About the property

3 Br, 2 Ba Mid Century Modern Home Only Minutes From The Airport And Downtown

TOT Permit #6507 City of Palm Springs City ID: 3197

This 3 BR 2 BA classic Alexander construction home is everything you dreamed about when visiting Palm Springs. The completely remodeled home allows for great entertaining and relaxation - both inside and out. Located in the mid-century modern oasis of Sunmor Estates in the wind-free side of Palm Springs, Alexander Escape is a testament to the late 50’s and early 60’s with its decor, furnishings and open floor plan. Located just minutes from the airport and downtown Palm Springs, you’ll have no problem getting around - if you decide to leave the warm and private confines of your home away from home.


The classic open layout of this Alexander home is perfect for entertaining in a group - while maintaining an intimacy that can be enjoyed by just a few. The walls are lined with floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the pool and backyard pavilion, providing a welcoming view with coffee or tea in the morning and a tranquil garden-lighted ambiance in the evening. The recently remodeled chef’s kitchen is fully stocked with every cooking convenience to make your stay easy and care-free. And with the open floor plan, the kitchen can be a focal point of the entertainment throughout the day. A 55” HD flat panel TV, beautiful gas fireplace and comfortable sofas to lounge upon and sip your nightcap provides a nice way to ease into the end of the day.


Alexander Escape is a well-appointed three bedroom home, with all three rooms near the back of the house for peace and quiet throughout your stay.

The Master BR is en suite and provides direct access to the pool area with a king sized bed, remote controlled ceiling fans, 38” flat panel TV and new premium 5-star quality mattresses and linens. The second bedroom also has a king sized bed, new mattress and linens, 38” flat panel TV and remote control ceiling fan. The last bedroom sleeps two in a twin beds - and can double as a stylish work-station/office, if need be. Bright airy windows provide views up to the mountains. Each room is unique in its style and provides comfort and tranquility away from the rest of the house if needed.


If your idea of peace of mind is having to decide if you want to go out into the sun and pool, or be inside next to the sliding doors and experience the weather - while basking in an air conditioned room….you’ve chosen the right place.

The back wall of the living room and kitchen areas of the house are sliding glass doors and floor to ceiling windows. On the other side of those windows and doors sit your chlorine-free, salt water pool, day or night spa, natural gas grill, lounge chairs, dining table and lush lawn. In the evening, the gas fire pit, the lighted pool and the lighted cactus and ficus trees provide the perfect way to end your day. Dining al fresco or just taking an evening dip in the heated pool pretty much sums up what your Palm Springs vacation should be.

When choosing your Palm Springs vacation home - we trust you are looking for a relaxing, entertaining, chock-full of amenities, clean and well-furnished modern home. If so, you've found what you're looking for at Alexander Escape.

About Jonathan Mayo and Glenn Pineda

Two guys and two dogs. We love to share our home and love for travel. We purchased Alexander Escape as a place for us to get away from the grind of San Francisco and work; and chose to share the oasis with others who want (and need) to do the same. We love food; wine and travel. Plus a good 8-hour day by the pool!

Why Jonathan Mayo and Glenn Pineda chose Sunmor

This 1958 Krisel-designed, Alexander-constructed home epitomizes what we love: simple, clean, modern and comfortable. It's close to the airport; in the non-windy part of Palm Springs; close to downtown; and comfortable to entertain or just nap.

Wonderful in all respects

  • 5 of 5

6 of us came to celebrate my wife's birthday -- 4 adults and 2 kids. We were looking for a home with a great indoor/outdoor set up and this place totally delivered. Perfect for a weekend centered around eating and swimming and lounging. We honestly didn't want to leave. The pool was the perfect size (and temperature). The hot tub was great. The beds are really comfortable -- we all slept well! Ric, the property manager, was kind and responsive. Really no complaints at all. Loved this place and had a great time. Hope to return. P.S., try Over the Rainbow, a nearby cupcake place. Their cupcakes were amazing.

Perfect stay

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay at the Alexander Escape was above our expectations. From the quick follow up done by Jonathan to answer our questions at the time of the booking through the check in/check out process, we had a complete stress free experience. The house was very comfortable but the backyard with the heated pool and hot tub is where this property truly shines. Our new favourite happy place

Can't wait to go back

Girls trip

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home. The beds were comfortable and the house was great. We spent a lot of time in the back in the pool and using the fireplace. I would definitely rent this home again. It is centrally located so it was easy to get to everything.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised. We were met by the management staff on arrival without any difficulty. It was wonderful to have a home that is welcoming to pets! FYI for other renters with pets, the back gate is secure but my 10 lbs dog decided to slip the through the bars and visit the roundabout. Once we placed something to block it all was well! The pool and spa are nicely maintained and it is where we spent the bulk of our time. The wind sails over the hot but are lovely and so practical! The kitchen has all the necessary items to prepare full meals. Lastly, the home is walking distance to the airport but you would never know it. My wife had to travel while we were there and it was so easy. Not once were we bothered by plane traffic noise. This is a lovely, well ,maintained home that I would enjoy staying at again!
