About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, sleeps 8

Incredible views on the premier street in Vista Las Palmas. This Classic Alexander Mid Century Modern has a rich Hollywood Past (Oscar nominee Jackie Cooper lived here!). Come enjoy the knock down Mountain Views towering behind the house...Stretch out by the saltwater pool and grab a drink- and get ready for serious rest, relaxation and fun! This Palm Springs Alexander was taken down to the studs and restored to its original splendor... Walls of glass and the dead-on mountain views- the ultimate in California indoor/outdoor living. The house offers everything imaginable outside- supercool firepit lounge for you to relax and enjoy the beautiful views at night, an outdoor BBQ island right off the kitchen. The kitchen window opens up all the way so you can connect the outdoor BBQ area to the indoors kitchen- making it one seamless indoor outdoor experience. This house truly offers the best in California outdoor living. Simple, Elegant, FUN!

The classic MidCentury open style of this Alexander makes it a perfect entertaining space. The kitchen and dining area connect to the great room with vaulted exposed beam ceilings, 56' wall-mounted TV, a huge circular couch, large windows with incredible Mountain Views and several sliding glass doors providing an abundance of light inside this hip desert retreat. Bring your Ipod and plug into the home sound system You’ll find the kitchen well stocked with anything you might need to enjoy and have a great time.

The 4 bedrooms comfortably furnished with Queen beds, fresh linens and alarm clocks with Ipod docks. All have their own TV. Two bedrooms have their own private patio space with chairs to relax among the fruit trees. Ensuite baths for the two master suites at opposite ends of the bedroom wing. The bathrooms are new and updated with Skylights and windows to keep things light and bright.

Every last detail of this house is brand new; new bathrooms, new kitchen with stainless appliances and ceaser stone counter tops, new salt water pool and spa.

The views, from inside and out, don't get any better than this.

The location is terrific, walking distance to downtown Palm Springs and the famous Palm Canyon Drive Strip. People are attracted to the neighborhood for the same attributes that made it popular originally. Vista Las Palmas is close to downtown -- 15 minutes by foot -- yet feels remote because it lacks streetlights and through traffic, has all utility lines buried, and is in the shadow of the San Jacinto Mountains.

Residents love gazing at the hills, which provide the neighborhood with an awesome backdrop. You wake up and see the mountains and your pool. Imagine back in the heyday when Jackie Cooper owned this house- Think that Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Frank Sinatra could have cavorted out by the pool... Peter Lawford's open-beamed home is in Vista Las Palmas- imagine Marilyn Monroe stopping by -- and so, people say, did Jack Kennedy.

House is not child proof; the pool is not separated from the house –

not recommended for children under 8

We closely follow the City of Palm Springs Vacation rental ordinance. No Outdoor Music permitted, Max overnight guests 10, max daytime guest 15.

About Margaret Healy

I grew up in and Eichler in Northern California and love Mid Century Modern Architecture. Palm Spring has always had a strong pull for me and I enjoy coming down as much as possible.

Margaret Healy purchased this house in 2006

Why Margaret Healy chose Palm Springs

Vista Las Palmas has a wonderful history and the best views in Palm Springs. When I found this house was in a sad state. It had been remodeled into a Spanish Style Adobe in the 80's and had sat partially demo'd for over a year before I bought it. It took the work of a talented architect to see the true Alexander bones underneath all the mess. I am proud to have brought her back to life- and still can't get over the Mountain Views.

What makes this house unique

This house isn't a rental- it's my dream home. I like to share it with others who will enjoy it as much as I do. The location is awesome too.

Accurate description and photos

  • 5 of 5

Very private pool and patio area with great fire pit for cool evenings. Nice surprise was really comfortable beds. The only flaw is that music outside is not allowed ( clearly posted )any time during the day. This is overly restrictive, more so than the local zoning Bylaws require ( we checked ).

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We spent the 2016 Thx Giving weekend at this great house. The location is amazing, beautiful, upscale neighborhood and very close to the mountains. The views are quite a treat with the mountains, beautiful sunrises especially from the main bedroom or when you're outdoor by the pool, or in the open living room / kitchen. The house can comfortably accommodate 8 people as it was the case for our group. Beautiful architecture, layout, bright kitchen and living room, very well kept and clean, with lots of extra towels, TVs in each bedroom, fast wifi, surround system with Pandora, Spotify, etc.

We enjoyed local hikes, walks to main street coffee shops (we recommend Koffi) and walking in the neighborhood, took the aerial tramway, went on bike rides, we had a blast in the pool. We highly recommend this house and we hope to return soon.

Many thanks to Margaret and Marshall for being so accommodating and helpful before and during our stay.

Loved it! Home, Pool and Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for our 10 year anniversary. It was a dream! We cannot wait to go back! The views are to die for and the home is so well appointed. The backyard draws you out and we had a great time sitting out by the firepit. Will definitely come back!
