P.S. City ID #2944 Primary renter must be at least 25 years of age
This retro chic vacation home is located in Tahquitz River Estates, in walking distance to trendy South Palm Springs. The property owners are passionate about 1950s architecture and design, particularly the restoration of Vintage Trailers. They tapped into their love of all things mid-century when they reimagined this old 1951 hipster pad - blending vintage styling with modern technology to create a cool, comfortable and very private Palm Springs escape. Occasionally, the owners will leave a beautifully restored Mid-Mod Airstream or Canned Ham in the backyard for our guests' enjoyment. Perfect for reenacting a scene from Lucy & Desi's MGM movie The Long Long Trailer.
In true Palm Springs-style, the owners respected the home's architectural pedigree by preserving the iconic concrete floors, stacked stone, and post & beam ceilings. The original floor to ceiling windows have been replaced with fabulous moving walls of glass by Fleetwood - blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living. All new kitchen and baths. Hi-speed internet service. Four flat-screen televisions.
THE LIVING AREAS
New easy-maintenance kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Open concept dining/living room with stacked stone fireplace, a flat screen television, and a cool mix of retro and new furniture that captures the swank Palm Springs vibe. Just imagine cool jazz spinning on the record player and martinis being shaken over ice. The movable walls of glass along the back of the house reveal beautiful mountain views and a very private paradise back yard.
THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
All three bedrooms feature flat screen televisions, hotel quality mattresses and ample closet space. Bedroom 1 has a queen-sized bed, a sitting area and direct pool access. It shares a bath with Bedroom 2 which has two full-sized beds. Bedroom 3 has a queen-sized bed and direct bath access. All of the bedrooms are uniquely furnished and have a style all their own.
This home has a happy, comfortable vacation vibe. The back yard is no exception. It is completely walled for privacy and well planned for enjoying sundrenched days by the pool and long evenings under the stars. There is a heated in-ground pool with an integrated waterfall spa and spectacular mountain views. You'll find an outdoor living room, alfresco dining for eight, and a fire feature to gather round on those cool desert evenings. There are some very cool architectural design elements that make this yard the quintessential hanging spot --- mid-century block work, pebble tech patios, fountains and neat lighting. You're going to love it.
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.

You'll be in walking distance to the night clubs, bars, restaurants and performance venues of the South Palm Springs Business District. Burger joints, sandwich shops, and grocery stores are all nearby.
The vibe of this home is very California' very Palm Springs. The owners have created a comfortable, relaxing getaway space that honors the mid-century pedigree of the home but meets the needs of how we live today.
Suitable for extended long weekends, weekly stays, month-long visits and as a seasonal rental. Advanced bookings strongly advised. Optional concierge services including daily maid service, poolside massage, pre-arrival grocery stocking, and private chef can be arranged with three-week prior notice.

"Terrific relaxing week spent in Palm Springs. Wonderful living space and fantastic outdoor area with many areas to swim, relax, eat or play games. "
"A spacious and beautifully designed home. In any other year, this would be a great place to bring friends together. In 2020, it was a great place for my wife and I to enjoy a week away from our small SF condo."
Fun in the Sun
"The house was lovely with interesting mid-century decor. All the bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and had a large refrigerator. We spent most of our time outside. The pool was clean and the perfect temperature. There were six of us staying there and a couple others spent the afternoons with us. It was great to have so much outdoor space where we could spread out. "
A welcome break from the big city
"My wife and I had a much needed week away from our downtown SF loft that we've lived and worked in together for the last 8 months. Having more than one room and an outside space to relax in was exactly what we needed - even for just 8 short days. The property is beautiful and the house opens very nicely to the outside space.
Our only complaints: the pool is too small for swimming, the road noise at night is more like a rumble than a noise, one of the showers was working (handle was broken), and there was no hot water inside. Fortunately, the outside shower had hot water, but it would have been nice to actually take a warm shower inside."
"Excellent place!! Enjoyed the Pool and amenities to the fullest. Had a bit of WIFI issues but ACME was quick to get us someone to fix the issue. The beds are super comfortable."
Would definitely stay again
"We loved staying at Lucy, I'm Home. The location was very convenient to everything we needed, yet still felt tranquil relaxing. The house itself was spotless and spacious. And the backyard was the most beautiful and amazing we have ever experienced!"
"My husband and I stayed at this house for his 40th birthday. The house is exactly as advertised, if not better. You can tell that the owners put in a lot of effort to make this house a special place to stay. One minor suggestion would be to put darker curtains in the bedrooms. Otherwise - perfection. We will be coming back! "
"Just like the pictures, this house has a mid century feel with an entertaining backyard. Good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds. The pool is the perfect size and depth for stand and chat."
"We stayed for over a week and had Avery nice relaxing time. Wonderful home."
"Great house in Palm Springs - super stylish/clean space, with many nice touches. Check in and check out couldn't have been easier. The kitchen (and bar accessories) both came very well stocked, and the house stayed nice and cool during record heat. The outside area is quite large with plenty of seating and wonderful lighting at night. Everything worked well and we had an excellent time at this house!"
