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.

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.

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.

We loved the house. It was the first time we stayed with VRBO, anditwas much nicer than a condo. The pool was great for our grand daughter who doesn't walk. She was in it for hours. The view of the mountains just added to the house. It was perfect. Ann

Great House, Great Location, Excellent Host The PS Retro House is exactly as advertised. Scott Fields was a great host and was always available to help us with anything we needed; fortunately everything was fine so we didn't need him after the initial meeting and walk through. One thing to note; the flooring is a pebble type inlay that really looks great but we found it to be a bit rough on bare feet. Other than that the inside of the house is great. The outside may be even better - the pool and hot tub were warmed up for us and the fire pit at night was good. I would highly recommend this property.

Better than any Hotel We stayed here for 6 nights for a work project. Three of us stayed in this house and we also used it as a meeting/gathering spot for the rest of our team. This house is so well laid out for groups. We cooked breakfast every morning for a group of 12 and it was incredibly well equipped. We were also amazed at the range of small appliances available in orange;) The attention to detail is impressive! We loved our incredible thick soft towels and luxury bedding. Super fun decor and furniture. THANK you Scott for helping my trip run so smoothly!

A truly relaxing, beautiful vacation with all the amenities! My two sisters, dad, and I had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful home. We cooked meals, spent time around the pool, spent time in the evenings in the jacuzzi and around the outdoor fire pit. The house was clean, looked just like the photos, and we were well taken care of. We had a beautiful, relaxing stay and would DEFINITELY recommend this home.

Perfect Getaway House. We stayed at PS Retro over Thanksgiving 2016 and it was a perfect relaxing vacation house. The amenities are everything you could want - pool (which we had heated), spa, and a gas fire pit for cozy nights and s'mores. The house is well-appointed from hair dryers to a potato masher and almost anything else you could need in the kitchen. The bathrooms are a bit small but that's typical for a house of this period. Most of all it's beautifully furnished, well-maintained and clean - the photos are accurate. We were also very happy our dog could join us on vacation. I highly recommend PS Retro and would absolutely rent this property again!

PERFECT. In November 2015, we stayed for 3 weeks at the property on East Francis, and can truly say it was a home-away-from-home for us. The house is beautiful, very nicely appointed and more than comfortably furnished; the yard and pool are simply amazing. We have stayed at a number of homes in Palm Springs over the years, and never have we enjoyed such a well equipped kitchen. We cook gourmet dinners every night, and didnt have to buy a single kitchen gadget or utensil, right down to the storage containers for left overs, everything has been provided! So without hesitation we can highly recommend this home for your next vacation, and we look forward to returning there again!

Great location and wonderfully designed house with so many features! We stayed here for a girls getaway and it couldn't have been more perfect! We loved the location..it was a 10 minute drive to the airport, 5 minutes to restaurants and grocery stores! The kitchen had everything we needed! The living room couch was perfect for us all to hangout and chat. Everything was so well decorated and made it such a fun house to stay at! We absolutely loved the outdoor space...the pool and hot tub and dining area were great! We loved having a lounge chair for each of us and the bean bag floaties for the pool were a fun surprise! We ABSOLUTELY loved the sonas system, it was so fun and easy to use! We were so appreciative of Scott and his hospitality, he was always very responsive, helpful and made everything so easy which helped us enjoy are vacation that much more. Thank you so much!!!

This property is well maintained and features an outstanding pool for the lap swimmer as well as the pool float lover. The bean bag floats are heavenly! The kitchen is beautifully equipped with upscale appliances, cookware, dishes and bar ware. The indoor fireplace is wonderful for cool mornings with coffee, and the outdoor fire pit is nothing short of ginormous! The house is nicely decorated with PS colors- bright orange, turquoise and lime green. Totally fun for the desert locale. Ken is a gracious and helpful property manager, making check in/out easy and breezy.

Beautiful Home with all the amenities. We stayed at the house over Thanksgiving with another family and had a wonderful experience. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and had brand new appliances, so we had no problem preparing our turkey and stuffing. It was a little chilly, so we didn't get in the pool much, but the large fire pit was perfect for snuggling and enjoying the desert sunset. Maybe the most impressive thing was how few problems we had during our stay. From the Sonos surround sound speakers to the jacuzzi, every little detail of the house was ready to go and worked perfectly. On top of that, Scott made the booking, arrival, and departure incredibly easy. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anybody. Whether you want to bring the kids, dogs, or just have a romantic getaway for the weekend, this house is perfect.

