About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

This 3 bedroom mid-century modern Donald Wexler AIA designed home, with iconic butterfly roof design, has been newly remodeled in 2012 - retaining the classic architecture while incorporating the modern amenities and comforts of 21st century living.

Recently updated, this Palm Springs vacation home has all new appliances and furnishings, as well as a new air conditioning unit, dual-paned windows and sliding doors.

This 3 bedroom vacation home is light and bright with soaring ceilings throughout. A large wall of glass looks out from the living room to the pool and the gorgeous mountain backdrop beyond.

You'll find a huge, 50', new sparkling pool that is conducive both to lap swimming and lounging - incorporating a shallow tanning ledge (great for small children), fountain, shade umbrella holes, and an in-pool seat adjacent to the attached whirlpool spa. Pool floats and toys available for your use!

The expansive and private, fully-enclosed backyard of this 3 bedroom Palm Springs vacation home is professionally landscaped incorporating newly planted palm trees and a grapefruit and orange tree.

The south-facing backyard oasis commands amazing views of the nearby Palm Springs Mountains (Mt San Jacinto) to the south and west. Comfortable outdoor furniture, shade umbrellas and a large gas BBQ grill will entice you to spend as much time as possible outdoors.

Inside this Palm Springs vacation home the open kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops is fully equipped with everything you'll need to entertain family and friends.

The living area features a counter bar, gas fireplace, and 48" Smart TV (stream Netflix, Pandora, Hulu, etc) with DVD player - perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The double slider doors in the front and back of the house as well as the clerestory windows allow for plenty of natural light and stunning views.

All three bedrooms (one king bed, two queen beds) have new furniture, luxurious linens, and either a TV or clock radio with iPod docking, or both! The master bedroom features an antique Kroehler walnut bedroom set (circa 1962) and has an en-suite bathroom with direct access to the backyard.

This Palm Springs vacation home with 3 bedrooms offers wonderful amenities and conveniences such as free WiFi, unlimited calling to the US and Canada, and a two-car enclosed garage is available for your use.

The home is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the El Rancho Vista Estates historic midcentury modern residential neighborhood, just 5-10 minutes drive from downtown Palm Springs.

The Palm and Citrus is a dream-come-true whether you are a lover of mid-century modern architecture or merely appreciate a luxurious, relaxing desert get-away.

Perfect Getaway!

"This house offers the perfect getaway! The pool is sooooo beautiful. It's best pool we have ever seen in a rental. It is very big and has a sun shelf in the water, that is my favorite! I love how the lights change in it at night. Our kids loved it! We has so much fun. It was just great! "

Amazing Backyard!

"This property was perfect for my family of 6! We spent most of the day's outside because the backyard was the most perfect area I have ever seen and I go to Palm Springs a lot! The pool was amazing and very big but perfect! The house was very cozy but the highlight of this house was the pool area for sure! I will definitely rent this property again! "

Perfect Pool

"Our family of 6 spent our spring break at this home. We loved relaxing by the pool everyday. The size and the shape of the pool are wonderful for a large family. The smaller kids were playing and the teens were floating and suntanning all day. It is very private and quiet and the landscape is beautiful. "

Beautiful Mid-Century Modern Home

"The house is designed by the renowned mid-century architect Donald Wexler, and is part of the historic El Rancho Vista Estates neighborhood. The owners of the house have furnished the house to reflect the time it was built, and they have provided details to make the stay an amazing experience. The pool and hot tub are great, and you can sense the owners want their guests to have an outstanding time. The entire reservation team is outstanding. I have always had an excellent experience staying in homes/condos managed by Vacation Palm Springs. "

Sun Lovers Delight!!

"The Back yard is a Sun Lovers Dream!! Sun all day with a beautiful view of the mountains. The master bed room shower drain is plugged and the master bedroom sink flows very little water... The pool heater kept shutting off preventing the spa and pool to heat properly. The pool towels are stiff and ruff! If these minor problems were repaired, I would rent this property again... These Items have been addressed and repaired by the homeowners, Thank you! What I liked about this property is the location. The all day Sun exposure in the back yard. The size of the pool and jacuzzi. The amount of umbrellas and there location.. The back yard is well landscaped and clean.... I look forward to rent this property again... Bunnie was very helpful with all aspects of the rental process... Thank you!!!! Tony was also very helpful to resolve the pool heating pretty problem!!! "

Tranquil Home Away From Home

"Everything about the house was amazing. The pool was so tranquil and relaxing. The staff was amazing. They were so helpful and extremely nice when we needed them to come over. They were very attentive and never made us feel like we were burdening them. The remote for the pool/spa was not the one listed in the welcome manual. It was a little confusing, but Rick and everyone else was very helpful. "

Great Get Away

"So much nicer than coordinating hotel rooms and fighting for a lounge chair at the hotel pool. "

by Kris H. | Lake Forest CA | May 05, 2015

Another Great Stay

"We have stayed at this property a few times now, and the backyard never disappoints. It's a perfect oasis in which to spend a relaxing weekend. "

by Christina A. | Los Angeles CA | January 21, 2015

Amazing Pool

"Great backyard. Huge pool was enjoyed by everyone. Good location. Interior was sufficient. Would stay here again. The entire staff was excellent. Very easy to conduct business with your organization. No hidden fees. MUCH, MUCH BETTER THAN VRBO! I would definitely recommend your organization. Very easy and accommodating. "

Very Cute … Nicely Decorated House

"We thought the pool was very nice and all the furnishings were pleasing. We enjoyed the TV and stereo system in the living room and the great instructions for using everything. "

by Robert C. | Coronado CA | July 31, 2014

Great Outdoor Space!

