Welcome to Pineapples and Palms, the perfect vacation home rental for Modernism Purists. Iconic mid-century design (circa 1963) meets a private setting and gorgeous mountain views to create a fabulous pool home. At Pineapples and Palms - it's all about relaxing in the sunshine.
This classic Palm Springs home has been carefully restored - respecting its architectural pedigree while updating it for the way we live today. Much of the original details, including the clean lines, decorative ceramic tile work and brise soleil dividing walls, have been lovingly preserved. The art and furnishings are a high-style mix of authentic period pieces and mid mod-inspired treasures. This home really captures the hip Palm Springs vibe of yesteryear while at the same time being very 'next century.' Four flat screen televisions, high speed internet access, polished concrete floors, remodeled kitchen, and other current conveniences help make this property a favorite among travelers who want the quintessential Palm Springs experience.
THE INTERIOR LIVING SPACES
Gorgeous in its simplicity, this home blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Almost every room opens up to the exterior courtyards and patios - letting the light pour in - and revealing stunning views of the mountains and pool yard. The living room has a comfortable sectional sofa, additional Mid Mod occasional chairs, a flat screen television, and even a record player for spinning vinyl.
The peninsula kitchen was recently updated with quartz counter tops and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. The kitchen is open to the bright and happy interior dining space that seats 6 to 8 guests. The flow of this house is perfect for a group of six people who want to spend time together making new memories.
All of the bedrooms feature comfortable hotel-quality queen size mattresses, flat screen televisions and direct access to the outdoor courtyards. The master bedroom has an en suite bath. The two guest rooms share easy access to the hall bath.
THE OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES
This property captures the magic of Southern California glamour in true Palm Springs-style. Design elements like clean lines, the flat roof, and the architecturally significant decorative block walls - known as brise soleils (French for sun breaker) - add to the property's authentic midcentury appeal. The convenient city location is softened by the home being set back far from the street and the tall mature ficus hedge that wraps around the pool yard.
The backyard itself is a slice of heaven. Spacious, well-planned and just as retro chic as the interiors. The awesome mountain view through the swaying palm tress is pure magic. Chaise lounges, shade umbrellas, a gas barbecue and two separate eating areas surround the heated inground pool and integrated waterfall spa. You are going to love the pool's very long, built-in cocktail bench and the yard's fire pit lounge area. Pineapples and Palms is the kind of welcoming, fun and optimistic vacation home rental that defines Retro Chic in Palm Springs.
OPTIONAL CONCIERGE SERVICES
Private chef, pre-arrival grocery stocking, daily and mid-stay maid service, and poolside massage can be arranged with three weeks advance notice. Advance reservations strongly advised.
