Entering the light-filled home, you'll notice the modern cook's kitchen opens to the living room and the dining area. The well-stocked kitchen with a separate beverage fridge is ideal for entertaining and no one misses the action whether they are curled on the couch, snacking at the bar, setting the table for dinner or preparing appetizers. The dining table offers seating for 6-8 guests and daytime snacks for the family are convenient with the island counter seating for four. Stream and binge your guilty-pleasure TV shows on the large smart TV or, on chilly winter nights, light the gas fireplace and watch a romantic comedy.
The bedrooms are all on the East side the house as is typical in this iconic mid-century floor plan. The first guest room, guest room #1 (on the front of the house) features a king bed, writing desk, sliders to a side patio and a smart TV. Just next door, guest room #2 features sliders to the same shared side patio, a queen bed and smart TV. These two guest rooms will share the hallway guest bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The master bedroom, at the end of the hallway features a king bed, smart TV, a wall of glass and sliders for yard and pool access. The en-suite master bathroom has a walk-in shower. All the bedrooms have smart speakers.
Outside, you'll enjoy a generous back yard. Different areas provide multiple opportunities for relaxation and entertaining. The side patio for the guest rooms wrap around to the back yard with outdoor dining, fire pit and continues on to the pool and hot tub. A charming, covered, counter bar makes for daytime or sunset snacks poolside. When in season, take advantage of a full suite of 5 citrus trees for cooking and cocktails: lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit trees can be found on the property.
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: there is no music outside, at all, at any time of day. People noise at a reasonable level is certainly allowed during the day. You should enjoy the pool and your friends/family. However, audible people noise must cease by 10 PM. 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.
Guest count is limited by the city to 6 overnight guests. Parking is limited to 3 cars, maximum.

The Lemon Drop was perfect!
We have stayed in lots of vacation rentals,but the lemon drop is by far my favorite. The house has everything you need, backyard was perfect easy to use pool and hot tub, great grilling area lots of seating and fully loaded kitchen. The owners have thought of everything. Very clean and true to the description. Also neighborhood was nicely located to downtown PS and groceries nearby. The property manager was very welcoming he covered all questions, did a walkthrough to point out features! We would highly recommend to friends and hope to be back!- Anonymous from Marco island, Posted: 11/14/2023
Great back yard
This place has a great back yard with a lovely pool area. Perfect if you are looking for a relaxing vacation in the sun. And there is plenty of comfortable room inside for when you need to get out of the sun.- Anonymous from West Vancouver, Posted: 10/28/2023
The house is very clean and well kept. The decor fits the mid-century modern house very well. The beds are very comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor area with the pool and the firepit. Close to downtown in a very quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay there again.- Daniel S , Posted: 10/26/2023
We had a great time staying here in August with family and friends! The pool was lovely and we spent most of our time lounging in it.- Danali S , Posted: 9/21/2023
Perfect Desert Getaway!
Perfect house for the perfect Palm Springs Getaway! We loved it so much that we just booked this house again for this coming long holiday weekend! Amazing pool, yard, architecture, decore--couldn't ask for more! We have rented alot of houses in Palm Springs since we live close by in San Diego, but this one may be the best--the quality and the level of detail is impressive. Highly recommend this house for your vacation.- Anonymous from San Marcos, Posted: 8/31/2023
Top of the list!
A Mid-Century Gem (Top 5% of all AirBnBs) It's been such a gray winter in San Diego, we just couldn't take it any more, so we headed to Palm Springs for some sun and fun. We had a GREAT stay at "LemonDrop", one of the many iconic mid-century Alexander homes in the Racquet Club. I've stayed at several in the past, but this one is my favorite. All the space is well used. The decor is the perfect mix of mid century modern furnishing and PS kitch. Awesome vintage movie posters and prints but nice furnishings too! Tons of nice details for example, plugs and USB ports in the nightstands. The living area is bright and open, with a modern cook's kitchen that's great for cocktails (they have a really cool vintage cocktail cart too) and conversation with the chef. And if you like to cook, unlike so many I've rented, this Kitchen is actually equipped for cooking (by some who likes to cook). There was even a fully stocked spice drawer with spices that had not expired! Plenty of good pots, pans, good knives and all the cooking/baking equipment you might want. They have a decent coffee grinder, a good blender, a toaster oven and a pop up toaster, etc. The outdoor spaces are exceptional, really nice landscaping for the day and awesome lights at night. There is a large pool and fantastic hot tub, chaise lounges with umbrellas, outdoor kitchen with shaded dining table, multiple seating areas and a huge gas fire pit (so nice at night you want to light it, even when it's not really needed). It has all the luxuries of a nice hotel, but the space and privacy of a house. It is impeccably clean and well maintained, one of the best AirBnBs I'vew stayed in. I will 100% stay here again anytime it's available and I'm coming to PS. Great blend of comfort, style, and amenities. What's wrong with it? Nothing is "wrong", it's great. I will note that there are TVs with rokus in every room, but that are a bit smaller than I have at home, and there are bluetooth speakers in every room, but they are a bit small. If you care about music, bring your own bluetooth speaker. If it is available, book it quickly, it really is better than the others. Original Posting: 5.31.23- Jonathan , Posted: 8/5/2023
Recently renovated mid century modern house in quiet neighborhood. Very nicely decorated and furnished. Beautiful landscaping and pool/hot tub area. We also own a mid century modern home in NY and love the style. Original Posting: 4.21.23- Dianne , Posted: 8/5/2023
Great house! The house was well appointed, clean and close to everything. We ended up spending most of our time out by the pool just relaxing, this house is great for that! We would love to come back! Original Posting: 12.7.22- Kylee , Posted: 8/5/2023
We've stayed at multiple properties over 6 years and this was the best. It was clean, very well stocked and the staff was super professional and communicative. This will become our summer yearly location. Original Posting: 7.22.22- Rick , Posted: 8/5/2023