""This house is amazing! So many amenities and the decor is lovely. The backyard is gorgeous. We loved all the different seating areas and the pool & hot tub are the perfect size. You won't want to leave!""
Great relaxing stay
"The layout of the place was great for 5 adults. The backyard pool, fireplace, grill and jacuzzi was great for entertaining. We wish we could've taken more advantage of it but it rained pretty heavily on two of the days. Overall a wonderful and relaxing stay!"
great house minor touches could make it even better
"staff-best i have encountered in 10 years. faults in house--terrible sound system for main tv and very poor instructions for use. toilets should be elongated not round very difficult to use....silverware was lackluster . no knife sharpener, no potato peeler. concierge rushed out saying she had another appointment even though we were early. she could not work tv/cable. as i said book not correct. beds could be firmer or new mattresses lots of traffic noise all hours of the night."
Lucy I’m Home
"Great vacation house for kids, families, and couples. Nice big bedrooms and bathrooms, wonderful pool area with lots of seating. Our only small complaint is that the home is on a very busy street that is very noisy all day and night - but only mostly noticeable when trying to sleep. If you aren’t a light sleeper, you wouldn’t notice. "
Wish it was my house and not Lucy’s
"The Lucy I’m Home house was fantastic, in a great location, albeit a little dated and confused with its style. The AC was not as we expected with reliance on ceiling fans in the bedrooms, which also had small beds for the size of rooms. The large outside space was fantastic with various seating, dining and cooking areas as well as a large pool and spa - perfect for those hot sunny days. The ACME team were great hosts too. Definitely stay there again and highly recommended, "
"Lucy, I'm happy to be home!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at this perfect home. The accommodations were better than advertised, and the upkeep by Acme was 5 star. Thank you."
"The home is exceptionally beautiful, very clean and well maintained. It slept 6 very comfortably. Pool and spa were fabulous and clean. The manager and her team were extremely attentive to our needs and immediately resolved any issues that came up. Location was great. Very quiet neighborhood. I would definitely stay there again! "
Beautiful House with an amazing backyard
"I can't say enough good things, from the moment we got there to when we left. First off the décor is impeccable and the house is large and spacious. The backyard is perfect for BBQing and lounging with friends and family. The house has many amenities and a notebook of how to use anything in the house which is useful when you are trying to figure out cable, wifi, jacuzzi, etc. We would definitely stay again! Also, a great location 5 minutes from downtown."
Great house in a great location
"We spent the month of March in "Lucy I'm Home" and had a wonderful time. The home is stylish and has a great outdoor space. The indoor and outdoor spaces are even better than the photos suggest. Great touches by the designer / owner enhance the look and feel of the property.
Three well appointed and comfortable bedrooms. One with direct access to the pool area and another with a private courtyard out front.
Great mountain views from the pool area.
A quick walk or bike ride to downtown and to the restaurants on E. Palm Canyon Drive.
While well equipped, the kitchen could use a better selection of outdoor dining and drink ware.
Overall a wonderful house that we would certainly recommend and stay in again."
" It was our first time visiting Palm Springs and we loved it! We brought our young adult children with us over the Christmas holidays and loved every minute of staying in the home called Lucy, I’m home! The home was clean with large rooms and we especially loved the family room opening to the very private backyard. We spoke We spent lots of time in the terrific hot tub and heated pool! The home has a great location and we walked to old town Palm Springs and drove easily too many surrounding states. I’ve already recommended Lucy I’m home to my friends back in Missouri. I was especially impressed with Acme management company. They were very friendly, helpful and attentive to any question we had."
Perfect PRIDE retreat!
"We truly enjoyed the Lucy I'm home property! We had a group of six, the 3 bedrooms were situated just right for us. The decor was total Palm Springs, the pool and yard was amazing! We spent more time at the house than at the Pride celebrations. We will definitely be back."
Excellent Home, Beautifully Upgraded, and Wonderful Outdoor Areas
Manager Response: Original Review We enjoyed a short stay at Lucy, I'm Home in June. The house was beautifully decorated. We loved the vintage furnishings. The kitchen was well planned and the outdoor seating and lights at night fantastic. The house is close to downtown and easy to get to. Our only complaint was the Acme-branded WiFi in the house was so slow as to be unusable for any purpose but email. We ended up setting up Verizon hotspots on our cell phones to have faster Internet.

Lucy I’m home review
"As always w VRBO we had a nice time. The house was clean and in a good location
I would suggest more plastic glassware. There was some but none really matched. The outdoor spaces were nice. We did have a hard time figuring out the showers inside. We used outside often because it had the best pressure and hot water.we come for spring break annually and will be next year as well. Always fun!!! The house was stocked otherwise and very relaxing. The vintage furniture prices were a nice stay in the same house again..."
