HIGH STYLE CONCEPT HOUSE CREATED BY NATIONAL BRAND
The West Elm House 2017: The Alexander was an idea house created to inspire and guide architecture and design enthusiasts when it comes to the art of modernizing a midcentury home for the way we live today. It was on tour during Palm Springs Modernism Week 2017 and has been featured in California Homes Magazine. Treat yourself to a vacation in this Living Show Room - the perfect 'Midcentury to Next-Century Transformation' of an iconic 1950s home originally built by the Alexander Construction Company and then remodeled by Solterra Builders. The Design Team from West Elm used their product line of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced sofas, tables, beds, lighting and accessories to furnish this classic home (circa 1958).
THE INTERIOR LIVING SPACES
Absolutely stunning remodel. This property has been lovingly restored - respecting its architectural pedigree while updating it for the way we live today. The renovation preserved the original open concept floor plan, clerestory windows, polished concrete floors and iconic post and beam ceilings - while giving it a completely 'next century' makeover with all new kitchen and baths, hi speed internet access, updated climate control system, 4 Smart Televisions and ipod charging stations. The entire front and back of the house feature movable walls of glass - that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living in true Palm Springs-style.
THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
All of the bedrooms feature ample storage, flat screen televisions and comfortable king-sized mattresses by Casper, the latest in memory foam sleep systems. The master bedroom offers a walk in closet, sitting area, direct pool access and an en suite bath with dual sinks and a deluxe shower that connects to the outdoors. The two king guest rooms feature their own court yards - each with a private firepit lounge area, an outdoor shower, and gorgeous mountain views.
THE OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES
Completely walled for privacy, the entire property feels like an upscale resort with its large concept pool area, outdoor living pavilion, game areas, 5 fire features, 3 outdoor showers, al fresco dining, gas barbecue and poolside chaise lounges. Sophisticated modern style meets 1950s sensibility to create this fabulous outdoor space that certainly has the Wow Factor.
Pool Heating is included in the rental cost, for bookings that are less than 29 nights, from October 15th through April 30th. From May 1st through October 14th, pool heating can be purchased for an additional $50/day.
This spectacular home sits on a quiet residential street in the Little Beverly Hills neighborhood of Palm Springs - an intimate enclave of 84 single family homes - all built by the Alexander Construction Company (w/ a few Meiselmans on the perimeter) between 1957 and 1959. This very retro, picturesque, walkable community is bordered on two sides by a golf course. The emphasis here is on easy living in the sunshine.The hustle and bustle of Palm Springs seems as though it is miles away from this sleepy little part of town - but grocery stores, casual eating places, sandwich shops, burger joints and Downtown Palm Springs are all just blocks away. You can even walk to the Saturday morning Farmers Market or take in an independent film at the local movie house that hosts many of o

"We had a wonderful stay! The house and backyard is perfect. We’d definitely stay again."
"Great home that was well equipped and well stocked by Acme. If you like west elm’s style, you should enjoy this house as it’s been designed by them and includes many of their furnishings. House has a good layout, with comfy beds and good patio space for all. The kitchen and living area aren’t large but have everything you need. Outdoor spaces were great and the generous size of the pool and hot tub were really nice. Would only recommend confirming pool temp prior to arrival as it was cold when we checked in and needed time to warm up. Overall a nice property and easy booking process - highly recommended!"
"This house has many thoughtful spaces that I have not seen anywhere else. Perfect for people gathering for the week but needing some separate outdoor areas depending on their preferred activity."
"In the current pandemic environment, we set a goal of finding a house that, once we arrived, we wouldn't want to leave. The backyard (pool, putting green, bacci court, hammock and numerous seating/hangout areas) and overall layout of the home with separate patio areas for each bedroom exceeded this requirement. It was close to grocery stores and the downtown area for our quick runs out for take out and food supplies. We will definitely be back to this home whenever our travels take us back to Palm Springs. "
"We came here for a work retreat and enjoyed our stay."
