Chic & Contemporary Dog-Friendly Home w/High-Speed WiFi, Private Outdoor Pool

Welcome to Wexler Modern Villa! A mid-century modern home designed by accomplished architect, Donald Wexler. This beautifully appointed home's bold architectural elements and unique design features like redwood ceilings, black slate tiles, and sliding doors that open to the east and west-facing yards are something you won't find anywhere but here. You will especially love the west-facing living room that has wood ceilings, a decorative fireplace, floor-to-ceiling glass, and easy access to the large yard and private outdoor pool that show off unparalleled views of Mt. San Jacinto. The modern and well-equipped kitchen features Danish modern style cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and stone counters. It opens to the living and dining areas as well as the west and east yards. One of the unique treats this dog-friendly home away from home offers is that each bedroom has its own patio. Incredible, right? Another unbeatable perk is having your own washer/dryer combo at home. There will be no need to go around downtown looking for a laundromat.

WHAT’S NEARBY

You'll be located in the popular El Rancho Vista Estates neighborhood, the first of the Wexler & Harrison residential subdivisions. Developer Roy Fey, a former Chicago accountant who came to the desert and built a small real estate empire, developed this subdivision. He saw the potential Southern California Modernist architecture had in the emerging post-war housing market. His belief in the product led him to use the street name “East Avenida Fey Norte” to memorialize his involvement in the development – a not uncommon practice among residential developers. This gorgeous three-bedroom, two-bath mid-century modern home is a short three-mile drive from downtown Palm Springs restaurants and shopping, including Jake's, Cheeky's, Tropicale, El Jefe, Tinto, Workshop, and more. The residence is located in Palm Springs' El Rancho Vista Estates. Try your luck at the nearby Agua Caliente Casino Palm Springs (three and a half miles), or practice your swing at Escena Golf Club or Cimarron Golf Resort.

Let me start with what was wonderful: the house itself. Beautiful Wexler, mid-century updated with very attractive wood and black accents. The home stays fresh, welcoming during the summer months, and the master bedroom area is a lovely room to spend a few hours when it is too hot out. But please remove that silly waterproof cover on the master mattress: it makes the bed linens slippery! Large pool, nice amenities. The only gripe with the house itself is the water pressure in all showers, laughably low.

The real issue comes from the lack of obvious amenities that should absolutely come with a house of this standing - and at this price. I would expect some version of a nice quality set of pool towels... not the cheap, ugly Vacasa-branded ones provided. The grill is extremely small for a home this size, and begs for an upgrade. No dish rack, very limited amount of dishware and utensils, no aluminum paper or cling wrap... this house is not for the chef in you. The beautiful Nespresso machine is a nice touch... but without pods, it is rendered useless.

The previous tenants apparently broke the large window by the door right before us, and Vacasa did not offer compensation of any kind. I loved the house, but would have loved it more if it weren't a Vacasa-managed rental.
Manager response:
We're sorry to read you were disappointed in our services, Christophe. The kitchen inventory is being bulked up with the exception of the drying rack due to the limited counter space. The window repairs are in process but are taking time due to the colored, textured nature of the glass. Maintenance is taking care of the water pressure. Thank you!

This place was immaculate! High quality authentic furnishings, clean, relaxing, and we really enjoyed the heated pool!! After walking around we decided it was the best house in the Wexler/Harrison neighborhood! The only reason I withheld a star is for the flat pillows which caused some neck issues. Everything else was on par and perfect!
