A PART OF PALM SPRINGS HISTORY
This classic Palm Springs Pool Home was originally built by the iconic Alexander Construction Company in 1960. The property has been lovingly restored - respecting its architectural pedigree while updating it for the way we live today. The original open concept floor plan, iconic flat roof, and the post and beam ceilings have been preserved - while adding modern conveniences like high speed internet access, updated heating and cooling, and four flat screen televisions. The result is an absolutely beautiful - retro chic property that is nostalgic and next-century at the same time. Perfect if you want the real Palm Springs experience.
THE INTERIOR LIVING SPACES
Stunning designer home with a spacious open floor plan, soaring vaulted ceilings, and lots of natural light. Bright, optimistic palette with fun shots of color. Super-fun pop art. Totally instagramable with photo opps everywhere. 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. The well stocked kitchen is perfect for group and individual meal prep.
This property captures the magic of Southern California glamour - designed in true Palm Springs-style. The mountain views are absolutely spectacular. The backyard itself is so private, spacious and well-planned. The inground pool and spa are surrounded by chaise lounges and shade umbrellas. There's a gas barbecue, alfresco dining, an outdoor bar with a fire feature and another separate firepit lounge area that is perfect for long desert evenings under the stars.
Like the hippest boutique hotel, all of the bedrooms feature comfortable hotel-quality mattresses, a flat screen television, ample storage and a dedicated courtyard. The master bedroom offers a king-sized bed, an en suite bath, and its own direct pool access. The two guest rooms share easy access to the hall bath.

"Bubble Gum Modern was perfect for our family vacation. The house and backyard are beautiful. We will definitely come back!"
""We had such a great experience in this house and absolutely loved the view !! Host replied fast and everything in the house is super organised!""
"The Bubble Gum Modern House was perfect for our family’s 4 day get away. The house was spotless, had everything we needed, beds were comfy, and kitchen was well stocked. We grilled almost every night. The heated pool, hot tub and outdoor fire pits were amazing. We will definitely come back to this house when we make another trip to Palm Springs. "
Stylish, comfortable and instagramable
"Stunning home in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. Everything was stylish and designed beautifully. The backyard was modern and spacious with two fire pits, pool and jacuzzi.There were so many instagrammable areas, and I wanted to take photos all day. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the shampoo and lotions were luxurious. I cannot wait to come back and sip my margarita by the pool again. Thank you so much Bubblegum Modern and Acme House. "
Amazing Visit to the Desert!
"Loved this place. Beautifully furnished. Fun art. Fabulous private pool yard. The Acme Management team was so helpful and kind. Thanks Acme for introducing us to Babes BBQ who delivered poolside BBQ to the house twice during our stay! Deeeeeelish! We had a wonderful 5 nights of complete relax time. Thank you."

Bubble-gum Modern Hits the Spot!
"We love mid-century design, but the Bubble Gum Modern House takes it to a new level. The floor plan is the perfect use of small spaces, making the house feel larger than it really is. Of course, it helps to have a yard that flows seamlessly from house to patio, pool and spa. What a relaxing weekend! It was like being in a luxury hotel, but with very private ambiance. The whole property is decorated with sense of panache and whimsy. We’ll be looking forward to another stay in the future! "