"It was a perfect escape from the city. The house has everything you could possibly need and more. I'll definitely be renting this home again and again."
"We very much enjoyed the West Elm house. The house feels newly redone, and it has a great atmosphere, an awesome primary suite, and just enough space to relax inside. Beds were super comfy. The back yard was excellent, with plenty of nice seating and lounge areas, and heaters for cool nights. The pool and hot tub stole the show - really clean and very generous size. Very much recommended!"
Summer of 2020 in Palm Springs
"I am so thankful for Renee!!! I nominate her for employee of the year!!! Grateful that orders were lifted in time for our stay! So many challenges but just as many blessings this year! Much needed family time and also celebrated my grandson’s birthday! Loved the enclosed front courtyard, so spacious. The floor to ceiling windows gave us perfect views of the surrounding mountains. Experienced night swimming when the temperature cooled down. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The FAVORITE feature was the outdoor showers for each room!!! Our first time visiting Palm Springs & booking a stay through ACME and certainly not the last. LOVE LOVE LOVE the decor!!! "
"Outdoor space is excellent. Responsiveness of ACME house was great- they fixed appliances that were malfunctioning and brought us additional soap and other items quickly."
"We absolutely loved everything about our stay at the West Elm: Alexander House. Everything was spotless upon arrival. The property is located in a quiet residential street with minimal noise from neighbors. The yard is designed to get maximum morning and afternoon shade, meaning we could enjoy the yard in the middle of summer with adequate shade. From 3pm the pool is almost entirely shaded which made a big difference for the kids, especially in the peak of summer. The tanning shelf (shallow end) is large enough for younger kids to enjoy and the water feature was very popular. Note that the desert can be drying to kid's skin so bring plenty of moisturizer. Inside, the house has everything you need for cooking and relaxing. Upon arrival, there were four chilled margarita glasses in the freezer - a great touch. The outdoor ice machine was a huge hit for both adults and kids. We used the big outdoor dining table outside on the cooler evenings. If there was one thing we would add to the kitchen it would be an ice cream scoop :-) We had only a few minor issues during our stay, ie. the WiFi played up when we arrived but Acme were quick to remedy this for us. Ditto for some smaller issues such as running out of dish liquid. A bottle was promptly left at our front door. Overall, highly recommend this property and we would stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks ACME!"
"Amazing house. Don’t hesitate to book it."
"We loved this place! So cute! Comfortable beds! Great lounge areas. So much fun! Will def come back! "
Great stay in Palm Springs
"Palm Springs Alexander was very much as advertised. A great place to stay for a family. Just had a few small area that could have been better, but overall it was a great stay and would recommend it for others."
great stay in a great house
"fantastic house in a quiet street. the house has everything you want for a stay with friend or family, very well equiped inside & out. my teenagers said this was the best house we have stayed in EVER. well managed & maintained. we stayed for 4 night & wish it could have been longer."
"Amazing home with plenty of amenities. Nicely remodeling, amazing pool and plenty of things to do to keep you entertained. "
Everything was Perfect
"Cannot say enough good things about West Elm House and the owners. Great location with stunning back drop of the mountains very professional ?meet and greet " the house was exactly as described The biggest plus was the amazing yard and pool We loved the Boules court the putting green and the corn toss Would give this home 5 stars all day long !!"
Better than expected
" The photos did not do justice to this beautiful property. We hated to leave. "
"This house has everything! It's now one of our favorite houses to rent in Palm Springs! There isn't a single thing that needs improvement, unless you're very picky. We will definitely be coming back!"
Better than the pictures!
"We recently stayed at the West Elm House for a family vacation. Upon arrival, we immediately fell in the love with the house.
It was beautifully decorated, wonderful amenities (keurig and water in each room) that went above and beyond, and a great location to downtown. The backyard was amazing with places for kids to play, adults to relax, and the pool and spa were top notch!
