Palm Springs – The latest trend in Palm Springs tourism indicates that ping pong tables, billiards and bocce ball courts have become very popular among travelers who rent vacation homes in the desert. While beautiful weather is still the main attraction, visitors who rent vacation homes in Palm Springs place great value on a growing list of toys and recreational extras when selecting their accommodations.
Travelers are choosing properties that offer the feel of a mini-resort, according to Acme House Co.’s Reservations Manager Ken Hudnall, who welcomes more than 400 guests per week to the company’s Palm Springs Vacation Rental Homes.
“Heated pools, spas, and great outdoor dining spaces are now considered standard for a successful vacation rental home,” said Hudnall. “It’s the extras like lawn darts, volleyball nets, corn hole games, and fun pool floats that add to a property’s popularity. Our guests are here to play and they love the games and toys. But it is nice to know that good old-fashioned conversation is still a priority. That is why the number one requested amenity is a fire feature. Evenings spent sitting around the “camp fire” and chatting is still an important part of our guest stays. ”
One of the newest additions to Acme House Co.’s portfolio of Vacation Rental homes is named Mad Men in the Desert where mid-century architecture meets striking retro design and modern luxury. The vintage home has been completely remodeled, updated and reimagined for today. Fans of the TV show Mad Men will feel as though they stepped onto the set for the episodes when Don Draper traveled to hip Southern California circa 1968-69.
The ultra chic, super swank and very very mod four-bedroom vacation rental home offers a free-form saltwater pool, a spa, a fire pit, illuminated corn hole, and a covered outdoor bar area with dining for eight, ping pong and billiards. It’s easy to imagine Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack using this as their desert hideaway – sipping martinis at the bar and soaking up some rays by the pool.
A recent guest review reported: “We had a blast at the Mad Men in the Desert property. It was a smooth experience from start to finish. The property is beautiful, even better than the photos! It was obvious that a lot of care had been taken for our stay. Sparkling clean rooms, fully stocked with linens, board games, books, DVDs, hair dryers, etc. – all we had to do was bring our own food & beverages.”
