The City Of Palm Springs ID# 1542

This 1959 Butterfly Alexander, in Racquet Club Estates, was designed by renowned architect William Krisel and has been obsessively restored to it's original vision of space age optimism. The artist, Nat Reed, brings the same bright palette and sense of fun to the decor that is on display in his retro modern inspired art. Nostalgically themed bedrooms tickle your imagination. Sweeping clerestories and a wall of south facing glass bring the outside in, flooding the house with sunlight and warmth. From your own quarter acre lot enjoy the meditative view of the San Jacinto Mountains, while lounging by the kidney shaped pool. Nap in the hammock under the quiet shade of an olive tree. Wash away your stress in the refreshing outdoor shower (hot and cold) in the completely private backyard. On cool evenings, gather around the flickering firebowl for a nightcap. A mile from downtown and two short blocks from the historic Riviera hotel. Make your mid-century immersion complete at Googie Ranch.

                                                                  Nice place but a few considerations

                                                                  Mark C.

                                                                  The Pros: The hiuse is very clean, decorated with owners artwork, quiet neighborhood, super close to downtown.

                                                                  Cons: We wish pool heating was available because the water was way too cold. One of the main reasons we rents the house was to be able to swim. Also, the mid-century furniture, although cool looking, is very uncomfortable. Lastly, many VRBO properties provide minor amenities of bath soap and shampoo. It would be nice for this to have been provided.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I must say I am a bit taken by the comment that pool heating was not available. It is in our advertising (optional pool heating), offered in the initial contact and mentioned again in our rental agreement. We were never contacted during your stay about heating the pool either. We do offer pool heating.

                                                                  I will agree that the furniture is not plush, down furniture but it is authentic furniture from the 50s and is a large part of the atmosphere and charm of the house.

                                                                  Amazing! Our own private paradise!!!

                                                                  Sherri S.

                                                                  We just loved this house. Decor was spot-on mid-century modern. Location was great for exploring Palm Springs. And the yard -- really we felt like we had our own private luxury resort. Love love love. Can't wait to come back!

                                                                  Loved our stay!!!

                                                                  Myra B.

                                                                  Our entire experience was great. The furnishings and artwork are so on point and comfortable feeling as opposed to the industrial-ish side of mid-century modernism. We spent the majority of our time in the pool and enjoying the mountain view even though there were crazy 45 mph winds the first two days. Its definitely worth it to pay the extra $ and have pool heated so you can enjoy it all day and into the eve. Only side note is.....although the house is well equipped with pots n pans, dishes, pool towels, etc, there are no baggies, foil, straws, chip clips or rubber bands to close or save leftovers. Just a side note to remember to bring your own as I forgot! Luckily we had someone coming the following day and they grabbed these items so we didn't have to purchase. We thoroughly enjoyed this little gem!!

                                                                  I loved this place, beds were comfy and the artwork is beautiful!

                                                                  Armida C.

                                                                  Very nice home! Love the decor and set up, inside and out! Beds are comfy!

                                                                  Great deal for the price

                                                                  Samantha E.

                                                                  Overall our stay was good. We had a few hiccups along the way but the management team was awesome and address all of the concerns immediately. The house is decorated super cute, if you love mid century decor,this is your place. Brand new barbecue, house has pool floats, the backyard offered some shade under the trees which was nice on a hot weekend. The one thing to note is the bedrooms have windows without coverings, so the rooms are very bright early in the morning. If you're a morning person this won't be an issue.

                                                                  Very fun vibe and had all the amenities needed and offered.