The Acme House Company also did a great job in providing help needed with a concierge meeting you upon arrival to make sure you felt comfortable with the house.
We would definitely stay here again!
A fantastic vacation at the West Elm House 2017!
"We have spent 7 wonderful and relaxing days at this beautiful house in Palm Springs! The interior design is spectacular and the outside area with the really big pool, play area, different seating areas did exceed our expectations. The house was spotless and equipped with everything you can think about. We have rented many houses in different places before, but the West Elm house was the BEST! We will definitely recommend it to our friends!"
My 50th Birthday...Sunshine and Mumu's!
"We stayed at The Alexander this last weekend to celebrate my 50th birthday with 5 girlfriends. All I wanted was a worry-free, relaxing and fun weekend away that only consisted of friends, good food, pool time and cocktails. This was a perfect place for that...such a great home and so many awesome areas to hang out that we didn't want to leave. You really need to stay for a week to take full advantage of all that this house has to offer. We were beyond thrilled with every aspect, from our first communications with Camille at Acme to the Concierge service and then everything the home had to offer. I obsessed over looking at 100's of houses and we were all SO happy that we chose The Alexander. We will definitely come back to his home and will definitely use Acme again! Thank you for a fantastic weekend!!! "
Lovely Property and Mgmt Company was Awesome
"The property is fantastic and just as lovely as the pictures. The pool pump went out during our stay and the management company quickly arranged a temp replacement and was wonderful to deal with. Our only “complaint” and I hate to call it that really was with the WiFi - it’s set up more like a hotel where you must enter an email or link to social media to access it and for us a) did not connect most of the time and b) given the upscale nature of the rental was a bit frustrating not to have a private connection. Overall, this is a wonderful home and we would stay again if in Palm Springs."
Amazing stay at the West Elm House
"This home is a wow in every way. Everything I could think of or want was provided for in this house. This home is even more spectacular in person than the photos suggest. It was extremely clean, beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, well maintained and cared for. It was also super close to all our favorite restaurants and an easy drive to the supermarket and Trader Joes.
Acme were amazing to deal with, from start to finish and always available for questions.
This was a 10 in my book and I would book this home again in a heartbeat. "
"We couldn’t have been more pleased with renting this home and the service from Acme House Co.! Every inch of this home was exactly as pictured if not better. The design and decor are stunning. The outdoor spaces were so inviting and relaxing and the pool was fantastic! We spent the majority of our vacation outside in this backyard oasis! My only suggestion would be to have the dining table (or at least a second dining table) out back rather then in the front courtyard. We never used the table in the courtyard due to the sun and wind and it didn’t feel as private, not to mention the distance from the BBQ was a little impractical.
Acme House Co. was fantastic! They were so easy to work with and responded immediately to any issues. They had every detail of our stay covered and even had a small gift waiting for us on our arrival! Thank you for making this a truly wonderful vacation!"
"Loved the place we booked through ACME! Mike our contact was super helpful and always available if we needed anything. Very smooth process. 6 of us stayed and had a very relaxing weekend at their West Elm property in Palm Springs. Outdoor showers in multiple locations, coffee and water in each room (a dream), plus lots of games to keep you entertained. A very well set up holiday rental."
We Loved Our Stay With Acme
"We had a wonderful time at the house we rented from ACME in Palm Springs. The place was exactly as described and wonderfully equipped for a very relaxing and comfortable stay. The house was very clean and well kept. Communication with ACME was very straight forward and easy. I'd definitely come back to them in the future to rent a property in the area."
Loved our stay!
"I had heard of the West Elm house through Modernism Week, and really wanted to stay here. The best part was the outdoor living spaces - we used every bit of it (backyard, front yard, guest room patios, outdoor shower/bath). It immediately felt like home, and we felt like we were well taken care of. Loved it and want to come back to the same house very soon!"
Perfect Anniversary Stay!
