Description

**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.
 
As part of the County Health Supervisor's restrictions on short-term lodging, extra "daytime" guests are not allowed. The only guests allowed on the property are the guests registered as overnight guests.
 
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.


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.

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
