Indulge in mid-century modern luxury at this meticulously restored Palm Springs retreat, originally designed by architect William Krisel in 1959. The iconic "butterfly" roof sets the tone for a deluxe getaway with modern amenities. Outside, a private oasis awaits, featuring a large salt-water pool, an eight-person infinity-style spa, and a fully furnished deck with mountain views. Inside, the open floor plan showcases stylish mid-century furnishings, a well-equipped kitchen, and three bedrooms with ultra-comfortable memory foam beds.

Step into your private outdoor sanctuary, where breathtaking mountain vistas await. Take a refreshing dip in the expansive salt-water pool, ideal for leisurely laps, or unwind in the newly added eight-person infinity-style spa tucked into one corner. The generously furnished pool deck invites you to relax on four padded lounge chairs, basking in the sun or choosing the cool shade of multiple umbrellas. An outdoor dining table, shaded by an overhead pergola, sets the scene for al fresco meals, while the stainless steel grill, fueled by a natural gas line, guarantees an endless supply for your culinary delights. As night falls, gather around and marvel at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway's ascent to the peak of the San Jacinto Mountains. Your evenings here are destined for enchantment.

Sink into the sofa for a relaxing TV session or enjoy a book by the corner window, adjacent to the fireplace. For indoor dining, the hip tulip table invites you to experience a touch of George Jetson's flair.

The fully-equipped kitchen provides ample space for cooking, dining, and relaxation with loved ones. Preserving the mod atomic style, original mid-century cabinetry adds a nostalgic touch. Up-to-date stainless steel appliances and a generous array of kitchen gadgets make preparing anything from a holiday feast to a midnight snack effortlessly chic.

We had a fantastic time

4 of 5

We had a fantastic time. The place was lovely especially the backyard. The house for sure needs some work like new windows, bathrooms need a face lift, landscaping and pool need an upgrade. The pool and spa heated quickly. The location was great very close to all the shops and restaurants.

Palm Springs Mid Century Glamour

5 of 5

This property has an amazing location. It is minutes from Downtown Palm Springs and all the activities. Has covered parking if you are visiting in the Summer season your car will be shaded all day. The pool and back area are a wonderful place to relax and float the day away. There is even a fire pit to enjoy after you enjoy the sunset from the lounge chairs. This was my third stay here and I enjoy every minute.

Palm Springs Hollywood Glamour

5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property. Wonderful location from downtown Palm Springs. Great for a Palm Springs getaway. I enjoyed floating in the pool and soaking in the hot tub. For those rare evenings with cool in the air, there is even a fire pit with four chairs to enjoy a cocktail. I enjoyed the covered carport keeping the car out of the sun. This trip was my third visit. I look forward to many more.

Tennis week / Palm Springs

5 of 5

This place has everything one could want for a Palm Springs getaway. Super clean and comfortable, with a gorgeous pool and stunning mountain views. Private backyard with a great grill and outdoor fire space. Kitchen is very well stocked for indoor or outdoor dining. Beds were very comfortable with nice linens and towels. The mid-century architecture of the home and the desert landscape enhance the magical ambiance of the desert. Large heated pool with wonderful hot tub perfectly placed with views of the snow capped mountains. Uber readily available, we rarely used our rental car.

Charming Oasis in the Desert

5 of 5

Located in a quiet neighborhood very close to the main strip of Downtown Palm Springs. Everything was clean and tidy upon arrival, including pool and hot tub which both got cleaned once during the stay. House had everything we needed for a pleasant and comfortable trip. Decor and furniture are simple but have a quaint midcentury feel. Great private outdoor space in the backyard with a lovely fire pit we enjoyed several evenings. Overall a great space perfect for a desert getaway.

Nice place and well maintained. Pool was cold on day of arrival when we had paid in advance to have it heated. No compensation was offered.
