Mid-century modern home w/ gas grill, private spa & heated outdoor pool!

This mid-century modern home has been completely restored to include all of the amenities you expect in a luxury getaway to Palm Springs. Designed in 1959 by famed Southern California architect William Krisel and built by the Alexander Construction Company, this home's soaring 'butterfly' roof is an icon of mid-century architecture. The spacious outdoor area is a private paradise with stunning, unobstructed mountain views. The pool is large enough to swim laps in, and has an eight-person integrated hot tub. The large pool deck has a wonderful lounging area facing the mountains, an outdoor dining table shaded by a pergola, and a commercial-grade gas grill. At night, gather around the firepit for s'mores and watch the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway ascend 8,500 feet to the peak of the San Jacinto Mountains! Inside, the spacious living/dining area is furnished with pieces by modern designers, and the fully-equipped kitchen offers plenty of room to cook, dine, and relax with family and friends. When you’re ready for sleep, all three bedrooms have ultra-comfortable, memory foam beds.

What's nearby:
This home is located on a quiet street in Palm Springs's historic Racquet Club Estates, making it a mere mile-and-a-half from the main drag of downtown. Palm Canyon Drive is lined with delicious restaurants, fun shops, and various museums that every guest will enjoy. If hiking is on the agenda, simply head over to Tahquitz Canyon, Indian Canyon, or Mount San Jacinto State Park!

My husband and I stayed a week for our anniversary and we LOVED this house. We spent lots of time outside - the pool was sparkling clean and the view was breathtaking, especially when the sun illuminates the mountains in the morning. There was plenty of room in the pantry to store our food and we appreciated how well-stocked the kitchen was – there is everything you need to cook & enjoy a relaxing dinner at home or by the pool. We have already reserved another week for 2022!

Well maintained house, but the neighborhood is a little bit run down so this house stands out as a beautiful reminder of the Mid Century era.
Things to know before you go:

Pool is great but it’s severely over chlorinated so your eyes will begin burning in the first 30 minutes. Bring Visine. Solid umbrellas and outdoor furniture.

Kitchen: Ice maker has been removed from the freezer so BYO ice. Cabinets are made of super cheap peg board and look a lot nicer in the pictures than real life. Also no space for pantry storage, every cabinet was packed full.

Beds: not sure what amazing brand these are but I would buy one if they were for sale. Amazing sleep!

Outside space is terrific. The landscape and hard scape make for the most amazing backdrop. Views of the mountains and the tram at night.

Loved this property and how well vacasa handled anything that popped up and needed attention. The bedrooms, living space, and back yard - A+. Comfortable beds & very clean. The only thing needing attention was the pool. The pump ran very little and I think I skimmed the pool 4 times a day. Leaves are falling from the privacy hedge this time of year (which is an awesome feature). However guests need access to a vacuum or the pool needs to be serviced more than Fri and Tuesday. By the second day a significant amount was on the bottom of the pool. Overall we loved it and will totally book again - the pool is what we came for so having that tended to or making the proper equipment available would be great.

We enjoyed our time lounging in the pool. The kitchen has everything we needed and more. Good job.
. May 2019
This place is amazing. Check-in process was quick and easy. The house is so clean and the open floor plan is perfect. So much natural light during the day. Spent most of our time lounging at the pool. The neighborhood is so quiet and anything you need is less than 1 mile away.
. Aug 2018
The house was perfect for 6 people. The pool was perfect and the appliances such as the washer/dryer, dishwasher, and grill were great! Communication was not a problem.
. Jan 2018
This house had everything that we look forward to when we stay in Palm Springs. The hot tub and the pool are integrated together and are situated for enjoying the view of the San Jaconto mountains. Everything was top notch in the house too. We loved all the furniture choices and the beds were super comfy!
. Nov 2017
Great location with easy access to all parts of town. The gym and grocery store are even walkable. The pool and private yard, just perfect for a `holiday` get away.
. Mar 2017
We loved the mid-Century modern architecture and décor as well as the updated appliances and bathrooms. We also loved the outdoor space - lots of seating, great pool and the view!! Reservation process was very easy and thorough. We didn`t have any issues at all during the stay.
. Mar 2017
This is an excellent house. The owners clearly put a lot of thought and time into making guests feel welcome into their home. We loved the furnishings (though, we`d suggest a more comfortable sofa) and the pool area. This house has three well-sized bedrooms and is in a great location, about a mile away from the local gym and Albertson`s and about a mile away in the other direction from the Uptown Design District. Loved the rug in the living room, and the beds were super comfortable. The dining table is perfect for a group dinner, and the pool area is really nice. Overall, this is a great house.
. Mar 2017
From the moment we arrived at this house, to the moment we left (reluctantly) - we were in heaven! The Midcentury Alexander House is as beautiful inside as it is outside. The pool area is perfectly designed, especially with the spa attached to the pool. We couldn`t have been happier with this gorgeous home! If you`re even thinking about staying here, don`t hesitate, just book it and you`ll be happy you did!
. Jan 2017
Their homes are always top-notch and if there is a problem, they fix it immediately.

The home is beautiful, comfortable, relaxing, and perfectly situated. We`ve stayed all around and this is by far our favorite rental when we need to get away from LA! It couldn`t have been better! Everything was smooth.

I didn`t want to leave! The house is beautiful, the decor is impeccable, and the pool and outdoor areas are perfect. Idyllic Palm Springs getaway.

This house is unique and luxurious. All newly remodeled. The original 50s design has been preserved, inside and out, unlike many of this era. Unobstructed mountain view from new Pebble Tec pool and large spa/hot tub. Central location. Beautiful landscaping on the over-size lot. Fire Pit. BBQ. Every convenience, even built-in USB ports in the bedrooms.

. Jan 2015
Home was luxuriously appointed with comfortable beds, plush towels and linens. Very easy to find everything with helpful labels. Beautiful mid-century furnishings add to the appeal. Backyard pool and spa is a quiet oasis that provides a fabulous view of the mountains. Conveniently close to downtown Palm Springs. What a treat to experience the true retro style of Palm Springs in an original mid-century Alexander home. Would highly recommend this gem.
. Jan 2015
This is a stunning mid-century modern Alexander home. Beautifully furnished with period pieces. Fully stocked with everything you need. The pool and spa are amazing. The Tempurpedic beds are to die for. Just perfect for a vacation rental. We`re coming back. Don`t change a thing!
. Jan 2015
location was the best. Close to everything. Floor plan was perfect for my group, giant open floor plan in common area and access to the pool where we spent most of our time. Ultra clean and modern. It was so neat and tidy from the interior to the outside landscaping. I was almost scared to mess it up!
