**PLEASE READ REGARDING CO-VID 19** In an effort to keep travelers and our workers safe, we are following recommendations to keep our homes vacant for at least 48 hours between guest stays. This will ensure roughly 24 hours of vacancy prior to housekeeping working and roughly 24 hours of vacancy post clean. When considering this home, please DO NOT automatically book. Rather, send us an inquiry and allow us to authorize or ensure the dates will work before booking. We thank you, in advance, for your patience and understanding. To further accommodate the appropriate time between reservations, early arrivals will be limited and there will be no late check-outs.
 
After Labor Day, we will reduce to 24 hours between guest stays.

Following guidance from health organizations, some guest amenities will be modified per safety recommendations. I.E.: extra spices in the kitchen will limited, extra or decorative pillows and blankets will be removed, Modest changes but in favor of caution and guest safety. We have also invested in and are using an OSHA/EPA-approved, hospital-grade disinfectant on hard surfaces and high-touch areas throughout each home.


This modern Mid-Century Alexander Butterfly home was featured in "CA Modern Magazine" and 2012 Modernism Week tours. Renovated inside and out, this stunning 1960 Alexander butterfly-roof home pays homage to the past while looking to the future. This architecturally important home perfectly blends the mid-century aesthetic with updated amenities including all the modern comforts and conveniences available to deliver the very best of both worlds! Developed by an award winning designer, the home provides seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces. It's the perfect retreat to enjoy the Palm Springs lifestyle with friends or family.

The light, bright open living area flows into the patio and pool area creating a sense of openness not often found in similar mid-century homes. A complete outdoor kitchen, lounge and dining area expand your living area, almost doubling the usable living space. Relax in the spa, gather round the fire pit in the evening or take a swim in the refreshing pool (pool heat is an optional/additional charge. See house rules for additional information) with waterfall features. Private outdoor lounge areas off each bedroom give you a private area to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an intimate moment to curl up with a book or that special someone.

As you enter thru the private and gated courtyard you are struck by the sense of openness and light. From the marble floors, floor to ceiling windows, the Wenge/Stainless/Caeserstone kitchen, or the large open living area with fireplace and super-slim 52-inch LED TV with surround-sound stereo, you feel like you've walked into a high-end boutique hotel. The open concept living area allows you to accommodate a crowd and not feel cramped. The whole house WIFI, HDTV with Blu-ray/DVD players and iPod/iPhone charging and docking stations in every bedroom allow you to enjoy all your favorite toys!

Push back the 14-foot sliding glass wall to create the classic Palm Springs indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Enjoy dinner or cocktails under the covered outdoor lounge and dining area. Misters in the summer and heaters in the winter make the outdoors enjoyable all day, every day and give you over 1,800 sq. ft. of usable living space year round. The granite and stainless outdoor kitchen with sink, fridge and gas grill make dinners or entertaining a breeze! The outdoor shower and bathroom provide an extra level of luxury and convenience.

Each bedroom is designed for comfort and privacy with its own private outdoor lounge area. Curl up in the 100% cotton sheets, plug in your iPod for some tunes or watch TV. Or, step outside to read a book in your outdoor lounge. There are queen sized beds in the master and second bedrooms and two twins in the third bedroom. Extra blankets and pillows are in the closet if you need them! Washer and dryer are conveniently located in the garage for longer stays or unexpected messes.

The newly renovated bathrooms provide a spa-like experience. Relax in the expanded master bath walk-in shower complete with body jets and rain shower head or take a soak in the tub. Fully tiled from floor to ceiling with beautiful brushed nickel Grohe fixtures, this bathroom sparkles with luxury. The guest bathroom features a large walk-in shower with custom mosaic and floor to ceiling tile that finishes off the look. Clean, contemporary and modern.

Located in historic Racquet Club Estates, the birthplace of the Alexander mid-century aesthetic, you're just minutes from downtown, the airport and restaurants.

Wonderful Escape. What a beautiful home, with the most incredible outdoor space. I would highly recommend this property to others and would stay again myself. Scott and the other property manager were attentive and helpful throughout the booking and during our stay! My only request would be softer pillows ;)

Wonderful Property. We had a great time at this property. It is in a great location in a nice quiet neighborhood and convenient to downtown. Wonderful outdoor area where we grilled and ate each evening. A huge pool and great set-up. Everything from check-in to check-out was easy and Scott was great with it. We would definitely recommend this and would come back to this property. Thanks for everything.

Great spot in Palm Springs. We had a great time at "The Butterfly House". It was well laid out, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. The pool was the highlight of our experience, and it was heated to the perfect temperature to accommodate swimming at any time of the day or night. Beds were comfortable with great linens, baths were lovely and another bonus was the outdoor shower. Scott was a terrific host. We are planning another visit next spring!

Amazing, relaxing and fabulous. I can't say enough about the property or about Scott and Craig. From start, booking, to finish, checking out, was all made so simple and easy. The house was exactly as pictured and the yard was absolutely amazing, as a matter of fact, so amazing, we spent most of our time out there. The pool was perfectly heated and the outside kitchen and eating area was perfect for entertaining. The house was stocked with absolutely everything you need with the exception of food and beverages and it was so nice to be able to just arrive and not worry about a single thing. We were shown around and given instructions on how every single thing in the house worked and had zero problems our entire stay. We will for sure be coming back for years to come and checking out more of the fabulous properties offered by this group. Thank you for a wonderful getaway and we look forward to coming back again soon.

Great time. Great house. This iconic Palm Springs home with an amazing backyard helped make our recent trip fantastic. The home is just as pictured - clean, inviting, comfortable, and conducive to relaxation. The arrangements were simple to make and Scott was so helpful before and during our stay. But, that backyard was the best - heaters for winter, spa, pool, comfortable furniture, outdoor kitchen and bathroom, and the TV. One couldn't ask for more from the backyard. Definitely recommend!