"Superb staff, clear communication and responsibilities, great manual in the home, and amazing maintenance people. This home had the style and amenities that was perfect for our 20th anniversary. Best part was the decor. The home is a time machine, yet it has great modern amenities from the recent renovation. "
"Beautiful home! Very accommodating. Excellent service. Nice people. This particular house met all of our desires. Best part was the outdoor space and the pool! The place looked amazing in the photos and was even better in person. "
"We loved this branded house. It was really like living in the coolest furniture showroom ever. We left rested and inspired. And yes - we did go home and immediately give both our guest rooms complete West Elm Makeovers! Now if only we could make our back yard look like the Palm Springs West Elm House! "
Look forward to returning!
"Very good overall stay! The style and decor were excellent, well appointed, and why I picked this property. The best part was the pool and location!"
Excellent All Around!
"ACME House Co. is by far the best property manager in Palm Springs. Your level of service, along with your selection of homes, is outstanding. The best part was the outstanding pool, where we spent most of our waking hours. Had it not been 110 in the shade we might have made better use of the fun outdoor games, and sports offered on the property. Being 3 minutes from the airport was nice. One small. but meaningful improvement could be made by beefing up the internet link to the livingroom TV. An excellent overall experience!"
Incredible Property. Great Vacation.
"We heard from so many others how great this place is. Weren't sure we should believe all the hype. So we had to try it ourselves. And we found out --- The West Elm House is amazing. The entire yard was like a playground for big kids! The pool was just amazing with disco lights, jets and lots of bubbles! The mountain views were stunning. So many different places on property to enjoy cocktails. And all of the furniture - especially the beds - we soooooo comfortable. Wow. Wow. Wow. Worth every penny."
What an experience!
"We really like West Elm and have a lot of pieces in our own home. To stay in this all West Elm House - was such an amazing experience. Comfortable, attractive and super high style. But the best part was the pool. The entire stay was fantastic."
Great Concept House
"We had a great time staying in this very cool idea house by West Elm. We are big fans of everything Willams Sonoma and its sister brands do ---- so we were over the top impressed by everything about this property. The team at Acme House Company were amazing hosts. We highly recommend staying at The West Elm House when visiting Palm Springs. And yes the pool really does have disco lights and we loved it!"
Great home-Excellent Location-Fabulous Finishes!
"Loved everything about this home. The fire features through out the property add a fun flair. Huge pool and amazing backyard."
The Dream House for Modernists!
"We were absolutely blown away by how gorgeous and comfortable this house was! Walls of glass that gave us stunning views from inside and outside the house. We have always been fans of midcentury architecture and the 1950s homes built by the Alexander Construction Company - but this remodel took it to the next level. Really shows how you can respect the original architecture while creating a very "NOW" space. The decor by West Elm was beautiful, super comfortable and the perfect compliment to the mid mod style of this house."
The Perfect Place for West Elm Fans
"We were among the first lucky guests to stay at this concept home before it debuts on the Palm Springs Modernism Week Tour. It was like a dream and worth every penny. The entire property has been furnished by West Elm in their signature Boho Chic style. It was like living in one of their hip showrooms. So yes the inside was amazing. But the back yard was beyond description. Disco lights in the pool. Huge spa and a tanning deck with nifty air jets that doubled as a safe play space for the little ones. We hung out by one of the 4 different fire features each evening. We have already booked our return trip and can't wait to go back this summer. Thank you Acme House Company and West Elm for creating the perfect Palm Springs Getaway!"
"The space and home are terrific! The architecture of the home, paired with the furnishings from West Elm, make for a perfect marriage of Mid Century Modern. Quiet street, but conveniently located to downtown. Highly recommended for a getaway to Palm Springs"
This property is amazing!!!!
"There is so much to love. The pool, master shower, and private courtyards off of every bedroom makes me wish that this was my house. The open floor plan truly brings the outdoors inside. We love it!"
