Read the Reviews! Guests love this place. Fabulous Mid Mod remodel where its all about relaxing in the sunshine. Stunning Palm Springs Vacation Home Rental - 3 BR, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6. Mountain views. Very private yard w heated inground pool/spa, waterfall, fire pit lounge, outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower, al fresco dining.

Welcome to The Aperture, where the art of photography meets iconic mid-century architecture - creating a gorgeous vacation paradise in true Palm Springs-style. This classic Alexander home (circa 1960) has been lovingly restored - respecting its architectural pedigree while updating it for the way we live today. The original polished concrete floors and post and beam ceilings have been preserved while adding modern conveniences like all new kitchen and baths, high speed internet access, updated heating and cooling, and four flat screen televisions.

THE LIVING SPACES
Gorgeous in its simplicity, as Mr. Alexander and his architects Palmer and Krisel intended, you'll find clean lines, an open concept floor plan and spectacular walls of glass that let the light pour in and reveal a stunning country club backyard. The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open to each other - providing enough space for your entire group to gather, relax and enjoy. There is also a separate media room / den for watching a movie or quiet conversation. The entire back of the house features floor to ceiling sliding glass doors - seamlessly connecting to the pool, patio and outdoor living spaces.

SLEEPING QUARTERS
All of the bedrooms feature comfortable hotel-quality mattresses, ample storage, and flat screen televisions.The master bedroom offers a king-sized bed, an en suite bath, and a private courtyard with direct pool access. The two queen guest rooms each have ample storage and share a bath.

THE BACKYARD
This property captures the magic of Southern California glamour. The convenient city location is softened by privacy walls, mature plantings, towering palms, water features and gorgeous landscaping that is drought-conscious and lush at the same time.

The backyard itself is heavenly. So private, spacious and well-planned. The inground pool is gorgeous with its soft-blue pebble tec surface, built-in tanning shelf, integrated spa and spectacular waterfall. The outdoor kitchen with its built-in gas barbecue is adjacent to the alfresco dining area. There is a sprawling synthetic lawn - great for kids, pets and lawn games. You'll also find an amazing firepit chat area, an outdoor shower and absolutely stunning mountain views.

Recent Reviews About This Property

A wonderful surprise!

"When we first arrived the house seems a bit exposed. It's on the corner of a fairly busy street. However the second we walked in the front door it was a complete sanctuary! They have meticulously renovated this home, installing sound-proof windows and doors, a gorgeous kitchen, and an incredible back yard. The pool and hot tub are perfect. Both heat up in no time. The views are incredible. I am very excited to come back to this house very, very soon! "

Daniel C. from Los Angeles, CA, 12/10/2016

Spectacular

"This review can be summarized in two words: Stay here! The house is designed to meet every comfort and need and beyond that, it is stunning. The backyard is unbelievable-the pictures don't do it justice. Normally, I am not one to spend much time at my lodgings on trips, however, staying at the Aperture was different. I did not want to leave the backyard! It was beyond relaxing. In addition, everything was easy and quick to get to, including downtown Palm Springs. You will not regret staying here-it is the perfect home base for getting away from the stresses of your life."

Nicole C. from Iowa City, IA, 12/05/2016

Excellent Palm Springs Experience

"We greatly enjoyed our time at the Aperture House. The house is conveniently located to downtown and has every amenity you could ask for. Its a perfect base camp for exploring but also has unique character that makes it worthwhile to sit back and relax at the house. The pool/hot tub and back patio were highlights. We would definitely stay again!"

Ben D. from Chicago, 12/05/2016

September 2016 Stay

"Wow, what an amazing house! It was the perfect setting for a relaxing weekend. The property owner and managers are all very friendly, and the property is in a perfect location between downtown and local stores. We will absolutely be staying here again!"

Andrew R. from Laguna Hills, CA, 09/12/2016

Beautiful and spacious.

"The Aperture was a great place for us (my wife and I plus our two teenage girls) to stay. The house was decorated with style that reflected the area, was comfortable and had enough space, so that during the hottest part of the day, we could be inside, but not on top of each other. A house manual was provide which covered everything we needed to know. The house was clean and easy to keep. We had a problem with an electrical fuse which the agents dealt with quickly and efficiently. Outside, the garden was beautiful with the background of the hills and the foreground of a thoughtfully planned and stylish garden. The only downside was the closeness of the house to the road. In the morning we were woken by traffic. Would be go again? Yes."

Mike T. from Wokingham, United Kingdom , 07/21/2016

In a word, Incredible!

"The house was incredible! It was everything we expected and more. The house looked like it would give a better Palm Springs experience, and we weren't wrong. We loved the ease of getting into the property, and the instruction manual was a great help. The backyard of The Aperture was incredible, and the efficiency of the space in the house was surprising. Every square inch was so well thought out. When we come back to Palm Springs, we will stay here. "

A great couples getaway!

