Sunken beneath street level and surrounded by a high hedge, this gated home is a mini-estate: hidden from view and offering a full-size tennis court, a gorgeous raised saltwater pool and spa deck and casual outdoor lounging and dining spaces. The tennis court and raised pool deck encompasses the North side of the property. The main house holds two en-suite bedrooms plus an additional guest bathroom, a well-appointed kitchen, and an open living and dining area. The separate en-suite casita next to the main house is perfect for those members of your party with kids, or those who desire additional privacy.
As you drive through the front gates and down the driveway, the property opens up to your left as you pass the glass walls of the raised pool deck - a signature of Albert Frey's work. Walking under the covered BBQ/ cantilevered carport area, the first set of sliders on your right lead into the casita.
The guest casita has its own bathroom with step-in shower, a separate lounging room with mini fridge and cabinets, and a large bedroom with a King-size bed, 4K UHD Smart TV with YouTube TV live television, and a full array of your favorite streaming apps. The casita living room and bedroom both look out to views of the tennis court and pool. The casita living room offers a sleeper sofa opening to a queen bed. We'll be happy to supply you sheets with advance notice.
As you walk past the casita, you reach the double Fleetwood sliders that open to the main house's living and dining area. The main house invites you with its open layout and stylishly appointed modern furnishings that complement the home's mid-century origins. The marble indoor dining table seats up to six with direct views to the court and pool. The well-appointed kitchen features a breakfast bar with seating for three more, stainless appliances, and beautiful cabinetry. The living room has plenty of seating, a gas fireplace, bar cabinet, and a large 4K OLED UHD Smart TV with YouTube TV live television, and a full array of your favorite streaming apps and a Sonos sound bar.
Off the living area to the East side of the home, the main master bedroom has sliders leading out to its own private breeze-block wrapped patio. The bedroom offers a King-sized bed, large en-suite bath with step-in shower, and another 4K UHD Smart TV with YouTube TV live television, Sonos sound bar and your favorite streaming apps.
Off the living area to the West side of the home, you will walk down a hallway where you will find the home's washer and dryer, linen closets and additional full guest bathroom, before you arrive at the second master bedroom. This en-suite bedroom offers a King size bed, a desk and another 4K UHD Smart TV, and a full array of your favorite streaming apps. This guest room boasts its own separate entrance through another Fleetwood slider with commanding views of the tennis court.

Fun and Relaxing Palm Springs Pride Weekend
The vacation home was excellent. The space was sprawling, the rooms were all comfy, the bathrooms were beautiful, and the kitchen had everything my group needed. The pool and the tennis court were a lot of fun and were definitely use. The location was close to downtown and was a good space to help my friends and I celebrate Palm Springs Pride weekend. I would definitely come back and stay at this home.- Anonymous from Irvine, Posted: 11/28/2023
This stunner of a house was magnificent. The design of the house and the interesting layout of the pool and tennis court were just cherries on top of a cool sundae. The rooms were all comfortable and the place just felt so much like home. Parking was ample, and the location was just peaceful enough but still close enough to get to the downtown Palm Springs area. I would definitely love to stay here again. And our checkin was so easy and so friendly, thanks so much to Brad!- Michael F from Downey, CA, Posted: 11/20/2023
The Hidden Frey is the perfect spot to relax, play tennis and swim in your own private Palm Springs resort. Great privacy from neighbors with perfect landscaping. The bedrooms are large and the bathrooms are clean; very functional with all necessary accessories included. Rob was the perfect property manager, available with timely communication- but we did not need anything because the place was in pristine condition both indoors and out. Pool and hot tub were heated perfectly (and heated quickly) and the tennis court was spotless. You will love this home - we can't wait to return.

Wonderful Family Vacation
We had a wonderful family vacation at the mini Frey estate. The pool and tennis court are perfect and the kitchen was the best stocked one we have ever had in the Palm Springs area. The staff at Relax Palm Springs were very helpful, prompt with responses and extremely professional to work with. We would stay here again without hesitation and hope to return soon.

Unique and Beautiful
What a unique and beautiful place! Appreciating the Frey architecture, we enjoyed the entire space outdoors, which felt like a resort - huge tennis court, beautiful pool area, private as can be. We felt lucky to be there. Beautifully furnished inside, from the art and furniture to the wonderfully stocked kitchen - full of Deco style! Management was fantastic and we will definitely be back!