"This house had everything you could need inside, but it was the beautiful outdoor space that made it amazing. The 50 foot lap pool is beautiful and great for relaxing or exercise. "

by Chad S. | West Hollywood CA | April 30, 2014

Amazing Pool!

"The Palm and Citrus backyard/pool can be described in one word "wow". The pool is 50 feet so there is plenty of space for everyone. My son is a toddler and the tanning shelf was perfect for him. He also loved the jacuzzi, it was his own personal little pool! He enjoyed practicing his swimming in both the big pool and jacuzzi. The inside of the house was nice, We spent most of our time poolside, which the whole family enjoyed. As other reviewers have mentioned the side of the house does have a major street adjacent to it, but it was not a major issue for us. The good thing is that it is on a cul-de-sac, so no major street traffic passes through front of the house. The two car carage only fit one of our trucks. It might fit two small vehicles, but defientely only one truck/suv. We had a great time! "

Can This House Be Renamed To "Pure Paradise"?

"What can I say? The house was perfect in every way. Liz cleaned it spotless before we got there. The pool was crystal clear. The property pristine. We really enjoyed being there. We didn't feel the need to leave and tour the area due to the beautiful yard and pool. We will definitely be back again to Palm Springs. "

by Menachem Z. | Monsey NY | March 01, 2014

Perfect Family Retreat

"We have little kids so the pool was fantastic. Heated and the large shelf for playing was brilliant, but then long enough to get some great swimming in too. Place was very conveniently located and we enjoyed being at the end of a cul de sac. The management company was most helfpul. "

by Bradley V. | Brooklyn NEW YORK | February 23, 2014

Another Great Stay

by Christina A. | Los Angeles CA | November 24, 2013

Great Pool

"The property was clean and nice. While the accommodations inside were very comfortable and cute, the backyard and pool/spa were the real selling features. Great Pool! The staff was very knowledgeable, kind, and very prompt in responding to questions. "

by Jeff W. | Los Angeles CA | November 06, 2013

Perfect Relaxing Getaway!

"This house was great for my friends and me to rent. The backyard is so great with such a large pool and a lot of options for shade depending on where the umbrellas are placed. It was a very relaxing and comfortable 10 days! We look forward to renting this house again. We loved the remote for the pool so we could make sure it was the perfect temp all the time. "

Floatin' Around The Pool

Our Palm Springs Getaway

by Evelyn G. | Glendale CA | July 22, 2013

Desert Paradise

"The pool and the design outside (the capability to put umbrellas in many different areas, the cactus garden), the interior design, the mid century style Nathan was very helpful! "

by Catherine F. | Burbank CA | June 26, 2013

Palm & Citrus Beauty

"The stay went without a hitch. Everything was exactly as advertised and the finishes were higher end than I had expected. This is a great house! The location is a little farther from town than some. Reservations and confirmation were quick and efficient and the couple of questions that we had were answered immediately. "

by TJ S. | San Diego CA | May 27, 2013

Nice, Relaxing Place To Hang By The Pool

"it was a very welcoming property. Everything you need to know is all located in the book. The shallow pool area and umbrella spots in the deck are best for relaxing. "

by Brandi G. | Los Angeles CA | April 22, 2013

Fun In The Sun

"I loved the ease of it all. Drive straight to the property, open the door and your vacation begins. The home was clean and beautiful. I cant think of anything that was missing. It was perfect. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. I have rented 5 times in the last 5 years and I dont have one complaint. "

by Andrea D. | Dana Point CA | April 10, 2013

Beautiful Outdoor Space

"The outdoor space is as good as it looks in the photos--or better. The pool is quite large (large enough to swim laps), with a shallow area that is great for kids, plus a hot tub and outdoor grill for cooking. Also, the house is clean and very stylish. We had a great time here. The pool chaises are a little uncomfortable, with a bar right across the lower back of the person who sits on them (We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Palm and Citrus and appreciate your comments and feedback. The chaise lounge chairs now have stylish cushions for increased user comfort ). The bar is fully stocked with nice glasses and cocktail shaker, etc. Finally, this house gets a fair amount of traffic noise. It is right on a main street. There is a sound wall, but it doesn't help much if you are in the smaller bedrooms (the master is a bit quieter). We were worried about airport noise, but that really is not a problem. In sum, this is a beautiful house and a relaxing vacation.

by Lauren D. | Oakland CA | March 30, 2013

Amazing Backyard

"This property has an amazing backyard/pool/spa/BBQ setup. If I were to design my ideal backyard I would make all of the same choices as the owners made when they built it. The layout of the house is nice and open, allowing you to flow from the outside to the living room and the kitchen. Everything is stocked to an amazing level and it's extremely easy to enjoy some R&R here. "
