About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental
Suddenly, it's 1957! Welcome to Palm Springs Modern Classic. This Twin Palms vacation home has carefully recreated the look and feel of its original William Krisel design. Originally completed in 1957 by the Alexander Construction Company, this home is known as the "Gable."
The renovation team worked closely with Mr. Krisel during the remodel and restoration of this exciting midcentury modern home. The team consulted his archives, now at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, attempting to return the home to the look and feel that it had when first completed. The floor plan, a masterpiece of space planning, continues to work beautifully for today's lifestyle.
As you enter the home, it is bright and welcoming. Upgraded touches include terrazzo tile used throughout with premium carpeting in the bedrooms. The massive stone fireplace, difficult to recreate today, anchors the great room.
Walls of glass provide a magnificent open view of the mountains, and offer the indoor/outdoor living environment Palm Springs is known for.
The open concept kitchen, living, and dining areas overlook the fabulous pool deck, which faces west, and is back-dropped by the 10,000 foot San Jacinto mountain range seeming so close you can touch it. The well stocked and modern amenity kitchen is a chef's dream.
There is plenty of dining space with a large dining table with seating for 9 indoors, and a 6-top for outdoor dining. If cooking is not in the cards, take advantage of the variety of nearby popular restaurants, some within walking distance and others less than 2 miles by car to downtown Palm Springs.
This Palm Springs mid century vacation home features 3 comfortable bedrooms all boasting Tempurpedic memory foam mattresses and flat screen HDTVs and Blu-Ray/DVD. The master features a California king bed, 46" TV, and a beautifully renovated ensuite bath. Bedroom two also features a Californian King bed, 40" TV, and shares a hall bath with bedroom 3, which has 2 twin beds and a 40" TV.
The cabinetry in the kitchen and baths is based upon Mr. Krisel's designs as originally installed in the home, but now finished in luxurious walnut. The cabinet hardware and sliding peg-board doors are the same as specified in 1957.
Come and enjoy your next vacation in this midcentury gem located in the beautiful neighborhood of Twin Palms. Walking distance to the ACE Hotel, Saguaro and Koffi.
About this House - Architect
On the exterior, the home is finished in an original color scheme specified by Mr. Krisel. Carefully researched from the files of the now defunct O'Brien Paint Company and correctly applied as originally specified in Mr. Krisel's paint call out sheet, the colors of Persian Grey, Off White and Apricot Glow with trim of Weathered Brown blend together beautifully and simultaneously give the home a warm vintage feel, but still thoroughly fresh for today.
Mr. Krisel has personally created the landscaping for this project. A student of the great landscape architect Garrett Eckbo, Mr. Krisel's design creates a Mondrian-esque painting out of rock, cactus and lawn drawing your eye to the lines and features of the house.

Beautiful Mid Century
"The house is lovely, beautifully redone and very cozy. The view is spectacular and the neighborhood is very nice. The only thing I might recommend is to make explanation for using the TV's easier. The reservation team was great as well as your staff that came out to the house to show us how to use the TV and the fire place. "
"This home, which has undergone an extensive and sensitive restoration, has just the right mix of mid century authenticity and contemporary convenience to appeal to everyone. The high level attention to detail is obvious everywhere you look. The cabinetry is superb and the house has a general quality feel. The Tempur beds are very comfortable and the linens are a very high standard. This is a very comfortable and very clean home which I would be happy to return to. It is conveniently situated in the area behind the Ace, in a street where most homes have been renovated or well maintained. "
"The kitchen was well out-fitted. The pool and fire pit were both awesome. The proximity of the house to downtown Palm Springs, as well as other basic shopping - grocery store, banking, etc. - was nice to have. Overall, me and my friends had a terrific time here! "
Great Weekend Getaway (or Longer)
"Property was awesome, newly remodeled. Super clean. Very well stocked with towels, kitchen stuff, free Netflix,....). Everything worked great. Nicely landscaped pool area with fire pit. Pool is a good size. Located real close to shops yet still very quiet. The house is perfect. Best one so far. Only thing, we like larger pools, but this one was ok. Nate from reservation team was very nice and helpful getting the reservation completed. I was in Europe while making the resi and my credit card company wouldn't approve the charge at first. Nate made sure I still got the house I wanted. "
Gable House Fun
"This property is in a great, quiet location close to town. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need for a fun and relaxing stay. All the beds and lounge chairs are extremely comfortable. This is a great house for a small family or a group of 4 to 5 people. We spoke to multiple members of the reservation team. Each one was extremely friendly and helpful! Excellent service! "
"Twin Palms Gable exceeded our expectations, and we are very picky! Good design is very important to us and this home more than lived up to our standards... beautiful interiors, excellent appointments throughout, extremely roomy and comfortable, and an all-around joy to stay in. This is the perfect Midcentury Modern getaway. We plan to return in October for a wedding at the ACE hotel... this house is only two blocks from the hotel and so much nicer! I spoke to Sergio on the phone when I was having trouble figuring out where to find the pool rafts/floaties, and he was extremely friendly and helpful. I also called another night, after hours, when we were having trouble lighting the BBQ... our call was promptly answered and we received the help we needed. Great service! "
Twin Palms Gable is Fantastic!
"We couldn't have been happier with the house. The post modern architecture and interior design were exactly what we wanted. The open space layout is beautiful and unique and provides for endless entertainment and conversation. Everyone loved the fact that all the rooms featured tempurpedic beds. The fireplace outside was also a nice touch at night. The outside fireplace is a gas fire place. Make sure to have a long lighter to light the fire. There is also a water filter inside the fridge. We did not notice this until our last day at the house. Portia was extremely helpful! "
"The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The kitchen was especially well stocked. The only thing missing was pool toys/floats. - VPS Comments: Pool floats/toys are stored in the laundry room for security. The owners commit to making this information more prominent for future guests. "
"This place was fantastic , comfortable, modern, perfectly appointed. Mid century modern with all of today's the trimmings. Grab your raft and enjoy! "
"Everything. The large open sliding glass door brought the outside in. The pool was fantastic. The house was wonderful, we enjoyed our stay immensely. "
Perfection in Twin Palms
"The house is beautiful and decor is perfection to the time period of the architecture. It was very comfortable and we felt like we were at home away from home. Our kids wanted to move in! The location was close to everything we needed as well - there was a great coffee shop a short walk away. The only thing that would have made it better is more vacation time to spend there! The staff at Vacation Palm Springs was very accommodating. "
Relaxing Stay in a Slice of Palm Springs History
"The property was immaculate and well appointed. While the look was mid-century the amenities were 21st Century in every respect. Flatscreen TVs, wifi, beautiful baths and a gourmet kitchen were great and all worked easily. The pool area was perfect for out door relaxing with a full view of the mountains. The pool itself was warm and very clean. Tables and chaise lounges are more then adequate for a gathering of family and friends around the pool. Even for our October weekend stay, nights were just chilly enough for a warming fire in the fireplace. The outdoor gas firepit was perfect for watching the sunset! I was also impressed with the central location, a 5 minute walk to visit friends at The Ace or brunch at The Suguaro. There is also a grocery store and other conveniences literally right around the corner. All the conveniences of Palm Springs with the privacy we sought for our get away to the desert. I would definitely stay here again! The property was clean and ready upon our arrival. "
