Property description

Welcome to Marcel's Retreat! This architecturally significant midcentury home is designed for desert indoor/ outdoor living with an expansive, completely private yard. The entire property is truly a special retreat with many enjoyable areas for relaxing. The house was built by Meiselman in the midcentury and retains the beautiful post and beam ceilings throughout all the rooms. Slate flooring unites the interior and exterior living spaces. The home is tastefully decorated in a whimsical manner to create the ultimate desert retreat. Each bedroom has glass doors which open into a separate area of the beautifully landscaped, private backyard. The master bedroom or "Baa's Room" has a queen sized bed with luxe linens, an ensuite bathroom with a bathtub, and a walk-in closet. The lamps in the master bedroom are midcentury and this room is named after the sheep who resides at the entry to the room who ensures a good night's sleep. The second bedroom or "Giraffe Room" also has a queen sized bed, a large closet and a lovely view of the Gazebo and bougainvillea tree. This bedroom is named after the Giraffe that resides next to the glass door leading out to the yard. The third bedroom or "Zebra Room" is the home's library, or baby/childrens' nursery if you prefer, and boasts a view of the pool. The Zebra Room has a futon couch which folds out into a queen sized futon bed which rests on the floor and is very firm and comfortable. The Zebra Room is named after the Zebra that resides in the corner of the room. When arranged as a nursery at our guests' request, the Zebra room has a glider/rocking chair, a pack n play, inflatable toddler bed, a baby monitor and black out curtains. There is a second bathroom next to the Giraffe Room and Zebra room with a large step down shower. The living room of the home features a luxurious, full-sized sofa, a love seat, a chaise lounge, and is accented by period lighting and playful decor, all with beautiful views of the pool and outdoor terrace. The living room also has a flat-screened television with DirectTV, a cozy reading corner and there is free wireless internet throughout the property. The terrace of the home overlooks the salt water pool and contains a full-sized sofa and two arm chairs. The glass dining room table seats six and has views of the pool as well. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would expect to find in a chef's kitchen and has direct access to the outdoor dining Gazebo. The Gazebo is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor meals with seating for six and a lovely mountain view. There is also a hammock hung between two palm trees which boasts views of the pool, giant palms and cactus, as well as clear, starry night skies. No stay at Marcel's Retreat is complete without spending time in the hammock.

For our guests with children, upon request, we will make available our commercial grade toddler-safe pool fence which separates the pool from the rest of the property. We also have a pack 'n play, an inflatable toddler bed, an adjustable height highchair which can be used indoors and outdoors throughout the property, a booster seat, a baby monitor and a glider chair.

Seasonal rentals (4 months or more) are available.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live in Los Angeles and escape to our vacation home in Palm Springs whenever we can. We named our home after our dog Marcel whose Andy Warhol style portrait hangs in the living room. We purchased the property in 2012, and we are now making it available for rental on a part-time basis.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Springs, CA, USA:
We love our neighborhood because it is just minutes away from the fabulous shops and restaurants in the Uptown Design District on the north end of Palm Canyon Drive.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our expansive and completely private yard has many places to relax and have fun, from the covered dining gazebo, to the shady hammock, to the solar-heated pool or sunny poolside deck.
