Description

Welcome to the home we're calling "PS SplashPad": the grooviest home to hit the local surf! Originally the desert retreat of screen star Sandra Dee (Gidget, Imitation of Life) and music legend Bobby Darin (Splish Splash, Mack the Knife), this original Alexander-built home is a classic Mid-Century. Recently and lovingly renovated by West-coast, mid-century enthusiasts who wanted to honor Mid-Century Modern standards, and who commisioned nationally-published interior designer and local favorite, Christopher Kennedy for a quintessential interior aesthetic, this home is the perfect backdrop for a flashback trip to Palm Springs with all the modern conveniences. The colorful redesign captures the essence of the home’s heyday in feel, color and texture, punctuated with memorabilia and reminders of its Hollywood pedigree.

With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,225 square feet of tastefully-appointed interior living space, this is a hip home with big plans for outdoor entertaining. The South-facing side yard offers a master suite patio, outdoor shower and sweet hammock for lazy naps and relaxation. The large West-facing backyard offers walled privacy and fantastic views of Mt. San Jacinto. Enjoy swimming laps or just floating in the large 15 x 30 saltwater pool (pool heat is an optional/additional charge. See house rules for additional information) or taking a dip in the generous above ground spa. Take time to sip a glass of wine and catch up with friends over the gas fire pit or play a round of bocci ball in the newly installed court. The backyard has been meticulously landscaped with the perfect mix of grassy turf and desert landscaping - all beautifully lit for those twilight-into-night cocktail parties or quiet, starlit al fresco dinners.

Walk through the custom metal gates and matching breeze block to enter PS Splashpad’s courtyard entrance. The rear yard is immediately accessible and the double enclosed garage opens across from the home’s entrance. Sandra Dee in her Coppertone best is ready to greet you inside! The open floor plan allows for easy living between kitchen and casual dining and living areas. The stainless steel kitchen enjoys a sink/dishwasher island and is as been well-stocked with pots, pans, baking dishes, appliances and more.

A glass-backed wet bar and wine refrigerator is nestled beside the casual dining table that seats 6 with direct views of the pool and mountains. The living room is bright and cozy with a retro L-shaped couch that sits 6-8 comfortably. More poolside views or enjoy your favorite Golden Age movie from the high definition flatscreen TV. The home enjoys a Sonos sound system throughout, standard cable, and hi-speed internet (with 50mb down) that can easily support all your devices.

The sleeping quarters include two guest rooms (one queen and one with two twin beds) and a Master Suite with glass sliders to its own patio and side yard exit. The bedrooms are bright with East and South facing views and enjoy flatscreen TVs.

This beautiful vacation rental is a short drive to downtown Palm Springs with its many bars, shops, restaurants, and art galleries and even closer to the boutique shops and restaurants of the Uptown Design District. Other Palm Springs attractions are similarly a short drive away - from area casinos to world renowned spa resorts, tennis, golfing, museums 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.

Excellent Home with Cool History Looks great in photos, but is much better in person. The owner was so helpful and gave a quick run-down of the home amenities and told us about some local spots for dining & hanging out. Once we grabbed what we needed from a local market though, we barely left until we had to check out. The pool and hot tub were perfect - tons of space to sunbathe, or escape the heat under the shady trees or umbrellas. The rooms and decor are beautiful & comfortable and compliment this historic home that once belonged to legends Bobby Darin & Sandra Dee. Will definitely book this place again.