Quintessential Palm Springs Retreat
"I almost never write reviews but this house blew me away. As an architect, I am hypercritical when it comes to design. Bubble Gum hits the spot. It offers a well curated mid century backdrop while providing all the comfort of a clean home. I love the selection of colors which make the house feel light and airy. It is the perfect place to host, relax in the pool / spa, or retreat in the bedroom. I invited some friends over and we had a fantastic time enjoying BBQ, dancing by the outdoor fireplace with unobstructed mountain view. It is centrally located so it was super convenient to got to downtown PS and supermarkets. I have visited PS many times but this was by far the best experience and I definitely will be stay here again in the future. "
A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay in stylish surroundings
" The bubble gum modern was an absolutely delightfully restored classic Palm Springs mid century, very well designed with lots of unique and thoughtful touches inside and out. The star of the show is the backyard. Once you walk out the back door, you’ll never want to leave. The grounds are purposefully divided into many different zones that all flow together perfectly, from pool to dining to fire pit to conversation nooks, mountain views and private patios. This is a home I could return to again and again to relax and refresh without feeling bored"
Relaxing and Enjoyable
"We have stayed at Bubble Gum house twice and each time has been relaxing and enjoyable. The house is airy and sensitive to its architectural era; immaculate inside and out. The beds are so comfortable you don’t want to get up in the morning. The open kitchen and dining area were perfect for getting everyone together for entertaining. The multiple outside sitting and eating areas gave everyone a place to get away if they wanted. The pool and hot tub were perfect for relaxing. The fire table and fire pit were great for staying warm on cool nights. I look forward to visiting again. Our stay couldn’t have been better."
Gorgeous Mid Century Modern!
"We had the pleasure at staying at this luxurious mid century modern home. If I could give it more stars, I would. The amenities were incredible. Starting with the super comfy beds and all the bedrooms that have ample space and closets, plus all the rooms are beautifully decorated and stick the the 'bubble gum modern' theme. The outside living space is divine! Not one, but 2 fire pits! I was so inspired by this homes' backyard space that I immediately want to remodel my own backyard. The hot tub is enormous and even has its own light show. Plus you cannot beat the unbelievable views. Sitting in the hot tub during sunset overlooking the mountain... Ahhhhh. So relaxing! Plenty of space for a long weekend or even a longer stay. Conveniently located and easy access to lots of shopping. I would highly recommend and will definitely stay here again on my next visit! "
Bubble Gum Modern
"I had the opportunity a few weeks ago during the holiday weekend in February where the weather was perfect. The house is beautiful and in a perfect area of Palm Springs in a nice residential neighborhood. The backyard with the Jacuzzi and pool really set the evening to relax before going to dinner. The morning was beautiful with a great view being surrounding by the mountains and the sunrise which was breathtaking and the peacefulness of enjoying the sunrise. I enjoyed my stay in the Bubble Gum Modern..... Great decorating of the house and theme to the house."
Time Travel to the Mid-Century
"Enjoy a classic mid-century experience with contemporary amenities. The backyard pool, jacuzzi, and fire pit, and wonderful mountain view were my favorite. The location is convenient to all of Palm Springs, and compared to a hotel, this property was an incredible value."
2018 Modernism Home Tour for Racquet Club Estates
Manager Response: Thanks for bringing us this fabulous Mid Mid home Nathan. We love it and know our guests will too!
"The owner's comments below were in a brochure for the 2018 Racquet Club Estates Home Tour during Modernism Week; we were very excited that Bubble Gum Modern was one of 7 homes on the tour! "After about a year of searching, we finally found our Palm Springs dream home in the Racket-Club Estates in May 2017 and couldn’t be happier. There were many things that attracted us to this home. Having met the architect William Krisel on a Palm Springs Modernism Week house tour about 5 years earlier, we loved that we were now owners of an Alexander Co./Krisel home and a fairly pure one at that without awkward additions. We love that our immediate neighborhood is quiet, filled with other mid-century homes, and feels like a step back in time to a bygone era, while also so close to Victoria Park. We especially love our huge lot with insane, unobstructed mountain views. Most of the interior changes that we made were relatively simple—painting extensively, installing hanging light fixtures and black-out shades, making a few small bathroom modifications, and picking out furnishings. Originally, our outdoor space was largely just the pool, rocks, and minimal landscaping; thus, our big renovation project was really to improve our back-yard space. We worked with a local architectural landscape design firm to create and implement a beautiful, playful, and functional design that would also resonate with our mid-century home. The recently-completed outdoor space has really transformed our living experience at our home and achieved our goals for having a great place to entertain and also a serene place to relax. We hope you like our home as much as we do!" "
