Overview

About the property

Architecturally Significant, 5 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home That Sleeps 12 In Style.

You may wonder why there is so little availability and longer stay requirements for the rest of 2017. This is due to a new ordinance in the City of Palm Springs, limiting the number of rentals we can have per year. We are only allowed two more rentals for the rest of 2017 so we have had to require longer stays and the higher rate periods of the year. 2018 will be better so don't forget us if none of the 2017 available dates/requirements work for you.

The original Alexander home was completely renovated in 2001, and extensively re-renovated in 2016. The size was doubled, the luxury was increased and we have created a place of peace, pleasure and privacy to share with you and your family and/or friends.

Think of our house as Alexander Plus! It's mid-century MAH-velous.

This home is a legal Palm Springs Vacation Rental, license #64260000-20019526.

Our Master Oasis, with 38" flat screen TV, and double-sided fireplace offers views of the San Jacinto Mountains from the king-size bed and soaking tub. The tub-room and fireplace are separated from the toilet room and shower by a large walk-in closet. (Really large! "Put your baby in a portable crib" kind of large...)

Adjacent to the Master Suite are two Guest Bedrooms that share a bath. All bedrooms (and the living room) have flat screen TV's and all our baths and beds have 100% cotton sheets and towels. One has a queen sized bed and one a king, and both have ceiling fans.

The 4th bedroom, with its 2 queen-sized beds is on the other side of the house. It is very private: an oasis within an oasis, with its own sliding doors to the pool.

The fifth bedroom is just outside the 3rd bath, and features its own access to the outside, a king size bed and a sitting area.

Separating the bedrooms is a large open living space, where white painted beams and white plank ceiling contributing to the breezy open nature of this space, as do the three ceiling fans!

This great room includes a sitting area (with 65" flat screen TV) and a dining room. At the far end is a full wet bar (sink, refrigerator, wine cooler, cocktail shakers, and stemware galore) as well as a game table for cards (poker chips included), dominoes, and more.

The kitchen is separated from the great room by a 4-person breakfast bar, yet maintains plenty of visual connectivity to the pool, barbecue grill and the main living spaces.

8 lounge chairs line the 35' saltwater pool at our newly updated mid-century modern Alexander home. One end of our side yard is fenced separately from the backyard pool area. The other features easy access to a sandy area perfect for dogs.

The living area spills onto the backyard entertaining area through three sets of wide sliding glass doors that connect the expansive living space to the pool deck.

Down the hall from the kitchen is a full-sized laundry room.

The house is wonderful, we bought it in good shape and with the help of several professionals, we've made it great. We are more than happy to share our love for Palm Springs and for this historically significant house with you.

Please note that by City of Palm Springs law, no more than 12 peoples may stay overnight at the property at any time, no more than 18 persons can be on the property of this vacation rental home at any one time. As we are a licensed vacation rental, we strictly enforce the law. If at anytime you violate either the City Noise Ordinance (posted at the house) or the limit on the number of persons allowed on our property, and we discover it, you will be evicted, and your deposit will be forfeited. If the police discover that you are in violation of either law, you will be responsible for any fines, you will be evicted, and your deposit will be forfeited. Palm Springs takes vacation rental rules VERY SERIOUSLY. No music is allowed outside EVER.

It's Palm Springs, whatever you want is here! The Aerial Tram is a little over a mile away, the Living Desert Zoo (think camel rides) is about 25 minutes east, between those two you can find any activity you want. Highest of high brow activities to lowest of the low, it's fun here for all ages.

There are excellent art museums here, as well as Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, the Palm Springs Air Museum, and tours of the mid-century movie star homes that put Palm Springs on the map OR you can go the other way and tour Elvis's honeymoon cottage or some of the more colorful bars close by! There are dune buggy rentals, mountain bike rentals, and Walt Disney's old stable has been revamped to become an equestrian center called Smoketree. Around the corner is Victoria Park, which is great fun for the youngsters, and the newly renovated Palm Springs dog park!

Note that this is not the house for you if you are coming to Palm Springs to party loudly - unless you intend to do that AWAY from the property. (-:. This is a lovely quiet residential neighborhood - "blissful" says one review...let's keep it that way!
