About This Listing
Architectural Digest called this property one of the 10 "most architecturally intriguing Airbnb rentals" and picked as "Best of Airbnb" by The Zoe Report.
Relax by the private pool and enjoy this mid-century oasis located near the fabulous Palm Springs Uptown Design district-but really there's no reason to leave the house. This classic Alexander is 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, 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 run throughout. If you choose to heat the pool, it will be warmed for your arrival. Free WiFi is provided. Come enjoy the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood located near the Uptown Design District shops and restaurants. The City of Palm Springs requires a written rental agreement prior to occupancy.
The pool is private and you may even find some pool toys in the garage.

If you love architecture and nature, this house is the perfect spot to stay in Palm Springs. Right in the center of a great set of midcentury modern houses, surrounded by desert gardens, with the mountains behind us, comfortable and beautiful in every detail. It has the spirit of the desert city at its best. We'd love to come back there... Joann was available and let us feel at home, giving also a lot of information and tips and responding to every request. Thanks Joann!
this was such a wonderful experience. the house was perfect and had everything you could need. Joann was responsive if i had any questions, but really gave us our space during our stay. the house was clean, bright, immaculately decorated. the pool space was private, quiet and comfortable. location was super convenient. overall super happy about this house. thank you!
Joann's house is amazing! It's decorated to perfection, yet feels very comfortable. The covered outdoor patio is a perfect spot for grilling food and hanging out by the pool. The neighborhood is very cute and the location is close to restaurants and the grocery store.
We spent a very relaxing 2 days in Joann's home. The pool was wonderful and perfect for a chilled stay. Joann was very quick to reply to my emails and offered great recommendations. There's so much to do - we loved hiking in Indian Canyons and could easily have stayed longer. We'd also recommend El Jefe's for a meal (particularly for the fish tacos). There were only 2 of us, but it's fantastic value if you make use of the 3 bedrooms. My only comment would be that the showers weren't very powerful, but it wasn't an issue for us. Overall, a wonderful stay!
Everything at Joann's house was accurately described and beautifully done. The touches like the espresso machine were very welcomed. The pool, kind of a must in Palm Springs, was also a great size. The location is also ideal, near the Uptown furniture shops and restaurants. One thing that we didn't see mentioned was the fact that the air conditioning was on a timer - we were a little confused in the morning. Other than that, we had a great holiday weekend here!
The house was absolutely beautiful! Joann was available by text. My guests and I were so happy with both the house and the pool area! Only minutes away from downtown.

About the Host, Joann
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 of a good book and a poolside chaise longue.
