About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath Mid Century Modern Home

Summer special from June 1st to September 30: stay 3 nights, get 4th night free.

Long term (28+ days) available from October - January. Book early!


This vacation home is quintessentially Palm Springs. Designed by Donald Wexler AIA and built in 1960, this property will satisfy the mid century enthusiast and has all the modern conveniences to make your stay comfortable.


Yes, the large salt water pool is in the front yard! This is your own oasis surrounded by lush desert landscaping that looks as stunning lit up at night as it does during the day.


The Lux is bright and has the airy open floor plan that you would expect in a Palm Springs house. It has been decorated with the past in mind with all the present day comforts you enjoy in your own home. Ambiance (or the urge to have a dance party, your choice) is added by the colourful LEDs that light the dimensional tiled wall by the front door.

In the kitchen you'll have all the cookware and utensils you need to prepare any meal, even a holiday extravaganza…or just a cocktail! As for the dining room, you may just find yourself spending the evening there. It is stylish, comfortable and made for entertaining.


From each of the three bedrooms you can watch the sun turn the San Jacinto Mountains rosy every morning. The beds are comfortable with premium quality linens. All bedrooms have HDTVs and docks for your digital devices. The master bedroom has a private patio with two club chairs if you want some solitude.


There are a few outdoor seating areas allow everyone to sit together or spread out for some alone time. The endless sunshine is what most people are looking for in Palm Springs but some will need a shady spot for some respite, the Lux has both.

There is also a Weber grill, outdoor dining table, fire pit and a HotSpring spa.

City of Palm Springs ID 273

The Lux is owner operated and professionally managed. We look forward to hearing from you!

About Crystal

I'm a mid century modern obsessed graphic designer from Vancouver working in the TV and film industry and my partner Kevin is a professional cook who loves sci-fi, golf and the Ottawa Senators. We are both fans of the great outdoors which is a big part of why we love Palm Springs.

Crystal purchased this house in 2014

Why Crystal chose Palm Springs

The mid century neighbourhoods in Palm Springs are amazing. It's an honour to own a Wexler and El Rancho Vista Estates is a beauty. I love the houses and the relaxed quiet neighbourhood.

Wonderful pool experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome visit at the Lux. The property is gorgeous and had all the amenities you could ask for and more. We were worried the airport was too close but it was not too bad at all with the front yard pool set up. The entire house was very clean and comfortable and our daughter loved playing outside and swimming in the spectacular swimming pool. It is very private and beautifully landscaped and even though we had a very windy stay, we were able to feel comfortable outdoors in the warm pool and hot tub. The beds and pillows were super comfortable and made for a great nights sleep. We would love to come back and visit the Lux again very soon. Great location, just minutes from downtown PS and very easy access to the freeway heading out of town. So much care has gone into making you feel comfortable here, it was a real treat.

Thanks to Crystal, Kevin and Josh

Can't wait to come back.

Perfect place to relax with family

  • 5 of 5

We really couldn't have asked for more from the Lux! It absolutely lives up to the posted pictures. The property was immaculate and all things well maintained. Josh, the property manager, was exceptionally responsive to any questions. Would most definitely stay here again. Thanks for opening your home.

Beautiful and stylish mid century modern home

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully presented and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a fantastic vacation. The outside areas and pool are really versatile with a variety of sunny and shaded areas. It's only a short drive away from downtown Palm Springs and local grocery stores.

Crystal was very responsive in sorting out our booking at short notice and Josh the local property manager was flexible with our arrival and departure times which was greatly appreciated.

We would definitely return here.

Wonderful mid century modern experience loaded with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Crystal and Kevin's beautiful home. The pool is great and kept super clean. The pool area lovely to chill, have morning coffee, read your book, or just zone out. The other design of the home that is great is all the areas, both inside and out to relax in. Inside, the large and beautifully furnished living room, the dining room, and the kitchen are all great areas. Outside, not only did we use the pool area, but the fire pit and hot tub were well used as we had a cooler week of weather than normal.

Lastly, one of the best compliment we can give Crystal and Kevin is that we felt like we were staying in a home that is truly loved by its owners.

Lastly, Josh was great at check in and very responsive when we needed some tips about things around the house.

Oh, and did we mention the Miele coffee machine - a definite fav.

We've stayed in many vacation homes and can honestly say this was one of our favourites. We will work hard to go back again someday.
