The Space

This classic Alexander is newly renovated and updated for a modern lifestyle with reverence for Bill Krisel's original design. We call our style "earthy modern" with influence from Charles and Ray Eames California residence, and a Scandinavian-inspired palate of pale neutrals and wood textures. The kitchen features Heath tile, Terrazzo counter tops, a Breville espresso machine, and mountain views. An infrared gas grill is ready for your poolside BBQ. Enjoy meals from the vintage Cherner dining chairs with walls of glass overlooking the sparkling pool. The open floorplan lounge room provides relaxed viewing of the 46" LCD TV with HD satellite package. There's comfy beds in all three bedrooms with memory foam mattresses, cotton and Marimekko bedding. The master has a king and it's own bath, the middle bedroom a queen, and the third has two twins both with a shared main bath. The main bathroom is spa style with Heath tile, Terrazzo floors and custom built cabinetry made to emulate the original design. Refinished concrete floors throughout. If you choose to heat the pool, it will be warmed for your arrival. Free WiFi is provided as well as an iPod dock for your own personal playlist. Come enjoy the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood located near the Uptown Design District shops and restaurants.

  • The photos on Airbnb did the place justice - it was exactly as wonderful as we expected! The owner communicated all the vital information to me the week prior to our arrival, and provided a number to contact her should we have any questions during our visit. I actually did need a few bits of info when we first arrived, contacted her, and she replied within an hour. Awesome. We've stayed at a number of places in Palm Springs over the years and this would be the only place so far we would make our go-to spot.

  • Fantastic place. The pool is awesome. Great location. Joann was very responsive and helpful.

    Response from Joann:

    Unfortunately, there is only one internet company with service to our house. We pay for the fastest service available. It's rare that it's out for that long but it's certainly not nearly as good as we are used to in a larger city.

  • This was a fantastic house in a very good location in Palm Springs. We really enjoyed our stay. The house is in an excellent condition with three very comfortable rooms and a fabulous pool. All the facilities you think you may need are provided. Would highly recommend it

  • Our stay at Joann's house was nothing short of perfect. I'd be there right now if I could.

  • We booked Joann's home for 3 days and were absolutely thrilled with our stay. She was fast to respond to any questions we had and a pleasure to deal with. Spacious rooms, clean, and well appointed. Close to north end of town and the Tram which should be a must see in PS. Would definitely stay here again and would be perfect for a group or two couples to share.

  • We had a fabulous time at this house! The view from the pool is unreal and magical. The interior is super clean and nicely designed.

  • This was our second time staying at Joann's house, and it was fantastic. The pool is beautiful, kitchen has everything you need, and she was readily accessible when we had questions. Looking forward to staying here again in the future.

  • We've rented this beautiful Alexander for only a couple of days but had an amazing time in it. The house was perfectly clean and equipped and we were so happy about having great dinners every single night with the full functioning and professional barbecue right at the pool. We can only recommend this charming place with its fantastic view and we are looking forward to coming back someday.

  • My reservation was actually for my in-laws as a surprise retreat. They loved Palm Springs, the neighborhood, and especially the house. The photos they returned with looked amazing, and they thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool (in January!).

    I'm hoping to repeat their trip in April with my own family, and look forward to living in the Alexander home for a few days.

I live in Los Angeles but spend as much time as I can escaping to the desert. It satisfies my interest in architecture and design as well as my appreciation for a good book and a poolside chaise longue.