"We take a couples trip to Palm Springs every late Spring / early Summer and found The Aperture to be an AWESOME home with all the amenities you'd desire for a Palm Springs visit and also a very short cab ride from down town for pool parties, restaurants, casinos, etc. visits. The management team is also very reactive and attentive during your stay outlining exactly what you need to do on check in / out and in communicating / responding during your stay."

Brian G. from Venice, CA, 06/19/2016

Excellent in every way!

"Excellent style, cleanliness, and comfort! Excellent overall stay! "

Gregg S. from , 05/13/2016

A great choice!

"Aperture was perfect for my family - myself, my wife and two little girls. It was clean, tasteful and came with everything we needed. We were also pleased with how common sense everything was. Overall, a great little Palm Springs getaway."

Micha W. from Portland, Oregon , 04/17/2016

Perfection!

Guest

"We loved our visit to Palm Springs. The Aperture House had all the luxuries and comforts of a 5 star hotel. I vacationed with teenagers who enjoyed the amazing spa and pool every day. The location was perfect for day sight seeing and dining out. Spending less time in the car gave us more time to relax at this spectacular home. I plan to visit the Aperture House often!"

Lisa H. from Evanston, 04/01/2016

Great Home! Great price!

"Easy rental experience. Simple checkin/checkout process. Best house for the value! Very good style, comfort and overall stay!"

Felt Like Home!

"We loved all the ease, and comforts of home, which made it so much easier to vacation with our children! Loved the absolute beauty of the home! "

Alison D. from Chicago, IL , 01/09/2016

Fantastic!

"The Aperture was the perfect place for a holiday gathering of our bicoastal family. In terms of comfort, amenities, and overall quality, it far surpassed our previous Airbnb experiences. There was ample space for everyone to be together as well as individual places (the spa, tv room, even the kitchen island) for smaller clusters to enjoy themselves. We were particularly impressed by the thought that went into the house design and decor, creating an internal environment comparable to the natural beauty surrounding Palm Springs."

Howard . from New York, NY, 01/03/2016

Loved the vibe!

"Great amenities, location & excellent maintenance/service! The best part was the pool & jacuzzi! We had an issue with the TV and the service man came and helped us within 30 minutes!! Great service!! No surprises, and everything was excellent!"

Linda S. from Los Angeles, CA, 11/28/2015
Manager Response: We were so glad to have you Linda. You were such a pleasant guest. We will welcome you back anytime. Glad we were able to clear up the TV glitch quickly for you. Don't forget to use your Past Guest Discount when you make your next reservation.

Overall excellent experience!

"We loved staying at The Aperture. The yard and pool were amazing! ACME House Co. was great to deal with and quickly answered any questions we had. We had a wonderful time, and will be back."

Erica . from Irvine, CA, 09/27/2015

A Five Star Stay!

"The Aperture is a professionally managed, gorgeous, Mid-Century pristine find in a fabulous setting. We stayed at hotels before in Palm Springs, but the experience cannot even compare- having a five star property all for your own. Fantastic house! "

Anca . from San Rafael, California, 09/07/2015

We'll Be Back!

"We had such a great experience with both ACME House Co., and the Aperature Rental. The property was wonderful, and the house had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing weekend in the desert. We will definitely come back!"

Derek . from Los Angeles, CA, 09/07/2015

Thoughtful, nice touches!

"Our stay at The Aperture was amazing. The house was beautifully appointed -- the hosts thought of everything! The pool and spa were showstoppers -- wonderfully taken care of, and it was a great outdoor space. We had a slight problem with the spa and the house management team was quick to respond and make repairs. The decor/design of the home made for a relaxing stay, and all of us enjoyed ourselves. The outdoor space was thoughtfully set-up with different areas for lounging, eating and relaxing. "

Andrea . from Lemont, Illinois, 08/23/2015

Fabulous house, and family time!

"In terms of comfort, amenities and overall quality, our stay at The Aperture was far superior to any previous vacation rental experience. The Aperture provided the perfect setting and set-up for a gathering for our bicoastal family on a holiday week. Enough space for six adults and one baby to spend time comfortably together combined with spaces (the hot tub, the tv room, even the kitchen island) for smaller groups to hang out. "

Howard J. from New York, NY, 08/21/2015
Manager Response: Thanks for the feedback Howard. We love hearing form our New York contingency. Now that Jet Blue and Virgin Air have started their direct New York to Palm Springs route again - you folks need to come back again to escape your east coast winter weather. Don't forget to use your past guest discount when you return!

Great Home, Great location!

"We loved the house! The best part was the house and pool. I was surprised how fast the time flew by! Excellent overall stay and I would highly recommend! "

Megan Y. from Los Angeles, CA, 08/16/2015

Clean, comfortable, gorgeous.

