About the property

P.S. City ID #1341 | Primary renter must be at least 25 years of age (Proof of age required)

With striking mid-century design, mountain views, and elegantly planned grounds that will make you feel like a bona fide member of the Rat Pack, this property is ideal for families and small groups. Beds: K,K,Q

Escape to your own backyard! This corner lot property boasts a secluded backyard area thanks to its tall well-manicured hedges. From here, float in the saltwater pool or soak in the spillover spa while you gaze meaningfully at the jaw-dropping mountain view. Relax poolside under the sunshine-yellow retro fringed umbrellas—they go perfectly with a sunset-hued cocktail or just a good vacation read. Or, enjoy the side lawn, perfect for playing yard games or letting the dogs run free. In the evening, gather around the fire pit with marshmallows or a glass of rosé.

** The pool will be heated to 83 degrees upon request with an additional service fee. Please let us know if you'd like to heat the pool so we can ensure it is heated before your arrival. Spa heating is included with your rental at no extra cost **
** Please Note: This fee is not included in the quoted price on some booking platforms. **

Enter into an elegant skylit foyer that leads directly into the open living, dining, and kitchen area. You can’t get more Palm Springs than this space’s cool, bright tile and mod white brick fireplace complemented by its wooden beamed ceiling that hints at the natural wonders just beyond the front door. Twin velvet mid-century modern couches create a conversation pit-like experience in the living area, which also includes a large flat-screen TV. Guests can also enjoy an available full cable TV subscription, sonos sound system, along with a record player with curated records just for you!

The open kitchen is outfitted with high-end touches including a full suite of stainless steel appliances. Just off of this space, you’ll find a pantry area/coffee bar with both Keurig and drip coffee makers as well as a wine fridge.

The dining area is the heart of this property and promises many a great meal and conversation around the very mid-century oval dining set with seating for 6. Everything tastes better when dining under a Sputnik chandelier.

** The term "Pets Allowed” or “Pets Accepted" at an ACME House Company vacation rental means that we welcome dogs only. No other pets are allowed. **

This property features 3 bright and beautifully appointed bedrooms all with hotel-quality mattresses. In the primary suite, find a king-size bed and modern en suite bathroom with walk-in shower. This suite enjoys access to the patio and pool through a sliding glass door. Each bedroom is also equipped with a humidifier and sound machine for your comfort.

The two guest bedrooms are just as stylish and have a king and queen bed, respectively. These rooms share access to the full hall bath.

Historic Sunmor Estates, sometimes referred to as the Alexander Neighborhood, contains Palm Springs’ largest concentration of intact mid century modern homes by four iconic mid-century modern builders: Alexander Construction Company, Robert Higgins, Jack Meiselman, and Smith & Rapport. A stay here will take you right back in time to the era of cars with fins and plenty of chrome, the golden age of top 40 radio, and the lawn flamingo. This area is home to the much-loved annual Palm Springs Modernism Week.

A true mid-century experience!

5 of 5

The Mid Century Mood house was a perfect throwback to the mid-century Palm Springs experience, with the updated, modern conveniences. Loved the open floorplan, retro decor, artwork (the record player was a fun touch!). The backyard was private and luxurious. The pool and hot tub were perfect. The grassy side yard was perfect for late afternoon games like cornhole. All in all, a delightful experience that we would be more than happy to return to!

The house is in a quiet neighborhood. The yard was well maintained. House was clean and the furnishings are high quality. The kitchen is well stocked. There was coffee/coffee pods+cream and sugar on check-in. They left a puppy gift pack which was A TERRIFIC TOUCH! The beds and linens were clean, soft and comfortable. There are black-out shades and regular shades. They were specific about pool/yard maintenance crew days and times so no surprises. ACME did a great job hosting us. They were responsive at all hours (even when we had an issue-which they resolved) The house is close to downtown Palm Springs which worked out great for my friends babies nap schedule. A couple of surprises- We could NOT play music outdoors at all-no matter the time of day, even from your phone. The house thermostat is pre-locked to 74 coolest setting. Fine during the day, but 3 menopausal women-torture at night. They remedied that for us the next day. Still a great place to stay and would stay again.

Our family loved our stay

5 of 5

Our family loved our stay, the home was well-appointed, the pool + hot tub were perfect, and we enjoyed playing games in the grass area as well. We have stayed at several homes in the Palm Springs area over the last several years and this was definitely one of our favorites. Also, the proximity of the airport, with very little noise or traffic, is pretty amazing. Highly recommend.

Fabulous Alexander, aka the Mood House is an outstanding AirBnb. But they also go above in beyond with the kind of thoughtful, well-considered well-designed touches that make it unique. Everything was considered and then they went one step further to make it personal and memorable. Well done. And a fabulous stay for everyone in our party. Thank you.

Such a clean, comfortable, quiet, pristine, and relaxing property.

5 of 5

Such a clean, comfortable, quiet, pristine, and relaxing property. We just loved the backyard area with the pool, hot tub, and grill. The house was super clean and thoughtfully furnished with plenty of barware, a shaker and muddler, and plenty of cooking necessities (of which I need many, as I like to cook). The beds were some of the more comfortable I've experienced at an AirBNB. Although this was close to the airport, we never once were disturbed by airport noise. We stayed here mid-March, and the pool was too cold to use (we chose not to heat it and just use the hot tub instead, which took about 20 minutes to heat after turning it on). We would definitely stay here again.

Mid century Mod was the perfect size home with fantastic accomodations. The spa was amazing as was the view from it and the yard! Central location, minutes away from downtown and the airport. The perfect quiet and relaxing winter getaway.

At the top of our list

We've stayed in many houses in Palm Springs, and this one is at the top of the list. It was exactly like the pictures you see online. . .clean, homey, kitschy and well appointed. Check in and check out were easy and we had no problems so didn't need any assistance during our stay. The location was also great, close to all PS has to offer, and we enjoyed a sunset walk around the neighborhood one night.

I Wish I Could Give This Place 10 Stars!

Such a cute Palm Springs property! The decor is a big MOOD and picture perfect. I liked how clean and open the place was, with the best natural light. My girlfriends and I stayed for the weekend and it’s close to downtown with a big driveway for parking! Plus, there’s a big pool and jacuzzi. What more could you ask for? I’ll be coming back forsure!!

By far the best vacation rental I have ever stayed at!

5 of 5

We stayed at the this property and it was by far the best vacation rental I have ever stayed at! The mid century modern interior design was stunning. Every detail of the house was so thoughtfully curated - from the perfectly stocked kitchen, the large selection of vinyl records to play and the amazing pool and backyard toys and games we were left wanting for nothing. Our place was incredibly clean and Acme was very communicative which made the whole experience seamless. We loved the location of the property close to downtown and the airport. We are excited to come back to stay again!
