Moroccan chic meets Southern California charm in this Mid Mod vacation home by famed developer, Paul Trousdale. This very private, one-of-a-kind 2265 sf home sits on over a quarter acre in the popular Tahquitz River Estates neighborhood. It features a gorgeous yard with an oversized pool and a waterfall spa surrounded by chaise lounges, an outdoor living area, a daybed, a built-in fire pit, and a covered outdoor dining area. You’ll also find an outdoor shower, a beautiful fountain, lush landscaping, and spectacular mountain views. Beds: K,Q,Q,Q

This unique designer property - which was once home to Emmy award-winning set designer, Ken Johnson - was truly made for luxury living in Palm Springs. Inside you’ll find curated artwork, comfortable furnishings, a spacious free-flowing floor plan, and walls of glass that blur the lines between indoor-outdoor living.

As you walk through the uniquely carved wooden entrance, you’ll be greeted by a gorgeous vacation paradise. The oversized pool has an integrated spa and is surrounded by lounge chairs, an outdoor living area, a vintage daybed, a built-in fire pit, and a fabulous veranda with alfresco dining. You’ll even find an outdoor shower and a beautiful fountain! If you’re in the mood to BBQ, you can find a BBQ grill in the outdoor area adjacent to the kitchen. Lush landscaping, towering palm trees, and stunning mountain views add to the magic of this spectacular property.

** The pool will be heated to 83 degrees upon request with an additional service fee. Please let us know if you'd like to heat the pool so we can ensure it is heated before your arrival. Spa heating is included with your rental at no extra cost **

Fabulous vacation home with the perfect blend of Moroccan chic and Palm Springs charm. Gorgeous and sophisticated but casual and comfortable at the same time. Walls of glass around the property blur the lines between indoor-outdoor living in true Palm Springs style. The free-flowing floor plan is perfect for spending time with your entire group - but there are also quiet spaces tucked away for getting some alone time. The living area - which features a gorgeous fireplace with Moroccan tile - flows into the dining area and well-stocked kitchen. There is also a separate den with a sofa and a desk - perfect for stepping away for remote working and learning.

This property has all the appointments you would expect from a luxury home - high-speed internet, upgraded heating/cooling systems and a washer/dryer. The owners have thought of everything!

All bedrooms have been beautifully styled and feature a hotel-quality mattress, ample storage and direct access to the outdoors. The Primary Bedroom has a California King bed and an ensuite bath with a double sink. One Guest Room has a Queen bed and easy access to the guest bathroom in the hallway, the other Guest Room has a Queen bed and an ensuite bath.

There is also a detached casita where you’ll find a Queen bed with an ensuite bath - plus its own kitchenette equipped with a sink, a wine fridge, flat screen tv, and of course, its own coffeemaker. There is even a dining table for 2 guests and direct access to a fabulous private patio with more alfresco dining.

Driving is completely optional while staying at this property - conveniently located in the popular Tahquitz River Estates neighborhood. You'll be less than a mile from the world-famous Palm Canyon Drive, close to both the South Palm Springs Business District and the bustling Downtown area. Grocery stores, fine dining, casual restaurants, nighttime entertainment, and some great coffee shops are all just a 15-30 minute walk or an easy Uber ride away. This really is the ideal location for those who want to be close to everything - but removed from the hustle and bustle of Downtown.

We stayed for a week and enjoyed our time at the house. Great location - house is private and quiet. Great outdoor space with ample seating around the pool. Interior is well appointed and decorated. ACME was communicative, responsive and helpful. Can't wait to visit again!

Your Perfect Moroccan Secluded Getaway Retreat

5 of 5

Overall Comment This property, Riverside house in Palm Springs, is a dream. The design and layout, furnishings and amenities, from front gate Moroccan inspired door throughout the grounds and inside the home, we were taken away within a secluded retreat -; all without having to board an airplane to Morocco for our adventure. Acme management company is on top of everything and handled any request with top notch professionalism. While residing at the “Riverside” house, it felt like a honeymoon destination - and rivaled the places we've stayed across the world. The listing photos posted are accurate, but seeing the property in person truly becomes a magical experience. Impeccable taste in decor and adherence to cleanliness - noticed especially in this pandemic era. Oversized pool, updated modern kitchen, separated quiet bedrooms, leather living room furniture, perfectly appointed wood framed windows with amazing views. We will return for sure as our first choice when visiting the PS area.

Relax at your own private Oasis

5 of 5

This is an amazing desert get-a-way offering picturesque mountain views and a charming town with fun shops and eateries. Expect to relax at a gorgeous home (and poolside), which is very private and surrounded by tall hedges. It felt like we were away at a fancy hotel. The inside is immaculate; warm décor, fully stocked kitchen (we cooked up a storm). There is lots of space to hang out and great bedroom separation. The main gathering room is very spacious and comfy and can accommodate a large group! I so appreciated the separate office so I could jump on a quick zoom call. My family and I not only enjoyed this property, but we’re making plans to return next year!

The Perfect Oasis

5 of 5

We stayed during the ‘winter’ which allowed us to enjoy the fire pit and fireplace. The Casita attached to the main house is super cute and super private; I hardly ever saw my housemates. Perfect for work-from-home set ups with fast wifi for clear calls and Zooms. The entire place was clean and felt very safe. At night, we enjoyed eating outside next to the fire. Immaculate landscaping with a pool I dream about still to this day. So many little seating areas to catch some rays, read or simply relax. This is one of the best stays I have ever had, we would DEFINITELY stay again.

Quintessential PS weekend retreat

5 of 5

I had been to Palm Springs a few times before, staying in hotels each time. So this was my first stay in a home -- a totally different and MUCH better experience. We were a group, and the really cool part of this house is the private casita where I slept (new to me, it's the California version of a guest house, even though it's attached to the main house). I'm an early riser so getting up to make some coffee in the kitchenette didn't wake anyone else, allowing me to go for an early morning walk in the neighborhood of midcentury moderns (some nearby homes were once owned by Hollywood stars of the 20th century), to study the block after block of xeriscape landscaping (I'm a landscaping nerd), and then return home for a refreshing swim in the HUGE pool. The main house is of course great, and we enjoyed a nice gathering of about 20 friends there one evening for drinks, after which a dinner out was within close reach. When travel resumes again for me this is the place I'd return to in a heartbeat -- probably for a week or two.
