About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath Mid Century Modern Home


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


The large salt water pool surrounded by vibrant seating and lounges greet you on arrival. Yes, the pool is in the front yard - and it’s still private enough for you to go au natural if that’s your thing! 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. Original art is throughout the house, and yes, you’ll find a few by Shag too! The living room has ample seating with a large HDTV, Blu-ray player and a Bluetooth ready Samsung sound bar for TV audio or your digital music devices. 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 there is everything you need to prepare any meal, even a holiday extravaganza…or just a cocktail! Grab some oranges or lemons from the trees out back. Your morning coffee from the built-in Miele espresso machine is the way to start the day, it will be filled with beans and ready to go when you arrive. 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 plush beds are luxurious 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.


The multiple custom upholstered 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 to satisfy everyone's needs.

Your favourite place to end the day of soaking up the Palm Springs lifestyle may be the Sunset Patio where you can cook your dinner on the Weber grill, eat at the outdoor dining table, relax by the fire pit or have a soak the deluxe HotSpring Grandee spa.


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 Deserts

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! 4.9/5 -

Stunning property amazing service

  • 5 of 5

We stay at the Lux a few times a year and we are looking forward to the next time! The property is amazing, quiet clean and nearby to grocery shopping. The beds are the absolute most comfortable it's a hilight if the trip to sleep. If you need anything during your stay Josh will be at your service. The pool is beautiful and the layout is perfect for 2- 3 families.

a wonderful and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Me and 5 guys crashed The Lux for a quick weekend getaway.

What a great space to chill, soak, prepare our own meals, and veg out.

The entire space lent itself to such a chill vibe. We took advantage of most areas to read, talk, watch youtube videos and laugh the day away.

Bedrooms were super comfy and great spaces to retire for the night.

The saltwater pool was so refreshing. It got much use.

We all would love to make a tradition of visiting The Lux.

All the info Crystal provided on the site (and in their very detailed house book) were spot on!

We had some issues with wifi, but when we connected with the property manager, were informed that it was a larger area that's not their fault.

Everything was clean and well maintained with the exception of the gate locks. I was a little afraid I'd break the key in trying to turn it...but once I got the hang of it...they worked out.

Already recommending the spot to friends looking to head to Palm Springs!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jered! Glad to hear you and the guys had a great time. Thanks for letting us know about the wifi. We are going to upgrade or change our service provider entirely to fix that problem. Also good to know about the locks, we will look into fixing that as well. We'd love to be your regular getaway spot and thanks so much for recommending the house!

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property with my two daughters and a few friends to celebrate a birthday. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property from the pool to the interior and the location. It exceeded our expectations on so many levels. The pool and yard layout is ideal to lounging and enjoying the wonderful desert weather and views. The pool size is great and the temperature was perfect. The interior of the home is done very well and has so many little extras that make it unique. We never left so having a well appointed kitchen with a perk. We will most definitely rent this property again. The owners and the property manager were all so great to work with as well. Can't wait for our next trip!

Beautiful Retro House

  • 4 of 5

Five of my girlfriends and I rented this property and it was the perfect size for our group. We were met by the property manager, Josh, and given a full tour of the house when we checked in. The book with all the house and local area information was also very helpful during our weekend stay. The house and outside areas are exactly as they appear in the photos and the environment is very relaxing. The neighborhood that the property is in is very quiet even though the airport is not too far away.

The house was very clean and well stocked (cooking utensils, plates, towels, pillows, pool toys, etc.). Everything around the house was easy to find. There is a very nice kitchen that we used to make breakfast and lunch. The entire property is fenced in and very private. We really enjoyed using the pool and it was a blessing because there was the first heat wave of summer while we were there. We also enjoyed the hot tub.

There were a few hiccups during our stay, but they didn't detract from our trip. The first were the propane tanks for the grill being left empty, but the property manager got them switched out within 15 minutes of notifying him. Second was the Blu Ray player not functioning as we had thought. We had tried to watch a movie, but found out that the player was not able to play DVDs. We attempt to sign into our own person Netflix/Hulu accounts but could not because it was not wired to the internet and could not work off a WiFi connection. After we checked out, the property manager was notified about the player.

Despite the minor issues, I would highly recommend this property for a stay in Palm Springs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a great review Ashley! I'm happy that your girls getaway was a success... Minus the TV situation! Thanks for letting us know, we are going to replace the DVD player and add internet connectivity to the TV. Streaming is the way everything is headed so it's time for us to upgrade. Thanks for your comments regarding this, it helps us meet people's expectations when they stay. Glad to hear that Josh was quick with the propane! He really is a key part of the guest experience and are super happy to have him on our team.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We were three adult couples looking for a getaway from the Seattle rain for a long weekend. From beginning to end we had a great stay. The house was BEAUTIFUL and had all the amenities we needed. The pool was a welcome break from the heat and we took advantage of the hot tub and BBQ. The house is located close to the airport, which initially had us concerned about noise but it didn't become an issue. The house was very clean when we arrived with a detailed welcome book providing all the instructions and local tips. The home was close enough to reach the heart of downtown Palm Springs but far away to have us feeling like we were in a residential neighborhood. Overall a terrific time. Crystal was great to work with!
