Grand Palm Springs Vacation Home Rental - just a short stroll from the world-famous Palm Canyon Drive as it runs through the Uptown Design District. Spend your vacation in this very private poolside paradise that was once the estate of Sol Lesser - the Academy Award-winning legend who produced Oliver Twist, Peck's Bad Boy and the series of Tarzan films made popular in the 1940s and '50s.
Nearly 3,000 square feet of old world glamour - this stately property captures the sophisticated Palm Springs vibe of yesteryear. The Sol Lesser Estate is both glamorously nostalgic and very "next century." The architectural pedigree (Paul R. Williams) was lovingly preserved when the property was completely remodeled. New kitchen and baths, high speed internet access, five flat screen televisions and an updated climate control system. The owners have combined classic architecture, old world style and modern-day comfort to create a spectacular luxury vacation home in true Palm Springs-style.
THE LIVING SPACES
Built as a celebrity desert escape, this home has a luxurious open floor plan that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living. The great room provides an impressive yet welcoming space to spend time with your entire group. You'll find inside dining for 8 to 10, a fireside lounging area with plenty of seating and a flat screen television. The kitchen and breakfast room has been completely remodeled with beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances - including a six burner gas stove. All along the back of the house are French doors that reveal a romantic pool & yard that looks as though it were ripped from the pages of Better Homes and Gardens.
THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
Like an upscale boutique hotel, all of the bedrooms feature hospitality-quality mattresses, flat screen televisions and ample storage. There are three masters (two king, one queen) that each have ensuite baths. The additional king guest room has easy access to the fourth full bath.
THE OUTDOOR SPACES
The entire estate is completely enclosed for privacy. Once inside the gates, you will feel as though you have wandered into an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. The front garden features a rolling lawn, stone paths and mature fruit trees. The equally private backyard is very Palm Springs-chic with a grand pebble-tec surfaced saltwater pool, a fabulous outdoor kitchen, and a covered dining pavilion with gas-fueled heater. Lounge poolside in the full sun, or beneath the shaded lanai. Enjoy sun sets over the stunning mountain view, followed by long nights gathered around the firepit with your travel companions.
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.
A PART OF PALM SPRINGS HISTORY
This private compound was built in 1946 from plans by architect Paul R. Williams - known for designing Tudor revivals and Villas in the French Chateau and Regency styles for clients Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Julie London and Tyrone Power. He began working in Palm Springs when weekend and seasonal getaways were all the rage for the celebrities who flocked here to relax under the radar. Today, Leonardo DiCaprio owns property in the neighborhood as do some of the biggest stars of daytime television like Bobbie Eakes (All My Children, Bold & The Beautiful) and Tristan Rogers (Young and the Restless, General Hospital).

"Wonderful experience and we can't wait to return!"
"We loved this house! The location was wonderful on a quiet street Near downtown Palm Springs with a beautiful view of the mountains. The layout of the house accommodated our family perfectly with lots of room to spread out and comfortable spaces to gather together. It was clean and had everything we needed - well equipped kitchen for cooking, plenty of towels, etc. The pool and yards were exceptionally maintained and gorgeous. We particularly loved the outdoor covered dining area with a heat lamp for eating outside on cool evenings. We’ve stayed at many rental locations over the years, and this was our favorite. Would definitely stay here again!"
"The home and yard are beautiful. The “Tarzan” movie poster in the hallway was a nice touch considering the history of the home. The pool is one of the bigger residential pools I have experienced at a rental home. The pool is cleaned twice a week, and we spent many hours a day just enjoying the backyard. One bathroom is definitely superior to the others, but having 4 good sized bedrooms provided plenty of space. We never got a response after reporting a broken sun shade on multiple occasions, but otherwise the home and service was top notch. Lots of celebrity homes within walking distance, with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn’s home just a few doors down and one block over. We loved the neighborhood and proximity to downtown. 8 thumbs up from the 4 of us who stayed here for the week. Oh, and AC is nice when the temperatures hit triple digits!"
"The property is spotless. Lots of measures in place with current corona virus. Plenty of space, pool was awesome! Pool cleaners twice a week and yard folks once a week. Rooms were huge! Lots of hang out space inside and out! We would definitely rent this property again!"
"We originally booked this home because of the pool (because let's face it, who goes to Palm Springs in the summer). The pool was perfect, temperature, size, etc. We spent most of our days in the water. The house appears in the photos as slightly elegant and formal but from the moment we arrived it felt so comfortable and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and the outdoor grill was large and efficient. We love staying at the Sol Lesser Estate and would definitely return. The management company was also very efficient and communicated with us regularly, the home was spotless when we arrived."
PERFECT POOL AND LOCATION
"This house was great. We have been renting houses in Palm Springs annually for about 8 years. This was one of our favourites. The backyard and pool were perfect for the 112 degree weather and the location close to downtown restuarants. "
Chick weekend in PS
"House and furnishings very comfortable and adequate. Pool is ideal. This was our second year at this site and we hope to do it again next year."
Staying at the Rome cavalieri without the next door noise
"Our stay is always about the Acme team members. Service, service, service. One line sums up the team. If ever a problem at the residence they were always prompt, helpful and ended our conversation with “thank you for bringing it to our attention”"
Peace in the Desert
"This is a perfect place to retreat. It has a good view of the mountain from the pool area, and is very comfortable. Excellent security! The beds were comfortable. Best saline pool ever!"
