Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Palm Springs - The Elrod House

Resort Style Home With Mountain Views Close To All

Located in the historic district of Racquet Club Road Estates, we renovated this home to retain the original mid-century charm, yet updated for today's living comfort. Originally designed by the famous interior designer, Arthur Elrod, this customized home built by the Alexander Construction company, has many unique features not seen in the typical Racquet Club Estates homes.

The home has a true indoor/outdoor feel with walls of windows overlooking the pool and spa and multiple patios. You'll enjoy a large dining area with a table that can seat 8 people comfortably. No 60s home is complete with out a full wetbar to mix your favorite cocktails. The open living room features the original funnel-style vintage fireplace to warm you on a chilly winter night. Multiple seating to entertain and enjoy your favorite movies and media.

The furnishings include a mix of vintage and mid-century styles, including an Eames lounge chair and rocker, vintage teak, Nelson lamps, with lighting.

Each bedroom features a queen sized bed. The two baths have been updated as well; the master bath opens to the outside for easy access to the pool as well as the outdoor shower.

Outside, you'll enjoy a pool that is big enough to swim laps. There's also a built in spa. Plenty of lounging areas to soak in the sun and mountain views. There's a large outdoor living area for lounging.

Dine al fresco on the lania outside the living room, a wonderful place for morning coffee or lunch.

For the cook, you'll enjoy new appliances in a custom designed kitchen, with tons of counter space to spread out. Fully stocked for your vacation entertaining needs.

You'll love the convenience of this home, a short drive to all the local attractions, shopping, dining and entertainment of Palm Springs, while staying in a vintage mid-century home.

Why Colleen Jones chose Palm Springs

I bought this because of its historic qualities, being Arthur Elrod's original home in Palm Springs. It is unique compared to any other home in the neighborhood. I love the location in Racquet Club Estates, one of my favorite mid-century neighborhoods in all of Palm Springs.

What makes this house unique

What I love about this house, is the cozy feel of being in the living room. Walls of glass open the house to the outdoors, and it truly has an indoor outdoor feel to it- The unique fireplace is so cozy at night during a chilly winter evening. I also love the huge back yard, where you can enjoy views of the mountains, some of the best in town.

I rarely take the time to write a review on anything. This wonderful hideaway is everything and then some. Completely private, great amenities, and warm owners who aims to please their clients. In addition, the property manager is extremely accessible and "at your service." If you are looking for a getaway that is clean, comfortable, and in Racket Club Estates, this property is for you. I have stayed at this location twice now and I'm planning on coming back in the near future! Their goal is to provide the utmost customer service!

Everything You Could Want in a Palm Springs House

  • 5 out of 5
Our family just got back from a long weekend at this house and are already thinking about when we could book it again. The pool is amazing and if heated you could swim all night. The rafts are excellent quality and there are even pool toys for the kids. I was worried about the pool being too shaded by the trees, but it was actually perfect and the trees are really beautiful to look up while you're floating on your raft. The house is beautifully decorated and very well stocked. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and more, and the bar is a huge plus. Every little detail was thought through - from little clips to hold your towels / bathing suits when you put them out to dry to plenty of good quality pool towels and even the bathrooms were well stocked with hair dryers, bandaids, etc. I noticed another review commenting on a cigarette odor, but we did not smell anything. The owners were very sweet and we give the manager an A+. He was there to great us when we arrived, showed us around and pointed out a bottle of wine that was waiting for us in the refrigerator. We barely left the house while we were there and our whole family agreed that it was the best vacation we've had in a long time!

Our stay at this house was fabulous. Not only are the owners great, but their manager in Palm Springs was a super guy and was always available to answer our questions, help us with things we needed to figure out, and make sure maintenance came around and kept the yard and pool in tip top shape! My friends and I LOVED this house and its tasteful and authentic retro style. It truly shows pride of ownership. The olive trees are beautiful and provided the shade we needed on hot days and an awesome backdrop to the setting. The yard is totally private surrounded by a tall fence and beautiful hedges. We loved the colored lights in the pool while we swam at night! The owners have thought of everything one might need for their stay, and the beds and bedding are really comfy. The pictures do not do it justice—you will not be disappointed! It is centrally located and it was great to get downtown and out of town in no time. I would definitely return.

Great Property and Great Service

  • 4 out of 5
This property had everything you could possibly want and was in very good condition. All details are considered in terms of kitchenware, pool accessories,etc. - they even had a stocked liquor cabinet. Both the property manager and owner were incredibly friendly, helpful, and willing to go the extra mile. Everything was clean, plenty of linens, and the beds were very comfortable.

The only downside (and reason I didn't rate 5 stars) is the house does have a moderate cigarette odor. Smoking is not allowed, but must have been previously. The odor wasn't that bad, but if you're sensitive to smells it's something to be aware of.

Overall I recommend this property. It's conveniently located to downtown and the amenities and service are fantastic. Will definitely stay here again.

Elrod House

  • 5 out of 5
My initial reaction upon arrival was that we were stepping back 60 years in time.....to another era......pure Mid-Century Modern! This home has been tastefully upgraded to offer all of the modern conveniences without compromising its important historical importance. Furnishings are authentic MCM, comfortable, and attractive. Amenities such as the Pool, Spa, and outdoor sitting areas are comfortably shaded by enormous olive trees offering protection from the sun and creating a wonderful balanced landscape. The house is close to all things Palm Springs and we can't wait to return.
