The great room is open and bright with clean sleek design, offering clerestory windows and walls of glass looking out over the private pool and remarkable mountain backdrop. The simple sliding glass doors of the 50's have been replaced with top-of-the-line expansive Fleetwood pocket doors that brings together the indoor and outdoor living that makes Palm Springs such a special vacation home destination. Seamless transition from inside to outdoors makes this an ideal midcentury modern vacation home.

You'll find the kitchen in this midcentury modern vacation home is a chef's delight, featuring stainless steel appliances, abundant quartz countertop prep space, gas range, and all of the small appliances you'll need to prepare delicious meals for friends and family.

Excellent Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Excellent family vacation home We stayed at Sleek Retreat for 1 week during March 2017. This beautiful home is well equipped and was perfect for our family of 5. The reservation process was very professional. We did not have any interaction with the vacation managers apart from key pick up and drop off.

Gem In A Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Gem in a beautiful setting The house was well located with lovely mountain views. The pool was wonderful and at the perfect temperature. Really loved the fire pit, we used it almost every night because it was kind of chilly. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The house feels very private, and it is a very quiet neighborhood.

Quiet Retro Fun

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful in its retroness and I absolutely loved it. The house was clean, and comfy while being very relaxing in the quiet neighborhood it was settled in. The facilities on the property were amazing. Loved the openness of the sliding glass walls out to the back with the pool and yard and fire pit. Our family had a wonderful time with our Mothers Day weekend getaway that we all very much needed.
