Welcome to La Joya Moderna - the Modern Jewel. This iconic home (designed in 1959 by William Krisel, AIA for the legendary Alexander Construction Company) captures the swank and sophisticated vibe of Palm Springs yesteryear while being very "next century" at the same time. The extensive remodel respected the architectural pedigree while updating it for the way we live today - fabulous new kitchen, spa-like baths, high-performance climate control system, hi speed internet service, five flat screen televisions, and all the amenities you expect in an estate property. La Joya Moderna is livable luxury.

This property captures the magic of Southern California glamour. The mountain views are spectacular and the pool yard itself is heavenly. So private, spacious and well-planned. The inground pool and spa is surrounded by chaise lounges, shade umbrellas, alfresco dining, a plumbed barbecue so you’ll never have to worry about the tank going dry, a fire feature plus occasional seating. On the other side of the house is an additional outdoor living plaza that takes full advantage of the gorgeous sunsets over the San Jacinto Mountains.

** 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 **

Gorgeous in its simplicity, as Mr. Alexander intended, you'll find clean lines, an open concept floor plan, post and beam ceilings, clerestory windows and large glass sliders that let the light pour in. The living room, dining area and kitchen are all open to each other - providing enough space for your entire group to gather, relax and enjoy. From here there is easy access to the private pool yard - blurring the lines between indoor-outdoor living.

The fully stocked chef’s kitchen has been carefully space planned for both individual and group meal prep. The interior dining space accommodates 8 guests and is open to the living room with its fireplace, large flat screen TV and ample seating. There is an additional gathering lounge on the other side of the house that has everything you’ll need for spending quality time with your friends and family - a Smart TV for streaming your favorite programs, a game table, a workstation and plenty of very comfortable seating. This room opens up to the West-facing plaza - with its gorgeous sunset mountain views, firepit lounge, and lots of occasional seating.

All of the bedrooms feature comfortable hotel-quality mattresses, ample storage, and flat screen televisions.The master suite has a king-sized bed, a huge walk-in closet, and a private bath with dual vanities and an oversized double rainhead shower. The annexed bonus room directly off the master serves as a great napping cabana as it leads out to the pool area. The two king guest rooms each have easy access to a full bath. Guests appreciate the 3/3.5 bedroom/bath ratio that gives everyone privacy. None of the bedrooms have to share a bath. And one of the guest rooms offers the flexible choice of being set up as a king or two twins.

Vista Las Palmas is a quintessential mid-century modern neighborhood. You’ll be just a short stroll from the world-famous Palm Canyon Drive as it passes through the Uptown Design District. You will be just a little more than a half-mile from fabulous fine dining, upscale boutiques and specialty shops, art galleries and furniture showrooms, mid-mod consignment shops, and live performance venues.

Elegantly designed house in best neighborhood, close to main street. Patios on both sides to catch the sun, very close to the mountains. A perfect stay for six people.

Beautiful and Cozy Home

5 of 5

I’m not sure if I can say enough about this home! We came to Palm Springs for a quick winter getaway and we barely wanted to leave the house!! It’s beautiful, it’s exactly how the pictures show. The Master suite is beautiful and the pictures don’t do it justice. The kitchen…wow, every gadget possible is available for your use. The pool and hot tub was great to relax in. The neighbourhood is close enough to downtown to walk or drive depending on how you’re feeling. And ACME was amazing to deal with. We had a couple bumps along the way but they were on top of things and rectified those issues immediately. I would definitely use them again!

The house is beautiful and in a beautiful neighborhood

5 of 5

The house is beautiful and in a beautiful neighborhood. It's lovely to walk around and look at the architecture. The walk to the main strip is about 15 minutes. We had an issue with the hot tub heater but Acme was immediately responsive and worked quickly to resolve it. Everything was exactly as pictured in the photos. Be aware that Palm Springs has strict rules about noise so don't plan to play music outdoors at any time. We planned a more relaxing and peaceful vacation and this place was perfect. I'd stay here again or at any property managed by Acme.

This house is beautiful and comfortable. It does not feel like a rental because a lot of thought was put into all the furniture and decorations. We enjoyed the inside as well as the pool and also the fact that it is close to a lot of good restaurants and shops. Would love to stay here again soon!

Dream Stay

I had the pleasure of staying at La Joya Moderna in April of 2021. What an amazing time my family had staying here. The house is beautiful, masterfully decorated, and has everything you would want/need for a fantastic stay. We were so comfortable in every way. The house is in a wonderful neighborhood with access to restaurants and shopping. What we loved most were the pool, jacuzzi, and the mountain views. We had hoped to go for a quiet, recuperative vacation and this was the perfect place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the beauty of Palm Springs. I highly recommend this this gorgeous home!

This is an all-around super house! It's incredibly spacious and bright, with nice high ceilings, and everything feels so fresh and clean. The pool and hot tub are lovely, and there is a lot of privacy in the outdoor areas. The house is located in a tony neighborhood of Palm Springs and it's very convenient to downtown markets, restaurants, etc. We appreciated how uncomplicated the check-in and check-out processes were; our limited interaction with Acme went smoothly -- their staff are all friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic visit, and look forward to returning.

Overall Comment This is a lovely house in our favorite neighborhood. Comfortable beds, two living areas, well stocked kitchen and nice bathrooms. Everything looks well taken care of or recently remodeled. There are nice views of the mountains and plenty of outdoor space. The pool was really warm which is nice with the cool mornings and evenings you experience in March. We would definitely recommend.

