Our completely renovated, impeccably maintained vacation home was designed by Kreisel, built by Alexander, and is located in one of the original Palm Springs mid-century modern neighborhoods: Historic Racquet Club Estates.
The peacefulness washes over you the moment you pass through our front door as you’re greeted by the welcoming open living spaces of our mid-century retreat.
The quintessential Palm Springs aesthetic is perfectly reflected in our butterfly-roofed home, complete with soaring ceilings, large clerestory windows and walls of glass throughout which allow you to enjoy amazing views of the desert and dramatic panoramic sights of the San Jacinto mountains.
The enchantment continues as you pass outside through the sliding glass doors into the your very own spacious, private oasis in the desert. The home boasts a beautiful saltwater pool, which will melt the rat race from you in seconds flat. If you decide to ever leave the pool, you’ll find yourself smack dab in the middle of an 11,000 square foot backyard complete with BBQ grill. This relaxing home fully defines the phrase "indoor-outdoor" living; it is ideal for entertaining or just hiding out and getting away from it all.
Located on a serene and quiet street in the heart of Palm Springs, just minutes from downtown’s hubbub of shopping, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment, this completely renovated, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house bathes you in the resort-like feeling that Palm Springs is famous for.
The private Casita sleeps 3 and is perfect for those visiting with children. It is complete with small kitchenette, full bath and sitting area.
There are modern tile floors throughout the common areas including all baths, which are stylishly executed with mosaic tile, chrome fixtures and frosted glass basins. Open the doors from the master bedroom and bathroom to the private side yard with outdoor fireplace. Bedrooms are done in high end carpet and luxury linens, with clerestory windows framing out picture perfect mountain views.
Kitchen and dining areas are perfect for entertaining and large families. Dining table comfortably seats 10-12 people. Flat screen TV's throughout the house, free internet and sound system to play music from your own Ipod, Ipad or phone.
Perfect for entertaining or just hiding out. All in all, a perfect escape.
What a gorgeous place! I almost hate to review it. :) 5 minutes from PS main drag, 3 minutes from Albertsons: could not be more convenient. We had a dozen friends from LA swing by for coffee/a beer/dinner during our 4 night stay, and every single person asked for the link to this house! Kindly stocked with basics - olive oil, salt + pepper, sugar, candles, etc. We had a BEAUTIFUL Christmas dinner here. Thank you, Karen and Tod!
The photos do not do justice to this gorgeous home. Every thoughtful detail makes staying at this home a treat. Sharp and unique décor, quality fixtures and comfortable mattresses. The pool was very private, relaxing and when heated (in November) very comfortable. Inexpensive cab rides to downtown. A wonderful experience, will definitely stay again.
We had an excellent weekend at Karen's Palm Springs house. The weather was perfect to enjoy the well-kept pool and garden. The house is tidy and the check-in process was easy. I would recommend staying here.
We had a great stay! Our hosts were very friendly and communicative. The house is (email hidden)ry well done. The detached casita is super cute. Would stay again and recommend to anyone looking for the Palm Springs experience.
Had a wonderful stay! All the amenities you would need for a fun weekend in Palm Springs. Why stay at the Parker when you can stay here. Highly recommend to friends and co workers. Looking forward to coming back soon.
We were visiting for a wedding, and wish would could have spent more time at this lovely home.
Great location, and the house and pool are very nicely kept and appointed well.
The space is very shareable because of the smaller casita in back.
Kitchen has all that you will need for your stay, and there is a market close by. I'd highly recommend for anyone wanting a weekend away by the pool, you won't regret choosing this house.
We very much appreciated the perfect location in a quiet neighborhood. The home is well-designed with warm indoor/outdoor spaces, yet with total privacy from the street and neighboring homes. Mountain view from the front yard, pool, dining room, both bedrooms, and master bathroom; a lovely pool w/outdoor shower, stargazing by the pool, several outdoor spots to enjoy the evenings, a very comfy home with warm design touches, and loaded kitchen with anything you would ever need for a weeks' stay. This home will make you smile everyday!
Karen has the house set up with everything you possible need to be comfortable. The house is immaculate and clean, a shining example of mid century modern and includes surprising touches like a bike, a separate casita if you want some privacy from the main house and an amazing kitchen. I ended up cooking meals in the house as it was just so amazing to hang out there. Highly recommend this property.
This is a true gem. The pictures don't do it justice. It was really nice being so close the strip as well. The pool was great. Kitchen had every appliance and utensil you would ever need. We had the best three days in a long time just relaxing by the pool. Beds are great even the towels are great quality. The place was SPOTLESS. Couldn't have been happier. Can't wait to come back.
What a beautiful home! We took morning walks in the neighborhood to quickly realize we were staying in the nicest home in the area! The home was a beautiful design, very spacious and great interior design. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. The pool was perfect size for the five of us. I have not had such a relaxing fun weekend in a long time. I will definitely plan another trip to this beautiful home. The host is very kind as well! The only problem we had all weekend was that we didn't want to leave! Thank you so much for opening this beautiful home up to share with others!
