Bedrooms have super-comfortable mattresses, high thread count linens, quality bedding and loads of wardrobe space. The TV room has a Samsung 55" flat screen with Time Warner cable & unlimited wifi.

The lovely gardens with their mountain views have been re-designed and restored by William Kopelk, who also was responsible for the famous Mid-Century gardens of Neutra's Kaufmann House (and is President of The Palm Spings Preservation Assn). Designed in low-irrigation desert style there is a small grassed area with lemon trees at the rear, fire pit and BBQ. The pool is heated and is totally private.

An outdoor covered patio has comfortable seating, also has mountain views and overlooks the pool and gardens.

Within walking distance of the famous design district and just a mile from downtown the location is excellent. Take a stroll - or cycle on your own complimentary bikes - around the local streets for a mini-modernism tour of the wonderful mid-century modern homes of the Racquet Club Estates. Just a fraction farther, and also well worth exploring, are the Movie Colony, El Mirador and Old Las Palmas (watch out for Leo!)

Garage parking is possible for two cars and off street parking for two more.

The property is a rented private home. It is suitable for careful and considerate adult guests. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and noise needs to be kept to a reasonable level day or night.

Reservations within 4 weeks of departure usually discounted - please contact us for a quote. Three days usual minimum (2 days may be possible at a supplement - please ask).

Location description from owner

The California region

Palm Springs is returning to its glory days as a Hollywood playground and a spot for modern architectural aficionados, musicians and artists. There are events like the International Film Festival, Modernism Week and Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals or museums like the Architecture and Design Center or Sunnylands.

The Rat Pack lived, loved and played here perhaps take the homes of the stars tour. There are treasures in Uptown Design District, and plenty of dining alfresco in downtown bistros on streets, lined with palm trees, boutique shops and art galleries. Take the world famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the peaks of the San Jacinto Mtns, play a round of golf, or hike the ancient palm groves of Indian Canyons.

Palm Springs

The Racquet Club Estates were one of the earliest areas of Palm Springs to be developed and retain an uniquely authentic Mid Century style. A large number of the homes in the area have been renovated to a high standard and the locality represents one of the high points of the Modernism movement in Palm Springs. Modernism Tours regularly visit the area and some of the scheduled Tours in Modernism week stop near the property.

The property is just one mile from central Palm Springs which is an easy and relatively traffic-free drive away. There is a local free shuttle to the town centre (schedule will be advised) that has a stop about 400 yards away. Two lovely new (and bright orange!) easy-ride bicycles can be provided for your use at $9 a day each for full stay only (you are responsible for damage or loss!). The historic Racquet Club Estates, within which the property is located, can be explored on foot.
