What we like about this property

A snappy and colorful restoration that sticks to William Krisel’s bold vision but with a few contemporary additions that bring it into the present. This vintage classic keeps it simple, bright and fun. 

Description

This classic Alexander is newly renovated and updated for modern life with reverence for Bill Krisel’s original design. With style influences from Charles and Ray Eames’ California residence as well as a modern Scandinavian-inspired palette of pale neutrals and wood textures, the home comes together as an earthy modern residence.

The eat-in kitchen features Heath tile, Terrazzo counter tops and walls of glass overlooking the pool where you can enjoy meals from the vintage Cherner dining set. The open floor plan lounge room provides relaxed living space with garden and mountain views. There’s comfy beds in all three bedrooms with memory foam mattresses, cotton and Marimekko bedding.

The master has a king and its own bath, the middle bedroom a queen, and the third has two twins both with a shared main bath. The main bathroom is spa style with Heath tile, Terrazzo floors and custom built cabinetry made to emulate the original design.  The pool can be heated for your arrival and you can fire up the infrared gas grill and BBQ for poolside entertaining with private mountain and desert views.

Come enjoy the historic Racquet Club Estates neighborhood and the classic modernism of Palm Springs.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

WiFi throughout, TV/DVD with HD satellite package and iPod audio docking system. Housekeeping and laundry facilities, all new appliances including Breville espresso machine.

AROUND

Just minutes from the hustle of downtown Palm Springs, the house is ideally situated close to the city center. Further afield, the San Jacinto mountains rise above the desert floor and are lined with miles of hiking trails at a cooler elevation. Joshua Tree, Indian Canyon and Palm Canyon are also within driving distance of the city for rural getaways.

  • Kris, September 13, 2018

    This was exactly what I wanted… To be specific, it’s a William Krisel-designed, flat-topped, 1959 Hunka love. And to Joann’s credit, it is been gently updated in the most restrained manner possible. Original tile and windows, but with a bit of Heath where needed. Intact breezeway. Pool out of a Hockney imaginary – rectangular and elemental. Hits all the right notes.

    Stylish spot with great touches. Big master bed, smaller room for two, and twin beds in third bedroom. The grill and patio area are great.

    Joann’s place was fantastic inside and out. The pool is so lovely, the rooms spacious and the kitchen well equipped. Highly recommend staying here!

  • JC, April 16, 2018

    Joann’s home was amazing. If you’re looking to have a fun weekend getaway in Palm Springs in a posh mid-century modern home, look no further. Joann is an amazing host, and responds quickly to messages. The check-in process through the August app was straightforward and made coordination with fellow travelers very easy and convenient. The location is great — super close to Downtown Palm Springs, as well as a 5 minute drive to Albertsons to stock up on all the groceries you need. Overall, I’d highly recommend booking with Joann — you have to experience this home (and that pool) for yourself!

  • Chad & Christian, March 31, 2018

    This modern, clean home was great for our family trip to Palm Springs. Check-in was easy, Joann was wonderfully helpful, and WOW, the ginormous yard, comfortable patio, lovely pool … we were thrilled.

  • Barry, March 31, 2018

    Great place, stylish and clean. Nice backyard and pool, large outdoor grill and well equipped kitchen. Close to downtown and other attractions. Quiet place for when the entertainment is done for the night. Host was super responsive and professional. Definitely would return.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Joann’s place in Palm Springs. Everything was as described.

  • Erin, February 25, 2018

    We really enjoyed our stay at Joann’s place. The house was clean and since it was unseasonably cold in the desert, we were so grateful for a heated pool! It was a nice quiet street and a good location. The beds were also very comfortable!

    Erin

  • Jennifer, February 15, 2018

    This was my second time staying here — my friends and I stayed for a full week and hated to leave. This is a classic Alexander home, simply and tastefully furnished. We cooked up a storm and made use of the terrific grill. We really enjoyed the pool — it is such a great size. The neighborhood is so peaceful. A terrific place to spend quality time with friends.