Great House, Great Neighborhood

5 of 5

Beautiful house! After much hand-wringing and Covid testing, we got to see our family members for the first time in a year — and what a beautiful house! Beautifully decorated, great location, we loved it. One more thing: a strong windstorm knocked out the power the Saturday night we were there, which was a bit scary for the older members of our family. But the gentleman from across the street came over, knocked on the window, waved and left a bunch of glow sticks and a note to knock on his door if we needed anything. Wow. It was incredibly nice!

Overall Comment We love Vista Las Palmas - it's quiet, wonderful for walking, biking, etc. Close to fabulous coffee houses and shops. Anything you could possible want or need was available in the kitchen and the house was easy to keep clean and tidy - just the right amount of furniture and fabric. Acme was responsive and helpful when we needed them.

A really great stay and well-located if you are into midcentury architecture. Acme was extremely fast to response to some issues with the house and pool, but everything after that was great. Keep in mind that Palm Springs has some particular noise ordinances, so just make sure you are aware of those. Highly recommend for a peaceful getaway in a historic neighborhood!

Overall Comment Well located, beautifully renovated, lots of space! Reasonably priced for the location and size. would definitely rent again. Three areas for improvement would make it even better: 1. Update the pool area with better outdoor furniture and re-paint the pool. 2. Allow guests to use the Front door, rather than the garage (or give guests a garage door opener). 3. Check the A/C in the master bedroom which was either too hot or too cold.

Midcentury Gem

Overall Comment My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at La Joya Moderna. The property was every bit as beautiful in person as in the photos. The home was welcoming from the moment we arrived, with music playing and lights on, to show off the property as it was meant to be seen. The kitchen was a joy to cook in, and the grill was easy to operate, and sparkling clean. The neighborhood is a peaceful, high end residential area, and we loved walking up to the coffee shops on Palm Canyon Drive in the mornings. ACME was very professional and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend both the property and ACME rentals, and would stay at the property again in a heartbeat! I feel that I should mention that the bedroom shades are not room darkening, and the sun is intense first thing in the morning. If you do not wish to wake up with the sun, bring your sleep mask!

Where do I begin? The house was ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Palm Springs chic! Every detail was perfection. The bed linens and pillows were luxurious. The house is set against a beautiful mountain range -- super quiet. We all slept like babies! Both yards were perfect for entertaining. The pool, with sparkling clean water, was refreshing. The kitchen had every single item you will ever need. Two living rooms, completely decorated to 70's retro fabulous were great for our family to spread out and we played all the games that were in the game room. We could walk to town and enjoyed lunch at Azucar -- right around the corner! It was the perfect getaway and we can't wait to come back!!

Overall Comment The house is gorgeous inside and out. Great location and very well appointed with everything you will need to have an amazing vacation. Bathrooms and bedrooms are great size and comfortable. Kitchen is amazing as are the two living rooms!! The pool area is great but could use a pergola type area outside to get a break from the sunshine. Lots of seating areas on both patios. The only negatives were that a few things weren’t working including the bar/wine fridge, the garage door keypad to use the garage but these were minor issues. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and just might again next year!

Overall Comment Just returned from a week at La Joya Moderna, which was every bit as wonderful as depicted in the photos. Spacious rooms, great layout, wonderful outdoor space. The home is the best of a number of homes we've rented in Palm Springs. Really quite perfect for those who love mid-century architecture with modern amenities, and the beautiful Vista Las Palmas neighborhood. Acme is also the best property management we've dealt with in Palm Springs. They were responsive and professional. The property handbook could not have been more detailed or helpful. We will definitely book with them next time. Hopefully at La Joya Moderna.

I would like to provide you with some feedback on your new Regal property. Please forward this to the property owners of La Joya Moderna. First, I want to compliment Acme for tremendous service. This is the 2nd time we have stayed at one of your properties. I amazed at the prompt responses to questions or request for assistance. I had the pleasure of meeting most of your team as I am considering purchasing a home in Palm Springs and partnering with your company for short term rentals. In particular, and related to my most recent stay, I want to thank your branding person JP. When we arrived this year, we had a few logistical challenges that were promptly taken care of. I recall one of the first things J.P. said was We aim to not only assist you with your issue but to make it better than you would have imagined. He really came through and made this one of the best vacations we have ever had. As for the Regal, my first comment is WOW! These homeowners really hit the mark. Every day I was in the home I came across something else that was beyond my expectations. The interior design was bang on and the home was super comfortable. There isn't a thing I would change or add to this property. Everything was impeccable, the showers, appliances, furniture, pictures on the wall, flooring, dishes, counter space, choice of tiles...you get the point. The pool area was private and spectacular with an amazing variety of seating and lounging areas. This is how I would design a Palm Springs

We had an absolutely perfect stay at La Joya Moderna! Recently renovated and pretty much immaculate, it has everything you'd need: lots of space, indoors and out, beautiful amenities, privacy, and a short walk into town. We spent most of our time by the pool to be honest, mostly because it was just pretty hard to leave: perfect temperature, comfy chairs, and the hot tub is fantastic. The modern kitchen is great for cooking, and is ideal for hosting. Plenty of room for a larger group, but really nice for something more intimate as well. Can't wait to visit again!