Hidden Frey is great
If you are looking for a great property with excellent amenities, Hidden Frey is a great spot for you. The property is perfect for a couple or 1- 2 other couples as the 3 bedrooms are large with en-suite bathrooms. Each has plenty of privacy. The house has all the things you need for an excellent stay - great kitchen, pool, hot tub, tennis court, big TVs, washer/dryer- to name a few. Its also in a quiet neighborhood. Hidden Frey is about 2 miles from Downtown PS with grocery stores / convenience stores close by. Downtown is a quick 5 min drive. One thing to note - Being on the north side of the town, it can get a bit windy. While not a major issue for us, if you have concerns or sensitivities to wind this may not be the best propriety (or others on the north side of town). Otherwise, you will love the wind on hot desert days! We would definitely recommend the property and stay again! Original Posting Date: 05.27.22- Adam , Posted: 8/8/2023
Luxury of Modern Amenities
STARS: 5 OUT OF 5 If you like mid-century architecture with the luxury of modern amenities, this house is for you. Outside, theres a fab pool, hot tub, fire pit, tennis court with an art mural, and private seating area. Inside, theres a highly functional and beautiful kitchen, a fireplace, big bedrooms and bathrooms, and of course a fantastic living area. Very private house but a quick Lyft ride into town. I will definitely stay here again. Original Posting Date: 12.13.19- Margo , Posted: 8/8/2023
Very unique property
5 out of 5 Stars Awesome, very unique property! Enjoyed the beautiful house, pool and hot tub, outdoor fire pit and grill. Excellent amenities. Very clean, comfortable and also private. Look forward to staying again! Original Posting Date: 11.27.19- Evan , Posted: 8/8/2023
Five out of Five
5 stars out of 5. I stayed here with some girlfriends, and we had the most relaxing and enjoyable getaway! We loved sipping coffee around the fire pit in the mornings, drinking margaritas by the pool in the afternoon, and mixing up with a few games of tennis whenever the inclination hit. The kitchen is remarkably well-appointed, with all the cooking and baking tools you could want. The beds are very comfortable, and the property is quiet. We found it plenty accessible to downtown with just a quick Uber ride, but really, I barely wanted to leave this lovely retreat. I will definitely be booking again for our next visit to Palm Springs!

Cozy and Comfortable
Cozy but comfortable home with tennis court that is in great shape. The pool was kept warm in March which made it nice for an early morning or late night swim. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit in the evenings after dinner. Highly recommend. Original Posting Date: 04.22.19- Marc , Posted: 8/8/2023
Tennis Players Dream
This property is nearly perfect! Everything as described. Three tennis playing couples shared this property. The tennis court was kept in pristine condition and we used it daily. The pool was lovely. The most amazing part of this property was the kitchen. We are all cooks and had some concerns about the size from the pictures. Not only is this a very functional kitchen, but fully appointed! Completely stocked with everything that could possibly be needed. Beds were very comfortable (important to us). Management was excellent and responsive. We wish we could rent it every year when we come to the BNP Paribas Tennis tournament, but this review will let the secret out! Absolutely a wonderful property.

Amazing Property! My husband and I had a great week spent at the Hidden Frey home. Relaxing time by the pool and close enough to downtown Palm Springs and all it has to offer. We will defiantly be back! Original Posting Date: 02.25.19- Katy , Posted: 8/8/2023
Fantastic House and Property! We visited the Hidden Frey house with our large family of 6 adults and 2 children. The house was not only beautiful and perfect for a relaxing vacation, it was in a great location which was central to the downtown Palm Springs area. We spent most of the time at the house, enjoying the pool and tennis courts but also walked downtown for breakfast and shopping. The house was furnished beautifully, clean, had plenty of room for our large family, and everything we needed for our stay. This house felt like a resort and is a renter's dream!

Fabulous Home and Grounds! My family and I spend a long weekend here and none of us wanted to leave! This delightful residence is private and secluded yet only minutes from downtown Palm Springs and its dining, shopping and entertainment. Everyone loved playing in the fantastic pool and hot tub and practicing our skills on the tennis court. The views of the surrounding mountains and the desert night sky were breathtaking. The house itself, along with the ensuite baths and the kitchen were immaculate. The bed linens and towels looked like they had never been used. The kitchen was so well equipped that the most discriminating foodie will be delighted. The private outdoor sitting area right outside the master bedroom suite allowed us a place to take some time for quiet and solitude when we wanted it. If you are looking for the perfect base from which to explore Palm Springs and the surrounding area or just wish to spend some quality time in an elegant and enchanting environment, please consider this home. You will not be sorry! Original Message 10.31.18- Charlie , Posted: 8/8/2023
Palm Springs at it's BEST!
Palm Springs at its best! This home is exactly what it is said to be: A Frey home restored to its original beauty, with all the modern day amenities that make vacation the best. Artistically beautiful, as well as comfortable for a family of 4, this home is well stocked for a foodies cooking delight. Day activities included tennis, swimming for hours in the clean, clear pool and attached hot tub, nearby golf, and an easy walk into downtown. Evenings under the stars were enjoyed on the bedroom patios, in the hot tub, and in the pool. This is a beautiful, fun, and relaxing home and we anticipate renting it often when we crave a Palm Springs getaway. Original posting 10.30.18- Debbie , Posted: 8/8/2023
Private and Great Style
Privacy and stunning style at every detail! Totally blown away! From the minute we entered the property it makes you feel relaxed and at home. The property is essentially a compound - totally private - but in a great location close to downtown Palm Springs restaurants and shops. The immediate neighborhood was perfect for walking/stroller rides, and it was an easy walk/jog into town. Great coffee shop right around the corner, too! Inside, it's clear that every detail was tastefully done, and designed to inspire. Clean, beautiful modern furnishings, a fully stocked kitchen and high-end everything from the appliances, art, mattresses, Wi-Fi, Sonos system, etc. The beds are so comfortable! Our group was not hardcore tennis players, but having the private court and pool with mountain views in the backdrop is so much fun! Scott and the RelaxPS management team were great to deal with and very attentive. Everyone loved this place; we will be back for years to come - thank you!!
