Property description

Welcome to the home we're calling "PS Retro". It's a fun, comfortable and inviting home; perfect for the quintessential Palm Springs vacation getaway. Built in 1959, this is an original Alexander-built home featuring his iconic architectural aesthetic Palm Springs is known for.

You'll enter the home and immediately notice the unique pebble-tec flooring throughout the home. You'll find that every detail considered reflected a desire to suit the home's many guests: it's well appointed and equipped to suit every visitor. Featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a HUGE 34'x14' saltwater pool, above ground hot tub (perfectly positioned to maximize stunning mountain views), natural gas grill, outdoor dining, plenty of outdoor lounge seating around a large fire pit and SONOS sound system, every guest will feel welcome! Hi-speed internet is at top speed (with 50mb down) so it can easily support all your devices.

The living room offers comfortable seating that can easily allow 6-8 guests to watch their favorite TV program. The fireplace will only add more ambiance in the cooler winter months. A 60-inch Smart HDTV insures an excellent media experience.

The kitchen is perfect for the home-cook or hobby chef. There is a new 5-burner stove with a convection oven. The kitchen has been well-stocked with pots, pans, baking dishes, appliances and more. There's plenty of serving pieces to entertain the household and make make each meal, indoors or outside, special.

The dining room can comfortably seat 6-8 guests for dinner. You'll notice, too, that we haven't forgotten your pups. There's a doggy door to provide your dog ease in coming and going at his/her own leisure. It's a secure back yard.

There is a great mix of sleeping arrangements. The master bedroom features a king bed, a patio and an outdoor pool shower (cold water only). Guest room 1 features a queen bed and guest room 2 features two twins. With advance notice, the two twins can be put together to offer an additional king bed. There are TV's in each bedroom.

The lot is huge making for spectacular outdoor living. Off the dining room, there is the covered lanai. Seating for up to 8 guests and natural gas grill. No propane tanks to swap at this home. Chaises and umbrellas complete the the poolside lounging experience. Recline on the king-sized cabana bed for an afternoon nap or star gazing at night. A large four-foot fire pit is ideal for chilly evenings or romantic summer nights. Seating for 6-8 ensures everyone can enjoy the evening together.

This beautiful vacation rental is a short drive to downtown Palm Springs, with its many bars, shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Other Palm Springs attractions are similarly a short drive away, from area casinos and gambling, to world renowned spa resorts, tennis, golfing, and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.

Racquet Club Estates is a premier neighborhood of Palm Springs. The neighborhood is rich with architecture and history. It should be noted the city has sound ordinances that are strictly enforced. The owner(s) like to stress this home is ideal for a dream vacation and relaxation but is by no means a “party-central” home. Each guest is expected to be as good a neighbor as the owner(s) themselves. Special events like weddings are NOT allowed.
