ABOUT THE INTERIOR LIVING SPACES
This high-style designer property captures the hip and sophisticated Palm Springs vibe of yesteryear. It is glamorously nostalgic and very 'next century' all at the same time.

The living room, dining area and kitchen are open to each other - with walls of glass that reveal the fabulous pool yard. The fully-stocked chef's kitchen has gleaming countertops, and stainless steel appliances including a side by side refrigerator and a Vulcan gas range.
THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
All of the bedrooms have the look and feel of an upscale boutique hotel and feature hospitality-quality King-sized mattresses, smart televisions and ample storage.
THE OUTDOOR SPACES
While the inside of this luxury vacation home is absolutely gorgeous, it is the very private pool yard and the magnificent mountain views that are the crowning glory. This property is beautifully landscaped and carefully space planned for spending time with your group. There are also more intimate spaces designed for some alone time to curl up with a good book. At the center of it all is the heated inground pool with its integrated spa. There is a gas plumbed barbecue - so you'll never have to worry about refilling the tank. Poolside chaise loungers, an outdoor living pavilion, occasional seating, a fire feature, shade umbrellas and beautiful mature plantings give this property its quintessential Palm Springs vibe.
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.

"We had a comfortable stay. The house was spotless and well cared for. We would definitely recommend this location as well, it was an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The yard and pool were perfect too! "
"Nice house, great location walkable to downtown."
"We had a great time staying a week in this home. Although the trees seems buys, once you are behind the walls everything is perfect. Great location and close to the park and restaurants. We had a lovely stay."
I plan to rent from them again!
"We loved our place in the Movie Colony. The location was overall fine, but on a sometimes noisy street. The house was very attractive although we were not crazy about the concrete floors. Pool and outside areas were fantastic!!! ACME was very helpful and professional. Came the same day for some lightbulbs that were out and because we couldn’t figure out how to use the air conditioning. We sustained an injury while there and they were so helpful! We are planning on renting a bigger house with friends later in the year."
Good Experience-- Could be Great
"To make this property a great rental and worth the cost the following should be taken into consideration....
- Better maintenance throughout (paint chipped on walls, pool area, handles on closet doors, etc.
- Kitchen cooking and serving plates, pots, pans and utensils could be better appointed. Lots or miss match and incomplete sets of things
- Pillows were also terrible (some overstuffed)"
"Everything as described. Pool and spa was awesome. Very comfortable stay. Had a minor issue which we didn't even require immediate attention for management was quick to respond and get it resolved."
"The property was clean, beautifully decorated and in a quiet neighborhood. Acme was awesome with communication & making us feel comfortable with regards to Coronavirus precautions. We will absolutely come back!"
"The house was a great getaway for a week and it truly felt like home. We loved how open and made for fun it was! The pool and hot tub were used every day, sometimes 2-3 times a day, and they were cleaned twice the week we were there. The only real issue we had was the lack of black-out curtains in the bedrooms. The sun rose at 5:30 and we all hard a hard time sleeping after that, even with eye masks. I know the intent is to keep all the rooms warm and bright, but in the morning, having shades that block the sun, even partially, would be best. The shades in the living room would even be better in the bedrooms as they were the thicker, roll-down kind and not the thin, honeycomb shades in the bedrooms."
"Great location and the pool was wonderful! My family had a wonderful experience here, and would highly recommend it. The backyard is HUGE and the pool and Jacuzzi worked fantastic!"
Nice home perfect location
"Very nice home and close to downtown. Home well maintained and Acme House Company was quick to respond when needed during our one month stay. WiFi was a problem until they disconnected Acme router. There is street noise but only noticeable when on patio. Pool and spa very nice. Beautiful walled yard with citrus trees. New Weber 3 burner natural gas grill. We didnt like the always on pilot lights on the stove. Dangerous if you set anything on it and one guest was burned when they grabed a pan accidently left on burner. Beds very comfortable. I was very impressed with Acme and most liklly will deal direct with them next year as opposed to Homeaway or Air B&B. Their phone staff and techs sent for different things were great. "
"Beautiful mountain views, nice clean/modern interior and walking distance to pubs and restaurants. Only potential negative is the road noise. Outside of that, the property was in a very peaceful and quiet location."
Had a wonderful stay at the "Movie Colony Palms" home!
"We stayed here for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed spending time in this home. The home was immaculately clean, the pool was large and the yard was full of beautiful and fragrant citrus trees (grapefruit, orange and lemon) All bedrooms are large and well equipped with very comfortable mattresses and crisp linens. You'll enjoy waking up to panoramic mountain views from two of the bedrooms - and all bedrooms have direct access to the yard which is a real bonus when coming in from the pool - there is also a convenient outdoor shower. We were met at the home by a professional concierge who gave us a full tour of the home and showed us how things operated. While in the home we had one small issue but Acme was quick to address it in a very professional and expeditious manner. We had a wonderful time and will be return guests next year."
Amazing Mid Century Modern Oasis in the Heart of Palm Springs
"I cannot say enough great things about this house. The beautiful open floor plan filled with chic and modern decor is stunning. Upon entering the front door the view of the glistening pool will call you, so much that you may not even unpack your bags! This house had everything we could have possibly wanted and more. Beautiful kitchen, grilling area, great closet space, beautiful heated pool and spa, firepit and charming little fruit trees in the backyard. Everything is beautifully kept, comfortable furniture and warm design in the bedrooms. Sit in the backyard and watch the sun set over the mountains or the sunrise in the morning with your cup of coffee under the cabana. We loved how quiet it was there as well as how centrally located we were to everything in Palm Springs. We honestly didn't want to leave the house but when we did, we were so close to everything. The neighborhood itself was very walkable and gorgeous. Cannot wait to go back and stay here again."
Your Own Private Paradise
"Movie Colony Palms Is the kind of house that as soon as you walk through the door immediately invites you to relax unwind take in the beauty of the surroundings and ...exhale. The gorgeous setting is truly perfect with the Mountain behind and the the elegant palm trees and myriad of fabulous fruit trees around every corner. The private gardens surrounding the glistening blue water of the pool and hot tub make you feel like you are in a movie! The sun waits for you in the morning and the built in canopy serves as a beautiful spot for that first cup of coffee. There you can plan your day of activities that are very accessible or you might decide to stay home in your own personal resort and watch the sun as it sets behind the Mountain. All the bedrooms are bright with charming decor good closets and a large state of the art kitchen. The crisp and beautifully kept home has an exciting collection of contemporary art. When night falls Palm Springs restaurants and roof top bars are walkable or just a short Uber or Lyft ride away. "
Gorgeous Mid Century Gem in Ideal Location!
"We loved everything about our stay at Movie Colony Palms. The home itself is immaculate, stylish and spacious with thoughtful attention to detail through and through. The weather was ideal so we spent most of our time by the pool and hot tub, both heated might I add, and the views of the San Jacinto mountains were like something out of a painting. We loved how there are many spots to relax around the property - the fire pit, the veranda, etc. I loved the lemon trees. Additionally, the location itself is prime in the "Movie Colony" neighborhood - we were able to walk downtown for dinner within 15 mins. You could spend hours walking the neighborhood and admiring the lovely homes and gardens - quiet and very friendly. A fantastic experience overall! We can't wait to visit again! "
