About the property

P.S City ID #649 | Primary renter must be at least 25 years of age

This designer property pays homage to tennis royalty, and the long-standing tradition of tennis in Palm Springs. Gussie’s Place, named after Gussie Moran, the “Anna Kournikova” of the 1940’s/50’s, is perfect for small families and groups traveling together. Mature landscaping gives this backyard ultimate privacy complete with a saltwater pool and spa, fire pit, covered al fresco dining, and mountain views. Want to venture out? Walk to Ruth Hardy Park a few blocks away followed by a short stroll to Palm Canyon Drive for brunch. Beds: K,Q.

The backyard of this property is the place to be, with its beautifully lit swimming pool and spillover spa, shaded lounge areas (both covered and open), outdoor shower, and inviting fire pit. Float in the pool or relax on the deck and look out at this home’s stunning mountain views.

There’s no shortage of entertainment here—those seeking a little exercise or competition will get hours of fun out of the covered outdoor rec area with ping pong table, cornhole set, yoga mats, and tennis gear. Feel like playing a game of tennis? Channel your inner Gussie and take advantage of the house’s tennis balls and racquets while playing on the neighborhood courts just a few blocks away at Ruth Hardy Park.

** 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 **

Enter into an open-concept great room that includes a skylit kitchen with marble waterfall island (you’ll find seating for 4 at the kitchen bar), gas range and oven, stainless steel French door refrigerator and dishwasher, and oversized farm-style apron sink. This area is convenient to the cozy dining nook with seating for 4. Take a glance around the room and you’ll notice art that highlights Palm Springs’ storied tennis history, including photographs of Gussie herself. This space also has a turntable and bar area: everything you need for setting any mood you desire.

The sunny living/lounge area boasts direct access to the backyard and pool, and is tastefully decorated in a style that is a nod to both mid-century modern and contemporary cool. This space has a flat-screen TV—perfect for movie night—as well as a pull out sofa, and a small office area for getting that bit of work or writing done.

This property sleeps 4 guests between 2 bedrooms. In the primary suite, find a king-size bed and flat-screen TV, backyard access via sliding doors, and a full en-suite bathroom with tiled walk-in shower. The 2nd bedroom, equally as bright and contemporary, has a queen size bed, flat-screen, and backyard access. This bedroom makes use of the full bath just outside its door, with tiled walk-in shower.

Located in the historic Movie Colony East neighborhood, this property is just blocks from the house Frank Sinatra called home in Palm Springs, a 13-minute walk or 3-minute drive to the tennis courts at Ruth Hardy Park, and just a few houses down from the Palm Springs Citywide bike loop. World-famous Palm Canyon Drive, home to excellent shopping, dining, and people-watching, is just a mile from the front door. And the casino, convention center, and world-class golf, tennis, and hiking trails are all within a short drive.

Loved, loved, loved this house! It was everything we were looking for. Priced well, spotless, very well stocked, comfortable beds and furniture, lovely pool and outdoor areas. Added bonus to have a ping pong table and tennis equipment!! Great neighborhood for walks, easy to walk downtown or to grocery store. Acme was wonderful to work with. Very professional and expedient. Definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again!

5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Gussie’s Place! The house was just like it is described. We really enjoyed the backyard - very private and perfect for soaking up the Palm Springs sun! We had a lot of fun with the record player in the evenings and had some lovely dinners in. Both days we walked to nearby Ruth Hardy Park and our kids had a lot of fun on the playground. The house even had tennis racquets we could use at the park. We will definitely be back to stay at Gussie’s Place!
