You’ll enjoy walking in the footsteps of Old Hollywood residents like Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Debbie Reynolds, Joan Collins, Kirk Douglas and Dinah Shore. It’s the ultimate Palm Springs getaway for modernism enthusiasts, family vacations, a romantic couples weekend or snowbirds looking for a private, relaxing, warm retreat. We strive to provide you all the comforts of home without the work. That is why we offer all our guests access to a local property manager on call to attend to your needs. Weekly gardening service, estate disposal service and pool service twice per week are also provided. Just pack your sunscreen and toothbrush and head to the Swank House!

This property is nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains in the historic Vista Las Palms neighborhood of Central Palm Springs.

You’ll be able to enjoy all the activities this famous city has to offer including hiking, biking, horseback riding, gambling and riding the PS Arial Tramway.

International guests will find Palm Springs to be an ideal "home base" for daytrip excursions to Southern California. Enjoy nearby Joshua Tree National Monument (an extraordinary national park set in the desert) and theme parks within a two-hour drive including Disneyland (Anaheim) and Sea World (San Diego), as well as a Knotts Waterpark in Palm Springs.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over the weekend to celebrate a birthday. Amazing set up. Each couple (4) had plenty of space and lots of areas to go for privacy. The backyard was like being in an oasis - truly loved watching the hummingbirds. The kitchen was huge and laid out just right for multiple chefs. Just a phenomenal place to make some wonderful memories with great friends. Kudos to the owners and the designers.

Swank House lives up to it's name!

  • 5 of 5

Swank house is amazing!! I've been to other properties in Palm Springs and nothing compares to this one. Each room has it's own private bathroom. When you come to Palm Springs this is the one to rent. It has the most amazing backyard with plenty of seating, lounges and outdoor shower to rinse off before you head back in. The pool is an awesome size. We had about 8 different pool floats in the pool and still had room to spare. Theres a great little putting green that'll keep you entertained for hours.

The house itself is single story which is perfect. All rooms have TV's, cable, and internet. The house was fully stocked with whatever you needed for the perfect getaway. Plenty of towels a full washer and dryer.

Kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, cutting boards and silverware. They also had an amazing blender that blended up ice like no other. We were making Margaritas all weekend! Swank house is the perfect combination of luxury and comfort. The owners thought of everything there is a window that opens up from the kitchen that has a ledge so you can pass food back and forth to the BBQ. The range is a gas range which is always nice! Lots of storage everywhere. They also have a huge sub zero fridge & freezer that must have been at least 10 feet long. Downtown is very close by with tons of restaurants.

I can't wait to come back! This is the house you want if you come to Palm Springs. This just feels like a home away from home. Just pack up your clothes and food because Swank House has everything else that you need.

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting vacation homes in Palm Springs for over 10 years, and the Swank House is definitely the one we will return to in years to come. Everything about it was lovely, inside and out; attention to every detail was perfect, and the location was ideal. It was even better than the photos!

Amazing Views and Fun

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for my adult children for our wedding in Palm Springs. The positives of the place is incredible views and the negatives of the place are incredible views. Once you our at the property enjoying the ambience and the views there is little motivation to leave. The property is located close to down, on a quiet cul de sac, plenty of space with each bedroom with it's on chic bathroom and an open area that combines the very best of PS of the outdoor and indoor living. Throughout the property it is hard to not enjoy the surrounding views of the mountains. The backyard has everything that one would want - spa, bbq, shallow pool area, lounge chairs, sitting chairs and putt putt golf etc. Daria the house manager made the experience a breeze. Always thinking about our best interest and keeping everything uncomplicated. Bottom line this is a great property that is Chic, Modern and Very Hip. What a great experience......thanks for having us.....

Perfect Retreat for Adults and Couples; Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

We were the very first renters of this lovely home, after the remodel. The house, property, and neighborhood, particularly the backyard, are beautiful, tranquil and enjoyable. Unlike many vacation homes listed online, everything here is "at least" as beautiful as the photos show. The PSP property management team was helpful and attentive, which was appreciated. Some might say this home was overkill for just the two of us; but it was a last minute 8 night trip to defrost, and we felt it was still a good value. Two or three couples could easily stretch out here, and not feel cramped. Even four couples, since the are four king size bed suites. But it's not a place for children or pets. And as with many properties in nicer Palm Springs neighborhoods, it's not a place for parties or any noise above a whisper. This neighborhood in particular, is almost silent, even during prime time. So, you have to want that kind of vacation, which we did. It's located within easy walking distance to downtown for most people. Fun to cook indoors and grill outside too. There are lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit trees growing and producing delicious fruit in the backyard. We have stayed in many vacation rentals, and this is probably the nicest one, all things considered. A 9 or 10 for sure. Enjoy!

Its the PERFECT house!

  • 5 of 5

Every summer we rent a palm springs home and the SWANK HOUSE tops the list! The house is immaculate, spacious, classy, well-stocked... you name it! The decorating is a 10, the kitchen is fabulous, and then to the backyard which is what we really look for in our palm springs summer home rental... the yard is so spacious and has EVERYTHING you need with a nice sized pool and a huge tanning shelf. The icing on the cake is the management company. They were right there for anything we needed and were so pleasant to deal with. I've always been leery of the homes that require the cash security deposit, but I'm happy to say its fully legit. Would recommend this place a thousand times over and can't wait to go back!