"Our family of five adults and two teenagers spent nine days in the Sol Lesser house. We comfortably gathered around the living room fireplace or the dining room table for board games.. The neighborhood is lovely, great for walking the dog and close to restaurants and other stores. Acme quickly took care of the few problems we experienced. For our family, a couple of bedrooms with twin beds would have been a better fit but we managed. Highly recommended!"
Wonderful spacious house with lovely grounds
"Our family enjoyed the stay. house was conveniently located and spacious. Pool was alot of fun. Our only complaints were that the master bedroom mattress was very soft, so we slept in another room. "
"The house was in a great, quiet neighborhood that was walkable to the main drag in Palm Springs. We walked to restaurants and a coffee shop nearby.
The property is gorgeous! We felt very safe and enjoyed the wonderful views and indoor/outdoor living."
"Wonderful location and very roomy with privacy. The house had everything we needed for our vacation, we will be back. "
Great home, great neighborhood
"Beautiful home in a great neighborhood. Highly recommend. Would definitely return. "
Relaxing at its best
"Pictures don’t do this home justice. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. We’ve been vacationing in Palm Springs for 20 plus years, and in 20 plus different homes. This home may be the first home we visit more than once. The ACME team is wonderful! Thank you "
"A wonderful home situated in a beautiful neighborhood. Great customer service team."
I didn't want to leave
"This was a great vacation and the perfect rental home. Comfortably fit my group of 8 with a ton of indoor and outdoor living space. Walking distance to a ton of great shops and restaurants on Palm Canyon, and a short car ride to the airport and Tram. The views from the backyard are even better than the pictures; would definitely stay here again. "
Best Location in Palm Springs
"This is a great home in the Old Las Palmas district,the best location in Palm Springs. We had only two problems during our visit. We had a problem with the wifi. We called the property managers, who immediately fixed the problem. Also,we needed to heat the place a few nights and found the place very warm at one end, but cold at the other end. We didn't bother the property managers about the heating problem, so didn't give them a chance to fix it. A previous review mentioned a problem opening the dishwasher door. We found the problem easy to fix by just jiggling the door a little. "
"Checked-in on Weds. and found no keys in lockbox. ACME sent someone out very promptly. Everything worked great (including A/C). Kitchen was fairly stocked but the dishes really need to be replaced due to deep scratches in all of them (cheap IKEA plates). The home was incredibly secure due to high walls and 100% privacy. I would say the master bed mattress is past its prime and should be replaced. The yard was great for my dog and you can shut side gates to keep pets out of the front yard if desired. I loved how you got both garage and drive-way remote controls (most rental homes make you get out of the vehicle and punch in a code because people always drive-off with/remotes). I felt the home was a bit pricey, but certainly in the best part of Palm Springs and the resort like atmosphere was worth it. Great dog walking streets! The only down side to the neighborhood is that apparently Thursday is the day everyones gardeners come... the sound of leaf blowers and lawn equipment was non-stop and all day. "
Comfortable and Peaceful
"Overall, lovely home in the best neighborhood with wonderful views.
Great outdoor kitchen.
Only downside is the dishwasher doesn't open fully because it hits the stove - so be prepared to wash dishes if you eat in.
Wonderful Large Well Kept Home
"Very well kept, clean, large and nicely furnished, great beds~pool was wonderful!!! 8 of us and two grandkids had a fantastic birthday celebration at this home. Only one issue and that was the the dishwasher door could not open all the way because of the oven. Very hard to load dishwasher. Other that that the house was beautiful, grounds are very private and location great!!"
"The house was as advertised. Very spacious, quiet, and private. Located in a beautiful neighborhood convenient to many shops and restaurants. The pool was very attractive and the fenced and walled-in yard was convenient for us, as we traveled with our dog. It was just the two us (and the dog), but the home is big enough that several couples could occupy it and still have their privacy. Loved the his & hers master bath."
sol lessor house
"we love it here. perfect home for our three family vacation."
Awesome Family Stay!
Manager Response: The noise ordinance scared us alittle - we are not loud but were very hesitant to have music on and or even play in the pool - shouting etc. The dishwasher does not open hardly at all. The way the kitchen is designed, the door of the dishwasher bumps into the stove and does not allow you to open the door of the dishwasher. My son-in-law is a chef and that was very inconvenient.
"A lovely home that fit our family's needs very well. Location was great, and we enjoyed our stay. The house suited our needs, and was well in our price point The best part was having my family together, and enjoying our time. The noise ordinance scared us a little - we are not loud but were very hesitant to have music on and or even play in the pool - shouting etc. "
Excellent comfort, style and cleanliness!
"I have dealt with you in the past and had no problem with the past. I do love some of the houses you offer. The houses are always so nice and clean. The best part was the check in and check out. Such nice people to work with. The nicest surprise was how lovely the back yard was...no hot cement. The backyard was beautiful. "
"ACME House Co. consistently provides properties that offer a high standard for cleanliness and presentation. Very good comfort, style, and overall stay!"
"The home is georgous, and the pictures are accurate. Very clean and well maintained. The location is A+! ACME House Co. was very reponsive regarding any questions, logistics, and the area. I spoke a few times with them and they always responded PROMPTLY. When I go back to Palm Springs I will definitely stay at the home. If you are considering this home for a stay, look no further. Great back yard and pool! Thanks for the wonderful hospitality. "
Excellent in Every Way!
"Excellent Cleanliness! Excellent Comfort! Excellent Style! Overall stay...Excellent!"
