This is a wonderful house to stay in especially if you’re there for a week or more. The house was very clean and well-maintained and lives up to all the photographs on the listing. The outdoor space and pool was a huge asset. The yard was very private. Vacasa was great to deal with. Very responsive and professional. We would definitely stay here again.

This home is situated away from busy streets and was well equipped. If you are up for a good walk, you can walk downtown in about 15ish minutes. You do have to pay additional to heat the pool, easy to miss while scanning so many properties. It can be a little windy, which is great when it's hot! We couldn't get the ceiling fans to work in the bedrooms, and not a lot of vanity space if you have a lot of toiletry's - not the end of the world. Home was well equipped and comfortable.

We loved how bright and clean this place was. The appliances were top end and nice midcentury modern details with warmth. Our only advice is to update the How to book in the home. There weren't updated instructions on how to use the TV>

Everyone loved this house. I want my future home to look and feel like Alexander in the Sun. The location was a quick ride away from Downtown PS and just a couple of blocks away from the closest grocery store. I`m just returning from a scorcher of a Labor Day weekend and a little getaway with a pool is just what I needed. It felt like a home but didn`t have too much stuff in it. The photos look like a more cozy feel but I think it was spacious enough for the 6 guests and then some. Plenty of beach towels, sheets, dish ware, etc. There were even pool floaties and noodles, so you can leave those at home. The only negative, and I did reach out about this -- there was a little bit of a bug problem. They were harmless and didn`t bite, but we had to be careful where we walked to avoid stepping on them! I`m sure this kind of thing happens all over Palm Springs especially during 115 degree heat, but just know you might encounter some harmless, little friends trying to escape the heat. In spite of this, I would definitely come back and book Alexander in the Sun for future trips to the desert.

We loved the house and the pool was perfect for my two young grandsons. The house was easy to be in and the location was great. We were late arriving and it was no problem, the house code was emailed to me with no problem, partly because I had sent a copy of my ID earlier. Definitely glad I did that. We would stay longer! We all loved it! My daughter lives in near the beach and I am from the East Coast so it was a perfect mini vacation for us all as it was the boys` Spring Break from school (They are 8 and 6 yrs old.). My two little grandsons really enjoyed the pool, but we also enjoyed Joshua Tree and the Tramway!

Alexander in the Sun was a beautiful property and stylishly presented with lovely fixtures and furnishings. The pool and fire fit were a hit with the kids and made our stay very comfortable. Our family enjoyed our time in the quiet neighbourhood and wished that we could have stayed even longer.

The house is perfectly designed and beautiful. There are great places for lounging inside and numerous ones outside. The lounge area by the pool was perfect for spending the day swimming and snoozing! Kitchen is great for cooking meals and set up well. If you are looking for a clean, thoughtfully designed mid century house in Palm Springs this is most certainly the place!

One of my favorite Airbnb properties. Sparkling clean, sleek & chic. Well kept, plenty of cooking equipment, towels and toiletries. Property management was easy to deal with. Such a beautiful place for a relaxing vacation in the desert. I will most likely use again next trip to Palm Springs! Probably one of my favorite Airbnb properties. Wonderful experience, thanks!

This house was so beautiful, and perfect for our stay. We went as a girls weekend to celebrate a birthday. The house was decorated perfectly, amenities were perfect, and the outdoor area was beautiful and relaxing. Very quiet neighborhood with amazing homes all around us. The pool was not heated when we arrived, but we called and someone came out and heated it for us for an extra charge within the hour! Great service and response time, I would definitely stay in this house again. I have stayed in a lot of homes in Palm Springs through AirBnB, and this one has been my favorite so far!

This house was perfect for our annual girls trip! The appliances are high end, the rooms are comfortable and the pool was fantastic and very private! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. It’s nice how close it is to downtown. Just a short Uber ride! Highly recommend for no more than 6 people.

This house was perfect for my annual girls trip. There were 6 of us and the accommodations worked so well! We heated the pool, which I recommend, and spent most of the day poolside. It’s very private! The appliances are fabulous and perfect for the modern day chef. The place is kept very clean. Highly recommend this place!
