About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

This Palm Springs mid-century modern home was designed by architect Donald Wexler. Wexler's work is considered amongst the best the mid-century period of home design has to offer.

This residence has been carefully updated to retain Wexler's original intent, while now offering all of today's bells and whistles. The home features great lines, bright sun, a desert-sized swimming pool/spa and a large glass-walled living expanse that opens onto three completely private outdoor entertaining areas and the large outdoor pool.

The first area features a large heated pool and party-sized spa. Here you can relax poolside and soak up spectacular mountain views. The second area contains a fire pit, a barbecue, and views of the home's beautifully landscaped grassy yard. The third area is a walled patio with a professional-grade regulation sized pool table.

Back inside the house is a spectacular living room with classic mid-century modern furnishings, rugs, and paintings. The living area also has a flat-screen television with DirecTV service (including premium channels like HBO and Showtime) and a Blu-ray DVD player. Polished concrete floors (throughout the home) make for an easy transition from pool to inside. A Nest climate-controlled HVAC system ensures cool days and toasty nights.

The home's fully-equipped renovated kitchen features stainless-steel appliances (including a double-drawer Fisher & Paykel dishwasher) and a breakfast/cocktail bar with stools. The home's dining area seats eight and has views of the mountains.

The master bedroom contains its own remodeled full bathroom with an original sunken "Roman" tub and shower. It also has a king-sized bed and its own flat-screen TV with premium satellite service and a Blu-ray DVD system. A sliding glass door opens to a private, contemporary-style breezeway with desert-inspired landscaping.

Another full bathroom services two bedrooms that have queen-sized beds (one with a flat-screen TV). One of these two bedrooms has a sliding glass door leading to the home's exterior enclosed breezeway. There is also a desk area to write "wish you were here" emails or postcards.

All three of the bedrooms have built-in closet systems with plenty of room for storage. A separate laundry room with full-size machines, a two-car carport, and a driveway that holds four additional cars add convenience and functionality to the property.

The home is located a few minutes from the aerial tramway, the airport, downtown shops and restaurants, casinos, public and private golf courses, the Living Desert zoo and botanical garden, and is a great locale to use as a base of operations during BNP tennis, Coachella Music Festivals, White Party, Modernism Week, or any other desert-specific event. The desert's massive outlet mall is less than 30 minutes from your front door. And famed Joshua Tree National Park (not to be missed) is a 45-minute drive.

Absolute serenity mixes with easy-access to all the area has to offer. Be our guests in this stylish Palm Springs mid-century modern mini-resort!

Awesome Yard, Pool And Spa

"The outside space on this house was absolutely fabulous, and we spent the majority of the stay outside enjoying this space. Any contact we had with the team was positive. They were very friendly and professional each time. "

by Barbara M. | Sherwood Park AB | March 24, 2016

Great Indoor/outdoor Home

"Love the Wexler home and style. The pool/ hot tub was the best part of the property. Stayed for a month and enjoyed the indoor/ outdoor feel of the home. Quiet neighborhood except for occasional airplane. "

by Sandy H. | Plymouth MN | March 24, 2015

Loved It!

"I loved everything about the house. From the pool and jacuzzi, to the fire pit, to the rooms and the overall house. Everything was clean and there were enough linens to use for the weekend. The only thing we had a hard time with was figuring out how to work the modern oven. Lol. Other then that the house was awesome! Everyone was so nice. Britt, Bunnie and jerry, thank you. "

"I loved how peaceful and free the house was... we LOVED the backyard and the house layout was perfect! "

by Cortni D. | Los Angeles CA | July 01, 2014

Good Choice: Always Difficult On-Line Sight Unseen

"Perfect Midcentury Wexler. Extremely well equipped. Perfect sun orientation. Comfortable beds. Good privacy and neighborhood. Well maintained and serviced. Outdoor dining and fire feature excellent. We would rent again. Nathan very responsive. Cleaning crew work excellent and efficient. A few glitches promptly corrected. Excellent service both before and during. Our daughter who finished out our unused time had a similarly good experience. "

by Reed C. | Madison WI | March 31, 2014

Private, Clean, And Relaxing

"Loved how private the home and yard was. We sat at the pool all day and night; never heard or saw any neighbor, didn't even hear a car drive by. It was completely private and we spent all day outside. Couldn't be happier with our trip. The screen door to the pool table doesn't stay on the rails and one of the beds isn't super comfy. Maybe label a trashcan for recycle. It would be nice for the air to kick on at night, even if it's set higher at night than the day. But nothing major - we were very pleased with our stay. Vacation Palm Springs was very honest and helpful when booking. "

by Ann R. | Murrieta CA | May 05, 2013

Hassle Free

"Property was easy to interact with including using the jacuzzi, Cable services and the HVAC system. Can't think of anything I would change. House was great! Justin in reservations was very helpful and easy to work with. I made several calls to owners on the VRBO website and never received a return call. Your business and website were much easier to work with. "

by Geoffrey P. | Arcadia CA | April 28, 2013


"Everything was clean and nice. Great pool area and quiet area "

by Ricardo P. | San Diego CA | April 21, 2013

Brilliant Sun

"The classic lines of the mid-century modern style were appealing. The home was nicely furnished and the pool was sparkling clean. The view of the mountains between the palms was 'palm springs classic'. Downsides were the TV in the bedroom didn't work and the proximity to Vista Chino and associated traffic noise. The pool table was an attraction, however it's location outside on the stuffy patio meant limited use due to summer heat. "

by Neville W. | CARLSBAD CA | September 09, 2012

Cool House, Great Hangout, Wonderful Design!

"Some parts of the home looked like new, modern and everything. Good home. Also, the movies provided were very good. "

by Edwin P. | Glendale CA | August 14, 2012

Fabulous Fun In The Sun!

"We love the sparkling pool, the immaculate grounds, the proximity to shopping and restaurants and the laid back atmosphere. The master bedroom needs some technical assistance. The cable box didn't work, the DVD remote did not allow for navigation of DVD's, the bedside lamps stopped working randomly. However, these were trivial items and everything else was wonderful. Everyone was lovely. "

by Megan A. | San Diego CA | August 08, 2012


"Reservations staff was excellent! I love the website and the perks for being a repeat guest are wonderful. "

by Megan A. | San Diego CA | July 11, 2012

Comfortable, Clean, Great Yard And Pool

"I really enjoyed the yard, pool, hot tub, fire pit and a beautiful private area. That was the best part of this rental. Really liked the concrete floors in the house. Nice kitchen as well. Bathrooms could use some updating. Overall I was pleased and did not want for anything while at the house. Maybe some updating in the bathrooms and some larger lights in the master bedroom. Other than that I did not feel that the house was really missing anything. "

by Todd C. | Columbus OH | March 06, 2012


"loved the architecture of the house and the landscaping of the yard! very well maintained. Also the furnishing is stylish and confortable, loved the pool table! was perfect at almost every level. (Pool table need a hoovering...) nate is very helpfull and so was every one else i had on the phone... "

by Anthony A. | London LONDON | November 22, 2011


"The pool was fantastic, the layout of the house was perfect. Sergio in reservations accommodated all my needs and went beyond to make me feel comfortable. Eric the property manager rescued us when we were locked out. I have already recommended Vacation Palm Springs and continue to do so. "