    Jennifer

  • Patti, February 4, 2018

    Very fun place, embraces the mid-century modern local vibe! Lots of room, good stocked kitchen with great appliances, nice pool, sweet beds-very comfy. It’s a very clean, easy, well located neighborhood home. We will stay there again when we are in the area. Great places for four buds to hang for a week and enjoy Palm Springs. Joann is a helpful and responsible hostess. Available all the time!

    Joann’s home is great! In a very quiet part of Palm Springs but just a quick cab ride away to everywhere you want to be!

  • Jennifer, December 13, 2017

    This is well appointed and conveniently located though you will need to drive to get around. The pool was warmed for us in advance and it made for amazing winter swimming with a view of the desert mountains. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. The size of the house was perfect for our family of four.

  • Katherine Comparetto, September 11, 2017

    This house was incredible-
    It was modern and cool, but so comfortable. We had 3 guests total and really enjoyed our 3 relaxing days here. It would comfortable fit another 3 people. 
    Everything was perfect- the house was near great parks, restaurants and grocery stores. I would definitely return for another stay.

  • Michael, September 11, 2014

    Joann was a wonderful host. Her home and property were exactly what we were looking for, a really relaxing weekend in Palm Springs. We had a couple of friends fly in for out of town for a weekend in the desert and it could not have been a more enjoyable weekend. I would love to stay here again the next time I’m in Palm Springs.

    My girlfriends and I had such a relaxing, fun time at Joann’s place! The photos are spot-on, and everything was super clean and exactly as listed. Check-in and check-out were both seamless, and I’d definitely stay here again.

  • Simon, September 5, 2014

    The house was ideal for my family. It is clean and classy with everything working perfectly. The pool was essential as the weather was fabulous…the BBQ was top quality….A/C powerful. The location is quiet and a short drive to all the attractions in Palm Springs. The Joshua Tree NP for instance was under an hour….the PSTramway about 10 minutes. The key was stored for us and Joann responded to questions by email instantly. We were very happy and felt that we had made an a excellent choice….thanks Joann.

  • Sarah, August 20, 2014

    The property was awesome. Cute and stylish. The kitchen was perfect and had everything we needed as we cooked 90% of our meals during our stay and ate al fresco on the patio. They are strict on the noise ordinance however, which is a palm springs ordinance not a house rule, but if having music outside is a deal breaker for you be aware. Overall I would definitely stay here again.

  • Emily, August 19, 2014

    We loved our stay at Racquet Club Alexander in Palm Springs. Staying in an original Alexander home that has been so beautifully renovated was wonderful.

    The house is amazing; super clean, gorgeous interiors, comfy bed, great pool and a well equipped kitchen.

    We will be back!!

  • Kate Rowe, May 23, 2013

    We had a perfectly wonderful stay at this home. Our friends were visiting from NY and we all felt relaxed and comfortable in the home. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen stocked with cooking supplies. We used the BBQ a couple nights which was extremely user friendly and worked like a charm. We enjoyed the heated pool throughout the day into the night. The owners were great to deal with. Overall, highly recommend.

  • karolina, April 1, 2013

    This was our first stay and already we are planning on visiting again. The house was really nicely furnished. The “earthy modern” look makes it very restful. The area itself was very quiet as well.

    We were impressed by how well-stocked and equipped the kitchen was, and loved the mid-century dishes.

    Definitely consider the pool heating option, since nights in Palm Springs are quite chilly, so it cools off quickly. We skipped it since it was only two of us, but would definitely do it for our next stay.

    We have stayed in other Alexander’s nearby and this is by far the nicest. The furnishings are tasteful, to the period and not over the top like some others. The kitchen actually had some decent equipment unlike most holiday rentals. It seemed more like the owners had just moved out for a few days rather than feeling like “just another renter”. The backyard seemed a little bigger than its neighbors.
    We like the Racquet Club area because it gives you the choice of avoiding the downtown crush at busy times.
    Even though it was winter and quite chilly the pool was almost like a jacuzzi and certainly got a lot of use. Fun to go to the top of Mt Jacinta by cable car, go sledding in snow and then have cocktails by the pool in the afternoon. (Be warned go early or the wait for the cable car can be hours!) BTW the owner was very easy to deal with.
