Description

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.

You'll enter the home and immediately notice the unique pebble-tec flooring throughout the home.  You'll find that every detail considered reflected a desire to suit the home's many guests: it's well appointed and equipped to suit every visitor.    Featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a HUGE 34'x14' saltwater pool (pool heat is an optional/additional charge. See house rules for additional information), above ground hot tub (perfectly positioned to maximize stunning mountain views), natural gas grill, outdoor dining, plenty of outdoor lounge seating around a large fire pit and SONOS sound system, every guest will feel welcome!  Hi-speed internet is at top speed (with 50mb down) so it can easily support all your devices.

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.

The lot is huge making for spectacular outdoor living.  Off the dining room, there is the covered lanai.  Seating for up to 8 guests and natural gas grill.  No propane tanks to swap at this home.  Chaises and umbrellas complete the the poolside lounging experience.  Recline on the king-sized cabana bed for an afternoon nap or star gazing at night.  A large four-foot fire pit is ideal for chilly evenings or romantic summer nights.  Seating for 6-8 ensures everyone can enjoy the evening together. 

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. Each guest is expected to be as good a neighbor as the owner(s) themselves. Special events like weddings are NOT allowed.

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.

This home was perfect for our needs and we were provided all of the amenities that we could possibly need; down to the dog bowls and toys for our pets. This home was impeccably decorated, furnished and all we had to do was show up. Highly recommend this home and would gladly stay here again.

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.
