The interior is 100% air-conditioned and the kitchen is equipped with all extras like coffee-maker, ice machine, electric juice press, food processor and Nutribullet. 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). Legal & registered Vacation Rental.

We had wanted to visit PS for a long time as we are fans of Modernist design, and this trip was to coincide with the PS Modernism weekend. The house was perfect for this, being a 1959 mod’ House. We arrived on time, and contacted...More

About the neighbourhood
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 f...
Getting around
We recommend a car for letting around Palm Springs and the valley sights. You may also use our two easy-riding bicycles (one ladies and one gents) to explore the local area (there is a modest rental charge to cover maintenance and wear/tear). There are a number of cycle routes marked around town and a cycle route map available at the tourist office. The free town shuttle stops about one block away and is a great way to save using your car when going downtown.
