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.

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).

"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 "

"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. "

"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. "

"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."

Mark M. from San Francisco, 08/12/2018

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!!"

Chris K. from Santa Barbara, 07/13/2018

Very spaci...

"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."

Richard . from Rumson, 05/29/2018

Love it...

"We love it here. Perfect home for our three family vacation."

Awesome Family Stay!

"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. "

Kathy L. from Fort Worth, TX, 10/02/2017
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.

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. "

Susan S. from San Diego, CA, 06/30/2017

Consistently good!!

"ACME House Co. consistently provides properties that offer a high standard for cleanliness and presentation. Very good comfort, style, and overall stay!"

Chris R. from Winnipeg, Canada , 10/23/2016

Perfect!

"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. "

Michael M. from Inverness, IL, 10/09/2016

Excellent in Every Way!