We rent quite often in Palm Springs but hands down this was the best. The saltwater pool was so refreshing and didn't burn our eyes. Especially since we spent most of our days in it. The home and outdoor space was comfortable, spacious, well maintained and clean. There were three couples in our group and not once did we feel cramped. Living room is spacious and there is also a sitting area and two dining areas. We also had a dog which was thrilled to see the doggie door. Easy access for him to get to the yard. I'm the cook of the bunch and I found everything I needed to make our meals and some extras that I want to purchase for my home. Something else I want to purchase is the SONOS amazing!!! The location was convenient and close to shopping ad restaurants. Will definitely rent here again for another fun and relaxing weekend in Palm Springs!

We enjoyed our visit so much! My husband and I loved staying in this amazing house. It was fully equipped and decorated with uplifting, bright colors. The backyard has a beautiful swimming pool and jacuzzi and was landscaped perfectly. The home is located very close to downtown, so we were able to enjoy some time on the town as well. Scott, the property manager, was extremely helpful. We look forward to returning to this home for another vacation!

This house epitomizes the mid century palm springs experience. Walking through the doors feels like you're going back in time. The house has been renovated down to the orange solo cups yet retains modern luxuries. Our favorite was controlling the house sound system with the sonos phone app. And the bean bag rafts for the pool! The property manager made us feel like we had a personal travel assistant. Only downside of the trip was the short duration. Next time we are staying longer!

We just returned from a lovely few days break at this wonderful house! Myself, husband, two children (9 and 11) and golden retriever stayed there for 3 nights. The plan was to have a leisurely time - lounge by the pool during the day, eat well, sleep well and generally chill.happy to report we successfully achieved all of these!! The house is beautifully decorated and extremely well stockedwe did not miss any item we needed in the kitchen for example. I loved the thought and attention put into the house design and it really is exactly how it looks in the pictures. LOVED the Sonos system (its on the Christmas list now :)) The pool area is spectacular and the pool itself surprising cool (even in the 106 degrees temperature during our stay). As it was so warm we did not use the fire pit or spa tub but plan to on our next visit.

We needed a few days to reboot and experience a little change of pace. The property was brand new, perfectly appointed, and expertly managed by Scott - who was super accommodating and responsive from initial point of contact all the way through check-out. The interior was recently remodeled and successfully captured the mid-century vibe. Awesome bedding, awesome sonos throughout the house. Really good flow to the space with plenty of light. Close to everything - but didn't have any reason to leave. Kitchen had all we could want and we rocked the BBQ at least twice a day. The space out back had it all - a huge yard, awesome pool with killer views of the mountains, hot tub w color changing LEDs (!), and a gas firepit we will make use of when we visit in cooler weather... A real pleasure - already looking forward to our next visit!

We were looking for a place to spend a week in Palm Springs and after careful consideration we chose this house. We were not disappointed at all. The home looks exactly as it is presented to you in the pictures. We are a small family of three and the house provided us with ample room. The family room is comfortable and has a great flat screen with cable. The kitchen is very well stocked, maybe even better than mine, oh no. Scott was very personable and willing to help us if we needed anything. Our little dog Thor loved the house too! Lots of space in the backyard for him to explore. I am saving the best part for last. The pool was absolutely fabulous, we spent a ton of time in it. The Sonos system was also a total bonus. Maybe not, the husband wants one now. The towels and beds were also very comfortable. I was sincerely ready to move in by the end. Can't praise the house enough. We will definitely consider coming back as soon as we can. Recommended for: Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, G

First vacation we have had in 5 years...and boy did we pick the right place!!! The home couldn't be more beautiful or comfortable. We had sun and rain during our visit so we tried to use every amenity...pool is huge and we recommend using the bean bag floats...so cool...bbq'd burgers, used the hot tub, and the fireplace is gorgeous. So many super cool little features...if you love mid mods you will love this place. We can not wait to come back...personally wouldn't recommend for families with kids...however we brought our Pom and he loved it! Scott is an awesome host...the only negative was that the master shower didn't work for us...that was kind of a bummer having to use the guest shower for 3 days...but wouldn't deter us from booking again.
