Overview

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.

Find yourself in a home that is the quintessential Palm Springs experience.

Why Ann Keniston chose Palm Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Hip, Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hip mid-century home with Mad Men style located in a quiet cul-de-sac surrounded by other adorable mid-century homes. Loved the Casita with comfy king bed, stylish bedding, separate bathroom, and plenty of towels. Also -- door leads right to the heated pool! Yard is private with a cozy jacuzzi and fire pit. A great place for star gazing with a glass of wine. Can't wait to return and play more of the record collection!

Weekend Oasis in Palm Springs

  • 5 of 5

A getaway weekend with the 5 girls in a beautiful space. Perfect sized rooms, super clean, LOVED the old classic LP's playing on the turntable, nice Kitchen for cooking meals as well as the BBQ, kitchen was clean and has a dishwasher for easy clean up and a fridge with filtered water and ice maker, plenty of cloth napkins. Clean Pool and Jacuzzi, both nice and warm -- we were super relaxed all weekend. Shopping is close by and the Rivera was walking distance for a night cap. I would highly recommend. Also great communications and step by step House Guide by the owner. AC kept the place cool in the main house and in the Casita. Definitely felt like it was home away from home. I look forward to book another weekend away at this Oasis!
