About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

The Aluminum House is an exceptional and rare architectural find in the heart of the Movie Colony East neighborhood in Palm Springs. What makes this home unique is that it features an all-aluminum frame, an extremely unusual building material in 1953. Only Albert Frey, in Palm Springs, was known to have used the material in the construction of homes. Aluminum is lightweight, strong, resistant to mold, warping and termite damage.

This private two bedroom home showcases architecture that was clearly way ahead of its time. The Aluminum House is a light filled home that has been remodeled with a vigilant respect for the homes simplicity and Zen like sophistication. This is both a special and significant home and is a must see for any mid-century architecture aficionado.

You and your guests can find relaxation in the sun filled family room viewing the 50” TV with DVD player while enjoying the openness of the adjoining living, dining and kitchen areas. The wide expanses of glass connect you to the private pool area, the rear patio with a fire pit and the breathtaking views of the San Jacinto Mountains.

The kitchen is filled with every necessity for high-style dining and entertaining which features a five-burner gas range, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and bar seating for 4. The adjoining dining room seats four. Just off the kitchen, you can find a desk and chair for those who need some time to catch up on some work.

The master bedroom offers a King size luxury bed, 42” TV with DVD/Blu-ray player, en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. The spacious second bedroom offers a Queen size bed, 32” TV with DVD/Blu-ray player and an en-suite bathroom with shower and tub combo.

The Aluminum House features both a front and rear patio area. The orientation of the pool area in the front patio area of the home allows for maximum sun exposure, where you and your guests can get the most of the Palm Springs lifestyle. Catch some rays in one of the two lounge chairs while admiring the remarkable San Jacinto Mountains or simply take a dip in the relaxing pool. The outdoor dining area in the front of the home features an al fresco dining experience for four with the gas grill that is located on the rear patio. In the evenings, relax on the rear patio around the gas fire pit enjoying the quiet surroundings that was created for your outdoor living pleasure.

The home is conveniently located 5 minutes from the airport, downtown shops & restaurants, public and private golf courses, art galleries and nightlife. Palm Springs area activities include world class golf, swimming, hiking, botanical gardens, desert landscape parks, water theme park, aerial tram, tennis, gyms, horseback riding and shopping (high-end outlet mall nearby).

Also enjoy nearby Joshua Tree National Monument (an extraordinary national park set in the desert). Theme parks within two-hour drive include Disneyland (Anaheim) and Sea World (San Diego), as well as a Wet n’ Wild Waterpark in Palm Springs.