"This place is super swanky. We do the vacation home rental thing all over the country. Honestly, no one does it like Acme. We have stayed in their properties nearly a dozen times over the past few years. They have it down and really know how to take care of their guests. We chose this property mainly because it was available at the last minute - but we will definitely return. The Aperture ranked high on the cool Palm Springs vibe meter. Clean, comfortable, gorgeous. The art was amazing. "

Nancy M. from Los Angeles, CA, 07/16/2015

Excellent in every way!

"The location was close to the the stores and the house was spacious. The best part was the pool. We were surprised by the cleanliness. Excellent overall stay."

Germine A. from Tujunga, CA, 07/08/2015

Fantastic Vacation Rental....

"I stayed here for a weekend with some friends and fell in love with this house. From the kitchen utensils and bath towels to the open floor plan, every detail has been thought of. The house is beautifully and artfully decorated and very comfortable to live in. It's conveniently located within walking distance of the main shopping/dining area, but we found ourselves wanting to stay at the house instead. The outdoor patio/pool area is gorgeous and we lived outside more than inside. The pool and hot tub are gorgeous and the backyard feels very secluded and private. Plenty of patio furniture and very comfortable lounge chairs by the pool - there's even an outdoor shower near the master bedroom. The bathrooms are modern with showers that feel like a spa - rainfall shower heads. We all slept wonderfully and the beds/and bedding are very comfortable. We will definitely come back!"

Stephanie S. from Oakland, 05/04/2015

BEST TRIP EVER!!

"We had an amazing getaway to the desert! Everything was better than any rental home I've ever stayed in. This is wonderful house and we can’t wait to return! All the members of our group want to convey heartfelt thanks for the care and detail you take with your home. The house is beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. The back yard pool area is stylish and comfortable. The Aperture house is magical. "

Becca S. from new York City, 04/20/2015

Perfect!

"If you're looking for the best of Palm Springs--great design, desert beauty, lavish details--with none of the kitch, the Aperture House is just perfect. I stayed here with 5 girlfriends for a long weekend get away. We're all mom's. We all work and are all busy. So when we do find a weekend that we can all get away together, we need it to be worth all the effort (and the money) :) From the second we walked in, we knew we'd found what we were looking for. If you're an art enthusiast, this is the place for you. If you really appreciate attention to detail, you won't be disappointed. If what you need is privacy and quiet in an exquisite setting, you'll have found your answer. The walls around the yard make it absolutely private. The salt water pool and spa (with colored lights and a waterfall that you operate from an ipad) are really beautiful. Sliding glass doors to the back yard open all the way up making the space the ultimate inside/outside experience. Even the movies and books stashed in the TV area have been thoughtfully curated, offering excellent entertainment. There is no place I'd rather sit at night with my friends, quietly watching the night sky for falling stars, than from the spa in the backyard of The Apeture House. "

Kirsten D. from Alameda, CA, 02/16/2015

Complete Bliss

" I enjoyed a long weekend with several girlfriends and was truly blissed out from the moment of arrival. I wish I could give this incredible home 10 stars. Seriously, it's that good. So incredibly serene, open, airy and yet totally private. The first thing we did upon our nighttime arrival was turn on the groovy pool lights and waterfall and enjoy a swim in the amazing salt water pool (no chlorine, hooray!) and then a soak in the hot tub - so good after the long car ride. Everything you could need in the kitchen was provided; beds and bedding were luxuriously comfortable; and the towels were big, soft and plush. The attention to detail was incredible and the photography on displayed was impressive, to say the least. We spent countless hours around the pool simply reading, chatting, eating, swimming, soaking, repeat. A day trip to nearby Joshua Tree was beautiful and awe-inspiring, but we would have been just as happy to never leave the house. All we kept thinking was "Why don't we do this more often?" and "When can we come back?" We plan to make it an annual trip, and I want to bring my husband for a romantic getaway sometime, as well. Just perfect."

Suzy C. from Alameda, CA, 02/09/2015

Chic, modern and serene

"Thinking back on my stay at Aperture house still makes me smile. The house is centrally located close to Downtown Palm Springs, and it is an amazing place to spend a long weekend getaway: beautifully decorated, thoughtfully equipped (from a well-stocked , functional kitchen to cozy towels) and full of inspiring pieces of art and photography. Aperture house exudes just the right mixture of vintage modern elegance and relaxed Zen. Whether you are looking to lounge by the beautiful pool, enjoy a movie from the well-put-together library, take in the gorgeous view of the mountains in the ever-changing and beautiful light from the backyard, or flip through one of the great coffee-table books to learn a bit more about the photographs that adorn the walls...you will have a hard time leaving the house. The gathering spaces (kitchen, living room and den) all offer views of the beautifully landscaped and private backyard and pool through wall-to-wall glass doors, and the modern gas fireplace makes for cozy evenings with friends. You can tell that the owners put a lot of thoughtful loving care into every last detail, and my stay here was nothing short of amazing. In fact, I am already daydreaming of my next visit ..."
