EXQUISITE MID CENTURY MEISELMAN OASIS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Palm Springs - Secluded Meiselman Oasis

3 Bedroom, 3 Baths With Private Yard

Celebrate Palm Springs in classic mid-century style. Built in 1959, this Jack Meiselman house is a luxury salute to the heyday of Mid-Century style. Whether you’re enjoying a sunset martini next to the pool or relaxing inside the cool designer décor, Casa Racquel promises an elegant and authentic Palm Springs experience.

Conveniently located in the Racquet Club Estates neighborhood (one of the first Palm Springs mid-century modern neighborhoods and the former playground of the Rat Pack), the house features a separate casita for extra guests, fire pit, media room, large outdoor area with outdoor shower, and breathtaking mountain views.

Designed and decorated with an upscale eye, this home was built to entertain. The main house features two beautifully decorated bedrooms with private entrances and are conveniently situated at separate sides of the house - allowing for the utmost privacy for vacationing couples. The master bedroom has a King size bed, and the second bedroom features a Queen. The Casita Suite is a separate poolside cottage featuring a King sized master suite with wet bar.

Lounge inside or entertain poolside; there are two indoor/outdoor dining areas, a grill, and loungers for the pool. Surrender to the peace of the desert night or turn up the record player - the house is on a quiet and secluded street. Other popular features include a spacious living room, a media room featuring HBO & Showtime and a Blu-ray player, a generous private yard (Swimsuits optional), a washer/dryer, a vintage wet bar, and a fully-equipped modern kitchen that comes with a Nespresso machine – perfect for that morning sip of coffee while soaking up the fabulous mountain views.

Palm Springs is so close yet so far away from it all. I can be in Paradise in about 90 minutes when I leave work for the weekend. And there's nothing like a quiet morning sipping coffee, dangling your feet in the pool and listening to the birds sing.

People in Palm Springs are happier because everyday is a sunny day and they want to be in Palm Springs.

It's easy to ride a bike and it has a small town feel. But it also boasts some of the best restaurants and nightlife as any big city. Plus a wonderful art museum and Joshua Tree National Park just a short drive away. It's a perfect get away.

RELAX & UNWIND AWAY, BUT CLOSE TO IT ALL

Relax & Unwind away, but close to it all
  • 5 out of 5
Had such a great time celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and our anniversary! Overall it was so relaxing and quiet. PROS: Perfect space to have our friends come for a night and bring their dogs too! Plenty of privacy from the neighbors and from each other too if wanted ;) record collection was awesome, kitchen was wonderfully equipped, pool and Jacuzzi were a great size and loved the floats, fire pit was cozy, grill has a propane reader so there was no guessing how much was left, huge yard for the 2 dogs to run around (and plenty of poo bags ha), outdoor shower, master dual head shower was amazing, nespresso machine was delicious (1st time trying it!), humming birds outside were gorgeous, downtown was a quick (and cheap-$5) uber drive away, we ended up going to Agua Caliente Casino one night which was a pretty cheap uber drive away as well, Albertsons is not a crazy long walk or quick drive down the street
CONS: I could not find an outlet outside (to charge wireless speaker/phones), would have loved to have a couple of fans to circulate the air under the patio and at night time to stay a little cooler rather than lowering the AC temp, although I love real wood fire pits they take a bit longer to get going- a gas pit would be great, really like the privacy of where the Jacuzzi was located but would also have liked if it was a bit closer to the pool

GREAT SPRING BREAK GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
We absolutely loved this house. Very convenient, quiet, and relaxing. The separate casita is such a bonus. The yard and pool are well maintained. We especially appreciated the privacy this home offers its guest. Kitchen is well stocked. Showing our kids how to actually play old records was fun! Great selection of movies and music!!! We found Ann to be very easy to work with, always friendly and very quick to respond to our emails. Highly recommend!!!

TRULY MEMORABLE STAY

  • 5 out of 5
Of the three mid-century moderns we've now stayed in (including a beautifully restored Alexander in Las Palmas) this special property creates an opportunity for a truly memorable stay. We two baby boomers stayed the entire month of February with our
two married children and grandchildren joining us for ten days each.
The house is exceptionally spacious, bright and clean -lots of room to find a quiet spot when there's a large group. The media room is ideal for children to hang out. The galley kitchen (recently renovated) is well equipped for preparing meals and entertaining. The casita worked out very well for my wife and I as hosts, affording a completely private space away from the bustle of the main house. The yard, pool and spa are impeccably maintained. The fire pit is a great added amenity for after dark. Located at the top of a cul-de-sac this rental is exceptionally private yet close to all amenities (a supermarket, drugstore, fast-food outlets etc. is less than five minutes away by car). Also a 7/11, restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance. The owner is helpful and courteous - a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend this property. It will comfortably provide for up to three couples,or less with children.

GREAT WEEKEND IN A GREAT HOME!

  • 5 out of 5
My stay here was great! We definitely enjoyed this extremely chic and fun home. The only problem was the pool didn't get warm but we had a blast anyway and still were able to go in the pool. The pictures do not do this house justice, this house was so cool on the inside and was very spacious and had everything we needed! The owner was so so easy to get ahold of and so helpful. I will definitely rent this home again and will recommend friends and family.

PERFECT VACATION EXPERIENCE...A DOG'S DREAM

Perfect Vacation Experience...A Dog's Dream
  • 5 out of 5
When we arrived to the property (weary from a long drive), we knew right away; we were home. Main house was clean and cool and even had Sinatra on vinyl (Palm Springs at its finest). Extremely comfortable environment for all of my family (Twin boys (25) and our daughter (26)+partner, we're mid 50's). The Casita was a perfect sanctuary for my daughter and her partner, and provided another space to explore for our 11y.o. Jack Russell Terrier, Cooper. We found the location perfect, running accessibility all around, walk to the main strip. Even with the proximity to town and amenities, the sound outside at night was non existent. The pool was a great central spot to spend our days, and the yard was huge! Coming down, we were very worried about our dog and whether he would fit in at this house (he is very picky and very territorial). This fear was put to rest on day 1, Cooper was running his little heart out in the massive back yard- we even taught him to use the dog door (Kind of) and he spend some time in the pool with the help of doggie life jacket found at the house. Bottom line, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the house and it could not have been an easier and stress free experience to set up and settle in. We would certainly recommend this house to any and everyone who is looking for a relaxing trip to Palm Springs. Moreover, to those with dogs, this place is a MUST. Cooper hasnt been the same since we've come back to Canada. Our family will remember this trip for a very long time and it couldnt have been possible without the house living up to (and surpassing) high expectations.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the house. Copper is a very sweet dog and I can't believe someone finally used the doggie life jacket! Thank you for being wonderful guests.
