What we like about this property

Epitomizing the pinnacle of mid-century style, this modern vacation rental in Palm Springs has been impeccably restored with a respectful eye for architect William Krisel’s vision and a preservationist’s passion for detail. And a liberal dash of holiday fun!

Description

Located in the architecturally rich Twin Palms enclave of mid-century homes, this modern vacation rental in south Palm Springs flawlessly recreates the lifestyle and architectural history of mid-century California. Credited with redefining the landscape of Palm Springs, The George Alexander company and architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel initiated the city’s first major housing boom in the 1950’s, forever influencing its architectural evolution and identity.

Designated a historic modern classic, the owners have carefully preserved the look and character of the original design, enlisting a renovation team that worked closely with Mr. Krisel consulting his archives (housed at the Getty Museum) to restore the classic period detail. A masterpiece of environmental planning, the house was built in 1957 and the layout continues to be functional and relevant for today’s lifestyle with cool retro features such as the gabled butterfly roof lines and exposed concrete blocks, airy breezeways and clerestory windows seamlessly integrated with modern amenities. The living room is anchored by the stone fireplace and is set adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen and open dining area that seats six with amazing views of the San Jacinto mountains. 

The en-suite master bedroom is a luxurious hideaway for two that opens out to the gardens while the second and third bedrooms are ideal for family or friends and also include private garden access. Meticulously selected decor, furnishings and finishes lend it a polished contemporary feel while still highlighting the home’s dazzling mid-century roots. 

The gated grounds feature private palm gardens that surround the pool with stunning mountain views and plenty of space to lounge and dine.   

Celebrating design as destination, this home is a playground for desert fun and a luxurious trip through time.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, HDTV with Netflix and Blu Ray, DVD player and TVs in each room, stereo audio system with CD player, iPhone jack and in-wall speakers, land line telephone with unlimited local and long distance calling, Tempurpedic mattresses, pool rafts and toys, laundry facilities, outdoor grill, covered parking.

AROUND

There’s also a free trolley that circles the city within walking distance.

    We just got back from 9 wonderful days in Palm Springs. Staying in this house was the hi-light of the trip. It’s beautiful, well taken care of, and perfectly stock for all your vacations needs. I highly recommend it.

    The house and pool are V nice. It was a great place to spend a few days baking in the desert heat. Perfect for four adults. A few kids wouldn’t hurt either. Neighborhood and city ordinances are prohibitive and slightly annoying but it wasn’t a problem and that’s city-wide. Location is fantastic. Pro-tip: Keep the blinds closed in the daylight. It’s hot. Pool floats are legit and the carport helps a lot with the heat. The robots are cute too.

  • Kathy G., June 6, 2018

    Terrific spot!! We love the Twin Palms neighborhood and have stayed at two other houses just down the street. Rodney’s home was fantastic! The decor was charming and the fixtures and finishes were all high quality. And all the beds were Tempurpedic (oh la la!)! One thing to note, our last trip to Palm Springs was about 5 years and it seems like the city has gotten more strict with their rental rules with quiet time from 10pm to 10am. It seemed a little aggressive that we couldn’t go outside and enjoy the pool until 10am (just an FYI). Rodney was great and super responsive and our onsite concierge David was friendly and a great local resource. A terrific spot in a historic neighborhood! Thank you!

    A wonderful place! We stayed here during Modernism Week and we were just in! The place is stylish and very well equipped (loved the Tempurpedic beds – so comfortable). We enjoyed the heated pool with the view of the mountains and the very nice neighborhood. The concierge was super nice. We recommend 100% and keep the address for a future stay.

    Best place to stay in Palm Springs!! We really enjoyed the stay at this property. Its 100% as described plus much more! (They even provide Tylenol, first aid kit, batteries and flashlights in case you need). Its very clean, the linen and towels have a fresh detergent scent. The view of the mountains is breathtaking. The pool was super delicious. The Property manager is great, very helpful and willing to please. I will definitely return and I recommend this property 100%.

  • Trish V., December 1, 2017

    Relaxing vacation and great place to stay. We were looking for the authentic Palm Springs experience and found it here. The home was immaculate with furniture that really suited the style of house and the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and we even did a full Thanksgiving Dinner. The washer/dryer was a bonus and was located in such a way as to not heat up the house. The backyard and pool were laid out with a beautiful view and we also had a great time relaxing around the fire pit with friends and family in the evening. Even though we were fortunate to have a record breaking temps the week we were there, we never had to use the AC as the nights cooled off nicely. We were even able to enjoy the ambiance of the indoor fireplace once or twice. Rodney was a pleasure to work with and even after we changed our minds about heating the pool, he responded within minutes and set the pool heat remotely. Nice feature!! Thank you for the care and detail of this home. Would love to return in the future.

    A mid-century jewel. As a lover of mid-century, this was a real find! I’ve seen this house published and it’s on the historic register. Besides the great architecture, it was very clean, well maintained and comfortable. Loved it!

  • Jodie, July 13, 2017

    We were blown away at this amazing home and would book again in a heartbeat. There was high quality attention to detail right down to every appliance you might need.
    It felt like a home not a rental. 
    We will be back soon for sure !

    Our family was really delighted with our recent visit to Apricot Glow in Palm Springs. The views from the property are breathtaking and the layout of the house was ideal for indoor/outdoor living. The fire pit was an added bonus so we could sit outside and star gaze at night. The property manager Claudia allowed us to check in early straight from the airport which was much appreciated. The children loved the pool and all the pool toys and balls. The interior design was both playful and stylish and perfectly in keeping with the style and era of the house, even down to the cabinature in the kitchen and bathrooms and the fun pops of orange. The kitchen was well outfitted with everything we could need, which is the first time I can say that of anywhere I have ever rented! Even the choice of glassware added to the authentic Palm Springs experience! We hope to be back someday…

    This house is a mid-century dream come true! Well-appointed, clean, stylish. We had a great time and can’t wait to come back.

    We had an amazing time at this house.

    The neighborhood architecture and mountain views are amazing. Rodney was super helpful and easy to work with. Great size rooms. Can look out the dining room through wide glass doors and see the pool with mountains in background. Inside is well laid out and comfy. The pictures don’t do it justice.

    Over the years I have rented many houses.

    This is the first time my expectations have been exceeded. Most houses usually are a bit worn because and faded and do not quite live up to their pictures. This house is exactly what you see in the pictures and MORE. Everything is top notch and first class.

    Your Own Personal Resort

    We were already planning a trip to Palm Springs and decided, months ago, to spend it in a private home versus the hotel or guest house route, like we typically do. It was such a great decision. This property was clean, modern and fully equipped. We didn’t need the extra bedrooms, as there was just the two of us, but the spacious kitchen/living room area and the large and private pool area were perfect for a week of total relaxation. And a great neighborhood for morning walks to see dozens of other mid-century gems! We would gladly recommend this place and look forward to staying there again (frankly, we really didn’t want to give the keys back).

    This is an amazing home – comfortable, stylist, convenient, fun!

    This is our 4th time renting this home. It is a combination of fantastic midcentury design and furnishings with incredible comfort (love the Tempur-Pedic mattresses!). It is very spacious – 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (both have large showers and modern fixtures). The kitchen, dining room and living room are open with doors that open to the pool area. It’s incredibly private, clean and cool. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet, and very close to Koffee, The Ace and wonderful hiking. Also, just a walk through the neighborhood is beautiful! If that weren’t enough, the owners are some of the nicest, most accommodating people you will meet. We’ll definitely be back!