Exceeded My Expectations
"My family spent a wonderful, relaxing Christmas week at Lucy, I'm Home. The home was exactly as described - and exceeded my expectations. The layout of the home allowed privacy and plenty of space for the family to gather. It was a great location to spend the week hiking - in and around Palm Springs as well as Joshua Tree. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool and patio upon return from our daily excursions as well as grilling dinner each evening. We were all sad to leave and wished we had booked for a few additional days. Will definitely be back and highly recommend Acme House Company. The coffee maker was not working and although it was Christmas Eve, they didn't think twice about replacing it that evening. Great response and wonderful customer service throughout the rental process. Simple and timely instructions for check-in and check-out....both a breeze!"
Great Property & Superb Service!
"This home was large, clean, and as advertised. The concierge service was a nice welcome, and the cleaning service was on-site promptly at 10 a.m. while we departed. We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a Palm Springs rental."
Excellent care and service!
"ACME House Co. made us feel like we were valued, and they were there to take care of us. I chose Acme House because they got better ratings than other vacation rental companies. I also liked the damage waiver fees rather than my having to be paranoid during the whole trip about getting charged for inadvertent damage. I loved the backyard of the house and the layout of the home. Excellent style and overall stay. "
Loved our time outdoors!
"Backyard layout was cool and awesome. Lots of places to lounge indoor and out. House offered excellent style and comfort. A very good stay!"
"We chose this property because we liked the look of the home and the outside area. This was our first time renting a home so we had no preference of rental agency however we were very happy with ACME House Co. The best part was the outdoor area, having our meals outside, and relaxing by the pool. Also, it was nice to have some shaded areas so you could get out of the sun, and still enjoy the outdoors. We really enjoyed the experience of having a house rental, and overall the stay was very relaxing. We found the home lacked nothing, and was so comfortable, and had a lot of charcter and attention to detail. Overall a wonderful stay!"
An Overall Excellent Stay!
"Excellent Style! Excellent Comfort! Excellent Cleanliness! Loved this home!"
A great choice!
"Renting with ACME House Co. was easy and seamless. The house was just as depicted, and very clean. We chose this property because the property looked better than others and the pricing was better. A very good stay!"
"Very good style and comfort! ACME House Co. made everything easy for us! Enjoyed our stay!"
A Solid Choice!
"Easy booking process, professional and proactive with communication Previous booking experience was good so I booked again! Excellent cleanliness of the home. The house was on a busy street and there was significant traffic noise, would be good to know ahead of time. Probably wouldn't work if a family had small kids "
Amazing from start to finish!
"The house was amazing! It was extremely stylish and the pictures did not do it justice! It was the perfect getaway, and a very well managed property. The location, price and amenities were all great! The best part was the pool and the ambiance, especially how inviting the lighting was upon arrival! "
Always have a positive experience with ACME House Co.!
"Acme team made the whole rental process smooth, easy, and hassle free. Loved the location, the gorgeous home style, and the decor. Very private backyard! A very positive experience, better than expected, and we cannot wait to be back again."
"The photos do not do this home justice, it's immaculate, and better than expected. I cannot wait to stay at this home again. The Acme team was great also with the process, Acme is my go to for rentals. Always responsive and provided very thorough information regarding the home, and all the amenities, etc. If you're looking for a special and beautifully designed mid-century modern home, with all the creature comforts for pure rest and relaxation this home will not disappoint. There isn't a single complaint, just a great experience all around. I have stayed at other Acme rentals and this one is by far my favorite. I will definitely be back again."
We will definitely recommend!
"We loved everything about this house! We had rented a different house with a different rental agency and it was accidentally double booked, they were not able to accommodate us. We contacted ACME House Co. within a week of our vacation, and they got us this house. We really liked the ease of renting, trust in the company, great service, check in/out was fast and simple, the app was a nice touch, and the house was as described in the listing. Loved the decor of the home! Loved our stay here! Thank you ACME for the amazing service ! "
An enjoyable stay!
"ACME House Co., knows the rental process well, and made it simple once the agreement was signed, with a seamless check in process. We really appreciated being able to check in at 2am and not having to meet someone at the house! The house was right on Sunrise, busy street, lots of road noise and sirens which dramatically impacted our enjoyment. we had a very nice stay, had a few breakfasts/dinners outside, had my in-laws over for dinner, and enjoyed ourselves. "
"The best part of our rental experience was the location. The biggest surprise about our stay was the size of the place. Excellent all the way around! "
So comfortable, I didn't want to leave!
"This property was so much more than I expected. The furnishings were top notch, and are not "rental" furnishings, they are top quality and made me feel like I was at home, not just in some rental! The outdoor area was very well planned out. The location was perfect, and it was located in the south (less windy) part of town. Loved the pool, and also relaxing inside, on our last night, enjoying a movie on the television! "
"Great experience from booking to check out! Impressive house, even nicer than the photos revealed! Nicely designed and had lovely space. No problems, but a sense that if there were problems, they would be addressed. Enjoyed the concierge check in! "
"I'm a photographer who visited friends at this house for just one day. All I can say to all the mid-century modern fans out there is bring your camera! Very cool house with something interesting to look at around every corner. Great design inside and out. And Wow! There was a restored Airstream in the back yard that looked brand new."
