About this Palm Springs Vacation Rental

Once again, This home on The Modernism Week Wexler Weekend Tour for 2018
Midcentury Modern Gem!This gorgeous midcentury modern vacation home was designed by renowned architect Donald Wexler in 1960, and has been featured in Palm Springs Modernism Week 2013. It has been recently updated with exceptional modern luxuries and conveniences.

Located in the historic El Rancho Vista Estates neighborhood of Palm Springs, this midcentury modern architectural vacation home offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, over 1,600 square feet of living space, and retains many of the original decorative design features.

You and your guests will enjoy this Palm Springs vacation home's two stylish living areas on either side of the recently updated kitchen and dining room. This home is furnished with period pieces and high quality reproduction furniture from the owners' own furniture company, Mid Mod Finds (midmodfinds.com), creating a truly mid-century experience - it's the perfect combination of stunning mid-century design with every possible modern amenity!

Relax in the casual sunken family room while viewing the 55" TV with DVD player, Atari 2600 with classic games, and 1960s Bose stereo sound system complete with turntable, or enjoy the openness of the adjoining living, dining and kitchen areas.

This spectacular Palm Springs home was designed to maximize your enjoyment of Palm Springs weather and year-round sunshine. Large walls of glass in the living room look out over the sparkling pool & spa and the breathtaking mountain backdrop beyond.

The fun, artful midcentury modern design in this Palm Springs vacation home continues outside in the fully walled private pool area. This newly designed pool includes a "Baja Shelf," a shallow flat area perfect for sun worshipers and little swimmers, umbrella stand, saltwater chlorination (gentler on the skin than traditional chlorine), water feature, and elevated waterfall spa. The iPod controller lets you set up the pool, spa and lighting according to your preference from anywhere inside the home or in the pool area.

In the evenings, as the sun dips behind the gorgeous Palm Springs mountains, you can enjoy drinks around a four-pit gas fire feature in the center of this backyard oasis beneath towering palms. You'll also find a built-in barbeque, outdoor dining for up to 6, lounge chairs for 6, a 12' rotating umbrella, retro hanging Globe chair, and plenty of outdoor seating to soak in the sun and enjoy the stunning mountain vistas.

You'll find everything you need to prepare delicious meals for you and your guests in this recently updated kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and all of the small appliances and service ware you'd find at home.

The master bedroom is spacious and inviting, with a king size bed, a 42" TV as well as an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Two guest rooms down the hall share a bathroom with tub and shower combo. Each of the bedrooms is delightfully decorated with fun accents and colors and features its own TV and queen size beds.

This gorgeous midcentury modern vacation home is located just a short drive from Downtown Palm Springs with wonderful shopping, restaurants, and art galleries.

A Mid Century Desert Dream

"My friends and I rented this house in October and had the best time. The house is great for outside living, and has made the most with the pool, spa and outside seating. I loved that it was in the sun all day until sunset, and the gas fires really create an amazing ambience at night. "

Mod Perfection

"We loved the decorations, the ease of the iPod control for everything. I would maybe mention the back yard is actually in the front yard. It was a little strange. "

Wexler Wonderland

"My friends and I enjoyed a delightful escape from our lives and were able to make dinner, serve cocktails, and sit by the pool every evening and catch up - enjoy each others company in my favorite town in America I actually didn't realize how close to the main road this house was. it didn't bother anyone in the house but me but perhaps letting the renter know that there is busy street noise would be helpful Everyone was wonderful, cordial and extremely helpful!

Great Home!

"I love the way it was designed, furnitures, appliances. It 's so modern. The pool is great. My 3 yr old son was able to play in the shallow tanning shelf area. The fire pit was a plus, really great with photos. We really felt like home. Justin is the best. He made sure that we were having a great time. He called and made himself available for questions or concerns throughout our stay. "

Better Than Advertised

"The MidMod Wexler was even better than I expected. I am naturally pessimistic when I read glowing reviews and had my reservations when reading them about this property and Vacation Palm Springs. However, I am living proof that you can be surprised (for the better) and the property was more than we could have asked for. The property has been completley updated both in and outside yet maintains the Donald Wexler style of archictecture. The rooms are design to throwback as if you were in the 60's. Everything was great and even better than reflected in the photos Josh made the reservation easy and there were no hiccups during our stay. "

by Anthony G. | Costa Mesa CA | September 08, 2013

Gorgeous Home & Amazing Pool!

"The Midmod Wexler Retreat home is gorgeous inside and out! The rooms are spacious and we loved the kitchen and dining room area. Cooking with multiple people was no problem and the counter space fit everything, and then some! The pool is paradise and we couldn't get enough of the jacuzzi with awesome massage jets. The furniture and lighting fixtures were great, with fun details including a rotary phone, complete & working Atari game set (which we all loved) & a record player, to name a few. This home has everything you need for a relaxing getaway! "

by Jasmine C. | Los Angeles CA | July 22, 2013

Just Bring Your Swim Suit And Relax

"The property was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed as far as cooking, entertainment, linens, towels, etc. I would recommend that you tell the guests that they can't run both the pool heater and the spa heater at the same time. Sergio was wonderful to work with. "

by Michael L. | Los Angeles CA | April 09, 2013
