Welcome to Casa Morongo, a 2957 sq ft luxury vacation rental located in the beautifully eclectic, upscale neighborhood of Tahquitz River Estates. Originally constructed in 1956 for the owner of the famed and iconic Mr. Lyons Restaurant (host to Hollywood luminaries including Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, and Bob Hope), Casa Morongo is a meticulously renovated mid-century modern home on an expansive and fully secluded 14,810 sq ft lot.

Inside, enjoy the luxury of Ligne Roset furnishings and custom lighting by renowned industrial designer Pablo Pardo for Pablo Designs.

The convenient outside kitchen features a BBQ, sink, and elevated counter seating area. Take a soak in the spa and enjoy the outdoor shower, surrounded by an array of over 200 plants, shrubs, and trees - Casa Morongo is truly a one-of-a-kind, private oasis!

** The pool and spa are heated upon request with an additional service fee. Please let us know if you'd like to heat the pool and spa so we can ensure it is heated before your arrival **

As you enter through the bright yellow front door, you’ll be astounded by the light, expansive open-style living room with its high ceilings and colorful mid-century-inspired art (think Pollock and Rothko). Chill on an original (refurbished) Adrian Pearsall sectional sofa, the classic Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman, or the comfy Ligne Roset (modern) Ploum Sofa. There are fun designer touches all throughout the house. In the evening, dim the Pablo lights to create a different allure in each room. The living room and dining room sliding glass doors open to the meticulously landscaped yard, pool, putting green, and spa. The ultra-private Casita Bedroom has a sliding door entrance to the backyard and a large En Suite Bathroom complete with a private door that leads to the outdoor spa. The Primary Bedroom features a walk-in closet, sliders to the backyard, En Suite Bathroom (with a spa tub, separate shower, Jack and Jill Vanity, and door to a private outdoor area under the shade of the gorgeous Bougainvillea archway).

Other guestrooms include the tropically-themed “Jungle Room,” and the 4th corner guestroom has an En Suite Bathroom and sliders that open to the expanse of the front yard with its huge olive trees and mountain-view backdrop. There are smart TVs in all 4 bedrooms, the living room (which also has basic cable), and the Casita (where you can complete your daily fitness routine with various weights, equipment, and yoga mat). The Chef's Kitchen features modern stainless steel appliances, including a double refrigerator, two stoves, a microwave, a 250-bottle wine refrigerator, an ice maker, custom cabinetry, and Caesarstone countertops.

All of the guestrooms feature a comfortable hotel-quality mattress with self-cooling “Snow Technology”, a flatscreen TV, ample storage, and phone chargers. The private Casita Bedroom has a direct backyard and pool access, as does the oversized Primary Bedroom (which has a large walk-in closet, bathroom with a separate jacuzzi tub, and access to a private outdoor area with an arched arbor of Bougainvillea ). There is a second En Suite Guestroom with a Queen bed and a private patio opening to a lovely manicured area with an olive tree for shade. Adjacent is the themed “Jungle Room,” with a Queen bed and easy access to the hall bathroom. On the opposite side of the house, you’ll find an attached Casita with a private front entrance, including a living/workout room. The Casita’s bedroom has a King bed and a large bathroom with direct access to the backyard.

While staying at this property, driving is completely optional as it’s conveniently located in the popular Tahquitz River Estates neighborhood. You'll be less than a half-mile from the world-famous Palm Canyon Drive (check out Arthur Lyons Jr.’s star on the “Walk of Stars”–he was Mr. Lyon’s son & Co-Founder of The Palm Springs Film Noir Festival) and close to both the South Palm Springs Business District and the bustling Downtown area. Grocery stores, fine dining, casual restaurants, nighttime entertainment, & excellent coffee shops are all just a 15-30 minute walk or a quick Uber ride away. The centralized location is perfect for those who want to be close to everything yet completely secluded in a quiet, luxurious sanctuary.

Epic home

5 of 5

Rented the house with some friends, and we ended up not wanting to leave the house lol Everything we needed was just right there! Enjoyed some wine by the firepit after playing mini golf and chilling by the pool through the weekend, what a place! I've never seen a more beautiful well-maintained yard with lemon trees. Everything is super up-to-date and clean, highly suggest, simply: WOW!

Labor Day Weekend Getaway

5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this gorgeous, mid-century modern Palm Springs abode with 5 other friends over Labor Day Weekend. The bedrooms are laid out in different parts of the house with plenty of privacy, perfect for couples and great for families with teens. The interior is furnished stylishly and beautifully decorated with thought put into every little detail. (Check out the collection of rainbow glassware, Boston Terrier art, and the Louis Vuitton bench). The backyard oasis was our favorite part with absolutely everything you need to relax - a large pool with lots of floaties, hot tub, firepit, comfortable seating, shade thanks to well-placed umbrellas, and a grill. There's even a putting green! Trust me when I say you won't want to leave!

I loved staying here during my recent trip to Palm Springs! The house is gorgeous with every amenity you could think of! I especially loved the spacious lush back yard and hot tub. So looking forward to staying here on my next trip back for business.

Gorgeous grounds!

5 of 5

Very comfortable house with absolutely gorgeous grounds - both the front and back yards are lush and filled with multiple plantings. The olive trees at the front entrance provide plenty of afternoon shade and were my favorite quiet spot; enjoying cocktails by the pool here, watching the sun set on the mountains is just heaven. The location is also very convenient for accessing great restaurants and shopping!

Wonderful experience!

5 of 5

My stay at Casa Morongo was the perfect luxury retreat for me to gather with friends. The exceptional layout magically afforded countless places for us us to be together (in the well-appointed kitchen and epic pool bbq area) but space enough to afford everyone their moments of privacy too. Usually I am ready to return home after a vacation, but I could have stayed forever in this thoughtfully designed mid-century haven. I’m looking forward to my next visit.

Dream scape!

5 of 5

I had the most beautiful time at this property! I stayed for 6 days and, found the home decor exquisite. My sleep has not been this peaceful in years. The property's location was very close to the airport and downtown,which was a huge plus. I woke up every morning to birds chirping and, a coffee by the pool. This is a must stay for a Palm Springs vacation and experience. Thank you.
