About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

This vacation home was built by the famed Alexander Construction Company and sits on a quiet street in one of the first Palm Springs mid-century modern neighborhoods, known as the Racquet Club Estates. This historic neighborhood was once the playground for the infamous Rat Pack and Hollywood celebrities.

Recently remodeled in 2015, this mid-century modern Alexander home features, post and beam architecture, rock fireplace, new carpet, new furnishings and colorful fun decor throughout. This vacation rental is a great example of the wonderful indoor-outdoor living that makes Palm Springs such a popular year-round resort and vacation destination.

Walk in to the vintage style living room where you'll find fabulous new furnishings with walls of glass looking outside to the pool area. With an open floor plan it's easy to enjoy dining and entertaining with friends and family. The kitchen is supplied with everything you need to cook a gourmet meal. Just steps away the colorful dining area sits 8 more for plenty of room for everyone. Enjoy the colorful and fun decor.

Off the dining room is another living area, colorfully decorated with a comfortable sleeper sofa, fireplace and a marvelous sitting area that looks out to the pool and amazing mountain views.

The master bedroom features a king bed with comfortable bedding. The sliding glass door offers direct access to the backyard pool area. It also includes a modern ensuite bathroom with custom sink and walk in shower. The two guest bedrooms each feature queen size pillow-top beds and are stylishly appointed and comfortable. These 2 guest bedrooms share a hall bath with walk in shower.

Step outside to the patio, and sit under the misters while enjoying a cocktail with friends, or float in the saltwater pool enjoying the surrounding mountain views. The 8' deep pool has 2 in pool seats in the deep end and shallow seating the full width of the pool. In the evening gather around the firepit and enjoy time with your guests or unwind and stargaze in the above ground spa. This fully fenced in yard offers 2 lush green lawn areas and is completely contained for even the smallest of dogs.

For added convenience there is an interior laundry room with full size washer and dryer.

This historic and hip midcentury Alexander style vacation home awaits your next Palm Springs getaway!

Perfect Bachelorette House

"Perfect Bachelorette House The house is beautiful! Super colorful & fun interior design... Perfect for bachelorette planning & decorating. The backyard is amazing! It has a large pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor misters, fire pit, misters, pool towels, & pool floaties. It has plenty of space with two different, separated common living areas. "

Great Oasis In The Desert!

"Great oasis in the desert! The yard was amazing. When you were back there lounging in the pool it was like the world around you didn't exist. We had an awesome time, everything we needed was there for us. We also have 2 very small dogs and the yard was great for them to run around in and was puppy proof for them to get out of. The beds were very comfortable! Loved the Francis Alexander and all it had to offer us! "
