stunning cool and calming blue and green capiz shell Chandelier that sways in the entry and then at the exceptional uniqueness of the fan folded ceiling.

Two Shaded Chaises Lounges serve one's desire for either private tanning or restful napping.
Within Your Vacation Home's 1,450 sq. ft. lies a brilliant, beautiful, and unique respite.
Situated Alone In This Impeccably Maintained 30 Unit MidCentury Development by Barry Berkus, Architect; a large area of cool green grass graces your own front yard. Around the corner, visually and acoustically buffered from your home, is the large common area swimming pool and spa that savor the panaoramic view of the Taquitz mountain range.
Ideally Located For Your Convenience, as within an easy one block walk is the Manhattan Restaurant, one of Palm Springs favorites for its New York menu from breakfast thru dinner, and within two blocks are grocery stores, coffee house, banks, and new general shopping centers. Within an easy two mile drive, bike ride, or bus ride (main bus route is 1/2 block) is downtown Palm Springs and all its day and night life, in the other direction along adjacent Hwy 111 about 8 easy miles you will find El Paseo Drive, the shoppers delight of specialty stores and more restaurants.

Or Just Go Out Your Front Door And Stroll up the rustic, scenic, and quiet Araby Canyon to enjoy nature trails and millenium old river washes.
Located Just South of Palm Canyon Drive (Hwy. 111) in South Palm Springs, this Area was chosen by the original settlers for its freedom from the renowned winds and sand storms, only cooling, calm Breezes refresh You here along with clean stunning mountain views.

About the owner: My expeience as an architect and our travels throughout the US and Europe provide me with an understanding of your needs as a long term vacationer. This Home Was Completely Setup for your comfort. By the way, as a student I worked for Your Vacation Home's architect, Barry Berkus, who designed this project. Small world huh? Though now retired, am still enjoying camping, hiking, restauranting, and museuming. This is your, and my, place to call Home Base. To return to and Chill. Which is Why This Home is so attractive to me, for I've been enjoying Palm Springs since 1950 or so.
Why the Owner Chose Araby Commons, Palm Springs, CA, USA:
Unique in its classic mid-century design and location in the wind free south PS, which I've return to for some 55 years, and for its convenience to many attractions, activities (including horse riding, yoga, hiking, water park, museums,, shopping, eating, golf, and tennis).
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Close To All Desert Life and Activities, Private, Spacious, Clean, Refurbished, Refurnished, Repainted, Great Lounging Areas (indoors and out), a sense of Neat, Clean, Special.
