About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

This gorgeous midcentury modern vacation home was elegantly designed by Palmer & Krisel for the Alexander Construction Company in 1959 and has been recently updated in 2012 with beautiful finishes and today's modern conveniences.

Featuring the iconic Alexander butterfly roof-line, this "Sleek Retreat" offers impeccable midcentury style and makes the most of the indoor-outdoor living Palm Springs is famous for.

The great room is open and bright with clean sleek design, offering clerestory windows and walls of glass looking out over the private pool and remarkable mountain backdrop. The simple sliding glass doors of the 50's have been replaced with top-of-the-line expansive Fleetwood pocket doors that brings together the indoor and outdoor living that makes Palm Springs such a special vacation home destination. Seamless transition from inside to outdoors makes this an ideal midcentury modern vacation home.

You'll find the kitchen in this midcentury modern vacation home is a chef's delight, featuring stainless steel appliances, abundant quartz countertop prep space, gas range, and all of the small appliances you'll need to prepare delicious meals for friends and family.

Excellent Family Vacation Home

"Excellent family vacation home We stayed at Sleek Retreat for 1 week during March 2017. This beautiful home is well equipped and was perfect for our family of 5. The reservation process was very professional. We did not have any interaction with the vacation managers apart from key pick up and drop off. "

Gem In A Beautiful Setting

"Gem in a beautiful setting The house was well located with lovely mountain views. The pool was wonderful and at the perfect temperature. Really loved the fire pit, we used it almost every night because it was kind of chilly. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The house feels very private, and it is a very quiet neighborhood. "

Quiet Retro Fun

"The house was beautiful in its retroness and I absolutely loved it. The house was clean, and comfy while being very relaxing in the quiet neighborhood it was settled in. The facilities on the property were amazing. Loved the openness of the sliding glass walls out to the back with the pool and yard and fire pit. Our family had a wonderful time with our Mothers Day weekend getaway that we all very much needed. "

Perfect For My 40th Birthday Week Home Base

"Great space - it's a well restored butterfly alexander (when we took a mid century modern architecture tour the tour guide turned into our driveway for us and told us about our house - it's that good). Excellent open space in living room and kitchen, great pool, great bathrooms, everything you need (including the fruit ninja in the closet). "

Idyllic Midcentury Home - Modern And So PS!

"The actual house was better than the pictures and after just three days it was clear that were we to ever buy a house in Palm Springs it would have to be as close to this classic, yet completely updated, Alexander butterfly as possible. Could not have been a better vacation - thank you, and we will will be back! "