This home felt like home the minute we arrived. There is no other way to describe it. Every time we left, I couldn't wait to get back... The photos are exactly what you experience. I actually think it's better in person! It was clean and ready to go for us. I will never stay in a hotel again, ever. Quick drive to Albertson's, and all amenities, restaurants, touristy things on Palm Canyon Drive. 7 minutes from the airport. Really close to the Palm Springs Tram Station, which you can see the tram climb San Jacinto Mtn at night from the back patio. The beds were really comfortable, great mid-century decor, layout perfect, kitchen was open to the dining area and living room. My daughter still talks about the couch! A wall of windows to see the backyard, which is my favorite part of the house... sitting in the hot tub, with the up-lit palms at night, watching the moon come up... it doesn't get any better! The kids enjoyed the pool, hammock and Bocce ball court area. The neighborhood has si

Great Vacation Location Enjoyed 2 weeks at this beautiful property, loving the many features of the house and the yard. We especially loved the salt water pool and spent many hours in or lounging around it. The Sonos system was also a hit, allowing calming music in the room the baby slept in, while something livelier played in the living room. We loved the decor, and found everything we needed to enjoy our stay. A couple minor issues were quickly addressed with one phone call to Scott. We look forward to coming back to Palm Springs next year!

We had a wonderful time in Palm Springs. Scott and his crew were welcoming and very friendly. The property is pristine and homey. The pool is crisp, the internet is fast, and it's Palm Springs, so you can't go wrong. Bask in the hot and dry desert wonderland.

Our whole experience from the check-in process to the checkout process (which we were very sad to leave) was amazing. The pictures don't do the property justice. Everything you could think of is taken care of and provided to you... We loved the house... and can't wait to come back!

Stayed here with friends for a long weekend (6 people total). The place is so cute and it was definitely enough space for all of us to hang out together. I should note that it's more of a rental than a typical AirBnb (like staying at someone else's home while they're gone) - still really well-stocked and everything just thought some people might be interested to know. Great stay - definitely recommend!

Palm Springs Getaway Beautiful mid-century design with a back yard to die for. This property is beautifully decorated in beautiful bright colors. Kitchen is very easy to work in with every utensil needed for cooking. Wonderful music system that can be heard throughout the whole house. Very relaxing to sit on the patio with a glass of wine or play in the pool. There is also a hot tub, bocce ball court, fire pit and much more. Palm Springs has many fantastic restaurants, golfing, spas and many shopping facilities. I look forward to our next visit.

Fabulous Design and Super Comfortable What a great property. We just spent the weekend and it was so much fun! The property is well designed, well appointed; a great kitchen. Inside, it was colorful and tasteful. The Sonos was fun to play with and we all enjoyed plenty of space. Outside, the fire pit and hot tub were great. The patio is spacious for dining and the "party" lights in the evening were great. Easy to book, easy to enjoy; great management. Would highly recommend and can't wait to get back!

A relaxing retreat. The four of us had an absolutely wonderful weekend getaway at this amazing house. The house was well equipped with everything we needed to cook, mix cocktails, or snack by the pool. It was well organized and we felt at home immediately. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms were quiet, the towels were soft and fluffy and the little soaps and shampoos they provided were just perfect. At night, the lights around the pool made for a perfect atmosphere. And with 2 outdoor fire pits, there were so many options and little cozy nooks that suited any mood we in. We brought our dog and she had plenty of room to run around and lots of cool shady spots to snooze. The backyard with the bocce ball court was a dream and the salt water pool was refreshing. We look forward to staying again! We loved it!

A fabulous Palm Springs retreat. We had an absolutely fabulous time in this gorgeous mid-century home. Our goal was to enjoy a peaceful weekend in the desert, a retreat of sorts. This beautifully appointed home immediately put a smile on my face from the moment I walked in. It is impeccable and tastefully decorated with numerous fun reminders of its Bobby Darin/ Sandra Dee history. The house was so graciously stocked with waters, coffee, tea, wine and even some breakfast items so we could immediately relax and enjoy the home without the need to run to the market once we arrived. We eased into our mornings with the luxury of coffee and scones before going off to a day hike in the Santa Rosa mountains. On our returns back from day outings, we enjoyed lounging in the pool and the jacuzzi in the afternoon sun. We also dined at several of the restaurants our wonderful hostess had recommended which were fabulous! This home is truly a Palm Springs gem. I can't wait to go back!

To begin with the host was wonderful, we ran little late for check in but he was very kind and patient. He came over to greet us and showed us around the house and showed us how to work the sound system. Overall he was very fast at responding to my messages. Thank You
