Palm Springs Vacation Rental with that hip midcentury vibe. Gorgeous spacious condo - 1 bedroom 2 bath - sleeps 4 comfortably. Totally remodeled. Great location in a private, gated, historic, architectural community.

Welcome to our mid-century oasis at the Racquet Club Garden Villas in Palm Springs. We invite you to book a stay with us and enjoy the best of Palm Springs!

This gated, historically-designated complex of 37 units was designed in 1959 by preeminent desert architect William F. Cody FAIA, in collaboration with renowned landscape architect Philip A. Shipley who worked with clients such as Clark Gable, Kirk Douglas and Frank Sinatra.

Situated among meandering pathways, streams and palm trees, the historic Racquet Club Garden Villas provides the feeling of a private, lush retreat while being located just minutes from the lively downtown Palm Springs Design District with its new and vintage boutiques, Ernest Coffee, the Bootlegger Tiki Bar, Trina Turk, and numerous opportunities for fine dining, strolling and site-seeing.

Our fully-detached 1,100 square foot unit was completely re-done in mid-2016 to exemplify California modern living. It features an open floor plan, a custom kitchen with premium appliances, walls of glass, three patios, newly-installed landscaping, concrete floors, and breath-taking mountain views from the living and bedrooms. We have filled the home with original mid-century furnishings from designers such as Florence Knoll, Paul McCobb, Mies van der Rohe, Corbusier, Marcel Breuer, and Ray & Charles Eames. Even the dishware is classic vintage!

The gated pool and spa area is large and stunning, surrounded by palm trees and with abundant deck space. It's a great place to sun and swim during the day, or to relax in the spa in the evenings under a blanket of stars.

In addition to the master bedroom which includes a TV and a private patio, there is an additional semi-private sleeping-den area with its own full bathroom, and a Murphy Bed in the living room.

Additional features include:
* Large BBQ grill
* Dozens of books spanning decades of art, photography and literature
* Dual zone Nest heating and air conditioning
* Ample closet space
* Coffee maker, blender, and microwave
* Modernica king bed in master bedroom
* Premium TV package
* Two full bathrooms including a Whirlpool soaking tub
* Bose Blue tooth speaker

A short history of the complex:
From the mid-1930's to the late-1960's, the Palm Springs Racquet Club (now gone to history and located just adjacent to our complex) was the place to be in Palm Springs for the Hollywood glitterati. Truman Capote, Tracy & Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe (photographer Bruno Bernard is credited with first photographing her at the Racquet Club in 1947), Bogart & Bacall, Rock Hudson, Jayne Mansfield, Henry Fonda, Errol Flynn, and Ginger Rogers to name just some, all spent time at the Racquet Club. Expansion of the resort was soon needed which led to the commission of the Racquet Club Garden Villas, which were developed by Paul Trousdale (the developer of Trousdale Estates in Beverly Hills) to provide a private and exclusive hideaway for the show business elite. It is now part of Palm Springs lore.

A Real Gem

"We loved staying in this gorgeous home. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and we enjoyed using the BBQ outside as well. The space is so light and we loved the decor--every detail thought out. We used the lovely pool and hot tub everyday! This place was a perfect spot to unwind and really sink into a vacation. "

A Lovely House!

"We had a lovely time in this house and beyond it's evident style, we marveled at how well organized it was. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks for having us!"

Mihai P. from Foster City, CA , 01/01/2017

Very relaxing experience!

"Modernist Gem was just that. Cozy and stylish mid-century architecture, and the grounds feel like a sanctuary... Quiet, secluded and very relaxing. Favorite things were coffee or drinks on the living room patio, reading on the cow hide lounge chair (there are so many good books there!) cooking in the well-stocked kitchen, and strolling over to the hot tub in the evening. Just beautiful. "

Ron D. from San Francisco, 10/21/2016

Great getaway!

"What an amazing and comfortable space! Stayed at the Modernist Gem during Desert Trip and had such a great time. The vibe is definitely mid-century but it feels very contemporary at the same time. The grounds are private and beautiful, and the pool is totally luxurious. It was a quick drive to our favorite downtown spots. Looking forward to visiting again!"