Our week long stay at the PS Butterfly was nothing less than wonderful. Scott was prompt at meeting us at the property once we arrived in the Palm Springs area and gave us a thorough walk through. Everything was as shown in the pictures. We were a family of 4 including a nine year old child, so the heated pool and spa are useful although our nights were still a bit chilly there to be able to enjoy eating dinner outside. There were outside heaters so it is still an option and our nights happened to be a bit unseasonable cold that week. The beds are comfortable and we had one minor inconvenience with the guest shower that was promptly fixed. The property is a 5 minute drive to downtown and food stores. It is also only about 45 minutes to Joshua Tree National Park and an easy drive from LAX or a bit further from San Diego. Understand that the sound ordinance in Palm Springs is quite strict and enforced quiet from 9 PM-9AM, but that suited us perfectly.

Loved The Butterfly House. Three friends and I enjoyed a lovely three night stay at the Butterfly House. This beautifully renovated home is a perfect example of Mid-century Modernism brought up-to-date with contemporary amenities. The kitchen was an easy and lovely place to prepare meals. The fireplace offered a cozy center in the living room. The landscaping is lush and sophisticated surrounding an elegant pool and hot tub. Outdoor kitchen and dining area is lovely, but it was too chilly during our visit for us to enjoy. Scott and Craig provided great and enthusiastic service. All Palm Springs has to offer is minutes away.

Our Fall vacation in PS! From the moment we arrived, Scott, the property manager was right there. Scott took us on a complete tour of the property and made sure we knew how everything worked, where the supplies were located etc. Scott helped with locations of the closest grocery store, restaurant recommendations, etc. (try La Mirasol you will not be disappointed.). The home far exceeded our expectations. From the meticulously kept pool and Jacuzzi, the gas fire pit, the outdoor patio and dining area and beautifully landscaped front and backyards. Not to mention the giant sliding glasses doors that open out onto the backyard. Bed linens were exceptional, a beyond fully stocked kitchen with enough kitchenware to prepare any meal you wished. There is also a private restroom outside so no need to go into the house when you are using the pool. There is also an outdoor shower and the backyard is so private that I never once showered indoors, I used the outdoor shower the entire week.

love Palm Springs and usually stay at a hotel or with friends. But decided to rent a house this time. This home looked great in the pictures but its even more impressive in person. What wonderful relaxing surprise. This home is very private and I loved the open living floorplan and how the doors open everything up leading out to the pool, jacuzzi and outdoor living, dining and kitchen areas. The outdoor gas fireplace was an added bonus, but the real hidden secret on this property is the outdoor shower. What a treat! Everything was tastefully done yet super comfortable. The bedrooms and bathroom were beautiful and each bedroom even had its own outdoor patio area. The kitchen was beautiful and open to the living area so that we could talk and get food ready at the same time. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and more was carefully planned for. The property manager Scott had thought of everything I could possibly need, from laundry detergent to spices for cooking.

We stayed here for four nights, and could have stayed forever. The house met and exceeded all our expectations! Included in the Welcome Booklet was a lot of information on the history of this Butterfly house, which made staying there all the more special. We'd walk the neighborhood and feel part of its history! The accommodations simplified life greatly - the indoor kitchen was open and bright, and kept the cooks and crew in close touch. There was also a "magic window" (traveling with 2-year olds) from the kitchen to the covered patio, from which breakfast appeared every morning! The outdoor kitchen got lots of use too. The varieties of open spaces both inside and out never felt crowded, but always in touch with those you'd come to vacation with. The pool was a perfect temp morning and night, with the hot tub always ready. The fire pit offered warmth after dark. Two grassy areas in the back yard meant lawn games, with plenty of poolside lounging and shade for respite.

The design, attention to detail, and amenities are incomparable to any other house I've rented in Palm Springs. The pictures of the property are spot on. Everything is spotless. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. The outdoor area is very well maintained and landscaped beautifully. We spent most of our time by the pool and used the outdoor kitchen and entertaining area extensively. Most of us even took advantage of the outdoor shower and lav which maximized our time outside. We stayed their with my dog who had a blast swimming all day, but took a few breaks to lounge with us on the outdoor chaise lounges. Scott is an excellent property manager. He made sure we were well taken care of, but was completely unobtrusive. I'm already looking forward to my next stay. The only negative thing I could mention is the low pressure in one of the indoor showers, but this was a minor inconvenience hardly worth noting. Everything else more than made up for this.

This house provides all the amenities you will require for a relaxing holiday in the sunshine of Palm Springs. This was the 2nd year of renting in Palm Springs and looked for a house with some additional features which we felt would be very welcome for this kind of holiday. The use of a garage was very valuable in the summer heat and allowed the car to be kept cool and ready for use. The outside kitchen & bathroom meant no endless trips inside the house from the pool. The pool was very large and unusually deep. The property manager Scott was very attentive and always easy to contact, he was very accommodating when it came to check in and check out. I would highly recommend this property and would book this house again for future visits.

This house is incredible. The design is so clean and modern and absolutely gorgeous, I wanted to stay forever. Most rental houses feel as if they've been furnished with someone's garage sale cast offs, every item in THIS house feels especially chosen and perfect. Anything you need is right there, its well stocked so you can walk right in and start living rather than having to tediously schlep your own stuff. The privacy and understated glamour of the home infuses everything you do with a sense of peaceful relaxation and freedom. I never wanted to leave! At one point I was lounging in the hot tub under the stars while someone fed me bites of handmade coconut ice cream. A perfect moment in time - the beautiful grounds and pool and house embracing us with luxury and comfort. Worth every penny and then some. Well managed, excellent un-intrusive support.
